Recent traffic in wikinut has indicated a stead increase in new writers, I would like to welcome them!

Embarking on the wikinut journey

I have recently noted a significant increase in the volume of wikinut writers. I am glad to see these new authors and read their works. I am sure that many of the more veteran wikinutters are of like mind. We are happy that you have decided to join us here on wikinut.
I sincerely hope that you wil find that embarking on the wikinut voyage is fun, enlightening and rewarding in various ways.

A few words on wikinut

You will find that wikinut supports a great writing interface which lets you add picture content, neatly divides your writing into paragraphs and lets you enjoy the feedback of other authors as well as give them your own. Nutpoints are rewarded for logging in, posting pages, commenting, inviting new authors, gaining followers (and moderating). I am confident that you will find quickly, that the very friendly atmosphere of wikinut easily promotes gaining friends and comments as well as followers. I assure you that seeing you articles read and enjoyed is one of the more satisfying experiences of wikinut.

What should you write about?

Write about whatever you like. Poetry and creativity are highly valued on wikinut as well as infomational articles, practical advice, recipes or even book and movie reviews. Write about whatever you feel like and enjoy the process. You will be surprised at what people will find interesting and worthwhile and what people will ignore. I can tell from personal experience that many times I created "masterpiece" compositions only to find a neglible amount of comments and minimal readership.

Please respect wikinut

You will find wikinut to be a very respectable site. It is expected of you to write your own, original content, to respect all people, races and religion, to treat other authors with respect and to avoid content which is harmful, spiteful or otherwise inappropriate. This is basic etiquette and you can be fairly certain that the same respect will be given to you.

Welcome!

In short, in the name of all my fellow authors, welcome to wikinut!
We are happy to meet new writer, eager to read what you have to write,
wating to read the wise comments which you have to comment and looking forward to seeing more of your content!

Enjoy the experience!

Good afternoon, Legend. This should stay up for longer than a few days. I had not written a welcome article like this, however, I made up my mind when I changed writing sites to follow, comment, and interact. It has definitely paid off in many ways. In fact, there might be a place for not just the Writer of the Day, which I like, but a first article section like similar pages and stars. Anyone in the home office listening :) I would like to include a link to this for an article I am working on though. Would that be okay with you?

Thanks Legend,

I am fairly new here myself, only being here a few months now.

There is a lot here to learn about and to become familiar with.

I am not sure how old the site is, but every so often a bug still crawls out of the woodwork.

I had one the other day, so be careful to save your writing regularly and often.

I lost one of my articles to this bug that chomped it up quicker that a spider would have eaten a fly.

Hi Spirited,

I do know what you mean, I always, ALWAYS, write my article in a word document so that not only is it safe as I write, but I can also refer back to it for changes, additions, etc. Only once proofread and edited will I then copy and paste it to Wikinut. Just a tip for you because I too have experienced infrequent "bugs". :)

All the best - Porle

Hi Legend - you are living up to your name :)
I have been on here almost a year but only in the last few weeks have I started using it regularly and getting Wiki-nuttier. I am so glad you mentioned that you have 'created "masterpiece" compositions only to find a neglible amount of comments and minimal readership' as I am still searching for the formula to solid readership. My most successful article (by far) was not the one I expected it to be!
All the best - Porle
