Quote of the Week


"I cannot possibly express how much I have suffered. Yesterday I experienced a cough; the day before, a sore throat; in short, symptoms alarmingly synonymous with those of a cold."


Designing Petpages



It is your first time creating a petpage (or second, third, fourth, or fiftieth) and you want it to be stunning. But you do not know what makes for a good petpage design? It isn't all about flashy graphics and good knowledge of graphic programs. The truth is that there are a lot of minor things you can do to enhance the visual impact of your petpage and make the visitor's experience more enjoyable! I have compiled a list of tips to help you avoid common mistakes of many first time designers. This article consists of three categories including the building blocks, the content, and...

Myncies: The Truth



What is the rumor that I previously spoke of? My dearest reader, I thought you would never ask. It has many terrible facets and it concerns my species, the Mynci, and our eating habits. There are so many misconceptions I must remedy. Let me begin at once. 1) The Dreadful Banana Nonsense. Call me snobby, but I abhor bananas. You ask yourself, “How can this be? Thana is a Mynci and all Myncies love bananas!” Well, my reader, it is my intention to quash any of your preconceived notions about my species. Indeed, I am a Mynci but I can assure you that I will never eat a banana...

Economics of Daily Dare Prizes


The Neopets economy is more violently fluid than you would expect from a game, and unlike many other online sites the whole system is very similar to a simplistic real world setting.

"The Meaning of Beauty" by one_two_one
I had always been a pretty weird Poogle. In fact, all my family used to call me Miptie the Mynci, rather than Miptie the Poogle, because I was always doing such strange things and breaking rules. Not bad rules, just the odd playing with my make-up when I was supposed to be in bed or eating between meals. As I said, they weren't that bad...

"The Metal Box of DOOM!" by 7splat52
It's really, really creepy how your SDB enlarges to fit the items you chuck in. I mean, really, have you ever heard of a growing box? I was once trapped in my owner's SDB. I am so lucky that we clean it out every couple months, but it really was petrifying. *shudders* Now I'm using big words. *counts* I must have used, like, TWO words that had more than three syllables! My...
