How Do You See Techulator After a Couple of Years?As the day doesn't pass without having a look at this site, keeping in touch with our fellow members and checking the scoreboard, looking every now and then for the latest announcements, things keep occurring in mind, about how Techulator would fare after a couple of years.
I see it on an equal board, rather say in a better position than Hubpages, Techradar, CNET and so on. But what are the things we should make to bring this change?
When it is only Techulator which pays for every post, it can easily boast itself to be there before any of the other names mentioned above. But as a common member I felt a few hitches could be the reason behind holding our site back from the popularity it deserves.
I have experienced a few differences myself, which might be a common scenario for other new comers.
Many of them might not have enjoyed the magic of this site till they could secure a payment in their account. And for newcomers, this might seem quite difficult as their contributions keep rotating within the two categories of New Submission and Pending for a long time before they get approved. While other sites outright reject inappropriate articles, Techulator offers enormous chance to the newcomers to learn.
But I think at times it works against the site's popularity.
Not every good writer may have a good html expertise. So when their articles go to the pending status multiple times, that causes a doubt in their mind and they lose out their patience. Specially when editors don't come up with all the errors at one time, it really becomes hard for the writers to go through the process and wait till it gets approved. So they leave hope as well as their articles behind and forget about it. They don't realize the opportunity they are missing.
But I think, few small changes can change this scenario.
1) There can be one Model Article with a proper format, which can be downloaded by the new comers and they can simply copy and paste their article within that and submit. (Like our invoice)
2) Articles should go to "Pending" status only for further grammatical corrections and not for formatting.
3) Editors should point out all the errors at a time.
This was purely my personal opinion, which I had in mind from the beginning. Now since we all are discussing out many things and Techulator is changing for good, I thought this time to be ideal for sharing this.
I ask everybody to share their views as well.
