Why is Sunny Quitting?

Honestly? Because when I returned to Neo I thought I would be able to get inspired again and work on my pets and stories like I used to, but even though I started out that way, I realized recently that it's time for me to grow up in this area so I have time to be a child in other areas. I'm in college now, and I don't have time to waste on a site that I barely have any real inspiration for.

A lot of my old friends have left or quit anyway, save for a handful. So I guess I'm just following them, really.

This is for real this time. No coming back. Giving out all of my pets, saying my goodbyes, regretting the neocash I spent, and even Rita will be leaving me.

Please don't try to convince me to stay. I've decided. It's going to happen regardless of how many people beg and plead. :)
OTHER QUITTING FRIENDS (WOO!):

Rules

Here's how this is going to go down. I'd prefer not to waste people's time/effort if possible. But in order to allow folks to have an app process they can enjoy, I shall give you THREE (yes three) options for how to go about your application.

Method #1: Apply for your own pet.
Work on one pet throughout the app process. Keep track of your progress on that pet's page/lookup. Note that working on a pet doesn't just mean art, pages, writing etc. It also can be BC'ing, gourmet club, reading books, training, petpets, etc. At the end of the process, NM me a link to the page you used to keep track of your progress. This allows you to not waste your time on a pet you don't own.

Method #2: Apply Normally.
If you just prefer the normal app process, you can do it this way. Petpages/NM are fine. I do not require petpages, nor do I need them. In fact, I am often very impressed if you manage to write a very well written NM app that doesn't sound like a condensed petpage app.

Method #3: Fill out my "Random Questionnare" and slap it on a petpage/neomail.
This is just a form with some very random (and a couple partially sane) questions for you to answer. You can ether throw the answers in a neomail, or slap them on a blank petpage.



**No method will be favored over the other. All of these have a chance for a pet.**

GENERAL NO-NOS:

* Threatening other applicants.
* Bad-Mouthing
* Reporting after pets are adopted out. (Aka an "If I can't have _____, nobody can mentality.)
* Begging for my items, other pets, or my NC stuff.
* Treating my adoption boards like giveaways. (I will NOT be handing stuff out on my boards!)
* Disrespecting Others
* Kissing Up
* Lying.
* Harassing my friends/owners I choose to adopt my pets.

STUFF TO KNOW:

* I'm trying to list all the questions I get that are somewhat important in the FAQ, so if you have a question, please do check there THEN neomail me/ask on my board. ;)
* I use Google Chrome, on a 13 inch macbook.
* My resolution is 1280x800.
* I don't mind if you use premades. Heck, you can even use stuff from Hot Potato.
* I'd rather have a well edited premade over a horribly made custom layout.
* Gender changes are fine.
* Side accounts are fine.
* I can wait a bit for accounts to age, but please don't make me wait more than a month if possible. If you need more time than that, might I suggest having a friend/family member hold that pet for you?
* Yes. You can apply to retrade. Just MENTION it instead of claiming that you want to keep a pet.
* I'd prefer permie homes, but I'm okay with adopting out to retraders.
* If you're retrading, apply for the pet you want.
* Repainting/morphing is fine, as long as you're not morphing them into highly painted draiks for status. In that case I will have to drop-kick you.
* I don't care if you collect words, UCs, draiks, etc. Everyone has a chance.
* I don't speak other languages, save for a smattering of spanish that's enough to offend someone. I will need apps to be translated. It's ok if english is not your first language!
* I remember being an applicant who couldn't draw, write, or do art. Just do what you can.
* Recycled content is fine. Just add to it please.
* I lurk the app chats, and the PC. If you act like a jerk, chances are I will know about it, so um, ether lie and hide your jerk-like actions until after the app process, or don't apply if you are a jerk. You know. *shrug*
Deadline: April 30th
**PLEASE READ THE FAQ IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION BEFORE NM'ING ME.
(USE CONTROL/COMMAND + F IF NEEDED. :D)**

The Pets

Rita_Thief12345678

Rita has been sent to my writing buddy, Kathleen. :)

Spooking

Spooking is going UFA now, since Sparkie doesn't feel she can do her justice (I think Sparkie can do anything, but that's me. :D).

Humor

Humor shall be adopted out. She was traded for. I traded an UC faerie ixi for her. Obviously I will be pretty picky since she's worth quite a bit trading wise and I know a lot of neopians will be after her as fodder.

Writer

Writer will be adopted out, along with Reader and Character. These are the only three ixi I will consider adopting out together. Otherwise the most I'll consider adopting out to one person is ONE ixi. She has a bronze BC trophy. Her White Weewoo (Quill) can come with her if needed.

Reader

Reader will be adopted out, along with Writer and Character. These are the only three ixi I will consider adopting out together. Otherwise the most I'll consider adopting out to one person is ONE ixi. Her geeky Geb (Librarian) can come with her.

Character

Character will be adopted out, along with Writer and Reader These are the only three ixi I will consider adopting out together. Otherwise the most I'll consider adopting out to one person is ONE ixi.

Bootlegger

Bootlegger will be adopted out. Not much to say about her. Planned to paint her skunk. If you don't know what a Bootlegger is, you really should look them up. Really cool historical background.

Wharf

Wharf will be adopted out. He has his clothes, so there's nothing much else to say on this subject really. His painted Pirate Warf (Named Docks) can come with him if you'd like.

Traverses

Traverses will be adopted out. I hand painted this lovely ixi eventide. I will be quite picky, to be honest, since I worked so hard.

Xellaration

Xellaration may not have stats, trophies, or a real word name, but he is mentioned in the only two neopian times stories I ever got published. He's a pretty sweet hissi. And I'd appreciate it if he found a nice home. His matching petpet (Sleth) can go with.

Ladyship

Ladyship was given to me by Kathleen. Kathleen doesn't want her back, so she's UFA.

Impostor

Impostor will be UFA. Nothing else really.


Premade

Premade has been sent to Dee (deegoes) so she can continue to run Hot Potato. Dee was the real coding brains behind the site anyway. I just kept it updated, made mockups, and did some minor stuff.

Adopter

Adopter has been sent to Dee. (Deegoes)

Endanger

Endanger will be going UFA. She has her clothes, and a BC trophy.



Potioned

Potioned was hand created/painted by me. She will go UFA. She has a trophy.


Resourceful

resourceful was pound stuck and uncapped when I found him. Although the uncapped letter might deter folks, he is a pretty nice name for a thief character.

Joyfulness

Joyfulness shall be going UFA. I'd prefer someone who will keep the grumpy wocky meme alive.

Zoon

Zoon was seriously just adopted from a quitting friend, but this idea of me quitting kinda came suddenly after I realized I don't really care much about this place anymore. She's a 4L, which makes her valuable, but she's also the name of an old friend, which makes me picky. Kapeesh?

Neocash

Neocash will be UFA. I'd prefer for her to go to an active NC chatter if possible, but that's just my own personal preference. Her petpet (Neopoint the Cofferling) can come with her if needed. (Fun fact: She and Humor actually were born a few hours apart! Found this out after I traded for both of them!)

Oversee

Oversee was traded for by me, and I was planning to keep him but then ran out of room. A buddy's been holding him for a month or so, and I (seriously) just remembered his existence. #fail So, um, yeah. He's UFA. I've moved him to my main so I can zap him. No real attachment here.

Proportionate

Proportionate is a former stuck pet who I have decided to adopt out because I had space and spare NPs, so why not? I morphed/painted him into a sketch ixi because I thought it fit. Not picky with this little dude at all. He now has a petpet, Disproportionate the Sketch Raindorf, that can come with him if desired.

Vertebrai

A wild Vertebrai has appeared! Vertebrai is the surprise pet that I am now going to be adopting out. Her nickname (at least that /I/ call her) is Miss V. She was hand created/FFQ'd just for me to adopt out. :)

Resources

I'm putting together a list of pets that people have said they'd happily trade for the pets currently UFA. This is a RESOURCE for those of you applying to retrade.

Rough Values of My Pets

FAQ

This section is here so you can ask any burning questions you may have. Don't worry, I won't be offended. :)

Q: But you just returned to neopets! Why quit?

A: I returned because I thought that I could get back into the old groove I had and be creative like I used to. But with the transition, the move, and just the fact that a lot of glitches and content issues have been going on, I've realized that I really don't enjoy the site as much as I thought I would. I've gotten bored, honestly.

Q: What will you do with your neocash stuff?

A: More than likely I'll hold a quitting capsale and work on getting some stuff for some friends. If there's a particular NC item you see you want on my pets, please don't hesitate to mail and ask about it.

(You can also look up the user "ixiholic" on DTI to see my stuff too.)

Q: How picky will you be with your pets?

A: Not gonna lie, quite picky. Not because they're RWs or anything, but because they are still members of my family, and I still love them, even though I'm leaving. I'd really prefer permie homes, but I know that retrading is a popular thing, so I'm not going to hold it against folks if they want to apply to retrade.

Q: Do I have a chance if I can't draw/write/code?

A: Heck yea! I don't hold that against people. As long as you are loving YOUR pets in YOUR own way, that's all that matters. Just show that effort some how! You can love pets without even touching a pencil or a line of code!

Q: Could we combine the methods somewhat if we really wanted to?

A: If you want to, go for it. Just don't go overboard, ok? I don't need an insanely complicated application. Because in the end I won't be able to read/view it all and it'll just be a waste of time for you more than likely.

Q: So, um, draik morphing = bad?

A: Draik morphing just so you look elite and not having a legitimate reason behind it is frowned upon, yes. However, if you have a legit reason for wanting a RW to be a draik, do it. Just don't do it only for the reason that you want to look cooler and more amazing as a neopian, ya know?

Q: So is there a limit to how many pets we can apply for?

A: Honestly, I doubt I'll adopt out more than one ixi to someone, unless it's the Literary Trio (Reader, Writer, and Character, but if you want to try to change my mind on that, you can. Obviously if you make some sort of super insane app for all of my real word pets I will be amazed at your guts, but the chance of you actually adopting them all is slim to none.

Q: If I use the form can I add onto it?

A: If you want to explain some stuff or maybe write plans etc, but only if you want to. The form itself is all that's needed to be counted as an app.

Q: Are there any applicants you are favoring at the moment?

A: To be honest, I won't be "reading" the apps until the deadline. It's stupid to have "favorite" applicants during the app process and to keep leaning towards them and favoring them when everyone else is still working on their apps. I will not be reading any of the apps in depth until the deadline nears. If I get your app, I pretty much open it, check that it IS an application and not a question, then throw it into a waiting folder to hold until the deadline arrives.

Q: So um, is it bad if I don't want _______ to be an ixi?

A: No. These pets are going to be the property of their new owners. They won't be "mine" anymore. If the new owner wants someone to be a krawk, a draik, a uni, or even a plushie quiggle, that's ok, as long as they are happy with the pet they're adopting. :)

Q: Can I apply for Reader/Writer/Character alone, and split up the trio?

A: Yes. You can apply for 1, 2, or all three, just do what you'd like.

Q: I feel like I won't have a chance with *insert large number here* of folks applying for *petname*, not to mention I'm horrible at apps!

A: Option #3 is like five mins at most to fill out that little form. What's 5 mins of your time when you could possibly get the pet of your dreams? Just sayin'.

Q: Can I apply for a friend/family member or someone else?

A: No. Not because I don't trust said person, but those apps just get to be really messy. So please, apply for yourself, and not for others.

And, because I got asked this...I understand the whole desiring to apply for someone under 13 sort of thing, but honestly....I really don't dig that idea. I mean, there's not really any way I can 100% make sure you're being legit about it. And if I let one person slide, I have to let everyone who wants to apply for someone else slide. Sorry. :(

Q: What if we apply intending to keep, but then we lose all inspiration? Would it be ok to re-trade if that happens?

A: Here's the deal. My goal with this is to make you all happy. If you're happy with the pets I adopt out, awesome. If you're happier with the pet you get from trading them, awesome. My goal is to spoil some neopians before I leave. That's it.

Now, I know there's going to be some people who are going to be all sore and all like "But Sunny! These pets are your LEGACY. WHY WOULD SOMEONE DO THIS TO YOUR LEGACY?" You all can just hush.

My legacy on neopets should not be pets. My legacy should be how I conducted myself, and how I treated folks. If you really want to remember me, don't remember me by feeling like you have to justify how someone's treating pets I willingly gave away.

Remember me by being kind. By helping others. By being respectful when disagreeing with others. By trying to be a better neopian every day. THAT's how you remember me. Got it? Good. ;)


*steps off of soap box*

Q: Will Method #3 honestly be considered? How can you compare it to petpage/NM apps?

A: Honestly, the main thing I'm going to be caring about is the state of your current pets/accounts. I'm going to get that info regardless of if you make a petpage, NM, or a form app. Plans and everything else (including most of the form) are really just extra info that I will factor into the information I have about your accounts and pets.

I wouldn't have put Method #3 up there if I wasn't planning on using it, right? ;)

Q: Did you get my app for __________?

A: If you sent it, yes. I save every NM app I get into a folder, then I save that folder every couple of days to my computer. I have had over 90 something neomails (some, but not all of them broken up apps), from people applying for these pets. I sadly can't send all of you guys a NM letting you know I got your app. D:

Q: You need to do the form so you understand the pain I am going through filling it out!!! *sob*
