I was part of the beta and I complained about plenty during feedback, I'm sure. I'm happy to see some of the things I complained about are now fixed, or appear to be in process of being fixed. I can't speak for anyone else who tested the beta, but at least in this one regard, I feel like the input I gave was not a waste of time, and in fact, was maybe even useful to some degree.

That said, I'm also curious (as someone else pointed out here earlier) how this new "seamless" layout will affect our pay - for those of us enrolled in the MPP? I've been part of the partner program since basically its inception, and I've come to rely on that little bit of income every month. I wasn't terribly affected by the payment reconfiguration a while back, but I'm definitely concerned now.

Since our pay is figured through member reading time (among other factors that are still about as clear as mud to me), is it true that if other members simply scroll through our page and don't click on our actual stories, then it won't count as "reading time" that figures into our pay?
