Ganz Removes W Tales Stories from Kinzville Times

Tags:

webkinz cheatsMany of you have noticed that Ganz has made some changes to the Kinzville Times, Webkinz World's in-game newspaper.  One of those changes was to remove nearly all of the W Tales stories that players used to be able to read for free.  Some of these stories are still contained in books that can be purchased in the wShop, or selected after entering a bookmark code, but most of them are no longer available in Webkinz World.
 
For those of you who hadn't had a chance to read these stories, we've got some fantastic news.  Webkinz Insider has a "virtual library" containing all of the Webkinz World stories.  Just click HERE to visit the Webkinz Insider WIki to read all about Arte, Plumpy, Ms. Birdy, and the other Webkinz World characters and their fantastic adventures.
 
For more information about the Webkinz Insider WIki, including how to become a contributor, please visit the WIki discussion area of our forum, located HERE.

Re: Ganz Removes W Tales Stories from Kinzville Times

WOW, my first first post!

All I can say is yet again, because of Webkinz Insider, we can still enjoy all these stories, without having to pay for them! My DD loves these stories, I remember the first time she started reading them when we joined in 07, she was just starting to read, and we read them together. Wonderful memories.

Thanks again Webkinz Insider,
You are the BEST!

Re: Ganz Removes W Tales Stories from Kinzville Times

Thanks so much, I know my daughter really enjoys reading those. WI, you are such a great resource for all of us and we REALLY APPRECIATE YOU!

Not to worry though, those previously free stories will probably show up in the e-store so we can buy them!!!

Re: Ganz Removes W Tales Stories from Kinzville Times

Well thank goodness for WI is all I can say!!! After the whole Family Deluxe fiasco, I cannot believe they are removing even MORE of the free features. Including stories with several parts that many kids might have been in the middle of!!! How inconsiderate. I am so happy this community is here to pick up the slack when Ganz makes hasty or strange decisions that might otherwise leave people out in the cold.

Re: Ganz Removes W Tales Stories from Kinzville Times

How wonderful of to do this for all of us. You have come to our rescue so many times and continually I'm blown away with each new revelation of this great organization.

It's unthinkable that Ganz is taking away an important part of our children's "learning" on their site, but, who knows we might see some new story books in the estore so that we have to pay for them. That would fit in with the way Ganz is handling things.

Re: Ganz Removes W Tales Stories from Kinzville Times

i wish i could say im surprised. but its typical for them to be so sneaky and rude with their choices............... the one fun and relaxing thing i liked to do now is taken away. i looked forward to the new chapters each week. it made my webbies come alive for me. i cant imagine how the little ones will feel about this.

i know that these will show up in the estore................. its not good enough for free, but its good enough for money. nothing surprises me with what they do anymore and im getting so very, very alienated and resentlful and sad with all the lack of manners shown by ganz with ww.

i want to VERY VERY MUCH THANK wi for putting the stories up here for us to still enjoy. that was very considerate of you all. ganz can take some lessons from wi...................

Re: Ganz Removes W Tales Stories from Kinzville Times

Thanks WI!!!!

I totally agree that this is really a bad decision. I sent them an email from ww world and told them my displeasure and encouraged them to bring them back or to open a ww library. I also stated for all of ww not deluxe or e-store.

Re: Ganz Removes W Tales Stories from Kinzville Times

Can I rant?

Well, first off thank you Webkinz Insider for posting up the stories for everyone who will still want to read them, you are a lifesaver.

I am really surprised how Ganz removed the W-Tales section and I agree how it is annoying how they remove the "free" and "extra" features, like this and the Family Deluxe.

Weren't they showing ads to read stories before? I bet some kids will be like: "Where are the W-Tales" and then, they'll go to the W-Shop and see that there are barely any W-Tales and if there are W-Tales, they probably own them already (they seriously need to release more books etc.)

I mean, seriously Ganz? This is bad and I agree with whoever said the stories may end up in the eStore, they may rely on that. Next, I bet they will make Wish Tokens for eStore. Why don't they make a different world for them, because I want more stories in the W-Shop and not the eStore or wherever else.

Re: Ganz Removes W Tales Stories from Kinzville Times

Peh, if these go in the Estore, then I will be so angry! D=
Soon enough we'll have to pay to actually LOG IN to WW.

Re: Ganz Removes W Tales Stories from Kinzville Times

Now I'm sooo relieved that WI had them! I love W tales!

Re: Ganz Removes W Tales Stories from Kinzville Times

I was JUST saying to my husband the other day about the free little extras they have and how it's a very good thing ot promote reading to our kiddos.

Wonder why they did this? Honestly, what could be their reasoning?
Perhaps, they're going to come out with new free books to read?

Re: Ganz Removes W Tales Stories from Kinzville Times

Thank you WI. My DD loves these stories too. She will be relieved she can find them here. WI continually makes WW more fun and less frustrating. Thanks for the library on WIki. We love WI!

Re: Ganz Removes W Tales Stories from Kinzville Times

Wow!

Thanks for pointing this out FIA. I've been so busy, I missed this news.

We are very lucky we have our WIki!!!

Re: Ganz Removes W Tales Stories from Kinzville Times

Well i'm sorry to see that webkinz has taken the books away.... Good thing we have Webkinz Insider.....

Re: Ganz Removes W Tales Stories from Kinzville Times

I m still getting the W Tales in my expanded Newspaper. Is this news from Asian/European accounts or are they recycling the stories? I really have enjoyed them, especially during the click to win contests. I will be sad. Thanks for letting me know! Maybe I will trade for books in the trading rooms now. Before I always sold them. Luckily I have WI!

Re: Ganz Removes W Tales Stories from Kinzville Times

It pays to read previous posts. I thought Ganz had removed all the W Tales so I went to check my front page. Sure enough, there is a W tale there: MollyPig's Friend.
But the post actually said most of the Tales were gone. So there you go. It pays to use WI too.

Re: Ganz Removes W Tales Stories from Kinzville Times

hmm! thats weird i wonder why they did that

Re: Ganz Removes W Tales Stories from Kinzville Times

That's too bad! I like reading W Tales. I'll have to purchase some at the WShop.

Re: Ganz Removes W Tales Stories from Kinzville Times

Wow, WI is wonderful. Thanks for archiving those stories. Blessings
