So I figure I haven't posted here in years and I'm coming around again to fix that itch that builds up every so often. I figured I'd start off by talking about the absolute biggest regrets or dumbest mistakes we've ever made on Neopets...

 

Recently, I started back up and decided to put a couple several million dollar + stamps in my album without checking there price, cause they were all the rage years ago.

 

A couple years ago I was selling calculus basics for a couple hundred grand and now they're hitting around 5 mil a pop... Ohh life choices (same for Snowbunny, 300k+ really? :'(

 

Forever ago, I got hustled on a rainbow negg trade for a plushie paint brush not the one I actually wanted, I never checked the trade fully out was too excited lol

I used a FFQ on my old account (that was purged), that I made when I was 10 or so (back when we still had the bar thing at the top of the screen), for a baby Eyrie. I thought baby was just sooo expensive and it would make me seem like I had lots of NP. When in reality I had none, and baby was not expensive.

Didn't realize proxies were a thing when I first joined the scene, and couldn't figure out how I got caught having 20 different accounts under my home IP.

When I was first playing I had a gallery and filled it with every healing potion. I thought it was the best ever and got pissed at people when they didn't think it was as cool as I did lol

When I was like 14 I found a phishing site, which I knew was a phishing site, but I wanted to experiment with it and see what they'd do. So I put in the (real) username and password for one of my empty side accounts.

My MAIN account then got hacked and I lost a few mill (which was a lot for me as a kid). I realised when I logged back into the account like a year later that I had once sent myself a neomail, from my main account to my side account with a message like "Hey me, it's me!!" so clearly the hacker just saw that that must be my main. Yes I used the same password for both accounts. I was a genius.

until very recently all of my accounts had the same password. Ito took me 10 years to realize how stupid that is.

Scoresended a shockwave game that probably couldn't be played anymore. Got frozen a couple of days later. It was during that time a lot of account got unrightfully frozen so idk if it was because of that or the scoresending. Probably the latter.

I managed to find a Draik in the pound when they were worth like 20 million. And someone neomailed me telling me they would give me a draik mp if i sent the time i was going to pound the draik. They even had all these draik mps in there trades. Probably was like 12 or 13 when it happened and i felt pretty dumb about it thinking back on it :(

I've been playing this game so goddamn long that I remember when the rainbow pool was first introduced, and you got to use it if you clicked on advertisements and signed up for bullshit. If you did a certain amount, you could morph your pet to any species and color you wanted. I used this for all 4 of my crappy pets. I used the FFQ to turn one into a striped tuskaninny. Ugh.

 

More recently, I traded an UC Mara Gelert (one of my favorite UCs) for a draik just a couple months before the value of draiks plummeted.

well this isnt about neopets, but trading in cs:go. I made sure to use a legit middleman thats available from steamrep to sell a ~$300 knife, turns out the middleman was not actually legit and took my knife and ran. Still dont know why he was listed as a legit middleman to this day but moral of my story for me is never sell anything outside of steam store :(

Er....sexual favors for paintbrushes (trying not to judge, but dang that's hardcore) :/

 

I think one of the dumbest things I've ever done [on neopets] is not put in my real date of birth - as I was an overly paranoid little kid *eyeroll* - and then locked myself out of my account as I couldn't remember the fake birthdate..

 

Most of the stupid things I've done lately though....and I'm not proud about the intelligence regression.

forgetting birthdays/pins or not saving them has been haunting me as an error ever since i started playing.

 

there's also that time i bought a faerie paint brush plushie for 300k as a kid bc i didn't notice the "plushie" in the name and thought i was getting a great deal LOL
