National Neopian Pound Day!

So Monster came up with an amazing idea to hold a National Neopian Pound Day, or NNPD for short. What is NNPD, you ask? It's a day where the citizens of the Pound Chat and beyond decide to release our own unwanted but painted and/or well-named pets into the pound for others to adopt and enjoy as their own; something that happens so rarely under normal circumstances.

The first NNPD will be Saturday, October 29, all day long. Feel free to pound your pets at any time during that day for a special surprise to those in need.
This will be followed up by NNPD: Stuck Pets edition on Sunday, October 30th. We will post all the pets that were not adopted or were stuck on this page, to help get the remaining adopted.

Note: Please look for an "Official Pound Catch Announcements" board on the Pound Chat the day of. Please feel free to announce your new pets on that board, rather than making your own, to minimize the number of boards being made on that day. :) Thank you!


How You Can Participate/Help

There are so many ways you can participate!

1. Sign up to pound one of your unwanted pets! Regular old poundees - badly-named basics - are fine, but on this special day, we're looking especially for painted and/or well-named pets! If you would go so far to offer to donate a draik/unconverted/krawk to the pound for this project, we will publicly acknowledge your special kindness before and after, on this page.
(Please remember that all clothed pets lose their clothes onto your account when they go into the pound, and that pets like magma pets and ice boris change into basics when they are released. Also keep in mind that lutaris can't be pounded; they simply disappear.)

To sign up, please neomail Monster, Luna, or Me (Victoria, at this side account of painted_pet_pound :D) with the username of the account(s) you're pounding from and which pet you are pounding. I stress that it's a pet and not pets because remember, you can only pound one pet per account per day. However, we would love it if you could offer to give as many of your pets as possible to this project, meaning one pet each from more than one of your accounts. :)
If you have room on any of your lab ray accounts, please feel free to take the time now to pick up an unwanted pet from the pound and start zapping to release on NNPD. :)

2. Help spread the word! For now, we only have this nifty petpage. Feel free to stick the link in your sigs, lookups, petpages, whatever. We are in the process of trying to make banners and sigs to help artfully promote NNPD. :)
/~NNPDGraphics, run by the lovely Luna, hosts the current graphics. :)

3. Help with graphics! We are currently in need of the following:
- a custom layout for this page - This is a lovely premade from Nienke's Premades, but we would appreciate it oh SO much if you could design a pretty little custom one we could use.
- banners to help promote - are you artsy? We could always use a banner to link to this page for people to put on their userlookups, pet lookups, petpages, etc.
- advertising signatures - For those of you with wise knowledge of neoHTML and ways to maximize that tiny space, we need you! We want something pretty/cool that people will display proudly as they post on the boards, telling people about this project with their every post!
Current graphics are hosted at /~NNPDGraphics. :)

Thank you SO much if you decide to participate in some way. This project's success depends on people like you!

Tell the World About Us!

Until some kind Neopians can help us out with number 3 above, all we have is a link to this page: www.neopets.com/~NNPD.
For now, please feel free to place this URL however and wherever you like - make your own NeoBoards sig, put it on your lookup, whatever - to help us spread the word. :)

Buttons, banners, and neoHTML signatures to be added later as they come in.

FAQs

Feel free to suggest questions to add to this section!

Won't greedy people on NNPD try to grab as many pets as they can for trading?
Yes, this is true. However, if we have the support of many others, we can balance out the pets released that day so that we can significantly raise the odds that less fortunate Neopians (like those 10-year-olds who can't trade on the PC and often have trouble making enough Neopoints to paint their pets) can grab a painted or well-named pet of their very own. :)
Pound a pet, make someone happy.

Your Dream Team

Monster (paiu) - The mastermind of this entire project.
Luna (cassie142000) - A sort of co-president for the project. She makes graphics and hosts the graphics page at /~NNPDGraphics.
Victoria (airotciv_ol2) - A sort of co-president for the project - I host this page and help organize/brainstorm ideas for the project.
pheonix (its_the_pheonix269) - Monster's sister and another co-president - she does public relations and marketing.
Note: The four of us have solemnly made a pact that because we know what pets are going into the pound, we are NOT allowed to grab any pets pounded that day of. We solemnly promise this and hold our reputations to this.

And everyone who is pounding a pet on this special day should belong here, too, but their names will be kept a secret for what you will find in the pound the day of. :)
