A major drawback for gamers. I hope Ganz pays attention to WI threads and opinions as this problem requires immediate attention and resolution. Thanks for posting.

I agree with you! It is quite frustrating. Also being logged out in the middle of a game is frustrating but that's another issue.

I hope they do too! If this could be fixed I would be so happy!

Thanks for your input!

LOL, the thing that really gets me mad is when I finish the game and it logs me out without giving me KC.

Jumping Wizard, do you use Mozilla Firefox as your browser? If you do, get an extension called "Ad Block Plus" and you will never see those ads again. And if the ads are blocked, you won't lose games any more.

jump, it is not only while playing a game. i just went this morning to do my gardening and besdies the ads switching as they do (which makes gardening a disaster)......i was in ff and the ad wouldn't load and adobe crashed on me while it was trying to read the ad.

i totally agree. i know they want to spruce up the site, but this is getting frustrating.

Yes I do. That would be really helpful, but does that also block things like the "Click to Win" Ads such as the Hop commercials and the Snow White promotion a while back? So would you suggest turning it back on for those special promotions?

Thank you so much for the advice! I will be super excited if it works!

Yes, I think it's hard on all parts of WW! What's really bad, I think, as you mentioned, is when they switch. When they stay stationary it doesn't seem to bad, but when they switch it's 3-5 seconds of torture

Also, it crashes on me all the time too! It used to be only on the style job at the Kinzville Academy, but now it's other places too!

I agree completely!! When the ads switch, it not only causes lag, but also creates a distraction to certain players such as myself. Webkinz would run way faster if they didn't switch the ads so much or perhaps not at all.

Hi everyone,
This is a huge problem that will cause Ganz to lose WW members. I do believe that the "random logout" problem is caused by the advertisements. That makes it the same issue, not another one.

This problem started for many members at the same time as the animated ads. The "random logout" problem started for me when there were more animated and video ads added to WW in the last couple weeks.

The problem is so bad that it is always hard to login on the very first page. The login boxes do not seem to be active until after the ad or ads run. Then alot of keyboard pounding is required until the login box shows any typed letters and is ready to accept. How does Ganz expect that the children will figure this out? My godchildren are the reason that I started my own Webkinz account and joined Webkinz Insider.

Ganz needs to hear from anyone who has a concern. You can either call them on the phone or use the "contact us" section in WW. Every person who calls means that there are at least ten who do not have the time to do it. "The squeaky wheel gets the oil".
