Quote of the Week

Don't Freak Out

Ditching Insidious Gifs: Overcoming Avatar Addiction
You have to be good at EVERYTHING on the site to even begin collecting. Games, restocking, having a lot of money (4 stamp avatars??? No way!), painted pets, expensive items, good battledome pets, and the worst part of most avatars, luck.
