I guess it's good that the expired accounts don't shut down completely--and it's good for little ones, who are not using the trading and posting a lot. But really, it still does expire / sort of shut down. I have mixed feelings about it.

They were not saying that our account will not expire anymore? I'm confuse now...

My account says it's automatic renewal, I guess it's because my deluxe subscription?

Click the image to open in full size.

On my daughter account that says it expires in January 2012 because I am adopt a new pet for her today, thinking that it would renew his account forever ...
I was wrong it seems ...

Click the image to open in full size.

So, is it me who has misunderstood, or for some people, the account will never expire, deluxe member or not?

Please, explain to me, thanks!!!

pigtoes95:

i'm confused how do you know if you have resrictions? so do they still expire?

my account says it epxires november 11 i thought they werent going to expire! i am so confused i hAVE deluxe membership so doesnt that mean it wont expire?

Answer:

Remember before if your account expired you could NOT play anymore until you adopt another webkinz?
Well, now, if your account expires, you'll still be able to play, just not:
Trade, Send packages, or buy party boxes.

Darn, I was so excited to get rid of the 5 extra accounts I'm tired of taking care of. XD
This stinks too cause now I can't take stuff off expired accounts my friends no longer play on.
Oh well, I'll live.
It's still nice to not have to keep adopting new pets.

Full access to your account will still expire in a year if you don't adopt a pet. You can still access the limited portion of your account. You just can't trade, send items etc. They still need to keep people aware of when their full access ends so they keep the expiration dates there.

I agree that no matter what Ganz does people will complain. My goodness they are giving free access to account people haven't bothered with in ages but that still isn't enough. If you haven't played in over a year why would they keep your accounts on their servers? You abandoned the account for over a year!

Ganz is a business. A business needs profits to grow. If they let everyone play everything for free how would they keep their business going? They aren't being mean they are running a business, no profit, no webkinz at all.

It makes a lot of sense that someone could have malicious accounts just to try to get information in order to access other people's accounts. The best way to do that is to have access to their kinzpost and the trading room. If you remove those two security risky activities then chances are you will be a safer community once you go free accounts. It really does make sense and I think it was the right move.
It would also keep people from sending all your stuff to another account. I agree with you with safety, but I think that once accounts are opened, people might send all their stuff.

You are also not eligible to win 'click to win' stuff at the webkinz news site. For instance the floating restaurant shirt going on this weekend.

If you have been "Sharing" with your friends and "Helping" others and you have extra accounts then you have been a full member this whole time so what is your complaint? You had to adopt a webkinz or buy a deluxe membership to even play on webkinz at all so what is the big deal? If you like to trade and send kinzpost then nothing changes for you. You just adopt another webkinz like you have in the past or buy deluxe. If you just want to play games and don't care about trading or sending then the free thing is good.

I am extremely upset about this new improvement?????

Grammak and all others on this thread who think that Ganz has taken something away from you, you misunderstand what has happened. Kandeekane is correct. As long as you are now a member, everything remains the same. Everything is good.

The confusion stems from Ganz's use of the new term "Full Member." You mistakenly think that that now makes you a lesser member, but all Ganz did was change the terminology. Nothing was taken away from you. All those who were Members at the time of the change are now Full Members. That change of name was necessary to differentiate paid-up members (those who have bought a pet or a Deluxe Membership) from the new category of players who do not buy anything but still keep limited access to their expired accounts. I assume they will now be called Members, though I didn't see that stated anywhere. All you have to do to keep your full membership when your year is up is do what you have always done: buy a new Webkins or Deluxe Membership.

As for all those kids who were mourning their lost pets because they couldn't afford to renew their accounts, they can have them back.

This time Ganz has definitely done something good.
