I wanted to thank you also, Dogluver, for the link in your sig about how to make good posts. A link to that would be a totally helpful addition to a, "Sorry, not yet!" PM about the GE. Thanks for the advice!
At first, I actually did think my dictionary was wrong, but it actually wasn't.

And thanks for the compliment! If you need any help, please let me know

Overall, I'm sure they're doing a great job, because so many people are able to participate and get a lot out of it. It must be a lot of work with no reward, so I'm really happy they're out there! I just wanted to make one suggestion....



Hello! Thanks for letting me know directly rather than just leaving it out there- that helps. It's important to pass this message on, but if I may, I'd like to offer a few suggestions about letting people know that they have been rejected. When I hear that my posts lack relevance/ content, that's a hard thing for me to hear. Is everything I say irrelevant? Are my posts totally stupid and meaningless? I hope not! How about something like,

Thanks for your application to join the Gift Exchange. We appreciate your involvement on the site and your many great posts so far, but we don't have enough Gift Coaches right now to support everyone who wants to join the Exchange. Please continue to make posts- preferably longer posts with useful information for other users- and reapply again later, when hopefully some room will have opened up.

Sorry we can't invite you to join the GE right now, but hopefully we'll be able to soon! Thanks again for your interest and for being involved on WI. Take care!

* * *

Other suggestions about the kinds of posts that you're looking for would be great, too, so I know that I'm not writing "fluff" posts when I do post.

WI is such a great, supportive environment that it was surprising to get such a harshly worded message- coming from the HAL 9000 eye, no less! I hope that the same caring and sensitivity that I see throughout WI will also be the style used by the admins as well.

Thanks again for your time!
That's a good suggestion, but I got that message too, and by irrelevant, their saying that you should post about Webkinz and contribute to the website as a whole instead of a few forums. Don't take it harshly, it's actually more like trying to help you by telling you what you should do. Mine said pretty much just that, and although being rejected was hard, I don't think it was too harsh.

I agree, but it helps you fix what you did, actually.

While I like that they now tell you why you weren't accepted, it should be worded a little less harshly. That is a really good idea. Keep making good threads like this one, and you'll be in the GE in no time.

Thanks everyone for your support and helpful comments! I appreciate all of you, but in particular I want to tip my cap to PugsRock for some great tips.

That's super helpful, Pugs; thanks! From their message I really couldn't tell what I needed to do, but your comment helps me out. I'll try to be involved in more forums and try to focus more on talking about WW instead of just interacting with some of the many great people I've met over here on WI. I've tried to get involved in different threads here and there, whether it be people talking about personal problems or welcoming a few newcomers, but I guess I need to do more as far as talking about the game itself? I wonder if that's the secret. Anyway, thanks for pointing the way, Pugs; I appreciate it!

P.S. Pugs are my favorite dogs: someday I'm going to have one and name it, "Happy." That's my dream!

Wow, that's not very nice. The staff is working as hard as they can, but they need to calm down a bit. I agree with this thread.

Well, you must have not posted your agreement correctly or maybe you posted on the agreement thread but didn't post an agreement...? They have to delete/move SOOOO many threads that they can't sit and think of a "nice" way to save everything. Don't be offended! It wasn't ever meant to personally offend you. You used to not get posts at all when you had a post deleted...so at least this way, you get an idea of why.
