Thank you Bharath for that message. But, your suggestion would not be practical as it would lead to some sort of partiality towards the AE and forum contributions. Member of the week and member of the month awards are meant to felicitate the overall contributions of a member. From that point of view, it may not be feasible to leave out the resources section. On the other hand, why won't our members attempt their expertise in the articles section?
It isn't a tough task. I had no prior experience article writing. I just tried a couple of them in the beginning and it clicked. Moreover, our editors do support new writers through suggestions. Mt advise to new members would be to cultivate the habit of creating a good content.
Live....and Let Live!
