Default Come on, WI. We can try harder than this.

Lately, I have been seeing a lot of spams, rudeness, and things that just don't belong. I made this guide to try to stop these problems.

1. Rudeness.
Rudeness hurts people's feelings. When just a single person types something bad, that person's feelings are hurt and the person feels like THEY did something wrong, rather than the other way around. It can close threads, or even get them deleted for fighting from one person's bad comment. Let's take this situation. Consider yourself in someone else's shoes. You've just gotten a brand-new charcoal cat webkinz and have been searching for it for a very long time. You're so excited that you post a thread on here about it. You label the thread as "New webkinz!!"
And let's say these are the comments:
1st comment
Wow, congratulations! I love cats. You're so lucky! I hope you have fun!
This is a great comment. This person was not rude.
2nd comment
Wow. Cool. Awesome!!
A good comment. Needs a bit of work.
3rd comment
Uh, cool. I guess. But the charcoal cat isn't new! and I hate cats. I have 200 webkinz. Big deal!
This is not a good comment. This shows rudeness.
4th comment
Boring! I dont care. Cats stink! lol lol thats you cuz you bought a dumbo catz!
Terrible comment. This is not only rude, but it's like a spam. A very bad spam.
Hopefully, this has showed you that rudeness is not good. Think before you type!


2.Spamming
Spamming is just plain wrong. It can mess up a thread. Sure, it's a good way to get posts, but did you ever realize it's also a great way to make people angry at you? Like rudeness, it can close or delete threads. Here's an example of spam. This is the thread: "Do you like the Jonas Bros?" And here's what the person posted on it as the prepost.(the first post)
Do you like the Jonas Brothers? I do! I love Joe....please vote!!!

1st comment:
Sure! They are soo cool. Rock on, Jo Bros!
Perfect, non-spam comment.

2nd comment:
wut who are they whatevs! they soundz like cool peeps.... who arethey!!!!!!!!!
spam. when a person just posts like this, with spelling and grammatical errors, they just mess things up.

3rd comment:
hi im maddie who are you thiz forom is kwel!!!!!! lol lol!!!!!!!!!
this is a definite spam. When this happens, report the person for spam.
TRY NOT TO SPAM! MAKE WI AN EVEN BETTER PLACE!!!!


3. Spelling and Grammar.

Try to spell correctly. It helps things to be read easily. Grammar helps things to look better, too. Let's figure out what's wrong with this post:

Hy I m maddie wuts up!!! I likes cheeze do u!!??? wowwy......coooool postiez!
If this post had been correct, it would have turned out like this.
Hi! I am Maddie. What's up? I like cheese. Do you? Wowwie! Cool posts!

SO, PLEASE TRY TO SPELL AND USE GRAMMAR CORRECTLY!


I hope you found this guide helpful!

Well.. before I left and didn't come back for a while... this was the reason. People were being rude, and inconsiderate, and spamming. And it's not nice.

You did an exellent job writing this! I hope some people will understand!

It's great to be back,

You did a FAB job of writing that, but all that is basically in the rules, but thanks for refreshing our memories! :] Even though I just read it in the rules 2 days ago, lol!

Yes, I do agree with that. It doesn't matter so much, I'm just really big on punctuation and grammar and all that good stuff. Thanks for the rep!
