    Yeah, that's about what I do, try to hold out for 70s, preferably mid-70s. I've decided I'd rather get my good profit than wait forever for the possibility of a huge profit. I sold most of my DROO yesterday while it was in the 80s. 7k at 80, I think, then I think I found it like 82 maybe a little higher, and sold another 4k, and now I have 2k.
  3. hello!

    Thank you . Yeah, I thought it seemed like it was probably not a highly sought after item. I almost looked past it, but was having such trouble with wigs I thought would look nice, that I got to the point that I was just trying them all and I was like "oh, actually, that looks super good on you AnandaJo!"
  4. hello!

    Ah, okay! Sorry, I was in explanation mode lol You can always keep items you really like in a list set to private, and make a list of stuff you're willing to trade set to either trading or jusr public =) I like making themed outfits, so that's where my WL comes from! Like... https://impress.openneo.net/outfits/1208835 based on the show Voltron: Legendary Defender Re: Jewel Toned Wig I actually have one of those on my Biscuit Gelert! https://impress.openneo.net/outfits/1059869 (He's just based on a character from a story a friend of mine is writing) I'm pretty sure I've seen it in a few 2:1 trades. I'll see if I can grab an extra for you =)

    Yeah, there must be people out there who never sell because they're always holding out for more. I do tend to eschew anything below mid 70s now, but I try not to beat myself up if what I sold at 76 ends up at 125, lol. I've still made a BIG profit, so I'm not gonna cry because I didn't make a HUGE one. People do tend to focus way too much on what they've missed out on, rather than being really pleased with what they've actually achieved, really unfortunate human trait that :^/
  6. hello!

    Oh, yes, I know people generally make a list of things they want to trade. I was asking Jelly if she's set one up yet that I could look through. Or if she's just doing from the mall, because if she just started trading, she might not have that many NC items that she doesn't want anymore. I have my items on DTI as owned, but not UFT, though I guess that didn't matter to the person who contacted me last week trying to trade for a foreground. *shrug* I don't have a tradelist, as I've never tried to do NC trading before. I don't even really pay that much attention to what is or has been in the mall, so I don't even really know what I might want. The item I liked that they had was Jewel Toned Wig It's a nice shape for my pastel ixi's head, and it looks good with her coloring. Almost natural, though that sounds counter-intuitive, because her fur is a lighter purple color. I guess this is mine, I tried to find a few to start a trade list, but I'd probably just decide case by case, do I want x more than I want y? http://impress.openneo.net/user/31571-balloongal247/closet

  8. hello!

    @jellysundae Sure! =) Do you have anything from my WL? If not, I can look through your tradelist for something I might like anyways! (If you don't have one set up yet, DTI and JN both have the option to import a list from what you have in your closet/SDB). @balloongal247 You have a list of things you want to trade, generally! I use DTI almost exclusively, because looking through a mile of someone's TL on jellyneo without that handy "Compare with Your Items" button DTI has... just makes me tired lol. Trading for items in the mall can work out very well though; the 'Pumpkin Harvest Retired Mystery Capsule' is full of re-released items, some of them very valuable, so people will trade for something like that often at the same value of GBCs, even though the RR cap is 150NC and a GBC is 200NC. Same with the 'Autumn Moon Mystery Capsule'- the new fall items have been very popular, and the bonus items are pretty valuable. You totally made the right call though; your item is worth at least two, if not four, of the other persons 1-2 item! With most 1-2 value items, you will Definitely find someone willing to trade it at the 1 value. What item are you looking for, btw? I can try to find a good deal on it =) Though you can also go looking on your own! If you click on the item on DTI, you'll get a preview page that also has lists of who is trading and who is seeking that item. You can click on the TLs of the people who have one, click the compare button at the top of the page, and see if any of your items are on their WL. If you want to link me your TL, I can help you look!
  9. The Official Stock Market Board

    Yeah, I rarely sell all of my shares at once, usually only the 3rd or 4th time I'm selling in a streak, if then. Theoretically my hold point is 60, but then above 60, I'm like, OK, how much do I need to have out to do my food club bets without having to pull np out of the bank, ok, I'll just sell that much... And have been trying to wait until at least 70 for real selling, and trying to hold out as much as possible. This time I sold more earlier though, because a lot of the time lately, I've been waiting, and then it drops back down... And then there was a few days where I was trying to make extra np to buy a bigger item without cutting into my savings too much, and my stocks weren't cooperating, and I was like, if only I'd sold them when they were good! But then others that are high now, I did sell when they were 70s 80s whatever, and then they went into the 100s and I was sad that I'd sold too early. So, you just have to decide what you want. But I think it's pretty rare to get them to 100, so you may have to wait a long time to sell all your stocks that high.
  10. Faerie Festival - For Real, This Year?!

    That happens every year on 9/20. It's a conditional in the code from way year's past, not something they manually do when they release the news. Much like the free training. So we get it today, but they'll tell us about it "tomorrow".
  11. hello!

    Jelly, I also don't really understand the NC trading... Do you have a list of things you are willing to trade, or are you just doing things in the mall now? I have a decent selection of NC items, mostly from gifts... Someone tried to trade for one of mine recently after seeing I owned it on DTI. But, from the guides, mine was 3-4, and the only thing they had that I was like "hmm, yeah, that'd be good...." was 1-2, I might try to get that wig from someone else though... It was one of the few wigs I've found that doesn't make my ixi look like she has a deformed head. Most either make her have a giant forehead, or a really pointy head.
  12. The Lab Rays: What happened today?

    The ray is fired at randomsilliness... ... and he changes into a Blue Peophin!! Whoa... did it actually work? Sure looks like it. Your Petpet has been transformed. Imagine that.
  13. Faerie Festival - For Real, This Year?!

    It's like @deboratibi said, they MEAN well... Bless 'em. All the things I've said about hoping this Faerie Festival goes well is basically me hoping to avert disaster, because I'm TOTALLY expecting some kind of hot mess during the proceedings. >_< Something not at all necessary but very nice has been done though, look! The Water Faerie says a few magical words and... In celebration of the Faerie Festival, all your Neopets have their health completely restored!!!
  14. hello!

    It really IS a messy system isn't it! I don't understand why Neo doesn't have its own trading system for NC items, they've really dropped the ball there I looked at your items and you have the Autumn Harvest Market Background that I've been coveting since I first saw it. Fancy combining some learning for me with some benefit to yourself?
  15. Happy Poogle Day!

    I'd not have known that was a Chucky outfit so thanks for adding me to the list of traumatised people, @Angeló I really want to like the candy, I really do, but as others say it's pretty lacklustre, it's like "it's 17:01 and I'm outta here!" *throws sprinkles over last badly-dipped bonbon on the way past* The colours of the body look good, they look tasty, but the finish of the creamy part is so damn SHINY, it looks like you'd break your teeth on it. The polka dot one looks horrible It looks GREY for a start, and um, yeah, that's another nasty case of Skittlespox
  16. The Official Stock Market Board

    You're doing so well! *wipes proud tear* I missed the peak yesterday, I sat watching it fluctuate then sold 10k @ 86. I'm glad I did because it's bottomed out at the moment, right down to 69. Selling half is an option I'm growing rather fond of I have to say, good old bet-hedging! Far less of that sinking feeling from having missed out altogether.
  17. Happy Poogle Day!

    can you imagine a MSP Poogle wearing those clothes ?!! Epic !!

  19. Happy Poogle Day!

    Oh my goodness, Chucky was my only real horror movie trauma as a kid. Leave it to the Poogles to dress like him! My first thought with the candy one was definitely a bonbon.
  20. Happy Poogle Day!

    I thought maybe they were going for a freckle, but the white chocolate bit doesn't make sense. It's an odd one, but I don't hate it, we can thank TNT for not giving us something hideous (transparent pb i'm looking at you)
  21. Happy Poogle Day!

    The truffles/bonbons with sprinkles on top is quite common on instagram, so I could see how the artist was inspired by that. But i agree that it should have been a chocolate poogle instead. That said, I really like both colours and am tempted to morph my lab rat into a poogle
  22. Happy Poogle Day!

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't understand the "sprinkle hat." (Nice phrase there, @kirschteins!) @Scoobert_Doo that's a good point, I kind of forgot that it's almost Halloween. Still definitely not my favorite choice for the outfit, but at least there's some logic behind it...that's more than we can say for most of what TNT does.
  23. Happy Poogle Day!

    My first thought was actually that it looked a bit like a flan, but I'm assuming it's supposed to be some kind of fancy taffy. I do not understand the sprinkle hat either though, @kayahtik.
  24. Happy Poogle Day!

    I'm the opposite of Angeló. Like @kayahtik, I don't really get the Candy Poogle. It seems "lack-luster", to me, and looks more chocolate. I think it is supposed to look like a bonbon or truffle, but I've never seen any with candy confetti sprinkles, on top. As for the Polka-Dot, I like it. I just like the "polka-dot" look, on most Neopets. So, I guess I'm kinda biased. And "Chucky" clothes?! Well, I guess Halloween is around the corner, and some Poogle can dress up as Chucky. Just don't come trick-or-treating to my house, please.
  25. hello!

    Glad to be at least a little bit useful! It's a messy system, but trading for something you really want is great! I just got an Autumn Forest Clearing Background for one of my pets on a side, and it made me so happy to finally have it and to have found a good trade =)
  26. Yesterday
  27. Happy Poogle Day!

    my labrat just got zapped poogle the other day, and I took a close look at him and realize how poogles have this weird baby neck thing going on, where they have that chin and then that neck fold right underneath. I don't know how to describe it other than being like a baby's neck, but I really don't like it haha ;w; I also don't get what the candy is. Like if I didn't know it was supposed to be candy, I'd have no idea! Maybe it's some kind of weird specific delicacy or something??
  28. Happy Poogle Day!

    Oh my god. When I first saw the outfit I thought it was just a cute little coverall set and I liked it quite a bit, but now that you've pointed out the Chucky look I can't unsee it and now I'm creeped the heck out. Anyway... I don't really get the candy? Does anyone recognize it? I thought it was chocolate at first, which doesn't make sense cause that's its own color. The colored sprinkles on top look out of place to me. Polka-dot is ok, it's nice that the spots have some dimension, but I think the stripes look funny. Maybe they should've left off the stripes, or maybe just left that area solid white with no spots, so it would be a little subtler than the blue.
