Default Failed Communal Contest

It looks like we did not meet the goal, and even though Ganz miscalculated, it doesn;t look like we will get anything for all the work!!!

That's funny/sad since they admitted they miscalculated. Oh well...I played a lot and got 2 trophies out of it!

Personally, I think they should've given those who participated in this week's contest the prize or a consolation prize for attempting this as they clearly miscalcuated. When I read this, I was like "No way are we going to get this - 6 MILLION yes, but not 6 BILLION."

In fact, I knew this was off because for just ONE billion codes at Coca-Cola's redeem caps contest? - took them nearly two weeks after I found out, at approximately 1 million=1.5 million codes a day. (basically just under three years if done at 1 million a day).

Or, more simply - You'd have better luck getting all the levels on Zingoz Pop for the trophy or the Eager Beaver Dam trophy than getting even close to a million.

I know, grumpy gus, but this is simple math, and that's why I'm disappointed - more so for the younger ones than myself.

All this said, I say more people enter this contest so we can go and win the prize, even more in case we get another "billion" point contest again.

Yea, too bad for those who really spent all their time playing that game. I did the best I could for two games, then looked at the guage. After seeing how far was needed to go..I knew it wasn't going to happen. lol

I still don't see why people wanted 500 kinzcash as the prize. I voted for the rose bed myself. At least it could have been a good trade item. 500 cash is too easy to get if you try(jobs, arcade, WoW, wishing well, quizzy's)


Here's hoping that the new challenge will be more "reasonable"

My eyes popped out when I saw all those zeroes and I said to myself "Gee, Ganz must have more accounts/sales/volume than I had ever dreamt if they set the goal THAT high."

I was very disappointed in seeing them post the BIG RED X over the unachievable goal even they admitted to. They could have done something else (like a message that they made a mistake) in consideration of all of us who played our brains out just to try and reach the goal they had set!!

Not a very good confidence booster here!

I know, and I'm really disappointed. At least Ganz realized their miscalculation. But, I think that the new feature is really cool! They are really making sure Webkinz is a great website.
