Default Answered: What's Good About Mutiple Accounts?

I would be very happy if someone could answer these questions for my sister. You see, my sister just bought a Webkinz code on eBay.com, and was thinking about making another user. I thought I might make a post on here and ask about why should she have multiple accounts. She asked about Asian Accounts. Here are the questions she has been asking even since the auction ended and she won: ( she's driving me a little nuts)
1. What is the benefit of an extra account?
2. What is the benefit of an Asian Account while in America?
3. If she get an Asian Account, will the account be in an Asian language?
4. Will there be any difference from the American accounts?
5. How much farther in time is Asia than America?
6. What all can she get extra, that she can't get in her normal account?


Thank you for reading this. Really... thank you. My sister just can't stop asking questions about this stuff.
Thanks-
3gypsies

1. What is the benefit of an extra account?

I have 7 accounts one main and 6 others. One account I use for storage only. No one has ever been given the account name and I don't accpet friend requests etc. This was my safety account for some expensive items.

My biggest benefit was for the click to win events. I line up all my screens in a row and click away. It's how I get hundreds of items in the click to win fests.

Another bonus is that you can have 5 accounts in a family deluxe account. This means extra goodies once a month.

Extra dailies.

2. What is the benefit of an Asian Account while in America?


Simply the time zone. It's great if you're busy and can't make a rare on your American time zone. I set up Asian accounts when there used to be different rares on different time zones but this has since changed.
3. If she get an Asian Account, will the account be in an Asian language?

NO I have 2 and they are english

4. Will there be any difference from the American accounts?
Sometimes during the maintenance days you will get the ability to get a rare item that may change after the update.
5. How much farther in time is Asia than America?
. Right now it's 3:30 pm in american and 5:30 am in asian. Although if she was to get a second i recommend the european time zone which is 5 hours later.


6. What all can she get extra, that she can't get in her normal account?
Hmm like I noted earlier it's just a chance at other dailies, holiday gifts, extra deluxe gifts if you have it. Click to win extras.

I just have to note that I got all these extra accounts with webbies that I got at walgreens for 1.24 each. They had a blowout sale and I bought a ton to start extras and keep them open.

The only reason I know that members have more than 1 is to get the dailies more, and get more items for trading. Sorry I can;t answer the rest of the questions

Default Re: What's Good About Mutiple Accounts?

I've made about 5 different accounts, and they all expired.
Its a huge hassle to remember all the passwords and usernames, so i do not suggest to make a different account. But that's my opinion.
I lost a LOT of webkinz from doing this. So its not a good idea...

Default Re: What's Good About Mutiple Accounts?

my experience with the language question is unless you set another language in the menu page-it will come up in english. I opened accounts in asia and europe and I find the time difference works best for my euro account as it is only about 6 hours off. most of the early evening events happen in the middle of the night in the asia account so I don't catch them much. It is nice that I have another opportunity to catch an hourly event that I would have missed on my regular account because I was out. this is also true with collecting rares. Hope this helps with some of your questions. good luck

oh-and if you have a deluxe account you can keep the accounts up easier without watching for adoptions. It does get interesting trying to keep up sometimes when I am helping other family members too.

There are many advantages in having an account in each time zone, I recommend it. They will all be in English, everything will be the same. At Christmas, Easter, Halloween, etc, you will get an extra gift bag. That makes a big difference! Then if you want to do a certain activity, you get an extra chance at a different time. Same for purchasing a rare, not only can you buy one in each account, but the times might suit your schedule better.

Maintenance in North American accounts lasts about 2 hours (at 2am EST) but only a couple of minutes for Europe and Asia.

And of course you get to play Jumbleberry Fields more often!

1. What is the benefit of an extra account?
Extra daily activies, gift bags and rares. If she trades on WI, it's nice to have an extra account to use.
2. What is the benefit of an Asian Account while in America?
The ability to catch rares at a time when you might not be able to on your American account
3. If she get an Asian Account, will the account be in an Asian language?
Nope, it will be in English
4. Will there be any difference from the American accounts?
None at all except the time zone
5. How much farther in time is Asia than America?
I believe it's a day +a few hours
6. What all can she get extra, that she can't get in her normal account?
The same as #1

I would recommend opening another account in Euro time - it's not too far ahead of USA. I find most Asian rares happen while I'm sleeping. I have 2 more accounts, each with only 1 pet on them in case I choose to let them expire. I love getting extra gifts and daily activities. It's nice to be able to purchase more than 1 rare at a time, too. This includes PJ's outlet clothes - one can never have too many fairy dresses!

At this time of year, there's 14 hours difference; after spring time change the difference will be 13 hours. The Asian accounts are set for Japanese time, while the NA accounts are set on Eastern Standard Time. It easiest for me to remember by thinking first of the 12 hour difference then adding or subtracting the 2 hours, depending on which time I'm starting with. For example, if there's an hourly activity listed for 4pm Asian KT, you have to think back at least to 4am (the 12 hour difference), then back two more hours to 2 am North American KT! Works easily if she's on the east coast; she'd have to adjust for more a few more hours if she lives further west. As someone mentioned, she'd probably be sleeping through most of the Asian hourlies.

Since I have one account in each of the three KT zones, I made a little chart to glance at quickly. That might help your sister.
