A Few Concerns I Have
I am sure by now all of you have read the updates about what will be happening with the site as far as members go, and some of the ideas are good ones. One being delete accounts that are not active for a certain period of time which is a good idea as the people who left the site obviously left for a reason. I just read an article by &Ruby3883 and she has some valid points in there.
However there are two issues that are bothering me about the new updates.
One being the English factor, I am afraid that people who want to join the site and do not pass the test see it as being discriminated against because English is their second or third language. It is human nature to look at how one person writes and see how you can better yourself. Another thing yes here are a lot of people who have English as a first language but have you ever noticed that UK English has a certain way of writing things, U.S English has a certain way of writing things, and so does South Africa, which is where I am from. There are a lot of different styles of English out there. So which would indeed be the correct way to write an article?
The other thing I have a worry about is that elitecodex mentioned and I quote “We just want to ensure that people who join can post the types of content the ad networks are looking for”
I am just wondering what the networks are looking for, are they looking for reviews on products or long debates about certain subjects, are they looking for long articles that drag on, or short and sweet article that people will take the time to read, and that they can possibly relate to? If so does this mean that personal posts will not be allowed?
