guys i'm confused
there's a foster who has her pets ufa
and she's applying for them too??
what?

UPDATE: I will be making applications for some of these pets, too! However, the pet goes to the best app. Period. Doesn't matter if it's mine or yours or your cousin Sally's. ;) To make it more fair, I'll be following the same rules for my app as you guys are.

WHAT? I've never heard of this before. This is really confusing.

Erm... maybe the owner wants to see if she can out-app some of the competition in a last ditch resort to attempt keeping some of the pets without actually taking them down maybe? Maybe she thinks if she can create something that is judged to be better, then she'll actually want to keep the pet anyway, but is still willing to let the pet go to someone who shows enough dedication to go beyond even what she does? That concept seems a bit... underhanded to me, though, but I don't know what the situation actually is, so whatever.
I've never seen this before either. o.0

Maybe for some last chance at inspiration for her pets, knowing that other people may be taking them home? Still dumb.

That's why I'm so confused.
Couldn't she just say oh i'm the best ok? ok.

I remember awhile back on Neopound (*cough* Years. Ago.) we had a little thread set up for applying for your own pets, some of which ended up turning into "Person A sends pet to Person B with instructions to not send it back until they have a petpage done for it." This, however... seems unreasonable.

I think my mind just exploded from how illogical this is.

Can I just say - anyone who applies for her pets is either an idiot or has way too much time to spend, since I can tell now that she won't adopt out the pets she's "applying" for.

And she's the one judging - hmm, I'm judging the applications of which I'm an applicant, I wonder who will win?!

-______-

Exactly why is she even doing this? If she wanted to apply for her pets then she could do so w/o putting them UFA (it's not uncommon that people apply for their pets to get re-inspired) - don't attempt to drag other people into it. Probably she thinks "oh if you're better than me, the original foster, then you can have my pets". She's pitting herself against the applicants to motivate them - is that what this is??





This is just... too stupid for words.

Yeah, I understand when two friends do that, Vicats. I mean, I wouldn't, but I understand.

This... seems completely different, and as morsael said, stupid.

So uh...

Who's judging? xD

It would be kind of hard to admit to yourself that you "lost" your own pet to someone who out-wrote, out-drew, and out-dedication'd you...


It would make sense to me if someone else was judging, and the owner wanted to get petpages, art, etc. completed.

...I'd never do this because I'd probably lose my pets |D;

But if she's judging, other applicants are pretty much screwed...

Wow, that's all I have to say.

I mean, if she wants to make applications for her own pets, make them, but done jerk everyone else around so you can get a crazy ego boost thinking that you are better than everyone else applying.

And "best app" is so subjective it's just crazy.

*bonks head on desk* Just... don't get it.

I'm genuinely intrigued if anyone would actually apply for her pets. If they do, they need medical help.


Are her pets "high value"? I know this seems a crude thing to ask, but if they are, then I can see why some people would be desperate enough to apply, even with a foster like that. :|

Two draiks, that's it.
The others aren't.

She'll probably apply for the two draiks.

Draiks are common as dirt; if someone has the skills to get a Draikt through an app, they have the means to get a Draik by trading (since they're so cheap atm) or the sense to find a more reasonable foster.

I seriously don't get any of this.

^ This made me LOL more than it should have. xD

If someone else is judging I kinda get it. But she's opening herself up to some stick isn't she? The PC is crazy enough, she's going to receive lots of abuse if her own apps are chosen. xD

These are just my biases. They help form a favorable impression on me. If you think that this is unfair, you are correct. But they're my pets, so I can afford it, right? ;)
^ this gives me the idea that she is also judging lol
