  1. To my friends: Neopets has frozen my account for some reason. The message when I try to log in says it was for cheating. This is not the case. I will contact them and try to get my account back. If you have any advice I'd appreciate it. Thanks.Β

    The Trek Up North

    Hi Meg, good luck on your move "up north: to Philly πŸ””. I haven't read all of the above yet. If you are moving to a more urban area than you are used to, will you be OK or have you considered living in a more suburban area near the city? I'm in rural Michigan BTW. Maybe you could find a forum of Philly area topics and ask some locals too. And remember than it takes a range of opinions to get an accurate reading on anything. Keep us informed on what you learn. https://wikitravel.org/en/Philadelphia https://wikitravel.org/en/Philadelphia_Region I just checked the snowfall average there. My part of Michigan gets TRIPLE what they get. ❄️⛄

    Yay, for birthdays????

    Happy Birthday πŸŽ‚ 🎁 Brian! I'm glad you were able to enjoy it (despite the rain). β˜”
  4. Hi Gypsy, if you could paint him any colors, what would your favorite choices be? This should be about making your dream pet. Who knows, you could get a Fountain Faerie Quest soon. It's also better to imagine what you'd like someday than to just settle for whatever now. You may have to wait, but meanwhile, think big. Here is a link to all the available Lutari colors for you to consider (click the pics to enlarge). I've never had one myself but I like their energy. But if you'd like to keep him Cloud for now, we can look at various wardrobe options for that. What activities and settings do you like for him? https://items.thedailyneopets.com/colors/show?species=53&color=

    What is it like where you live?

    Hi Kute. This is a great topic. I'm surprised that no one else has replied yet. I'll just give a brief reply for now. I'm from a rural area of Michigan. It's very white racially in the countryside but the cities are more diverse. Climate wise, we have four seasons, or as some would describe it, Winter and then every thing else. Winter lasts from late November through March here, with a chance of snow during all of those months, and an average of over 6 feet of the white stuff. And this isn't even the "snowy" part of Michigan ("up north" is). Unlike much of the Midwest, we are surrounded by the Great Lakes, and have beautiful sunsets on Lake Michigan and Lake Superior. There are countless small inland lakes and rivers too, so you are always within walking distance to fresh water here. I love animals, and can watch wildlife from my windows. Recently, I've seen deer, rabbits, and baby woodchucks (ground hogs). Some Summers I've seen coyotes in my yard, and have heard them already this Spring at night. The loudest sound in the morning are all of the variety of birds, both large and small. The trees we have include oak, maple, cherry, and pine. I Googled and found this link to a Michigan photographer. See the top ("Galleries") for many more photos. http://www.michigannutphotography.com/
  6. Many people have debit cards here too, usually issued from our banks. I have both debit and credit cards and use them at different times. I should have made that clearer. I think a gift card may actually be more like a debit card, in that it is limited in how much you can use it for (the amount you paid, such as $50). BTW, we have ALDI stores here too. I shop there sometimes. And use a credit card.
  7. That's fascinating to me. I'm curious to hear from JS about the UK for comparison. Here in the U.S. we use credit cards for groceries (and pumping gas) and every other retail purchase if the amount is more than the cash we have in our wallets, and sometimes even if we have plenty of cash on hand. There are other reasons such as getting money back for a defective product. The companies also give points for usage over time which can be redeemed later. As for gift cards, they are often on display either in the check out lanes or in special displays. They are also frequently given as an alternative to buying an actual present for someone, hence the name "gift" cards, and the image of a wrapped box on them. 🎁 Using one won't raise red flags with one's regular credit card company because it's a completely separate thing, even if you have a CC from the same company that issues the gift card. For online purchases, think of it like a wallet of e-cash.
  8. I wasn't even thinking about Neopets gift cards. I meant $50 or $100 gift cards that are from credit card companies such as VISA and others that are sold in grocery and other retail stores. Then input the numbers as you would a regular credit card.
  9. I haven't paid for NC yet. I sometimes make online purchases with a CC. I have also used gift cards online a few times. You may want to try that. Buy one or two from a local store and keep track of how much you have used from them.

    Your Fashion Counselor!

    WOW Amazing work Yuiina! I didn't expect THAT many backgrounds and foregrounds, but I like them! I have already seen some of them, but many are new to me. I'll post more later after I've had time to process all of this. Coincidentally, I chose that stairway for one of the Ruki looks as well. Thanks again!

    how do u meet ppl on the internet? This is how I usually do it. First I choose the right tunnel and then I keep walking until I find them... ...or they find me. . Welcome to TDN, enjoy your stay. (not creepy at all)

    Help? Was I frozen?

    Here is a cap of your page. It says you were "Last Spotted: Under one day ago". Would that be you or someone else? Have you logged in with a different device or location? I just sent you a Neomail. If you have your email set to receive notifications, you should see it. Let me know if you get my message. If you don't, then maybe someone changed the account to send to a different email address.

    Help Me Decide ???

    I'm curious, Angelo. Did I miss an update on this? What did you decide and how did it go?

    Daily Faerie Quests Are Back!

    So is it official then, that the boots are THE prize for doing this everyday? Or is there just a lag in their giving us something special like in past years? I had one green check mark for the Negg event and had consoled myself that I'd be sure to visit the quest page every day.

    Day 9 - Kou-Jong [Team Challenge]

    I know exactly how you feel. For some reason, I have this game favorited and punish myself with it frequently. So many times the first two stages go quickly, then the 3rd stage takes forever. Many a game lasts an hour like you said. And of course my ego won't let me just end the game. I WANT those few hundred points! I was surprised yesterday that my game went so fast.
