PostSubject: Webkinz Update!   Fri 06 Mar 2009, 12:03 am

For the first time ever, a set of "Curio Shop Only"
items is being retired from the Curio Shop. Arte will no longer be
selling the furniture from the [color:ea8c=#33AA33 ! important][color:ea8c=#33AA33 ! important]Hockey Theme
in his store. As many of you will remember, the Hockey Theme used to
be available in the wShop, but for the past year or so it has only been
available in the Curio Shop. Now that Arte is no longer selling this
theme, that means it has been retired from Webkinz World.

The items in the retired Hockey Theme are: Goalie Mask Shelf, Helmet Lamp, Hockey Bed, Hockey Chair, Hockey [color:ea8c=#33AA33 ! important][color:ea8c=#33AA33 ! important]Coffee [color:ea8c=#33AA33 ! important]Table,
Hockey Couch, Hockey Desk Chair, Hockey Dining Table, Hockey Flooring,
Hockey Locker, Hockey Side Table, Hockey Study Desk, Hockey Table,
Hockey Wallpaper, and Scoreboard [color:ea8c=#33AA33 ! important][color:ea8c=#33AA33 ! important]Television.

Even more news to bring you following Yesterday's
extended maintenance. A new room has been added to the Clubhouse.
It's called the Survey Room, and every five minutes
a new survey pops up for the Webkinz in the room to answer. So far the
questions have been things like "What is your favorite type of fruit?"
and, unlike the surveys in the Newspaper, you do NOT get $50 KC for answering a question. However, just like any other room in the Clubhouse, you can still relax on the couch and chat with your friends. As of now, the Survey Room is only available in the KinzChat Plus area of the Clubhouse.

The users in our forum finally uncovered the reason for the long

downtime in Webkinz World last night. With a few small improvements
such as the Gem Hunt Count in the Curio Shop and the Blooming Dandelion POTM Prize, we weren't sure why the [color:ea8c=#33AA33 ! important][color:ea8c=#33AA33 ! important]servers were down for so long.

That mystery has been solved, thanks to Copious and jeLlyBeAn1573, who have provided us with pictures of the brand-new treetop room added to Webkinz World. It appears that you must have a bird in your Webkinz account to be able to select this room option when buying a new room.
New activations of birds, if it is one of your first 10 Webkinz, such
as the Webkinz Phoenix in the eStore today are automatically awarded a
treetop room.

We've received reports that a great deal of furniture can't be
placed in the treetop room, but this may be a glitch that will be
corrected soon. It does appear that most outdoor furniture can be
placed in treetop rooms.

WI has received mixed reports as to who
can and cannot buy the new rooms. Some members without birds have been
able to purchase them, and some with birds cannot. At this time, we
aren't sure how or why certain members are qualified for buying the
room. Thanks to Dixiecup for showing us a night time screenshot from her Asian time zone account -- the sky turns dark!

UPDATE: Thanks to the new Webkinz newspaper
article, we now know that Treetop Rooms are only available on accounts
that have "flying" animals. So, Penguins and Ducks don't count, but
Bats do. Also, a new Treetop Theme of furniture should be arriving in
Webkinz World soon.

Thanks to 00jacksonredwall for providing us with a picture of the Treetop Room during the evening, where the sun is setting! From
what we now understand, it is not all "birds" but all flying animals
will unlock the new Treetop Rooms (sorry, penguin owners!).

Another new feature was added with Yesterday's maintenance in Webkinz World. One of the users of our forum, totallyaddicted, was the first to notice that your gem count was added to the decision page in Gem Hunt!

In the past, you could always check the number of each gem in your
gem box, you couldn't check it when Arte asked you to make a decision
on whether to keep or sell the gem. Now, it displays clearly
underneath the gem and you can decide whether or not to keep it or sell
it and there's no need to keep track of it on a list as many of our
users have done! Thanks to Ganz programmers for adding this feature to Gem Hunt!
With an unexpected extended maintenance period, Webkinz World came
back up this morning with a new Pet of the Month item! It's been some
time since one has been added, so here is the Blooming Dandelion
for you all to see. The plant cycles through stages of growth when you
click on it, with a smooth animation between each stage. Here is a
preview of three of the stages of growth!

Thank you to Webkinz Insider member home4bri for
calling our attention to a brand new advertisement in Webkinz World.
Rumors have been swirling around the internet since Fall 2008 that
Ganz was going to be releasing an eStore (non-KinzPostable) version of
several retired items in Webkinz World. We can now say for certain
that, at least for one item, this is true.

The Skater Kat Skateboard was retired from Webkinz World in May 2007
when the Skater Kat Arcade game was removed. The skateboard was the
"trophy" a player would receive for completing al 16 levels of the
game. The skateboard is a vehicle that Webkinz can ride around on in
their houses.

UPDATE: Thank you to WI member cheekiegirl for pointing out the latest news on the Webkinz Newz site:

The Skater
Kat Skateboard Replica will be available Saturday, March 7.
Replica items look like items that were once available in Webkinz World
— but, like all eStore items, cannot be traded, sold or sent through
KinzPost. This replica will be available for one day only, this year. Be sure to visit the Webkinz eStore on March 7 if you’re interested in picking up this replica item.
