Please Stop the Drama!

So I don't know about anyone else, but I started playing Wizard101 as a sort of escape from real life.  You know, something enjoyable to do that gives me some time to get away from the pressures and drama that accompanies.... well.... being alive.  There is nothing I dislike more than drama, and from what I have heard from other people, I'm not alone.  So what I am wondering is why there is so much of it on Wizard101.

Here's the thing.....If you don't like someone, then don't talk to them.  There is even this cool feature called the ignore button. USE IT!  I mean in real life, if there was someone you didn't like, would you call them up on the phone?  Probably not.  You probably just wouldn't talk to them.  Consider doing the same thing online.  Don't add people you don't like.  If you already have, remove them or ignore them.  This goes for other sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, etc.

Now, if someone is harassing you, then you should remove them or ignore them as well.  If it gets too bad, you always have the option to report them.  I just don't see the point wasting energy arguing with people while doing something that is supposed to be enjoyable.  Also, other people don't want to hear you arguing either.  Please remember that!

So what should you do if you are playing and see someone else get bullied?  Well I would hope that everyone would step up and say something.  Not to argue, but to let the person doing the bullying know that they should stop.  Not doing anything in a situation like that is almost as bad as doing the bullying yourself..  And remember, if the situation is bad enough, you can always report the person.

Let's please just try to keep the Wizard101 community a fun place to be for everyone.  I have met so many great friends since I started playing, and I know there are many more great people out there.  So let's work together to stop the craziness!

I agreed with you, since this game get worst even we try to have fun, try not bring drama, emotional or trouble problem. This game need to be have fun!!! IN real life, we can't click ignore them as we can't click report as well. Yea, we need to focus our life and problems to be not in game. Wish good luck for all!
