Default New Curio Shop Glitch Discovered, Arte Seems Confused

A new front page story has been added:

New Curio Shop Glitch Discovered, Arte Seems Confused

Click the image to open in full size.

The recent Curio Shop update seems to have confused poor old Arte. As we all know, he doesn't seem to handle programming changes well, and this week's update was no exception.

When the Asian accounts hit 4pm just a few minutes ago, a time that Arte had been indicating he would have a Rare item for sale, members with regular Webkinz accounts discovered that they didn't have a Rare item in their Curio Shops. Members with Deluxe accounts, however, were able to find the Rare item, Manic Monitor, in the special Deluxe section of their accounts.

It seems that when Arte gives out his Rare information, he doesn't pay attention to whether the account is a regular account or a Deluxe account. As a result, he is telling players with regular accounts about Rare items that they won't get a chance to buy.

Hopefully the programmers at Ganz wil be able to sort out this glitch soon. In the mean time, please check out the Rare notice in our forum. We will bring you the latest information on what time Rare items will be for sale, which Rare items will be for sale, and whether the Rare items will be available on regular accounts or only on Deluxe accounts. You can even follow our Rare notices on Twitter @WIDOTCOM.

You are so right about Arte and the programming glitch. After three logoff and logon agains, we finally found the rare item. I am so very greatful that WI posted the way around this issue.

What language was he telling them in? LOL!!! Just kidding! I now know that Doug speaks Dutch, German and Italian....perhaps he could use those to tell us when the rares occur!

Yes, keep logging in and out and hopefully it will cycle through the items for you to see the rare. It works for some and not for others (non-deluxe members).

Thank you WI for keeping us updated. I have a regular account and hate to get excited over a rare and then not be able to get it.

Unhappy Re: New Curio Shop Glitch Discovered, Arte Seems Confused

Hmm, that's really a bummer. I don't collect rares anymore, but this might affect the sales too.

Maybe Arte is not supposed to tell whether it is for regular or deluxe. Ganz may be trying to entice more people to go deluxe??
