I'll have to check this out on my kids' accounts. I don't recall inappropriate ads in WW, but I know there has been on webkinz Newz and there's no way of turning them off. (I.E. Paris Hilton's new show and a trailer for Super 8" ), so not sure what effect there will be. I just know that I do all the WKN stuff for my kids because I won't let them go on it.

I am glad they made this change. When I called to complain to Ganz a couple of weeks ago EDIT Ganz flat out lied and told me oh, they have nothing to do with the ads on the sides. Then the woman said, oh that is a virus on your computer, and came up with 3 different stories! I said that certain things such as this were not appropriate for my kids.

I believe Ganz should only select ads appropriate for all ages. G-rated!

This is awesome news - THANK YOU GANZ FOR FINALLY LISTENING TO YOUR PAYING CUSTOMERS!!!

I am so sick of seeing the ads I just wish they thought I was four years old.

I see no reason why my preschooler needs to see verizon ads or ads for high heels, my older son has practically abandoned his account because he hates the ads. It's not just google that has a cookie on my computer Ganz does too I guess to follow us around. After I clear my history and cache and go to Ganz or even here I get a warning that the sites want to open something in my computer. I didn't mind their ads reminding me to go outdoors, read a book, turn off the lights and brush my teeth but I can barely stand the constant bombardment of outside junk they try to shove down my and my kids throats.

Ok, i see some game card ads, it looks like it's targeted for 7 year olds. Not even close, GANZ. I'll post here when they figure out the appropiate ads for my viewing.

Centex, this does not mean that they will be posting ads geared to your age range, this means that they won't be posting ads that are offensive when your age range is indicated.
