    Genelle and Michael, Omg I totally love you guys. I have a question, are you going to vote and if you are who are you voting for? I would just like to know your current opinion, Thanks :)

    Michael, you did really well with the quiz. I think that the only reason that I got all of them right is that since I live in the United States I am more familiar with the system than you are in lovely Canada. My uncle was mayor of the city that we live in for a while so this whole mayorial race is a lot of fun for me. I am looking forward to the upcoming elections, however I am wondering if there will be a chance that all of us in Webkinz can choose to continue WITHOUT an official mayor.

      Yeah Micheal u wern’t as bad u think :) GREAT job :) and megamom13, that’s pretty cool that your unlce was mayor where u live :) and also megamom12, sorry but I think that the only way Kinzville will be without a mayor is if no one votes, but sounds like a lot of people are voting :( sorry :( but maybe having a mayor won’t be so bad :D

    Dear Podkinz, I can’t wait for the Elections to start! But I was wondering, do u know how many more canadaites will join the race for mayor, or will I just have to wait and see? :) :) :)

    Dear Podkinz, I know u stopped making lil Kinz and Signatures :( Why did you stop? :D :D :D

    • Gennelle Webkinz says:

      Hey playnowpuppy. We’ve answered this one quite a few times, both on Webkinz Newz and on the podcast: the answer is that we moved our focus onto our main line of pets. Webkinz are collectible, so a limited number of pets are made for each line, and then they’re retired. If anyone asks why Sigs and Lil Kinz are no longer made, you can share this reason with them. Thanks!

    hey podkinz! I was wondering if you’ve ever thought of doing a pumpkin carving game towards Halloween? I think it’d be really cool if we could have it as a daily game or just something in the “Today’s activities” section. Also, I was wondering how you got the name Ganz? Is it a last name? or did someone just make it up? thanks!

    Please tell me you are going to add good candidates because lets face it, so far they’re all at varying levels of horrible

    Dear Podkinz, I know something that went wrong on webkinz this year. It was when that announcement came about “kinzchat plus was no longer gonna be on webkinz world”. Then it got REALLY crazy! People were actually QUITING webkinz.com! And I was also upset around then because if it happened I wouldn’t be able to chat with my besties in the park. It would be difficult because we always tell funny jokes and talk about cool and funny stuff. But we didn’t know each other in real life, just online. So it would be REALLY hard to talk about stuff to each other! But when they announced that they would get kinzchat plus back to the park I was REALLY HAPPY!!! Because it meant I could still kinzchat plus with my friends and talk about neat stuff! Anyways my point is that even though things go wrong, there could be a chance something good might happen, you never know! ;)
