However, this being said, we are working on developing an alternative to the CM program that will ultimately take the shape of a regularly published e-Zine, as well as quite possibly ATS-branded editorial appearing in offline publications. Both concepts involve typical pay-per-article arrangements that would be typical of a newspaper or magazine... and we anticipate former CM's will be at the top of the consideration list when we look for material.
I hope this will end up being a much more higher profile vehicle and incentive for our members to spend extra time creating original work, and receive appropriate reward... a reward that should ultimately be much more significant than Google ads on threads in a CM forum.

How about a thread that would direct you to the post that get applause? If the admin thinks it worthy enough for points, shouldn't we be able to see these post. Bringing attention to applaused posts might give the newer members an idea of the type of writing that is ATS best.

Although I do not give much importance to titles, I hope the CMs do not feel bad about it, why isn't any of them here in this discussion?

We have also learned that many of our "general" members are every bit the expert any one else is and we intend to focus our energies on expanding the awareness of our general membership's genius, writing and perspective.
