The TwinCity Dentist, your photo shows you are a subscribed member so assume it is matter of setting up your account with stripe. The point you quoted from my article is related to payment, not curation. As I pointed out curation is also affected by this change. There are no more topic indications on our profiles. We won’t know which topics our stories are distributed to. The “hang tight” notice is also removed so we won’t know whether our story is nominated for curation.
