Remeber, this is a WEBKINZ website!!
 
OK, well, I'm not saying teenagers shouldn't join, but I feel like everyone's personality is kind of like a teenager and I just don't think we should be doing that because, well, little do we know, six year olds could be on here! And some people have inappropriate avatars or signatures or like they post a picture of Lady GaGa or something and, she's not very modest about her clothes choice. Also, on polls, some people have really mean answers and if the six year old (just probably the youngest I can go) saw that, their parents would have no idea because they thought "Oh, yes, you can join that. After all it is called Webkinzinsider". AND if they made a shop, and their graphics weren't really that good, someone could come out and say "I don't like your shop." or "I don't like what you made me".
And, most of the threads or posts around here are not about webkinz! If I could guess I'd say 35% out of 100% the posts/threads are are about webkinz. And the rest are about bands or clothes, or anything not webkinz.
So, all I'm asking is please think about what you're saying BEFORE you post it.
Thank you.

I agree with you 100% on how we act on here. We should all be modest and true in all we say and do, like we should be everywhere. Thank you for the reminder to keep us all in thumb. As for Webkinz related content, we all wouldn't be on here if we didn't like them. I think it's nice that we can speak about other things as well and meet knew people. :)

I agree with you!! My little sister goes on here, for Pete's sake... bad examples for her to be reading "whatever, I don't like her anyway. :P " and stuff like that. And, yeah! My dad even goes on here to peek at what I'm doing occasionally, and he sees all these word-fights going on, and he has said several times "I want to get an account and post on here, 'this is a website for people who buy stuffed, plush, toy animals!' ::) "

So yes. I agree with you. :nod:

Yes. I'm not saying you can't talk about other things but you should try to keep in webkinz topics. Thank you for posting. ;)

Yup. My parents don't check my account but if they knew half the stuff I was doing, they would guest my account. Well, I'm not saying at all that I do stuff I'm not allowed to do, but you know, some things I need kept private.

I doubt a six year old could read and write well enough to take in all the info on this site. I don't think a child that age should be on any internet forum at all, sorry. As far as I've read here, the mods do a terrific job with editing inappropriate things. Even so, parents have the responsibility to monitor their kids when they are online. There are many teens and adults here. We all have a common interest in Webkinz, but a small child should not be online without a parent's help.

Well, yes, this IS a Webkinz site, and over 75% of the threads ARE Webkinz related, but we have the Open Mike section for a reason. It is so people have other things to talk about, find more ways to make friends, find similarities, etc. This site is working great, and I don't think anything should be changed. :)

Oh, and if someone has an inappropriate avatar, let an Admin know.

I kind of agree with you. The parts I agree with you are: the inappropriateness of avatars and siggies for younger children.

Why do I say that? I have seen some avatars that frighten me a tad (and I'm way older than a 6 year old), and most of my little cousins would be scared by them.

I don't agree with you about that we should only post about Webkinz. There are sections for posting about Webkinz, and then there are sections that can be totally unrelated to Webkinz or only partially related, like the polls, open mike, games, and some of the contests.

Well, I kinda agree with you. You do have a very good point. I just think we should be able to post other things other than webkinz, so there is a variety.

I agree with you. There is way too much "teen" stuff on here lately. There are ALL age groups here on the forum. I have stopped visiting as much as I used to because of all the "teen" chitchat and behavior.
Yes, there are areas, for everyone to post about everything under the sun and under Webkinz sun but it has gone overboard.
That is just my opinion, and everyone is intitled to their opinions.:)

Re: Remeber, this is a WEBKINZ website!!
 
I TOTALLY AGREE!!! It bothers me that a LOT of what is on this site, in the forums, isn't Webkinz related at all. It shocks me that A LOT of people on here don't even like Webkinz! I've seen several polls and threads asking if people play Webkinz, and there is an overwhelming number of people who don't. I think WebkinzInsider should just be about Webkinz. WEBKINZInsider.
