I have not even come across a floater yet and I have been refreshing for what seems like forever - it has been over :30 minutes.

ABOUT THE MYSTERY MAGNOLIA FLOATER CONTESTS

How do I participate?

When you load up any page on the Webkinz Newz website, there is a chance that you will activate a "floater". This is an icon image that literally "floats" (wanders aimlessly) around the webpage. For the Mystery Magnolia contest, it looks like this:

Click the image to open in full size.

Note that it will never float OFF your screen, it will always stay on the part of the webpage that you can see. Even if you scroll up or down the page, the floater will stay in your vision. It will also never go away.

If you find one of these, CLICK ON IT! A new window with a fill-out form will pop up. The form looks like this:

Click the image to open in full size.

As you can see, you will have to acknowledge having read the contest rules; give an email address (this is where the feature code will be emailed); answer the skill-testing question (so far I've only seen the same math question and the answer is 1); type in the letters and numbers you see in the verification image; and submit the form. Ganz will then send a feature code to the email you specified in the form.

What do I do with the feature code that gets emailed to me?

Log into Webkinz World and go to the Code Shop. There you will be able to enter the code. Some of the codes given out as prizes will give you a Mystery Magnolia Caring Valley sapling on your account, and some of the codes given out as prizes will give you a Whirlawisk recipe food (megastove, unsolved). I'm not sure what the ratio of saplings to Whirlawisks is - I've been quite lucky; out of the three codes I've entered so far, two of them were for saplings; but other WI members have reported getting Whirlawisk after Whirlawisk (in some cases, after entering more than 30 codes).

What if I want more than one feature code?

You can certainly find the floater more than once, but you have to use a different email address every time. If you run out of email addresses, you can always use free email services like Gmail to make new ones. WI user gomommu41 also suggested hushmail as a quick and easy way to create more emails, although this service will eventually freeze out your computer if you open up too many accounts. WI member Oddmeister suggested Mailinator, which is a free service which acts as a catchall.

Hey! I found the floater and submitted the form but I didn't get emailed a feature code!

There are a few possibilities as to what might have happened. The first is that you entered the wrong email address. The second is that you were emailed the code, but your email software interpreted it as spam; so check your spam folder to make sure it didn't accidentally get dumped into there. The third possibility is that your email servers are a little slow and it could take a few minutes for it to come in. WI user jellytab experienced this on some of her accounts. She said:

Quote:
About timing of receiving codes: On my Yahoo and aol accounts, it came instantly. On my other accounts, some have come instantly, and some have had delays of about twenty minutes to half an hour. It seems to be my server that is slow. According to the time-stamp, they are sending them all immediately, but it just takes a while for it to show up in my in-box. I know that some of you have been asking how long it takes, so I thought I would give some perspective on that.
The fourth possibility is that your email server blocks anything that comes in from Webkinz - but that's not very likely.

I can't find a floating image!

If you DON'T see a floating image, and your Webkinz Newz page has completely loaded up (seriously, wait for the little "I'm still loading" animation on your browser to COMPLETELY stop), refresh the page and try again. Warning: It might take a whole big bunch of tries before you find one. I've started keeping track of how many times I've had to refresh a Webkinz Newz page before seeing another floater, and so far it's averaging out to 60 tries each (for 9 finds). The worst was 138. This particular contest makes the floater tough to find.

One trick you might try to make it easier is to open up multiple tabs in your browser, each with a Webkinz Newz page loaded. Then cycle through them to refresh. This means that while one tab is waiting to fully load up, you can go and refresh another tab (unless there's a floater there, of course!); then while that tab is waiting to fully load up, you can go and refresh yet another tab (unless there's a floater!); and so-on. By the time you get back to the first tab, it should be fully finished loading and you can check it for a floater. This lets you do many more tries in the same amount of time as it would take to wait for a single page to completely load up.

Another possibility is that you're not seeing the floaters because you don't live in an area that's eligible for the contest. It's open only to residents of Canada and the USA except not for residents of Quebec, New York and Florida. (Please don't get mad at Ganz for that; it has to do with laws about contests that those provinces/states have.)

It's too hard to find that floating icon! Please send me the URL of the fill-out form instead.

Sorry, that won't work. Copying the URL of the form page and then trying it again in another window gives you a "page not found" error.

I'm going to get a bunch of codes and KinzPost the prizes to all my friends!

THIS WILL NOT WORK WITH THE TREE PRIZES. The Whirlawisk can be KinzPosted, but neither the Mystery Magnolia sapling nor the tree you can turn it into are sendable by KinzPost. So there's no sense entering the feature code on your account if you're not planning to keep it; you'll be better off just emailing the code to your friend so they can enter it into their account themselves.

I'd like to donate the feature codes I'm getting to WI. How do I do that?

For the fill-out form that pops up whenever you click on a floater, you can use any email address that ends with "@webkinzinsider.com". I personally like to use "Jackal1@webkinzinsider.com", "Jackal2@webkinzinsider.com", and so-on. That way it helps me keep track of what email addresses I've already used (since the contest doesn't allow the same email address more than once), and the WI folks can tell who it came from.

Maybe I've been at this so long I've gone crazy, but I wonder if the code can tell you what you're going to get? They all start with W22, so maybe the fourth digit/letter tells what the code is- tree or drink. Does anyone else think this is a valid theory?

You can get as many objects as you want, the catch is that each email address can only be used once.

I have found it on Google Chrome, but sure, give it a shot, you might have better luck on a different browser. Mostly I've been using Firefox.
