    Musical_Shoyru got a reaction from Carol in Is it Cheating to play slushie slinger and Shootout showdown at the same time?   
    I think it's silly that it's against the rules.. if I'm not cheating so what if I can split my brain?? I had played Slushie Slingers and MSN and SOS (alternating between the two) cause I just didn't have time to play them all (which it's ridiculous to get what you need to reach All Star as is), but had to stop as I didn't know it was "against the rules", I just find it dumb xD 

    TNT always has those little quirks though, rules that ruin things for everyone sometimes haha Oh well.

    Musical_Shoyru got a reaction from Yuiina in Let's talk about Halloween!   
    I think a lot of the more innocent dressing up came from people that don't like the dark intonations of said holidays. Myself being a Christian, Halloween themes can tend to be dark, Though I'm not going to lie, I love myself a good scary movie or haunted house, but I've never been a big blood and gore person.  

    As someone said before it's origin is actually of Celtic descent and not of American/US, but it actually started as a way to ward off ghosts. They'd light bonfires and wear costumes to get rid of them. The part about honoring the dead I think has a more Spanish/Mexican descent.

    But like I said, as far as it goes for me and I know for a lot of Christians or people of faith (IF they even celebrate it) the nicer costumes is way for us to participate without having to go against our beliefs and have to partake in the blood and gore. My mother was never big on the haunted aspect, we weren't allowed to go into Haunted houses or watch scary movies growing up (oh lawdy, hope she doesn't see that I kind sorta have done that and like some of them! lol), plus dressing up is just so much fun! Me being a cosplayer myself (Someone who dresses up as their favorite characters or makes costumes and goes to events throughout the year) Halloween just gives me another reason to dress up as something super neat and show off my costume making abilities

    @Yuiina Not all of us can afford a ticket to another country and "enjoy the ride" and to downvote people's creativity just cause it's not spooky seems mean. Just because something isn't spooky doesn't mean it's not Halloweenie, as said before Halloween costumes didn't necessarily have a spooky origin. I doubt the Celts were running around like a murderous Clown trying to eat children (just saying).

    Me being someone that likes to cosplay, as I said above, Halloween is a wide event in which it's almost free to participate in, having to buy a ticket to every convention and event that's not Halloween just because I don't want to wear a spooky costume is too expensive and I can't say a lot of people wouldn't be able to afford that. I don't think it's entirely fair to also say kids should be excluded from an event in which they can get some goodies just because they don't want to dress in the bloody and gorey, or spooky aspect of Halloween. I guess it also depends on the way your were raised but seeing kids running around as witches and serial killers or killers from movies just makes me sad. I would much rather see them dress as their favorite character, heck even a Disney Villain  would be much less demonic then Freddie or Jason (which I will never understand why you want you kid dressed like that! (not you but the world haha))

    Musical_Shoyru got a reaction from Nielo in Google Chrome Getting Rid of Flash?   
    I guess I'm not so much worried about Neopets shutting down as I believe it's just something that has that charm that people keep coming back to.

    I'll have to check into it again @Nielo I remember when I was editing the pages it was messing up on me before when I would click on anchored links within the page and it not showing up properly.

    I guess I'm just a old fashioned person, sad to see flash go xD LOL 
    From my personal experience Firefox has always crashed on me, loaded slower, plus I've used Chrome for years, all my addons and saved pages and everything are in here. I've just not had a lot of good experience with Firefox. It IS updated and at it's latest version, but to me has still run slower than Chrome ever has. (IE we all know is the paste eater of the family so I won't go there! xD lol)

    Well... I faithfully checked every day for weeks on end and NOTHING happened. Then, life gets busy and I don't check in for a few days and discover the plot has ended and I have missed the chance to do the last part. I'm very annoyed. I guess I'll be buying the stamp... which is foolish bc I'd gladly have gotten it myself had I known. Grrr.

    Musical_Shoyru reacted to Duma in Lyra and the Lost Heirloom: Lyra's Escape   
    There are 14 chapters and even though I have the achievement it still feels unfair because you had to find out yourself. News was often a day late (depending on your timezone, people sleep you know) or not there at all and like said above, there were days or even weeks in between with nothing.
    Tip for the future, the moment an event start add it to your dailies list to at least open the page, if there is an update you'll see it right away, if not takes just one second to see and close it. That's what I do and how I managed to read 12 chapters day of release.

    I've realised that they HAVE to have a certain amount of new brushes every year, or there'll be no new looks on pet days because there'd be no colours left.
    I do think us voting like this is, in all likelihood, almost completely redundant, but it's savvy of TNT to do this because it engages the community and lets people feel they are able to influence what happens, rather than just putting new paintbrushes out there and the first thing we know about them is a blurb in the news.
    I'm just skimming right past that pic out of The Mummy... *shudders* ? You're SO right there!

    Musical_Shoyru reacted to Trea in Vote For Your Favourite Pose Now!   
    I voted for number 2 because I feel that pose is more in keeping with the way pets are portrayed in the plots and other pictures on the site. Plus, to me, dresses on the Aishas, Wockies and Kougras just don't look right.  I would prefer more "action" poses for all my pets.

    Before he mentioned that part he did seem to be shocked at the fact of who her Father is. He must know something about how awful he is and is willing to help her get away.

    That being said I laughed the entire time she climbed that tree to get away from an..... Eyrie..... they fly.....

    Musical_Shoyru got a reaction from acmerasta in I can't believe the Neopets community is so...   
    I think the problem is a lot of communites, are well, rude. I've been on so many MMO's, video games that are played online, and such that the community is VERY toxic, it's always a nice thing to find one that for the most part has never given me any negativity. I believe that's one of the biggest thing that keeps Neopets alive and going so strong because of the people that make this a place that others actually want to login to each day.

    Musical_Shoyru got a reaction from Scoobert_Doo in Premium Issue   
    Hey all! I was curious if anyone has encountered this before or had this issue. I have the monthly subscription of Premium on Neopets, and for whatever reason it never actually renews itself. I have to manually go and re-purchase it every month even thought it says it's re-occurring, although that's not my main issue.
     
    I want to say about Sunday I purchased it again and it went through in my bank account, but it hasn't shown up on my account. Typically it shows up with a few minutes of me purchasing it and I've never had ANY issues with it. However this time, as of right now, I STILL don't have it. Which is annoying. I needed my SSW to purchase some items for my guild, I'm missing out on fighting Jetsam Ace in the Battledome which gave me Nerk's almost everyday which is one of my main sources of income on the site (besides Food Club when I don't crash and burn) and I'm just a bit livid that I'm paying for something that only lasts a month until it re-news again/ I have to pay for it again. That's 5 days I pretty much paid for that I haven't been able to use it.

    I've messaged support twice and only have gotten the stupid automated message that states they received my inquiry, but haven't gotten a response. This is REALLY annoying ?
