How to Get Rid of Ads on Fantage (Nonmembers)


Update 8/11/14: This no longer works. When the ad loads, the screen becomes the blue Fantage loading screen and you can’t see anything. You either have to disable AdBlock and watch the ad, or keep AdBlock and refresh the page. Since the ad is only like 30 seconds, help Fantage by disabling AdBlock on their domain. It makes nearly no difference to you, but I’m sure it gives them a lot of money!

I’ve been wanting to post this ever since the Cosmic Bingo got released, since I heard many complaints from Nonmembers about the ads getting in the way. So here it is!

A while ago, Fantage added yet another privilege for Members: no ads

Correction: Premium Members and smart Nonmembers get no ads 😉 Here’s how.

Double Level Glitch


This has been fixed.

I was on Facebook, and I saw several people posting pictures of their ID Fones with level 5000+, and I thought that was a bit strange, because the highest level is under 4000 right now, in the Hall of Fame.

If you look at your own ID Fone, your level will be normal. But, if your friends look at your ID Fone through their Buddies List, your level shows as doubled!

The ID Fone on the left is how my buddies will see my ID Fone, and the one on the right is how I see my ID Fone.

DoubleLevel

I just thought this was pretty interesting, and you guys wanted me to post random Fantage things as well! 🙂

✦ XAT Search ✦


Last updated by MooMoo on 8/16/13: added ‘Also, if someone reports to you…’

This link is EXTREMELY useful to XAT owners who want to catch people saying bad things on their chat:

http://xat.com/web_gear/chat/search.php

You can type any word or phrase into that search box. If ANYONE from ANY chat box said that word/phrase, it will show up in the search results!

Also, if someone reports to you that there was a cusser, you can verify that by searching it on the site.

Note that Private Chats, Private Messages, and Member Only chats are not searchable.

Have fun!

Prevent Getting Scammed


If you go to my SCAMMERS! page, you will see how many sad stories there are in the comments of people getting scammed. There is really nothing you can do once you get scammed, besides pleading with Fantage and asking your friends to do the same on your behalf (which usually doesn’t work unless you have a LOT of friends).

So instead of telling you what to do AFTER you get scammed, let’s talk about what to do BEFORE. In other words, how to prevent it from happening in the first place.

1. Don’t Double Trade

How to Make Your Text Show


Last updated by MooMoo on 3/22/14: added green sticky note

This method is no longer necessary, as Fantage has added the red text update (click here to learn more). We’ll keep this page here in case anyone wants to know how things were before the update!

So I’m pretty sure EVERYONE has come across this problem one time or another on Fantage, but we have never even addressed the problem!

Since I can’t take it anymore(Casey), I will tell you…

HOW TO MAKE YOUR TEXT SHOW

What I mean is, have you ever had the problem that you are chatting with someone, and your text never shows, and it gets really fustrating because that person doesn’t know what your saying? Well, I will tell you HOW you KNOW your text will show.

Ever see people on Fantage say things like this?

annual pass

Well apparently, if you say specific words capitalized, like SHOES and FRIEND, they will automatically un-capitalize and turn to lowercase letters, shoeS and friend. If it does do this, you KNOW your text will show to other people! If it doesn’t, your text will not show and you will have to change the spelling of your words!

For example,

The one on the LEFT will NOT show, the one on the RIGHT WILL show!

cows

Now you don’t ever have to worry about your words “not showing” to other people! Just use this simple trick!

~~~~~

I just realized why Fantage automatically uncapitalizes those  testing words like grape, shoes, hope, shirt, shope, hello, etc. It’s because all of them have a bad word hidden inside of them.

I don’t want to show such words on my blog, but I need to prove a point here, so if you are mature enough not to take these words offensively and/or abuse them, you may reveal the hidden text below by highlighting it.

gRAPE, sHOEs, HOpESHIrT, sHOpE, HELLo

If you were to capitalize the words like the ones above, you could basically say a bad word without getting caught, because grape, shoes, and the rest are definitely not bad words x)

So, to solve this, Fantage must have taken all those words and uncapitalized them by default when saying it on Fantage. This way, no matter how you capitalized the word, it would show up as lower case anyway.

That means that if your testing word isn’t uncapitalized automatically, the rest of your text won’t show either, so Fantage doesn’t bother to uncapitalize it.

You could technically take any word that has a bad word hidden inside of it and use it as a testing word. Cool, huh?

Hope this clarified some things!

Another Scam


Update 6/7/13: ANOTHER email about the SAME THING. This time, from fantageprizes@gmail.com. DO NOT TRUST ANY OF THE EMAILS I HAVE LISTED IN THIS POST. DO NOT GIVE THEM YOUR ACCOUNT.

Update 6/5/13: I just got the same exact email under another address; clearly they had to create a new one because everyone knew they were liars. Their mistake was sending it to me again -_- The email is free4fantagestuff@gmail.com. Although their email this time seemed a lot more convincing, DO NOT tell them your account info!!!

~~~~~

Some of you may have gotten an email from freefantage1000@gmail.com, about “free” items. Here is a screenshot:

Scam

I gave them a newbie account. This is what I replied:

Well ok. I seriously doubt you are legit, because this email isn’t actually from Fantage, so I am gonna give you a fake account. If I don’t receive the items, then I’m gonna warn everyone about you on my blog and you won’t get a single Fantage account from this again.
User: *Hidden*
Pass: *Hidden*
I want blonde bb hair, prom hair, and 5,000 ecoins. I prefer if the items are coined.
Thanks, and again, if this is a scam, you will regret it.

So yeah, you can guess what happened. I didn’t get my items, nor did I expect to get my items.

If you received this email, DO NOT respond your account information. I don’t know how many people they have tricked so far, but let’s make sure they don’t trick any more.

This is yet another example of why you should think before giving away private information on the internet to too-good-to-be-true deals. (Click here for the Epic Free Prizes Scam post, if you haven’t read it already)

Once again, you can reblog this if you like, to spread the word.

Epic Free Prizes


I’ve posted about this. Pinkstarbritney has posted about this. At least 10 people have reblogged each of our posts. And yet, people STILL don’t get it.

THIS WEBSITE DOES NOT WORK. IT IS A SCAM.

If other people said that it works, then they are either lying to you, or they were tricked.

Yes, this looks pretty convincing, doesn’t it?

 

And this?

And this?

And this?

 

A lot of people were tricked by all of this. Even me…! In fact, I was just about to post this guy’s video on this blog, because that is where I found out about the supposed “survey bypass”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10piAktYsrY

Either he got tricked too, or he is an employee that is trying to save “EpicFreePrizes” from the trashcan after everyone discovered that the entire thing was a scam.

I have to admit that it got everyone fooled.

But, the most important thing is this:

 

After seeing it, basically EVERYONE got all excited and thought they were going to get their prize. They didn’t even bother to wait 48 hours before telling the whole world.

Well, thankfully, I did.

The “Status” bar loads forever. You will never get your prize. I have waited at least a week now. I think that is enough proof.

You can even use logic to prove it to yourself if you still don’t believe me (in which case you would be a stubborn fool). Why would anyone in this world be homeless and/or poor if they could get money from this website at practically no cost? If it sounds too good to be true, then it most likely is not true.

If you were tricked and have already sent your referral code to everyone you know, please fix your mistake by telling them to spread the word about this post. I would hate for that fraudulent site to get money by tricking people. I bet anything that the “surveys” on their site pays EpicFreePrizes whenever people click on them.

They are getting money from tricking people all over the world. Help to stop this. Spread the word.

Hate this website for wasting your precious time? Wish you could punch the creators in the face? Let out your anger by spamming their Facebook page. I did. 😈

Free Stuff!!


UPDATE: You can get everything BUT the 4 costumes and 4 outfits at Le Shop and Stellar Salon. Fantage just secretly put them there without announcing it xP Thanks pinkstarbritney!!

Want all these never-released 5 hairdo’s, 5 tops, 1 bottom, 4 boy and girl costumes, 4 outfits, and 4 boards for FREE??

Free1

These are NOT recolors or edits, they are actual clothes that everyone can get, if they know the cheat.

Instructions are below…

1. Make a new account. Click here to be directed to the New User page.

UPDATE: Make a boy account, and you will get boards!

2. Keep on clicking refresh until you see an avatar that you like.

 Free2

3. If you remember the old “Welcoming Video”, then you’ll notice that Fantage has updated it! M and Peabody will greet you. Peabody will then go to Le Shop with you, where you will get a FREE outfit!! (Boys will get boards)

Free3

4. You will then receive a FREE costume; you can choose which one!!

Free4

5. That’s not all! Log in your newbie for the next 3 days and get MORE free stuff!

Free5

6. If you are a member, buy Cityscape Board from the Board Shop with STARS.

7. Put the Cityscape Board up for trade. Use your newbie account to offer both the costume and the outfit. Yay, now those items are yours! (If you aren’t a member, either ask a member friend to help you, or try and find the pass to the Members/Rares page)

Why this board?? Well, both the costume and outfit combined is worth 3,400 stars. After testing things out, you need to post something that is at least 2,800 for it to work. Anything lower won’t be enough. Anything higher is a waste of stars.

UPDATE: Whether you are a girl or a boy, you can still transfer the boy board prizes! Just put up something that is worth at least 1,400 stars (I tested that number), and offer the boy board. Your posted item must be a board, because that is the only thing you can trade with boys. You obviously can’t give a boy a dress LOL.

7. You should hurry, I don’t know how long this will last. Remember the free Castle Crown Hair and Board from a year ago, where you had to log into the German/French server? That didn’t last long. Click here if you don’t know what I’m talking about.

8. Make sure you don’t tell this to anyone. Just think about it. If someone doesn’t know how to get these items, then they will think it’s SUPER rare right? Then you can laugh evilly and not tell them the cheat xD

UPDATE: Trade n Sell is closed now, and scamming is no longer possible. However, that doesn’t mean the shame of the people who have scammed should be forgotten. They gave away their trust for nothing–the items they scammed most likely will be sold at Vintage Gold anyway. This page serves as a reminder of their foolishness.

Scammer. What is a scammer? Webster’s dictionary would define a scam  as a “fraudulent or deceptive act or operation.”

Well that didn’t clear anything up. Anyway, a scammer is a person who has deceived another person into giving something up and not giving anything in return. It is kind of like they “stole” an item, using just their wits, and their decisive plan. On Fantage, for example, scamming a person would be doing a double trade. A “double trade” in Fantage terminology is when one person wants to trade an ecoin item for another person’s star item. So they each post their item, and offer random worthless stuff to each other’s item, and they both accept. If you were to be scammed by double trade, you would accept the trade from the scammer, but the scammer won’t accept the trade from you, and they would run off into the sunset happily.

Oh, and that is bad. Even if the happy scammer runs off into the sunset happily, and guilt won’t even come across their heartless souls, they just did a bad deed. Once their heart is weighed by the feather of truth, they will be sent to the Fields of Punishment to live down the bad deed they have done and be deemed eternal punishment!

Well that is an exaggeration, but you get the point.

Getting A Membership By Yourself!


Last updated by Angela on 10/11/12: created post

Do you want a Fantage membership or ecoins but your parents always say no? Well now, I’m going to show you how to get some-with your own money. If you have no money, you’re out of luck.

First go to Fantage.com and click Membership or Ecoins in the corner of the screen.

image

Then, select the things you want to buy.

image

Then click checkout. On the next page, you must login to your Fantage account.

image

Then click money/ check order. You must click that one.

image

Next click I agree continue. Print out the paper by pressing print.

image

Then get a check or your own money to pay; you don’t have to ask your parents.

money2

Put it along with the paper you printed in the envelope. Label it with the address it says on the paper in the middle of the envelope, and your name and address in the left corner at the top.

image

Then put a stamp in the upper right corner. Mail it by putting it in your mailbox and putting the red flag up or send it at the post office. Then in a few days, you get your stuff!

This is a good way for you to get your own ecoins or membership, and don’t worry, its legal. Thanks and I hope this helped, cause this is what I do!

Pets in Fashion Shows!


(Ok, maybe I’m just a bit slow, but I JUST figured this out… xP )

When playing fashion shows, you get bonuses for bringing your pet with you on to the stage. Since I see only members doing this, I thought that nonmembers aren’t able to get pet bonuses.

EVERYONE CAN GET PET BONUSES IF THEY HAVE A PET!! 😀

Yes, this includes the nonmember pets Jimbo and Mumbo!

1. Go to Top Model’s and join a fashion show

2. When a theme is chosen, go to your inventory and dress. Do NOT close your inventory yet

3. Click on the PETS tab all the way to the right. *It is partially hidden during the final round*

4. Choose any pet you want!

The pet you choose must match the theme! And, in the final round, it must be the same pet that is displayed!

So, just choosing any random pet that doesn’t match the theme won’t get you any points.

For example: the theme for this round was orange/formal

I brought my Jimbo pet out (it’s orange), and got some bonus pet points!

Also, try and match the pet that is displayed during the final round

Moonstone Gems!!


(Yes, I will still post once in a while 🙂 )

Guess what? Today, I got these items:

Anyone wanna take a guess for how much I paid for them?

7,200 ecoins (1,800 ecoins per item)

Now, considering how super rare and awesome-looking each of these items are, that was pretty cheap! Just look at the Limited Item cart stuff from this event. A pair of earings cost 1000 ecoins!!! O_O

My point is, if you have 1,800 ecoins, you should definitely spend them on 3 Moonstone gems and use them at Orion’s Rare finds.

1. Go buy 3 Moonstone gems at the Wizard’s Domain. Each Moonstone gem costs 600 ecoins, so 3 costs 1800.

 

2. Go into Orion’s Rare finds and click on Orion or the Orb

 

3. Drag your 3 ECOIN Moonstone gems to the orb and click activate. You must have exactly 3 to activate it.

4. You will get an item with a rarity of at least 50.

Can nonmembers do this?

Well of course! I just did! As long as you have enough ecoins, you can do this.

Why can’t I just earn Moonstone gems from games instead of using so many ecoins??

Nonmembers: Only these 4 combos work for nonmembers

So, if you have 3 Moonstone gems from GAMES, it wouldn’t work anyway. That is why you have to use ECOIN gems. Sigh.

Click here for more info (nonmembers)

Members: Yes, you can just earn 3 Moonstone gems from games. Keep in mind that once your membership expires, these items will disappear. Which is why ECOINS are SO MUCH BETTER than membership!!!

How to Fly Anywhere


Last updated by MooMoo on 11/24/13: replaced all content with new video

I’ve made a short 2-minute video to replace the confusing steps on this page. Watch below!

New Pet!


Did you know that Nonmembers can get pets? You can’t buy the egg at the pet store (since they’re all locked), you have to buy a super expensive pet code with ecoins…

Pet Codes

Pet codes are more expensive because you don’t have to wait as long for them to hatch, and they’re the only way nonmembers can get them. Make sure you buy the cheapest one (the 1 hour one). Waiting half an hour less really isn’t worth ecoins. You can buy them at Pet Town or in your Barn!

If you do have ecoins that you are willing to spend, buy a pet! I STRONGLY recommend the Rocki pet () from the Cosmos family, because:

1. It’s the cheapest pet that’s able to walk outside

*The Pebble family cannot be brought outside, so don’t waste your money on them!

2. You get a super awesome BOARD from the Pet-Locked prizes! All the other Cosmos get accessories… I don’t really care for accessories, but that’s just me 😉

Now, for the advantages of getting a pet:

1. You level up immediately after you buy and hatch that pet.

2. You can FINALLY stop ignoring those tempting (maybe not…) pet treats lying all over the place

3. You can level up your Pet Treat Medal, and finally level up faster (REALLY faster)

4. Bonuses in the Fashion Show!

5. Makes you look like a Member (mehehe…)

And now, it’s even easier to get ecoins. I suggest you save up 1,200 ecoins for a Rocki pet!

I’m starting to look like a member… :mrgreen: I bet that if all the members lost their membership right now, I’d look even richer than them… That’s why ecoins are a million times better than membership, they NEVER expire!!! Get ecoins, NOT membership!

How to Lock Your Barn


Last updated by MooMoo on 4/15/12: created post

This will some make people VERY angry… but it’s actually pretty funny… This is the trick to lock someone into your barn. They will only be able to exit by using the map, or logging off. (However, some people can’t seem to figure that out…)

First make sure your house is open to everyone, by going to your house, clicking on the Home Options, and checking “Everyone”

 

1. Go to a server with a LOT of people… if you want to annoy a LOT of people

2. Say things that will trick people into going into your barn, such as…

EVERYONE COME TO MY BARN FOR AN AWESOME PRIZE!!

(Trust me… at least 10 people will come)

3. Keep on saying this a couple more times, as you wait for your barn to fill up with your victims 😉

4. Go to your house, but do NOT enter your barn yet. Go to House Settings again, and click on “Nobody”. They are now locked in!

 

5. Annoy your victims by going into your barn, as you listen to them scream “Let me out!” and get mad at you :mrgreen:

The only way to get out is by using the map or logging off. Have fun!

Host on the Model Stage!


This is absolutely the most awesome cheat ever: How to get on the stage while being the HOST, at Top Models Inc.!!

1. Host a Fashion Show. Starting the show isn’t necessary for this cheat, so nobody needs to join for this to work.

2. Click the area where my mouse is pointing. (Nothing will happen)

3. Enlarge the screen.

4. Click that same area again. YOU ARE ON THE STAGE!!! (If this doesn’t work, make the screen small again then click on the stage)

To go back, switch back to small screen, go to the other side of the stage, and repeat the process:

1. Click the area where my mouse is pointing. (Nothing will happen)

2. Enlarge the screen.

3. Click the host area again, and you are back! (This may take a couple of tries)

Amaze the other people there! Have fun!

**You can use the second set of instructions to get into the host area, while being a model; something even more jaw-dropping!!!

Flying Cheat #1


This cheat is EXTREMELY easy, because it does not include pressing Tab, or going to the Creature Arena, or going to the inventory, like the other flying cheat does.

I will use the Castle as an example, but you can try doing this anywhere else.

1. Go to the Castle.

2. Notice where my mouse is pointing at: the right yellow moving arrow. Click and HOLD; do not let go until…

3. … you get to this point, next to the last lamppost. Usually, you cannot go to this area, unless you use the “Click & Hold the Yellow Arrow” trick. All you have to do now, is go up and…

FLY!

Star Cafe Window Trick


Want to be able to do this?

A lot of sites tell you how, but their instructions are very confusing. Follow these easy steps instead:

1. Go to this exact spot, where my mouse is pointing (this is at the Star Cafe)

2. Click here, where my mouse is pointing. (Nothing will happen)

3. Enlarge the screen, by clicking where my mouse is pointing.

4. Click the same spot as step 2. (Again, nothing will hapen)

5. Make the screen small again, by clicking where my mouse is pointing.

6. Click that spot in the wall again. This time, you will disappear behind the wall!

8. Now, just click behind the window. Amaze your friends!

*To get out of this amazing position, you have to click on the exit door. You can’t talk either, because the window sill blocks the speech bubble.

A Quick Way to Earn Starz


Stickers can be traded in for unlimited starz! Here are the ways that you can earn stickers:

1. Attend every party! Not all of them give out free stickers, but might at well try!

   

2. If you HOST a classroom at the Fantage School, you automatically get 10 free stickers!

*If you are a Non-Member, do NOT give stickers away to people! Even though it says “Success! You have earned 10 points for the Sticker Fanatic”, Non-Members do NOT level up from this medal, because it is hidden (notice how it is grey, not colored).

*On Tuesdays and Saturdays, and sometimes Thursdays, (see the schedule below), you can go to Lucky Bob’s (located in the Forest) and trade all your useless stickers in for starz! Regular stickers can be traded in for up to 40 starz on the wheel, and rare stickers can be traded in for up to 200!

Thats One Crazy Monkey…


Here’s a funny little trick:

1. Open your Instant Messager by clicking on this button that is located next to the CHAT bar:

2. This is the chat box. If you want, you can Instant Message with a friend too, and show off this trick. (Click where the red arrow is pointing at to Instant Message with a friend)

3. Type in Thats One Crazy Monkey, as shown below, EXACTLY as it appears. (Including the capitals; notice how it is Thats, not That’s)

4. Type Enter, and a monkey will appear xD

♌ Orion’s Rare Finds ♌


Last updated by MooMoo on 11/30/13: added blue sticky note

Click here for the All Rares list (member and nonmember items)

orion1

At Orion’s Rare Finds, there are A LOT of cool items that you can get for free, Premium Member or not. You may have tried in the past to place gems into the orb, Non-Members, and found it was for Members only.THIS IS BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO KNOW THE RIGHT COMBINATION!

Only the following four combos work for Non-Members:


The other 2 super rare gems are of NO USE to Non-Members! So when playing games…

  orion3    

…do NOT try and get the highest score possible, or you’ll get a rare gem, and won’t be able to use it.

To get the gem for each game, you have to score at least this number of points:

  • Staries: 4000 pts
  • Bubble Bug: 7000 pts
  • Candy Swap: 15000 pts

REMEMBER, NON-MEMBERS: STOP ONCE YOU REACH THE MINIMUM, SO YOU’LL HAVE MORE OF A CHANGE TO GET THE BLUE GEM!

All items are given out randomly! There is NO specific gem combination to get a certain item!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Update (August 4, 2012)

A lot of people have been asking: If nonmembers buy gems with ecoins, will they be able to get premium member rare items?

The answer is YES! If you buy gems with ecoins, you will get a member rare.

HOWEVER: If you use any of the nonmember gem combinations, you will only get a nonmember rare, which is a total waste of ecoins.

Meaning, don’t put your ecoin gems in these combinations, or you will get a nonmember rare!!
