Happy New Year 2014! 🙂
In this post I am going to introduce “Karma Wrangler”, a secure way to get more engagement in Klinkk blogging community.
please note : this is applied just to new registered users at klinkk.
One of the most common issues in a bookmarking site like Klinkk, is to “force” new users to actively participate to the community, instead of merely submit their post and leave the site.
Do not misunderstand me, many of you already do that.
In other words, before submit your own content, you vote other stories, both on homepage where you find “Published Stories” or in the “New” section of the site.
But I have noticed that some new members after registration, they still submit solely their posts and they leave Klinkk right away.
This is the screenshot that you got if you register to Klinkk and you try to submit your content, without voting first to other stories:
There is a nice feature that I am going to introduce since now on, called “Karma Wrangler”, that forces all NEW users to have voted on previously submitted content before they are themselves allowed to make submissions.
I have decided to set to 5 the default number of stories you need to vote before you can enter your own content.
I think that is the right compromise.
This feature will help to promote stories faster by making users actually have to participate before they are allowed to add any submissions themselves.
I am sure this little change will not bother anyone, but instead will help increase the engagement in this new great blogging community, which is Klinkk.
What do you think?
Do you like this new feature?
