Unhappy Answered: HELP!!.... How do you do a Peek-A-Newz Contest?

Ok so there are a lot of peek-a-newz contests on Webkinz Newz that I would like to participate in but I can't get it to work!...... I have my page set as 90%, I logged in and signed up for the Peek-a-newz contest, allowed Webkinz Newz in my pop-ups, and I also cleared my cache. I did all that and it didn't work!

I have had no luck using IE for the peek a news contests. Ganz supposedly recommends Firefox (at least I see people posting that Ganz customer supports says use Firefox). Way back when the winged tee contest was on I switched to Firefox for the news contest and it has worked great. Never mind that Firefox has issues with sending packages, playing wishing well, hamsters etc.

As you might have guessed from this post I have found that it is best for me to use both IE and Firefox, each works best at certain tasks.

The problem with this peek a news is that it is a slow contest. I found it is taking around 30 minutes to get all 5 pop ups. Be patient.

I hope this helps.

Sometimes you also have to clear your cache to get the characters to show up.

Hmm, okay. Which browser are you using? I know my friend also has this same problem where the characters just won't show up. So it might be a browser or a flash issue. I use Firefox and have the latest version of Flash.

check and see if you have your pop up blocker on - that blocks the peekie

the peek a newz are slow to load sometimes but if you open 3-4 duplicate tabs all to WKN that helps -one tab doesn't have it the next one might

there's a thread about playing the peek a newz -can't find it right now -
btw the pages I get best results from are the kinzapedia and arcade ones - just reloading the pages and you'll find the peekie


just be patient and keep yours eyes open they come a lot on the edges -good luck

1. Clear your Cache
2. Go to the upper left hand corner where there is a Peek-a-newz ad
3. Click it
4. Fill out the form and press play
5. Look for whatever you have to find, typically on the right, left, or upper ends of the paige.
If you need anything else, let me know!

I am using Internet Explorer 8, I am not sure if I have the latest version of Flash. Is there a way to check if you have the latest version of Flash? The character just won't show up.

Thanks for answering to the thread, I done everything you told me, but still I couldn't find the character. Oh well I will figure out what is wrong soon!

The best way to check you Flash is to just download the latest version. I suggest switching to Firefox. My friend who cannot get it to work is also using IE. Good luck!

I have the latest version of Flash, I might switch to Firefox.
Does Firefox harm your computer, and when your on Webkinz does it give you a screen where you can see all of the dock?....... Also is it alright to have two browers downloaded on the computer at the same time?
