Default Answered: Ad I'd Rather Not See On Webkinz Newz...

I think this is the right place to post this...I was doing the Peek-A-Newz Challenge on Webkinz Newz and I happened to notice an ad that I'd rather not see on Webkinz Newz. What if little kids saw this and clicked on it?? I don't think I'm allowed to post a picture because it might be too bad for WI, but I will tell you that it was and ad for IMVU with words that are not very appropriate on it...

Is there any way to get Ganz to remove this ad from the site??

Thanks!!

YoMcN (love your user name, btw!)...Internet Ad Companies sell packages to sites and some they sell are called "family friendly" (their words).

I know that is what WI purchases and if you EVER see something offensive on here, please let a staff member know so they can make Justin aware. He WILL do something about it for WI.

Unfortunately Justin doesn't have any control over WW or WKN.

Best bet is have an adult call Ganz customer service (the number is also in the Wiki) to let them know what is being posted on their site.

If you have a screen shot to send them, that's great! Tell the customer service rep that you want to email it. I've found a call gets their attention quicker than an email.

LOL! You're right not to post it here! And I'm sure if Ganz knew, it wouldn't be posted on their sites either!

I would suggested taking a screenshot of the ad then sending it to Ganz through the link that Chessy1 provided.

I'm pretty sure Ganz closed at 6:00. If I see the ad again tomorrow, I'm going to call them and see if they'll remove it. Thanks for the help!!

Contact Ganz and alert them to it. But I don't know if tehy have much control over the ads. I get ads about St. Louis Deals, etc. I don't thin people in England or Australia are seeing those, (I Live in Illinois, so I'm close to St. Louis) I bet people in California see ads about stuff in California. So Ganz might not be able to do much.

IMVU is for older adults. This shouldn't be on webkinz newz. You are absoloutely correct. Did you take a print screen shot? You might want to report this to ganz. Its not safe as young kids ages 7 and other ages play webkinz. They shouldn't do this. Many websites i go on has an IMVU ad. I'm a teen so i just ignore it but its different for kids. Thanks for the heads up.

I know what you're talking about. These are so inappropriate for Webkinz! I think it's so bad that they are on there. They have to go.
