What Kind of Comments Pay on Persona Paper? It's Now Better to Give Than Receive

If you're a good writer in terms of writing good posts and great comments then you're an invaluable asset to Persona Paper and we're glad to have you be part of the community.

Now Persona Paper is rewarding those writers who take time out of their day to not only visit, view and like/encourage their fellow writers but now they're putting a financial bounty on it.

There are two ways to now make money on Persona Paper. If you're a writer, you can post and get paid for views. If you're more of a reader, you can read someone else's post and leave a comment that's at least 30 characters.

You now get paid when you LEAVE a comment.

Let me repeat that another way. You no longer get paid when people leave comments on your post. You do get paid when you leave comments on other people's posts.

Photo: This is the start of a scarf my Aunt's friend is making for my Aunt. My Auntie bought the wool but she's not much of a knitter. Her friend Carol, loves to knit so she's knitting Auntie a scarf. Friends help friends.

Persona Paper No Longer Pays for Likes & Comments You Receive

When I first read of this change I was actually quite pleased with it. On a similar site I do take the time to read every post I visit, and 99% of the time I leave a comment about it, which I don't think is too difficult to do when one DOES read a post. I like this change, and for someone like me who likes to take the time to actually converse a bit with people I am interacting with, it's definitely a plus.

It will be interesting to see what impact it has on the site's activity.

I suppose the answer to your question is constructive comments that will lead others to make further comments and start a conversation. They might therefore be somewhat contentious or controversial remarks that other people would feel compelled to respond to. I'm not saying that we want to encourage nastiness or flaming, but there is nothing wrong with a lively exchange of views between people who don't see things in quite the same way!

Nice colors on the scarf. I can imagine it will go with a lot of outfits.

This new system has me giddy like a schoolgirl. On other sites, the social marxists would "punish" someone like me for daring to say the things which challenged them and ripped them out of their comfort zones. Now, they can both benefit from "defending their whatever" AND from having a brush with me. :)

Yup. This is a good thing. Haha.

Thanks for making that clear for us! Sometimes I have a hard time understanding what is going on!

I use to love to knit and crochet. I still do when I have time which is rare. I like to make thread crochet doilies. It's very relaxing to crochet!

I think I may have missed an announcement. I've been busy copying and pasting from YCN into Word, and deleting what I can, though it appears ... well, let's just say that I am kicking myself for not writing in Word. ;) And I have the overwhelming, sinking feeling that I am not going to have fun doing the same thing at the Bubbs. *laughs* I really should have known better.

Anyway...thank you for the update here. It appears that there are some positive changes. I look forward to getting done with this "project" so I can start being more active doing what I love to do.

Very interesting. (These days it seems as if I always log on to these sites with an idea of some things I want to write, then read through all the e-friends' posts and end up posting far more comments than Bubblews page shows the actual statistics. But what a pity not to get paid for "liking" friends' posts! I'm sure lots of people would rather be "liked" than get some sort of off-the-wall comment!

I like the "community scarf"! Yep, the commenting thing works for me, as I find sometimes it's easier to be inspired to build on someone else's post than to write my own!

Have you noticed that you are getting more comments since the change, Adrienne? I got a few extra on one of my more recent posts, but it's still hard to tell. I think you've worded it so well here, though: people who are able to both write posts and interact with their fellow writers are invaluable to our community :)

I really like the idea of earning when commenting it makes it worth while to comment. If I have something useful to day at least I know I am earning too. I think it will also promote people to leave something useful rather than just a "nice post" which as we all know is just a waist of every ones time. Has this been set into action already or is this a upcoming thing?

LadyDuck wrote on July 15, 2014, 2:57 AM

I always like to interact with people. I read the posts, I leave my comments and I appreciate people who take the time to leave comments on my posts. I like the change.

wow I just joined persona paper today and I still can't believe this is how it works!I'm amazed so amazed

This may seem a negative change at first for those who really like to write and get comments on their stuff, but I think it's a wonderful change overall. It's going to definitely encourage people to actually leave comments on other people's stuff and perhaps make it so that people aren't so selfish when it comes to earning. I don't have the writing portion of my account active yet as I am waiting on it to go through, so until then I will leave comments and connect with people. So for me, I still think that having this option available to me is wonderful!

This will also be an interesting experiment. I sure hope it succeeds because it's such a innovative approach.

Gina145 wrote on July 17, 2014, 6:04 AM

I like the change, but I'm a bit concerned about it encouraged people to leave spammy comments. I hope PersonaPaper have come up with a way to deal with that.

Love this update by PersonaPaper. I'm one of those users who sometimes spend my entire online time in the site reading other people's post and commenting accordingly. I'm glad that PersonaPaper has given a nod to those who comment and not just post articles.

I also ADORE this new system to reward both writers & readers/commentors' because I have really always had a big mouth and I have always been as interested in reading/commenting on articles (I have comments across Internetland going back to 1998, ha!) - and now to get paid for doing that? It encourages conversations about the topic being written about - and it seems to be working. Keep going with the brilliance, elitecodex I would also 'like' (pun intended) so see the addition at the bottom of articles of the 'Like' button (I've seen others suggest it in here) because I keep forgetting to click on it - I keep having to go back. And now that it doesn't matter whether we like things or not - I think articles are not getting as many likes as they would, otherwise. And some of them really deserve it. :)

I am new here today and I hadn't noticed the mention of paying for comments made rather than received. Sounds like a great idea as it will hopefully stop all the "nice post" comments.
