Be Nice On WA

Last Update: April 04, 2015

Some may think I am wrong for writing this, but I am afraid I am just the kind of person that likes to help others and to be Nice to people as best as I can. In my opinion, Wealthy Affiliate is the best place in the world to be for people who truly want to learn Affiliate Marketing.

The Community is awesome, but when I see some Comments given to people's questions, It Truly disappoints me and that in a way is heartbreaking. I see people trying to understand and do the best they can. Some learn this stuff quick and some learn this stuff slow. When a maybe smart person answers questions in a manner like the person needing answers is an idiot or should know better is in my opinion wrong. Even if it seems like a simple thing that everyone should know, I still try to answer in nice manner. Not in a manner like some.

Instead of trying to give individual help, some people just say do the Lessons you will get your answers. Yes, that may apply to some, but maybe try to do it in a Nice manner, but for those it does not apply to, maybe consider their question before assuming they just need to do Lessons. I just want to help New members and even ones that have been here for a while but hate asking the Community Questions out of fear of some people making them feel like idiots or Dummies when they answer.

I wish for people to Succeed as quickly as possible and never hesitate to get the help from the Awesome Community. So I guess I am wishing for anyone to never let people's harsh words or crude Comments to slow them down in asking questions and always believing in oneself that they will Succeed on this Journey.

I also wish that Members who may know everything to try and put themselves in the shoes of the ones that are just diving in the 1st chapter so to speak of building a Successful Website and try to be nice and Compassionate when helping others. I know WA Community can be and is a strong family. In many ways a better more dependable family than I have ever had.

I hope that even if I am here for 10 years that I can still be Compassionate with the ones that have only been here a week or a month etc!

I just Wish For Every WA Member To Succeed In Achieving All Of Their Goals and Then Some!

I like your post very much and agree with you 100%. It isn't always easy for newcomers to comprehend everything right away, especially when they only have used a computer to receive and send emails and nothing else. It can be intimidating to say the least.
Even doing dutiful the courses sometimes doesn't give a quick understanding of all the new terms, rules and language in how to implement the new stuff.
When a more established member will lose its cool by a simple question, than that person should be quiet and saying anything at all.
I guess, psychologically speaking, if we are here for month already or perhaps for years, having awesome computer skills etc. it can become easily for us to take on a kind of an ownership attitude, like owning WA, even though we are aware of it that we don't. We are "just" members like anyone else and this will never change.
However, having awesome skills and talents and contributing them freely here into the WA community is the essence and the heart of it.
This makes WA so awesome to me and after almost 4 month being here I still feel good and happy.
Lets make sure that it will always stay that way. It is certainly our responsibility as a community and as an individual.
Thanks Michael, for bringing it to everyone's attention.

Thanks Michael, I surely see this a lot myself. Although I do feel like sometimes, people do not want to come off as someone who is trying to tell another person that they should know better. Maybe they do this inadvertently, without actually knowing that the other person is offended? Since we all are answering behind a computer screen you never really know whether someone is trying to convey a message in a polite or crude manner. It can be really hard to understand the intended emotion behind a comment at times. However, I digress, you are definitely right, this place is about trying to help others as best as possible, while at the same time helping your very own self as well. You should always try your best to help others in a polite and very welcoming manner. Thank you for sharing this with the community. I do notice that you put a ton of hard work into helping others and your selflessness is much appreciated. You are wonderful part of this community :)

Hey, it might be worth being nice to your readers by splitting up that one big paragraph into several smaller paragraphs :)
