Arrow Tips, reminders, and info about the different usergroups for WI members! Updated 7/15. Over 20 tips and reminders!

Hey everyone. Here are some friendly reminders.


1. Don't post in light colors like this: SAMPLE - It's really hard to read.

2. Don't give out personal information like pictures of yourself - It's not safe!

3. Don't be rude - It's not nice.

4. Don't make duplicate threads - Look around to see if there is already a thread about it.

5. Don't write in all CAPS - Like this: "HI EVERYONE!! WHAT'S UP?!!!!!!" It's considered "Cyber Yelling".

6. Don't give out randoms REPS or participate in "REP fests" - They are not allowed, and will not be tolerated.

7. Don't make "fluff" posts - They will be deleted if found unnecessary.

8. Don't post like this: "cul8r!!" (See you later) - They are not needed.

9. Don't post in this red or this blue - I see it very often, and it's not allowed because the Mods and Admins use it. You can write in these colors: Dark Red, Dark Blue, Pink, Light Blue, etc...

10. Don't rate threads bad just because you don't like what they say - It's not very nice, and the thread owner most likely worked very hard on it.

11. Don't post just so your post count goes up - It doesn't work that way.

12. Don't over use the smilies like this: "Hey everyone!!!!!! " - That's not very good to do and it's annoying.

13. Don't drag posts on like this: "I know you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" - Again, it's not right and annoying.

14. Don't make quick moving animated backgrounds and stuff - It hurts the eyes.

15. Don't beg people to come to threads. You may tell them, but if they so no, they don't want to come to it.

16. Don't advertise that you'll give REPS to people if they post - That's against the rules.

It would be a good thing to consider several things when rating a thread. A person should include the following:

* content
* helfulness
* information
* importance
* organization
* presentation
* creativity
* agreement
* does it contribute to good community
* and many other things

Will your rating encourage a better thread or turn others away? I think comments are the most productive in creating better threads.

A thread you don't like does not necessarily deserve a low rating. I rate threads that are not of interest to me at a 5 sometimes just because I feel like they worked hard, had a good presentation, it may be helpful to others, and it was a good idea. I may never return to the thread, but I appreciate the work a person puts into making this a good community.

I say this as a mom who feels age will play into things as well. I think it's important to be considerate of others when rating as well as always encouraging and promoting one another.

Thank you for your input! It will help people make better threads!

20. Don't go, "YAY!!! First post!!! " on threads unless it's the DCT.

21. No scamming - It's against the WI rules.

22. No chain PMs - Against the WI rules.

23. Explore the forum - Go talk with other members!

25. Don't pass out a lot of REP, even though it's ok too. It could get you into trouble. Pass it out only when it's worth it.


26. Have fun!!

I'm going to be sorting some stuff for:

Lil Kinz (New members with less than 10 posts)

Webkinz (Members with more than 10 posts)

Gift Trainees (Gifted members in training)

Gifted (Gifted members with no training left)

Gift Gurus (Members who qualified to become a Gift Guru)

So everyone knows what they CAN'T do.

*****************************************************************

Lil Kinz - You shouldn't "BUMP" your threads, along with the rules/tips posted at the top of the page.

*****************************************************************

Webkinz - The Lil Kinz tips apply to you too.

*****************************************************************

Gift Trainees - The Webkinz and Lil Kinz tips apply to you, except you can "BUMP" your Gift Exchange threads.

*****************************************************************

Gifted Members - The Gift Trainee tips apply to you.

*****************************************************************

Gift Gurus - The Gift Trainee tips apply to you, except you can trade through Private Messages.

*****************************************************************

I will be adding more soon.

Good reminders, but I disagree with the last one. The point of rating a thread is based on whether or not you thought it was a good thread.
