Is there a way to arrange trades? I want to trade rare items. I am looking for the * edited * and I have NEVER seen it in the curio shop!
If this is not allowed I will erase this thread. I'm just curious and am not sure about the rules.
Thanks a bunch!
The posts that follow give you insight on Trading on WI.
Please do not post about making trades or wanting specific item/s in the open forum.
Nor discuss what you traded in the Trading Room.

There is a section on WI for a group of people on WI that are either "gifted" or are "gift gurus". These people have access to the Gift Exchange, in which you can trade with people using the WIGEV (as located under the Webkinz Information Center tab at the top of the screen).
To be able to trade in the Gift Exchange, you must first be a part of the training program. The rules to get into the training program are as follows:
This is copied from MissyK's GE Info thread.
1.Please DO NOT offer exchanges outside of the GE. Exchanging items in the open forum is not allowed. DO NOT make posts about what you have, want, or will trade. It’s a big No-No and may result in a longer wait for you to be allowed into the TS.
2.Gifting privileges will only be given to members who contribute to the WI forum as a whole. As such, we require that all members post a minimum of 50 posts before applying to be a Gift Trainee. The management reviews EVERY post by EVERY applicant before accepting them as a Gifted Trainee. Posts that are considered "fluff" will not count toward your 50 posts. If your posts do not count and/or your application is denied, DO NOT pm the staff to ask why and complain. Instead, continue to make good, strong, informative posts, then reapply.
~Also, each member is allowed as per WI rules, to have only ONE ACCOUNT, this does not mean you can have an account and let a family member use it~
3.You must be a member of the WI forum for at least TWO WEEKS before applying to the TS. Get to know our community before trading.
4.You must agree to work with the GCs. The GCs will guide you until you completely understand the Fair Gift Exchange Policy, how the GE works, and are comfortable with making exchanges.
5.Post your agreement on this thread once you have 50 good posts, have been a member for TWO WEEKS, and feel you can work with the GCs. Your posts will then be reviewed and a decision made. NOTE-I will post the link to the thread so that you can visit it for yourself! This is not the thread for posting your agreement!
6.Once your application has been approved, and there is a slot available in the Training Section, the TS will be unlocked for you. You must read the Fair Gift Exchange Policy, located at the top of the TS board, and post your agreement to follow the Policy. Once you’ve agreed, a GC will contact you and help you begin.
7. In order to ensure that all GTs are completely trained before becoming fully Gifted, the number of GTs will be limited. The limit will be determined by the GTs' rate of learning and how many GTs the Gifted Coaches can effectively maintain. If the TS is full, it may take a while for approval. You will be notified when space is available. Please be patient and realize that the better trained each Gifted member becomes, the safer and more fun the GE becomes for all to enjoy. If by the second month of you being GT'd, you have not set up a gift thread, or traded, then you will be removed from the Training section. After which time, you may reapply, but will need to wait a required 2 months.
The thread is closed at the moment due to the mods trying to catch up on all the people wanting to get in the Gift Exchange program, but check back frequently to see when they open it again. In the meantime, you could try to work on getting your non-fluff posts up
Seems like Izhannah and EXOteric gave you all the info you need to know. They are so helpful like that. I would highly recommend applying for the gifted training program. It's a fun thing to get involved in, and makes trading with other members so easy. But remember, no trading allowed (or trade talk) anywhere in the forum. Only in the GE (gift exchange) section. Good luck!
