W Shop Room Theme Being Retired to Deluxe on Jan 9! *UPDATE*
 
A new front page story has been added:

W Shop Room Theme Being Retired to Deluxe on Jan 9! *UPDATE*

Rumors are rife and speculations are flying in Webkinz World following an announcement in Webkinz Newz today! Ganz has announced that one room theme will be retired from the W Shop and moved to Deluxe Only. The room theme being retired, will join the Enchanted Train Station theme as a theme available only to Deluxe members.

This change is expected to take place during the overnight maintenance in Webkinz World, on Wednesday January 9. Let us hope that this will clear some room in the Webkinz World warehouses for a new room theme available to everyone!

*UPDATE*: It's now January 9 and we can confirm that the City Styling Theme, also known as the Mocha Theme, has been moved to a Deluxe Only status. You can still see this entire theme in the W Shop, but like the Enchanted Train theme, you can only purchase it if you are Deluxe. Read more to see a picture of this theme.

Click to find out more...


Thanks to our many Webkinz Insider members' detective work, we have a possible clue to the identity of the W Shop Theme being retired. Our best guess - and this is a GUESS only - is that the City Styling Theme, also known as the Mocha Theme, is the one slated for retirement. There is no guarantee that this theme will be the one to retire... but if you are planning on buying one of each item, this will cost you 11,185 KinzCash. Here you can see the Theme Preview for this mocha and pink theme, which has been available to everyone in the W Shop since 2009:

I am so thankful that this theme will be going Deluxe instead of full out retiring.
Now I'll have to gain those rugs and lamps that compliment any room from friends or the clubhouse. :)

Why!!! This is so sad! I was hoping to save the theme for a girl's bedroom. :'(

Ganz likes to keep in touch with WI findings, and they more than likely also noticed it themselves and removed it to keep it a secret.

Thank you for the info, Lily!

Great, great an old theme now for deluxe members only. Why not add a new theme?

Once again Ganz takes something away that was once both Deluxe and regular. I am now for sure that Ganz is turning into a sight like Club penguin, where you can't do anything fun unless your a deluxe member. I'm very dissapointed in them.

I'm hoping this means we'll be getting a new theme! That would be awesome.

New room themes have always been a favorite thing about Webkinz for me. Always get excited for them, even if there isn't much of the theme that I use. Making lateral room theme shifts from Regular to Deluxe is kind of a bummer, because there isn't that "new" creative idea there.

NO !! :'(

That was one of the best themes ever!!

Sad, this was my favorite theme :'(
I'm trying to buy a bunch of items. But I need more kinzcash :P

The train station theme was deluxe only right from the start but I guess this is better than it completely retiring.

Lily Padz in the arcade awards a lot of kinzcash. :) Or Quizzy's.

How long before The Wheel of Wow becomes Deluxe!! Deluxe has taken over the Arcade and the W Shop. Webkinz used to be fun. I could go on vacation. Now I cannot. I am not Deluxe. I confess to being not able to afford Deluxe. My money goes to the everyday real bills, food and gas. I cannot afford Deluxe which is money for nothing really.

I know they want more money and people have it. I do not. I am just a Gramma whose kids gave me this pet. They live in Idaho and I live in Calif. I play games with them online in our rooms. I love Tile Towers. I do my daylies and I cover for them when they cannot log on.

I just wish this push for Deluxe would just STOP~!~!:(

This is unfair. I understand that Deluxe people have advantages, since they pay more, which I can live with but that I think is morally wrong. Webkinz is supposed to be fun, not have "social classes". Ganz is going to far. From regular members who might have been playing for years and years, staying with them all the way through, they take away our games, our vacation island, now our room themes. They are slowly removing some of the few rights we have left. The Deluxe people shouldn't be able to take away the things we've enjoyed for practically forever. This is not right. This is unfair. If Ganz wants to favor the Deluxe members and take advantage of people who invested a lot of money and time into this site since they were small, but don't think it's worth it to pay 50 dollars a year for a pile of extra pixels, then they should make two different sites. This is just not working out anymore. This is unfair. Ganz has gone too far.

All these changes to WW. Hope Ganz adds a new theme for non-deluxe members. :):dalm:

I guess that's just the push I was waiting for to switch into lurking mode. Log in once a day, get unique prizes when available, do select dailies, perform the best-paying job, log out through Carnival. I have another three tagged plushes to last me a while - definitely no plans to buy more! - but in a month or two, I'll probably get bored enough to leave WW altogether. Is that what you wanted, Ganz?

Re: W Shop Room Theme Being Retired to Deluxe on Jan 9!
 
What?!?!?!? This is my favorite room theme besides the Santakinz Theme! At least I'm Deluxe, but really? At least they're not retiring it completely.

Hey, the good news is, maybe they're going to make a new theme. They usually retire one when they decide to start making a new one. So, you never know. Maybe they'll make a theme like this using an aqua and black color scheme! I would love that.

I use the Shaggy White Rug and the Frosted-Top Dining Table and Dazzling Granite Counter, as well as the Mocha Squares Flooring & Mocha Swirls Wallpaper, and the Tri-Mirro Mocha Dresser.

Happy Shopping, all!

GANZ is a company and has to make money. When there is a down in sales on plushies, which I don't see people buying all that often anymore, they have to think of something else. So, then came Deluxe. They have to make a profit since they spend a lot of money making adorable plush Webkinz so the non-Deluxe members can still get online and have fun. You don't have to pay fifty dollars a year. You can pay monthly if you wanted too. If you love this room theme so much, then just get Deluxe! Or at least get a one month membership and try it out. I don't think GANZ is creating "social classes". ::) This is a kid's site and they're not going that far. When I go to the Club-house and trade with someone and all they put up is W-shop items and I'm putting up all this really cool rare stuff I don't think, "Oh, they're in a lower class then I am. They must be poor." :nope: That's insane! And I don't think, "But I'm in the high society because I'm Deluxe." We don't need to get all protest-y and start a WWIII. I think you're taking this too far.

If you don't think Ganz is creating different "social classes" in WebKinz World, then you need to think again. Look at what is happening here. Games and items that have been available to ALL since WW started, are now only for the "Upper Class" (Deluxe)! Creating NEW games and items that are for Deluxe only is one thing. Taking what was once for EVERYONE, is a whole other matter! I can no longer play certain arcade games that I loved to play because NOW they are for the "Deluxe" only! How is that fair? The Deluxe members could already play them! Why take those games away from the non-Deluxe members? For what purpose? Yes....I can afford to be a Deluxe member, but I don't wish to be. I just enjoyed buying an occasional pet and playing in WW to relax and have a little fun. The price of the pets should be more than enough to keep WW up and running. Please remember that Ganz does much more than just make and sell Webkinz plushies. That company does not need Webkinz World to go all Deluxe in order to survive! Personally, I think it's just them being mean. They don't care about loyal fans. We really mean nothing to them. I just added a new pet to each of my two accounts. Like several others having posted, I think my time in WW is coming to an end. I really don't want to stop playing, but taking away from the normal players (Lower Class) and giving what was once free to all, to the Deluxe players (Upper Class), is a little too much like REAL life! Yes, this is just a game...but just what is it really teaching here? I think Ganz is saying...In order to get all the really good goodies, you have to be Deluxe! We will take away from you and give to those who already get special things!

THAT
is what I truly believe is happening here!
