Turtle points are the same as what other forums might call as "Karma"

The points mean absolutely nothing. It's just something to have fun with.

Also, it is possible to disable the Magic Turtles if you wish to do so.
Profile > Look and Layout Preferences > Turn Magic Turtle's off


If it says, "Sorry! You where to late another member has gotten the Turtle!", this means what is says.
Turtles are born, bred, and depending on the conditions of their environment, some become evil and others become good. Once they have matured into adult hood, they are released into the wild. They are running all over the forums all at the same time, in and out of threads, posts, forums, and function pages. So it's possible for two people to spot the same Turtle. So if you see one, then you'd better hurry and try to catch it before someone else does!

Happy Turtle Hunting!

Even if it says that someone else has gotten it before you,  you could still get points or lose points.

I've always been in the (-) when it came to turtle points...I somehow jumped into the (+) just recently. 

*hint*: Get dial up, the turtles are a lot slower











As is the rest of anything else you want to do  :_oops:

Hey 91, I looked at your stats :smack: no not that kind! Anyway, it shows your on the forum mostly later at night. I used to work night shift and would spend hours on this site and never see a turtle. :dunno:  I think they must be sleeping cause they're all around during the day. Try and catch some in the morning when they are out warming up their crawler gears. Here have a turtle point! :bud: See ya

Well I've heard reports from the stables that breeding is in a slump right now. I think you should wait for a better batch
