Important Notice: Front Page Stories and News Updates

Tags:
 
Many of our members have noticed a delay in the updating of front page news articles. The staff have previously addressed this in a noticed posted to the forum here, however due to the ongoing delays in updating the front page it is important to address this officially as well. 
 
Our intentions have never been to let updates to Webkinz World, new pet adoptions, or important information slip by our team of volunteers.  However, recent issues with the editing software for our Front Page has created a barrier to those updates.  Many volunteers have been unable to access the front page editor for over a year, and for others it can be difficult to work with at the best of times.  We have yet to find a solution, or resolution, to these software issues and have been unsuccessful in locating the reason why it is affecting specific volunteers and not others.
 
Because of these technical problems, the volunteers able to access the front page editor and publish stories successfully is limited.  This limitation also means that the stories will not be published right away, as our volunteers have commitments to other activities on WI and outside of WI.
 
This is disappointing for many, and we  wanted to extend our apologies and provide a further update to the situation. It is not our intention for these stories to sit idle for so long, but the technical issues are a huge barrier for these updates to happen in a timely matter.  The staff who are able to update will do so as soon as possible.
 
In the mean time, we strongly encourage our members to ultilize the information available in our WIki project and Forums. The WIki project is updated by dedicated volunteers, and features some of the latest and most valuable information about Webkinz World.   

WI Members Adopt New Webkinz Pets

  Over the past few months, WI members have adopted some new friends to their families. All of these pets were the first noted adoption at the time of their release. Please join us in welcoming the following new additions to our WI Family.
 
In May, Joi adopted the Cauliflower Sheep. Floret is pictured (left) with her Pet Specific Item (PSI), the Salad Dressing Fountain.  The Cauliflower Sheep's Pet Specific Food (PSF) item is Fresh Garden Salad.  The Cauliflower sheep is a deluxe eStore exclusive pet, and available at the Ganz eStore for 10,000 estore points (to deluxe members only).
 
BinkyBohBoh adopted the rare Timeless Wolf as part of the 10 day rare pet event during Webkinz 10 year Annivesary.  AlphaWolfMeister is seen here with their PSI, the Timeless Touring Car.  The Timeless Wolf's PSF is the Celestial Stroganoff.  This pet is no longer available for purchase, as it was a limited time event. 
 
Enscats adopted the African Black Rhino this month. Milo is pictured here with his PSI, the Slippery Water Slide.  The African Black Rhino's PSF is the Sunny Smoothie.  This pet is new this month, and available through the Ganz eStore or your local Webkinz retailer.
