Are any of you playing dappervolk? I'm thinking making an account for cross site trading with flight rising (people are making a lot of fr currency from this). The painterly style is cool, but I dislike the avatar head proportions.

Are there lots of other farmers who play Flight Rising? I've been playing since 2013 and I'd love to make friends with farmers who also play since I'm so sick of 99% of the userbase being uwu smol bean they/them fakebois who cry about their disabilities making it hard for them to play the game or whatever bullshit.

This is different from sites such as neopets but I am obsessed with Howrse even though I don’t care about horses irl lmao. I love the fact there is no random element like the games in neopets. The way you earn money is by training your horse, and winning competitions or growing crops. The aspect of breeding horses, checking their stats and seeing them win is such a rush lmao. Been close tospending money a few times but always stopped myself lol

Is it actually possible to play Neopets on pc anymore? I logged on recently out of nostalgia and none of the games would load, none of the maps, I can't tell if it was my system or the site itself.

I've spent money on Neopets in the past, right around the time customization was first a thing. I'm sure my parents loved that kek

After 12 years of playing neopets i finally made to 2 million neopoints, fuck yeah, my child self was too shit at games and capitalism to even enjoy the game, i started playing again a few months ago and found some extremely rare items in my vault, instant bank.

Im also very into neopets lore for some weird reason, the world is actually weirdly dark for a kids game, i wish they would make more serious storylines and content since most of the remaining userbase are adults that are either nostalgic or straight up furries.

a re-run of tale of woe would be awesome.

I lost my original neopets account with all painted pets and 3 mill points because i forgot the password. The pain of starting all over is immense.

Honestly it feels like an incentive for the economy to not die, alot of my OG neopets friends also came back because with trudy and more generous events it was easier for all of us to achieve our dream goals, still takes a few months lol
They don't give out neopoints enough for everything to be easy, i still had to grind and save quite a bit to get more expensive stuff like a zombie paintbrush.

I also like that Draiks and Krawks aren't a status symbol anymore, it felt a little scummy when people got them just to flex lol

UC shouldn't even be a thing tbh, it just created a toxic environment and economy, an appearance toggle would be perfect "Static/Customizable".

Reportedly Jumpstart understands that the neopets userbase is older and actually bought the site with the older users in mind, so im hopeful that my darker lore focused neopets revival dream will come true, they are working on converting all the flash into html5 and making a mobile version now so the site has been slow and uneventful but fingers crossed a new era for neopets is at dawn.

Played a ton as a kid, then grew up and forgot about it until a few years back when I stumbled upon 4chan's /npg/. Managed to sweettalk TNT into giving me access to my childhood account again, and, since I was unemployed at the time, spent months hustling to make my kid self proud.

I have a 198 month account on Neopets, it's very edgy per my 11 year old self. There's this habit I have of picking up Neo for a month or so, and then dropping it for months again at a time.
Since they made it easier to gain np, I've finally accomplished all the things my kid self never dreamed of achieving. The gallery that I've always wanted is almost finally complete and I have all my dream painted pets. I even got a woodland paintbrush just to paint a Uni and I never was even crazy about Unis.
I'm also happy with my customizations for the most part, although I keep mine simple as I think over-customized pets are uggo and tacky.
Overall I'm pretty satisfied, and I'd look forward to it if Jumpstart finally decided to make the website more adult-oriented so I wouldn't have to worry about my account being silenced for posting something 'inappropriate.'

Back in the day I used to go to the Newbie and EMS boards to shitpost and argue. I feel kinda bad because I never made any good neofriends from that website, and it appears the few that I did have are frozen or long gone. Neoboards now just make me cringe. They're a bunch of 100+ month accounts taking matters way too seriously, or their newer side accounts where they act like idiots. I can't really relate to them anymore, plus I don't feel like creating a side account just to post like a retard like I did when I was 13.
And on that note, how the fuck do some of those fags get so good at games? I have a few trophies from events and a couple of times where I got lucky in games, but how tf do people have 50+ first place trophies? I feel like everyone lies about using bot scripts lel. I know they're using them for shop restocks, I doubt Neo ever had a solid system to weed out those users.

>>100768
>Curious, as an OG what do you think about the Trudy's Surprise just giving away neopoints?
I don't mind it. In addition to helping the economy, it keeps users coming back to play Neopets because of how at the end of the cycle you get 100k. Skip a day and it's toast though, it's happened to me a few times.

>>100773

In middle school, me and my friends played Rescreatu.

Anyone other anons highly inspired by old petsite art? Pic kinda related it’s newer subeta art but still holds true to the feel of the older pieces imo. I just love that classic cel shading.

There's illegit cheats you can use to get trophies. I've used them to get game avatars on my semi-legit account before. I don't doubt a lot of the accounts that have massive ammounts of trophies, do exactly that. It's remarkably easy to get away with if you're not being dumb or over-confident with it.

I don't really play neopets anymore, but I go on there a few times a year just to enjoy this relic of the past. It's just so different from any other petsites that I played as a child. I feel like you can really tell the staff had a lot of fun building the website and adding stuff in it's early years, like the website's so massive (not the userbase but the website itself) and wacky. I think they didn't take themselves too seriously back then and I love that.

>mfw my friend was a popular artist and made a mint winning art contests (you won brushes as prizes and could sell them for 300k-1mil) and selling art for NP while I was stuck grinding dailies, playing games and scratching lottery tickets
I never learned the trade hustle, I tried it for a moment but I was too dumb to understand how to be efficient enough. I made most of my money playing the games but they were real fucking stingy with the NP output, if you spent all day playing those things you could earn maybe 10k at most.

Too bad I lost the password (or got hacked, I don't know) for my almost 20-year old account, I had all sorts of extremely rare shit in my inventory and at least 1mil in the bank. I stopped playing shortly after pet customization became a thing because I hated the thought of putting real money into it and losing all the color-specific poses and art. I don't think I even have the access to my old e-mail so my original neopets account is forever there as a relic of my pre-teen years.

I played it a couple years ago as well, small community and lack of activities didn't appeal to me but it was pretty cute! Wasn't too hard to make money, I think consistent dailies was key. The human avatars were fun, but I wish they were full bodies instead of busts.

Yeah I'm playing DV, and I also trade for FR, but the exchange ratio is getting worse and worse. It's grindy and GenderSpecials: the game. I do like the art sytle and not sure why people say it's ugly. But it doesn't seem like a game with a ton of long term potential.

I've been playing Subeta for over 12 years. Went there from Neopets. It got to the point where I only logged in once in a while to keep my good pet names.
They released an update a few days ago: There can now be multiple pets with the same name. So any name is a go.
I'm fine with it because now I can make memorial pets for my cats. But other old time members are pissed.

Fantage for me! Shut down in 2018. Scammed a lot of people for rare items from the item trading/selling shop.
Also exploited the pets. One of them dropped a very popular item when you would breed it, so I would do that and sell it in the shop for a good amount. Made big banks

Yes! I know for a fact I never would have gotten serious about art without my tween pet site obsession. I was super inspired by official site art and by the art users would make of their pets and put on their profiles/pet pages. (The angsty backstories people would write for their pets got me into writing, too.)

I'd love to make a small pet site with a heavy focus on encouraging creativity in users someday, but that would be a long way off.

Does anyone else think that pet sites are really tumblr sjw-y? Especially with regards to being full of fakebois/mtfs (but few to none mtfs) and enbies.

No. 105426

>>105131
absolutely. look at FR's userbase, it's a perfect example. I think it's bc customization-based pet sites attract and are spread especially by word of mouth in the tumblr crowd, and wokeness targets women and kids who would be interested in pet site games. The art and OC aspect also would draw in the artsy, geeky, or roleplaying crowd as well.

A while back there was some uproar about the site flight rising using wendigo in an item's name, they ultimately changed it to something else. SJW discussion on Native American beliefs here and in general makes it seem like respecting native culture means believing in it.
