To the north of Neopia, in the icy caves of Terror Mountain, a seemingly endless battle continues as week speak. The Grundo’s that were once enslaved and terrorized by the evil and vile Doctor Sloth is now being terrorized by wave after wave after wave of beastly snow figures, sometimes small, sometimes, not-so-small, and sometimes with full frontal assaults. There are about three dozen of these said Grundo’s encamped there but with them are renegade volunteers who are aligning themselves with those Grundo’s to protect them from the onslaught of snow monsters. They have even gone to the extent of posting flyers all around Neopia and putting ads in the Neopian Times magizines asking for volunteers and offering the small nominal awards that they could barely afford with the donations from the money tree, the good and kind faeries of Faerieland and a few other small organizations such as Neopets Against Doctor Sloth (N.A.D.S.) who align themselves with and assist in the neutralization of any and all of the nastier denizens of neopia. One of the big-time managers of the Neopian Employment Agency located in Faerieland saw one of these flyers and took it upon himself to start creating jobs for assisting the Grundos of the Terror Mount Ice Cave. One a neopet accepts and receives a job to work with the above mentioned Grundos for a certain specified amount of time the NeoPet goes there and hands one of the Commanding Generals on duty the slip of paper handed to them by the pursar at the employment agency mentioned above. And after working the specified amount of time as mentioned above, that general signs his signature on it stating that the neoPet has worked the specified amount of time and has done so to a degree of satisfaction. That NeoPet then returns to the Employment Agency and hands one of the pursars the slip with the signature and receives his payment and if the signature states that the neopet has worked to a degree of excellence then the NeoPet gets a bonus of anywhere from one NeoPoint and up. this war between the Grundos of the Ice Caves of Terror Mountain has been going on for generations now and the assistance of the employment agency has been there with them for over two decades now. And now the Employment Agency receives hundreds upon hundreds of requests everyday from the Wockies of the Lost Desert for assistance in warding off the on-going raid of alien invaders as well as Zygorax and his allies requesting assistance up in outer space in the thwarting of the attack of evil fuzzles AAAANNNDDD The Tyrannian Council who are debating as we speak about the rumors of up and coming war and they ask for not only assistance, they also ask that those who choose NOT to participate, that they should board up there windows and create storm shelters and hidden room tp hide and find cover in case the rumor become true. Many Neopets ask, “Well what are we going to do if we DO beat them? Let them go and wait for them to attack again? Many Neopets talk of rumors answering these very same questions as rumors are floating all about Neopia stating that plans are being made to force them into the Haunted Woods and turn it into a prison fortress. Nobody knows for sure though whether these rumors will or will not come to be but many entertain them in hopes that they do, I myself am one. – RuaCracker@aol.com

Section 1: Extremely Obvious Scams

Fake Login Pages:

This is probably the oldest scam there is and it’s totally obvious. Say you want to log in to Neopets. And then you go to the login page. If the URL isn’t http://www.neopets.com ITS FAKE! If you would like to see an example of a fake login page, go to http://www.neopetz.com. Sometimes, after you enter your info and your account is bye-bye, you’ll see a message such as this, HAHAHAH I SCAMMED YOU! I say it’s extremely hilarious but I don’t want it to happen to me. ;D

There is a 99.99% chance that you have absolutely NO IDEA who I am, and I don’t blame you, really. My username is fiddelysquat, and I’m setting about the task of making Neopia a better place. I plan to do this not by reporting every scammer and freezing every hacker, I plan to educate Neopets players. Please, don’t hit the back button just yet: I plant to teach you some lessons not only valuable on Neopets, but valuable in life outside of Neopia.

People are always writing articles that simply list the ways of being scammed, and telling you not to fall for them. I have yet to see an article that answers the single most important question a human being can ask. Why? Why is it impossible to generate neopoints? Why cant there be a program out there that multiplies items and such? Being the inquisitive young girl I am, I set about to find out for all of you.

Every year, Neopia grows … literally. Not only is our population increasing, the size of our pets are increasing. In 2004, over 64% of adult neopets were overweight, over 30% were obese, and 5% were at the point of no return. Being obese is defined as being 25% or more overweight based on height. The poor pets who suffer from obesity have to endure social displeasures on a daily basis such as constant insecurity and a drastically increased financial burden to themselves and the general public due to health issues related to obesity. Of course it is easy to point the blame at the victims of obesity, but in reality, a number of these unfortunate pets are victims of genetic obesity, inherited by ancestors rather than developed by a large consumption of groceries. No matter how much a pet weighs, he/she is affected by obesity in one way or another. If we separate those who are obese and allow them to live in a specific area of Neopia, it will create an opportunity to eliminate obesity and improve the overall health of this nation.

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.
