Well, an update:
Our new Basic or Platinum Membership has helped us sort the quality articles from the “not so quality”… and the system appears to be working.
Platinum authors are the ones with the Yellow star next to their name.
Sometime in February…
We are going to raise the bar to require Platinum members to send in at least 1 article per month to retain their status.
A large percentage of Platinum members have only sent in one article to date and we want to reward the authors who have at least 12 or more articles to send in per year by denying the status to those who don’t.
What do you think?
Good idea or no?
