Default Re: Starting Jan 19, 2011, Webkinz Accounts will No Longer Expire!

The last time I adopted a new pet on my account was February 2, 2010. I got a new Webbie for Christmas this year and was planning to save it for just before Feb. 2 to extend my account for another full year, before I read this article. Interesting thing, though......I went to the My Pets section and it has these dates: Account opened: 5/14/08. Full Membership: 5/1/11. Somehow I gained 3 months in the transition!

I agree with previous members who predict that unless members purchase a new pet before their accounts expire, they will lose "full" membership privileges and will be reduced to a "limited" membership.......perhaps only what is offered in the pop up menu not including the map to Kinzville (which offers everything on the site). The only way to regain full access is to adopt another pet or go Deluxe.

I think this is an acceptable compromise. Those that don't want to spend the money on adopting pets or going Deluxe can have their account for free, but just won't be able to do everything. Remember, lots of features on WW are "pay to play" anyway (you have to purchase a figurine, Zum, etc. to be granted access). Those who don't want to pay don't get to play those areas.

I personally don't have an issue with adopting one $15 pet per year to keep my membership "full". I'm sure this is how I will continue in future years.

Perhaps they'll have a maintenance early this morning (it is Wednesday after all - maintenance usually only occurs on Wednesdays) and then it will kick in...

Just as I suspected WW is now down for maintenance I'm sure we'll see the update when it comes back up

I also have been a little concerned about what this can mean -- however wouldn't it be terribly short sighted of Ganz to start closing down WW? After all I can guarantee most people here wouldn't consider buying one of their new Tail Town figures if they stopped supporting WW, something we already have a lot of $$$ invested in. I really don't think there is cause for worry.

Wonder if there will be any fun things in the wshop after maintenance.

Is this a fun new theme that I have missed hearing about?

I think that allowing users to access expired accounts can only renew interest for those players who may have stopped using the site because of not being able to adopt new pets. I know there are many younger people on this site who only use WI for it's other features such as RP'ing and to run graphics shops or chat with friends on the DCT, but now if those members can use their accounts it can only be a good thing for driving up interest in WW! I don't think they'll shut down the site Plus I think that the estore sales are something that have very little expense since they are not making real product and the estore sales will keep the programmers at Ganz paid for a long time! I hope anyway!!!

Thanks Cocoa! That is just what I was thinking. Occasionally I notice some maintenance starts at 5am, and well its after 5am so they must be working now especially since the log in screen is blank.
