I started playing Neopets about 2 years ago. It became very addictive very quickly, AND WITH GOOD REASON! The site was INCREDIBLY fun. I started out like most Neopians, getting very excited when I hit my first 10,000 nps (which we all NOW know isn’t much) and was able to get my first painted pet, a mutant Grundo named hank_6698. Those days were great, I couldn’t wait to get home and play Neopets. And then, I discovered the discussion boards.

The discussion boards made Neopets THAT MUCH BETTER. Meeting great friends such as sugarypixiestix and many others made my Neopets experience that much more enjoyable. Little did I know things would not stay that way.

I was reading the interesting facts page on pink poogle, and it was dagavoo (or however ya spell that stupid word) all over again. when I was a newbie, long, long ago… well, it was long long ago. I think about yesterday… or three years. *ahem* in some ways, neopets was cooler then. kinda. more games and gadgets now, but I still miss the good ol days. you know how all the chat rooms [message boards] a broken into pieces? well in my prime, they were all one. and Donna was there. she was from the neopets team, but she was one of us. she’d talk to us on the board. someone’d cry cause the pant devil took there money and we’d all comfort her. and we’d pester Donna with our useless ideas like making neopets look more scary or pretty. and we’d annoy with the same question, over and over: “what are that expensive cloths and grooming junk for?” and she’d say:”we’re working on a use for them right now.” it sure is taking them a long time. and Bruce [yes, the neopet] was some guy in a tux and there wash! oh! but the idea we’d pester Donna most about was the battle dome. oooo…ah. I had that thing planned out forward and backward. unfortunately, so did everyone else, in their own special way. Donna became very confused. the funny thing is, I’ve done the battle dome once, decided I really didn’t like hurting my precious baby, and haven’t played since.

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.

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.

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.
