I've been through a number of writing platform changes in the last eight years. I want to be positive about this one, and I appreciate HP's candor and explanations on what is expected for authors -- I hope it turns out to be true. We all work hard, here. It's business, and companies have a history of saying nothing will change but for the better, only to find out that, indeed changes do occur (and often for the worse). So, congrats HP -- thank you for looking out for us. Time will tell if Maven has the same respect for its contributors as Paul and Robin do. I am staying positive on this one.

Analytics tells me that I suddenly started getting traffic from something called the Maven Coalition. Since I don't have a website on Maven, are my hubs being advertised there? How can I figure out where specifically on Maven this traffic is coming from?
