Webkinz released the new Desktop App today, and it is WONDERFUL!!!
It is easy to install, easy to use, and since it is full screen you can see little details! Webkinz World has never looked better!!! (Note: Since it is full screen you can just press the Windows button on your keyboard or alt-tab to switch windows to still chat on the blog, do Peek A Newz, etc. at the same time.)
Go install it! YIPEE! You can click the image above or <here> to go to the WKN page with the installation link and information.
There is a Special Report – With Steve Webkinz on WKN that contains all of the details & reasoning behind the new Webkinz Account Policy. Refer the this link for all of the information: WKN ACCOUNT ARCHIVING & RECOVERY POLICY UPDATE
Here is some key information about the ACCOUNT ARCHIVING & RECOVERY POLICY UPDATE STARTING APRIL 2nd, 2019
From WKN: we will be making the following changes to our User Agreement’s account retention policy:
1. All inactive FREE accounts will be deleted from our archives. Any paid account (that has ever registered a Webkinz pet Adoption Code, purchased Deluxe Membership, or purchased eStore Points) that is currently in our archive will still remain in our archives for up to 7 years from that player’s last log in.
2. Automatically retrieving inactive accounts from our archives (even if you remember your user name and password) will no longer be possible. To restore an inactive account, you will need to submit your request to our Customer Support team via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org, providing the information listed above.
3. Going forward we will no longer bearchiving accounts. Your account will either be considered active, allowing you to directly log in, or it will be deleted. Free Accounts will be deleted after 6 months of inactivity.Paid accounts will be deleted after 24 months of inactivity. So to keep your account, you’ll need to log in at least once every two years – which considering how many fun events we do, shouldn’t be difficult.

A while ago Dee suggested having a get together of the blog members. It occurred to me a few months ago the service I had been recently introduced to could give us an opportunity to visit without traveling and let those with concerns about meeting in person participate. I emailed a few people and have posted about it in chat but momskinz suggested I do a post. Gymbo and I talked on the phone back before the arthritis caused me to have to quit playing Webkinz for a few years. But we had chatted on the blog almost daily for years before we felt comfortable giving out a phone number. This will allow people to talk without that concern. The server I made is set up intentionally in a way to avoid having impact on what is already being posted on the blog. The main idea was to provide a place for blog parties where people could talk in groups. I haven’t seen any of that sort of visiting while playing in awhile. Discord does provide one on one private talking too as long as you share a server or are friends with a person. There are many blog members who find it difficult to find the time or do not feel well enough to read through posts and type much. This would give them a place when they weren’t doing as well to still stay in contact with friends. I figure there are those of you out there who would like to share rooms especially as we can no longer visit each other’s accounts but hesitate to ask for help to post them. Discord is very easy to post pictures to especially with the photo taking feature already in game. If you can get a picture on to your desk top or in downloads it takes a couple of clicks to get it on the server. Since you can see who is in voice with you or even logged on to the discord at the time it would make some of the games the blog members like to do but found difficult in an open setting easier. It would also allow blog members to pass information or gifts to each other without giving out their email to an individual or going through momskinz. We can send out private alerts without having to have an email someone can be contacted at. You DO NOT need to currently talk on the blog to join but the only people who will be given full membership are those who talk regularly on the blog. Only full members can talk in voice on the discord or receive private alerts. However right now anyone who joins can make an announcement and post screen shots. This will remain as long as it isn’t abused. I did put a content filter for those without full membership. I figure there are some who regularly visit but don’t post due to the open nature of the blog. If enough people who already use discord so will notice information being posted there join I will start posting reminders on there about Webkinz events. I already run a 600 plus member discord for Elderscrolls Online so I am on there pretty much nightly anyway. Won’t take long since most things I can copy and paste. Basically it is there for people to use if they want to, is all set up the only thing I would need to do is give membership to those who qualify. If you are like me and only usually get to play when everyone else in the house is busy, it can be less boring getting through a game for a challenge if you are talking to others. I do it with the ESO group at times. It would be more fun if they were actually playing the same game. People can chat while they play checkers or other two player games. It also gives some privacy from casual corporate visitors.
Make sure you use the application version not through your web browser. The web browser version doesn’t work as well. Let me know if the link doesn’t work. It is supposed to never expire and have unlimited uses but they seem to expire anyway. https://discord.gg/heGwfYG
You can have it on your computer or phone or both.
I know I am on an Apple so yours is likely to look different but here are some pictures of what I mean by application. Discord is the blue circle with the white game control. You can see the little red circle lets you know when there is a message on Discord. They can be personal messages or if someone sends a message to specific groups or to everyone on the server.
This is what it looks like, it is pretty basic. I put myself in a chat channel so you could see what that looked like. You won’t even be able to see all of the channels when you are logged in unless you are an admin

Hello Kinz Friendz! For those of you interested in completing the Jumbleberry Blast game and winning that non-tradeable trophy, I have created a tutorial with tips to help you through. This is my favorite game in Webkinz, and I have completed it many times. The reason I love it is because it’s 90% strategy, 10% luck (yes, I pulled those percentages out of nowhere). In my experience, if you understand the strategy, you can win this game over and over (although still be prepared for losses). It’s a tough game to conquer, which makes it all the more rewarding when you do!
Hello, Kinz Friendz! Since some of you have expressed fear of the trading room and an interest in a tips’ tutorial, I’ve put together this guide to help you get started. The most important thing to understand about the WW trading room is that, if you are already battling a raging Webkinz addiction, the clubhouse bazaar is likely to worsen that addiction since you will be able to collect so many items that you never thought you’d find!

Helping Paws Club is a way to introduce Webkinz to friends. When you give a unique code from your account to a friend who opens up a NEW account using that code, your account gets rewards (to get your code, log into your account, click on the gear icon on the upper right hand side, then click on “Helping Paws” button) and your friend’s NEW account gets a one-time 2000kc bonus. These rewards are sent to your account every week and vary depending on what’s done on the NEW account that week (the slate gets wiped clean every week).
Aside from KC coins and Estore points, the prize pool includes 3 types of gift boxes. The SMALL box contains clothing items (backpack, blouse, cap, dress, flats, glasses, jacket, pants, skirt & sneakers). The MEDIUM box contains decorations (bouquet, candles, carpet, column, lamp, neon sign, patio door, tapestry, vase, wall sconce). The LARGE box contains furniture items (wallpaper, flooring, bed, armchair, couch, room divider, organ).
Here are some of the ways you can earn rewards:
When your friend adopts 10 pets on the NEW account all within the same week, you get a large box, a medium box and a small box and 5000 estore points on your account.
When your friend adopts 5 pets on the NEW account within the same week, you get a large box, a small box and 3000 points.
When your friend adopts 1 pet on the NEW account, you get a large box and 1000 points.
When your friend adds a one-month deluxe membership on the NEW account, you get a medium box and a 2000 kc coin.
When your friend adds a 3-month deluxe membership on the NEW account, you get a large box and 1000 points.
Have you found other ways to earn Helping Paws Club rewards? If so, we’d love to know what you did and what prizes you received for that week.
