I mean no personal offense to you, but I have to ask... Why? As soon as it was announced that it was a TT, there was a barrage of foul language and snide comments and ridicule. Twitter is absolutely an inappropriate forum for a child's holiday. I congratulate the winners, and I sincerely wish them much enjoyment with their new pets and items, but I was APPALLED at the language and attitude in a completely unmoderated and unrestricted forum.... for a kids' game celebration? I didn't want the innocent fun of the game marred by the taunting... as an adult sitting in for a child!!! It was definitely uglier than I expected.

The thing is, Twitter is a worldwide conversation. You can't just stop someone from posting what they think. Not everyone likes Webkinz, and they must ruin it for those that do, unfortunately. I actually don't know why that would be a good thing for it to trend again.

I didn't think it was bad until our time was just about over and once it was over, whoa that was bad.

wow that was complete waste of time!!! Did not know had to register at some website i never heard of. Nice of ganz to answer questions on a board with open language and scrolling so fast before could even type. He did not answer much of anything. They are going to explore the family deluxe membership. Why would they cancel it anyways? I am getting really frustrated with this and considering not buying anything. I spend so much in estore alone. Ridiculous!

You know, I wish I wasn't so into the contest. I could've had better things to do. Now that I think of it, I found the party kind of a waste, all those cheerings and goodlucks from me were not seen, I guess.

go here, Webkinz by Ganz (webkinz) on Twitter and you can see his answers
I went to the link you gave and none of my questions were answered. I don't know if any of them went through because my posts stopped showing up. It was very hard to keep up with and the language was horrible. I hope they come up with another idea next time. Something more family friendly. Congratulations on winning! What an awesome prize. Congrats to all the winners. I know I saw several WI on the winners posts.

I actually agree with you 100%. I can't, and shouldn't be able to, stop people from voicing their opinions whether they agree with me or not. Particularly on a forum designed to encourage open conversation such as Twitter. And really, I don't even want to. I love a good debate. You are completely right and I really hope I did not offend you!

I just feel that a child's game/ celebration/ contest doesn't belong in a forum that open. And apparently Ganz felt that way at some point too, hence the moderated clubhouse and pet names and room names... I just wonder why they go through all that effort to protect kids in WW, then entice them (or their parents on their behalf) into such a free-for-all with the promise of magical retrievers and the sparkle pegasus.

The truth is, I had the option not to attend the "party". As a newbie to Twitter who joined strictly to take part in recent WW contests, I did not even know what a TT was, much less what it would invite. Now I sure do know!

In no way do I feel Twitter should be moderated. I DO feel Ganz should moderate themselves and stick to forums that are child friendly and where most people attending share the same interest in Webkinz.

Again, I really did not mean my comment to seem like an attack on you so I hope that I did not come across that way! I am just mad at Ganz, dsappointed in Ganz.
