I noticed some writers got more than one project to work on…is this allowed in the new dispensation?


Hey @EmiriDbest - when working in Trello and approving myself using the guidelines, I began approving 1 tutorial per community member to help evenly distribute the tutorials. The new voting process is a separate idea where the community is deciding which tutorials are in highest demand and so it is possible that someone has proposed multiple tutorials with a high number of votes. For this week, I approved based on which tutorials had the most votes resulting a few members receiving multiple tutorials. I do believe there are many benefits to this but if you’re interested, I opened a discussion here where we can chat about possible improvements to the new process if you’d like to propose any updates.


Duly noted @joenyzio …with the clarification, i think its a good move.
