New policy on editing articles which are poor qualityWe have been doing multiple levels of editing on many poor quality articles posted by some of our members. We spend a lot of money, in fact, more money than we pay to the authors, as editing charges to make some of the articles readable and add value.
Going forward, we will leave the poor quality articles in the New Submission status for about 2 weeks. During this period, such articles will be visible to search engines and we will monitor if they pick up any traffic at all. If there are chances of getting traffic during this period, we will use our language editors and technical editors and make the articles better. Poor quality articles which fetch no traffic within 2 weeks will be rejected and those authors may not be permitted to write any more articles.
All articles written in good language will be approved faster, whether it gets traffic or not.
