Is this sort of stuff happening in the Galore Section? If so, you really, really need to PM a mod about it. If this happens a lot, they will change the way the system works. If you are not getting these things in the food section, like your PSFs, then it is not as big of a deal. Don't get me wrong, it is not right that you work hard and do not get the prize, but, it's just a PSF.
Does anyone else think you shouldn't be able to change the contest once it has entries?
If you say it ends _____ and people go to the trouble to enter, I think you should have to honor that and award the prizes between the people who did enter. It's not fair when they just keep changing the date until they get TONS of entries. ANd it also isn't fair to all of a sudden say there is no end date till they get--------- many entries unless you said that BEFORE the contest began. i wouldn't bother to enter if I knew it could take forever to judge! I really think these should be new WI rules. I searched for contest rules but couldn't find any. Does anyone know where they are????
I agree. I wish they had to have a start and end date listed on their contest title line. Or if they are going to do when they have enough entries, they also need to post how many entries make enough.
I have entered several contests where they ended and I pm'd the person just to see who won and I never got a response. I never saw anything posted on the winners thread. I honestly think some of the rules to hosting a contest on WI should be.....you have to list the start and end dates to your contest. If you start the contest you have to finish it, so you shouldn't be able to say we have to have 16 people to enter. If 1 person takes the time to enter, they should be the winner. You have to post the winner on the contest thread itself. If you enter the contest, you and the contest holder are in agreement to exchange WW userid's at the end of the contest. The contest thread will be open for 2 weeks. 1 week is for the contest and the second week is giving the contest holder and the prize winner time to exchange id's, send and receive gifts and post on WI that the gifts have been sent and received.
Those are just my opinions.
I don't think this is a gossip thread. I think it's an informative thread, however, to make sure your WI account doesn't get closed, I would check with Jason to make sure. Maybe even asked him if you can attach this to his scammers thread or start this thread parallel to his scammers thread. Just a thought.
And thank you for all the advice. I will look through my notes. I want to notify WI of the contests I have entered and have not seen any postings for any winners. Even if I did not win, it would not be fair to those who did enter the contest and would have won to not receive their prize. And they may not know the rules of receiving their prizes or may not have seen this helpful thread.

Another thing to keep in mind, is that Webkinz is for kids. So a lot of users here are also kids. Some of them are young enough to still need mom and dads permission to add new friends. So if someone wins a contest, you have to make sure you give them your userid, so they can let their parents know, hey I won a contest and need to add this person, so that I can receive my prize.

That has never happened to me, but do you ever do a poll or answer something not a contest and not get anything? I've had someone (forget who) tell me that I could pick ANYTHING from the W shop because I suggested name for a pet. We were PM'ing eachother, that person never replied, and I never got it. Hopefully the bad traders will realize their wrongs and stop hosting contests if they won't send the prizes :]
