Default Webkinz Insider Updates Rare Items Display!

A new front page story has been added:

Webkinz Insider Updates Rare Items Display!

I've been wanting to update the rares display for a very long time on WI and just never could find a way that was as visually-pleasing as I wanted and uncomplicated enough for manual entry. I finally broke down and spent the last few days on coding a new rare entry and notice generation script!

Click the image to open in full size.

Now, a WI staff member needs to only enter the Curio Shop rare data once and the system takes care of the rest, with a nice graphical display! Our Curio Shop Tracking Tool is also integrated into this new entry mode, so that data will become useful to everyone once again as well.

A few functions that you may not notice at first. The name of each rare item can be found by putting your mouse over the image in question. The rares for the entire day will be visible until the clock in that time zone turns to midnight, so members can see if they've missed any rares earlier in the day. Finally, whenever each time zone has a rare in the Curio Shop, the text above and below the image will turn red, giving everyone on the forum a heads up that something rare is available in the Curio Shop during that hour!

This is a great update! It's especially useful for newbies to WW, who might not know which item is which. Thanks so much for the update! And the highlighted in RED thing is super helpful as well. Rep!

Thank you, Justin for taking the time to incorporate all of these wonderful new features. I would still be trying to program all of that for the next hundred years. All of these features will be so helpful to all of us in so many ways.
