I have about 1-2 hours before I have to leave, dogs are walked and played with, so I think I'll log in 3 accounts and see how it goes. My best times are 6-9pm central time. Mornings are always slow in these fests.

Good luck everyone. If you don't see a leave in about 20-30 minutes log out and back in. I've found if I don't see one by then I probably won't get any or just 1 or 2.

logged on at 3:30 am eastern time, my asian accounts (2) were very active for about an hour and a half. 18 leaves over the duration. only one new item, lumberjack jacket : ( this morning has been a total bust. i just gave up for now. it seems that at about 2:30 pm eastern time things seem to pick up again (for me atleast). yesterday i was on a 5 min schedule for about an hour. then things dropped off so i logged out and logged back in but then nothing again.

Logged in 3 accounts for 35 minutes long enough to have 3 11 minute cycles. Not a leaf on any of them. Logged back out. Will try later. Not worth sitting for that.

GUIDE TO 2010 FALLFEST, aka How the heck do I find leaves

How often do the leaves show up?

The leaves are programmed to have a chance of appearing on a timed cycle. Based on reports from various WI members, the cycle appears to be 5 minutes from about 2pmKT to about 9:30pmKT, and 9 minutes from about 9:30pmKT to 2pmKT.

What this means is that if, for example, you log on at 3:03pmKT (during the 5-minute cycle period), you have a chance of seeing a leaf at 3:08, 3:13, 3:18, 3:23, 3:28, and so-on.

Notice that I say a CHANCE. There is no guarantee that a leaf will actually show up at each 5- or 9- minute interval. I've been tracking my login times and leaf-appearing times, and based on my records, I believe that the odds of getting a leaf at each interval are 1 in 4. This means that if you log on during the 5-minute interval period and wait around for 20 minutes (that's four cycles), you will probably see one leaf; and if you log on during the 9-minute interval period and wait around for 36 minutes (that's four cycles), you will probably see one leaf. However, you could be lucky and see two, three, or even four leaves during that time...or you could be unlucky and see none.

Do I have to be anywhere specific in Webkinz World to see the leaves?

Yes. You have to be somewhere in Webkinz World where you can see your dock. No dock, no leaves.

Some WI users have claimed that they have more luck seeing leaves in specific dock-displaying spots in WW, for example, the Contact Us page on the newspaper, or Quizzy's. However, no actual study of this has been done, and the official word on the WI wiki is that it doesn't matter where in WW you are, as long as you can see your dock, the odds of seeing a leaf are the same.

You're full of it! I've been waiting around forever and have seen zero leaves!

Based on reports from WI members, there does appear to be a genuine problem with some people not seeing leaves, even after waiting around for a lot of intervals. One WI member received called [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] and was told that you will only see leaves if you are "activated" when you log in. We don't know what this means, exactly, or why activation does or doesn't happen, but it appears that sometimes when you log in, you're "activated" (and will see leaves), and sometimes when you log in, you're not (and will not see leaves). The best advice to deal with this is that if you've gone through a whole bunch of interval cycles without seeing any leaves, log off and then log back on, to try and "activate" yourself. And once you see a leaf, stay logged in and keep waiting through the intervals for more to show up.

What if my WW clock gets out of sync with the actual time?

We've seen conflicting reports from WI members about this one - some say that if your WW clock gets out of sync, the leaves will stop falling, and some say that if your WW clock gets out of sync, the leaves will fall faster. So it's hard to say. My own personal experience is that when my WW clock gets out of sync it doesn't affect a darn thing, and the leaves continue to have a chance of coming on a 5- or 9-minute cycle.

You're wrong - it's between 2pm and 9:30pm where I am and the leaves are still falling on a 9-minute cycle

Based on what I've been reading on this thread, I believe that whether the leaves come every 5 minutes or every 9 minutes is based on the KT of the account you're logged into, not on the time where you actually are. So, for example, if where you live it is 3pm Eastern Time, but you log into your Asian account, it will be 5:15amKT on the account, which means the leaf chance interval will be 9 minutes. (This calculation is based on information from this thread, which says that KT on Asian accounts is 15 hours ahead of Eastern Time.) Similarly, if you are living in Vancouver where it's Pacific Time, and it's 8pm there, I think (not sure, but I think it works like this) that if you log into an American account (which is based on Eastern Time), the KT will be 11pm, which means you'll be on a 9-minute interval instead of a 5-minute interval.

I'm seeing leaves but I can't click on them!

From various reports from multiple WI members, it does indeed seem that some people are actually unable to click on leaves. Or, they click on them, but the dreaded "Please Wait..." appears and never goes away. Obviously, this is very frustrating, and we don't know why it's happening. One WI member provided the tip that if you click in front of the leaf instead of on the leaf itself, you will be able to catch them if you were having trouble before. So try that. If it still doesn't work, then I would give [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] a call, because this is obviously a technical problem for you.

Okay, I've caught lots of leaves but all I'm getting are the old prizes!

It's very clear from WI member reports that the new prizes (Lumberjack Hat, Lumberjack Boots, Woolly Galoshes, Autumn Tree Globe, Colorful Corn Display and Gourd Table Candle) are much more rare than the old prizes (Autumn Striped Sweater, Autumn Sunset Toque, Baked Butternut Squash, Decorative Cornucopia, Decorative Wheat Sheaf, Fall Festival Place Setting, Hot Apple Cider, Potted Elm Tree, and Pressed Leaf Wall Plate). The ratio of the prizes I've been getting is one new prize for every four or five leaves I catch. And I haven't caught any Autumn Tree Globes.

HTH!

I hate that it is so hard to collect everything, especially the new items. I feel bad for those who are unable to watch multiple accounts at once.

[notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] amazes me sometimes. Last year for winterfest they only had 3 items. Which was a little disappointing if you wanted the old items. But at least it wasn't hard to collect everything. Then we get to Fallfest and there are 15 items! It seems like a happy medium might be better.

Which accounts seem to be doing best at the moment? I had one Euro, one Asian, and two NA accounts logged in for about 30 minutes. The Asian had gotten nothing so I logged another Euro one in instead.

I feel the same frustration like everybody else. I am an adult who works in the afternoon. I am never here in hours when kids are out of school so I can only play in the morning and in the evening for a limited time. I also know other adults with my schedule playing webkinz. For the amount of money we spend on webkinz [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] should keep us happy at any time of the day and have those leaves fly regularly.

Hopefully it will pick back up after school is out this afternoon like it has been. I'm not sure why they don't just start it in the afternoons if that is when they are going to give you any chance at getting leaves. Then everyone would know not to bother searching for them in the mornings. Think it would save a lot of frustration for some people if the did it that way. Of course then you have some that can't be on in the afternoons so they would be left out. Other than constant leaves which isn't going to happen there's really no way to make everyone happy.

Thumbs down Re: Fall Fest Leaf Timing and Other Questions Answered

[notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] has the timing adjusted so leaves fall less when kids are in school and more when they are out of school. They are looking into improving the odds.


I'd say that's a huge cover-up for bad programming. I made the time to go on yesterday from 4.30KT for 2 hours and 15 minutes, I was in my pet's room STARING at the screen waiting for leaves so I could figure out the timing - I got ONE leaf in that whole time

This is more of a fall flop than a fall fest.
