According to Kinzville Newz, the maintenance originally scheduled for last night in Webkinz World has been rescheduled for tonight, or perhaps the original message seen yesterday was referring to tonight! It appears the the eStore will be affected, as well, but they are extending the Surprise Saturday availability to make up for it. Usually when they schedule downtimes like this, significant changes are implemented. Could this be the addition of "Zumwhere"?
We are performing some important maintenance this weekend — both the Webkinz eStore and Webkinz World may be affected. The expected downtime is between 11pm EST on Friday, March 27 until 6am EST on Saturday, March 28. Actual downtime may vary - please be patient if the site is not back up immediately.
How does this affect the eStore? The Surprise Saturday line-up will be delayed, but the items will be available longer to make up for the time.
In other eStore news, have you been wondering what eStore points are? That question will be answered once we finish updating the eStore on April 1st. The update will interrupt our usual Webkinz Wednesday, but it will be extended until Thursday, and will include some additional products. We’ve got some exciting changes coming, so stay tuned to Webkinz Newz for more information.
