Welcome

❝ This is no time for ease and comfort. It is time to dare and endure ❞

Welcome to Dare. Dare you read on...?

Dare is a 16+, semi-literate, account improvement based neo-related guild, which is aimed at challenging you across all areas of neopets.

On the 12th July 2015, three dedicated neopians known as Jordi, Jean and Cherie, set out to create a new, exciting community. Their aim was to create an exciting, but challenging new guild, dedicated to helping improve members overall accounts.

Sometimes, it is easy to get caught up in one particular area of the site, forgetting that there is a whole menagerie of avenues on neopets. Although the most popular answers usually lead to avatar collecting, customising and pet trading, there are many other smaller, lesser known elements from the stock market to stamp collecting as well.

We aim to turn Restockers into Pet Traders and Avatar Collectors into Customisers. We want to show you that it is okay to drift away from your "neopian comfort zone" and focus on improving, and enjoying many elements of the neopets site.

Whether you are wanting to up your Trophy Count, or learn how to feed those hungry Kads, our active and supportive community is here to help.

Dare prides itself on challenging its members in a fun and unique way. We do this by providing activities and guides, solely catered and developed to help you. Time has been taken to develop such events to help raise avatar counts, encourage you to feed kads, give you the patience to restock, and of course, provide a community to encourage others to do the same.

Rules

❝ In order to conquer, what we need is to dare ❞


In order to keep Dare running smoothly, and importantly: Drama Free, there are a few rules we expect our members to adhere too. These are nothing that shouldn't be expected anyway, so please do not be scared!



Firstly, please introduce yourself when you join the guild. We want to get to know you and welcome you into our family! Don't be shy, we don't bite - honest.

Have a nice font that is easy on the eyes. We would all prefer not to be blinded while reading messages! Need help finding a premade one? Just ask - (bonus points if it is 'Dare' related!)

Only main accounts will be accepted. We want to help you to improve the account you spend the most time on. This will make it easier for us to help you.

Please no spamming the guild board. We ask that you do not post more than three times in a row and that all of your posts can be replied to and have a point. This means, we would appreciate not having one word answers. Wait until you have something worth saying!

We are a semi-literate guild. This means that although we tolerate the odd smilie and shortened phrase, we would appreciate you refraining from the overuse of these! Please type in full sentences, using proper grammar and punctuation where possible. Phrases like "ily" and "brb" will be tolerated (as long as this isn't a one word post), but please do not "tlk lyk dis LOL

No Drama Llamas! If you have a problem with somebody else in the guild. Take it to neomail. Please notify one of our council so that we can help everyone get along and resolve the issue. We want to be one big family. This cannot happen if there are neomails going on behind the scenes that the council are not aware of. If there is an issue, please bring it up with a council member as soon as possible!

Please remain active. We want to know you are okay. Catching up with everyone at least once a week is good. If you are going to be away from longer let a council member know so we know you didn't fall off the edge of the planet. We appreciate that real life exists, but likewise, if you do not have the time to be working on your account or chatting amongst the guild, it would be kinder to let someone who does, have a place in Dare. In order to achieve this, there will be monthly member sweeps to insure that our members are active. So be prepared for removal if you have not met with the above requests.

A self explanatory rule: You must follow all of neopets rules. This means no begging other members for items or breaking any other rules. Dare will not be hosting any form of donation shop, as again, this is against the rules of neopets. If you are unsure of any of the rules, please take a look at neopets terms and conditions.

Requirements

❝ It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that they are difficult. ❞


We pride ourself on our community, which means there are a few requirements that we ask you meet in order to join us. You will find listed below our mandatory requirements, which you must meet and then a further list of additional requirements. We ask that you meet five of these.

The additional five, are a mixture of all elements of the site, so it should be fairly easy to meet these. Remember though, we are an account improvement guild, so we are here to test and challenge you! The requirements are in our members best interests, to help see accounts blossom.

Should you have any queries regarding our requirement process, or are unsure as to whether you meet them, please send a neomail with the subject heading Dare Requirement Enquiries to Jordi- (thetasigmaa), by clicking on the envelope below.

Ranks

❝ Dare to challenge yourself, take on new challenges and climb the ladder of success. ❞


Every journey has a beginning. And in Dare, this is where yours begins. In order to progress through Dare, we have "Stepping Stones" (or ranks), that we ask you meet. These shy away from typical "post x amount" systems, as these are not beneficial to helping your accounts. As Dare prides itself on account improvement, our ranking system is tailored around this. We aim to push you to your neopian limits, challenging you, and then rewarding you for you hard work.


Trying:

Upon joining Dare, you will be Trying. You have just entered a whole new world, dedicated to helping you improve your account. So, you are "trying" to do this! In order to progress, we ask that you:


Welcome yourself to the guild community, fill in your member bio, and let us know your neopian goals and aims
Collect 30 Guild Stamps
Start focusing on one new element of your account to work on



Pacing:

They say that Slorg and Steady wins the race. And that is very much true here. You are doing well in Pacing yourself, not taking on too many challenges at once, but likewise, pushing on and trying new things. By now, we hope that you would be aiming to achieve:


A Dare member for 2 months
Collected at least 60 Guild Stamps
Be hosting Guild boards dedicated to account improvement, whether that be restocking or helping members achieve certain avatars
Be a known face around the guild, providing support to fellow members and helping where possible
Be a member of our expert page in which you are willing to give members advice on areas of your neopian expertise
Be working across several new elements of the neopets site



Climbing:

You are doing well! You are venturing into new waters and are climbing your way to success. You have done well to challenge yourself, and try many different elements of neopets, that you may not have thought you would be able to do, or enjoy! By now, we are hoping that you would be:

A Dare member for 6 months
Aiming for 90 Guild Stamps
Be hosting regular Guild boards
Taking part in a large proportion of guild events and activities
Taking on additional duties such as hosting pages and organising events and activities
Writing guides for the guild to help other Dare members improve their accounts
Be working and challenging yourself, trying at least 5 new account elements



Achieving:

We are so proud of you! You are achieving such wonders! Did you think it were possible? You have challenged yourself across many elements of the guild, pushed yourself to the limits! Look at you, look at your account! Be proud of your achievements are hard work.

A Dare member for one year
Collected 120 Guild Stamps
Be hosting regular Guild boards
Taking part in a large proportion of guild events and activities
Taking on additional duties such as hosting pages and organising events and activities
Writing guides for the guild to help other Dare members improve their accounts

Oh hai! My name is Jordi, 20 something years old. During the day I am an accountant, by night I am a comic book reading, Disney watching nerd! I have been on neopets for over 10 years, and enjoy restocking, collecting avatar and lurking the pc.



Hiya I'm Jean. Mom of 2 and grandma of 4 lil monsters. I am a site supervisor at GE Canada and volunteer with Big Sisters. I have done some foster parenting over the years as well. I have 4 dogs and one little fuzzball kitty. Been around the site a long time, enjoy the BD and making layouts. Feel free to kick me if you need anything.



Hello I'm Cherie. I am a 24 year old army wife residing in the hot state of Florida. I enjoy playing various video games, watching sports (GO COWBOYS), or sitting down to a good book. On neopets I love training my pets and collecting neodeck cards/stamps. In Dare I will help recruit. I will also be hosting the Member Directory and the Battledome Guide Page!
