Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

The Site is Flashy With Many Promises, But Fails To Deliver.

In the beginning I thought this was a wonderful website for my daughter. I even joined in with her! However, once the site experienced issues where she could no longer play the problems started. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- * -------------------------------------------------------------------------- I tried contacted the site by submitting help requests; they never responded. I tried emailing them...several times; got no response. I called, got the run-around actually never speaking to a person so I had to hangup. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- * -------------------------------------------------------------------------- While trying to figure out HOW to get a hold of a human being to get help with the site which was still experiencing this problem after two weeks, I found that the site was illegally posting the TRUSTe Privacy seal on its site. I did try to contact them about it, but of course got no response, so I filed a complaint. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- * -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Bottom line, it looked wonderful, but it was a big bomb that really disapointed my daughter and me. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- * -------------------------------------------------------------------------- They should be ashamed that such a big name television company can't provide a better quality website...or at least be forced to provide children what they advertise. Where I come from that's called false marketing. Doing it to kids doesn't make it okay Discovery Channel. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- * -------------------------------------------------------------------------- If I sound a bit angry, well yes, I am. I had to listen to my little 5 year old daughter cry and cry when I told her she could no longer play her favorite games on Hub and that she couldn't "Get her ""Cutie Mark"" on her Pony." I don't like making my daughter cry, but apparently the Hub doesn't mind. So yes, I am a bit miffed and I don't mind where my venomous words strike. This won't be my last review... -------------------------------------------------------------------------- * ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Clean up your act Hub.
