Writer Reward Count Update
Since we announced the new Writer Reward System yesterday, we’ve heard from a number of writers who were concerned that our process for establishing starting levels and points didn’t take into account their last several weeks of work. After giving this some thought, we agree.
Today, we’re going to be making a one-time update to better reflect points earned in the last several months, when we started our Top Writers Awards. So, any writers that have earned medals, top writer awards or consistency awards since May 1 will retroactively receive points for their work.
All the work you did prior to May 1 was calculated by the old system, which determined your ranking on the site (Contributor, Correspondent, etc.). We factored these old titles into the new system, which gives you credit for all of your past work on B/R.
For those that like math, your point totals today are based on this:
Prior title + points earned since May 1 = your new writer ranking on B/R
