Carrots

Am I the only one who has never had a carrot before? (The game on HF, not the veggie!!!! )

I've been told you can steal them when the carrot bandit asks you if you want to, or you "find" them on the "top of the screen on a thread". I've been actively posting for awhile and I've never once "found" a carrot, let alone been asked if I want to steal any....

And I've also heard talk of a carrot locator, which I can't seem to make heads or tails of.... *munches on carrot like bugs bunny, thinking...*

Am I just crazy?

Yes. You are insane. Also, the moon is made of cream cheese, and whistles the national anthem on special occasions.

(Try checking your User CP - under "Edit Options, down the bottom of the page in "miscellaneous options" there's a "Play 'Catch the Carrot'" option. Do you have the YES radiobutton pushed? If not, there's your answer.)

'S OK. I'm still trying to figure out what the carrots are for once one has got them. I've figured out that one can send virtual carrot cake to other forum users; but if the carrots have any other use beyond that (and being stolen) I've yet to work it out. :-7

This forum, it has the baffling nature. Carrot games? Number-of-Posts requirements to participate in some stuff? Wahh, it's all too complicated! If I were Queen Of HF, I'd be sure to send out an email explaining all this stuff to every new member as they sign up. But sadly (?) I'm not, so I'll just have to make up my own answers instead. ))

I used to have more than triple the amount of carrots I have. They just seem to go :( And it never lets me steal them back.

Also, the whole gathering carrots thing does not work well with a trackpad :(

I find some days Im really lucky and will get the chance to gather them a few times. Other days that silly carrot bandit steals them left right and center.

You gather carrots and then go to the carrot kitchen and "purchase" goodies to send to people ...

What is a 'carrot locater'? I keep finding these but the screen doesn't do anything. it just sits there flashing at me and won't let me *do* anything with it. Am I doing something wrong?
