Default [SOLVED] secret shopping subforum in WI? or just new?

In browsing around the always informative & entertaining WI forum, I’ve noticed a few threads about Finding Webkinz Productz have been moved to
Webkinz Forum > It's All About The Webkinz! > General Discussion/Chat > Finding Webkinz & Cards
My question: how do we get there easily? Currently, I can’t find a direct link in the parent forum Discussion/Chat (or anywhere else) to that sub-forum. For me, the Discussion/Chat page shows only three sub-forums (The Clubhouse, Webkinz Police Force, Newz & Insider Info). Is it a new sub-forum or an orphaned old one? I don’t see mention of it in the where-to-post guides either (for example in LilyPad1394’s nice new guide "How to Post in the Right Section!").

Is it just me? Or is it some sort of super secret shopping sub-section that is solely unlocked for certain powerbuyers?

[I’m betting it is just new (?) and hasn’t yet been linked to the rest of WI yet, or that I am just not seeing it, but I do like the idea of finding a secret passage. LOL]

I'm really happy that someone else has noticed that as well as myself. I went the W shop today and bought a couple of the new menorah's in the new items category. My daughter logged in on her acct., and they were not available to her. I am able to spend much more time on WKW, and more time equals more money spent and earned. So yes, I feel that power spenders and earners get special treatment

I think the menorah addition is something that made was available during WW's time off line doing upgrades... Hannuka begins next week so I am sure they wanted to give time for purchasers.

jenniferlucile: that's odd that the were not yet available in the w-Shop for your daughter's account! Since each account seems to be linked to one of several different servers in WW, perhaps she was directed to a server that somehow didn't get updated yesterday. They should be available for her soon!

Actually, in WW rich and poor alike get the same treatment in the w-Shop. The only place there is any discrimination is Arte's Curio Shop, where those that shop more are given special treatment by getting special hints and the like.


Note that in my original thread (which I had forgotten about!) I was not referring to the w-shop in WW. I was asking
.... a question about this forum, WebkinzInsider (WI),
.....not Webkinz World (WW).
Specifically, I was asking if there was an error in WI on the main Forum Index. General Discussion/Chat seems to be missing a link to
Webkinz Forum > It's All About The Webkinz! > General Discussion/Chat
> Finding Webkinz & Cards
Several threads have gotten moved to this Finding Webkinz Productz subforum (last time I checked there was 450 threads there), but it doesn't seem to be linked into the rest of WI. I was just worried that threads in this "orphaned" subforum will not get the att'n they deserve. For example some of the the first few threads are
WEBKINZ AT TARGET!!!! (Click the image to open in full size. 1 2 3 ... Last Page)
Yellow Lab!! Found In Orlando,florida!! (Click the image to open in full size. 1 2 3)
Questions about charms...
*Penguin Found in Ontario* (Click the image to open in full size. 1 2 3)
Once these threads are moved to the orphaned subforum Finding Webkinz & Cards they don't seemed to get viewed, since no one can view the contents of that subforum from the main page (unless they happen to stumble across it like I did).

p.s. I meant to go back and edit my original thread, since I realized that both my title and my presentation were not all that clear (since no one answered!). But now that someone has posted to the thread, I will leave it as is.

@jenniferlucile: The first time I logged in to buy the hanukkiot (the proper term! ), I didn't see them, either, but I logged out and back in, and there they were. Now each of my pets has one in his/her bedroom, and there's one on the dining room table.

That's been there forever. Once I made a thread asking if there was a certain Webkinz in my state, but it got moved to there and no one came to it because you can't get there to easily.

Hi there....

That subforum no longer exists because a few retailers were using it to spam free advertisements. Any old threads that you would see are no longer there.

Hope that helps....

Yes, that's what I mean. I think it's a bug in WI that the link to it somehow got overlooked...I feel bad for the people whose posts get moved there...never to be seen again! Hopefully WI can link it in soon and LilyPad1394 can mention it in her new guide "How to Post in the Right Section!" so people know it's there.

Thanks so much for trying to clarify Wendy, and that makes sense about the spam, but these aren't old threads at all..threads are currently being moved there on a daily basis (a few in the last three days). The ones I listed are all open threads and new. Once they get moved there, though, they are getting ignored.

Here's the threads with dates..there's about 20 from November.

Someone is definitely moving new, active threads to the subforum Finding Webkinz & Cards, not realizing it's not supposed to exist! Anyway to have it exist (and hope for no more spam) or move those threads back to General Discussion/Chat?

Thanks for pointing this out. I had no idea those were being moved there. They have all been sent back to the General Discussion forum
