Do you care how popular/appreciated you are on BJ?

My feelings on this has changed so much! When I first came into the Lounge etc I really wanted to be 'popular' on the site and acted deliberately provocative and did some hella stupid things which didn't exactly work in my favour laugh.gif Last year I was pretty inactive outside the Rih forum for most of it but when I was posting here and going on Plug I felt like things were getting better on here, I was having a lot more fun and I wasn't really bothered about popularity etc as I knew my disastrous first year would always kinda come against me and always be there when people thought about my time on the site. Coming at #85 or something in the rate was still frustrating though, ngl :')

I've posted in the lounge like 5 times this year oops which frustrates me because I've not talked to the people I was forming 'friendships' on here with last year but I suppose I'm the only person to blame really for that lmao. Hope to post more~

Eh, no. It's nice to be appreciated but I'm past the point where I consider it a requirement, if say I dropped tons in popularity levels it wouldn't concern me, but if I did something to genuinely upset someone here then it would.

I'm just going to continue to be friends with all the people I've made friends with on here and talk to anyone on here, new or old, as if they were. Let your actions in the present define you and don't worry too much about popularity, besides, we have pretty short memories. I don't hold things against people for what they've done in the past if they're making good now.

(this seems like such a butter wouldn't melt post but it's like exactly how I feel)

Not especially, as I think I'm quite different to the people who post in the Lounge. So, I don't get too hung up on people liking me as I can't control other peoples thoughts.

Think I get on okay with quite a few people though.

As time goes by, no. The only people whose opinion I care about are those fe wpeople who frequent the areas I like on this site (Kylie, Madonna, P!nk AFs and movie forum) and a few others who sadly don't post a smuch as they once did.
I've learned I don't fit in with the vast majority of people on here and kind of glad because the more I see the less I like.

Nah site status doesn't bother me tbh, as long as I'm not unjustifiably hated by the masses then I'm good! When it comes to the rate, scores don't bother me either as long as there's reasoning behind it, good or bad, that's what I'm here for, to read what people actually think of me rather than to see how many points I can gain laugh.gif

+1 to the "who???" comments though, that's the only thing thats ever irked me because people mark you down because they don't know you, but when you're a new member, the community can be quite intimidating because of its scale so you're really relying on "older" members to reach out and get to know you better rather than the other way around, so it's really their fault they haven't made the effort to find out who you are angel.gif

I'm not too fussed really, as long as people aren't actively calling for me to leave never to return.

Well it's lovely to be appreciated, obviously, I love reading nice comments about me in rates and all as I'm not big on self confidence so that naturally makes me feel better about myself and make me want to stick around here. The same applies to real life (though perhaps more difficult as rates aren't an option there tongue.gif).

Popularity though? Nah, maybe it was true in the first few years here (and it was certainly true irl on Facebook judging by my early statuses *shudders*), but I'm here primarily for the new music and the discussions with like minded people, and I've met some great people on here that I can talk to very freely and just those are more than enough to keep me on here rather than getting high positions in rates.

Gabriel Dropout, a comedy involving angels and demons (in traditional anime cute girl style) and a ton of usages of heaven/hell idioms.

I don't really have to try with popularity, I just know people are going to like me anyway. smile.gif

Nah I'm just here to make online friendships and share music so I'm pretty happy with the way things are going here. I have a feeling BJSC will keep me around forever now haha. wub.gif

I've skipped the rate for a few years now because 'popularity contests' are completely not what I'm on the site for. Here for the entertainment forums, Eurovision, some of the fun (games)/interesting threads in the lounge and then I have those I speak to off-site that I've formed real life friendships with.

I don't really mind if I am popular or not to be honest. I never set out to be. The Rate I just use as a sort of unloading tool and just fun at the end of the day laugh.gif

I really don't care, even though I got called a tryhard last year I couldn't care less about who likes me or not. I know who my friends on here are and that's all that matters really - ngl most of the people that dislike me on here have reasons to so it's all cool biggrin.gif

Ideally I'd like to be top 50 in the rate this year but either way idm happy.gif
