"Gifted" is when you can trade items with other people on WI.You get access to a special section of WI forums just for Gifted members.You have to apply and have to have at least 50 posts.I would recommend applying if you'd like, it's a ton of fun.
I think it is totally worth it, but you will have to make that decision for yourself. The time required varies. After training, for the first couple of months I just visited other people's GEs and didn't maintain one of my own. This way doesn't require much time at all. Maintaining your own GE requires just a little bit more, but like others have pointed out, you can set your own hours on your GE. You will just need to check it once a day or so. If strapped for time, you can also have it closed temporarily.
Becoming Gifted iis more than just being able to trade. I've met a lot of great people there I hope you decide to apply, I think you will find it worth it. I know I have.
Thanks so much for posting your question. I just applied for gifted and I have been pondering what am I getting into. Everyones answers have helped me know that I made the right decision in applying. I have time.....lots of time.
I was worried that I do not have enough "stuff". I am an extremely frugal worlder. Hubby wishes it was real money. ha ha. I go to the trading room occasionally and most of the time I am disappointed in what is offered, the attitudes of the people there and all the time it takes. I will give plusses that there are decent people in there and sometimes we just chat instead of trading. All those people have been added to my friends list. I do still kind of worry what all it entails. I wish you much luck and good gift exchanging!
Like others here have posted, it really is up to you to evaluate if you would enjoy it. If you like decorating, dressing up pets and even just helping others I think you would enjoy the gift exchange.
The training process does take some time and commitment, I would recommend putting aside 30 minutes to an hour each day if possible, but others fair just fine checking in twice or even once a day for 10 minutes or so. I know this can seem like a lot, but this is to ensure that you are the equipped with the best possible understanding of the WIGEV (The webkinz insider gift exchange value guide) and rules and practices on the gift exchange. It is extremely safe in comparison to the trading room and you will get a fair value for your items.
It does surely take alot of time being a trainee, not hours though maybe 30 minutes per 2 days about?, but once you're gifted, it surely pays off. When you're giftedd you don't have to make a GE, so it's easier to manage everything! There is the GEDCT to use once you're gifted too, and the many give-aways in the GE! Hope that this helps!
Should you apply? Well, I don't know. You tell me. Do you think that you have the time to go through with everything, willing to trade and follow the rules? If you think you're gonna only pop in a few times a week, you might wanna reconsider. The GE isn't really a "once a week" thing, you really have to be determined. If you're interested in trading, like meeting new people, will be able to go on often, than you could consider applying. Trading itself is very fun, once you get through the whole training, you'll realize that it's very worthwhile.
If you aren't interested, that's fine too. WI has so much more to offer than trading, why do you think we have so many forums?
I hope we see you in the GE soon!
