Hello my lovelies!

I looked all over the tags and can't find it, but I know there used to be a super helpful post on here with all kinds of tools for those of us stuck in the stone age and still using Firefox.

In particular, I am looking for a comment thread unfolder. I have recently replaced my old laptop and forgot to save what I used on there and am severely missing it. Any ideas on where that post of resources might be, or a thread unfolder for Firefox? Cheers!

I processed thirteen apps for the Neep tonight and I'm super excited about answering intros tomorrow!

I want the Neep to be all about embracing the fun and ridiculousness of quidditch and Scotland. I can say that! I love Scotland! But it's ridiculous sometimes! I've had fun with war games in the past but right now, there's so much darkness in the world that I'm ready for pretendy fun-times that don't feature lots of killing and dying. I'm happy to have politics and serious things in the game, but the Neep is a chance to have plot and competition in a more relaxed and less violent manner (well, okay, there are still bludgers). If you're looking for a little light-hearted fun, come join us!
