When my sister was younger, she used to occasionally play Neopets. When the Altador Cup would roll around, I would remind her of it and we would both compete against each other, trying to get the highest score. Although it's been years since she last logged on, I still smile when the AC rolls around and remember all the fun we had.

Whenever I see someone with an expensive avatar active, I can't help but think they're trying to show off.

When I tell my roommates I can't go out with them on weekends because I have too much Calculus homework... I stay home and play Maths Nightmare

March 21, 2013

I like to compare the HC to a stray cat...Sometimes you think they're cute...Sometimes they're not even worth your time

January 1, 2013

I dislike almost everyone in my guild but I keep them there because they always send me nice gifts and keep the guild active.

December 23, 2012

When I see someone on the HC asking for medicine to cure their sick Neopet, and the usual snarkier members are being exceptionally rude, it makes me want to buy the item and give it to the person myself, just to spite them. And if I can afford it, I do just that.

July 22, 2012

I learned how to cook an egg sunny side up correctly on the HC this one morning.

Every time I see people joking around and having fun with their neofriends on the HC, I jump up from the screen and run to the bathroom so nobody can see me cry about how I don't have friends I can do that with.

July 17, 2012

My brother and I bonded over Neopets. He got frozen but he continued to help me and my account. We are closer than ever. I thank Neopets for that.

June 26, 2012

I realize I really do want attention on the HC no matter how many times I deny it. However, it never works out and now I think I'll just take a step back and do the things I truly want to do on Neopets: Have a good time and help people. (:

June 18, 2012

I made the HC chart... but I guess this doesn't really clarify much, does it?

I have a friend that applies for pets all the time, and never gets them. She always asks me for opinions, but I never have the courage to tell her that her applications are really horrible; because she is very young and I'm scared that I could hurt her feelings. Then I feel guilty when she doesn't get the pet.

I don't really consider myself a troll. I consider myself a reg, or at least what one should be: Helpful, knowledgeable, and willing to share my experience, but at the same time, able to add a bit of "color" to the otherwise slow-moving, bland board.

The HC is full of sheep, whether the sheep know it or not. They take in whatever they hear, true or not, and they spit it right back out. Many of the common HC conceptions are actually misconceptions, but there is no way to convince people otherwise because that's what they've been spurting out for the last x years.

One thing I love the most about Neopets is being able to be myself on the boards and through Neopets. In RL, people don't really like me for some reason. I'm constantly alone and literally only have 1 friend who lives a few states away from me. Being able to have friends on Neopets has really helped my self-esteem because I know that somewhere out there, there are people who actually like who I am.

People always seem to think I'm upset when people troll the HC, but I'm secretly laughing at everyone who takes the whole thing seriously.

Whenever I see someone who says they have children and has a ton of neocash items, I automatically judge them for buying that instead of using it for their family.

For the past 8 years I have been an avid Neopets player. Over the past few years, as I got older, I got less and less proud of the fact that I was my age and played Neopets still. I was afraid I would be made fun of by others for still playing a "kids site". A few months ago I finally decided to stop hiding my pride of being a Neopets player and showed a site I created (coding and all) during my computer class in college. Instead of mocking me, people were amazed. It shocked me to no end, and ever since then I am proud to say I am a Neopets player at my age.

June 16, 2012

When I started playing Neopets in the third grade, all of my friends were avid players as well. We would chat about Neo, draw our pets, play with our Neo-based toys, everything. Six years later, I am the only one in that group who still plays. Not only do I feel sad because of this, but I'm afraid to tell anyone about it - even those people I played with in the past - because I'm afraid they'll make fun of me.

June 8, 2012

Neopets keeps the tears away, even though I'm still crying inside.

When I was little, I had an account that I used to play games, I had some pretty cool items locked up in the safety deposit box, with a pin, I took a break from Neo and when I came back I couldn't remember the Pin, so I logged onto my moms account, (She kept the fuzz word written down on a paper in the junk drawer, I don't think she knew I knew that) and started spamming on the boards asking how to get the pin off, and ended up getting the account frozen.

I love organizing guilds like I'm the leader and I like being in control of updating everything and making layouts... but I hate being the leader because I don't get to participate in anything which prizes are involved and I have to supply the prizes.

June 7, 2012

I absolutely HATE IT when people don't feed their pets or when they leave them sick. I wouldn't want to see their animals in RL.

When I am on the pound chat I tell the BC people I vote when in actuality I have the response that you get when voting for the BC saved to notepad and just replace the name when I tell people I vote. I never really vote.

Sometimes I have to sit back and remind myself that Neopets is just a hobby when the HC gets all dramatic.

I met somebody on Neo who lives only about five or so miles away. We ended up meeting in RL and having lunch. It was really awkward.

Every single time I see someone with a Beauty Contest entry in their signature, I go out of my way to vote for a different entry in the same species.

A few years ago, I asked people to rate my art. I had just started using a tablet, so I wasn't good, but I wasn't horrible (Better than some things you see in the BC...) Well this one person flamed me so bad that he got suspended. I got so disheartened that my art was terrible, that I mass-deleted all art on my computer. But now when I offer free art, people think my art is so amazing, and I get flooded with requests. Oh the irony.

I am in college and nobody knows I play neopets, even my boyfriend. I'm always nervous he's going to open the computer and discover my habitarium.

November 16, 2011

I'm at college and really shouldn't waste my time on this site- my studies do suffer at times. Also, I can't commandeer the computer for extended periods of time, and thus don't earn much more than 10k a day. All my np is earned through hard work, and I find myself being jealous of all those neo millionaires... the ones with expensively painted pets and beautiful neohomes. I wish I could just retire from real life and spend more time on Neo.

November 13, 2011

I bought so much neocash for Halloween that I have to borrow money to pay my bills in RL

The microcosm of Neopets is really quite realistic. I really do try to act on Neo just as I would in real life. I keep my pets happy because they're more than just "pixels". I use my best grammar, I say "please" and "thank you", and avoid getting into conflicts on the HC. I really do believe it's helped me to become sensitive to others' feelings in real life. It causes me to be more aware, but humble of my mistakes. I have true respect for the people who take care of their account so well. It truly demonstrates the quality of their personality.

I am a regular HC-er and I love offering advice to anyone and everyone. What I strongly dislike is the stereotype of the HC and all HC-ers: rude, stuck-up, mean... Sometimes the HC can get nasty, but it's usually when a troll appears on the board and the HC-ers have repeatedly tried and stopped the troll or let them know and the troll is just in denial. I was recently in one of these arguments (about NC trading) and in a matter of posts, it seemed like I was the troll. Thankfully, they weren't as nasty to me as I've seen before when I explained to them my point of view. I later saw the person who was being mean to me first, and they seemed very very normal. I sincerly hope that being an HC-er myself, I don't hurt anyone's feelings like that ever and the stereotypes stop. And I never am in the same situation again.

October 23, 2011

All of my pets have their own individual toys and grooming suplies, and I only feed my pets healthy food. I also only feed my baby pets baby food. After 4 months, I realize this is a waste of neopoints. I still do it because I feel like my pets have feelings. Everytime I see someone with sad pets on the neoboards, I send them some food and a few toys.

September 18, 2011

I always loved how after a long debate on the HC, everything just settles down. Sure there was some flaming and trolling but in the end it doesn't really matter. In the end it seems like users bond a little. This is one reason I like the HC so much. Just don't break any rules if you plan on debating with users, especially if the user is a BD chatter.

-secret removed by request-

July 26, 2011

?I always wondered what trolls, scammers, spammers, complainers, rude users, and mean people are like behind that screen. I wonder what expression is on their faces when they get the satisfactory of what they want. I wonder what they feel when they make someone's day horrible. I wonder what makes them do the things they do.?

July 24, 2011

A young gentleman I originally met on Neopets ended up completely changing my life for the better. He is now one of my absolute best friends in real life...and because of him, I now have the courage to follow my dreams. I thank the powers that be every day that we met each other...

I'm really jealous of most of the people on neopets. Some may not believe me, but my parents don't know about neopets, and I have to go on neopets when my parents aren't looking, which may sound stupid. I've told this to about 3 neofriends of mine, and they all said that it's ok, and didn't make fun of me. I sometimes wonder: How many other people go on neopets without their parents knowing?

July 11, 2011

People are really mean to me on the HC, but I take comfort in knowing that in real life, I'm pretty and popular, and they're losers.

July 9, 2011

?Sometimes when I'm on the HC, I just wish someone would post something controversial or something unruly for entertainment or to flame or correct on. Its kind of something that I'm not guilty of and I just realized it. Hopefully the HC will stay the way it is.?

July 5, 2011

i like how on neopets we aren't allowed it show anyone our faces or what we look like. i don't have many friends in real life, but i have a lot of friends on this website and i feel like i would lose them all if they saw how ugly i was in real life

July 4, 2011

I used to be one of the almost-popular people on the HC. I got frozen in February, but got unfrozen in April. I created a board a little while ago asking if anyone remembered me, and no one did. Not even the people who lent me expensive avatars through the HC. The worst part was people were telling me why would anyone remember me because I was such a 'n00b'. Neopets was my relief years ago, but I've actually started being unhappy again, and nobody knows why.

edited the above slightly to make sure no one gets in trouble -antalgic

June 26, 2011

I use Neopets to lose weight. I'm always trying to lose some tummy fat, but the only way I can do that is dieting, as I can't exercise much due to health problems. But I normally can't stick to a diet, so I use Neo to distract me. I've lost 3 pounds in the past two weeks.

I was once in a guild that had lots of people, and I always felt ignored. So I quit, even though my best NF started the guild. She hasn't noticed yet, which makes me feel bad, and I still haven't had the heart to tell her I quit.

June 22, 2011

I've been playing neopets for several years, and even though I barely log on any more, I still don't have the heart to delete any of my old neopets bookmarks.

June 13, 2011

I was originally planning on only going on the computer once a day for only one hour (because I have a habit of going on the computer 3-4 times a day for 2-3 hours, and it bothers me), but I discovered Neopets again, so I created a new account, and now I can't stop going on the computer. Now I remember why I used to love Neopets in third grade.

June 12, 2011

Ever since I first came to the HC, I always thought it was a nice place. Today however, was the day I realized that the HC wasn't all helping and nice chats. I fell for a simple joke and overreacted. This user said something really mean about me, I didn't bother to report it since there is no point. To be honest, I tried to be somewhat popular or normal on the HC, I failed miserably. Maybe I took things to seriously or I'm too sensitive. I guess HC isn't the right place for me... p.s. if you ever knew who I was in real life, you would think I'm a loser and a nobody.

June 11, 2011

I used to have a petpage like the one you're reading. Though I kept the secrets on the page anonymous, I saved all the usernames along with their secret. After months of having the page up, I began my plan since the beginning, and posted the page link along with who the really embarrassing secrets belong to. It was fun after a couple, but then I skipped to the best part; I posted the embarrassing secrets that 5-3 of the "popular" HC posters had written and their usernames; I got on Neopets most of the time (and still do) and longed to be known on there but never was, which made me feel pathetic. My plan was to ruin their reputations and have everybody think I was cool, since the only way I could think of to do that was to be mean. Yes, my plan failed, but I am now one of the most "popular" regulars on another board..and that makes me feel even more pathetic than before.

I'm a neopets addict.. My friends used to play it, but now they dont. They know I still do, and I'm not afraid to show it. I even have a FB album for neopets drawings and stuff. Some people laugh at it.. my friends say "good work". I'm a neopets addict, and I'm proud of it!

I was in a role playing guild once. I hated this person so much, that I made a petition for the leader to kick her out. Secretly I just wanted the person's council position. I got it.

sometimes I NM my side from my main and vice-versa to give myself the illusion of actually having friends. I sometimes have entire conversations with myself

June 10, 2011

I hate it when people go on the HC just to ask for ratings. They're only looking for the satisfaction of people who honestly don't care.

I can't like Neopets on Facebook because I'm a 22 year old med student...people will make fun.

I learned to code by stealing other people's and playing with it until they couldn't tell it was there's anymore.

Me and my real life friend were neo-addicts. He never comes on anymore though, but we used to play an imaginary game that we were in a tribe of prehistoric JubJubs. We had a gritted pitch with little grass fields growing along the sides of it. We used to take the hay from the grass as supplies, as well as discarded fruit and imaginary meat and fish. Every time we found a worm we kept it and pretended that they were Woo Woo Grubs. Other people ended up joining in with our game and we had about 15 people in it, all with different jobs. None of the other people played Neopets but still joined in. Then someone else joined who seemed like he wanted to play. Then one day he took all of the hay we had gathered, which was hidden under a picnic bench, and ran away. Me and my friend were so upset and felt so betrayed. Later we stopped playing the game and pretended that I was a regular Flotsam destined to become royal. Those were the good times.

Someone on the HC got perm silenced recently. Everyone was really sympathetic and it caused a bit of a tiff. I was actually really glad, I've always really disliked that person and thought they deserved it! But obviously, I couldn't say that aloud!

When I was younger (really young -- think ten years old or so), I used to chat on the HC to try and seem cool. When the regs talked to me, I felt so flattered. I thought that maybe someday, I'd be able to become a reg just like them and be ~popular~. I posted snarky answers to try and seem witty because that was what everyone was doing. Now I'm thirteen, and I revisited the HC for nostalgia's sake. I was honestly shocked by the state of the board, and I saw that most of the "regs" I had looked up to and chatted with were rude elitists. I wondered what had changed. Then I realised that nothing had.

When I'm applying for a pet I look up its name in a search engine to find other people who have applications for him/her. I compare it to mine and make it better...

Once, someone wanted to start a mall with me. We went through plans and such. We quickly became friend over the hour of neomailing. I sent them a NC item I bought with my own money, and then they said I needed to give them my PW so they could put the coding on my shop. Then they hacked me so I made a new account saying that person scammed me, but everyone said, "Troll! I know -insert scammer here- wouldn't do it. You're reported for harassment!" Then the scammer got back on my account and spammed, so I went on my other account and said they scammed me and then the scammer went on my OTHER account and spammed and got me frozen.

If a friend of mine comes round to my house while I play Keyquest, I immediately quit because I don't want my reputation to be ruined.

I always avoid using the internet on my computer when my friends are over because my internet homepage is Neopets.

When I didn't have a fb, I would just everyone to look me up on neopets, even though they didn't know what neopets was!

I don't know which I want to believe less as I click Submit on yet another ticket: that I'm so naive and impractical that every idea and complaint I've ever come up with has been useless, or that from the get-go TNT never cared.

If there is ever a fight or people moaning at a troll and people decide to bring it to an end, I always urge them to keep on fighting for my amusement. I also get very upset when an amusing troll leaves its own board.

I actually lost a good neofriend because she was trying to troll on a side account, trying to be funny, but not wanting anyone to know it was her. I accidentally used her name.

Around 10 years ago, I made an account, played for a year, then forgot about it. 4 years later, I found the account again which had some real named, nice pets on it. When I logged back on and saw my pets sad, I quickly froze the account because I thought they would be mad at me because I neglected them. Now my first account has been purged, and I look back and see what an idiot I was.

I had returned to Neopets during the summer of 2010. I was excited, had big dreams, and eventually got the hang of thing. However, on my failed accounts(I was young) I never went to the Neoboards. I decided to go to the newbie boards, I got to know more about Neopets but there were many problems. I kept getting in trouble and was a rude neopian. I got into the NC mall in October and got to do my first plot which was the Faerie's Ruin. I began to get worse since silencing replaced suspensions. I got a neoboard pen but a few days before Christmas, I got permanently silenced. I was very sad and angry. I had side accounts and old mains but those got silenced. Now, I'm stable on my new side.

I'd rather be doing several other things when I'm on here, but playing Neo is the easiest.

I had this neofriend that randomly friended me after I posted on one of her boards. A few months passed and she kept sending me neomails advertising her sites and her shop, and I didn't mind much. I saw her post a lot on the HC and she always looked really silly. For some reason I can't even remember, I got in an argument with her on someone else's board and I un-friended her after insulting her sites and artwork. I feel really bad, even though she was just a noob.

Secretly, I've always wanted to visit TNT HQ and give them some help. Sometimes they really need it.

Sometimes I go around on a certain board to purposefully rile people up just so I can report them and get them in trouble.

May 31, 2011

when i see a group of people attacking someone i queue into the mob-mentality and get them even more riled up

May 29, 2011

Once I saw an ad on the PC for an UFQA unclothed Pirate Eyrie. The OP decided to neomail one person the time, and I was very upset when she didn't pick me. For the next 15 minutes, I constantly refreshed the pound for the pet because I knew that she would pound eventually. Well the pet finally appeared, and I hit adopt as fast as I could. I can't imagine the disappointment on the chosen adopter's face when they saw, "Terribly sorry, this pet already has an owner and is very happy!" Even though I felt dirty, I ignored all their neomails and blocked them.

If I see some good trolling happening on boards, I secretly root for the troll. If I see rubbish trolling happening on boards, I am disappointed at a fail troll being fail.

May 12, 2011

In four days It will be 1 year since I created my favorite pet. He was a mynci with a real life monkey name associated with a real famous monkey. If anyone saw the name they would think it was badly named because they didn't understand it. A few weeks after creating him i zapped him and he turned into a techo. I was so frusturated i pounded him. I now want him back and the owner is under 13. No way to contact him. I miss you

I was depressed for quite some time a while ago and the only thing that helped me cope with it was neo....

I can't stand how sensitive the HC has gotten over the years. It's made me even more bold and sarcastic, quite the opposite of everyone else. But when people can't stand me telling them that the flashing images on the page they want people to rate could give someone a seizure is hurting my eyes... Yeah. It was much better when you were automatically a rude person for having answered a question on the HC.

(No one in real life knows I play Neo). My friend works for another pet site. She criticizes Neo a lot, and every time she says something bad about Neo, I play along and say the only reason I know all about Neopets is because I troll the message boards. And she believes it, even when it gets so obscure as me knowing all about the Battle for Meridell plot xD

May 7, 2011

I ask questions I know the answers to on HC 'cause I'm bored

I Bid money I don't have on an original Scorchio plushie. And won.

I get bullied a lot and always feel like somebody is trying to make me feel bad. Neopets is the only place where I have friends who like me for me and I think its kind of sad. I wish I was popular on Neo at least so I could feel better about myself, but everyone always is able to point out my mistakes and make me feel like a pathetic fool. Its weird how sometimes on Neopets I can easily trust people, other times I am afraid of saying one syllable to them, I am always paranoid and even sent this from a side account... sorry.

I keep telling myself I'm going to quit Neo, but everytime I get close, I get sucked back in. It started as a coping mechanism and now it's an addiction. I leave for college later this year, and I'm terrified I won't have quit by then, and that my roommate will find out I play.

I dream about Neopets.

Although I'm generous irl, I'm super greedy on neo. I post on every board that mentions giveaways, in hopes I'll get something. I also make a board every year on my birthday "asking what we get" hoping people will send me presents.

April 7, 2011

I have a cartoon crush on Hanso. I'm very jealous of Brynn, lucky Kougra...

A long time ago, I was friends with this girl and she and I both played Neo. We then got into a huge fight, and I still hate her. A couple of months ago I saw her post from her old account. Ever since then, I try to stalk her to find a reason to report her just because I hate her. Her profile says she has a sister that plays. She's an only child. I wanna bust her out.

April 6, 2011

I'm rude to people on the boards, because that little ego boost I gain makes me feel better about my failing irl.

April 4, 2011

Everytime I see someone who should know better feed a troll, I want to say something so badly, but that would only be feeding it more, so I say nothing.

The only reason I want to download GIMP and get a tablet so I can make graphics and draw screenies.

I have made up a fake niece (who is ten and is named elizabeth) so that when I buy Neocash cards I can lie about who it's for if the cashier asks. I am ready to tell them that it is her birthday, and that my family always makes our own cards (if they ask if I need a card to go with the Neocash card). To this date, no one has ever asked me who the card is for, even if it is the only thing I'm buying, but Elizabeth lives on because I am embarrassed to admit I am about to graduate high school and I still play Neopets.

I talked to my best friend (in RL) on Neopets, and I had no clue it was her until I looked over at her computer screen in the library. She was NMing me. Small world.

When I first started Neo, I made an atrociously named pet... Now I have emotional attachment to it and can't seem to pound it, even though it's such an ugly name.

When I was starting to gain like 50k a day on Neo (I thought I was a hot shot) I started lending basics for collateral. When people would offer NP collateral, I would take the NPs and not offer them back, I didn't know what collat was, I thought it was just a fee for lending. XD

My grandmother asked me if I played Neopets still, I denied it because I didn't want her to know that instead of having a social life I'm on here. I feel ashamed for lying to her.

When I was seven, my Kacheek, (my very first pet) got sick. I told my sister and she said she would fix him. She turned him mutant, I cried. I had no idea that was a 'colour' so I pounded him, I'd do anything to get him back. Every time I look at my sister (I'm 18, she's 23) I secretly get angry

Even though i go to the HC everyday, It still bothers me when i see some people being horrible to other users. I wish i had the nerve to be mean back to them!

i always lurk on the HC, but i secretly hate the way everyone acts so stuck-up on there.

I met a guy at a friend's birthday party when I was in sixth grade. He decided he liked me and made an account on neopets so he could e-mail me. I thought it was so sweet. After a couple neomails, though, I was pretty sure he was a stalker...A twelve year old stalker. So I blocked him. Never heard from him again.

In college, I met a girl who had a lot in common with me and we became friends quickly. She mentioned in passing that she played Neopets casually. I looked her up and found, to my dismay, that she was a total Altador Cup freeloader. From that point on, she lost a lot of trust and respect with me. That ended up being justified: less than a month later, she majorly stabbed me in the back in real life. The moral of the story: people who are unethical in a game are usually unethical in real life too.

The name I go by on neopets isn't my real one, but I've been playing for almost 9 years by this name. If I changed to my real one, I'm more afraid of how many people wouldn't notice, instead of how many would.

After a long day at school each day, I come to relax on neo where I can be myself and express who I am with complete strangers who can't bully me. After saying this out loud, I feel like a real loser. Good thing no one from school knows.

Recently someone very important to me turned into something unrecognizable. Whenever I think of them and it hurts I get on Neopets and send someone an expensive item to give them the thrill of unexpected gifts and me, even without a thank you, a smile instead of tears.

My best NF and I kinda just stopped talking after a fight a few years ago. She traded away a pet I gave to her and it sadly all went downhill from there. Still, that year we knew eachother was probably the best year I've had on Neo, we went though a lot of stuff, both bad and good. For two people who just randomly met on Neo, we chatted about a lot of things and had such a lot of fun. I still check her account sometimes and hope she will have logged on again. It'd be great to get in touch again, if so only because I wonder how she is doing today. The "Last Seen: A long, long time ago" makes me sadder than it should.

When people ask to have things SSWed, I SSW them and buy the cheapest one; I lie if they comment on the first shop being sold out.

It never fails to amaze me how much a simple "nty" from a reseller can sound like a "leave me alone, you clueless loser" when you just want to get rid of an item.

On the first snow day in our town in many years, all of the kids in my neighborhood were playing in the snow. I was inside playing neopets.

before April 3, 2011

this is where i learned to take a step back and be proud of being me.

In real life, I'm actually quite popular. On here, I'm a nobody.
I like it here better.

i am such a different person in real life. on neopets i am BOLD!
in the real world i am a meek, shy girl.
I feel safer here.

My brother joined the same guild as me, but no one knew. He forgot to log out once and I posted on the guild notice board on his account accidentally. I quickly logged back onto mine and continued a 5 post conversation to cover up my mistake.

My boyfriend bought me $100 in NeoCash at CVS. When we took the cards to the register the cashier assumed it was for our child. We have no children and I feel bad for not speaking up.

I once flamed a girl who idolized me & was inspired by me. I didn't recognize her, since she was on a side account, until I had already posted & looked at her lookup.
I really hope she didn't recognize me. She probably did.
I feel like the biggest jerk.

Someone who I really looked up to called me bad names & made me cry
But I still wish that I could be her friend or be in her guild
And it makes me feel pathetic.

i have been so annoyed with the behavior of some people on the hc that i have gone onto a side account and called out my "friends" for their actions.

Neopets: The only place where people will accept and NOT criticize my passion for Star Trek. It's the place I can go where people won't mock me because I'm a "nerd". I can actually discuss thinks I like to discuss with people who enjoy such things.

Neopets has become my safe haven

Once, I was on the HC and I saw a scam link. I clicked on it, knowing the site would get my [pass]word. I just wanted to see what it looked like.

When my dog, who was my life and my only friend at my home, was taken away from me I was heartbroken. I cried for days.
Neo was the only thing that could make me happy.

I started playing Neopets after my dog died because I wanted to have a pet that couldn't die. I even named my first Neopet after him. I still have the Neopet and it is a fond reminder of my old best friend.

I use neopets to complete my Pokedex

my best friend was the one who introduced me to neo, got me started, helped me when i was lost, and was my best nf on neo for a year.
until she got hooked on pokemon instead, & now she never talks to me

when i first started playing key quest and hardly knew about it, i thought that the person with the most yellow keys won, so i traded all my other keys for yellow ones, not knowing i was making myself lose and i ended up losing the game. nobody told me i was playing wrong.

i hate it how the famous HCers don't get flamed for being frozen or how they make can make an off-topic board and not get in trouble. i hate it how they get free stuff just because they are famous. i hate it that i'm not a famous HCer.

I'm 16, but everyone thinks that people who say they're 16 are actually creepy old men in real life lying about their age
So I decided to challenge that by saying I'm an old man Now people believe me, and are Neomailing me wishes for my old age. They like me for it, and I am loving the attention
I would feel bad to let them down, so I will keep being an old man on neopets
hopefully they don't read this

sometimes i use neopets to advertise my videos of an OffLine site to get more views!

sometimes i skip meals because i don't want to miss the restock of an item i'm trying to get

i have a completely empty side account so that when my friends look me up on neo, they don't see my main and see how seriously i take this site

I get paid to make websites as a side job.
I really just recycle coding from my user lookups.

I wish talking to people in real life was as easy as talking to people on Neo

I send more Neomails than I do e-mails.

Most of the time when someone asks "what's up" i reply "nothing" because the real answer is "trying for a game avatar

When I was 9, I tried to scam someone. It was an awful attempt, but I felt so bad about trying that I pounded my rightly-earned royal bruce.
I cried every night for the next six weeks.

When I want guild ideas, I steal good activity ideas from the guilds board...I sometimes steal the whole idea of other guilds.

I'll never be allowed to buy Neocash, so I just go to the NC Mall and window shop. I design outfits that I think look really cool... They probably look silly.

I've been on Neopets 9 years, on the HC for 5. and even though I help people out, I don't have one neofriend.

All my friends tried out for cheerleading. I stayed home and played keyquest.

on side accounts, i am mean to people who svck up to me

I cried because I thought I got a warning... but it turns out that it was just a message from TNT. And that it didn't count against me.

In fifth grade, my sister and I hacked into our best friend's Neopets account & took everything she had. We're all twenty now; she still doesn't know, & we're still best friends.

I only go to spam topics because I know my friends will be there

I used to be friends - not neofriends, but actually friends - with a exorbitantly rich neopian. Then I quit neo for two or three years.
When I came back I tried to get in touch with all my old friends; he ignored my neomails. I was really hurt.
I think he thought I was a gold digger - but I never asked him for anything while we were friends and I would never do that!
Thanks for showing what kind of friend you REALLY were!

when I started out on Neopets i faked my age just so i could edit my lookup. now I'm really into design

I used to put my pets in the most expensive Neolodge room with all the extras every month because I thought my pets had feelings and if I paid for all of this nice stuff, they would love me more.
I now realize that I was just wasting my Neopoints...

I find it really rude to tell people who are quitting to pound their pets.

I pound surfed and deliberately picked up a pet that was in the middle of a transfer just to get Neomails asking for the pet back.

My friend reported our guild because she was jealous of me.

for Christmas, my mom bought my 1-year-old niece a Neopets KQ plushie, not knowing that it was from Neopets or that I played the site. I didn't want to ask for one, so I took the KQ tag, put in the code, and put it back on the plushie.
no one ever found out, but it makes me feel so pathetic now.

On Neopets, I'm a great businesswoman. But in real life, I can't even sell lemonade.

I'm afraid that if I tell anyone that I play Neopets, they'll look me up & see how lame I am.

i lurk the HC for hours, clicking on random usernames and rating their pets.

At least fifteen people that I met on Neopets know what I look like and where I live.

I use Neopets references as examples for my parents. They seem to understand, but I think they're just humoring me. :)

i used to price my shop based on the "estimated price" instead of SWing the actual price.
someone told me about the mistake i was making...
i lost my temper and my first account.

i used to make accounts through the link that gives you free stuff with every account that gets activated

whenever I make fun of my mom about the games she plays on another site in front of my friends, I always cut her off before she can start talking about how I play Neopets, because I don't want anyone to know I play.

My friend told me about this site so i made an account.
I was so proud that day because i earned 50,000 NP so i got onto the shop boards to see what i could buy and i spent all of my money on a paint brush plushie thinking it would change my pet's color I still feel stupid...

I once used some of my friend's NP to complete a quest

I sometimes yell at my computer when it lags while I'm restocking

sometimes I think about hiring a hacker so that i can get my old Kougra back.
i don't even care about the 100k on that account.
i just miss my pet.

I'm reluctant to give my real-life friend tips for neopets when she asks....
Because I don't want her account to be better than mine.

i recently neomailed my secret to someone else, thinking they were the OP because i was on the wrong board page.
immediately afterward, i blocked them because i was afraid of how they would reply. XD

my friends think i'm so 'tech-cool' and totally expert at making web sites and layouts and junk though i'd never admit that i learned everything from neopets.

About 75% of the stuff I know about economics I learned from Neopets.

i give people on the HC a hard time because i know i can get away with it.

I've become known through my time on the Help Chat and my work on my petpages.
It's such a great feeling.
But...sometimes when somebody greets me by my nickname, I can't remember if it's because I've chatted to them before

When my friends talk about their level 60 WoW characters, I used to yell, "I've got a level 80 Krawk, beat that!

I sometimes wonder if any of my neofriends are stalkers... and they'll find out where I live

One time an ad for the Daily Dare came on the TV, and my dog started barking at AAA. I told him without thinking, "Yeah, I know, I couldn't beat him at Super Hasee Bounce either.

I used to have nightmares about Sloth coming to take over the world

Once I told my mom that taking care of Neopets was really, really hard. So she said that if I could take care of a Neopet, I could get a kitten.
I put my Neopets in the Neolodge and had a kitten a week later.

I have a Neofriend that's better friends with me than my best friend in real life!

me and my boyfriend play neopets every day.
it's the first thing he does when he gets off work, and the first thing i do when i wake up.

I have met several Neofriends in real life
In hindsight....I'm really glade none of them turned out to be Internet creepers

Once I got in a fight with my friend (she played Neo, too) and I blocked her.
After we made up, I forgot to unblock her for a month.

when i started playing about 7 years ago i made loads & loads of side accounts. they're gone now 'cause i rarely logged in.

I used to make my mom feed my Neopets when I went on vacation.
I would call her every day and ask her if they were healthy.

When I was a lot younger, and the Icy Snowflakes were more expensive...
I, er, scammed a few people.
I was frozen for it and I've learnt my lesson...
But I feel awful.

I helped my sister make an account on neopets a few years ago, also helping her come up with the [pass]word. When she finally started earning np, i logged into her account and stole half the money and a bunch of cool items.

A while ago, I used horrid language, just to get my account frozen the fun way.

i hid some KQ plushies in target so i could buy them later and they wouldn't be gone.

After going on the computer to play Neopets too often I now have to wear glasses.
It's upsetting to hear that my eyesight has worsened but I love playing Neopets so I guess it's ok.

one question that I never truthfully respond to is, "how do you spend most of your time on the computer?"
but if you're reading this right now, you already know the answer.

When I went to buy my first Neocash card, I refused to go up to the cash register to pay for it. I made my dad pay for it because I don't want anyone to know I play.

One time I got my side account frozen... just to see what it was like.

i have, at one point gotten the tooth faerie avatar. i then proceeded to tell my best friend about it. she laughed at me for playing neopets, and i then self-froze. now, thinking back on it makes me want to cry.

i use my side account to spy on other hcers

I feel awful every time I argue with someone. Really awful.

when i started neo, i thought that when you released a bottled faerie you would get a quest.

I sent in an "application" for a Maraquan Draik saying, "I like your mara draik. if i can have him just transfer him to me. if not, just don't neomail me back.

when i first started playing there was a spammer who posted a completely inappropriate link on his board. i clicked on it and when i returned his board had been deleted. so i made my own board saying, 'oh my gosh did you see the link that guy just posted?!' i got flamed so bad.

i used to spam on my side account... for quite a while

After I lost my main account of six years, I started crying one day in my car in a parking lot. It was the first time I'd cried in two years.

When i had my first account my first pet caught chickaroo I got my sister to pound the pet and i cried because i couldn't afford the cure.
