  3. 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: NFTopets Description: You've probably heard about the NFT debacle currently frustrating most Neopets users...

Entering period: Monday, October 11 - Sunday, October 17 Voting period: Monday, October 18 - Sunday, October 19 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. (Still worth checking out, as it'll be bigger than the one in the thread, so you'll be able to see more details on it.) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Voting is now officially closed!

  4. Hmmm, good question. I don't think I can be too strict when it comes to a randomly thrown together entry. Just because whoever came up with how they would make these NFTs didn't even bother to use all the available items when randomly generating pets, doesn't mean that we necessarily have to limit ourselves to the same badly thought-out ideas.
  5. Awesome round, everyone! (Sorry for the delay in closing it.) Thank you all for entering, and congrats to the winners! Click here for information on next round's theme.

  7. Okay, so I (somewhat) accidentally left this open the entire week, and I guess the tie is slightly less horrible than it was a week ago. I guess I'll just have to deal with it, because it's obvious that everybody loved all the entries this round (and rightfully so).
  8. The more I stare at these Free NFTopets, the more they're starting to grow on me. (As in "this might have given me an idea for a Runway theme", not in the "I'd like to own an NFT" sense. )
  9. 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!
  10. I just found a post which indicates it might have to do with missing certificates on your computer, or with your computer having an incorrect date. (Although it's weird that it's not happening on all browsers.) Not sure if either of those things could be the case for you - you'd think neither of those things would randomly happen, but my own laptop definitely resets the date/time occasionally (when it's not supposed to), and I've had issues with my work laptop that I traced to a missing CA certificate (even though I'm certain it was there before), so it might be worth looking into. (Also - and I'm guessing you know this already - support for Windows 7 ended on January 14, 2020, which does mean your computer is more at risk for bugs/security issues, so while I doubt it's related to your current issue, it might be worth looking into upgrading to Windows 10 - even though I totally understand preferring Windows 7.) Edit: Here's a website that has some suggestions for fixing this error on Chrome.

  12. I don't know, while I definitely think it's possible that several people would use the same account/name to respond to tickets, I guess I don't really see the point of it... If they'd want employees to be anonymous/hiding behind a fake name, why these three names? Why not switch it up every couple of years? Isn't it much more likely that the different responses are a result of them being people who have good days and bad days? XD In any case, I doubt they'd assign people a "character" based on their mood; I'm thinking most organisations wouldn't purposely make sure they have an unhelpful support employee. XD (And I can totally picture people having this job for 10+ years, btw. Maybe they have multiple jobs; not an uncommon thing, unfortunately. And the job market hasn't exactly been booming this past decade.) But maybe I only think all of this because I've never contacted the Neopets support team, and therefore have zero experiences with any of these people, nor do I have any opinions on their personalities. (I had no idea people mostly/only had negative experiences with Rico, but, then again, I'm not sure I'd actually heard of Rico before. ) The fact that they feel the need to mention both in their FAQ and their tweets that this partnership is totally legitimate is... indicative of how people still view NFTs, I suppose. XD (I mean, honestly, I can't wrap my head around them either. I'm a millennial. I have a degree in media studies. I'm a software engineer. And... my brain just kinda goes boom whenever I try to think about the mechanics of NFTs. )
  13. Hmm, while I can see what you're going for, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde never actually work/appear together. I'm really looking for duos: people/characters known for how they interact with each other. So, sorry, but no. (As you pointed out, they're a transformation of the same character, and Dr. Jekyll & Mr Hyde were actually the winning entry for the Transformation round I linked to above.) (By the way, just in case you weren't aware, you do not have to use your own pet(s) for Runway entries. You can use any kind of species/colour you want.)
  14. I loved all your Draiks! Thank you all for entering, and congratulations to our winners! Click here to get the information on next round's theme.
  15. Be sure to check out the rules if you're new to this contest (or if you simply want to refresh your knowledge of them). They can be found right here. If you want to send me a screenshot of your entry (instead of the image DTI provides), but don't know how, check out this guide. As this round requires you to make two entries, I've extended the entering period by one week. 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). *Think: Laurel and Hardy, Bert and Ernie, Lilo & Stitch, Thelma & Louise... To clarify: if you were to pick two characters from an ensemble show like Friends, you could go with Ross & Rachel (whose names are often mentioned together, because they're known for their relationship), while picking a duo like Joey & Monica wouldn't really be what this contest is about, as they're not necessarily known for their (particular) friendship. (Let me know if this doesn't make sense.) Entering period: Monday, September 13 - Sunday, September 26 Voting period: Monday, September 27 - Sunday, October 3 If you'd like to see previous rounds with 2 entries per person, check out Runway 87 (NP vs. NC) or Runway 42 (Transformation). If you have any questions about this round, or the Runway in general, just post them here, or send me a message*. *And if my inbox ever happens to be full (again), just tag me in a post here and I'll get right on that.
