As disappointed as I am....If ganz doesn't make this up to us somehow it would be nice if we could figure out a way to have some kind of giveaway ( abiding to WI's rules) to make it up to all the disappointed children who just won't understand why they did this.
A couple of generous members have already contacted me to donate codes. If anyone has extras they would like to donate, they can PM the codes to me here on WI, or they can send the codes via e-mail to Justin at admin@webkinzinsider.com. If you've already got the costumes on your account, you can KinzPost them to WIGIFTZ.

We would be thrilled to receive anything you send. I'm sure we can come up with a good contest to give them away.

FroggyDoodle I appreciate your view point on this and applaud your country for never complaining about not being included in things. Maybe had more people known we could have stood beside you in talking to ganz that everyone should be able to participate. I also think that some people take it more seriously than you. Your view point makes sense but how many 5 year old children are going to understand that tomorrow morning? Its easy for you to explain your view point to a group of adults I don't think you'd get the same understanding from a group of disappointed children. Maybe had ganz put a small note on the bottom of this promotion that said (Canada only) or something of the sort they could have prevented alot of this confusion.
I'll play devils advocate....how many 5 year children do you think read the ads on the side of the WW screen?

If 5 year olds are aware of this it would be because their parents told them. I do not know a single kid who reads the ads on the side of the screen. Most people would be aware of this either through Twitter or through WI...and I'm pretty sure they are not 5 year olds....my kids are far older than that and knew nothing about this until I told them....and they are on WW every day.... As well, the rules were specifically laid out...I saw them...I typed that URL link in my address bar...that's why they gave it to us in the ad on WW...if people chose not to go to the URL address that stated those rules and assumed they could enter, well, is that Ganz fault????

Yes, it's just a bunch of pixels.
But, I've spent over 1,000 dollars on these pixels. I would like to participate in the contests. I'm not going all crazy/psycho on Ganz or anything, I just wish they would realize there are kids in the USA that would like to participate

OMG -- Couldn't of said it better. A big THANK YOU!!!

I feel in a way it is discriminating to us, just my opinion. All countries should be able to enjoy whatever promotion the rest get to be a part of. As for the prejudice.... I was more referring to the person who called us a bunch of spoiled yanks. Just because yank isn't as bad a word as others it was still meant in a derogatory way and I didn't appreciate it. And again, if people from other countries let their voices be heard about things like this that bother them, maybe something could have been done about it.

It's poor customer service, plain and simple. I'm just glad I don't have to answer phones at Ganz tomorrow.

Agreed.

I really do not understand how this contest is any different than the other Click-to-win contests in the past the the USA has taken part of.

I don't mind a celebration for Canada. But I'm curious if this contest will run again at a future date for other ww members. I tried to look the contest up in webkinz news and couldn't find it... I see no ads and no mention of the contest on webkinz news.

That's what I don't get. I'm also upset that the advertisements for the contest said that the rules would be posted on the Webkinz Newz site, and they never were. If it weren't for the fan sites, how many of us would know what was going on? It's only because we have Canadian members who spotted the Webkinz Newz ads that we were even able to view the rules.

I do agree with that comment, poor customer service...in the same way that not recognizing Canadian Thanksgiving is poor customer service....but we all know that they will never please everybody...and honestly, poor customer service is a far cry from discrimination or prejudice...or a situation bordering on illegal....or a situation resulting in a march to the office while picking up rocks on the way...I think there are a lot of upset people, but the extremism is actually scary. If people get this incensed over a contest for pixels...well, let me just say, it really is scary!
