Yeah. Mods and admins chose the winners fairly.

I agree. I think the purpose of this thread has more than run its course. (my opinion) Honestly, if people have an issue about a rule, talk to someone in charge. Don't try to stir up trouble, just talk to one of them. They are NICE, and have gone way above and beyond patience to hear everyone out.

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.
Ahaha, you have hit quite a snag.

Because, if we were allowed to post all of this, this is what I would know about you:

You're 46
Brown hair, blue eyes, about 5' 6"
California
Name is Margaret

That's WAY too much info about yourself. People can identify you from that. You won't believe how many creepers spend their time surfing the internet gathering info like this.

The sad part is, yes, I have to admit if there was a creeper like that then they would spend that much time surfing the internet.

But one of my main points of that is maybe not allow saying where you live, and you can reveal your age? I don't know, but as far as posts go you can almost tell if someone is an adult or a child as they talk different and have different views life stories etc.. I'm sure most people have an idea of what age I am (though I've never said it, based on how I post you can give a good guess) as I have a good idea of what age you are HP..

So I think the age thing wouldn't make a difference, or that much of one anyways.

And that, unfortunately, is part of the problem. Anyone who makes a post or thread with differing views are usually deleted. Almost all "negative" things posted about WI are also deleted.

But that's just my opinion.

Mmm... I can almost GUARANTEE you are off by quite a few years.

It actually changes how I look at people. It sometimes makes me feel more awkward knowing if I'm so much older or younger than a person. Say, you tell me you're 19, and I tell you I'm, say, 13. I would feel really awkward and I wouldn't feel as equal to you as I do now.

I'm not asking for it to be deleted. Just closed. Is there possibly anything more that anyone could say? I think that the purpose of the thread was to alert Justin and the mods/admins, and members to rules, consistency and solutions. I think they all have seen this and are working on it. Justin said himself that he has put a lot of thought into this thread. What more can you want? There comes a point when 'the point' has been made.

I will not argue with you there. It just feels like sometimes posts aren't as funny or meaningful without your age behind it.. Like lets say you blew up an empanada like I just did () it wouldn't be that shocking if a 9 yr old had done that but if a 40 year old did it'd be hilarious.

But I totally get your point.

I agree with the age thing. I am not as old as a lot of members here, just telling by some who haven't seen the rules and post ages (before it's deleted) and I would feel very odd indeed and not knowing if some people would really like me anymore. The ages thing isn't only for safety, apparently.
I think that too. It would affect friendships. I mean, who says an 11 year old can't be great friends with someone 17 years old? Since it doesn't really happen comfortably in real life, that's why I like WI.
