This post is about a test. I posted two items yesterday and my points moved from 853 to 854! ONE point! So I am posting this as a test to see if I can truly get more from Gather than ONE point awarded for something with original content!
I used to write a lot of poetry and had a lot of fun getting feedback from my friends here on Gather. I also would post stories about my life growing up on a farm in central Indiana and I learned a lot about myself that way. I liked posting and I was not worried about the points, until they cut them drastically several years ago. Since that first cut which Gather was pretty much up front about I was not very faithful in signing on even at times staying away for months at a time! I have been more faithful signing on to Gather of late and I am still not really concerned about the few points I earn here. There are people here though who counted on the dollars earned here through the points system to cover monthly shortages or for added expenses such as birthday and holiday gifts etc. These are the people that will go do something else instead of being on Gather.
I will see what points I have tomorrow, as I said I have 854 currently…..
Do you think there has been a slow down in the way points are awarded at Gather?
