After reading a review in the app store that specifically called me (and a few other mwers) out directly, I just wanted to post a little something. Even though I joke and kid with you guys on here, this is still a community and you guys are a big part of my life. If I offend you or you truthfully feel like I am rude or mean, please contact me privately. I hate to see awful reviews in the app store in general, then to see my name attached to it just sealed the deal. I dont want people to feel like I am unapproachable at the parks or meetups. I am quite the opposite. So remember, nobody can ruin your experience on mw but yourself. If you dont like someones posts.. block them, create your own feed, etc. Admin worked hard to make the lounge customizable for us so take advantage of it! :)

Thanks md :) *hands you a churro* - misschurro  6362.1 #17 11:09AM
Well said =) And BTW peeps, mdork is a sweetheart - LBChica  2437.4 #59 11:10AM

Oh man.. A churro sounds sooo good!! - michelledork  696.2 #281 11:12AM
 love you Michelle - Dizkid  457.8 #474 11:14AM
I can't wait to meet you! - vegasbrat  420.4 #530 11:18AM
Aww dizkid!! Cant wait to see you again! @vegasbrat.. We should have gotten togehter when auz and I were in vegas! - michelledork  696.2 #281 11:27AM
i just read the reviews and i can only speak for myself on here but I have never had a personal problem with someone directly but i have seen plenty of what those reviews were talking about. it does bother me when people get made fun of and Michelle, this isn't directed towards you but just in general. its really a shame to me that just because someone is new or doesn't know better or even if we don't all share the same opinion, they do get a lot of attention directed to them. blocking and ignoring the situation doesn't make it go away, it just makes you blind to it. for myself, I chose to TRY and not let it bother me and for the most part I keep scrolling but there are times when I get defensive and I just can't help it. it's upsetting because I wanted to fit in with everyone since it's been almost a year for me here but I can't seem to make a connection with everyone. I am how ever, glad I have met some great people on here and hope to make new friends :) - mochamistie  273.2 #1136 11:36AM
That is very sad. I hate to see bad reviews for MW, but you're right that if someone has a problem with you they should talk to you about it personally. I've never seen you say anything rude, but I understand that some people only see what they want when they read posts & comments. I still love you michelledork! - VikkiMouse  182.2 #2224 11:50AM
My phone wants to do updates that I don't want it to do, so I'm staying out of the market. There shouldn't be anything negative and fortunately those who are here and active know what's true - 415beachgirl  475.6 #447 11:56AM
I think of it like going to a new school.... Some people are immediately on the defense. They feel left out bc of the friendships, inside jokes, etc already happening. They don't understand the humor of some people. Then, from the other point of view, everyone is leery of someone news intentions, etc. It's no different in the real world... It's just harder on here bc there's less interaction. I do understand what you guys mean by new people not feeling welcomed... Unfortunately, that happens everywhere. I'm not condoning it, I'm just saying it's one of those things that's sooo hard to get rid of no matter how hard we try. Once one "meanie" leaves, another takes their place. The main purpose of me posting this was just so new mwers and even veterans don't feel like they can't say hi. I don't want new people to join already thinking I'm a jerk, without even knowing me. - michelledork  696.2 #281 12:00PM
Let me start off by say mdork is one of the nicest MWers I've had the pleasure of befriending. The problem that I see nowadays is that new members jump right into the lounge without lurking and getting the feel of the lounge. It's easy to decipher a playful sarcastic comment as "rude". - iFramedRogerRabbit  1957.8 #84 12:07PM
Making a decision on what a person is truly like before you meet them is a big mistake. I'm hoping I get to meet you someday soon, michelledork! Then I'll decide if you're a jerk or not!! ;-) - Gia  802.0 #231 12:09PM
Thanks IFRR :) - michelledork  696.2 #281 12:39PM
On a positive note, on the Canadian MW App store, there has not been any negative responses other than someone stating that the MW app continues to freeze after 5 seconds. That was back in March. Cheers MW! - proudcanuck  478.6 #445 12:55PM
I hate to see reviews based on the users of the app rather than the merits of the app itself. Sorry to hear you were called out directly in a review. - LilSterner  5455.2 #20 1:05PM
I feel bad that you were called out and several other users were as well...kinda sad they felt the need to do that to admin without coming to you first...Michelle you are one of my favorites and have ALWAYS been nice to me.. even as a newbie....that person should be ashamed of themselves for such a cowardly act... - iyuzMickey  515.9 #406 1:13PM
I'm sorry you were called out! That's childish... I can't believe what someone said about Admin?!? Really?! He does nothing?! He's created this amazing app for all of us Disney lovers to enjoy. If people have a problem with it they should just move on. - Madysmommy  151.5 #2691 1:16PM
I can't wait to meet you Michelle! I'm not a newbie, but I feel a little disconnected just because I have never met any of you... :) but that's crazy that they called you out in the app store  - ekwhite  473.0 #452 1:21PM
I havent had any bad experiences, however, I have felt very bad for some people on here. I am a very sensitive person and would be so upset to be treated the way I've seen a few people be treated. It's the ganging up on someone that I feel sad about. I haven't seen Michelle do anything, and I'm not keeping track. I would love to meet the original group, and I'm sure they would be very nice to me. However, if someone didn't like me I think I would just have to leave the app because I'm not thick skinned. I hope you understand what I'm saying. - mommyneedsavacation  148.1 #2739 1:56PM
I've never felt attacked or bullied myself and I've never seen any posts of yours that came across as mean Michelledork. I have a pretty sarcastic sense of humor though. I have seen quite a few new people who have been ridiculed by several OGs and it makes me feel sad for them. There is one of the people mentioned who drama seems to follow a lot. I don't have a problem with her but she seems to be the one common denominator when drama erupts. I don't post much but I've been lurking since November of 09 so I feel like I kind of know a lot of the OGs posting styles. I think anytime you have this many people together, you're going to have personality conflicts and you gave good advice Michelle when you said people should customize MW to what fits them. I've always thought you were friendly, welcoming, and funny. When I don't like something, most of the time I just try to keep scrolling :) - Hesatalkintome  29.0 #6092 6:58PM
Thats horrible that they specified names of MW'ers. Don't let those ppl get to you! You know you are all wonderful people and lots of us here know u guys are awesome! - Principessa  324.4 #780 7:18PM
I enjoyed it. Made me feel famous!!! - Katrayher  781.0 #239 7:28PM
Wow. That's sad that someone would specifically target you and other MWers. I look forward to your posts and hope to meet you all in the parks one day. I didn't read the review, but it seems like they're the one with the problem! - Disneykidds_HaveWeMet  181.9 #2230 7:35PM
I haven't met you in person yet, but I get your sense of humor. I think you are very nice and to the point with your informative posts. I hope to be able to meet you soon. Will you be at the birthday in Oct? - DizGeek  453.6 #483 7:43PM
Don't you love that they even mentioned penny wise?!? Even tho I hate that clown it's an honor he was mentioned!  - mozbaby  132.2 #3011 7:46PM
If you're not careful, Penny will show up to collect his accolades. Beep beep. - Experiment818  1647.2 #101 7:52PM
Wow! I didn't realize anyone was mentioned by name. I wonder if that happened because I urged people to post positive reviews after the negative ones I saw yesterday? I hope not. I just wanted people to post what it's really like here. I mean I feel like a total outsider...but you can't dispute the friendships I've noticed here. If people don't like the lounge then just use the other aspects of the app! I love this place...but there is so much more to this app!!! :-) - ythdudette  1511.8 #112 9:08PM
Don't listen to @Disneykidds...she's a brown noser!......ROTFLOL....J/K...I yuz her...yuz you too michelle =o] - iyuzMickey  515.9 #406 9:21PM
Yuzzzz - michelledork  696.2 #281 10:42PM
I was new and I always felt welcome. Michelle has always been sweet and has always interacted with me in a fun, and kind manner. I don't think it's right to call people out directly, just because you may or may not feel part of the group. Not everyone gets along, not everyone has too, but I've never seen Michelle be mean to anyone. She's the sweetest dorkjerk ever~  - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #135 10:48PM
Michelle is one of the nicest MWrs out there. The lounge is like the tide with new people coming in, just read the posts get the idea of the app down and focus on the one thing in common: its all about Disney! - Plumiegirl  10135.2 #8 10:58PM
You are the cutest dork ever! Having said that, this was nicely put! Jerk. ;o) - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz  1190.7 #145 10:59PM
I just read the reviews. Mostly positive. Some people don't like OG clicks. I feel sorry for the newbies that see people that were here a long time as if they are freshmen in school and OGs as seniors. Just look at the friendships made and how MWers in the park get together through the Lounge. It is a special love for Disney. I wish everyone feels welcome here. - E-Ticket  1466.8 #115 11:14PM
I haven't been on long. Have yet to meet fellow MWer. When I first post made newbie error asked question right away without saying hi. But when health issue put me down MW picked me up. Those that are called OG's commented on what's my status, have they heard from me, how am I doing. And then after I posted out of Hospital doing good. Those that have points beyond newbie dreams, famous post made here everyday and those that contribute to this FAMILY more than we know. Those were the ones that posted glad to hear, get well,were here for you. And that what I think of everyone here as, a FAMILY. Were all not gonna agree, inside jokes happen between certain peolple, tones took out of context. But at end of day all DISNEY was created with families in mind as well as this APP. - Cricket  224.4 #1676 12:05AM

Michelle is very sweet! I noticed you were a kind person right away the first time Met you. - Tom  11116.2 #6 12:12AM
Hey ZJ! - michelledork  696.2 #281 1:00AM
That's ridiculous! Why are people calling others out in reviews...get a life people! This is in app not your real life, I promise you can control it lol. I am sad this happened to you :( - MouseketeerforShort  340.3 #703 1:07AM
@chip If you have an issue, feel free to message me if you need any clarification or if you just feel like sucking on my left toe. Either one works for me! Idk if I can clarify at the same time as the toe thing though, that's way distracting. - michelledork  696.2 #281 1:08AM
I can't believe that anyone would refer to someone specific in a review. Good Lord... you're reviewing the APP, not the people who post on it! And bottom line...IMO it's like complaining about a TV show. If you don't want to watch, change the channel! I've never met you michelledork, but I like your sense of humor, or maybe I should say that I get your sense of humor. :) - msdizmaui  716.8 #270 1:11AM
Haters gonna hate. Stay cute, Michelle :) - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #197 1:13AM
People always have to complain about something - jon-t  190.5 #2108 1:20AM
True dat Jon t... Then you'll have people like me who complain about the people who always have something to complain about  - michelledork  696.2 #281 1:22AM
Heck I'm a bitter person. Yet nothing you all do makes me feel bitter. - jon-t  190.5 #2108 1:24AM
Michelle this person who posted this probably contributes nothing to mousewait!!! And FYI to anyone who writes anything negative this is a social lounge people can write what they want and that's that. You are supposed to review the app not the people. If it were a review for facebook would u write that people don't like u on there either'n!!!! Sorry about my rant. PUI:). Um u contribute to MW michelle . Like the walk u are doing at Disneyland and contributing to autism research! So nice of you  - mozbaby  132.2 #3011 1:26AM

I am offended by your post ;-) - SpencerPhreak  114.6 #3339 1:37AM
