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.

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."

a game that will take over your life if you allow it to.

basically, you make a pet.
a weird little creature that might resemble a flamingo or penguin.
then you play these addicting games to get "neopoints" which pay for your pet's food. But you don't have to feed it. The fucking things never die, anyways.
And then theres chat boards, "shops" and other stuff.
I once had 500,000 neopoints but my account got frozen because they thought I hacked onto other peoples accounts. Wtf.
Sally: Do you still go on Neopets?
Amos: :chuckle: Yeah! Its flippin' sweet.

An online game that once, in a distant time, was fun. I was on neopets years ago, before all this idiotic advertising. Then, the admins weren't all uptight, but cared about you and the site. They once even came onto the boards, and you were allowed to 'neomail' them. But such times are gone. You can get frozen for anything at all. (I got two accounts frozen twice in two days for commenting on how the site went downhill.) There was once a board called 'General Category' that one day, for no real reason, was removed. This was generally the 'idiot pen' and without it, the idiots roamed free. They all seemed to choose to go to the 'FC' where the roleplayers hung out. And that was the FCs demise. Slowly roleplays became more rare, and are now gone altogether. An 'IFC' was made in a secretive location. I was invited and it was fun for awhile. But the 'FCers' that went there simply became the idiots they hated, minus the chatspeak. There really isn't much reason to go anymore.
Neopets has really just turned into a merchandise spot.

Neopets was once a fun little site, but now it has become addictave and unfair. Some people say that people only think it is unfair cause you got frozen. I got frozen unfairly. It said I posted something inapropiate and so I submitted it to be looked over and got frozen. Now I see the light. Neopets is not the GREAT of a site. It is just a descise of Evil. I hate the site now. The games get boring cause they are over played. Adds everywhere. Unjust rules. (You cannot talk about Christianity, but you can talk about wiccans, vampires, and witchcraft.) The filter has too many flaws, and Like many people said if you get too many neopoints they automatically think that you are scamming or using multiple accounts and you loose all your hard work. I think that there are alot more fun virtual pet sites out there if you look. And If you go for just the boards I know there are better boards. I say stop before Neopets takes you completly over and you become a drone.
Another problem is all the n00bs. They are looking for b/f, or g/f. I think if you are looking on that site then you just are so sad you can't get one in the real world. So I know just find Neopets a BIG dissapointment.

This site is fucking satan in a box. I'm not even kidding. It contains the effects of the following:

nicotine
speed
caffiene

TNT (theneopetsteam) only cares about a few select people, who in all honesty probably arent even people but bots made to look like someone that has no life. They dont want constructive criticism, they just want plain, cookie cutter, "nothing is wrong" people who wont care what happens because TNT will just keep playing favorites with them.

For example. A few years back, there was a hacker. Hacked into the bases and reset a lot of peoples pets. It was blamed on a "mis-firing lab ray", which is an excuse a freaking three year old could tell is about as likely to be true as britney spears ever having scored over a twelve on an iq test. Hundreds of people are screwed over, but some select people got their stuff back. Coincidence?

And then one time for an april fools joke, i had made the name "featherallley" (it had an extra "l"). went to the boards and posted "hi". nothing but "hi". within minutes i was iced.

Which makes me wonder about the kind of game where theres actually a nickname for getting banned. Thats what people call it there, "iced".

They've gone totally sell out, where 3 out of 4 games are sponsor games and 99/100 games are completely pathetic and could probably give you cancer just from playing them.

It will steal your soul. Stay away from this at all costs.
(before neopets)
Person 1: Hey man, me and Taylor are gonna go catch a movie. You up for it?

Person 2: Sure thing. This T.V. show's starting to get boring anyway.

(after neopets)
person 1: Dude, the new skate park just opened up! We're gonna go skate for a while, you should come with us.

person 2: I uh...have stuff to do.

(weeks later)

person 1: Hey...uh you havent been at school for a few days and you arent answering any calls. Whats wrong?

person 2: *sobbing uncontrollably* I got iced!

Neopets used to be fun when they had General Chat and reasonably priced items. But now it is a dictatorship. TNT sits on their throne and freezes users for being rich or just being a user or just because they have nothing better to do (try making the site a little more user-friendly, bitches!). We are just the helpless villagers awaiting eternal ice. Even if you do ask for your account back and give them real reasons why you shouldn't have been frozen they will still never reply. If you ask for help on a subject like a rare item code not working, they will send you an e-mail saying "Why don't you try asking the people on the Help boards. They will be more than happy to help."
NO THEY WON'T! The n00bs at the Help boards sit there and wait for unsuspecting newbies to ask an innocent question and then the attack you like a swarm of bees yelling "Oh mi geee uR LYK t0talLY rEp0rtED!!!!11!!!111!" and then TNT says they check each report thoroughly, but in reality they see if enough people report the matter and freeze them and when they ask for their account back they say "Why don't you try asking the people on the Help boards. They will be more than happy to help." I CANT GO ON THE BOARDS YOU SONOFABITCH! YOU FROZE ME! They wouldnt even let me type the word "naughty" when I was quoting it from Harry Potter! They care too much about their sponsors to even begin to think about what is best for their users. They say, "No profanity allowed.", but the faeries practically work for Playboy showing all their cleavage! Have some dignity! They won't let you say "I believe in Christ". But they will let you say "Wiccans will rule the earth and kill you!". Come on! Neopets! What happened to it? Where did they go wrong???
