    yes … DO points have created collectors.  Some like every post they can and have no work posted.  As Charlie said DO points are sort of a social experiment so it may hit the bin if the concept is abused.   One new member went back and liked 250+ posts I had made and I had site notifications on each one.

    Hmmm, that’s an interesting take on a friend request, I can see why you might think that Peter. I do friend requests so I’ll get more of their stuff and to be friendly. I always figure the more friends on a very specific subject like Doodlewash, the better. On facebook, not so much, lol. I love all artists and used to check out everyone’s art before ruquesting then one day I realized I always appreciate a friend request so why wouldn’t a new artist to doodlewash?

    LOL, thomas, I wouldn’t be surprised if you saw that from me weeks ago. I realized I hadn’t liked any post from any friend, I just hadn’t realized it was a “thing”. Everyone had liked etc my stuff and it made me feel “seen”. so one weekend I went and liked as many things as I could. I’m sure in those two days I totally maxed out my like points but I did it because I felt badly that I hadn’t realized it was a thing. I’m pretty dumb when it comes to social media, I can’t get my facebook page to work right to save my life. Please don’t assume just becasuse you get a bunch of likes from someone, that they’re not just trying to say “I see you” and “sorry I didn’t do this sooner”. :o)

    Hi Jennifer, I understand your views but as in Facebook I collect fewer friends with closer interests. That way I see more art that I like and talk to people with similar interests. Too many friends means too much time on the computer instead of painting.

    Cheers

    I always welcome and friend every new member I see on the same principle that calls for welcoming the new kid in class.  It’s saying hello, this is a friendly place. don’t hesitate to jump in.

    On a related matter … What’s with the levels. Mine has just changed, what for? I don’t know, does it matter? probably not. Am I missing Jennifer’s thing? I don’t know. If points are an inducement to contribute I don’t really need them. If I were living in the States I could spend them on art stuff, but in the UK? Probably not. What I like is the flux of ideas and art work I see here, and I’m happy to contribute at a rate that suits me.

    Sandra, that’s exactly why I do it too. In fact, I never even knew we got points for that. I add friend requests to new people because I would feel lonely if no one wanted to friend me.
