But in their greed, Ganz has now crossed a line and inexcusably gone down a path that will only serve to alienate thousands of their devote customers.
How dare they create an exciting new WShop theme, then turn around and make parts of it available only in the eStore!!! My mind goes back to that recent little Kinzville News survey where they asked how much we like the new theme. The first response you could check was something to the effect of, "I love it and plan to get all of it!" Everyone in my family chose that response.
In reality, Ganz didn't really care how much we enjoy their latest creative effort. They were fishing for information to see how deeply they could potentially dive into our wallets. Is this the tip of the iceberg and an acute indicator of things to come with all future WShop development? Throw us a few bones we can buy with KinzKash but if we want the complete set, we have to open our wallets? If this is their mindset, I can foresee more and more free themes being retired in favor of new themes which will end up costing big bucks en masse.
WE ALREADY PAY DEARLY for the use of their website via the purchase of an ever-increasing number of monthly plush releases & sundry merchandise, in addition to our Deluxe Membership fees. Thousands of us have supplemented our tangible purchases with countless eStore virtual purchases, 99% of which cannot be traded or simply moved to other accounts within our own families! This fact alone is an unjust Ganz' policy, in my opinion, which I have deliberately chosen to rationalize and/or turn a blind eye.
This latest Ganz' ploy with the Galaxy theme is the ultimate straw that broke the camel's back for me. I flatly refuse to condone their underhanded greed by purchasing WShop theme items in the eStore.
For everyone who criticized me for calling Ganz cheap due to a lackluster Winterfest, THIS IS A PRIME EXAMPLE of how they instead prioritized their time -- by developing new virtual items which can only be purchased, and are not able to be transferred among our own accounts or traded. And all of their efforts were in lieu of their completing sorely needed glitch repairs and learning/developing solid flash code programming that works properly and doesn't impair the overall functioning of our computers.
To our WI members who dislike negativity expressed against Ganz on the forum, I'm sorry I feel compelled to say these things about Ganz. I love WW but given my business background, I strongly believe a line has been unjustly crossed and that this is the beginning of a dangerous trend.
I agree with you on most parts. e-store *****. BUT I can see why ganz made items non-tradable, what about scammers? they would be able to, with just enough tricks and cheat codes, STEAL your money. I agree with you on everything else. ganz is going TOO far.
