It went to 10k/month a few months back.  It's worth noting you can alternately have 100k over the last 12 months, which works out to be a little less per month.  You could accomplish the former by answering a question every three days or so.

It is more rigorous, and I do expect they'll lose some "experts" because of it, but that's probably part of their plan.

I personally didn't know it went to 10k/mo.  I always thought getting free membership for answering 1 1/2 questions per month was a bit low.

If all you are looking for is a free membership for little to no work, then perhaps you are in the wrong place.  

I've always felt one gets out of this site what they are willing to put into it.

With 700 contributions, a mere pittance in comparison to some, I hardly consider myself along for a free ride. tks

And I agree answering 1+ Q's a month is low but thats what it was. They wont lose me as an expert in helping others but without the ability to ask a Q? when needed will have me simply looking elsewhere for answers as EE is just one avenue in a global world.

It is what it is.
