  1. Yeah, that was the first definition that popped up when googling. I figured it the other definition fit better, but thinking about it now, it does seem like refreshing the rubbish dump for 4 hours might be against medical advice. 😛 Yup. XD

    Welcome to December with Advent Calendar!

    I pretty much stopped by this thread today to show my love for the Dylan reference. 😍
  3. As far as I know, there's no way for us to give anything to the dump. (I assume the items we discard just disappear, but it would've made sense if they ended up at the dump.) Urban Dictionary (which I visit more often than I'd like these days XD) tells me it means 'Ask Me Anything'. (It's a Reddit thing.)
  4. Yup, donations go to the Money Tree; we aren't actually able to donate anything to the dump. I've been confused by my name showing up on a Rubbish Dump item as well, but apparently that's just the dump's way of letting you know you've been hanging around for a while. Not at all creepy. 🙃
  5. Have there been any reports of anyone actually getting the avatar since the last batch went out a while ago? (Two months? Longer?) I've been assuming it's broken. (Or, at least, that the rare items required to get the avatar aren't being released.) I've seen people mention getting the avatar (like on the board you made, @redespeon), but since none of them used the avatar, and those kinds of boards often attract trolls wanting to mess with people's heads, I kind of doubt their claims.
  6. Cute theme, and a nice gesture, but the cursor drove me insane within seconds (and apparently this is the improved version?), so I changed it back right away. Apparently I'm one of the few people not bothered by the complaining on the boards. I think it's perfectly natural/human (plus, with such a large, diverse (in at least age & nationality) userbase, it's hard to do things that are liked by all); we tend to be more vocal about things we don't like in all aspects of life, and as long as people still feel the need to talk about how things can be improved, it means they still care. Besides, they often have a point, and if no complaining is done, TNT will assume all is well and things won't change/improve. At this point I see more people on the boards complain about the complaining, and - don't worry, I see the irony/hypocrisy here - this does annoy me. XD

    What's your Achievement today?

    I managed to upgrade my Shenkuu Tangram trophy to gold yesterday. I didn't even need to beat my own high score to do it. (I'm pretty sure that back when I got a silver trophy - and I played this game daily - there was some kind of glitch that would occasionally award a much higher score than usual. I always wondered how people got scores of close to 3300, until it happened to me one day. I knew the score I got made no sense, as I played this game often enough to know exactly what kind of score I'd usually get (my high score is 3187) and I suddenly had like 100 points more than that. I decided not to send in that score, as I knew I didn't earn it, but man, that hurt. XD I'm thinking that glitch is fixed now though, as all the scores look normal again, and I got gold with a score 30 points below my high score. So I kinda feel that the score that got me silver and the score that got me gold should be reversed. XD)

    Claim Your GMC Prizes Now!

    Since the introduction of teams in the GMC, the winning team has gotten gold trophies, while the losing team gets silver trophies. The shape/size of the trophy is determined by how well you did though. Yeah, not sending any accidental Darigan Dodgeball scores takes some practice. (More practice than the time-frame of 'complete each challenge on the day of release' provides.) I don't think they really thought that through when adding this game to the GMC (or to the DD, for that matter).
  9. Interesting! I'm impressed you managed to always guess the winners correctly. It had never once crossed my mind to base my decision on character design. Or on characters. (I don't really pay any attention to the art at all, and while I've been on Neopets for 15 years, I know frighteningly little about the characters. 😅) I either pick a team at random (like this year) or I do what @Duma does, and base my decision on the kind of games each team gets. (I think I actually might've done that subconsciously this year, as a part of me was surprised I'd picked the 'action game' team. I usually go for puzzles. XD)

    Thanks for entering everyone, and congrats to our winners! Information on next round's theme can be found in this thread.

    Enter The Runway #70!

    If you're new to the contest, or simply want a reminder of the rules, they can be found right here. I also just want to remind everyone that taking a screenshot of your entry (or asking me to make one, or asking me to explain how to make one) is always okay; some items just look a little weird in the still image DTI provides. 🙂 Current theme: Glamorous Grarrls Description: Create a glamorous look for a Grarrl. Entering period: Monday, December 3 - Sunday, December 9 Voting period: Monday, December 10 - Sunday, December 16 Let me know if you have any questions, suggestions, or theme ideas! 
  12. Lol, I was kinda hoping my losing streak would continue (this is the first time I've been on the winning team since the introduction of teams), because I think silver is far prettier than gold. XD I used to think it might simply be as stupid as which side of the screen the team is featured on in the picture/progress bar, but from 2015 to now the winners have been on both sides twice. And it's not like the progress bar moves at all until the very last day, so we don't even have any indication as to how well the teams are actually doing while the GMC is happening. So yeah, I think wild guessing is all we've got when it comes to picking teams. @jellysundae The dead flowers look great! I think I might prefer them over the metallic looking lillies us Knights got. XD

    Welcome to December with Advent Calendar!

    I think the bonus prizes (when they're awarded correctly...) are random for each person, so not many people might've gotten books (if anyone got anything at all). So far only 2 books are known as prizes, and both are actually affordable and have been around for a while, so you can probably just get them in user shops, or wait for the prizes to start functioning again and hope you'll get them later this month.

    He's standing in front of the trees in the background somewhere. (But clicking on him probably won't get you a prize today anyway.)

    Welcome to December with Advent Calendar!

    I couldn't collect my bonus prize today, as it said I'd already collected the regular advent calendar prizes. 😕 I checked the Neoboards, and apparently clicking the video was what triggered collecting your prize today, so this is a known issue. So a head's up to anyone who hasn't done the Advent Calendar yet today: you could consider waiting a bit to see if they fix it first.
