Honestly, the only way to prove them wrong it is to swear off webkinz. Stop buying, stop playing. Walk away. Until we do that, they'll keep up these kinds of antics.

I agree with other posters who say they've done this to stop the eBay sales.

Frankly, that just makes me want to go on eBay and put up for sale all of my rare items at once - flood the market. Drop the price so that the perceived value of the rares drops, so that people won't CARE they can only get one.

Take that Ganz. Monopolists can only exist for a short time before they start abusing their customers.
You're right. There is no reason for them to make these changes unless it somehow puts more money in their pockets... which it just might. We'll have to spend more time searching and waiting for those rare items. We'll have to play more, buy more webkinz, make more accounts, etc. And they know we'll keep coming no matter what changes they make.

Why don't they stop worrying about us knowing what's going to be the Curio Shop in advance and start worrying about fixing their dictionary filter so we can start naming our rooms again!!!

Because that involves

a) caring that the website actually works, since apparently people will use it anyway, and
b) not spending (apparently) every waking moment scheming ways to part us from our money.

I can forgive alot. Ganz is about a millimeter short of the line where I say "enough is enough" and sell every rare and CSO I have on ebay, and walking away.

I have been entertaining thoughts of going to the Kookeys site. Justin and Wendy are both there already, and they have created the Virtual Pet Insider (sister site to this one) and it looks like a person STRAIGHT from 10Vox staff is one of the Members on that site. If Ganz had one of them here, they would understand our needs as consumers so much more. I agree with you, The Blue eyz, they are a millimeter short of my Bottom line, too.
If it wasn't for Wendy and Justin on this site and the MANY awesome moderators and excellent staff, I would have abandoned Webkinz long ago. With all their little insider tricks, it was easy to navigate and be patient, but now they have taken a crucial part of that away from us.

Angry Re: BREAKING NEWS: Ancient Civilization Theme Gifts, One Rare Limit!

I don't understand the limit on rares, either. It's not like it costs Ganz anything in real life. I've often bought two of the same rare item at once, so I could give one as a gift. Bummer!

I'm also really bummed about not being able to find out what the rares are ahead of time. I can't just stay logged on all day long and keep checking.

I'm really shocked that they've suddenly decided to be tight lipped about the Curio Shop and limit us in such a drastic way. There's no need for them to limit the number we buy, especially when certain items only show up once every six months or so! Why don't they spend time expanding the online vocabulary so that we can actually name our rooms creatively instead of messing with something that was fine already??

cheychey45 is an unknown quantity at this point

Default Re: BREAKING NEWS: Ancient Civilization Theme Gifts, One Rare Limit!

it really is going to be tough getting rare items because as someone else pointed out, many of us parents log on in the day from work briefly to get a rare item but most of us log on quickly and log because we are at work so knowing the time helps a great deal.
