I can see our traders working their deals here then using the new system to swap items instead of using Kinzpost. That is the only thing I can see being different. If your trade involves more than three items, you'll have to switch user names to another one of your accounts...or wait until the next day as you'll be limited to the number of items you can transfer with one person in a day.
I had not thought of this scenario.....that would make it much easier....only drawback being to do that you both have to be online at the same time and that doesn't always happen. I will continue to use WI for my trading as I enjoy being able to negotiate for what I want and for what I offer. And I also think the "rules" for becoming gifted are just fine. There is no reason for them to change.

Also...how many rooms will there be? Can you see trying to get into a trading room? Then finding the other user? I'm with you.

The only enhancement to our trading experiences would be the greater security because of the trading interface as WW will never guarantee Kinzpost.

But honestly...until its out...and we all get to play around on it some...none of us will really know how we will integrate it on a personal basis.

Yes...I like how on WI you can actually interact and negotiate. It makes it more fun...and seem more real than WW's will.

I think we should wait to see the new system before assuming there is no way to trick it. Ganz's history on new features is not one to inspire confidence.

The new system might enhance the system in place here, providing a better way to do the transfer of virtual items than KinzPost. As others have pointed out already, it is unlikely to provide as interactive an exchange, allowing discussions. If anything, I would guess it will open up even more scammers as they figure out ways to trick people into unfair exchanges using the new system.

One of the big advantages of the system here is that an unfair trade can be noticed and reported by anyone who is gifted. Flag the post of an unfair exchange and the moderators will notice and take action. That provides a lot of oversight.

I'm looking forward to seeing what Ganz's new system for 'secure' exchange of items is. I doubt however that it will replace the exchange system here.

I would have phrased that last part differently. It might be better to promise 'nor will we relax our requirements.'

I think it will be kind of difficult to get a fair and secure trade when you cannot talk! LOL!

Also.. lets be honest.. if you dont want to take the time to become gifted (I'm not directing this at any one specifically)... theres half a dozen other websites where you can go to trade items on W... WI is not the only one thats for sure...

but WI as far as I know is the only one that really cares about their users... has put a system into place where you have to get gifted and are held accountable... I recently visited another site where all you had to do to be considered a trader was post a message saying you would be a good one.. and really you didnt even have to do that cuz you already had access to their GE, but they asked you to do it before you opened your thread... but there arent any rules of any kind.. there is a feedback system but its just numbers and since users cant see what the actual messages behind the numbers are or who gave them, its pointless... one user can give you 5 positive feedbacks for the same trade.. and it shows as 5 positive feedbacks and you have no idea if they traded with 5 people or what... also there is no guide to how long a trade can take, AND people cut in on your trades and there isnt any protocol about offering on something that someone is already offering on etc...

Kids do think just like legalcat said. If they don't like something (even a very valuable rare or retired item) they would be willing to swap it for any pretty cheap thing they see.

How will the new system prevent those kinds of very unfair trades? Doesn't seem to be any way.

Seems like this new trading area might be easily abused by some unethical people. It is so much safer on the WI Gift Exchange.

With all the problems trying to get into the webkinz stadium I cannot even image the wait time trying to get into a trading room.
