Re: Trudy's Surprise! A new daily

I know. This is just the first time I've managed to remember to do it every day for long enough to get that far. I've been close a few times and then missed a day by accident.

Re: Trudy's Surprise! A new daily

I finally managed to remember to do this every day for long enough to get the 100k, woohoo. Now I can go back to being forgetful.

Re: NC Holiday Card Exchange 2015??

Oh shit, how did I miss this! Especially when I have wondered more than once about it whilst walking home from work... Good job I spotted it in time.

Aka, hell yes.

Re: Dimensional and Transparent Peophin

The original looks more like the quick thumbnail sketch you'd absentmindedly doodle in the meeting after somebody suggests transparent for this year's Peophin Day. I'm impressed that they redrew it.

Re: Silver and Gold Kau

I had hoped maybe the weird hooves were some sort of reference to Mooby the Golden Calf, but I don't think they are.

Re: Gauging interest in Neopets talk

Nothing reminds you how much you love(d) something quite like knowing it could be gone forever. There's a great comfort in the knowledge that ok, right now I'm not interested, but if I get interested again it'll all still be there.

Re: Layoffs at Neopets

Oh no! That's awful news. I hope they're able to find new work soon. Dreadful to have (apparently) no notice though. Doesn't look good for the site either. Looks like they've kept enough staff (in the right categories) to maintain what they've got at present, but you can't keep a site alive for long...

Re: Real Life Resolutions/Goals for 2015 (and 2014 updates!)

I'm not into resolutions, but thanks to Madge mentioning Duolingo last year I now have a 370 day streak learning German. It should be 371 but DL messed up and switched my timezone at one point (rrrr!) so a day got skipped. (Another day I skipped myself, through sheer stupidity.) So this year I'm hop...

Re: Halloween Pet Predictions!

I voted for Elephante because I think that's what they'll do - but I would like to see a Halloween Ogrin. I think they could get very creative, playing with its innate chimerical form. Maybe something along the lines of Frankenstein's Monster. It could be patched together from different creatures - ...

Re: Desert Diplomacy (plot/event/puzzle)

Definitely no guessing. In fact, at one point we screenshotted and made a guess (on one of the either/or clues) and managed to work out the whole grid. Then went back to our original grid, found a new way into it, solved the whole thing (and checked it against all clues) and it did NOT tally with ou...

Re: Desert Diplomacy (plot/event/puzzle)

I had three guild/item/time/method combos totally worked out, so I was not entirely amused. My grid looks much sparser now I've had to start again. Booo TNT, booo. Not nice changing the goalposts like that!

Re: Map Critiques Wanted

Looks good. I wonder whether it would be possible to switch Brightvale and Meridell? It's always bothered me that when they published this map, Brightvale is shown as the nearer land - which makes no sense because it was discovered later. (Not that it makes enormous sense having them on a peninsula ...
