Internet Ad Companies sell packages to sites and some they sell are called "family friendly" (their words).

I know that is what WI purchases and if you EVER see something offensive on here, please let a staff member know so they can make Justin aware. He WILL do something about it for WI.

Unfortunately Justin doesn't have any control over WW or WKN. Best bet is have an adult call Ganz customer service to let them know what is being posted on their site. If you have a screen shot to send them, even better.

LOL! You're right not to post it here! And I'm sure if Ganz knew, it wouldn't be posted on their sites either!

I prefered pre-ad Webkinz World. This is just sad. At the very least, they should monitor the ads or have it set up so WW members can alert them to inappropriate ads.

<P>Someone wrote about this other ad on the Webkinz newz site and so I went and
looked and thought this was also inappropriate.... and I'm far from a very
"religious" person. On the new "HOP" trailer is a brief scene where the Big
Yellow Chick is painting and Easter egg, and he turns it around to show a
smaller chick. Painted on the egg is a copy of Michaelangelo's painting where
God is reaching out to touch fingers tips with Adam. Instead of Adam there is
the big stupid yellow chick. </P>
<P> </P>
<P>As I said, this isn't Ganz's "fault" I find this very sad that this rverent
religious icoon is being used as a joke, and even worse that they saw fit to put
it in a trailer to highlight it. Ganz makes the decisions on what to put on
their sites and this HOP advertising hit 'overload' way before the ads changed
to add new content, and so this religious reference. Webkinz is one of at
least 9 other kid's sites or parent areas that I've seen massive HOP campaigns,
trailers and ads for. </P>
<P> </P>
<P> Like I said I might be being too touchy on other people's behalfs here. I
also read here how Ganz is doing another Touring Van thing this summer. The van
came no where near where I live, a huge metropolitan area, but someone was nice
enough to gift me with a touring van (Thank's Ike!). If Ganz has enough money
for all this, why can't they fix their site so it works? Why do we have seven
ads from other companies on every page, even if you have a deluxe account with
on most sites would exempt you from ads? I have no kids but I always wonder why
the parent groups slam TV. McDonald's, breakfast cereals, for marketing to kids
nonstop, especially at Christmas, and yet a "safe" children's site like Webkinz
has turned into one long informercial. I have seen kids say it here themselves
and well put - why isn't buying a webkinz pet, or five of them, good enough to
have access to the site? And I've asked the adults a few times--would you go
pay $14.99 or $50.00 or $1500.00 a year for a site that is buggy, full of ads
and glitches? </P>
<P> </P>
<P>I notice how the "one per account per day" stuff always works well, and the
ads increase on every page. If it wasn't for Webkinz Insider I wouldn't have
known 2/3rds of the stuff going on on Webkinz, because Webkinz doesn't seem to
care to tell people. </P>
