I agree with you that members are not contributing very much. I suggested one thing that to start resource contest. So that members contribute with interest.
I completely agree with both of you that members are not contributing here. There might be n number of reasons and one reason which I came to know was that there was no timely response to their queries or timely editing of their articles. However this is not the case now. From June onwards I am the Webmaster of this site and there is no delay in editing of articles or response to the query of articles.
Hi Faizan I have already told you that we are currently running revenue sharing program through which we share 50% of the site revenue. I think no contest can provide better opportunity than this. And still if you want some contest to be run, you can still suggest the topics.
You have got a very good point here that people contribute because they get response to their articles. However in the sites like indiastudychannel, there are contributors from all over India and there are topic ranging from all the corners of India. But we can't do this here at HamaraUP. We have to stick to topics related to Uttar Pradesh. However if we keep contributing good articles, surely new members will come and there will be good responses also.
Definitely you are right. First of we need to create awareness. For example take facebook. Everybody wants to be on facebook and they also know about it. Similarly we have to create awareness about HamaraUP. If we start telling our friends that we have such a great site where we can contribute articles of our interest and even earn some cool pocket money, that would be great.
I have a question, Can i post local news in this site e.g local cricket news, other local sports news or other news?
