Red face Awful WI Advertising!

So I can understand that these types of websites need advertisements in order to get some revenue and support the system. However, when I was on the website on my phone earlier I wasn't happy AT ALL! I was on my phone browsing the threads when my thumb accidentally hits an ad, to which the Play Store (I have Android) opened up, and it was for an "Australian" dating app! I was shocked! I mean, some members get bashed and in trouble because of the fact that this is considered a children website since Webkinz is targeted for children, so why can't they filter out what ads can be used and what can't be? I mean really now! People get in trouble for talking about trading yet the website is allowed to have such ads?

Be careful not to click ads! Download "AdBlock Plus" for your computers and it helps! Trust me!

I 100% agree with this! Thanks for bringing this up. You made a great point. I'm sick and tired of always seeing ads for resorts, insurance, ads that say Why was this video banned watch before it disappears, lose weight with this one trick( why am I seeing that ad? I don't have to lose weight. I'm healthy and at a healthy size ), Don't buy survival food until you read this, adoption, and I also get political ads about Congress, FEMA, and ads about the President's food confiscation bill( I'm super tired of seeing those food confiscation ads because THEY APPEAR ON EVERY PAGE AND THAT'S THE ONLY AD I SEE ). Earlier this year, I kept seeing ads about an R rated movie that had a bad word in the title( The Knights of Bad( blank )dom ), and a friend of mine told me that they kept seeing ads for adult only games and they don't even play those at all.

I understand why you guys could be angry or even afraid your parents are thinking you're doing something you're not, or that kids will come on this website and see these ads and not be able to play webkinz anymore. I personally don't have a problem with the ads considering i'm pretty mature and grown up and some people aren't (and that's not a bad thing, some people aren't ready for things like that). However, I do agree the ads have to tone it down a bit.

They have to have some way to keep the website up and running. I'd rather them have ads from children websites rather than these fake ads with thinks kids shouldn't see, I just don't know how they can fix this problem. :/

WI does not get to select the advertising that is on the sidebars. The ads are selected for us. They are supposed to be in a family group of sites but sometimes other things seem to pop into the mix.

Thank you for reporting this. I will make send a note to have this looked into.
