JMO.....but.....not everyone has high speed internet. if all you do is post a topic heading and then the content of your first post is a youtube video
or a "listen to this podcast" then you lose.
Excerpt some of the material.....add your ideas on it, use youtube as more supporting information. If it's a video there are also more sources for it,
with pictures and text. Lots of peeps still have slow loading systems and NO ONE is going to tie up their computer for 20 minutes while something you
"think" is SPECIAL is loading.
It gets blurbed right over....
I know lots of members get S7F by posting in certain sections but it's still better to post your topic in the correct forum. You get feedback from
folks who are actually interested in the subject matter that way.
Sure it's EASIER to get seen in Breaking News or Rants or whatever....but it's better to place it in the right place if you want older members to
notice & work on building yourself some "cred". Just yesterday for example someone posted what "looked like" a ok rant then when I clicked on it,
turns out it had to do with Taylor Swift....
put her damn name in the title so I can avoid!!!
NO stars & NO flags for that poster. Plain & simple.......Just. NO.
Plus stars & flags are arbitrary here anyways.....this isn't like other places on the interwebs.....people use them according to their own tastes in
material. It's a big world and it really shouldn't matter what anyone thinks if YOU are passionate about your material/topic. One thing that gets
noticed are hit & run threads.....OP posts it & never comes back. If you don't care why should we? Once you have that rep, it doesn't go away. This
site is interactive......the best threads are when the OP is involved/invested.
Keep trying.....it gets easier.....LOL
