What Do The numbers beside the Categories Mean?
Looking at Categories
I have been looking at the categories following Luisga814 's post on the categories where he writes the most , including the "books" category where he is ranked 5th. In all of the categories, the names have a number beside them and I was wondering what this number stood for.
What Might They Mean?
Let's take the category of "Animals". All 10 of the top spots are filled and person number 9 is Lillybell , who has the number 67 beside her name. I chose lillybell because this is a person I have not previously commented on, as far as I know. I went to her profile and saw that she had 403 coins and had written 18 articles. None of those numbers seems to be related to the number beside her name in the animals category. So I went to her last post, viewed it and commented. When I came back to the animals category page and refreshed it, the number had not changed, so it does not appear to be anything to do with general views of an article but the article I read was not in the "animals" category, so I tried that next and read about Lilly the dog going to the vet . When I came back to the "Animals" category, the number had changed to 69, so it appears to be coins earned from views of articles in that category.
Coins from Views
So the number appears to be coins earned from article views. I wonder if that changes after you cash out? I have just cashed out, so I will check the categories and see if my numbers appear to be low. The first category where I appear in the top 10 is that of "business", where my number is "59". The next place I appear is in the health and fitness category with 91, then humor with 147 and parenting with 19.
Not in the Top 10
It looks as if I am not in the top 10 for many categories. so I can't tell whether these numbers stay the same before and after cashing out. Some categories have lots of writers and you need high numbers to be in the top 10, for other categories, you may need only to make a post or two to appear in the top 10.
Along The Way
Along the Way, I noted that the top rated person in the category "Spirituality" was &VisionofHope with 257 but I haven't seen him posting recently, so I stopped to comment on his last post, which was NOT in the spirituality category but a tutorial on language.
Categories are Interesting
I remember bestwriter wrote one time about going through all the categories and posting something in each one. There was also a challenge for writing something in each category but I don't remember who started that one.
Which is YOUR best category on Personapaper?
Where do you write most?, Where do you wish you wrote the most? Are there any categories you are going to try now? Have you tried the "post an article in every category" challenge?
