I work, so I understand how it goes, trying to do everything on limited time, but I'm just trying to get what the point of limiting for fairness is....btw, I did my 10 snowflakes on one acct today and got 6 stinkin cookies, how is that fair?

I agree -- there is nothing 'fair' about it. I really like the fact that we get the flakes every 5 minutes (rather than 'a chance' of a flake every certain number of minutes), but limiting the number of flakes make no sense at all to me.

I was thinking that perhaps it was to limit hits on their servers, but if that were the case they would have suspended the challenges during this time. The only other possiblity I could think of is that it is their way of ensuring a rareness to some items -- to keep people interested. Who knows, but I certainly agree that it is not about fairness.

Oh i love the flakes every five minutes, now if they can lift that limit this would be a fabulous winterfest I was thinking they were limiting it because they think kids will be on the computer all day,( not that that bothered them in the past) but i'm sure thats the parents responsibility, not theirs

To the people I confused -- I copy and pasted what was available from the webkinz wiki winterfest page -- and accidentally C&P'd 2011 Sorry!
As for newer prizes being harder to find, I only find this to be true with items and clothing. I have no problems at all finding new food .
Also -- every time I get a snowglobe hat/PJ pants they come together, one after another. Anyone else get this? I'm getting the shortage of stickers too, though, after 2 days and 70ish snowflakes only 1 sticker.

I mainly get snowman cookies now. Daily, it seems, I get 1 wind chime and maybe some other things (I have a snowglobe hat and a pj pants and some hoodies, and rainbow icicles) but mainly snowman cookies.


Maybe stickers are rare and other prizes are common....like the spring click to win thing....

It only let me click 5 snowflakes today. Did this happen to anybody else?

Yes , I was only able to get 5 this evening and then they stopped. I'm hoping that when I get home from work tomorrow I'll be able to get the rest.

The weekday limit on snowflakes is 5. Friday, which is the last day for winterfest will go back to the 10 limit. Like I said in an earlier post, I do wish Ganz had left the limit at 15 a day for the entire week, like with the last fallfest. I do only have one account with 293 webkinz, so I really like the 15 daily limit. Hope everyone has a good week!

I have mixed feelings on this one - I like the frequent flakes - makes it easy to collect prizes - but wish the limit was higher. Each time I "win" food it feels like I've lost an opportunity for a good prize. If they limited it to 5 non food prizes and then all the cookies etc you can eat after that it would be great - that way there would be no limits and it would be more fair - everyone would have the opportunity for 5 decent prizes each day.

I totally agree with you Jarrah! A 5 prize limit should not include food.

OK now I see why some are complaining, I log into webkinz world this morning and a message pops up saying today I can only catch 5 snowflakes. That stinks. Most of the snowflakes I get are older prizes or food. All I really want now are the pajama pants. Seems like they will be harder to get now.

I don't understand why they have put the 5 snowflake limit on, 10 was OK, but Fallfest was so much better! Was it a limit of 15 or 20 I don't remember, but they were flying every 9 minutes and it was great fun. There were more new prizes too, some lovely items and not just new clothing.

The fun has gone out of Winterfest for me this year.
