About Me

I have been playing Neopets avidly for 7 years! In real life, I'm a fun-loving adult from the United States who just loves virtual pets!

I'm friendly, sunny-natured and a bit of a clown. My favorite thing to do on Neopets is write hilarious articles for the Neopian Times. I love to make people laugh when they read my submissions!

My favorite things to do on Neopets are: winning trophies, writing Neopets Poetry, getting articles and stories entered into the Neopian Times, earning my modest 20k a day, and talking to my favorite Neofriends.

My favorite things to do in real life are: playing Final Fantasy games on my Playstation, shopping for vintage clothes, watching adventure movies, and collecting masquerade masks.

My Good Deeds

Zap And Pound
One of my pet projects here on Neopets is to give away zapped pets. Yes, I "zap and pound," although technically I advertise the pets on the Pound Neoboard and send the pet to its new owner through safe transfer. Furthermore, I don't require lengthy or complicated applications. I don't require applications at all. Not everyone is an HTML master -- many of the users on the site aren't even in their teens yet -- so I simply start a thread on the Pound Neoboard and ask people to tell me in 3 or 4 sentences why they deserve my zapped pet. To see the list of pets I've given away, click here!

Acquiring My NFs' Dream Pets
Another one of my projects here on Neopets is trading for my Neofriends' dream pets. I create and zap Kacheeks in order to achieve rare colors like Island and Chocolate and trade them for my Neofriends' dreamies. My list of pets UFT is here. I've fulfilled 7 of my Neofriends' dreamies. Only 40 to go! xD

FFQ Giveaway
On September 6, 2012, I was lucky enough to receive a FFQ! I adopted a WN Buzz named Nurtina from the Pound and used the FFQ to turn Nurtina into a Plushie Buzz. Then I gave Nurtina away to a deserving new owner! Everyone won -- I got the Buzzin' avatar, the new owner got a great new pet!

Lending Avatar Pets
I lend avatar pets to close friends, friends of friends, and trustworthy people I meet on the Avatar Neoboard. I pay close attention to avatar count -- I only lend to people who have 250+ avatars, and I only lend through safe transfer. Here's a list of the pets I lend:

Alyons on Thereafter
Chiackaroo on Greenteacustard

Lending Battledome Pet
I lend a battle pet named "xxxx" to close friends who need him during plots, events, and any other occasions where Battledome fighting is involved. I had to trade a very well named Pirate Draik to get him, so I'm quite proud to lend him out to my best friends!

Clothing Giveaway
Yes, you read correctly! In order to receive free paint brush clothes from me, your pet must be the same species and paint color as the clothes I'm giving away. For instance, to get Robot Lupe clothes from me, you have to own an unclothed Robot Lupe. After you transfer it to me, I will dress up the Lupe in my Robot clothes, send the Robot Lupe back to you, and voila! Now you have a fully dressed pet! Why am I doing this? Well, I've been zapping pets for 7 years and I've collected quite a lot of paint brush clothes over the years. I don't really want them filling up my closet, so since I don't use them, I figured hey, why not donate them to people who need them? My list of free clothes is here.

My Editorial Questions (15)

Are the Poetry Contest judge, the Storytelling Contest judge, and the Neopian Times judge all the same person? ~indulgences
Nope! Although the jobs have been shuffled around over the years, presently, not one of those is currently judged by the same person.
This is question 9626, archived from Editorial Issue 667.

I know of a player who regularly posts on the Trading Neoboard and over-offers on peoples' threads (such as offering 600k on a 300k item), and then when the happy sellers say okay to the trade, this player rejects the trade. He does this twenty times a day to different sellers. Is this reportable? I don't know if he's looking for attention or what, but it seems rather rude. ~indulgences
This player is repeatedly and maliciously being an annoyance to other players. Feel free to report him for harassment so our monitors may look into it.
This is question 9611, archived from Editorial Issue 662.

Can there be an avatar for having one million np in one's Shop Till? Thanks! ~indulgences
While a neat idea in concept, we think that would encourage people to beg others to buy from their shops -- or worse, to say that they'll send the NP back and then not do it. There's just too much room for scamming people out of a lot of Neopoints. While the same argument could be used for item-based avatars, we just feel this would result in entirely too much trouble for everyone.
This is question 9574, archived from Editorial Issue 660.

Hey, TNT! *waves* I'm sorry that I couldn't submit this list for the last Editorial. My Internet connection went *poof* and I couldn't log in for several days. Anyway, after you published my question, tons of people informed me afterward that Petpets' base colors could be deduced by going to the All Petpet Colours page and comparing the unpainted Petpets with colored Petpets. Thanks, fellow users! Anyway, the list of Petpets whose unpainted / base colors we Neopians most wish to know are as follows: Noil, Scado, Scarabug, Clompkin, Whinny, Candychan, Batterfly, Skree, Tasu, Urchull, Noak, Mimbi, Quetzal, Wibreth, Naalala, Seece, Tomamu, Sandan, Quilin, and Xepru. Thank you for your time, and have a terrific day! ~indulgences
Oh, phew! There you are! We were worried that we somehow missed your response. As promised, here's a list:
Noil: Yellow
Scado: Brown
Scarabug: Blue
Clompkin: Green
Whinny: White
Candychan: Red
Batterfly: Purple
Skree: Green
Tasu: Green
Urchull: Brown
Noak: Blue
Mimbi: Red
Quetzal: Island
Wibreth: White
Naalala: Blue
Seece: Blue
Tomamu: White
Sandan: Blue
Quilin: Blue
Xepru: Red
If you're looking for a perfect, logical explanation of why each one was decided to be that colour, you're unlikely to find one. Different people have decided the base colours over the years, and many are very open to interpretation.
This is question 9062, archived from Editorial Issue 624.

Can you make a guide for how to return Petpets to their original colors? I know you've stated in the past that painting them with their base color (white, blue, etc.) would return them to their original states, but that instruction is kind of iffy. Plenty of Petpets are equal parts both pink and blue, or yellow and orange. Help? Can you make an actual guide that addresses this issue? Thanks!!! ~indulgences
As we have close to 500 separate species of Petpets, that'd be quite the undertaking, and not something we'd be willing to take time away from new content to provide. Most Petpets are pretty obvious, but we do know that some aren't so much. Even we've had trouble selecting what the base colour should be for a few. Tell you what, though -- if you send to the Editorial a reasonably-sized list (say, no more than 20) of the most questionably coloured standard (unpainted) Petpets, then we'll list what paint brush colour they are in the next Editorial. :) Sound fair?
This is question 9032, archived from Editorial Issue 622.

Can you make it so that people who already have the Avatar Collector avatar can't end up on the High-Score Table? It's insanely difficult to get on the High-Score Table because the top avatar collectors just have to disable, then re-enable, the Emo Usuki shopkeeper to get back on there. Thanks! ~indulgences
Closing that loophole has come under consideration, but we haven't made a decision regarding it yet.
This is question 8989, archived from Editorial Issue 619.

When I first started playing Neopets, I was a little nervous about not knowing what all the rules were. Eventually I learned the rules, but griped over how strict they were. Now that I own a six year account, I'm truly grateful for the rules that govern this site. They've kept my accounts safe from hackers, scammers, and more. Thank you TNT, for creating a safe and wonderful environment for us all to play in! ~indulgences
Archived from Editorial Issue 618.

I won the Gallery Spotlight twice, but for each win, my gallery items were mixed up and not in the order that I submitted them. I've seen other people win and their items were properly oriented. Why weren't mine? Do I have to ask the contest judge to please preserve the order in which my items occur? ~indulgences
The Gallery Spotlight code can be a little... spazzy. We've been linking directly to the galleries in New Features rather than the spotlight page for this reason.
This is question 8946, archived from Editorial Issue 615.

Will there ever be another Neopocalypse? I really want the avatar. :( ~indulgences
We really hope not. D:
This is question 8832, archived from Editorial Issue 608.

Someone recently visited the Battledome when she went to check on the stats of a Neopet. She accidentally got the dagger on her side account, and then when she went to Faerieland to decline a quest on her side account, she got the daily item. I had a similar problem a long time ago... sometimes I'd forget which account I was on and collect Monthly Freebies by accident just by visiting the page. Can you make it so that you have to click an "accept" button to receive items from these places? Thanks! ~indulgences
Don't sweat it. It's pretty easy to tell from our end who has made a minor mistake and who is abusing multiple accounts. Unless you're making a habit of something or "accidentally" visiting on all of your accounts, don't worry about the occasional flub. That said, please don't interpret our understanding of mistakes as an opportunity for abuse.
This is question 8615, archived from Editorial Issue 593.

Are we allowed to collect the Shiny Obsidian, Miscellaneous Gears, and Scrap Metal and Stone found in Moltara on our side accounts? ~indulgences
The Scrap Metal is a Random Event, so you guys have no control over that of course. The other items are considered a daily, and should not be collected on your side accounts. Who would want to trip over all this junk anyway?
This is question 6392, archived from Editorial Issue 419.

Let's suppose you were lent a Neopet for the Battledome or for an avatar. If you were to change something about the Neopet, such as changing its gender, or painting it, or removing its paint brush clothes, and then you returned the Neopet, is that reportable? (It seems pretty reportable to me, but I think it would be nice to get an answer in the Editorial itself.) ~indulgences
Uh, yeah... you don't borrow a friend's car and paint it green with pink polka dots and take out their stereo and replace it with an inferior one when you have it. That's just wrong. D: So yes, we're gonna say it's reportable unless it's something that was beyond their ability to stop (like a Random Event attack). Though we feel we need to say that, if you claim the Pant Devil stole their Sword of Skardsen while in your possession and we find it in that side account you're sure we'd never find, all your accounts will be frozen like last year's Thanksgiving turkey... just so you know. ;)
This is question 5468, archived from Editorial Issue 355.

For every 100th Poetry Contest you usually award the rare "Alstaf Poogle" collectible card. Therefore, I was a bit disappointed when I received a common Petpet Paint Brush when I got accepted in the 1,000th Poetry Contest. I'm not upset, of course -- I love prizes! -- but what made you decide not to award "Alstaf Poogle" for an issue as important as the 1,000th? ~indulgences
Worry not! According to our poetry queen, there is an extra prize heading your way!
This is question 5443, archived from Editorial Issue 353.

Let's say you use the transfer option to receive a Neopet that's being lent to you. How long will it be before you can use the transfer option to give it back? There appears to be a lag of a certain number of days. ~indulgences
It is currently set to once a month, but we soon hope to have it set to once per day.
This is question 5291, archived from Editorial Issue 341.

I know that disabling Java isn't allowed while restocking from the main shops (Editorial Issue 275). HOWEVER, you've never said whether disabling Java at the Kadoatery to feed Kads, or at the Neopian Employment Agency to grab jobs, is allowed or not. Is this also considered cheating? I'm often able to restock really rare 1-in-stock items from the main shops, which means everybody else is using Java like me, but I've never been able to feed a single Kad! I think it's because other people have disabled Java when they go to feed! :( ~indulgences
We hope people haven't been doing that! When we say don't disable Java or images or whatnot to give yourself an advantage, we mean everywhere. Using the same thing to feed Kadaoties or get Employment Agency jobs would be a huge no-no as well.
This is question 4688, archived from Editorial Issue 303.
