Steering Internet Traffic Into The Right Lane

Wikinut encourage writers to promote their posts on the internet, the moderators write very informative posts to guide and support us in the improvement of our writings. These are positive steps to both promoting ourselves as writers, and enhancing to the standard of the site.
Unfortunately there are negative aspects of the site which are not compatible with this..read on to find out more

Internet Highway

The road that transports traffic through the web.

We strive to attract the surfers to our writing site in many different ways.
We aim to steer the cyberspace traffic flow in our direction.

Search engines open the door to online visitors, providing tasters of what's on offer on the internet

Surfing The Net...

So let's assume for a moment you are a writer, searching for a prospective writing site to join.

You enter your search item into Google.

Of course Google is a very powerful search engine, so you won't be short changed by the options it will bring up.

You then click on wikinut and decide to have a look around the site..and you just might, come across this...

An Example Of Standards...

Now if you happen to be the type of person who is impressed by this.post ...then come on in...
...'Journeying Through The Miasma Of Mind And Imaging Within' ..
and here's the summary...
'A jumble of words, colours, sounds, images that come together under the auspieces (auspices) of the Beatles Music, Buffalo Springfield and some others too...enjoy!
Now 'rammed' right in the middle of this sounds, (auspices) of the Beatles Music, Buffalo Springfield and some others..there's this... with accompanying image as illustrated above

Aside from the fact that it is of absolutely no relevance to the Beatles music etc, it is an example of extreme ignorance and disrespect.
..

Neon lights flash
Sharp as a cutting sword
One slash
All gone
So is the sound of silence
Bad moon rises
Casting shadows everywhere
Rivers of darkness overflow
Meandering twixt banks of rotten miasma

The definition of miasma is - thick, unpleasant, unhealthy air, gas or mist; bad influence, not overlooking the highlighted miasma in this 'post'..is rotten miasma

Would you believe it...yes..I'm Scottish
One of the many verbal attacks thrown at myself by this wikinut 'writer'.

Just what every prospective online reader is looking for..and exactly the right image to attract new writers on to the site isn't it!.

And If You're Not Impressed...

..Then you are obviously going to 'drive on' and keep searching.

Not a very inviting or encouraging impression of the site.

It goes without saying that these irrational and repetitive verbal attacks are extremely unacceptable to myself in being part of this writing community, but it also casts a very negative shadow over the site itself.

How can we know how many prospective new writers have looked into the site and have been discouraged by these types of posts, or if any potential advertising revenue had gone down the tubes accordingly.

Why should wikinut permit writers who are prone to lowering the tone and image of the site to continue writing here.

Promoting the image and standards of wikinut must go right across the board, inclusive of more thorough vetting of articles for offensive content , prior to publication.

There's Always A Choice....

My portfolio as an online writer is held on wikinut.

As many other writers here do, I contribute to the site on a regular basis.

Is this fair to those of us who are faithful to wikinut, and whose objective is to enhance the site, and want the site to grow and prosper?

Would I recommend wikinut to anyone under these circumstances, No chance!.

We talk about improving summaries, content, presentation, adding value to the site etc, yet at the same time these types of posts are being condoned, published and star rated.
Where is the logic in that!

Do Wikinut Want To Keep Writers?

I want to be able to rely on this site I am part of, contribute to, and hold in great affection, in return, to uphold the moral standards of the site, as I know do many other writers here.

Neither myself, nor any other writer on this site, should be the target of personal abuse.
I sincerely hope to see wikinut do more to prevent this type of thing from happening.

Dear Mariah, I am sad to read this post. Though I have not been abused in this site I have been dealt with unjustly in life few times. I have generously forgiven them though the hurt replays often, but I brush them off.

I take a view people are not fools and know to judge others. I know my self-worth and it does not depend on others to judge me though I value their support. When I take a just path I feel that is a reward by itself. And I can feel the Creator not only holding my hands but also guiding me through thick and thin. We have a large community of kind, considerate, compassionate and supporting co-writers and moderators for us to feel comfortable to post our articles. Those who read our posts outside our circle also know where we are coming from. So personal insults will just get ignored as it has always happened to me. It serves us well to just move on looking ahead. Why give others the right to hurt us? siva

My dear wee hen ..
I have to agree with Siva here ..We will always have some who oppose or disagree with what and how we may write , but we must be true to ourselves and keep faithfully writing for those who accept us and will encourage us along the way .
My dear friend ...we have the Delete button if we are not happy with anything anyone writes that is disagreeable ...
I hope I never give you cause to use it my wee lass .
Many blessings today
Your wee friend
Stella ><

Let's all look straight ahead to bring glory to wikinut. Let's not be bothered by thorns on the way; they're part of the process.

I thank you nc, I know your intentions are sincere and well meaning.
This situation has been going on for too long my friend, like yourself I love to write, but I see no glory to be found in wikinut anymore, it has become a platform for public slander from my perspective.
A good friend and fellow wikinut writer once commented that to ignore wrong doing is to condone and unfortunately that's the path that is followed here now.
That said, I acknowledge your comment in the good faith and spirit of which it is intended with great appreciation.

Hello Mariah,
I am sorry to hear you have been slandered. I have never been the subject of abuse on any of my articles, but I have been slandered on the i nternet for being a writer. I think jealousy and insecurity in their own life played a part in that, so I pity that person rather than myself because my life is happy, and maybe theirs is not.
