Wink How to stop fighting on WI!

Hi everyone!

I just think people shouldn't fight on WI. It's not fun for either person who is fighting. Here are some ways you can prevent it.

1) If someone says something that you disagree with, ignore the post or say politely that you disagree with the opinion expressed.

2) If someone says something that is rude or inapropriot, report them, don't get into an arguement. And if you flag their post, don't quote them, because if their post gets deleted so will yours.

3) Try to avoid arguements as much as possible, and if it's a thread that's a topic that you don't like (like twilight for example), don't post comments that are impolite or offensive other members or don't post at all.

4) But most of all the thing you can do to avoid arguements, is to just be polite. Arguements are usually started if someone is impolite. Everyone can express their opinion, but it should be in a nice way!

I know it's sometimes hard to take this advice (I have had troubles sometimes myself. I'm not perfect.), but it's the right thing to do and it does help! By doing this, we can make WI a fun place for everyone!

Please post your opinion!

Thanks!

Pandora

Here are some good points....

It takes a strong man to fight, but an even stronger one to walk away.

I also see people fighting and someone politely asks them to stop, but they don't stop. If you find yourself fighting, remember that there could be little kids watching and If someone asks you to stop fighting, please stop. I know how hard it it to not fight. Someone could make you mad and you want to fight with them, but please don't. I know that everyone here wants WI to be a safe place, so lets all come together and make WI a great place! Rep 4 you!

An example of this was when someone quoted something I had responded to on a thread with "Prove it!" In that case I'm pretty sure the person was trying to be mean, but I took it literally and so took out the 'personal' aspect of it, merely by quoting them and giving the proof. I didn't respond to what I figure their 'tone' probably was, just kept giving information related to that post. Each of us has a different writing style and some {mine for example} may come off as harsh or rude because I try to {mainly} give out facts only and keep the personal aspects out of it for the most part so that has to be considered when reading anyone's posting anywhere. Thankfully I am a speedreader so I tend to read things 2 or even more times if I'm not sure of the tone or the more exact meaning, in regards to how THEY meant it. Obviously we all have different experiences and interpreting things that are only in writing can be tricky sometimes.

Each stage of life brings with it its own wisdom and challenges. So what maybe be totally ok to a 40 year old would be OMG to a teenager.

Ok, not to start an argument, but this is common sense, treat others the way you want to be treated.
