Yes we need to get rid of anything that isn't G-rated!

This is very important because there are kids on here as young as seven and anything that's not appropriate for the youngest member has no buisness being on here.

I haven't met any 7 year olds on here, but I know of some that aren't very much older, so the inappropriate ads must go!

Webkinz Insider is set up to get "Family Friendly" ads from our ad company (Google). Sometimes ads make it through that, while the Google may consider them "Family Friendly", we don't. Justin can go in and block those ads one at a time by the web address.

Unfortunately, we don't get to review the ads before they pop up here on WI. That's where we need your help. If you see an ad that you don't think belongs on WI, please notify a member of the staff. We can pass that information on to Justin so he can block it.

Thank you everyone for your help.

I agree! These ads need to be stopped, and also, I saw that there were some fighting ones.

The filter is working its best though.

Yeah, those adds are alittle creepy. And I'm not that young either. Like that bite fight one? *shivers*

I don't know how muh control WI has over that, but if possible they should do something about it. I mean, if those freak me out? Thay've got to scare some little kid stiff.

I have noticed these, and I think a good thing would also be to refresh/change the page as quick as you can, if not report them

I haven't seen any of those ads, but it's probably because I have firefox.
It's just terrible that things like that would be on here, you should report it if you see one.
I hope this problem can be solved soon. (:

I'm not that young either, and they still disturb me.
And I think that the Bite Fight ones are probably the worst of all the violent ads I've seen.
