I would have to totally agree. I value all of my posts, and yes, I would like to see rainbow stars under my name some day. That does not have to be soon, but I want it to happen. That doesn't mean I'll go out and form posts like that. I also find it annoying when people ASK for rep points. I'd rather go to someone and be like " I have x number of rep points- but I earned them." I want to earn those kinds of things, not just have them to show. It seems that people are trying to get this to show, not for the true meaning. I completly and totally understand where you are coming from and I have to agree with you. I have been a WI member for almost a year, activly posting for multiple months. I have also seen this change develop across WI. I also noticed that everyone is about petitioning and getting EXACTLY what they want. Some things just don't go the way we want, and we have got to understand this. I got very annoyed coming and seeing 4 petitions on the same concept, just modified a little bit. People think these help, and they might, but i personally don't think they do.

^^Sorry if I totally got off topic. I'm also sorry if I came off really rude or mean. As I re-read my post, it seemed that way to me. I was NOT trying to be mean or rude!

Hmmm...it does not sound rude or mean at all. It sounds LOGICAL and perfectly accurate. Thank you for bringing up the petition thing. I am going to put yours up on the main page.

No problem. People just have to understand that, while they may think so, we do not always get everything we want. Ganz is a multi-million dollar industry, and they don't have to listen to our requests. While it may help the company, they make enough money to keep every thing as it is.

I'm really glad to see a thread like this! One of the most distracting things to me is to try and read a thread for information or people's opinions and see all of the "omg 1st, 2nd, 3rd post!", "me too", "yay!" comments.

My family joined WW in January '08 and I was completely clueless to anything Webkinz. The only reason I even got involved in Webkinz was because my mother got my son a reindeer for Christmas and when he adopted it I fell in love with the game/site and bought a webkinz for myself and my husband as well. My husband stumbled onto Webkinz Insider and was always telling me all of this Webkinz related information! I kept thinking where on earth is he getting all this information from? Once he showed me the site, I fell in love with Webkinz Insider as well. It's been a huge source of information, as well as a reassurance when things go wrong. It's also great to know I'm not the only "parent/adult" that's addicted! I've never actually payed attention to my post count. In fact, I didn't even realize there was a post count until my husband stumbled onto the Gift Exchange and noticed you needed at least 50 post. (Yes, my husbands the observant one!). I'll admit, I've kept my eye on my post since then because I would love to be involved in exchanging gifts with other Webkinz lovers, but I haven't gone around posting random post to "up my count". So thank you to Webkinz Insider for providing a site where addicts like myself can come and chat, laugh, and read up on Webkinz related news! And thanks to you for posting this "reminder" - hopefully it'll sink in to those oblivious.

I must say I agree whole heartedly. I probably check a few things every day - but I don't POST every day...sometimes I even get that little notice at the top of my screen that says "you haven't posted in a while, why not...." -- I figure most of the time, if I don't have something constructive to add -- or a question that I don't already see the answer to, why take up space? The posts that really annoy me are the ones with a poor subject line like "click here" or "hey look at this" - I don't even give those a second look. If the subject line doesn't mean anything to me...I waste my time reading the post...

I post only to share my opinion and to help others, or to encourage. I don't even know how to access rep!

Also, spam posts really grind my beans (coffee pun). I hate it when people post, "Look at my GE!" on totally unrelated threads. In fact, today I saw a post that said "I'm bored so someone message me!" in all capital letters. I was inches away from reporting them.
