Due to recent news regarding the heightened transmissibility of the Covid-19 Delta variant and continued rise in infections and cases, American Girl Vacations has canceled both planned trips for 2021 and postponed them to unknown dates.
No further vacation packages have been announced, though the website has stated at present there may be 2022 vacation packages. Those who had booked vacations were sent notice of the cancellation and a small care package of American Girl items in apology.
Clarifications of use of User Pages have been made; while much of this has been implemented in some form since June, they are being further solidified so as to avoid ambiguity in interpretation. The main thing to retain is that your User Page is not your primary contribution to this wiki, and that we are not a fandom hub and thus will encourage all users to focus their editing attention on the main pages. Furthermore, inactive editors should not return only to immediately return to adjusting a personal page.
If admins detect that a user is editing their personal page in such a way that it shows more personal focus rather than contributing to the project (or an inactive user returns after a span of a year or more with no contributions to the project and only focuses on their user page) user will be warned once to contribute properly to the project. If the user page continue to be focused on rather than the primary project needs, a user's page will be temporarily protected for a minimum of a month to encourage focus on the project. The time can be removed and the page unprotected after at least twenty good faith contributing edits have been made for at least a month (both obligations must be fulfilled), but can be placed again if they fail to contribute again.
Users should be familiar with our policies when they sign up to edit, which are linked in the side column.
For the WellieWishers, all five were given new meet outfits and now each is paired with a book focusing on the character. They also now all share a new set of accessories, the Magical Llamacorn Accessories, which can be purchased at discount with a doll purchase. Other items:
Aug 5th, 2021 / 2021 Benefit Sale Update - Limits, Ticket Sales, and More Data
Updates on the American Girl Benefit Sale were announced today. In a first, the purchase limits are being announced before ticket sales are available so as to offer people full information before purchasing, and a double lottery will be used to offer everyone a fair chance at the limited number of tickets.
Ticket Sales Lottery and Purchase: Aug 25–26 will be the ticket purchase lottery sign-up; forms will be sent out and available on the website and Facebook page entering the pool for the chance to buy one ticket per person, and only one entry per person will be accepted. From the pool of applicants, people will be informed if they are selected to buy tickets or not by August 27. From August 27th-30th, those who have been selected to purchase tickets will be given the link to allow them to purchase their ticket. Tickets this year cost $12, all sales are final, and limits are one ticket per e-mail/household. Ineligible ticket purchases will be refunded minus a $4-per-ticket fee and and violators may be denied future ticket sales. Shopping times will be randomly assigned to all purchased tickets, with results sent by email to all ticket holders.
Ticket Transfers and Purchase Verification:: If a purchaser cannot, for whatever reason, use their ticket--or purchased on behalf of another--then from Sept 1-8th, the ticket can be reassigned using the website, similar to last year. Every email address associated with a ticket must have their online account verified with the Shopify website before the benefit sale or they will not be able to shop; account verification will be open from Sept 13-24th.
Shopping: Shopping will be only on Sept 25th.
Purchase Limits: At present, the purchase limits will be a sum total of three dolls and two accessories per ticket holder. This is for all dolls in a collective pool--all 18" dolls (Historical, CYO, Modern, and GotY), Bitty Baby, and Bitty Baby gift boxes--and all accessories. There have been no statements on WellieWishers doll availability.
Costs per doll are as follows:
* $60 for Truly Me dolls
* $120 for Create-Your-Own dolls
* $70 for Character Dolls (Historicals, GotY, and Contemporary Characters)
* $40 for Bitty Baby
* $60 for the Bitty Baby Gift Set
Accessories such as furniture, pets, clothing, etc., will be individually priced. Items are not reserved until checkout and may sell out while shopping.
Post Sale Pick Up: From October 9-24--weekends only--orders will be available for in-person pickup at the new warehouse in Middleton. Shoppers will have the opportunity to select from available pickup times, as well as designate a proxy to pick up orders. Further info on pickup procedures will be provided in future updates.
Bonus Book Buy: As shopping will be tricky and not leave much chance to browse books, a special Bonus Book Buy will be available after the main sale has concluded, where all ticketholders will be able to log back in again and shop for books. Exact times and log-in details for this will be sent out to ticketholders before the sale.
Due to the significant limits on purchase and lack of ticket guarantee, AGBS advises against planning a trip to the sale that involves traveling a long distance. More specific details are available on the official website at American Girl Benefit Sale.
