Charity Corner is back! Thanks TNT I hate it!

 

perkhubpage.png

 

For some godforsaken reason, you have to donate this year from your inventory

 

Open an item

Select the big "I don't need it button"

It's laggy, so wait (if you click it multiple times it's kinda buggy)

Go back to CC hub

Press the lever

wait for a long animation

congrats you get points

 

 

Maximum of 10 items per donation, and if you bug it by pressing the button too many times it doesn't let you donate until you remove some items. It's not great

 

 

Point amounts:

 r1-r79: 1 point
 r80-89: 2 points
 r90-97: 6 points
 r98-r100: 8 points
 r101: 1 point
 r102-r179: 4 points
 r200: 15 points
 

 

Leftover points from last year allegedly carry over to this year's Perk Shop. No specifics have been released on that yet though.

 

 

Avatar for donating 100 items:

It depends what this is:

Can I Keep It? Grants a beautiful, exclusive item you'll definitely want to keep!
Duration : 1 Time

 

though that's 2k points and randomly selected out of 10 options, it looks like? not ideal. I miss the stamps.

Scratch Master

Description: Allows you to buy two scratchcards at once from any of the three Kiosks. Note: The Living with Less 'Scratch Master' perk does not stack with the Skirmish boon of the same name, which leaves you free to choose another boon should you be a member of the winning faction at the Battleground of the Obelisk.

Cost: 1,000 points

Duration: 1 week

 

 

Could be handy if going for MSkull

 

 

Limited Edition

Description: Allows you to convert any one of your pets into a limited edition species of your choosing. This perk can be applied once.

Cost: 5,000 point

 

Depends on if you can keep it

 

But I agree by far the best one is:

 

Perk Me Up but you only get a 1 in 10 chance of getting Can I Keep It which just suks

Could a program be written that makes this easier, or would that be too complicated to do in time? I’ll have to calculate how many points I want, it sounds really annoying to donate.

There's a TM/GM script for auto-donating out already, also buys HS snowballs to donate.
Available elsewhere (don't think I'm allowed to mention or link)

I'm doing the same thing. I was so excited for this event, but after seeing the perk shop, I was so ... *meh*
 
I mean, yay for bank interest boost and unlock a site theme and avatar you need - but WTF was the rest of it?

I'd be really excited if the Food Club thing was for a year - but 5000 points for a week. Is this a mistake? ONE WEEK? GTFU TNT

I really dislike the randomness of "PerkMeUp" - some perks are appealing but really not sure I want to spend 2k points to risk getting something useless to me. and AFAIK it has not been clarified anywhere (yet?) if you can get the perkmeup perks multiple times?

We are already living with less quality of life.

It’s to the point a script is a necessity than just pure laziness.

Site theme this year is 2k for a 1 in 10 chance. Absolutely nuts, considering they gave it for 1 point last year!

 

They haven't released a list of the avatars associated with the avatar perk this year either. Last year there was only 1 non-obtainable avatar associated, so if they don't change it, it's worthless

Oh, you made me laugh with that! So true! 

 

and I agree, I don't know how I would manage without a script to handle the donations as I am busy "adulting".

Agreed - I don't like the "random rewards section" either.

 

I was really excited for the chance to get both genders of the royal korbat avvie, but I don't even know if they will offer that again this year. :(

CC is a nightmare, and with the x10 hit method out of commission things aren't looking too good :(
 
To maintain some sanity, I cobbled together a really sloppy userscript that adds a 'Next Item' button in the item pop-up window.
 
Doesn't account for missing IDs (such as if you used/moved an item between two IDs), but if you're hauling stuff straight out of your SDB, I believe everything should be in order.
 
Extremely basic (and can't be bothered to put it on github) so here's the whole code below. Feel free to do whatever with it. Works with Chrome + Tampermonkey, haven't tried others.
 
The mindless manual labor that CC demands isn't going to change, but hopefully this can help make things just a smidge less bothersome while we hold out desperately for a bulk donation feature
 
Godspeed to you brave souls
 
Edit: This works best when you're moving stuff out in-bulk from the SDB!
 
Item IDs seem to be assigned on the instant that they appear in the inventory, so moving in-bulk from the SDB tends to keep the IDs chronological.
 
Things that entered the inventory from random events and dailies, or items withdrawn from the SDB during different times may not work as intended. (because the code is super basic haha)
 
Got this off Reddit

I'm a gambler with everything that doesn't matter. I just want 2000 points for that random perk... perk. I don't give a shit about most of the perks, I just want the sidebar perk for something good.

Yer 2000 points is probably my goal too, although it will depend on whether or not i can find enough items #notahoarder :p

TNT have posted about CC:

 

 

We will be simplifying the discard system. The update is expected to go live on Monday.

Along with it, we will also increase the number of items that can be donated in one go, from 10 to 15, and we plan to keep increasing it incrementally as long as it doesn't cause too much load on the servers. Mass discard is not an option right now.

 

 

'Avatar Goldmine' will give you a 30% increased chance of getting High Roller, Edna – Cackle!, Lever of Doom, and Snowager – Rawr!

Perk Me Up can be bought multiple times.

The FAQs will be updated tomorrow with this info.

Perk shop faq is up too: http://www.neopets.c...perks/faq.phtml

 

Looks like the new avatar perk won't do anything for you if you got it last year (it only has 1 unobtainable avatar it gives away, the royal korbat)

 

Perk me up confirmed for totally random.

 

Points carryover is crap, something like:

1k  = 360
5k  = 1560
10k = 2560
20k = 3560
50k = 6560
100k= 7060
