Default Re: It's Time For Winterfest In Webkinz World!

Ok i have to say i'm extremely dissapointed with this whole "prize limit" nonsense from ganz. I've been a member for many many years and have actually enjoyed most if not all their previous winter fests. When they made that prize limit for the fallfest it thought, i guess 15 a day is reasonable, not happy about it but its tolerable. Now i see them doing this prize limit yet again for the winterfest! and i find out now its only 10 snowflakes a day on the weekend and 5 a day for the weekday!! Sorry but i cannot understand those that think there is nothing wrong with this.... I think the prize limit is just plain ridiculous.. Not everyone can be on ww everyday(including me) and when i am too busy during the week,( in the past) i would set aside a day or two where i could go on and catch a good amount of snowflakes, which would make up for not catching any on other days i'm busy, but the way this is set up is if you miss even a day then your limited to even less snowflakes because you cannot make them up later!( And not to mention those that don't have 15 something accounts to rack up those snowflakes despite the limit). Sorry but i don't think having to log on every day just to catch a few flakes because you can't set aside a few days for catching rather than everyday is really fair. And as for the limiting it because people will sit on the computer all day? Well i think that is just plain ridiculous, setting aside time to go "flake hunting" a few days a week i personally think is more fun than having to log on everyday just to get your few measly flakes. Ok i'm done with my ranting, i'm guess i'm just missing the old WW.

Ah that explains why on my Asian account that I have a 5 flake limit. Hmm. It doesn't cost Ganz anything to let us have our prizes... why the limit?

Anyone who thinks the limit on the snowflakes is fair is being very selfish.Just because they only have a little time to play and can not get as many snow flake as others they do not want the people who have more time to play to get more than them. If I play 8 hours a day that is my business .If you can not play as long, you do not get as much, That is fair .If someone works longer they get more money and if they study longer they get better grades in school.So if I play longer I should get more stuff .Now you are telling me how to live ,and how much time i can do things,not fair at all!

I do agree - I am not sure why Webkinz feels it is their job to limit the time spent searching for flakes.

I think maybe they don't want kids on webkinz all day searching for snowflakes so that's why they make a limit. They might also be trying to be fair so everyone has an equal chance of getting the same amount of prizes. I don't favor having a limit for prizes or unlimited prizes, I'm just saying what I think ganz reason might be.

Yep, with a limit of 10 today, this was not cool.
That's so not cool
I think I would have had to log out and back in and hope to break that cycle.
I don't think 5 a day is fair either.
Good luck everybody

Ok, I know I've already commented about how disappointed I am about this year's Winter Fest, but while I was walking my dogs this afternoon, I thought of another important aspect of this snowflake limit. Many people have multiple Webkinz accounts. The 10 snowflake limit ( or 5 during weekdays. ) may not seem to be a big deal for them because they can still collect 100+ prizes a day. I have 1 wonderful Webkinz account they I cherish and take very good care of everyday. I don't have a ton of pets, but I love Webkinz World and enjoy their Fests all year long. This snowflake limit ( or leaf limit for that matter.) takes all the fun away for some members who really look forward to collecting the rare prizes like the snowflake face stickers or snowglobe hat. Ganz should realize that their members pay for this site. The pets we adopt cost money. We're keeping them in business by purchasing pets and enjoying Webkinz World. Not every member has multiple accounts...let the members enjoy everything in Webkinz World. Ok, I'm done. Hope I haven't offended anyone.

Sadly if people refer to the WIGEV they will be trading away some older prizes at current values...which is a little unfair. This is the Newspaper in WW:

I know some have returned on the Webkinz Newz site, but those items are not necessarily available to all WW members and they are also not flying as flakes, rather they are random in Peek-A-Newz...and some of the older ones are being classified as rare or very rare??? Many of us would just love some clarification regarding what really is returning and if values for Peek-A-Newz items are dropping to current Winterfest Click To Win values...even though they are not Click to Win items?

For me I've clicked my limit of flakes each day on 10 accounts...2 of which are Asian accounts, and the only returning items I have gotten at all with the flakes are:

Icicle Wind Chime
Potted Ice Flower
Snowman Cookie
Winterfest Hoodie
Winterfest Window

Not sure about everyone else, but those are the only 5 returning prizes I have seen...and Ganz has said that there would only be 5 returning prizes...so I would think those are the only returning Click To Win prizes.
Icicle Wind Chime
Potted Ice Flower
Snowman Cookie
Winterfest Hoodie
Winterfest Window

That's the only returning items I got too.
I would like to get a snowflake rug and a Polar Plunge Poster

I have enough snowflake rugs myself...and a few of the posters, but man, if that poster returned, I'm sure there would be a lot of happy people!

I agree. this limit this is out of control. they have put limits on two too many of our dearly loved fests. On a lesser note, the snowglobe hat is rare? I knew the stickers but not the hat.
