    Are there age restrictions?

  • That one per week rule is a good one. You guys post plenty of articles every week, you really don’t want to have much more or it would overwhelm readers. You can always know about how many active contributors you need with that rule.

    I know you guys treat the contributor pool kind of like a early experience mill, but I think if you really sat down and worked out prize winning formulas for compelling features you could probably aspire to be a prestigious institution.
