  1. Take a look at Let's Encrypt. They're all about free SSL certificates because encryption should be for everyone. The catch is that you have to renew your certificate every 90 days instead of annually. There are tools that can do that for you automatically or nearly automatically depending on what your hosting service provides.
  2. Can you imagine what that player has equipped that they'd want to swap out a 30M weapon into their inventory in the first place? I want to know the other 8 things they are using!! Not that I've ever changed battledome equipment and forgotten about it being in my inventory for weeks. Nope, not me.
  3. I'm sorry getting banned for a silly reason traumatized you, but I'm not sure coming to an active fan site 13 years later to say you're hoping bad things happen to the game everyone on the site is playing happily is the best way to deal with that trauma. You could try playing the game again? It, or you, may have improved some since your childhood.
  4. It did not happen to me today. I have had it happen in the past, but it was always related to a change to (or from) daylight savings time, which seems to confuse the clocks Trudy uses.
  5. When Charity Corner comes around again, you'll have the opportunity to purge your safety deposit box, which has been a helpful event against my hoarding tendencies. My brain doesn't like the idea of throwing out stuff that could be useful or valuable which leads to having thousands and thousands of items in the sdb. I was able to donate 5,000 items over the last few charity corners without having a mental breakdown by using the price checker tool. You've discovered by now that you can't dump the html source of all your items into the tool at once. Here's some tips that helped me stay sane.
  6. I agree with alohadiscordia. They'd have to add a separate check to see if you had that specific avatar when the book gets "un-read" to remove it - and most of the time, like 99.9% of the time, that book isn't one of the hidden tower ones. It would be super thorough if they programmed the wheel that way, but the payoff would be so rare.
  7. Like all holidays in the US, Halloween season seems to come earlier and earlier every year. Stores begin selling decorations and candy in September or earlier. I expect we will see Christmas trees on sale as soon as Halloween is over ? When I was a little kid, Halloween was celebrated in school, so we would sit in class as a dragon or ghost or whatever. Some years there were "parades" where each class would walk through all the classrooms to show off their costumes. Teachers would dress up, too, and we'd have a party during the last class period. I went to public school, so this sort
  8. I'm not an expert, but I can tell you that I do not get StackPath pages at all. I wonder if you're getting a badly built advertisement or something else external to neopets. I'd check this by logging into neopets with a different browser, just to see if you get different ads or just different problems.
  9. I'm having troubles too but it may be coming back up. Couldn't get through to any page at all 10 minutes ago, but just now got to the money tree page, only it can't handle clicking on any of the items. So it's better than before, but not quite there yet.
  10. The Charity Corner 2019 perk Refreshed Quest Request doesn't work the way I expected it to. It's not all that bad, but I'm putting it out here so that others don't get surprised like I did. I spent my points on the perk and it did indeed add the refresh option to my current quest, just like the Refreshed Quest Request boon does. I didn't actually refresh that quest and was content to get 3 defense points. The next day, I got an air faerie quest, and the refresh button was there, so I used it, and got a battle faerie quest (yay!). The next day, no refresh button. Sadly, today I
  11. Does anybody know how the Spiked! perk works this year? I seem to remember last year you spent your charity corner points by pressing the button and a message came up telling you which battledome stats had increased. This year, after you hit apply, a message comes up that says Spiked perk has been successful, but no indication of which stats have been affected. I did it a second time this morning, but got out my training stats first, and it doesn't look like anything has increased at all! Has it worked for anyone else? Am I looking at this wrong or does this sound like a bug?
  12. If you go back to the fairy quest page (http://www.neopets.com/quests.phtml) it will say what quest you're on and what item you're supposed to find. Sometimes you can get quests outside of the "something has happened" random events (there's a week in February when you get one per day) and you have to go to the fairy quest page to trigger them.
  13. So, I'm firmly on the side of traveling with kids. My wife and I have traveled to Spain with a 15 month old and later a 3 month old (and a toddler). It wasn't care free and easy or anything, but we have great memories and stories to tell. That said, if you have family that you trust who are willing and able to watch your 1 year old, you have an opportunity to have a baby free trip that most parents would kill for. For 20 years, most of your trips will be family ones like going to Disneyworld or football camp or glee club regionals and such. Just hanging out with your husband (and dog) in
  14. That is a very good point. Prices should have gone up. The over-supply of items is interesting because I'm pretty sure less people are playing Neopets now than when it (and we) were young. In order to have an over supply, there has to be more players getting the items, or at least a higher percentage of players getting the items and then selling them. Am I overthinking this? Could it just be that there are less players so demand is lower? Or would that make prices go up because there's less competition?
  15. I remember the Angelpuss being given away as part of an event recently, which explains that particular price drop. I remember being shocked at the change in prices when I returned after many years away. I don't think there's a single change causing it. For example, the Coincidence (was an event, now a daily) disrupted the price of a lot of cheap garbage items, but that doesn't explain why map piece prices are lower today than ten years ago. It could be that it's easier to earn np now. The Forgotten Shore and Trudy's Surprise dailies easily push tens of thousands of np into your
