Well, this is how I would describe a petpage application:

I. What is a petpage application?

A petpage application is simply an application that you have designed by using HTML, CSS, or whatever on your pet's petpage.

A petpage is your pet's webpage that is on neopet's server, therefore it is owned by neopets.

II. How do I get to my pet's petpage?

Well, every pet has a petpage, therefore every pet has a link to their page. All pets have a preset layout that is different due to their species.

The link to get to your pet's petpage is simply:

http://petpages.neopets.com/~YOUR_PETS_NAME

Where it says YOUR_PETS_NAME, you obviously insert your pet's name. For example, lets say my pets name is Rhapsodity.

The link would be

http://petpages.neopets.com/~Rhapsodity

So, this is how you get the link to your petpage.

III. How do I get to where I can edit my pet's petpage?

You know on Neopets, every pet can have a webpage, called a petpage. You can get to your pets' petpages by simply first going to Pet Central.

Here, at the top, you will notice a neopets menu of where you can feed your pets, access your inventory, etc.

The menu will look like this:

Click on the Blue Lupe which says Pet's Page.

Now you should be at a page where you see three options under each of your pet's names. The options should say: Edit, View, and Stats.

Click edit.

Now, you can edit your pet's page. You can alter it however you want, but you cannot put anything profane on your pet's page (Obviously, and why would you, anyway?)

NOTE: Be sure to include EVERYTHING you want your audience (in this case: The owner of the pet you are applying for, or the application evaluator) before you send it in as a finalized application, because foster parents are only looking for the BEST applicants out there. So DO YOUR BEST.

IV.I don't know all of this webdesigning stuff, do you think I will still have a chance?

Of course you do, however, it would be better to try to learn some HTML or CSS. Neopets has an HTML guide that could help you. You can get to this HTML guide by clicking here. There are also many other guides that you can lookup on a search engine such as Google, AltaVista, Dogpile, etc.

And also, Csshelp has a great page for helping you on your HTML/CSS needs. You can get to her page by clicking here.

V. Poetry, RP Examples, Art, Etc.

As you have probably noticed, many of the foster parents who require petpage applications would like to see you being creative. They want you to show your creativity to show how dedicated you are to getting the pet that you want. So, if you want to have a better chance, try writing a poem, showing how you can roleplay, show art examples, or whatever you want, but if you can't draw, I suggest trying to have someone help you with your art, but you NEED to credit them. I also suggest being able to show at least some creativity.

Be sure you include the Pledge of Good Ownership in your petpage application.

VI. So... Why are petpage applications preferred over neomail applications?

Well, the main reason why petpage applications are preferred over neomail applications is because you can fit a lot more words on a petpage than you could in one neomail. The foster owners hate it when their neomail is getting spammed.

And on petpages, you can say a lot more things, put art on, etc.

There's not much more that I can say about this. This is more than a guide to what a petpage application in, it is also a helpful guide XD

I hope that this is what you wanted...or did I waste my time? ;P

This is basically everything the person needs to know about petpages and helping on petpage applications. An example of a good petpage application would be a good thing to add if anyone could provide me with a link to one :D
