    #NoNeoNFTs

    Staff members at The Daily Neopets stand in solidarity with the Neopets community against the implementation of NFTs and the Neopets Metaverse NFT project. A community boycott has begun this weekend, lead by JellyNeo, which we are in full support of. Speak with your wallets. Spread the word on social media. Let your voice be heard. Quick information about NFTs/Neopets Metaverse and why the community is against it: NFTs are essentially a crypto-currency scam that gives you a "unique" Neopets picture that you "own". It is currently believed the Neopets Metaverse are allegedly taking images from Dress to Impress and selling them as their NFTs. There are plans to make the game pay-to-win, all having to do with the purchase of NTFs. This threatens the heart of the game at its core. We urge all players to read through JellyNeo's article for an in-depth and clear understanding of how NFTs work and how it affects the Neopets we know and love. #NoNeoNFTs

  2. She can believe that cutting her hair is wrong, but she doesn't get to tell you that you shouldn't cut your hair. Same with the other things, although they are bad habits they are not "wrong" for you to do because her religion says so. Her religious beliefs are hers, and unless you share them you are under no obligation to live by them. She will hopefully figure that out at some point. I'm an atheist, but i do have an example of something that while not a religion gave me a similar mindset to your friend. When I was in high school, I stopped eating meat. For a number of reasons, including being bullied for a love for animals. The next year or so, I drove my meat eating family and friends nuts by becoming "preachy" about vegetarianism. Telling them what they were eating was wrong and so on. Eventually, I learned that I had to respect their choices and not try to change them to my point of view if I wanted to keep my relationships. I haven't eaten meat since, they all still eat meat, and that's okay. Hopefully you and your friend can reach a compromise in which you stay friends and respect each other's religion/lack of religion.

  4. i mean it's not so much a timeline as a collection of links to other people's timelines and evidence, but i appreciate the shoutout i'm doing the boycott too. ideally the nfts will be scrapped outright, but at the moment i'm more concerned about this "neopets metaverse" which is going to fork the site onto the blockchain. forking properties into parallel projects like this can sometimes work (it's worked out okay for runescape) but it's far more likely that this "neopets metaverse" is intended to replace our site. and even if they are intended to run parallel, there's still the issue of the behaviour from the nft community. i know people can gripe about neopet's family-friendly image, given how the majority of the site's users are adults, and i've certainly grumbled about it plenty of times myself, but there are still kids on the site, and exposing them to the kinds of things in the nft community (such as the retweeting of NSFW project by the NeopetsMeta twitter) is just not okay! and no one, child or adult, deserves to be exposed to slurs or misgendering.

  5. So I was looking at the votes, because I wanted to start closing the round, and... a four-way tie for second place??? Seriously??? I always dread closing rounds with ties anyway (the editing software of this message board is not kind to aligning text and images), but a four-way tie in a round with two entries per person?!? Even if I "break" the tie, I'd end up either with a 3-way tie for 3rd place, or two 2-way ties. (Or even more, if I'd vote for #1 as well.) I... I'm going to wait a bit to see if we get any more votes (and also try to think of a good way to close this round), so there's a good chance I won't close it today. My apologies!

  13. Neopets NFT Situation Link Collection For anyone who’s confused over what’s going on, a few weeks ago, we found out that Neopets are making NFTs. NFTs (or Non-Fungible Tokens) are digital receipts bought and traded with cryptocurrency such as bitcoin, or in this case, Etherium. The response to this has been overwhelmingly negative, and there have been multiple scandals that have happened since. There are a number of petpages and articles explaining everything that’s happened, and I figured a central thread to collect all the links would be helpful. I will update this list as I find more links, or feel free to suggest additions. New links in red! Last updated 2021/10/13! Non-Link News: Boycott: JellyNeo is currently running a protest blackout on their site, and several people on the neoboards have organized a weekend-long boycott of neopets.com with them, from 9 AM on 2021/10/08 to 11:59PM on 2021/10/10.

  21. It's time to vote for your favourite entries again! Important note: Voting for yourself is NOT allowed. Doing so will result in disqualification. Please double check your votes before submitting them, to avoid mistakes, because they can't be changed afterwards. Current theme: Dynamic Duos Description: You'll have to create 2 entries this time: one for each half of a famous duo. They can be partners, friends, a couple.. They can be fictional, or real people. I'm not picky. Just two people (or puppets, or creatures, or... whatever) that work well together - and are specifically known to work as a duo/couple.* Preferably somewhat well-known (or at least easy to Google). Entering period: Monday, September 13 - Sunday, September 26 Voting period: Monday, September 27 - Sunday, October 3 Be sure to check out the links to the animated entries, although with Flash gone (and pre-HTML5 conversion) you'll only be able to see the still image.

  23. I'd be sad too little ixi. This was never the idea of Neopets. It's supposed to be a safe place to play games. Not a "Gimme all your money and we still won't keep your kids safe, HA!"

    #NoNeoNFTs

    You are not paying to play. The entire website is free and accessible to you without having to pay a cent in order to access the content. You chose to pay for Premium because it offers nice QoL to maintain your shop but you can still do all the same things without Premium. The Neopets Metaverse is changing that by having gameplay be locked behind a pay wall, meaning you won't be able to access it at all without purchasing NFTs, which are hundreds of dollars each. This can be anything from new Neopets worlds, new plots, new pets, new items, new events - won't be accessible to you in any way unless you purchase NFTs. Imagine you couldn't play the Altador Cup or participate in the Advent Calendar without having to buy an NFT...

  30. Just looking through these again and I'm so mad at myself for not managing my own entry. My voting this time hasn't been overly helpful as I voted for everyone they're all so good. I wonder who I could have come up with for a different duo though... because Howl and Sophie was the only other possible my brain provided me with, I was kicking myself, repeatedly, when I saw the entries. x'D Me too! Some time later... Huh, and now, NOW, I find inspiration! So here you go, here's my entry... Storm and Wolverine Pretty tough finding a pet for him, because both the hair and the claws display so differently on different species, also tough finding a background that worked with the overall vibe, and the claw didn't just blend into. SO tempted by the Kacheek, simply because it looks so ridiculous. the claw just wasn't cutting it though *groan* sorry... I'll get my coat...

  33. Here is a link to an article by "The Verge". Basically, it is "NFTs 101". Near the very end of the article is the question, "Will trading my Logan Paul NFTs contribute to global warming and melt Greenland?" The answer is why "people are being upset with Neopets". ref: https://www.theverge.com/22310188/nft-explainer-what-is-blockchain-crypto-art-faq However, to quickly summarize, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are, basically, digital "art" or "property". Blockchain is used to track ownership (digital ledger, so to speak). Blockchain is also what cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Dogecoin, Ethereum, etc) are based on. Mining cryptocurrencies, and/or making NFTs uses a lot of electricity. Fossil fuels are still used to create electricity, and use (of) can lead to global warming/climate change. People are upset at Neopets for wanting to create NFTs, which consumes electricity, which can lead to global warming/climate change. At least, is what I believe the "whole NFT thing" is, on Neopets. @jellysundaeYou know, the names could be used as adjectives, in a way. Only we on TDN/Neopets may understand, but I could say I was having a "Rico S" kind of day, and hoping tomorrow will be more like an "Alice W" one...

  39. I feel it's a really graphic representation of a seriously bad cold, ironically. xD They need some balsam on that poor trunk. Though with the tail being on fire too, it could just be the after effects of a really hot curry the night before. If curry's hot enough does it make your ears burn? The ray is fired at domaniala... ... and she loses two levels Your eyes recover quite quickly after the giant explosion, but that's more than you can say for your Petpet.

  43. Next conspiracy theory: Tony P, Rico S, and Alice W actually predate Neopets! You know, like when you discover your town was built on the ruins of a previous civilisation or something... they were there already... someone needs to carbon-date them. Now I'm imagining Rico as a grouchy old git, full on cane-wavin' get off my lawn, and Alice is a stereotypical sweet-natured granny. Not sure where Tony fits into this scenario. xD This does have so much appeal. Initially I'm sat here thinking getting Rico would be like some punishment detail; then I thought wait a minute! Maybe people fight over getting to answer as Rico! Along the same lines as my initial thought of people responding as Rico when they're having a bad day. @iheartsakuI meanwhile have been here the whole time, and I'm just as confused.

  44. Ah, Board 7, always good for: So, weren't Tony P, Rico S, and Alice W there when Neopets was owned by Viacom, and, before that, Adam & Donna? If so, seems they weren't part of the "Jump Start" lay-offs. But, yeah, it's like when contacting a telephone operator, they identify themselves as "Operator 20", or "Operator 13". In this case, it's "Tony P", or "Alice W". And, it reminds me of Internet ads, or, rather testimonials - "Best website, ever! - Tony P". They always mention first name, and last initial. I wonder if it is scripted. "Ok, John Doe. Welcome to your first day at Neopets Support. Today, you'll be playing the part of Rico S. A very strict customer support technician, who always says no first, and doesn't ask questions, later. Copy & paste these responses from here. Got it? Tomorrow, you'll get to be Alice W, who is a lot nicer."
