  1. I'd say the Viacom Era was more of a middle of the road deal over true Old School. Old School would be back when Adam and Donna ran the site, and I can't speak for it because I wasn't around during that time. From the Viacom Era, I would say I miss stuff like the Wheel of Slime, Keyquest, and Habitarium the most. I also miss the Abandoned Attic, I know it wasn't completely removed, but it's been glitched since 2014 to no longer stock, and since it hasn't been addressed, I'd say it's probably good and gone now. Another thing I miss is plots. I have no idea if we'll ever see more plots come into play now, the Viacom Era really gave way to some interesting ones. My favorite, to this day, is the Neovia one, and Bruno still remains one of my favorite characters; and the reason I love monstrous characters in the first place. (Ignore this if they have released plots, last I remember was the Faerie Ruin Plot, but I thought that was like the end of the Viacom Era. Not sure if that was actually a JumpStart Era plot.) Most of all though, I miss the contests and the like. Some still are active, but a lot now seem to be put on an indefinite hiatus. It's sad a lot of the content is now just barely paid attention now. JumpStart I think may still have time to be a great era, especially since they expressed the reason they purchased Neopets was to focus on the site's now older demographic. But for now, it feels like they still have a long way to go to usurper the Viacom Era.
  2. Hi guys, got a conundrum. Decided to give Ghoul Catchers a try, as someone mentioned it's a very easy 50k a day. So I played it yesterday and got the 50k, and was ready to play it again and have it added to my daily list. However, when I clicked it this time, it was perpetually stuck on a screen where it says "Welcome Back ------." The dashes I figure are supposed to be where my username would go, and yet, my username never came up. I waited for a solid ten minutes and absolutely nothing happened. I tried IE, I tried the IE extension for Chrome, and I just feel stumped. Is this game broken? Or am I doing something wrong? Before anyone asks, yes, I tried to download the game on my phone, but my phone is so old with its technology, when I try to open it, it auto closes the app. And my old iPhone, which I feel would handle it, says the app isn't available despite what the site says. So I really have no choice but the use my computer.
  3. Oh man. This wasn't so much of a game as it was like a diversion with a DVD, but I remember I had a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles DVD (The movie where they were like puppets? I'm not sure if it had another name.) One of the bonus features was a maze to navigate to get to the Turtles' main base to eat pizza, but had to avoid Shredder and his minions. Those red eyes creeped the heck out of me, and when you got caught, it made a noise that frightened me so bad. If I played that game, I HAD to have the TV muted, it freaked me out that bad. Another game scared me, not so much as a whole, but one event towards the end. Spy Fox in Dry Cereal or something like that. Towards the end, the room where all the cows were in was being flooded by milk, and I was so, so scared of dooming the world by not saving them in time that I shut the game off and never turned it back on, thinking as long as the game didn't run, the cows would be alive. Funny now, how that scared me and now I'm a fan of horror stuff in general.
  4. If you're having issues with the boat not moving even when you press the arrow keys, it could mean it's lagging too hard. Try to lower graphics to lowest, and turn off music and sound for optimization and see how that works. My major tip is to make sure there's always at least one pet in the middle. Rock the boat back and forth enough that they slide to remain there. Jump whenever there's a bomb you need to get rid of, if too many pets are starting to tip the boat without a conscious effort, or if a pet is close to the edge and you need to urge it back towards the middle. Don't bother going after dubloons unless they're an easy nab, they're 30 points but aren't worth a loss. I'm personally really good at the game, not exactly a trophy winner, but enough to have this game in my daily list for an easy 3k. So I hope I was able to prove of some sort of help.
  5. BEYOND ecstatic now. I got the Faerie Quest Cookie yesterday, and my second quest I got was a Fountain Faerie Quest, with an item that only cost me 5-6k. My Ixi, Ansolm, is now Chocolate after some heavy debate, since he was my only unpainted pet. Now I just need to customize him for his new color. Will post how he looks soon! EDIT: Here we go! I got tired of trying to figure out a new customization, so have him with his older one in his new color! It looks a wee bit janky, but he's still cute as a button!
  6. I'm giving an album a gander. A song in a Steampunk Song collection caught my interest, so I'm going to see what the whole album is like. It's called "The Dolls of New Albion - A Steampunk Opera."
  7. Ah, what a fun thing to ponder... So far, I'm enjoying the few pets I have, with applexsun, Ansolm and Atrophier. applexsun and Ansolm I'd probably like to paint at some point. I know for sure I want two more pets (Since I have premium,) that start with A and are just letters. I'd prefer if they were capitalized, or only had capitals on the first letter, but considering applexsun, I'd probably accept a name with all lowercases if the name was interesting enough. My ultimate dream would be a UC Royalboy Kyrii, but I believe that would be far too hard of a dream to achieve. I have no pets that would be good enough to trade for one, and even then I don't want to part with any of mine. applexsun was my first, and I only made Atrophier and Ansolm recently. So a more reasonable idea for my final two... I'm extremely partial to Mutant Acaras and Halloween Unis. So perhaps those two would be lovely additions as my final two pets. It would also work well if I tried to do a horror theme with my pets, with the colors being Mutant, Halloween, Darigan, Wraith, and either Ghost or Zombie. Other than the Acara and Uni though, unsure which of my pets would be what. Perhaps Ansolm would be Darigan, Darigan Ixis are amazing, but perhaps also Zombie. And I do feel like applexsun would do well as a Wraith. But that leaves Atrophier, and I don't really like Ghost, Zombie, OR Darigan Usuls. Plus it would waste the two mil I spent on the Eventide Brush. If I had to choose, maybe I'd make them a Darigan Peophin, I do really like Peophins as well. Ah man, so many ideas.
  8. I was actually in a mental ward of a hospital for about four days back in October of 2015. It... well, it wasn't like horrifying, like the horror stories of being pinned down and injected if you so much as spoke a tone they didn't like. But it still felt so dehumanizing, so constrictive to be there. First, we weren't allowed any electronics. All of ours had to be kept with a safe system, no matter if the electronics were a person's main form of coping (Such as me with my laptop.) No handhelds, no phones, not even something small like a tamagotchi. They said it was to prevent stuff from being damaged, which I can believe to an extent, but as time passed, it felt more like they were punishing you. Making you not be able to contact or enjoy your time. Second, only one long-distance call a day, and it could only be five minutes long at most. People would be allowed to call you, and if the number was within the area, you could call them whenever, but you had to use these horrible payphones that barely worked to communicate. I remember one flat out couldn't be understood because the static was so bad, and another was so quiet that even on max volume, you couldn't decipher much of anything. There were only two phones. Third, the only true entertainment was a television, and it had to be turned off by no later than 11 at night. Constant arguments over what to watch was no unusual. People yelling to shut up because the TV also was barely loud enough. Insomnia was punished, as you weren't allowed to leave your room, even if something was wrong like pain or a panic attack. There were constant checks, and if you weren't asleep, you were scolded. Pretty much the only thing you could really do was try and survive the boredom. Hygiene was always a battle, as the showers were designed to turn off after a few seconds, and you were only allowed an extremely small cupful of soap to bathe with. Like, this cup was about tip of the thumb sized, it wasn't enough to clean you if you had really long or thick hair, and yet it was expected to clean your body and wash your hands with, as well. There was no way to request another cup. The nurses either didn't care or held some malevolence behind a kind facade. I remember on my day of departure, one nurse that had been so nice to me, said that I would go places from here, that this was only a stop to help recuperate, talk about how we were nothing but mental cases. Some nurses flat out yelled at you if you didn't react as soon as possible, some nurses punished you for the smallest of mistakes. I remember my roommate was pregnant at the time, and whenever she talked about pain, she had to wait over an hour to finally get medication, if not longer. Men and women were separated, you weren't allowed to go past a certain point in the halls. Be even slightly over the invisible border, and prepare to be yelled at. It didn't matter what you identified as, such as identifying as a trans man; as long as you looked like the gender you was assigned at birth, you had to be on that side. Then again, why would you admit you were trans in a place like this, when they'd probably consider that a form of delusion? There was a quiet room, a place where people throwing fits were supposed to go. One lady always occupied it. You would hear her scream all day. Whenever it opened, the smell was so overwhelming, it was hard not to gag. Once they put her in a normal room when she was sedated. When she woke up, she opened doors and threatened people that she saw. Never a quiet moment. When it was time for me to go, they tried their best to try and make me stay. I told the doctors at the point, I wasn't sure what I would do. They took that as a sign of me saying "I wasn't ready to go." I had to stress numerous times that wasn't the case, I was more than ready to get out of dodge. It took hours for me to be discharged, much longer than anticipated. In a lot of ways, we've come far from what mental health used to be. It wasn't long ago you'd hear of buildings packed with mentally ill or disabled people, treated no better than livestock for the slaughter. But when you find yourself in a beautiful hospital, only to discover your stay is in the oldest, most decrepit part... it reminds you, we still have a long way to go. I would never go back to a mental ward, even if I truly needed it, now that I've experienced it. I went at first because of constant depression and suicidal thoughts. I left knowing that I'd rather feel like dying while having a way to escape, than be trapped in walls with no way to break free. There's no reason to be dehumanized like this.
  9. Oh! This is one Neopets avatar I actually forgot about! Thank you for notifying, mate! Now I have a cute little cybunny baby added to my collection!
  10. Hello! I'm Edwynn! I'm an old Neopets player having returned a few days ago, and made this account about that time as well. I wanted to wait and see if I got thoroughly back into Neopets before I tried to make an introduction, and so far I think I'm settled back in, haha. I used to have an account on here before, A Bloodied Rose, which was for a return quite a bit ago. But I lost the password and the email it was attached to, so I can't really go back to it. I vaguely remember that only one account per person was allowed, and I don't think I'll be going back to the Newbie I made ages ago, so if there's a way to delete that, that'd be swell. Especially since I'm settled back onto my original account that I made back when I was knocking on the teenage door. Anyway! I hope I can actually stick around a while this time, and not lose interest in a matter of moments! I'd love to be able to put my insights in various things, as well as interact with people and potentially make new friends! I'm always open to chat, so anyone is free to message me here or on Neopets for a convo! Nice to meet you all!
