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.

Neopets is a majorly corrupted bitter-sweet game on the internet. It is run by about a handful of people, who used to be caring, but they have been corrupted by the Mcdonalds franchise. "Plushies", "Item Codes", and all sorts of junk have been placed on brands. Rumours have been going around, so I'm going to collect them here

1.Neopets is Communist. This seems entirely accurate, for the game will "Ice" you for almost anything, and to prove this, here is an extract I got from the site.
"Posting sexual or offensive material (language, images and usernames)." Cencorship is part of this balanced communist diet. You could be iced for posting, on the NeoBoards, a range of things. Opinions, Ratings, Get-Togethers, and the list goes on.

2. Neopets is HACKED. This sprouted from the fact that studies have been made, to prove that Twenty-Five Percent of users have been Iced, Warned, or had their Account deleted. That is a startling rate for averagely six or seven people to handle in, say, two years. 25% of Eighty Million, too. To be able to do that, you would have to be, like, an Insomniac whos only life is made up of Control and the letter "D".

3. Bought out. This seems the most likely, because something very startling is that at approximately 5 monts consecutavly of eachother, 3 brand names became infected with the Neo-disease. I'm going to start calling it Neoitis. So, in 5 monts, 3 was the average Neoitis count. Donna and Adam were probably rolling in riches by now. Two months went by, and another company was hit. Toys-R-Us. They started supplying the company with Trading Cards. But then "they" came. It was terrifying. They flocked in over the boards, and stole everything from the main plaza. But then it hit "The team". They realized that if they Ice more people, they will want more accounts, so they'd make more, and that would make their pay rise. But they, they got thrown out. Replaced with machines, I broke free from this disease, this Neoitis, and moved on to bigger and better things. A thing called "Life".

Thank you, and I sincerely hope you break free of this disease.
Current freedom from Neopets count = 9

This is a site created in 1999 by Adam Powell and his friend Donna Williams (I think). At the beggining, it was a pretty low quality site. Effortless art and broken images made the site have a bad view for many, however NOW, this site has taken off like a rocket at these scumbags are making tons of money off of crappy ads and a feature called "Premium Neopets", which is a version of neopets you PAY for, and get the staff (Known as 'TNT' or The Neopets Team) to favor you. Other than that the staff will not listen to you, not respond to your emails, and just completely not care about you. People get paid by sitting at a desk, and freezing peoples accounts for anything. The site is full of report happy kids that will report you for anything you say. And then the staff people see the report, and figure "K, he/she did something bad" and they will freeze your account right off the spot. Forever. And now, this good for nothing website - that I was once addicted to for 4 years - has video games, and toys being produced. They are sucking every child in america and now even around the world to play on this website. Why? They are bastards who love money. Thats it. They care about NOTHING but money, and the people giving them money. I cannont believe people above 16 can play on such a fucktarded excuse for a "fun" game. Its.. just.. little kids who love cute things.. and if they see that cute little toy, they are going to beg mommy to buy - and of course, she will, unknowing the fact she is just giving money to people who dont care. I wish the site would just die off. Each day it gets bigger and bigger, and with each second it gets gayer and gayer.

Wow that felt good to get that off.
Neopets player - I play neopets.
Guy who doesn't play - I feel so sorry for you..

------
Adam Powell - I LYKE LOVE MONEY!
Neopets Staff - US TOO! Lets have a party about how much we love money and let the site go completely free and not answer emails! But Fred, you better stay here and freeze deh n00bz, k?
Fred - K. Have fun you assholes.

Fred quit 3 days later.
Way to go Fred!

A screwed up game that used to be alot of fun, but Doug I don't give a crap about his last name bought the site and turned it into a advertising spot, now there are ads for Dating Sites, Viagra, and other various crapvertisements.
Here are a few reasons why it sucks:
1. TNT(the Neopets Team) is a clan of Hipocrites.
They say the site is not a dating service yet they have dating service links hovering above their messages, they say you can't post a picture of yourself wearing skimpy clothes yet their "faeries" look like they work part time at a strip club.
2. The n00bs(not newbs)
They ruined the boards and TNT bans the poeple that gang againsed them yet let the n00bs get away with saying "AwW s....h...i....t!I l3t mi p3t g3t s1ck!!!!!!!!!!111"
and you say "What?"
Then you get iced(banned)
3. The quality
They claim the shop will restock every 8 minutes or so but it is actually random and by that random I mean a few hours, and because of that people grab the items befor you are done haggling.
4. The moolah
Thats TNT's goal they want to make as much money as they can then the site is officialy abandoned.
5. Frozen
Thats what TNT does for fun, you cant even say "my name is Bob and I live in a box" because they think its is giving out personal info, you can say "Wiccans are the only thing you should believe in because our opinion matters and yours doesn't!!!"(not trying to offend anyone) without getting banned but you get banned for saying "I dont eat ham im Jewish" then you are Banned!
xXFinalFantasyXx:Idiot you still play Neopets?

A rubbish little site in which people go to make 'friends' and have 'fun'.

People cry over pixels (with rubbish name like 'neoneo27913263210neo2004' saying they lost them in the pound (by the way you can't lose them, you put them there) and they post messages saying stuff like 'did you lose a maraquan lupe in the pound?'. Yeah.

A popular online gaming site created by Adam Powell about five years ago. You start off by creating a neopet and taking care of it, and then you proceed to play games for neopoints, or the games form of currency. With these neopoints you can buy items such as paintbrushes to make your pets interesting colors or buy items for the battledome where your pets can challenge others. The game may seem rather kiddish, but many teens play the game just for fun, perhaps to rp their pets or chat with others. The game may seem pointless because there is no end, but if you have a lot of free time and a love for virtual pets sites, this one, by many, is considered to be the best.
If you say neopets sucks, I will personally annihalate you with every weapon in my possession.
by Ian December 22, 2003
A game about virtual pets that started in 1999. It was good at first, but around 2002 or so, they started making plushies (offline) and all this merchandise like notebooks, keyrings, etc, and gradually Neopets became all teenie-ish and TNT got gayer.
I dont play Neopets anymore, since july '04.
