Hiya!

I would like to address the adds on the sides of the screens. I know it is a motivation for members to support WI, and I respect that. But As people have said there are 7 and 8 year olds on here. I am pretty sure that google controls the adds, But some of them are gory and inappropriate. The webkinz adds are ok and the disney ones are fine, its the other ones. I hope some other WI members agree. My suggestion would be to moniter the adds or remove them.

Thanks!

Webkinz Insider is signed up for "Family Friendly" advertisements. Unfortunately, we don't get to review the ads before they pop up here on WI, and sometimes ads make it through that we really don't want. If you ever see an ad that you feel is inappropriate for WI, please notify a member of the staff. That way, Justin can review it and, if necessary, block it so it doesn't show up on WI again. --FIA

I agree! I keep seeing this one for an online forum thingy that's not really inappropriate, but, like, i wouldn't want my sister viewing it . . .
You can always report ads to an admin.
You CAN remove ads if you become an insider insider subscription.
Great thread!

WI does not show inappropriate ads in my opinion... I once had an issue where inappropriate ads were showing up and it was as a result of spyware that had infected my computer and "overtook" the appropriate ads that WI normally has on it's site. My suggestion is to take a screen shot of ads you consider inappropriate and pm them to a mod or admin that is online so they can get it to Justin. But you also may want to scan your computer... the spyware that infected my computer was IN NO WAY the fault of WI. It came from somewhere else and then "highjacked" the ad spaces on WI and put in it's own inappropriate ads!!! I never even realized it until I asked Cows4you and she told me about scanning my computer which I did and then found the spyware and deleted it. But I repeat, it DID NOT come from WI!

btw... I'm seeing pizza hut ads, ads for phones, web virtual toy, etc... what are you seeing?

If you see an innropriate ad, you should always PM an admin about it. Creating a thread just brings attention to it. WI is signed up for family friendly ads but sometimes bad ones slip through. Thanks for bringing this up

all of my ads are on the sides, though MOST of them are inappropriate. it's kinda annoying to have to see stuff like that on such an innocent site.

One time I had a bad ad come through WI. It was pretty disturbing. It was like a scary movie. It was talking too. I quickly turned away from the page.
