Webkinz Insider Members Figure Out Party Time Problem


webkinz cheatsSince the Webkinz Party feature was introduced last Wednesday, many of the members here on Webkinz Insider have been working together to figure out exactly how it works.  This weekend they sorted out one very important detail regarding the timing of parties.
 
There have been widespread reports of problems getting accounts set to the Asian and/or European Zone to get to parties on the American Zone, and vice versa.  Most players had assumed that the party times were going to default to Eastern Time.  However, it appears that all parties are actually happening in "true KinzTime".  This means that while it is possible for accounts set to different zones to attend the party, they aren't able to attend the party with their friends all together.
 
Click "Read More" below for a more detailed explanation.
For example, say I have an American account.  I schedule a party at 4pm KinzTime on Monday afternoon.  I invite friends with accounts on American, European, and Asian Zones to come to the party, and they all accept.
 
  • American accounts will have to log on at 4pm Eastern Time to get to the party.
  • European accounts had to log on several hours earlier, at 11am Eastern Time, to get to the party.
  • Asian accounts had to log on the day before, at 2am Eastern Time to get to the party.
 
So, everyone who was invited to the party will still get to go, but they won't be able to all party together.  This is especially frustrating for parties with games that require at least three players.  
 
There are also reports of people finding "uninvited guests" in their party room.  It appears that there is some "overlap" from the different zones causing different parties to get mixed together (since each party actually happens three times, once in each zone).  It is possible to interact with the other party-goers, but not possible to play party games with them.
 
Making things even more complicated is the fact that it is not possible to know what time zone your friends' accounts are set to just by looking at them in Webkinz World.  You'll have to meet up either in the Clubhouse or outside of Webkinz World to exchange that information.
 
At this point it is not clear if this is the way Ganz intended to have this feature work, or if this is a glitch that will need to be fixed.  We will keep an eye on things and let you know as soon as more information is revealed.
 

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Figure Out Party Time Problem

i really want to go to a party or have a party i set a party and stuff but i was not home so yeah

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Figure Out Party Time Problem

That's really confusing. I hope it's a glitch. Thanks for figuring it out members!

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Figure Out Party Time Problem

**paws crossed it is a glitch, I won't be able to bring euro or asian accoutns to parties unless they change it so the times match the invitation...

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Figure Out Party Time Problem

Wow, that's sad.... I hope Ganz can figure this out so friends can all party together! 4th post.. lol Good luck, all you party animals!!! ~forever :pgn:

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Figure Out Party Time Problem

Thank you for this information. I will not be wasting my invites right now unless they are a NA account. Hopefully they can get this worked out. Very helpful, thank you!

I keep having an "Unidentified" guest when it comes to the games. It usually locks the game up for everyone.

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Figure Out Party Time Problem

huh ?? sounds complicated ...

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Figure Out Party Time Problem

Not sure about this because I threw a party yesterday with my Asian account and was all ready for some fun at the right time on Asian account but no party happened. Today the party did happen for my American accounts but my poor Asian account was left out again. Not success with the Asian account so far, have another party set for Sunday Asian time but we'll see what happens. Good luck everyone!

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Figure Out Party Time Problem

Hopefully it is another Glitches R'Us. I am dying to have a party, but I am waiting.

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Figure Out Party Time Problem

Now that is very confusing...

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Figure Out Party Time Problem

Based on what is written above, are the 2 am in Asia and the 4 pm NA the same time... as Asia is 14 hours ahead of us? If so, why wouldn't the webbies be able to party together?

A second question, I has thought all was happening along EST as well... I scheduled a party FROM my Asian account, with all NA invites for 10:30 pm this evening. Does that mean it actually took place at 8:30 am (which would've been 10:30 pm, Monday, May 17 in Asia) this morning and I've missed it?

Thanks so much for your help.

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Figure Out Party Time Problem

Jenn,

They can't party together because they're not on the same KinzTime. A 4pm party on the American Zone happened 14 hours earlier on the Asian Zone. It's kind of like buying rare items at the Curio Shop.

And, yes, it sounds like you missed your Asian party, but if you have any American or European accounts invited, they'll still be able to go. They just won't be able to go together.

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Figure Out Party Time Problem

Hi Jenn,

I did the same thing and my NA accounts were able to party this morning but not my Asian account. Have fun at your party. I did go during my Asian time and still no party for that account.

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Figure Out Party Time Problem

Thank you FIA! Me and a friend were just trying to figure this out. She has a Euro acct. but I was invited on my American acct. Thank you for clearing this up.

Thanks, FIA and Lovemydogsx3 for taking the time to answer... I think I get it now... the party takes place at the KinzTime and day it's listed, no matter what zone your account is in... so while I've missed on my Asian account when it was 10:30 pm May 17 there, on my NA accounts that received invites, I'll still be able to party this evening, when it hits the 10:30 pm hour.

I'll second PeaceOut's shout out! Thanks for taking the time to explain in a way that was easy to understand

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Figure Out Party Time Problem

My thought is that Ganz figured your kid would be inviting other kids from school to the party..people they new in the same time zone. I don't think they thought about the fact that families and friends use WW as a way to stay connected with each other and enjoy games together when they are no longer in the same town. I don't think they even considered this issue as being a problem and now they will have to do some major rewriting of the program to fix this...or fix the games where they can be played by one person only. It boggles my mind how they will fix the time zone issue so pets can party together. They probably just are not aware of how many friends meet on WI and want to do parties..we are all from different locations and zones. Its amazing to me that you guys figured this out in the first place. Perhaps you need to pursue getting a job at Ganz in the WW department LOL.

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Figure Out Party Time Problem

Way to go members! You all are awesome.
I hope you can help get results for the Ganz techs to get something fixed on this.

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Figure Out Party Time Problem

Thanks for explaining this! I've been invited to several parties, and they say xx Kinztime and I've wondered what time that really is. Now I know it's the same for all of us in America. thanks so much!

Re: Webkinz Insider Members Figure Out Party Time Problem

Sorry but these parties are FRUSTRATING! We had one set yesterday for 7:30 KT and we showed up to our rooms and absolutely nothing happened. SO we thought, okay well maybe they know we are pacific time, so we showed up at OUR 7:30 and nothing happened. Ugh! I am just frustrated and it's sad knowing that people are able to go to parties, but for some reason, not us.

Okay sorry for my vent

Well after days of not being able to attend a party because I got the blue screen today I FINALLY was able to attend to parties I was invited to, But I was the only person at both parties so out of 4 games I was only able to play 2 because no one else was there. Although I was really happy to finally be able to go to a party and to get a loot bag in would of been alotmore fun is I was not the only one there waiting 5 mintues at a time to play the games the didn't need atleast 3 people.
