  1. WHAT DOES GIFTED EVEN MEAN, BESIDES THAT YOU CAN DO EXTRA STUFF? Gifted means that you are a member of WI that trades in the GE. (Gift Exchange) You trade with other Gifted and Gift Guru members and swap items from Webkinz World. All trades are fair, and no member gets ripped off.
  2. WHY DO YOU HAVE TO BE GIFTED TO DO THE EXTRA STUFF? You have to be Gifted because before that, you are a Gift Trainee. A Gift Coach teaches you how to trade, what the rules of trade are, what the values of items are, and what is not allowed in the GE. (Gift Exchange)
  3. HOW DO YOU BECOME GIFTED? You become gifted by applying to the http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...mation-219641/ thread. You have to meet the requirements listed before applying. Just because you do qualify doesn't mean that you will get accepted.
  4. HOW DO YOU GET/WHAT ARE THOSE LITTLE STARS AND SUCH UNDER AVATARS? The stars represent how many posts you have made in the forums. Here is a list

The stars are for posts.
To become gifted, you must apply from the Official gift exchange information
You get extra stuff (trading) from it because the member is trusted and it's safe.

Good Evening!
I'll try and answer your questions the best I can.


Firstly, please don't write in red.
Red and blue are colors reserved for mod/admins of WI.
Just for future reference.

1. Gifted
Being gifted means that you can trade on Webkinz Insider and that you're part of the "trading" center or gift exchange. If you're not gifted you cannot trade on WI or even talk about it. Trading is the whole reason you become gifted.

To become gifted, you must apply to be a part of the gift exchange. WI doesn't accept everyone right away, due to limited number of gift coaches. Gift Coaches are those that teach you how to be a good trader at WI.

To become gifted you must go through an extensive process.
First you're a gift trainee (if accepted to the gift exchange) and are in the training gift exchange then once you do well there you'll move up to the gift exchange where you become gifted and are free to trade on WI (only in the gift exchange). And once there you can apply to be a gift guru which is like a special gifted member (that's what I am). They get more privileges in the Gift Exchange.

For more information you can visit this thread about the gift exchange:
http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...mation-219641/
And to make helpful postings for the gift exchange:
http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...gifted-327735/

2. Why do you have to be gifted?
Well, if WI let EVERYONE trade there would be those that would take advantage of the system. People would join just to rip people off and some people wouldn't know the value of their items according to WI. That's my opinion on it, but I'm not sure what the EXACT reason is. Except that it unifies things and proves that you're a dedicated member and can properly trade without ripping anyone off and fairly trade with other members.

3. How do you become gifted?
I hit that above... to become gifted you must first apply:
http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...mation-219641/
And meet the requirements for applying.
(Helpful posting guide here: http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...gifted-327735/)
If accepted you then become a gift trainee where you're a "gifted" member in training.
There a gift coach will show you the trading ropes here at WI and make sure you understand values, fair trading, ect.
When you have a good knowledge of the ropes, values and exhibit good trading skills (among other things) you will be moved up to the Gift Exchange where you become a fully gifted member.

4. Little Stars Under Avatar?
Well, there are a few things under your avatar.
One are a series of blocks, which is known as reputation.
Reputation is given to you when you are found being helpful by other members or a variety of other reasons.

Here's the rep guide for WI:
Reputation - Webkinz Insider Wiki

As for the little stars, those relate to post counting.
What color they are depend on ranking and how many posts you have.

Here's a guide on the post counting and stars:
WI Ranks - Webkinz Insider Wiki

I hope this helps!

  1. WHAT DOES GIFTED EVEN MEAN, BESIDES THAT YOU CAN DO EXTRA STUFF?
Gifted means that you have been accepted into the GE where you can trade with fellow members.
  1. WHY DO YOU HAVE TO BE GIFTED TO DO THE EXTRA STUFF?
You have to be gifted so that they can trust you!
  1. HOW DO YOU BECOME GIFTED? To become gifted you must make 50 non fluff posts and follow all the rules. You then will become a Gift Trainee. Then you and your Coach will go thru the challenges of becoming Gifted. When your coach thinks your ready they will make you Gifted.
To know what you need to do to be accepted to become a Gift Trainee please read this link.
