One Article Every 48 Hours

Postby Fergal » 28 Nov 2018, 06:51

Please note that we have changed our article posting limit per member, from one article per day to one article every 48 hours. We hope that this will help increase the quality of articles posted in our articles section.

Thanks for your understanding and support.

Do you really think that it will help? How do you think that it will increase the quality of the articles?

I think if it helps forumcoin sustain then yes I appreciate the change. You may also have to set the topics for articles and even for threads. More in demand keyword specific threads and less chat threads would definitely help.

If people can post articles daily, some will do it daily and soon run out of ideas and then still continue posting articles because they can. If they can only post an article every 2 days, those initial ideas will take twice aslong to work through before they hit the stage where they are desperate and then will only release 1 low quality article every 2 days rather than daily.

Ultimately if users don't improve the quality then the only other alternative will be to either remove article writers en masse or disable article submissions totally. Ultimately users need to start think "Is it worthwhile abusing this now for a few extra cents and then lose the feature or don't abuse it and over the long run earn more legitimately". Users think to0 much about the short term about all the sites they are part of and make as much as possible in anyway possible and then act surprised and blame the owners when things get changed. 1 article a day doesn't mean you have to post 1 article a day. 10 posts a day doesn't mean you have to post 10 posts a day. Some users use them as a target and churn out anything to hit them to earn the most they can that day yet all they are doing is affecting their long term income especially when we move to rewarding users based on quality rather than a fixed rate per post. It will be those users earning alot less per post than most other users while the good users will earn more.

This sounds good also articles that get a lot of views, search engine traffic , social media and forums traffic should earn more right? since those are the things that make more ad revenue? Just posting an article and it not doing anything isn't worth much I think.
This is a good change. I might be interested in writing articles. and I can get a lot of traffic through my social media sites also to them. :D

48 hours is a good time window to be creative and post quality articles. I am yet to start here as article writer and hope to do it soon. Posting daily might make one run out of idea and even go low with quality.

I think any article worth a read needs a certain amount of time, research, editing, proof reading and such before it gets posted.. I don't think I can personally churn out an article a day.. even though 500 words is not much.
I will get to work here Asap.

I think once in 48 hours is fine. In fact coming up with one or two good articles in a week is some achievement, I think!
