And did you know there’s a class for that? Yep! There’s a noob class for noobs like us! I attended one of these classes yesterday at 7:00 PM EST and this is how it went:
[5/7/2012 7:00:08 PM] Triberr person: how can I help?
[5/7/2012 7:00:43 PM] ME: Hi, I’m new to Triberr, so I am having trouble with sending other peoples messages out and I guess getting bones
[5/7/2012 7:01:11 PM] Triberr person: at the moment, the only way to get bones is when someone selects you for their Dynamic Tribes
[5/7/2012 7:01:22 PM] Triberr person: otherwise, you have to buy them
[5/7/2012 7:01:28 PM] ME: oh
[5/7/2012 7:01:36 PM] Triberr person: we had bunch of diff ways to earn them in the past, but thats mostly done away with
[5/7/2012 7:01:45 PM] ME: I see
[5/7/2012 7:01:53 PM] Triberr person: now, what messages are you trying to send?
[5/7/2012 7:02:33 PM] ME: Well, I am a part of two tribes and I want to make sure they are sending out my blog posts as well as I am sending out their posts. How do I check on bothof those
[5/7/2012 7:02:57 PM] Triberr person: your RSS and twitter have to be added and assigned to tribes
[5/7/2012 7:03:00 PM] Triberr person: I can check on that for you
[5/7/2012 7:03:05 PM] Triberr person: whats your twitter handle?
[5/7/2012 7:03:10 PM] ME: BlessedBklynite
[5/7/2012 7:04:55 PM] Triberr person: ok…everything looks good
[5/7/2012 7:05:00 PM] ME: Cool!
[5/7/2012 7:05:16 PM] Triberr person: as you publish new posts they will be added to your tribesmate’s tribal stream and they will be able to share it
[5/7/2012 7:05:40 PM] Triberr person: you can see the “flow” of posts as you go from your tribal stream, to Sent Stream, to My Posts
[5/7/2012 7:05:46 PM] ME: Nice, now is it just posts for a specific website or all posts? Or do they get to choose which ones?
[5/7/2012 7:05:56 PM] ME: Let me check
[5/7/2012 7:06:08 PM] Triberr person: all posts from https://mentalitylistens.wordpress.com/feed/
[5/7/2012 7:06:33 PM] Triberr person: they will see all posts from your https://mentalitylistens.wordpress.com/feed/ feed and will be able to choose which ones they want to share with their audience
[5/7/2012 7:06:40 PM] ME: Oh, i see it.
[5/7/2012 7:07:05 PM] Triberr person: they can also put you on auto, and you them, but that costs bones
[5/7/2012 7:07:10 PM] ME: Now what about when i invite someone. If they choose not to join my tribe, will I be notified?
[5/7/2012 7:07:20 PM] ME: Or will it just show pending
[5/7/2012 7:07:29 PM] Triberr person: it shows as pending unless they decline
[5/7/2012 7:07:36 PM] Triberr person: or you can pull back the invite
[5/7/2012 7:07:49 PM] ME: If you pull back the invite do you get your bones back
[5/7/2012 7:07:55 PM] Triberr person: of course
[5/7/2012 7:07:59 PM] ME: YES
[5/7/2012 7:08:01 PM] ME: LOL
[5/7/2012 7:08:13 PM] Triberr person: everything we do, we make sure it’s fair and it makes sense
[5/7/2012 7:08:18 PM] ME: whoever thought I’d want bones…LOL
[5/7/2012 7:08:21 PM] Triberr person: Im not saying we succeed all the time 🙂
[5/7/2012 7:08:27 PM] Triberr person: lol
[5/7/2012 7:08:39 PM] ME: Um, let me check the site to see if I have anything else
[5/7/2012 7:08:48 PM] Triberr person: sure…take your time
[5/7/2012 7:09:24 PM] ME: oh, bonfires! Can I make a new bonfire or is that for special tribe rulers or something, because I was trying to look for a button to start one so I can invite people to my tribe
[5/7/2012 7:09:44 PM] Triberr person: anyone can light a bonfire 🙂
[5/7/2012 7:09:47 PM] Triberr person: just like in real life
[5/7/2012 7:09:53 PM] ME: 🙂
[5/7/2012 7:10:03 PM] Triberr person: if you go to a specific category, you can lite a fire there
[5/7/2012 7:10:20 PM] ME: Oh, okay, can you walk me through?
[5/7/2012 7:10:25 PM] Triberr person: yes
[5/7/2012 7:10:29 PM] ME: Wait, does it cost bones
[5/7/2012 7:10:33 PM] Triberr person: no
[5/7/2012 7:10:40 PM] ME: 🙂
[5/7/2012 7:10:45 PM] Triberr person: click on Bonfires, then select the category on the side
[5/7/2012 7:11:24 PM] Triberr person: in your case, click on Looking for Tribes, or Looking for Tribesmates, whch ever you prefer to do at this time
[5/7/2012 7:11:34 PM] ME: ok
[5/7/2012 7:12:52 PM] ME: Okay now if I look for tribesmates, I have to invite, but if I look for tribes, then I can post for free, but each invite, which I kinda found out by accident, cost 15 bones. So you can’t just put a message out there saying you are looking for members?
[5/7/2012 7:13:37 PM] ME: I already put a message saying I was looking to join a tribe, can I put it in the same place?
[5/7/2012 7:13:46 PM] Triberr person: the best way to build a tribe is by inviting your existing online friends
[5/7/2012 7:13:56 PM] Triberr person: inviting outsiders is free
[5/7/2012 7:14:13 PM] Triberr person: and we want people to build tribes mindfully
[5/7/2012 7:14:25 PM] ME: Ooooohhhh, I was inviting friends
[5/7/2012 7:14:28 PM]Triberr person: so if you invite someone, they should know you, like you, and you them
[5/7/2012 7:14:41 PM] Triberr person: friends that are already on triberr?
[5/7/2012 7:14:48 PM] ME: Yes
[5/7/2012 7:14:54 PM] Triberr person: thats good
[5/7/2012 7:15:00 PM] ME: So, I can invite people that’s not on Triberr
[5/7/2012 7:15:08 PM] Triberr person: for sure
[5/7/2012 7:15:16 PM] Triberr person: they make for better tribesmates anyways 🙂
[5/7/2012 7:15:20 PM] Triberr person: and those invites are free
[5/7/2012 7:15:26 PM] ME: LOL, How do I do that
[5/7/2012 7:15:37 PM] Triberr person: click on Invite in the upper right corner
[5/7/2012 7:15:56 PM] ME: Oh, Nice!!!
[5/7/2012 7:16:06 PM] ME: Do you get bones? Lol
[5/7/2012 7:16:23 PM] Triberr person: no
[5/7/2012 7:16:31 PM] Triberr person: if we did that, people would invite anyone
[5/7/2012 7:16:35 PM] ME: I know, I’m just playing. LOL!
[5/7/2012 7:16:39 PM] Triberr person: 🙂
[5/7/2012 7:16:58 PM] ME: Okay, I’ll let you help someone else now, you have answered all my questions! Thank you
[5/7/2012 7:17:25 PM] Triberr person: you can always post questions inside Bonfires. Also alltriberr.com has a lot of info, and Im always here if you need me
