I like most changes implemented since I joined 3 years ago but this one is very detrimental to poets and photographers. I still love Medium but my plan for it to supplement my retirement income (when and if I retire) was killed by what I call the “lingering income” of the new payment calculations. In fact, the estimated downward turn of my Medium income will keep me working longer than I hoped. With the trajectory of my old earnings, I figured retirement would be in 2 years, now it’s more like 5+ years when I’m in my 70s.
