No gifts here on our American accounts as of this moment. Disappointed but hopeful that I'll see our gifts in the morning!

Odd how they gave out a variation of gifts this year. Not crazy about that-but oh well-cute stuff none the less...

Mom of Twizzlerz here

People want to vent. Say "I'm in that boat, too."

Very understandable. That is why the thread grew so fast.

They at least saw some of the explanation to get to the thread.
And the gifts are great.
It's just the hurt/anxiousness/disappointment of the youngsters today feeding the fire.

Being dismissive of those feelings just makes it worse.

Yes, things may well be there tomorrow. That said and accepted.
---------------

That doesn't fix the frustration of adults over the disappointment of the children.
The "I just have to check"s heard all afternoon and evening.
I'm sure alot of it is wanting to be sure Ganz sees all the steam rising and hoping some year
it will have an impact.

And I have no sympathy for the programmers.

I programmed & was Sr. Analyst in high security / critical systems for years.
Husband works on hospital systems.
It's called testing & analyzing.
We did it in school - our grades were based on how often the prof could break our code.
We [class] were gooood. But people are no longer trained as they once were.
If I goofed, I stayed on my dime until it was fixed. Have stayed 75 hrs straight helping others
fix their goofs and testing everything again.
Husband has often worked 100+ hour wks fixing 3rd party pkgs.
Just saying I know of what I speak. It is part of the job.

Unfortunately, from this and recent past it seems Ganz does not test things well, if at all.
Thank goodness they don't work on critical systems.

When somethiing happens give real explanations,
especially where youngsters are involved.
At least they did say they goofed today. Last Sunday they didn't.
They did the right thing by extending that contest, but not in explanation given.
The "Santakinz oversleeping & personally delivering" was the icing on the cake.
Unnecessary and obviously not true. Too open to misinterpretation by the
younger set. A little more care in wording, and a bit more truth.

--------------------------------
So let us vent, then retire with some stress relieved.
It's a big boat & the sun will rise [if not shine] tomorrow.

And it really is just the start of the Christmas season - which runs to Little Christmas.
A peaceful season to all.

There are definitely two sides to this one. Yep it was fun going to SantaKinz room and choosing your own gift, but it is very disappointing when it takes forever for the "follow through". I think Ganz should re-think this one, as it ends up being a LOT of extra work for their employees who should be at home with their families. Do the "one gift for all" and have it sent on time, and Ganz will have loads of happy people instead of disgruntled ones. If they do the 12 days of Christmas thing again next year, keep the SantaKinz room going, but have Ms Birdy in there at all times, so everyone has a chance of finding her.

My granddaughters did not go in the Santakinz room on their accts. And I totally forgot to remind them (shame on me) Is that the only way everyone got a Christmas gift this year??
I really don't remember now. Sure would appreciate it if someone could tell me. Thanks.

You get a random gift (of the 3 choices) if you didn't visit Santakinz.

Hopefully we'll all have our gift boxes tomorrow morning. Too bad this didn't go as they planned. Cute idea; it must have been a bit more complicated than they thought.

I understand that alot of little ones were dissapointed. I too have a little one that did not recieve her gift. However, even the little ones know that webkinz is a GAME. It is not real life, it is a virtual GAME. Most of the children know already that in the GAME of webkinz sometimes things break. Things break and you go on with playing. Although I agree that Ganz does not test thier new programing well enough, and that they may have overshot with trying to add so many new features this year. You have got to commend Ganz for trying to make the holliday more enjoyable for everyone.

For those of you that were around other years for christmas, do you not remember only getting a couple gifts on christmas day, and only if you logged in to get them in time? This year, they gave everyone a CHANCE to get 12 gifts from ms birdy, and even though the gifts are a little late, EVERYONE is going to get thier gifts.

Yes they made a mistake, No they didnt test thier programing good enough,
BUT....
I feel they are working very hard to fix thier mistake and are giving the gift to everyone (even those that were away or for whatever reason didnt get a chance to log in on Christmas Day)

I, for one, Give them credit for their efforts in trying to fix the situation.

If your child is one of the children that is upset about not getting their gifts today, remind them that it is a GAME, remind them of the other times there has been errors in the game, and if they are really little just assure them that they did nothing wrong.

There is no use in risking your real life health worring so hard about a Game. Would you be freaking out so much if you lost a piece of a board game? I doubt people would.

YES, speak your frustrations.
NO, don't get yourself so worked up and stressed out that you endanger your health in the long run.

That being said, I wish each and every one of you a happy and healthy holliday season.
