There is going to be a change in policy to see if we can get managers to manage ALL their rings more "promptly". This mainly affects managers that manage many Rings. We're finding that sending out warnings and otherwise trying cajole managers into keeping Rings current - and ALIVE - is only partially succeeding. We'll be adding notation to members My Rings page indicating which Rings are in need of management. As a further cue the sponsor link will appear on all Rings a member manages if any of their Rings is found wanting.
Frankly we'd like to set as policy an upper limit of Rings any "person" can manage. A number small, like 20-30. It is not possible to properly manage more Rings than that - even if it is done as a job. That is our belief. With more Rings than this management becomes a passive activity rather than an active one. New members are not sought out and invited, sites not reviewed for topical content after they're approved, often not reviewed well before approval. They managed like the Ring is being babysat.
We want to know what more we can do to help managers "cultivate" the (few) Rings they manage. Instead we're spending development time and money dealing with problems resulting from having too many Rings managed by "ring managers" not individuals not fully committed to the topic of the Rings. Since we're spending the time and money we need to find a way to recoup some of it.
