  7. 7. What about my page commitment? <ul><li>Collaborative projects can make it hard to count how many pages are “yours”, but EOL wants you to reach out to the rest of the world, so we’ll find a way to give you credit for your efforts. Eg.: if you personally mentor a student contributing to your LifeDesk, all of their content counts toward your commitment. </li></ul><ul><li>Have a great community-building idea but not sure whether the resulting content will count? Ask us! </li></ul>
