Oh, I am so jealous, give it to me", but it is only a joke! or "Let me buy it". I had to re-read the rules, you cannot even say that, even if it is a joke, it can be perceived as solicitation--I noticed a few comments in previous threads that made me think that perhaps not everyone enjoys seeing everyone's new items. Suggestions were made to have a sticky made where these pics could be posted. This is a great idea.
I personally find it to be a celebratory time when bal boys & girls have new items. I want to see all their pics, read their excited comments, or nervous ones questioning if the bag is a keeper. It is so fun to share in each other's celebration.
Does not everyone enjoy this? Is it down right offensive to some? I honestly don't believe that pics posted by pf'ers (including myself) of their new bags are meant to make people jealous. I may say something like "Oh, I am so jealous, give it to me", but it is only a joke! or "Let me buy it". I had to re-read the rules, you cannot even say that, even if it is a joke, it can be perceived as solicitation. I am genuinely thrilled for others when they find a special bag.
I also know that when I say "I am obsessed" , I don't mean that this is the only thing I think about day and night. I have a full life, this is just ONE fun hobby that I enjoy and I love the Bal forum! As another tpf member stated, "It is not the bags that keep us coming back, it is the people" This is so true. You all have been so fun to share this passion with!
Since you don't know someone's tone of voice, so many things that are said, can be taken out of context, & perceived in a completely different manner. Rules just help establish clarity on what is expected.
