Wink A reminder to All members: Expect different opinions.

Hi everyone. (:
I want to say something that's been bugging me a bit for awhile now. I see a lot of threads with people suggesting new things or posting their opinion on something. If you do this, please except both agreement, AND disagreement. I think some people think everyone will agree with them.. And that won't happen. I always get a little upset when people get mad at someone for posting their opinion on the situation, and I have seen this happen.
This is what I'm talking about:

Person One:
Hi, guys! I thought it'd be cool to have instant messaging on here. Tell me what you think!

Person Two:
Hi there.
I think since we have PM's, we don't really need them. Sorry!

Person One:
Okay. I just thought it was a good idea...

That's never happened. It's just an example.
The person really doesn't have the right to be mad or dissapointed because someone disagrees.. If you're allowed to like it, you should be allowed to dislike it.
But, that being said, if you don't like it or don't agree, please try your hardest to say it in a nice way! If not, the person DOES have the right to be upset or angry.

The wrong way to say it:
omg that's stupid. no offence but who would even want that??

The right way to say it:
Hm, I personally don't think that's really necessary.
Because...... (explain xD)

So, what I'm trying to say is:
If you make a thread where people can post their opinions, expect different opinions and don't expect everyone to agree with you. because chances are, not everyone will. (:
And if you are the disagree-er, tell them politely, not rudely.

- Candice

I agree, candice! I think you're right, you have to accept both sides of the arguments.

Very good thread! An opinion can't be proved right or wrong; which is why we all need to respect each other's thoughts, feelings and opinions. Who wants their feelings being hurt by someone who says something rude and inconsiderate, referring to somebody else's thoughts? We all really need to try and respect each other's ideas instead of putting them down and making others feel bad.

That is right.

Do not post a thread on here if you are not ready to hear different opinions than your own.!!

And something I learned that is important........

Two things can be true at the same time!!!!!!!!!

Your idea and mine!

Good thread, Candice
You're right. If you post a thread about something, be prepared for people to disagree. It's how life is, people agree and people disagree. Don't be hurt, or offended if someone has a different opinion. It's how it is. If that person states their opinion rudely, then report it. But if a member states their opinion respectfully, then just take their critizism to heart

I completely agree with you! This is how fights are started. Whenever I disagree with suggestions, I just say it as nicely as possible because I don't want to hurt the person's feelings.

Learning to accept people's opinion is an important thing here on Webkinz Insider! We don't have to all agree with something. I agree with you on the part that if we're allowed to agree with something, we're allowed to disagree with something.

Great thread idea!

Great thread! I agree 100%!

First of all,when you open a thread here,your going to have to expect some people not to disagree. It sounds a little bit babyish to be like "But this is such a great idea,I can't believe you don't agree. . . . " When some one doesn't agree,just say "Okay,thanks for the opinion! " And move on. I mean,an opinion is like,if someone is asking you if you like cheese. Like someone else said on here,theirs no right or wrong answer.

But,that doesn't mean you can say something like "Omg dats the stupidest idea EVER!!!!!" If you don't like the idea but want to say something,you can just say "Sorry,I don't like this idea. . . . "

Rep if I can give you any!

I am with you Candice. In order to give criticism you have to be able to take it.
