Default Important Notice Regarding Youtube Contest Videos

A new front page story has been added:

Important Notice Regarding Youtube Contest Videos

Originally Submitted by FIA on Fri, 04/02/2010 - 11:39pm.

We think it's great that so many of you are putting together videos for Ganz' "Webkinz Video Star" contest, but we'd like to remind everyone that posting Youtube videos and sharing Youtube usernames is NOT allowed on Webkinz Insider. It is simply too much of a security concern for us.

If you are over the age of 13 and you are interested in creating a video for Ganz' contest, or in viewing the videos other have created, please visit the Webkinz Newz Contest Page for a link and for more information.

Thank you for your understanding. Good luck to everyone who enters!

I am sorry, but I do not see that posting youtube user names is a security problem. Frankly I think links should be okay too, but that is just because I think parents should lock down what they don't want their children to see, or at least take the opportunity to educate them.

If you think your children aren't watching videos --- so much worse than the cute child- appropriate ones the WI members have created for this contest --- you should think again. Have you checked all their friends, the library, the school?

When I went to Webkinz news and tried to click on the link they provided to find the videos it didn't work. I had to cut and paste the link into my address bar. How many kids know how to do that???

Have you seen some of the search results that come up when you type in webkinz there?? I think the direct links in siggies would stop children not familiar with youtube from preforming searches for these videos.

Wouldn't that be a lot safer??? That is just MHO

I am pretty surprised that Ganz has chosen to encourage kids to use YouTube, it's not exactly the most kids friendly website. Every time I go there I see an insane amount of foul language. Not to mention that kids may not think about how they should hide their personal info, like name, age and location on their YouTube profile.

That is up to the parents to monitor, not WI. This website and it's contents and links are. One link takes you to a site that is not always age appropriate for this family friendly forum. Sorry that Ganz chose that site for their contest.
