Default Answered: Bad advertisement

Today, I was browsing through WI and saw a very innap ad for some "Soccer Star" game. The girl in the ad was dressed in a skimpy and inappropriate and offensive outfit, and the ad was gross. I don't think we should have to pay so we don't have to see this disturbing ad. I understand that WI can't choose ads and we pay so they can earn money to improve the site, but it was just very suggestive ad. If WI can, please make sure ads are appropriate before being published on the website.

Thank you for your time,

rG57

Webkinz Insider is signed up for "Family Friendly" advertisements. That is the only category of ads we are supposed to be getting here. Unfortunately, we don't get to review the ads before they show up here on WI. We see them for the first time at the same time you do.

Sometimes, an ad slips through that, while the ad company calls it "family friendly" we, and our members, don't. Justin can go in and block those advertisements in the programming so that they will never show up again. To do that, he needs information from you.

If you ever see an advertisement you believe is inappropriate for WI, please make a note of the name of the company and/or product it is advertising, and please right-click on the ad to get the URL of the site it would have taken you to if you had clicked on it. Justin can use this info to block the ad, and, if necessary, complain to the ad company for sending it to us in the first place.

Like other disscussions about ads, Justin can't choose exactly what ads go onto the site. I'm pretty sure they come in a 'package,' and WI has the family package. If you see an innapropriate ad, let him know.

I believe if you PM a staff member they can contact Justin and he can block certain ads. But I think they have to have a reason to be blocked. He can't block all ads, just those troublesome ones. I flagged this so we can have a staff members opinions.

But I agree. No one should have to see that! EW.

So I just saw this ad... TWICE in a row.
And it is VERY inappropriate. I hope WI can do something about it.

I use adblock, too! I hadn't seen any ads at all since I downloaded it. If you have mozilla, I recommend it.

While this is a good idea...
Think of those that don't have ad block.
This ad should not be here period.
Its very inappropriate.

However, ad block IS a good solution if you have mozilla.
