hmmm, SezWho????

Not to sure about this thing called SezWho. I'd had a look at it a little while back and figure it was something I just didn't need. Seems to me like nothing more than another toy.

Now SezWho and Entrecard has come together and we get credits for making comments. Why? I mean, I don't need to get paid for making a comment. Sure not going to make a lot from it because I comment very little. And sure isn't going to make me want to comment any more than I do. Yeah, I know I maybe need or should comment more. I read a lot of blogs. But I don't bother to comment unless I really have something I want to say and I won't start spamming blogs just to get paid credits.
I see it the same with this site. I post what I see interesting to me. It's a hobby and nothing more, so I don't really do any post for anyone else but me. I feel what comments I do get, is because you want too and not because you feel your getting something from it.

That was before now. I know most of you are true when you leave comments here, but now I am sure this site and many more sites will be getting more comments just because people are getting paid to do it. Not me! I'll comment if I have something to say, if not, I'll read and move on.

Plus this SezWho thing is a little slow. Ok, that is when it works/shows. I loaded it late last night, nothing worked. I came on the site today and it works but the little stars seems to delay in showing up. And that  pop up that shows people past comments is so annoying! It would maybe be alright if it popped up, then when you move the cersur off of the subject, it would go away. But you have to take time to check the x to turn it off.
I installed SezWho just to go along with others and to be a 'Team Player'. But I just can't say at this minute just how long I will leave on this site.

    Now I see it's breaks the signature too. GRRRRR!!!
    This is not going to ast very long.

    Guess you've uninstalled it already because I don't see it. No stars and no popup. You know I never noticed popups on my site and I've had it for over a month now. Maybe I just have been in la-la land or maybe they changed stuff since I loaded it. Who knows.


    BTW, I'm not commenting because I'm getting paid to. I doubt the payments will last long as the payments for posting every 3 days sure didn't. I think I allgot one or two of those and I post darned near every day across all 3 blogs.

    I'm giving it a try, but I am skeptical about the quality and quantity of comments that people are going to get from adding SezWho to their blog. I'll give it a try and see if it helps network at all or if its something I don't need on my blog.

    I'm kinda feelin' the same way. I guess the "new" wore off quickly for me as well. I guess just as anything we should "give it time", right? I just have my doubts about my mind changing right now. We'll see...

    I installed it yesterday as well, and so far, I like it.. I like the idea, and I really like it if someone comments on my blog. I felt it was high time people got more incentive to write comments, or just a hello.. which they were too lazy to do..
    SezWho is a great concept..give it time..

  • FeelingFlirty said....

    I've decided not to do the sez who. I want real comments not a bunch of flak from people who need credits. I think it cheapens the whole exercise.

    I'm giving it a try, but I'm feeling quite intimidated by the rating system. I think I'd roll over and die if someone gave me a bad rating :)

  • chilly said....

    Hi everyone and thanks for stopping in. :-)

    The "Giving it time" is not a problem at all. As I said, I didn't care for SezWho before Entrecard teamed up with it. But willing to go along with it. My biggest problem with it is the SezWho script is breaking other scripts on this site. I am working on finding a fix at my test blog. If I do get it working right, then I may install it back on this site, maybe. But also still not happy with the pop up box with paste comments.

    I guess I'll stick to not being a team player.

    I don't see the point in rewarding someone for having something to say. People can try to spin it however they want, that's the bottom line: that the majority of them will be commenting more in a weak, farcical attempt to gain credits.

    How many comments will people see that are absolutely worthless from all of this? Odds are that number skyrockets because of this "great partnership."

    I don't mind being the voice of dissent, and I know that there are a fair number of people who agree. SezWho will merely become an afterthought shortly, once the luster wears off.

  • Ana said....

    I didn't install SezWho, I think this pretty much sums up my opinion. Sorry for not being a team player. I have already enabled do-follow comments which in my opinion is worth more for the commenter.

  • Elle said....

    I installed the thing, and I managed to completely screw up my comments etc. Needless toay, I'm off of it and back to y old comments. I guess I won't be on the team either.

  • historylover said....

    Hi, Yeah i noticed it does slow things down on my blog, so i'm not happy about that. I joined in to see how it might work, not just to get credits, if I start getting a lot of useless and stupid comments i will take it off. I don't comment on many blogs unless i really find something that I want to comment on. so we'll see how it goes.

  • jitendra said....

    Hey Guys, Jitendra from SezWho here...The performance issue is a thing of the past...Now the SezWho performance should be pretty good...Please let me know specific cases etc. and we will address them.

    Thanks, Jitendra

    i have noticed each site that downloaded Sezwho now loads slower. At first, I was disappointed that the widget had no support or code for my blogs format but now I am glad i couldn't install it.

  • FRIGGA said....

    I signed up, I figured why not. :) I'll give it some time to see how it goes...

  • LadyBanana said....

    I added it last night but I don't think I like it much either, it looks like a whole lot of clutter under my posts and like you I blog for a hobby, so I don't want people feeling obliged to comment when they don't really want to..

    Have to give it a few days then decide what I'm going to do.

  • Karen Bastille said....

    I'm trying to get the hang of Sezwho - I do enjoy reading and commenting - but I'm not at all sure that I know how this is supposed to work. It's nice to say hello anyway though, isn't it?

  • Fatherlyours said....

    I guess we all to try whatever is new.I am happy and satisfied right now with the partnership. Let us wait and see what other people's view about this partnership
