Default Stop Advertisements!

There used to be a time where the ads were webkinz ads. Only webkinz ads. But in the recent months, these ads have gotten out of control! There's even advertisements for a cleaning software which could be a virus! They should NEVER have those types of ads! Lots of my friends have quit webkinz because of these ads. Now I may not even be allowed on it! That's why I think that advertisements NEED to stop!

Webkinz World used to be a nice, child friendly environment, but let me put it bluntly - as a piece of programming, it is dreadfully outdated. Apple's refusal to maintain Flash Player was a powerful nail into WW future's coffin. So now, WW is being used to the hilt - with ads, eStore sales, and whatever else that brings immediate income - before stopping the serves altogether and dumping the project in favor of more modern ones like Mazin' World and Tail Towns.

That exedrin ad that slowly dissolves won't even let me click to go to an account. But I do realize Ganz needs the money to keep going. (You'd think our money would be enough -- lol)

I do understand that Webkinz needs to have ads to earn money, but come on, we keep more and more ads everyday!

Pitenna - the apple and adobe stuff is complicated and I'm not sure it's that relevent here when cloudbrowse for iPad is a flash and java enabled browser (albiet one that is apparently very slow), and I play WW on my iPad by remotely logging into my computer. Though personally I've had far more problems with flash since Adobe took over Macromedia.

ANYWAY back to the threads topic:- You do know you can turn the non-webkinz ones off right?

^ The only problem with the above is it can stop things like the hop promos but as those are never available in my country that wouldn't bother me (Though I don't use this option as Adblock Plus is doing fine at blocking ads on webkinz world).

However, considering that I'm a deluxe member I find it rather annoying that even then you have to search for this option.

I support! But as NedOwl said, you can do that but it may block other promotions too.
I saw a "Make a Baby" ad WHILE I was playing Webkinz O.o

The ads in webkinz world now cover 1/4 of the whole screen! That is outrageous!
I am sick of this. I'm not going to buy another webkinz until they fix all of this garbage.

You're technically right, it is possible to play Webkinz on iPad using third-party proxy, but my point was not about that. What I wanted to say is that Flash Player is a thing of the past, and Ganz doesn't want its legacy weighing them down. Plush sales are sharply down so they're milking WW for whatever it's worth while their other products are still being developed.
