Default Manners and other general reminders

WI has some problems with manners I've noticed. Some suggestions:

-When somebody makes a thread about their 4th pet, don't be rude and say:

"UGH! You only have 3? I have 146...."
Be nice. Congradulate them.

-When somebody says "I like your new avvie!" Say thanks. It's polite. They gave you a nice compliment and return the favor by thanking them.

-When making a thread, or posting in general, if you are asking WI members if they have a panda, don't say
"Do YOU have a panda?"
That makes people feel like you are upin their face, screaming "YOU!" And poking them. It's rude.
Simply say:
"Do you have a panda?"
It's much more polite.

-Please, if somebody spams, or does something wrong, don't say

"SO AND SO! NO SPAMMING IS ALOUD! Gosh does it hurt to follow rules?"

That's not nice and makes the person feel worse. Simply just say:

"So and so, please don't spam."

and report the post.

-Don't use capitals all the time, it scares people.

-Please don't use
!!!!!!
It is too hard to read and frustrates people.

-(Courtasy of kajita[thanks]) Don't reply things in help section like:
"Hmm, I don't know."
It's frustrating for the people who need help.

-(Courtasy of Lyssa [thanks]) Don't use text talk. (ex: r u going 2 da game 2nite? LOL ROFL itz gonna rox)
One, it's spam
Two, it makes your posts 'fluff'
and Three, some people might not be able to read it. There are young members on here too.

- if someone says something you don't agree with, you don't need to reply rudely:
"You're SO SO SO WRONG!!" "That's NOT what happened!" "You don't know what you're talking about!"
Keep it civil! You can say something like: "I don't agree with you because..." "I don't think that's what happened." "Where did you hear that information?
If someone asks you to look at something they made, like a website, a drawing, a room, whatever, and you don't like it, don't be rude!
"Ummm...I hate that." "That's really dumb." "I don't like that at all!"
If you don't like it, you don't have to say anything. If you have to say something, try to be constructive, not negative: "Your website is a little difficult for me to navigate. Maybe you can change the layout." "You might want to move X in your room to make more space and open it up a bit."
And finally, if you are asking for help (in the somebody help section, with designing a room or a general question), don't post every two minutes asking someone to help! People do have lives outside of WI, and some people only have certain times they can use the computer. Try to relax and be patient. It's especially annoying when someone posts every 45 seconds saying "WHY WON'T ANYONE HELP ME". Hang in there, someone will answer you.
[thanks crasht]




Thanks all!

I like what you said about the

Do YOU have a panda." I've never really been fond of the times where that happens.

I completely agree with this. I cannot read anything written in these colors. I wish they would remove them as options.

In addition to the above hints, I would like to add - if you don't know how to help someone, please don't post I don't know. Just don't post at all if you have nothing to say. Thanks!
