You may not access the gift exchange yet. You must have more than 50 good posts that benefit the webkinz insider community and be a member for more than two weeks. Then, you can apply to become a gift trainee by posting on this thread, click here. Then, you must go through the gift trainee process to become fully gifted. Good luck with this! :]
** Oh, and click here to learn how to make good posts on webkinz insider! **
If you read both of those threads you should have much more information about becoming gifted!
I am actually gifted. When I joined the site and became gifted, the process was different. When I joined, there was no 'gift trainee' category so I went straight to gifted.
The gift exchange is a wonderful series of threads here on webkinz insider. When you become a gift thrainee, you will have access to a new part of wi, a whole new section of threads! You will then be able to open a 'gift thread' in the gift exchange area. On the gift thread, you can list what items in webkinz world that you are willing to trade (ie, exclusives, pet specific items...) and what items that you would like to recieve.
Then, people will post on your gift thread and offer items. For example, if you had a green lava lamp, someone could offer to trade you their zingoz bubble blower for your gree lava lamp. If you decide to trade, then you post back and agree to their trade. Then, you will add eachother on webkinz world, and you will send your item(s) to them and they will send their item(s) to you.
Once you send and recieve your items, you will leave feedback for the person. This will make your gift count go up. It may seem confusing now, but as you become a gift trainee, a gift coach will help you learn the process of the gift threads. You'll be a pro before you know it! :]
Just like cleothepig said, you need to be a member for over 2 weeks. Also, you need to have 50 non-fluff posts. This can be difficult. I'm still working on the 50 non-fluff posts. A non-fluff post must be at least a paragraph long, or so I've heard. Just to be sure you have 50 non-fluff posts, try to aim around 60. This is a non-fluff post along with cleothepig's posts. Hope this helps
Thanks that really helps me understand how to get there because I had no idea.Are you a gift trainee?What does the gift exhange do and what is the purpose?
The idea behind gift exchange is to let you trade with other members to exchange your excess items for items you need and want.
It's a little like the Webkinz World Clubhouse, in that you can trade items. The clubhouse is superior in that you are guaranteed the item will come to you--you do a simultaneous trade which must be confirmed by both parties. On WI Gift Exchange, there must be trust between the parties. So an elaborate system of protocols and hurdles you must meet to be allowed in has been constructed to assure that all the gifteds are trading fairly and following procedures. Those who don't get banned. The person with a lower number of trades sends their items first as a gift as well. Then the second party sends their agreed-to items. Then they both post feedback in the system that they exchanged gifts and it went well. The percentages of fair trades is very high so it's a good system I think. (I am just getting into it as a gift trainee).
The read ADVANTAGE to the WI Gift Exchange is that it's not hit-or-miss as to whom you meet at the trading table. You can check on the reputation of your fellow trader. You can see lists of available items and pick with whom you would like to trade. You know before going into a potential deal that they have an item you want and are willing to trade. You may also read in what they are interested so you will know in advance before you approach them if you have anything they might like. This really tips the odds of a successful trade and makes WI GE much more attrractive to me!
Hope this helps! By the way, everyone has been very helpful to me in learning the process--the resources here are awesome, and I mean the people, not only the work they have done in guides and lists, etc. They really make exchanging and collecting things Webkinz fun!
