    @TES Resource Team is there any progress with the promised changes? Basket, review system changes, quality assessment (the one you are working on with academics).
    Also, the authors train authors events - great idea but as these are not accessible for all will the videos be placed online? Thanks

    I totally agree with you. While I am not exactly a minority subject, because I am only currently teaching A-level, and therefore only really working on A-level resources, there are a very small number of teachers who are likely to be interested in my resources, no matter how fantastic they are, especially compared to say primary English or maths. I feel that @tes should consider different tiers for different subjects and key stages. I don't think I can ever hope to reach even Silver unless I start producing resources for primary and KS3 which I may never use myself.

    I guess it's been a long time since anybody posted on this forum, but I thought I'd drop my 2 cents to see if anyone else agreed.

    I've been selling on here for four years, and I felt cheated when TES changed the bar for selling resources on here. I definitely agree that the focus should be on quality resources instead of uploading terrible items that nobody will be buying, but I was a substantially-earning Silver author and now I'm back to Bronze. Because of this, my earnings have drastically dropped.

    After speaking on forums of other sites, almost everybody I was talking to said they've completely jumped ship from this site to another that offers FAR better rates and offers more support. Surely this has had the opposite effect than was aimed for?

    I won't be leaving this site, because it's amazing to have such a topical and bustling hub for news, jobs etc. that's UK based, but I find it a massive shame that something which could make TES, and teachers alike, some extra money.
