Default Katie's Tips And Tricks For The Trading Room!

Hey Peeps! Today, I will show you how to get a successful trade, how to even get in there without throwing the computer out the window, and actually getting people to trade with you!

Chapter 1: Getting in a non-crowded zone

This gets tricky sometimes, but it should work 99.9% of the time. Usually the phone will dump you in the blue, so I usually go for orange or green. But, sometimes the blue wins! LOL Another great way is hitting the zone button and seeing in the box next to the color how many faces are there.

Chapter 2: Getting in a room

This is I think the hardest step in the process. I have recently discovered a trick of seeing the tack color and going to that zone. Here is what I have found out about that.

When you see a color of a zone you are in, that means there is a open space

Blue= A spot in the blue zone
Red=Currently full in all zones
Orange=A spot in the orange/yellow zone
Green=A spot in the green zone

Another trick is continuously clicking "Find Me A Room" buttom. Whatever you do, do not click Quiet Room. It will take longer to find a room. Thanks to a WI member who posted that and I don't remember who. LOL

Chapter 3: Finding people who would like to trade

I wait until someone new enters the room, but sometimes there are people who want to trade. I move my cursor around to the pet who does not have a ◄► above their head and find the pets name. From there, I select their name and hope to trade!

Chapter 4: Making a good trade

Plumpy recently said on her column that if you are happy with the items you are trading for, it is a good trade. I disagree and agree with that. I disagree if it is a W-Shop item for a red lava lamp I don't agree with that. But I agree if both of the items are rare or the same value, then as long as you are happy, go for it!

Chapter 5: Avoiding Scammers

It hurts to talk about this, but there are people who do scam. This morning I was offered a carrot for a PSI. I wasn't happy. If they keep offering you junk, you have the power to X out of that trade!

Well, I hope I made your trading experiance more fun and enjoyable!

Great thread, Katie

I have recently been able to get into the trading room (usually late at night). I didn't know this about the blue, red, etc... buttons. However, continually clicking the "Find me a Room" button sometimes works.

If you are trading with someone and you are constantly being offered weird (to you) items, you can click on the little green blob with a mouth next to you webkinz. It will allow you to tell the other webkinz what type of items you want (exclusive, rare, clothing, food, etc...). You can tell the other person that sad faces mean you dislike and item and happy faces mean you like the item.

It is true that sometimes people do not offer items of equal (or even close) value to what they want from you. You do not have to trade! Just take off an item or two until you feel the trade is fair. Beware! When you decide to trade, everything that is in the boxes will be traded, even the unhappy faces. Clean things up before you hit the trade button.

This information has been very helpful. I haven't been able to get into the trading rooms yet but my friend has and she has been snockered several times. She thinks she is trading for one thing and the other trader makes a quick switch just as they push the buttons. I feel this is a sad situation, that individuals are being this unkind in the trading room. I will tell her about your comments here.
Thank you

Good Luck Missi! I know. I think it is mostly little kids thinking about that big item you offer and click to trade. Hopefully, Ganz will get on this where you can report unfair trades or something.

Thanks for taking the time to write this all out! I too have discovered those things, and the trading room isnt at all so bad as long as you know what your doing and play right. Some people dont understand values of items, and keep giving food for PSI or exclusives. but i have found there are people there who do trade fairly, and its a fun quick way to getting new items!
Thanks Katie, I'm sure everyone appreciates the time you put in to this!(I do!)
