Red face What was Ganz thinking?

Last week, when I logged onto Webkinz World, I expirianced a problem many of you did. My Webkinz (all 88 of them)'s HHH had dropped tol practically nothing. So I emailed Ganz right away and this was the answer I got back:

Hello and thanks for writing,

You have inquired about your happiness, health and hunger (HHH) levels dropping.
This feature was part of Webkinz World when it was launched, but was removed in
late-2006 due to performance issues. As part of our current efforts to repair
errors in Webkinz World, the code for the HHH calculations was re-written more
efficiently and returned as a feature of Webkinz World. The reason this feature
was re-introduced was to encourage active participation with your Webkinz pets
and to help add a sense of realism to Webkinz World. The HHH drop feature has
now been taken out of Webkinz World to have the numbers reworked. The feature
will return, but the impact on non-active pets will be significantly reduced and
will be calculated based on the number of pets you own.

Regards,

Webkinz Customer Support

Is this at all fair? Personally, this does not motivate me to buy ANY new Webkinz- ever! I think that this new feature is going to couse Ganz to loose A LOT of money! Anyone else agree?

I know this affects everyone and I agree it's not a very well thought out feature, but I only own one webkinz. I do feel pain for everyone who owns more than one though.

I think they are getting a little too wrapped up in the concept of their product! If I had wanted a pet that my son needed to take care of on a daily basis, I'd have bought him a goldfish.

Webkinz are for fun, to relax, not teach responsiblity. Ganz is really getting on my nerves. Again, not buying.

I have 28 webkinz that are all at zero. It breaks my heart I can't spend the money to feed them. I remember when webkinz was just FUN. Now it's... fun but... you know.
I just have stopped feeding them. I know Ganz can't KILL your webkinz so I just play games with them, do jobs, and go about my buisness. I love them, don't get me wrong, but I want to be able to play games and buy them stuff.

--Flip... get a grip. xDD
