Change in Policy Regarding Content with Canonical Links

Service: Narrative

Today, we announced a change in our policy regarding content with canonical links.  Beginning in October, content that does not originate from Narrative will no longer be eligible for Content Creator rewards.  In other words, while you are welcome to cross-post content on Narrative that you originally posted elsewhere, it will no longer qualify for rewards. You can read more about why we decided to do this here

I've read the post, and I've asked for two points of clarification in the comments section. Will the Team be more likely to answer such questions in the comments section there, or should I post my questions here?

I ask these questions with some urgency, as I'm going to be traveling for business from Thursday to Monday, arriving home on a red-eye flight Monday morning. October 1 is the next day, and I don't want to accidentally be in violation of the new rules. I need to know what I need to do and figure out how to fit it into my schedule today and tomorrow. I won't have any other available time until October 1.

So, clear ground for cheap content. Without the use of multiple and effective quality metrics (the current metrics are clearly more popularity metrics) and differentiation of content types, why spending hours on quality content when it has to compete with fast-posts supported by voting circles? Spending a few minutes on anything in front of a camera and being part of a voting group is now more rewarding than anything else.

Republishing was the only advantage given to quality content. Now it's gone. Exposure is not worth mentioning, at the current stage, in comparison with established platforms.

Without a way of monetizing quality content and receiving exposure for it, in comparison to content easy to produce, cheap content will dominate even when publications will be there. And this will become the trademark of Narrative, with time.

Also, consider that Medium - different, but certainly the major competitor in the field of quality content - rewards republished content too.
