Thanks for sharing this with us! While I love the GE, I think it will be great for some people.

Well, it looks nice enough but I hope they are going to have enough seats in those rooms for all the people currently in the GE. Otherwise, it's going to be a big game of musical chairs. Or Webkinz Smackdown.

I appreciate that Ganz has seen a need to introduce the trading capabilities into the game, and while it is a fantastic idea, I have to agree that the concept of a forum-based trade system is more appealing to me than this is. While this allows you to trade items, it still doesn't seem to provide anyway to 'Market' yourself or your items, or to include any value system to ensure fair trades are happening (I could see my 5 year old son going in here and trading away all his exclusives for just about anything).

I think I'll continue to support the WI GE as my main trading system, not only for the security, but as others have questioned above - what kind of system load are we going to see when this comes out? If it's anything like the Stadium, then MANY users will find themselves unable to even participate. Even now I've never been able to watch, let alone enter, a Stadium event.

I'll give Ganz kudos for the idea, but hope some of these questions are answered before the room is launched.

I hope they have some kind of system that's kinda like the WI GEV so people don't get taken advantage of. When I trade on there, I will probably go by the WI GEV, but some people might not think that's fair. I for one definitely won't be taking advantage of anyone.

Well...it sounds alright...

Sounds like there are some definite advantages and disadvantages already. I'm sure that, unless Ganz makes a system with values of items, lots of younger children will get ripped off! It should be its own place, not a crowded room in the clubhouse, which doesn't ever load correctly for me anyway. I think from the pictures that it looks pretty decent. The past few major things Ganz has done with WW haven't gone well, but that doesn't mean that the trading area won't!
