I think this is a good idea for Ganz, but what ads would they have to censor? I don't think any of the ads would be worth censoring, but it is a good idea.

Why would Ganz even accept ads that aren't appropriate for all ages? Webkinz is for children, even if there are a number of adults playing along. If I had an account, now I would have to be careful not to have my account open on the computer next to my child because he might see an inappropriate ad???

I didn't think there was anything worth censoring on webkinz. I mean, if you wanna get really overprotective then I believe I saw one for a dating service on W newz, but it wasn't "bad", I wish they'd focus more on things like this though, I see they take so much time making their lovely popup adds for the estore, yet the years boxes look so tacky, they could have at least put the time into making it so that it replaced it with something cute, like how it used to be adds for the w shop and doctor quack.

I quite agree with those of you who feel that is it so sad that they must block any of the ads that they allow. It would be a blessing to see them removed entirely

Thanks so much for the good information, Dixie, I haven't seen this yet.

PS ~ I would love to see the ads changed at WKN as well. My little ones do not EVER visit that site without my presence at the computer with them!

I agree with you here! The ads at WKN are getting much more adult in nature. A few months ago they had just public service announcements up and I thought we were moving in the right direction, but that did not last long. And the ads do "mine" information from your computer and display local ads or ads related to a search that has been done on the computer previously. This can lead to VERY INAPPROPRIATE ads. WI ads do the same thing. Unfortunately, we had a bad experience with a very adult ad appearing on a public computer on WI- I was lucky the kids weren't looking over my shoulder when it happened! We reported it and got an immediate response from a mod, but we notice that ads still mine information here, so it could happen again...

It's not the account age. It's the birth date you put in.

If we turn 3rd party off that censor will go away!?! Sign my little friend up!

My thoughts exactly!!!! The adds should not be there in the first place. There should be no need to sensor if the adds were not accepted.

But if you turn off 3rd party ads, you cannot play in many of the promotions they run, such as the HOP promotion. Once ads are turned off, you cannot turn them back on for 30 days...
