Mandatory lurking period

Josiah Gray

Hey pol

How long is the mandatory lurking period? I'm on month 15 and still can't get anyone to interact with me unless I get digits. It's frustrating but I understand that it needs to happen.

My guess is 2 years

and still can't get anyone to interact with me

I had this same experience. Now, I post on like 10 threads at once, on an ongoing basis (keep the tabs open and watch for the red notification) -- I'll get some reply every 10 minutes or so throughout my time on Sup Forums.

tl;dr: Post more and you'll get some responses. Also, fun pics can't hurt your reply r8 m8.

Just post what you feel, who cares what other people think or if they respond. Stop being needy for their attention.
The people who tell you to lurk are retards, who just want you to be just like them and say the things they say. Don't, be like you, and speak up.

I can't even remember how long it takes. I remember looking like an idiot and getting no responses all the time when I first started posting on Sup Forums in 2008.

My first foray into internet commenting was on shoutwire which was like a digg clone I discovered because for whatever reason that website was on the frontpage of torrentspy. Anybody remember shoutwire?

Just keep lurking and posting when you got something good to say. After 15 months you should begin to understand the structure of communication we use here.

If you really need (you)'s use some pick of a big titty vandersloot in your reply.

Wrongo fago. It's not about attention. You're missing the whole point you reddit refugee. It has to do with seeing if you're qualified to be posting. People who lurk and absorb the culture understand what is and isn't acceptable behavior and what kind of posts are worthwhile. If you got some new information then by all means post it, but you should lurk until the board culture is second nature to you. You fucking manlet.

Gavin Watson
Gavin Watson

It's weird. The more reckless and "get to it" you write, the more responses you get.
Memes that took one hour are worse than five minutes if the punchline is better.

With shills around everyone won't be bothered to write long texts, we have so little time for bullshit yet so much time to browse.
Comments with a lot of substance receive a lot of attention, comments of just an inch less get none but a "huh, made me think".

Your posts may still be read by many despite no comments and in real life you often times want to feel prepared mentally to spout whatever it is you want said, shitposts remove this barrier because everyone is user, not a man taking the word.
The climate become a sober barfight with lots of shouting over the ones talking, but sometimes the shouts strike best.

Lincoln Howard

Dude don't be such a fucking attention whore. Noone with any testosterone should give a fuck how many replies you get. That's your problem, you're saying things to try and fit in, or be part of the community. You are here reading, so you are part of the community. Your very awakening makes you part of the community. Just read what people write and if you know something that noone else seems to know, tell people. They might be like "fuck off fag" but pfft, give a shit. You're not here to win approval, you're here to learn or to teach, or to just take the piss and have fun. Either way, caring about other people's feelings and approval is what is making you weak and unsure of yourself. Free yourself of the need for validation and just be yourself. Noone knows who you are anyway.
So grow some balls, remember that you are a fucking stone cold hero motherfucker who's ancestors bought you an air of superiority, and call someone with a muppet view a fucking faggot. You'll feel better.

If noone is interacting with you without digits, you need to find more valuable things to say. You are nothing but what you say.
how long do i need to lurk
I never replied, let lone start a thread, for almost four years of lurking. If you feel the need to whine about it like this then it's painfully obvious you need to lurk more. Don't base your happiness/sadness/self worth on how often people interact with you. Quality over quantity m8. The reason Sup Forums is so shit is because people so many people want quantity. they want to feel popular, important, wanted, but they never provide anything of value that could ever be desired by someone else.

tl;dr
If you want to feel valuable to others, produce something of value.

One of the best ways to learn is to attempt teaching. If forces you to educate yourself so that you can educate others.
And maybe while doing so you fail at times and what you say is wrong or you make a mistake. It forces you try and get better next time.
It's very possible to learn and teach at the same time.

Going off of this, lack of a (You) doesn't necessarily mean nobody is reading your post. You don't have to get dozens of replies for your voice to be heard. If you do just want interaction look for a general thread geared towards your interests or join a small, traditional style BBS.

The 2 years of lurking is BS. You could lurk for 5 years and not know how to green-text because all you've done is lurk....and people would call you a newfag and tell you to lurk most.

I turned 18 a week before 9/11, just starting senior year, and shit fucked me up to the point that I was stealing malt liquor at lunch and drinking it in 4th period.

I started looking into conspiracies and I spent ages 19,20, and 21 looking at the various sites and message boards.

I was redpilled about:
9/11
Federal reserve
Illuminati
Satanic Catholic Church

Why the fuck should I have to lurk 2 years when I've read about this shit longer than most people on here.

Christian warrior against ACTUAL SATAN ARMY.....that was me a good 12+ years ago.

I lurked 2 months and said fuck it
