Hello to all the new Whyvillians out there. We all welcome you here
As all other Whyvillians probably know, there is a no
whispering zone in Whyville Square at this point in time. This has gotten
some people a bit mad because they say they have no privacy like they used
Others such as newbies feel differently.
While all the other Whyvillians are whispering the new people don't see
anything. This makes it hard for the newcomers to communicate and ask
questions to more advanced Whyvillians.
If the people of Whyville would be more interested
in the well-being of newbies we would most likely not have this problem.
I know all of us can relate to this because at some point in time we were
all new to Whyville.
I myself had a hard time socializing with others
because they were too busy whispering to their online pals. I feel that
this no-whispering zone will not help the issue that much. It is just
resulting into moving to a different location such as the playground,
sportplatz, or pool.
Just today, I got a y-mail from
a newcomer named dolphina. I was delighted to answer all of her questions
and make her more comfortable with Whyville. Some of the questions that
she asked me where things like:
- How do you get your medals that you earn into the rooms of your house?
- How do I earn more clams to buy things (some of the stuff is expensive)?
I think that we could overcome this issue (making newcomers feel left
out) if we were more into helping them feel as though they do belong.
To all you new Whyvillians, please let other people in
the Square or wherever else
know if you do need help. That is what Whyville is all about. Helping people
out is very important, and we all need to have a sense of belonging. Here is
what two people had to say about the no-whispering zone.
DanceGurl: What do you guys think about the no-whispering
zone in Whyville Square?
AAA54:I think it is ok. I mean it is going to make more
people happy to be on Whyville.
Milkyway: I hate it. I have no privacy and it is getting
I hope you all will understand the purpose of having a no-whispering
zone. To all of you new folks, please feel free to y-mail me. Thank you.
