Default Unanswered: How Do You Have Two Different Accounts?

My question is not what you think. How do you have an American account and an Asian account? Or and Asian and a European? I can't understand!

Default Re: How Do You Have Two Different Accounts?

When you adopt a new pet, instead of logging into your account and going to Ms. Birdy, you create a new account from the main Webkinz screen. One of the questions you have to answer is where are you located. For an Asian or European account you just fib and tell them you live in Tokyo or Paris or wherever. Webkinz then creates a new account for that pet with the appropriate time zone for the non-North American location you indicated. Does that make sense?

Yes. But if my time zone is Western, then how come KinzTime is always Eastern? Is that just because they are American?

basically webkinz is divided into only 3 times zones-Asian & European & Eastern
so all North America is eastern even though there is 6 or 7 time zones there
Just like Asia is all 1 zone but I think they actually are spread over 10 time zones

Right. For any location in North America, Webkinz is going to assign a regular North American account, and there are no separate time zones within that -- Kinz time equals Eastern time. It can be a drag, but there's no getting around it! Asia and Europe, of course, have many time zones in many different countries, but there is only one Asian Kinz time and only one European Kinz time. (I am guessing they go with Tokyo and London, but I could be mistaken.)

Webkinz World has a new "time zone" feature. You create two accounts and then pick different time zones for them.

Default Re: How Do You Have Two Different Accounts?

You have to create an entire new account on WW, including new user name ect. and adopt a new pet onto it
When you get to the part of what time zone you're in, you select a country that is in either the American, European, or Asian time

I enjoy having a European and Asian account in addition to my American account so can have more opportunities to purchase rare items. Asian accounts often have harder to find rare items, that is, if a new rare item comes out Asian accounts usually are the first to show them.

Also, since Asia is a 12+ hours ahead of us, you can often celebrate events earlier, such as the Zingoz Celebration. So if it is Thursday 9:00 pm Eastern time in America, it is 9:00 a.m Friday in the Asian account....

There are a lot of other benefits for the Asian account that people have noticed, but not necessarily confirmed through Ganz. Some people find they get better gifts when they open their adoption boxes, for example.

If you search I am sure there is a thread somewhere about Asian accounts.

Have fun if you decide to do it...

European accounts are 5 hours ahead and Asian accounts are 14 hours ahead for Daily Activities and Artie's Curio Shop. I believe most other things like PJ special offerings and the Communal Contest are not affected but time zone and happen at the same time for everyone.

If you are trying to collect certain Rares it can be nice to have accounts in other time zones if the rares in your zone come up when you can't collect them. Of course the trade off is that unless you are up 24 hours a day you can't do everything. It used to be that the Asian accounts got different rares than the others but now everyone get the same ones each day (except on maintenance days)
