    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...

    Screw them indeed!

    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.
