You know I had this as a differnt title! I saw it going slowly, so I went back and changed it to this, KNOWING it would catch people's attention!
It's not just replying to new people, but even some of the older members are experiencing this too. All members can experience their poems sinking with 1, 2 or no replies.
How about when you start, start on the last PAGE? Take a look in Open #9 on the back pages, and tell me how many went to the back with zero replies. Anyone care to take me up on that challenge??
Actually someones first post gets recognized.
This morning, I went to the back page #8 here, and moved 3 poems up that had NO replies at all. I saw more with 1 reply, maybe 2 replies.
I actually posted (a poor attempt at that), the other day, and you know what? It sunk without so much as an acknowledgement. And I've been here OVER a YEAR!
Elizabeth did find it and reply, she still remains the ONLY one. It wasn't so much the poem (which sucked), but what I was trying to do by posting it.
We don't need to see the flashing folder Suthern, as much as seeing that BIG PLUMP ZERO, and take a moment to read and reply.
I understand we all have our favorites here, I do also. But instead of FIRST reading theirs, why can't you open up one with less replies first? Actually there are some really GOOD poems going by unnoticed!
Yes, it's fast paced, and YES, we can find all the excuses in the world why we DON'T...
You still have to remember how it would feel if it were you!
Suthern I don't mind your long winded reply at all, you made a very good point!
The newer people aren't going to get as much gratification as the older members. You do need to get out there and reply, and make a name for yourself!
Karen I really didn't know I helped you like that, and you brought to me a smile tonight!
Thanks sweetie! and BIG HUGS!
To all the rest I didn't mention here, thank you for taking the time to read it and respond, and thank you for trying to make it better for others.
We are know as PASSIONATE POETS for a reason! Right?
