Customizable Room Naming Returns to Webkinz World! *UPDATE*
According to Webkinz Newz, tomorrow's maintenance will bring a change which Webkinz World members have long been asking for. This is the freedom to name your rooms as you see fit.
Originally in the early days of Webkinz World, players were free to name the rooms in their Webkinz house anything they liked. However there were abuses, and some players gave their rooms inappropriate names. To prevent this abuse, in September 2008 Ganz changed the room-naming feature to a list of approved names only. Our members have long been asking for more freedom in room-naming, including our famous "Name Our Rooms Compromise" thread in the Ideas for Ganz section of our forum.
Starting tomorrow, our members will once again be able to name their rooms according to their needs. This feature will be found as before, in the House Map in the top left corner when looking at your Webkinz room. There will be a prompt to select the room to be renamed, and a text window will open where you can type the room name of your choice. This name can be changed whenever you wish.
Give your imagination a free rein, but please keep it appropriate. Thank you Ganz for listening!
UPDATE: The new room-naming feature is now working well. If it won't work for you, clear your browser's cache. If you don't know how to do that, here is a link to a set of instructions that will tell you how to clear your cache: WikiHow.
