There used to be about a dozen threads about AC on this forum. If you will do a search, I'll bet you can still find them.

Take a look at their terms of service:

"A. User Content.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, when you submit a text, video, images , AC may modify the format, content and display of such User Content. The foregoing grants shall include the right to exploit any proprietary rights in such User Content, including but not limited to rights under copyright, trademark, service mark or patent laws under any relevant jurisdiction.

In addition to the foregoing, any content you submit to AC for publication shall be subject to licenses granted pursuant to the Independent Contractor Licensing Agreement located at http://www.associatedcontent.com/contractor_agreement.html that you agree to upon submission of the content."

In normal English that means they can use your content without paying you.
That's not a good deal. Move on.
