I agree wholeheartedly that this was a serious disappointment. We were so looking forward to this and it has been nothing but frustration. I feel that we were fooled and then disappointed. Ganz made a huge deal about the fest and then virtually left everyone hanging. You know, I wrote them an email at the end of the very first day and people suggested when I posted the email here that maybe I was overreacting. I didn't think so. After all, the first day was bad and didn't bode well for how things would go over the duration. Unfortunately, in the time we have been part of WW, this has become the norm rather then the exception. I don't totally know what we can do regarding these experiences. We joined just before the Christmas debacle and despite our feelings and the endless problems and despite writing more then once to Ganz, nothing has changed. My feeling at this point is that they will only pay attention when it impacts their bottom line. In that vein, we will no longer give them our money until such time as it appears that they are showing their customer base enough respect to have a site that functions properly; to listen to what we have to say; to not treat people poorly when customer service is contacted; and, generally, to make a site that lives up to the implied promises. I am very tired of the whole thing.

Other than Wed. night (after midnight), I only got 3 or 4 leaves. And almost everything I got was Pumpkin Soup or Apple Cider. I didn't get any of the new items.

This is my first year on WW and my first holiday was summer fest, you can imagine my disappointment there! So I couldn't wait for fall fest hoping for great things, and was bummed once again! I just pray they don't screw up my hopes and dreams for Halloween! It is the only thing I have been wanting since I started webkinz! I will be so devastated if they give out a placemat or the same items as in the past! It would cure my addiction though! I would definitely quit!

I personally cant see why everyone is complaining so much....Ganz never promised that everyone would get 100 leaves a day. Sure it's fun to get leaf after leaf like the 1st night and morning but why does anyone need so much stuff. Most people would just sell the items back to the WShop or just trade them. In the first 12 hours of the Fall fest I probably got 50-60 leaves and now get one every 2-3 hours.

People are only mad because of the high number of leaves they sent out to start the Fall Fest. If I remember correctly the last Winterfest was the same...lots of snowflakes at the beginning and then they tapered off to 1 every couple of hours.

From now on with every "Fest" I will just plan to be online during the first 12 hours or so.

Not true at all. I would have been more than happy w/ 2 or 3 of the new items. I find it very frustrating that w/ all the leaves I got (not even 10 in total for the week), all were items from last year, which I already had.

I'm frustrated too!! I haven't seen a leaf since the first day it started. So much for "shaking the trees"! Ah well. Life is still good.

Yup..this was a total bust! I think I got 3 leaves in the last 4 days. Maybe they did it on purpose. I can just picture the front page of the news on Friday....

Announcing Fall Fest Fridays at the E store!! Great news boys and girls....All the items you didn't catch (through no fault of our own of course) during the fall festival can now be purchased in the E store for the low low price of $12.00
