Arrow Are we really that vain and conceited?

I have been venturing around the forum for a few minutes and have came across at least three signatures that really just made me like you couldn't imagine. Each of the signatures had a picture obviously just to show of their WW collection but it wasn't the picture that got to me, it was the words that came with it.

In various ways, it blatantly said, "I guess some people really DO have it all..." and that just really got to me. If you want to put a picture showing your retired items in your signature--go for it, be proud! BUT, but, but...don't add a comment with it that might make other people feel bad about their own collection.

I really have no problem with pictures showing your most prized possesions but really do you have to add, "I guess I really have it all" or "I suppose I am the best" or something of the sort? ??? The answer is no. Don't be vain and don't be conceited. It's not AT ALL appealing to anyone.

Alright, my rant is officially over.

Default Re: Are we really that vain and conceited?

Great and totally valid point.

I have come across a few of these, even though I mostly hang out in the Roleplaying section. I joined WW about a year and a half ago, so I don't really have a lot of super-rare items. Nor do I have alot of webkinz. I have gotten some rather scarce peices over time, but I'm not saying that I'm now the best.

And the line, "I guess I'm the best," and, "I have it all," reminds me of snotty rich kids from some movie that I've seen.....

Yes! It just sounds so snotty and I guess that is the main reason it caught my attention and I just had to bring it up.

I am not as concerned with the hurt feelings. It didn't at all hurt my feelings to see that...it disgusted me in many aspects.

I actually like the pictures, but like you, I believe the text can sometimes be over the top .

I agree more than words can express!
In my 2cents opinion, if you want to have a picture with a room full of rares that says: "Click the Pug in the Pic to visit my GE!" That's fine.
For a GE, that's fine with me!
I think saying "Click on the Froggie in the Pic to see my all-to-fabulous house" is ridiculous!
OK, great...you have a Webkinz housez thread. Do you need to call it: "All-to-fabulous"? No, in my opinion.
So, please, think before you type!
We already know you have fabulous stuff, don't flaunt it!

**If anyone really has that in their signature, please don't take offense. I haven't seen your signature and didn't know you had typed it. No offence given and I hope none was taken.**

Yeah, it's great if you want to show people your collection, but don't put anything that might make you sound conceited.

Yeah! Rep! I've never put pictures of my items in my signature, they've always included the following:
God (pretty much all the time lolz)
My Webkinz Health Guide
Once it said something really stupid: "I got this sig off a fig tree!"
Lolz I don't know where I got that phrase, but that was temporary until I figured out something to say special about God! =D
