Exclamation What should we do?! D: WE MUST DO SOMETHING!! But what?!?

Hey guys. I've noticed that there are a few people LEAVING KIDPUB because they're not getting enough reads and/or comments! I don't think it's the right thing to do, but they do. How can we solve this?!

I know I can't do this alone. If you join me, just the two of us can't do it alone. We're going to need a TON of people for this to actually go somewhere! Then, we need things to help us along the way. Little organizations or something. Contests, rewards, whatever you can think of to get people commenting! Of course, we also need to set a good example, so everyone here needs to GET ON THE MAIN PAGE AND GET COMMENTING! People also might need tips to getting comments, or tips for reading things they want to comment on! Comment ideas might also be useful as well.

If you don't know what I mean, here are some examples:

A tip to getting comments:
Come up with a really creative title.

A tip to getting to things you want to comment ON:
Don't just go to the first story you see. Click back a few days on the NPS. Type in a random letter in search and see what comes up. Click on random people who are online and read their stories.

Some comment ideas:
~ Give CC!
~ Tell them positive things you randomly thought when you read their story/poem!
~ Give them suggestions for another chapter/story/poem!

Hope that clears it up!

I need more ideas than just that, so if you have ANYTHING, list it here!

So, here are the steps of the operation:
Step 1 ~ Get the message out to everyone.
Step 2 ~ Create threads or new posts to help this.
Step 3 ~ Give some commenting tips.
Step 4 ~ Comment, comment, comment!
Step 5 ~ Get KP OUT OF A COMMENTING FUNK!

I know this will take a lot of commitment and time, but I'm hoping some of you would like to help! Thanks!

~ Moon

So true!!! I just came back to WB after commenting on a few things...it's really gotten bad. Even the POLL I posted had no votes.

I would do it, but with school and all, I'm really busy and I barely have time for KP. :/

It's awful, but I find myself so...uninterested with half the stories on the main page. -_- Off to try again.

Cloudie: Yeah, that'll be the same for me tomorrow. :\
GabiDi: I think that's what happens to a lot of people, including me, and that's why we're in this commenting slump. It is hard to give out a lot of comments sometimes. Being busy with school, not being interested in things, dealing with the clogs, trying not to sound redundant if you really love 17 books and poems and want to tell the author that the writing is fantastic, and a lot more reasons. It really does get a bit challenging.

Yeah, I'm kind of just sticking to stories by authors I know, stories by authors I've been meaning to check out and stories I've been specifically asked to read.

Read Sagar's book, The Demon Lord. It's really good.
