Just looking at the sample math problem that was shown here briefly, you can see this contest was not for kids! Looked like algebra to me!

Recess, however, is definitely for the younger ones - the games are simple and the prizes are not overwhelming, but they are frequent!

Fortunately I was able to get a rug first thing this morning. I did however have the issue with the security code. I just kept re-entering the information until it finally went through. It took about 15 tries. Thanks to a friend I was able to get one for both of my kids. I was amazed that the code appeared in an email so soon because it said wait 24 hours.

I do believe that the website was not clear enough as to how the contest would work. I was waiting on the main page for the flying rug and then I got bored staring at the same screen so I decided to look through the website. That is when I spotted the rug on the upper left hand side of the screen.

Hopefully when the contest is ran again they make it more clearly for people to know what to look for.

As far as the starting time goes, they probably thought 8am was ok since most of the parents would probably be entering for the kids anyway because of the email address needed. They also probably thought if they ran it until this evening it would allow school kids a chance to get one as well. The one thing they didn't think of is how fast the 5000 would go and most kids wouldn't even have a chance. I am just happy that my work does not restrict what I do so that I can come here and to WW.

For those of you who were not able to get a rug, I wish you the best of luck when they do open the contest again. Hopefully it will be better set up and easier to find and receive a rug.

I was able to get a code, but the code shop is telling me that it is already used!

This may be what the "technical difficulty" is - they want to make sure that kids have a shot. Would be better to say that they stopped it to make sure that kids could participate, but still - at least they're still doing it.

Or, there's a second option - the codes actually do not work, and it's less of a monetary issue (i.e. people stop buying the Webkinz because of one silly code issue) to postpone the contest than to continue it and have 5,000 or so people upset the rug code doesn't work.

Of course, to me it's neither here nor there - I've won or traded for most of the items I like in the rooms, so I probably wouldn't have gone for it anyway.

Lana, that is good information to know! I think perhaps whatever server has your account is not quite updated yet. Everyone's account is stored in a different place, and sometimes not everything is successfully updated at once. Hopefully you'll be able to play in recess pretty soon. Meanwhile, try restarting your computer and see if that helps.

Good luck!

Oh I have a better one for you! I got the rug code sent to my email address and tried to enter it...only to find out that it was a used code! No one had access to my email but me, so I have to assume that they gave out the same code twice! I thought I had won, looks like someone else did because when I tried to enter it the website was down and I couldn't sign on. When I finally could, someone else had already entered the code. So I called Ganz, I talked to a man who could not for the life of him understand English and messed the code up so many times that I think I reread it at least six times. Then he said his computer wasn't working, named the person who entered my code and then asked me to call back in an hour and hung up on me. Furious! I tried clicking five different rugs and got the same error message again and again. I sat there for two hours and finally got one to go through, and now this??? I am fed up!
