Dropping Happiness/Health/Hunger Points on Many Accounts


Many of our members are reporting that they are having a problem with the Happiness/Health/Hunger (HHH) points on their accounts.  Over the past few days, members have logged on to Webkinz World to discover an unexplained and considerable drop in HHH points for their pets.  WI member stripey190 always keeps her pets at full 100s, so she was shocked to log on and discover that every one of her pets had the exact same stats of 88 Happiness, 96 Health, and 80 Hunger.  Similar experiences are being reported all over the site.

Webkinz Insider member FroggyDoodle contacted Ganz regarding this problem:

 

Ganz customer service just called me back and this is what I was told. The drop in health/happiness/hunger is a new feature that Ganz has implemented....WAIT before yelling!!!...I explained to the customer service rep that I find this information hard to believe. I let her know that we have 7 accounts in our family, and that only 4 of the 7 accounts have been affected by this sudden drop. She put me on hold so she could discuss this with the supervisor multiple times (not sure why she didn't just put the supervisor on the phone), at any rate, I repeatedly explained the random nature of the drop amongst accounts...I also informed her that this is not just a problem I am having, but did mention the 100's of others experiencing the same problem, and again, I explained that it is not dependent on #'s of pets on an account, how active an account is, none of that. Again, she put me on hold and basically, the outcome was that she was going to have the supervisor call me. I explained that the info and explanation that the supervisor was giving was not at all consistent with the drastic changes being seen on some accounts versus no changes being seen on other accounts. 
 
So, that is all I have to pass on at this time. I am supposedly going to receive a call from one of the supervisors...not sure when, but hopefully soon and if and when I do, and if and when I get any more info, I will pass it on.
 
Forgot to mention...the one thing she did mention is for people to hold off on spending oodles of Kinzcash, because she then said the technical staff were looking into the problem (that is like giving the run around and saying yes there is a problem without actually saying they have problem...at least in my mind) and she said that if there are that many people with the problem, they should call in....so that number is...
 
Telephone: 1-866-WEBKINZ or 1-866-932-5469
 
When you call the message says that the # does not record voice messages...but if you just stay on the line it will roll over to a messaging system...so be patient, listen the message and wait to be rolled over, then leave your message regarding random, drastic drops in health/hunger/happiness. Also, the message says to email support@webkinz.com...but don't waste your time, nothing goes through that email address and you will just receive a no-reply indicating that your message has NOT been received.
 

 UPDATE:  FroggyDoodle has not yet heard back from Ganz, but WI member My Escape has:

 

I just got a call back from the help desk, so they are getting the messages left for them when we call the number and wait for the answering machine. At first, I was told by the CS rep that everytime we log on, the points will drop 5 points each, which will force us to feed them. But then I told her that my account was fine, my kids' accounts weren't. At that point, she went into all of our accounts and saw that first-hand. And then I also asked why, if they go down when you sign on, why my kids' accounts had dropped when they hadn't signed on in two weeks. She had no idea and had to speak with a supervisor and asked to call me back.

So she called me back and told me that "it's a bug" and there will be an update in the Kinzville News regarding the subject tomorrow. I asked her if our levels would be restored and she didn't know, but said it should have that info in the Kinzville News update. So, that's all I got, but was glad to hear it was a bug and not a permanent feature. And all we can do is wait to see if there really is a News update.

It's frustrating, though, that they tell you pretty much anything when they don't really know for sure what's going on. Sure hope the supervisor got it right.

 

Re: GLITCH NEWS: Dropping Happiness/Health/Hunger Points on Some Accounts

Hi everyone, we too have been feeding our pets like crazy-they are really really hungry and I have even had my one pet get sick twice in one week even after buying medicine and lots of chicken soup and popsicles. Sure hope the spring comes soon and everyone should be feeling better. All the best with those hungry pets.

Re: GLITCH NEWS: Dropping Happiness/Health/Hunger Points on Some Accounts

I thought I was going crazy at the phenomenal drop in health and hunger for my pets. I have been spending tons of time and KC on baths, exercise, and pet specific food. I'll stop spending KC and see what develops over the next few days.

I really hope the service rep was mistaken that this is a new feature. I don't really have the time to spend on the phone complaining about this... Hopefully, this new "feature" will be declared a "bug" and squashed!

This is the part I am more prone to believe. It is not consistent throughout. Not everyone's pets are seeing this drop and even not all accounts in the same household. Out of 12 accounts that I manage, only 5 of them are dropping below norms in all pets.
The worst one is my daughter's account which has over 80 pets. To recover the 3XH in all pets I would have to invest in over 2000 KC for them to be at top health. That takes a LONG time to earn and I can't see them actually putting us through that kind of cruelty.
The thing that gets me is that I made sure ALL of the pets were at 100 and never before have ALL of the pets in an account been affected by a 3XH drop that was SO drastic.
I will be doing my part and calling Ganz tomorrow to see if they are mistaken (99% of the time the reps know LESS than we do )

Re: GLITCH NEWS: Dropping Happiness/Health/Hunger Points on Some Accounts

My daughter experienced this problem, she has 20 pets and Saturday morning all of her pet were at 5 hunger and 15-20 health and happiness, the travel agency was gonna charge her 11,000 to make it better!! It cost about 3,000 in food and annother 1,200 for the travel agency for health and happiness. Just glad to know it was not anything she did. Hope they get it fixed soon!

Re: GLITCH NEWS: Dropping Happiness/Health/Hunger Points on Some Accounts

The most shocking thing about your customer service experience is that they didn't try to blame it on your computer and tell you to clear your cache! Thanks for taking the time to tell us about it. I hope they do get it fixed soon.

Re: GLITCH NEWS: Dropping Happiness/Health/Hunger Points on Some Accounts

Hi! I spoke witha supervisor from Customer Support yesterday and was informed yhat accounts connected with one of thier servers is causing the problem. Tech Support is aware of this issue and is working to correct it. Also for any of you who had problems last week with the Daily Kinzcare being stucks after all five days being revealed, ( My account was stuck all week this way); That also was a server issue. They have been having alot of problems with a couple of serbers and at least one of them they are going to replace. Asking people to just be patient...they are aware of various glitches and that when a customer signs up for a Webkinz account, their account is permantly assigned a specific server. This is why size, length of membership, etc. are not related to these glitches. The assignments are random and also based on available space but that in this way they can manage to accomodate more accounts.

Hope this helps all of you. I help cancer kids with their accounts in helping them log on daily and such and I was able to give several account names which were having trouble of all 13 of the accounts were assigned to thesame server. I took that as at least a more positive confirmation that the info I got was on point.

Tech Support has also confirmed to me directly that accounts are given what the techie called a home server which basically meant whatever server you got when you joined Webkinz World was going to be the server you get when you log on each day, unless it's maxed out and then you would jump to another server...like a "hunt program." But most of the time members actually go on the same server except during high peak events. That's the scoop I got, one MS certifed tech to another. Hope it helps.

Re: GLITCH NEWS: Dropping Happiness/Health/Hunger Points on Some Accounts

We had 2 accounts affected by that non-resetting problem....thatnks for sharing the info on that!!

Re: GLITCH NEWS: Dropping Happiness/Health/Hunger Points on Some Accounts

Guess what. I want to the spa, taking away 27000 KinzCash just for this!

Re: GLITCH NEWS: Dropping Happiness/Health/Hunger Points on Some Accounts

My son's account is one affected by this problem. His babies were all below 75 in all categories, he's really upset because he is now broke and his babies are still bummed out. Poor guy!

Re: GLITCH NEWS: Dropping Happiness/Health/Hunger Points on Some Accounts

That happens to me! So I never feed them lol

Re: GLITCH NEWS: Dropping Happiness/Health/Hunger Points on Some Accounts

it happened to me to. im so agervated or what ever. but whats the point to this. i was away the whole vacation so i couldnt look a them.But by the way, buy lots o lots of tocos. they boost the health really far.

Re: GLITCH NEWS: Dropping Happiness/Health/Hunger Points on Some Accounts

...

I guess I'm lost. Why does Ganz want their pets to get only 80% hunger? Why would they implement a feature like that?

Re: GLITCH NEWS: Dropping Happiness/Health/Hunger Points on Some Accounts

Luckily, we have not been affected by Ganz's newest glitch. I am sorry to hear of this trouble that is bothering our members.
I was very excited to read about the "wait and leave a message anyways at the 1-866# as I am STILL awaiting response from my inquiries for my January Loot Bag info from when I adopted the POM. Sadly, they have changed the message system ... this quickly I think I will never get any help from them in regards to this problem of mine. Needless to say, I have given up on waiting to adopt POMs and just adopt them whenever as I have missed out on 2 POM Loot Bags even though I followed the directions, so to speak, both times I tried to adopt.
Hope everyone has been having a great week
Dee

Re: GLITCH NEWS: Dropping Happiness/Health/Hunger Points on Many Accounts

Good to know I'm not the only person with this problem. My pets all dropped to the exact same levels as everyone else's. I think this new "feature" is disappointing though.

Re: GLITCH NEWS: Dropping Happiness/Health/Hunger Points on Many Accounts

Thank you for all the info. i am scared to log into my accts...I have 5 accts with over 6oo pets?????? I will not be a happy camper!!!

Re: GLITCH NEWS: Dropping Happiness/Health/Hunger Points on Many Accounts

I can't even get on to webkinz, it is telling me that that the link appears to be broken,
is anyone else getting this message when you try to log on to the site.

Re: GLITCH NEWS: Dropping Happiness/Health/Hunger Points on Many Accounts

Yes I have been noticing this problem and youre lucky that your hunger level only goes to 80, mine goes all the way down to 50.
I hope Ganz fixes this soon!

---------- tinagirl20 added 1 Minutes and 21 Seconds later ----------

Yes I have been having the problem also today and with kinzville newz. What is going on with Ganz?

Re: GLITCH NEWS: Dropping Happiness/Health/Hunger Points on Many Accounts

This happened to me, too! Mine didn't go below 85 on their meters, but it took me awhile to bring them all back up to normal! I always keep my pets at 100%-hope they fix this soon!
