Welcome back! I hope you will stick around and get to know us...
i literally just returned to the site not even an hour ago so i will not judge the gif usage but i will (mentally) call out someone for inappropiate gifing!
Im relatively new here, so this is all i know. I use an android. I cannot post gifs or links. Or, maybe i can, but dont know how. Not learning.
I have tried using my laptop, but wayyy too much on the page.
What does '#' mean? Seriously - I see it referenced a lot, and I don't get it.
Congrats on being here 6 years.
So, you like Agree / Disagree? Or not?
it's my first visit in three years
the pound sign (#) used to be associated with only numbers and it's just a general hashtag now?
i am quite sure it's twitter's fault and stuff. haha and the old site used to be you'd either agree or disagree and maybe comment. there weren't pictures or the like not until maybe 2012 or something.
Interesting. I've been here a shorter time - it's all I've known.
So, how do you like it?
i'm a notorious lurker but seems a bit more cluttered given the addition of video/gif/photos. it doesn't line up properly in my eyes shrug
the blue is nice. very calming and pleasing to the eye even though too much is still happening on this site
Well, it's nice having you around again - out of the shadows!
Yeah, I knew that much - I've never been able to understand the significance of it though. Like in this post the OP writes "#throwback". Is it like emphasis? And when people talk and say the words - "hashtag-this, hashtag - that" I don't get it.
As far as I know, it's meant to highlight keywords or topics in your message, and to make it easier for other people to find content related to those keywords / topics.
In Twitter, for example, every hashtag-something in the message becomes a link. If you click on it, you get a listing of all the tweets that employed that hashtag.
For example, if I were posting (say) tips for people learning English, I could use the hashtags #English #EnglishTips, so when anyone searches for those hashtags, my content would appear among the search results.
I guess that's the basic purpose. Anyway, people seem overuse it.
Thanks Primero! That is the most complete answer anyone has ever given me. I appreciate it.
So, it's a Twitter thing and utter nonsense in general conversation.
You're welcome! I'm glad it was helpful. :)
Yes, pretty much a Twitter thing, but I forgot to add that the idea got copied over to other social networks (like Facebook, etc....).
lol. It is not that you're old. I think it's not so much about age. I also don't care so much about social networks.
I don't even have a Twitter account. And I rarely use my FB account.
Welcome back Korra. And yeah. The site went super downhill. If I could, I'd say "Yeah, You Are!" to your post.
