I'm Here , But Not Really

I am a new member of Persona Paper and I have been learning the ropes on my first day.

Did I miss something? Where are my cheering crowds and uproarious fanfare? My post have flopped and my interactions have no reactions. I can hear a pin drop fall.

Do you know any tips for new members?

Personally, I have tried all the techniques I have used on Bubblews like reading and commenting on large amounts of posts and trying to interact with a wide group of people. Is there anything that I am missing?

I'm going to keep moving forward and hopefully I will get to know everyone a little better. Until I get a few people who will read my posts, I don't want to post anything too precious.

This is a much smaller venue so you have to scale back your expectations. I could send you a half-eaten cookie if you want.

Thank you. It is good to see we are not alone.

Well if you look at the active members list we are just around 700+ here. Try following as much people as you can. Hopefully thing will pick up pace.

It seems like everyone is connected to each other. Tight knit!

Hi, welcome. I am new here myself and I am sure when more members join your Bubblews techniques will work here too:))

Things move a lot slower on here than they do on Bubblews, I don't know if it is because Persona Paper has fewer members or if the members just are not as active, but my posts don't do anywhere near as well on here as they do on Bubblews either. I've adjusted to this by posting different content on here than I would on Bubblews. I just don't do the more "elaborate or focal" posts on here that I would do on Bubblews. I also do a lot more polls on here than posts for that very reason.

Probably it's because there aren't as many members here yet as bubblews. You are not doing bad, you are actually doing fine. I've been here for a week only but I'm not pushing myself too hard. Bubblews system is totally different from persona paper.

Cool. I will have to try some polls.

Hi, it is good to meet you and I will be reading your posts and answering them.

As everyone else has said, it's a smaller group of people. Like 750 maybe. So, there is never a big crowd here. I spend less time here than elsewhere as the payment is so low as well. But I am trying to be here regularly. Persona Paper has nowhere to go but up. :D

I am newbie as well. Just submitted my very first article. Initially, we would not feel nor see our progress just yet but I am keeping a positive outlook. ;)

Welcome to Persona Paper. I did miss your introduction post and have finally found you. Obviously this site is much smaller than "the other", and is still at its beginnings. I do hope you stick with it.

I'm new too! So, welcome to the PP community rustedmemory ... give it time. You only stand to gain...

There are days here, especially on the weekend, when it is pretty quiet. Through the week is usually better.

I just joined and can't post yet so I'm reading a lot tonight, especially the tutorials. Starts are always slow at first.
