Mac, Great comment. This could spark a conversation thread, I think! ;) Now it is time to vote! :) Susan: I do think the 80/20 rule - Pareto principle is in play here too. Not all the members of a community want to participate actively in a way that they share comments, vote on stuff, link back, etc. 20% of the readers / visitors will participate with 80% of the content. Hopefully we will have great challenge here at BizSugar, increasing the percentage over time... I do think you could have different roles. I revert you to the Groundswell book and the six different profiles: Creators Critics Collectors Joiners Spectators Inactives Here at BizSugar we want to have all the profiles, excluding the inactives! ;) But you have to accept that a profile could change its activity level and for some reason become an inactive user for some time. No hard feelings here. Don't worry, be happy! Cheerio! :) Susan Oakes of m4bmarketing: "You spend more of your day, reading but not commenting on blogs, following others on Twitter and not participating, reading Google alerts and not taking some action""
I am funny mood today, so I have to share a Monty Python sketch: "Dirty Hungarian Phrasebook." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6D1YI-41ao For your information, I spent three months in Sopron, Hungary, doing a school project for a manufacturing company. I enjoyed my time in Hungary, but I must say that Hungarian is probably one of the most difficult languages. I had to brush up on my German and I tried to teach some English to members of the older generation. I learned a few phrases and words in Hungarian. Mind you, no "dirty" words... ;)"
Cindy, Hungarian is belonging to the same language group as Finnish and Estonian. The thing is that they don't really understand each other! ;) You will find some similarities in numbers and some words, but overall they are very different to each other."
