How to follow your followers on Wikinut

I have published 25 pages on Wikinut so far and I enjoy writing and commenting on most of the articles.

I have attempted to make my understanding clear about Wikinut points that represent the number of followers and their following of your pages with comments.

Your followers on Wikinut

Soon after registering at Wikinut, I could publish a page but I didn't really know how to proceed further.

I quickly browsed across the help pages and understood that I must follow some authors and write my comments on their pages.

Then I browsed the other authors and started commenting on their articles.

I did not hesitate to choose the authors. I clicked on the text 'Follow this author' beside the authors, whenever I came across .

Then I saw my Wikinut points raising as the authors responded and started following me.

Some authors will not simply follow you, just because you are following them. You cannot openly make a request on their pages asking them to follow you.

Lesson: If you want to receive comments on your pages, you must follow other authors and start commenting first.

Getting the comments on your pages

When you post a comment, the authors readily post a reply comment on their pages but ignore your pages. This happens because they have not fully realized the technique of commenting on others' pages to win more views and Wikinut points.

And some authors will not post even a single comment on your pages, even though you would have been generous to comment on all of their pages.

So, if you really want to get more views and comments on your pages, you obviously have to try posting more and more comments on others' pages.

When you persistently follow the authors, they will definitely respond and post comments on your pages.

Lesson: If you want to get comments from more authors, you must persistently follow them and write comments on their pages every time they publish.

More followers bring more nutpoints.

I was hunting for the authors whom I missed to follow. Firstly I went on clicking the 'Follow this author' links, but soon I got them exhausted and browsed to find new authors to follow.

I browsed the profile pages of authors I follow, and then their followers and followed them by more clicks. The number of followers gradually increased but there is no way to see the list of authors you are following.

Lesson: If you want more authors to follow you, you must browse for more of them and follow them at once.

Never worry if you do not see all of your followers

Wikinut has a limitation of listing only 25 followers in the list, even though the information beside your profile pic shows more than 25 followers.

And another limitation is the number of followers won't increase immediately as you click many 'Follow this author' links in succession on a single day.

The number of followers increase only when they really follow you by clicking 'Follow this author' links beside your profile pic and as Wikinut updates that information. You can see it in your Nutpoints Report where it is reported as 'You gained a follower'.

Lesson: Don't expect to see all of your followers in the list, don't worry to see the big numbers of followers beside your profile pic even though you have already exhausted clicking all the 'Follow this author' links besides every author.

Nan Joe,
I felt following is very important on Wikinut, so I made this write-up.

Excellent points about getting comments, Following others, and gaining Followers.

As a moderator I dont have time to make many comments, but I must say I certainly do take note of which writers are more active in making comments on other people's pages.


Writers might also want to note who has left comments on their links - noting those people are active, and would like the favor returned.
If a person can only follow so many people - pick those who write things that REALLY interest you to read.

Mark,
Your comments mean a lot to me.

Also I find I like to keep an eye on the Featured Articles page to look for new people's stuff. Its very hard for new people to get comments, and if they get no comments- they often vanish... sad.
Star Pages are good to read too!

Interesting post dude.

Just enjoy following and commenting other's pages.

Nutpoints come from the following:

an approved post is 10 points
if someone followed you - 5 points
if someone commented your article - 2 points
daily visit is 1 point
refer a friend - 50 points

With all this talk of nutpoints, I have to ask, what is the purpose of them? Do you get something after so many? Or what??

Dafeenah,
Nutpoints show where you stand on the Wikinut, though it won't tell much about what you've earned monetarily.

Basically, the number of nutpoints that you have determine your ranking in the Wikinut community.

You've got my attention:) Thanks for following me and commenting on so many of my pages. It's a bit of a busy time for me. Haven't written anything on Wikinut in a while. It would be nice to get back here. I also write on helium.com and some assignment work for clients, as well. However, that doesn't mean I won't enjoy reading your work whenever I get the chance:)
