I'm just shocked! You know the main person at Gantz had to approve this and I think they are out of their mind. They must be getting paid to run these contest to get people to sign up for twitter and utube. I don't consider utube to be a safe site and basically what Gantz has done by posting this contest is direct their main customer (underage children) to an unsafe place. We had people we knew from our neighborhood that were getting divorced and when they seperated their 2 young girls started making videos and putting them on utube (it's amazing to me that kids know how to do all this), they would show their rooms and their whole house, I was shocked. I eventually brought it to the parents attention and they had them pull the videos and cancel their account but I can only imagine the preditors that watched (innocent videos but they gave their names and even had other neighbors children on when they came over to visit without their parents knowing). I only knew because my daughter told me what they were doing and I had explained to her how dangerous utube is. It makes you wonder what type of people Gantz has hired that have come up with these ideas to post on these sites. Thirteen years and up, that's a preditors dream come true, underage teenagers. Gantz you really need to stop and consider what you're doing and how this is going to reflect on you as a company geared toward children.

If I was a parent who was NOT a webkinz fan and was asked to help with this I would have to say, the odds would be good I would not be doing it. NOT because I am a mean Mom, but because if you do not play you have NO idea how "into" it we get.

Anyways I just wish this twitter, youtube etc tec stuff would stop.
Ya, I totally agree.I mean, webkinz has kids around the ages of 8,9,10, etc, and even *edited - please do NOT reveal your age. This is personal information --Missgnomie*

Wow this is what I am talking about. Some parents don't know what their kids are doing and I don't think it is a good idea.

People are saying that they are a company and they need to think like a business. Yes, but when your business is about kids, children, 3-6 and 7-13, those kids can't go on these sites. You have to think about the integrity of your company too!

I was told that they pulled the original "Wishing Well" from the site because parents thought it was too much like gambling. Maybe they will rethink this idea too.

This is really bothersome to me and just from reading the last page of this thread, I see Im not alone. Bravo!

Does Ganz think the average ww player is old enough to be directed towards Utube?? I thought Twitter encouragement was bad but anyone familiar with Utube knows this is wrong!

And kids will go and do it...even though the ask your parents thing is there and the age requirement.

Im on a mostly adult forum and we did not encourage this for the handful of kids there. WI is a huge forum full of kids and I hope everyone is careful and Ganz really rethinks this in the future!!

I TOTALLY agree! This "sounds" like a cool idea, but GANZ is for kids!!!! Kids should NOT be using a site like youtube!Sure yutube has its own blocks to prevent kids from seeing certain videos, but there is still tons of stuff out there that slips through these filters. I'm not sure GANZ thought this one through

I see all the parent's points on this thread. Being a kid, even I agree. I'm not allowed on YouTube whenever I want, and I think that this is really unfair for kids like me. (GANZ is being unfair, not the parents ). The site can be really inappropriate and GANZ shouldn't be encouraging kids to go on it.

Does GANZ really think that kids are going to listen to this?
