Whiskerwick was founded in early 2015 when I noticed an alarming lack of capitalists in the Petz Community. There are places for buying and selling petz, yes, but there wasn't a general petz forum where anyone could buy and sell as they please. And so Whiskerwick came to be.
The currency of Whiskerwick is called "bones," and you earn bones by being an active resident! Generally, every time you make a post here you earn 1 bones. The only exception to this is the Arcade, which is purely for fun.
Whiskerwick is designed in hopes that even people who cannot hex, breed, create graphics, whatever, can earn enough bones to buy even the priciest petz, just by being active members of the community (or doing really well at the Stock Market).
Another goal of Whiskerwick is to encourage all of us to get back into our games and regain something of the PC's yesteryear. For this reason, there are no freebie adoptions allowed in Whiskerwick, and we encourage members to think about the work they put into their petz when pricing and adopting them out.
I don't earn any bones when I post from my phone! What's going on here? Unfortunately, our money system doesn't work when you post while mobile. If I could fix it myself, I would, but it's an issue with Proboards.
My bank is giving me two different balances; what's the real one? Your bank displays your balance in two different places: on the top table, in large letters, and in your Recent Transactions list. There have been times where these numbers don't match up. If you experience this, the accurate number is the big, bold number at the top.
I need to send bones to someone; how do I do that? You send bones by going to the person's profile and clicking the "Send Donation" button. There's an option to leave a note, which might be helpful if the person is running a particularly booming breeding/adopting thread.
Someone sent me bones, but I don't see them anywhere. Are they added automatically? You have to accept someone's bones before they'll be added to your profile. Simply go to the Donations page to accept your donations.
I can't see my donations! What happened? This is an issue that sprang up in particular when someone rejected a donation. Their adblocker decided it didn't like our money plugin, so it blocked it entirely! Disable your adblocker for Whiskerwick and you should have your money features back.

Thor: I just realized that I have never accepted a donation before....... I'm.... I'm dumb.

Arie: Hey everyone! Not sure if this is happening to anyone else, but I have been getting ads on here that auto-redirect you to shady sites. If this happens to you, please report the ad to ProBoards!

cheshire: Hey, everyone. Hope you don't mind me lurking in the corner. Thought I'd drop back in for a bit, since I finally don't have anything important to do.
