We have outgrown our membership levels and it’s time to add some new levels to differentiate the level of trust and quality that each member represents to us and to others. Here are the new proposed membership levels:
|Membership Level||Formerly Called||Number of Articles||Represents|
|Bronze||Basic||First 10||Newbie Members|
|Silver||Basic Plus||25 (or more)||Probation|
|Gold||Up To 100||Quality Without Volume|
|Platinum||Platinum||Unlimited||Volume With Less Quality|
|Diamond||100 to Unlimited||Quality With Volume|
The tentative plan is to keep Platinum members where they are, and begin the process to define how high the quality must be to be considered a ‘diamond’ level member. Speed of approvals will start at Diamond and work our way down to Bronze in terms of priority. The new Gold level acknowledges high quality articles from authors who have no desire to be high volume, but if they were in Gold status after Silver (previously called Basic), they could move to Diamond after 100 articles are accepted.
What do you think so far?
