All 3 kids vote faithfully on their choice on Friday, as soon as the Game is announced, and begin playing on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, until it is over or LOST by 10:00 P.M. (bed time),,,

I, violeta508, am their grandmother, and I know this because they use MY COMPUTER for all their Webkinz activities! I am also the one who has bought ALL their plushes and virtuals for the past 4 years...

I agree with their rules, many of them are very generous, but numerous existing non-fixed GLITCHES play havoc with many of their activities -- again, I am the first to hear about it all, first hand. They also write COMMENTS/Questions directly, but they never know if they have been read or received by anybody at Ganz...

The announcement at the end of the costest already includes the information that they "did not win" because they "did not participate", which they did! Does continuing to play after the contest ends change the non-winning into a winning situation? Has anyone experienced that personally?

Please let me know if you can... THANKS for reading the rantings of a loving (and spoiling) grandmother, who HATES to see 3 very disappointed kids EDIT

Please remember not to reveal the ages of our dear ones It is for their safety we ask this.

Great to get another Community Challenge win. Congrats to everyone who played.

Violeta - here is something I do with the community challenge. First thing on Saturday, I play a short game of whatever the challenge for the week is. I am not trying to get points, but just get it registered that I played the game. I then go to the newspaper and check to make sure it says that I am entered in the game. I have never had any problems with then getting a did not participate message.

Of course then I go back and pick an account low on KC and play away trying to get points. LOL

Blessings, and I hope this helps for future Communal Challenges. Sorry I can't help you with figuring out if you can change anything at this point. I hope you can get it worked out.

THANKS VERY MUCH, MOMZKINZA for your helpful advice! I will tech the little one to follow your instructions...

I think we may all have been excited about this for nothing, as I still believe that the contest is not over until MIDNIGHT, and that Monday A.M. they will ALL be winners, as they participated... In the meantime, they contune to play the game (they like it...) this time on my laptop --supervised, of course, by yours truly...

By the way, they are ALL HAPPY now, as they received the retired pet's cupcake, and only the oldest one played the related activities, as she is the only one who wanted the virtual & plush, because she LOVES DINOSAURS!

Not voting does not necessarily “indicate lack of interest in participating that weekend.” If you don’t vote you can still enter on the weekend by clicking Enter on the Communal Contest page.

I have voted in most of the contests, but for the contest before the current one I had no preference among four prizes I didn’t care about, so I chose not to vote. I left that to those with a preference. But I had every intention of participating. Early on Saturday I tried to log on to the Contest page to enter but got a white screen. Without officially entering, our scores are not counted towards the communal goal. Throughout the day I tried a number of times to enter, and each time I got the white screen. When the page finally loaded in the late afternoon I was met with the Goal Achieved banner. Naturally, it was too late for me to participate, but my failure to participate was the result of a glitch rather than lack of interest. If the goal had not been reached early, I would have entered and played when the page finally loaded on Saturday afternoon.

This week I voted, not to show interest but to make sure I wasn’t glitched out of another contest.

I do agree that people should not be allowed to deliberately wait for a goal to be reached before entering, but I don’t really think many people do that.

I'm not convinced that voting makes any difference at all. At least not that I have seen on our accounts. My kids and I all vote every week, usually on Monday even. However if we do not participate before the goal is reached we do not get the prize. Like the other week. We all voted, we were unable to play before the goal was reached (it was super fast) but we all played the game anyways after the goal was reached just in case. None of the 8 accounts received anything at all.

I think it has more to do with actually PARTICIPATING in reaching the goal. And that is totally FAIR. Otherwise people will just wait and see if others are going to reach the goal or not before deciding to enter. Or wait for other people to do the work and then sneak in at the last minute to help claim the prize. This is exactly why Ganz changed it in the first place so you had to participate.

I realize that it sometimes seems unfair to those who didn't get a chance to play before the goal was reached. But life is not always fair. And yes there are some accounts that seem to just be dealing with glitches. I really do hope they fix those for them.

it really isn't fair if you vote,play to reach the goal succeed and then don't win.
