  1. Thanks for your advice, everyone. My biggest goal right now is to convince her to stay off the website if she decides to go back. We only communicate directly via facebook now, so at least the stuff we talk about can be kept private. I ended up leaving vk myself, too. It was really tough finding out the real extent of what was happening to her. People who I thought were my friends are really involved in making her life miserable, and it's left me with some minor trust issues. I don't like cutting people out of my life, but if they're spending so much time and energy mocking someone else, especially someone I'm friends with, I don't want to be involved with them anymore. Heh, I wonder if I made this thread because I want to help or because I needed help processing everything. Maybe both.
  2. The problem with reporting is it's a TON of people doing it. I've reported a lot of stuff, but it hasn't really helped. And as far as I know, it's not anyone she knows personally. It's going on in an online community we were both a part of (she recently quit, which I think was a good move). People were going at her by private message, and she did block people, but they were also making pages and even entire fandub projects dedicated to stealing her work (she sings covers) and making fun of her. People found her facebook and were posting her real pictures onto the bullying pages for a while. I don't know if that's still going on. I reported it, but the website we're on doesn't really seem to have moderators or anything. We're using vk, which is like European facebook. They have an anti-bullying policy, but I've never actually seen it enforced. She's afraid to post her covers to youtube anymore because she thinks they're going to get stolen and used against her, and I hate to say it, but she's probably right. The whole situation is just so heartbreaking. I've tried talking to the people who are running the more extreme projects, but they think it's all in good fun and I couldn't convince them otherwise. I guess I'll just have to make sure I stay on top of supporting her. I'm the kind of person who routinely goes off the radar for a while, so I'm going to have to try and change that habit. I really want to be there for her during all of this.
  3. A friend of mine is getting pretty aggressively cyberbullied and I don't know what to do. I don't know if there's anything I CAN do other than tell her I'm there for her. Does anyone have any experience with this? She lives in another country, so I can't even see her in person and give her a hug.
  4. Send this negreeting to any email address (including your own) today or tomorrow for an avatar! http://www.neopets.com/sendgreeting.phtml?sponsearch=&greeting_id=292
  5. I finally got the Wheel of Excitement avatar! Woo hoo! No more turning my pet into a chicken for me.
  6. Uh-oh, good thing that was just a dream! Brrr, nightmares can be so unsettling when they seem real or don't have a conclusion.
  7. Goooooo sportsball! I'm not the biggest football fan ever XD But the halftime show was great, and it's supposedly a pretty great game. And the Superbowl is generally just a great time for everyone involved, so I hope everyone's having an awesome Superbowl Sunday!
  8. I've got a friend who was the same way for a while. Her job was really wearing on her and she was going through some nasty medical stuff and she really just didn't have the energy to put into her friendships. She fell off the face of the earth for a while, me and our other friends were getting really worried. For me, it was worth waiting it out, and now she's at the point where she's at least a little more reachable. But my best advice is to do what you think is best for your own well being. If this friendship is causing you so much stress that it outweighs the good things you get from it, you might have to let it go (which wouldn't make you a bad friend, btw!) If the good outweighs the bad, I say be patient with her. But don't be afraid to do what you need to do to stay sane.
  9. Go go Order! I really need this avatar^^'
  10. It took me forever to get the timing down, but once you do it once or twice, you'll probably be able to do it consistently. A lot of it is just getting a feel for the timing.
  11. I had a dream that I was getting repeatedly hacked by a bunch of different people and there was nothing I could do to stop it. My pets kept disappearing and turning into different pets and it was just awful. It seemed so real I couldn't actually remember if I had been hacked or not when I woke up. I'm gonna go cuddle my pets T_T
  12. Man, that game used to be an easy 1000 np. I don't think I've gotten max np since the last adjustment. I guess they were tired of people getting an automatic 3000np each day?
  13. I know, I know, I'm doing it again with the questions XD There are just so many things I don't understand tonight! Does this bonus mean that my Taunt will be more effective if I choose to use it or that I auto taunt and the enemies will only ever attack Rohane? It's a higher damage than my current weapon, but I don't want him taunting unless I tell him to.
  14. No no, your explanation was fine! The event itself seems complicated XD
  15. Huh, that is complicated. But I think I understand now. Thanks!
