    I can't believe Neopets.

    I haven't logged into my account for a long time (just checked- says 229 days ago, wolframalpha'd that and got November 7th, 2011 as the result. Really?), so tonight when I tried they asked me for my birthday. I entered the right one and it's saying it's wrong.

    Turned to support. I'll let you know how that goes, I guess.

    Pretty sad. I really hate how large Neopets has gotten. I bet you anything my bug will be disregarded, despite the fact it's a pretty serious flaw.

    Wonderful. Just wonderful. I can't wait to see my old account deleted for inactivity for this crap. (Yes, Neopets does delete accounts for inactivity. 18 months inactive = account deletion)

    Screw Neopets, honestly...

    While waiting, why not we read through this glorious tumblr blog about how wonderful neopets can be?

    They haven't deleted accounts for over a year now I bleieve. They go through stages where they delete accounts on mass but don't have an ongoing script deleting accounts.

    Don't worry, I know exactly how you feel, my account Wullvare is still there and has the exact same bday error on it. And I've been trying to get back into that for 3 years.

    @cpvrcpvr - It seems you're braver than I am in many, many levels, sir. =w=

    There's also this; http://neopianangst.tumblr.com/

    It has a very clever layout design that mimics the neopian boards!

    Also this:

    I think I need to make a tumblr and send out some messages. I'd love to see a few of those people link to us!:style
    If you can do it as well, that would be good. And that layout design, hahaha!

    @cpvrcpvr - I also noticed the part where you bolded.. Like I had to re-read it again, then my mind was like 'click'! That is just so wrong in so many levels. XD

    Ya, it was, but it cracked me up lmao. It was a little funny comeback. If you find anymore blogs about Neo, send me the links. I'll have a field day talking to some of these bloggers.

    Oh god guys.
    This board reminded me to pop in on Neopets just for a while.

    9 and a 1/2 years. And my account is still as sad as I remember it. It's amazing.

    You don't even have to be a longtime player to notice these items.
