It seems to me that Publications could potentially become significant topic competitors to Niches. And why call them "niches" if you don't actually have a niche because someone else has one too.
I don't see how they compete. If someone wants to pay a publication 5 dollars per month of their own money, for the opportunity to read their privately published information how is that stopping the actual paid subscriber form still voting over at all the free content on the Fried Chicken niche. There will be so many more people that prefer to read the free content on the niche. Those people will vote and the rewards pool will be divided up just like normal.
They are separate. Publications does not preclude anyone from voting on the niches of the same topic. But Publications is precluding people who don't want to pay to read content.
