Default Unanswered: We All Know Now About The Options Tab, But Has Anyone Opted Out???

the reason i am making this thread is to find out,
with the new option in webkinz world to opt out of advertisements by a third party..

if you DID opt out........... what does your screen look like now that ads are gone and
which ads are gone.
i was wondering how it affects your ww screen when you go into your account.

can anyone post a pix of how it looks after opting out ?????

I've been curious about this too. I don't want to OPT out, I decided it would just be easier to stay as is, and I don't want to risk anything. Pictures would be helpful though.

yeah, my thought is that if we decide to opt out and they have another one of those click
it ads, for 30 days we can't. i loved the bee clicking and the chipmunks . i would really
hate to miss things like that.
i am just wondering if the newpaper screen and the room screens are bigger not having ads
on the sides and the top.

That's a good idea. I was thinking the same thing because I don't want Webkinz to be full of nonsense ads.

The ads don't bother me anyway, so why would I opt out. Unless they're new, I don't "see" them anyway.

PLUS, I would want the ability to get new things like the chipmunks and bee stuff. would hate to miss those things, and then couldn't change back when those things happened, per the 30 day rule.

Somebody at Ganz was very clever in the way they offered this option.

Most responsible companies provide some "opt out" for their customers who might object to advertising or mailings from other companies.

But, by adding a 30-day return catch to this, very few people are likely to opt out of seeing what could be clickable ads someday. This was clever so that their advertisers will probably not lose much ad impact to Webkinz World users.

Cute! They satisfy the few hard-core complainers in the public and still do not lose any worth of their adverstising space.

I opted out too. I don't notice anything different in the screens.

I'm still new to Ganz. I didn't know about the quick click thingies. I'm going to opt back in when it comes up again.

Most sites I can't stand the adds on. Not to mention how children want everything.

It does seem like Ganz has handled this just right.

:goo:Woogle, the Google, Ganz!
