In the fifth account, not only did it say we failed to meet the goal, but the selection of prizes for next week's game is totally different. I'll vote there and play there this coming week just to see what the deal is. But I think it's odd that Ganz is saying the goal wasn't met, when it was.
I have the same situation. 6 accts received the prize for completing the goal but the 7th acct says we didn't complete the goal and the selection of prizes for this week is totally different and doesn't even include the safari jacket. I called Ganz and they said they will look into it with the technical team. So if you have this issue - CALL GANZ at 1-866-932-5469.

I think the Safari Jacket would be a cool prize also. I wish it had more votes. Kinz Cash is great but I still want the jacket. It is a tough item for anyone to get. You have to buy a kids shirt and get a tag and then choose that outfit instead of the mad scientist or rock star which are way more popular. I wonder if they will offer any other of the tshirt box items. Maybe shutters....how cool would that be?

the safari jacket is estore, you don't have to buy a kids shirt to get it, its 1500 points for deluxe members,

Sorry I am wrong, I thought the safari jacket was the rescue jacket

I voted last week, played over the weekend, and I, like a few others, didn't win the prize. I also have a different selection of prizes to pick from for next week.

Congrats everyone who helped! But i am not going to get the prize because:
1) I have too many of those in my house :/
2) I would kinda feel guilty if i got it because i didn't help out at all and that would be like taking a free item. Just in my opinion. :|

After the first two weeks of the communal contest, however, I have to say that I'm not very impressed by this new feature. Unfortunately it feeds into one of my negative criticisms of Webkinz World, which is activities which encourage obessive behaviors. This weekend was too beautiful for myself or my kids to be spending time repeatedly playing a game to meet some arbitrary goal.

I like the aspects of WW which promote creativity or brain thought. Originally I thought the idea of a communal activity sounded great, but I guess I thought the goals would be more worthwhile (like special sets of Quizzie's questions or donating food to a virtual Webkinz food bank or even adding a certain number of new friends to our friends list.) Really we already have a much greater sense of community here at WI where we are constantly helping each other out.

Sorry to be a downer, but I think I'll pass on the communal contests from now on. But congratulations to those who played and enjoy this activity!

I have to agree, community efforts of a group should not encourage endless hours of obsessive playtime on a computer. Ganz should encourage more creative efforts that involve more than game play..but real community involvement...with kids as the center of those activities. Prizes are silly for the time expected to reach a goal. Its up to us adults to make sure our children can set healthy goals for their life and spend time with friends and outside instead of playing games with a computer to reach a meaningless goal. When I say meaningless I am referring to what does this actually do for the world or the community or those in need in the "real world"? WW is great fun and I love the site, but I would much rather see a child make something to sell to offer money to a charity for a community effort then stack up points in a game online that goes no where towards community. I realize that they are just trying to get kids to work together, but in a faceless society...computers are faceless...its just not really a good use of time. So to me, its a poor substitute for real community efforts on the part of our children. So lets get the kids to be creative in a real life world situation that benefits others in a real life community and have a prize for that...that will encourage real community efforts, help the community and show kids the true meaning of "community."
