Oh please, yes.

When my daughter joined WI, she was really disappointed at all the posts that welcomed her with the exact same words.

It's great to remind people to read the forum rules, but... she wanted to be welcomed as a person, too. The most meaningful posts were those that responded to her, asked her about her pets, and took a real interest in who she was.

Once a couple people have posted about reading the rules, is it really needed to have everyone else do that on your welcoming thread?

Thanks to all of you for explaing about the GE's and the thank you's. I'll just continue to give out reps and I'll reconsider the gift exchange program. And Justin, thanks for answering our questions and thanks for working so hard to make WI a fun and exciting place to visit. (Goodness knows this thread is hopping today!)

I am still reading and trying to comprehend everything this new system entails. Some of the ideas seem great!

Exactly.. I had been posting here and there in it...but i just felt that my posts were being mixed in w/ all the copy/pastes... NOT personal or welcoming AT ALL. All the threads look the same. LOL

Interesting idea Justin although I am curious to see how it all works, but right now I am confused. And I read every post on this thread!

As a fairly new user to WI, I am not so interested in my number of posts I make as with having them not appearing worthless or “stupid”. As far as Reps, I do not strive for them, but am so trilled and excited when I do receive one. This system makes me wonder if I should be even more concerned and if I am not contributing enough or at least not enough worthwhile posts.

In fact, I may be different than most, but I can see myself hesitating to respond to posts and actually cutting back.

If I understand correctly, as a Webkinz I should avoid PMs because they cost me. In other words, use them when I send private information that I do not want others to see since all is displayed on a user’s homepage? If I respond to a PM, is there a charge?

I could add more questions, but there are more and more posts, so hopefully my questions will be asked answered. If not....

I hope I can earn enough too, because that really would be nice.

What is the Insider Insider subscription class? What benefits (other than ad free) does it confer?

If it is cheap, I might just subscribe just to stop that annoying talking advertisement that SHOUTS from my computer about winning a free iPod. But I am curious to know what sort of cost would be involved, and what other benefits we could accrue from it.

I don't think I am anymore valuable than some of the lil' kinz on this forum, no matter what our numbers say.

Reputation and post count have never obsessed me. Post count is pretty meaningless... And reputation is really just another communication tool. I love seeing the comments that come when people rep one of my posts, but the actual number of green boxes that I have has never been something I really cared about.

I am just here to have fun, and to help others have fun too. I am really worried about this concept of attaching a cash value to our contributions.

Hmm
I agree. I have not signed up for message boards before specifically because they had such systems of assigning values to the numbers of posts people made. I really dislike that someone should be counted as more valuable a member of a message board just because that person posts more than another. It shouldn't be about the quantity of posts you make, but about the quality.

I also don't appreciate that it now sounds like we're restricted in how many PMs we can send, based on how many WI$ we have. Granted, it looks like I have a fair amount of WI$, but if I want to lurk and occasionally send messages to my friends, I feel like I should be allowed to do so.

Oh well, I guess this gives me a good reason to quit coming to WI!
