Follow All New Members
Joined this community in Feb 2015. As with most sites, after settling in (which took about 3 months), immediately developed my quirks (or “self-enforce rules”).
In addition to giving my fellow members a “ Thumbs Up ” ( √ ) by clicking the “Like” button because they wrote a catchy title that got me to click the link to their post, I also follow ALL new members.
Why? Three reasons.
(1) There was something about this site that attracted them to sign up. They took the time to write an Intro post and get it approved. The least I can do is let them know they registered on my FOPP Richter scale. Plus I never got into the habit of leaving comments on the member profiles .
(2) Once the Follow button is clicked, the new posts show up in my feed stream and it is so much easier than hunting down posts. Just sign in to my account and click where it says “Recent Activity” and scan the listing. Everybody's there!
(3) OK. This is the real reason. I can't stand RED X marks! When I view the Member Directory Listing and see the red X ... it has got to go!
Must see green ( √ ) or blue ( √ ) checkmarks. I'm weird like that! :)
