I was just wondering if there are bees out there who will randomly comment on a post just to make their bee status go up? Like, commenting on something you don’t even have an opinion on, care about or are not knowledgeable about. Or finding posts that require no thought and little typing such as “looks great”. I’m not judging what-so-ever, I’m just interested to see how many bees like this are out there.

Those people are pretty easy to spot…they exist, but I wonder if anyone would own up to it? I know when I first joined I definitely did it to get out of newbee status…I wanted to be more credible, LOL. But the higher my count, meh, I’m kind of not competative enough to post 50 times a day just to see a new bee level. I kinda like the one I have!

Nope, I never really thought of that! I know that there are definitely people that do it, but like MightySapphire said, I doubt they’d fess up

I only post to threads that I actually have input for – if I really like someone’s dress/hair/flowers, whatever, I’ll say so – if not, I don’t write anything. Sometimes there’s already been so many responses to a problem, any point I’d make has already been said. I didn’t even realize I was a “bumble bee” until the color of my posts had changed.

Sometimes I do just post “That’s pretty” or something but only on posts where people are looking for that kind of response and I do actually think it’s pretty. I like to think I’m earning my bee ranking, what little of it there is. haha

I’ll cop to having a Bee lvel goal, but I don’t make random comments just to up my postcount.

I honestly don’t care about bee status one bit. I just comment if I want to comment. 🙂

I think I did that a little bit at first just so my numbers went up right away and I didn’t seem like such a newbee. But now, I only comment if I have something to say or if someone asks for an opinion and I genuinely do like it.

Commenting just to comment no. Sometimes short comments are all that’s needed anyway. If they ask if you like their dress or something you don’t always have to leave a long drawn on response, unless it’s warranted. It’s not really a competition on here for statuses…..is it? LOL It’s exciting to see the rankings go up, but it’s hard to notice when they have until the color changes or you scroll past a comment you’ve made and see that it has. You know that you haev helped someone, because Lord knows….this site has helped me:)

I comment when I actually have something to say for the most part but I also post Very pretty or cute on posts when people want feedback because that is what they are looking for and I do mean it.
When I post pics of my dress, invites etc. I want people to give me their opinion and so I give my opinion to other’s even if it is short and sweet!
There are also many posts that I read and then don’t post on it at all because I genuinely have nothing to say or nothing nice to say! 😉
But I don’t post for the sake of posting!

Sometimes I’ll post little comments if something is a good idea or cute… but only because I truly admire it! I’ve been a honey bee for (what feels like) a million years now, so it would be nice to move up a level. However, I’m going to earn it 🙂
Lately I’m doing a lot more reading than posting though…

I post things I genuinely feel. If I write a one or two word post it’s cuz that’s how I was feeling. I tend to stay away from things I feel I can’t contribute to. However, somedays I just have more time to dedicate to the bee so my post count for the day may be a bit higher on those days. I used be on the top of the daily post count quite frequently but now with my wedding less than 3 months away I haven’t really had much time. So you don’t see me as often as before.

I don’t really care about the bee levels. I usually skim through the title of posts to see if it interests me. Sometimes I’ll read and not even post because I have nothing to add.
I try to find posts that no one else or a few have commented on to comment on those posts. Just to spread the love.

This is funny. I’ve been buzzing around the hive for a couple of years now, and even though i registered a good 15 months ago, my post count makes it clear that I’m not one of these. Maybe I should be? I’d like a green box more thank I’d like the title 😉

Most of the time, I don’t realize that I have hit a new level until I am giving CONGRATS to posts where other Bees are mentioning their new levels. That’s usually when I take a peek at my number.
Like many others have said, I post when I have something to add or genuinely like/dislike something to express my opinion.
