What used to be a cool pet site, but now sucks. And here are the top 10 reasons why:


1: Shameless Advertising.
They have 3 advertisements on almost every page.
One on the top, one on the bottem, and one on the side. Advertising things like online dating services, weight loss programs, and phone companies. Plus they have countless sponser games. And even make sponser items (bubble yum, sweet tarts, etc.)

2: Neo Staff favoring certin users.
Let's face it, there's only a handful of people TNT (theneopetsteam) actually give a shit about.
Featheralley, Hrobi, Garret_jaxx (sp?), Hubrids_mansion, Jazz_invinceable , and a coupple others. Thease people will not be iced no matter how many rules they brake.

3: Message boards.
The message board used to be cool... like four years ago. Now they suck. Neopets changed the format to look more professional... and screwed everything up. Completely deleteing the GC (general chat), which used to be cool. Before n00bs took over.

4: Glitches and bugs.
Neopets has countless glitches and bug which they will never fix. I myself have lost well over 15 million in items and np's (example: I lost a SOS while taking it off my pet. Plus I've lost large sums of neopoints countless times while trying to put them into the bank.) And neopets never refunds anything you lost during a glitch... unless you're featheralley of course...

5: Cheaters
Neopets is full of gay ass asain cheaters.
They've made it impossibble for anyone who dosn't cheat to get on a high score list for a game.

6: They're Hypocrits
They'll freeze your account if you post pictures of yourself in which you are slightly imosdestly dressed. And yet they have faeries with their boobs hanging out all over the site, wearing skirts that sure show alot-o-theigh.
They'll freeze you if you mention any achollolic bevrages, and yet they have them as items on their site! *points to a certin item called "red wine" and many other wines*
Noooo cussing. Or else they'll freeeezeee youuuu.
*points to the old maraqua vid with the pirate swearing.... aloso points to the faerie who swears* mmhmmm.

7: Scams
The site is full of people trying to scam other players. Pretty much the only reason guilds exist anymore is for people to host scams.

8: No origional games
Every fuckin game on that site is a ripoff of another game.

9: It's understaffed
They have far too few monitors for the amount of people who use the site.

10: Report Happy Users
People will report you for ANYTHING on that site. And I mean anything. And regardless to what neopets says, no, they DON'T actually check inot the situation. I've been faulsely reported and frozen countless times. If you mearly say something like "I don't like Good Charlotte, I prefer Dropkick Murphys." ... someone WILL report you, and if enough twits report for it, you WILL be frozen.

And those are the top ten reason why neopets sucks.
Though if you still like to play regardless of those reasons here's the top 10 tips on how NOT to get iced
1: Don't have anything on your user look-up
2: Don't talk to ANYONE
3: Don't be in a guild
4: Don't have a pet
5: Don't play any games
6: Don't share a computer with anyone or anything
7: Don't buy anything from any shop
8: Don't log on from ANY other computer
9: Don't leave for 3 years then log back into your account
10: Don't get anything from the money tree.

The End
(please forgive the large amount of spelling and grammer errors.)

A site ive been playing for several years. It used to be excellent, but then prices have gone WAY too high, it is too oversencored, has many n00bs, and is addicting, you often get frozen for no reason, and took over my life. Lately all theyve cared about is money and advertisement. Escpecially since theyve sold it to viacom. Im ashamed to be addicted and still play it :(

Neopets. I'm sure you see it EVERYWHERE now. On TV commercials, in stores, on people flippin SHIRTS!

Neopets was, at one time, a FUN site. I'll admit it still is a bit fun but what do you get in the long run. A bunch of pixels you wasted days and days, even YEARS on?

Many, many, MANY years ago Neo was a site run by caring people who actually took notice of users and got to know them. The mods were nice and understanding, I remember even being FRIENDS with some mods!

That all changed though. Little by little Adam and Donna sold out. Finally, in June of 2005 they sold themselves to Viacom. The users might have well sold their souls to the devil.

Ads popped up EVERYWHERE. Now, it is worse than EVER before. There's an ad on the bottom of the screen, on the top of the screen and on BOTH sides of the screen. You can go to a page and a ad will pop up on your screen.

The rules also became SUPER SUPER SUPERRRR strict. Before you could at least say Damn! and What the Hell! or That Sucks. But NOOOOOO you say suck and your frozen. And what gets to me is that dating and religion and swearing is STRICTLY prohibited but there are ads for Eharmony and things saying WHAT THE HELL and ads for buying a limited edition bible! WHAT KIND OF JOKE IS THAT???

And the NC MALL. More like Viacoms Money Maker Central. People actually PAY for fake money to use on pixels so your neopet can look like a fruitcake! Yay!

Yes people ACTUALLY USE IT. They waste money on this crap. And then Viacom freezes them without a second thought. They don't care, just as long as they get their money, they don't care. Its alll corporate. VIACOM OWNS YOUR SOUL if you play neopets and buy their crap, then they have you right where they want you.

Nothing really happens anymore. They recently released an avatar. Their first one in hmmm..let's see...3 FLIPPIN YEARS! They've really let go of stuff. They waste all their time freezing people, making new demented looking pet colors and making items that NO ONE WITH A LIFE IS GOING TO BUY.

And what REALLY upsets me is how they revamped the site COMPLETELY. One day its nice and cozy the next its high tech and my frickin neopet is EVERYWHERE. They do that so we can stare at its naked body and waste money on PIXELS TO COVER UP ITS NAKED PIXELS! Wow! Good idea viacom!

And don't even get me started on what they did to the pets. At one point the pets were fun and individual, now they ALL LOOK EXACTLY THE SAME. And not only are they identical but they are UGLY. Why should I waste my time on ugly pets?

And the boards. More like N00b Central. Its full of illiterate freaks. And the people who aren't illiterate are super rich, snobby users who think they are better than you. Yeah if you want to waste all your time savin up NPs and Avatars and thinking they're smarter than you and then get frozen and cry about then yeah, we'll see who the winner is then.

Another name for the boards...Scammer Place. Scammers are EVERYWHERE. The boards are full of scammers, cheaters, liars, CGers, (Cookie Grabbers, they recently developed a new program where people can steal your cookies. They are STILL on the site, an example of how many unsolved glitches and bugs there are that neo is too lazy to fix)idiots who don't have a life but think they do (a.k.a 'rich and respected' neopians), and illiterate n00bs. Throw in some 8 year olds and a bunch of fan girls and prep/emos along with a bunch of flamers and report happys and thats the boards in a nutshell. Yup! HOW FUN!

Neo also has a staff of lazy fat asses who sit back at their computer and click the freeze button.

Don't even get me STARTED on the staff. You say "Oh yeah, I like the color of my pet a lot, but not really the basic ones." and some n00b will show up and go "0MG MI P3T 1Z A B@SIC C0L0R!!! 0MG U S000 M3@N, R3PORT3D." And neo will freeze you.

I was frozen for saying date. Thats right, I said "oh yeah, we should decide on what date to do that on" . They froze me. EVERYTHING I had saved up was gone. I must say, I was addicted but now I realize how stupid I was, wasting my time on PIXELS!

GET OFF OF IT WHILE YOU CAN. I was addicted too, I would spend my WHOLE SUMMER locked in the office, playing Neopets ALL DAY.

There is a whole world out there people. There is NO POINT to Neopets. You spend all your time playing completely stupid games and buying dumb paint brushes for your pets. ButWHY? So you can show off to your little neo friends who are probably 40 year old living in their moms basements???

Its a waste of time and you WILL get frozen. Neo was once fun, if you can look past all the ads, scamming, crappy staff, dumb games, stupid looking neopets then yeah maybe it's fun for you.
Neopets4life1234567: 0MG 2DAY I BOT A PIRATE PAINTBRUSH. IT WAS LIEKKK TEN MILLION BUT ITS OKAY CUZ I JUST SPEND MY HOLE LIFE SAVIN UP 4 DUMB STUFF LIKE THIS. YAHHHH DUSN'T MY CHOMBY LOOK PURRRFECT?

Me: You need a life

Neopets4life1234567: I HAVE ONE. I LOVEEEEEE NEOPETS.

*6 months later*

Neopets4life1234567wazfrozen: OMG TNT FROZE M333 NOOOOO! DAT WAS MY HOLE LIFE! I CAN'T B3LI3V3 DEY DID THATTTTTT!!!!!!!

Me: Yup, thats what neo gives you after years and years AND YEARS of devotion. After playing games and putting hardwork into your account they freeze you. You should get a life, it really helped me. Afterall, Neo is built on an empire of corporate and pixels.

Neopets is a virtual pet website that used to be kind of fun and really addicting, but now it is swarmed by mentally ill n00b seven year olds begging for "neopoints" and boyfriends. Also, the owners completely sold out, so now all these little kids who have never heard of the website walk into Limited Too (OMFG d@tZ m4I fAvRriT sToR$RE!!!112) and beg mommy for a kyoot plushyy!! There's a new service where people with money will be able to do all the fun stuff the normal people can't.
Like I said, it's really addictive. Once you start, you may need The Patch.

A virtual pet site that started in 1999. Its main objective was for the user to adopt up to four pets of whatever species was available and feed/play with/train them. The currency you used to buy items on the site was called neopoints which could be earned through games, trade, shops, random events, or sexual e-favors to the staff. Thus everyone became a money hungry whore who played games 24/7 because a paintbrush is worth more than their soul and/or social life.

Games include snake, tetris, brick, pong, memory, and bastardized versions of poker, blackjack, horse races, and slot machines. All of which are sure to cause a gambling problem in your child before they reach puberty.

After you waste a month or so playing this (not really) cleverly disguised shit you can go buy 10,000 neopoints worth of imaginary crap that will never appear in your inbox anyway because the site is riddled with glitches no one ever fixes.

You also had the option of communicating with pedophiles, rapists, 14 year old girls, and other assorted neopet members via the neoboards. There were a few different boards such as Trading and Shops where you'd advertise your overpriced shit and hope some 8 year old would buy it, the Quests board where you'd beg people to give you their shit that you needed "for a quest", the Guild board that ran on shameless self promotion and weirdos trying to get you to join their cult, the Roleplay board where you could pretend to be an angsting 13 year old with an alcoholic father or a vampire, and of course the general chat where you could cyber with a horny, balding, middle aged porn addict who says there a 16 year old blonde female. The general chat was taken down after the staff dislodged their heads from their asses for two seconds to see what the hell was going on there.

Now everyones on the Evil Things And Monster Sightings board where the majority of users complain about emo, lables, whos goth and whose not, emo, not being a conformist, making fun of conformists, emo, how much they hate "greenday", emo, complaining about "preps" and "posers" even though they hate lables, and ummmmm... Emo. Basically its a magical land filled with hypocrisy and bad grammar.

The basic format of the site has changed dramatically over the years also. It used to be pretty basic with no ads or fancy flashing bullshit. Now in order to access the shops you must have a flash plug in that not everyones computer supports (especially if you live in the ghetto) and put up with 3 annoying bannars every second you're on the frikken site.

Neopets.com also has a strict set of rules to follow if you don't want your account to be frozen or "iced" as I think they're calling it these days. They basically consist of bullshit only idiots would attempt, fall for, or get caught doing. If you actually report anyone for breaking the rules you are a whore.

To sum it up neopets was cute for 3 seconds. Then the communists/capitolists took over.
Neopets began sucking your mother when they sold themselves to the advertising agencies.

November 15th 1999, Neopets begins as a harmless little site where you raised you pets and the site was clean of anything bad. The staff cared about the users and so one. Now Neopets isn't such a safe place now on the internet. The entire staff has set up the site and rules almost similar to a communist nation. And the owner's corruption and greed will lead to the site's destruction.

First off, Neopets has many rules. Some keeps the site clean, while others tear it apart. One of the rules is do not discuss religion or political veiws on the site. Now if I'm not mistaken, a thing about communism was sensorship. Not only are you not allowed to talk religion/polotics, but certtain words posted can easily get you warned or iced. When you get warned it's by theneopetsteam (The sites secret police). The warning of course is an automatic thing which is corruted now, so you don't even need to say something wrong. You can get warned for posting "Hilary Duff looks like a Yurble".

Second, the site also freezes you if they talk bad about them or TNT (short for theneopetsteam). They have changed the site, making it almost equal for every user. Though sometimes it's not fair. Like when the staff got rid off glowing and shadow fonts. When they did that (Because others using different browses couldn't see) it upseted a lot of people, but a few days later, they have a new option that lets you disable fonts, making a user see normal black fonts. This isn't fair to those that had a nice font because the staff could have done that and keep the glow/shadow fonts.

Third, going back to TNT andunfair rules. Basicly TNT is the secret police of the site. You break a rule you get iced/warned, but there are loop holes in the site rules that people abuse (Like me) and then those who follow the rules and stuff were known to be iced. The term "iced" is what happens when your account is disabled. If you are iced, you can never be defrosted unless you are friends with the staff members. In fact, about 25% of iced accounts are people who done nothing wrong, but the automatic monitors (TNT) also uses loop holes and freeze you. This has been done so much that some people make new accounts and add on to the counter (The ammount of users on the site, frozen and active). More accounts filling the counter, the more the staff gets paid by sponsers. And the make the matter of using your time to on the site to pretty much give money to some lazy bastard, TNT has created a number of "hidden rules" these rules aren't shown in the Neorules, but are used as an excuse for giving out warnings or freezing people. A.so with the hidden rules and loops in the systems TNT will most likely give you a false warning (One time I got warned for "spamming" ,something I've never done) for giving advice or something like rating a picture (By the way, there is no rule against that).

And something everyone should know, reasons Neopets is similar to a communist nation. Most things on the site were made to make things equal. This includes:

Item codes: You buy an item and you not only haggle, but you must type in a code too
Avatars: Some avatars are easy for all to get, while others aren't
Pets: Everyone gets the equal maximum pets you can keep (Max: 4), but the owner has five
Items: Due to avatars, items are raised at a high price now, making only those who have played the site from the begining get them

So there you have it, the secret of Neopets (it may be confusing though)

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:
Multiplayer armada:
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.
