Re-scoops by other curators
Hi -- I noticed that Scoop.it made a change awhile ago that when other curators re-scoop an article I've posted on my content, I get credit with a 'via'. If a reader clicks on the article, it used to go to my content and they could plainly see my review and know that I wrote it. Of course, it was then another extra step for the reader to click through to the original article.
However, I write reviews of each article I curate. When another curator re-scoops one of my articles + review, it comes across as if that person wrote the review. Hey, that's not right! I put work in to write these reviews and it is not fair when it looks like another curator wrote the review instead of me.
Does this also mean that I am not getting credit for click-through views from the readers. It would make sense if that was happening too.
Help! Help! What can be done? I know the change was made to make it easier for the reader, but the original curator is getting short shrift. I feel like I'm actually getting ripped off because other curators are note identifying who wrote the original review.
Suggestion: identify that the review is coming from the original curator. Otherwise I'm going to have to add a sentence to each review that I wrote it along with a link to my scoop.it. Yuck. That is really going to annoy my readers.
What say you? Looking forward to hearing your feedback.

We unsderstand your point. Indeed we’ll have to improve again the rescoop button.
Thanks for your feedback.
