I only have one computer and if I open up more than 1 account the snowflakes seem to disappear. I have sat and watched one account for over an hour and got nothing. I had 2 accounts open and one would started out 6 minutes and then went to IDK.....

It must be rug day. I finally got ONE.... on one of my accounts. This does get boring after awhile.

Does it have to do with where we live like most of the things they do now ? I live in south east US, & use IE7

DOES ANYONE KNOW?

if you get them every 6 min where about do you live ?
Please, no addresses - just state/time zone and if you are using IE or firefox? thanks for the help trying to narrow down the problem for Ganz since they can't seem to.
I live in Illinois and have been doing my own little experiment. I have watched my computer screen with 4 windows open for two seperate sessions and have major differences in all 4 accounts. Here are the times I have been getting:

Logged in at 2pm KT and logged out at 3:30pm KT and the results were:

acct 1 - 2:29 (first flake) and 2:47 (last flake) NOTHING else for the entire 1 1/2 hrs.

acct 2 - 2:22, 2:34, 2:40, 2:46, 3:04

acct 3 - 2:22 (could NOT click on flake), 2:38, 2:57

acct 4 - 2:41 (first flake!!), 2:59, 3:05

So between 3:05 and 3:30, no accounts had any flakes show up.

Session 2 logged in at 4:34pm KT and logged out at 7:00pm KT and the results were:

acct 1 - 4:53, 5:05, 5:11, 5:23, 5:29, NOTHING until 6:19, 6:31, 6:37, 6:49 and 7:01

acct 2 - 4:59, 5:17, 5:55, 6:30, 6:42, 7:00

acct 3 - 5:10, 6:34 only TWO flakes in 2 1/2 hours (my son was NOT happy)

acct 4 - 4:46, 5:04, 5:10, 5:22, 5:34, 5:46, 5:58, 6:18, 6:24, 6:29, 6:48, 6:54 the nothing for 36 minutes

So, as you can see it is totally random. I was using IE for all windows and was pretty much doing the same things in each account. I moved from room to room, stared at the employment office for a while, read every letter on the news page and so on. If I did something on one account, I did it on all. I tried to keep everything equal.

So I guess some people are just luckier than others. I am really surprised that Ganz hasn't made it more fair. It's difficult to explain these discrepancies to my 11, 9 and 5 year olds, who are upset if someone gets more flakes than the other. You're right - IT's NOT FAIR to some.

Oh well - at least we're getting them at all. :cmunk:

Best to all and Good Luck..

I haven't seen any snowflakes. Do they appear while you are in your pet's room, or can you be playing a game?

Finally........
I have snowflakes in a VERY random pattern. I was logged on all day today and Nada!!
Finally over an hour ago I stared getting flakes ( at random 6 min, 11 min, 4 min, 23 min 8min).
I went to my original webkinz room and moved items....then a snowflake appeared. I have done everything, loaded softwear, changed browsers....
With Fallfest I was logged on late at night KT and they were going by every three min.
I really hope they have fixed the error, it was very disheartinging and nerveracking.

I hope everyone else who has been put out by this gets tons of snowflakes and the prizes they want.

yes, you see and can click on flakes in the trading room and while you are trading. It is possible to miss a flake while you are loading though.

---------- Rinny added 4 Minutes and 43 Seconds later ----------

I find that I get 2 flakes either 6 or 11 minutes apart right after I log in. Sometimes, the 11 minutes continues for one or two more flakes but sometimes the next flakes takes well over 20 minutes. I've started to log out and relog as soon as flakes take longer than 15 minutes.

I can catch flakes while in the Curio shop, while trading, in a room (even while playing air hockey). Can you catch a flake in the newspaper or front page? I don't think it works in the arcade. I saw someone mention that you can catch flakes anywhere you can see you dock - does anyone know anything different?
