It was an obervation not a judgement either way. The top stories on any publication get the most views, reads, and therefore revenue to the author. So, intentionally or unintentionally, Dr Yildiz has pulled off a marketing masterstroke - new writers flock to the Illumination because they get a chance (good) and everyone that visits the page sees a load of Dr Yildiz's articles (good for Dr Yildiz's stats and revenue). I was, personally suprised that a publication which seems to have so many writers enthuse about it (because of it gives a chance to new writers) is actually dominated, in terms of its prime slots, by one author (who owns the publication). I was expecting to look at the homepage (the publication's shop window) and see new writers given a platform, but you have to scroll a long way down before you get to new writers.
