Is it time to invite all our friends?
I have two questions for you. How can we make this community more genuine and MEANINGFUL than some of the others?
Butterose What would make it more genuine and meaningful to you? I ask because it is genuine and meaningful to me since it appears not to be all about collecting large numbers in place of real conversation.
LyndaLehmann Real dialogue would make it meaningful. I'm just so tired of all the popularity contests and friend and follower collecting that's going on...
I would like to get to know like-minded people. By that I don't mean that they think like me, but that they DO think and are open to exchange of ideas--and value mutual support and personal and intellectual growth.
nothingprofound Being open and responsive. Showing a genuine interest in each other's ideas and work.
LyndaLehmann Sounds good to me!
AngieAlaniz Good one NP, I'm with you!
Luchi5 I think it's time to invite all our friends, that will make this place more fun and more geniune. *Oh! this repost thingy is cool*
LyndaLehmann I guess I'll go ahead and invite my artist friends from other sites, though I have to do it next week as I'm busy with printing, matting and framing this week.
timethief @LyndaLehman I think we need some way to be able to know a new person has joined like a member's register or something. So far the friends I gave my URL to have found me but as my posts don't hit the front page I wonder how new people will find me.
LyndaLehmann What about if new people are shown on a "Home Page"? Members could go there frequently or even every day, to see who's joined...
Theresa111 Agreed that we need to have a list of sorts so we may meet others and maybe automatic following so we don't miss the opportunity for any good topic of conversation. The reason I follow everyone I have followed to date, is that I never know who will say something I want to hear. Everyone is interesting.
GreenLady7 Yes, a listing would be good. I'm always on the lookout for new people I can overwhelm with the awesomeness of my words! Bwahahahaha! Today FriedEggs, tomorrow the World!
LyndaLehmann if you like awesome words, you should hear me when i cuss! ;)
