Webkinz Newz Articles Not Updating for Most Players *UPDATE*


webkinz cheatsIf you have been wondering why the articles on the Webkinz Newz haven't updated in the past two days, you're not alone.  Based on reports we are getting from our members, it appears that there is a glitch affecting that site right now.  Some members are getting updated articles, including clues for Persephone's current contest, and others haven't had a new article since the Bookshelf Makeover on the 16th.
 
At this point, we are not certain why some computers are affected and others aren't, but we have discovered a guaranteed way to fix it.  If you have a Webkinz Newz account, log on to it.  The moment you do, all of the articles will be updated.  If you don't have a Webkinz Newz account, you can continue to check on Webkinz Insider for all of the latest news.
 
In a related note, those players who are not seeing the new articles are continuing to see floating tour vans.  However, just like over the weekend, players clicking on the vans are getting a message that the event has expired.

And, for those of you hunting for Spree Bonus Rolls today, keep an eye out for a blank ad with a tiny red "x" in the top-left corner.  Those are the advertisements that are giving out the free rolls.
 
UPDATE (12:40pm):  Based on member reports, it appears the glitch has been fixed!

Re: Webkinz Newz Articles Not Updating for Most Players

Thanks for this report! I'm still seeing the van and I haven't noticed if I can't see new articles (since I don't read them). I'm also having a VERY difficult time finding Hailley. I used to find her in less than 10 minutes. Now it's taking at least 30. Hope this gets resolved soon.

Re: Webkinz Newz Articles Not Updating for Most Players

Oh my gosh I thought it was just me! I noticed my front page hasn't changed and wondered what in the world is going on. Whatever, just another glitch.

Re: Webkinz Newz Articles Not Updating for Most Players

Yah second postie! I hope Ganz fixes this soon; I want to click on that Van!
What is the bookshelf makeover??

Re: Webkinz Newz Articles Not Updating for Most Players

My 4 accounts are not seeing the up dates! If you go to contests and fun on the front page of WKN and click "more" you will see the new up dates!

Re: Webkinz Newz Articles Not Updating for Most Players

hmm i've had that happen. I was in mozilla firefox and it wasn't working but then i switched to internet explorer and it worked. also when i logged in to my WKN account (on Mozilla Firefox) it updated too and i could see all the articles. it's really weird...

Re: Webkinz Newz Articles Not Updating for Most Players

I am now able to see the Spree advertisement, so it might be visible now.

Strange about the non-updating.

Re: Webkinz Newz Articles Not Updating for Most Players

I found if you go to preferences you can delete your webkinz cookies, the new front page will then come up.

Re: Webkinz Newz Articles Not Updating for Most Players

I have all the old ads too. Thought they were starting to get a little lax! lol... hope it's fixed soon. don't think it's anything about our computers as much as their servers.

Re: Webkinz Newz Articles Not Updating for Most Players

For my Firefox, the 'broken image' symbol that you need to click to find the Spree ad is a small box with a 'ripped' piece of paper symbol.

I've found that iif you log into a webkinz newz account, it helps with a lot of events, so it's worthwhile getting one (plus if the webkinz site is down you can still earn W by playing in the newz arcade.)

Re: Webkinz Newz Articles Not Updating for Most Players

Update: I still have the old ads but the SPREE ad is working just fine for me. All the graphics appear and did 2 accts in less than 1 minute. Using Firefox...

Re: Webkinz Newz Articles Not Updating for Most Players

I cleared my cache twice,then then everything updated & i was able to see the Spree ads.

The same thing happened to me, but when I came back to the site after allowing certain cookies on my computer I was able to see the new Newz posts. I don't know whether this might help or not...

Re: Webkinz Newz Articles Not Updating for Most Players

It's now fixed.

Re: Webkinz Newz Articles Not Updating for Most Players *UPDATE*

I don't think it has to do with the entire computer though this is the weird thing...

If I go on with Internet Explorer the last thing I see is about the van that was even before the bookshelf , the van still floats by but of course says Promotion is over.

But when I go on with FF it gives me more info, it gave me the last announcement for the 17th.

I just went to WKN with IE to see and it seems to be working now, I can now see Create a Top-Notch Manic Magic Show as the last article...

Re: Webkinz Newz Articles Not Updating for Most Players *UPDATE*

No, they said they are aware and they are working on it
That was the latest tweet about 10 minutes ago from them.

Re: Webkinz Newz Articles Not Updating for Most Players *UPDATE*

Great news!!

I will check to see if mine is fixed!

Re: Webkinz Newz Articles Not Updating for Most Players *UPDATE*

Mine appears to be fixed. I am usually one of the last ones. But now that that is fixed I am getting overlapping Commercials from Rice Krispies in my WW accounts

I am able to do the floating events without being logged in.

Re: Webkinz Newz Articles Not Updating for Most Players *UPDATE*

Thanks for the info although I don't usually read the news at Ganz World. I usually care more for the arcade there.

Re: Webkinz Newz Articles Not Updating for Most Players *UPDATE*

HOLY GUACAMOLIE!! I MISSED A TON OF NESS AND SUCH!!!
