Love ItLove It

Let's say a huge thank you to the Random Commenter!!!!!

My grandfather always said, tell it like it is. Be open, be fair but be honest. I know that many of you have gotten private messages here on this site that have upset you. Many of you have sent me the message or reached out that Most of the news you got was upsetting. I’ve gotten messages from people that were offended by the comments and the PMs of other authors. I always tell them to contact the admin team. Why do I do that? Because one time, I took the complaints of four authors to another author, and that person blew up. They ended up calling me names, and based on that; I haven’t interacted with them until they communicated with me (downvoted a post and commented on another post).

Most of you are now saying so? Recently an author on this site has been doing a random comment contest. This user reads, comments, and leaves random comments. They also share with social media the posts they read. They are going back and reading older posts and sharing those. The casual comment challenge being done by the author is helping the site. Another author on this site sent them a pm saying that the random comments were terrible. The second author told the first that the random comments were limit the author’s ability to earn on this site. The author that sent that message has done nothing to benefit anybody but themselves. They are the first to let everyone know that they earned money on this site. But they don’t share on social media, and if you are lucky, they respond to comments on rare occasions.

First of all – there is some dishonest communication going on.

  1. Random comments today don’t impact your ability to earn. I have not seen a post that reached the daily maximum for comments in more than a month.
  2. If you can’t say something in the open, don’t send a private message. That is a horrible way to treat someone.

The other thing my grandfather taught me was to stand up for your friends. I have lived that from the moment I was told. I am honored to call the Radeon Commenter, my friend. I see the impact of the random comments on the site, and it is beautiful. So if you get a random comment, give that commenter a huge thank you!

If someone sends you a PM that is offensive or hurts your feelings, send it to the admin team. There is no queen of this site. We are all peers!

  2. I have received some random quotes but I don’t know what I’m supposed to do about it, or about the rules of the game, sorry. I have never understood for instance why I have 12 thousand followers on Pinterest? What do they do? I write articles and advertise them on Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and tumbler. They all have certain games going on???!!! I don’t play them either. So, sorry if I’m offending “Gamers” its nothing personal, I just don’t get it, that’s all.

    • The rules were shared a bit ago. But the contest isn’t the thing here. The reality is that people are trying really hard in many ways to make the site better.

      So the reality of the random comments – if it asks for a PM, send a pm denoting you found it.
      If it doesn’t reply and mention the random comment.

      It is a fun way to help the community grow!

          • Doc, tell me, directly, I really can take it, I have never partaken in the various games, guess this, could such and such be so and so? and whatever else the guessing games are about. since 2009 these quizzes have popped up periodically and I don’t do them. If you mean I’m the one negative writer here because I don’t do quizzes, never have, never will. So, pal, ust say it! I have made no secret about how I feel about them.
            “Interestingly the three nos show a clear bias against the random comment contest. But the majority of people find it to be fun.

            so i guess the one person has an issue.

            They also should check themselves, i watch the rate of views very carefully on the site. I would say that views were increasing because of that contest if they weren’t! Never argue facts with suppositions.”

        • i don’t think you are a negative writer! I do not do challenges normally, i have stayed away from them other than the 365-day photo challenge. I am doing them now just to be entertaining.

          i suspect the 3 nos show a clear bias against the person that started the random comment challenge. In part because the person that has the bias, can’t really do anything to help others on this site.

  3. Fortunately, I have not yet received a message with any insulting statements. The idea with random comments is great. Thanks to the author of this idea. I was happy to read the wonderful quotes.

  4. Good for you! Those who have nothing positive to say should say nothing. especially in private messages. I will admit I have been negative here many times about lack of communication. But never about another member.

    Kuddos to our friend who is at least trying to help keep the site going.
