The lights seem to be out at Rookmedia (opinion, not allegation), now that I'm in line for another payout. My 'acct exec' Ray Goodwin doesn't seem to be contactable (over the past month or so), and there's no apparent link on the home page for help or support - dead air - radio silence - like lying at 1200 feet with the hull about to be crushed, waiting for a clearance diver to tap the outer hull with a hammer - oops, another strained metaphor.

Have not been with them in a good while. I always got paid on time from them though. I have been with ParkingCrew and mailboxPark for one name that is doing well.
Often did in the past (apart from one glitch when it changed hands) but there just doesn't seem to be anyone home at the moment. if there were they might have got in touch with me right here already. My account with them goes back at least 10 years and I have circa 300 names with them

mine is from around 04-06 so at least 10 years. But the parking business is not what it was at one point.
G'day - no, the parking business is not.

However, this thread is concerned with whether Rookmedia still exists or whether it might have done a flit as they say in Glasgow (pronounce: Glaz-go). There is no obvious 'support' link on the home page and my acct exec, Raymond Goodwin has not responded to emails for some weeks. he used to be quite responsive.

Ironically, smartnames appears to have taken over either Rookmedia or the traffic thereof with immediate manyfold positive effects on revenue, begging the question of why revenue was so low under Rookmeia's tutelage. One reason could be that Rook was only assigning pennies on the dollar to publishers but how can one possibly audit a parking company's revenue and revenue split/s.

it all seems rather murky. They were never able to provide a simple accounting of revenues in a standard DR CR BAL book-keeping format.

Have i been conned? A simple reply from Rookmedia would belie that conclusion and thus I wait.

Here's an email I sent to them a few minutes ago:


To
Raymond Goodwin
From: urlowner@gmail.com
Subj: Raymond Goodwin, Esq., I need to hear from you

Without Prejudice

Bit of a crisis looming, Ray. There doesn't seem to be anyone at Rookmedia to communicate with. Are you still there? Is the company still a going concern? Rookmedia has a fiduciary responsibility to its publishers which includes providing reasonable support; advising publishers of what documentation is required to ensure payment and making timely payment according to the explicit terms of the contract inhering twixt Rookmedia and its publishers.

Can you please write back since I have heard nothing from previous emails for approximately 4-6 weeks.

I need to have this email on record to show that i have made reasonable attempts to contact your goodself/Rookmedia to ask the following:

(a) what documentation do you require before making payment to me?

(b) has my account met the payment threshold yet?

These are routine, straightforward questions, Raymond, and I look forward to your timely reply.

Kind regards,

Carl

Pretty sure they all moved to smartname.com after the merger. DS site is a ghost town
