Red face **New account adoption warning!! Set correct GMT time!! ***

There is a new option that will be set when adopting Webkinz pets on a new account. <---

When starting a NEW account, you must choose the general time region in the world in which you live.

There will be three choices of -4 hours from GMT (Greenwich Mean Time), GMT or +10 GMT.

Greenwhich Mean Time is in Great Britian and is from 4-7 hours ahead of North America.

The correct one for almost everyone to select is the -4 hours setting that is called Western.

They mean Western Hemisphere. Do NOT confuse this with Eastern, Central, Mountain, Western time zones. If you pick the wrong option, your kt time clock will be wrong!!

Please note that you will NOT see this option if you are just adding another Webkinz pet to an existing account.

Oh my goodness! What a nightmare this is going to be! Why on earth would they make it so confusing? Thanks for the heads up...we have a few 'kinz waiting in the wings for a Nov. birthday so we will be looking at the time zone options carefully.

WESTERN is the setting to choose. But, it sounds like you are just adding another pet to an existing account. You will NOT see that Time Region option and will not have a problem.

They mean Western hemisphere in the world.

This is the default option that comes up during the new account adoption process.

When you choose the Western hemisphere setting, the kt clock in your Webkinz account will still show what we call Eastern Time Zone times.

Yes, it is very confusing and I wanted to prevent as many as possible from making more of the mistakes that I had seen posted this morning.

Hmmmm??? I adopted two pets this morning and Ms. B didn't have anything about time zones! During the second adoption I was suddenly logged out again. Fortunately on log in, the pet was there and her goddie box in the dock. Now to figure out how to arrange the rooms that were ruined by the adoptions. Would be nice to have a choice where the new roomies are going to live in the house.

I just went back and editted my original post.

This option is only seen if your are adopting a Webkinz pet on a NEW account.

People adding pets to existing accounts will not see this setting choice.

We weren't given that option this morning when we adopted Smokey (POTM). Is it because I'm on Eastern Time?


OOPS! just saw the answer. Next time we'll start a new account!! or will we?

What is the benefit of more than one account?

Many, many people are starting extra accounts because of several advantages.

When you have multiple accounts, you will see all of the daily kinzcash events multiple times each day. Wheel of Wow, Wishing Well, Wheel of Yum, Big Button, free kinzcash, etc. Items can then be bought with the money on the extra account and sent over to the main account. It is like having more than one income in a household.

People in the Gift Exchange have multiple ways to move a larger number than 3 items at a time. It helps keep the inventory of items neater if there are other accounts to store the extras on.

Drawback to putting a pet on a new account is not getting the extra exclusive that would have come when adding 2nd or higher number pet. And one less pet towards a Super Bed that is given after 10 adoptions.

Geez. Ganz should have given more thought to that time zone thing. How many kids understand what GMT even is? Even the ones old enough to create their accounts without help may not know what GMT is and how it works.

Since I have an avid interest in aviation, I know it as zulu time but that's just an equivalent for GMT. I just wonder sometimes why they seem to go out of their way to complicate things for the younger ones?
