Hey Jill Ebstein,
thanks for commenting 😊
As for the splitting fees, I thought simply dividing an amount among all authors at the end of a billing cycle, leaving any unsplittable decimals on the article until the next cycle comes.
As for your suggestion regarding commenting, I agree. It would be useful to actually get some input from your readers. But it’s a double-edged sword. As an editor, I, for example, realize that my time is getting pretty limited in regards to spending much time on a single article.
As I’m writing this, I got 7 articles awaiting processing. I usually also tweet them out as I read them, so our Twitter followers will be able to pick them up too.
I’ll bring this up in our Slack channel. But forcing interaction would be against Medium rules. So we can really just raise awareness.
Thank you again for your input! 😁
