To have a better chance of getting accepted as a GT, you want to have a lot more posts than 50, and post a lot of answers in the Somebody Help! section of the forum. You also should post helpful links, and post in a lot of different sections. So don't just stay in the Sombody Help! section. Maybe do five posts in the Webkinz Jr. section, or something like that. It doesn't matter if you have 200 posts or 2,000 posts. It depends on whether or not they are good posts.
Being "Gifted" on WI is much much more than just posting a lot. The details on the process are in the threads above.
The idea is that before you can trade on WI you need to be a member who has been around for a while, participated in a positive way through some great posts and then learns the rules and procedures of trading through a fairly intense training process.
There often are more people wanting to become gifted than there are coaches available so it could take a while before you can join the training forum - but once you think you are ready go ahead and let them know - and keep making great posts and being a WI contributer.
Well, basically you have to have at least 50 fluff free posts. See how many posts I have? I applied to be a GT not too long ago and I got rejected. I don't post much around the Webkinz part of the forum, to be completely honest. So like I said, it doesn't matter how many posts you have, it's about how good your posts are.
Anyway, click the second link there to apply. Good luck, hope you get approved!
Do you want to exchange gifts with other WI members? Great! Please read and follow the instructions below and you will be giving and receiving gifts before you know it!
First, a little info on WI terms and abbreviations:
· Gift Exchange = GE – Where Gifted and Gift Gurus exchange items. · Gift Guru = GG – Gifted members who have more than 50 exchanges after becoming Gifted, 100 posts on WI, 30 days as a Gifted member, have shown excellent GE behavior. · Gifted – Title for members who are allowed to exchange gifts in the GE but do not have GG status. They may exchange gifts on threads only, not through PMs. · Gifted Trainee = GT – WI members who have applied to become Gifted, been accepted, and are in the process of learning how the GE works. GTs may only exchange gifts with other GTs, and GCs. · Gifted Coach = GC – Gift Gurus who have been chosen to teach and guide GTs through exchanging gifts on WI. · Training Section = TS – The section of the forum where GTs learn how to exchange gifts on WI. The TS is only open to Administrators, Moderators, GCs, and GTs.
That’s a lot of G’s huh? Don’t worry, you pick it up quickly and it will be second nature before you know it! Now on to the how part.
How to Become a Gifted Trainee
1.Please DO NOT offer exchanges outside of the GE. Exchanging items in the open forum is not allowed. DO NOT make posts about what you have, want, or will trade. It’s a big No-No and may result in a longer wait for you to be allowed into the TS.
2.Gifting privileges will only be given to members who contribute to the WI forum as a whole. As such, we require that all members post a minimum of 50 posts before applying to be a Gift Trainee. The management reviews EVERY post by EVERY applicant before accepting them as a Gifted Trainee. Posts that are considered "fluff" will not count toward your 50 posts. If your posts do not count and/or your application is denied, DO NOT pm the staff to ask why and complain. Instead, continue to make good, strong, informative posts,then reapply in 2 weeks time.
~Also, each member is allowed as per WI rules, to have only ONE ACCOUNT, this does not mean you can have an account and let a family member use it~
3.You must be a member of the WI forum for at least TWO WEEKS before applying to the TS. Get to know our community before trading.
4.You must agree to work with the GCs. The GCs will guide you until you completely understand the Fair Gift Exchange Policy, how the GE works, and are comfortable with making exchanges.
5.Post your agreement on this thread once you have 50 good posts, have been a member for TWO WEEKS, and feel you can work with the GCs. Your overall member conduct here on WI and your posts will then be reviewed and a decision made.
6.Once your application has been approved, the TS will be unlocked for you. You must read the Fair Gift Exchange Policy, located at the top of the TS board, and post your agreement to follow the Policy. Once you’ve agreed, the next available GC will contact you and help you begin.
7. In order to ensure that all GTs are completely trained before becoming fully Gifted, the number of GT's will vary. This will be determined by the GTs' rate of learning and how many GT's the Gift Coaches can effectively maintain. If the TS is full, it may take a while for a Gift Coach to accept you from the GTS FGEP. You will be notified when space is available. Please be patient while you wait and take this time to review the sticky's and the WI GEV...this will be crucial to your training! If by the second month of you being accepted by a Gift Coach, you have not set up a gift thread, or traded, then you will be removed from the Training section. After which time, you may reapply, but will need to wait a required 2 months.
PLEASE NOTE: Becoming fully Gifted and moving on to the GE is NOT based on number of trades. The coaches will decide when a GT has a good understanding of the rules and exhibits good exchange practices and behavior.
We want you to understand that safety for all members is our number one concern. These guidelines are set in place so that all members exchanging gifts are having fun and enjoying themselves without fear of being ripped off or scammed. The GE is fast paced, exciting, and an absolute blast when you know what you’re doing. We want to ensure that you’re prepared and ready to jump right in!
##Post your agreement below##
PLEASE RESPOND ONLY ONCE, IF YOU RESPOND MULTIPLE TIMES, ALL POSTS WILL ALL BE DELETED!
**There is no longer a time limit as to when admin will get to your application. If your application has been unsuccessful, please do not post your agreement for two weeks. Instead, during that time, make at least 50 good posts on the WI Forum and when you feel you're ready, post your agreement then.**
All the info you need is right here! ^^
Make sure you make good, quality posts, as quality is much more important than quantity (as long as you have 50+ helpful posts). Remember to always follow the rules, too!
