Default Question about Posting.....

As you can tell, I'm really new at this, but do you only get credit for posts if you post NEW threads? I thought you got them if you replied to threads also?!

Can someone please clarify? And if you do get credit for replying to a post, why does my post total say I have only 2?

For every thread you join discussions in you receive a "post point". I see you now have 3, which means you earned one more when you started this thread. If you come back here and reply this won't count as only unique threads count - much like the Feedback system. Hope this helps.

No, they don`t have to be New Threads.
And you have 3 posts becuase you have posted on 3 forums.
Note that if you post in the 'Help! I need a pet name!' section, you do not get a post point.
Hope this helps!

Default Re: Question about Posting.....

Every post you make counts, whether you create a new thread, or if you reply to one.

The only exception is in the Pet Names section, and in the Gift Exchange, but the GE does not apply to you.

Welcome to WI by the way.

They need to be helpful posts, not just " I like your room!" Very nice to say, but not counted toward your helpful post tally. Try to help someone with a webkin or webkinzinsider problem. Read the FAQ section at the top (it is in green). It has a lot of helpful information.

Default Re: Question about Posting.....

Hello and Welcome to WI. It is very confusing at first. You started a "thread". When I post here this will count as one post. However if you reply to my post on this thread and I post again the second post I made does not increase my post count. Also any post you make on threads looking for pet names do not count. When you apply for gifting status you will need to have had fifty helpful or contributing posts. This means they will not count and "fluff" posts. Such as adding to a thread "good job", or "nice find", or such. You need to expand on your answers and give thoughtful, helpful advise. Any more questions, feel free to ask.

they dont have to be helpful. If you start ur own thread or join in somebody elses, it gets counted toward your post count.

It does count toward your post count, but not toward the helpful posts you need to become gifted. I could post OMG! 100 times, but it does not count toward becoming gifted.
