Normally, we don't make any posts when Webkinz is down, as it is usually part of a scheduled maintenance or a short interruption in play. Unfortunately, the Webkinz World servers stopped responding last night around midnight Kinz Time, according to AnotherKinzDad's thread in our Webkinz Insider forum.
We haven't seen any tweets from Ganz's official twitter account and aren't sure what the cause of the issue is. Since this is an extended downtime, we wanted to keep all of you in the loop so that you don't think you're alone when Webkinz World and Webkinz Newz won't load for you and webkinz.com is down.
It appears to be some kind of misconfiguration between the server groups that Ganz has dedicated to Webkinz World and Webkinz Newz, as the servers respond initially and loads some code to indicate that the servers are overloaded. Unfortunately, the information never makes it to the browser and you get either a blank page, broken image, or are told that your browser can't open the page. We'll keep you updated with any information that we can get.
Thank you soooooo much, Justin. You are so knowledgeable. thanks for the current info on this problem.
Re: Webkinz World Down / Webkinz.Com Not Responding *Update from GANZ*
i have a question, when i called in one time to ask about a problem with webkinz news i was told that webkinz is in no way affiliated with webkinz world and webkinz told me they can't tell me anything about what goes on with webkinz news.
my question is if they are not associated, why is webkinz news always down when there is maintenance or problems like this? i was going to work on peak a news and its down now.
Re: Webkinz World Down / Webkinz.Com Not Responding
If they do extend it a day, this could work to our advantage because Saturday the limit would be ten snowflakes again. I hate the 5 snowflakes limit because we only get to play Winterfest for 25 minutes a day. I wish they would go back to the old way where there was no limit at all. It was a lot more fun!!! I used to have mine and my husbands computers both going and jumping back and forth clicking away. The five minute limit is so lame. It ruins Winterfest for me, but right now I'd just be happy to be able to do my dailies and get back to my challenges!!
