Ok so ya kno how communal contests are like for everyone? (hint: communal-community) well think about this: if you click join the contest, you dont even have to play the game at all to get the prize. this is not fair (i think) for those (like me) to try over and over to play the game while some (trust me, i know some) people click join and get prize and dont even help. not only is this dishonest, its downright UNFAIR for some to try so hard to achieve the goal. if you (like me) keep playing and playing the game, then you deserve the prize. otherwise thats like cheating yourself. while some dont care, its very disturbing to other that actually should get the prize. do you think this system is fair?
if you don't play at least once you can't pick up the prize my mom forgot to play on one of her accounts and wasn't able to pick up the prize on that account...
That's not how it has been working for us. I play the games a lot of times on my account, but my brother can't always play. He still gets the prizes each week. I try to play extra times on my account to make up for him, but I don't want him to miss the prize so I vote and pick up his gift for him.
This is the way Ganz has it set up. If you vote, play, or both, you will be able to claim the prize as long as you remember to enter. The only way you would not be able to claim your prize is if you forgot to enter. Straight from the Webkinz News site:
If the Community has successfully reached or surpassed the goal, everyone who participated in the Communal Contest (those who voted, helped with the challenge by contributing, or both) will be rewarded with the prize selected in the poll on the Monday following the challenge, and a new Communal Contest will then begin.
I personally try to not accept the item if I know for a fact I didn't get to play during the weekend. With my job, what I could think will be a week I can play the game at least 3 or more times can end up being the busiest week I have for a long time. I feel I have to play at least one time through at least an entire chance (which can go pretty far depending on what game it is), before I can accept the item.
Right now, I don't see too huge of an issue if the people don't play and still get a prize. Most of the prizes have been rather poor lately.
That said, when they do add things such as hard to get items, a spin on say the SuperWheel or that claw game; yes, I feel they have to play several times to get to play those. It shouldn't be too hard to know how many times an account has played a game in order to prove they've played and earned the prize.
I hope this helps - I plan on playing as much as I can this week to help out.
