i said this on the last post: i got 2 of the Autumn Bouncy Castles from the fall super mystery bags if anyone would like to trade for one – i would love the Fall Fl0ral Hot Air Balloon, Pumpkin Trunk, or Autumn Rocky Trail Cave – I also got the fall blooms wallpaper and squirrely lamp that i might be willing to trade
and gaga said this: QOS… I got two sprinkle dresses.. do you need one.. would you like to trade ?
chant – QoS already gifted me the chalet chair, so i have the 2 i wanted now. i sent yours back – thank you SOOOOO much! it was really sweet of you, but I don’t want to take your only one! thank you!!!!
Queen of Sheba, glad you are done throwing pies! I’ve only got one account to do, but I’ve been putting it off only because I know it won’t be that hard to reach the 200 KC needed.
Hi moms! Doing okay! Thanks! ♥
Chant, so sorry to hear about the mess with dh’s doctor lying to get insurance to cover his PET scan! Very unethical! And thanks! Power going out made it extra hot in the house, but I tried not to think about it…
littleleaf, congrats on getting to level 16 in Zacky’s Quest!! I don’t think I’ve ever gotten that far! That’s awesome!
gaga, hoping your nephew is able to make some time to talk with you this weekend!
Working on a new room in WW today! Been a while, so I’m a little rusty. LOL!
This is going to sound so dumb but… does anyone have a Peppermint Chair or any Christmas rugs they’d be willing to trade for? I know, I know a Christmas room in August doesn’t make any sense whatsoever but I’m doing it!!
Q: Can we still arrange for trading items on the Webkinz Newz trading forums?
Q: What if a trade of virtual items was arranged between two players outside of Webkinz World, like on Facebook?
A: As long as it is a straight trade of virtual items through the Clubhouse Trading Room —not involving eStore Points, real money, or equivalent services—where the trade was arranged doesn’t matter. Remember KinzPost is for gifting ONLY, not for trading.
Q: Can we still gift items to friends and family through KinzPost?
A: Yes. Anything sent as a true gift is fine. But if that “gift” was sent in exchange for real money, eStore Points, or equivalent services–THAT is not allowed.
Q: Can we trade codes for virtual items or virtual pets for real money, eStore Points, or equivalent services?
A: Codes are yours and can be sold/traded as you see fit. Just remember that you can’t trade the codes for virtual items in an any way, as virtual items can only be traded through our in-game trading system. Also, if you trade codes for any service that breaks our Terms of Service, your account will be considered to have broken our Terms of Service as well.
Oh….just followed the link and read the stuff above about trading! I just read Sally’s comment about “please report individuals”. That’s sounds terrible! Instead of being a supportive community it will encourage spying and tattling. It makes me wonder if a lot of people have been taken advantage of.
The trading conversation by Steve is confusing to me! We are allowed to trade on WKN but NOT through any other forum? Am I missing something here? How will that be monitored? I don’t understand it. Does that mean that we can’t exchange items here or help with wish lists? Isn’t Steve contradicting new policy by saying that we can only go through clubhouse, but then it is okay to trade in forums on WKN? Confused!
In light of all this, Gaga, the donut dress is a gift! ♥ I certainly don’t want to lose my account.
In the future…. I guess we could arrange a trade here and then set a time to go to the clubhouse room to trade? Would that work? Sounds complicated!
moms, I just left a comment on Webkinz Newz regarding trading/gifting. I understand the whole part about trading needing to go through the Trading Room in the Clubhouse and KinzPost being strictly for gifting, but what I don’t understand is the whole thing with buying and selling virtual items. Not that it really concerns me (and hopefully I haven’t just accidentally put myself on the Webkinz Team’s radar), but the statements regarding that aspect seem to be contradictory…
Grandma001, I don’t want to get either of us in trouble. Please keep your Peppermint Chair and any rugs for now. I don’t feel safe doing anything besides sending notes through KP right now… :\ I don’t see how the Webkinz team can actually PROVE whether items sent through KP are gifts or trades, which is a big thing that worries me. I wouldn’t want you to just give me the things without something in return and I don’t want gifts exchanged from two friends to be construed as being a “trade.” I almost always try to send something back to a friend when they send me/surprise me with a gift and I think that’s what really stinks about this whole thing… Now there’s the dilemma of “Do I send my friend a gift back and risk the Webkinz Team thinking it’s a trade or not?”
I’m going to continue to send gifts back when I want – I don’t think their intent is to stop any honest giving. I think they don’t want people coming to them saying they traded, but the other person never sent . . .
hey all busy with the kiddo here had a fab dinner of farfalle, spinach and orange peppers. with garlic of course nom nom nom nom it was a whole big pack of spinach that cooked down so small! we are gonna road trip to st louis this weekend feel free to provide inputs of where or where not to go
just read up good grief……………if you have to worry about webkinz police time to quit what you do with your things and your money is your right and they know to not get poopy about it, as we will all make their bottom line suffer……………..sheesh………..
Finally Friday ! So happy…just need to get through today ! Lots happening at work again…not for the better….but hopefully this too will settle down over time. Thanks to whoever is sending the clothing bags!! ♥ I received the seashore wig and the long wig ! QOS.. thanks for the gift of the donut dress… sent you a gift to say thanks…Enjoy your last weekend with your baby before she heads out on a new adventure ! moms.. thanks for the trading info… will have to check WKN to see what all is being said…didn’t get the items you are looking for in the Mystery bags.. but I still have one to open… dee… happy for you that your baby is home for a visit..know how much your time together means to you ! Have fun ! Otterkinz.. good morning to you too ! April… How are you ?? Hope all is well with you and Stella… and last weekend was all you had hoped.. with your brother and his family ! Have a good day everyone ! Chants… hope you get some good news about your hubby’s PET scan !
Otterkinz, I have to get ready for a doctor’s appointment. I’ll try to have some WW this afternoon. The account where most of the extra Christmas items are located needs a pet adopted. I’ll see which rugs I have available and let you know. I’ll send from Grandma001. If you can add me, that would be great.
Dixie, I probably have most of the 2016 items you missed. If you would be kind enough to provide a list of what you still need, I would appreciate the opportunity to fill some of those wants as a thank you for all you do.
Thank you, Chant, for the wish list items! I can’t believe you are finding time to send gifts with all that you are going through … sending thoughts and prayers your way for a good report soon.
Things are going well at the school, although there is so much to do and coordinate with 3 kids’ schedules. I got a couple of blank stares yesterday near the end … I think they were slightly brain dead, but hanging in there. It is such a strange mixture of sad and happy. College can be the most fun you’ve ever had … but also the most stressful. I’m thinking they might actually handle things better once we are out of the way. Haha, adulting is hard.
gaga—We had such a fun time with my family last weekend. I loved every minute of it. We love to play games…exploding kittens (it's a card game), unstable unicorns, etc. We yell, trash talk and laugh until our faces hurt. The lady that sold us the house left an old small pool table in the basement. We had an epic billiard tournament. We only spoke in British accents while we played. Teenage girls are a hoot. Learned a bunch of new teen lingo. Stella had a blast. She passed out the minute they left. I was tired too, but I miss them. Then had a busy week. I hope you get to talk to your nephew soon. I hope your day goes quickly so you can enjoy your weekend!
Chant—Thinking of you and sending hugs and prayers your way.
dee—Enjoy having your dd home!
Best wishes to everyone getting there kids ready for school/college/Spain!
Miracle—I cannot image having to get 3 kids prepared for college at the same time.
moms—Sending over the pumpkin truck. No need to send the bouncy castle.
I'm also looking for the Fall Fl0ral Hot Air Balloon and Autumn Rocky Trail Cave along with the Fall Blooms Bed and Fall Fl0ral Greenhouse.
I have these items for 'mutual gifting' Fall Blooms Window, Squirrely Rug, Tricky Zum-Zoomer, Zippy Zum-Zoomer
Hi everyone! Sorry I didn’t have any time to tell you all the news..this was a very busy and tiring week! So glad it’s over..I came home after a very early start and crash landed in my bed, and promptly went ten toes up! Lol dh went out fast too. Just woke up..lol
I’m not liking ganz trying to control things by asking others to tattle..that could open up a can of worms for sure! I rarely really”trade” anyway, and love gifting. I trust everyone here. I’m so not a room trader, I find a lot of traders in there rude. Plus it takes forever to find stuff in the docks when you have a lot in it..woukd be nice to have a place to type in what your looking for to make it pop up and easier to find! But that woukd make too much sense! Lol
Ok, now update for those of you wsiting.. First, we confronted dr. About how test was gotten. She BLUSHED! Said yes she knew about that, but that she wasn’t the one to do it! Apparently the nurse/ assistant that handles the insurance pre approvals said she did it to get the scan done fast. She also said there were TWO diagnoses, the right one and the cancer one to push it through faster..apparently they all do this to get ins. Companies to pre approve! Wow, ok then. Dr. Appoligized for us not being notified, but she wasn’t told till it was a done deal.
The scan took a long time, longer then normal. I was really getting worried..he came out looking beat up. Apparently the way they had him lay hurt his back bad, my poor hubby… we saw the dr. Very next day, on thursday. She said, first let me tell you there is NO CANCER ANYWHERE. Which has been in my mind because he has pancreatic cancer on BOTH sides of family and his mom and older brother passed from it! So HUGE RELIEF to hear that.
Then said one very tiny spot in the ankle he had operated on lit up bright. Right where the special ct scan said there was a limpoma growing. Just soft tissue growth. Right where there is only one s- crew! But she couldn’t confirm if it’s an infection or just swelling!! But it’s a slight possibility it is.. so, off to do BW to check white cell count and inflamation sed. rate. Should know monday. And she is conferring with the leg surgeon to see if she’ll do a needle biopsy if that area to see if it is source of that pesky infection or not!
Also to see if ankle is healed enough to possibly remove that one s-crew so that the soft tissue can stop being irritated. So that’s next. And has to be done stat! Because after his heart operation he can not go under again for a YEAR unless it’s an absolute emergency!!
So we got some really good news. Light at end of tunnel can be seen! Finally. I can’t tell you the weight that came off my shoulders. Dh just kinda said..” I wasn’t worried” lol yeah ok, in a pigs eye you weren’t! Lmbo. Men.!!
April, I’d love to gift you the fall blooms bed. I only bought couple of bags. Didn’t really care for the fall beds, but I would have loved getting the greenhouse, that looks the best to me out of the things I saw. ! Although I also thought the tricky and zippy zoomers are cute too! I HAVE the zippy. So if your gifting the tricky zoomer, I’d love it! Bed on its way!
Moms, sent chairs back! Please enjoy! You misunderstood what I wrote I think. I found a bunch on other accounts. After I wrote that I’d only found one on main account. So all yours my friend! I loved the food item is that from a plant or dispenser? And I love the vanity too! Thank you!
April, Ohhh dang it! I sent wrong bed oops! But please send that fall bed back and I will send the RIGHT one after 12 tonight..my brain is mush..I took out both beds to see the names..lol and I goofed up anyway, good grief. I feel like a dumb arse! Lol
I put the right one in the room ww opens up in so I don’t mess up again. .lmbo.ugh!! Again, SORRY!
And everyone who sent prayers, or just thought of us or said kind words… DH AND I THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS! He said to tell all you here, “thanks for caring and letting her (me) vent and helping my wife deal with the stress I’ve been causing her, she tells me all about you. Some of you have the twisted kind of humor I like. Thank you for the prayers. I’m happy she has you all to share her pet thing game with, I could care less about it…but if it makes her happy..AND I don’t have to hear about the game..I’m happy, so thanks!”
Yup, he dictated I typed..lol dh is a hoot. Just for the record, he really hates when I talk about ww, BUT, he’s the one who bought me over 300 plush is for it..just saying. And he helps name them..but some of those names I can’t say on here. But he’s creative for sure! Lmbo I’ll tell you one that always makes me laugh..it got accepted, and I never thought it would, now I can’t take that pet in public.. Ballzack. Yeah I know. He was just throwing funny names at me..and of course it wouldn’t take written in two or ds correctly, so we tried different ways, and well..now I have a dog named that.
Chant – great to hear that DH’s problem isn’t cancer! Will continue to pray that they are able to care of the problem. If the safari pieces are still available, I am interested in them.
Otterkinz – I have bad news and good news. The bad news is that I’ve spent over an hour searching for Christmas rugs. I looked in Wiki and found a Snowflake Rug (winterfest 2009, I believe) that takes up a 4X4 space and a Home for the Holidays Rug 2014 (3X3). The last one is pictured with the WShop theme but I thought it was from Ms. Birdy. The good news is that although that’s only two choices, I have both. I thought there were more than that but can’t find any different ones. Take a look at the pictures and let me know if one of those would fit into your room design.
hey all busy busy here breather kind of right now………..dd went to a concert with a friend in nashville on the INTERSTATE without a parent. yeah yeah yeah but the INTERSTATE! under 21 concert admission, but in a bar………. thankfully it is a nice neighborhood……:) so anyone want to bet money that dh sleeps on the couch til she gets home? ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
No Dee, not silly at all. And thanks! It’s been a crazy year and a half..I’m ready to get off the Rollercoaster for sure!
Our son is 30 Dee, I STILL worry when he gets on motorcycle and heads out to those big bike places like Sturgis..I sleep terrible till he gets home safe!! And I didn’t even birth the boy! Can’t imagine how I’d be if I had!!! Lol
And I’m guessing dd is a big daddy’s girl? Your poor dh. But something tells me you might be secretly waiting up tonight too.
i need my snooze or i am grumpy! but i hear everything because i am a mama
she is not of age yet, so no hanging around at the bar but the INTERSTATE
ha ha ha just driving into nashville proper is scary! three real interstates converge there and they have a couple of them round the town ones………dd knows the area well, and they took dhs gps………..I am more worried about this than her doing her study abroad to spain!
Wow..I’ve never been there. But I drive 4 lane highways in this state..white knuckle driving..hard to let go of wheel after! Lol Always sends me into slight panic, but I force myself to drive or I’d be trapped. So I understand what you feel. I feel that driving into Hartford or New Haven areas..and the Waterbury traffic people just zoom… good grief. I can only imagine the Nashville area..HUGS!
As to hearing everything cause you’re the mama..made me lmbo, I hear everything too. .things dh won’t wake for. He says I’m silly. But with how I’ll he’s been, my mommy genes have kicked into full gear!
Good Morning All ! Chants.. so happy that PET scan showed no cancer….I am sure that is a great relief to both of you… now wondering about the hardware may be causing the irritation… hope they figure out best plan of action… April… Glad you had a great time with your family ! Yesterday… pt threatened to shoot us all with a gun.. if he had one…Immediately security and local police arrived… along with paramedics… took him directly to ER for psych eval… unsure yet on his outcome… You cannot in today’s world threaten such a thing and think there are no consequences… Shook everyone up for the rest of the day… Did end up hearing a few words from my nephew… Planning on coming home next weekend for Labor Day and he says we can chat then… Living arrangements not conducive for “talking on the phone” !! Early morning .. already to my Moms.fix breakfast.. get her settled for the morning..Off to Mass.. dentist.. and then Saturday errands.. Hope all is well with the rest of you guys and hope to check back later !
Chant—I am so happy you finally have some answers! And it’s not cancer, what a relief for you dear. Oh yay, thank you so much, I would love to gift you the Tricky Zoomer. And no worries about the wrong bed, it’s getting confusing with all of the items and similar names. I just sent the bed back with the Tricky Zoomer. Your dh is too cute!
nita—BAHAHAHA! That’s exactly what I thought when I saw it too!
MOMS!!! Thank you for the awesome gift! I love it!
dee—Don’t blame you one bit. Dh and I have driven through Nashville several times and I wouldn’t want my 19-20 yr. old driving in that, heck, I don’t want to drive in that.
LL—I promise it does end…hang in there! I’ve only bothered to finish all of them on one account.
gaga—WHAT?! That is so scary! I’m very glad your work place took that threat seriously and took appropriate action. You can never be too careful now. I can imagine everyone was really shook up. Glad it was just a threat and nobody was hurt. Will they have security tightened in case this person decides to come back? Do you still have to treat this person? Your nephews doorm is most def. not conducive for talking on the phone! I never lived in one, but my bf did and you have no privacy. So glad you will get to see him next weekend.
April, I fell asleep, but as soon as I’m done with posting here will pop on ww and send the right bed..lol they have similar names, and silly me had them both out..so they were right next to each other in my dock..sorry.. and thank you.
Gaga, holy poop! That is so scary!!! Years ago I had a two family. Owned with my sis,and b in law. The tenant they got in..well he was just pure evil. He beat his wife and children! Back then unless you SAW it you really couldn’t prove it. Specially if said woman wouldn’t press charges! But I got tired of hearing it, started working on her while he was at work, promised to help her get away. Found help for her. Tried to boost her confidence. Well it worked. But he went crazy. Told me he’d kill me if he found out I’d helped her..! He had a stockpile of guns and I knew it..I was able to call police because of direct threat.
April – I’m going to have to look up the exploding kittens card game! Sounds like fun!
Chant – Glad to hear the good report about your husband! What a whirlwind you all have been through! I can see why you went immediately to bed!
Littleleaf – Yep! The challenges end eventually! With the exception of the new ones that seem to be challenges that you complete within a months time.
Moms – Thanks for the clothing recipe!
Dee – I hear ya’ about concerns for dd!
Gaga – Somehow I’m not surprised to hear that nephew’s living arrangements are not conducive to phone conversations! But oh….the stuff you are facing at work! That is definitely alarming!
Chant – If that bucket hat is still available, I’m interested. I think it is cute!
Nitabuggy – RE:#46 Definitely not a fan of that cottage!
Four of my kids are home today! Yay! The weather is so nice that we will have a cookout tonight! It is great to have the windows open! Guys are disc-golfing right now and my gals are chatting up in bedroom. Taking the opportunity for a little WW!
Chant! Oh my goodness! That tenant sounds awful! My dh is a landlord of a few apartments and he has dealt with a lot, but never that! Whew! Sometimes I have been scared for him when he is dealing with volatile situations. Most of the time he has good tenants, though.
Ok, got called away..I’ll finish story. They got a warrent, we unlocked the door. He had so many weapons it shocked us and police. Long story short, he found his wife in a car with her fathet. He ran them off road, beat his FIL within an inch of life. Beat her too..cops came he drove away fast, cops chased, cornered him, he took himself out with his weapon. Her father lived, she lived. She moved away with her kids. In the end we lucked out, cause while he was hurting her she confessed I’d helped her..I was next. That was a wake up call. We sold that house. No more tenants ever. And I never back down from anyone. I refuse to be afraid.
Hello everyone! I don’t have really any good reason for being MIA for this long, but things I have been doing have included cleaning parts of my house, actually getting my drivers license, setting up my transfer to a new college, going to my county’s fair, and I am just about done with my webkinz house inventory project. The only hangup has been a few objects that I didn’t see that another list of mine confirms I have. I have to go through some rooms and check again when that happens.
I have only read through this post, so if there has been any other news I am not caught up. I am a little bit disappointed in the new trading policies because there are plenty of people like me who don’t want to rely on timing to trade with people and didn’t mind sort of gambling on the webkinz trading forum as to whether the trade would go through or not. I would understand if the webkinz team issued a more formal warning, but issuing a policy like that seems over the top. I especially see no reason to report anyone no matter what because the way I see it, it is their own business how they control their account as long as they don’t bring their problems to the company.
LL, those chalenges seem like they go on forever!!lol I’ve only managed to complete them all on my first account. I’m stuck on the mega one on second..as to all the others? Lol they get done only as I do daily stuff and it happens to apply to a chalkenge..snicker.
Hey dee? I was rereading some of the posts here, cause,well I’m menopausal and forget what I read 5 mins later, anyway I realized you said you were putting a throw on the couch…just for a min. I thought, hmmm the couch outside waiting outside? Then laughed at myself cause I then remembered that finally got picked up..lol but apparently it was around long enough to stick in my brain..go figure!
Oh yeah, and we finally feel well enough to go out with an old friend of mine and her hubby..we stopped by her home on way back from getting the good news, as she had called the day before while I was waiting for his scan to be done. Soni surprised her. She was so happy to see us. And since next week we actually for the first time in over a year HAVE NO DR. APPTS!!! She asked us if we go out to dinner to celebrate. So next friday we have a couples date! The drinks and swimming at their home sfter..I’m excited! And she said this year she won’t take no for an answer for xmas eve, eve! DH actually said yes to that too! Wow
Now I know it’s things normal peeps do..lol but we actually made PLANS that aren’t revolving around drs., hospital, surgeries..you get the picture. And it feels marvelous! ! I’m going to dye my hair, got some silver from all the stress..dye dh hair and beard..his is silver and white. He’s younger then me, and looks older poor guy..but he looks younger when I do his hair. He loves the attention. I’m gonna space my face, and airbrush on some makeup. .and put on a dress!!! I’m even going to IRON DHS shirt and pants.. I already packed our pool clothing and shoes!
Now, I have a question. What can I get our friends as a hostess girft!!!????? Nothing too expensive, she’d get mad, just something meaningful, not flowers..something maybe she could display that when they look at it they remember how much we appreciate that after all we’ve been through, they are still there. Some of our friends just kinda stopped calling cause we couldn’t go out all the time. Only a few remain, we understood, but at least we now know who cares the deepest and really want to be in our lives. And those are the ones we are going to be there for in return. No matter what.
I am popping in to say “hi” and that I miss talking with all of you. I probably won’t be able to comment very much until December since I start my fall semester classes on Monday (even though my first online class meetings aren’t until early September). I might be able to read posts when I am taking breaks from my homework, though.
Thanks everyone for letting me know the challenges DO end. It feels good to know there is light at the end of the tunnel. Lol. The only thing I don’t like about ’em is having to buy stuff from the wshop. I often don’t want that item, so I just resell it right away which is just a waste of kinzcash.
Steve did another report about the new polices. And supposedly they will or do have a way to track people trading illegally..then says but feel free to report it..lol sorry, but I’m guessing that IS really their only way..getting people to tattle. And the wording is VERY contradictory.. lots of people are confused.
Good Morning All ! I sure am behind in reading up on all the news of the blog ! “First Sunday ” without you know who !! Head to Olive Garden with my two sister and my Mom for lunch today…Girls day out I guess.. moms.. don’t have a fire pit or charcoal grill … so we do s’mores on the grill ! I guess not quite the same … but they sure are good ! Hey Patsie… Nice to hear from you and hope your school work goes well ! Bepsy.. congrats on passing your driver’s test ! WKN released pictures of the September acorn challenge… The scarecrow plushy is really cute ! Queen of Sheeba.. happy some of your kids are visiting.. Hope you enjoy your cookout…and your time with them ! I never really feel unsafe at work.. Access to the actual treatment area requires either a key or badge swipe in…We all have a panic button which can be used in case we need security… and despite being a distance from their office.. they come fairly quickly when needed….My guess is that this pt. will be discharged from the practice! dee… hope your time with your dd is a memorable visit… Did I gather that she will be studying out of the country ?? What a great experience ! One of my nieces took a class in Ireland her junior year and she loved it !! Chants… for hostess gift.. if she spends time in her yard..some flowers she could plant and would bloom each year..and remind her of you and your visit Have a good day everyone ! Enjoy your family and friends !
