[dʒɛɪaː] - verb

To make a regular Neopets account into an account suitable for a player under the age of thirteen -- that is, to remove the ability to Neomail, edit pages, and post on the Neoboards.

MER

MER

[] - noun

MER (or Maxter) is short for Maximum Total Expected Return. It's a set of Food Club bets with the highest TER for a given set of pirates and their profitability. Generally, betting Maxter sets in the long run should yield close to a Return on Investment of 2 (doubling your amount bet). For any particular round that is still in progress, the Maxter value may change depending on changes in pirate odds.

Example Usage:

"MER is a popular Food Club betting strategy with sets conveniently calculated by a computer."

Mirror Game

Mirror Game

['mɪɹə gɛɪm] - noun

A copy of one of the Neopets games, specially made to be displayed on another site. Some mirror games have the ability to send scores back to the Neopets site, but using this to send six scores per day for the same game is against the rules.

Example Usage:

"My friend thought she'd found a link to a new game. She got all excited, but it was just a mirror game version of Meerca Chase."

Category: Games


MM

MM

[ɛmɛm] - noun

Abbreviation for "Mud Mixture". A cheap Battledome item given out as a reward for completing Illusen's quests.

Example Usage:

"The real thing MM has going for it is affordability. Maybe use one for your first few weeks as a Battledomer?"

See Also: Mud Mixture , Illusen's Quests

Category: Battledome


TA

TA

[tiːɛɪ] - noun

Abbreviation for "Tiki Armour". A Battledome item that was given out as a reward for completing the Mystery Island Volcano plot.

Example Usage:

"The defensive ability of TA is nice, but at that kind of price it's not worth it."

See Also: Mystery Island Plot, Tiki Armour

Category: Battledome


TER

TER

[] - noun

TER is short for Total Expected Return (or Ratio), a probability-weighted average of possible outcomes on a set of Food Club bets (generally a set contains 10 bets, but can be any number of bets). The TER value is a quick way to gauge an estimated average expected number of units you can win for a set of bets, but it does not mean a particular set will actually win. Generally, betting sets with higher TER in the long run should yield more profit on average. The possible TER value ranges will differ each round based on pirate odds and combinations available.

Example Usage:

"A set of ten bets with TER of 11 is barely profitable."

Transfer

Transfer

['tɹænsfɜː] - verb, noun

(1) To send a Neopet to another player, using the system found behind the central door of the Neopian Pound.
(2) The act of sending a Neopet to another user in this way.
(3) The ability to send or receive a pet using the transfer system. Players are limited in the number of pet transfers they can start or accept per month (the number varies based on account age). A player who can send a maximum of three pets to others, and has already sent two this month, is said to have one transfer left.

Example Usage:

(1) "My daughter's quitting Neopets, so she decided to transfer her Hissi to me."
(2) "I wish he would hurry up and accept the transfer. It's been more than a day since I sent the pet!"
(3) "How many transfers do you have left this month? I've got the pet you were wanting to adopt, if you're ready to receive her."
