I'm giving up. I've found something in the other contests, so I know it's not me or my computer. Those zums are just few and far between. Didn't find a one in over two hours. Don't really think it's fair to the kids to do this on a school day.
Aw do not give up! Maybe try later in the day

I don't really care about the zum either - we have two, and they are kinda bratty/high maintainence! I do want the t-shirt though, just because so many of YOU have said it's cool!
good luck everyone.
THanks for the good luck, but what i do is go to the homepage, re-fresh, wait10-15seconds re-fresh and after about 15-30minutes i found one, so just keep trying!
Another disappointing contest from Ganz.
I did get a couple of codes in the very beginning, but nothing for hours now.
I hate spending time and getting nothing.
Why do they have these contests if they don't want to give out anything.
Upset and confused.
There is certainly not as many as there usually are during this click to win! This was done on really short notice. I am in the Eastern Time Zone, but it doesn't seem fair to the other people in different time zones. They won't have the same amount of time to try. I think the Halloween event starts to-morrow, so I don't know why they didn't have this at some other time! I know, like everyone else, I have other things to do to-day in my REAL life.
(I've updated it so it's more in line with how the contest works on the new WKN site.)
Okay guys, I have a theory about why the floaters start off-screen and make you wait a while before they "enter" from the left; and why they sometimes float back off your screen completely side-to-side.
The new WKN site uses this as its background:
That sucker is a whopping 1656 pixels wide.
Now, my theory is that the floaters are programmed to start right at the left edge of the background image, and are also programmed not to go any further left or right than the background image. Not the SCREEN, but the BACKGROUND IMAGE.
If this theory is correct, it means that if your computer's screen resolution is set to 1656 pixels wide or more, no problem, you'll see the floater right away at the left side of your screen. But if your settings are for a smaller width than that (as I think most people's are), it might take a while for the floater to move into view because you can't see the entire width of the background image.
What it also means is that the wider your screen resolution settings are, the faster you'll see the floater and the less likely it is that you'll miss the floater because it floats back offscreen.
Just a theory, but it's worth trying out if you are able to set your screen resolution really huge.
Seems like a good theory. However, my screen resolution is 1366 pixels (which is pretty high resolution--I think average is 1024) and I have not seen a single zum. I have tried waiting for it but still don't get anything. Yet your theory inspired me, so I also tried to zoom out in my browser so that I can see the entire background, and so far nothing to report. I will let you know if I see any using this approach.
Please note that you do need to scroll down the screen to look for Zofia! Sometimes she is appearing more than half way down the page -not just floating down, but entering the screen at the lower point. So, if you are just refreshing at the top, you will miss her completely.
