I am not sure what is going on, but on my really, really old computer, I can no longer do strength on Internet Explorer (it is way too choppy); but Firefox goes smoother. This is weird to me because my laptop is just opposite (Firefox doesn't do well with the strength, but IE is a little better; but I still can't pass any strength classes over level 5 on either computer!) I used to be able to pass level 10 of strength on Internet Explorer using my old computer. What did they do?????
Also, on my really old computer, the deluxe strength class freezes with the instruction screen covering the class every time! (and yes, I wait for Ms Cowoline to stop talking and since it happened the first time today, for the next pet I waited even longer and it still happened; silly me--I tried to do the deluxe strength on a third pet and it froze with the instruction screen too)
You are not alone
There have been widespread problems the past few weeks with the Strength classes. Hardly anyone is able to actually pass the classes. There are games in the arcade that have sped up, Alyssa's Star Challenge has also sped up.
I would suggest on the Deluxe part since I used to get that happening to me, I close out of the list between each time. I finish a class, exit the Report card before choosing another one, open Sign up here again, choose another class, exit the Report card etc.
This is not the most convienent way but I have never had that screen since I started doing that.
I hope it is just a glitch and gets fixed soon and not a new programming way.
I also have a slower laptop and a new laptop, one goes too fast and the slow one keeps hesitating. So it is a no-win situation I am afraid for me.
I have been having tons of problems with strength class and so have other family members using different computers. Is anyone else? It doesn't work properly.
We are also having problems with items in our docks going outside of the dock into other areas of our screen, and these items get in the way when we're doing things in Webkinz World. I keep sending messages to Ganz and never get a response or a resolution. Is anyone else having this problem? Can someone tell me where I should direct my messages to, because maybe I am not sending it to the right place?
Also having a glitch with my garden sometimes. After gardening, I lose my cursor and cannot move around my yard or anything.
Really annoying.. hope it's all fixed soon.
You are DEFINITELY not alone!
I'm using FireFox and Windows 7 on a computer less than a year old that I had custom built...so they don't DARE tell me it's my machine!
Strength class is a total bust. As someone above said, the instruction screen freezes and covers the class and it makes you fail every time. Higher levels? HA! I'm either trying to get to Level 1 or 2 on all my accounts! I'm just mad at myself for losing a double class day yesterday by trying again!
The crazy dock glitch is kind of irksome, too. The only advantage to the glitch is that if you are selling multiple items, a "glob" of them will hang in the sell area and you don't have to drag them so far! Bummer having them follow you around all of WW until you log off and back on!
I've had the same problem with my garden. Sometimes I have managed to move my invisible cursor around enough to find the "Things to Do" tab, gone back to Map of Kinzville, and then managed to get back into my room to finish the gardening.
Good luck and hang in! And thanks to all who have called Ganz...I'm sure they will have it fixed soon. All in all, they have kept WinterFest rolling pretty well this year (with awesome new items!); I'm sure that when it is over, the programmers will have more time for these glitches.
The biggest thing I have noticed affecting Academy classes is animated ads on the sidebar. The Snowball Throwing Snowman seems to be the biggest culprit, but the POTM (Blufadoodle/ Silverback) and deluxe ads are pretty bad, too. The Mazin' Hamsters ad eventually stops. When I go to the academy and get a lot of animated ads, I go back to the map and re-enter the academy, repeating until the worst of the ads, and hopefully all animated, are gone. It can be a pain, but it gives me the best chance of passing.
On another note, I haven't had TOO many issues with strength class, but i have found I have to press or release the mouse button as appropriate as soon as I get in the target bar, or even just before, I have a lot more missed targets than usual, even so. My biggest issue has been with speed class. My primary account (wapi 18 ) is level 7(report card/ 8 during class). I usually do it on IE on the oldest comp. in the house, but no matter how fast I move the mouse, it barely registers, OR it will get close, but progress/ recede as the target bar does, always staying short.
Yesterday when I was doing the Grooming class only one side of the hair would color and it finally just froze. I also had dock items stuck above each other. Ganz told me it was a connection problem with my isp. I think not, Webkinz is the only site giving me problems.
I have been thinking about the Kinzville Academy problems. Theh whole school idea is a great concept but the execution leaves a lot to be desired.
It is great they did away with the cost but that did not solve the problem.
What is needed is a whole revamp of the Kinzville Academy.
Instead of making it harder through the levels they need to just make it that you go through so many and pass. With the wide variety of computers and internet speeds it just is not working as they have it now.
I wish they would change it and make it fun and take the frustration out of it.
Yes,I too have been having to deal with these problems
The dock one really bothers me, when I'm trying to do something in WW they're just in my way, and then when I click the item, it brings another one up...
I haven't heard about the garden one though... I hope they can fix all of these soon!
