    There was a glitch years ago (2014-2015-ish I think) where sometimes certain items would get stuck, then you'd be thrown an error when trying to remove them. Most people used the pet transfer workaround if it did happen (initiate a transfer to a side account to strip all the weapons, then just reject the transfer). I haven't heard mention of it in a really long time, so either the issue has been fixed, or it was just really, really rare. Absolute worst case, if it does happen, you can just remove it with the transfer method if it is a pet that you don't want to risk someone snatching from the pound.

    NC Mall Haunted Mansion!

    I really like the events where you can pick prizes from previous days, so you don't have to fork out the NC not knowing if you're going to like all the items. I think I'm going to wait until the last day to see all the stuff I like, then decide what to get then. Got the dress on day 1 right away though, 'cause it's magnificent lol

    Unable to use TDN site

    I just tested it in my Chrome browser (updated to the newest version) and it worked fine. If disabling all browser add-ons fixes the problem, she could try re-enabling them one at a time to see which one is causing the issue. The most common add-ons that make our pages go wonky are ad blockers (other than the standard Adblock Plus) and the extension "HTTPS Everywhere," so if she has any of those, they would be a good place to start.

    New Avatar: Flee!

    Yet another new game avatar has been released! To obtain this avatar, you need to place in the top 50 of the High Score Table for Kiss the Mortog. For some game tips to help you out, check out our Kiss the Mortog Guide. Don't forget to check me off your list!

    The main reason why we don't lend for this one is that it either requires a ton of cheap items, or a few VERY expensive items, and a lot of refreshing. Usually when people have our expensive items on lend, we discourage more page views that absolutely necessary to get the avatar, as more refreshes means more chance for the Pant Devil to steal something. Plus, the collateral amount we'd need to ask for would likely mean that it would actually be much less expensive for you to buy a set of items yourself and then sell them when you're done. Lending a bunch of cheaper items would be safer, but lending that many items completely locks up your inventory, as even if the items are listed as "trading" in your inventory, they still count towards the 50 item limit. It's the reason why we also don't lend for the Usuki avatar anymore. If people take 4-5 days to offer on the five 10-item trades, then that's 4-5 days you literally can't buy anything from any shops.

  9. Hi! Just wanted to let everyone know that many of our collaterals for item lends have been updated to better reflect market value. A couple of the more expensive items (lookin' at you Chokato and ZDAP) have new, significantly lower collaterals, and quite a few other items have had their collaterals changed slightly to reflect the new deflated/inflated values. Happy Borrowing!

    Official Neopets down/having issues board

    **NC Mall** is currently experiencing some major issues. Best not to redeem/buy any NC or try to buy any items until it's fixed, as people aren't getting credited with what they bought.
  11. Added the pea to the available items! Collateral will be 85 mil. Thanks for everyone's input!

    Apart from the general game mechanics, the biggest thing to be aware of is time. The first few days, it's crucial to be able to be on for as many updates as possible, so it's good to start your game when you know you're going to have a few days off from school/work with not a lot going on, and definitely pay attention to what all the guides say about setting your time zones so you're setting them at times that are convenient for you. I found after the first week or so, when you've build up your cash and supplies a bit and can start producing larger batches of things, it's easier to let the game run on it's own for longer so you only need to check in for a few updates a day when your batches are done producing. When setting up your batches to run, make sure to time them so they end when you're pretty sure you'll be able to be online to set up new ones.
  13. I mostly just wanted to see if the community felt like it was worth taking the risk of lending with lower collateral so more people could participate, or if everyone preferred the extra insurance that comes with the higher collateral, all other factors being equal. Yeah the account age thing is mostly to keep out the people who have to create new accounts every other week because they keep getting frozen. Surprisingly, I still get a bunch of requests from obvious shell/cheating accounts, so at least an age limit gives me reason to reject otherwise impressive (and impossibly young) accounts. Age really doesn't mean a ton because it really is easy to wander away and forget about your account for a few years. But at least an older account does show that when you're on the site, you follow rules. Other factors do definitely influence my decision to lend to someone. I take a look around their account and take into account their avvie count, site events they've participated in, and the overall effort they've put into their account, and we do keep ALP tracking sheets of people who have borrowed and any problems we've had. The poll is more to settle the collateral issue , as ultimately, all lends are still approved at my discretion based on the account. And if I didn't make it clear in the first post, the Pea is now the property of the ALP account. We don't process third party lends. I'm glad there's a unanimous consensus so far! I honestly thought this would be a lot harder
  14. Hey everyone! One of our generous members has recently donated a Super Attack Pea to the lending program, meaning we are now able to offer every avatar item for lending (with the exception of the Usukis because they have a tendency to clog up trades). As you may remember, we were having quite a bit if trouble last year with higher value items being accidentally lost by borrowers, to the point where I ended up having to replace our Bony Grarrl Club 4 times within a few months. As such, I felt I had no choice but to up the collaterals required for both the Club and the Malevolent Sentient Poogle Plushie (TCG) to the market value. This obviously meant that less people were able to borrow, but the items could be quickly and easily replaced should something happen. Because you guys are the ones we want to have access to the items, and since you all help fund the program through donations to the ALP shop,it seems only fair that the community should have a say in the collateral amounts. There are two main options being considered: Keep the collateral amounts high, meaning less people are able to borrow, but the items can be easily replaced, so once you've saved up enough you can be sure they'll still be available to borrow. Lower collateral amounts to under market value, meaning more people will be able to borrow, but if something happens to the items, we won't be able to replace them and they won't be available for lending any longer. Along with the actual NP amount required, I think imposing a strict account age restriction of 2-3 years is reasonable, meaning your account has to be at least 2-3 years old to qualify for a lend (feel free to comment what you think a reasonable account age would be if you think it should be something different) The poll will close two weeks from today (on July 19th). **Edit: it was just pointed out to me that the new limit on auctions is now 100 mil, so it WOULD be possible to collect full collat for the pea. The poll options have been updated accordingly**
