BUT, if you send multiple PM's, you can't see the other responses, and what if you need everyone to see everyone else's replies? That is where private threads would come in.

Default Re: Private Threads

personally, i don't agree. it can make other members feel excluded when 2 or more members talk about something that everyone else has no way of knowing about. also, i view and browse many more threads than i post in, so if i don't even have the right to browse a thread, well, that's not really fair. and if i can browse it but not post in it, then i can't express my own opinions, maybe as constructive criticism for something, or to point out a mistake that is vital to the conversation. the whole point of WI is that all members can express their feelings on any subject, mostly about webkinz world though, whenever and wherever they want. it's a nice idea for those who use those threads, but not to those who don't. also, what if a new person joins your club or team or something? then you will have to reprogram the entire thread to let just 1 more person in. way too much work for something so small.

I know that on Animal Crossing Community, you can invite anyone you want with just the click of a button. There could be a small tab to type in a username and add others.

There are several downsides I see to this though.

First, I would worry that people would really retreat to those areas and stick to them. Part of what Justin and Wendy have always tried to maintain was a forum where all ages of Webkinz users could chime in on issues involving WW. Other than the GE, there is not a place on WI that isn't open to everyone and in that regard, anyone can join the GE as long as they abide by the rules and meet the requirements.

We've never been a forum crazy about excluding anyone from any thread.

Second, I think ITS is right. It would be tougher for the staff to maintain. Right now, we very much rely on our members to flag inappropriate or unnecessary posts. Private threads would have to be entered into by the staff and then moderated. On a forum as large as ours is already, thats more work that we don't really need. Its the same reason that we only allow one DCT. If there were threads where people could discuss whatever they wanted, we'd have to police all of them.

But the time you put into the thought is appreciated!

Excellent response Fairlyoddmom. I agree 100%. This would create more divisions in the membership and would be very difficult for us to manage on such a large site. Not to mention the arguments that could result from people that are excluded from certain threads.
