Hmmm, makes sense. There are many websites with a lot of traffick like neopets and gaia and the like, and typically they don't have downtown EVERY nite ... just seems a lil excessive to me in my opinion. =)

Thanks for your info! I appreciate it!


Ooops, I mean downTIME* not downtown. Lol!

I think it's because webkinz world is such a massive site, it needs a whole lot of maintenance. Almost everyday there's change of some sort, so they need time to do that, also they need to fix glitches and stuff (:

Maybe those sites don't have regular updates as often as WW? Just a guess...

No problem

Lol xD

I guess having regular maintenance at nighttime so they can do all of their new uploads and fix glitches and introduce new fun activities is better then them taking the site offline for HOURS once a week or so and leaving us stranded with out WW.

This way they have that block of time to do the maintenance that they need each night and we wake up to new surprises every day!

They probably don't, but as for what I've heard, webkinz has more to it so it needs to fix glitches and make updates the most often.

They say it's for maintenance, but I think it's so the Ganz employees can get a good night's sleep... (do I sound mean? lol)

The purpose in going off is to reset the rares and the daily activities. Other wise you have situations where the Wheel of Wow and the Gem Hunt say that they have already been played. Also, they have pages that are put up sometimes twice in a week or more often, depending on the occasion.
When I first joined Webkinz World, there were NO other countries included so it maintenance lasted from about 2 am until 6am (I am thinking).
We used to get the notice that the site was down and we just accepted it for what it was.
Now that there are different time zones (Euro and Asian) the maintenance does not last nearly so long.
