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 really fun game back in around 1999-2004 and was favored my people of all ages until it broke away no long ago. Here are a few reasons why it sucks now:

1. Overadvertising. Ads everywhere. One big one on the bottom, one big one on the top, one on the side, and NOW they even have one in their flash game popups!

2. Lies. They freeze your account, and when you ask for it back, they go "Sorry we cannot retrieve it because its been inactive for too long" (that was the excuse they gave me)

3. They are greedy. First it was the Neopets merchandise, didn't work out. Then it was Neopets premium, didn't work out. Then they made sidebars and avatars, didn't work out so they basically retired sidebars and all avatars since none even come out anymore. NOW they have NC Cash Shop and Mall so you can dress your Neopets in clothes. Everything new requires real money. If you don't have real money, they will spare you a free 150 NC to spent on a piece of crap. Too many hassles, advertisement links and ads!!!!

4. Annoying. First it was the game. They keep renaming games from "Whack A Kass" to "Kass Basher", "Whack a Staff Member" to "TNT Staff Smasher" and the "Scratchcard Kiosk" to "Ice SC Kiosk" They even change the old games they were fun. Now their new games take forever to load on dialup (so you better have some good internet) Has stupid annoying music, and have stupid intros that you can't skip and take forever to start the game. Games are now more complicated and more annoying. Doesn't always send score the time you want it to, so you'd have to play the game AGAIN.

4. Ugly interface. Other than the addition of 1090848322 more ads on the page, the interface is ridiculous. I do not need to see my active Neopet everywhere. Go to my items, see my pet's picture two times, go to references, see my pet's picture three times. Is this necessary?! What happened to the simple text links?? Games page is overloaded with images when it could have been that simple four category that it had years ago. Userlookups look disgusting now, you can hardly customize it anymore. They add unnecessary features such as the stupid "intro box" in the the items section which makes it even more cluttered and changed pictures that do not need to be changed.

5. Staff members are corny. They choose the worse jokes for contests, the most stupid and most obvious questions to answer, posts compliments by users but never complaints to fix, and in certain contests, they choose actual pictures taken with a camera instead of nicely done digital art work. My art took longer to do than the person's stupid Hershey bar with a hat on it! They change the Neopets to stupid poses with the fist as if the Neopet is angry (I HATE THIS POSE) and now all the pets look corny and stand the same way.

Don't be surprised by all the retired paint brushes and potions, they obviously want you to spend in their NC shop rather than paint your pet. This website is NOT for kids and is ridiculous! Been there since 2000, and it was fun for about 4-5 years and now it SUCKS. Take my advice and walk away from it.
I stopped playing Neopets because they were being unfair and over advertised everywhere on their pages!

Overall, a horrible addictive game that you will wish you had never known of.

It interrupts your schooling and work (if you're an adult)
The games are the biggest jokes.
The NeoBoards are pack full of show-offs and n00bs
It's so commercial, it's not funny
The staff don't give a shit about you.
It's full of bugs and glitches
If you get frozen for a glitch, it is 1% likely that they will unfreeze you.
It's got enough scammers and spammers to make you scream.

If you like it now, you'll hate it later.
How do I know?
Cause I used to be a Neopian.
I used to love it.
I used to spend countless hours on it.
Until I realised,
"What a waste of time"
Neopets is a load of bullshit.

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.

The site called Neopets is so stupid.
The site Neopets was sooo stupid!!!

Neopets is okay for a while, but after a bit you get tired of it and realize how stupid it was of you to spend 16 hours a day trying to change how a 150x150 pixel looks. The games can be fun for killing time, but if you get too carried away with earning neopoints, it takes away the fun.
Sometimes the neopets staff is good, but usually they aren't. I've had an instance where they have been excellent to me. Someone I knew had managed to get into my account and I emailed. After a while, a nice staff member believed me and restored me access to my acount.
The staff seems to be obsessed, however, with freezing and warning. For instance, if you mention any sort of religion you get frozen or warned, even if you just say something like "I don't eat pork, I'm Jewish" or "I'm a Christian."
Overall, neopets can be fun to play, but don't get addicted to it.
"ME NEOPETS ACCOUNT! *sniffle* ISH FROZEN!!!!!!"
"Dude, deal with it. I've been frozen millions of times."
"BUT I LOST MY SPLIT AISHA!!!! WHAAAAAAAAAA!"
"So? I lost my Fire Draik. I got over it."
"WHO CARES ABOUT YOUR STUPID DRAIK, MY POOR AISHA!!!!!"

Anybody who says neopets suck... I AGREE WITH YA! A once opon a time cool site that has turned horridable(horrible)! It's a site that stole EVERYTHING in it from somewhere else... The pets, games, character(like the fairies), the list goes on...
Their soooooooooo strick on what you type on boards, that you can't have any fun... They'll block "bad" but not "hell" :/
Oh, I've also heard that you can't upload images from your desktop or any file except form the internet. It's EXTREMELY childish, though if you notice, it's a site for teenagers mostly.
Often times you can't post something because it says it's "bad", but there's nothing in it that's actually bad.
I can't tell you everything that's sucks on neopets, but I can tell you that there's a lot.
anybody who actually likes neopets, is either 5 or 6... Or needs a life BIG TIME!
