Default Webkinz Newz Articles Not Updating for Most Players *UPDATE*

A new story entry has been added:

Webkinz Newz Articles Not Updating for Most Players *UPDATE*

Quote:
Click the image to open in full size.If you have been wondering why the articles on the Webkinz Newz haven't updated in the past two days, you're not alone. Based on reports we are getting from our members, it appears that there is a glitch affecting that site right now. Some members are getting updated articles, including clues for Persephone's current contest, and others haven't had a new article since the Bookshelf Makeover on the 16th.

At this point, we are not certain why some computers are affected and others aren't, but we have discovered a guaranteed way to fix it. If you have a Webkinz Newz account, log on to it. The moment you do, all of the articles will be updated. If you don't have a Webkinz Newz account, you can continue to check on Webkinz Insider for all of the latest news.

In a related note, those players who are not seeing the new articles are continuing to see floating tour vans. However, just like over the weekend, players clicking on the vans are getting a message that the event has expired.

And, for those of you hunting for Spree Bonus Rolls today, keep an eye out for a blank ad with a tiny red "x" in the top-left corner. Those are the advertisements that are giving out the free rolls.

UPDATE (12:40pm): Based on member reports, it appears the glitch has been fixed!

Thanks for this report! I'm still seeing the van and I haven't noticed if I can't see new articles (since I don't read them). I'm also having a VERY difficult time finding Hailley. I used to find her in less than 10 minutes. Now it's taking at least 30. Hope this gets resolved soon.

Oh my gosh I thought it was just me! I noticed my front page hasn't changed and wondered what in the world is going on. Whatever, just another glitch.

My 4 accounts are not seeing the up dates! If you go to contests and fun on the front page of WKN and click "more" you will see the new up dates!

I am now able to see the Spree advertisement, so it might be visible now.

Strange about the non-updating.

I found if you go to preferences you can delete your webkinz cookies, the new front page will then come up.

I have all the old ads too. Thought they were starting to get a little lax! lol... hope it's fixed soon. don't think it's anything about our computers as much as their servers.

For my Firefox, the 'broken image' symbol that you need to click to find the Spree ad is a small box with a 'ripped' piece of paper symbol.

I've found that iif you log into a webkinz newz account, it helps with a lot of events, so it's worthwhile getting one (plus if the webkinz site is down you can still earn W by playing in the newz arcade.)
