The mods are human too, guys. There are definitely some that are more lenient than others.

Thanks for posting your opinions, guys.
I would like to quote each one separately, but that'd take me all day, and I'd end up repeating myself. >_> Hope you don't mind.

Well, they are the adults in charge here.
They should be able to agree and set up solid rules that everyone has to follow...

Sorry, but I don't really agree. WI is way too strict already, and adding these rules would only make things worse. In fact, WI is the most strict forum I've ever been to before. And we also should have the right to say whether we like a website or not.

I agree compleatly. The WI rules are for your safety. If people do not want to follow them DO NOT JOIN! Some people join so they can complain. It is a pain.

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

There are already stickied threads in each section of the WI forums that show the sort of threads that are not allowed in that particular part of the forums. If people are making threads without reading those threads and the thread gets deleted, it's because everyone should read the stickied threads before posting on the forum. Also, I don't think Open Mike would be such a great idea, as a large population of our members don't hang out here in Open Mike. It could be in this section, WI Rules & Suggestions. As for this list,
Quote:
An example of things that would be allowed...
Earning money advice
What type of pet/ipod/camera/webkinz/ect should I get
Outfit help
Recommendations for music/books/movies/video games
Where can I find/buy a certain item
These are things that are already fairly clearly allowed mostly in Open Mike or General Discussion. I also agree with Desty, and a lot of others here. This site has a volunteer staff, and we are very lucky that they're all so nice and some even a bit lenient with punishment. And that we haven't driven anyone crazy. As for members being confused as to why their thread was deleted or anythings, they could PM a staff member with questions and I'm sure they would be happy to answer.
Sorry this turned out so long... what I'm trying to say is, I agree with you, but most of these rules already are renewed and/or very clear.

Well, they have. Some people can't seem to want to follow the rules they agreed to when they joined. I think it's just that a few of the members have changed, not so much the rules. I would say that the overwhelming majority of the members here love that this site is the way it is.

the rules are for your safety. the internet is a scary place sometimes. i believe this website is intended for users of very young ages, and teens, adults, elders, etc.
what if a 9 year old girl saw a thread about BP's oil spill and a bunch of people fighting about it. what about a thread that the topic is the economy.
it's "strict" for safety. I think the rules are for my safety and others. yeah, I have had some threads deleted but I see why they were deleted.

When my threads/posts get deleted, I always PM a mod if I am unsure. Some are more than happy to help and answer my questions, while others could care less. It is nice that some are willing to help, but I still think it would be nice to have some details written out.
