Wink Please don't do this...

Ok, I don't see this often, but I still want to give everyone a reminder.

The "Look what I got!" section is for people to post cool or new things they got, either a new webkinz, an item they have wanted for a long time, the crown of wonder, whatever.

It is not the "Congrats, but where did you get that?" section.

Here is the problem. Sometimes, usually when someone gets a rare webkinz like the cheeky dog or cat, or the sherbert bunny, they will make a thread. I always look through those threads, and I occasionally notice a few people saying things like this...

"Congrats! Wait, where did you get that?"

"Cool, but can you PM me their Ebay name, I want to see if they have any left"

"I have always wanted that pet! What's the name of the store again?"


Things like that. I want to tell everyone that the "Look what I got!" section is to say "congrats!" to people who are glad of what they got. I think it is disrespectful to them if people only want to take advantage of their accomplishment by trying to get info on the price, location, etc of the thing they got. If they want to share that info, fine, but I don't think we should pressure someone to give it up. We should tell them "cool" or "congrats," but we SHOULD NOT try to get info out of them if they don't want to tell. It makes them feel like people don't care they got something cool, and that we only want to get the rare thing they got ourselves...


(I don't see this often, I just wanted to make this before the problem grew)

true, very true. I do not look thorugh that section very often, but I feel that you are correct in saying that. That section should not be for that ttpe of thing. It should be for a congrats only.
