Booo to them for keeping it at all. My honest opinion. Boo to them.
I encourage all who disagree with them keeping this feature to visit this thread:

and send them your opinion. I agree, if they actually asked all of OUR opinions I the first place this would NEVER had been re-instated.

First, Justin, thank you so much for getting some real info for us! It's nice to know they're doing something about these issues!

Second, I appreciate that the Creative Director thinks the dropping HHH will make our Webbies seem more "alive," but I have to respectfully disagree that this particular aspect is necessary to the spirit of Webkinz World. For one thing, if I wanted 15 exotic pets clamoring for food and attention all the time, I would have real live ones. Webkinz is my happy place, and I don't want to have to worry about it. I don't like things I have to worry about, and I certainly won't spend money on them for fun. As for the kids for whom the site was designed, like Cookie Monster says, Webkinz should be a sometimes treat. As many others have pointed out, the site should be a toy they can pick up and play with and then put away and come back to as if they never left, like other favorite toys.

I was going to suggest that if they want Webkinz to seem more alive, then our webbies should be able to go to the fancy kitchens we provide for them and feed themselves while we're gone, but then I realized we'd come back and all our birthday cakes and winterfest foods and other irreplaceable items would have been eaten, so scratch that.

Anyway, thanks again!

Justin, thank you so much for contacting the Creative Director. I agree with everyone else, I don't want the HHH feature at all, but I truly appreciate you taking the time to contact them on WI's behalf.

Thanks again!

Thank goodness! We have over 200 pets on one account. We have about 70 on another. How large is "large"?
I am also unhappy about not being able to adopt more pets. I have had the POTM for a week now and haven't adopted her yet. We've been missing out on all the "extras" for POTM owners, like the extra spins and coupons that were offered over the weekend. Unfair!!

That is what I'm wondering too.. how large is large... We have a wide range, one account 90 something, one 51, and the other accounts with between 10-20 some..

I hope that they consider large like 20 or so...

I'm hoping for around 20, as well. But I'm worried about that because they've taken away the 50 pet badge, because they don't want to encourage larger sizes. So I have to wonder if 50 will be considered the large size. Still a lot of unanswered questions, despite it all.

How big is large?

How do we go about getting our pets restored since much of the outrage was the time and money it would take to restore?

Is it safe now to restore?

What will the overall time obligation be per week?

I'm so bad, I'm happy for what little we know, but I want to know more, more, more! I still think it's stupid to do this at all. I have real pets at home, I have real kids at home. I wanted to be able to relax with WW and forget all the stress. Once it's reactivated, (and will they tell us??), how much are we going to have to be on to counteract this lovely feature?

BTW Justin, please do not think from my previous messages in this thread that I do not appreciate your bringing this news to us and having contact with Ganz. My appreciation to you does not mean that I agree with what they are saying right now though.
