I read some posts about people accidentally naming their pet with their activation code. Then they desparately try to contact Ganz, which I heard is not easy. It is so sad to read about what they go through. I know how badly we all want to enter our pet and play with him right away.
A short time ago, Webkinz was rejecting names containing certain combinations of letters. I give a lot of thought to naming my pets, and the rejection made me once again go through the long process of finding the next perpect name. That led to my continuing practice of adopting a pet and entering a name for approval **before I even take off the tag**. That way I know the name I enter is acceptable. Now I know that has also prevented me from accidentally naming my pet with his code.
I hope this tip helps other people avoid the painful experience of having accounts hacked.
My son has put in the code for the name before (in his excitement) but he was always thrown off by the fact that the next screen tells him to enter his code... again...so he hits back and realizes he put in the code for a name. Just remember that you never have to put in your code twice.
It' never happend to me, but I'm afraid it will! Thanks for the advice! Oh, and with the strict anming policy, I don't get how they would accept the code, becaus eof this. I know there's like the little combos where if it has a certain combo of letters together, it'll deny it. Maybe GANZ should not accept wierd names like with a combination of random letters and numbers, because then people wouldn't have to worry about this.
It would also help to prevent giving the wrong name to a pet. Supposed you wanted to enter a parrot named Polly and a camel named Thirsty and put in one name and the other pet's code.... "No, the parrot doesn't want a cracker! He is Thirsty!"
Great idea! I never thought of doing that! Once I remove the tag I am always anxious to adopt the pet, because I don't want to lose it. But keeping the tag on before I know the name will work is an excellent plan! I, too, try to choose my pet names carefully, and I don't like being disappointed when my pet name won't work. Thanks, again, for a great tip!
