Default Newsflash: Party Didn't Work!

I wish Ganz would fix whatever glitches they have with their parties.

The parties have been an exercise in frustration. I've tried about six of them--and it's only worked correctly once. Once!

Mind you, I'm an adult and I'm great at following instructions, etc. If it has worked for me one out of six times, imagine how frustrating it would be for kids. My daughter tried to have one once---it didn't work for her either.

This time, I was signed in, in advance of the party time, in the right color zone. When the party time came, nothing happened. Yes, it was the right time, the right day, the right zone...nothing happened. I checked and rechecked. Nothing. After several minutes, I signed out and signed in again. Nothing.

Meanwhile, two of my other accounts were guests--they were signed in, in advance of the party time, in the right color zone. They had accepted their invitations, etc. Again, for them, nothing happened.

That's a half hour of my life that I won't be getting back!

Here's a picture of Nugget, my sad little host, all alone. There's a depressing sight!

So until Ganz gets the "party issues" worked out, I'm not going to buy any more parties.

Aw, I'm sorry that happened to you, especially since it was a special day. My party was at 12 pm too, in yellow zone.

Hi Bp13, I share your frustration - even before the Mayor requirements I've tried hosting parties and attending parties from others but had no success. I have gotten into 1 where it seemed the host was a no show but I don't believe you can get into someone's WW home without them being logged on.

During Winterfest I even borrowed my Dad's laptop hoping that if I could guarantee 3 pets would be in attendance (me and 2 of my kids) it would finally work for us but no such luck. I've even called my niece to remind her to accept the invitation and then reminded her nows the time to try to join us but nada. We try loggin in before hand, logging out and back in when the button doesn't pop up. We've checked and rechecked the invitation and the time the zone and the day are all correct but it still doesn't work for us. I've seen threads where groups get together and I can't figure out what I'm doing that's wrong or for that matter how to get the party widget to show up on My page so I can have members here join us if they are free. I'm hoping someday one of my bashes will be a success.

I know from previous problems it'll be a long time before it gets any of Ganz's attention and I'm not holding my breathe it'll be resolved anytime soon, but I know my kids would love for it to get worked out so they can take their kinz to a partay.

I'm sorry it's doing the same frustrating things for you, too!

I know--the most frustrating thing is that it worked once, but we can't seem to re-create whatever it was that made it work. I really think the problem is glitches on Ganz' side, not anything we are doing or not doing. So frustrating, though!

And that's the main thing, right? It's frustrating enough for us, but this should be a fun thing from kids. If it doesn't work more often than it does work, it should be taken down till they work out the bugs, in my opinion. Let's hope they eventually do listen.

Good luck to your kids eventually getting their partay!

Default Re: Newsflash: Party Didn't Work!

This has been an issue for almost 2 weeks now. Not everyone has access to WI and some are not aware of going to the Glitch section or Somebody Help section and are very frustrated.
I have a post in the sections to warn other about this.
Ganz has been aware of the situation and are advising no one using the Parties for 2-3 weeks until they find out exactly what is happening.

You need to call Ganz and have them refund your kinzcash
They will refund 1000 kc for each party you planned that was not able to be done.

They can not take away the party packs out of the WShop but we have suggested them to do so. It is very frustrating and hopefully they get it fixed soon, but we will not even know when it is fixed. the Rep that I spoke with told me the only way to know is to plan a party and see if it works, but they do advise to not try for a few weeks. If you are unsuccessful again then call back and get your kinzcash back

Below is the contact info for Ganz.

My sister scheduled a party for tonight and we had the same problem - no "go to party" button. We all logged out and in, tripled checked the invitation, made sure we were in the right zone and nothing! Oh well, hope they get it fixed soon!

Aw, I'm very sorry it happened to your family as well, Sue! Fingers crossed it gets fixed soon...

Default Re: Newsflash: Party Didn't Work!

I wish I had seen this glitch report before I tried mine-just happened right now. Paid $1000 KC for the party for today at 11 am, and even though we were all logged in to the correct zone (even some non household friends were too) half an hour ahead of time, with invitations accecpted, no party. This happened to my daughter 2 weeks ago, but she is only 9 and I just figured she didn't follow the directions at some point. Now I know. That really stinks that you pay all that KC for nothing. They should take them out of the store until they fix it.
