Oh, I can certainly help with that! Goobers Lab is one that I like to play and I'm quite good at.

Thanks for this update Commodore! I'm so happy to see we have many good players here. I haven't tried this game much but I'll be practicing now so I can at least help contribute.

The Friday lag is annoying. Once the contest is posted, it should be playable.

I was rereading last week's WebkinzNewz article about the contest (there's nothing about it posted today, strange) and noticed this:
Quote:
Saturday and Sunday: Players can help complete the challenge after officially entering the contest by clicking a button in the “Communal Contest” section of the Kinzville Times.
I wonder how many scores won't count because people don't know about this rule?

It would be nice if someone with the privileges to do so could modify the front page post to include this information, encouraging people to continue to sign up if they haven't yet, since I'm sure that there are far more people than just that one poster who were confused on this issue.

There also seem to be people confused about the nature of the contest: that all of the participants together are attempting to earn 6 million points over the weekend. No one has to earn that individually.

I tried to sign up both of my daughter's account's last night by voting for the prize, but it was glitched and I the vote (and thus the registration for the contest) wouldn't go through. But this morning I went and registered her for the contest, so anyone should be able to register still, unless there is some sort of glitch (which there might be with this being a new feature and this being WW.)

Good luck everyone!

Sooo - with an average of maybe 6000 per person, 6,000,000,000 points divided by that would be a grand total of 1 million games played.

That's not impossible. and I know we have some really good players that top that average.

And just think, you do earn cash for playing the game too. So that's just more incentive.
As big as WW is, a million games of Goobers Lab in 2 days is an awful lot of games. I hope we can make it!

Oh dear, I just realized that, LOL! Poor kids are probably going to be staying up with their eyes glued to the screen..."Just 5 billion 999 thousand more points, Mom!"

I woke up this morning at about 5 AM, looked in the communal contest section, read Goober's Lab, points, and 6 million...seemed reasonable. Of course, my eyes were fuzzy, and I didn't have my glasses on, and as my eyes were adjusting, my fuzzy morning brain stated the obvious and said, "Wait a second, that's not six zeroes, that's more."


I do think that 6 billion points in the amount of time given is a wee bit unreasonable, does anyone agree? Even with the multitude of people playing on WW, I'm sure at least 5 percent of them will have forgotten to check back for the goal in the newspaper (some may have thought the prize selection was just a random survey), and another 5 percent probably are going to play the game once and not more.

Good idea! My average score is 14021.

On the Webkinz Newz page where they previewed the Communal Contest, the sample contest goal was to get 1,00,000,000 grocery bags in the Grocery Clerk job with the prize choices being 2,000 KC or PrizeKlaw or Winter Wonderland Bed. I'd like to have had the choice of 2000KC!!

Default Re: New Communal Contest - Goober's Lab Challenge!

I agree, Toadie! I think the prizes should have been a little better; perhaps these are just small prizes to get started. It's my hope that Ganz "evaluates" how we did, and decides that for goals as big as these, maybe we need a little more motivation...hint hint. ^_^
