I used to neopets sooo hard. I started warriors rp guilds with my friends and everything! I occasionally get into it for another few weeks here and there even now, but the economy is so wrecked..
thinking of wrecked economies, not really a pet site but I did do gaia online for a while. before it really died in economics hell

More recently, I did flight rising for a bit, haven't in a while but I might get back into it sometime, who knows. I had a good lioden account going too but lioden is too time consuming for me in the school year, I really appreciate their manual rollover system tho. makes it so easy to take a break and then come back
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand i may have just joined gryffs.

I'm honestly having a hard time getting into Gryffs everything is so expensive and earning gold is so slow @_@ then again this happens on mweor to some extent too I guess. Dangit petsites why your economies so wrecked *waves fist*

I also find it weird that Gryffs doesn't have a proper forum. I don't wanna talk in the chat I wanna post on a board but the only thing they have is advertisement boards?? And it costs money to post on those for some reason too. It also costs a LOT of money to take a postcard off your gryff I don't get why everything is so expensive.......................single tear

most newbies don't start off playing just by themselves....!!! if you talk in chat everyone is super duper nice and will be very glad to throw things at you to help you get started!! it is really hard to start earning gold by yourself, yeha, but the economy is actually super stable~
most new people (well, that actually continue playing) tend to get a stable start from the older players giving a hand... it took me ages but i actually started completely from the bottom with no help. it's doable but not very fun :P

gryffs isn't really big enough for a forum, i'm kind of glad there isn't one... it makes everything feel nice and cozy, everyone is Friends and it's just nice! i'm used to it though ;w;

i never even got my hands on a postcard until i could well afford the 5k, since it's not really that much once you get started...
though i guess since you joined during the time they changed the backgrounds that stock in the mountains, there isn't a constant supply you can get from there like when i started... EVERYONE is stalking the mountains to hoard those up

i have some nicely leveled gryffs you could borrow (or have, even) :0

I started by myself before being given some gryffs, and near as I can tell it's hard but doable. My strategy was training my gryff as much as I could, using remaining energy for item hunting, selling everything, and going through the meadow for fruit baskets to sustain hunger.

Man, I thought the Neopets economy was broken over a decade ago. I can't even imagine how much worse it must be at this point, but it seems like it's pretty bad.
Still kind of wish I could go on my old account again, though.

Any of y'all want to join Flight Rising, it's apparently open registration now (thanks to Shade for letting me know)

I am DFW on there because APPARENTLY they only allow 16 letters max for usernames and Darkforestwarrior is 17 letters ;______;

Out of sheer curiosity: people keep talking about some drama with Arcane in March on the FR forums. If it's not a taboo subject, might I ask what happened? Was it just some strange dominance push mishap? If it's something nobody's supposed to mention I understand totally, but I am v v curious...

DragCave updated for their 10th anniversary with lovely backgrounds on the site (and of course a new release.)  Love the backgrounds; they're so marigold pretty!

I went to Wajas for the first time in ages.

First impression: this site theme is godawful, what is that font?! Why is everything stretched improperly?

Second: My oldest Wajas are over 3000 days old, how long has it been?!

Third: ... Oh, honey, that map...

Overall rating: 2/5

Nostalgia filters are great until that font burns your retinas out. Also, everything is completely counter-intuitive in terms of how it's laid out. Not surprised they're no longer the tops.
