Default Unanswered: webkinz News Error Sorry too many login attempts

I Need Help!!!! Fpr over a month now I have been unable to play any news contests for prizes, clicks, floats, or searching. I have 9 accounts which I was able to do up til a month ago buit now I constantly get the "Sorry too many login attempts" and have lost numerous prizes. Spearking to webkinz customer service rep, she was able to do from her end on her computer with my info and then she spoke to support tech. They said that it has nothing to do with them and could not help me, stating it is with a program I have on my computer. They also stated I was the only one that was experiencing this issue and did not have any suggestion how to fix. I asked who would program the error message into the news site and she could not answer that either. Upon searching, i typed in Webkinz news error sorry too many login attempts and it was documented that members of Webkinz insider last year had the exact same problem. I read the 501 posts from last year and webkinz had to take the site down for maintenance to correct the spring celebration and news egg floats so I am wondering if any one has any suggestions to help fix the situation this year or if others are experiencing the same problem. FIA posted the first thread regarding this problem last year April 18,2011 and many experienced these error so I am baffled how a customer service rep would tell me I was the only one. I have cleared my cashe at least 100 times, closed all programs and rebooted, tried daily to see if it had been corrected but no luck, ran every scan on all programs to see if there were errors on any of the programs. If any one is experiencing same problem, or can suggest something to try, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanking you in advance, gab

Hey there Gab. I was having the same problem lately. I only get it on the Parent section. I use Google Chrome. When I do get this message I clear the browsing history and exit out of Chrome. Usually when I go back in and try again it works. Hope this helps.

Hi gab224466,
I am sorry you are experiencing this

I have had this happen to me once. It was when I installed an update to FireFox. My DS actually figured out the timing of all of it and I had to completely uninstall Firefox and start all over again.
It was rather painful, but worked on my laptop.

Have you installed any updates/"new" versions to any server(s)?
Have you downloaded any new hardware that may not be compatible with the contests?

I hope you get it resolved soon

if you are talking about getting an error message on the white page in the NEWZ contests, when this happens to me I just hit the back arrow and/or wait a bit. yeh i believe that is a webkinz programming error.


also, you can try loading Webkinz and Newz from your browser's HISTORY function back to a date when it was working properly. good lck

Are you having that problem logging into your Ganzworld account? if that is your problem you don't need to be logged in to do any of the floaty clicky things.

What browser are you using (ie, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera, etc)?

Does your machine accept automatic updates for it?
If so, do you know when the last update occurred?
Sometimes something will blip out of sequence, and it is easier to uninstall an update,
then reinstall it, rather than trying to pinpoint what happened.

Another option is to try one of the other browsers.

Many of us use multiple browsers.

I would suggest Opera for WKN/Parents Club.
It is one of the oldest browsers out there (it is Norwegian company), and installs very easily
and quickly. They did a major upgrade a little while ago, and I have been using it exclusively
for WKN since I tested it over a month ago. You get it from Opera.com .
(I actually have all 5 loaded on our computers, and use different ones for different things.
I usually have 2 or 3 open at a time for our multiple WW accounts.)

Good luck.

Hi there, Have you tried a different browser? Otherwise, it might be because loads of people are rushing to log in at the same time or Webkinz is simply very busy. I've had this problem before too.

It may matter what Browser your using, and have you tried clearing cookies?

Default Re: webkinz News Error Sorry too many login attempts

Today I spent most of the day uninstalling firefox and google chrome and then tried to re install with much difficulty. I have two adobe installs now, one that works the webkinz accounts for firefox and chrome, and another suggested opera browser, which I have added to the list of browsers. My accounts are working on all the four browsers, I have cleared my cache at least 10 times today, so I have no idea how to find a browsing history when the news last worked. So I uninstalled all the 7 updates for March 14th, hoping it would not mess up the webkinz accounts . Eagerly, I went to the news, and using my new Opera browser, the first thing I tried which was a floatin PJ collie head, disappontedly got the same error message. Sorry too many login attempts. another wasted day. trying to correct a problem I truley believe is a webkinz programming issue. I guess I should be happy that the webkinz accounts work and forget about the news site, somethings is not compatible with IE9 program and the new news contests. I will be open to any other suggestion and hopefully one day I will be able to do the news contests, and parent opnes as well. Everthing was working just perfect til the adventure park clothes give away prizes for the day we were supposed to get the pink bottoms to deep sea costume. Can not find the actual date but if I could maybe thAT would help fix this error message. I think it was around a maintenance shutdown. ThANks again, gab
