Witty is kinda dead.
So here's what we should do.
1. INVITE YOUR FRIENDS
It's the best way to get more active users. You don't have to tell them your account, but just show them the website! As many people as possible; if you think they'll be interested, get them to join. People wonder why the 'old witty' used to be so active. It's because a lot of users would constantly be inviting new people to join, and recycling the community. It works, so do it!
2. WRITE MORE QUOTES
Traffic is so sloooooow for two reason; there aren't a lot of uers, and therefore there aren't a lot of quotes. So write more quotes! Make the 'New' page active again. I'm not saying you should make a quote of every mundane thought that goes through your mind (not that there's anything wrong with that) but seriously, how can you complain about inactivity if you only write two quotes a week? Look at all your absolute favourite usres, or the ones with the most followers; more often than not, they'll be active themselves, and write a lot of quotes. That's the whole point of Witty.
3. FAVE MORE QUOTES
I've noticed this year that some of you are pretty stringent with your faves. Which is cool. But just remember that the more quotes you fave, the more quotes get faves, and if everyone does that, theoretically, every quote gets more faves on average. This is how to go from gettign 100 faves on a top quote back to getting 1000.
4. FOLLOW MORE USERS
Yeah, I get it, it looks 'messy' to follow a ton of people or whatever. But the fact is that it's gonna get more people to see more different users and their quotes. And you also get to see more cool quotes on your own homepage. And if everyone follows more people, then again, theoretically, everyone gets - on average - more followers, more people seeing their quotes, more traffic, blahblahblah.
5. ADVERTISE WITTY
Put up posters! If you care enough or are bored enough, take screencaps and post them on facebook/twitter/tumblr/instagram/whatever else you waste your time on. Tell the friends that you invite to invite THEIR friends.
- use this website how you wish everyone would. If you don't like a ton of boring layouts, make or use exciting one (you can literally use ANYONE'S layout as long as you keep credit; it's not that hard!). If you don't like your quotes only getting five faves, then fave more quotes. If you don't like quotes about cutting, for example, then don't write them, don't fave them, just ignore them!
- go to 'new' quotes before 'top quotes'. Regularly check up on the 'people you follow'.
-Talk to users you like! It's fun! You're never gonna make friends on here unless you comment users you'd like to talk to. It also gets more traffic in your page, btw. ;)
-For God's sake, stop complaining to Steve about every little thing. He's not your mother. If you have a problem, PLEASE try to solve it yourself before running to the site creator for help.
-I'm biased on this one. But please, ffs, use nice formats. And iclude credit, oh my god.
-I love love love going through all the quotes of users I like. If you're bored or you feel there aren't any good quotes here anymore, go to your followers list, and read all of the quotes by someone. I tend to do this a lot for users who have already left.
-Browse through 'following' lists. It's a great way to find new amazing users.
-WRITING ORIGINAL QUOTES IS NOT HARD. And pretty much everyone prefers it. So give it a try. :L
Okay, that's all I can think off the top of my head right now. Suggestions? Advice? Rants about the old witty and how much you miss it? The comment box is your friend. :') I may make more quotes like this. (Should I?) &&& what else lalalalaaaa, yeah,
ACTUALLY DO THE STUFF ON THIS LIST PLS.
P.S. Don't mind the tags. I need people to see this. xD
