I know what you're talking about. Even if the person made the thread/post WAY after the fact, be polite about it. Instead of saying, "Ya...that was kind of in the news like...hmmm...a month ago!" or "Ya! Where have you been?" say something like, "Oh ya. I saw that too! I think it was confirmed that (whatever) will happen!"
I recently saw a thread about (or something like it), "GANZ made a Croc and Floral Fox??" when I was just a visitor here, and a lot of people were answering rude things. Then there were a couple posts saying things like, "Ya they did! I was so excited! I have them both! They're so cute! "

I completely agree with you to many people are quick to put someone down or point out there mistakes. If you can't say something to someone and be nice about it don't say anything at all, and if you only live to find the mistakes in others it might be time to find a new hobby!!!

I really agree with you. That's so rude to just go up to someone and just trash them like that. EVERYONE just remember don't let it bother you. Let it go and say to yourself: " Well, that person just doesn't know how to act nice."

Golden Rule : Treat others how you would want to be Treated
Indeed. Flip it around and put yourself in the other person's position. Would you want them to say it to you? If not, it isn't worth printing.
I have three rules that I follow on this.
#1) Is it going to help the contributor
#2) Is it going to help others
#3) Is it important enough to be said
If I have to answer NO to any of those, chances are, it isn't worth writing.
Fairlyoddmom has said it often enough in many of the comments that she has edited, 'If you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all.' AND also, if it is offensive, do not hesitate to press the red flag The moderators are sensitive enough to dispatch 'personal attacks' like that very quickly

That is true. I have seen that on many threads. I think that a "What is it?" thread/category would be great!

I think everyone has thought they discovered something new at one point or another. I've done it myself a couple of times and found out it was old news. Well, it was new to me obviously. Fortunately, I haven't had anyone be cruel about my mistake.

Also, yesterday I noticed a lot of threads about new floating ribbons. This is very old news for most of us, but for that person it was new and very exciting. Don't you remember the first time you got a POTM chocolate? So just say something like, "isn't that wonderful? I love the ribbons too. They come on the 1st and the 15th of the month" This way you've given them more info on it and also agreed with their post instead of embarassing them.

Yes, people are thoughtless. Always remember to look at the time a thread was made before saying something and NEVER say it in a rude way.

Hey, can you not use lime? It's really hard to read for me, and I can imagine our older users have trouble too. Thanks!
