    Hey Webkinz! I am a little bummed out because I never received by Jack O’lantern Candelabra when I completed this Home Before Dark Challenge. I received the Home Before Dark window, but not the Candelabra, which I was really looking forward to because I accidentall sold my other one in the WShop when I received it from the Owl in the park. Is there anything I can do about this? Thanks.

    Hey Webkinz! I was wondering if there was a problem with the floating vampire panther pops? I’ve seen two in the last five days I’ve been on. :( Thank you! Hope you guys have a great October!

    • marykinz says:

      I use Safari and had the same problem. I tried logging in on Chrome and it worked. :)

    • TobyAndMia2020 says:

      I’m having problems. Like you said, the screen is just green. Please fix this Sally!

        Try clearing your cache, try a different browser, try restarting your computer, try the Desktop App.

        • Beckinz8 says:

          Yes, I agree with everything that Sally Webkinz says and have tried them all. I have been having to use the desktop app for at least a week now because the online version (Chrome for me) has become so laggy that it is unusable. (I assume that it is the beginning of the end for Flash and they are trying to coax us to jump ship now.) The only problem that I have noticed on the desktop app is that when I am completing my dailies in the game room, the game freezes for me after I complete my Spree rolls and I need to close the app and reopen it, log in again, and then everything is fine. Other than that, I am enjoying the wider dock display, and no ads!

            I have found it you wait until shopping bags/spree cards are no longer lit up you can then close the Spree game you should not have a problem with it freezing.

          • bonesbongo says:

            Hey Beckinz8 the same thing has happened to me with the Spree Game. I have found if you wait until all of the Stop Signs, Bags, Coins, Money Cards or Spree Cards on the game board are no longer lit up you then close the Spree game you should not have a problem with the game freezing up. At least this is what I have noticed when I play.
