Re: BREAKING NEWS: "My Page" Feature Arrives in Webkinz World
I was surpirsed to have been one of the lucky ones to test this new feature. I have it on my American account only. I'm relatively new to Webkinz World so I was shocked to see it in my list this morning!
Anyway, it's cute. It's kinda neat, I suppose. I don't know how much good it will do most people. I get to see what my family's doing as far as what pets they've recently adopted and what their most recent scores are in the games they play.
Anyone who has this feature can visit my page and see what games I like and what activities are my favorites, as well as my favorite pets...(shhhh...we shouldn't have favorites, should we?)
At this time there are 5 or 6 different backgrounds, aka wallpaper for those MySpace fans out there, and buttons you can edit to show your favorite things. There is no place to add personal info about yourself, so don't worry about that. It's definitely kid-safe. But, you can add friends....well, you're supposed to be able to. I've not been able to do that yet. It keeps telling me that the person I wanted to add has too many invitations already and to try back later. Maybe that's because it's in the TEST phase.
Anyway, it's a cute, but not necessarily necessary addition to Webkinz World. Just my point of view.

IDEA FOR NEW "MY PAGE" FEATURE: After I posted my reply I had a flash...careful, that doesn't happen very often.
I think that to make "My Page" more fun and interactive, yet still safe, they should add a "Comment" Section, just like in MySpace, only don't allow just anything to be typed in. There could be a list of cute or cool comments to choose from, such as "Love your page!", "We like the same games!", "My Panda has the same name!", etc.
That way, we would know that someone visited our page and that it was appreciated. Also, they could add child-appropriate "Stickers", similar to the graphics left in the MySpace Comments section. Who on here, who has a MySpace page doesn't love seeing someone post nice things in their comment section?
Well, again, just my opinion, but I thought it was a good idea, actually.
