By in Persona Paper

I have a feeling a mass migration will happen again

I saw a lot of bitter and angry people because of the certain changes from the other site. It reminds me on how bitter Youtube users where when they changed layout. The New Layout of the site that shall not be named for privacy reasons may start another mass migration here in Persona Paper so admins be ready. I know noticed so many angry people who can't accept the new format. At this moment Our site looks more organized. We still have categories something the other sites have. Maybe we should have a format where people can use 2 to 3 pictures on one article. Many people seemed to love that format.

I remember when Mylot announced they will stop paying, Many people considered staying for their attachment to that site but they quit when they have that Twitter like format.

Lesson learned: before we have a Layout change , Consult the members.

Survival of the fittest and that works the world over.

I think it is resistance to change. BTW are we not supposed to put the name of the site because I have put the name of the site here in the article. please guide.

We are actually implementing multiple images soon.
We're making changes, but not that big of a change. I'm feeling it out but am having a bit of trouble getting around. It's not as user friendly as it once was.

I actually like the layout on the other site better now than I used to. It's going to take some adjustments and there will be a learning curve considering the multitude of changes but I think it will turn out well in the long run.

I think the biggest complaint I've heard so far is the difference in allowing multiple photos, that payouts can take up to 30 days (which they already have been anyway), and the reduction in the max. amount of posts you can write. None of those really bother me much, especially since I've had little time available to write lately anyway.

Everytime Facebook changes its layout, everyone screams how much they hate it and are going to leave forever. They don't. They are all still there. And I bet none of them can remember what the first layout they had that they were determined not to lose even looked like. For here and the other site, the ability to earn is going to draw people or lose people.

Changes always bring good new things but also bugs and glitches. We have to wait to see if everything will be fixed for the best. For now the shame made on our old posts is a real mess.

lets wait and see, or maybe some of them might just adapt

Most people are so resistant to change.

I know what you are talking about. I guess when they are not used to having that layout they reconsider staying there. I have only heard about this website in that site and I wanted to try it. So yes, maybe they will probably migrate who knows.

I am sure that new Layout will really rub some people the wrong way. I think the next time Persona Paper will change layout, there should be some consultation from members

Randajad_The_Traveller wrote on July 20, 2014, 4:07 AM

Whenever Youtube changes Layouts, members are complaining for months.

Randajad_The_Traveller wrote on July 20, 2014, 5:22 AM

Yeah, It makes me afraid that some newbie who joined after the change will find my old posts that got ruined by the change and turned them into messy below 400 character posts when they were originally lengthy.

Randajad_The_Traveller wrote on July 20, 2014, 5:31 AM

specially if the change have negative effects which is kind of happening now.

Randajad_The_Traveller wrote on July 20, 2014, 8:04 AM

No we are allowed to, That is just a running gag or a running joke here that never gets old.

Randajad_The_Traveller wrote on July 20, 2014, 8:05 AM

I kind of hope that Persona Paper will grow more.

Randajad_The_Traveller wrote on July 20, 2014, 8:07 AM

I cant wait for that change, story telling is much richer if we have pictures to use it with. Travel articles will do well with it. Tutorials will be easier to explain with the help of pictures.

Randajad_The_Traveller wrote on July 20, 2014, 8:17 AM

usually people are whiny whenever a site changes layout but for sure at certain point they will learn to love it , I think I wont mind changes but I hope the changes we will have wont be anger causing. I think admins should consult members so right decisions will be done during changes.

Randajad_The_Traveller wrote on July 20, 2014, 8:35 AM

Yeah i remember people thought faster payouts will be part of the changes but it doesnt seemed to be. Its patience drying for sure. When I redeemed They said its only 7 days but its been weeks.

MaeLou wrote on July 20, 2014, 11:23 AM

I posted a post the other day called A Glimpse In the Future - it's a tiny layout change but nothing dramatic like Bubblews has done.

gidget wrote on July 20, 2014, 6:56 PM

That's funny! I am not laughing at you just at the thought that they would consult with members.

eddopa wrote on July 21, 2014, 5:17 AM

thats true, the case here is a bit twisted. most ppl are praising the changes

momathome wrote on July 22, 2014, 3:31 PM

Randajad_The_Traveller My last one took about 19 days. Since I work on several sites online that take 4-6 weeks to receive payment, it's something I'm actually fairly used to.

Randajad_The_Traveller wrote on July 25, 2014, 6:35 AM

I guess people can now only receive 2 redemptions per month with that slow payment going on.

momathome wrote on July 25, 2014, 10:44 PM

Randajad_The_Traveller I plan to only request a redeem once per month. I redeemed today for $65 and will wait to redeem again until this one is paid (which was estimated as the 24th of August when I placed the redemption request this morning).
