Desty, you always make the best posts. Imagine what WI would be if we didn't have any of these rules. Completely chaos.

What? I haven't seen off topicness ( is that even a word?) I've only seen the angry people who are mad about the strict rules, (Its A LOT better to be safe than sorry, because somebody said they'd rather be unsafe, well, you'd rethink that if a creeptacular creeper came and took you...) And posts about stop bashing the Mods/Admins. But, I don't read ALL the posts. (:

If you feel that it shouldn't have been deleted, then pm a mod or admin. They will tell you why it was deleted.

I don't think it's off topic.. people are discussing experiences they had, we are still talking about the WI rules and the bottom line it still the same

(I'm just visting and I had this Idea to write this letter.)


Dear WI Members

I come on here to get away from the real world my life is crazy. When I joined
back in 09 it was fun had fun looking at the threads in Open mike and throwing my two cents in and the polls were awesome and
finding new friends that like the same things I do and designing my profile.

This past year I and many other members felt like the rules are getting stricter
because our post/threads get deleted for reasons that aren’t in the rules and
the members are leaving.When we ask why they get deleted sometimes Mods and
admins don’t give us answers half the time. I know of one story a club thread got
deleted and nobody got answers why it got deleted, now it moved to a different Webkinz
forum. It’s gets aggravating and frustrating!!!! Guys wait till you get your post/threads deleted every time you turn around then you’ll get fed up with it....... I know you guys are tired of us complaining about it but it’s our opinion and it’s not so much as complaining just sharing our opinion. I’ve seen complaining and I can tell the difference between the two.
The Mods and Admins are amazing! There are a four that I even Admire!!!

I know it’s a “family friendly” site but the only thing is your thinking about the little kids and not us older kids. There are forums out there that have rules but they are more relaxed and funner. I’m on
these four forums and I feel like I can be myself and NOT be afraid of getting in trouble
every time I turn around. Some members(including me) are getting mature! I know
rules are there to keep us safe but it’s hard to follow them when you don’t know what
they are half the time!!! They get change every time you turn around. I know this is a
big forums but I’ve seen bigger and their rules are lade back and none of their members run wild.

Creative writing and Role playing rules I didn’t know that little kids didn’t huge their friends or hold their parents hands.When did that happen? I know I’m in my teens but I didn’t know that. Please explain to me why that isn’t aloud on here. Am I miss understanding something about that? If I Remember right that is rated G or am I just not getting it? I asked my mom who works
with kids under age of 8 and she says that its allowed and she’s been in this children field for a VERY long time. I remember being a little girl watching rated G movies and people are hugging and holding hands. To me ( I know people will disagree in which I’ve had that happen to me so many times I just don’t care anymore) that should be aloud or at lest hugging!


Open mike, if you aren’t gonna allowed family/friend advice or anything like that then What is the reason for having it?
I understand the medical advice like ( OMG I fell off my bike and my leg hurt
so bad I can’t hardly move what do I do? Or My dad can’t breath what do i Do?) but
like I just got braces any advice on how to take care of them( I know orthodontists are supposed to tell you but sometimes people don’t listen)? or anything like that seems fine to me....
PLEASE stop with the fluff threads! I’m begging you PLEASE!!!!!!! They are beyond
anything annoying! I’m like why are you telling the hole world this? Did you know ANYONE can see it?

The only reason why I go in this site is because of these few people that are my greatest friends( I know it’s shocking I have friends!!). Now it’s even harder to chat with them and not be afraid of saying the wrong thing and getting in trouble. I know you’ll say “ oh you can just leave if you don’t like the rules” My friends MEAN everything to me ( I’ve NEVER had true friends like I do now. Ya they can get on my last nerve but they are my friends) and it’s beyond hard to just say bye i’m leaving! And when you say that it makes us feel that you actually want us to leave WI..

This is how I feel and my opinion. I know you won’t
agree with me. Nobody hardly ever does.
I’m not changing my opinion. I’m not changing who I am. That what you guys are basically telling me to do. I think Justin, Wendy and Kevin made an awesome site and Thanks but I’m starting to get too old for webkinz and for WI( I know Cows An’t 99 years old!! Thats just impossible!). I’m not changing me and my opinion. If you can’t accept it then................... I’m SORRY!

Love Kayla8209. I only come on WI every three or four days. I don't stay on all day every day.

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

I think to a certain extent some things can be discussed. Something like "I'm having friend problems and don't know what to do" but doesn't go too in depth. I know sometimes it can be hard talking about your problems to people face to face and it's easier online. As long as threads don't get too out of hand or too personal I think it should be allowed. Sometimes people are just seeking reassurance. I don't think reassurance is too out of hand. However threads like "My friend _____ and I are fighting over a guy.... blah blah blah" shouldn't be allowed. Threads that an apply to any age group (just like my first example) should generally be allowed.

Love Kayla8209. I only come on WI every three or four days. I don't stay on all day every day.
Thanks for taking the time to post this. I'd like to point out a couple of things that i strongly disagreed with in this letter, if i may.

First off, people will disagree with you all your life, i just want to say nobody is trying to change you. You don't need to change your opinion becuase others disagree. It's YOUR opinion.

Now, if a thread was deleted, there must have been a legit reason for it. Do you remember what the thread was about? Think back, and ask yourself, would it be okay for a 7 year old to come along and read that?

We understand that you, along with many many other WI members are maturing-- it's a part of life!! While you are maturing, others may not be. We need to keep all of our members in consideration with every little thing we post.

You mentioned that other forums are more relaxed. Well, while comparing, let's see... Do those other forums have this many members? Do they have such great updates? Great spoilers? You mentioned some forums are even bigger, but they may not be as safe. It is unbelievable what kind of people this world holds. Although we may be great people with big hearts, unfotunately not everyone is like this. People can gather information from you, and that is NOT what we want here at WI. Without rules, this site would be terrible.

Yes, young kids may hug each other, they may hold hands with their parents. But there are reasons this is not allowed on WI. Things like that can get easily out of hand, and if a little child comes and sees it, there is no going back.

Once you post something and the wrong eyes see it, deleting the thread does not make them forget about it. There are some things that children should NOT learn from a website, instead from their parents and teachers.

This site is a WEBKINZ fan site. Not a hugging, health related, off topic, hand holding fan site. It is a privellage to have the open mike, RP , and head to the pollz section. Has anyone ever considered that if we are unable to follow the rules, these sections could be removed? We should be happy that we have them at all, so we should abide by whatever rules the mods and admins have. Just remember to keep things age appropriate. If something gets deleted and you don't know why, maybe try pming a mod or admin that is ONLINE and active (:

The rules are only theur to keep everyone safe.

thanks for writing this it was worth logging on a replying to this


by the way a lot of people are on strike including me, but i had to log in because my friend on facebook saw this awesome post and i had to log in to reply to it

I agree with everything you said by the way, at least if they can't let a couple things for the older people like putting hugs and had holding in our stories thay could at least make a Webkinzinsider for 12 years and older, i mean it would be the same thing only for older kids and less stricter rules, so everyone would stop complaining and putting people down... frick even i'd stop complaining.

I'M SUGGESTING THIS STRONGLY!! MAKE A WI FOR OLDER KIDS!!!!!!!! I MEAN COME ON! YOU GUYS ALREADY HAVE.. WHAT FIVE WEBSITES?! MAKE ANOTHER FOR THE SAKE OF NOT LOSING ALMOST EVERY SINGLE MEMBER YOU GUYS HAVE!!!!
