I see a lot of new members that have signed up for some time and haven't written anyhting yet.

i know I've given some support to a few referrals and waited to see .

Anyone else notice this?

Are they going to be deleted after a certain time?


Do what makes you happy- I write and create Hubpages

No, we don't delete those accounts. Who knows what their situation is? Maybe they just want to read everything in the forum, etc. We'll wait and see.  :)

Sometimes people sign up for a site, then get sidetracked, and come back later and write.

Sometimes people sign up for a site just to use the forums, to leave a comment, or just because they thought it offered something different to what they found.

If you look at Hubpages, there are literally thousands of accounts that have never written a single hub.

Sometimes they sign up so that they can contact us with an e-mail after having read one of our articles. I have had 3 people do that. They really don't have any intention of writing here on Wizzley...just wanted to ask me a question. Two wanted a "free" appraisal on some items they had and the other was really cool...she is the daughter of the artist that I wrote about.

Like my father always told me,

You can lead a horse to water but you cant make him drink!

While I haven't referred anyone to Wizzley yet over the years I got a few hubbers, about 50 and only 3 if that write...and only 1 is actually active in the long run.

Its hard to convince people you can actually make money writing at places like these. I even shared my amazon sales and showed the receipt from Google Adsense and still people are like "No, money doesn't generate online."

Well, for what it's worth, I have signed up over a month ago, and just now got around to writing a couple pages.

It always takes a bit of an effort to start on a new platform, figure out what the requirements are, etc. And  for someone who has never written before, just figuring what to write about, might be daunting...

I wish more new members would take the time and read our requirements before they start writing. Yep.
