A Solution? Proud to be a Wikinut...

Here is my personal opinion on how to improve the site I call my writing home, Wikinut.

Proud to be...a Wikinut!

This article is offered as an open suggestion...

A doorway to all outside Wikinut readers is opened through the Wikinut page.
It is their first stop, and sometimes their only stop. So it is the Wikinut page that offers the most possibility for page views.

My idea is a simple one. Make the Star pages the Wikinut page.
This a win-win situation. Wikinut would be putting its best face forward. Star pages become the Wikinut front page and thus Wikinut's opening public image. The Star page now would be the lead page linking to all newly published articles.. Presenting a star quality page, working to achieve that coveted star, all that extra time and effort, not only would give us a warm feeling and shining smile, but a reward of just desserts ...page views!

Thank you for listening, I am proud to call you all my Wikinut friends .

Good point, Delicia. Basically, Wikinut would be showcasing its best articles on any given day. I think you have a great idea.

I think it would be a good idea to have 2 Star Page articles featured, but yet it is also good to have other articles there too so that everyone has a shot of being on the main page.

I would like to see the "Writer of the Day" thing changed a bit so that it would feature a writer who has published something in the last 30 days, and would also link to their most popular article (not necessarily their most recent one).

it is not really a featured page as such now- all new articles pass briefly through- until frozen by much deserved down moderation time-what I suggest is the links at the top remain the same...Star pages becomes the meet and greet sending the reader unto the newly published pages as the Wikinut page does now...

Hey, I like Mark's idea of the writer of the day. Some people who are featured haven't written anything new in months and sometimes years.

the one at the top...yes that would be a great!... and maybe, it could be a way to welcome a fairly new Wikinut writer- that would be exciting...

Hello Delicia,

There is a sneaky option to send your link to any Wikinut page you like. You can find the tool on the "Invite friends" page. So, for example, you can send your link to the health category using the following URL:

http://www.wikinut.com/in/rolno/family.wikinut.com/~zjjjd/health

You can choose to send the the link to either the front page of the site or to the star pages as follows:

http://www.wikinut.com/in/rolno/www.wikinut.com/
http://www.wikinut.com/in/rolno/www.wikinut.com/starpages/

But in general I think you are right - the star pages would be a good place to take new users. I will update the default destination, it is a very easy change.

I'll also have a look at the writer of the day change, that's a good idea and worth thinking about.

Thanks for the feedback.

I'd rather prefer your lovely dessert
than some star
its just ego satisfaction

Dear Delicia, thanks a lot for the new ideas. There is also a requirement of improving payment for writing articles. As wikinut payment is low, many writers wrote more articles in Expert Column, Bubblews, Publish Us.
That could have been reduced.

Delicia, it's so nice to see your smiling face. I was reading one of Siva's articles and I saw your comment and wanted to stop by and say hi. This is an excellent article and idea. Everyone seems so friendly and nice on Wikinut. I'm thankful to have somewhere to go since Yahoo has given us all the boot. Some of my dearest writing buddies are on here including you so I'm very happy and thankful for that. You know what they say when one door closes another opens.

I like this suggestion for star pages.

I also want to say that I've read several pages of your poetry and find it . . . no words, which I why I didn't comment on those pages. Poetry is, for me, difficult to critique. I have to become more familiar.

Very neat idea..though some star badged articles are not well earned against a good post with better composition. It would be nice that we incorporate the two in one page. With just few selected feature and possibly another portion for the Author of the day. I think that would be a good smorgasboard for a very appealing Homepage.
