Heap's How to make a good thread 20 steps without getting it closed
Here is heap's making nice thread guide.
I know I'm not a moderator, but here is how to make a good appropriate thread.
1 Please don't show links from other people's threads to yours, unless it is in your siggy, that is rude!
2 Don't be rude, such as: what eva, nobody likes you, no one is coming to this thread; it stinks, your house is crudier than a garbage dump, And don't retaliate. Well, infact, I get angry when people say stuff like that too, so flag as soon as possible. Saying shut up! or get a life! or you are a brat to retaliate could cause a mod to send you a message. The best thing is report.
4 Cussing is not allowed, and don't use any of these symbols to replace them: !@#$%^&*()-_+=`~ :cussing belongs in the trash! If you see something like ***** (blocked) report it.
5 Don't scam, if you on ebay, and other sites in the real world, that is illegal, and you can be charged with fraud. How will you feel if someone did that to you? Who knows, what if someone was trading that item for a gift in webkinz world?
6 it is okay to put religeous or cultural stuff in your thread, but don't go against another persons beliefs
7 don't ignore people and act like they are stuipid, because we all have feelings.
8 Red, & Blue are reserved for Mods, Global Mods, and Admins, remember not to confuse people.(green is for Gift Gurus).
(actually, Gift Gurus names are in green but that color is not reserved for them to use when posting. -fairlyoddmom)
9 be a cop, report anything you think is wrong like being to personal, cussing, just about anything you think is doesn't belong here, a.k.a. garbage! Mods will do the rest by taking out the garbage and sending a message, so just report those "trash talkies".
10 Don't get too personal, here is an example: I am an 11 year old who lives on lala land city, 1234 twinkle street, call me! (not everyone online is nice, and non abusive, you don't know if a 10 year old girl could be a 45 year old man) This is what will happen when you add the info I'm *edited* years old and call me.
11 Just because your jeleous, does'nt mean you should drive people away from houses, contests, stylish webbies, and polls.
12 Write clearly. I don't know why they did this, but they put yellow, tell me, which can you read better? Hi, I'm Joe, and I love my webkinz. Hi, I'm Joe, and I love my webkinz. See the difference?
13 Don't spam. Yes, if you are impatient for a pole, don't start a conversation, and if you are up set, don't hold down the pppppppppppp button, and don't say random stuff like: I like pie! In a thread, you know that will make the person mad. That also includes changing the subject like saying in a help thread: I had pizza and cheerios, or do you like basketball:those belong in the open mike, not help thread. And try not to bump. To tell you the truth, I have bumped, but it gets annoying, and try to limit your bumping, and don't post future pictures. Ganz can close a site with W-Shop Live, or Lab Wallpaper.
14 Don't talk like you are an AIM, it is very confusing and unclear, use be right back instead of brb, try to use less lols, ect., and don't use them to hide cusswords, and personal info. lol syl8tr hp t hps!
15 Don't use foreign languages to get away with cussing or personal info, yes, I am not saying you can't say the occasional hola' instead of hello, but this is a mainly english speaking sight, and most people can't understand it. Never mind, I'd like to thank Justin for making WI multi lingual, but still don't say bad words in foreign languages.
16, DON"T SHOUT!!!!!! DOING ALL CAPS AND EXCLAMATIONS ARE LIKE SHOUTING!!!! PLEASE DON"T DO THIS!!!
17 Don't beg, no one likes a pest, so don't ask for rep points, items, ect. Please please please please please please please I will do any thing please will you not be mean, or spam when someone says no.
18 Don't start a thread that you never go to, that will be boring, and eventually get closed.
19 Don't acuse anyone of being a lier, just say you disagree, because Justin, Our Founder wrote a thread that he was sick of people being named liar, and said that you might even get banned if you say people are liars. Just say that you are unsure, or disagree, don't accuse people of lying. And don't cheat, you can get banned for it.
And finnaly, don't trash talk! Yes we all have feelings, and if you are feelingjeleous, grumpy,upset, tired, sad, angry, or so BALISTIC THAT YOU WANT TO THROW YOUR COMPUTER ACROSS THE ROOM! Don't release your anger on others, pretend other members are best friends, or closest family, words can hurt more than physical damage, if you use them correctly, people might even be friends, and add you. Just remember that we all have feelings!
(Here is a note that a few members asked about why their threads get closed, "if no one sees a thread for a while, it will get closed")
