Auctions

I love the auctions but it’s NOT a good habit, and if you are easily persuaded to buy things and LOVE competition, you would be a great person to bid at the auctions; but I suggest you don’t get into the habit because it’s bad. I once spent 60,000 neopoints at the auctions IN ONE DAY! (In fact, in only a little less than five hours.) If you do choose to bid at the auctions, you should carefully watch that no one bids on your item. If someone bids on your item at the last-minute (or second) there is nothing you can do.

If you’ve ever been to a neoboard in your life you’ve most probably saw the word n00b mentioned. At first, you thought: “That is so mean how people make fun of newbies like that!! It’s not their fault they’re new to neopets!” but actually, n00bs and newbies mean totally different things. Today, I will teach you how to distinguish between the two because it is a very important skill one must learn to avoid wrongful accusations.

For a newcomer to the message boards, the bombardment of seemingly nonsensical terminology can come as quite a shock. Yet it is not this particular feature of the good, old boards that leaves many a brave Neopian running in the opposite direction at the end of the day. What is this horror, this evil, this terror, you ask? Why – it is nothing more (but nothing less) than the menacing prospect of being labeled…*drum roll*… a n00b!

Thus, the purpose of this article is to do three things: first, to provide an insight into the world of n00bism; second, to identify the tenets pertaining to n00bism; and third, to proffer a solution so as to return the boards to all their previous glory.
