After much deliberation and feedback from the steward community, we have decided that the rating algorithm will be tweaked to favor writers based on how much of their earnings they’ve contributed to our newest charity partner: “The Helium Development Team’s Beer and Pizza Fund.”

Members can also retroactively contribute any amount of their available balance via their Earnings & Payments page in addition to donating future earnings for some or all of their articles.  The amount of the contribution relative to other members of the community will determine the modifier applied to your account.

The Helium Dev team wishes to thank the community in advance for their generosity towards their cause.  The Helium team feels this new charity partner will greatly increase the amount and frequency of future features.
