Everyday when I go onto Neopets, I go on the Help board to see if there is anyone I might be able to help. Almost everyday I see a board that says ‘Is this a scam?’ Now, if I go on that board, I am almost certain to find that no one at all has offered help to the poor person who started the board. No, instead, they are only saying things like: ‘Oh you are so gullible’, ‘You are scamming’ and ‘What a n00b’.

None of those comments are helping the person who started the board, and the reason they started the board was, like it or not, to get help. Maybe it is a bit gullible, falling for a scam, but we all make mistakes, and anyway, being gullible is no ones fault.

You know how when you go over to an older relative’s house, and they reminisce about the “good old days”? Well, older Neopians can do the same, only in this case, “old” would be about three or four years old. A person is able to go to the neoboards and see the current issues Neopia is experiencing plots, avatars, new ideas, etc.

Well, back in my day, Neopia was much different. There was no such thing as Roo Island, Kiko Lake, or even the Deserted Fairground. Neopia was much smaller back then. The founding of Meridell was a huge deal. The Neoboards were abuzz with talk of a medieval world. Could it be possible? The Neopets team made a medieval world! What will the pets look like? Will a paint brush come with it? Those were all the topics concerning Meridell. Then came the war. Everyone on the boards had chosen a side, Darigan or Meridell. We all know how the war ended. Meridell won, and Lord Darigan had been vanquished. And yes, this was before the second Meridell war soon after with Lord Kass.

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.

On a site known as Neopets, there is a board called, the Help Chat, or HC, called by frequent users.

The OLD HC was a place where, as the name says, you come for help, & you help users in need. That means, how to Restock, or help me with my pet page. We had fun, often making friends, & just having a good time.

Over the past 2 years or so, the HC slowly started to Die, after neopets started to get publicity, then, the KIDS arrived. TNT released there first real-life Neopets merchandise, just in time for summer, when kids have more free time.

Picture this,you are new to Neopets, you click on the Neoboards, and…what is this? You are clueless on what to do, where to go, and what to say. So I created this simple guide to help you make your way through the chat boards.

The Front Page

On the front page of the boards, there are around 20 different message boards. Under each one is a short description of what you are supposed to talk about on that certain board.

For example, under the ‘Help’ chat board, it says:

Need Neopets help? If you’ve got a question, this is the place to get answers.

Make sure you only chat on a board about what you are supposed to chat about. For example, you wouldn’t go to the ‘Guilds’ board and talk about the Altador Cup.
