:pinkiegasp: I just came up with a new category for this site centaur!

365745 I agree. My first feature came around 30 followers, and then 90, and then I bounced up from there with the other features. But, I've seen writers with over 2000 followers miss the box entirely. I think a lot of it still depends on whether or not people enjoy the concept of what you write. Which, in most respects, is how things should be.

Still, worthiness first, popularity after.

And besides, lots of followers isn't necessary to become popular. When I got my first feature-boxed story, I think I had less than 20 followers.

Nor does having lots of followers necessarily mean you'll be popular. After that first featured story, despite then having over 100 followers, I struggled for a long time to get another featured story, only succeeding much later, after about a dozen failures.

(How did I do it again? By spending nine months working on one story. It's not always so, but from my point of view, it sure looks like the hard way is the only way.)

That makes me really happy to hear you say that. I just got my first real hater and when I went to look at this group I was happy because there are lots of nice people here. And even if we disagree we settle our disagreements like civilized human (or pony) beings.

Hm maybe I should threaten to hug meeester

365675 in part what you say is true, which is why I don't ask anyone to follow me. I'm here to follow others since I don't follow very many, and I'd like to help new authors with their stories. I think that's one of the principal ideas of groups like this - to help new writers get their work to a point where it will be worthy of netting them some popularity. :scootangel:

:unsuresweetie:
Follow/follow back schemes may net you a lot of followers, but they aren't useful followers. They don't read your stories... or your blog posts... or anything.

I understand wanting to feel better based on a big number... but if you got that big number by shortcuts, is it really meaningful?

365654 ah I was just joking thanks by the way:twilightsheepish:
