But it would be bad sportsmanship about whining your thread didn't win. I really hope they do it, Mia

Default Re: Best Thread Of The Month

I think people's feelings would get hurt by this. People might have a really awesome thread and then they don't get Best Thread and then it makes them feel really bad. Also, if people write stories or do a Meet My Webkinz Family thread, they might discontinue writing it because they feel really bad about it. But it's a good idea!

Default Re: Best Thread Of The Month

Hi! I didn't have time to read everyone's replies, but I too thought, "What if someone's feelings got hurt?" But really, there can only be one winner. Out of a huge number of threads that are created each month, it is really impossible to get THAT hurt. I make lots of polls but know that they probably wouldn't win or even be nominated to win.

Don't you wonder what life would be like if there was never competition? I play games but it is not just to win! I sometimes get caught up in trying to win but then have to stop myself. I really care about my friends more than winning a game that I will forget about in a month or year or whatever. You get the idea...

How can we recognize people for their good work if they never win an award or receive a gift for their work? I think if there are hundreds of threads, we could get a plan to choose from all the threads say for this month. We could choose the top 10 threads with the most visits and vote for our favorite of the top 10 popular threads. We could choose the top 10 threads which had rep or individual posts and do the same thing. We could choose different categories. I can't see how anyone will get their feelings hurt out of all those threads and then narrow it down to 10. (I don't mean to be insulting, but maybe it is just whining at this point...)

The poll does not have to be a public poll. Then no one will know how many votes everyone else had! All we will find out is who won! We won't know anything else. I think that would be a fair way to do it to keep people from being hurt by not getting votes! I hope you can understand me. I don't know how to say it.

The idea should really be thought about, because it is a good idea! Otherwise, we wouldn't have contests at WI or WW. Do the people who don't win get their feelings hurt? I don't. I hope to win but don't expect to. It's just for fun. I'm happy for the others who do win.

I really think this is a good idea and should not be thrown out because someone is afraid that someone will get mad or cry over not winning. Don't you think that is something we have to get over for the rest of our lives? That's my opinion!

Default Re: Best Thread Of The Month

While I like the concept, I think it may get confusing or hurtful. For instance, a lot of people would compete for Best Thread, and it could turn into what the rep and post count have turned into, if you didn't win thread of the month, you may looked down upon ( this would be over time ). Also, it couldbe hurtful if no one got votes ( like other people said before). Another problem could be the voting process. People may convince friends to vote for their thread, and if they have a lot of friends, it may not be the best thread, but the thread with the most friends.

What about another way to recongnize great threads? I am drawing a blank but what if the mods voted each month, one for each section ( except for things like hi i'm joe section... ) instead of us?

OMG, you're so right. The people who get hurt and didn't win would probably be bad sports. It would be like whining. And you know what? Whenever WI hosts a contest, someone's bound to be hurt. But they soon get over it. (Hopefully) And think of the chances of you winning. Small. I'd be really surprised if I did win, or at least get nominated. The feeling of you getting nominated is still good. (:

I think this could be a fun way to recognize some of our favorite threads, however it would also be a lot of additional work for the staff to try and do it monthly, perhaps it would be better to have a nominee on a monthly basis then have a yearly winner from those nominees.
