Would we give credits for only quality submissions?
How about that?

  Another membership idea might be to make everyone take credits but only for 
  some period of time after their initial membership.  For instance, make 
  everybody who is elligible for bookshare books pay for set up and for the 
  first year.  If they accrue credit during that first year, the credit will 
  be applied to their next year's membership or returned to them at the end 
  of the first year if they do not choose to renew.  This would get rid of 
  people who join the volunteer list, submit stuff of such poor quality that 
  it gets rejected and just stay on and on paying nothing and contributing 
  little.  I know this sounds harsh but if bookshare is facing a monetary 
  issue we need to think about ways of solving for it.

  If you feel really sorry for a blind person you know who cannot afford a 
  first year membership, let's have a link so you can give someone a gift of 
  a membership right on bookshare.
