I honestly agree, only my issue is that mods are too quick to delete threads that are in the "wrong" place. Sometimes this is a matter of opinion. I made a thread "Have you seen CATS the musical?" and it got deleted. I was told it was supposed to be i n polls. In my opinion, there was no reason to delete that thread. I think it was fine in open mike. it wasn't hurting anything, or confusing anyone.

I think the rules need to be revised, as you said, with a list of thread types not allowed. Many threads are deleted for reasons not in the rules. I'm not saying it's a bad idea to delete some of them, I'm saying that the rules need to be inclusive of ALL threads that will be deleted.

Just my two cents.

The reason why I was confused was because in my PM I said to "open up his trade thread", and I didn't say anything like "Hey, I got ____, what would you trade me for it?" I don't think that was explicitly saying I wanted to trade through PM but maybe we can get this cleared by a GC/mod/admin. I don't know whether rules have been changed since then.


I agree with this- since we're both respectfully stating our opinions, this isn't an argument It's great to see how others think and sometimes you can learn from others. For example, there are debates about laws, so of course there could be debates about rules.
That's odd-come to think of it, I don't even know what the definition of "trading/trade talk" in PM is! I just became a Guru not so long ago, and don't recall anything except for something to the means of "You have the ability to open/close your own thread, and trade through PM". Hmm-that's interesting. Maybe you should PM a mod about it...

But that's kind of off topic-It's important to ask questions about the rules if you have any doubts, because, as you said, the rules can always change and, as some people refer to it, the "strictness of the staff" about certain things can too, and not everyone may be aware of these changes.

I agree that on occasion, I will post, or create a thread, and it might be deleted, and I'll look in the rules, and the reason may not be there. However, I don't think there is any way for EVERY possible example to be listed into the rules.

On the other hand, I think it would be a GREAT idea to have a new thread or something created in the Pollz/Open mike section (these seem to be the places where the most issues are), something to the means of a thread where people could post ideas for polls asking if they were OK, and a mod could maybe answer, and add it to a list on the front page. I got this idea from the stickied thread in the Are You Game? section that JacksMom maintains.

Hmm. I think everyone here does a good job of enforcing the rules. I don't think they are too strict, but honestly, a few in-depth guidelines might do everyone a little justice

no, this is just plain insulting the rules.

Well, one time more than 50 of my posts were deleted when my thread in Creative Works was deleted as well. It was deleted when the new (very strict) rules in that section began.

I strongly agree with this, webkinz insider was fun for the first few days, but then I saw this dog that was doing the stomp action on me in regular kinzchat AND glaring at me as well, and on the thread I said I glared back, but it got deleted because "rudeness with rudeness is not allowed.". I've seen at least 10 THREADS that were completely rude, and to this day, all them are still there! What the?
Ps I'm really sad u got banned dotdotduck. I don't think u did anything wrong except this thread, which really needs to get more publicity.

I pretty much agree with you, DDD.
Just wondering: what's so bad about family advice threads?

someone could say

"maybe if you slapped your brother that would solve everything. also you should throw his toys everywhere that would do it."

I may be over exagerating, but that's my point.
