Unfortunately it isn’t working for me at all. I signed up, but, am unable to lock anything I write. I emailed the Medium help desk, but, all I got was a cryptic response saying I couldn’t ‘add locked stories to publications which are not part of the partnership program’, but, I never submitted the story to any publication. I find it baffling and discouraging.
