Sorry to say, but I disagree with this. Why shuold Webkinz get RAINBOW names while Gifted's and Guru's would still have green and navy? Maybe Trainees could get...say, gray names, but it wouldn't be fair for Webkinz to have more special titles. If Webkinz want to become trainees, it doesn't take long. You can write 50 helpful posts in a short time! Sorry if this sounds rude, I'm not trying to be mean. I just honestly think it wouldn't be fair for Webkinz to 'purchase' username colors, especially rainbow-colored ones just ecause they're 'tired of black'. Trainees are often moved up to GIfteds within 2 months, so they usually wouldn't have long to wait for the navy-color.
I'm liking ImTara's idea though...WWIDs aren't as obvious and maybe different colored-ones could be bought with, say, 10,000 WI$. That way new members would still have to work to make good posts to earn enough bucks (thuogh many already have this amount ormultiples of it so it's not too difficult to achieve) before buying the privelige, and respected Webkinz could get it right away.
I agree with this post.
I couldn't have said it better myself
I was browsing the forums when an idea struck my mind—what if we could have rainbow usernames? Many Webkinz and Gift Trainees like me get sick of being black, and some members don't want to make 50 trades just to get an entertaining username. We could pay at least 1,000 WI bucks to get a multicolored username or even one with letters that dance. So, here's what my name and one of my WI friends' name would look like with both features. Rainbow: cutiebug343 Dancing: (We'd have to change the color of these so Webkinz, Gift Trainees, etc. wouldn't get confused with mods, though)
Even if we couldn't have these, Gift Trainees should still receive a colored username for all the hard work they had to do to become a GT. Maybe their usernames could be silver! Silver is still a wonderful color, but we wouldn't stand out as much since the hue is only one step above black. In addition, ImTara55 suggested that we pay WI bucks for our WW IDs to be colored if Gift Trainees can't have silver usernames. So, what do you think? or ?
Great idea! I think it would be fair for GT's and Webkinz to have usernames that aren't just in black,but of course,just like you said,you'd have to use your WI bucks,and maybe,1000 can automatically be removed from your account every month are so,as long as you have the rainbow username. Of course,you can always decide to let your username to go back to black.
It would be unfair, and I don't like the idea itself. Some Dancing Letters or Rainbow Text Usernames would be hard to read, it could cause someone to go into a seizure, or it coud make someone get eye damage! Also, Gift Gurus, Gifted, Gift Coaches, Mods, and Admins have worked much harder than us to get where they are now! Either way, it doesn't matter how our usernames look!

I see your point, and I would love it to happen, as I do want a colored username, but everyone else is right. It would be unfair to people who are gifted, a guru, or a coach/staff member, who work hard to earn that name. Many of them might even consider the rainbow names cooler than the single color they have, even though the webkinz haven't earned anything.

That's true...but obviously we (the webkinz) haven't reached our full potential, if we can't earn those ranks, so I still think it would be unfair...
I 100% agree with you, Abby. We worked hard and earned our blue names, as did GC, GGs, Mods and Admins. Granted Webkinz do work hard, but they can still improve and become gifted.
In my opinion, it's pretty pointless for GT's to have different colored names, because the whole point of being a GT is to train to become Gifted, and with that comes a blue user name.
