Same happened to me on my main account. It gets annoying, doesn't it? You have to constantly be tipping him and purchasing his items in order to maintain that level, or else you'll move down.

I belive you have to keep giving him money. It might be a glitch to ask ganz about.

I don't really think he's a mobster, you know how most virtual worlds are like, you have to earn things, well, usually. So if you earn kinzcash, tip Arte, then you will eventually earn the time of when a rare item is put up.

I made it to the top level and was there forever, I have taken a break from Webkinz and now I am back and he bumped me down a level. So you have to tip/buy from time to time to stay there.

Arte tells me when the rare is on one account and I never tipped him. I just bought things from him periodically and he finally started giving me the time of the next rare.

I never tip him, but I go there a lot and he promoted me. Sometimes, I'll click on the tip jar, and then not tip him, but I wouldn't recommend that.

Hmm. My understanding was, once you achieved the top level, you stayed there. I haven't bought anything in a long time, and I still have Arte telling me what time the rare is coming in. Is this possibly a glitch?

I think this is a glitch. I know people who haven't bought anything or tipped him in a while & there still at the top level. I'm not even close to the top level, I don't really go to arte.

Default Re: Help! Arte is ripping me off!

Here is a good explanation about the different "levels" you can be with Arte: Curio Shop Levels - curioshop. Basically, the more you buy from him and/or tip him, the friendlier he gets, and the more info he gives you about when sales and rares will be in. However, with the new Deluxe options added, if you don't have Deluxe it's rather messed up as Doug will tell you regular and deluxe, even if you don't have deluxe.

Hi everyone,
When a person upgrades to a deluxe account, they are able to learn from Arte what time the big sales and rares are.

This no longer works for the regular accounts. It does not matter what "level" you have. Arte lies to the regular account holders every day. Ganz was notified about this programming problem months ago.

My suggestion is to not tip Arte.

If you want to know the rare and sale times go to the wonderful thread on Webkinz Insider. The first two posts have Asian and American/European account information. It is much more detailed than Arte. Here it is.
