Question Unanswered: Question regarding trade talk

I know that trade talk is not allowed outside of the GE. However, I was under the impression that meant details like 'I traded this for this' or people saying 'I need this item does anyone have it'. But saying 'ooh look what I got was allowed.' Does it become a problem once someone says 'ooh look what i got in the trading room'? ???

I'm not trying to be difficult, I just need someone to clarify this point for me.

Thanks!

Yes it is a problem. You are not supposed to say anything about trading in the clubhouse not even in the GE.

Hi Tj!
Great question, glad you are seeking help on this one.

You are correct, trade talk is not allowed. You may not ask someone to trade *item* for *item*. And you may not post what sort of items you are looking for outside of the training area or gift exchange.

However, more recently Staff have asked that Trading room talk to be refrained from entirely on the site. That *includes* the gift exchange. Because of hurt feelings and *slight* arguments that have erupted with the ethics and fair trading it was found that it would be easier just to ask users, Not to talk about the trading room. - this includes asking anyone to join you in there, posting "look what I got in the trading room!" or anything such.

NEW WEBKINZ INSIDER POLICY: No Discussion About Trade Room Trades

Back when the Webkinz World Trade Rooms first opened, the Webkinz Insider staff made it clear that we have no authority in Webkinz World and as a result cannot be responsible for bad trades made in the Trade Rooms.

At that time we instituted the following policy:

Quote:
Trade Discussion on Webkinz Insider is ONLY allowed inside of the Gift Exchange area. Trades made in the WW Trade Room should be negotiated in WW Trade Room. If you wish to discuss trades on Webkinz Insider, please consider joining our Gift Exchange.


Over the past several months we have noticed that there has been a lot of discussion on the site regarding trades that have already taken place in the Webkinz World Trade Rooms. While most of the talk has been about fair trades, some of it has been about unfair trades, with a handful of members bragging about how they were able to take advantage of other traders. While we would like to think that our members will aways be fair in their negotiations off-site, we must acknowledge that this is not always the case.

That being said, we find it necessary to make an important addition to the policy above:

Quote:
No discussion of trades made in the Webkinz World Trade Rooms will be allowed on Webkinz Insider.


It is our greatest hope that everyone will understand our need to make this policy.

I think it does count. If you meant to show something off in the "Look what I got!" section, you could just post pictures, but not mention where you got them, to my understanding.

I think the "look what I got" section applies more to real world items or prizes awarded be WW - at least that is how I understand that section. Great question!

---------- SnoopysGirl added 1 Minutes and 27 Seconds later ----------

I meant prizes awarded IN WW , lol!
