Lightbulb Possible Trade Scam Solution


I am a new Webkinz user and I have been reading about people getting scammed when they want to trade something. While I have not traded anything yet I am now wary because of all the awful stories I have been reading! I do have a solution...let me know if I should suggest this to the official Webkinz site!

There is a MMORPG (Massively multiplayer online role playing game) called World of Warcraft. Anyone heard of it? It's an online game where you are playing along side hundreds of thousands of other real people. The game has a great way of dealing with trades. You click on the person you want to trade with and select trade. A box comes up with slots in it. You put your item in it, (that other person will be able to see it), they put their item in their box, (you will be able to see it) then click the trade button. The other person can't take the item until each person clicks the trade button. There are tons of scammers on Warcraft too, this just makes things a little more fair. Now I don't know how difficult programming that would be for a website like Webkinz. Warcraft charges a monthly fee and has the money and man power to design stuff like that. It's just a thought! It will definitely eliminate the "you trade first" dilemma, and its instantaneous too!

What do you think?

Just wait until you start getting mail about actually buying Kinzcash using real money! Warcraft gets alot of that too.

LOL... People have actually suggested something similar to that, maybe Ganz will implement it. It seems to be already kind of done with the DiceKinz and new Trading Card Game. A few little tweaks would make it a nice trading block. Now, whether or not Ganz officially supports trading between members is another story!

Definitely suggest your idea. Welcome to WI, as well! In the meantime, play around here and when you get 25 posts, reply to our Gift Exchange rules with your agreement and you can start trading in our "safe trading Gift Exchange", which is much, much safer than the Clubhouse!!!!!

Thanks for the welcome! I haven't had the chance to read ALL the posts here! That would take me forever! LOL. I am still learning about the Webkinz world. My daughter just got her first one last week and I got one for myself just a couple of days ago. There's lots to learn!

What a neat place this is!

It would be a great idea for Webkinz to have some type of trading post. it would take out the fear of trading that everyone has ad would make alot of people happy.
