It was probably good that you didn't join. I am not sure if I will join in the future if it is on Twitter. There was a lot of really bad language being thrown around by various "outside" users.

Most (if not all) of my tweets during the party did NOT go through because Twitter has resource constraint issues. In the morning and early afternoon, none of my tweets were getting through and then about an hour or two before the party, they started going through and then during the party most of them did NOT go through. I don't believe that any of my @webkinz questions got to the Creative Director because Twitter was NOT working properly (it is a known bug/issue with Twitter) and even though the Creative Director (or someone from @webkinz) said (in a tweet) that they would all get through if you had @webkinz, that just was NOT the case because of a known Twitter bug. The only way for him to see them all is if he was following us (and he was NOT).

A little before the party started, the host of the party was made aware of the situation of tweets not going through and I think she may have picked some of the winners from her RSVP list on her website (I believe this to be true because I won a prize and I know that almost all of my tweets (and my niece's tweets) were NOT getting through during the party). She was also there tweeting, hours before the party, so she knew I was there trying to tweet because I believe she checked my twitter page and saw my tweets on my page, but she did not see them on the #webkinzday tweet chat way before the party started.

Next time (if there is a next time), they need to do this on the Webkinz Newz site or somewhere that has filters for bad words and somewhere that we can get user help if things aren't working properly--or perhaps some place that DOES work properly; AND they need to test it out FIRST; AND they need to inform their customer service reps of everything that is going on.

Thank you. I didn't think my tweets were going through either. They weren't going through in the morning and then they started working a few hours before the party, too. I don't really understand twitter. It moved really fast, too. Congratulations!

SnowCrystal, don't feel bad. I am also registered on her site, got two of my questions answered and all of my posts went through, but I didn't win anything. Winners were chosen at random from people who posted anything during the party. I do think a better job could have been done at blocking people who were using foul language or writing things that were anti-Webkinz. Not only was it annoying and inappropriate, but those people seem to have had the same chance at winning things as we did. (Someone please correct me if I'm wrong!)

I agree, Twitter was NOT the right place and since it trended up it got exposure but the wrong type those of us who were there for the right reasons wanted to ask qusetions and hopefully win a prize weren't even seen due to the other traffic and comments from people who cliecked from it not tredning. Time to go delete my new twitter account

You are totally right about those people having the same odds of winning. Apparently (I just checked the twitter @webkinz posts) one of the party guests writes "When I Try to make an Account its asking for a 6 or 8 Digit # and I don't have one, I have never heard of the Toy Till the Party".

Apparently, this was someone that won a code from the party (a code that is supposed to be entered into the code shop in WW).

I am still really unhappy that they had this party on Twitter. Since Twitter was experiencing problems, not everyone's tweets were going through. @Webkinz couldn't even get their #webkinzday tweets to show up. Webkinz was aware of this before the party. For that reason alone, I don't think it was fair to give out prizes the way they did (and I am saying this even though I won one of the best prizes). The topic was going so fast and of the people whose tweets weren't going through, I am sure that they weren't aware of their tweets not showing up (there were no error messages). There was no help available from either Twitter nor Webkinz (as a matter of fact, Twitter is blocked for Webkinz's Customer Service reps).

Using Twitter was not a fair way to distribute the prizes. The host was wonderful and I mean no disrespect to her.
