LACUNA

Sites, Guides, and Extras Right at Your Fingertips

Welcome to Lacuna Directory. A directory run by me, Chris, which aims to provide the visitor with up-to-date site listings and information. Lacuna Directory lists over 2,000 sites and plays host to a number of other features. Lacuna Directory re-opened on December 26th, 2012, solely to serve the visitor. If you have any concern with or comments about the directory do not hesitate to voice them by neomailing me.

Almost any site can be listed at this directory. Only sites with stolen content or that otherwise break the Neopets Rules will not be listed here. Sites under construction, undergoing a revamp, or written in a language other than English are all fine to get listed here at Lacuna Directory. To get listed, just click the large button in the sidebar. All the recommended sites are determined impartially and the standards used to determine them are publicly available. Do you have a suggestion to improve Lacuna? I'm always open to feedback and opinions about the directory. Don't hesitate to let me know!
