    Ok, own up, who ate my like button?!

    Sooo the skinny is this: the LIKE system has been changed to a "reactions" system with this new update. You can like something, thank someone, "haha" someone, or be "sad" at their post. Of course we can customize these or add our own. These are all activated for everyone, nothing has changed except for one big issue: the current forum theme does not have any classes to display these new changes. Therefore it doesn't show up. If you cannot live without this feature while we get this sorted (the theme makers will have to update accordingly), the only thing you can do is change your forum theme to the default one. To do that: scroll to the very bottom of the forum. There will be a button called "THEME" Click it Select "Default" If you do not like it and want to revert, follow stops 1-3 and select Shift The LIKE button is now a HEART that you can either click to like the post or hover over for more reaction options. As for a back to top button, I am uncertain if that was also specific to our old theme and is no longer a function on this version of the forum software. Hope that helps!!!!

    I submitted it to the Art Gallery. I hope they'll use it for the Faerie Festival or for a winter-themed week in the future. I also submitted a little NQII comic to the Neopian Times but it was rejected for this week because they said there were "too many good submissions and not enough room", so I'll probably try again with that next week.

    I have a long history of not being chosen for the Caption Contest, so I decided it would be nice to make a topic for fellow rejectees to vent and share their captions. We don't need TNT/JumpStaff's stinkin' approval! *blows raspberry* Just kidding, of course we do. *sobs* How many of you sent in captions this round? I did, and pretty much all of my jokes were done by other people, in one way or another. #1 Bruce: Why isn't this working? I'm still Pink! Kacheek: Sir, I'm afraid this isn't how you turn yourself into a Chocolate pet... Meercas: *snickers* (mandatory "turning into chocolate" joke) #2 Meercas: ONE OF US! ONE OF US! (I kinda would have hated to be chosen for this one, but alas, this exact joke is there anyway) #3 Bruce: Milk chocolate? Seriously? I said 90% cacao, guys. (I think this is my least unoriginal one, but still, a variation of this was also done) #4 Bruce: Ugh, whose idea was it to leave the pinata out in the sun? Look at me, I'm covered in chocolate now! Kacheek: And this is an issue, because...? (bleh) Just to be clear, the point of this topic isn't to be seriously bitter about not being chosen, it's all in good fun! We'll make it in someday.

    Voting errors in The Runway #44

    @Nielo Since the previous theme no longer functions with this version of the forum, I have removed it. It was what was causing some users to not view certain threads or be able to vote in polls. As such, users will no longer see the Theme button as no other themes are available to select. Everyone should now be using the blue default theme.. by default

    @Scoobert_Doo the images are all in the source code. You can view it on Faerieland, even if you pushed thru the dialog. I don't know if people want spoilers or not but meet Alice Kaia!

    Hurricane Harvey

    Is anyone here from Texas dealing with Hurricane Harvey? I know that midnight_spell360 is from near Houston, which is flooding now. I searched and didn't see any posts about this yet. I hope you can stay safe and dry and that everything will be OK for you.

    Avatars: What have you got?

    Yay! I got another wheel avatar! Knowledge! I think that means the only wheel one I don't have is extravagance, which I don't spin. I just recently started actually trying for a few of them again, got monotony after a couple days, and this one after maybe a month? Super lucky. I know some people who try every day for years and still haven't gotten them. With Halloween coming up, I went ahead and got this one too, since I might want to use it. Something Has Happened!

    Hurricane Harvey

    @babayaga67 Sorry I haven't been on consistently. I had let ppl on The Kindness Project know how I am and just made it over to see what I could catch up on here at TDN. Day 3 of Harvey & I am blessed that I live in that tiniest green patch that you saw on the Doppler Radar of Harvey coming in at Rockport/Corpus Christi which is 150 miles away from us-and I am fine and not having flood water in my street, yard, or house BUT if I were to travel 15 minutes in any direction from my house- I would be in flood waters. I had a lot of friends who had their homes flooded and at least 2 friends who had to be boat rescued, so it is bad...but I am good. You better check on your Mom in Cypress, because my friends there have shot videos where they had flooding and Conroe is 10 minutes up the road (I-45) from me and the Sawdust Rd Exit (which is between my town, Spring, and Conroe) is under water tonight. I so hope that they are okay! Please everyone keep praying for all of us in Houston bc it is supposed to keep raining until Thursday.

    street food .. yay or nay ?

    Food is such a big part of the culture of any city, local or international! Don't miss out by avoiding street fare. I've eaten street faire in Mexico, central and S. America, Europe, the Caribbean, China, Japan...and street faire in Texas, NY, California and Florida. I've always been fine, and I got to enjoy some really amazing foods. I say definitely go for it, just be smart. If the place is not known for safe tap water, remember to also avoid ice in drinks, and to brush your teeth with bottled water. Generally the rule is to be sure the person handling the money is not the same person cooking. Money is actually very dirty. Similarly, if you see a big crowd, it's probably good, and if all the locals avoid it, you should too. Look for a crowd...there's a reason everyone wants to eat there! Better yet, ask people to recommend local places. They'll be happy to help, and pleased that you are willing to share in their culture.

    street food .. yay or nay ?

    Yes for street food. Where I'm from street food is a whole necessary part of life. There are guys that wouldn't have breakfast if it wasn't for street food! And when you leave a party/fete at 4 in the morning? You need street food to counteract that potential hangover and to silence the worms so you can sleep But seriously, I'd try street food in other countries because it's one way of experiencing their culture. Food is an integral part of culture around the world. But I am cautious. I'll faster try things that i see being cooked on the spot, especially deep fried or boiled or steamed. I'm relatively sure that any existing microbes would be dead and not enough time for a fresh colony to start multiplying. But probably not so much in India because when our auditors are sent over to the High Commission, they're told to pack their own bottled water . I've been to Caracas, Venezuela previously. First time and I was sick for the entire trip. I slept on the trip from the airport to the hotel so missed the lecture about not drinking the tap water. Well first thing I did when I got to my hotel room was fill a glass of water and drank because I was thirsty. Later that day and for the next 3 days, I vomited till I thought I'd upchuck my soul; but, best ab workout ever! I learnt to drink club soda on that trip because that was the only thing staying down. I was in a fog most of the time too. Probably totally dehydrated. The night before we left, we went to a restaurant and they ordered a bowl of beef soup for me. First thing I could eat without immediately puking. Best beef soup I ever ate too... probably because I thought I was going to die lol. So I'd try street food.... the local water on the other hand, that might probably kill you faster!

    Faerie Festival Is Here!

    So Wing It is working on Firefox for me now, so that's good. Not that I had any more success at that today than I did yesterday Maybe by the end of things I'll have managed to win some NP at least? We shall see. >_< I wonder how JS are reacting to the overwhelming level of MEH that this event has generated in Neopians...(I don't think it deserves full size letters) it really wouldn't have taken much more for most people to have been quite content with this, but no, JS drops the ball again. *sigh* There was me hoping this event would give them a chance to prove themselves, and I guess it has, lol... I think it's the quest thing that bugs me the most, they specify special quests to be had...there are none. "Linking" to the existing quests is just super lame, I quote that because it doesn't actually work for me, does it for anyone else? People on the boards are still hopeful of these special quests materialising later in the week, but if they're gonna be there they should have been available from the start or what's the point? Seriously JS, MEH. Wing It is a cute game, I'm not sure about it becoming a daily though, do you guys thinks that's likely? The items won from it will quickly become worthless if it does...

    Unfortunately, I didn't copy all of the dialogue, but if you visit Faerieland, you will see dialogue from Queen Fyora, calling for assistance from her faeries. She would like to have an actual Faerie Festival, this year! According to the Neo calendar, this years Faerie Festival is supposed to be on the 20th, of this month (September). This is exciting! If anyone happens to see the dialogue, please add it to this topic. In my time on Neopets, I've never "attended" the Faerie Festival. Like other days, it is usually just a theme day, with no actual events. I wonder what events will be planned? Can't wait to find out!
  21. 3 points
    Uuhh, I'm glad I didn't keep my expectations too high for this. It's like they say, you can't be disappointed if you don't have expectations... I had no idea what I was doing when I played the Wing It "game", but apparently it's supposed to be like Kiko Pop, but in the dark? Or a pin the tail on the donkey type thing, except it's pin the wing on the faerie Anyway, I got a Massive Ice Cream Sundae. I'm hoping to get the wearables next time, they're actually pretty cute from what I've seen on DTI!

    Faerie Festival Is Here!

    i won 200NP from the Wing It game impressive much not even an item ... seems to me NC is the main part of this event For the Festival, The Soup Kitchen has received extra dontations and will help regardless of your prosperity. Bring your hungry pet forward and let it eat to its heart's content. :)

    Faerie Festival Is Here!

    I was so looking forward to this event. I am so underwhelmed by this event Wing It doesn't work on firefox for me, I just get a black screen, it worked on chrome but I totally failed at it, lol. I'm hoping the "special quests" Fyora mentioned actually happen, it's just a (non-working) hub to the already existing quests right now, isn't it.. I could feed my main pet from the Soup Faerie as he was only very full rather than bloated, lol. I didn't think you could feed pets while they're in the Lodge, but maybe this event is over-riding that?

    Hurricane Irma

    I'm glad you got out early. So many people figured it wasn't going to get "that" bad and decided to wait and watch long enough that they didn't have time to make any decision to leave. Amica has started insuring in Florida again (in the last year or so I think)... Or at least did before this. I'd recommend them for insurance if you can. I like them. Tampa is definitely getting a lot of wind and rain, but houses are being built pretty strong these days, so as long as there's not too much nearby to be thrown through the house, it'll likely be OK. Irma is down to a Cat 2 right now, though a really really large one. So there may be more damage from the duration of wind and rain. And the fact that there are only so many people who can help clean up and restore power and other services, so resources may be spread thin, so recovery might be slow. Even with a lot of help coming (we've seen dozens of power trucks, some tree service trucks, and trucks that look like they are carrying supplies headed toward the storm) from 3 or more states away, there's going to be a lot to do. With Houston area still recovering, this will make it practically the whole southeast trying to rebound. Then, though they are forecasting that Jose will spin out in the Atlantic, they are also forecasting that there's a "wave" out near Africa still that they think may become Lee and also get up to Major Hurricane status.

    The Runway

    The news forums was used for the contest to draw attention to it on the Custo site, but since it's no longer being used, all Runway threads can be posted in the Runway forum if that would make it easier. Discussion is allowed in the news threads, but it was decided that we wanted to keep the Runway discussion limited to one area, this forum. With recent changes to our site and from your feedback, the way things have been done can be adjusted. As @deboratibi is the lady running the contest and knows what you all want, I'll leave that in her capable hands. I just wanted to pop in and let you know why things were being done this way.

    I found it! Programmers, just insert this .JPG into the code someplace. That will work, right?
  36. 3 points
    @Mouseykins, as a programmer, I learned that you should ALWAYS "idiot proof" any inputs. You have to account for any crazy thing someone might input, no matter how wrong it would be, and prevent anything that isn't what you want. While it's not necessarily a bug, it is a valid test case, and fairly easy code, pretty much the same as they use in neomail for to check if you will have trouble neomailing that person. While they are redesigning the site to make it work without flash, they should include a test case for this scenario. While obviously typing in a different, valid, username would be your fault, it would be nice to have it let us know if the username is nonexistent or frozen.

    Hurricane Harvey

    I hope that midnight is okay too. @midnight_spell360, when you get back on please let the nosy, I mean caring, people on TDN know how you are! My Grandfather had surgery this morning and I am still waiting to hear about how that went. I do know that the doctor performing the surgery had to catch a helicopter because he couldn't drive to the hospital with all of the flooding. My Granny broke her phone last night, so she is having trouble updating anyone about what's going on. Her house did not flood (yay!), and she said that most of the water had receded overnight during a lapse in the rain. The rest of my family are doing fine. I know that my mom hasn't had any flooding in her house (she lives in cypress, north of Houston), and my sister said that she was doing fine too (she lives in conroe, also north of Houston).

    Something Has Happened! You are now eligible to use 'Meowclops' as an avatar on the NeoBoards! Yay! I'm doing a good job of collecting the pet/petpet/item avatars! August 31: Something Has Happened! You are now eligible to use 'Zafara - Double Agent' as an avatar on the NeoBoards! September 1: Just got the Kelp avatar! I guess it doesn't do the notification, or if it did, I didn't see it. So I kept trying, and wasted about 150k before I ran out of NP on hand and went and double checked my avatar list and saw it there. Is the Kelp avatar random when you take home leftovers, or always the first time you take home leftovers, which is itself random?

    street food .. yay or nay ?

    Gosh, you can't go to NYC without having a pretzel from the street vendor the size of your head, or hot roasted chestnuts during the holiday season. I think there are some things I would stay away from (deep fried tarantulas, chocolate covered crickets- to each their own) but yes, I think I may sample certain items.

    street food .. yay or nay ?

    Tough question that, isn't it. People say things like "only buy from places that you see the locals using", which is sound advice as far as it goes, but are you meant to stalk the streets - getting hungrier and hungrier in the process - doing a head count and checking people's IDs? xD It's not always that practical. I have very little experience of traveling, so I can't really give much of a useful opinion. Let's look at this from a different angle...would you be more likely to buy a hotdog from a cart in NYC, than you would be to buy a pakora from a cart in Mumbai... Because (I suspect) the average person expects to drop down dead if they eat Indian street food, but will happily buy a hotdog in New York, when in reality that 'dog could be just as likely to have you glued to the toilet for the next week... It's all a matter of perception, isn't it. OFC for people like Angelo, Neilo and myself, America is a foreign country so it counts for this topic. But what I'm saying here is, people kind of expect to get sick from the food in developing or eastern countries, but it maybe doesn't even enter their heads in western places. But people get sick from eating food in places like India because the meat isn't crammed full of antibiotics like it is in a lot of western countries, and our systems can't handle the higher (but perfectly natural and normal) bacteria levels that it contains. Get sick from that snack from the Big Apple hotdog vendor and it's far more likely to be from poor food hygiene practices. : /

    Happy Grundo Day!

    OMG, I didn't pick up on the Shrek thing AT ALL! Of course Shrek looks like a green Grundo! Well that's awesome, it shows that some current TNT member has some imagination and a sense of fun (unless this is an outfit that's been gathering dust for ages). Making a Shrek cosplay would be fun!

Just when you start to get used to the "new" changes, something new changes... Oh, @jellysundae, just so you know, the "like" button tastes like chicken, and could use more salt. I'd give you a "like" for starting this topic, but... (Just kidding. I did give you one, and thanks for starting this.

    street food .. yay or nay ?

    Well, the don't drink the water thing is not because it is necessarily unsafe, but more to the thing said about meat above where our bodies aren't used to it. I think most of the developed world, if it isn't on well water, then it's safe to drink. I think water treatments standards are getting to be pretty standard. But, again, better safe than sorry. And if it is well water, then it will almost certainly have different microorganisms than you are used to. Certainly don't drink from random streams or anything. Otherwise, it's only if there is some unusual hazard, or just bad tasting.
