Webkinz Players Frustrated by 2010's Countdown to Christmas *UPDATED*


webkinz cheatsAll across the forum this morning we have been receiving complaints about this year's Countdown to Christmas event.  Many players have been camping out in the Clubhouse since early this morning without being able to find Ms. Birdy.  Although WI members have discovered that Ms. Birdy appears in certain zone colors at certain times, she is currently skipping a large number of rooms in each "round" making her very difficult to spot.  Several WI members have contacted Ganz to see if there is a programming issue, but so far the Reps are indicating that everything is working correctly.
 
webkinz cheatsFor those of you who have not had any luck finding Ms. Birdy this morning, please note that, unlike the other Clubhouse Clicker events, this event does NOT have a Grand Prize.  The only reward for collecting all twelve prizes is a MyPage bage.  So, if you don't care about the MyPage badge, and you're not interested in getting the Icicle Icing Cupcake, you can skip Tuesday.  As the prizes for each day are discovered, we will bring that news to you.
 
Here on Webkinz Insider we will continue to track Ms. Birdy all of the way up to Christmas, so that those of you who want to try to find her will have the latest information.  If you're looking for Ms. Birdy, check out the Official Tracking Thread, HERE.
 
OFFICIAL UPDATE: We expressed your concerns directly to Ganz and can now report that, as of 3:45 PM, Ganz has identified and fixed the bug. The fix has been confirmed to be live in Webkinz World.

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by 2010's Countdown to Christmas

I usually don't complain...I Like to defend Ganz..BUT..you'd think they'd have learned from clickable characters of holidays past....

This should be so easy...She should just ALWAYS be in a room-maybe switch her up every hour, but she should be EASY. Some kids (like MINE) only get a little bit of computer time a day...I'm really h oping they switch this up...sooner, rather than later-they usually do eventually listen to us-but I don't understand why they can't get it straight after all these past issues...

but for now...Yup...it's bologna

so much for their "get outside" philosophy....no kids are going to want to miss getting their 12 items...not smart Ganz...

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by 2010's Countdown to Christmas

the REPS i have found always tell you what you want to hear just to get you off their backs
I DID NOT do the halloween hunt and i am NOT doing the 12 days of christmas hunt and i know a few more that aren't going to bother. It's LOUSY how Ganz makes things so difficult for kids now. We are just fed up with it. The prizes are lousy to begin with

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by 2010's Countdown to Christmas

That isn't fair of Ganz, I think they should make it easier. Me and my twin are having the most hardest time, I mostly don't want the badge but the items..Oh well I guess I can trade for them

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by 2010's Countdown to Christmas

The friendly male rep I spoke to this morning said they have been getting a lot of calls from people who are waiting 30 minute or an hour and not finding Ms. Birdy and that it has been referred to the technical department. Has the technical department said that there is not a problem? that Ms. Birdy should be so hard to find? The rep said that it was supposed to be fairly easy like last year (and I did have an easy time finding Ms. Birdy last year). I wish Ganz would get its story straight so I know whether to just not bother with the search at all or whether it will get better and I should look now and then to try and find her.

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by 2010's Countdown to Christmas

I'm glad there is no grand prize because there is no way I will be able to find her each day if it remains like this. There are too many other things to do in WW and the real world to spend hours sitting and waiting with nothing to show for it.

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by 2010's Countdown to Christmas

Thank you for posting this! I hope Ganz changes it; would be nice to have 1-2 rooms to check instead of random everywhere; this has been a frustrating exercise during the busy Christmas season. I don't have time for searching all day for a virtual cupcake. On top if it, you have to be in the room BEFORE she appears or you don't get to see her. What about the thousands of users who don't have the benefit of Insider to tell us the best times, zones and rooms? It's like the proverbial needle in a haystack. ARRRGGGHHH!

Our family has 4 accts, been looking since last night and have found Ms. Birday and a cupcake on ONE account only. And that's the way it will be because I'm going out Christmas shopping and then have lots of baking to do. Ganz, please make it easier!!

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by 2010's Countdown to Christmas

i'm skipping today... who cares for a cupcake! I have enough retirement cupcakes i'm saving up in my dock! . I also don't care for MyPage as a whole exept for counting my webbies for me.
last year i don't think there was a grand prize ethier for the christmas event.

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by 2010's Countdown to Christmas

Thank you for the information. I've been sitting in front of two computers, have two different carriers (safari and chrome) have cleared my cache, have deleted history and have not found one cupcake although I have been in the proper zone at the proper time. I am very frustrated, just as you said. I thought that Miss Birdie appeared in most rooms at the right time last year. This is not fun anymore.

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by 2010's Countdown to Christmas

i would love to get all of them for my grand kids but this is not working out for me this time around i have been in the clubhouse all morn...for most part with 3 different accounts in different colors and different rooms and nothing it is sad that they don't think this is a kids account and they can only be on for a short time as they have homework and other things they have to do it is a sham that they can't just come in and get it for the day in a half of hour and be able to find her it is so sad that it seems webkinz is more about money then the kids...so sad what a christmas gift this is...my garand kids are getting tired trying to find things on webkinz because there is all ways something that don't work...so sad because I like it but you can't keep the kids happy if they can't find something because they don't have all day to do it...

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by 2010's Countdown to Christmas

they missed light blue santa room 11:36

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by 2010's Countdown to Christmas

Thank you for the Home page update FIA!

I hope Ganz gets this fixed soon.

I think Ms Birdy should be Santakinz helper for the month of December. !2 Gifts and everyday you visit the SantaKinz room, you get the next gift.

Ganz has us signing in every day and we have a chance of collecting our gits

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by 2010's Countdown to Christmas

Thanks for the info. Glad I'm not the only one having this problem. I wouldn't care but I do want the badge so that is why I'm going through the trouble.

We should get some kind of compensation for wasting an an entire half a day so far. At least for me.

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by 2010's Countdown to Christmas

On the first day of Christmas Ms.Birdy gave to me..1 invisible cupcake, a jar of disappointment, and a blue screen..
I wish Ganz would do something...This is just so upsetting

cupcake - your new rhyme would be cute if it wasn't so sadly true (it is cute and clever - I just wish it wasn't true).

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by 2010's Countdown to Christmas

It took me awhile but after a few hours of waiting...she finally arrived and I got my cupcake...

Yep, agreed. I was looking forward to this event since last year because I enjoyed it a lot last year.
