An extremely messed up, overadvertising, dumb, commercialized site started in 1999. If you were a player for a long time, you would understand the stupid changes they made. If you started after 2004, and you're still defending it, you're a stupid fanboy/girl. There is no other word to describe this highly addicting and liferuining site other than STUPID and unfair. Here's reasons why:

Overadvertising, commercials, ads, you name it! You don't even have to visit a porn site or any other busy to the ass sites to see this. Go to Neopets.com and see there's huge ad on top, a huge ad on the bottom, an ad on the right, and now, you even see ads in their popup game windows! They disabled the popup window games so they can have the games load on the same page as the ads for increase ad revenue. And I bet people go "use Adblock" well let me break it to you, not everyone uses Firefox, and not everyone knows how, and even when you do adblock, it just blocks the ad, not the entire frame.

They add different methods of luring people into their site. First they started off with collecting virtual trading cards, and it wasn't good enough because it was free, so that fab dropped. Then in 2004, they added avatars and "Neopets Premium" which gave rich people a few perks just to bribe them to stay, which eventually faded in 2007, so if you wasted your money and neopoints on them for three years, THEY AREN'T RELEASING ANY ANYMORE AVATARS! Then they added sidebar themes and that eventually stopped because they changed the site to a new cluttered, stupid and disgusting layout. Now they are using the stupid NC Mall and now you use real money to buy your pets some clothes to wear.

What happened to the simple Neopets? And then when they "maintenance" the pound because they thought their dumb virtual pets had feelings, what about now? We're dressing up our dumb looking pets acting like they don't even have feelings. Well they never did have feelings because they aren't real.

They changed the whole site completely. Other than the fucked up ads they added in, you notice how it went from a simple layout (a sidebar navigation) to then a sidebar navigation and a top bar, and now it's a top bar and another horizontal navigation bar which looks disgusting and had many users angry. Then they had the need to add more "intro boxes" like in your items page, the into would have a stupid image and a small paragraph about what you can do with your items when it's pretty self explanatory. Then on the games page, they changed the simple four images to about 20 tables of categorizing which makes the site look utterly gross and cluttering. And with dialup, you'll take years before that whole page is done loading, along with a few broken images you may get.

They also had the need to change the navigation for the shop area that used to be a cool looking scroll with icons on it, now it's just plain text for so stupid reason. They could make all these dumb changes to their layout but they can't even fairly distribute things to their players?

Their contests are extremely unfair and hard to win. They act like many players are actually on their site. They choose the corniest jokes, ugliest pictures, and worse random contest projects. They promote favoritism, and treat very famous players nicely and who knows if they are actually real. They have been unfairly freezing people for no apparent reason since 2004 where all the changes started happening.

They changed all the Neopets looks for them to fit into the stupid clothes you have to buy to let them wear. Now the all have a hideous pose with their fist coming up.

No neopoints? Tough luck, the most anyone would usually get is about 10,000 NP a day spending about two hours playing their repetitive and copied games. You'd save for a year before you get a million NP and before you know it, it's not even that much neopoints. The deal is, if you don't have Neopoints, don't expect the game to be easy. You can be playing your whole life and still be only 20% completed. Their game high scores are impossible to get yet many players managed to get them anyway, so if you're an average player, forget getting a flash game trophy because it will never happen. You can score 9,000 on Suteks Tomb and that's considered good, yet people on the charts oddly scored 100,000 and up.

If you don't have fast internet, you could expect yourself not doing shit. Their flash games have to be waited to load, then wait for the background to load, then wait for the actual game to load. Back then it was just a simple clicking on the Chias or the blumaroo head spinning. Now they added these stupid ugly animations that just blinds you. Their games have bad music, long ass intros, you'd watch for like 20 seconds before you can actually play (usually can't skip these small animations) and then you'll realize the game sucks. They also renamed games because they felt they were "offensive."

They changed numerous games and a lot of them got the worse changes and made the game heavier to load and longer to start. Sometimes you don't even get your neopoints because there's an "error" when you send score and then you have to play all over again. Everything in the game is massively expensive, things inflat everyday, anything you get can be worth shit, and when you throw it away, the next day it could be 10,000,000 neopoints. They retire so many paint brushes so they can lure you to buy their clothes with REAL MONEY.

The left sidebar is annoying as fuck. There's a stupid image of your pet saying the same 5 comments over and over again. Then if you visit your quick references, you see three images of your same pet, then in your items page, you see another two images of your pet. THEY WANT YOU TO GET SICK OF SEEING IT SO YOU CAN WASTE MORE TIME ON THEIR SITE CHANGING YOUR PET OR MAKE YOU SPEND REAL MONEY TO DRESS THEM UP!!

The staff is so uncaring, mean, give bad excuses and rude comments. They told my unfairly frozen account has been inactive for too long to be recovered, which is a lie. They just me to play MORE on their site. My whole life playing since the changes in 2004, I only got one response from them when I emailed the staff. Usually you send them a message, you never get a response.. NOT EVEN AN AUTO RESPONSE!

So obviously, if you weren't a long term 7 year player like I was, you wouldn't know shit about the changes they did because you just started playing and act like the biggest suck up to the staff. If you HAVEN'T heard of this site, do yourself a favor and stay away from it before it takes you down to hell with them.
Neopets.com is the worse site and yet they promote themselves to be the "best" site with their gay merchandise and cheaply made t-shirts and happy meal toys. Their rare item codes on the toys don't even give you rare items! The item just says "(Rare)" but it's really worth about 400NP most of the times.

A fun waste of time. The birth-place of lazyness. People get fat on this website, We sit there for hours each day doing thing with pixels. Pathetic, in my own opinion, even though I play the bloody thing. Pathetic but fun, and highly addictive.

The owners are wankers, fat wankers. They seem to only care about their sponsors and not about their users. The website is a grave-yard of social lives... If you start playing you become lifeless... I don't think i'll ever stop playing, I am too addicted..

So the message is:
Play neopets and become fat, lifeless and boring. Or don't, be thin, easy to talk to and your friends wont call you a geek.

A site ive been playing for several years. It used to be excellent, but then prices have gone WAY too high, it is too oversencored, has many n00bs, and is addicting, you often get frozen for no reason, and took over my life. Lately all theyve cared about is money and advertisement. Escpecially since theyve sold it to viacom. Im ashamed to be addicted and still play it :(
I LURVE NEOPETS OH 11010010101010101010 ROFL

Neopets is a virtual pet website that used to be kind of fun and really addicting, but now it is swarmed by mentally ill n00b seven year olds begging for "neopoints" and boyfriends. Also, the owners completely sold out, so now all these little kids who have never heard of the website walk into Limited Too (OMFG d@tZ m4I fAvRriT sToR$RE!!!112) and beg mommy for a kyoot plushyy!! There's a new service where people with money will be able to do all the fun stuff the normal people can't.
Like I said, it's really addictive. Once you start, you may need The Patch.

An addicting virtual game where you get to have 4 pets. You get to play all these games which got you Neopoints which was used to buy stuff. Boards, shops, neomailing, games..it was fun while it lasted.

Neopets now sucks. Noobs are taking over the boards with their excessive 7 year olds saying they're looking for "g1rLllfRi3ee3nds" or how "my cat died, i want to kill myself. boohooboohoo" They cannot type propr english either. There are useless noobs that report you without a reason and then you loose your account. Then you try to tell TNT (Neopets Team) that you were mistakenly frozen..you wait for months and months and may not even get a notice.

Some old games are good but they have to delete them and replace them with shitty advertisement games that had the same concept. Spin the wheel! GO through the maze eating stupid pixels! .. -_-

Let's face it, the newbies will never get rich, the old members are quitting, neopets is going to die in the next 2 years.

A virtual pets site where you get to own four pets, feed them, play games, and chat with your friends.

Neopets used to be a great site. I played since I was nine years old, and it was my favorite site to be on. I always felt comfortable there and all the different aspects of the site were so much fun for me.

Now, as so many people will tell you, Neopets is the absolute shittiest site on the internet. (ZOMG reported!!!1!!) They have advertisments on every page. The site is run by totalitarian bastards who don't care about anything but money. The site is too censored for anyone over the age of seven. The mods forbid mentioning other sites and try to brainwash children into thinking that Neopets is the best the Internet has to offer. And most of all, the boards are filled with "dun h8 me b/cuz im gawf!!!1!!!!!" and "hi im 11/f/us do ne hawt boiz wnt 2 chat??!!?!?!1!" The majority of people on there are JUST FUCKING STUPID.

Ever since I found Gaia, the only reason I ever go on Neopets anymore is to see how much worse the site is now than before.
Person: ZOMG i lurv3 neopetz!!!!!!!!

*person is given links to several other, better sites*

Person: I can't believe I used to like that crap!

1: (neeopets) N. A computer game at www.neopets.com. An unfair but often fun site. The game consists of taking care of pets ( a rare few actually do) and making money. Mostly the latter. Very difficult to make money, as the NT (Neopets Team) sees this as hacking, scamming, or basically anything except the work you put into it.Oddly addictive and kind of scary when you remember things from about 5 years ago. Breeding ground to haters, people who think they are immortal, cyber-ers, and the occasional normal person. Most players are older than you would think and some Grandmothers are known to be on the site. Nifty if you don't have anything better to do.
2: (neeopets) N. Fake animals that live in Neopia on the site. Don't be fooled, they do get sick, but even though it says they're dying...they're not.
1:"Woah, you still play Neopets?"
"I can't stop playing Neopets!!"
"I've been playing Neopets since I was nine."
2:" OH MY GOD! MY NEOPETS ARE DYING!!Oh wait..it's said that for the past two years."
"Dude, do these neopets ever die?I haven't fed them since I started playing."
