I'm sorry to hear that. I hope your luck improves. Have you tried various browsers? I know it shouldn't matter, but I do seem to have better luck with chrome this time.

Okay here is my thought on the "floatie" contests on this new site. I think in the past it was easy to get multiples of an item so to make it more difficult (and to not flood the trading rooms with these items). Ganz decided to make the items ones that could not be traded. Could also be the reason why the contest was not really advertised. OR Maybe because they had so many issues with past contests on the old site that they wanted to run a test (as some mentioned earlier) to see how glitchy it might be. Maybe in the future there might be more predictability to these contests after they see how a couple are going to run? Or maybe they are just tired of ppl. calling to complain the contests are not working for them for whatever reason...lol

I'm using firefox but when I open up a new window or something, newz seems to slow down. Should I try chrome? I know its VERY fast

The reason I ask is sometimes you can't see the ? when refreshing until it floats further right and if you don't have your screen zoomed out then you won't see it until it has floated out, so therefore you may appear it is randomly appearing on your screen without refreshing
I have had my screen zoomed out and a few minutes later one floats by, so I wonder? I kept thinking I was crazy, I had google chrome, firefox and aol open and I had checked them and moved on to the others and then there was a ? Happened 3 times so far. I have found some the normal way too.

I have been thinking along these same lines all day. You may have something here.

You're not able to trade them because they are eStore. There would be no point in buying things with eStore points if its trade-able. And my theory for the 'test' is that they just didn't post the rules when they just started it.

If you have google chrome installed on your computer, I would definitely give it a try. There are no guarantees it will work any better, but it can't hurt to check it out. Good luck!

Thank you! I'm useing the same browser that I used in the last couple of floaty contest and had no problems. I did get a couple earlier today when the codes were all messed up but have seen none since.

True, I am aware you can't trade estore items. But wouldn't you think if that were the case and they wanted to create a desire to complete a collection by going to the estore that they might advertise the contest? In the past they normally posted some little ad somewhere along with the rules. This time it is not posted visibly anywhere. I Only saw the rules someone posted on here. BTW where is the history on the newz site?
