Neopets... To many it is a site full of excitement; one to be admired. For others, it is a site to be detested.

Neopets, when it first came out, was a really good site. You could play games, take care of your pet, and even chat on the Neoboards. Neo life was good back then. What happened next is amazing.

On June 20th, 2005, Adam and Donna did something that would soon lead to their sites demise. On that fateful day, Viacom bought Neopets from Adam and Donna for $160,000,000.

Ever since Viacom has taken over, there have been no avatars. I do believe the last one was the "Day at the Beach" one, waaaay back in April, '07. Then, shortly after that, the pound closed for maintenance. Then they decided to change the layout of the site, which got hundreds of members flaming mad. Then, the two worthless excuses for a plot. First there was 'The Journey to the Lost Isle' (JTTLI) and another SLOTH plot. *eyeroll*

Site change: From the start of the site, until about late 2007, the layout of the site had the following:
#) A sidebar, with all the links to the different locations (Games, Boards, Shops etc.) along with a topbar which led you to your lookup.
#) Now, there is no sidebar, and everything is smashed into one bar at the top of the screen. Granted, it does look neater, but it caused alot of confusion for a very long time.
#) With the new theme change, contriversy started over how The Neopets Team (TNT) is changing the site, and how it's going to come down soon.

Avatars:
#) Since the last avatar that was released, people have been complaining about TNT not making any new avatars.
#) Most of the complainers are people who consider themselves "1337" or above everyone else.
#) These so called "1337ists" think they can make an off-topic board, and get away with it; but the VERY SECOND someone who isn't in a "special clique" makes an off-topic board, they flame* them.
{*: To flame someone is to use talk that lowers their self-esteem, while attempting to make yourself look cool}
#) Most of the people complaining could still get at least 50-100 of the remaining avatars that they still need.

Pound:
#) Ever since the site took a turn into the 21st century, the pound has been down.
#) Apparently, TNT needed to revamp (or redo) the pound, because they suddenly found it important for pets to have feelings.
#) This also lead to people complaining.

Bonju avatar:
#) There was one new avatar, which apparently was released during the Cyodrake Gaze plot (which might I add, wasn't really a "plot".)
#) People have apparently said that they have gotten the avatar, and then self-froze their account. People that say that, have no lives, and are only seeking attention. If you're dumb enough to believe them, you need help... and FAST!

Neopets Mall (NC Mall):
#) About 1-2 months ago, Viacom decided to open up a new store in Neopia Central, which requires you to buy FAKE money, with REAL money. Seriously... Viacom... couldn't you come up with a less obvious way to scam people of their money.

Insane freezing/rules:
#) Ever since Viacom has taken control, they feel as though they can freeze you for saying a certain pet looks like a celebrity, or something stupid.
#) They REFUSE to freeze the swarm of scammers (both new and old), but they choose to freeze people that have done nothing wrong.

All in all, TNT is/has brought their site to it's own destruction by selling it to that good for nothing company. Granted, it was fun in the first few years, but ever since then, I find the site rather degrading, and I think I actually lost some IQ points for staying on that site as long as I did.
