Default Re: Important Notice Regarding Youtube Contest Videos

Good for WI!!...Youtube is one of the sites I monitor very closely with my 2 children ( ages 9 and 12) While much of the available views are not too bad..many, many of the remarks concerning them are not appropriate for children...I was more than a little disappointed that Ganz chose that media for a contest...IMO...absolutely not for the target group for Webkinz!! BTW... Thanks so much for the update!!

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?
I do aggree with you.

Are we aloud to give a link of our Contest Entries to friends on here? Or is that not aloud either? :/

I was one of the ones with mixed feelings about this youtube contest...Why would they encourage kids to use a site like that (and I had reservations about the twitter thing as well)???

I then came to the realization that perhaps, Ganz is trying to get the PARENTS involved...Obviously there are loads of involved parents on WI, but outside of WI, how many parents really care about their kids and their webkinz?

I know that we had a BLAST making our video together-and win or lose, we had so much fun, and now have a fun memory of our good times together...

All that being said, I totally understand WI's stance on no posting any links or usernames...after all, don't we all come here because we feel safe? It only takes one weirdo to ruin it for everyone...
