Hi Mary.

I tried to email you to say thanks for letting me know about the need to post images within each of my groups. Unfortunately it didn’t seem to want to send a message. As you may be aware I have recently joined Red Bubble. I haven’t entered the Forum area as yet. Thanks for the reminder.

Thanks for keeping us all in the loop.

Much appreciated.

Hey Mary, we’re really all here.
I think sometimes people just lurk they read and absorb but don’t comment.

@ Hello Dianne, thank for joining. I try to run a Tutorial Campaign. Lately visiting artists’ gallery I observed they joined many groups, but than when checking on a work, I observed that works doesn’t belong to any Group (check under work description). Having your work in multiple groups is like showing your work so many times…. I really don’t know how to explain it more clearly. I will try, and I will do so until needed :)

@ dear Barbara, I like your new Avatar, cute, cute. I like comments, weather positive or constructive criticism. This is how we can grow. When I say grow I understand more quality than quantity.

I would agree with Barbara, people read the comments but sometimes do not add some of their own.
Carry on doing the good work, we are behind you.

Hi Mary, you are not alone. I just started moderating a group myself (artistic feminine drawings and paintings) and get zero response from the members. (I wish I could learn from you). The fact that you are getting replies shows that you are doing a really good job! If you are looking for constructive feedback, surely one of us will do so when required.
Also, we will drop by to say hello :)

Hi Mary, yes, sorry, I am a lurker, I have read many,many of your forum posts, sometimes agree, sometimes not, but I always find your topics are both interesting and informative. I am not someone who enjoys getting involved in arguments,so tend to not comment when I don’t agree with someone’s posting.
Believe me, Mary, I really recognise all of your very hard work in the groups and I really respect and appreciate your very hard work and keeping the groups interesting and other lurkers MUST feel the same way as I do.

♦ Hello Ayan dear – thank you for your support ♥
♦ Ivana – you are so right, I totally agree with you. As simple appears at the first glace, rb is not easy at all. A lot of learning, but it also fun.
This is also the reason I posted so many tutorials. If anybody has questions, they are always welcome to ask.
♦ Hannah, I am glad you find the informations useful; thanks for posting
♦ Kay dear – welcome to the group. YOur wonderful gallery will be a great addition to our art collection. Thanks for posting ♥
♦ Samyukhta dear – I understand your point of view. Some members are silent participants, called lurkers The word doesn’t sound very nice, but in the web world this is how bystandars are called.
A group activity can be measured in number of members and works submitted to the group; participation in challenges (works and votes) and views. This is why I consider views as much rewarding as posted comments. Thanks for your support :)
