Ugh...the "s" thing....yes....

I don't get why that happens....and so often...

I find it useless to ask others what room number to request at a particular resort. Seriously, if there are 1000 rooms, why would someone think they could request a particular room???? Just book the view you are willing to pay for and then request upper or lower floor. You get what you get!

But my biggest pet peeves on this board are a tie between the "Is ....... worth it?" and the "Sell me on/ convince me to stay at .........". For heaven's sake people- read the info available, look at photos, ask some SPECIFIC questions, and then make up your own mind. Don't expect total strangers to make it up for you.
I'm always tempted to reply, "No, no one on DISboards has ever stayed there."

The "Is ........ worth it?" and "Sell me on ......." threads drive me nuts too. Usually with the "Is it worth it?" threads the poster is considering upgrading from one hotel category to the next, and really, it's totally subjective whether the jump in price is worth it. Personally, I think it's more important to ask yourself if you are comfortable paying the additional cost than asking if it's worth it.

And with the "Sell me on" threads, it just seems to me that if someone has to be sold on a particular resort, then maybe that isn't the resort they should be considering.

And I totally agree with not expecting total strangers to make up your mind for you. It's not like they're going on the trip with you.

1) I agree entirely

2) People whose subject lines are too vague. "WHAT DO YOU THINK I SHOULD DO?!?!?!" "HELP PLEASE!" "TACOS!"

3) Which brings up the urgency factor - you don't need to type in caps and use that many punctuation marks if you're just trying to figure out which pool is better for your family of 17 for your stay in August 2016.... That's not pressing and yelling doesn't help anyone... hahah That sort of subject-line and text should be reserved for things like "I'm at POR stuck in my room with an alligator in the bathroom and the floor is getting covered in lava and phones don't work just my internet signal could someone please call the resort for me and have them help me out?!"
Oh, God, yes. First of all, people will be much more likely to read a post if they can actually tell what the question is from the title. Second, it just seems rather juvenile to me to use all caps and multiple question marks and/or exclamation points. People are certainly going to be more than willing to help without the histrionics.

What drives me nuts about that is that what people don't seem to realize is that if that particular room isn't available, then the room assigner isn't going to know why they wanted it, and therefore isn't going to know what a suitable substitute might be.

It drives me nuts when a poster asks a very specific question & someone's answer has nothing/very little to do with question.

What is your favorite breakfast at MK?

My pet peeve is the people who get mad if you don't agree with their opinion. The best example is the visciousness of those who hate DDP. Why do they care if i like free dining over the room discount? For some reason this subject really brings out the worst in ppl.

Ok, I will admit...my Disboard pet peeve is when folks nit pick over the written rules like somehow they are on the Disney Supreme Court. Yes, line cutting is against the rules and many people teach their children not to cut - but do we really need to hash out who has to pee and whether they get special perks or should be flogged?

Mine is using the resort specific threads to have personal conversations, if you are looking for information you have to trawl through pages of pointless chatter.

Mine is when people ask if free dining is going to be announced in like a year from now.

Umm, yes, definately. Go ahead and book your plane tickets.


Also, when someone posts a bunch of pics on the picture threads and someone "quotes" the whole picture thread. Can't you just say "Hey nice pictures Bob" in a separate post down below so everyone doesn't have to scroll through the same pictures numerous times?
