    Please help!!! Thanks in advance! In one of my challenges it requires me to play a game of checkers in the tournament place. I have done this multiple times and it keeps not recognizing that I did it. It was doing that with a couple of my challenges but they got fixed during the maintenance except for this one. I have played it multiple times and even tried using the desktop app instead of the website and it still does the same thing. Thanks again.

    When will the updates be done ? will this affect the days of play ?

    • Sally Webkinz says:

      Maintenance finished yesterday morning.

      • Blue57Star says:

        When I visit the webkinz homepage to sign in (I’m using a windows PC and chrome as a browser) it says ‘we’re making updates be back soon’ and will not let me sign in. This also occurs if I try to sign in on my laptop. I tried clearing browsing history, cache, cookies etc but that did not change anything. This morning due to the fact that I couldn’t sign in through a browser I ended up being forced to use the desktop app (which I hate doing because it hides the taskbar and cannot be minimised when required). Please fix this glitch so players can sign in normally again.

        • Sally Webkinz says:

          Try refreshing the browser a few times (F5 for a hard refresh)

          • Blue57Star says:

            Sometimes the page loads with a ‘login’ option without having to press F5 other times I have to press F5 multiple times to get a login button. It appears that it switches between allowing the player to login and declaring that the site is down at random intervals.

    Sophie (Ganz Team), It is going to be another great month!! We like the butterflies, and we are looking forward to all you planned for us.

    Sally Webkinz – Please Help!!! I’m having problems playing in the Desktop version since yesterday afternoon when I tried. I keep getting the message Webkinz is undergoing maintenance. Please retry later. I did retry later several times even today still getting the same message. I did as you mentioned earlier clearing the cache, refreshing and hitting F5 and did get in a couple of times. Now I am no longer able to get in getting the same message Webkinz is undergoing maintenance. Please retry later. I am no longer able to refresh when I right click on the Desktop version the refresh option is no longer there, I have tried hitting F5 and still not able to play. Do you have any other suggestions as to how I can play on the Desktop Version.

    • Sally Webkinz says:

      I would try uninstalling and then reinstalling the application.

      • coral says:

        I had to do this to get it to straighten up. Please fix. I do not want to have this every time there is an up date.

      • bonesbongo says:

        Sally Thanks for replying and the suggestion. It was not necessary for me to uninstall the application. The Technicians/Programmers in the meantime must been working and have corrected the problem. I have completed 15 accounts with out a problem. The Desktop Version is working perfectly. Thank you! :}

    Looking forward to most of these events. LOVING that dresser – it’s gorgeous. It’s not likely I’ll be doing the July Deluxe Challenge as I do not care for the Pet Buddies (they just bob up and down beside your pet and seem, to me, to always be in the way without serving any real purpose).

  6. Lettykinz57 says:

    Everything looks awesome! Thanks for the update!

  7. kitterzkinz says:

    Kudos to your designing team. The butterfly item is going to look soo good in any Spring/Summer room. :D

  8. abbytay123 says:

    Cant wait for the marshmallow collection!!

  9. corky10angel says:

    How long will the updates take for Webkinz World to be back online?

    • Sally Webkinz says:

      Webkinz World is back up. Try refreshing your browser a few times. You may need to clear your cache.

      • gml1939 says:

        I can’t get in to Webkinz – it says Nuts and Bolts are updating. Be back soon. This has been on all day. I have signed out of Google Chrome and back in, my cache is cleared. How do I refresh?? Help

      • Thatonedemon says:

        I did all that and even restarted the computer, sometimes I still have to refresh the browser when I switch accounts. BTW, the stand-alone Windows app is still stuck on “maintenance.”

      • Wizardsroost says:

        I’ve refreshed repeatedly, and cleared my cache (also repeatedly) and I am still getting this offline edition of the login page. If I go back a page or two, I can get a version with Play, and I have been doing that between refreshes and clearing, but I’m in the middle of the 8pm event, not even halfway through all my accounts, and fast running out of pages to back track for this.
