Thanks MysticZon - I'll have to see if the ones that she wants to hide away will go in the storage container. They can be placed on tables too, not just the floor.

Well said MysticZon. Thanks for the detailed explanation. I've told the kids over & over that Ganz is in this to make money, and that our angst at not being able to win those elusive prizes and constant glitches is not Ganz's concern (still makes us frustrated though. ) Since it was introduced, the parent site has not worked well. Constant glitches with all their contests and giveaways. But as you said, they draw us in for those prizes, and as we click to win, they are making money, which, at the end of the day, is what they are in business for. It's just such a shame that it comes at a cost to us. We can though choose, not to particpate. Its getting hard to decide where to draw the line. They went from doing nothing to over the top this year. We've always had glitches with Ganz (that will never change) but I'm moving towards wanting to go back to the old way. That we only had giveaways once in a while. It really is too much now. I almost think that they keep us busy on the newz site to kepp us of Insider and other sites like this one, in addition to making money on the ads. We missed a lot of the late August - early September giveaways because real life intruded. We opted out of WW for those few weeks. Sorry to have missed the prizes but my dock is so full I can;t keep up with room decorating as it is. Employment office? Academy? Stadium? Who has time when all I am doing is clicking to win?

Well done Ganz. The $$$$ are yours.

I've won 3 CD's on one account and cannot figure out how to get it out of my dock. I drag it into a room and it asks if I want to download, I say yes and it puts an empty file on my desktop and nothing downloads and the image won't leave my dock. Could it be that I'm on a Mac? I'm a little OCD about my dock and it's driving me nuts

FYI: Got out my old PC laptop and was able to drag the CD into my room and it downloaded and left my dock. Thought Mac users might run into the same situation, so I wanted to share.

Here's what fits and what doesn't fit in a Sailor's Shipping Crate. I just tried a Series 3 figurine in a different container (the rare theme Palace Princess Armoir which just happened to be in my dock) and it fits. So it's not just the Sailor's Shipping Crates that work.

Also, ALL Series 1 and 2 figurines will fit in a storage container, so if you have spares of those and don't know what to do with them, here's your answer !!

GPX Navigator, I have thought often that wkn was created to pull us off of ww. The reduction of servers and ww phones glitching up so badly is the cost to all of us!!!

We too have stopped playing for weeks and months at a time due to a combination of the before mentioned and rl. I think you both you and Mystic made some good points.

Thanks for reading all of my post, GPX. I appreciate that. And you hit the nail right on the head. It all began during February of this year. That's when Ganz went from using it's own exclusive ads to advertise it's own products on WKN to using third party ads supplied by an outside company to make money off of us. And while that's OK in some respects because Ganz is a business and businesses need to make money, are we really getting the most bang for our buck when it comes to the prizes and our time ?? I mean, the whole LOVE PINK promo can boil down to false advertising as far as I'm concerned because we aren't getting what we were promised. I swear if I see one more CD cover in my various accounts' docks, I'ma gonna scream.

But let's take it one step further. This is also around the same time we saw third party ads invade WW on the log in, log out pages and the ever annoying, ever present Rice Krispies ad that appears on the Hourly Activities page. Just think of how many members are logging in and out of their accounts every minute of every day. And every time those ads are shown, KA-CHING for Ganz.

As I said in my lengthy article two pages ago, so long as we keep clicking, Ganz will definitely keep doing these prize giveaways and we have to choose which event we want to be frustrated and disappointed in the most. In other words, how much of our time are we willing to give up to get the elusive prizes we covet the most ??

Ganz is a marketing genius. I'll give them points for that.

Awwww shucks, thanks for your kind words, Jamey2u, and no rep is necessary but I appreciate the thought.

I just want people to know that nothing is "free" when it comes to Ganz.

I couldn't agree more, GPX! It seems like it went from an occasional giveaway that glued us all to the screen for a week at a time (Fall Fest, Winter Fest, Wacky Zingoz Fest), to a constant onslaught of freebies that can be ours if only we will spend hours on Webkinz Newz, doing Peek a Newz, watching the newest POTM video, looking for floaty-clicky heads, searchng for ads for free Spree Rolls, taking polls and surveys, and now doing the same on the WKN parent site! It now takes me a few hours to do all my daily WI, WKN, and WW things, and I have given up many of the activities on WW because I simply don't have the time. Yes, I certainly could stop if I wanted to, but truth be told, I'm a sucker for a freebie. I kind of liked it the old way, when the free things were fewer and farther between but meant more. I could give up several hours a day for a short period of time, but I can't make it my new lifestyle.
