Triond is a great place to learn from others and have fun. There are always very interesting articles to read, some are funny, some are sad and many are educational. Triond is not a place to expect great fortunes, but it is a very good place to express yourself and then anticipate how your work is received by others. This article offers some suggestions on how to enhance your experience with Triond.
Occasionally, some writers have problems submitting their credentials when they make comments on the articles they read. Here are a couple tips: Once you write your comment, the next step is to copy the alphanumerical code at the bottom of the comment box into the adjacent empty box. Then, before submitting your comment, click in the empty box, next to the question: “Post comment with your Triond credentials?” Two empty boxes will appear. Enter your Triond Username and Password and then submit your comment. Here is where some problems arise. If you type in the alphanumerical code incorrectly, it will not take. Also, Triond only allows a certain amount of time to enter your comment. If you entered the wrong code and/or took too much time before submitting your comment, your name will not be highlighted for others to check your credentials, or your comment may not have taken. To ensure everything went okay, after you submit your comment, check the article to see that your comment is there and your name is highlighted.
Criticizing someone’s grammar and spelling.
This is an issue that should be given serious thought. I know we all like to show that we know how to write and we are good using the English language, but sometimes our public criticism of the way someone misspells words or use grammar incorrectly can be hurtful to that person. Some writers do not mind being corrected in public. I find these writers are generally not Americans and are learning the language as a second language. However, correcting someone in public is not normally an American value. We generally try to do this in private. If you are tempted to correct someone’s writing, I would suggest you contact them by message first and find out what they prefer. In other words, do they care to be corrected in public or on private?
We Can help each other by clicking “I like.”
I understand that the more the “I LIKE” button on an article is clicked, the more someone can earn. I often see articles that writers are viewing often, but little, to no I LIKES. Let me put it this way, aren’t we a social family with pretty much the same goals, that of being recognized and maybe making a few dollars? Come on friends, unless the article is really bad or you can’t stand it, help out and click the I LIKE button when you view someone’s work. If you can take the time to comment on the article, why not also click the I LIKE button.
Most writers are supportive of others and friendly even when they disagree with an article, but I have run into some very rude writers who write very nasty and hateful comments, including calling me nasty and hateful names. This is seen often with articles speaking on political issues. They do not realize (or don’t care) that they lose their credibility and respect as writers. I generally try to respond to their criticism, but only once. If they come back again and haven’t changed their ways, I ignore them. Remember this: “You cannot argue with a fool and you cannot fix stupid.”
Making money on Triond has much to do with writing often, making friends and their responses.
The number of articles you submit and the nunber of friends that you make and their comments on your work are directly proportional to the earnings you will reap. A great and interesting article without friends and comments is wasted. If you are interested in making money, you must make friends and welcome their comments. responding back to them, thanking them for their comments goes a long way in developing a following. The more articles you submit, the more you will be recognized. However, there are writers who submit just about anything just to add to his/her volume. I would discourage this behavior because many writers will not respond to articles without substance.
Many flood articles they read with meaningless comments.
Comments such as “good,” “okay,” and so on are not a good way to respond to someones work. I know we are all busy and we read many articles written by our friends. I know it is hard to take time to put time into our comments, but just think for a moment how you feel getting thoughtless responses to your articles. Don’t you appreciate some deeper thought on your work, other than, “good?” Personally, I try to get the gist of the article and make a thoughtful comment, often as it relates to my life. Thoughtful comments indicate to the author that you really did read and think about his/her subject, instead of just trying to cover the bases. Personally, I think that if a thoughtful comment cannot be written, no comment should be written.
