Certification by Other Authors



Knol's main aim is to create authoritative articles about specific topics.

But the platform provides an opportunity for experimentation by authors to provide various formats. But unless the main objective is fulfilled to a large extent, Knol may not succeed in the first place to provide opportunity for other forms of expression by us (author community).

Therefore make an attempt to certify knols by any other author as an authoritative knol. If we can certify a great number of knols as authoritative articles we can make a noise about it in various forms of media. If we can't then we have to change our approach to creating knols. Start.

I notice that you have been trying to encourage the fellow knol-writers to become quality conscious. While you might not see the results immediately, your efforts will surely have long-range results.

Actually I don't think this is a very good idea.
The best way to make a knol a certified authoritative information source on a specific topic is by rating it, or linking to it in other knols also related to this particular topic.

This here looks more like an attempt at creating a link-net, and looks (to me) like "just another form of spam", and I think Knol will have to deal with plenty of these.

Sorry if this sounds harsh.

Dear Dr. Johnson Philip

Thank you for the optimistic comment.
We all have to put in our bit for the success of the platform.
