Hi, I got an email from TES, saying that if I went up a level Silver -> Gold before the 31st July, I'd be entered into a draw to win £1000. I thought I'd put my reply here as it might be worth having the debate. Hi. Just to feedback that I do not think these kind of promos are helpful or useful. I could become a gold author by 21st of July, buy uploading all my resources, regardless of quality. I don't want to though. Each resource I upload goes through a very rigorous process. You'll see this if you look at my profile. There is a lot of stuff on TES that should not be there. £2 resources that are a single letter or image. This kind of promotion just encourages that. How can my resources sell when they're drowned out by, quite frankly, tat? As a tes author I'm increasingly becoming disillusioned with the lack of focus on quality, along with the unwillingness to deal with the negative publicity caused by a few high profile copyright violations. To the point that rather than become a gold author, I am thinking of removing my resources, even the free ones, altogether. This would be a shame. I've been a regular contributor through the years with a reasonably large view and download count. I think a lot of authors feel this way.
