Oh Flounder, that's another easy one! This Little Duckie has never owned a computer, so he makes all of his art on his tablet...
Sure, it's a little slower than making it on a PC, and Duckie doesn't have a lot of free time, so his art may be a little basic...
But Duckie can participate in the weekly art challenge (and receive a nice participation prize!)
Here's how Duckie makes art on his tablet:
On the right hand side in the art Editor are the editing symbols.
To decorate a pumpkin, Duckie selected "Editor" on his tablet, and clicked "Add All" to load his Inventory.
Duckie chose his favourite scene and made it the background.
Duckie then chose his favourite pumpkin overlay, and used the + to make it full sized. Simples!
Duckie finally chose his favourite Pet to decorate his pumpkin with.
He used the + to make the Pet bigger and then the new red arrows at the bottom to move it where he wanted it.
Duckie typed in his title, saved his art to his home page, and entered it into the weekly art challenge, the same as normal.
Now he is patiently waiting for whatever wonderful participation prize he will receive this week...
Simples, Flounder! You can't actually edit in the Gallery. You can only edit it in your Editor.
What you need to do is:
1. Find your art in the Gallery, and click on the "Remove" button underneath your profile picture to remove it
2. Go back to your "My Pets" page and click on the blue paint pallet underneath the art you want to change
3. Make your changes to the art
4. Save your changed art
5. Go back to your "My Pets" page and resubmit it to the Gallery.
Flounder has been "liking" all of his favourite art in the PnF Group, but he didn't realise that his "likes" weren't the same as votes?
Bilby explains to Flounder that if he clicks on the image of the art he likes in the PnF Group, it will automatically take him to the Gallery, so he can "vote" on the art (as well as "liking" it in the PnF Group). Simples...
Ah Flounder, there's a trick to that, and I know the answer! Not everything comes in "Full Size"!
In your Inventory, you will see that some of your pumpkins will say "Full Size" but others might say "Size 10", "Size 7" or "Size 4".
To find out which pumpkins you can make bigger, you will need to visit the Swap Shop!
The Swap Shop is located in the Mall. It's the 4th item on the drop down list for the Mall. You will see that the Swap Shop has another drop down list, and "2016 Pumpkins" is one of the things on that list.
When you select Swap 2016 Pumpkins, the Swap Shop will show you in red which pumpkins you have enough of to make into a bigger size...
Happy upsizing Flounder!
Lavender is feeding other Pets the Skill Foods, but her own kitty is not being fed many of them...
Flounder explains that this is because lots of people have cats as their Greeter Pets (although he can't understand why?), and people may already have run out of the Skill Foods for cats before they get to Lavender's Page!
Flounder suggests that Lavender makes her kitty her Visitor Pet instead of her Greeter Pet, and adopts a dog or a cow for her Greeter Pet (the one that gets fed), because there are not as many Greeter dogs or cows on people's Pet Pages.
Flounder shows Lavender the "Edit" button at the top of her Pet Page, and tells Lavender to click on this and scroll down the page to see if she already has any other pets.
Lavender can then use the double arrow (switch around), moon (hibernate), sun (wake up), "Hi" (make into the Greeter Pet) and shield (make into the Visitor Pet) icons to change which of her pets greets and visits other pets!
Flounder thinks it might be fun to "ban" Holey Moley from commenting on his page for a joke?
The other NPC's are worried about what Flounder is thinking! "NO Flounder! You don't want to do that, because you can't just 'un-ban' Holey Moley yourself!"
It is a good idea to think it through before you ban someone from commenting on your page, because you will need Admin help to 'un-ban' them if you change your mind...
Oh Flounder! The words other pets use to communicate with you aren't in sounds, because you don't have any ears to hear sounds with (hehehe)!!!
Other pets can communicate with you by writing text messages to you in 1 of 3 possible places:
1. Underneath this picture in the "comments" section
2. At the bottom of this page underneath your Pet Family in the 2nd "comments" section
3. In the "message" box available when they send you a gift that appears in your "gifts received" or "app gifts" on your wish list
So Sir Trollelot explains:
1. There is no set time for the Jigsaw Game prizes to change!
2. The developers monitor how many Mystery Boxes are being opened
3. This helps them decide when it's time for a change
4. A moderator will always announce that they are going to change in the PnF Group, at least one day before they change
5. If you don't have everything you wanted, the prizes will be available for purchase in the Seasonal Shop, and anything that is already in the Seasonal Shop may be used in the Jigsaw Game again in the future!
Oh Flounder, there was an easier way to do this! As easy as 1,2,3!
Near the top of your page, next to "Gallery", is the "Visit" button. It provides you with the names of every Pet that shook your fins, and it loads them along the top of your page so you can visit them back. Just click on Visit then choose Guest Book and then "1 day" (or whatever period you want to see - I prefer "1 week" because not all of my friends can shake wings [paws] every day), Maximum of "1000" (so you don't miss anypet), Un-tick Show repeats and Shook their paws today
Now just click on the purple square with the maroon up arrow in it to put all of the Pets that shook your fins onto your tool bar! Simples!
Lavender only joined PnF a couple of days ago, so she missed the announcements for the Food Skills feature...
Flounder isn't the brightest star in the PnF sky, so he was chuffed when Lavender chose him to show her where to access the Food Skills feature in PnF!
Flounder directed Lavender to her My Art page, and showed her the "Free Food" icon, located below the profile pictures of recent fin shakers.
Lavender squealed with delight when she clicked on the icon found the list of her pets that could collect daily for free, either: edible foods, food images or a mixture of both edible and food images!
Flounder wants to know why he can't see somepet's page?
"What is going on? This is one of my besties?"
"I hope I haven't upset them or hurt their feelings?"
"What should I do?"
Oh Flounder, this probably isn't about you at all!
Maybe they have changed their PnF privacy settings and they haven't had time to "Add" you back?
Maybe one of their Pets has been playing with their keyboard?
If you can, you might like to Facebook message them and let them know that their PnF Page is "Skeezling" (blocking) you?
Flounder feels very small in the big deep ocean!
Flounder still feels old and ordinary, because he seems to be surrounded by suave new NPC's! Flounder still dislikes his 3 strange poses. Flounder still hates his (one word) name! But none of this seems to matter quite so much when he has friends around him...
cool - clear - crisp
