HOW WE WORK | "POЁNTS" SYSTEM OF CREATIVE BARTER

What are poёnts:
Each poёnt (p.) is a result of your creative activities in our network: urgency, type, quality and amount of your creative works / tasks made for us, for yourself or for other persons. We use it as invisible assets for exchanges between our participants (for example: your service for gathered poents of another person) and for granting bonuses from network.

Alternative: but of course you can use exchange of services (service for service) between participants as an alternative to not spend your gathered poёnt and keep them for special bonuses from the Senior staff.

Limitation: to avoid any bulk submissions for gathering X amount of poёnt we have limitation - you can submit only new stuff, stuff created for us or with us, and a limited amount of old unpublished stuff (it depends on size of network and it's work possibilities).
Choose an option for creative activities:
Choose a scheme of your activity
Choose an option for evaluating your stuff and activities:
We can use alternative system of evaluation terms, for example: bad (0-20% of maximum poёnts for this activity), so-so (30-50%), good (60-80 %), ingenious (90-100%). Example: you can gather from 1 to 8 poёnts for writing a poem, if you will write a bad poem we can grant you with 0-1,6 poёnts.

Penalty: in any evaluation of your stuff there may be penalties for authors with bad and so-so results. We will ban you for the same activity for 3-12 month if we feel you have not progressed as a writer and we will ask you to revise / rewrite / edit and improve your work.
Because you can't translate Goethe in Google Translator or steal 100 unpublished poems from your shy neighbor and then ask us for 1000 poёnts.

Limitation: you can't gather poёnts by doing something for or with a bad or mediocre material. The only way is to improve it or translate with improvement (with possible -50% penalty). Please don't do any art, design, illustration for boiler plate material as both the artwork and verse will not be published.

EXAMPLES & FAQ

Possibility of buying poents: yes, you can buy poёnts to get our services. It must be discussed in a personal capacity. But we won't publish bad quality stuff even for a million of $. So you have to be really good writer (also lazy and high-income) to use this option.

Denying of exchange: if you don't want to help another person who requested your help and gained poents for it you can deny him/her but in this case you will get bad reputation soon with all after-effects.

Can I code something or design a web?
Yes, by our guidance.

My work is polished and clean but I have no poёnts, what should I do?
You can translate it / send for evaluation by staff / proofread, edit, improve it.

"Living issue" system or how to lead-out a magazine.

Each our issue is a living structure with different options for publishing, it depends on how good were you in the creation process, in other words on the quantity and quality of the material. Using this logic the issue can be even rejected and held in abeyance due to poor quality, and yes, even the International edition can fall. So let's figure out these ways of publishing.

1) Mini-standalone edition with one language | 30-45 pages
2) Additional edition on hold with one language | Less than 30 pages | can be added to another types of editions.
3) Duet edition | from 60 pages | with a combination of two additional editions in one.
4) Billingual edition | from 60 pages | with translations of all stuff to one additional language
5) Stand-alone edition with one language | more than 60 pages
6) Multilingual edition | from 100 pages | with translations to 5 languages and more
7) Kaleidoscope stand-alone edition | combination of four and more additional editions (like Pan-Asian) | More than 100 pages
8) Open edition | Recommended | More than 80 pages | this edition has a special section with content and translations from other editions (size of section - from 30 pages).

All other parameters are engaged with amount of poёnts gathered by editorial staff. If you have no poёnts for illustrations and design your edition will be published on a local site only.

For example:
1) E-zine on a local site without design and art
2) E-zine on a local site with featured design and illustrations
3) Ready to print magazine with full design
4) Printed magazine made by patrons, funds or any other government organizations under control of the senior staff.

Note: All texts from single-language editions must be interlinear translated to English (in a readable and understandable form) and approved by the senior stuff before publishing.
