Hello members of WI! I have seen the folowing problem so many times. What is the problem you ask? It is the problem that members come up to someone and sends them a friend request without talking to them at all! This is wrong! Please, please do not do this! Simply PM or profile message this person, asking them to be friends with you! Please do not just come-up and ask! Introduce yourself!

I don't really think so. Maybe they like your outfit, the way you're helping other people, maybe they are just lonely. It doesn't make it 'wrong' to ask!

I agree, and disagree.

AGREE:
Yeah, it's like walking up to someone and saying,"Be my friend."

DISSAGREE:
Sometimes, I feel more comfortable 'breaking the ice' when they're already my friend. Otherwise, I feel like I'm speaking to a stranger.

i DISAGREE! WHY? because when they post to you on a thread you sort of find out a bit about how they think...

Funny - I also agree with BOTH. If you get the 'unknown' friend request, it does come as a surprise.

But like the quote above, you can get a feel about someone by how they write and share their opinions. And many times, the current thread isn't the best place to start having your own long and drawn-out personal conversation. Just little ones...(Nice job - KC!)

I think the original message intention is good - use the Friend Request am PMs appropriately - not just to add a bunch of friends that you will never talk or write to, but for people you intend to keep up with.

I'm sorry, MurphyDog, but I don't agree. When I receive a friendship request out of the blue, I consider it a compliment. I always accept. The person who wants to be my friend must have seen something that I did or wrote, and liked it. It's very flattering (you do mean here on Webkinz Insiders, do you? on WW it's a different kettle of fish) In fact I'd rather not clutter up my PM mailbox. If they ask through a PM or with the ready-made form, what's the difference?

I AGREE with you. Like some people just add me when I have never seen them or heard of them. Then I decline them and they say, "plas eplease please be my friend", and I don't know who they are!

Exactly how I feel. I don't mind you asking me, as long as you just introduce yourself.
And IF I say no, don't get mad! I have a right to say no.
