Okay, I see that a lot of people don't seem to know what certain words mean in our Petz world. So now I'm composing a list, to list them all, because I'm getting a little tired of hearing people ask what "meez", "tamsin", and, in our case, "corrupted thread" are Okay, here we go.

Brexing is making (minor) changes to a bred .pet file=).Some see hexing eyelid or eyecolor as brexing, for example. I would show you a picture of a brexed pet I adopted a couple years back, but I can't seem to find any...
Ok, I read the list, and I'm still confused about something...how does MPA differ from regular adoptions?
I always understood it to mean adopting out personal pets that you may have had a while but don't play with as much. Normally when you feel the need to thin out your crew members a bit. I have seen people refer to regular adoption threads as MPAs as well just to confuse things but it's normally for when you're having a clear out rather than breeding specifically to adopt out.

Yeah, MPA is either you own petz, or petz you've adopted from someone else that you no longer want, but had for some time. So you'll see in people's rules when adopting petz out 'Don't MPA, send back'. So, if no longer wanted, don't re-adopt the pet out (MPA), give it back to the original person you adopted it from.
inkpaw: just joined, hi everyone! c: it's really cool to see the petz community still strong here
