Guy 2: Told you, you were gonna get fucked.
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.
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"
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.
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.
"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!!!!!"
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 anno...
