      You already asked me this question. KinzChat Plus is monitored and restricted, but no system is 100%, so if you are concerned please stick to regular KinzChat

    Hi Webkinz Team! I have a question. If you see this comment can you plz reply back? Anyway, I was wondering about something in the KinzChat Plus Area. I’ve been playing in the Kinzchat Area ever since I started playing Webkinz. So I have a question about the KinzChat Plus Area. Ok here is my question. Is inapropiate language blocked? Because I was thinking about going in the KinzChat Area but I just don’t want to go in there if people are saying inapropiate language. So I wanted to know is inapropiate language blocked like even if you miss spell it or even if you put like dashes and underscores and periods and all stuff like that. Is inapropiate language still blocked even if people try to miss spell it or but stuff between it, it will be still blocked? Plz let me know if it’s blocked or not so then I can start playing in that Area! Thanks Webkinz Team!

      KinzChat Plus is restricted and monitored, yes. Most of the ways people would circumvent the filters is blocked, but if you are concerned, you should stick to regular KinzChat

    One of the items prohibited in the “Other” section is “Extremely long posts”. Is there a specific word or character count?
