Default Re: Webkinz Players Struggle with Nafaria's Star Trading Feature *UPDATE*

After two days of no show from Nafaria she wanted three stars for the potion which three days ago I was offered but stole my stars instead, I had to say yes to trade as I dont know when and if this will be available after this month....thank goodness she gave me the potion.

This has been working great for me and I hope it will work for others, too!
Thanks for this tip. We've been doing the Star Search first in hopes of having exactly what she wants if she shows up. Starting tomorrow I'll just wait for her.

I dont know what is going on in the above duplicate postings...try to fix it and it keeps duplicating...sorry!!

Ok, guess I was hitting quote instead of modify...but now the modify button is gone from that post and I can't fix it....she's now shown up on 4 accounts in a row that I've logged into and not played star search....bad bad fairy, bad bad programing!

Trouble with random is that it never seems random. It comes in clumps. So You flip a coin - 50-50 chance of getting heads or tails. Getting heads once has no bearing on the next flip. you could get heads 5 times (or more) in a row before ever seeing tails. Or you could see tails many times before ever seeing heads.

Extend this to NoFairia, And the pregrammers seems to have given her too high a chance of stealing stars, probabluy thinking about the averages, not about how random things clump. Better, if they want her to steal stars and to limit the prizes she gives out - onlly a 5% or so chance to actually steal a star, a 25% chance to rudely refuse to deal, and the rest - let her trade - it is for kids after all. Chances are all kids would be stolen from at some point, but overall the even would be more fun. Better still - let Nafaria be rude (she is a bad fairy after all) even when giving a star, let her refuse trades, but don't have her steal stars from children.

Also, when putting randomness in, they need to allow plenty of time to allow the collection of all prizes in spite of the odds going against you. Like someone said before, 30 days to collect 20 prizes, not enough time.

That brings me to another point that is bothering me more and more about WW - a feeling of elitism, that those who have rare, hard to get, or real world money expensive items are better somehow than others who enjoy/have w-shop and outlet items. When they make it near impossible for most players to get something, they add to the elitism that seems to be forming.

Thank goodness elitism is not a problem here! WI is such a wonderful friendly place.

You make a very Good point. elitism does seem to be a problem is WW. When ever I go to the trading room and there's someone there with shuts, wacky, witch hat or plumpy they make themselves seem better then everyone else. for example only talking to people with shuts or plumpy, not trading with anyone, and ignoring you comletely unlees you have something they want.

Different account now. She showed up twice but disappeared, even though I clicked on her (kind of like the leaf disasters so far. Does Ganz think kids can click this quickly?!?!? )

Third time she showed was playing jumbleberry fields. Clicked on her and got puff of smoke again. Have not played star search yet. And my next scheduled leaf also did not show up. Perhaps we do absolutely nothing till we get her to talk to us.

And is it just one prize a day per account, if one is lucky enough to get her to even commence trading?
