Am I the only person who hates when people get so gushy and over the top in applications? It stinks of desperation. 'I have been up for hours and have only eaten cereal with no bathroom breaks because ___ is just so gorgeous and captivating and I open their pet lookup every day to stare at them!' And people who buy items for pets before they have them...I feel like I'm the only person who can't drop 500k on HTS items for a pet I may not even get, and I don't really think it shows dedication. More foolhardyness..less money to spend on pets you have and are supposed to already love.

I mean if you want to do that, that's cool :) I'm not really knocking it, if that's your choice - but I don't like that it's almost the standard. It feels like I'm forced to go out and buy all this stuff and possibly get my hopes crushed, then also have to try selling off these items.

I kind of hate that people will overlook a bad customization for an awesome character as well..I feel customization is kind of more important, since it's how your pet makes their first impression. It seems kind of lacking if you make this awesome character, but you don't even try to reflect it with wearables. I know, UC pets are the holy grail and we should all go back to those days, but customization is here to stay..it's annoying to see a super developed character and a couple of Advent Calendar trinkets that don't relate at all chucked on the pet.

Sigh. I'm high-strung waiting on an app decision and I'm bitter because I don't think I'll get the pet :(

I finally finished my application for Uxua, the Faerie Uni. I spent soooo much time on it. It's my first "real" application that I've ever done (before, I always did Neomail apps. xD) http://www.neopets.com/~sinqe What do you guys think? I already sent it in, so critiques are probably useless, but do you like it?

Hi! I'm a bit of an anti-social Neopian so I'm not a fan of 'app chat' boards (well, the boards in general actually :p), but I'm really hoping for some feedback and happy that I have some place on LJ to go.

I'm applying for Qails the Royal Boy Gelert. The deadline is December 31st. I've already ran my idea past his current owner (you'll see why, it's..unusual) and I've turned in the link to my app already - it was pretty much done a week ago, I've only been making small changes and I'm sure she'll go over all of them when the due date comes anyway.

I prefer to do it this way rather than wait until last minute to submit, because...Christmas / New Years is a mess of drunken revelry and I won't be in any fit state to remember ahahaha. I'm worried she'd think I rushed it because I ~submitted early~ but I'd rather take my chances with that, and I'll neomail her a few days before to check she hasn't lost my link. Does that sound right to you guys, or am I doing a huge breach of app etiquette? It was fine for my previous sucessful app (I got Zrulon! Go hug my snotty bb~)

So would any of you like to read over my app for Qai and tell me what you think? ^^ Mostly for the content, but I'd also like confirmation that my layout works. I am a Mac user (so I don't have access to IE, and even FF for Mac sometimes has rendering quirks), plus I have a massive screen but I do try to use 1024x768 as a target.

(also, since some of you are familiar with the boards...have you seen what the competition for Qails is like? I tried Google, but it brings up old apps from when he was UFA earlier this year and I don't know which are old ones and which are up against me now, plus it's not always good at crawling Neo anyway)

Hey guys ^^
I'm Belle, and I'm applying for a faerie gnorbu (MAJOR WIP) and a mara ixi (EVEN MORE MAJOR WIP) xD
Fae gnorbu: www.neopets.com/~Skipolas
Mara ixi: www.neopets.com/~Jaqules
I made the layouts myself and coded them with Neoextreme's blog coder (SO helpful)
They're obviously not anywhere near finished, heck, all that I have is the layouts- but what do you think of the layouts? That is my question for you ^^
I can also take a layout request or two if you guys are in need of a custom one for your apps ^^
Oh, and I applied for a fire uni that was on a UFQA board (www.neopets.com/~florabea) but the owner never responded to any of my mails (don't you hate that? D:<)

Yup, I think that's about it- i'm so pumped that this community was made!
Go peophin! ;D

*Belle

Just generally, as a way to "break the ice" sort of thing, I have a few questions for all of you!

When making an app, what do you usually include?
For those of you who aren't artists, roleplayers, or writers, what do you put into your app to make it extra amazing?
Do you make your own css, or use a premade?
And if any of you have won a pet through a neomail app, what did you say to make yourself stand out against the petpage apps?

I guess the most important question...
WHO ARE YOU ALL APPLYING FOR?? :D


~~~~~~

I won a Grey Koi through a neomail app once. :)
But I don't remember what I said, exactly. Haha. It was a while back.

And normally, when I make apps, I include artwork and a little story. I don't roleplay, though. It's not my cup of tea. =/

And as for who I'm applying for... RaynaAnn the Usuki Girl Usul, and Uxua the Faerie Uni.
I was GOING to apply for Rosalene, the UC Royal Cybunny, but I couldn't get inspired enough.

Community will be fully up and running within a couple days.

I still have to figure out the CSS and all of that.

But feel free to join and post right away if you feel like. The CSS will just be pretty sloppy right now. xD
