Thanks Dixiecup for speaking up!!! I can't say that I've had anyone be rude to me yet at WI. However, I don't do much posting because I'm not really sure of what I'm doing or what the difference is between a thread and a post. I've been reluctant to ask questions, knowing that my answers are most likely already posted somewhere and I just need to find them. It's been a bit of a challenge. It's good to know that there are kind Insiders out there who won't look down on us Newcomers or not so computer savvy grannies. So thanks again and have a great day!!!

A question is never 'stupid'. At one time or the other we all had them, so it's the best way to keep learning. That's what makes this site such a great place to visit! Sometime a new person's question reminds us of something we may have forgotten. There's always the time where even some of us 'older' WI-ers learn something new!!!

Please post away, start a new thread with interesting news, share your excitement... questions may have been asked and answered elsewhere but WI is like a huge revolving set of doors. People are always coming and going. Newcomers bring new ideas and different perspectives. It may take a while to get the hang of it here, but there are ALWAYS people willing to lend a helping hand!

Welcome to you all!

Excellent post, I have probably been guilty of this. I know practically the same thing drove me away from WI for a week when I was a new member. I am the type of person who loves to correct people, so I usually put a so they know I'm not saying it in a "Follow the rules or you'll be banned for eternity kind!" of way.

'In your face' attitudes chases them away or makes them shy to contribute and I really would hate to see a lost opportunity. Who knows; that person you barked at for using Moderator Blue ink for their first post might actually have the solution to an unsolved recipe. OR what if that person has technical knowledge and they can help people to gain access to a 'fussy' account? What about losing a kind, compassionate contributor (Say; like Gingerly when she first began). Wouldn't it be awful to have never known her because someone was unecessarily blunt or impatient?
Please, remember they are new and are not familiar with the Forum as we are. Some of the questions they have can't be answered through the FAQ and the RULES under the big daisy, or any other way but through hands on experience. That is what we are HERE for, to guide people through the process and be open to newcomers. Please remember the Golden Rule, 'Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.'
Like most people I don't mind constructive criticism and look forward to being guided in how to be a contributing member of this forum. I appreciate your words of encouragement and look forward to learning from those who have been around for a while. This is my first forum to ever join and so far it has been absolutely wonderful! Thanks again!!

Kayembee is right, there are NO stupid questions. Those questions can be asked again and again, it doesn't even hurt us to refresh our memories. I am SO GLAD you found Webkinz Insider, too! We are really a GOOD bunch of people and we are over 100,000 strong. It is a huge global village and we are here for each other. If you want some answers, just press on a person's name and a drop down menu should allow you to go to their profile. There you can post questions. A lot of our veteran Contributors can answer them, or if you see someone with a Blue title or a Red title, they are our WONDERFUL Moderators and Administrators, you can leave a message on their profile and they will be HAPPY to help.

Welcome to Webkinz Insider!! Try your introductory post in the Hi I am Joe category so that we can greet you formally and get to know a bit about YOUR addiction Take a ride on the Whimzy's Wings and you should be where you need to post. Look for a sign that says [New Topic]

You can ask me ANY TIME at all. There are many others here that would be available at the drop of a hat! Just pop on over and ask away, if I can't answer it, I will find someone who can!

Thanks, dixiecup! I'm glad that people are willing to help when I have a "stupid," already-been-asked question. Sometimes reading something like an FAQ section doesn't always help. Having other people chime in with an answer, in their own words and opinions, is sometimes better!

Hey, sweetnspicy, I always seem to run into you somewhere! I always recognize you by your avvie --- the U2 song "Lemon" starts playing in my head!!!

hello and welcome to WI. this is a fantastic site. everyone here is so helpful. if you have questions feel free to ask me or anyone else on this site. you can also check out the FAQ and RULES section, you will find a link to them located under the daisy at the top of the page. when i was just starting (im still a bit "green") i was afraid to post and ask questions, please dont be afraid to ask anything or give your opinion. i thought my questions seemed a bit "childish" but in a way i was a "child" on this site. i have learned some new things by asking people my little questions (how do you upload an avatar pic, how do you PM etc.). just like children you can only learn by asking questions (the only "stupid" question is the question unasked ) im now a "toddler" as far as this site goes lol. my point (i rant ) is dont be afraid to ask even the simplest of questions, its the only way you will learn and grow . again welcome to this fantastic site

ohh yeah props for this thread. i know if people had been "mean" to me i would have left the site or just kept my mouth shut and stop asking questions.
