Default Black market outside WW and how to kill it

It is a strict policy of Ganz that Webkinz World items should never be sold outside the game. And yet, hundreds and thousands of offers can be found on certain websites any minute. Kids get acquainted with the idea of black market, and how easy it is to buy "respect" and "social points" with moderate amount of cash.

Usually, it doesn't end up well. Kids either break their piggy banks or start begging for money. Both tend to make WW quite unpopular with parents, which eventually means less profit for Ganz and worse general reputation for the game. It also produces an unholy amount of cheating and scamming that may be even felonious since real money is involved.


It is likely impossible to eradicate the black market completely. However, it is easy to cripple it to the point where it barely affects the game. All it takes is to make
all items retired more than 3 (maybe 4) years ago untransferable. That's it. You have it, wear it proudly. And if you do not - well, is there any real harm in it?

PS: Now, imagine how much nicer our trading rooms will become...

That would seem to solve everything, wouldn't it? I hate going into the trading room and seeing everyone looking for '05 and '06 items. I definatly don't think all retired items should be untransferable, just the ones who have been retired for over a certain amount of time. Absolutely wonderful idea, I support all the way!
