How to become a Mod? This is a really frequently asked question. Just be super helpful and nice .They will come to you .Remember; don’t post asking to be one. Also, remember you don’t have to be a mod /forum protector to be super helpful, you can still have a ton of fun and help lots of people!
How do I modify my posts: First, you must be gifted. See below on how to become gifted. Then you must scroll down to the bottom of the post/thread that you wish to edit. Once you are there, you will see a modify button in the lower right handcorner. All you have to click it and Bam! You can edit it
How do I become gifted:
First, you must have been a member for at least 2 weeks. You also must have 50 helpful posts. These can not be fluff posts. They will be reviewed by a moderator, so make sure they are good! If you are accepted into the gift exchange you will receive a pm. Then you will have access! This can take up to about 2 days, so be patient
---What is a fluff post?: They are meaningless posts that are unnecessary. --Ex: Hi! I like Webkinz! I like pie! Your Funny! Hihihihihhihihihihi

As we all know, all websites have glitches. Many that occur on Webkinz have to do with missing items, and/or kinzcash. Here are some common problems that many people have:
Skating/Gliding: We do not know why, but many people have found that instead of walking around like normal pets, some of their Webkinz are “gliding” as if they have skates on, or are on a skateboard. When you put them in bed, in a chair, or on a couch, the stand on it instead of laying down. They do sleep in the beds, but they do it standing up. Along with this glitch, many people find that they can not see some of their Webkinz. When they select them however and make them move, they will suddenly appear.
Disappearing items: Many people have found that as they go to the WShop to see how much something sells for, or drags their items form their dock to their room, it disappears. This is a glitch that Ganz is well aware of and is working to fix. In the meantime, they ask that we try to keep our docks with under 100 items.
Stolen Items: If you believe that someone has hacked into your account, we have a solution! You have two options that we recommend: 1. Send each person on your phone a small item, such as a bottle of water. Since you can only send one item a day to the person, whomever it was that took your items, you will not be able to send a gift to. Wedo not recommend this though if you have a large buddy list, because each item that you send has a 15kc shipping cost and it may run down your kc 2. Call Ganz! Ganz is able to track who gifts are sent to. However, they only have this information for a certain amount of time after the gift is sent, so call as soon as you find out something is missing!
With all of these glitches we recommend the same thing: First log back in and log on. Then try restarting your computer and clearing your cache. If none of this works, we would suggest contacting Ganz. We recommend first checking with a parent to make sure it is okay with them if you are thinking of calling. Here is their contact information and some other things regarding it:
They are open from 9am to 5pm EST on weekdays
This number is very successful and has proved useful for all that I know : Ganz Direct Phone Number: 1-905-WEB - Kinz - (1-905-932-5469)- When you hear the voice press 0 to be directed to an operator. Tell them that you would like to talk to someone about your Webkinz account. They will connect you to someone who will probably be able to help you. I haven't ever used this, but I know several people who have used it successfully
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org - This normally takes about 2 days until you get a response...I have used this a couple of times, but it has never proved useful
