This is a guide about addiction to Neopets and when it affects your life. I would like to point out the things I’ve seen on users who play Neopets. They might not even realize what they’re doing, so here it is:

*Have you ever achieved a goal, for example, bought that paintbrush you’ve always wanted? You were so happy that you even went to the boards and told everyone about it, but what happens when this happiness goes too far?*

Trophies: A Neopets poll states that a user lookup shines more because of painted pets, NOT trophies. Trophies are nice. I mean who doesn’t want to get one because of the hard work! Trophies are nice to have, but don’t go around making people feel bad when you have about 20 trophies and they have only 2. Bragging isn’t always a good thing. Feel good about what you’ve achieved, but don’t make it part of your whole life. Trophies are just virtual pictures. Not real life. Keep in mind most people get those trophies through cheating, and the rest because of hard work, so really you might think “woah, he has 25 trophies” because you thought he earned them himself, but in reality, he might’ve only earned 10 by himself, the rest through cheating or who knows how (yes this is actually true, ever wonder why most users agree that one of the games it’s actually IMPOSSIBLE to get a 20,000,000 on? Unless it’s through cheating?) But hey, some people actually ARE good at games. Don’t let the fact of having 50 trophies control your life. When you grow up or quit Neopets, those trophies won’t matter anymore and hopefully you won’t lose them through hacking.

For a newcomer to the message boards, the bombardment of seemingly nonsensical terminology can come as quite a shock. Yet it is not this particular feature of the good, old boards that leaves many a brave Neopian running in the opposite direction at the end of the day. What is this horror, this evil, this terror, you ask? Why – it is nothing more (but nothing less) than the menacing prospect of being labeled…*drum roll*… a n00b!

Thus, the purpose of this article is to do three things: first, to provide an insight into the world of n00bism; second, to identify the tenets pertaining to n00bism; and third, to proffer a solution so as to return the boards to all their previous glory.

Before I started my Neopets account, all my friends were saying that it was a very boring site. I however being the only one of my friends whom had never tried neopets, I decided to give it a shot.

I created my Neopets account and created my first neopet. Then I slowly started to really enjoy the site, exploring around the world of Neopia, playing games, winning neopoints – which is now one of my obsessions. Because of that i decided to win even more neopoints by creating my shop.

Then one day when i logged on, And went to pets central, and scrolled down, I saw the Neopian adoption agency link. I clicked it and when I saw what it was i decided to get three more adopted neopets.

To all those who have played Neopets or may currently do so, prepare to probably have your views on the entire game changed. This article, especially for hardcore players such as your battledomers, traders, or other rich entities, will challenge everything you’ve ever known.

First a question: How many of you know someone who has been iced? I’m sure most of you know at least one person. Now how many of those people claimed an unfair icing? Again, a fair amount. Now I’m sure some of these people have legitimate claims, but the rest may have slipped up at least once which resulted in an icing.

On a site known as Neopets, there is a board called, the Help Chat, or HC, called by frequent users.

The OLD HC was a place where, as the name says, you come for help, & you help users in need. That means, how to Restock, or help me with my pet page. We had fun, often making friends, & just having a good time.

Over the past 2 years or so, the HC slowly started to Die, after neopets started to get publicity, then, the KIDS arrived. TNT released there first real-life Neopets merchandise, just in time for summer, when kids have more free time.
