As my mom used to say “the natives are getting restless”. The general consensus seems to be that the people who are writing here appreciate all that you do and still have have some suggestions and want to know that they have been heard. (At least that is my general impression.) I believe most are anxious to know if you realize the general feeling is that writers are not being heard and responded to. (I have been very successful when asking for help. I hope that continues.)
Here are some things that “I” believe might be helpful. I am speaking for only me. We seem to enjoy updates. We understand the updates can’t be in a dollar and cents amount on this site, the value of a viril changes. Perhaps in that section we could see the number of virils go up day after day. At least we would know we are moving in the right direction. (Yes, I am aware our totals are listed in a different area, but apparently we want more, please).
Many are concerned because they are not verified writers. I have an idea (and I speak for no one else). Why don’t we make everyone a verified writer and if they get reported for issues then they may lose the privilege for two weeks with a clear suggestion of what they need to change and once again be able to post at will. I wouldn’t think that would require much more work on your end.
Perhaps once a week staff could make a post about what things are working and what are not.
We have a fairly strong group of creators here. My family would be so sad if Carol DM and others stopped posting their pictures. My husband is thrilled to hear where I wandered with Doc and he gets on just to see what is there. Please, help us help you so we call all keep being successful here.
