Considering 75% of this thread is either directly or indirectly related to Neopets, I'd say this thread is now more on-topic than off. ;P

*pokepokepoke* The POINT isn't to BE "on-topic" now is it? :P:P I think this is the thread that defines off-topic, it should be made into a historical monument for all to see what "Off-topic" is all about. You have an off-topic board, it should be off-topic. :P

LOL, and you keep this up, Amarinda, then the thread will be off-topic again!

Am I seriously the only one who thinks off-topicness IS the point??

I suppose the profoundness of my thoughts is a bit too much for you guys.  :scholar:

Off-topic threads still have a topic. :P  They're just off-topic because they're not about KQIX or KQ.

If this thread turns into a mish-mash of random posts, it would be merged with the General Chat thread or Useless Conversation Thread, depending on how random the posts are. Those are the two threads designed to have no topic.  8)

Neil, that's ridiculous. :P No touchy my thread!!  **brandishes fishstick protectively**

There are lots of boards that don't have to do with KQ, this one is deceptively titled "Off-Topic," but I guess you mean "Other-Topics that don't have any other board." :P And on this and other boards, there are LOTS of threads that wander around aimlessly and don't get assimilated Borg-like into another thread. Then the whole thing wouldn't make any sense at all.

I think maybe you should now changed the title to "Day, Neopets, and Off-Topic" or something. Nooo, it now has 3 distinct topics!!  :o :o :o Assimilation City! ;P

BTW, I didn't really care that you changed the title, just thought it was funny. ;P

You might be confusing Off-Topic with the We're in Haven board.  The majority of threads in Off-Topic stay on topic, while in the Haven forum they do exactly what you're describing.  If you like, I can move this topic there and it can continue to change topics freely. :)

 :o How confusing. But, sure, move it if it makes more sense, that's fine. No shoving it in another topic, though, if you don't mind. :P I don't really get whey there is a Haven AND an Off-topic? Is it just a subtle difference then? :S

As said before: (I think)
Off-Topic = Sorta-Sane Off-topicness
We're in Haven! = Completely Insane Off-topicness
I guess you guys didn't notice.  The "craziness" from the Off Topic forums have moved to Haven.  ;P

Off Topic is now for topics that are just non-kq related.  Not necessarily all serious, but they are less "insane".  ;P  

Oh and Haven has a bunch more things like all the Woots & What The polls, contests, games, and more.

Haha, thanks for the clarification, Jafar!!  :suffer: That makes perfect sense, the difference between sanity and insanity.

OK, leave it here then, and we'll try to stay on the topic of Neopets.

Welcome back and congrats on your newbie pack, Jason! XD

Any time!
Anyways...
I have no idea what Neopets are/is. Is\are it/they anything like Tamogatchies? 'Cause I don't know what they are either. :P

Wait, I think I DO remember Neopets! :o
It was years ago, and I checked it out, but couldn't get into it. Not sure why...

I've heard the word 'neopet' somewhere before but don't really recall where and most certainly didn't know there was a site devoted to it. Anyway, all free time I can scrape atm goes into playing an RPG, or watching one of the many DVD-movies I procured lately. So there's absolutely no room/time for another thing right now. Even now I'm neglecting some things I used to do before I got hooked on that RPG game. :-\ And besides that, the Neopets-site just froze my browser. :-X

Oh man, I hate that. O.o Neopets is actually what made me switch from IE to Mozilla. :P Now I do most things through Moz and only have a few IE windows open for restocking, because IE is the only one I've found that works with the Windows' mouse snap-to feature. It's saves precious seconds when haggling for that rare item. ;P

Anyway, a stable browser is recommended. :)

Linux is stable, FireFox is stable when browsing other sites, so it has to be something Neopets-site tried to do but wasn't allowed to, methinks. IE for Linux is a no go, unless you have a working wine, which I do not. Restocking? Mouse snap-to feature ??? I'm completely lost there.

Fwee off-topic-y insanity thread-name-changing-and-board-moving-ness. I got addicted to neopets around 4th grade or so. I made everyone insane with my obsessive-ness. Then I couldn't get on as much because I was so busy. I have two main accounts, one where I'm the co-leader of a guild (but the leader's just as inactive as I am.) The other is the one I use for games and stuff. I also spent 560,000 np on a labray set :P
