Archives For Guild Guides

If you’re like countless other Neopians, you’ve probably joined a guild or two with lavish layouts, websites, and logos. Also, these guilds were probably successful, right? There are a few ways to make successful guilds, but I have found that the easiest way to success is through good graphics, friendly helping members, and a fun atmosphere. Friendly members and a fun atmosphere may already be present in your guild, but good graphics can be hard to achieve for some.

Pre-made layouts are just fine and there is no shame in them. Most people have used a pre-made once or twice when they didn’t feel like making a layout, they liked a certain one a lot, or they just didn’t know how to make a layout. I would though, recommend custom graphics request. You can go to the Guild board on the neoboards and you can probably get someone to make a custom graphic for you. Sadly though, people may ignore you if you don’t mention a neopoint tip for their services.

Okay, so youve got everything settled in Neopets. Everything – except your guild, that is! Now, you click on the Guild HQ picture, but you are then faced with a great challenge – what guild do you want to choose?

Guilds with Lots of Neopoints

If you like guilds that you think have lots of neopoints, and then find them by clicking on the image which brings you to the message boards. Now, scan through the whole page. You may also turn back to yesterdays advertisements. Usually they are on guilds or shops, but mostly guilds. The guilds advertised at the top are usually the guilds that have spent the most neopoints to advertise themselves. Then maybe thats the guild for you!

Basic Guild Vocabulary

This vocabulary list will help you better understand the parts of a guild, and terms that I will use on this page (and that are used frequently on the guild chat board).

Advertisers = People who advertise guilds on the guild chat board. They often use premade “copy-and-paste” ads with general guild information.
Council = The 5 people who lead the guild. The first is the owner, and the others are appointed by the owner.
Layout = The general appearance of the home page of a guild. It often consists of a background, a main image, and text concerning the guild.
Message Board = A place where guild members chat with each other.

1. Never say: ‘If you join my guild you will get a great newbie pack!’ Trust me, it NEVER works!

2. Don’t ask anyone who has already got a guild.

3. Never say: ‘I’ll add you as a neofriend if you join my guild!’

4. Try to make a sensible deal with them.

5. Search for newbies without guilds on the Newbie Board.

6. Don’t ask anyone who tells you that they have blocked guild invites on they’re lookup.

7. Ask your neofriends.

8. Don’t bother asking anyone in the Guild Advertisements Board.

9. If your guild is private, and you are not the leader, then ask the leader first before inviting anyone.

If you are having trouble getting members, then a good way to get people interested is by increasing your guild’s page views.

I know from experience that before I had my own guild and I was looking for one to join, one thing that would stand out was how many page views a guild had.

The more page views your guild has, the more that visitors will think your guild is popular because so many people have looked at it.

A guild with page views into the thousands is good. Most people like a popular guild because they know it will always be active.
