23. MW101 w/SICπŸ€: {Photo etiquette} We've been seeing for some time now in the lounge, that we have become a little sloppy with the MW Rules and FAQs---that we are all so quick to tell new users to read. I thought it would be nice to review what Admin asks of us when it comes to posting photos. πŸ”΄We are asked to refrain from posting photos that are not ours. I understand that we all often post something from the Disney Parks blog or the like when reporting exciting up coming events or news. In this case it is vital that we give credit where it is due. Not giving credit for others photos could cause problems for MW. πŸ”΄Please remember that when posting more then one photo that is ether not yours or that is not live, please consider using photo collage apps (PicStich, Diptic and many others. They are great fun! haha). : ) πŸ”΄We LOVE live photos and would hate for the efforts of those in the parks to get pushed to the next page and might not be seen. It states in the Rules and FAQs that any post not following the rules can and will be removed. Thank you so much for your time!! : )

LittleMermaidLover, I understand where you're coming from but inside jokes and friendships are why most of us stick around this app! (And why soooo many others have left...they want to joke around with their friends and are a little annoyed by people constantly telling them to not act like friends) the thing is...a lot of us have become friends. Real life friends! I'd say if it makes you feel excluded, maybe ask! or like Friendly Mouse says, do a little research! I joined just under a year ago, didn't get a lot of the banter but enjoyed people's personalities so much that I made an effort to figure it out. I guess I'm trying to say that the lounge would be a boring, vanilla place if no one could ever mention a funny thought, inside joke or mention something funny from the past. Is that how you are with your friends?!? We've actually gone through a lot together!! Every single one of us is waiting with open arms for a new person to bond with and share things with...you just have to be willing to bend a tiny bit and shake things off sometimes. I really don't think that's too much to ask. - MissMolly  1266.5 #109 3:22PM

Well said, Miss Molly!! I only get to DLAND once a year. I love getting on this site and living vicariously through those who are there! - SmallWorldSister  11.0 #9036 8:11PM
I like wine 🍷 and thanks, SmallWorldSister - MissMolly  1266.5 #109 8:18PM
Trust me I don't take it personally! Like I posted to meridafan, I was just posting an observation that's all. Everyone has chimed in with their observations so I was doing the same thing since everyone is so open here. Just wanted my opinion heard which I don't think is asking much either 😊 - LittleMermaidLover  290.1 #881 10:17PM

Can we also add that not every post needs a picture?!?! - LilSterner  4733.2 #19 12:30AM
Please!!!!! - DisneyFanZoe  1111.4 #138 9:09AM
And now ban Throwback Thursday too? That's what Instagram is for. Just creates too many posts to sift through. - LilSterner  4733.2 #19 9:47AM
Yes and yes! - cesium55  531.6 #343 9:50AM
I'll add it 😊 - Sweet_Irish_Cream  3929.1 #25 10:28AM
I love the addition of the dots too. Helps to emphasize the different points! - LilSterner  4733.2 #19 12:36PM
Maybe we need another retro pic day for everyone to get it out of their systems. - Armenda  1135.8 #131 9:13PM
Oh I would love a Retro Pic day! Great idea! - Scrumpy_N_PansShadow  36.6 #4951 1:28AM
I also think that when a new person asks a question, people shouldn't jump in with their witty answers that are inside jokes only certain members know. Sometimes I see a question I also would like to know about but people start doing their banter back and forth with their friends completely ignoring the question - LittleMermaidLover  290.1 #881 2:46PM
Like someone saying Buttercup? Sorry I do agree but I just could not help myself. A lot of these "inside" jokes are all posted on mousewait. I normally will try and search to find out what they are talking about if I was not on at the time that said event occurred. - friendlymouse  727.7 #224 2:56PM
That is just going to happen on any social media, and it is best just to take it as good fun. some people take it personal when it is not, many people here have known each other for years so they joke. best to have a great sense of humor and join right in. I have read my share of posts wrong before too and almost (i did say almost,lol) got butthurt but I realized I needed to just read for awhile. and if someone wants to make fun of me, thanks, it will make me laugh too. don't worry, all new people eventually learn all the fun stuff, that is why it is so cool that this app teaches us all so much. - secretagentangel  1324.6 #104 2:59PM
I agree it is going to happen regardless and I'm not hurt at all, just wanted to remind everyone it can make people feel excluded! Maybe just acknowledge the question at least before going off on random tangents? - LittleMermaidLover  290.1 #881 3:08PM
I think we are a bit of a random tangent type of group, lol, but answering the question first is always best, then the person asking can either read the rest or go read the next post. - secretagentangel  1324.6 #104 3:11PM
But unless we all remain perfect strangers with no attempt at getting to know one another or forming friendships, this is really a given. And most of that back and forth stuff generally is under one thread, so if you don't understand, it is easy to just skip over. I don't understand some stuff sometimes (Shh! Don't tell my husband or kids I said that!), but I either figure I don't have to understand everything, or I could ask a question to help me understand. Anyway, don't know if I'm helping or not, but we're all human and none of us is perfect. We're just doing the best we can. - MeridaFan  3466.9 #28 4:39PM
I totally get that meridafan, and I agree. I was just voicing an observation I've made just like others have done about what photos should or shouldn't be posted. As a newbie, it's hard to feel like I can jump in sometimes. Thank you for posting a respectful response! - LittleMermaidLover  290.1 #881 5:38PM
Also see my response above :) πŸ‘† - MissMolly  1266.5 #109 7:33PM
I understand this totally. I asked what "RAK" was because I couldn't find it in the MW FAQS. Some of the responses, not all, were sarcastic as if I was supposed to know. - Tinkerluvr  83.3 #3670 8:34PM

Am I the only one who can just scroll past the things I don't care to see and move on? I know there are rules for a reason but it isn't going to ruin my mood if I see someone posting a photo that isn't live or seen as acceptable. - lizzie2thelou  48.9 #4455 5:47PM
I scroll past things I do not care to see either. - VfxGenie  1509.0 #90 5:54PM
So do I,or just RP remove post option. I've done that a few times. - MarshaMouse  4074.5 #24 5:56PM
Love your profile picture - MarshaMouse  4074.5 #24 5:56PM
If you think I do these for my own benefit, you are greatly mistaken! These are meant to be helpful tips and reminders on how to use MW! And these are supported by Admin. You could have just scrolled by this as well! πŸ˜„ - Sweet_Irish_Cream  3929.1 #25 5:58PM
It's hard to scroll past when the whole first page violates this and MW I loading slowly to get to more posts - cesium55  531.6 #343 6:08PM

after scrolling through the lounge this morning i've come to the realization that 100% of the people who need to read this have not. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 8:31AM
So it's ok to post my picture of a coffee spill I had yesterday that formed a hidden mickey? 😝 - Waites4DodgerEars  973.1 #164 8:42AM
you can just directly text me that picture. haha. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 8:44AM

Do it! It was the most awesome! - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4702.3 #20 9:54AM
I relized that a long time ago πŸ˜”. Figures πŸ˜„. But it's still good to post so when we delete thir post we can go, "bump. See, it was posted and clearly stated in the rules!" Haha πŸ˜„ - Sweet_Irish_Cream  3929.1 #25 10:22AM
A 100% is a lot. It assumes facts not in evidence. I for one did read the rules because they suggest it for your 1st introductory post. I was welcomed and complimented on my 28yrs as a guest. - Midasgold  584.2 #303 7:20PM
and if you read the date on these posts you would realize this is from six months ago and that the rules of the lounge have change since then. thanks for reading them though. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 10:46PM
@Midasgold If I may make a suggestion, you may want to just pause a moment before posting or maybe just read through the lounge some because you are coming across in a way that you may not realize is not positive. Just a helpful suggestion. - MrsSchnooks  2925.2 #37 10:58PM
A pleasant reminder - thank you :) I know that I have other apps (Instagram, Facebook occasionally) that I can spam with non-live photos (and I do, frequently) and photos of things not Disney related (shocker I know, lol). I know we all love to share with THIS family, because we really are something special - but somethings are better left off MW :) xo - Lola027  450.3 #430 11:40PM

Volcom, saa - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4702.3 #20 2:18PM
but how do we nicely say, hey 8 photos of _______ are too much, the best I can see is please do a collage or something. I try not to post more than four, but if it is a special occasion (like johhny depp, heehee) there can be more. I think the bottom line is what my teacher used to yell "COMMON SENSE, PEOPLE" every time we did not use our brains. If your brain says maybe not, then maybe not. very tricky, because with photos, some people can get intimidated too to not post when they see so many great ones. we need a happy balance. Thanks for the bump by the way. - secretagentangel  1324.6 #104 2:35PM
I agree. I like to post a lot in the park when we visit, but we live in Washington and are not there everyday. It gets frustrating when others who are at the parks everyday bump others pics with their 10,000 pics. Use some common sense. We enjoy the pics but we do want others to see the ones we share too. - dimplesdanie  1236.7 #114 2:52PM
Unfortunately not everyone has common sense - Bambi.  604.3 #291 2:57PM
Very true Bambi. πŸ˜ƒ - dimplesdanie  1236.7 #114 4:20PM
Common sense has unfortunately become all too uncommon! - MeridaFan  3466.9 #28 4:40PM
Why do we say common sense when it is so uncommon? - GrumpyPirateDad  1817.7 #75 12:00AM
Okay, lets call it uncommon sense, only for those intelligent and crazy enough to have it!!!:D - secretagentangel  1324.6 #104 12:13AM
Great reminder!! Thank you! - Armenda  1135.8 #131 11:26PM
If you really feel the need to post something not MW or Disney related, mousetopia is a great place to share with your friends. :) - Armenda  1135.8 #131 11:43PM
I think you just do it for the money. - Mouse4life  1293.1 #108 6:03PM
Thank you! The Lounge is so much more pleasant when people can follow the simple rule Admin has set up. - dimplesdanie  1236.7 #114 2:24PM
I just want to let y'all know that I'm happy just to be here in the company of such fine folks. - LeftyLightning  379.3 #531 2:40PM
You can make a post about it, but do not include a googled pic or one that has nothing to do with it, like, say, 7 churros next to a DoleWhip . πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚XD x3 - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4702.3 #20 2:58PM

This has been a long time coming. It seemed that once the holidays began there was a free for all with non-Disney related pics which started with Halloween house decorations and it went from there. Thank you for reeling this in. - IMissDisney  1205.3 #119 7:29AM
I would like to point out that MrsStrawberry posted a fairly lengthy and thorough plea to adhere to the FAQ guidelines on this. This was posted about 2 weeks ago. - IMissDisney  1205.3 #119 7:58AM
It probably didn't have a picture, therefore missed and pushed down the line by photo spam - cesium55  531.6 #343 9:53AM
With GOOD reason - cesium55  531.6 #343 6:03PM
Well done and thank you! Now if only we had something on bumping old posts that the questions had already been answered. Although we should definitely make exceptions for madsdad and DV old posts. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - MrsSchnooks  2925.2 #37 7:48AM

Maybe I'm not understanding, does this mean that Throwback Thursday photos are no longer permitted? - NotNKansasAnymor  283.8 #925 11:34AM
They are generally frowned upon because they are not live. - MousekaNinja  414.7 #476 11:36AM
No, there is nothing in the Rules about retro Disneyland pics. 😊 A lot of people really like seeing them. - Sweet_Irish_Cream  3929.1 #25 11:37AM
I suppose personally I would rather see tbt photos from inside the parks than any more nail photos. 😝 - MousekaNinja  414.7 #476 11:42AM
MSG you put it better, more along the lines of what I was thinking. Thank you. I stand corrected. - MousekaNinja  414.7 #476 11:44AM
Ok, I think that's where the confusion was. Since the FAQs say that photos posted in the lounge should be live. So as I understand it now...photos should be live UNLESS it is a Throwback Thursday photo posted on Thursday? Correct? - NotNKansasAnymor  283.8 #925 11:51AM

Throwback Thursday has made MW more like Instagram and FB. Especially when the throwback was from last week - cesium55  531.6 #343 12:41PM
Also, on occasion, admin has called up a "retro day" in the lounge. Those are the best time to post the authentic retro pics from your personal stash. - bluefairy  643.3 #263 4:52PM
Aaaaand...throwback or retro doesn't mean last week or last month, maybe not even last year. Lets have some standards, people! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - bluefairy  643.3 #263 4:53PM

******No LilSterner, NO! Do not ban throwback Thursday! I love to see old classic pics of Disneyland! - MadameLeota  1933.6 #69 12:59PM
I don't mind seeing old pics of what DL and DCA used to look like. I know I've one through my old pics and reminisced, but I don't think that people need to search for a pic just to post for "throwback Thursday" which was started as an Instagram thing anyway. But that's just my opinion. - LilSterner  4733.2 #19 3:18PM

DRT Is supposed to be actual live pictures from the parks. However everybody's MW defaults to Disneyland talk. So a lot of people don't change where the post is going. - MrsSchnooks  2925.2 #37 3:29PM
Fisney talk is for anything Disney related. Real Time is for posting pics/ news at parks - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4702.3 #20 3:29PM

you can change your default page on your profile page, if you are going to be in the parks, put it on DRT, otherwise pick the page you want. - secretagentangel  1324.6 #104 3:33PM

I have been posting pictures from a recent trip (that I took) to DL Talk--taking care not post them to DL Real-Time. However, the FAQ's *do* say that DL Talk pictures "should primarily be live pictures from the Disneyland Resort". My take on it was that this (how I was doing it) was fine, but that say taking a picture of a Mickey Mouse T-shirt in a department store was not. Am I wrong here? - #1DisneyDad  227.4 #1538 3:49PM
MouseWait has always been about live pics, it's not an Instagram or Facebook so 'not live' pics should be done in moderation as to not bury the live pics. Most just post live pics in DL Talk as the line between live and talk is blurred. Yes, birthday cakes, Mickey shaped Target stuff should be in The Hub which is another chat part of the lounge. - Linzee  910.1 #174 3:56PM
You are right. Here's a way to describe it, from most appropriate, to least: 1. Live pic from park 2. Non-live pic, but still in park 3. Non-live Disney shirt in department store 4. Hidden Mickey made of cheerios in your cereal bowl. :) - Alicewhoareyou  1392.2 #99 3:58PM
I've always gone by what if everyone posted whatever I was posting rule. If I'm posting live or semi live, and everyone else was, than that would be exactly what the app is for. If I'm posting pic of my trip to target where I saw mickey or my hidden mickey in my lemon, and then everyone else did too, then the lounge would be full of non live and really non helpful pics. that's why I mostly stick to live. - madsdad  1846.5 #74 4:03PM
Also, kudos to VeganDisneyDad for asking and being so open to feedback! - Alicewhoareyou  1392.2 #99 4:28PM
Agreed Alice! - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4702.3 #20 4:37PM
Except that the hidden Mickey's in Cheerios are expressly forbidden. So that should not be posted at all! - MeridaFan  3466.9 #28 4:43PM
Yes, maybe I provided a bad example. lol. How about the hidden poohs in the M&F parking structure? - Alicewhoareyou  1392.2 #99 4:44PM
...or the water droplets from your shower curtain? - Alicewhoareyou  1392.2 #99 4:46PM
While I get the spirit of the original thread comment, I would also like to point out that some of the most stunning pics on DL Talk aren't strictly live either (as it takes time to process them). Despite this, I love seeing them and sure hope that they continue. - #1DisneyDad  227.4 #1538 7:46PM
I don't get a couple of things and have been here for a while and made a few posts. When you view the hub or Disneyland talk or live many of the same posts are on each section. So if you post something on the hub if might also show on Disneyland talk? Oh and I have posted a couple of Throwback Thursday things and didn't realized that they weren't suppose to be done on MW but they have received the most attention then my other posts - Goofytom  1063.9 #146 4:28PM
Every post gets fed to the hub from DL Talk or DL Live :) - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4702.3 #20 4:31PM
And Events - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4702.3 #20 4:31PM
I don't think throwback stuff is against the rules,and it seems that people really enjoy them. I especially enjoy the ones where I learn something new about Disney history. When you are in the hub you can see all the lands, or if you just want to see Disney only stuff you can be in dl talk, or if you only want to see live pics you can go to real time land. Today real time land is also black pearl land which is exceptionally pleasing to me. - madsdad  1846.5 #74 4:31PM
DL Talk and Real-time automatically feed into The Hub so some posts can be found in multiple lands. As for "Throwback Thursday" it has been accepted in the past (but I haven't been on for a couple of weeks so maybe people have changed their minds). - LilSterner  4733.2 #19 4:32PM
The hub is all posts together. - cynDOLEwhip  1175.5 #125 4:32PM
DL Live feeds into DL Talk, all lands feed into The Hub. We like retro pics. - Linzee  910.1 #174 4:32PM
As for Throwback Thursday ou might be referencing my comment above. Just because I don't like how every Thursday people were posting pics from one year (or even a few weeks prior) doesn't mean that others don't. People do like retro pics. - LilSterner  4733.2 #19 4:36PM
TBT/ retro equals a time when we cannot believe we actually wore that stuff. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4702.3 #20 4:39PM
So is it okay if I post a TBT pic 2 or 3 times a month if they are like my other TBT posts, the really old ones from the 60's or 70's? I don't ever want to annoy anyone. πŸ’– - adisneyfamily  832.2 #190 4:49PM

*pulls out bucket list and pen...writes* MUST go to DL with HMACIF wearing our ponchos and skipping down Main Street to go get churros!!! πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’– OH, it's gonna happen!! - adisneyfamily  832.2 #190 5:49PM
Ok makes sense now. Hope you all don't think it was a stupid question. My posts have been Disney related so guess I've been posting in the right spot. Thanks! - Goofytom  1063.9 #146 5:01PM
Not stupid at all :) *hands you a churro* - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4702.3 #20 5:08PM
Not at all! Great question! - MrsSchnooks  2925.2 #37 5:08PM
Well said and thank you SIC for all you do for MW. Every once In a while, folks need to be reminded. No bad intentions here just reminder. - NascarDave  296.6 #843 6:09PM
I think the heat has gotten to everyone today ..... Geez what makes this lounge so good is the "freedom" to be open about the one thing we all love , Disney ! As long as no profanity or inappropriate pics etc I say don't try and control the excitement let it happen 😎 - polo33  63.6 #4048 8:01PM
Coming from the guy who posted a picture of a camel on a Wednesday and asked us to guess what day it is. LOLπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Wow. - MrsSchnooks  2925.2 #37 8:16PM
Technically isn't this post/photo violating MW policy? Besides it's blowing my "live" feed fix (before you jump down my throat, I kid . . . Mostly). - dizneedude  646.9 #259 8:19PM
The MW101 posts were made a long time ago. I would say they're kind of grandfathered in to not apply to the new policy? - MEHlanie_Mouse  1114.5 #136 8:25PM
No. I used to do MW helps, there are 20 something. This is an old post. - Sweet_Irish_Cream  3929.1 #25 8:26PM
And a long time as in before the rules were changed πŸ˜‚ - MEHlanie_Mouse  1114.5 #136 8:26PM
In all honesty SIC is in charge per Admin to do MW 101. Right now the lounge is in dire need of a reminder if what is ok to post. I know you are joking but if you didn't know I wanted to explain it a little more. 😊 That is why this is here. - MrsSchnooks  2925.2 #37 8:27PM
The lounge is even more wound tight these days than they used to be, so these would be beyond pointless now. No listens to good advise πŸ˜‚ - Sweet_Irish_Cream  3929.1 #25 8:28PM
Has nothing to do with "new rules" - Sweet_Irish_Cream  3929.1 #25 8:34PM

Churros are heroes too - GrumpyPirateDad  1817.7 #75 8:53PM
Teehee Grumpy :) - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4702.3 #20 8:55PM
just a thank you again to sweet_irish_cream, you are awesome, and doing these are timeless, even with people finding their own personal reason to not take the great advice. Anyone who is trying to help out the community, new people and veterans, is wonderful in my book. If I ever see you at the parks I will buy you a snow cone!!!(Sorry, I have snowcones on the brain)!! - secretagentangel  1324.6 #104 10:20PM
Very nessesary bump! - DisneyDoorite  359.1 #578 10:42PM

Now lets all hug and make-up! 😊 - dumbbunny  626.5 #277 11:14PM
I don't want to. I want to break the rules and crack jokes at someone else's expense. Nah, never mind. I'll hug - philliprocks  928.7 #169 11:18PM
Well, yes and no. See the Ghostbuster's theme song is in my head right now. 😀 - MrsSchnooks  2925.2 #37 11:22PM

Oh man you guys are cracking me up tonight! - NellTinkerBell  322.8 #710 12:21AM
Bumping this.  It seems like lately there are things being posted in DL Talk that should really go into the hub.  I hate to see live pictures get buried so quickly. - AZDisney  610.2 #289 10:00AM
Newbies are all very confused now πŸ˜‚ - Linzee  910.1 #174 10:20AM
So are we not allowed to do DL TBT anymore? It seems legit throwbacks of the park are enjoyed by MWers, although I think the idea of "throwback" isn't quite understood by some. I Just want to make sure I understand the rules correctly. - apesandmonkeys  7554.9 #7 10:29AM
Without reading the entire thread. Was there a no TBT FBF reference? - E-Ticket  1193.5 #122 10:38AM
Technically, they should go into the Hub.  DL Real time is for live pictures.  I have been guilty too for the TBT in the wrong land.  But post them to the Hub.  I made the Hub my primary land and you see everything.  If I just want to see real time I can go to that land.  It just makes it easy to sort and helps keep live pictures from being buried so quickly. - AZDisney  610.2 #289 10:42AM
E-Ticket yes.  Under LilSterner's reply. - AZDisney  610.2 #289 10:44AM
Okay found some. I think using #TBT and #FBF will allow people to scroll past if they want to and it harder to scroll posts that are not live and people just posting pictures when none is needed.  Lastly some of us can not post live and next day and week want to share. Disneyland talk land is perfect for that.  Disneyland live is perfect for live pictures.  Also since I am at home more than in the parks I love almost everything posted - E-Ticket  1193.5 #122 10:47AM
I only saw that someone asked that it be done away with. I've only posted in DL talk land, not the DL live option, but will post throwbacks in the hub from now on, no biggie 😊 I think with all the hype of people posting throwback pics, though, a bit more definition of what "throwback" means is necessary: it's meant to reflect a considerable amount of time lapsed. 😎 - apesandmonkeys  7554.9 #7 10:48AM
We all love the way way throwback pictures, like the ones from before I was born kind! The ones that spam the lounge are the ones "tbt from last week, last month, etc" before the the trend throwback Thursday Admin plan days called "retro days" where the lounge was allowed to post those kind if pictures all day long which was quite fun  - sleepyhead_CM  596.2 #296 10:48AM
And to add to E-Ticket last post, thank you for adding that bit on posting pics a few days later. Sometimes it isn't always feasible to post live pics, so DL talk land is great for that.  - apesandmonkeys  7554.9 #7 10:53AM
sleepyhead Exactly! I appreciate everyone's contributions, but when people are calling last week/month/year's pics throwbacks, they are misunderstanding the "retro" emphasis that Throwback is meant to incorporate. 😎 - apesandmonkeys  7554.9 #7 10:56AM
I love seeing true TBT pictures, and DL Talk is probably the true place for it.  My main reason for bumping is to remind that art work etc belong in the hub. - AZDisney  610.2 #289 10:58AM
Agreed sleepyhead! - adisneyfamily  832.2 #190 10:59AM
Thank you AZDisney for the update and all is duly noted 😎, especially since I enjoy posting retro pics  - apesandmonkeys  7554.9 #7 11:03AM
AZDisney oh I know what you mean with the artwork. There was a time I called the art work lounge there was too much!! And I flag posts and say they belong to the hub, but alas one flag does not do enough - sleepyhead_CM  596.2 #296 11:06AM
I hope everyone reads the comment that Not Every Post Needs A Picture - sleepyhead_CM  596.2 #296 10:54AM
I really wish I could reply with a picture lol jk - BeatleMike  565.5 #315 11:08AM
Yes!!  - apesandmonkeys  7554.9 #7 11:10AM
BeatleMike, you are now BLOCKED!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - sleepyhead_CM  596.2 #296 11:17AM
Pics of the same people can get a little boring. In fact, posts on this App seems repetitive. 🌺 - 808luvdisney  3.6 #25080 11:12AM
Then use the Remove Post option. Boom, problem solved.  - Atora  2274.9 #53 11:46AM
Can't we all just get along ????Hehehehehehe Gosh!!! - Fantasmicfan1  495.5 #380 11:36AM
I didn't know we weren't getting along. - AZDisney  610.2 #289 11:39AM
ajay87 this post is old! Second it is generally frowned upon to post a picture of a tree in Utah with no Disney affiliation on here. That's what Facebook is for. And lastly is it really that hard to follow the rules admin has laid out for us?  - goofydad909  1968.8 #64 9:52PM
This needs to be on here permanently!!  - goofydad909  1968.8 #64 7:18PM
So I could be permanently confused?. lol. Someday you can explain all of this to me in person. Until then, is posting allowed? It's all Wilson's fault! - MickeyLumboCM  778.0 #207 9:23PM
