Your welcome, to edit if you use tinypic.com after you have done your upload simply hit the edit button, this will open up a box so you can add things like borders, along with any simple text you might like to add as well, there are lots of neat things you can do to edit your pic, that way it makes it truely yours, also might I add don't add tags to your picts or click the share button that way nobody can use your work, that is unless you don't mind other people using it, I have come across many webkinz rooms there so it would be really easy to steal from there if you are not keeping your creations private

Maybe WI should put a "lock" of sorts on certain threads of this forum so outside members can't see and steal pictures as easily?

Why apologize for that, AnthonysMommy? We are not the ones who need to apologize, we aren't the ones who offended, are we Unlike certain things that happen in Webkinz World, where we whinge a bit about the way things are, this is REAL and worth getting upset about. This is FRAUD at the very least and should be a punishable offence. Even a shoplifter faces a stiff penalty for pilfering things of little value. A pocketed tube of lipstick can BRAND you for LIFE with a criminal record. Not to mention the COST to SOCIETY on the whole. Every time someone steals, the price of other things has to go up in order for the seller to recupe their losses. When someone steals SOMETHING, they don't just steal it from 'one meaningless account' (in their minds), they steal it FROM ALL OF US!
I only hope that the person who stole the item and Picture pays a much stiffer penalty than simple removal of the ill-gotten gain.

Man, that's really sad that someone would go and steal someone else's work online just to win a virtual prize. So sorry that happened to Grandmai and Newsboys, Congrats to you both Since there are people that are stealing the images, I would recommend not sharing the pictures of your rooms until after you win the prize and it has been put on your account.

I want to tell Newsboys that I really, really like your room. No offense to anyone else in the contest, but when the winners were announced, your room was my favourite out of the five. Congratulations, and I hope you are soon given the credit you deserve.

I also want to comment on a couple of things people on this thread have mentioned, just to add my 2 cents, so to speak...

1) I think it is a very good idea for to restrict or discourage people from posting pictures of their rooms before a contest closes. When the "share your floral room" thread started, I was wary of theft and chose not to post my room, but it IS really fun for us all to see each others' rooms. It would just be safer if such a thread began after the end of the contest.

2) Some people have mentioned the idea of Ganz verifying the existence of the submitted room in the user's account, as a precaution. While I agree that this room-stealing business is a problem, I would lean toward cutting off the thieves' access to others' ideas (i.e. keep your design secret until the end of the contest), rather than having Ganz trolling through users' accounts.

Also, from my perspective, having to keep the room intact until Ganz gets around to announcing a winner would be a real bummer. Putting together an entire room can be very expensive, so I often use items I already have to decorate my contest room. I scavenge them from around my house, and I return them to their original rooms after I enter the contest. I'd have a lot of awkward gaps in my house during the two or three weeks that it takes Ganz to announce a winner, and that doesn't sound like fun to me.
