Default A couple {hundred} ideas that Ganz needs to do. {updated Nov 6 2009}

The main direction/point to this thread is WW programming, usability, enjoyability, and not overly emphasizing estore add-ons...so that we no longer have to experience or add new words to vocabulary and dictionary itself. It could be a new {webkinz} world, where you are no longer 'frozen up', 'stuck down', 'booted out', 'lost over', 'scripted around' and the too familar 'please waited'.

Spend more time, energy, and money {especially WW profits} on the site not estore, newz or anything else like that. That means buying more servers, getting accounts off the bad servers, putting them on new servers, making the server{s} choosable {example Dizzywood}, and doing/re-doing programming from bottom up so the site will work as it was intended to/should have {from adopting, logging in, loading to everything else including having to reload areas to access, events not working at all, etcetera}. When the WW site went live Ganz was not an 'internet' company in any way; it has been almost half a decade, so beyond/past time to get with the program. Hire or get volunteers to help tech/support; this is included in the need to have real service and for all time zones not just KT/EST 'business' hours, email that is available and usable {with real response and not form letter} for all, 24/7/365 {all zones, all needs}. There are plenty of people willing and able to help in this from this site and other 'fan' sites such as this one; we know the site better than those that are currently being paid to handle {supposedly} customer service and even technical issues with the site. Otherwise quit using paying member {from the 'just' bought a plush all the way to wow how much stuff have you bought with all those accessories types} as 'beta testers'; when it goes 'live' it should work and continue to work right; in the programming world this isn't always an exact science but within reason which the site has NOT been with introducing or keeping things running.

Also have a plan, a real one, for newz updates on the so called newz site; the technical area and heads-up parts rarely tell us anything plus then they do {rarely, if at all} they are totally late -- give the members the information, when they need it, which would also save time and energy for the customer support people fielding questions {being that even 1 person updating with information for everyone to read and know about would save hundreds to thousands of CR time}. This includes keeping it updated as to progress of anything that is being worked on; examples include the park and any issues listed in the wiki section that they supposedly are reading/looking through. Members should not have to go all over the place to find the information, if they even know where else to look, to find out things nor should so many, hundreds or more, have to call about issues before they are looked in to {example the HHH fiasco just a short while back, overloaded or inaccessible servers, scheduled maintenance which means just tell people it's going to be down and starting at least when and so on}.

Fix and compensate in various ways, with no hassle over it, the following things; VTC {virtual trading card packs}, TC {trading card} codes, randomizer and odds {giving out duplicate from 2-5 in same pack of 5, repeating same 5 cards over and over and over, duplicating prizes, wshop or lowball kc without even series prizes, overload of posters, etcetera}, trading card game, glam bags and trading cards where user is literally made to log out totally and back in usually after each time to use/do anything with; make the VTC postable more than 1 per time and the same with 'storage' items {which for months now has made forced log-out if sending even one storage to someone then attempting to send another storage not even necessarily same type to someone else during same log-in}. Also where coupons have taken kc, coupons plus not given item{s} as well as any other 'glitches' were games and so forth did not pay out the kc and/or prizes they were supposed to; this includes anyone trying to use more than one coupon, of any value {not just the 25% or ?5% ones but all have been doing it} who end up with taken coupons and taken kc but no items in return. 'Missing' items that are stuck in walls or floors due to programming so cannot be seen by user including those items that are just 'gone' but the user knows that no one has accessed their account to sell/trade/mail off items, with no grousing about it just 'give' them their items BACK.

Events of any type should be fair to all zones; this includes dumb dog {doug}, vacation raffles, click to win and so on. These events especially click to win need to be worth sitting/waiting/clicking on, happening more often {new event as well as times able to get present event items}, good/better prizes {this includes dailies, too} with vacation raffles and dog gem hunting more than KT/Canadian or American EST so show up more than once per color zone per day at the very least. Vacations should be for more than one pet, more places to go, more things to do, no ghost or no HHH drop, ability to extend ticket before time up so won't lose game if playing, raffle prizes actually given {and past winnings compensated for blank/air prizes}.

There should be no lowball kc/no kc totally, no sap glop/foods and/or other 'prizes' same {lowball, 'joke' type} from paid sections {woodland, either charm, etcetera}, no crossing with lowball seeds for pachinko {find other way to get the seeds}, fix the one in a million type odds of getting anything decent. Deluxe, monthly and other special wheels/events run all day not just one certain hour including POTM which should have more things to do. Fix the POTM and new releases issues that happen every single month, quit duplicating pets used {around at least 150 pets of different kinds and sizes to pick from, not a shortage}, and make it easier and rarer to have to get compensation for the programming issues causing losses when adopting these including dropping the bull of as is because legally we both know that is not true/valid.

Change the daily/'regular' wheel items up/up more often; this includes balloon darts & vacation items as well as taking off the overload of lowball/worthless 'prizes'. There should be more ways to get tokens, to use tokens, kinz koins/koins for more than 1000 kc worth, and a bank {long ago promised} of some sort for saving. Deluxe should actually be worth at least the extra amount of real money paid out including new deluxe prize machine {one that copies cares where someone else gets same prize} cutting out lowball prizes plus especially monthly third item being wstore junk and so forth; it doesn't count that {maybe} 1 in 1000 get a kinzstyle item when others routinely get nothing more than wshop {junk, low priced at that} or things like recipe food.

Dumb dog {doug gem} issues should be fixed, and compensated for losses, as well as making it in one place for all day {that account's day cycle} so that other time zones beyond Canadian/American have a decent chance or chance at all to do it. Fix the other dumb dog {arte} issues, ditto compensation, and make odds better on getting needed gems; ditto odds in charm, mire, woodland, etcetera}. Shut up arte and pj for those who have been in there a few times; it's unnecessary, messes up already shaky flash and other programming and loading, and it's downright annoying. Fix and compensate for the academy problems, making the classes work, work better & more reasonable to complete; also make the stadium competitions more real, and the classes being taken match what the competition is for. Bring out the long ago promised other competitions as well. The junior site has an age/ability/level function programmed in to it; ww should have this as well, which could be set the same way per account for those who are too old for junior but otherwise unable to totally handle in part or full the way that ww is set up -- there are those that need help with dexterity or coordination or attention issues plus some games are too hard even for adults, for those who played the game to guru status in younger years, games such as zum that have never worked right {speed, clouds hiding while timer still going, speed there and with fairies, arbitrary score limits that claim player cheated/got too high of score so no score posted and no kc given even when higher score mandatory to get trophy}. Should put out new games, games where level can be saved, pausing abilities while playing, etcetera. There should be parental controls much the same as jr and/or ads on the site but for locking out an account's ability to sell to wshop, trade and/or mail. Timer for being online, alarm to catch curio rares and things like that or to help with watching time online, timer for woodland {suggestion was like a little fairy in bottom bar that would light up when it's time to go check something like that}.

Storage for wallpaper and flooring, items in storage would store like do in dock {multiple just gets one 'section' but numbered for amount}, all items storable in all containers {wallpaper, flooring, gold, etcetera}, categorize/folder/section items in dock with more drop down choices/sections and/or ability to collapse/expand section{s} {examples food, holiday, pet specific, exclusive, POTM, theme} and dock stays way organized not resetting during trade nor other times, storage for coupons {wshop, wow, bingoz} and wallpapers/flooring could have 'book' for storage like gems and cards already have so stored not in dock.

All clothing should fit on all pets or at least make a few items for the fish, snakes and other animals that have so few clothing options. Should be able to rename pets, name rooms, pick from box for adoption extra and/or not duplicate until one of each on the account; this goes for exclusive, signature, POTM and other items like that}. Clothing to go with room themes, animal slippers, costumes of webkinz characters, medical, construction, wait staff, police/fire, wigs of all sorts including regular hair types/kinds, jewelry, saddles, artist, uncle sam, london bobby/guard, armor furniture reproduction in wearable clothing {kimono and so on}, ghost, more types of dresses, better fitting on all animals {shows in adverts on 2 legged even when animal is always on all 4 like cat and dog and so forth}, rest of racing outfit/more outfits like that, complete partial outfits out to date, interactive mannequins to display clothes

All trophies including academy prizes, estore items and so forth should be tradeable and postable; parental block could be made available on each account for personal setting{s}. There should be additionally some way to have a special mailing sub-list or something at least if not for everyone to be able to send to other accoutns more than 3 items and/or more than once a day. Jellybean challenge should have more chances plus prize not edible but actual trophy so could display other than in fridge or other storage. New seeds, harvest trees {apple, orange, cherry, date, banana, pineapple, etc}, grape, and fantasy ones {party hats/presents/toys, candy, cupcakes, gumdrops} should be made available in wshop as well as miracle grow/fertilizer and some type of weed killer plus a sprinker system.

Room names should not be from pre-set list and should have ability to merge/put together 2 rooms to make bigger as well as delete unneeded/unwanted rooms plus select where room placed and/or option to choose kc or something else when 'given' room, upgrade to larger size, have second floor, moveable doors, rooms not have to be connected to other rooms, doors to replace/put over original ones {match theme and so on}, doors moveable or coverable with tapestries/plaques/signs/fake wall panel, reusable wallpaper/flooring, items go anywhere {in, out, underwater, treetop}, items able to be rotated and resized and not stuck to square{s}/grid including item{s} not stuck to certain spot but could be centered on table and so on plus diagonal and other placement, something to enable furniture re-coloring/redesign plus way to make each wall different {one paper on one wall with another type on another wall} and also much like jr where the decorating of single color {at least} walls could be done or undone {back to previous} although much better in ww case to have it where the previous wallpaper/flooring is put back in dock so it can be used or reset to a better room {where a room was forced or placed so that it messed up walls or whatever on that room}.

All items should be interactive, at least some have some sort of game to them, gardening as well as recipe & pattern solvers should have way to buy & sell in bulk which could be done even with gardening pop up saying harvested with button to sell right then but otherwise some sort of program to put in 1 of an item then input amount to buy or sell. Interactive items should be everything but especially park and other like items, none of which should be estore. For estore, as it does not seem in any 'danger' of stopping production of whatever sort {coding}, lower the prices to make real money value more in line with fact one time coding job with no material/production costs for any actual plush/item meaning {for example} online only 'plush' would be at least half as much. Make estore point cards available at retailers as promised since whole point supposedly was to not have to use credit card. Make more real items and less virtual only; quit using most employee time and teching and so forth for the estore and so called newz site which have no real use in ww itself. Quit mixing themes by putting some in wshop or otherwise available but certain other pieces or part of basic theme estore only. NONE of the 'new' ideas/additions here or elsewhere in here should be estore; they should all be part of ww, buyable from the wshop.

The 'would be nice' things: game for computer with expansion packs {themes, etcetera} linkable to site {re: Sims, Pokemon, etcetera}, fishing pond maybe like duck pick game, update secret chef show, interactive notepad for notes about rooms or reminders of certain events or whatever with maybe settable alarm clock so won't miss rare or limit time on computer and so on, choice to set animated items as continuously running or just once or on/off timing, map feature to show which pets in which room, 'call' feature so all pets or certain ones go to certain room when 'told' all at once, place for rares or clothing or other special items in curio and other places in one place and not just for one hour and/or place to go for rare or other special items for maybe small extra fee {on demand type}, ability to turn lights on/off in room totally and/or reproduce day/night through {interactive?} windows

Continued: new themes in total with INTERACTIVE items and 'track'/'road' pieces etcetera such as party theme {they said birtday but I was thinking go all the way with overall party theme with accessories like a 'cake', not edible unless they ever get food where it will set on table, and banners for b'day and something for New Year's or some other holiday just any time there could be get together for some kind of holiday or whatever}, nursery, music/art/instruments {really playable?}, 60's hippie, blue {or any main color}, construction, aquarium, island, circus, train, starry night, playground, ground/floor/wall {stones, walks, sidewalks, hill, puddle, river/water, section/square, floor/wall inside/outside like grass or sand or snow or fall and so on}, motorcross, racing, fair/theme park/park, train, beach party, castle, ride on vehicles, doll/dollhouse, computer {games or ?}, remote control car, fish tank/aquarium {once a day to clean/feed like gardening}, Halloween, gardening, xmas {including present as item for under tree or where ever or other things along same line}, beds/superbeds twin so less space, bunkbeds that sleep 2, double beds that sleep 2 {bed ideas pizza, toast, baby grand, igloo pet goes inside of, under/over rainbow, treasure chest, fishtank, piggy bank, crib, sleeping bag, glass dome, caveman, bird's nest, clamshell type, trash can, pull out sofa bed are some I've seen suggested}

Continued: wash hands in kitchen sink, store things in cabinets etcetera, cash register as separate item not attached to cabinet or stand or whatever, more/new rugs, lights, windows {decent sized, more, different, interactive}, curtains, blankets, trees that float down blossoms or leaves, fabrics to make clothes/blankets/quilts/curtains, fans, shelving to place items on such as trophies/books/toys, statues not necessarily made of snow of webkinz characters, interior walls instead of dividers, floating dining table, animated pictures, list could be made for special category even if deluxe so could send more than once a day, new foods {peppers, croissants, more types of cookies and ice cream and cake plus Snout Supreme from WTales story, corndog, new secret recipes, recipes told not having to be discovered to use charm candy and other certain foods so abundant as 'prize' from certain sections, recipes for salad with different wshop foods

Plush of any retired animal that never had other size made {pegasus, cheekies, etcetera} plus new animals such as insects, underwater, farm and wild, other butterflies, spider{s}, ferret and other like, different dogs/cats/domesticated, fantasy {alien, scarecrow, etc.}, love/cheeky in other forms, more jurassic etcetera type but plush, with interactive PSIs {gazebo okay in right direction but no more stoves, tubs, etcetera}, pets for virtual pets {disney had pluto and goofy}. Bring out better PSIs, bring back 'retired' {NOT estore} such as lavas and other items that were brought out way back in the beginning {as exclusive, maybe some PSIs, rare collection or something, including the lavas in same and different and even multi-color, different sizes later to broaden the collection and so on}.

NEW IDEAS TO BE SORTED/CATEGORIZED:

No more at this time, thanks! {Keep them coming, though!!}

I will categorize the newest ideas when I put them up as soon as I can; I also take that opportunity to try to clear things up even more and straighten things up.

I hope they start from the top working their way down; the first part{s} most important to everybody {trying} to use the site so while extras are nice they are just extras. As for being all mine some are, some are a combination of mine and others' and some are others' that I worked in with the same type idea {theme} that I had so it's nice to see it come together finally.

Starting at the top it would make is usuable and then some, with the latter ideas {fi done} making it more fun at least as well as more usable for some, yes.

Id love it if they would get rid of the glitches
Pay more attention to regular Webkinzers and not play favorites with the Deluxe or Estore folk
Fix the ridiculous ghost and put him on steroids or something
and get new themes like a cave and birthday party.

Definitely they need to work on programming, servers and things like that. I'd rather see nothing at all new for a while if they would just work on making the things we do have actually work. That pretty much shows them they need to back off the estore and all because it does nothing to help the actual site. Having said that I do like the party theme; say just party then have accessories to buy like birthday cake and banner then maybe other holiday items where there would be a get together/party going on, I really like your idea on that.

Ehhhhh . . . That's quite the laundry list you have there, Key Largo! . . . .All I can say is W-O-W!

It's obvious you can teach Ganz's techs and creative team a thing or two or 1000!

I don't understand the tech-y stuff but it sure sounds like you know what you're talking about. As for the other stuff, if they only implement half of what you're suggesting, WW would be beyond AMAZING!

Big REP to you for having the guts to post all this, let alone coming up with/putting together all these terrific ideas!

Writing it down and having people comment fine tunes it all; like the party theme, when someone mentioned birthday party with the answer being oh a complete party theme with accessories. One or on hundred ideas but the most important thing is if they'd do something with the servers. I was thinking yesterday since they have so many people finding out servers fof the ghost if that will end up helping find out just how many servers they have {and how many are bad; they finally admitted to two, 1 of which my main account is on, server 8 unless that makes 3}
