Default Suggestion to help Ganz

I was thinking about the issues with the exclusives going on lately and that Ganz is saying that they are trying to crack down on those very few people who sell the virtual items on ebay and the like. My thought was this: We need to help Ganz stop those guys. We can do two things.

1) Never, Never, Never buy virtual item off ebay.

2) If the people who like to go to ebay would take a few minutes to check through listings and flag/report those that are selling virtual items, then ebay would probably remove them (at least they would if Ganz explicitly tells them it's against their policies). Ebay doesn't review every listing, they depend on other users to report violations, so we need to do that. I think Ganz should hire people to do the checking, but until/unless they do (I imagine it would be cheaper than hiring more CS people to deal with complaints) we have to try and help. Oh, and maybe we need to watch Craig's List, too. I don't know, I've never checked that one for webkinz.

Anyway, just my thoughts this moring while taking a shower....

Good Idea.

And in reality. Any good business would have people that monitor stuff like this if it's against their policy, and so I guess either they do or don't and don't care to.

I think it may be an issue they didn't expect... I mean, really, who would anticiapte that people would try to sell something that doesn't even really exist. So they may be on the defense versus the offense in this one. The whole virtual world is a pretty new concept and Ganz is at the front of the pack, so they are charting unknown territory at times and they make mistakes, which are to be expected. It's how they deal with THEIR mistakes and fix them that will tell whether or not they stand the test of time. I honestly hope they can fix the problems quickly and make things work for everyone and we will all still be here ten years from now laughing over all the little glitches we helped them through "back in the day"... sort of like my husband will never buy a new car, especially a new model. He'll always let someone else drive the bugs out for him, as he says... I guess we are trying to drive some of the bugs out of WW.

I have bought several stuff a while ago I didn't realize that it was against GANZ agreeemnt until recently, I stopped since it can add up to buy virtual items.

To be honest GANZ has BIGGER problems I am sure there are more EMPTY BLUE BOXES a day that are not being awarded then people selling virtual items on ebay. Virtual items also cuts into GANZ profits some people might justify paying $5.00 for virtual VS getting a new webkinz that awards us empty boxes LOL (that is probally why they are tackling it).
