I went to do my dailies before going to bed and Esophagor out of all things decided to give me Gourmet Cooking For Your Pet O_O
I stuck it in the auction for 1,4 mil in hope of returning the np I spent yesterday for the avatar and one hour later it sold for 2,4 mil!
I's still balancing between squee and shock on this one. Did that really just happen?

Haha, nice zebru!

E, I hope they see the account and recognize it as yours. That's really bizarre. :-/

As for me, I got a Premium SHH email for a rare item, and it's an Air Faerie Charm. I hadn't seen one before, and there are only 4 in the TP. I have mine set the lowest, at 680K.

And now I'll see if I can find a new home for this Grey Lupe. Too bad he's a recent zap and therefore converted. He's still neat though.

I found the second post absolutely hilarious...then I noticed the one below it.

Needless to say that 3rd poster probably is in Iceland now. (I really wish I could upload it on Rendivir's page, but this is good enough :) )

I got my birthday-locked account back! I sent in one last 'help can't remember the birth date' message in through the lost password form and finally got a personalized response. Supplied them with a bit more information and they just e-mailed me the birth date I had signed up with. I never would have guessed it as it's both the wrong month and year. Tried so hard to convince myself it was no big deal to lose the account (just pixels, just pixels), but pffft it's so exciting to have those pets back. :D

Yay PQ! I remember you asking here and I immediately checked my Neofriends to no avail. I'm really glad you got it back though, I've always liked Axehl and it would suck to lose all those great pets. :D

Sent another frozen form in this morning.

Unfrozen this evening.

Yays :0)

On the downside, my bank account's been cleared out. A bit shy of 9 million gone, which is obviously a bit upsetting.

But everything else seems to be fine as far as I can see - stocks, SDB, weapons, closet... I can't think where else to check. (My shop was empty, I have no gallery.)

They seem to have been about to start trading my items away - there's a pb, a couple of transmogs and a 95k weapon in my inventory after the assortment of crap they used to get my money off my account. They left all my tarla pbs in my sdb though. Nice to know that I own 4 whole items scammers consider worth stealing :0P

So it looks like that's it. Lost a shit load of money (since I've never spent much, that's basically the spoils of 8 years of playing) but my pets and items and such are fine. So I'm not really sure how to feel about that. Honestly, I think it's having the account itself back which was most important to me, and I've got that :0)

Yay at being unfrozen and TNT finally recognising that you exist!

Sorry to hear you lost so much np though :/ I guess at least the really irreplaceable things- pets, trophies and so on- are still there, which is most important.

That's crazy E. I thought it was surprising enough to have your account "lost" like that but it's terrible to have it have been gotten into and nearly cleaned out. Ooof. At least you have it back.

As for me, I'm having the opposite luck.

I had a petpage of mine stolen, not really that exciting, I just had a page with pets up for trade and someone copied it almost identically (they added a background image rather than a solid color) for their own pets.

I reported this, cause you know, I don't like thieves, but the page might've been changed enough that the report wasn't credible (although I'm not sure why that wouldn't be considered by whatever staff reviewed it). I did make a complaining board about it, but I didn't mention the user name (or hint or anything other than it happened) anywhere to be considered harassment. Or so I thought?

Well, I'm leaving in a bit for what should be a fun weekend, so the suspension doesn't bother me. Mostly the idea of the thing. Huh.

Congrats PharaonicQuiche and EofS (though sorry about all those NPs, ouch), and sorry thelonetiel, for both the coding theft and the unwarranted suspension.

Congrats E!Sorry to hear your bank was wiped out - though looking on the bright side, NP is probably the least personalised of all the things you could lose on your account (pets, etc.)

Tiel... odd for them to suspend right off the bat, I'd've thought they would've warned you first.

Congrats, PQ and E (despite the NPs, ick)! And that really stinks, Tiel. Hm! Odd times, they are.

I've got a whole string of names I'm contemplating for a Maraquan Uni. Now I've just got to decide which one I like the best. Yay for alternate spellings that don't look completely stupid as a name. :-)

And I have another lab-adopter who will likely be zapped for a LONG time since I've decided pretty firmly on Ice with the name, though Snow is astoundingly cheap and could technically work too.

And browsing through some other people's pet pages has sort of tempted me to try some artsy stuff again. Maybe I can tuck that feeling away so it'll grow and be useful.

EDIT: I just had a silly time trying to create a Uni named Karabyn and mark her as "living in the Sea." Well, she WILL, but apparently the creation process didn't like that and kept giving me little red error message: Oops! Please check. - Database error! Please try again.

So I tried with 4 different browsers, no go. I tried with a Peophin, and it worked like magic. :-P GUMPs are cheap anyway, I stock up on them for labbing atrocities.

And now my bank account is almost nearly depleted with an 8.6 million np Maraquan PB purchase. But I have a very pretty Karabyn!
