How to secure your Neopets.com Assets
So, in this guide, I am going to be going over many ways to secure MANY different kinds of things: Accounts, Pets, Items and Neocash items.
In order to successfully use this guide, all you will need is your brain, and the ability to effectively use it.
This guide was originally compiled about 2-3months ago, but was only up for a few days before I took it back down to redo parts. I have managed to procrastinate enough, that since I wrote it, a few things have changed, so this guide is going to be updated further to encompass that change.
...Let's Get Started!~
So, we are going to start off with accounts.
There are a few basic categories that you can break down the accounts you would like to secure.
The most basic is active, and inactive accounts.
A. Active Accounts
B. Inactive Accounts
The next thing we are going to talk about is how to secure items.
-If an account is active, but you don't want to take the risk of trying to secure it right away, write down all the info (email, email password, account password, pin, etc) and put it in your logs. Keep it in there and take note. Keep checking back and wait for it to go a little inactive so you can secure it a little easier.
-If you run into a premium account, where it is set to "stealth", log in and see if there are any NM's that have been sitting for awhile, and that should give you at least some sort of idea how active/inactive it is. If there are none, try sending them a random NM from another account and seeing if they read it/delete it/etc.
-Try to keep your shells last logged into under 100 days ago. If you have to update the terms and conditions, and then move things onto it too quickly, it could raise a red flag to TNT.
Three basic categories of items you might find yourself needing to secure include: autobought items, items from active accounts, and items from inactive accounts.
B. How to move them around
C. Autobought Items
The next section is all about pets. There are many different kinds of pets, but they all deserve essentially the same amount of attention.
-Most mid range battledome weapons are good choices for ets which you should get to move. Krawk and draik potions are also good choices of ets items.
-If you need something small, things like Baby Paint Brushes, Faerie Queen Doll, and Darigan/Royal Paint Brushes are good choices.
-Do not attempt to sell your secured items from an empty shell. It will bring too much unwanted attention, and you could end up getting iced and losing everything.
There are Unconverted, Converted, Battledome, and Real World/Real Name pets.
A. Unconverted Pets
B. Converted Pets
C. Battledome Pets
D. Real World/Real Name Pets
-When you are trying to secure pets, you have two options, securing the account it's on or moving it to a new account. If you choose to move it to a new account, it is highly recommended that you move it to a shell account, and you put no more than one pet on each shell. The reason being, you never know if TNT will try to take a pet back. If they do, then they will not only take the pet from the account, but they will freeze the whole account. So it is advised that you don't keep more than 1 pet per account, and you don't keep valuables other than the pet on the account.
-When you go to move a pet, you have two options, pounding a pet, or transferring. Make sure that you always have enough NPs on the account you are transferring to, so that you are actually able to adopt the pet. You don't want to have the pet sit in the middle of a transfer for too long, so make sure you are prepared.
-Never send neocash from an active account to your main account, or an account that you care about. There is always the chance that TNT will notice and ice it all.
-You NEED a gift box in order to send each neocash item. So when you go to send, keep an eye out for how many gift boxes the account has. If you need to get a neocash card in order to gather gift boxes to use yourself...that's what you have gotta do.
