Identify paid contributors

by David Beroff 10 replies
Since it seems that Management refuses to stop the practice of hiring article writers for this site, would you please at least consider the idea of marking the accounts in red, (much like moderators get an official, visible tag), identifying them as being Paid Contributors? This would at least offer your membership some level of transparency. Thank you.

    One thing that seems to stand out about them is that most
    have a silly username, and they don't have sig files.
    Maybe they are even bots.
    Looks like they have been testing them in the test forum for months now.
    Maybe this is the end result.

    I get what you are suggesting, but pretty much all you have to do is read their silly posts and they are outed, aren't they?

      Sure, but this would force a level of honesty, much as paid ads are required by law to be identified as such.

    Do you suppose it may be easier to identify the unpaid contributors?

    Legit forum profiles are the new minority by design.

    Welcome to change.

    Just an update here. All of our admin and moderator accounts are now tagged and our names should appear bolded and in red. Due to how we cache things, it might take a while to propagate to older pages, but it should appear eventually.

    We're not currently running any paid contributions, and I'll make sure that we tag any while I'm here. I don't really think that sort of thing belongs in the main forum anyway, it'd be more like blog content.

    Thank you, Tim, and thank you for restoring this thread.

    Are you saying that "Members" like neshaword are no longer paid contributors?

      We're not currently paying anyone for contributions, and that includes neshaword. As best as I can tell we haven't gotten any paid contributions for at least a couple of months.
