Picking Up on Some Really Good Vibes

There is a really nice vibe at this website.

Sure coins are earned for and an outsider might be tempted to say – "Y'all get paid to blab!” But only 30 characters are needed to make a “qualifying comment”. So if that were the case, that we're just "blabbing", all a community member would need to type up is: “Every good boy does fine. Cha cha!” Then move on to another post and type up: “Bruce Lee eats iguana with gravy.”

You know what I mean??

But many who leave their paw prints behind go way beyond 30 characters. They are actually engaging, and expecting reciprocation, a response back. They talk with the writer and they talk with others who are commenting.

People want to converse with each other.

People want to learn from each other.

People want to express and get for more serious thinking on the matter.

People are passionate about sharing their interests – , , , etc.

There is lively going on here! The atmosphere is comfortable and non-intimidating. Critical and creative is happening! It's marvelous!

I'm not talking to myself, which is what happens at most of my .

I like it! You folks deserve a hug!

Awww, thanks fr the hug! I know the reason I stayed is for the wonderful writing community.

Well, one good thing about here too, is that you can't really "blab" your way through a comment. If it doesn't apply to the article, it's considered spam, and you get your account flagged in the process. Too much of it, and your account is gone. It's nice to see the members here actually conversing though, and not just attempting to see if they can get away with any 30 characters.

Bruce Lee ate iguana with gravy? Wow, I thought he was a vegetarian. emoticon :grin:

I think the thing that makes people so interested and engaging here is that when I click on an article here I *know* it's going to be coherent and original (a few plagiarizers slipped in, but they didn't stay for long!), even if I don't necessarily agree with the opinion expressed. At least I know that opinion is expressed well!

AliCanary , MaeLou , FourWalls , wolfgirl569 – Every word you all wrote is true, true, true. I am really hoping this community grows. It's a great place to just hang out!

I didn’t know that comments earn for us. I also did not know that 30 characters is the minimum.

Comments earn only for those who make them, not the for the author of the post commented on. You can make posts of less than 30 characters, but you won't get paid for them. I think you only get paid for your first comment on a post, and the author's replies to comments aren't paid.

You've hit the nail on the head. Most of us stay because this is a social site. Most of us also read the comments others have made because we know certain people are bound to give us a laugh, moral support, or share something we need to know. So glad you're enjoying our little community.

Yes. BarbRad - Thank you for the clarification. Didn't mean to mislead anyone. Figured they could check the Rules for additional details.

It is especially nice to receive genuine honest remarks and criticism, stated in such a way you feel very appreciative as opposed to being offended. You grow, you learn and hopefully you improve. :)
