When I visit Sphinn, I often scan the What’s New section as well as the What’s Hot section. There’s a lot of stuff in both of them and all I have to go on is the Title and the Description the Sphinner decides to post.

I personally know that certain author’s articles will be better than other author’s articles and would truly appreciate it if you would please mention who the author is when you Sphinn someone else’s article.

You could actually make or break the number of Sphinn’s someone else’s article gets due to this (especially if you as the submitter are not a recognized Sphinner). Once an article is Sphunn and it doesn’t mention the original author’s name, it appears that it can’t really be easily added in later so that people can see it.

This comes up simply because I was going to Sphinn a great article I saw on Search Engine Guide by Diane "Torka" Aull just a bit ago. I hadn’t noticed it previously posted, but when I went to submit it, Sphinn told me it already was posted. I was surprised when I saw that the original didn’t mention who the author was, as I know I would have read it had I known it was one of Diane’s.

Just a little rant for those of you submitting articles!
