There was a completely slanderous and false article released about Neopets in Australia, and also on the news. The reporters did not even check out the site, since they would clearly see that what they were about to write was in error. Another article from Pink Poog Toy points out the errors in the article.

The number of javascript scripts targeting Internet Explorer, several people who are unable to switch browsers have turned off javascript. You cannot access any items (so you can’t feed or play with your pet via items). Only a few games are inaccessible. Those who have disabled javascript should look into visiting the Soup Kitchen, which lets users feed their pets for free if they have under 3,000 Neopoints. Not that it really matters if you can buy items in the main shops, since getting anything of profit is insanely hard. Good item stocking shops can have over 65 people in them trying to buy items at any time, even with the random restocks.

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.

In a growing trend that has been around since the early days of Neopia, we seem to have lost our memories or experiences of our very first neopet.

You know? The ones we created, The ones we named, The ones we just knew were the ‘coolest’. Needless to say these pets were probably among the most common.

Of course in life we are always left wanting more, this time fueled by the beautiful, elite and stronger looking neopets badged ‘limited edition’ and ‘restricted’. At the time we weren’t even really sure what this meant, We did know, however that we had to get our hands on them.

One of my favorite games on Neopets is NeoQuest. I haven’t played NeoQuest 2 yet, however. Neoquest is a simple RPG-Adventure system with a grid where you use a compass to determine your direction.

The game is entirely HTML, besides SWF music files, meaning dial up users be wary. You will do a lot of page loading on your adventures, and battles.

The battle system is very simple and effective, allowing you to gain skill points and put them into skills, weapons and armor etc.

The story is meant for those about 16 – 17, not that there are any “bad” words, it’s just that younger children may have trouble figuring out some of the larger and more obscure words.

About 5 months ago my friends mom had a baby. The baby would never let me hold or take care of it. I really wanted something to take care of, something that would always be there. That is when my friend told me about Neopets.

I was so excited I went and signed up on the site right away! I love it so much! It lets me take care of something when I want to but if I ever wanted to get rid of it, I have that option. Neopets has also helped me form a sense of responsibility. I know what it is like now, to have to go out and earn money (well in this case neopoints) and it feels good. When my pet says that they enjoyed something I gave them, it made me feel good. – allstarangel2008
