welcome

Update: I no longer accept petpage applications. See the new rules. I'll accept petpage apps for pets with April deadlines, but after that, no more. If you've already submitted one, it's fine.

Hello! « A plushie eyrie grins out from the main desk. » I'm Candypillows, and I'll be your guide at Frowny Fosters Adoptions. (Don't worry— all fosters here actually quite cheery and smiling, as you'll soon see!) Remember all questions, comments, and applications should be directed to Vicky, and only her main, faeriedragon66; otherwise, she can't guarantee an answer.

« She straightens herself out and beams at you. » Enjoy your stay! I've even provided a complimentary haiku for all visitors.

May smiles rain down
And laughter ring perpetual
With your newfound friend.

history

Frowny Fosters underwent a rather unfortunate incident a while back. The original keeper of this orphanage was a frowny by the name of Gala. He was assisted by his owner, Shimmeryze.

Sadly, their adoption agency was shut down late 2009 when the account it was hosted on was frozen. It took several months, but we finally moved it here.

questionnaire

These are questions that I have for any prospective owner. They do not have to be filled out in order or list form, so you can answer them at your leisure as long as they are in your application somewhere.

If you want to see what else you might add to your application, but that I do not require, see the tips section.

Your future plans What do you plan to do with this pet once you adopt her? Creating a lookup, roleplaying, entering the beauty contest, etc. are all possible ideas. However, if you make a commitment to something, you should follow through with it. A list of your permanent pets. A permanent pet is one of your pets that you are not trading or fostering. It's helpful for me to be able to check up on your current pets. A list of all your accounts & the one my foster will go to Please make a note of which is your main account, and which are your side accounts. I would also like to know which account you'll be taking in my foster with if you are accepted.

Pledge of Good Ownership

Recopy this either into your application or someplace else, such as your user lookup. Take the words to heart!

If I am chosen, I, (your name) , pledge to be the best owner I can be for my new Neopet, (pet's name) . I understand all the sadness that he/she has already been through, and so I will provide everything he/she needs to be happy. I promise to be a friend to my new Neopet and never ever ever put him/her through the pain of neglect or abandonment again."

FAQs

Can I change a pet's gender?
Yes. I have the Lab Ray Scientist BD challenger on most of my accounts, so just mention this in your application and I'll change it for you if you're chosen as the owner. In the application itself, you can use either the pet's actual gender or the one you plan it to be, as long as you're consistent. I plan to change the pet's color or species after I adopt him.
This is perfectly fine. My account is under 4 months old. Can I still apply?
Sure. If you're accepted, either a) I can keep the pet on my accounts until yours is aged, or b) If you do have an aged account, I can send him there temporarily and you can shuffle him around yourself later. I can't take care of the pet I adopted anymore.
Please neomail me so we can arrange a transfer back to my accounts.

application tips

Below I have some tips to make a good impression on me and any other foster parents you might apply to.

your account

Just as important as your application is the state of your accounts. There are a few things that I look for when I go through the accounts of applicants. I would hope that these things were fulfilled before you even thought of applying, and you're not fleshing it out just to create an illusion.

Activity Are all of your side accounts active? Have they been logged into in the last few days? Are pets on the accounts happy, full, and healthy? This is very basic, and If you only log into your main account, it raises the question of whether you can handle another pet. User lookups One sign that a neopets user has "settled in" is some sort of info on her lookup. Whether she writes about herself, how much she loves her guild, and her goals on the site, or she has a fancy layout— anything is better than a bland page of information. Pet Design This includes customization, a lookup, or a petpage. I stress lookups because they show that you view your pets as more than a pretty picture; pet lookups give you an opportunity to add character and depth. Without this, it's difficult to claim that you're more than a pet collector. Other Any other things that show you're a well-rounded neopets player. A gallery, evidence of long-term and short-term goals, an avatar collection, game trophies, artwork— all of these lend strength to your presence on neopets, and, to me, are a huge plus. This doens't mean you're expected to do everything.

layout

For petpage applications, here are some layout tips.

Readability This I stress above all else— your application needs to be easy to read. This means: proper font contrast (e.g: maroon on red is BAD), reasonable line width (do not let the words run all across the page; limit it with tables or divs), font choice (cursive fonts should not make up your body text), a wise use of neon colors, and font size (It may look cute, but think twice about anything smaller than 10pt.) HTML/CSS knowledge not required I don't think any less of anyone who uses a premade layout. However, you should always credit the person/site you got it from, and if it has images, it should be appropriate. (A background of Robert Pattinson, while a fascinating choice, is probably not relevant to your application.) Pictures / Artwork I would much prefer you draw your own artwork or have someone draw a picture specific to the pet you're applying for, than you pick up an adoptable or other generic artwork. But, I won't dock any points for doing so. :)

If you'd like to be added to the affiliate wall, first add the Frowny Foster button to your own page. Then, provide me with an 88x31 button and a link to your own adoption agency and it'll be up in a jiffy.

Use the HTML code if you wish to quickly add the button to your petpage; use the Image and Petpage URLs if you want to do your own coding.
