    Hey Gennelle. Why are quick draws no longer being given? I also wanted to ask about last years Christmas badge. I collected every day and at the end a window popped up and said I got the badge. I emailed about it but never received a response. I checked a bunch of my friends pages and I do not see the badge on any page. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks a bunch.

    • Gennelle Webkinz says:

      Hey mahala. (I think I answered your question on another post). Our designers wanted to move onto other activities, so Quick Draws aren’t being offered anymore. As for the badge, you did the right thing by emailing Customer Support, and I’d encourage you to try again as they’re not quite as busy as they are during the holiday season: webkinzsupport@ganz.com. Thanks.

    Dear Podkinz, since I love coming up with characters for various things, I was wondering: who comes up with the Kinz characters and how do they come up with them? Thanks!

  4. ArtMagician says:

    Great episode, like always! I didn’t do that good on the quiz…oh well. :p I got one, two, and five. But those were so easy! I missed the hard ones. Typical. Lol. ☺ Anyway great episode, and thanks so much you guys at Ganz!

    I hope Ganz let’s us have a write-in vote. I’d vote for Fluffington!!

    Are any estore items gone for good? There are a few (the Balcony Doorway, Modern Art Set, Downtown Penthouse theme, Modular Sofa, and Snowy City Wallpaper) that I search for in the estore every week but are never there! I would love it if you’d add them back in someday :)

    I love the actions that your pet does right when you log in- (like stomp foot and jump up) I know you can unlock 6 new actions from the Kinzville Academy, but will we ever have a chance to unlock these other actions? They look really cute when my googles does them!

    • playnowpuppy says:

      I love the actions :) Your pets looks soooooooooooo cute doing them :)

    • MidnightQueen says:

      I’ve unlocked all the actions from the Kinzville Academy, and all of my pets can do them. One of the actions was jump, but not stomp foot. ***MidnightQueen***

      • jellydonut says:

        Yep, stomp foot, run in place, sleep, wag tail, jump up, perk ears, and a few others were glitch actions that were randomly given to people back in 08. My friend has run in place and perk ears. It would be cool if we had a chance to win them, since they’re obviously in the system somewhere.

    Hey podkinz, how far in advance do you plan new features/events on webkinz? Are there any plans for 2016 already?
