"We recognize that many items in Webkinz World are hard to come by and that trading may seem difficult, but we must ask that all members abide by the User Agreement and keep all item exchanges within Webkinz World itself."

There you go. Straight from a bullieten.

Thanks!

First, an example to help others understand:

Jim plays Webkinz and Pet Pals. He has a super bed, but he wants a Pet Pals Trophy.
Jane plays Webkinz and Pet Pals. She wants a super bed, but has a Pet Pals Trophy.

They meet in a chat room and agree to trade the super bed for the Pet Pals Trophy.
Jim send the super bed to Jane's Webkinz account, Jane sends the Pet Pals Trophy to Jim's Pet Pals account.

Hope that makes sense.

Second:
I'll be sure to first notify the owners/moderators of the other chats first. Perhaps they aren't aware that they re breaking the rules. If they continue after I notify them, I'll report them immediately.

Thanks so much for the help!!

If two people make a private agreement that one is going to "gift" the other with an item I don't honestly see that it is something ganz can prevent. If Jim sends a superbed to Jane's WW account and Jane sends a trophy in thanks to Jim's Pet Pals account how are they going to stop that? I understand what you are saying and in reality it may not be legal under ganz user agreement but it is still next to impossible to enforce.

I was informed that if a site supports or encourages the illegal activity, they could be shut down. Also, if it can be confirmed that such activity occurred, the users accounts can be closed.

So I guess it's more an issue of the site encouraging the illegal trades than it is of finding every Jim and Jane who trade illegally. If a site is promoting illegal trades (ex. mods asking for illegal trades, mods supervising illegal trades, etc.) then I believe that action will be taken against the site and the mods.
