A member can get banned when the staff feels it is an appropriate punishment for breaking the rules.
In the FAQ and rules for the forum this should be explained farther in detail. Here's the link.

The FAQ and rules are located just under the WI banner on the menu bar for future references.

Hello Everyone,

I wanted to take a moment to respond to everyone.

I understand that long-time users of this site already know the rules (or should anyhow), but for newer people, this site can be a bit intimidating. There is a ton of information here, and, at first, trying to figure out your way around can be a bit challenging.

It would seem to make sense that the links that go to the rules of the site would be highly visible and point to the same set of rules no matter where the link originates. It would provide continuity (I think that's the right word) and make things a bit less confusing to newer users - rather than if they started finding different information and rules depending on the link they clicked.

Imagine the confusion when someone remembers reading about a specific thing, then goes back to try and find that information again, and the link they click (depending on where they are) brings them to something totally different...

Anyone else have any thoughts on this?
Thank you for adding a very thoughtful comment - I agree!

Hello Megally,

Here are the Wiki Forum Rules which state very specifically what is unacceptable on WI.

Webkinz Insider Forum Rules - Webkinz Insider Wiki

I think they are very well written and clear for members.

You can read through the rules here and here and here.

Essentially though...

Things deemed to be totally unacceptable:

* Posting Personal Information (last name, age, city, school, phone number, etc)
* Posting Personal Pictures (or pictures of friends, family, etc, anyone who is not a celebrity)
* Sharing e-mail addresses or Wii Friend codes.
* Attempting to discuss trades outside of the Gift Exchange area.
* Pornographic material
* Racism
* Overt personal abuse or threats to other posters or staff
* Swearing
* Harassment of other users or posting anything which would invade their privacy
* Spam (including Chain Letters)
* Commercial advertising
* Registering and using duplicate accounts after being banned or for any reason.
* Creating fake news or doctoring of images.
* All other breaches of the basic Forum Terms & Conditions in place at your time of registration or at any time during your membership of WI.


Hope this helps.

Hello Queen of Sheba,

To quote

"For those of you who may not know, a "wiki" is a special kind of on-line database. It's sort of like an encyclopedia where regular people, even those with no programming knowledge, can contribute information. But, unlike that dusty old encyclopedia sitting on a library shelf that still says George Bush, Sr., is president, a wiki can be kept up to date, moment by moment. "

You may find more info on the WIKI here;
