Arrow Revising the Rules, stop bashing on WI and the Staff.

I know this thread's gonna get closed soon, but unlike the other threads that have been made on this topic and deleted, I AM NOT HERE TO COMPLAIN OR ARGUE.
So, Staff, members of WI; I ask you to read what I have to say.

Recently, I've been seeing lots of people complaining that WI's rules are getting stricter and you can't make a good thread without having it deleted and that WI isn't fun anymore. Thread's get closed for reasons like WI not being the best place to ask for medical advice, dating/friendship help, family problems, ect... I agree with that, I don't think WI is the right place for this, some random 8-year old could come on here, post something totally wrong, and then you could try it and have a problem.


My suggestion is either
A] Revising the WI rules and going in-depth with what kinds of threads we can't make. That way, someone can't say "Oh, there's just a Staff member going around closing all my threads because they don't like me and they gave me a stupid reason for closing/deleting it that isn't even in the rules".

Or B] Making a thread and posting it somewhere where all can see [probably Open Mike] that also has a list about threads we can't make.
We already have one like that in the Polls section [but I think that needs to be updated, too... like no polls asking "Find the Lie", "Guess My Name", and stuff like that cause those are getting deleted, too] --->
http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...before-582474/

If there were to be a list of thread topics that aren't allowed, I think it should look something like this [just put together in my head in like 5 seconds as an example] :


An example of things that would be allowed...
Earning money advice
What type of pet/ipod/camera/webkinz/ect should I get
Outfit help
Recommendations for music/books/movies/video games
Where can I find/buy a certain item

My original idea was to have a list of threads we can/can't make, but webkinz_forever pointed this out and I agree with her.

That's sorta like having certain sentences to choose from in KinzChat or whatever.

I have every right to be mad at the staff members if I want to. I'm under the belief that sometimes they make mistakes and yes, I think this site is way too strict. I think it's a shame, but more rules would just be the icing on the cake. Only, not in a good way.

All I'm doing is rambling so I'll shut up now.


NOT ALLOWED:
Health/injury/healthy eating advice
Friendship advice
Dating advice
Family advice
What to do with an injured animal

Like I said earlier, if there was a thread for this, or this was in the rules, people couldn't say, "Oh, there's just a Staff member going around closing all my threads because they don't like me and they gave me a stupid reason for closing/deleting it that isn't even in the rules".

All the Staff members would also be on the same page, because I've heard people say that one Staff member will close polls about a certain topic, but they asked another Staff member if those polls were allowed and they said they were fine. Another example is on a contest that I entered, one Staff member told that host that they could offer WI Bucks as prizes, and then the next day another Staff member comes along and edits the contest saying that giving out WI Bucks for prizes isn't allowed. So, if all the Staff came up with a list, they would all be closing and deleting the same types of threads and no one could claim that one Staff member is stricter than the other.

And on a final note, to the people who claim "WI is becoming too strict and favoring certain members by not closing their threads on a certain topic, but closing ones made by other members".
It is not for you to tell that Staff what you want them to do, it is their site, they run it, they make the rules. If it weren't for them, there would be no WI. If you have a problem, you can leave and find another site. Rules and regulations are getting stricter everywhere, not just online, but in real life; everywhere from airports and Arizona to zoos and New Zealand. You either adjust and accept it, try to work something reasonable out [like this], or leave.

I'm sorry if I've said something, but I really don't want to argue with you guys. We all have our opinions and ideas, so thanks for reading min

It will be interesting to see how they respond to your comments! My view is that they may not be able to make definite lists in all cases, and that sometimes we WI members will guess wrong or make mistakes.

I agree with something you mentioned, and that is that: "Not all WI staff agree on all subjects." I have personally had a MOD close a thread but yet when I inquired why, another MOD said that they didn't see anything wrong, and had no idea why the thread was closed.

This is very confusing and I think the WI community would be better served if all the WI staff "governed" by the same set of rules and regulations.

Agreed. People should be happy that why is strict because it's making it safer for everyone. If you have a family/medical/dating problem go talk to someone and NOT post it all over the internet.


Thanks for making this thread Julie.

Well, of course they wouldn't be able to get every single type of thread down and sorted if it should be allowed or not. It might help a bit...
And I'm not talking about people making mistakes and posting a thread that isn't allowed, people do make mistakes, I know. ;]
But what I think is wrong is when someone's thread gets deleted and they blame WI for being too strict and not saying anything about that type of thread being allowed in the rules.

Yes, that's exactly what I was talking about.

I completely agree with what I quoted from you. It would be like Kinzchat. Also, a few more rules apply, like for the GE.

I am with you. We do have every right to be mad at the staff members. The only reason I come to this site is because of friends. I used to enjoy it here but Rules are getting stricter!! and it's getting WAY hard to have fun on here. Plus some of us WI members are getting mutrue.... Some of Wi rules are pointless and confuesing.

Okay, I do get what you're saying for the threads we can make, I guess I do agree with that. We already do have a thread like that in the polls seciton for what kind of polls we can't make, why shouldn't there be one in open mike?

Well, WI is for all ages and it's intended to stay that way. If you want to talk about things that aren't allowed here because you're older, find another site or talk to a friend in real life about it. That's what I do.
