( I'm probably way off on this )
Originality is the PERFECT word, fuzzysocks!

I will have to change the thread title, originality definitely fits better

I'm just a little disappointed that so many ideas are being repeated... over and over again. Occasionally there are original threads being made, but still, not in the majority. I have nothing against those threads- they are very nicely written. It's just that there have been so many threads about it, all the hard work kind of goes to waste, KWIM?

Thanks for posting, and you weren't off on this at all!

I agree, it has been seeming like that lately ... and maybe it was made, not for a real suggestion or reminder, but maybe for something else .......
But then again, not everybody can make those 5-star quality threads like you do, Doglover ...

And 05, that's very interesting. I have seen threads that short, or with even less purpose. Maybe, as an alternative, instead of creating a 2-sentence thread about it, they could try something else ... such as trying to find out more about it, tell one of the staff, or maybe just post it somewhere ... like the DCT?

But thanx for bringing this up, I hope the message gets across.

thanks The reason why they are always being repeated, or seems like it is because there are only so many ideas you can come up with for one topic i guess haha

Hi Maine, and thanks for posting!

I'm sorry that some of your threads were closed/deleted. Were they against the rules? Make sure that you read/understand every rule here to prevent that. Also, if you spent a long time on a thread, make sure to copy and paste it onto a Word document because your work will still be there.

Hi Catherine, and thank you for posting!

I agree, it sometimes has to do with something else. I changed the thread title to "Originality" because it suits better I admit, sometimes I don't make very original ideas, but I try to most of the time. In my opinion, if you make a similar thread to one that someone has recently made and is on the second/third page of this section, the best thing to do is to contact that person who made it and ask if you can use it. Of course, courtesy threads (the most common) have been around this section forever, and many people thought of it before. However, it's (sort of) respect to the person who made the last thread about it because people had read it and the other person doesn't feel mad that you "took" your idea. I've had that happen to me more than once, and boy was I mad! But I tried to think of other reasons why they had created that thread, and just decided to let it go. I'm not going to fight over an idea posted, but I think originality counts big in this section.

Whew, long post! You don't have to read the entire thing if you don't want to

Default Re: Originality of New threads going down?

Yeah, you're very right. : )

I try and post my ideas, opinions, questions, stories and other stuff.

Some of my threads get deleted, actually a lot even if I followed rules, but I just had to get over it.

Anyway, thanks a lot for posting this! I hope that some people will take your amazing thread into recognition.

Yes, originality does seem to fit too. :0
Oh, courtesy threads, definetly. They'll never be leaving. Uness everyone on WI sees that post. xD

Yeah, I think I know what you were referring to, about 'taking' ideas ... it can get really irritating. But the funny thing is, whoever posts, they're usually aware of the previous thread ... we don't let originality slip past either ...

Huh .... we were just talking about quality-length threads ... and your post was large enough to become a thread itself! Rep! (LOL, I think this is like the ... 5th time I've given you rep over a great idea ... xD)

That's a thread? I feel more people need to make longer posts, lil' kinz need to read the site before making an account than say "posting 4 WI bucks". I think all threads that are duplicate should be locked. I think if you make a thread that says "I hate WI", you should be banned instead of warned. Sorry, I got a little carried away there, but I think those duplicate, tiny threads have to go.
i see that also. I think you should go to Webkinz - PSI / PSF to see if it has been announced.

I agree!

I don't suggest any ideas as soon as they come to my mind, so when someone suggests something that I already did, it is really hurtful.

Rep!
