stolen carrots

Can someone explain to me about the carrot thing? I keep getting the messages that someone stole a carrot from me, I didn't know I had any carrots. Is there a place to find the rules or the game?

The carrot game was a very old game that was created by our original admin. There used to be carrots that dropped and you had a basket to catch them with but you had to be careful because the carrot bandit could steal them and also on occasion a member would have a pop-up that gave them the option to steal someones carrots (when the user was not logged in). Sometimes you would get lucky and steal one and other times not so much. But when some of the members found work arounds so that they could build up their stash and no one could steal them as long as they remained logged in and had the screen open on their computers - they turned the game off.

Oh. I always wondered why I had no carrots. Too bad.

ETA: "But when some of the members found work arounds so that they could build up their stash and no one could steal them as long as they remained logged in and had the screen open on their computers - they turned the game off." @farmpony84 , I just noticed that you have over 400 carrots...

At some point you could turn off the game, so after I got like 1 or 2 carrots I turned it off so no one could steal my carrots any more!

You can still play the carrot game but only on the Classic version. I had a bunch of carrots at one time and then decided to see how long it would take for them all to disappear. Not long! LOL
