Please check both platforms later today and let us know if you see any issues, we've updated our feeds for both, and will be doing so for Google Play/Podcasts as well.


Thank you,

Harrison, thanks for the comment. I'm seeing Wall Street Breakfast episodes on Stitcher, is there any chance you could go to the podcast itself in the app and see if the episodes show up, or unsubscribe and then re-subscribe?

I see that it's not updating in iHeart, we'll look into it, thank you for updating.

Hi, thanks for a good question.


We don't currently have a way to require authors to write about anything, is the short answer. Authors choose when to submit articles, so it's up to them to then decide when and where to update their theses. We certainly encourage authors to keep readers informed of their views, even if they are on the Marketplace, as we think that's both the right thing to do and better for their reputation and thus future on the site with potential subscribers. But we don't have a way to impel follow ups or to know in advance whether or not someone will then update a thesis. We select articles based on whether there is current value for readers, as they should stand up on their own.

I hope that makes sense. If you have any ideas of how to do this, or any examples that we can consider, please let me know, I'd love to hear it.

Ganu, thanks for the message. Is this directed at a specific author or just general interest? We have a couple previous articles on IAA available here - https://seekingalpha.com/symbol/IAA?s=iaa

Hi Mountie,

Thanks for the message. Sorry to hear about your disappointment.

Are there any authors you are specifically disappointed by, and how so? When you say this defeats the purpose of Seeking Alpha, what do you mean, and do you have any examples?

It's a tricky balance between finding the right business model, and then between making it work. We went the subscription route because we thought it would support better content, since writers could get compensation without chasing only the most popular stocks, which usually is counter to good investing. And why we are always monitoring the balance between free and paid, what I've noticed so far is that authors tend to write more on Seeking Alpha as they join the Marketplace, as they need to get people to see their work and consider signing up for more.

Looking forward to hearing from you, as we value thoughtful feedback to help us get the balance right.

Best,

Daniel 

Hi Jim,

Thanks for the reply. You can see Stone Fox Capital's full set of articles here - https://seekingalpha.com/author/stone-fox-capital#regular_articles. I haven't read the ACB articles, but we allow authors to write about stocks they have a position in, and expect a full disclosure of any positions they hold in stocks mentioned.

You're welcome to get in touch with our editorial team, as mentioned. You can also file a dispute if you think an article is factually wrong, see how to do that here - https://seekingalpha.com/page/dispute_an_article.

Thanks for the message, Jim. We don't have specific rules about whether an author can contribute positively or negatively, nor whether there's a limit on how much they write. We evaluate each article to see if it adds fresh analysis or perspective to the story and can help inform readers.

If you have any specific articles or authors you're concerned about, you're welcome to contact our editorial team with feedback at editorial-issues@seekingalpha.com.

Best,

Daniel

Dougn, thanks for the message. We don't have an immediate fix, but we're working with Rocket Chat on providing users more control over how they see the threads which are what come up in small type. We'll share your feedback with them as well and I hope we'll have an improvement in the next couple months.


Best,

Daniel

Thanks for the message. If you see factual claims that you think are wrong, we have a dispute process available - email disputes@seekingalpha.com with any claims you think are wrong and evidence to explain why.

For questions like context and appropriate comparisons, comments or, if you'd like to write your thesis on Tesla, a separate article are better venues to address. Check out how to become a contributor here - https://seekingalpha.com/page/become-a-seeking-alpha-contributor

Hi, thanks for the message. I think you're referring to the article on Why Buy FireEye (https://seekingalpha.com/article/4263753-buy-fireeye)? It's available here - https://seekingalpha.com/symbol/BB?analysis=related. Since BB wasn't the focus of the article, it falls in the related analysis section. Please let us know if you have any questions,

Daniel
