Unhappy Re: BREAKING NEWS: New Winterfest Prize & Possible Timing Update

O.K. we tried an experiment and depending which ISP you use the timing is different. Internet Explorer is the 11/12 minute timing and firefox is 6 minute timing. however after 2 flakes It doesnot matter what your on because it will basically just stop. my account I have none since PM Est & my mom gets hers on the 6 min Asian account & my sister just got 1 peppermint snowflake thats it now.

my Friend got one rug but when I looked at it in her room all the items that were on it, are under it or gone now. I would not be surprised if they take them away.

Big Question...can you get them while playing games? When I sit in my yard I get them every 6 to 11 minutes, not the same I've been watching. However, if I get bored and go play a game, nothing shows up on several different games. Can you only get them if you are in your house? This also makes me wonder if some people are missing them because they are logged in, but playing games.
Maybe you can see them on some games and not others? I don't want to just sit in a room for hours for a candy or Egg Nog...the rug maybe?
So, are you seeing them during games?

I almost gave up since 5:30 am this morning, Pacific Time! There was no 6 - 11 intervals and the servers were slow...I stayed with until 2PM. Very disappointing.....I'm out in my Backyard or Room most of the time. I missed 5 snowflakes in half a day...I really tried to capture and click on them,
but they were too quick for me!!! So, at least, I got a rug, the food items, and blue knit torques and 3 Parkas. I have not received that cute, new jacket with the wrap (a good friend of mine sent me one, out of the greatness of her huge heart! **). Hey, we have 5 more days to keep trying, right? I hope they speed up the process at some point.

I wonder if Ganz is "playing with us" at times ??????

That's scary. Keep us posted please.

Mine stopped after two flakes, too, both this morning & this evening (couldn't get on, as usual, in the afternoon). I didn't count the time lapse this morning but tonight it was 8 minutes between snowflakes & then zilch. So far we have 1 thing of chestnuts, 1 egg nog & 2 peppermint flakes...whoopee! I get so mad at myself for being an optimist & so gullible. I was debating starting a new account with another time zone than North American but after reading so many posts & our usual experiences with , I don't think it's worth the time anymore. Oh, well. Good Luck to you & everyone else.

When you think you've got a pattern it changes... I have been on almost all day and tried to chart it, been fairly lucky for a while and then nothing... so far I've got one cookie, 3 eggnogs, 2 chestnuts, 4 hot chocolates, 2 snowflakes, 3 parkas, 3 wool jackets, one tree, and a rug.
I only wrote down the minutes not the hours so my cycle was... 18, 24, 30, 36, 16, 22, 28, 34, 40, 08, 21, 32 and then I had to cook dinner. There was times I know I missed flakes, for I did have to stop and eat, tend to the baby and pick up my son from school. Ohhh, just got another hot chocolate.... but have been waiting over a half hour for that one. Good Luck to everyone...hope to see more people get some prizes too! Try just sitting in your room, seems to work best I find and once a flake falls, set your timer for 5 minutes and wait if another one does fall you are good for at a couple more on the 6 minute schedule but when that stops you'll be waiting awhile for the next one.

If you go and answer Quizzy's questions, you may get a flake but your clock will reset back, and the program will think that you have already had your flakes, so that you won't get more. You won't get any in the Arcade or Tournaments, or on your daily activities.
i must be lucky because i do get them sometimes while doing my daily act.
also buying a jigsaw puzzle and taking it to your room is very helpful, usually while working it you get quite a bit of those snowflakes passing buy! good luck to all and thanks for the info!

No, you need to be able to see your dock & you can not see your dock if you are playing a game in the arcade.

Opps , never mind that question. I hadn't read all of your helpful post yet. Will try waiting with a game - didn't know puzzles were available. Also, my daughter got a flake while her webbie was playing in the tub!
