REFRESHING (F5) RULE – DIRECT FROM TNT-Issue: 219 | 9th day of Celebrating, Y7:
Some people say that you can get frozen from refreshing too much. For example, some avatars people say you can only get from refreshing and they say that you can get frozen from refreshing too much. Is that true? ~ (name deleted)
Just like many things in Neopets and life, there is a line. Let’s clarify.
– Hitting refresh repeatedly for a few minutes, allowing the page to load. Great
– Holding down F5 for 10-30 seconds at a time, checking for the avatar/challenger, then trying again if it has not been achieved. Still good.
– Holding down the F5 key for 20 minutes. Okay, but try to take a break for your mental sake and ours.
– Leaving your CAT on the F5 key while you make a sandwich. Not good.
– Leaving your CAT on the F5 key all night while you sleep. Bad.
– Using a program that refreshes for you at the same rate as a human. Frozen!
– Using Opera to open 100+ pages and hitting REFRESH ALL. VERY frozen.
Basically, anything that plays the site for you, and requires no effort on your part, is considered a BOT and will get you frozen. Even your CAT. This includes auto refresher functions in browsers or putting a weight on F5 to do things the old-fashioned way. If you don’t do any of that, you don’t have to worry.
