The Open mike is for off topic discussion (things not related to the other areas, or webkinz) that is:

A.) Appropriate for WI and everyone who participates in our forums. And B.) Follows the rules of our site & that section. Just like the other sections on WI, we do ask that if you post you follow the rules of that section. There are plenty of topics in the open mike that are appropriate and fun for everyone. Its not just for one item to discuss, but many of them.

MANY MANY MANY other people could have the exact same thing. Anything else, would be bad. But again, it's the kid's responsibility to know what to say.
That's why WI has rules, to stop children from telling info.

My kindergartener study buddy has a boyfriend. That ship has sailed for all the little kids I know. The world is a sick place and the rules are there to keep you safe. At least they didn't learn it from WI. Perhaps we can keep a few of these little kids from this fate. (PS My neighborhood is very bad I might move soon though)

3. WI is not a place for dating advice. Polls like "does he like me" or "who should I date" or "what do you look for in a guy" are just going to be deleted, so please don't start them.

Sorry, but I had to post this. It's from the rules in the Poll section (created by AnthonysMommy), but this counts for ALL parts of WI. If you don't believe me you can go check here. Especially the part where I bolded and italicized. You had to agree to the rules when you joined WI and this is one of them you had to agree to.
And I put this thread back up to 4 stars, because we really shouldn't be bashing the staff and WI.

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.
I'm going to agree with Jazzy. But somethings we can't change. So we either stay on WI, or leave.
I am going to stay. -And follow the WI rules as much as I can, even if I don't like them

Default Re: Revising the Rules, stop bashing on WI and the Staff.

If the rules here become more open and lax, this site will lose many of the adult members who have contributed a lot, (and some have already left or are considering leaving because of all of this complaining) and many of the kids who joined this site because their parents checked it out and gave it an 'ok'. I would leave too. I have visited other Webkinz forums, and I do not like the more relaxed rules. Those sites tend to crash more often as well. I do not think that the people here who have offered those other sites as options have offered something that is safe. You either have rules and boundaries, which create a safe website, or you have lax rules, which create many potential serious problems. I would really like to know what the founders of this site decide. I won't stay on a site that doesn't value safety as its top priority.
