Webkinz Players Frustrated by Webkinz Newz Click-to-Win Events


webkinz cheatsFor the past week or so, here on Webkinz Insider we have been flooded with complaints regarding the recent Webkinz News click-to-win events. 
 
Instead of seeing a floating path, most players are seeing a tiny box.  Depending on what browser they are using, the box may be empty or it may have a small "x" or "?" inside.  This little box is very difficult to find and nearly impossible to catch.  
 
We have not yet been able to determine what the systems of the players experiencing the glitch (or those not experiencing the glitch) have in common.  We are tracking this glitch in the Glitch Report section of our forum.  Hopefully the programmers at Ganz will be able to sort things out soon.

It bugs me!
I do them and it doesn't work!
AH FIX IT GANZ!!!

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by Webkinz Newz Click-to-Win Events

works for me nowadays. and the fred rover blazer was a flying coat.

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by Webkinz Newz Click-to-Win Events

I have seen the same thing but didn't have a problem catching it and it sent me to the page to enter my information.

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by Webkinz Newz Click-to-Win Events

Today I can see the floating thing the first time - a victorian garden path. the first time since it started i see the picture. i think they fixed it?

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by Webkinz Newz Click-to-Win Events

I have been getting a very small blue box with a question mark in it...

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by Webkinz Newz Click-to-Win Events

I get the flying box with an x but it is super easy to catch and i get it everyday it is on

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by Webkinz Newz Click-to-Win Events

For the Blazer (MAC/Firefox/Safari,) all pop-ups and cookies on) I never saw any Blazers and don't know about the Paths. I saw tiny blank boxes one time, but do not know if it has been on other times and I see nothing.

To be more specific, MAC Snow Leopard, Firefox 3.6.17, Safari 5.0.5 always automatically updated. (BTW I tried FF4 and it was causing multiple problems so went back to 3.) I saw the Vans and the Bloomin' with no problem, but not the Paths and now no Blazer at all.

I called Webkinz Support and got the standard answer: We've tested it and they are working fine and we haven't had any other complaints.

If everyone having problems (or not) could document their browsers, computers and systems and please call and report. 1-866-932-5469

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by Webkinz Newz Click-to-Win Events

i am using internet explorer with no problems (blazer and path)

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by Webkinz Newz Click-to-Win Events

Yesterday, with the jackets, I had red x's. Today, for the paths, I had actual paths. I just can't seem to keep up with what Ganz does and have taken to clicking on anything that moves, just in case it might be something good!LOL
The paths also seemed slower, with 5-6 page changes between. Maybe it's because I was doing a PKN, too? Sometimes, though, I can only see the paths when doing a PKN...sigh.

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by Webkinz Newz Click-to-Win Events

All I see is the little box which is very hard to see. I've been on for over 2 hours and have only seen it once. Very frustrating. I'm on Mozilla Firefox. Going to try Internet Explorer to see if there is a difference. Good Luck to All.

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by Webkinz Newz Click-to-Win Events

Good Morning, I am Sorry everyone is having this problem! I just finished finding all of the Paths for my accounts and like 2WebbiesMomz it was slower to begin with, although by the time I had completed All of My Accounts with the Paths, (not Peek-a-Newz), the Paths were coming More Frequently! Of Course, I No Longer Needed Them! lol I Did take a Screen Shot, (as if you didn't know what they looked like )! Oops, sorry, I forgot to say I am on FF.
Good Luck!
Have a Wonderful & Blessed Day!
Hugs!

I use ie and haven't had any problems with any of the events.

After switching to IE I saw the boxes again but at least these had a red x in them (much easier to see).

This really doesn't seem to have any rhyme or reason to it. On other days I could see the path with no problems on FF as well as the green jackets.

For those having problems seeing and/or finding them it appears easiest for me on Kinzapedia Hamsters. Just keep refreshing and the little square is easier to see plus there is much less to click on accidentally. Hopefully this will all be fixed for everyone soon.

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by Webkinz Newz Click-to-Win Events

Yeah, I've been getting those transparent floaters too. No real problem getting the stuff though. I find I just have to really concentrate on the screen so I don't miss the thing flying around and then wait 'til the box is in a white space clear of any other graphics on the page (so I don't wind-up hitting the wrong thing). The most irritating thing about it is that I don't know what the heck it is I'm clicking on until I get to the "Sign on to claim your prize" window.

[D'ya think they could make up a smilie icon for "Irritated"?]

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by Webkinz Newz Click-to-Win Events

Oooh, VERY difficult. I'll give it a try anyways.

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by Webkinz Newz Click-to-Win Events

I wish Ganz would fix this already.
It's annoying when Ganz claims to fix something but, hasn't.

I been getting this glitch off and on.
Sometimes I am lucky to get the path and other times I get a box.

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by Webkinz Newz Click-to-Win Events

I didn't even see the blazer even float yesterday so i didn't know this issue

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by Webkinz Newz Click-to-Win Events

Yesterday, using Firefox 3.6.17, never saw the blazer, which is unusual as we always use Firefox for the click to wins, and never have a problem. I can't upgrade FF, as certain programs we use are not currently compatible with the latest version.

Switched to IE 8 and finally saw the box with the red x. If you scroll to the bottom of the page the box follows you, and its easier to click when there is more white space. Even though it was a red x it worked. Continung to work on our accounts with IE, we started to see some jackets floating, but then it switched back to the red x again after a coupe of more refresh hits. And then later it switched back to the jacket. Confusing at best, but with patience we were able to make it work. We are sorry for those who were not able to get the jacket.

Thank to WI we are always able to make sure its not just our computer. Otherwise, we would probably completely walk away from Webkinz. Its too frustrating without a suppurt network like we have here.

Update: Today, the paths are only working on IE, and its the box with red x. They are not floating on Firefox.

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by Webkinz Newz Click-to-Win Events

I was wondering if some sort of parental control blocking was activated on some of the computers which might not recognize some of the floating items as safe. I read through posts though, and it seemed less likely based on reports.

I've been ok so far on IE and Firefox. I'll check on a parental blocked computer to see if there are issues there.

Re: Webkinz Players Frustrated by Webkinz Newz Click-to-Win Events

I haven't seen any of the boxes, but I am on a different computer at the time and the paths are flying like crazy!
