28th April 2000
- It's a Saturday and we are still slaving away :( Anyway, we fixed a big slowdown-type-bug in
the marketplace so now there should be less times when you buy an item and don't get the NP.
- We have made all pets unlimited edition for now. There will be more limited edition pets coming
in the future, but due to popular demand you can now adopt Peophins!
27th April 2000
- Cool new game! - Why not try The Great Neopet Hunt. Your pet is hiding somewhere on the net and
its up to you to find him (or her).
- Added a new pet - the Tigren! Also we have another one on the way thanks to our new artist
- All the auctions that are currently 'in progress' will be finished by the end of today. There were
so many that we couldn't process them all fast enough :)
26th April 2000
- Things are starting to get good now, we have two more artists working here (yes we will
update the Neocam soon), and we have nearly finished the transition to our new super-database! The site
will be faster soon.
- I have stopped people from adding HTML to the message boards. Too many people were abusing
this and automatically refreshing to shops and items, so sorry it's been taken away.
- Auctions are running a lot faster now.
- Oooh we got voted the top fun site in Australia :) Nice to see we are being noticed!
25th April 2000
- Fixed the Auctions so you don't get pages of Closed auctions any more.
21st April 2000
- Nearly got the new database finished! Watch this space.
- Stopped people from cheating with the shops buy getting people to buy things they don't want.
- Donna added a new Pet Spotlight.
20th April 2000
- Why not get a Quest from the faeries??
19th April 2000
- Possibly the cutest pet in the world has been added today, the Shoyru. Get one now!!!
- Uggh. A Neocam. Donna wanted to do this but we all object. Look at how ugly we really are.
- Have you seen the current Pet Spotlight - why not write us a story
about your pet, a description, and possibly a picture and we may put him or her up there!
18th April 2000
- The Frogstomp is here!!! Why not adopt one today.

all the entries. Its up to you to decide which designs will become real Neopets. Click

- Oooooh a new game! Check out our new Tic Tac Toe game now.
- Meet FrogStomp. This little guy was sent in by Iriss as part of the Create a Pet
competition. We thought he was so cute that he had to become a pet. Keep checking back as you
will be able to have your very own FrogStomp shortly!
16th April 2000
- Easter Neggs are now around the site.. Luxury gifts for your pet!

Oracle so we can triple that number, so bear with us!

- No wonder we get so many technical problems! 1,300 players on the site at one time!!! Check
our our new Max Players Ever number on the Whos Online? page.

- If you live in the Glendale area (California), and fancy working for a cool, fun Internet site
then why not email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and send us your resume.
We need programmers, artists, support people and people who have good ideas!
- Remember! The Easter bunny will never ask you for your password... if a fake bunny contacts you
then please notify us. Cheating bunnies are not welcome on Neopets!
13th April 2000

is always really fast!

2nd April 2000

- We have finally left our offices and are planning to come over to the US to our new offices,
only a few days left. We hope to have lots of new stuff coming! The main thing we will be working
on are new Shockwave games, and the Trading Cards, Battle Dome and Theme Parks!
- IMPORTANT! Please bear with us, we are currently in the process of relocating our office
and hiring some new staff so we can add great new things to Neopets MUCH faster than before :) We
won't be able to get much done over the next few days, but keep watching this space for news.
