Only On Neopets! - Part 2
|Description: Neopets is truly the only game site where people sometimes loathe the games, but play them anyway! Sometimes, they're after trophies. Sometimes, they're after avatars. I think it's amusing that the avatar and trophy collectors spend upwards of 100 hours trying to master an exasperating game in order to reach a score that will end up on that game's high score list. Only a Neopian would spend 100 hours on a game that he or she hates!|
|Week - 721|

|Week - 729|
Does Neopets Stay With You Throughout The Day?
|Description: Inspired by my elation, I wondered if other players were affected by Neopets as much as I am.

In it, I've listed some of the funniest ways to create and dress up our pets, and given the range of silly and comical wearables that exist on here, it was really easy to write.|
|Week - 738|
All The Items We're Dreaming For!
|Description: Inspired by this idea, I thought it would be interesting to canvass the Neoboards and ask the people there what items THEY would like to own. What items are clearly desired, but also nonexistent and overdue? I got many interesting replies!|

Gross Foods That Aren't Gross At All!
|Description: I don't think many of the Gross Foods look gross at all! Some items seem so normal and commonplace that I'm left scratching my head, wondering what exactly is so gross about them. I would gladly plunk down a few dollars to buy them in real life, and take a few thoughtful bites just to see what they taste like. I'm probably not the only curious player, either!|
|Week - 742|
Does Neopets Attract A Certain Type Of Player?
|Description: No matter who I chat with on the Neoboards, I'm always struck by their excellent qualities.

I began to realize that the Neopets website attracts a certain kind of player, one that has enthusiasm, imagination, and positivity.|
|Week - 743|
Reasons To Downsize Your Pets!
|Description: I realized that my hope for future pets was being hampered by the fact that I already had 20 pets. I decided to give away 3 pets to random people on the Pound Neoboard, and reserved my 3 Royals for my closest Neofriends. That means I only own 14 pets right now, and I'm truly relieved! |
|Week - 744|
All The Backgrounds We're Looking Forward To!
|Description: Inspired by the thought of having new Backgrounds someday, I thought I'd write this article! It lists all of the Backgrounds I've been longing for since 2007, when customization became a reality. Maybe the TNT artists will read this article and agree to create some of these suggestions. |
