He battled ferocious storms, he braved chilling odds and he ran the whole 9 yards to bring you what we know as Neopets today. But do you really know who Adam really is? In a Pink Poogle Toy exclusive, we chased after Adam, we badgered him with relentless phone calls and we dogged his every move, until he finally gave in and gave us this up-close-and-personal interview, where we dig until there is nothing left to dig for, and we uncover astounding secrets about Adam. But if you think that’s all, just wait until you see what Adam revealed about the Neopets crew and the game history! For instance, did you know that we could have been playing Varmints? Read on and find out more wicked facts!

So how do people always manage to get those great pets? What do people mean when they say, “I’m looking for an application that really stands out?” If you’ve come here on purpose or by accident, then keep reading.

Before anything, make sure you really want the pet. If only you want a pet because it’s L/E or painted an expensive colour or painted at all, then stop reading now, and don’t apply. There’s someone out there that is willing to do a lot for that pet and do the right thing and give them a chance. Besides that, if your heart isn’t 100% set on getting that pet, then you won’t get that pet. Each section of your application will need to be detailed and meaningful and you can’t have that if you don’t really want the pet.

Hi. My name is Dreamer4284, a faithful Neopian. Although you probably dont know me, I am here to tell you my story. It is long, so sit back and relax.

One fine Sunday morning, I was chatting with my friend on AIM. We were having a good time, when all of a sudden she starts laughing! She said that she was chatting with a scammer, and was having a little *fun* with them. So, I decided that I wanted to have a bit of fun myself. So I asked her for the screen name, and she told me it was FlyBabi5. Then, my friend told me that the PERSON WHO SHE WAS CHATTING WITH HAD SAID SHE WAS GUCCI_MAMA and guess what I had just read that morning: yup, that is right the article here on pinkpoogletoy about the girl who had gotten scammed by this same person. Obviously, the same scammer goes around telling people that she is gucci_mama, when she is plainly not, just so it looks like she has a lot. That REALLY made me want to have a word with this loser. So, I began to chat.

When neopets said they named Gelert after a loyal dog, they weren’t kidding. It goes like this.

Prince Llywelyn once received a greyhound from King John, and the hound soon became his favourite. Faithful as any hound had ever been, and gentle as a lamb, the hound was also a lion at the chase. One day, Llywelyn prepared to leave on the hunt, he gave call to his noble hound with his hunting horn. All his other hounds came at the call, but not his faithful Gelert. Llywelyn could wait no longer, and so left on his hunt.

When Llywelyn returned to his castle, who should be waiting to greet him but Gelert! As the hound bounded closer to greet him, Llywelyn was startled to notice that Gelert’s lips and fangs were covered with blood. Now Price Llywelyn had a son, barely a year old, and as Llywelyn recalled how Gelert and his young son used to play together, a terrible thought came to his mind. He rushed to his son’s nursery, only to find the cradle overturned and the sheets covered in blood. Llywelyn looked frantically for his son, but couldn’t find him anywhere, only the evidence of much blood and a struggle within the nursery. Turning to Gelert, whose muzzle was still wet with blood, Llywelyn came into a great rage and cried, “Thou hast killed my only son!”, and drew his sword and drove it into the side of the hound. Gelert yelped once and with a sorrowful look into Llywelyn’s eyes, died at his master’s feet. At the sound of Gelert’s last yelp, there was a small cry from beneath the overturned cradle. When Llywelyn righted it, who should he find beneath it but his small son, safe and unharmed, and as well the torn and bloodied body of a huge wolf. Too late Llywelyn discovered what had really happened while he was away. Gelert had stayed behind to guard the child, and had fought and slain the wolf that had crept into the nursery. In vain was Llywelyn’s grief, for he could not revive his faithful hound. He erected a tomb in the valley in honour of his friend, calling it ‘Bedd Gelert’ or the ‘Grave of Gelert’, the namesake of the town Beddgelert, in northern Wales.

The Background Story

The first time I got my neopets account frozen, mradamface, I was furious. After all, this was 6 months of hard work down the drain. 6 million neopoints, a pet with an idb rating of over 600, millions of neopoints in weapons: all gone with nothing to show for it; all because I was working off the same ip address as my scamming brother. When it became clear that I was not getting this account back, I just decided that I might as well start anew. Id heard that life on neopets was better the second time: you didnt have to deal with the initial frustration; you could avoid all the newbie mistakes with this account etc. etc. At first, all these predictions were right. I was having fun, my pet was training hard, I had made over 4 million neopoints in my first month on neo. In short, everything was great. Thats when the other shoe dropped. Apparently neo decided that I was doing too well to be a newbie. I could just imagine scenes in my head of Adam and Donna looking at a computer monitor at my account seeing lots of neopoints and a half-decent pet and cackling maniacally just before hitting a giant red button clearly marked freeze. If you can imagine how mad I was the first time I got my account frozen, I was about 10X as unhappy the second time. It seemed sort of pointless, I couldnt play the game to the best of my ability without being labeled a cheater despite the fact that neopets could clearly see from their records that I had built my fortune through hundreds of small, legitimate transactions in my shop over several weeks. I was mad, I was abused, and I was not going to deal with neopets e-mail support any longer. I decided it was time for a road trip. After conferring with some people here on the PPT boards, I was all set to go down and give TNT a piece of my mind. It was smurf-kicking time.
