How do you become Gifted, or a GT?
Is there a certain thing you have to do? And i heard you have to apply for it, when you apply, is it random, or do they want to hear a certain thing in your application?
And once you become gifted what do you do? LIke how do you actually trade? Thanks a lot!
The guide Newsboys gave you is completely right! You'll learn the ins and outs of tradings while in the trainee area (TGE-Training Gift Exchange), and when you graduate into the big GE (Gift Exchange) you'll be able to trade!
Basically what you do is make a thread with what you have and what you want, and people will post on it, offering fair trades from the WIGEV. You will then add each other to your kinzphones, and then the person with the less trades will send first. Then, you will click on the little feedback thing under their username, and leave feedback
Hope I helped!
Once you get accepted into the Gift Training Exchange, suddenly, the GTE will be visible to you. It's a section of WI that you can't see unless you are a Gift Trainee or a Gift Coach or a Moderator or Administrator. You'll get to trade lesser items there and learn all the protocols of trading. After a few weeks or months you'll graduate to the "Big GE". Then, suddenly, one day, you won't see the training exchange anymore, but 27 folders of trading threads instead! Any Webkinz item you could think of trading for is probably available on somebody's thread.
The people trading here in WI are wonderful, and lots of fun. I think you'll enjoy it, if you make the effort to qualify and apply.
Everyone here has given you GREAT answers - I'd also like to give another link, which will help you in applying - when you apply, a minimum of 50 non-fluff posts is a requirement - Gingerly has created a thread about this, I really think it will help you create your non-fluff posts. http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...gifted-327735/

Oh, don't worry too much. When it's closed, it just means that the staff are trying to catch up on applications, and they occasionally close over weekends, and holidays especially.
There is really no time limit - a good idea would be to check every day if your post is still there - currently, the automated PMs (whenever one of your posts/threads gets deleted/modified) aren't working right now - but you WILL receive a PM if you were accepted!
But if you don't get in on your first try - don't worry too much about that. Applying for the GE takes a lot of time and preparation, and it took me 6 tries. xD
Take a little over 2 weeks to prepare - more posts will help. But remember this - not only is the quantity (minimum of 50) important, but also the quality. The mods aren't looking for 2-3 sentence posts, they're looking for nice, thorough, thoughtful, posts - and they will be able to tell the difference. Posts at like ... the DCT, perhaps, are pretty ... fluffish.
Once you feel your ready, you can apply. Good luck! I hope I'll be seeing you in the GE soon!
