Default Unanswered: WW Warning flashing after I log off

On a bunch of my accounts I get a flashing error message after I log off. It only flashes for a split second and it has taken me dozens of times logging off before I was able to capture it in a screen shot. It says "It has been determined that your username is not appropriate. You will not be allowed to pay in Webkinz World until you change your username. Please enter a new username in the box and click "OK." ... Well, there is nothing wrong with my usernames except for some of them contain real first names (e.g. kim). ... and if they are going to make me change my usernames, then they should let the screen for changing it remain up until I actually change my username(s) (the screen only flashes and if I blink, then I miss it.....there is no time to enter a new username).

Is anyone else getting this error? Is this something I should worry about?

So far not yet... it could be one of those crazy glitches or it could be the real thing. For now, I'd just make a similar username to the one you have now.

I'd wait a day and see if you still get the messages. They did so much maintenance today that I would not want to make any big changes to my account like a new name yet!

If it is still there tomorrow, then your user name might fall under some of their new restrictions!
Not really sure, so hopefully, someone else will come along who knows more about this to help you...

There is no way for me to make a similar username at this time. The screen to change it doesn't stay up long enough for me to enter anything--it disappears in a split second. I don't think there is a way to change it without contacting Ganz customer service (and even then, I will probably only get a form letter back). I hope it is a glitch. I don't see anything wrong with a first name in a username. Nobody can "identify" me by only a first name.

Never had that happen,or even heard of that happening. I would wait though,and before you do anything give them a call. Hope it gets fixed for you soon.

Oh... it doesn't stay up like that? If you can still log in and log out okay, just ignore it. Otherwise I think you should wait a day, like KittyFanatic suggested.

I'm getting the same thing on my two accounts, my husbands two accounts and all the kids accounts. I think it's yet another glitch. I'd just ignore it unless it stays up.

I'd call GANZ customer support. Tell them about the problem--and they can't just give you a form letter. Tell them that you are only concerned about it, and that you would appreciate it if they could either take it off, or leave it up long enough to change. Oh dear...I hope they don't go around deeming usernames innapropriate--m00sep00p could be really attacked! Yikes!

Thank you for all the responses.

I can still log off and back on. I am hoping I will still be able to tomorrow. Who knows what they will do after their nightly maintenance. Let's hope it is just a glitch, because if it is not then they will probably have thousands of calls about it!
