Thank you for all the information posted here. Webkinz World is a fun place for families to play together. Webkinz Insider is a valuable information tool, making our Webkinz playtime a great experience. I read all these posts with interest, but the bottom line is, if you have followed the Policy and Rules to gain access to the Ganz Webkinz World, then your account(s) will not be affected. Many of us are insane Webkinz collectors, but all our items have been "collected" through purchasing pets, trading cards, eStore, Clubhouse Trading and other Webkinz products.

Seeing a comment "wanting to gain back some of the $ spent" indicates not everyone grasps the concept of Webkinz World. Yes, Ganz profits from our purchases, but most people have no idea of how much money Ganz spends to maintain and upgrade Webkinz World for us. Those that appreciate the opportunity to play, have no worries about having their accounts banned, as we are there to play, not profit.

Thanks to everyone at Webkinz Insider for all their hard work.

maybe people wouldn't be so willing to sell WW items on the DL if WW didn't make it so hard to get them. Take this ghost/candy thing...I have ONE piece of candy. I've been on WW for HOURS since FRIDAY (Asian account). My kids have gotten NOTHING. Chances are, we will NOT get enough candy to fill our baskets to get the pumpkin...I would more than likely just trade for them (but won't get the pumpkin as it will be too late.)

There are some diehards out there who will do just about anything to get stuff for their accounts...(I won't, I'm too cheap! haha!)

If Ganz would be more generous with their 'free' giveaways, there might not be such a black market for the virtual items. (Snow White/Dwarf stuff excluded - THAT was the way to 'give stuff away!)

This is just my opinion.

A friend of mine got their account banned and when they called the number all they were told was that they were "duplicating and selling". They have almost no computer knowledge besides webkinz. How can this be? My friend is a collector and is wondering what they may have traded for that may have gotten them banned?

I agree it would be nice if things like the Trick or Treating were easier. My son and I have just one account. We have been in that reading room for 45 minutes at a time and have not seen that ghost even one time! Why didn't they make it more like Doug where you at least stand a fair chance of getting something?

The Snow White event was fair, even finding the diamond in Webkinz Newz didn't take more that 30 minutes! You work for a fair amount of time for a nice reward, that seems to be what WW is mostly like and we love it!

Hi all,

I am pretty new to Webkinz Insider, although what I have seen so far is GREAT!

Me and my kids LOVE Webkinz and having read about this, I am now worried...

I love to collect the older room themes and I just literally today discovered the Trading Room in Webkinz World and traded for the Ancient Egyptian wallpaper that I have needed for a long time. I was excited, but having now read this, I am worried that I got something fake that will lead to me and my son's account getting closed. The deal seemed pretty fair, although more in my favor than theirs - but they were offering a TON of the ancient egyptian theme - I just didn't need the other pieces they offered.

Is there any way to find out for sure? I'd gladly give back the wallpaper now just for the piece of mind.

There isn't any way to tell but I wouldn't worry. They are looking at the people selling the duplicates and the people doing the duplicating. If you're not in either of these categories you should be fine.

LOL --- I wouldn't even begin to know HOW to duplicate something like this. I am about as tech-unsavvy as you could get.

I too have seen virtual items for sale on ebay although I haven't bought any. I suspected Ganz would be against it (I remember similar stuff going down with *****ree and their Gymbucks promotions years ago on ebay), but even if they weren't, it's all too much money. I couldn't justify spending that much money on something that at the end of the day is intangible. That and my husband would KILL me. But I can understand the temptation since it can be so hard to collect some of the things, and Webkinz are the first collectors items that really have caught me hook, line, and sinker.

Thank you for the reassurance...all the same, I think I will be staying away from the Trading Room for a while...
