Nothing going on...

Welcome, friend guest, to the headquarters of the Snowager Stats Project. Yami (my_december723) and I have been studying this mighty worm's movements since the 1st Day of Celebrating in Year 8. Our intrepid reporters have been blasted over 7,000 times by this beast, but we have collectively obtained over 7,000 items as our reward. Forty-two of us even got the coveted Snowager avatar! The information we gather we offer freely to you, so that you might learn from our experiences.

Please help us with this important work - we can only visit the Snowager's cave twice a day at most, and we need more information if we're going to really find out his secrets. To help with Phase 3, you need to:

  • VISIT the Snowager (6AM-7AM, 2PM-3PM, and 10PM-11PM NST). Please only send your report from your main account, as it is against Neopets' T&C to visit from side accounts -- don't risk getting your account iced!

  • FIND THE EXACT TIME you visited. After the page loads, go to VIEW and then select SOURCE. A new window will pop up. Press CTRL + F and type in NST. (You may have to click NEXT to find this by a time.) For help finding the exact time the page loaded, click here .

  • Copy and paste the time into the neomail to Yami.

  • Paste into the neomail the text of what happened (icy blast, massive icy blast, wakes up, etc.). Include the URL or the exact name of the item you received (yellow snowball, blue mynci plushie, etc.).

  • Note if you have used the VIEW SOURCE method. Otherwise, only your minute will be counted.

  • If you receive the avatar, please tell us! And use the avatar when sending your message. If you receive the avatar, please let us know if your pet(s) were at full HP, zero HP, or somewhere in-between before you visited the Snowager. It might also be useful to know if, when you received the avatar, your pets were happy or sad; hungry or bloated; and how many neopoints you had on hand at the time. Maybe one of these details is the key to the avatar!

Our findings are now posted here on Chill_Of_The_Night's petpage.

**Avatar percentage includes some attempts by reporters who have received the avatar, so the percentage is actually a bit higher than shown.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What's the difference between an icy blast and a MASSIVE icy blast?
Icy blast only harms your active pet; MASSIVE icy blast will damage all your pets. You can get either one, even if you only have one neopet.

So are there problems with this project?
Yup! There's a few:

Is there anything else I can do?
Since you asked . . . we have some awesome banners to link here.

Why are you compiling Snowager statistics?
Because somebody should!

What are the best times to visit the Snowager?
6AM-7AM, 2PM-3PM, and 10PM-11PM NST. (If you ever find the Snowager awake at any other time, please let us know!) Here's a handy status guide for you:

What kind of items can I get from the Snowager?
So far we've gotten Neggs, Scratchcards, Snowballs, Keychains, and Cool Weapons (as described by the text when you succeed in stealing something).

What's all this Phase 3 stuff?
The original plan for this project was to crack the "code" of the Snowager, and see if there was an easy pattern. After the first thousand logged attempts, it became obvious that it wasn't going to be something easy like visiting on the third minute if the day begins with a "T." There doesn't even seem to be times when things don't happen. Phase 3, instead of looking at the minutes, will attempt to focus on the seconds, to see if there is a pattern there.

If you are not on this list and are a regular contributor, that means I am not recording the seconds you visit the Snowager; however, if you tell me the minute you visited, I am still recording that. If you are viewing the source to get the exact time, please let me know so I can add you to this list.

Thanks to all our reporters, linkers, graphic designers, and pioneers! (For a full list of thank you's, please see the Phase 1 page.) Also, special thanks to denny_the_wench who helped design the Phase 3 spreadsheet; to Puddytoes for creating and hosting the ultra-helpful screenshots; and to sillyliss for being the back up collector full-time, for showing me how to run the project and for putting up with me when we started to run into problems!

CREATOR

The idea for the Snowager Stats Project was that of the wise and noble otherlleft who (along with Neopets) created all of the images on this page; please don't take any of them. All praise otherlleft -- and throw your leftover sludge his way!

Page last fully updated on Sleeping 15, Year 10.
