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

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.

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

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.

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.

>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.

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

In middle school, me and my friends played Rescreatu.

neopets refuses to acknowledge the game is no longer for kids for some reason.

yes, you just have to manually enable flash if you're on chrome. idk about other browsers. They're planning on transitioning from flash to html5 by the end of the year.

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.

No. 100873

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.

I used to play subeta, but after being spoiled by neopets customization, the ugly human avatars, as well as site issues, I stopped playing.

That's really beautiful pet art!

No, it's playable right now. I think others have mentioned it's somewhat of a grind and has gacha elements, I'd look up youtube videos about it.

Yes, Dappervolk is being maintained. It was in beta in 2018 and then was closed until last month.

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.

They released an update a few days ago: There can now be multiple pets with the same name. So any name is a go.

Fantage for me! Shut down in 2018. Scammed a lot of people for rare items from the item trading/selling shop.

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.

Honestly agreed, people who scammed others for items in online games probably grew up into absolute opportunistic sociopath assholes as an adult.

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. Hell even Dappervolk has characters who have they/them pronouns and people will get mad if you "misgender" them. Not really sure what attracts these kinds of people to petsites.

No. 105426

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.

No. 105471

I guess "normal" well-adjusted people with mainstream/normy interest aren't typically interested into petsites, so that leaves

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.

I'm still on Neopets at 22 but kind of lost interest a few months back when I became a multi-millionaire (…in neopoints of course, kek), got my pets painted, and then fell off when I realized that in order to get the wearables I want, I'd have to invest some real money and effort bc trades for the cute ones are competitive. I wanna play again but any advice/tips for getting NC wearables (not in the NC mall) are appreciated!!

Video attached is the story of how Neopets became owned by Scientologists. Turns out that the Scientologist now has pretty full control as the original creators sold all of their shares and dipped out. Since the creators have now left completely, I wonder what's been holding the crazies back from advertising their cult on there. The video is really interesting, I recommend it even to people who haven't played the game.

No. 112760

Lmao anon this is so cute. It sounds like you favor the strategy aspects of pet raising games.
I tried getting my old account back but I kept getting the info wrong and the staff that I emailed didn't believe me. It doesn't matter anyways because I had like 2000 np and nothing valuable. The benefit of having an old account is if your pets still have the old art or if you want to place higher bets in food club. Being an adult and having resources to chat freely like Reddit's r/neopets, the game is a lot easier for me to use. I don't cheat and it took me like less than a month to surpass the prestige of my shitty account from my childhood like >>100833 said.
That's an interesting point anon, I agree. So are pet sites a thing of the past? I speculate kids nowadays would rather play apps.

oh i love fr. i've been logging in and feeding my dragons regularly since 2013. maybe it's some unresolved guilt for letting my pets starve on my dead neopets account i forgot the password to

fr does this??? or do you think it was hacked

anyway, i would play neopets again if it hadn't gotten that horrid graphic update that made all the pets forced into a similar pose so they can push clothing

I never thought Bimbo.land would be discussing gun rights and abortion. It's so surreal I can't help but love it

What the fuck. Is this something that players created or put in by the creators? I understand nothing

I just think that the game is a huge oxymoron, whether it was on purpose or by accident, we might never know.

yeah, i think it's more like a purposeful irony. with other sim sites (especially pet ones) it makes sense for there to be a fantasy world for you to be a part of, but it's like, what kind of world is only populated by bimbos and himbos? so dividing it up into states with senators and elections and stuff brings a "serious" structure to a silly game. i'm the original anon who brought up bimbo.land itt and i genuinely think that part of what made it so appealing to me this past year was the humorous way it deals with politics (escape from the Very Real politics). the Prime Bimbo (like the prez) even earns a percentage of the cash profits, so it's kind of cool that the person "in charge" is actually being compensated for that. gives other users a reason to want to be in charge, too.

also, i find the general vibe of the site users to be fun. you're rewarded for liking and commenting and interacting with the other players, so everyone has this fake-nice-but-actually-real-nice bimbo charm. i feel like with all the other internet sim games i play, i'm just doing my own thing and not interacting with other users, but on bimbo.land i'm joining fashion contests and complimenting people's outfits and it's so superficial but still fun (again, bimbo charm)
