But it's rude since you joined WI and it doesn't matter if you have joined more than just WI but you shouldn't promote it.

WI is even with the other WI sites. It might have all-adult staff vs. anyone can be staff, but we should be able to promote sites through signatures if we like the site.

I mostly agree with Baby in that there is an issue. However, I also agree with some of the other points that were made. For example, some sites that are advertised need more members and the WI members would not be leaving this site. Also, other sites could help give info to members. However, it is a bit rude to post those things on your siggie. I think a good solution would be to have a special "more information" area where members can send in the link to a webkinz website and tell a little bit about it. Websites can be approved by the WI staff so it doesn't get clogged up with unwebkinz-related sites. Members could even rate the links. What do you think?

Oh, and thanks Baby for bringing this issue up! It appears that many members are concerned about this issue (no matter what their opinion). Remember everyone, we are all just trying to make a better place, so nobody get upset.

I would have to disagree with the Approval/Rating thing. If someone doesn't follow the rules on a site and gets banned, that site could be a great site, but they could rate it 1 star and at least somewhat hurt its reputation on WI. Plus, with the approval thing, it would just add a bit more of a burden to the Mods as more forums are created on an almost daily basis. Maybe these are just my opinions, though

I don't really agree, sorry. What if your best friend made an awesome webkinz website? Wouldn't you want to advertise it? It seems kind of rude to other forums to block them out like that.

I think this says it all. There are lots of sites that aren't in direct competition with WI and if you want to visit them or provide a link fine. But honestly, if you want to find another webkinz site, just use Google. I don't think WI should have to provide you with another source of information because you are too lazy to find it yourself. It does cost money to run this site and there are many people who put a lot of work into making it run well. I don't think you should just piggyback off WI with no apologies and think you're entitled to do it. In the end, it's a matter of ethics and judgement. You MAKE the call.
