This is off subject of this topic (I didn't know where to post it) But does anyone know when the rest of the christmas items are going to show up?

I would be so sad if this is true.....I opened up three Asian accounts just for the different rares. And I like it because it is like you have an extra chance to get a differnt rare everyday. And I feel like Asian only rares are usually nicer than the ones we get on our Euro/US accounts. (That is, of course, my own opinion) Yes, it is hard to stay up late for Asian rares, and I don't know how many times my husband got upset because my alarm clock always woke him up two o'clock in the morning, not just me. Now I ask my mom who lives in Japan to watch my Asian accounts and I can sleep through most of the nights, so my husband is OK with it. (MY mom got addicted too and she now has her own accounts, by the way...And I watch her US account for rares. LOL)

I wonder if bunch of angry and sleepless husbands whose wives are addicted to Asian rares complained to GANZ...(J/K) But, seriously I hope this is not true. I would like to continue to see different rares on Asian account.

Back in May for two or three days things were in "sync". From February to May, the Curio Shop used to only make one change during the day. After those few days in may, the Curio Shop started changing two times a day.

If Ganz does manage to sync the three time zones, we will get only HALF the total number of rares per day. This is very very bad news. If aztec floors (for example) were showing up once every three months on average, they will now show up once every six months. How can anyone be pleased about this dis-improvement?

I really hope that you all are right and that everything will go back the way it was. I will stay optimistic!

I figured this out a while back & it was greed that made it change the first time & It has taken this long to fix the so called mistake. we may get too many pictures in our accounts!
they are trying to make everything so we have to pay real money for pictures of pictures of items, and if people must wait so long to get a rare then they will be more tempted to buy the GREEDESTORE items for the instant gradification of getting a picture of a picture to keep in your dock. woohoo ! I Should have said No to webkinz! it has been awful for me since I started it & gave up another hobby for it. It is soooo sad. ChA

they are trying to prevent us from getting items ahead of time that is why the asian account had no halloween gift bags, then they tried to correct it and it was already the next day so it really jammed the programs. not to mention the fact that they obviously don't go by the same calendar that the rest of us go by. just like kinzcash and kinztime !
So unless their Super Computer can stop the rotation of the earth, the days and time will always be different & to make it 'fair' unfortunately they will have to make all the time zones the same so people in japan will be palying thru their night et... or leave it the way it was before when it did work (NOVEMBER of 2007)

I don't feel that the Curio Rares and the estore items are a trade off of any sort or a way for Ganz to be greedy. It is not as though the estore is offering to sell the Aztec, Medieval, Ancient, and other rare themes in the estore. The estore has completely different products.

And I feel that most collectors will always want to buy, with Kinzcash, the Rares that Arte offers. It is also why so many are upset about the change. My asian accounts were my primary form of collecting the Aztec Theme. So I am extremely dissapionted that things have changed. And I am hoping they will go back to the way they were...different from US and Europe.

Also as far as the estore is concerned, WW members basically asked for them to create this. Ebay and other sites sold virtual items for a long time, for real world cash. It was basically a 'black market for rare virtual items'. And they sold like hotcakes. All Ganz did was give us what they thought we wanted and probably even more than 'black market buyers' could have imagined. So I can why some people feel that it is a rip off, but I also see why people don't.

Responding to underlined part:

I am not sure what you are talking about. My Asain accts and many other sreported that they recieved their Halloween treat bags Oct. 30th. Some even got more than one on Oct 30th.

I agree I was ok with them going in sync other then i just put a new pet on my asian account. But the fact that it seems we will only get one rare per day on the accounts now *****!!!! I am disappointed for that reason.............
