The precious piglets are very spontaneous and nobody can predict exactly when one of them will show up next. However, a few things are known about them:
Precious piglets can only be encountered in the tavern, not in any of the other channels. Whenever they show up, they will give a gift to the person who made the last post.
After a piglet was in the tavern, the next one might come within just a few minutes, but it may also take them many hours to show up again.
If a Pseudonym has made the last post, it counts the same as if a main account had made it. The piglets will bring their gift regardless.
All admins and fairies will be ignored by the piglets. If an admin or a fairy had the last word in the tavern, the gift goes to the person who posted before them.
Deleted or banned users frighten the piglets. If a deleted or banned user had the last word in the tavern, the piglets will prefer to visit later.
