I agree with you. Sometimes I see people on the DCT ignore people because they might be new or only have 200-300 posts. It doesn't matter at all! Wether you have 10 posts or 10,000 posts... what really matters is the person's personality. And I kind of agree how you said that people like GG's, Mods, and Admids are treated different by WI members because it is true in some cases. I guess some people might find someone with a "Green Name" or "Purple Name" more powerful than others. And Rep Boxes? Most of the time I barely even notice them And the stars really have nothing to do with the person's personality, it just indicates how many times they've posted. And I really hope that people don't judge each other by the WAY they post. I'm not the best speller And half the time I get off track while posting... And it doesn't matter if you post 2 sentances or 2 paragraphs everytime you post, sometimes it just takes more sentances to explain some things.

Rep to you for posting this! (:

I agree! Although I love the stars and speeches, like you said, they shouldn't seperate members.

Agreed. I think that more...'popular' people, known to WI get a lot of respect than someone that joined like a week ago and has learning to do. It shouldn't matter if you're a lil' kinz, or a Gift Guru, if you have 1 rep. box or 5,...if you have 60 posts and the next person has 3,000, (well I think you get my point) everybody should be respected equally, and everybody on this site has the same 'popularity' and rights.

Although Mods and Admins. are more powerful, they do need a tad more respect. But the only advantage to being a GG is like 2 things. (I can not say because I will get in trouble). But they are not huge things that you should be honored for.
I agree with being judged by the way a person posts.
Like SCB said, "Quality, not Quantity"

You guys are driving me crazy with these reputation points, but I appreciate it.

Ooh, I love the way you put that! You really do have a great point! In my opinion, I'd agree with you... it wouldn't be worth it (to me) to have a spinny star full of spam and only have about 2 helpful posts. It would be more forfilling to me to not have a spinny, but have most of my posts helpful. It makes me happy to know that my post is helping a WI member

The thing is take away the stars an people will still treat people the same way. Taking the stars away will not change the attitude of the type of person who whould intentionally leave someone out because they do not see them as 'worthy.'

I'm not trying to be argumentative, or difficult, but I have never experienced this type of behaviour on WI

It's not the stars that seperates members, it is the members themselves.

This is one of the most true posts I have ever seen, it dosen't matter if you have about 100, 000 posts or 3 posts, every member helps to make WI a great place, no member should be treated differently because of their rank, post count, or rep, behind the computer, the person with no rep boxes, friends, and few posts, may be the same as the person with tons of spinnies, trades, thousands of friends, and gold rep boxes, the point is, everyone here on WI makes it a better place, and NO ONE should be disrespected.

I am glad you are here to post
I am happy you have not experienced this behavior. I have been blocked out and ignored. It is not fun, and it hurts.

Greatly said (:
I am friends with many people here. I am good friends with people with few posts and boxes, as well as people with 15,000+ people with 6 boxes.
Just because they have different numbers, I do not treat them differently.

Here's me edit, we had to leave for a bit

I think everyoe's the same. All of my 5,ooo+ posts coupld be from roleplays, welcomes, and happy birthday's. However, a new member with about 100 posts, each one of those posts coupld be CHOCK FULL of helpfulness and niceness. Sometimes people see a 'big member''s post and get hung up [like, as in that's all they see] on the rep/post/giftz numbers, and they don't see the TRUE information in the post.

I try to be as polite to a lil kinz as I am to an admin. I enjoy my stars, I only post on threads that I think are interesting, so I'm not a spammer, so ehrn I see the number of stars I have I see that as me being a productive member of the WI community.

I am very sorry that so many people have been treated in this way. As long as you keep doing the right thing you will come out on top as the better person.
