JUSTIN!!!! thank you so much for putting the link and update to the story you ran yesterday, to which i responded. i am so happy that you took our feelings seriously, and that you explained a bit more what happened.

i can say that without i would have had to give up on long ago. i know you take your reporting very seriously, as you should, and i know that it is very hard to report when not much information is given to you.

i am sorry if my words came accross wrong to you and you thought i had a pitchfork and torch............. i never even have gotten a tiki torch on the vacation island........... lol. i know you have a delicate balancing act between what goes on in the forum and what ganz might like.

it is always my belief that it sometimes helps more to say 'no i dont like this' rather than merely thanking someone just as a matter of being polite.......... i could have dont that but i really believed it was important to say i didnt like that the story was pulled.

thank you for all you do for the forum justin. you can throw a marshmallow at me if youd like.

thank you for giving us the link back.

Thank you, Justin, so much for updating this thread by adding the link to the original and for explaining about the email.

I also thank members, like BASMAT, who helped to make WI aware of how important it was to us to have that original thread available. I couldn't find where FIA had originally obtained the thread. I had spent hours trying to find it.

When the front page story was first removed, I tried to find it through my posts. My posts from that thread were gone too. I was thankful when an explanation appeared later on the front page. But reading that new page without reference to the original was disturbing. Thank you for making it easier for all of us to communicate and have all the information available to us.

By the way, my posts have returned. Why did the posts disappear to begin with if the thread was still in WI somewhere? I'm fairly new to WI and a little confused.

Thank you.

When the story was pulled from the front page, it put the comment thread in the trash can... I pulled it out when I posted the link to the original thread, so the comment thread is still in this section (just not stuck to the top) so all your posts will re-appear since the thread is no longer in the trash

I think more specifics on this story would be helpful. The statement on the front page as it is leaves too much out, what was inaccurate and what did ganz say about it? Was the caller incorrect or was staff at ganz wrong or both? It appears-how I read this story is that the supervisor has contacted wi to point out the discrepancy but then didn't take the time to enlighten us all about what is right. I can’t read the whole thread right now but I would like to request some more information of what we know please? Thanks for your consideration and hope everyone is having a wonderful saturday!

Well I had the same experience when I called about the jelly bean challange and a couple of other dailies that won't load or that lock me out every time I try to play. I was told they were aware but had no idea when it might be fixed. Left me with the clear impression that it was not a real big priority for them right now Can't wait to find out more!

Ganz is a busy place

I am sure with the help of and the Creative Director of Ganz This will all be put to rest soon.
The original post was carefully written and had notes thoughtfully taken and submitted by our WI member. When it was posted here, I am sure there was no malice or ill intention involved. I personally do not believe the fault lies within the messenger. Which we as human tend to automatically lend blame to.

I have a feeling that there was some misinformation given or interpreted by the Ganz employee that the Creative Director saw and that is why it was taken down from the front page. No one from a large company like Ganz likes to see wrong information being given to their loyal customers. I bet he will be talking to the Customer Service Rep. to clarify.

What is very interesting to me is that the Creative Director of Ganz checks with this site (yay Justin!) and it quite concerned about the information we have and generally our comments and concerns as well. We have proven to be quite influential as a group in maintaining the Quality Control for the Ganz company!!

Yay for .

I wonder if Ganz and the Creative Director didn't like how the supervisor said some things weren't a priority. Not good publicity for your users to realize you don't care enough to fix the glitches.
