I know! I hate those adds! There are some adds that not even adults should see (I am a kid) Well I have a solution. I used to see all kinds of adds on WI because I used an internet called Safari. But I have switched to Firefox which automatically blocks adds. So every time I get on WI, or any website other than webkinz I always use Firefox. I hope I helped!

They are referring to the ads here on WI. They have said it many times before and I will say it for them again--they don't control the ads.

I've seen this too. Zwinky has too much "Exposure". And well... yeah.
agreed. i think they need to block Zwinky and IMVU (lots of "exposure" and shirts that say stuff like "NAUGHTY") and this one i saw for a website called "Wonderland", were in the background there was a naked girl and naked guy in a hot tub

Although I have not seen the ad being talked about now I have seen the IMVU and I have to totally agree that it is a little more revealing than I would like my young ones seeing.

Part of why I enjoy WI so much is that I don't have to worry as much about what my kids will read/see. I know that WI does it's best to filter what they have control over but not sure if they have control over those ads or not.

Another thing I have noticed more and more is people using tinypic to post pictures.Although that is fine I have had 3 this week that when I clicked to see their picture there was a few VERY inappropriate pictures on the same page. I don't think they were the users pictures just other pictures being advertised or however it is they do it there. Personally I use photobucket. But I can't allow my kids to open any pictures from tinypic anymore and I won't open them if they are anywhere in the room. It was that bad.
