    Yeah, thanks for the *nice n’ long, heheh!* post. My parents and I appreciate Ganz trying to make Webkinz/Webkinz Newz a safe, fun environment for people of all ages. Oh, and just a quick question for Ganz/WKN staff… Can I say the name of my Pinterest account? It has Webkinz related things on there, and I’m following you guys @Webkinz, and everything! Thanks! ~PrettyPika

    Hmm…Well I’ve known all of these for years. Thanks for keeping us up-to-date! Oh…Wait…The long posts thing…That’s odd, because I make long posts, and I see OTHERS do long posts too, and they never get in trouble…Hmm!

    OH.MY.GOSH…I knew ALL of these except “Asking members to trade with you via KinzPost. All trading activity should occur in the Trading Rooms”…I’ve done that so much…It’s just the Clubhouse doesn’t work for me often, especially in the day (maybe too many people there?), I am so sorry that I’ve done that Ganz, I promise it won’t happen again. -ColorColorColor
