Default Regarding inappropriate advertisements on Webkinz Insider

Have you seen an inappropriate ad on WI? ---

First off, you should be aware that this is NOT the WI staff's fault at all. Webkinz Insider is signed up for "Family Friendly" ads, but sometimes, not so appropriate ads slip through, and they show up on WI without the staff being able to review it.

If someone plays games such as World of Warcraft or similar games, you will see more ads about that type of game here on WI, and on some of these ads, there are scantily-clad characters.

What you do on your computer is stored in the history or in the cookies, and it "attracts" similar ads. Google ads are programmed this way on purpose, to get to their target audience.

And that is one reason why some of you see more inappropriate ads than others.
What should you do when you see one? ---

Pm a staff member! A screenshot is good, as well as possibly the date and time you saw it. This is the best way to notify Justin, who will take care of it as soon as he can. Creating a thread about the ad you saw is not the best thing to do, considering that only attracts attention to the ad.

How do you take a screenshot of the ad? ---


How do you know who to PM? ---

Here is a list of all the staff members. It also has the online/offline symbol beside their name, which is helpful when deciding who to PM. Check it out here --> WebkinzInsider.Com Webkinz Forum - Show Groups

Just putting this out there. Thanks for reading...


** Also **, you can disable all ads if you want. You can either by the Insider Insider subscription for one month for 50,000 WI Bucks or you can buy it with real money. Check out these links -->

Thanks for this! There are lots of threads in here regarding an inappropriate ad, just take a screen shot of it, tell an admin where you saw it, when you saw it and the picture you took and they will take care of it.

Lovely guide, ave! Lately I've been seeing many threads about 'inappropriate ads,' and most of the replies are similar - but now we just have a link to direct them to! Thanx for making this, repp! =]

I'd also like to add, for anyone that's wondering, if you'd like to get them removed completely - you could become a Webkinz Insider Insider, for about 50,00 WI bucks - then you have the option to turn them off. =]
