TO GUP OR NOT TO GUP?
Hello there! If you're here you probably know about GUP and its practices. If not, I don't feel like explaining. Go here.
On this page I'll post the results of a vote. Should people GUP pets or not? I'll also put up quotes from both sides.
THE CURRENT COUNT
These are updated every day or so.
I dont even find that GUPPING a pet from an interrupted transfer is rude. If the pet matters so much it should be transferred not pounded. ~Rawri
I dont agree with any part of GUPing, even if it is a skeith or mynci. I would still take care of them and paint them so that I could Pound and give someone their dreamie + make someone happy ^^
If they dont want the pet, Pound them. He/she could go to a great home. They might get re-traded, but they would eventually find an owner that would take care of them + love em n_n
Dude, we have transfers now. There is no reason anyone should ever lose a dream pet unless they risk the pound, in which case it's their own fault.
Imo, GUP the organization is pretty.. elitist. But I'm not going to parade around saying they're horrible, awful people, and deserve to be frozen, ect. They do whatever they want, and they can. Pets in the Pound belong to no one until they're adopted. Transferring or not.
You should quote me so I can feel famous. xD My quote: Go GUP! 8D *shot* xDDD ~Cheese
I pound surf alot. Do I pick up pets to turn them into Unis, I think NOT I agree I can't do anything nor I do I even care all that much however I still miss the point, or is there not one for this nonsense *shrug* Yay, let's all turn these pwnsome pets we found in the pound into green Unis, ya woohoo!.. Uhm why? lol
...They want to prevent people from "getting rich quick" by turning painted pets into Green Unis. So the people that would have gotten them can't have them for free. =/ Some weird egotistical, too-serious scheme like that.
Pet's owners choice. No one elses business. o.o
People who feel the need to make big board about "OMG LOOK AT ME GUPPING THIS DRAIK/KRAWK/UC" are annoying.. and yeah gupping itself is kinda lame but really I don't care.
I guess so. In my opinion, people who GUP are greedy. They GUP a well-painted pet, LE, etc and Pound it, so no one else can have him/her. I would understand GUPing a skeith or mynci because you like a certain color on unis better than other species, but GUPing a draik or krawk? Thats a little extreme.
I hate when people GUP just to get a rise out of people. Immaturity is one of my biggest pet peeves and that's DEFINITELY a sign of being immature. To purposely do something to tick other people off and get a laugh from it. BUT, It's their pet so they should do what they want. If someone CGed my account and GUPed my Draiks I would be FURIOUS.
TBH I don't care for it, but it's annoying when people will actually be stupid and think they're doing someone a favor by saying "I AM GUPPING THIS SO U CAN'T HAVE, GO EARN YOUR OWN PETS" Because like.. You gupping a pet I probably wouldn't have owned anyway will NOT change the fact that I am lazy.
I'm pretty upset that one of my pets found its way to a jerk like that, but bygones I s'pose.
GUPing is hilarious. I do it all the time. It's just a game, people, relax.
Ok, ok, first off, let me say somthing: It's not GUPing if you're just doing it to change your pet 'cause you're sick of a koi. You're GUMing... Green uni morphing. GUPing is for the GUP-- green uni /project/. Two different things.
I think everybody can do whatever they want. It's like saying you can't wear a blue T-Shirt. You want to, and you're on your right to do it! XD And even spending your REAL money on a blue T-Shirt.
Gupping is the most hilarious thing ever. If it offends you, you really need to take a step back and really think about why pixels that aren't even in your possession mean so much to you.
My take on this is that GUPing UC pets seems kinda mean spirited... but GUPing a painted pet that you're about to pound is a great idea.
Personally, I think people who pound surf to get nice pets for cheap to just trade up are (and I cannot think of another way to put this so please mind the offensive term) scum.
Buy earning NPs you can always recreated that same pet who was GUPed.
I agree, I hate the GUPing project -jabs lookup- hate hate hate ;-;... dreamies being GUPPED... Ick :T People these days, if they dont want nice pets then GET OFF NEOPET..dont ruin it for the rest of us ;-;
Some people play games
Some people feed Kads
Some people RS
Some people trade pets
Some people GUP pound pets
It's just what people choose to do with their time on neo. It's perfectly allowed, they adopt the pet from the pound they can do what they like with it, including spending their NP on GUP'ing it.
They're not ruining anyones chances of owning that pet as they got to it first, fair game.
Honestly, I don't care about the gupping thing. People that seem to be against it is the people that want free pets and are lazy to work them out themselves. No offense to anybody. I'm lazy if only for the fact I don't have an attention span to sit around refresh and play games. I make most of my nps by dailies and REs. XD
I'm not mean thanks, I just like to GUP.
