Sorry for being a no-post

Recently, I haven't been posting.....anything, I've been on vacation! (which was very amazing!) So I got back on Pico after vacation and went to see one of my friends, and got some news I got pretty angry about. I really hate it when people are judged or labeled (labeled being called a name continuously because of one or more common factor in a person) by something like looks or wealth. The most known form of this is in Pico is when people call non ag users "noobs", but  a new 'label' has been issued. People are calling a certain type of style, my style, snooki's. Now, I don't take that lightly. Because, I know, that the title 'snooki' wasn't meant to be a good one. I have ABSOLUTELY nothing wrong with jersey shore, or snooki. It's the intention that the name has that ticks my ticker!! And for those of you who are confused on the style thing, I mean, the ninja suits, sunglasses, etc... here is a pic example


What people in Pico need to realize is that in some way, shape or form. Behind every avatar, there is a person. A person, who has feelings, and every word typed goes into a complex web of memories that, that person will not forget. and everyone word can trigger a reaction of reactions whether positive or negative, you have to have respect for people's emotions.





Every Pico has a heart and feelings. It shouldn't matter if someone dresses in Ag or if they dress in gummies, or if they have sunglasses on their eyes. IT'S JUST A WAY TO EXPRESS THEIR FEELINGS! It's not to symbolize a division between avatars. Its a way to meet people, who have same interest as you, a way to show, I AM [MAYA] THIS IS WHO I AM! To allow people to accept and enjoy your presence!



So all that I ask is whether someone looks like this...




Or





Or even this











Don't ever EVER EVER judge someone by their style. Hey! Style is just an accessory to your personality, and accessories can be added and subtracted to make or break an outfit to be just perfect.
Have a good summer all!

Re-post: A friendly reminder to never give out your password to anyone



Ameba Pico's support team will never contact you to ask for your password. This is an important message that needs to get out to players.

There have always been attempts by players to scam others out of their accounts - especially players who have many premium items.

There's a new scammer among us
This month a player named Pico Sυpport™ has popped up and is contacting many people under false pretences. "She" is claiming to be an Ameba official. Alert!: this person is not a member of Pico's support team. Do not send your password information to this person if you are contacted.

Ameba Pico says:
  • Change your password and ID frequently
  • DO NOT tell anyone your password and ID
  • DO NOT type in your password and ID in other applications
"Account information should be kept in the utmost secrecy, the Ameba Pico team will never ask for their passwords or account information." - Parent Friendly Guide: We have key safety tips for our players

Protect yourself
Many players with blogs are getting word out about this scammer. Chimikat, Lavi Shieru, the Pico Grammy Awards team, TLA Family, and the Sakura Sisters are a few who have posted on blogs or Facebook about it. Please do the same in your own way. You might want to consider warning those you know and care about. In fact, if you receive this letter, take a screen cap of it and send it to the real Pico Support at support@ameba.net.

People will always set their mind to scam your out of your account; they'll find new ways to be devious.

Scammers will use phony web sites, bogus Facebook accounts/pages and even approaching you in the game to make themselves look "official" and convincing.

Be aware.
