I've been playing Neopets about two months, (and lurking here,) and I
keep reading about people's accounts being frozen. It sounds like it is
really common, even if people are innocent. I have the summer off, and
have been playing a lot, so as I accumulate points, etc., I'm getting
nervous about being accused of something I didn't do.

Anyway, I just went to try the mystery picture, which I usually ignore
because it is so vague. I actually thought I recognized the picture, but
it said the contest was over. So, I clicked on the answer at the bottom
to see what it was. I got a pop-up that said something like "You little
cheater, you have been reported to the Neopets team!" Now I'm concerned.
I wasn't trying to cheat; the contest was over, and I was curious to see
what it was. (That's why they put the previous answers there, right?) If
they are really quick to freeze accounts, is that going to happen to me?
Should I send an e-mail to let them know what happened?

I'm going to be really upset if this causes a problem. I've been
addicted to the game all summer, but I really couldn't bear to start
over! The initial steps of trying to get enough points to make points
would be tedious now that I'm tired of playing the games I used to get
started. Plus, I'm starting grad school in the fall, and wont have time.
(I sure hope no professors want to ask how I spent my summer! ;)

That is just Neopet's idea of a joke. I got that once and it worried me too
and then I realized they couldn't possibly be serious.

Wow, that surely is NOT amusing to me! The message didn't even have a
little smiley. Normally, I would think that something so silly was a
joke, but I've been browsing Neopets sites and groups, and keep reading
horror stories about people being innocently frozen.

Thanks for the replies,
