Witty is kinda dead.
here's what we should do.
1. INVITE YOUR FRIENDS
It's the best way to get more active users. You
don't have to tell them your account, but just show
them the website! As many people as possible; if you think
they'll be interested, get them to join. People wonder
why the 'old witty' used to be so active. It's
because a lot of users would constantly be inviting new
people to join, and recycling the community. It works, so
2. WRITE MORE QUOTES
Traffic is so sloooooow for two reason; there aren't a
lot of uers, and therefore there aren't a lot of
quotes. So write more quotes! Make the 'New' page
active again. I'm not saying you should make a quote of
every mundane thought that goes through your mind (not that
there's anything wrong with that) but seriously, how
can you complain about inactivity if you only write two
quotes a week? Look at all your absolute favourite usres,
or the ones with the most followers; more often than not,
they'll be active themselves, and write a lot of
quotes. That's the whole point of Witty.
3. FAVE MORE QUOTES
I've noticed this year that some of you are pretty
stringent with your faves. Which is cool. But just remember
that the more quotes you fave, the more quotes get faves,
and if everyone does that, theoretically, every quote gets
more faves on average. This is how to go from gettign 100
faves on a top quote back to getting 1000.
4. FOLLOW MORE USERS
Yeah, I get it, it looks 'messy' to follow a ton of
people or whatever. But the fact is that it's gonna get
more people to see more different users and their quotes.
And you also get to see more cool quotes on your own
homepage. And if everyone follows more people, then again,
theoretically, everyone gets - on average - more followers,
more people seeing their quotes, more traffic,
5. ADVERTISE WITTY
Put up posters! If you care enough or are bored enough,
take screencaps and post them on
facebook/twitter/tumblr/instagram/whatever else you waste
your time on. Tell the friends that you invite to invite
- use this website how you wish everyone would. If you
don't like a ton of boring layouts, make or use
exciting one (you can literally use ANYONE'S layout as
long as you keep credit; it's not that hard!). If you
don't like your quotes only getting five faves, then
fave more quotes. If you don't like quotes about
cutting, for example, then don't write them, don't
fave them, just ignore them!
- go to 'new' quotes before 'top quotes'.
Regularly check up on the 'people you follow'.
-Talk to users you like! It's fun! You're never
gonna make friends on here unless you comment users
you'd like to talk to. It also gets more traffic in
your page, btw. ;)
-For God's sake, stop complaining to Steve about every
little thing. He's not your mother. If you have a
problem, PLEASE try to solve it yourself before running to
the site creator for help.
-I'm biased on this one. But please, ffs, use nice
formats. And iclude credit, oh my god.
-I love love love going through all the quotes of users I
like. If you're bored or you feel there aren't any
good quotes here anymore, go to your followers list, and
read all of the quotes by someone. I tend to do this a lot
for users who have already left.
-Browse through 'following' lists. It's a great
way to find new amazing users.
-WRITING ORIGINAL QUOTES IS NOT HARD. And pretty much
everyone prefers it. So give it a try. :L
Okay, that's all
I can think off the top of my head right now. Suggestions?
Advice? Rants about the old witty and how much you miss it?
The comment box is your friend. :') I may make more
quotes like this. (Should I?) &&& what else
ACTUALLY DO THE STUFF ON THIS
P.S. Don't mind the tags. I need people to see this. xD
