Many Lil'Kinz ask: Why am I not a Webkinz yet? I will answer that in 4 words, the system is slow. It can take up to 2 hours for the system to update your status. So after you make the requirement it is not a big deal. No one judges or no one should judge by a status, rep amount, or post count, that is not what makes you who you are. It is WHO YOU ARE. As a person. So just don't worry about it.
