    Gold to silver.

    Personally I think the £6000 threshold is far too high.

    Gold to silver. Outrageous that to get back to gold we have to sell £6,000 worth of resources. Shame on Tes for raising the bar so high that the majority will never reach gold status ever again. I feel so sorry for those of you that have plummeted down to bronze. :(

    Going from Gold to Bronze. The pride I have taken in my resources has taken a deep knock... It would be interesting to see some of those authors on here, who are going straight from Bronze to Silver or Gold. Not to judge successful authors, but out of interest and curiosity.

    Going from Bronze briefly into silver, and then back to Bronze, most probably forever.
    I am not too sure if I want to continue here, but what alternatives are there really?

    From gold to bronze! I got rid of the gold button on my blog! Not going to waste my time on TES anymore since I have always made pittance in here.

    Clearly the results showing so far indicate that there are far more losers than winners in the new author tier system!! :(:(:(

    Thanks for participating.
    At this time of reading, exactly 30% of respondents have indicated that their royalty level will either remain unchanged or increase.

    It'd be nice if the authors jumping from bronze to gold would contribute.... anyone...? Bueller...? :rolleyes:

    From what I understand from the ones I know, they are not spending any time watching the forums about this topic as they are happy with the changes which is why they are not contributing. It is mainly people who are unhappy that are contributing but that is by no means the majority of authors on TES. There are thousands of authors on TES and it is only 30 or so who are upset enough to contribute to the discussion making it look like they are in the majority when clearly the largest majority are just not contributing. It may be because they are not interested enough, they don't know about the changes, they don't think it will affect them enough to bother getting involved or they are happy with the changes. No way of knowing but it is safe to assume that the viewpoints of the few on this forum can not possibly be taken as an accurate cross section of the TES author population as it is only those who feel strongly enough about it who will contribute.

    I'm looking forward to revisiting this in a year's time to see how the tunes change.

    Doubtless I'll be seeing great prosperity all round...
