Ganz Expands Clubhouse "Kinz Chat PLUS" Rules


webkinz cheats
 
As many of our members have noticed, a new "Rule Page" has been added to the Kinz Chat PLUS section of the Webkinz World Clubhouse.  In what appears to be an attempt to clarify what is and what is not acceptable behavior in the Clubhouse, Ganz has expanded on the rules.  This new rule page deals with such topics as: 
 
  • Always Protect Your Identity
  • Always Respect Others
  • No Inappropriate Behavior
  • Kinz Chat PLUS Banning
  • Reporting Other Members
  • Your Account is Your Responsiblity
 
Anyone who wishes to participate in the Kinz Chat PLUS section of the Clubhouse must agree to the rules Ganz has put in place.  Anyone who fails to follow those rules can have KC+ blocked from their account.

Re: Ganz Expands Clubhouse "Kinz Chat PLUS" Rules

I wonder if this means they will be paying closer attention what's going on in there. There seems to be a lot of kids abusing the report button lately. Especially in the trading rooms. Thank you for the update.

Re: Ganz Expands Clubhouse "Kinz Chat PLUS" Rules

Hey is anybody blocked out of KC because of this new sign? Not exactly blocked, but it takes a long time to load and then freezes Up?

THis has been happening to me the past couple of days i really want to go in KC!

Re: Ganz Expands Clubhouse "Kinz Chat PLUS" Rules

I have tried to sign up for KC plus. I go to the parent area and fill out the info, but I never receive the email. Does anyone else have this problem?

Thanks, hopefully I can figure it out with your help...

Re: Ganz Expands Clubhouse "Kinz Chat PLUS" Rules

I still don't have that new sign for some reason.

But anyways, I think Ganz explained a lot about the rules.

Try looking in your junk folder. This happened to a lot of people when emails were sent out with the unicorn tapestries from the webkinz newz site.

YES!! Thank you! I have filled out that form and waited for the email at least a dozen times. Checked my Spam folder...nothing! What's up with that?

Re: Ganz Expands Clubhouse "Kinz Chat PLUS" Rules

I am not sure I like this new change. There are kids who are reporting people for doing nothing. I was in a room the other day, just started a trade, actually hadn't typed anything in yet, and a warning came up saying if I kept up my behavior, I'd be reported! I hope the pay attention to what is actually going on in the room, cause it is hard to do something wrong if you haven't said anything yet!

Re: Ganz Expands Clubhouse "Kinz Chat PLUS" Rules

i think these new rules are ok because i have reported three+ people saying you need to cry andi have also heard is you need to leave so these new rules will stop them from doing that

Re: Ganz Expands Clubhouse "Kinz Chat PLUS" Rules

I'm worried about the same thing. I have never said anything wrong in the clubhouse. The only room I go into is the trading room, but I have seen people threaten to report others for doing nothing wrong. If people get mad because you won't trade what they want, they threaten to report. That's the reason I don't wear my charm forest tiara in the trading room anymore. People invite me to trade, but that's the only thing they want. When I tell them, "Sorry, I don't want to trade that", they get mad.

Re: Ganz Expands Clubhouse "Kinz Chat PLUS" Rules

I still see alot of bullying and using words to make bad statements. I had really hoped that they would get more firm enforcing the rules.

Re: Ganz Expands Clubhouse "Kinz Chat PLUS" Rules

hopefully they are just looking at what people say closer. i don't want the privilege to be taken away. cause i like to use my own words in the trading room.

Re: Ganz Expands Clubhouse "Kinz Chat PLUS" Rules

yes, i noticed this new change and i like it.

Re: Ganz Expands Clubhouse "Kinz Chat PLUS" Rules

I agree that people will threaten to report for the wrong reasons. I have a Magic Retriever, and if someone wants my pet's bed, and I say it's not for trade, they say I'm mean/rude and they will report me. The "report" should include the last couple of conversations the reported person had, & if they were reported unfairly, it should count against the person that reported them.

sometimes, it's like if i leave and don't trade with a webkniz that i don't want to trade with (maybe because he/she is mean or i don't want their items) they might threatern to report me like a bulldog have threatened me before!

Re: Ganz Expands Clubhouse "Kinz Chat PLUS" Rules

I agree with you about a report on the last few "conversations" thing. I know one time I was in the trading room and this one camel was being extremely rude to the person he was trading with, i just figured it was two people trading that knew each other. It asked me to trade and I agreed, and here all I said was "hello" and it started being really rude to me and threatened to report me if I didn't keep my mouth shut; I didn't know "hello" was offensive. I ended that trade immediately, and as I didn't know about the reporting button on the page it got away with it that time. I wish people would use the trading room or any room for that matter, for the purpose it was intended for, clean fun, not a centre for bullying!!

Re: Ganz Expands Clubhouse "Kinz Chat PLUS" Rules

I do agree that somethings needs to be done about the language some people use and the bullying; I just hope that Webkinz is going to investigate claims before banning people from the trading room. I have been reported, literally, before I have even said one word in the trading room; there are people who abuse the privilege of reporting. That is my only fear; I would hate to lose my ability to trade simply because someone thinks it is funny to report people for no reason.

Re: Ganz Expands Clubhouse "Kinz Chat PLUS" Rules

I believe a report should be substantiated before banning someone. There should be a record of the conversation & a determination made about who was being rude, etc. Maybe then they should get a warning & if it happens again, they should be banned. It should be policed because Ganz has won awards for the safety & security of their site.

Re: Ganz Expands Clubhouse "Kinz Chat PLUS" Rules

I agree with all of your comments. I hope that they have a way to retrieve the "offensive" conversation that is being reported. I have not had anyone threaten me or bully me in anyway, so I don't have that experience. I hope that some checks and balances are in place as I love the kinz chat plus trading area and would miss trading with the nice people I have been lucky enough to meet so far.

PS GO EXTRAVAGANZA WEEKEND!

Re: Ganz Expands Clubhouse "Kinz Chat PLUS" Rules

Oh they added a new rule? Ididn't see that! Thaks for showing us! But I can not tell if it is a bad thing. But if you disobey the rule they ban you from you account or take KC from you.

Re: Ganz Expands Clubhouse "Kinz Chat PLUS" Rules
