Yet another returning user

Recommended Posts

Hey y'all!

I'm Russ. I used to be super active on neopets around... 10ish years ago. I more or less quit during college, and have barely thought about the site in the last 5 years or so. Lock down left me with a ton of free time and so I'm indulging in nostalgia :)

I used to be a pretty hardcore member of The Neopian Orphanage if any of y'all remember that guild. Back now achieving goals I wasn't ever able to reach as a teen. Looking to get active in a community again, because I kind of miss it.

 

Current goals are avatar and trophy hunting, and writing the story I started drafting all those years ago but never finished. Also filling the additional 10 pet slots they've given us?! Like wow.

 

Feel free to ask questions or chat or whatever :D

Hi Russ and welcome to our forum! It's funny how we can achieve things now that we couldn't even dream of as a kid right?

Hi Russ!

What's happened to you is exactly what I've been hoping for with lock-down; for many former Neopians to rediscover it. :D A perfect escape from everything going on right now, nostaligia's good for the soul. ^.^

The additional slots must be like a dream come true for a lot of returning players.

Thanks y'all!

It's definitely wild. I can't tell if i'm just better at things, or if things are just slightly less competitive now. I've already gotten a couple new trophies and the changes in price on some items is wild (I'm sitting on a fortune of retired items, apparently!)

 

If anyone has recommendations on how to get actually involved in this community I'd welcome them. 🙂 trying to break into an established group is kinda nerve-wracking, heh.

Don't worry about that too much. There's a lot of new people anyway! Just participate in the topics if and when you feel like it. It really doesn't matter if it's your first post or post 1000.

 

*Puts moderator hat on* The only thing that matters is following the forum rules (saves me some work) :P

Yeah just jump right on in here, I'd like to hope we're not as unnerving as the neoboards, but you're right that anywhere is when you're new.

Duma will be following you around with a red pen if you double-post or use less than 7 words. Don't make them hulk-out on you! 😱

visualising some terrifying moderator monster here. 🤭 Sorry Duma. 🤣

I'm thinking it's gonna be a combo of things with the difference you've noticed; you'll definitely be better at things, there's definitely less people compared to the zillions active 10 years ago, the tech you're using will be way faster (not always a good thing with some of the games).

The big question here is - will you be participating in the Altador Cup? :snitch: All the people who say they really hate it are getting good and vocal on Board 7 right now. xD

Haha I'll definitely be doing the AC :D Excited to have an event to do - I came back right after the festival of neggs ended.

 

Thanks for being so nice, guys. I really appreciate it!!

 

(And I promise to be good! I used to be a mod on a few forums ages ago - thanks for doing the work to keep things running!)

Welcome welcome, it's so nice to see so many returning players. I can't wait for the AC to start it should be fun, everyone rooting for their favorite teams.
