I personally know that certain authors articles will be better than other authors articles and would truly appreciate it if you would please mention who the author is when you Sphinn someone elses article.
You could actually make or break the number of Sphinns someone elses article gets due to this (especially if you as the submitter are not a recognized Sphinner). Once an article is Sphunn and it doesnt mention the original authors name, it appears that it cant 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 hadnt 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 didnt mention who the author was, as I know I would have read it had I known it was one of Dianes.
Just a little rant for those of you submitting articles!
