Default Ganz Blocks Certain Advertisements Based on Player Age

A new front page story has been added:

Ganz Blocks Certain Advertisements Based on Player Age

Click the image to open in full size.
For months now we have been hearing complaints from players about the advertisements showing up in Webkinz World. There was a concern that many of the ads were "too old" for the children visiting the site. As of today, we now know that Ganz was listening to these posts.

Starting this morning, many players noticed that some of the advertisements were replaced with a note showing the player's age. Here you can see a picture from an account owned by a grandchild of one of the staff members. It appears that Ganz has ranked the third party advertisements by whether or not the are appropriate for certain age groups, and any ads that are ranked above the player's age are being blocked.

That's a nice solution but I'm under 18 yet ads aimed towards adults do not bother me one bit. The censorship looks horrible, but I guess it's more targeted towards little kids.

Couldn't they have just made it so that accounts over a certain age will see certain ads?

Also, I don't see any Webkinz Ads anymore. All ads are the nasty and plain white with *age* text on it. Is the censorship for all ads? Or just the adult ones?

I think that this is a wise move on the part of Ganz they should become more popular with the parents now and should not have to release an entire months pets in the Limited Edition catagory.
