Though its moderators have done their best for writers, Wikinut is not a website of choice for best writers as you can see as follows, but let me start with one with optimism and thanks overtaken by time:
Message Of Thanks To Wikinut(ters): A 2011 Year Ender
Thank You, My Dear Wikinutters, For Reading And Most Especially -- For The Comments!
It goes without saying that we write to be read and the views matters, but that not seems to be enough. The motivation not only comes from the number of views we see everyday when we look at our Stats page, the force that drives us is also the number of comments our fellow Wikinutters take the time to make at the end of the day, after we have written our piece, such as it is, humbly speaking.
For starting me on a journey to Wikinut, especial credit goes to Rathnashimakamani.
Thanks all Wikinutters!
Thank You, Mark And Johnny, For Having Given Me The Coveted STAR PAGE Badges!
Unbeknownst to most, veterans and newbies alike, backstage as we submit our articles are two shadowy figures who work not just relentlessly reviewing our pages but also offering sound and great advice to make our page readable to the audience at large, grammar-wise and formatting-wise.
Isn't it great that an American (now Canadian), Mark Gordown Brown, and a proud, jolly, Britisher, Johnny Dod, work together as Wikinut moderators to breathe down our necks in order to make our articles better and presentable?
And by the way, highest in this hierarchy, at the top of the totem pole, is none other than the Chief Nut, Andy Walton, without whose initiative to launch Wikinut, we would have been strait-jacketed to Triond, Hubpages, Yahoo Contributor Content, etc...lol
Thanks, Mark, Johnny and the Chief Nut!
Thanks To Steve Kinsman For His Series -- Ode To Wikinut Friends!
When I just started writing here, Steve Kinsman started a series of articles up to this day titled, Ode to Wikinut Friends, which in no small measure helped become the launching pads for many Wikinut newbies to be known, not to mention promote their articles, to the World at large!
For Steve to mention my name twice in this series of Odes has been a great privilege for me, a great writer that he is.
I owe you, Steve. Thank you.
My Finest Hour: I most Especially Thank Songbird B's Ode to Buzz
This oh, so lovely British writer, Songbird B, otherwise affectionately called Bev, have masterfully composed general essays and romantic poems for our delectation. And as if it were not enough, she's now considered a published writer on a book soon to be published.
The "B" in her name, Songbird B, is always open to 2 different interpretation, for it's either "Bev" or "Buzz"...lol
Thank you so much, my dearest friend, Bev!

At Wikinut, Why Are Our Older Articles Keep Sinking Into "The Invisible Bottom Of The Sea"?
Every time we've finished a new article or poem, we nicely lay out a link at the end, something like: "See my previous work," or words to that effect only for the readers to see only 25 of them, when the entire work goes to hundreds, or even thousands.
Page Visibility Of 25 Articles Only?
Forgive me if I have overlooked something, or just been plainly naive, but has everyone noticed that when we write a new page, an older article at the tail end gets swallowed up into oblivion, never to be seen again unless you search them at the "Search" Wikinut button (if you care to do so, anyway)?
Followers, Too, Are Pulled By The Whirlpool
But not only that, the same is true of our followers as well. The more new followers we gain, the more we forget of the old ones since they keep on sinking and sinking into the bottomless pit of invisibility...bye, bye, folks!
There have been many friends we accumulated through our writing for Wikinut. Earlier period when we got to know them had been very warm indeed. Today, we are at a loss who they are, only distinguishable by them commenting on our pages, which is few and far between.
The only one friend, who was the first to introduce me to Wikinut, buried though he is in my Wikinut followers, is Clark Gable look-alike Rathnashikamani. Thanks, Rath. I'm sure our mustache will always link as together as friends.
Wikinut Has Accomplished Much, So Far.
But it isn't so much the followers as endangered species, so to speak, as the pages in their entirety that care must be taken to ensure that they are intact and still very much visible in case readers there are interested enough to delve deeper into our work which, unfortunately, they can only see so much as the rest of the work are literally buried.
As I've said, a link is a link. We do that to draw attention to our previous work. Interlinking our articles from the beginning to the present doesn't seem to do the trick. For one thing, new authors, and most veterans, anyway, neglect to that. For another, all things considered, it is supposed to be Wikinut's responsibility that all work of its authors should be ever "visible" at all time regardless of whether they add new pages.
At any rate, we can now message each other through the "contact" button of our public profile page.
Not only that. We can now delete inappropriate comments. And SPAM, damn it!
Thanks to the Chief Nut!
