I apologize that it took so long to get back to update, life has been so busy! I had a few people send in site of the month applications, but I could only take one. So I just picked the first person who sent me one. I am so sorry that I couldn't get back here in time to avoid that. Anyways, voting for the site of the month is now open and don't forget to keep on voting for the button of the month. We have a few tie breakers to deal with that a few simple votes can solve. There is also still three slots left for the icon of the month competition, so sign up while you can! Again, I will try to get on as much as I can to update. Thank you for your patience!

Welcome

    You may use an offsite program, like Dress to Impress, or dress up your Neopet up with your own clothing, when entering the COTM.
    Add "Midnight" somewhere in your form so that I know that you have read the rules and agree to them.

F.A.Q.

Is your question not here? Feel free to neomail me, so I can add it to this list!
1. Someone is pressuring/bribing me to vote for them, what do I do?
First off, You should report them for harrassment, you should not let anyone push you around no matter what!
Secondly, Please contact me, so that I can disqualify them from the competition and ban them from ever entering again.
Thirdly, thank you so much for informing me. I am so sorry that you were bullied.
2. One of the competitors stole my/someone else's work!
First off, You should report them for stealing you/someone else's work, that just isn't right.
Secondly, Please contact me, so that I can disqualify them from the competition, ban them from ever entering again, and report them for stealing.
Thirdly, thank you so much for informing me. I am truly grateful!
3. Can I be affiliates with Dusk?
Yes, of course! If you're interested in becoming affiliates with Dusk, please note that I will reject you if you:

Have stolen content.
Break Neopets rules.

If you follow these guidelines then we will have no problem. Unless I have reached 25 affiliates and have no openings that is. You will then have to wait till I sweep a closed/inactive site.

I am currently at 02/25 affiliates. Want to apply?
4. Can I review Dusk?
Hmm, maybe. I may or may not except a review, because of the fact that I am a very sensitive person. It really only depends on if you are kind and pitch it right to me. If that is so, I will most likely be swayed to except your review. Kindness goes a long way with me!
5. I found a spelling/link/image error.
Oh gosh, thank you so much for finding my error! I really appreciate you informing me about it. Please neomail me the mistake I made, so I can fix it as soon as possible.

Dusk's Story

I made Dusk because there just aren't very many active community and competition sites anymore. Interactive sites are fun and it's just too bad they are starting to dwindle down to nothing. So Dusk was born from the idea of bringing people together. I want a place for site owners to showcase their abilities, while advertising their sites, and for regular Neopains to show off their own abilities too. Everyone deserves a chance to have fun, site owner or not! I named this site Dusk, because dusk is the prettiest time of the day and I love the night. I am one big night owl! It's actually just past 3:30am right now and I'm still up and about... I plan on keeping Dusk up and running for as long as there are sites and Neopians out there who want to prove their worth in graphics, art, coding, and site owning. I'm crossing my fingers, because I hope that is for a very long time!

In Depth

As you can see my name is Jennifer, but you can call me Jen or Jenny if you want. I am a 23 year old college student who can't decide on a major. I suffer from a knee issue called Patellar Subluxation and have been going through lots of physical therapy and surgery for it. I live in the United States of America, but I wish to leave to explore the rest of the world. I have a big passion for learning as much as I can about mythology and history. I also run a graphic and resource site called Aurora. Really, I could go on forever, but instead, you should check out my about me page if you actually want to hear more.
