I must say that when the announcement about royalty tiers came out, I was encouraged by the raft of proposed improvements, as a sweetener to the tier changes which led to a decrease in royalty revenues for the majority of authors. Whilst there was clearly a lot of anger about the proposed changes, I could see that investing in, and focusing on, quality, would improve the platform overall, and would lead to an increase in revenue for quality-producing-authors in the long run. An overhaul of 'TES recommends', better vetting of resources and subject specialist resource reviewers all sounded like great ideas... In the intervening 3 months since the tier change was announced, I've been disheartened by TES' lack of progress in terms of proactively improving the quality of resources on TES. Forgive my cynicism, but it seems that the only implemented initiatives for 'improving quality' have (rather conveniently) also been equally driven towards increasing total revenue to the site: namely the royalty tier change. Equally, author train author events and author academies are all well and good, and I commend the efforts of authors to improve their inventories, but only a very few number of authors can access these events, and I wonder at their actual impact in the face of some deeper structural issues within TES... I've asked this question before and I'll ask it again: why isn't TES addressing the issue of a colossal (and ballooning by the day) inventory? Since the tier change, I've deleted near on 40 resources and am currently in the process of improving the rest. Will this improved quality lead to increased exposure for me? Key word searches reveal that I'm still competing with masses of poor quality and often irrelevant content. I suspect that other quality focused authors are trying their best to live up to the values you have promoted. However, with the inventory and search features in the state they are in, what impact will author-led improvements make? TES needs to completely overhaul its inventory and search algorithms. The current system is clearly ineffective and leads to a negative experience for users on the site. Imagine if you are a buyer looking for a quality resource and instead have to trawl through pages of irrelevant and poor quality content? I apologise for the rambling post but I'm sure there are others out there who share my frustration. If TES truly believes in improving quality, then it needs to play its part in the process, and invest in improving quality, instead of simply profit skimming and expecting authors alone to solve the platform's problems.
