If improvement is possible, recommendations can be made and hopefully good ideas will be reviewed and given consideration. Many efforts to produce something “fair” fail because there are simply so many variables one cannot see.

My caution is that change presents challenges because tweaking this may then be “unfair” to those who have scrambled to adjust to the previous change. I personally have not examined the politics of it all and focused on writing quality material and building a following of readers who expect it to deliver something of value.

Having been online since early AOL (1990?) I have seen a lot of communities come and go. Already on Medium I have seen publications come and go in the two years I have been contributing. I have to believe that the people running this platform will try to do their best to make it work for all, so if you are able to identify ways to improve and share that, good. But in my 40 year career I have never worked for a company that I could actually learn the ropes and understand the “why” of all their policies in just two months. In one instance even after 18 months I wasn’t fully qualified to write a letter to our distributors other than address basics.
