How long before you got the Gift Exchange working?
Justin: Ahhhh... Well, I must give credit where credit is due. You see the "Fair Gift Exchange Policies" thread? See the creator? Yep! MissyK is the genius behind the Gift Exchange which came into creation in late April 2007. It was her creative ideas and experience in trading that shaped the Gift Exchange and all of us at WI are forever in her debt.
WI actually started with "The Marketplace", as Kevin and I had no idea about a "trading community", so we thought that the "Marketplace" would be a good place for people to buy and sell actual plushes. Within a week, we realized that it was going to end up being a "virtual trading marketplace", but had no idea what we were doing.
There were quite a few scams right off the bat! There were no entrance requirements, and any member could just jump in and start trading. As we all know, there are some "not so honest" people out there and it was rough. Then came MissyK with her brilliant rules and guidelines for the Gift Exchange, which, under MommaB's guidance, has put WI into the forefront as the safest site for trading in Webkinz World. We've changed the entrance and Gift Guru requirements many times over as we've grown!
