I’ve heard some people speculate that they will do it more in the future. They’ve also made note that it could be because of the breaking down of their expensive publications where they would pay writers a high rate per word.

I’m definitely interested to see if they do it again and are moving in rounds with writers because it’s easier to send out something like this to a small batch and it’ll drive more traffic and activity on the site.
