Hung up at Elance and don't know what to do
I found a writer I like at Elance and accepted his proposal, asking him to send me the first 3 articles as soon as possible and he agreed to my terms saying I will get my 3 articles within a day.
That was the 23d of Dec and today is the 28th and no articles.
I looked around in Elance (my funds are in escrow) and I found a thing called "Milestones" and figured that is probably the problem..... So I tried to fill out the Milestones section only to be confused by the instructions that said click on Fund which I couldn't see anywhere, only a button that says release funds which leaves me totally confused.
I sent a message to the writer or provider on the instructions to the provider with my email address and no response.
I sent messages to Elance "contact us" asking what to do only to be given a ticket number and hope I get a responce with in a week and hope I don't have to ask another question, I also wrote a message in the Elance forum.
It seems at the rate I'm going, this 12 week coarse might turn into a year because there are a lot more technical things to digest before I get a working web site up and running.
I also realize nobody works during the holidays including me but I think I should have received my 3 articles by now so I can complete week 3 and my frustration level is rising to wait so long for any help.
Can anyone give me some advice Larry
