Just like so many other people, I have had many, many problems with the "Please Wait..." popping up for everything I do. Can't garden, can't load dock, login takes forever, everything moves in super slow motion. It's been slow since the major upgrade (downgrades???) of the map a few weeks ago, but the last few days have been painfully slow.
Anyway, I tried a few suggestions I'd read on the forums:
One was to install free GameBooster software. This very, very marginally increased my WW speed from super super slow to super slow.
Another was to check my internet speed, which clock in at 3.4 Mbps (which should be more than enough for WW)
Also, I cleared my cache for the zillionth time because that's the trick they tell you to do for every problem. No change whatsoever
I have been using the Google Chrome browser for the last past year or so, but I decided to switch back to Internet Explorer. Again, no change (actually, I think it may have been slower.)
I had read that some servers had been acting up more than other servers, and remembered that if you use the Firefox Browser you can check your server # in the box at the bottom. (wapi___)
Anyway, mine is wapi5 (for server 5).
But anyway, the amazing thing was that after I switched to Firefox, my speed on Webkinz World was suddenly zippy fast again. I gardened, jumped around from place to place of the map with no annoying "Please Wait..." I even loaded my dock which has 3000+ items in about 20 seconds, and finally I could feed my starving pets and sell about 300 vegetables back to the Wshop.
Just to check things out, I logged in and out a few more times using Firefox just to see if it was a lucky coincidence, and it worked the same every time.
I don't know if this will help anyone else, but it may be worth a try if you've been getting frustrated with a super slow Webkinz World. Good luck!
