The Hammill Post operates primarily as an advertising and revenue-based enterprise. The Hammill Post currently is “in Beta”. This means certain elements of our online publication will be subject to significant revision following review by an assembly of business advisers we retain to guide our business plan development and full feature start-up. At this time we expect the Beta period to extend through calendar year 2014.
During our Beta period, contributions of material, time and effort are voluntary, but may be eligible for elective compensation based on periodic apportionment of advertising revenue earned during start-up. Elective compensation for contributions of material during our Beta period will be based on apportionment of advertising revenue during such period. We expect our first distribution of shared revenue to regular, weekly, contributing writers in calendar year 2014 to take place between May and June 2015.
