Those of you who pay close attention to the site probably noticed a little forum link showing up in the menu bar last week, but today we are officially launching the Hijinks Inc. Forum!
We here at Hijinks have been looking for more ways to promote user interaction and to give people reasons to visit the site more often, adding a forum seemed to be a logical step and we really hope you guys stick around and take advantage of it.
If you’ve previously registered for an account on Hijinks Inc. we’ve reserved your username for you, however you’ll need to reset your password in order to access the forum. Resetting your password does not change your WordPress password, that will remain untouched.
New user, or not sure if you have an existing WordPress account? Just register for a new forum account.
We played around with bridging the user databases, but it slowed things way down and was awfully buggy. So for the time being you’ll need to login / logout of the forum and the blog individually, using separate accounts.
If you have any problems, or have feedback, please let us know.
They say that 87% of all statistics are made up on the spot, and 63% of all those crazy holidays you hear about completely don’t exist. It may not actually be National De-Lurking Day, but we here at Hijinks Inc. are choosing to celebrate it today.
I ran across an article on this website and thought that we ought to have a day to de-lurk and get to know some of you who frequent our website, not only to make us feel better about ourselves, but because we’d like to continue to write about the stuff that interests you.
So here’s what we’d like you to do, we’d appreciate it if you would take some time and leave us a comment or two. We’d love it if you’d look over a few of our articles and comment on all of them. In fact, over the course of the next 30 days, each comment you leave (worthwhile comments only, don’t break a single comment into 2 or 3 just to up your total) will qualify you to win a $25 iTunes gift card. The more comments you leave, the more you’ll be qualified to win!
If you choose to add a comment below, don’t think of it as a favor to me but as a favor to everyone else. See, as much as I enjoy reading a comment, I can assure you many comments are added just because other comments preceded them.
In this vein, if you choose to de-lurk and leave a comment, here’s what to do:
