kalux got a bunch of new links, i guess?

26/6/2018

I'm probably, like, 2 months late to knowing that the *restricted* images are no longer restricted! If you don't know, a certain image-hosting website locked a bunch of images and asked the owners to pay money to get them back. It sucked because a lot of great inactive sites were now useless :( But it's over! The evil has been defeated!

Anyway, check out some great sites that are back to normal viewing mode:

Css {For:You;}
Neopets coding tips, tricks, articles from doubleSTANDARD

the twilight edits weren't for nothing!

19/6/2018

Here's a little blast from the past of graphic-dedicated sites run by kids years ago. You can tell by the images! Imagine if that age-range was still heavily present on neo today. I would definitely not be on here if there were Jake Paul icons... Stranger Things icons would be interesting, though. Ohhh, and Riverdale. Wow. Imagine the guilds. I need to stop haha.

And on a little side note, does anyone remember when Twilight was so ubiquitous that Neopets put Twilight filters on the boards? Twilight changed to 'My Little Pony', 'Eclipse' to 'Toy Story', and so on. Like, it sounds like a joke but that really happened. Amazing.

Another quick sidenote: anyone wanna talk about how good this petpage is? lol.

errrr ...

22/5/2018

I'll save you the weird "sorry I disappeared" you hear a lot on Neopets petpages. Rest assured it doesn't mean my updates are slowing, Kalux is still being updated and I'm still getting links for new sites!

That being said, I really wish they'd add a "Replied" feature on Neomail. With the state of Neopets lately we've got a looooong while to go ...

Anyway, as promised, here are some of the newest sites I'm very excited for:

Eris

Eris is a new button request and tutorial site. I'm particularly excited for up-to-date button tutorials as a certain image-hosting website absolutely destroyed any semblance of older tutorials. Their buttons are actually so adorable, too! Suss out their portfolio here to get a feel for their style.

A Plushie Paradise

With a gorgeous layout from the wonderful girls at Mahou, this pet directory is so detailed and irresistible to look at. You can tell theres a lot of love for plushie pets here. They even go the extra mile to list people who are seeking plushie pets, plushie collectors, and plushie items!

Sweet-ish Delights

This layout is so good. Beyond the Batter has a similar theme - they're both so classic and adorable. I remember these types of layouts, in a more "cutesy" fashion, being so widespread across adoptables sites. Especially pixels. Anyway, while there isn't much content up, this site already looks so promising from whats already shown. I'm excited to see where it heads.

A small catch-up

1/4/2018

Took a bit of a break from this site. I thought I should give a quick catch-up on the latest sites I've listed at Kalux Directory that are no longer updated. My next post will be about active sites!

Leaky Cauldron

Look at their selection of Chocolate Frog Cards! I was actually disappointed I hadn't seen these earlier - the layout and adoptables are just so nice. But it seems that the owner was only compiling pixels previously made for Harry Potter themed guilds into a site, put them up for free use, then didn't extend efforts to advertise outside of these guilds.



Dreamy

When I first stumbled on Dreamy I was surprised that their resources aren't used a lot. They're fantastic. However, it appears the owner opened the site but didn't end up advertising as much, which is a shame.

EDIT 22/5/2018: I've recieved mail that the owner is working on updating again.



Pokemon Oddities & The Pokemon Center

I've seen Pokemon Oddities around Neopets for some time but all the links to it were broken. I've finally found the correct page! They have adorable pixelled Pokemon. The page contains some broken images but there are still a lot of Pokemon there.

The Pokemon Center has similar stuff but with a wider range + animated graphics!

If you've come across any site with content (updated or not) that you continue enjoy lets chat!

I found some progress bars!

5/3/2018

The only progress bars on Neopets I've found so far are at /~interogueroneu. If I find anymore I'll add it to this post. It's no longer updated but there are plenty of counters there, ranging from categories like Paint Brushes to Avatars.

These increase by 10%. To change the % from 90 you replace the 90 in the image URL to 10, 20, 30, 40, etc.

sporks are god-tier cutlery. discuss.

25/2/2018

One thing I didn't realise until I started a link directory was that there is a plethora of adoptable art on neopets. Majority neopets related. Some sock puppet related. But my biggest surprise was spork-related.

Milokittykookiekat, wherever you are in the world, I know it's been 10 years since Milo's Spork Shack - but please open so I can request a spork. I don't know why, but I need one.

the neopets police

24/2/2018

I vaguely remember The Neopets Police - I think it was just an agreement that if you saw someone steal something you'd do something about it? I'm seeing their banners everywhere but they lead to a default petpage. I like these banners. I think that would be very useful for UFA/UFT pets or Obelisk War & Altador Cup supporting graphics. Currently org css has some that say "not for trade or adoption".


If anyone wanted to make similar banners, I've left the code below:

mourning pixel buttons

20/2/2018

I can't tell why people stopped making these buttons. Are they too steeped in nostalgia? too tedious? I wouldn't know, I just think they're adorable. Maybe there isn't enough people on neopets specialising in pixels? But Confectionery and Scribble are doing an excellent job! Anyway, here are some of my favorites:

the magic of disney

18/2/2018

I actually audibly gasped when I found this site. I remember looking through it when I was so little and had a huuuuge crush on Zac Efron. The Magic of Disney can be found at /~2fruitpunch

Ciao.
