Hello~I am really new to this.....But....I agree that we should not get mean towards others who choose to shop at the E~Store.
I did purchase a few Charms thru the E~Store .....so I could get into the Charm Forest ~ sence I started the Webkinz's World late this summer and I could not find any Charms at my Gift store near my home sence they had been sold out. Other than that I would love to buy a few more things ...I just can not afford them at this time.

Another voice in support of SweetsMom's suggestion of a separate discussion area for eStore stuff. (Credit also to volleyuup's suggestion in a separate post.) I've lurked about the WI forum for quite some time, but have only recently registered and begun posting. After posting twice in one eStore thread, I've sworn off reading any of them.

It is now well established that not everyone feels that the eStore offers sufficient value for their hard-earned dollars. I respect that, but I'm cool with the eStore and I'd like to move on, thanks.

I like the idea of a place where I could read/post about the eStore without having to avoid people insisting that it's a "rip-off". (Maybe it's me, but that term is so unremittingly negative in this context that it flutters like a sparkly red cloth in front of a cranky bull nursing a hangover. "Rip-off" says everything, yet nothing, and it doesn't exactly encourage discussion.) It would be great to have a little slice of the forum where people who use the eStore - or who are interested in it - can share information without having to defend their decision. This is not to suggest that such an area would be criticism-free and bursting with rave reviews, frolicking kittens, and joyful smilies - some eStore aspects will disappoint, same as any other WK feature. I'd expect that discussion of whether or not prices are reasonable would be appropriate, as posters in such an area should be in agreement that paying Real Money for virtual-only WK stuff is an acceptable choice. eStore supporters already have varying levels of satisfaction, and a dedicated area for discussion would allow people to feel more comfortable in expressing what they aren't happy with - without the danger of someone using that as yet more "evidence" that Goober should send an operative back in time to prevent Ganz from implementing the eStore and save us all from ourselves.

I also rather like EXOTERIC's thought regarding a section for anti-eStore people to vent. Dunno whether it's practical to implement (let alone advisable), but I'm sympathetic to the anti-E contingent's desire to talk amongst themselves, even if I desperately want to avoid reading those discussions.

I really hope so as well for the following reasons: (rather than retyping all of this I am quoting myself from another thread)

View Post Originally Posted by Tj03

If you don't like the estore fine if you do (and I do) fine. I do not like the very noticeable divide that is forming. I was reading this forum for quite a while before I became a member, I wanted to know what type of place it was before I joined. The WI that I saw then is not the one I see now. I see a lot of conflict and a lot of bashing. That is not why the site was created. Now I know people have a right to express their opinions, however we must all be careful how we go about doing that. All WI members as a WHOLE not conflicting factions, need to rally to stop all of the negativity and fighting to keep the forum a happy place for all of us who love our webbies to get together and share our hobby (read: obsession) with other people who understand and enjpy WW. That is the WI that I saw when I was lurking, and that is what prompted me to join.
That's all...

I've already posted agreeing..And I still DO agree, I'm just going to add to my post.

I think it would be a great idea, because all these eStore threads/posts clog up the General Discussion..Yes, General Discussion is for anything Webkinz World related, but maybe some threads about Webkinz are getting pushed aside with all the eStore posts...And since there is a LARGE number of eStore threads, there should probably be a section for them. It helps other threads about Webkinz be recognized, and not just clog up the General Discussion with eStore threads. It's great to talk about the eStore, but, I think it's taking over General Discussion.
