Default Ranting/Complaining Section

I've noticed that Open Mike has been flooded with ranting threads lately. If you were to break all the threads up in Open Mike, AT LEAST 50% of them are ranting threads. And then still more to fill up the Clubhouse section so much to make KC+ seem like the worst place in WW, and then even some that spill into the DCT. This really needs to stop happening, as it is making the WI community seem like they're grumpy all the time. Nobody likes to go into a non-Webkinz section, to only see the DCT, "I WANNA HAVE A BOYFRIEND BUT DUNNO HOW", "MY BF BROKE UP WITH MEH, ", "MY PARENTS ARE MEAN", "MY DOG ATE MEH HOMEWORK AND NOW I GOT DETENTION", ect, ect, when they don't have any advice, and are slow typers and can't keep up with the DCT, and want to talk about just something other than Webkinz. They would have to quit WI because they can't talk about anything. Then WI would lose members. Please help WI and support!

I think you are exaggerating a bit, in the DCT people rarely rant, and not 50% of the Open Mic is ranting. And people don't take desperately and in caps like that, they are calm and give detail.
I agree, there should be less, but make sure you don't exaggerate. I honestly don't like hearing about the people's problem that I don't know either.

Actually people '"rant" anywhere. I wouldn't really call it ranting. People just sometimes want advice and need a way to express their feelings. I guess some feel WI is a good place for it. The forum is still fun and the members aren't "grumpy". We're still a happy forum for the most part.

I think a ranting/complaining section is rather negative, don't you? The Open Mike section is not CLUTTERED with venting threads. Also, there could be a lot of arguements if there were to be a ranting/complaining section. Just the sound of it makes me feel irked. If people need to vent, they can do it in the DCT or Open Mike. The Open Mike section is for anything off topic. If a section such as this was added, it'd be almost promoting complaining. We should all try to be optimistic

I agree with Gillian. It seems your post is a bit exaggerated. Sometimes people just need to search for help, and first thought is WI, because its like a second helpful and loveable family.

I don't know if I missed something, but I looked at the 1st page of the Open Mike section and I didn't see a single rant/complaint. However, I have to agree with you that there have been more rants and stuff on WI. I think that we agree that Webkinz in going downhill and since WI was make because of Webkinz, I'm not surprised about this.

Yes, it's not ranting just expressing your feelings.

Default Re: Ranting/Complaining Section

In my opinion, this would be feeding the fire of rants and complaining. People have pet peeves (lord knows I am one of them), and they all differ from each other. I think allowing threads with such rants would result in people trying to justify why they might do something that was posted as an annoyance by another person.

I think people should write their complaints, let themselves simmer, and then hit the backspace button. That's something I have been working on myself. And, if you still think someone should be aware of the situation to help you through it, PM it or VM it to that person.

On my bathroom wall, I have a saying: Keep Calm, and carry on.

I saw it on a sign in a store, and it made me think. Whenever I get upset, I say the quote to myself and build a bridge to get myself over it. =)
