Well at least knowing that I can guess a half full jar is about 5,000 plus or minus a thousand or so... I would love to get a Jelly Beans Jar (The trophy) Well wouldn't we all.
It would be nice if the responses were more like Hotter and Colder. Maybe even something like
Oh no, that is way off. Please try again. More than 500 off of the answer
That was pretty Good. 500 or less away from the answer
Wow! you are close. 100 or less away
Almost there. 50 or less away
You are right there. 10 or less away
I mean do the math. With only 5 guesses, you still aren't extremely likely to get a lot of KC any way. I also believe there should be a KC prize that shares how close your final answer was.
501+ receives 10KC
500 or less receives 15KC
100 or less receives 25KC
50 or less receives 50KC
10 or less receives 100KC

Had to laugh about your comments on the charm forest. I have to add one. I love how you are supposed to win a dining room set and you get one table and TWO chairs. You'd think they could at least give you four chairs to go with your table. Two chairs at that long table looks terrible and there is no way to get two extra chairs so it would look nice.

I am in 100% agreement - The two I feel the strongest about are the quickdraw - borrrring and bingo. This is from an adult perspective

From a kids perspective, I have an 8 year old daughter who loves webkinz. She quickly became infuriated at bingo. We have a bingo night a couple of times a year at her school so she loves bingo. She realized quickly that the bingo on webkinz was not a "fair" game of bingo (her words) Get rid of those coupons and then you'll have lots of people who enjoy playing it rather than just a few.

She loved the quickdraw before she played. She thought she could scratch it off and that it would be more than just all (very little chance) or nothing. When she then saw right away that she didn't have the first number and that meant nothing, it became "lame" So now she no longer does the quickdraw at all. She loves the dunk the zingo. She tries to the gem mine daily. She does the charm forest although not a religiously as she did at first. She liked the employment office when she first joined but then she said it became too hard. Now if she wants to win the kinzcash from it, she'll hand me the computer and ask me to do it. So from a kids perspective, the employment office is now a bust.

she does play the games and has her favorites. Her favorite things on webkinz though are decorating the rooms and cooking and caring for the webkinz. However right now she is terrified to decorate her rooms as she is afraid everything will disappear. She would like to be able to do more fashion things with the webkinz and more caring (more interactivity with the actual virtual webkinz).

Back to the original post though, I really think that all of those suggestions you made would make a huge difference in the enjoyment. Its not a matter of gimme, gimme, gimme, its a matter of having fun at it. I wish webkinz was listening.

I agree with you pretty much on everything. I wish they had the Super Wheel more often. I joined in August and I've only seen it once. It should come up at least once a season, especially as the Wheel of Yum is so lame (5 bananas as prize???).

Oh yeah, ban that dumb Bingoz coupons. It's ridiculous that kids can't play it. It's such a useless game now. Same with QuickDraw. If you're going to do a QuickDraw, I wish they put in exclusives, like prizes I would actually want rather than a random dresser from a theme I'm not interested in.

Thank you for voicing the frustration that we feel at home. While I don't agree with everything you said, I do agree with most of it. I'd like to get rid of Bingoz (!!!!) & Quickdraw as well. They are pointless and we gave up on them almost immediately. I'm also afraid some of the activities are too related to gambling (Quickdraw especially) and I don't want to teach my kids that it's ok to do on WW, but not in real life.. And some activities feel rigged (Wheel of Wow - we always get 20KC, the odds don't add up). I like you idea of making the Jellybean Challenge an actual challenge with hints that get you closer. It is a waste of time. I'm ok with the Charm Forest & Gem Search, although I would like them to eliminate either the Bad Fairy or the Sap Glop as well. WW is catering to adults more and more and forgeting about the little kids who can't do half of the games or jobs anyway. My kids can only play the games that are in their rooms anyway.

Thanks for venting for all of us! Maybe it will get heard.
