Well, I kinda figured this was going to happen today because of the new newspaper article and picture. When you click on the "My Page" button to see the new options that the newspaper talked about it just said they were making improvements and to check back to see the new options later. My guess is that they are loading the new options. (And hopefully changing the Wheel of Wow!) I thought "My Page" was boring but I am kind of excited to see the new features. I want to show off my rooms to my friends (and get ideas for new rooms to create from other peoples pictures.)
I really wish that they would do maintenance at night (after the regularly scheduled maintenance.) I know many other sites that are updated in the wee hours of the morning and I don't know why Ganz can't do this too. Is it really that hard to find IT people that will work at night? Or do they just not care that they repeatedly annoy and disappoint their customers. My kids are on a 2 day break from school right now and they were all excited to use Kinz Chat Plus for the first time because they can't use it during the week due to the time zone difference, by the time they get home from school it is closed for the day and it is not open on the weekends. They were so disappointed that WW was down today. How do you explain "maintenance" to two young children when they are so disappointed and frustrated. Pretty much impossible. I heard my 3rd grader say to my 2nd grader when they left my office, "Webkinz stinks!" Normally, I would have gotten after her a little bit for her negative attitude but hey, it IS pretty stinky that they knew they were going to be down for maintenance and did not tell it's customers. Last I knew it was common courtesy to keep your customers informed when you were going to change your hours of business.
I completely agree with you, Serinasong, my son has given up on Webkinz lately. How sad Now he hangs out on Club Penguin, I've never seen that site go down... and it's free! (well, you can buy membership, but it's just as fun without) Myself, on the other hand, am still holding out hope that WW will get better... eventually. Although, I have to say, that since I got a new laptop it's been much, much better! I had no idea that my old computer had so much to do with most of my WW problems (the dreaded "Please wait" every two minutes!) Oddly enough, my old computer was good with the rest of the web, though.
