I saw on Pink Poogle Toy the message about the smoothie promotion starting 9/16. Luckily, that was my day off. I went to Jamba on Thursday morning and ask the lady behind the counter for a “Tigerfruit Smoothie”. She looked at me like I was crazy. She asked what it was and I told her that I saw on a website that there was going to be a Neopets/Jamba Juice promotion starting that day. She told me that she had no idea what I was talking about.

My brother also plays Neopets. I had called him several days prior to the 16th to tell him about the promotion. I called him after I left Jamba and told him they had no idea. He went later that day and asked for one as well. The lady told him he was the second person to ask for 1 that day! The lady went and asked the manager. The manager said that the “promotion” would start the next day, Friday the 17th. I was okay with this because we have been hammered with hurricanes and I figured they pushed it back.

Neopets often does not listen to what their users want, and this is the second reason most people leave (first is being frozen). Neopets has been known to freeze for no reason, or a generic reason with little to no explanation.

It takes most users over a year to get their account back when frozen, if they even get a response, which 95% of the time they do not. Any item that actually does something worth while costs so much money that you would have to save up for several months to get it, which by that time, either the item is no longer available, or no longer has the desired effect.

Avatars, since the day they’ve been out, they’ve just been wrecking Neopia. People have gone mad into collecting them. I myself was a heavy avatar collector, but then I realized, what is it worth? They ruined Neopia, absolutely ruined it. Yes, you might think I’m crazy, but let me explain my reasons before you call me crazy. So here are my reasons on how avatars have ruined all of Neopia and Neopets.

1: Game Scamming: The scammers have a huge opportunity for scamming now. Because the demand for certain game avatars have gotten so high, people are beginning to hire some stranger just so that they can play a game for them and get them an avatar. Why would anybody give their password up like that just for an avatar? This stranger now has a huge opportunity to take your neopoints, items, petpets, pets, whatever they wanted. They could even change your password and demand ransom for your account back. Yes, all this CAN and probably will happen just if you give away something as simple as your password.

The Beauty Contest: A way where you can express your artistic talents and your love for Neopets at the same time. On a normal Neopian day, I was happily clicking around in Pet Central and came across the front page of the Beauty Contest. Being a Neopian for a while, I was familiar with the Beauty Contest and how people spammed the Neochats all over just to gain one vote for their pet. My friend had entered the Beauty Contest before and despite her drawing being the best one out of the entries, she did not win. I decided that day to have a go at this “Beauty Contest”. Excuse me for thinking that I could enter the Beauty Contest and win a decent trophy that I deserve.
