*UPDATE* Lack of snowflakes worry Webkinz World account holders


It seems that this morning the Winter Fest snowflakes have stopped flying on all Webkinz World accounts in all time zones. Many users are wondering where they have gone.
 
All tips have been employed to coax them to show up, but in many cases (upward of 5 hours for some) the snowflakes have just not shown up.
 
Also it would seem that the site is showing significant slowdown during play with interruptions during harvesting in the garden.
 
Webkinz Winter Fest 2011 is scheduled to run for a full 9 days, from January 15th til the 23rd. This is the second official day. There have been complaints that the flakes are sparse at the Webkinz Newz site as well. We will keep you updated as this situation develops.
 
UPDATE: It appears as though the flakes have begun to fly for account holders using the Firefox Browser. Some using the Internet Explorer are having sightings of sporadic, albeit within the 6 minute increment time frame. They can show up at the 6 minute mark, 12, 18 or 24 minute marks (from the time you first log in). 
 
Usually, your pets 3xH drop cycle will coincide with the distribution of click event prizes. Your pets health, hunger and Happiness will often dip when the system kicks out a flake. Keep an eye on those levels and another eye open for the flakes.

Thanks Dixie! Hopefully you'll spare others wasted time by this posting...I spent about an hour, with four accounts open and nothing...I'm sure they'll give us a flake fest of galactikinz proportions soon!

Re: Lack of snowflakes worry Webkinz World account holders

I am sure that this will be rectified. Ganz has had a pretty good track record lately of fixing stuff as it happens. I bet by this afternoon we will see a difference

Re: Lack of snowflakes worry Webkinz World account holders

Thank you Dixiecup. I was looking for this info right now. I am sure it will get better soon - probably they are just giving people a chance to sleep! LOL.

Re: Lack of snowflakes worry Webkinz World account holders

I hope so! Thanks Dixie .

Re: Lack of snowflakes worry Webkinz World account holders

Thanks for posting, Dixiecup.

It's been frustrating for everyone who has busy daytime hours.

Re: Lack of snowflakes worry Webkinz World account holders

Good News!!! I just caught a snowflake on the Webkinz Newz Site!!!

Re: Lack of snowflakes worry Webkinz World account holders

Thank you Dixie Cup I just got on 25 minutes ago and came here to see what was up with the noflakes!
I will save my gardening for later

Re: Lack of snowflakes worry Webkinz World account holders

Yesterday the flakes were flying fine in WW, it might just be that the flakes were programmed to run slower through the night and early morning, maybe we'll see an increase shortly with it going on 9am KT....

Thanks Dixie!!! That was quick!

Asian accounts were in their afternoon, evening and did not see a flake for 6 hours, this is a glitch.

Re: Lack of snowflakes worry Webkinz World account holders

9:00 !!! Let's see what happens!

Re: Lack of snowflakes worry Webkinz World account holders

Dixiecup....you sound like a weather forecaster!! Have you ever thought of persuing a job at a news station!?

Re: Lack of snowflakes worry Webkinz World account holders

Aw I was planning on grabbing some flakes this morning. Guess I'll wait. Glad I came her first, thanks for the update. Maybe temps in webkinz world got above snowing temps last night. I'm sure there's a cold front moving in that will bring more snow. If we are luck we may even see blizzard conditions LOL

Re: Lack of snowflakes worry Webkinz World account holders

Thanks for the update, guess I'll go do something else for awhile!

Re: Lack of snowflakes worry Webkinz World account holders

I caught two snowflakes this morning.

On WW or the Newz site?

Re: Lack of snowflakes worry Webkinz World account holders

Thank you, Dixiecup! I'm so glad I checked here before logging in and wasting (even more) time staring at my room! Hopefully Ganz is responding to complaints that the flakes were too few and far between yesterday and are fixing it so there will be more when they return.

I'll go work on the Communal Challenge in the meantime.
