Sometimes I want to monitor most of my accounts from afar, as in from one account on one IP.
Maybe I'm paranoid, but is it possible for TNT to log exactly whose pages I visit, how many times I refresh on that page, and then take action based on those?
For example, I suddenly look at some shell account's userlookup. Next moment, the pet on that shell is transferred to the account I am currently on. Does that set off any alarms?
Or how about if i'm trying to cache the same pet on multiple devices at once while being on a different account?
Going to sleep now, but hoping someone can answer this for me when I check it tomorrow

I mostly want to say no, but my main has been frozen a couple times for suspicious activity because I looked at stuff that was either being hacked, just hacked or about to hack. (hack meaning steal)
I would like to know this too!
EDIT: Kylae, you got in under my nose.
I wouldn't say it's impossible for them to do this, but for them to be logging every page that every user visits on every account everyday, they'd need some huge ass servers to maintain that amount of logs xD
They seem to know when an account has been refreshing for random events and such, and I've also heard of them looking into things like your SW searches when it turns out you've been using the SW method to transfer illegit goods -- with the former though, they could just be going by an account's total page views as opposed to logging exactly what pages they're viewing though.
I'd really just avoid looking at shells containing pets you plan to transfer, at least with the account you want them on. Minimize links and such.
I think it's more of the fact that TNT notices when you search for an account that is about to have illegitamate activities done on it. Like for example (adding on to what Kylae said): If you look at an account 5 minutes before it's looted than self-iced, that might draw some attention. Usually it's just looked over because there is always a random chance you somehow went to that account (and TNT is also lazy) so nothing happens. If you're going to check in on your pound transfers, to see if you got them, I would highly suggest searching the account on worthless shells not something you are going to wanna keep
Oooo Thank you for the responses guys . I guess I'll have to be even more cautious from now on. Really don't want to lose all mi stuff :c
I had been wondering about this too! Good to know thanks guys!
I think they do monitor this, or alteast log it. IP's web crawl activity. One of the reasons why we added the anonymous redirect to neopets pages from ck.
I think they only log this, and if an account is deemed suspicious they will look into it and see their activity. How else would they be able to catche web crawlers and auto refreshers?
I think no
I'm paranoid, so I also never look at my main from any compromised accounts and vice versa It's nice to have a few spare "legit" mains (as in never done any cheating on them directly) to work as an intermediary. But I'm also insanely paranoid.
