****PARENTAL WARNING****

I just went to Twitter to see what this is all about. I have already encountered FOUL LANGUAGE attached to webkinzday. Remember, this is not an age protected site. It is not meant for kids.

It is too bad that Ganz idea of a Webkinzday of celebration is only being celebrated on an adult site.

I will not be joining this site to celebrate with Ganz.

Here's what Webkinz Newz says:

Sign in to Twitter between 8 pm and 9 pm EST on April 29, 2010 and follow the hash tag #webkinzday!
Our Creative Director will be online throughout the party ready to answer your questions! Just send your tweets to @webkinz and he’ll get back to as many as he can!

I think you just so a search for #webkinzday in the white search box. When it comes up just click the green button to the right that says "save this search". If you want to ask a question during the party just send it to @webkinz

I just had my son explain this to me so I hope I can relay what he told me. On your twitter page at the top is a box underneath the words "What's happening" To get a message to Ganz you type in "@webkinz and then your message/question". The only people that see your post is Ganz and the people following you. If Ganz replies, the only people that see the answer is you and the people following you. If you put "#webkinzday" somewhere in your post then people can search for that phrase and see the posts. Still not clear if you get the question and answer in one post though. I hope this makes alittle sense. I really don't care for twitter but I'm willing to give it a shot just to let Ganz know I'm not a happy camper

I also found out that that the only way to see the question and the answer is if you are following the person who asked the question and the person giving the answer.

How did twitter get to be so popular when it is so confusing??

ROFL!! Oh DragonBird! I knew I liked you alot for more than just the rockin' graphics you do! I am also a Survivor nut! I'm guessing you have also noticed how they seem to ALWAYS put the wheel of deluxe on every Thursday at 8pm!! (during Survivor!) I won't be at my house, since we watch over at my mom's house, so attending this twitter party will be nearly impossible, unfortunately.

Couldn't agree with you more, sara9894! As much as I want to let the creative director know how we feel about this deluxe family membership situation, I have a feeling there will be many others on keeping his ears ringing in my place.

We need to STOP this!!!

Ganz is getting away from kid-friendly / family-friendly. How? How about this: (to name a few)

Alot of great items are estore only - kids don't have a chance to even trade kinzcash for e-points
Looking for characters (goober, ghost, ms birdy) which is extremely frustrating for us adults - let alone the kids (which my kids gave up looking)
Contests on utube (which is not IMHO elementary school-age friendly).
Now, they are having parties/giveaways on twitter.
And, of course the biggie - cancelling the deluxe family memberships !!!

I am seriously considering giving up ALL of our webkinz accounts.
Perhaps this is a wake-up call that I could be doing better things with my time (and my family)
I'm sure my kids will be disappointed initially - but once I explain it to them, I know they are smart enough to realize greed from Ganz when they see it - and to realize that their loyalty is not being considered, so why keep supporting a company like that?
Summer is coming. Nice weather. Time outdoors with family and friends. Vacations.
Yes, perhaps this was the wake-up call I needed to get off the computer and off Webkinz.
I am so on board with your feelings here webcrazy, it's just not funny. I agree - "perhaps this was the wake-up call I needed to get off the computer and off Webkinz" Could not have said it better myself!

Yup! Looks like there are many of us Survivor fans that are also hooked on WK and yet our skin is crawling over this whole disgraceful deluxe family membership situation.

Happy Webkinz Day Everyone! For whatever it's worth in Estore points these days.
