Which is why the new member will begin to recieve rep and soon have as much rep as Jake or Lilypad.

I agree, but the stars make us proud and make ppl impressed but some irresponsible ppl treat the rainbow/spinny or even admin/mod/(of course)founders/GG differently.

That's def. correct. And a magazine is a big job! I'll have to come check it out. Especially if people like it [and I know people do, even if it's only a few] that means you have some people that enjoy your work. And that, to me, makes you important because I've always been a big person on writing and RPing You'll get accepted soon enough in the GT program, don't worry. You're always so helpful and sweet to everyone

You deserve and have truly earned rep for this wonderful post. Rep point to you.

Oh! And I have to add that:

If you are a new member and you think it won't matter if you aren't "a somebody", being a GG with rainbows isn't the answer. I have still had times where I practically talk to myself on the DCT, while the other posts swirl around me. So don't think that gaining that status is ultimate "somebody" because they are times where it's not. Just be yourself and take your time posting.
Yep, it took me a while too to gt my rainbows. I was excite,d because I <3 rainbows, but it wore off I now think it's unimportant, it just matters how nice you were or who you helped in your post

I would definately still be apart of .

But I do like the stars because they make you feel better about your posts and it always makes you want to accomplish more. Just like rep points. You just feel better about yourself for getting that.

No one should be seperated in social groups because of Reps, Posts, Stars, or Avatars. Everyone should be treated equally. WI is a place to talk about Webkinz and to make friends!

My only advice to anyone is just be nice if you want friends! You don't need to prove anything!!! Just be yourself and i'm sure you'll get where you want to be. Never be afraid to be yourself. I'm open to anyone to be friends and i'm sure nearly EVERYONE here would love to have you as a friend.


Have an Edwardlicious day!

I like how Gemini stated it...
You feel accomplished. You didn't cheat, and you worked hard to obtain your status. It took me over a year to become a GG, and over a year to get my (soon) Second Spinny, but that doesn't mean I am popular, and people shouldn't have to respect me more than a Lil' Kinz.

Wasn't two days ago Martin Luther King Day? He wanted everyone to be treated equally, and we should live by that rule.

I know what you mean, I never look at what kind of stars people have when I talk to them, it's not about posts. Anyone can have a lot of posts, but it doesn't mean they are helpful. Posts are just a number, they shouldn't determine popularity. Everyone is equal here, it isn't school where you have different groups. Rep boxes are just a sign that someone is helpful, and that's all. If people are going to talk to someone just because of them having a lot of posts, that's kind of mean, and they are missing out on what you could be an amazing friendship. After all, at one time we all had a grey rep box and only a few posts. REP to you for this great thread (:

Even if I don't have spinny stars or have a lot of rep boxes, people still talk to me! I also post on people's profile pages regardless of their stats. However, I do agree that some people "discriminate" against people who don't have many stars/rep boxes.
