Weltanshauung Active Rain Community Guidelines

Real Estate Agent with HomeStarr Realty RS143922A

 As people age, their personalities seem to change. People think they become more grumpy, but actually, they are more compassionate and empathetic. Meeting your professional obligations has become a skill, and your self-esteem is much higher, 

Getting older can be an honor, becoming wise, using the knowledge one has learned, and being proud to use and share with others—an honor of age, a benefit to be alive, and a natural part of life.

Sometimes, one may become passionate about getting the point across. In other words, they agree to disagree. This is commonly known as a debate.  The words may be strong, but then the subject is over, and hopefully, each was able to get their ideas across

It is, however, essential to keep an open mind, especially for the younger generation and their train of thought. Times have changed, and how we function in everyday life has changed. What once had an important place in time differs from what it once was. There is a new degree in technology, and we must open our minds yet keep the doors open to new and old relationships. 

Active Rain welcomes all Real Estate professionals. Encourages continual communication and feedback so we can grow. We need to educate each other. Sharing experiences is vital to our growth. This is a Two way Street. We all are invited to share in this community. Join Active Rain

I am not a fan of following rules, but being that I try to follow the Ten Commandments, it usually allows me to follow most sets of rules, haha.  There are definitely too many rules in the world that don't make a bit of sense though.

Brian England, I didn't think they were out of the ordinary. I thought they were encouraging. They make me proud to be a member of Active Rain.

Anna "Banana" Kruchten  For years, we would have a challenge in the New Year  Lynn B. Friedman CRS Atlanta, GA 404-939-2727 would have us pick one of the rules and write a post on it sometimes it would be more complicated with megs points, and SEO would hit the charts . Times have changed, and so has technology- Thank you, Anna

Yes I remember that challenge every year and it wasn't that long ago either!  Time to bring this stuff back in style!

Hannah Williams - How wonderful it was to see your post today. I remember Lynn B. Friedman CRS Atlanta, GA 404-939-2727 challenges and our annual post on Weltanschauung on AR Guidelines. I'm very glad to see you brought it back and hopefully, it brings a breath of new life for all blog posts per the guidelines.

Hi Dorie Dillard Austin TX I am glad I did also it does remind us of what Active Rain is all about. When I first joined Active Rain,  I received this information in an email, and it looked so official. We all should read it over,  the new people and the long-time members should also.

Hi Hannah... it takes one "old" lady to recognize the truth from another "old" lady! Just kidding... we are not old, we are just mature. If I've learned anything as I've "matured" it's that the experience is freeing in more ways than one.

Hannah it is a good idea to review the weltanschauung guidelines at least once per year.

Hi Hannah:

I think reminders about the community guidelines periodically is a good thing and no doubt there are plenty of people who are not aware these exist. I remember a Challenge or 2 years about where we were invited to pick something in the Weltanshauung to write about. We had a great response and lots of great thoughts and responses.


Feb 15, 2024 05:04 PM
Hannah Williams

Jeff Dowler, CRS It was a yearly challenge and very complicated. It was filling out forms that made it so hard. Lynn B. Friedman CRS Atlanta, GA 404-939-2727 was in charge and she had a list of points if we completed a certain things. We did learn quite a few techniques.  You were very good at it; you did video calling, if I remember right.

I do not think that I have ever seen that link for Weltanschauung before. I read the guidelines and find the to be consistent with the values that I consider normal.

Feb 15, 2024 05:16 PM
Hannah Williams

I am so glad you took the time John Juarez to read it. The values are what we stand for and it would be nice for new members to receive a copy when they join. I remember getting a copy and being quite impressed when I read it. Back in 2009

Lise Howe: The video was from the old post. I remember it taking me forever to find anything on the word Weltanschauung and, finally, Larry David.
