Thank you everybody! Funsilly and Momwhoplays I agree with the need to keep the generation gap open and that it is wonderful to have friends of all ages. ( It opens up your perspective on the world and I have to say that I have met so many wonderful people of all ages that have touched my heart her on WI also) Junomouse, I think your thoughts are very important. Small gifts and messages of encouragement and friendhsip are great but there is a fine line that parents need to monitor. Smurfette, I appreciate your view and it is true that somebody can always find ways to seek what they want. However, age seperating WI would only make their targets easier.
I am so happy to see others commenting as I know that these people will keep an eye out and watch out for our most innocent. Thank you for keeping WI safe for children and a big thank you for the staff that goes above and beyond in protecting not just the children but everybody here.
Well said, Lauraanne. I was thinking last night about your thread. To quote one of my most favorite characters, (guess who? you could guess by my avvie)
Elastic girl (Mrs. Incredible),"Our secret identy is our greatest asset." My daughter once repeated this over & over & asked what does this mean? So this opened up a door of opportunity. We all have cool user names, but we must keep our personal information secret, for our own saftey. As for the idea of a kid's section for mod's to review, w/ 100,000 members, as great as the mods are, they just couldn't monitor it all. So it is really up to us as members, & most of us are outstanding honest members, to flag down a mod when there's an inaappropriate post.

I love that people of all ages can chat here. I agree that splitting the kids off to their own thing makes them more vulnerable to posers. Besides, I love to hear what they have to say. And I always learn something new from the youth.
I like that adults mix with the kids and can help keep an eye out for anything inappropriate.
This has actually always been a steadfast commitment of Justin and Wendy.
WI was founded for the purpose of bringing together ALL fans of Webkinz. Having separate areas would, in Justin's own words, undermine the whole reason WI was created. He believes what makes WI unique is the ability of the forum to facilitate discussion among Webkinz fans of all ages.
As for internet safety, yes its true anyone can pretend to be a certain age, but thats where the responsibility of parents come in.
As has been stated, if anyone asks you for personal information...whether its your age, or email address or instant messenger user name, or city you live in, or mascot of your school, or your grade...ANYTHING...let a mod know. Regardless if its an innocent request, that person needs to know its not allowed.
