First wishing everone a verrrrrrrrry happy great New WikiTree Year, but also hope your dreams will come true in 2018!
Now................. Please do not take me wrong as I know it is meant to encourage -mabey less active/ or new members at WikiTree. But I am NOT and got this message again at MY profile. Took a little to think it over but I think I should share my feelings.............
I got in December about 700 contributions. So got the 100 badge. I do not mind. I am long enough here and do not mind what badge I get (as long as I get a badge!!!!!!!!!! :D LMAO I have more badges than I can show!!! So: Joking!!!).
Now what is bothering me and it happened before as I got a 100 hundred badge althoug I was almost at 1000 contributions but it is not my aim anymore.................. I get a message at my profile of one of the leaders and/or mentors. Meant well, I know, but it feels wrong. Maybe it is me. I am not sure but thought it good to share it anyway.
After 36554 contributions, after 15 times a 1000 badges, after 7 or 8 times a 100 badges also last month December and I worked hard on profiles of others and I love that, so I really do not mind what badge I get. If I had saved more times at profiles I m sure I had the 1000 badge. But it is not important to me as I am long enough here!
But for the second time this message at my profile in this form is enough............... Again I know it is meant well and copied and paste to all that got "just" a 100 badge, taking lots of boring time to do........ But after I received a 100 badge at "almost" 1000 contributions - and again - I DO NOT MIND- But I do mind the message I received at my profile again
: "Whatever the quantity of your contributions, they all count. As I always say "Quality is better than quantity" to make a great family tree."
Meant well. But meaning I did not accomplish the expectasion?????? Posted at the wrong profile. It just feels wrong at a loyal, dedicated and expierenced WikiTreeer. We ALLLLLLLLL knowing what WikiTree wants to work on quality and never on quantity. WTH!!! I feel just disappointed by the - I know well meant -message............... maybe it is the sender........ I once jumped into the group to give all........ So took time to think that over. But it is not. Yes it is also because I was once short a member of his group and obvios forgot I am a loyal WT-er.
Need sleep and not sure I will give all I do to WT anymore as long as I get this kind of messages even from a Leader even MENTOR that had me once under his wings. Not even remembering I was. Sad............
Thank you for reading.
