I think it's important to keep it up there; especially for the new GTs who are unexperianced and need to know what to watch out for =].

Well, I am just saying that if not removed, it does need updating. There isn't that much info in there except for the warnings.

Again, if you ever have any problems with anyone, let us know right away and we'll see what we can do.

Unfortunately, with things being so rare and no real recourse within Webkinz World, there are some people out there to take advantage of good-hearted souls like ourselves.

First, some warnings......
Don't ever give out your WebkinzWorld Password - We'll never ask for it and, if someone asks you for it, let us know!

Don't ever download any programs that claim to "make you tons of Kinz Cash" or "help you find Webkinz on the Internet" - They are likely Trojan Horses that monitor your keystrokes and send them to people who will hack into your account! If you see anything like this, let us know!

Don't ever pay someone who is "selling" their Webkinz account with "$xx,000 KinzCash" in it. It's a scam, they'll take your money and then they'll change the password on you!! It sounds too good to be true because it is!!!

Don't ever participate in a "contest" where someone says that the person who sends the best gift will win something spectacular. You won't, you'll just lose the item that you sent them and never see them again

Well, that announcement expires in November of this year anyway, so it doesn't really matter.

Default Re: Removing the "Bad Traders and Scammers" Announcement?

Well, I had a nice and long reply typed up this morning, but then, of course, I lost connection to teh intrawebz and shut my laptop off without saving it (insert Homer Simpson "Doh!"). But, I'll try to cover most of what I said...

I think that the rule banning talk of clubhouse trades needs to be reconsidered, or the announcement removed.


Why?
1) The announcement could be interpreted as contradicting the rule.
2) The rule is oft-confusing (at least it was for me for the first year or so of being on WI).
3) There is talk of scammers in the clubhouse multiple times on a daily basis; this *could* be interpreted as violating the rule.

So, with that said, I'm not saying that stripping the rule completely is the only thing that would help. I am saying that one of these three things could help avoid confusion, as well as aid clarity:
1) The rule is actually stripped.
2) The rule is clarified, and either enforced to its fullest extent (outlawing the discussion of scammers) or added on to to reflect exceptions for discussing scammers.
3) The announcement is pulled.

That is my opinion, anyway.

If you look at when it is actually set to expire, it will expire this year.

While true, that is still over 6 months away. It may also end up extended as well. That's why I suggested clarification in my post a bit earlier. I'm fine with the announcement, as long as the rule is clarified to allow the discussion of scams/scammers.

Thanks Nick, that pretty much what I am trying to get across!

Default Re: Removing the "Bad Traders and Scammers" Announcement?

Not sure why this announcement needs to be removed, just a few little lines at the top of the page til you click on it. if it bothers you don't click. I think it is helpful for new members, it helped me, the trading room talk is a continous eye opener..new scams daily.
Maybe clarifying the rules would be helpful.
But I just seen a member in the chimpettes thread trying to trade their contest dress, so the clarification needs to be done in all the threads...maybe?

You have a point Galfam. However, what if people just want to read it, so they have reminders? Justin can add to it, but not remove it. I think it's useful, and would help a whole lot. We want to be safe from scammers, because people have scammed in WI during the past. Thanks for sharing your idea though!
