Default Unanswered: WI time zone

Just a quick question. I changed my computer time to Eastern Time so that I can enter and view the Stadium competitions. I actually live in the Central Time Zone (Texas).

Now, when I post here in the forum, I notice that the posted time show as 2 hours earlier than my computer clock shows.

What time zone is WI working in?

Maybe that's why when I look at the top of the forum pages and see that I should check in after 7 AM to see what's coming up as a rare item it never seems to be ready to view at that time. I've been checking in after 7 AM Eastern time.

Thanks,

The times at the top of the page are shown in KT ... if you hover your mouse over them to see what time curio shop items are and what time to check back it will give you the other time zones (Easter, Central and Pacific).


Did changing your computer clock change your time in WW? I thought KT wasn't affected by your computer's clock... ??

Hope that helps!

Thanks, I forgot that I can hover and see what time to watch for the rare item announcement.

I talked to Ganz a few weeks back about not being able to enter or view the stadium competitions. They called back and said that I should change my computer clock to Eastern time. When I did, it worked.

I don't know what they did wrong when programming the stadium, but it doesn't seem that the accounts are being adjusted to the Webkinz server time zone properly.

All I can say is that it works, but I don't like leaving my computer set to an hour earlier all the time. I go by that clock to leave the house in time for work. Heaven forbid that I should leave an hour early!!! I hope they get that fixed.

I just saw that on a Webkinz Stadium thread... I had no idea! (I'm also in TX Central time) I'm excited to try it out - cause I've not been able to compete (except for one random time)!

But I'm also like you and don't want to leave my computer set that way all the time... but I guess since there are really only 2 times in the evening for competitions I can just change it when I get home from work and again when I go to bed.

Thanks for the info!!

This worked for us too. We could never get into the Webkinz Stadium and then I saw in WI that you should change your computer's clock to the Eastern time zone. It worked immediately! We've not had any trouble since. Good luck and enjoy the stadium!

Quick ? -- does changing your computer to Eastern time only effect the Stadium? Not sure what else it would effect, but thought I'd ask! Thanks!!

Nothing that I have found. I suppose it could affect the time stamp on email or word documents if they are tied into the computer's clock. However, I've been using two different computers with the clocks changed and all of my programs have worked. Good luck!

One other quick tip. On one computer, we had to restart the computer to get everything to work after we changed the computer's time zone. On the other computer, we just logged out of WW and logged back in after changing the computer time zone and it immediately worked.

The WI time zone is earstern time & Kinz Time.
The computer time haves NOTHING to do with WW time.
Hope this helped!

I have never been able to view or enter competitions either. I will have to try the time change on my computer. Is Ganz planning on fixing that? I really don't want to have my computer set on the wrong time all of the time.

It's funny, but I found I could choose Eastern time zone when setting the clock, but then change my clock back to the correct time and everything worked and I could get into the stadium!
