and the gift exchange is kind of like the trading room on webkinz. you trade some of your webkinz things, for other people's items. so yeah, its pretty much a trading room.
and the giftz thing is how many gifts people have exchanged in the gift exchange. to be a gifted trainee, you have to have been a member for over 2 weeks, and have made 50 helpfull "non-fluff" posts. first, if you are excpeted, you are a gifted trainee. you get trained with a coach, and they teach you how to use the gift exchange properly. once you have shown them you are ready, then you become gifted, and can trade mwith everyone!!really hope i helped!!
Thanks for all of your help! How come it is closed on weekends? Is it because they are selecting people to become GT's? Oh, and do you have to be on , like , 24/7 to be trained by a GC? Cuz, i only get 30 mins a day.
I know your question has been answered by all of the helpful people who posted above me but I would like to give you an extra link. This one was made by Moderator Gingerly and is a wonderful guide on how to post to become a gift trainee. You may want to look over it before posting your agreement on the Official Gift Exchange Thread.
I think the Official GE thread is closed for the weekend anyway. Here is the link to Gingerly's thread, Good luck and I hope to see you on the GE soon. http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...s-t327735.html

No, you do not have to be on constantly. If you get accepted your Gift Coach will explain everything. You basically post a list and people come to you. Then you check your list and see if you like any offers. That's how it works.

GE stands for Gift Exhange. It's were selected members go to trade items in Webkinz World.
A Gift Trainee is a person who has applied to the GE, has been accpeted, and is learning how the GE works.
A Gifted member is a member who has expirience in traidng items in WI and trades in the Main GE with other Gifted members and Gift Gurus.
A Gift Guru is a member who has been Gifted for atleast 30 days, has traded atleast 50 times after becoming gifed, and shows excellence in behaivor.
In order to begin trading, you have to go through a training process with a Gift Coach. A Gift Coach is a very expirienced member who has been asked to train gift trainees to get ready for the big GE.
In order to become a Gift Trainee, you have to have been a member of WI for a minimum of 2 weeks, and have atleast 50 good posts. Click here to learn more about making good posts for the Gift Exchange.
Once you have met the requirements, you can read through the rules and apply here.
An admin will read through your prevous posts, check your account history, and make a desion on whether or not the GE is right for you. If they accept you, you recieve a PM about 1-2 weeks later including your next instructions.
The reason why you cannot enter users Gift Exchanges (The links in their signatures) is because you do not have the same ranking as them. If you are a Webkinz, you cannot go look at a Gift Trainee/Gifted/Gift Guru's GE. You cannot look/see any GE's, or the main Gift Exchange, nor user's Giftz feedback (the little number next to 'Giftz' on under somebody's name when they post).
The Giftz icon is for members who are allowed to trade in WI (A Gifted member, Gifted Trainee, or Gift Guru). The number shows how many different users they have traded with, and the percentage shows what percent of those trades were positive feedback.
If somebody's icon says 45 (100%), then they have traded with 45 different users, recieving positive/nuteral feedback for all their trades. If somebody's icon says 49 (98%), then that person has traded with 50 users, receiving negative feedback form one user.
I hope this helps you understand what you wanted to know
Oh.... and there is a new system with the thread where you apply to become a gift trainee... they now only have the thread open to accept applications during the week.. on weekends it is closed. So if you want to apply, you will have to wait until Monday. Hope this helps
the applications are closed from time to time to allow us to catch up with them and also so we do not over whelm the coaches. Apps could be closed for a weekend, or longer. it will depend on the circumstance.
