Stadium.png

First Reported on 05/21/10 Resolved on 05/31/10

File:Clubhouse_closed2.jpg


First reported on 04/23/2010 Resolved when event over 04/29/2010

When some members are trying to hunt for Goober, they are getting kicked out of the Clubhouse. They are able to see Goober and get a rocket on one account, and on another account in the same room or the same color zone they get kicked out. This does not happen all the time. [1] [2]


No Vacation Island Raffle Prizes

First reported on August 10, 2009 Resolved March 31, 2010

Updated Dec 17, 2009 (after maintenance)

Updated Mar 20, 2010

Every time a raffle is won at the parties on Vacation Island, winners see a blank prize alert box and no prizes are added to their docks, even after logging out and back in,opening and closing browsers and clearing caches. This happens in all cell phone zones, all time zones and all servers to all users (including Deluxe members) using all browsers every time. [3] [4] [5]

Vacation Island Empty Box

Fairy Falls Not Working

First reported November 13th, 2009 Updated Jan. 3, 2010

Archived March 7, 2010

Many, but not all, of our members are reporting that they are not able to get into the Fairy Falls feature. The screen/graphics freeze up and it is not possible to click on fairies to collect charms or prizes. The cursor retains the Wand shape and when you opt to log out, there is no cursor. You have no choice, you have to log out. Your account is frozen.

This problem does not appear to be Server dependent since members are reporting that they have accounts on the same server and one account is affected and the other is not.[6]


Woodland Wonders Freezes

First reported Oct 30th, 2009

Sometimes when clicking on a Male Fairy in the Woodland Wonders, as soon as the box "drops" the feature will "freeze" and the prize will not be awarded. Since this glitch started, no one has reported getting any Keys in the Woodland Wonders. Suspicions are that the "frozen boxes" were supposed to contain keys. It appears that this glitch started following site maintenance on October 28th.[7]


Zum Outfit Cannot be Worn

First reported October 30th, 2009
Updated on November 12th, 2009

Resolved Dec 18, 2009 [8]

Players who complete their Giggly Zum collection and click on the box to receive their prize are kicked out of Webkinz World. When they log back on, they find a "Zum Outfit" sitting in their docks. Instead of sitting with the rest of the clothing items, this "Zum Outift" is grouped with the coupons. This "Zum Outfit" cannot be worn by Webkinz. The system doesn't seem to recognize it as a clothing item. [9] [10]

Previous to the report of this glitch, players completing their Giggly Zum collection were awarded a three piece Zum Costume consisting of a "Zum Costume Hat", "Zum Costume Body", and "Zum Costume Feet". Those items could be worn as clothing. Players reporting this glitch are getting a single item called "Zum Outfit".

UPDATE: As of November 12th, the Giggly Zum Box can no longer be opened. The glitch affecting all of the rest of the boxes has been corrected, but anyone trying to open the Giggly Zum Box is logged out of Webkinz World.


Countdown to Christmas Does Not Work

First reported December 1st 2009 Fixed Dec 14

Everyone clicking on Ms. Birdy is getting a message "Sorry, this event is out of date." No gifts are given.[11][12]

UPDATE: Ganz has announced that Ms. Birdy wasn't supposed to show up until the 14th, and she has been removed from the Clubhouse. This report will be left pending for now until we see what happens on the 14th.

When the new Christmas items were added to the wShop, all of the graphics were missing. By the end of the day, all of the graphics but one had been added to the system.

Zums No Longer Have Parties

First reported November 10th, 2009 Fixed December 1st, 2009

Immediately following the change in programming that was supposed to ensure that all Zum Parties awarded Zummies, reports started coming in that it was impossible to get a Zum happy enough to get have a party. After three days (on November 12th) we have not had a single report of any player on our forum being able to get their Zum's happiness above 90%.[18]


No POTM Gifts for Schnauzer Adoptions

First reported Jan 1st 2010 Fixed on January 5th, 2010

Woodland Wonders Freezes

First reported Oct 30th, 2009

Sometimes when clicking on a Male Fairy in the Woodland Wonders, as soon as the box "drops" the feature will "freeze" and the prize will not be awarded.

First reported Oct 28th, 2009
Corrected on November 12th, 2009

Following site maintenance on Oct 28th, members started reporting that they were unable to open up Zum prize boxes after collecting pictures of all of the Zums. Clicking on the prize box to redeem the prize logs the player out of his/her account every time, without awarding the prize.

All Four Seasons Trees on all accounts are now "stuck" to the floor. Once placed in a room, they cannot be removed by players. The only way to get a tree removed is to contact Customer Service and have them move it to the dock. Also, if a pet is in "walk mode" and a player clicks on the tree, the pet will not walk to the tree. Instead, the season changes.[25]

Dragon Clothes

January 2010 Calendar

First Reported Jan 1st 2010
Fixed January 20th, 2010

It appears that Quizzy's Calendar has not yet been updated for the 2010 year. We are getting reports from all over the forum that answered questions are not revealing a hidden picture. Also, the questions don't "stay answered". Once a player exits out of the calendar screen and goes back again, the questions are once again marked as unanswered. And, players answering the Daily Bonus Question are not having it show up as answered on their calendar screen.

Instead of offering the safari jacket, ballerina bed, 700 kc, and the bright ideas lamp to vote on, some accounts offer 4 different options: the short mahogany coffee table, mystical ottoman, winter feast dining table, and wheat fields window.

Minor

The Employment Office

First reported on 9/22/09

There are inconsistencies with the information and actual behavior in regards to failing a job twice in a row. Upon reaching level 3 in a job, Tabby Von Meow says that you can come back and play at this level all of the time. However, upon failing a job two times in a row, you are demoted to level 2, contrary to Tabby Von Meow's information.[37]

Developer Note: This isn’t a bug, it’s a misinterpretation of what Tabby Von Meow is saying (just as the interpretation that since see said “all of the time” that you shouldn’t have to wait 8 hours). Players are still bound by the rules of the Employment Office, which say if you fail twice in a row, you drop a level. Note that if we ever redo the voice over (which we are considering doing for a number of reasons), we will change this line.

Light Denim Skirt & Powder Blue Skirt

First reported September 16th 2009 Fixed on October 5th 2009'

The new Powder Blue Skirt has the exact same graphic as the old Light Denim Skirt. Ganz addressed this issue in the Webkinz Newz on the 17th and said the graphic would be fixed "soon".

Blue Skirt Mixup

On October 5th, 2009, the graphic for the Powder Blue Skirt was changed. It looks similar to the one Ganz displayed in the Webkinz Newz report. It's that skirt, without the bows.


Pets Don't Like Farm Fresh Candy Canes

First Reported October 2009 Fixed on November 23rd 2009

Unlike the Ossilily Bone from the Collie's PSI, the Farm Fresh Candy Cane from the Peppermint Puppy's PSI is programmed so that only the Peppermint Puppy likes to eat it. When other pets eat the Farm Fresh Candy Cane, they react as if they have been fed another pet's Pet Special Food.[38]

Polar Plunge

First Reported in 2008 Fixed on December 7th, 2009

As of now, the lowest score completing Black Diamond is about 10,200, however when the game is over, a message will pop up saying that the score is not "reasonable" and Kinzcash will not be given and score not submitted.[39]

Regal Banquet Dining Table

Originally reported 1/22/09
Fixed on December 17th 2009

The Regal Banquet Dining Table in the Clubhouse has items sitting on it, but Webkinz players can no longer place items on their tables. The programming was changed on Jan 22nd 2009. On that day, all items that had been sitting on the tables got stuck. Players had to contact Ganz to have them "unstuck". [40]

Stuck Menorah

Friend List Disappearing From Phone

First Reported October 22nd, 2009 Fixed on December 17th, 2009

There are widespread reports of certain accounts having their friend lists wiped clean each and every night.

Every time one of those players wants to send something via KinzPost, they need to re-add the friend to their list.[41]


Wheel of WOW awards wrong prize

When the High Score list was added back to Webkinz World many members noticed that Ganz had placed default scores on the lists. These scores use fake accounts and names and in many cases are unattainable.

The following games are currently affected by this glitch: Candy Bash, Color Storm, Triple Strike Solitaire


Pink Cockatoo Loses Clothing When Seated

First Reported October 16th, 2009

Doug the Dog uses the wrong names for two of the prizes he gives out. He calls the "Mining Helmet" a "Gem Finder Hat". He also calls the "Mining Suit" a "Gem Finder T-Shirt".[49]



Notes

Surveys

Sample Survey Sept 17, 2009

Sometimes the survey questions are a little difficult for us to understand. Many WW players would not know the difference between a "full room theme" and a "playset". They are all "themes" to us.

The question will be answered but the survey results will not be very meaningful.
