    Is YIPP gonna make me rich?

    I just started playing stocks about 6 months ago when I went for the avatar and I've never seen one on my portfolio go over 100 before. I made a tidy 400k profit when I chickened out and sold most of my YIPP shares when it hit 80-something, I only had a couple thousand in YIPP anyway so it doesn't matter much. I agree though, it's funny how they get past a certain point and you stop worrying about it! It's just like, go on, do your thing, I want to see where you're going with this lol. Makes me wonder if the Neo market actually functions with any semblance of actual market variables or if it's a computer program running the whole thing and occasionally it's scripted to let one really get up there to keep people interested...

    That's Not Rubbish Avatar Bug?

    I've been suffering through daily stretches of hanging out at the dump myself, trying to refresh something that will grant me the avatar. When I first started trying for this one, I found the JellyNeo avatar page that advises that only certain items are avatar-eligible. The faeries, petpets, and paintbrushes at least make sense to me, but the apple core? Really? Doesn't seem like that one belongs in the "It's not Rubbish" category! Unfortunately, I can't confirm a specific item that worked for me yet, but the wait goes on. Good luck with your avatar quest and if you do get it, I look forward to hearing what worked for you, I'm sure we are not the only two still frustrated by this one!

    I'm not into customization myself but that's a lovely dress! The overall effect is well balanced and very pleasing to the eye. Nicely done.

    Stock Update?

    I feel like a read somewhere that the Stock Market is supposed to update hourly, but that's not a guarantee that anything actually changes, just that is could. I just started playing stock market this last year and I'm sort of lazy about it... I usually check it when I'm doing my dailies and buy if there is something at 10 (I have the CC perk) but if there is nothing available at that time I rarely remember to come back later and check again. I agree though, it seems like sometimes a pack of them sit at 9 and 11 just to annoy me

    It's a secret to everybody!

    Did anyone else get a good laugh when they looked at the "Best Plot" nominees in the Neopies a couple of days ago and the Lyra "plot" was listed?? My first thought was "Um, doesn't something actually have to, ya know, HAPPEN in order for something to count as a plot?" Although, I noticed the other day that Fyora STILL has not been returned to the Hidden Tower after the WR plot, so maybe I shouldn't be surprised at how slowly the Lyra story is crawling along
  6. I'm kind of in the same boat as you, @jellysundae I tend to kind of forget that I have the bank and stock perks, and so I'm sure when they do run out I'll be sad. On the other hand, it's nice to have had them for the whole year, I was amazed initially that they were set up to last that long. It all depends on how high your bank balance is and how actively you participate in the stocks, but added up over the whole year that's got to be a huge gain for people who consistently used those features. As for this year's CC I'm on the fence. I did like the old style of rewards where you got items in return, although I recall being irritated at the time because I had very few r90+ items the first year I partook in CC and the r90's I got in return for those donations were all fairly common, low-value ones. I watched people brag about getting priceless stamps and weapons and just fumed I liked last year's format in the sense that nearly anything was fair game to donate. I know it gets extremely tedious donating 1-point items over and over and over, but I found the resulting near-total purge of my SDB oddly satisfying. After last year's CC I've basically been hoarding everything, because at this point it's not safe to make any assumptions about this event. Funny thing is, because there's no guaranteed formula for CC, TNT is inadvertently prompting people to hoard LOTS of items, which is basically the exact opposite of the "purpose" of clearing out the servers with the event. Wonder if it's worth it to them to have everything cleaned up and tidy for a week or two when CC ends, and then people start filling that space right up again saving things for another whole year. I also have a bunch of unused points from last year still sitting in the perks shop, but I'm just under the total for anything else I would want, so they will go to waste. I'm with @acmerasta, I wish we could pool point with others and donate them somehow so that at least they would get used. Seems to me that I recall a mention in the news or the NT about more options being planned so people could spend unused points, but obviously that never happened.

    Go home Bart, you're drunk...

    So the cooking pot can see the phantom items? The plot thickens! I wonder if any other places that show you everything in your inventory, like the toy repair shop, can see them? Good thing I'm not superstitious or anything, given all the lore about island spirits and volcanoes and such, I feel like I could easily spin a conspiracy theory about how these little phantoms came from Mystery Island to haunt the rest of neopia with their invisible tricks but they can be revealed by returning to their homeland to sacrifice items to the cooking pot

    Go home Bart, you're drunk...

    I wrestled with that too, I don't normally spin the Misfortune wheel because you can't win anything that makes it worthwhile. It was just the easiest way to get rid of my inventory ghosts, because the Pant Devil comes up quite frequently. I felt the same way... it wasn't really hurting anything to have them in there, but once I realized they were haunting me, I was determined to get rid of them! By completely emptying my inventory of all visible, worldly items I was able to ensure that whenever I got him, he would steal one of the ghosts. I did learn to make sure my battledome pet wasn't set as my active when I did it though, because the wheel will occasionally make your pet sick I felt bad because I'm too cheap to buy most of the cures when the Springs will do it for free, but sometimes it takes several visits to the Springs to get a full heal and I couldn't battle one day because I'd accidentally given my battle pet some stupid disease with the wheel

    Go home Bart, you're drunk...

    Do not be alarmed, neither you nor Bart has had one too many this morning! Well wait, maybe be alarmed, because technically your inventory is haunted. Hold on, let me explain... Back when the Binary_Supagoo bobbleheads were awarded during the AC, there was a glitch that caused a lot of people to get the one they were supposed to win, but also up to 5 "phantom" copies of the item. They were not visible in your inventory, but they took up space. Not long after the AC I was trying to buy something from a shop and got the "inventory full, no more than 50 items" message, yet when I checked I only had 45 things in my inventory. Finally figured out from a different thread on here somewhere about the phantom bobbleheads. I was able to get rid of all mine by going to the Wheel of Misfortune with nothing in my inventory (except the phantoms, obviously) and with enough spins I was able to get the Pant Devil and each time the message on the wheel said "Oh no, the Pant Devil has stolen your Binary_Supagoo Bobblehead". I just repeated this process every day until I had gotten him 5 times, and now my inventory holds 50 items again. So anyway, I'm guessing that's what happened to you too. So technically congratulations are in order, because you now have one less ghost haunting your inventory! Or maybe congrats to JS for being so good at breaking things that are still haunting us months later 馃様

    Avatars: What have you got?

    Wahoo! After a solid YEAR of playing the coconut shy, I finally took out my first coconut and got the avatar to boot! I almost missed it because the avatar notification doesn't show up when you use the sneaky back page link, and thats the only way I can stand to play it 馃槃 Preview New Av: Now if I could just get that lucky with the kiko pop one lol

    what should i do with this cutie ?

    Threads like this totally make my day after a long crummy day at work 馃槃 I too cannot wait to see where this ends! The food Chias are so cute. There is also a Garlic Jub, which seems fitting somehow for pizza: Some of the Dimensional paint jobs appeal to me too, I think because they remind me of the cheesy neon lighted signs that were so common in American pizza joints when I was growing up. Back when people actually went out for pizza, instead of just ordering it in. Now all the pizza places around here are storefronts that do carryout/delivery, they don't have dine-in options any more.

    what should i do with this cutie ?

    Love that name! What about a winged species? With drone package delivery being promised as the next big "thing" I can only imagine the hilarious disasters that will ensue when some pizza chain tries to go that route, but a flying neopet delivering pizza to your door would be fabulous! And bonus... no extended wait times while your pizza is stuck in traffic!

    I'm down to only Awakened left for the avatars so I'll have to go that route and hope for the best. Will be so glad to cross the last of those off my list and then I can actually enter based on which boons I want to try to win 馃榿
