Zoinks Points, an online program launched in 2009 has been quietly taken offline. The interactive site, previously available at the URL http://www.zoinkspoints.kidswb.com, now simply redirects to the main KidsWB website.
Originally, Zoinks Points had been an interactive site, which allowed fans to purchase various characters, monsters and backgrounds to make their own fan art. Members of the site could purchase items by earning points, through entering codes found on the back of Scooby-Doo merchandise. However, in 2013, Zoinks Points completely redesigned their site and eliminated the fan art option from the site. Instead, members now could use their points to gain access to Scooby-Doo games and downloads. After early 2016, the site stopped being updated with new content, though users were still able to purchase various games and downloads with their accumulated points.
While most of the games on the site are now unavailable, there are still a few which were moved to the main KidsWB site. As an aside, there is also a brand new game that has been added to the KidsWB site, entitled "Scooby-Doo and the Haunted House." The game entails collecting various clues and keys in order to defeat the four villains haunting the house, including the Green Ghost, the Wolfman, The Ghost of Elias Kingston (referred to in the game as simply "The Kingston," which is actually quite amusing) and The Black Knight. You can play the new game here.
It should be noted, however, that the site is still partially accessible if you type in this URL, though you'll notice that the top of the page says "Moved permanently: This document has moved" which leads me to believe that this is simply a glitch, and will likely soon be redirected as well.

That's a real shame - although I didn't fancy the redesign, the original was so much cooler and got me excited (I was 10 years old when it first launched).

I disliked the redesigned site as well, though oddly I felt myself getting all nostalgic when I was writing this post. I loved the original so much, and wish they would have included the season 2 SDMI villains!

I remember being so hopeful about getting the Fish Freaks from Season 1, but they were always sold out! I had all the Season 1 SDMI villains except that one, so as you can imagine I was so pumped about getting one someday. Never did manage to get one. :(

After a long time without entering the website of Zoinks Points I have been very saddened to see that it is closed. And it saddens me even more that this is the only mention in all Internet (as far as I know) that speaks of the quiet closure of the web :(

It's also mentioned on the ScoobyAddicts forum, but that was posted by myself as well. I got all the season 1 images other than the Fish Freaks, which were "sold out" (I'm not sure how it's possible to sell out of a free digital item, but whatever). I wish they would have kept updating it as well.

Oh, really? Thank you so much, I'm really grateful! Could you send them all — as many as you want or can — to firstname.lastname@example.org?

I just sent them.

The new WB site you mean? Yeah, I agree it's not the best.
