Many of our members have noticed a delay in the updating of front page news articles. The staff have previously addressed this in a noticed posted to the forum here, however due to the ongoing delays in updating the front page it is important to address this officially as well.
Our intentions have never been to let updates to Webkinz World, new pet adoptions, or important information slip by our team of volunteers. However, recent issues with the editing software for our Front Page has created a barrier to those updates. Many volunteers have been unable to access the front page editor for over a year, and for others it can be difficult to work with at the best of times. We have yet to find a solution, or resolution, to these software issues and have been unsuccessful in locating the reason why it is affecting specific volunteers and not others.
Because of these technical problems, the volunteers able to access the front page editor and publish stories successfully is limited. This limitation also means that the stories will not be published right away, as our volunteers have commitments to other activities on WI and outside of WI.
This is disappointing for many, and we wanted to extend our apologies and provide a further update to the situation. It is not our intention for these stories to sit idle for so long, but the technical issues are a huge barrier for these updates to happen in a timely matter. The staff who are able to update will do so as soon as possible.
In the mean time, we strongly encourage our members to ultilize the information available in our WIki project and Forums. The WIki project is updated by dedicated volunteers, and features some of the latest and most valuable information about Webkinz World.
