What about Ganz's egocentric notion that the entire Webkinz Universe resides in upstate NY or one of its several time zone counterparts? It makes no sense to limit one coast and leave things wide open for another coast, such as in Hawaii, where Hourly Activities begin at about 11AM, and the site shuts down for them nightly at about 7PM or sooner! How must that stink for the little Hawaiian boys and girls who have to scarf down dinner at 6PM to get into the site before it shuts down for its nightly 3-5 hour nap?
As someone who works in web development, I'm finding it frustrating that they cannot just go ahead and run the site 24/7 like every other site out there. It CAN certainly be done...just look at eBay.
The fact remains that this site is NOT a money maker for them, since the money's already spent and in their pocket by the time you site down in front of your PC for the first time. So they keep the site up, keep it functional, but they are possibly unaware of a secret sect of adults who are huge fans. I think I will start a new thread about that...
I'm just happy to b able to recommend it to my computer-illiterate friends who were afraid to let their kids get on but didn't have the knowledge to look into it first.
I just wish it was more fair, maybe if they thought it through a little to see that only a fraction of Webkinz account holders are on Eastern time, that's all.
