Neopets WAS fun, addicting, kind, caring and overall a good website where you play fairly, explore worlds, buy items from shops, get a pet, paint your pet and chat on the boards.
Now it is filled with no-good staff trying to make money with pointless merchandise and games. For example, they make plushie and games in where you get them you get a code you enter to get some rare item or website theme. WOW
Here are the main problems with Neopets, the example are given below:
1. They "freeze" you for nothing or being too rich.
2. The staff are too obsessed in money
3. The Boards
4. They dont care about you, only themselves and thier friends.
5. Just dont play it.
1. Yes, I have been frozen about 3 times.
On my first account, I was frozen for having 1 million nps that I was saving and they said I scammed someone.
Next I made another one with a cloud Jubjub
which I worked hard for the pb.If you didnt know already Jubjubs
are wierd little fluffballs with teary eyes. I recieved a neomail to go to a scam website, and I refused. I made a board not to go to it. Then some stupid idiotic report-happy reported me of scamming when I clearly said NOT to go!!
One of the reasons why I think she reported me is because I had a cloud jubjub and I was a newbie, and she was playing for 8 and a half years and still have a red Lupe
My third account got suspended for no reason either, I was lending an avatar item only if someone lent me another avatar item, and the same report happy reported me for scam, maybe because I was a newbie and I had a draik, but I got it fair and square in a random event! She still had that red lupe, level 1, and now that girl is on my death list >:)
2. Yes, the staff are. They recently made the "Neomall" with "neocash", a neopian currency which you have to pay for in Dollars, and all of the merchandise is sold in America, which is unfair to someone who plays in the UK or Australia.
That means you have to pay for customizable clothes for your pet, and even stuff for your neohome!
Also they made "Neopets premium" which allows people to get the best of of Neopets, but BOOHOO, You have to pay for it, IN DOLLARS!!!
3. The boards used to be fun, but now they suck. They are filled with STUPID REPORT HAPPIES (See number 1)that report you for nothing, even for saying you need something for a quest and you will pay them back or when you say "W4zzup" and they always think your a n00b.
Talking about n00bs, they are little pesky people that beg for stuff until they annoy you to death and you give give them it. E.G:
Noob: G1v3 m3 4 p41nTbrUsh
Me: Sorry, I cant afford one right now.
Noob: 0H your3 s0 m3an! I 4m g0In to r3p0rt U!
Yeah, they type like that.
4. They only care about their accounts, and they dont freeze them no matter how many rules they break, and you are only allowed to have 4 pets? The staff members have unlimited pets AND Painbrushes!
1: Hi I play neopets, its so great! I found a codestone!
2:They froze me...
2: Dont say that I didnt tell you so!
1: Shut up you freak! OOHH! I found a pirate pb!!
Two years later...
Neopets: This account has been frozen for being too rich, saying you like <insert website name here> better than neopets and not buying neocash!!
2: I told you so...
1: Yeah but I found a better website!
2: Hey I like that website too!
1 month later...
1 (looking at Neopets homepage, with big letters in red saying BUY NOW! NEOOLLARS! IF YOU DONT BUY ANY YOULLE GET FROZEN!!!):I cant believe I used to play this crap...
3 years later...
Neopets has gone broke, the staff are in jail for money-making schemes, adam has commited suicide and the whole website has been shut down for eternity!!
*War stop immediently, world hunger has stopped and global warming has been a thing of the past*
It was neopets that created all the crisis!
Neopets should be CANCELLED!!
1) An online game with cute little monsters. Originally was pretty good, but was ruined by commercialism and is now WAY overcensored.
1) I hate the way neopets is now. I can't even type "please do not bash people based on their sexual orientation".
a pretty fun virtual game. But now people are being frozen for saying things on the neoboards like " is anyone giving up a chomby to the pound" which is a perfectly non-offensive post. Then the neopets team will come along and say "you have been frozen for trying to steal peoples pets." Tell Adama Powell he can go fuck his asparagus chias for all i care. And i hate report-happy people.
Person who posted this message:" will someone give me a (insert nameof item here) for a quest?"
Report-happy person: " reported for scamming"
A website that is often "down for maintenance" or generally fucked up by numerous glitches. Instead of admitting their own mistakes they will just freeze you. Neopets use to be cool until they fucked everything up....
WOW! I was just frozen for no reason! FUCK! Now I will mail neopets and not even get a response!
It was nice in the beginning, but then a corporation came along, bought Neopets.com, and killed the site. Apparently the creators may quit because of all of these stupid adverts and stoof.
Neopets! Give me back my soul so I may sell it to the Devil! (He's nicer...)
Neopets Used to be cool 3 years ago in 2001. Now, in 2004, it is horrible.
You can't buy anything from the main shops, because they put too few items out at a time, and too many users grab them before you can even begin to haggle. The shops are almost always empty. The restock times are random, and not every 8 minutes like they claim, but more often once an hour or LESS.
New players can't hope to make enough neopoints to enjoy playing or afford anything good, and if anyone discovers a way to make neopoints the staff will destroy it, as they feel no one should be able to have a lot of neopoints.
The wars are pointless, and pet gets sick after one battle and can't fight in the battledome anymore when sick. The cures are too expensive, except the healing springs, so you have to wait half an hour to even try to heal.
Lastly, you are supposed to have a virtual pet, but in fact you don't get to do anything with them except paint them or battle, and only the rich in Neopoints can afford to pay to make their pets stronger. You can not gain skills or get anything by using your neopet, so the game is now mostly just frustrating and pointless. Go play runescape instead, it is a fun game you can actually play.
Bugs they won't fix:
known bug- if you block the opponent from moving, and only you can move, you win right? WRONG! The game ends, doesn't tell you who won, and the opponent who can't move wins. Neopets will not fix this and will not reply to users. They have a screw you attitude for players, and obviously hate everything but making money from sponsors and merchandise, they have become evil. They make games you can't win, but they don't tell you they are rigged. Latest example: Test your strength. The jackpot is supposedly Jackpot : 190,583,500 NP, but in fact no bank account can hold over 40 million, so it is not possible to win. But every day thousands try, not knowing they are just wasting thier NP on something they can't win. Do you want your children playing on a site that does this? Neopets needs competition from a user-responsive site that actually makes playing fun and rewarding.
The largest, most successful virtual pet website on the internet. If you are going to go to neopets, be prepared to be bombarded by Capitalism, and idiocy. If you choose to wander into their chat boards heed this warning. Your eyes may be bleed at the horrible illiteracy displayed on this site. If you are an anglophile, then you will most certainly die.
Nothing can prepare you for the horror of the example I will soon type.
WARNING IF YOU ARE AN ANGLOPHILE, YOU WILL DIE AFTER READING THIS!
Still wanting to go on? WARNING! COMPLETE STUPIDTY AHEAD!
This is your final WARNING!
boyz n gurlz chat!
dos n e 1 no how to get a paintbrush
lolzzzzzzzz i hav a bf at skool. i luv boyz. my boi friend is sooooo hot-neopets user.
A website where you work very, very hard to build up a bunch Neopoints so you can take care of your virtual pet. You can also use these neopoints to buy items. Then, once you have a lot of money, and really good items, you get frozen and have to start all over again!
Yes, I finally got frozen for legitally playing Neopets. Score!
