Ganz is goin to far!! They are making stuff that you have to buy online!! This is unfair since I'm not allowed to buy stuff online!! First the e-store, now deluxe members. I want to be a deluxe member SO bad but I can't be one. Ganz is doing this just to earn more money!! They make better stuff for the deluxe members, like this one and the deluxe wheel!! I just think has gone to far with webkinz, it is unfair that accounts will expire and you have to buy stuff online to get the better stuff!! They are doing this JUST to earn money!! I think it is REALLY unfair!! You don't know how bad I want to be a deluxe member!!
I think this whole thing is one big mess and the Deluxe thing is getting COMPLETELY out of hand. This is America, we're at least supposed to have democracy, not aristocracy. It's just not at all good to make some kids into second class citizens because they're not Deluxe. Hello, not everyone can afford multiple accounts and deluxe here, there and everywhere. What happened to the nice, fun Webkinz of yore? This is way warped.
I think everyone should calm down...I don't think that Ganz meant to make it so hard for regular members (or deluxe members, for that matter). It is obvious to me that there is one big glitch with the new Curio Shop. Hopefully they will fix it tonight.
Just spent the last 40 minutes logging in and out to finally see the vase-a rare I have been waiting months for-sooooo aggravated! I cannot believe this is supposed to work this way-I just barely got the vase in the last 10 minutes of the sale. This is nuts-what is the point of working so hard to move up levels with Arte to get the news about rares (or check in with the ever so awesome WI) and then not be able to access them? Makes me very angry-my kids are beside themselves with annoyance because they have to keep logging in too. What a mess. Please may this be a glitch and get worked out-I have no problem with Deluxe folks having an extra one, but please do not make it nigh impossible for us "regular" folks, who spend lots of $$$ on the every day Webkinz items, to access the rare item we have been saving for for so long. Very disappointed and frustrated here!!
Our family does not have deluxe accounts and I am OK with us not having the special features-like the wheel etc. But I do not think this new curio shop is fair at all to the non deluxe members.
Both of my kids accounts needed the vase tonight. It wasnt too bad on my daughters account, it took me logging in and out 3 tmes for it to appear. My sons account, however it took me over 25 minutes of logging in and out in and out before it appeared. If I hadnt already gotten it for my daughter I would've given up.
I feel that at this point Ganz is really trying to push people into buying the deluxe memberships. Adding extra perks for deluxe members is one thing. Punishing the non-deluxe by making things almost impossible for them is going too far.
I am very frustrated right now.
I think (and hope) that this is the way it is SUPPOSED to work. This is what I had in mind when I first heard the news.
Nothing changes for the regular members....they see the exact 12 items they would see if this new curio shop didn't exist.
Deluxe members see those exact 12 items in their regular pane, but they get exclusive access to 12 items NOT offered to the regular members. The same sort of items are offered, but now deluxe members get access to 12 extra curio shop items each hour. Concerning rares, sometimes the deluxe members could get access to an extra rare that day, meaning they could buy 2 rares in one day rather than just one.
I am so confused by the 24 item exchange between the two shops...I think they should be totally separate. Why should members have to log in and out? Sometimes it takes me 10 minutes to log in...silly Adobe Flash Player error. I really, really hope that this is a big glitch, because nobody benefits.
I don't think this change is fair to the kids at all. What kind of example is it setting for them, that you have to have money to get things, that if you have money, you're better than the kids that don't? Shame on you Ganz, this should be a fun thing for everyone with equal chances for everyone. Maybe you are getting a bit too greedy?????
