Laura Routh, Claire Cardwell and Joyce Bowen: Many thanks again for your kind engagement. Just an FYI: I was designated a “Top Writer” in Government, Journalism and Social Media for many months — only to see it surprisingly disappear in October. Poof and gone! It would sure be nice to know more about the editorial criteria for such apparently arbitrary decision making by Medium Staff or receive an email about it. This would improve brand loyalty and user satisfaction on @Medium, particularly for members of the Partner Program who are paid customers. cc Siobhan O'Connor Ev Williams
