Default WI would be nicer if...

Ok I have been reading some threads lately and I have to say they are horrible. People are posting stuff that is really mean and rude! I have been think about this for awhile and if the members of followed this it would be 10x easier for everybody.

1. Before you post something like "I didn't get the for my B-Day" think. What good will it do you? What will people say to you?

2. Before you post something like "You are so spoiled! Think about the poor people in other countries and get on with your life. Webkinz isn't the only thing in the world." to a thread like the thread example in 1. Think. What will the person reading this think? What will other people reading this think?
I think that is rude and uncalled for to post.

3. Before posting your opinion know the risk! Think what will people say if they don't agree? Will this cause a fight? Is it really worth sharing? Start a thread knowing the risks and thinking of the outcome. That could eliminate so much fighting on WI.

4. Before disagreeing with someone think: An I being nice about this disagreeing? Am I going to belittle someone's opinion? Am I being rude? Will I start a fight? Do I fully understand what I am saying or what I am reading?

5. Separate opinion from fact. Think about what your reading. It is fact or opinion? It does no good to go against fact so save yourself some time and think.

6. Ask if what you are saying is worth showing the whole world. Is your post rude or mean? Is it something meaningless that you should keep to yourself? Does it really add to anything?

7. Be nice. People are really rude about stuff like people complaining. It really drives me nuts! It is worse than the original poster because all it does is add to what the person said! Also be nice about what you post. Think about what your saying. Are you really telling someone am important thing or are you just yelling at them telling them how awful they are! That is really rude.

8. Remember the person you're talking to. Not seeing someone is a good excuse to yell and be mean. Think "If I was standing there with that person in front of me would I say that directly to their face?" I doubt you would.

9. When you make a thread think about what good it will do. Will it help someone or give them opportunity. Is it just a way to ramble? Before making a thread or post think about what it is good for.

10. This the most important one in my opinion. Remember the fun. Is this website about getting mad or fighting? No, it is about the fun of webkinz! It is supposed to be a fun place to discuss webkinz. Not a place to fight! Remember the purpose and think about why you are on here. To tell someone they are spoiled and rude or to have fun and talk about webkinz?

I hope you will take this in consideration. Think before you act is a good summary. I hope all of will see this! I think if people think about that would be more fun for all.

Here is what I post on some threads that are a little "complainy"

"Cheer Up! You've got life to live for!"

Anyone at all?

I always tell people, re-read your response before you post it. If you would be embarrassed to say the same thing to your grandmother, delete it.

Its very easy to forget your manners because the other person is not in front of you, but we all need to remember our words hurt just as deeply when they are written as if they were spoken face to face.

Thanks for bringing this up. I agree with you completely. Why bother being mean and rude? All you do is hurt the other persons feelings, and it does no good to you.

YES! This concludes to Cherry's ," Come On WI, we can do better than this" It is about posers and the nice way to say stuff you don't like. I'll post a link.
