Hello, and welcome to Pamela's Lending! My name is Pamela
and I first started lending back when the pound re-opened in 2008. Since then my lending has expanded to include item lending and even a Darigan Tonu. I'm proud to say that I offer lending to the general public for all avatars except the following :
On this page you can find out everything you need to know regarding my lending. I ask that you please take the time to read anything and everything regarding whatever it is you wish to lend.
April 19, 2014 - Item lending & Darigan Tonu Battling Closed
Exams may be over, but that doesn't mean I'm around any more. :o In just over a week I start a new job that's 5+ hours away from my family whom I rarely saw well at school. As a result I likely will not be on much until I'm settled at my new job because I will be taking advantage of the time I have with my family. I hope you can understand.
April 8, 2014
- Finance and economics finals left.
May lists are up, so send in your lending requests. Response times are still sluggish but should hopefully pick up. This is a crazy month for me as I'm wrapping up the semester and also preparing to move so I'm trying to juggle more than I'm use to. As a result, I appreciate everyone's patience.
April 2, 2014
- Are final exams over yet?
I apologize in advance for not being as involved in this month's chain lends. Finals start tomorrow and go until the 15th of April for me and during this I'm also trying to find a place to live for the summer as I have to relocate for work. So if you could be patient while waiting for a response from me that would be great. April 1, 2014
- Lends are
delayed a go
Yet again the pound is TNT's April Fools Day victim so once again we
can not transfer out pets. I apologize but it is out of my control.
Thanks to Sadiq
for pointing out that the transfers do still work. Just click here
to go to the page to transfer a pet.March 29, 2014
- unfrozen within 2 hours of being frozen
So it's been a crazy day. First I was frozen and I was going through all of the motions to get my account back. Now two hours later, without my ticket even being touched I have my account back. So for those waiting to get their accounts back, have faith! Hopefully TNT will help you soon as well.
March 25, 2014
- 30 to 50 cm of snow
I want to thank all of the amazing people that have agreed to volunteer to hold my pets for me this month as I prepare to potentially be without power this week. For more info about my storm preparation for my lending please click here
.March 16, 2014
- Expect delays this week
Just a heads up that responses might be rather slow this week as I have a long list of things to do this week with classes wrapping up in a couple of weeks and finals following after. However, I will get back to you as soon as I can.March 7, 2014
- Brand New Button
Thank you Emma
for the brand new button! :) The purpose of buttons on a lending page is that they are a great way for lendees to link back to remember the location of the lend list and to help spread the word to other potential lendees. So if you could grab a button to link back, it would be greatly appreciated. You can find them under advertising.March 6, 2014
- Brand New Layout
Thank you Joaquin
for this beautiful new layout! If you are having any issues viewing it please send me a neomail so that I can see what can be done to fix it. If when you mail me you could include a screenie that would definitely help. I'm also slowly catching up on my neomails so please be patient with me.
Mar 4, 2014
I promise I see all of your mails and I will get back to them as soon as I can. However, what was already a hectic week to begin with became even crazier as I've been called in for an interview for Thursday so wish me luck! Mar 3, 2014
All item lending is temporarily closed because there is too many things I'm scheduled for in real life right now.Mar 2, 2014
and the lends are off! Nothing too exciting today other than there is a change in the works and I can't wait to share it with you guys! Feb 26, 2014
Hoping to fill up every lend to the 50% full mark within the next 48 hours. So please sign up for a lend if you need one.
The numbers next to the combo are the openings left.
Orange Grundo + Quadrapus + Mootix 8
Mummified Ruki + Mootix 8
Fire Blumaroo + Mazzew + Mootix 8
Pink + Meowclops + Mootix 8
Snow Draik + Slorg + Mootix 13
Coco Jubjub + Gruslen 5
Werelupe + Harris + Mootix 8
Grey Jetsam + Huggy 16Feb 20, 2014
The lending lists are updated. Everyone was accounted for except for the draik and fire blumaroo which are between accounts at the moment.Feb 16, 2014
So since my last update a lot has happened in the world of chain lending. We've said good-bye to Diana
who for years was the true
queen of lending.
On top of that many lenders have been experiencing problems within their chain lends this month and I am not an exception to this. Krawk + Snowbunny + Mootix was lent to one person then an issue came up it's on hold till next month. My Orange Grundo + Quad + Mootix list is also severely delayed, and hasn't moved at all either, so we'll see if anything happens with that. Snow Draik + Slorg + Mootix was stuck for a bit, but it's now on the go however it has extreme delays just as a heads up.Feb 3, 2014
Midterms start this week, so please be patient with me if you're mailing me regarding lending. I will get back to when I have the chance.
If you still need the Space Faerie as a challenger check out my new project, Space Faerie Code Seekers.
If you need the Pteri - Darigan avatar click here
Jan 29, 2014
In light of everything happening on the boards lately I highly recommend taking the time to make sure you have all the info on your account that would help you get it returned to you. Click here
for the general info that you would need. However, I recommend going beyond that and saving information like a list of your avatars in order of getting them, a record of all of your keyquest games (opponent's username, board, token you used, key you gained, and neopoints you earned), just to name a few random things only you would know.Jan 26, 2014
So looking through the lists while many are impressively full already there are some that could really use more lendees. The big one that really needs more lendees is Battledome + Mazzew + Mootix
. So if you know anyone that might be interested in borrowing it please have them neomail me as soon as possible.Jan 23, 2013
Long time no update. A lot has happened in the past week in regards to my lending.
IQ + Snickle and Coco + Gruslen filled up for February
Pink + Meowy is now Pink + Meowy + Mootix
All but two chain lends are done for JanuaryJan 09, 2013
My old OG + Mazzew + Mootix pet is now a FB + Mazzew + Mootix pet. So the FBs are now being swapped out and the FB + Mazzew + Mootix is being lent out from now on instead.Jan 07, 2013
So responses will likely be slow this semester. Click here
to see why.
I finally got through all of the mails this afternoon though. Lending positions will hopefully be updated before I call it a night. Item lending is still closed.Jan 05, 2014
Got through all of the mails, and updated the list.
Item lending is closed while I re-adjust to university classes this week.Jan 02, 2014
Please use extra patience when waiting for a response from me over the next few days. We've had incredibly cold temperatures lately (-20C) and they're now forecasting an extreme blizzard. As a result there are high chances that I might lose power and who knows how long it will take to get it back.Jan 01, 2014
Can I just say this is one of the best send-offs I've had in awhile? All of the pets except for the one with the pet holder are off on day one.
February lends will most likely open up tomorrow. However, don't mail until you see the coding for the lists on the page please.Dec 27, 2013
Most of the lists are wrapped up for the month and I'm focusing on getting lendees for January 2014 (oh my gosh how is it almost 2014? I feel old now...). I've also changed things up a bit. Old updates can be found by clicking the 'updates' in the navigation and clicking 'text updates'. Under 'open/closed' you can see what I'm currently taking requests for and what's currently closed at the moment.12/19/13
Slowly getting through all of the mails. I'm hoping to get through all of them tonight and to try and stay on top of them. However, I'm visiting family that I haven't seen in months due to school so please be patient with me while I try to juggle spending time with them and neopets. Also item lending is closed
until at least December 29th due to poor internet connection at the family I'm staying with at the moment.12/19/13
I have received all the mails, however, I don't have the time to respond to all of them right now. I hope to get to that tonight.12/15/13
Just a heads up I might not be on too much for the next 48 to 72 hours. I'm travelling for the holidays on Tuesday and seeing family friends I haven't seen in months so I will be focusing my time on them instead of on neo for a change. I hope everyone can understand.12/12/13
If I could put music to this, I would put the boys are back
from high school musical 3 as the background sound. Although realistically I never really stopped lending instead I just didn't have the page... which only created more confusion for myself. On topic though feel free to request a lend for either December or January.
Well I do manage the lends, I can not do it all on my own. A big part of my lending is actually advertising my lending, and I do really appreciate it when I see people assisting me in advertising. However, not everyone knows how they can help so I've included some examples below.
Bumping The Boards
Links: CLU AC Board
This is easily the most common way to advertise my lending and it's definitely where I could use the help. The more often my board is at the top, the more likely someone is to see it. So if you could possibly take a moment each day to leave a bump on one of them it would be really appreciated.
Take a Button
I have numerous link back buttons in the sitely section of my lending page. If it's possible for you to take a button and put it on your look-up and in your shop that would be greatly appreciated. Below are the buttons for your convenience. If you click on the button while on the page you can see who created it, however, once you grab the code it will be coded to link back to my lending page.
What is a chain lend?
Chain lending is a common way of lending avatar pets. It's through safe transfers and allows the lender to use just one of their own sets while lending numerous people.
How does a chain lend work?
If after this basic explanation of how a chain lend works and you still have a few questions, feel free to ask me for clarification.
- Lender contacts Lendee A to confirm that they're ready to receive the pet.
- Lendee A confirms, and Lender sends to them.
- Lendee A gets the avatar(s).
- Lendee A contacts Lendee B to confirm that they're ready to receive the pet.
- At this point there could be two different scenarios, one where the Lendee B confirms and one where Lendee B doesn't reply with 24 hours or says not to send to them.
- Lendee B confirms, and Lendee A sends the pet to them.
- Lendee B gets the avatars.
- Lendee B contacts Lendee C to confirm that they're ready to receive the pet.
- Lendee B says no or doesn't reply within 24 hours, therefore Lendee A should contact the lender informing them that they'll be skipping Lendee B.
- Lendee A contacts Lendee C to confirm that they're ready to receive the pet.
- Lendee C confirms, and Lendee A sends the pet to them.
and that is how a chain lend works. :)
Safe transfers are a method of moving a pet from one account to another that TNT introduced when they re-opened the pound back in 2008. However, it seems even all these years later, people are still confused as to how many transfers they get. Well, hopefully with the chart below it will clear things up for you.
When we say in transfers we mean the transfers that you use to accept a pet, and with the out transfers we mean the transfers you use to send a pet to another user.
0 - 23 months
24 - 47 months
48 - 71 months
72 - 95 months
96 - 119 months
120 - 143 months
This guide is intended for use when battling with Meafis and the following set. It's a relatively cheap set in comparison to what most pets require you to use.
Scroll of Freezing
Thick Smoke Bomb
Ghost Lupe, & Kasuki Lu
All of these challengers are incredibly easy for Meafis. As a result the same single move will defeat all of them.
Move 1: Golden Compass + Lens Flare
Meuka & Black Pteri
These two are a little harder for Meafis to defeat so it does take two moves to defeat the opponents but it's still do-able.
Move 1: Golden Compass + Lens Flare
Move 2: Golden Compass + Warlock's Rage
A guide for these challengers and the Defender of Neopia challengers prior to them will be added once TNT fixes Defenders of Neopia.
It's important to note that this only works if the Space Faerie doesn't
use her Jade Scorchstone. If she uses her Jade Scorchstone you will have to try again.
Move 1: Golden Compass + Water Muffin + Lens Flare
Move 2: Golden Compass + Scroll of Freezing + Warlock's Rage
Move 3: Golden Compass + Water Muffin + An Icicle
Move 4: Golden Compass + Thick Smoke Bomb + An Icicle
Move 5: Golden Compass + An Icicle
Congrats! You should have defeated the Space Faerie by then if she doesn't use the Jade Scorchstone.
I was the first one to ever request from Out of This World, and I'm glad I did. Rose was able to make me think about things that I don't even think about after all of these years. However, the part I found the most beneficial is that she reminded me that Pamela's Lending is all about communication, which I am working to improve and do more of.
Alia, was very kind and offered to review Pamela's Lending after we received a layout from Joaquin. She had such amazing things to say about what she saw, and the advice about the basics section was definitely taken into consideration. I highly recommend checking out Alia's Reviews if you need a review.
It's Raining Cupcakes was the second review site that was willing to review my lending page. I thoroughly enjoyed hearing what Hannah thinks I'm working on well and the advice she gave me. Such advice included removing the old news section, removing old link back buttons and some minor visual things on the layout.
On September 16, 2013 I received a review back from Adieu, which I am forever grateful for. They are the first review site to willing review a lending site and give great feedback on things I could improve on. Since receiving this review, I've fixed all the grammar and spelling errors (sadly there were many of these), and I've changed the layout (September 23). These two things were the main things I received feedback on and I'm excited to keep improving and potentially ask for a re-review to see what other things they might suggest for me.
