    I didn't use the whistle yet, and messed up my chance to get a 2nd pony. I thought I logged in right after the reset yesterday (around 2:10am CST), so I didn't pay attention to my login (I was busy) today until shortly after 2am (a few stinking minutes ago). Just to find out, I only have the whistle and no other carrot (which means I didn't login at all yesterday; I must have been thinking of the day before). ~ Oh well. ~ One phony pony is enough boloney for me. I guess. :pensive:

    Maybe they will extend it another day. It could happen.

    Ye but if you used the correct spelling it's not immediately obvious that it rhymes

    Bologna is the meat, but it's a balloon horse so Phoneybalogna wouldn't make much sense.

    Baloney is slang for something you don't believe, isn't it?
    "You say that's a real horse? That's baloney!"
    Phoneybaloney seems fitting for a fake horse.

    For maximum confusion, both the meat sausage and the slang term use both spellings - Bologna and Baloney, pronounced the same way. The slang was (most likely) derived from the sausage and spelled that way because Americans can't spell the phonetic spelling makes more sense, I guess.

    Can you guys stop triggering my pedantry D:

    I'm still trying to figure out which dessert could be appropriate for a balloon pony... I might create it only after I finished with my lovely Band Alpaca (name Minimallow).
    I was thinking on selling my second since I don't like having multiplies (even all the alpacas are one of each type: normal, Christmas, Handsome and Band) but then again... is it really a good pet? Is his slowness too much to handle and better just lvl it up without any lvl in mind or...?

    Bologna is the city where the Bolognese sauce was created, but that name doesn't mean "meat" or anything, it's just the name they gave to a specific type of sauce made of tomato and meat (that would been normally called "ragù", translation: "meat-based sauce")
    [Source: I live at 40km from Bologna - italians really make it hard with their cuisine, especially the ones in Emilia-Romagna :worried:]

    I've often wondered about Italians. I wonder how many of them are actually Spaniards. :smirk: ~ but don't let that grab your bones too quickly, because I often wonder the opposite about the Spaniards and think about how many of them are actually Italian. :smirk:

    ~ Don't ask me to explain my reasoning. lmao. :smirk:

    Not being italian makes it easy for me to not grab to my bones anything italian HVKggpG.png
    [As a story-fact: I got an italian super mad at me for breaking the spaghetti in half to ease the cooking - they look me weird when I ask a cappuccino after 12pm - and so on]
    We (all) do that with asians too, so confusing them is a natural part of being human, I guess

    To avoid going OOT, here's my screenshot of the pets not created. They were 5 by the start of this event, made 2 and now I'm at 4 again!

    That picture somehow captures the soulless eyes of the Balloon Pony, even though it's noodles...

    Would be nice if you could have got one on two different characters- collect one for one server and one for another, but nope ._.

    It's too late for this, but, you could've done that. If a character on the same (or other) server has a cumulative level greater than 30; they will get the carrot on login. ~ That said; we have to be careful not to log into other characters with a total of 30 or more, by accident. :/

    Actually nah, the carrots are tied to one character. I wrote an unnecessarily long post about it elsewhere.

    TL;DR the game automatically selects the first eligible character you login to at the start of the event as your "main character" and all carrots will land on that character regardless of who you log into first later on.

    I've been carelessly logging onto my real main since then lel. All the carrots are still falling on that alt whenever I decide to log onto him.

    And the GM's response that time didn't clear it up either! A part of me really thinks the NA staff might not be aware of the change in the login gift mechanics.

    I think I prefer the old method after all - the one where you manually talk to the NPC, who will clearly say "Would you like to select [Name] as the main character? Your other characters won't be able to receive gifts!"

    Or better yet, just let the daily gift fall onto whichever character logs in first for that day AND make them bank-transferable.
