Sometime there are some dumb ads, but this website is the best for Webkinz. Webkinz would be really hard to do if I din't go to WI first

This is completely inappropriate for a children's website! Can someone who actually makes the advertising decisions for this website please reply and tell me if this is actually an approved advertisement or not. If it is not a mistake, I will have to ban this site from the children's lists. I really do not want them exposed to suggestive things at this age. Thank you for your time. Lara Z.
Greatlake, I haven't seen the ad, and have not read all the posts but this bothers me from what I have read, as my grandkids are small, they are here everyday and we all get on our laptops.......this is quite disappointing. I think you should PM a moderator or admin about this. They can surely take care ofit and give some sort of answer. I am sure that Justin or Wendy hasn't seen it or maybe is in the process of correcting it. This way youcan go stright to the source. I hope this helps and thank you for the warning. They do their very best to keep this site safe for children, I would be interested in what you find out........thank you.

They may be able to fix it.....alot of time those are ads that help pay for the site and if that is the case, they would have some control over it. I know that they would never approve of something like this on a kid's site.........no matter what age!!!

I have not seen it, but WebkinzInsider.com, I'm sure, does not approve of ads like that. PM a moderator or an administrator, and they will get things sorted out quickly.

WebkinzInsider is a very safe site. I'm sure what you saw does not happen often, but next tim eit does, plese contact a staff member with a link.

Default Re: Inappropriate ad at bottom of home page

Oh, my.....we're still talking about this ad?

When I logged on to WI----three hours ago----everyone was talking about this ad!

I'd venture to say that:
A--most children are not looking for ads when they log on to WI; they are interested in finding their friends, reading the threads, and posting about their WEBKINZ.

and B:
I've never seen the ad with the bikini clad woman, but I have a very strong suspicion that any ad on WI, could not possibly be worse than the commercials on television, or indeed most of the television shows that most children are allowed to watch.

Great job to all those who suggested we should ignore it.

I have located the urls on some inaporpriate ads. We are currently in the process of blocking them. Anytime you see an inapropriate ad please let an admin or mod know and we will have them removed ASAP.

Thank you,
