Forums

  • What is a post?
    A post is any entry submitted to the forum.
  • What is a thread?
    A thread is a linear series of posts and its subsequent replies.
  • How do I post a new comment?

    To create a new post directly to a poll, click on the "Comment On This Poll" link located at the bottom of each answered quick poll. To reply to a post, simply click on the 'reply' link for the post you wish to respond to. A dialogue box will appear for you to enter your reply.

  • How do I search for a particular poll?

    To search for polls, click Polls -> Search Polls from the main menu. You can also browse the latest polls or polls in any category using the menu on the left side of any page in the polls section of the site.

  • Why should I rate posts?

    Rating posts is simply a polite way of acknowledging to a poster that you enjoyed (or didn't enjoy) what they have written. We have incorporated a post rating system into the poll comments to de-clutter the flow of dialogue so that people can give thanks without stretching out threads unnecessarily with short messages of appreciation, and can stay on topic. By rating posts, you make the environment more comfortable for yourself, and for other readers. People browsing the comments can see which posts rate highly (and inversely which rate lowly) and can therefore allow members to be more selective about what they choose to read or respond to.

  • I rated a post, but it doesn't seem to have made a difference to the post's overall rating? Why?
    Your vote is counted along with votes from other forum users. A single vote may not have an immediately noticeable impact, however, if enough votes are cast in a similar way, you will begin to see a change.
  • Why was my post removed?

    From time to time, posts are removed if they are in breach of the WDYT's Terms and Conditions. Typically members will nominate posts to be removed using the “report abuse” function. WDYT Member Support may from time to time also take a more direct role in deleting posts that are considered abusive, offensive or inappropriate for our online community.

  • When should I report abuse?

    You should only report abuse if you feel the post you are reporting has breached WDYT's Terms and Conditions.

  • My post was deleted, but I believe it shouldn‘t have been. Can you retrieve it?

    If your post was removed in error, you can contact our support team.

  • Can I post HTML or images in my posts?

    No. HTML has been removed from poll comments.

  • Can I delete my own posts?

    As WDYT is a widely accessible resource, we wish to encourage a community that thinks before they post comments. Members should be vigilant about what they post, and to be considerate of other readers before they post. You can submit a “report abuse” request for your own post if you would like it to be removed. As a general rule of thumb, do not post anything unless you are prepared for the repercussions, including the fact that your content may not be deleted. Never submit personally identifiable information in your poll comments.

Member Rewards

  • How can I earn more Rewards?

    You earn Rewards by responding to the email promotions we send you.

    Another way to ensure you are earning as many rewards as possible is to regularly update your profile modules. As well as earning rewards for each module you complete, you can improve your chances of receiving more emails if you have a wider range of interests.

  • Do I earn Rewards for voting on a Poll?

    Unfortunately, rewards are not given for participating in a Poll. You can earn rewards by completing profile modules, and by clicking on the promotional emails we send you.

  • Will my Reward balance expire?

    So long as your account remains active, your Reward balance will not expire! And furthermore, as our catalogue of rewards grow, you'll have more opportunities to spend your rewards. Your rewards balance will be automatically reduced when you purchase items from our Rewards Catalogue or redeem cash into your bank account.

  • What happens if I don't respond to an email promotion?

    If you don't respond to email promotions you will not earn any rewards. Please be wary of closing dates advertised on some of our email communications. If you choose to respond after the date indicated, then you may not be eligible to collect the rewards related to a particular email.

To improve the relevancy of information, you may wish to consider editing your profile regularly as you move in and out of purchasing considerations.
  • If I unsubscribe/resign from the WDYT Panel, will I lose my reward balance?
