Like anything else, Ninja Plans has cyclical periods of high and low traffic. When we think of the life cycle of many educators, there are predictable patterns of 'business,' whether that be as a result of report cards, parent-student-teacher conferences, the start of a school year or new term, summer holidays and other break periods, etc.
To help you better prepare for these busy periods on our site, we are providing this historical user activity on our site for your reference.
Teachers use Ninja Plans to help them reduce their workload, improve their practice, and to generate ideas for the classroom that may otherwise have been missed. If you're looking to have the most popular resources on the site, timing is everything.
It is important to be topical and to anticipate the next popular event or period—and to upload higher quality resources that are purpose-built for these events.

The only thing you need to do is have an active subscription for an account, making sure that the email address used is the one that you can receive payout information to.
What you share with others is up to you. We do not report to employers that you are contributing resources (nor anything else for that matter). Other than a username, we do not broadcast any other information (such as job title or location) with others unless you consent to it.

For example, 5% of the downloads = 5% of the payout.
Please see the Earnings Example chart near the top of this page for an illustrative example.
We will provide all users with tallies for each month so that you can see just how your contributions stack up against the site’s overall totals.
Nope. Our system will only count 1 download of a resource per user.
So, if 3 different users download your resource in a month, it won’t matter how many times they click to download it—it will only count as 3 downloads.
