New to the Game: Sleuth Challenge Week I

Fellow Persona Paper community member CoralLevang issued a challenge -- the Sleuth Challenge -- for anyone interested in looking back through the archives of other members here to discover/revisit previous posts. If you're interested in learning more about the challenge, please visit the link above where it is explained in detail.

I've chosen to visit four members here -- one who was known to me and three with whom I had not been familiar: Akshar , sharcat , nomore and Communicator .

Without divulging who wrote what (a little mystery, you know), here are the pages I've chosen to read and share:

1. This member provided some practical tips on what should be done if you or someone you know finds him/her self homeless.

2. When this member wrote her introduction , she packed it full of background information. When you read it, you may be inspired by her ability to overcome life's obstacles.

3. This member wrote of the anniversary of her immediate family moving to the US from India. It's almost time for another anniversary!

4. Learn how this member dealt with a manipulative family member . Perhaps you'll encourage to post an update, so we know how she is doing now.

I'm happy to report I found this an enjoyable challenge. It's amazing what you can learn about a person just by going back a few pages in their archives. I hope you'll consider undertaking this challenge yourself. Just don't forget to tag it: Sleuth.

Happy exploring!

Too complicated for me. I don't mind a simple challenge. And I like the idea of sleuthing. Maybe a scavenger hunt...

Yes, let's see who and what else we can find, eh?

I understand, Vince. Not every challenge appeals to me, either -- and some of the ones that do, I never get around to participating in. A scavenger hunt you say? Why not develop the idea and put it out there for us?

It is a clever idea and a practical one too. Those older posts for most of us simply sit in the archives gathering dust, so to speak. I'll admit it is time-consuming to participate in this challenge, but if you're interested in doing so but crunched for time, you could do even just one person each week. Nope, it's not a lot, but it's something. : )

Hm...interesting. ;p I don't know if I would have the time for this, as things are kind of crazy lately, but it does sound intriguing !

Maybe just put the idea on a list somewhere for when you have more time available, or just do one or two people instead of more. It's really about discovering members here we might not already know, scanning through their archives -- giving an older post or two some attention, and overall just increasing community interaction.
