I discovered Everything2 yesterday. I contributed my first node about NHL Player Nicknames, just to get started. Not an epic work, but something that was missing from this project. It was neat seeing something I wrote added to this massive collection.
I then added a little writeup to a list of (fake) bottom 20 children's books, just because I thought they would be funny.
I wake up this morning and see that my original work was given a rep of 2, but my second piece was given a rep of -2. So I'm currently floating by on 2 XP.
Oh well. I wish the people who voted negative would send me an email and tell me why. I don't want to be an XP whore, but I'd like to be able to contribute.
Then again, maybe they already have and I don't know how to see their comments.
