to xenite's guild website
You have come across the official website of a neopets related & multi themed guild called Xenite! We are semi-literate, active, chatty and friendly and strive to provide fun and good quality content, activities and graphics for our members to enjoy.
Xenite is a very unique and established guild. We are proud to say that we have been around for nearly one and a half years now, as we first opened on 30th November 2011!
On our guild website you can find information about our guild, what we are all about, what sort of things we have to offer to you, our rules, information about our member ranks, a section for new members, advertising information and more. You can also find all our pages we have made for our members enjoyment on our portal.
We hope you enjoy being a member of Xenite, or if you are considering joining we would be glad to have you join us!
4th May 2013
Hello all! I am proud to say that the guild's Tutorials and Resources Page
has finally been revamped! There is a brand new layout, I've changed the way everything was set up, also added some new content and there is still more new content to come soon so keep an eye out (:
Also, the activities page is currently getting revamped as well. This should be all done sometime within the next few days.~Katie
Ah the rules section, don't worry we don't have too many and even so they aren't unreasonable. Most of these you pick up just by instinct, but just in case I included them down below:TNT:
Follow all TNT rules please.Active:
Please be active, what's a guild without active members? However we do not require you to be on 24/7 as we realize that their is more to life than Neopets. We just hope that you will come to our guild message board to introduce yourself and to chat when you can, as that is part of the reason most people join a guild is to chat and make friends, and we are a very chatty guild.Respect:
It is important to show other members respect, and we are a no drama guild. This means, no drama on our boards please. If you have an issue with another member, please neomail one of our council members or deal with it through neomail. Also please don't join the guild for a day and suddenly leave, it's quite annoying and disrespectful to the members and owners. If you do feel you really need to leave, please just post a quick message explaining why or neomail one of the council members. Also, any type of scamming is not tolerated. Pretty much, anything you think is disrespectful, please don't do it.SPAM:
No spam please, it's annoying and pointless. It's okay if your answering someone in only a few words because that is all that is necessary for what you are replying to, but we don't want messages that just say things like 'hi' or 'anyone online_ ' or 'ok' as they take up space and can easily be avoided. Instead, you can type something like 'Hello, how is everyone today? Is anyone online at the moment?' or 'Okay talk to you soon, bye!' That, however is fine :).Literacy:
Please be as literate as possible, we don't mind smileys or the occasional brb, lol etc as long as they are not over-used. However it would be great if we could still read what you are trying to type. LYKE I WUZ RLLY GOIN 2 TAK 2 U, just shows you are incapable of forming actual words and makes us all *facepalm*.Mail:
Please enable guild mailings, as sometimes council/sub council members or members who host pages/events for the guild will use this to contact members with some important information.
Of course, if too many rules are broken, there will be consequences. Consequences vary from the following, depending on how severe these rules are broken. The consequences a member will recieve will usually start in the order below, unless
what they have done is very extreme and requires a more severe consequence.
- Being told nicely from a council member not to do it again.
- Official Warning from a council member
- Official Warning from a council member along with a Suspension.
So pretty much, its usually 3 warnings and then you're out (unless what you have done is extreme and not forgivable eg. scamming, stealing), which is quite reasonable. But hopefully we never have to ban anyone :)
These are our current ranks. Our rank names do get changed once in a while to make things a little more interesting.
The current rank theme is words that remind us of Xenite. our rank themes usually get changed a few times a year.Curious:
Congratulations on becoming a member of Xenite, and we are so glad to have you join us! This will be your starting rank. We hope you enjoy being a member of our guild.Playful:
We appreciate your activeness in the guild. You have gone up a rank for having at least 100 posts and at least one week of being in the guild! Well done.Fanciful:
Your half way to the top of the guild ranks now! Well done for having at least 200 posts and at least three weeks of being in the guild! We greatly appreciate your activeness.Eccentric:
Only one more rank until you reach the top! Thank you for continuing to be an active member of Xenite. For having at least 300 posts and at least two months of being in the guild we have given you this rank!Whimsical:
Give yourself a pat on the back because you have just reached at least 500 posts and at least three months of being in the guild which means you have now reached the highest rank! Well done! and thank you for staying with Xenite and working your way up to the top.

and let me know what you wish to help with.
Here is some information about some of the things Xenite has to offer to you.
friendly, active, chatty, helpful members
The members are the most important part of a guild. Xenite has a group of great people who are so nice and friendly and very welcoming to all new members. They are very active and quite chatty and also very helpful. You will often find them having lengthy and interesting conversations on our board, or answering questions to others about the guild and neopets. We love to help eachother! We are like one big happy family :)
active & hard working council
Our council members are very active, being online most days of the week and always working hard on all different aspects of the guild. Some work hard to make graphics and layouts, whilst others will work hard on hosting pages/activities, managing member ranks, monitoring the board and many other duties.
We strive to provide high quality graphics and content, as we believe that making the guild look nice appeals to people and helps to keep it looking interesting, and also having a wide range of pages and activities helps to provide fun things for members to do. We have lots to offer which you won't usually find anywhere else which makes us different and unique. We even have a graphics page with userlookups, pet pages layouts and more that we have made just for our members to use and that's not all, we also have our very own tutorials and resources page! This includes graphic and coding tutorials as well as resources to use in your graphic making. All made by members of Xenite to share with each other. All this is strictly for our members only.
Activites & Points System
We have quite a large variety of different activities which you can find the links to on our portal. There are two main prizes you will usually get from participating in our activities, which vary depending on the type of activity. Some of them will reward team points for your team whilst others will reward you with badges/icons/trophy's which are little graphics that you can display in your member cabinet. The Cabinets we provide are for you to fill with these rewards, to show off what you have won and show your activeness within the guild.
We do have an avatar lending program for those of you who love to collect avatars, as well as an adoption agency with painted & limited edition pets. We will, in the future also have our own goals and account improvement page with related activities. It is currently being worked on and will hopefully be up soon.
This is a section I have been wanting to create for some time now, but never gotten around to it. This section contains both past guild layouts and web layouts. I unfortunately don't have all of the past layouts saved in a coded preview, but I did keep a few :)

Questions & Answers
Here you can find a list of answers
to many different questions
about the guild. If you have a question that you are unable to find here, please neomail Katie
and I'll be sure to answer your question as best as I can, and if its something I feel should feature here, I will add it to this section.
Q: do i need to fill out an application before joining?
we don't require those lengthy applications at all. We are a public guild
that anyone is welcome to join, all we require is that you be at least semi-literate, active & friendly.
will xenite always be a private guild?
This is also currently un-decided,
but if we were ever to go private, we would definitely ask the members
first before making a decision. We want to make Xenite the guild the members
want it to be, and we take in and consider all their input.
q: is there an age restriction?
There is no restriction
on age to be able to join, however Xenite is a very mature
guild. Most of our current members seem to be between the ages of roughly 15-45.
So we pretty much consist of adult members
and members in their late teens.
We are quite a mature guild, but fun at the same time!
q: does xenite have a member cap?
Currently, no we don't
have a member cap. However, we may in the future,
but this is currently un-decided for the moment, but there's a good chance we could decide to at some stage. We will however, be having our next sweep
once we reach 100 members.
q: how often do you do sweeps, and will i be swept?
We don't like to do too many sweeps, as we know that people do get busy and don't want to remove anyone unfairly. We only really do sweeps about 2-3 times a year,
but we take everything into consideration
- number of posts, how long you have been in the guild, and how active you have been. For example, if you have been in the guild for 2 months and have 100 posts, but have not been online in 1-2 weeks, you won't be removed. But if you have been in the guild for 1 month and never posted, there's a good chance you may be removed. So it's very reasonable,
and no one gets unfairly removed here.
how active are the boards?
Our boards are quite active,
however you won't feel lost or overwhelmed. They are usually just right, not too active and not too quiet. However, there may be those occasional
one or two days a week where the boards may appear to be a little more chatty, or a little less chatty than usual, as every guild tends to have their more busy days and their more quiet days.
q: how often does the guild layout get changed?
We usually have anywhere between 1 and 3 guild layouts per month,
depending how much time we have to make them. We never have the same layout up for more than a month at the most though.
q: if another member isn't nice to me, what should i do?
If someone is not treating you nicely, or has done something against the rules, please neomail a council member
and we will resolve
the issue. If you see something that's not right, please also let us know.
We also promise to keep this information strictly confidential.
anything new for the future?
We try to come up with new ideas
as often as possible, so there will always be new things to look forward to in Xenite.
At the moment, the guild is under a revamp
which means we are working
on a variety of things, and improving
the guild in many different areas. Some of this will include new layouts for most of the guild pages, a new account improvement and goals page, and also some new content for the tutorials and resources page and the graphics page, plus many other bits and pieces.
