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".

Very well written! I do recommend people complain to them so that they know it's a problem.

Thanks for the response! You hit the nail on the head.

Jumping Wizard, I posted the answer to your question on your page but I will post it here too. The Ad Block Plus DOES block ads like Hop, but you can turn off the blocker, log in, click your ad, and turn the blocker right back on. Let me know how this works out for you!

Okay, Hibiscus...you are a saint. I just installed it and it's taking less than 5 seconds to load each WI page, where it used to take at least 15. That is seriously amazing.

Thanks so much for sharing this with me! I'm off to see how well it works on WW!

Thanks!

I agree! They're distracting, they slow the game down, and is anyone really looking at them while playing a game?

Agreed.
I was playing a game the other day (I don't remember which game, but it was a timed game. Webkinz Rally maybe?), and the Hoodwinked animated ad showed up, and caused it to freeze a little bit, so I ended up losing.

Place your Webkinz window on the right side of the screen, so the ad is cut off by the screen edge. Or (only works with some browsers, like Firefox) make your Webkinz window smaller by dragging the right edge to the left, until the ad disappears. Problem solved.
