A chilidish yet addicting website. You create pets, take care of them, make neopoints, the sign for neopets currency. In the old days, people could spell and were nice. Now, it is infested with n00bs.
Neopets was Ok untill the n00bs came. *scarred for life*

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.

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.

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 :(

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!

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.

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.
