Well how about this. I think Neopets is unfair to a lot of people outside of the US! Like me. I’m from New Zealand.

First thing. A lot of those sponsor deals and those “Get 1,000 NP a day!” things are worthless. All of them are “sign up with our sponsor” and such while practically every single one of them I’ve seen have ONLY been for US residents. Granted, it’s not a big amount of NP but it still seems very excluding.

Timing for things doesn’t always seem too bad since things are spread out throughout the day/night. but one of the other things that annoys me is the merchandise. I’ve seen some really cute things in the merchandise, that I’d love to get my hands on.. Things in the wish list – but none of those items are available here. In fact there seems to be rather little of Neopets available here. I don’t know if that will eventually change but I saw some items that are listed ‘limited edition’ or whatever – does that mean they’ll not be available here because their stock all went to the US? I don’t know.

Illusen by cjcooliogurl

Illusen. Sure shes poked a hole in our wallets. A hole that keeps getting bigger and bigger. But now that her quests are gone what’s going to happen to her? To her quests? Here’s my theory.

Well, shes just going to disappear why not? Easy. Illusen isn’t going to disappear. Shes a faerie. A living faerie (OK if you’re confused just remember that this is Neopets. Play along.) So, now you’re thinking, Well, if you’re so smart, whats going to happen to her?

Its really quite simple. Not including Meridell, there are nine worlds. Why doesn’t she go to one of those places, rebuild her Glade, and live happily ever after again?? Sounds good to me. But which one will she choose?? If you think about it, its a hard choice. Where should I go? Here’s where and where not she should take her quests to and (what I think) a pretty good explanation of it

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.

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.
