This might not be the best place to post this, but since Wowace and Curse are now forever intertwined, I figured I would ask here. What exactly is the deal with the Author Rewards Program? I read the FAQ and wound up with more questions than when I started.
The FAQ mentions "any active author who signs up" is eligible. Where do I sign up? Do I actually have to sign up, or by being an author is that automatic?
Also, although the algorithm is secret (for obvious reasons, we're all very smart people) is there a way to see how many points you've accumulated so far? Have points even been handed out at this point or is that still something for down the road.
The current plan is that authors will need to opt-in to the program. And no it is not possible to do so at this time. Points have not been awarded yet. We're testing our calculations at this point to get an idea of what we're looking at and tweaking rewards. The first points will be awarded roughly a month after Premium goes live.
Feel free to ask questions here. I'll answer as many as I can :)
