If Ganz is so interested in kids going outside and getting exercise why do they continually offer contests that promote hours upon hours of sitting at the screen doing nothing but looking for floating objects?

What about Webkinz players who are bedridden and/or disabled and WebkinzWorld is their total way of having fun? It is good that Webkinz wants to support the President's Health Plan but don't discriminate against children who CAN'T participate, even though they would rather be outside than confined to their house.

Ok, it was neat when Nickelodeon did it, however we don't pay monthly for special access to Nickelodeon. (I mean, I guess we did, but that's not what I mean)

I think the IDEA is great. But maybe a little too far? I'm upset because I PAY for this. I own 33 pets and 1 hamster on one account, and Lord knows how many on the second. I am deluxe on my second account so I pay monthly for this. How dare they tell me I can't use something I pay for!

The better idea would have been to close the clubhouse and daily activities for those hours.

I agree. I know a few people who are in the hospital and the only thing they can do is be on webkinz.

I think it is great for Ganz to want kids to go outside and play, but this isn't great for me. I'm not on the East Coast so when I want to do my dailies WW will be down! . I think Ganz should have thought this through a little better.

Another good point. What if your sick that day and want to get on WW as well? I don't know Ganz should have thought this through

I disagree with Ganz's approach as well.

I agree with those who have already pointed out that we PAY to play on the site, that how we and our children spend our time is OUR perogative, that some people depend on the computer for entertainment and that Ganz should decrease the floating and seasonal clubhouse character hunting if they really want to encourage kids to limit their computer time.

Well, I'm not on EST either. For us in Hawaii, it will be 6pm Friday through 9am Saturday. I usually try to do my dailies at night (at least most of my accounts), after midnight KT/EST, and I get up early in the morning to finish up the rest. This schedule does NOT work well for me at all.

I remember last year's worldwide day of play it was raining really bad here and the kids were stuck inside anyway. As a parent, I think it is my responsibility to make sure my kids get out and play- not anyone elses

Oops, I wanted to make a correction to my post, but I can't edit here. I read this wrong. It's noon through 3pm, so that's only 6am through 9am on Saturday. I can live with that!

I don't need Ganz' "help" in this matter. I am pretty sure they are shutting down for three hours either for some kind of maintenance or even just to save a boatload of money by having all their servers off for that length of time. This is of course fine and their prerogative, but for goodness sake say so and spare us the preaching.

Webkinz World is a pay-to-play amusement site. They are not an "educational" site; they exist for fun and play, period. For a group of people who can't spell "lightning" correctly, who don't know that "dice" is plural, who think it's ok to teach children that you don't have to answer every letter you receive, for these people to now preach to us about the value of not being on the computer on a Saturday afternoon is more than a little insulting. I say to Ganz: fix your own house before you worry about the "needs" of MY house. Leave your site up and let ME decide - as a responsible parent - when my children should walk away from the computer. And what about the kids who can't "go out and play"? What are they supposed to do?

There are many, many other ways Ganz can make their site into a better learning tool if they really wanted to (which they so obviously do not wish to do), but they are still first and foremost a gaming site that we pay to use. That's all they are. "Shutting down so the kids can go outside"? Nonsense and really not their call to make.

OK, stepping off of my soapbox now. Sorry for the rant but they just make me so angry sometimes.

I agree 100% with Pengo! Since Ganz is "forcing" us off of their site, that we PAY the privilege to play on, are they going to refund me for "lack of playtime"? I think not. How DARE Ganz make this "choice" for me...for us. Why don't they just close the site down for three hours of maintenance to fix...REALLY FIX...all the stupid and never ending glitches that constantly plagues Webkinz World? Be honest! Don't pretend to really care about the children not playing outside enough. I mean, Ganz promotes a character that is a thief and a bully, so do they really expect me to be impressed that they want our children to get some fresh air outside? Please! Some of my friends only allow their children to play on the computer on weekends. During the week they are involved in after school sports, dance, band, doing homework, chores at home and such. The weekend is their time to play on the computer and enjoy video games. Shame on Ganz....again!
