This is a user content based website..So some things to think about...
There has been a lot of talk the last couple of days about negativity and positivity regarding PP. I have weighed in on it a couple times, as well as bit my tongue about some things. There are some times where you just have to pick your fight, even when you weren't trying to start a fight in the first place. There are some people who will always be looking for a fight, or will always be wanting the last word. Sometimes the best thing to do is walk away.
But let's face it. This is one true thing that we can, and shoul all agree on. PPis a content based website, that is made up of user content. That's us. Every time we post an article we are adding a little more content to this little corner of the internet world. If we want the website to suceed, and I hope that all of us do. That's why we're here right? I know we are here to write, but in order for us to do well, the website needs to do well- and really they go hand in hand. You can't have one with out the other.
A lot of keeping a website alive, and growing is adding more users to help create more content to help the website grow bigger and reach more people. So when a newbie stumbles acorss our website and sees all the negative posts, complaing about how the owners aren't around as much, or this or that. Do you think that they are going to want to stick around and join us? No, of course not. They won't have any faith in the website, and they will see the negative instead of looking deeper to see all the good stuff that is here.
See, negativity not only affects us, but it affects our growth. If we want to help grow the website we need to try to be positive and show all the great stuff that PP has to offer, instead of focusing on the negative.
I know not everythings perfect, but that's just it. Accept that not everything is going to be perfect. It's not the end of the world. Be happy about being here, show what a great site it is, and people will see that when they visit, instead of negative- and that will encourage them to join- thus helping the website thrive.
Just some thoughts.
