Pet Central is
the first thing you see when you log onto NeoPets. You should know all about
it and understand what all of the buttons mean.
Let's start with the top row of buttons. The one with all of the pictures.
The first button is a picture of a Snorkle and says Quick Ref under it. If you
click here, you can see your NeoPets and their stats. You can also see if they
have a disease or if they are hungry. The second button is a Chia that says
Abilities. If you click on this button you will see a picture of your current
pet. It will say how many abilities he/she has. There also is a link to see
all of the abilities there are. After that button is a picture of a Techo. It
also says Description. Description is your pets description. When people visit
your pet's info page they can read about your pets. Descriptions are fun to
make and lets people know about your pet. The fourth button links to your trophy
case. It shows you how many trophies you have and how many trophies your pets
have. The button after that is one with a blue Lupe. If you click on this you
can go to your pets page. Here you can edit of view your NeoPet's page. Pet
pages are fun to design and can tell people lots of information about your pets.
The button with the apple on it links to a page that tells about feeding your
pets. It tells you about the Shop Wizard and the Soup Kitchen. If you are new
to NeoPets there is also a tutorial. The seventh button has two NeoPet Plushies
with the words Your Items over it. This will take you to your items box where
you can play, feed, or equip your pet. Next, is a button that will take you
to your NeoHome. Your NeoHome is where your pets live. NeoHomes are expensive
but are really fun! The last button links to the Beauty Contest. The Beauty
Contest is a contest where you make the prettiest picture of your pet you can.
You can also vote for other pets you think are nice.
The next part of Pet Central is the text part on the left side. It mainly
tells about some games you can play and lets you in on some of the excitement
on NeoPets. To the left of it is a picture of a Chia jumping out of a box. Here
you can send a pet to a friend and refer them to NeoPets. There is also a link
to the page telling about the referral program. Referring people is fun and
can get you lots of nifty prizes, including Codestones, paint brushes, and Neopoints!
Under that part is a picture of a red Uni and Dr_Death. This leads to the
Adoption Center and the place where you abandon pets. If you want to adopt pets
there are usually hundreds of pets in the adoption center to choose from. If
you want to get rid of your pet (=*() then you will also want to go here. To
the right of this is a list of current competitions. These competitions are
fun to enter and compete in. The first contest listed is Pet Spotlight. Pet
Spotlight is a contest where you write about your NeoPet and the best story
wins. You can also include a picture of your NeoPet. The second contest is Site
Spotlight. Site Spotlight is for the best pet's page. Next, there is the Caption
Contest. If you click on this you will see a picture of something. The point
is to make up a funny caption that goes along with the picture. You can also
vote for your favorite caption. After that is the Storytelling Contest. To enter
that you need to make the next paragraph in the story. The NeoPets team starts
the story and you use your creativity to make the rest! The fifth link is the
Beauty Contest. Create a picture of your pet at her finest and enter her/him.
You can also vote for other pets you think are the prettiest. Next is the Poems
link. This has ORIGINAL poems that other users have written. Next to that is
Pictures. Here you can see the Art Gallery full of pictures that users have
drawn of their NeoPets or other NeoPet related things. The last link is the
Mystery Pic Contest. When you visit this page you will see a very close picture
of something. If you guess it you can win neat prizes and get a trophy!
The last part of Pet Central is the How To Draw Your NeoPet section.
If you would like to know how to draw a NeoPet, there are lessons that tell
you how to draw them on that page. This can help you have a picture in the art
gallery or the beauty contest.
I hope you now have a better understanding of Pet Central and everything that
is in it!! Good luck out there, you Newbies.
