Nothing is foolproof, and everything has a glitch. To make sure people arent scammed there are moderators and ways to punish people if they really do scam people. But still, who would scam?? It's very isulting and there is such a thing as karma. I have been scammed once or twince in the clubhouse because i wasn't being too smart and didnt ask to go over there house and see the item. When the Clubhouse opens back up again, I'll be sure to be there, right down everyones username there, and figure out who got scammed. Then I'll deliver the newz to jcdist2000 so other people can't get scammed. WI is a user friendly sight. There are certain rules that protect lots of people.

I mentioned this in a post on another thread so I apologize for repeating myself. What I see as the most valuable asset of the WI board is the commitment that so many of the members have to the board. They hold each other accountable for the rules of behavior and fair play. This is a unique group of people bridging geography and age with the common bond of sharing the fun of this toy. I joined a couple of sites at the same time when I first started playing with my son's webkinz. This is the only site which has held my interest and I think it is due to the quality of the members.

I'm less worried about scams here because the mods take care of hat swiftly and quickly. And I like the mods HERE because Justin and Wendy know who's best for the job. They won't let just anyone become a mod. You have to be really good to qualify.

I apologize for rambling but I'm just trying to be reasonable...

This is true, too. We make it increasingly difficult to get in, and keep our members informed. Anyone new to the GE is always required to send first, and all of our members know it, so they don't get "tricked" into sending first by scammers. In addition, scammers are less likely to scam here because our Gift Exchange is so valuable. There's so much being available in the GE that many people wouldn't want to jeopardize their membership to lose access to the goods in the Gift Exchange!!
You da bomb! LOL

I like how you need 50 posts to get into the GE because some people would join and try to trade (and posibly scam!) with their first post. And while some people would try ot get 50 posts by spamming, that simply can't happen, because like I said, the mods are quick to these things.

Default Re: why?

WI uses the feedback concept as big sites such as amazon, ebay, etc. Not to mention newbies send first, which reduces scams.
