Dear Staff, please reply

There are a lot of things that annoy me, my sister, my dad, people who let me carry them along when we're doing group work in school, people who say something's stupid without trying it, and the focus of this blog. I just hate it when staff ignore my messages. Not about community questions, when I make an effort to befriend them, or at least start up a chat.

Even when I'm real busy, as soon as I get on PC I first check my VMs, random or not I reply. Sometimes I forget which is understandable. But sometimes it seems the staff just ignore me or other people for no reason. Not all the staff do this but quite a few do, they just don't reply. Sometimes I'll think "Oh it's just an accident, I'll try to start up a convo again, and they won't reply. I've seen times where a member tried to talk to a staff member about 10 different times. No reply on any but about 2. It was pretty sad.

Some of the staff need to get off their high horse and humor us members when we try to start up a conversation. Is it too hard to just reply?

Well that's just what i had to say and I wrote it quickly before school. I know this won't change anything but if any of you staff are reading this (most importantly the H-staff) go make your VMs public, and the next time somebody gives you a VM, go reply. Now on that note...

    " if you browse their VMs they're constantly talking to other people when the person they ignored actually had a good conversation starter "

    I use the Control Panel to respond to VMs. The User CP shows the 5 most recent VMs. I respond to these. The members respond almost immediately. So, I appear to be constantly talking to these same members while ignoring the 6th, 7th, 8th etc members. Any messages from last month (e.g. your VM from July!) and beyond are basically out of my reach. :P

    When I do get around to bulldozing through my currently NINETY FIVE pending visitor messages, I may take a few HOURS to finish. I genuinely try to respond in a creative way in order to keep the discussion going. ^^;

    Within 5 days, I kid you not, my visitor messages are back up to the 80s or 90s. I imagine most staff members are in my same situation, RIGHT???

    Hopefully that shed some insight into how things are operating on the other side of the fence. Usually, you aren't being ignored. :B Please don't assume the worst in people. :3c

    I don't really notice this much. Whenever I drop a convo, it'll be either because I forgot to reply or because the convo was getting boring and I had nothing to say, and this is usually what i see from others. Do you ever think that you might be putting more emphasis on staff VMs because it's staff? I don't see why non-staff VMs aren't as important.

    Wow. Way to just throw your immense popularity in our faces. How insensitive!

    Oh well I didn't even know you could check your VMs from your CP.
