Re: Maractite and Biscuit Techo

I keep seeing the chocolate chips in the tail as eyes in the flesh.... Kinda creepy. I like it.

Re: RL Achievements and ToW

I get to go see Randall Monroe on his What if? book tour next week! Tickets have been sold out for ages, but a friend ended up with conflicting events that night and gave me his set (well, I bought him dinner and drinks in trade). I'm pretty excited.

Re: Post minor achievements/woes here!

The one on the left is a revamped Beauty Contest Trophy I'm pretty sure, they were redone recentlyish. The one on the right (with the usul) is PPL I think.

Re: Desert Diplomacy (plot/event/puzzle)

I stayed up a little too late working it out last night. And then found a Google cache version of a Reddit post that had the answers, so I could confirm. x) So assuming that person didn't make the same mistakes I did, I think I'm good. I admit that I did guess at one point, I tried some of the "...

Re: Greetings. Long time no see.

Yay, Xelio! It's super nice seeing old faces again. I've missed you guys. I do love those little sheepies! It's funny how much av and sig changing used to go on, and I'm pretty sure I've had this set I'm using now since 2007 when I went to Argentina. I barely do any graphic design these days. I have...

Re: Tyrannian and Gold Ruki

A Tyrannian Ruki should just be a GIANT ruki. But I guess that would be hard to implement.

Re: Neopets (and Donna) mentioned on the BBC... briefly

I am not surprised at all... But then, I feel like the Wikipedia article about Neopets introduced me to the idea that they were pioneers in the subject back when it was still under Doug Dohring's reign. I'm pretty sure that was in the "Criticism" section at the time (or should have been). ...

Re: Good photo hosting sites?

I want a new host, because Photobucket has dimension limits. Last time I tried to make something, my background kept getting resized, and I gave up. Hard to be inspired to do coding, when I can't get the background to work. :( (Photobucket has other issues too: They've slowly made their site more an...

Re: Maractite and Dimensional Kau

Is it trying to be a Taco Bell sign? I don't get the bell either, unless the artist just forgot that kaus don't normally have been accessories. It'd be neat if it were removable clothing though, to use in other outfits. The Maractite mustache is my least favorite, but the lower lip markings are nice...

Re: Neopets Founder AMA

The Meteor Games story just made me want to hit things. What awesome concepts, and terrible, terrible management. I also found the mentions of featheralley interesting - apparently she was a monitor and was using/abusing admin privileges? I kinda wish that had been expanded on more, I was always cur...

Re: Plot?! Broken random events and a Moltaran portal...

I didn't realize until reading last week's editorial that random events were pretty much entirely revamped. If anyone else is curious, JellyNeo seems to have compiled all (?) of them. I am pleased to see some of the art revamped, like the Grundo Leader! http://images.neopets.com/randomevents/images/...

Re: Plot?! Broken random events and a Moltaran portal...

So the portal has been unlocked! You get to join Dr. Landelbrot aboard the spaceship The Coincidence . Because in Neopia, cell phones and cars are too technologically advanced, but orbital space craft is easy. Anyway, Dr. Landelbrot (gosh I'm entertained by the name), is trying to fix the random eve...

Good point Wings, I wouldn't've have realized. Since you asked, I'm very inactive on the site - so everyone can please dance with those that'll appreciate and reciprocate appropriately!

Plot?! Broken random events and a Moltaran portal...

Something is afoot on the site! Some lutari has hacked into the random event matrix and is using it to (poorly) transmit messages. Which, quite frankly, is really annoying because I was hoping to take advantage of increased random events. Do you know I've had my account over 10 years now and never s...

Re: Neopets App

Oh my gosh. You guys. I have resisted getting a smart phone (well, have not found it worth the price) for years. I'm pretty sure a decent Neopets mobile app would swing me towards the smart phone crowd. I've been debating for a while now, and this might tip the scales. I always look at mobile games ...
