The Ultimate Pastime: The NeoPets Chatting Board

by icecream_sundae

It had always been a problem for me to find something to do on NeoPets after I was done with the 'Daily Stuff'. The 'Daily Stuff' consisted of playing three games each of Meerca Chase and Diva Starz, reading the new features, collecting all the free items such as Coltzan's Shrine and Tombola. After that, I was stuck.

None of the games in store at NeoPets could last me for the many hours on I wanted to stay at NeoPets; and though I scoured the Internet, looking for html sites which held nice backgrounds and images to decorate my shop, no amount of searching would last me and even if it did, I always found it boring.

My days in NeoPets remained that way until one day, I decided I would try out the 'Chat Board'. Why hadn't I thought of that before, you might ask. Well, I always thought it a waste of time, chatting with people I would probably never get to meet. Besides, I already had an instant messaging that I would chat with a few school friends. But I was wrong.

I clicked on the big, fat, yellow icon saying 'Chat' and a bunch of other icons appeared in front of me. I immediately clicked on 'General Chat' which appealed to me the most then (now, I prefer 'Role Playing'). I saw tons of chatting boards there. Some had weird titles, while some were true and frank. I clicked on board which had a title which appealed to me and started chatting.

My chatting right there at that moment was more like Hi. I'm new around here. Any tips? which sounds rather corny now that I look back at it, for real chatting has no tips. Immediately, I found myself in a sea of friendly people (with a few bad Neggs here and there) who were looking for someone, or a few people to chat to. I fell in love with the chatting boards and visited them everyday, chatting for hours on end.

This passage here is just for a few awareness tips (one of the few chatting tips there are). First of all, if you see any boards which are obscene or are out to scam people, report them immediately to NeoPets by clicking on The Wall of Shame. If you see someone dissing something like one of your Neofriends, calm down. If you get worked up, most likely you'll make lots of enemies. Instead, just tell that person not to type bad stuff about people politely. But if that doesn't work, you may still report the person. And last of all, trust your instincts. If a board tells you that something isn't right, stay away from it, no matter how tempting it looks.
