I already had the Top Tier Qual, but didn't obtain the Beta Qual when it was first issued. I'll admit, I'm not as prolific as others on writing articles - My writing is on the slow side and have a full time job on top of this, so I don't produce at the high volumes others do. I'm sure that's primarily why I didn't initially get the Beta Qual. I was really bummed that I couldn't work those hits when that happened, and hoped the test would gain me access to them. Well, yay, I can access them now, but now the pay is awful and my access has nothing to do with my test score. I am going to continue writing of course, but mainly to gain more experience and get to a point where I can produce this type of writing quickly. I am also curious to see how the tiered structure pans out for me. Looking at the Crowdsource forum, it sounds like the qualification level can change daily. At least they are compensating for the Editor Test that just went up... Thanks for listening! I'm a reasonable person until I feel like someone has wasted my time, so this current snafu of theirs struck a nerve.
