Default Re: Webkinz World censors ads for underage children

Personally, any ads that cant be seen by all ages shouldnt be on there anyway...I think Ganz makes enough money without the need to run the ads. I am glad that they have done the block ads, if they are going to continue allowing ads. It is bad for me, as when my girls got their accts, I knew nothing about webkinz, so put all the info in my name which means they will still get the ads

To Ganz, there is no such thing as "making enough money"

Seems like a good idea for the younger kids. It also would help the parents who watch over their kids as they play to know that their child(ren) will not be able to see those adult targeted ads.

That is true that ads that are targeted at adults shouldn't be there in the first place but at least Ganz is doing something about it.

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...
Here's a case in point - My Mom is interested in a cruise and I searched for something for her last night and today all my ads are cruise ads. Ok - cruise ads and pizza ads. Maybe someone at my house is cheating on their diet???

I should have said "here at WI all my ads are cruise ads"

I dislike this. If the ads are not age approprieat why are they even being shown on a website marketed towards children? I mean for reals? Its like really odd. I really do not like this at all.
