    Hi,

    i was paying some authors 0.05 per word at first, but now i lowered it to 0.03. The problem is once i switched to 0.03, all the old posts updated to this price as well so the stats became incorrect.

    Is there a way to define which posts were paid at 0.05 rate and which at 0.03? If it helps, all the posts published in 2012. were 0.05 and those in 2013. are 0.03.

    Thank you

    Changing options will always result in a conseguential stats change. It was designed this way to get the beet performance. If it was not this way, every time you wanted to edit options reflecting those changes on stats, the plugin would have to go through the whole database, probably resulting in a timeout on large ones.

    A possible solution would be to give a payment bonus to each post of 2012 proportional to the number of words. That bonus would thus be added to the default payment of 0.02 by the plugin.

    Hope this helps.
