You should've mentioned #goodlongreads! There's weeks of amazing reading in that tag. Maybe even read through the ol' Best Of lists: 2013, 2014, 2015. What they should also know is that there's always room on hubski for questions. If you don't know what to say, ask.

Pubski is an open, ongoing diary of the people of hubski. It shows the personal nature of this site, and it's precisely those people (not 'users' or some other dehumanizing word) that make the site what it is.

I've been wondering about that. I've only just joined, so is it appropriate to leap in and start documenting there, or should I keep quiet for a while until a couple of people have actually started to care what I'm doing?

I'd say just jump right in. The quickest way to get people to care about what you're doing is to start talking about it.

I think you're right. Thanks for the encouragement!

Ha, I just joined yesterday and have been making myself familiar with the site too!

I have started throwing myself into debates. 😳 I was a high contributor on reddit, so will be working on holding back a bit here, hehe.

Don't hold back too much! I've actually already noticed you on a couple of the Trump threads and I've enjoyed your input.

I'm so embarrassed about this. At the same time, I miss having an open, ongoing hubski diary.

The downside of being stable and functional is there's less obsession about reporting from the psychological front. I'll have to change that. - OK just kidding.

Great tip (and tag suggestion), thanks! Surely I'll have questions and I appreciate the encouragement to ask away.
