Following the discussion in this thread about the most annoying type of articles on GH, we're going to do some experiments to see if the quality of content that gets featured here can be improved.
During the next week, we'll be testing content against an internal set of standards for quality. We'll publish these standards after the test.
The result of this will likely manifest itself in the following ways:
a. Moderated Posts & Questions:
The number of posts and questions that make it to the Latest Page may drop dramatically.
So if your submission did not show up on GrowthHackers during this week, it's likely because it didn't meet the internal standard we're testing against.
b. Unmoderated Posts & Questions:
Submissions that don't meet this internal standard will be removed from the Latest Page. If the moderating team notices that a low-quality post has somehow made it to the Trending page, it will be removed from there as well.
Please don't take it personally or be offended if your submission doesn't make the cut or is removed. Always remember that we're working to keep GrowthHackers content of as high a quality as you expect it to be.
So you may see the quantity of posts featured on GH go down noticeably. Our hypothesis is that fewer posts will not be an issue as long as what does show up is only high-quality content.
The How (you can help):
If you find content that:
a. shows up on GH during this test wasn't worth your time - flag it and let us know. Also tell us why you flagged it.
b. you posted should not have to be removed, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. You could also submit an "Ask GH" if you'd like to discuss it publicly.
This starts tomorrow, April 29th and will end on May 6th.
