I got one leaf today at 10:19 KT (american) after waiting for 30 minutes. Then nothing after nine minutes, so I have decided to call it quits for now. If I have time I'll try after 4 pm, but it's harder for me to find time to play in the evening.
Good luck to those of you still trying!

I've been staring at 6 WW screens for over a total of 25 hours so far (not counting the first day on my 2 Asian accounts). I have been feeding my pets to keep the accounts "active". I have nowhere near the new items you have. Yesterday, for 8 hours (6 WW screens open), I received 2 new items. The day before for 6 hours (6 WW screens open), I received NO new items. The first day on 2 Asian accounts (when the American accounts didn't start yet), I got 1 new item on one account and all the other Asian account got was the food items! I have been on during the American "peak" hours every day. I think you are VERY LUCKY to have so many new items!

I am very upset at [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] right now!

I think the time has come to just sit and watch the screen and forget about timing...obviously...not everyone is on the schedule...so its time to either just sit and sit and sit....or give up..................

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 now appears to be 5 minutes from about 2pmKT to about 9:30pmKT, and 9 minutes from about 9:30pmKT to 2pmKT. ([notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] is reportedly doing this so that more leaves can be found during the period when kids are home after school finishes for the day.)

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 reported calling [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 every 5 or 9 minutes.

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 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!

Default Re: Fall Fest Leaf Timing and Other Questions Answered

For me, another huge disappointment with Webkinz. This is the fifth day of this leaf-catching extravaganza and I've only gotten 3 of them -- and all the same stuff from last year. Whoopee. First they make you feel like a second class citizen if you can't buy tons of special items at the eStore, and now this.
