TMBOA Authors –
As this blog has grown, I’ve occasionally had to make course corrections along the way to try to make it as productive and helpful as possible for the community of authors who participate. Some features have come and gone, layout has changed, etc. There are a number of folks who have been with me since the very beginning where for the first month or so we had five books listed and not very many tags as you can imagine.
There are a number of submissions, spam, pending requests, etc. I try to work through on a weekly basis and at times I have had to play significant catch up. With help from those active in this TMBOA community I’ve tried to listen and make improvements.
So a change moving forward will be to limit the number of books submitted by each author or member to five. I do think it is reasonable for authors to submit multiple books and get tags for them even though they may only be able to give one vote per tag in return. However, the number received should not be overly skewed versus the number given.
Looking through the site, the majority of authors have one book while a fair number have two listed. There a few more prolific writers who have more and by limiting to five submissions, I think I’m covering the huge majority of members in this community.
I will be reviewing past submissions and overtime adjust the site to reflect this policy.
Thanks for everyone for their continued support of TMBOA. This is only successful when we all help each other and for that I’m gratefull to you all.
Update (10pm CST 17 Sept): As a result of this policy change, 33 books have been removed from the TMBOA site.
