Wow! I recognize pretty much ALL of the usernames in this thread!!!
Who'd have thought you would all feel invisible at times?
I used to feel invisible when I first joined, but as soon as I realized that it's not usual practice to just 'acknowledge' every single post, I felt a lot better.
I do, however, try to thank every reply to the threads I start (unless I forget ) because I like people to know that I appreciate them taking the time to respond to me.
I am another who is unaware of the 'clique' that apparently exists here. Having said that though, a few months ago I did have another hubber tell me in a PM that they thought I was part of the clique. I found it quite funny as, at that point, I hadn't 'befriended' anyone properly yet
So I guess perception is a funny thing.
These days I do have a couple of hubbers on Facebook, and a fair few I like to PM regularly though
