    I noticed that every day, Arte says he has something coming in at 5. But there isn’t anything rare at that time. Is Arte’s clock broken?

    I have to say I still love the new dock. I have so many items in my dock, I can now spend less time finding items and put the items where I want them. I see what clothing items are next in my dock, select the pet I want to wear those ‘matching’ clothes and dress them. In the room themes, I drop those next room items in the room I want them in and sell anything I don’t want. It beats all that scrolling and not finding and then the pet asking for a challenge to start again. Or, trying to remember who was wearing that and do they need this, and checking all my pets to find which one or making copious notes; Buddy needs bee antenna. When I come across a solo item, I decide who gets it or where it goes or I just keep it on my dock. Being able to select ‘pants’ or ‘hats’ should be the next step so trying on ‘hats’ can be easier.

    I like the ‘general ‘ timed daily activities too that I have seen the last two days. More time to play them on my time and get them in.

    I haven’t seen any mention of this, but today the Daily Activities were available all day, instead of hourly. I like that; I keep missing the events I like because I get busy during the day. Is this going to be a permanent thing?

  4. Davids1lilpixie says:

    A suggestion! If you’re going to foist this wretched, “new and improved” docking system upon us why don’t you take (yes I am going there) take a page and learn from Animal Jams? Animal Jams has a search function for it’s “docks”. Looking hats? Simply type in hats and it brings up all the hats in your dock, etc. Looking for chairs or flooring? Ditto. Type in flooring and it brings up all the flooring and nothing else. This dang alphabetized docks would be a LOT more workable if we were given someway of MAKING THEM WORKABLE instead of this massive change (and once again I’m suggesting BETA TESTING FIRST) and leaving the players/customers no way to make it work.

    • 1Emerald1 says:

      Your suggestion is the obvious solution to all of our ongoing issues with our docks. Players have been asking for a search feature for years. This recent change has made things worse than ever & has made room design much more difficult & fashion design even worse. Unless all you want to do is use things together that all start with the same word. What a discouragement of players’ creativity! I really hope ganz is listening. We desperately need a search feature for our docks now. More than ever! And I even know the names of a lot of my stuff. But no one, not even Michael Webkinz, knows the names of everything in Webkinz World. Please pass on our plea for a dock search feature, Michael!

    I do not like the way the dock is organized. Please go back to the original. I agree that it is most difficult to find what you need,especially if you are being timed. Sometimes the old ways are the best.

  6. BubbaC4 says:

    PLEASE PLEASE go back to our regular dock. I may be wrong but I don’t think anyone will EVER adjust to the new dock. I agree the BEST UPDATE would let us organize our docks

  7. 1Emerald1 says:

    There have been a lot of comments about the way our docks have been reorganized. I just want to say this. The new alphabetical system only works for players who actually know the names of all their Webkinz items. Everyone else is left struggling through (in my case, anyway) thousands of items looking for things. When the items were divided by type & then alphabetized it was much, much more user friendly. The clothing sections were great as you could quickly see all the shirts, shoes, belts or whatever you had all at once & make a choice. With the new Webkinz Trendz coming, the change is quite a disappointment. Now getting dressed is more time consuming & complicated. I remember how pleased I was when ganz changed to the alphabetized items in their sections system, how much easier & fun it made room design. I hope they will restore the previous system, this new one is a mess.

    • 1Emerald1 says:

      Additionally, the Decorations section in our docks is now just a jumble of wall papers, floors, wall art & room items. If you don’t know the names of everything you own, good luck finding any of it. Please change back to the former system there was nothing wrong with it!!!! With Webkinz Trendz starting, the last thing you guys want to do is make it harder for players to design an original pet outfit! Unless what you’re actually hoping to see is pets wearing nothing but outfits where all the pieces start with the same word, and somehow I doubt that.

    You wouldn’t put the W-shop in alphabetical order-so why the dock? Makes no sense to me.
