I really hate to say this.....but I kind of wish there was a set rank number to get before you can post pictures!

And why is that? - DLlovingMommy27  238.0 #1540 8:04PM

I don't mind the thousands of pictures of the castle because honestly it's the castle and just because I have seen it before doesn't mean everyone has. Now the pictures of things outside the park that people put a Mickey in just to justify posting it I could do without lol - Sam241  475.6 #466 8:08PM

Dont hate. Appreciate. Like I appreciate this post and am a believer in what you say. - HotDiggityDogDaddy  1113.5 #172 8:11PM
Or at least a tutorial of what to post and what not to post. I am glad I waited awhile  - minnieMisty  276.9 #1122 8:13PM
I mean after all there's a set rank for MW radio, just a suggestion. - Ms.Mouseketeer  1008.8 #193 8:15PM
I enjoy the hidden Mickey throw up. Makes for good entertainment.  - iFramedRogerRabbit  1957.8 #89 8:17PM
I think it's also a good suggestion just make it a rank lower than mine  and minniemisty i feel like if theres a tutorial ppl would just skip over it  - Evangeline  270.3 #1196 8:18PM

They should just have an "Intro to Mousewait" tutorial with a little quiz that needs to be passed in order to post wait times or to post in the lounge. If there's a quiz, then people won't skip it. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  626.9 #337 8:24PM

It's just been a mess in here past few months, and in BLGs post it explains Flickr, which is a wonderful place @sparrowtime this wasn't posted bc of your pic. - Ms.Mouseketeer  1008.8 #193 8:37PM
Can't say I like the idea. Some newbies post awesome pics. Just an ex as I was scrolling through tonight ortensia(sp)lovedoswald has a low rank but is posting some awesome DLParis pics that I wouldn't have gotten to see if rank was required. My response is just to scroll past the posts I have no interest in. It takes people awhile to learn the norms on here but ignoring it isn't hard and not all newbies need the loss of priveledge - MTLott  88.8 #3841 8:56PM
Agreed, MTlott! - DLlovingMommy27  238.0 #1540 9:04PM
Just because someone has been around long enough to be high on the rank list doesn't mean that they will post a nessasary picture. - Sasha513  286.6 #1035 9:10PM
I agree that posting pictures is a privilege and should be earned. Even if it's a low rank of just 10 or 20 points it forces the new member to get a feel for the lounge and the members before just blindly posting whatever they want. kind of forces a bit of courtesy and consideration. - Zooter  1405.8 #128 9:11PM
Do here's my newbie question. What are good pics and what are bad pics? Just curious? - Chadco  310.9 #883 9:17PM

@Chadco - I did a post about this as a PSA. I'll bump it - BLG  1048.9 #184 9:20PM
Good subject matter is stuff going on at Disneyland, Disney related stuff and some things that help the MW community get to know you better. Good pictures are ones that are in focus, clear and help to get your point across. There is a guide on the resources tab on some keys to taking better pictures. There is detail on the Terms and Conditions link if you need specific clarification. The community is self policing so certain members can remove posts that they deem inadequate. If a post of yours was removed and you disagree, send Admin a note. He'll review and decide if your photo should get reinstated. - Zooter  1405.8 #128 9:23PM
I don't find the pictures to be very bothersome at all. Sure, I'll come across a couple random photos, but it isn't like people are just trying to spam the lounge. They just need to get the hang of it  - pixiedust  134.3 #3029 9:29PM
Zooter could'nt have said it any better, and you can always post to Flickr and all of us can see your pictures, including the wonderful DL Paris pics, if the set rank was enforce. There once was a time that none of us could post pictures!!! - Ms.Mouseketeer  1008.8 #193 9:32PM
If your picture is inappropriate or not disney related at all... it will get reported. If it's Disney related but seen a bazillion times... I just cringe and scroll on. What isn't interesting to me may be cool to someone else. I just wish new people would get a feel for the lounge before they blindly post pictures. - michelledork  696.2 #294 9:32PM
I like the flickr. I am just lazy sometimes and don't go there. Some of the noobs may not know about it. I think the guidelines posted re: picture posting are helpful. It's just too bad some choose not to read them. - MTLott  88.8 #3841 9:38PM
Read FAQ a million times haven't posted any pictures yet just trying to learn hopefully when I do post pictures I'll get the right ones out :) - luvdisney1978  46.9 #5038 9:40PM
It's simple, just stop and think, is this a FaceBook pic or a MW pic. @luvdisney1978 I'm sure I'll do just fine. - Ms.Mouseketeer  1008.8 #193 10:11PM
Cute!!! - Butterlina  1576.4 #112 10:11PM
It's not always the new people, I've seen some random pictures from people who have been on here awhile. Can we all just get along? Just keep scrolling or KINDLY say hey can you post something Disney related next time :) - DisneyVillain  356.0 #676 10:23PM
cute!!! - Butterlina  1576.4 #112 10:24PM
I've been reading all these post about do this don't do that. Enjoy MW!!! We ALL post stuff on here that is not Disney related be it a rookie or a veteran. Pretty soon admin will have to change the name to Mouse Whine!!  - GrumpYchuck  55.3 #4678 10:43PM

I agree with Grumpychuck...if you have more interesting things to post, do it. - Suzie-Q  437.4 #515 10:51PM
Lol again with the picture posting! - PrincessOfTheSouthernIsles  146.5 #2828 10:52PM
@Grumpy You can post ANY topic that is not partnered with a pic in The Hub, but pics should be Disney related. Please read the FAQs or BLGs thread. - LBChica  2543.8 #61 10:52PM
Again can we just kindly say to someone please post something Disney related next time, instead of making several posts about this. This is making fellow MWers feel unwelcome and uneasy. I sure feel that way. Bring the Disney vibe back :) DV out. - DisneyVillain  356.0 #676 11:02PM
@LBChica. We can tell people to do this and that. It's never going to be perfect. We should all just enjoy what MW has to offer and stop complaining - GrumpYchuck  55.3 #4678 11:03PM
I never said it would be perfect. Sorry you feel it as complaining, we're just trying to help Admin out. It's not cool when Admin has to take time away from his family and post long threads "laying the smack down" (as some people call it) when things get out of hand - LBChica  2543.8 #61 11:17PM
@DisneyVillain- you nailed it. It feels a bit "exclusive" around here the last few days, I was hesitant to even post my first RAK yesterday. - TandAlly  213.5 #1871 11:27PM
I agree with grumpy about just enjoying mousewait because it's fun :) I scroll past anything I don't want to see that's easy and I have a great time ! And I don't remember who said it but if it was based on rank we wouldn't see those awesome pics of Disney Paris ! That was a treat to brighten any day :) I mean, we don't see that everyday . - CMMinnieCouture  135.9 #3007 11:27PM
I'm not trying to compare us to animals but it's like letting your pets on your bed. Once or twice is easy to let sly or ignore, but if you let it go on, you could end up at a point where Sparky takes up most of the bed, and that's no bueno - cenicienta  323.8 #806 11:32PM
It's just very sad when the lounge gets inundated with pictures of a spit hidden Mickey or googled pictures and it causes good quality posts and pictures to get pushed so far back they don't get seen or appreciated. Like Cenicienta said, if it doesn't get controlled it gets out if hand. Especially with the community growing so fast. - BLG  1048.9 #184 11:36PM
I'm pretty new here and haven't posted much at all. I've had this app for over a yr but just signed on a week or two ago. The reason I signed up in the first place was becuz I love DL so much and after following MW for a yr. it seemed like everyone on here was one big happy family that I really wanted to be a part of. But after this last week I'm just not feeling that DL magic that I did before and that makes me sad. I'm disappointed an I'm not sure this is for me anymore. :( - DLlover  19.4 #7698 11:45PM
Well put BLG.. I can also say for maybe my second pic I posted I thought it was great and I kinda got some negative reviews then couldn't quite grasp if it was sacasm or not.. I didnt post a pic till a few more days later cuz I too was scared what others would say... - Evangeline  270.3 #1196 11:48PM
Same here @DLlover I've had this for about 6 months and joined last week for the same reasons but am starting to get those exact thoughts and feelings! - EvyJoBonCM  44.9 #5118 11:51PM
Ive been mw foe awhile n dont comment alot. I mostly like to see all about disney n what others e doinf in the park. Im feeling lately that us newbies arent very welcome because we irritate the "vets" or "higher rankers" as ive seem them named. - luvsariel  214.0 #1867 11:51PM
....and I want 2ply at DL.......but it gonna happen - Ms.Mouseketeer  1008.8 #193 11:52PM
There's a Loy of sarcasm here that can get misconstrued. But if you hang in there until you get the feel for things, read the FAQs and some other tips that ppl post to help the community here it's fabulous. I've made some great friends here - and some of them are newer users. Rules are not about upsetting people. It's about common courtesy that helps all users. This is a free app - but we don't ownnit. Admin does. He put the rules there for a reason. They should be respected. And if you feel that's negative then you're not paying attention to the magic that occurs in here every day: RAKs, memories, welcomes, great DLR tips and funny banter. The app will always be what we as users make it or what you as an individual choose to take from it - negative or positive. :) - BLG  1048.9 #184 11:55PM
pardon my typos. Going crosseyed. Break time! :) - BLG  1048.9 #184 11:56PM
I agree with @DisneyVillain - CMWalker  341.4 #725 11:58PM
Well said BLG. Look, we all used to be newbies and may have posted something that shouldn't have been. Us older MWers went a long time without being able to post pics and have seen lots of stuff come through the lounge. We're trying to help you, Admin, and MW. - LBChica  2543.8 #61 11:58PM
- BLG  1048.9 #184 12:00AM
What we beeches see is "they shouldn't post pics" "they should be better at this app" and so on I for one read all the tips and rules and everything so it's disappointing to be thrown in with a few ppl who may not follow the rules or just make simple mistakes like people do. It just seems with all these conplantians like a lot of "vets" don't want new users to be on the app. - EvyJoBonCM  44.9 #5118 12:00AM
Just press the report button n be done. U dont have to post tht this person did this or tell wht irritates u about lwer rankers. It makes others feel unwelcome. Negativity shouldnt be in here. - luvsariel  214.0 #1867 12:03AM
Regardless of rank, what we post demonstrates to new users what's acceptable and as BLG said, with such a fast growing app, it could escalate to a level that wasn't meant for MW - cenicienta  323.8 #806 12:05AM
It kinda sucks that this has to even be a topic. I understand some newbies might not learn as fast as others but that's why we learn what we can. - CMWalker  341.4 #725 12:05AM
who threw you in with those people? I've encourage MANY newbies who've posted GREAT pics. If you've read the rules and FAQs and other tips on picture posting and followed it, then the reminders don't apply to you. They are being posted more lately because they're being ignored more lately - in no small part because this lounge now has 10s of thousands of users and it's growing exponentially because it is SUCH a great community. So as more pics come in more reminders are required. The PSA I posted (which I will now bump) was to specifically clarify for those who are unsure what the pic posting guidelines are and to point them in the direction of a feature of which they may not be aware. It's crazy to take that personally! I don't think it's fair that good posts - by users new or old alike and with or without pictures - should have their posts quickly buried by pictures of spit in the shape of a Mickey or a blurry picture of a light up number in an obscure corner of an attraction. It's just common courtesy for EVERYONE here - how long you've been around has nothing to do with it. - BLG  1048.9 #184 12:06AM
Iyiyiy This is not why I posted this thread, When MW first stared we couldn't post pictures....This is not FaceBook!!! and hear....take some tissues and dry your eyes!!! - Ms.Mouseketeer  1008.8 #193 12:08AM
Cenicienta and BLG couldn't have said it better. @Ms.M Is that 2 ply?  - LBChica  2543.8 #61 12:12AM
I'm pretty sure that the rules aren't what's throwing people off. Sarcasm is an extremely easy thing to misinterpret when you're just reading it, but it seems like us newbies are just expected to "get it". It kinda sucks! I've met some really sweet and helpful people in the last few weeks, and I try to follow suit. But for the 50 things I have figured out on my own with out posting a question, there have been two or three that I did have to post. And l haven't always seen that welcoming helpfulness that I keep hearing about. - TandAlly  213.5 #1871 12:13AM
Honestly i think there are too many mws who r trying to b the admin here. Im just expressing how i feel so mayb these posts of reminders can calm down. Now on with the magic of disney. - luvsariel  214.0 #1867 12:17AM

I could give you a standing ovation BLG ! You're totally right, rank doesn't matter as long as pics add quality so we can all enjoy them as I do. And yeah, new or old, people shouldn't take it personal, or leave the app because there are some amazing people here ! Who are kind and share the magic :) so for those of you who want to leave, give it a second chance and enjoy the positive ! I know I do :) and also, we should be polite to others no matter what even if we are correcting them or telling them about the rules. Just the way I was raised to be polite. BLG and bluefairy are perfect examples of mwers ive seen be very nice when it comes to this! :) I'm sure there are more. - CMMinnieCouture  135.9 #3007 12:22AM

MinnieCouture, I very much appreciate your positive response to my explanations. I really do just want to see this community stay a happy and positive place. And I believe Admin and his very fair guidelines should be respected. :) - BLG  1048.9 #184 12:27AM
@LBchica thanks ! And @BLG I would love to see that too and I agree admin and his fair guidelines should be respected after all he works hard for us and keeps this magic community free :) - CMMinnieCouture  135.9 #3007 12:31AM

Well said BLG. - Missshelly  698.3 #290 12:53AM
I am a newbie, just joined in February. And I have never been made to feel bad by any "vets" on this app. The exact opposite. The vets have all been helpful and I txt quite a few of them often to ask questions. I call them MW tourguides. The magic and genorosity I have experienced first hand since becoming part of the MW family has been amazing!!! And if I miss Seeing some of that magic like the Paris DL pics because of nonsense pics mucking up the lounge it is irritating. And no one is pointing fingers. Don't take anything personal or you will ruin it for yourself. - Mrsblue  693.1 #296 2:04AM
I think it's a bit silly how some MWers are somewhat obsessing over the photo posting guidelines. I don't understand why it is so difficult to simply scroll past those pictures who "lack quality." I understand it could potentially get out of hand, but I have seen some MWers who have been rather rude to others for posting photos. Despite the fact these remarks may just be sarcasm, they appear to be kind of hurtful. Although I haven't experienced it firsthand, I've witnessed other MWers who have felt bad or unwelcome after receiving negative feedback regarding a photo they posted. - pixiedust  134.3 #3029 2:22AM
Admin's app, Admin's guidelines. It shouldn't be seen as negative. Just respectful - BLG  1048.9 #184 2:27AM
Part of the reason is it costs this FREE app $ everytime a pic is posted. So in order to keep the app FREE admin asks these guidelines be followed. I for one don't think it is too huge a request. When you go out and spend thousands of $'s developing and maintaing an app feel free to post pics of spit, boogers, and whatever else you want. This app however belongs to Admin and he has rules in regards ro pic posting. - Mrsblue  693.1 #296 2:29AM
I totally understand that. I just feel like if a veteran feels the need to enforce Admin's rules, they should do so in a less sarcastic manner, for it can be misinterpreted. And sometimes a newbie may not detect any harm in what they are posting (even if they have read the guidelines), so they can't always be at fault. - pixiedust  134.3 #3029 2:34AM
Vets are expected to help enforce Admins rules hence the high rank to be able to report posts. And how about don't give anybody especially someone in an online forum the power to make you feel anyway or scare you off from something you enjoy. - Mrsblue  693.1 #296 2:37AM
I usually just scroll past the pics that I don't care for but I understand where both sides are coming from. There are some cases where I feel the poster is just spamming the lounge with picture thinking that will improve their rank while some picture are really enjoyable. It's not a matter of people being new but people being courteous. Follow the rules set forth in the FAQ and there wouldn't be any problem. The rules are there so everyone (vets and noobs) can enjoy this awesome community. Also, pictures do take up more bandwidth so spamming the lounge with pics might bring back the great MW outage of march. - JediStitch  429.7 #525 2:39AM
here's the thing - "veteran" has only come into use recently. The pic guidelines are to make this place better for everyone. My very carefully worded PSA and other comments I've made have been clear yet concise. Just as all newbies don't want to be lumped in as annoying, all "veterans" don't want to be accused of "obsessing" or "negative" because they try to orient MWers to how things work around here. Admin actually relies on us to show others the ropes because his time is constantly used improving the app and dealing with other things behind the scenes. No one is saying that newbies are "always at fault" - but how can they know if no one points them in the right direction? That's my point. I don't see how it keeps getting turned into something else. - BLG  1048.9 #184 2:39AM
JediStitch - exactly. That's what mrsblue and I both were saying. Some newbies come in and almost ALL their posts are picture posts - which would be fine if they were something like real-time pics - but more often they are googled pics or random stuff that adds no value whatsoever - for anyone. - BLG  1048.9 #184 2:41AM
I'm sorry if it seems like I'm trying to turn your words around /: I totally get where you're coming from. All I'm saying is I've noticed some blunt comments floating around and things sometimes appear a bit tense between the "noobs" and "vets." - pixiedust  134.3 #3029 2:47AM

pixiedust, sadly that is always going to happen in a public forum to one degree or another. Compared to most forums - even (especially) Disney ones - this one is pretty good most of the time. And with RAKs and other great stuff in here, the MW lounge is easily the best there is (just for the record, I am in Australia and have not vested interest in the app) - BLG  1048.9 #184 2:49AM

Hahahaha! love it! - Becky.Boops  64.0 #4411 3:12AM
I think very often people get excited about things and want to share. That's cool. However, in this age of instant gratification, we are apt to misplace our common sense. Sometimes posting a picture is simply unnecessary. Before posting an image, think if this is something other people would want to see, something that hasn't been posted ad nauseum, or that you yourself would even bother to stop scrolling to see. If so, let 'er rip! You'll discover soon enough if your instincts were right.  - bluefairy  643.8 #323 3:15AM
This is an interesting post, and I understand the frustration with some of the pictures entered on MW. First of all, I really enjoy this app, and the MW's who share their wonderful DL experiences through both their stories and photos for those of us who don't have easy access to the parks. Without these stories, for example, I wouldn't know about all these amazing CM's who work at the park, receive advice on what to see or do, when I finally do get to the park, and most importantly, make myself a better person. I find myself on a daily basis trying to incorporate the kindness found on MW. For example, I now do RAK's at work, or when a see a child upset at the supermarket, I always make sure I have something on me help to cheer them up and help their mom/dad through that difficult time. I know it's something small, but I would have never started doing this without reading about it from this amazing MW family. I know that from now on, when I do create a post with a picture, it will be something for others to ENJOY, because, isn't that what we all really want to see? Sure every family has a tiff every once and a while, but that's what makes a family stronger. Good night, and I look forward to another exciting day of MW tomorrow. - proudcanuck  478.6 #462 3:35AM
Since ideas are being thrown out, maybe a lounge for just the "vets" so they don't have to slum it and be bothered with the people who are finding their way on this app. Not trying to be ugly but the comments about whining and needing a tissue (whether sarcastic or not) are exactly why some people don't feel welcomed around here - MommaSquared  10.3 #11146 8:59AM
We've discussed lots of rules recently, like RAKs and reporting them to Admin for a boost in rank. I think there is a difference in kindly educating newer people, who in their enthusiasm, may not understand each rule as opposed to being blunt, sarcastic, etc. It's hard to decide what is considered quality content when you haven't been here long. I hate that people may feel a difference between veterans and newer members and especially if they are mentioning it in the rankings. - ally  509.0 #18 9:11AM
@BLG - I concur. Wannabe "hidden mickeys" and crotch shots just push the quality back. I think people post this stuff cause they're not at the parks often and want to feel like they're part of it. Or they just like the comments. Idk but the non hidden mickeys and pjs and all that doesn't need to be on here because I don't see how it helps anyone out. - PrincessOfTheSouthernIsles  146.5 #2828 9:15AM
Seriously?? Drama drama drama. Some people just feel they have to be in charge and some are too easily offended. Just think before you post. - angryduck  131.9 #3073 9:16AM
I am a newer MWr and post like this make me feel unwelcome. The comments about posting bad pictures are getting just as annoying as the bad pictures. I thought this was a place for Disney lovers to unite. Not divide. - JessicaRabbit33  670.3 #311 9:20AM

This will always be an issue because what seems of "value" to one person may not to another. I'll prob get attacked for this..but for example, pennywise. I don't know the story of him like most people, but it obviously seems "of value" to higher ranked MWrs. Honestly, even if I knew the story, I don't think it is Disney related. Newer people who see pennywise's pic r prob wondering y it is in the lounge. People look at it as just a random pic and think it's ok to post similar pics. There def is some questionable pics in the lounge. (I have posted pics that I am embarassed of also) But i just scroll past it. Maybe making another lounge isn't a bad idea. If not for higher ranks, then one for lower ranks. With all the people here, everyone will not agree on what makes a pic "of value." I don't think anyone is trying to break admins rules. It's just difference of opinion. - Disneyaddict  374.7 #621 9:43AM
Seems like the only people that would want this are the old school super high rank people. It takes zero effort to not look at a picture, let it be I like seeing everyones stuff so stop trying to ruin it. Also don't act like we want to see your pictures eveytime - goofyatheart  1.9 #60975 9:53AM
I agree.. well said pixiedust. Jessicarabbit n mwaddict! - luvsariel  214.0 #1867 9:53AM
I agree with you MWaddict, there's always going to be difference of opinions... Unfortunately not everyone is going to agree. Therefore comment on what interests you, and scroll past those that don't. The pictures will usually appeal to somebody. In the voice of Thumper: "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it at all"   I see everyone's point and get where you all are coming from, let's just move on. - BriHizzle  374.8 #620 9:55AM

I didnt read the whole thread but I just wanted to add that if u don't like the pic just scroll by it, if someone is spamming the lounge report it. As long as it's Disney related at least they're following the rules. Erin posted a non disney pic the other day and I made a comment on it asking how it was Disney related, to which the response was that Erin doesn't have to follow the rules. So I could see how newbies could be confused and wonder why some ppl can post non Disney pics and they can't. But it just goes to show that even higher ranked MWers forget (or don't follow) the rules sometimes.  - RickeyCalifornia  158.1 #2637 9:58AM

I think every picture posts quality content no sarcasm. I really havent seen a picture that screams "report me!" - Madi  204.1 #1996 10:12AM
Just to remind people BLG ISNT Admin she didn't create the app, heck she didn't the create the rules. Now I get it there are some weird pics.But it's not up to you to tell someone they can't post a pic now I have read the rules-FAQ, and the PSA but it seems to me that you need to read those rules again because I have seen dumb pic ex " i was emptying out my purse the change magically turned into little Mickey heads I wonder if that's a sign" that's just dumb or as you guys would say "poor quality" so you're probably thinking why was that posted by a veteran who dislikes pointless pics but posted this and didn't get in trouble but if I was to post this I would get in trouble. So in conclusion of this probably clumsy comment don't say I hate pointless pics yet you post anyways - Sagittarian  3.9 #25183 10:18AM

Normally I scroll past these political posts. It's best moving on instead of keeping an emotional thread a hot topic. This one I just can't. I understand where ms mouseketeer is coming from, but also feel unwelcome as others have mentioned, simply because I have only been active on MW less than a year. Does that make me a non-vet too? What about those new members that are at the park for their first time and want to share the magic? I'm definitely not one of the popular members, but always enjoy pics and updates on the park. Sometimes I feel like it is a popularity contest with who gives away the most RAKs. I would want others to know me as a nice guy, not by someone who gives away a lot. Sometimes I even wonder what the giveaways have to do with Disneyland - just because it is Disney??? It's a great family here. I hope I can continue to feel welcome, without knowing the secret handshake. - Mouse92im  256.0 #1333 10:38AM
RAKs are about KINDNESS, randomly I might add. It has nothing to do with popularity or points! I've done quite a few RAKs but that doesn't make me any more or less popular. Actually I've been seeing a lot of newbies giving away RAKs. - PrincessOfTheSouthernIsles  146.5 #2828 10:43AM
Yes it makes you a non vet. But you can be my wingman any day. - HotDiggityDogDaddy  1113.5 #172 10:45AM
I have to say I don't mind with the pictures. If i'm not interested i just keep scrolling. I do agree with some others that the sarcasm and rude comments are becoming a problem. I love sarcasm, but I have seen a few comments that have been pretty degrating and it makes me feel uncomfortable to post anything. It's disappointing because this group was so great. - Nikkia2020  7.2 #14253 10:50AM
@h3d oh I know, only reason I asked was cos I thought it was somewhere in the park that I had never seen, I'm just saying I can see why ppl get confused when they see exceptions for certain ppl - RickeyCalifornia  158.1 #2637 10:53AM
I think we just need to keep in mind that many of us new users have never met another MW'er so all the sarcasm and jokes won't be seen as funny coming from someone you don't know - macyDarling  18.1 #7991 10:53AM
I don't know some of our political leaders, but I laugh at just about everything they say. - HotDiggityDogDaddy  1113.5 #172 10:55AM
Oh good grief guys. This has nothing to do with rank or being a "vet" or "newbie". Please read the FAQs Admin compiled and do your best to abide by these. No, BLG is not Admin, but as mentioned before those of us that have been around for awhile have seen lots of stuff come through the lounge and we are simply reminding everyone to help maintain this wonderful and free app that Admin created - LBChica  2543.8 #61 10:56AM

@Sagittarian you only post on voitile threads. BLG's pic was a joke! Making fun of all of the fake hidden mickeys. And Idk the story behind Penneywise but he's funny! Geez. - Mrsblue  693.1 #296 11:01AM
@Nikkia - I completely agree. The (maybe not intentional) rude comments can really put some people down. I've seen people feel genuinely bad for posting a photo that other MWers were quick to shoot down with their sarcasm. Also, some MWers feel like they are bound to their duty in making the lounge a better place, thus giving them the right to post negative feedback. I'm sorry if I'm offending anyone, this is just how I perceive things lately  - pixiedust  134.3 #3029 11:03AM

I think the point of having a certain rank/point to post pics is to avoid discussions like this. If the rank/point thing is in place, it means the person posting has been around for a while and has a better grasp of what is "of value" for the lounge. - JediStitch  429.7 #525 11:13AM
I didn't realize that posting on an internet forum and updating wait times at disneyland made one a good photographer.... Hmm!!! - candymation  286.1 #1037 11:14AM

Why does the quote "Every time I argue with a fool, I lose." keep coming to mind when I see these threads. - DesperateMousewife  877.4 #214 11:21AM
I think this is about newbie vs vet. When a new person innocently does something "wrong " on here all the vets attack! It is very off-putting. The rules stretch so much for some but others get stones thrown at them right away. It seems like they don't want this to be a public app but a private one that requires membership. It's very hard to express sarcasm in writing only so what one thinks is harmless another might be offended and leave the app. Rant Over! - calpolyDLlover  252.6 #1363 11:26AM
They should change the battle scene in POTC to MWs fighting over picture posting. "Where be the newbie that be posting that picture?" "Don't tell him MM. Don't be cheeeeeekin!" - PrincessOfTheSouthernIsles  146.5 #2828 11:26AM
Dang. Everyone needs to calmmmm down and remember why were all here. Is this a politics app???? I don't think so. Thus is MW so,EVERYONE lets keep it that way. - kristian  2004.9 #86 11:26AM
I second LBchica . And it's not about the rank. It's sad that sometimes great quality pics get backed up a few pages by bad quality pics. I believe BLG mentioned something like that and she's right. doesn't matter your rank at all. Some people are rude, but I mean to both sides, let's not spam the lounge and keep it as amazing as it's been so we can all get a chance to see quality and let's not eat people who don't post quality, let's be polite. Yay! :) - CMMinnieCouture  135.9 #3007 11:27AM
...and then we went to the surface, and this seagull came, and he was like, "this is this, and that is that." To all who come to this happy place, welcome. Mousewait is your wait... No that doesn't quite work. Hmm. Okay, seriously, I think if this post had just been a simple reminder about the rules no one would be arguing. But since it started with the idea of banning new users from posting photos before they reached a certain rank, it comes across as unfriendly to the new people. If Admin ever does consider a different lounge I hope it is for photos only, cause I would rather look at pictures than read some of the same posts over and over again. Love, GhostHost xoxo - ghosthost  338.0 #739 11:36AM
The way I look at it is this: if the first time I ever came into the lounge I saw page after page of people with their mouths open, pjs, stains on the floor that are hidden mickeys, etc. I would have deleted it right then and there. Don't lose sight of the fact that this app is part of a business for Admin, and he has to compete with other chat sites that have stricter rules and more drama than you can imagine. How can it be that the lounge is making a good impression if you just see crap? The people who can report keep the content quality for ADMIN. Not to police 'newbs'. Also, have you ever joined a chat room and instantly been part of the regulars? Probably not, so why would that happen here? I'm not a vet, but I've seen how amazing the long standing members are and how they love it here. So many og members don't even come in anymore. Join a conversation. If you see pennywise, chalk it up to something you weren't around for, and stop being butt hurt if you don't get the joke or if someone does not like your picture. - Missshelly  698.3 #290 11:38AM
Alright I am a newbe as you say. Haven't posted anything yet I haven't hD the time but now I am fearful of all the MW critics. Reading all this post makes me uneasy and double think weather I want to continue to visit MW wait . Which I have enjoyed . I have read the rules and FAQ and I am sure that it is stated to keep all MW talk positive . This is not the first me post were I find negativity and people arguing with each other sure hope it stops. I gonon MW to get my usney fix when u am missing disney and cheer up. This post doesn't cheer me up at all. I know you all love MW but about the pics let admin take care of if if they deem it not MW worthy than let them deal with just saying. To all that defended the newbeies and MW positive tule thank you - sylviamta  16.1 #8495 11:40AM

I have to agree I get uneasy about posting things to. I just posted a picture of bag my cousin made for me to take to Disneyland but I have to say I was very worried about posting it. I wasn't sure if it would make people mad I posted it. It seems silly to get so mad someone posts a picture. This is suppose to be fun not so negative. - Mrstefer  116.6 #3354 11:48AM

I am an OG member of MW and I would like to address the "Newbs" like Mrstefer and Silviamta. Don't be afraid to post! But also, don't take yourself so seriously that if your post is made fun if or your picture gets comments on, that you get offended. This is a wonderful, Magical app. Those if us on here love MW, it's creator, and Disney. But we are all also a little off. How many times have we heard new members say that they finally found a place were people understand their obsession with Disney. We are all a little off our rocker, therefore, are humor can be a little wrong as well. If your posts gets alot if comments, good or bad, that means we are interested in what you have to say or what you are showing us. You got our attention, and we will remember you. So please, post, show pictures, comment... But don't take yourself, or your posts, so serious that you can't laugh along with us if we find it funny. - OutNumberedMom  813.2 #234 7:35PM

MouseWait COUNTDOWN for iOS is here! Countdown the days to your next Disneyland or Disney World trip with our images OR your pics! Your Countdown also displays on Apple Watch and is beautiful on iPhone 6 screens. Secure the discounted launch price for a limited time.

So from the looks of it, there is not even one app made for those of us on android. You know there are millions of people who do not own iPhones. Its kind of rediculous these days not to offer an android version of apps. Would love to help this site grow by donating, but I see no point in that when there appears to be no intrest by the app builders here to support android. I mean how about atleast a partialy functional app so we can feel that the android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community. I see lots of requests and sad posts about no android, but dont see any replys by the site to the fact that anyone is even working on it.I've checked back here every so offten to see if there is anything for android users, but never bothered joining until today.I just wanted to rant a little, and now I am done.Unfortunalty, at this point I think I am officaily giving up on mousewait. Thanks for reading  and understanding my frustrations ( i hope ) and please everyone........Have a Disney-tastic day!Mark - molney14u  0.1 #105817 11:05AM
I have an iPhone and an old droid. I use the old droid for wait times when my iPhone can't connect and it works fine.

Get a quick overview of the new features in MouseWait 9 for iOS, our biggest update since 2009! Get the free version here, or upgrade to Platinum here

Just installed the MW app on my new phone yesterday. This will be very helpful for me since I am used to the android version. Thank you. - teapotsandteacups  469.9 #477 11:41PM

Did you know that almost everything in MouseWait can be found with a few taps in the MagicSearch bar? Did you know that we add things to MagicSearch weekly (i.e. requests from you--see below)? MagicSearch enables ONE-THUMB searching to help you find individual menu items, vegetarian or gluten free food, reviews, wait times (even restaurant wait times), exclusive insider Disneyland tips, annual pass holder, parking info, Star Wars Park info, celebrities, Disneyland news, Hidden Mickeys, crowd forecasts (unFORECAST), Photopass, birthdays, refurbishment info, and amazing content from almost a million pages of original content in the MouseWait Lounge. 

This is an  app. Thank you @@@Admin - LiveLaughLoveDisney  297.6 #0 2:46PM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the month of May 2016
The last few weeks have been relatively quiet, but we will see crowds rise as we get to the end of May, especially toward the end of the month when Grad Nite begins. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the high 70s (approx 70% capacity), then the Crowd Index rose to the 80s toward the end of the month. Remember, we've seen larger crowds ever since the 60th Celebration began, so keep that in mind when looking at historical Crowd Index data. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin May 9, 2016 5:42PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  643.2 #324 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7430 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  442.1 #511 7:32AM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  176.1 #2346 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  271.1 #1183 5:04PM
