Just use common sense, have fun, and don't be so offended if something gets deleted. It happens. It's happened to me. I survived it. LOL
The mods and admins are not evil vampires with their fingers hovering over their delete buttons. They want to have fun here, and make it possible for everyone to have the best experience here possible.
I agree with all of Desty's posts.

To be honest, I don't think rules should be added to the polls section.

They should be added to the Open Mike section. The rut WI is in now is a lot because of the people who just go to the OM section, and go nowhere else. I'm not pointing fingers (PLEASE don't be offended) but that's a lot of the reason. They don't have that many rules there compared to how many rules they in the polls section and some other sections around here, and the OM place is where we need it!

That's just my opinion, and please no one be offended by it...

As i look over the Absolutely Not allowed section of the WI rules (Click HERE), It all looks really basic... No posting personal information, no personal pictures, swearing, spam, ect. I don't know how you can get any more basic than "no swearing".

Then you scroll down to the red part. No trading out side the GE. Easy enough.

Scroll down some more ... guide lines (things we'd rather you NOT do), Dont make duplicate threads, dont be rude to people, don't put your GE in your avatar/signature. Easy.

Scroll down a little more ... What to expect in terms of moderation (whats going to happen if you break an "Absolutely not" rule. ... What you can expect from us (self explanitory) ... and Notes.

All in all, its not that complicated. Pretty basic if you ask me.
The rules they list here are basic from what you said.. But they get a bit deeper than that.

Don't list your age.

Okay, let's be HONEST here. How many of you think just because I said I was a 46 year old woman (which I'm not BTW) that would make you think "Oh, I know who she is now! Let's go stalk her and kidnap her!". It doesn't work that way. There are way too many 46 year olds in the world for that to happen. Just think logically.

No appearance polls.

The same circumstance as above, think about it. Just because I have brown hair doesn't mean you can identify me because of that. Now you know who I am because I said I have brown hair? Nuh uh.

You may list what state/province you live in.

Here's the problem for me.. How come you can list THIS and not some basic facts about what you look like (I'm not saying describing you in full detail, I mean describing you in basic facts) and yet you can list that you live in California? I find that to be a bit more revealing if you ask me. I'm not saying that you should take away this privilege, just think about it.

And then there are the oddball things where a thread gets deleted, or you get in trouble. Like my friend poll got deleted for "not being original enough" is THAT in the rules? Yes duplicate threads are said they are going to be deleted but that WASN'T a duplicate thread, it has its own names in it etc.

I have also been disqualified from a contest because I was asking people to vote for my entry in a PM rather than a VM, whereas plenty of people have not gotten in trouble and they're VMing their ads to vote for their entry, for the EXACT same contest.

Things like this may seem small, but when they start to build up and take the fun away you realize why WI has such strict rules and why so many people have chosen to quit.

i think that the rules are fine as they are. it's always worked, why change it now because a few people don't like them. or think that they're too strict. who cares? you can't stop people from voicing their opinion and there's no need to make MORE rules. i think that it's perfect the way it is.

Hi all. Ealier today I saw a thread that got closed right after they opened it. It was very rude, it was a protest, a protest about the touring van contest. They were mad because they didn't win and thought most people who won were a GT, Gifted, or a GG. They started a protest why they never win. I thought how rude is that? Mods and Admins do this for fun and yourself. I was very mad why they would ever say that. That is just my opinion. WHat about you evryone?

I agree with Desty...

Also, I'd feel better if this thread was deleted and never talked about again.

THAT I understand why it was deleted. Stuff like that SHOULD be deleted. And that totally isn't true, my friend Kangabelle won and she isn't gifted...

But some of the other things that are closed down and/or deleted to me are unneeded.
