Hello talal0khalid.
     The last I heard from the administrators was that they did want to resume the "Share the profits" policy, if they can.  They are keeping track of statistics, so they can make a fair distribution, once they get the new payment policies implemented.  Instead of a small payment each month, you would get one large payment once the policy is in place, then back to smaller payments each month.
     Even if they eventually decide that “Sharing the profits” is too difficult to manage, or that it creates more problems than it solves, ShareCG would still be a free file hosting site.  Although I would prefer to get paid, rather than not get paid, I would still stay with ShareCG, because this site is much more friendly to uploaders and downloaders than many of the other free file hosting sites.  I also haven’t heard of any other free file hosting site that pays its content providers.
     The last I heard, they were still deciding how to distribute the wealth fairly, without encouraging cheaters and content pirates from abusing the system.  This is quite a difficult task.  For every method you can think of to prevent cheating and theft, there are ways to get around it.  Finding a set of methods to discourage those who abuse the system, while keeping the system friendly to both uploaders and downloaders may be near impossible.  I’ve already posted ideas of how to reward those who use the system responsibly, while punishing those who abuse it, but haven’t received any feedback on my ideas yet.  This could be because ShareCG hasn’t read my posts, or because they are too polite to say what they really think of my ideas.  I hope it’s because they have just been too busy to read them.  They do respond promptly when I send them a message through “Contact Us”, so I know they haven’t abandoned us.
     They did not give an exact date, or even an approximate date when the new policies would be in place.  They have posted messages to the board that they are considering a two-tier system.  This means that not everyone would get paid, just those who make it to the second tier.  I don’t know if this will be a few people, dozens of people, or hundreds of people, or even thousands.  The two-tier system is not definite, but it’s the only method I remember JakeHeller posting as a possible criteria for payment.
