Motorkultur.com shares the success
Every contributor remains "the originator" of his contibution (article, photo, video), with all rights and obligations. He gets his revenue-share as long as his work is presented by Motorkultur.com, on the contrary he alone is reponsible for the statements he has published.
A contribution is editoral content that can be presented as a PI (page impression) and that can be assigned to the author, such as: articles, photos, dates, comments. Not affected are forum-pages, article-collections, community-pages. These are indirectly counted.
All contributions are classified and are given an internal value (scoring system), even actions on contributions are scoring (comments, favorites).
See: Internal value of contributions.
The investment model is based on revenue generated from advertising, sponsorship and donations up to the planned settlement date. The scoring system defines the share for each author. The point itself as no defined value.
In the community section every author gets an overview over his collected points as well as some statistics.
