Are You a True Neopian?

In my opinion it is not your achievements that make you a Neopian but your mistakes and failures and how you learn from them. We can’t all be well known or fantastic at games or collecting avatars or in the Battledome. But we can all commiserate together when things go wrong. If you still keep coming back to this site despite all the disasters and upsets you truly can consider yourself a Neopian.

Neopian Dining: The Golden Dubloon

Tonight I'll tell you about my experience at The Golden Dubloon, one of Neopia’s oldest restaurants. It has a rich history all its own, and it’s still a much-loved part of the island today. And though it’s popular with tourists, it’s also where the locals come to eat, which is always a good sign.

Are You a True
Neopian?



Do you consider yourself a true Neopian? The selection criteria for this have varied over the years and can often be broken down further depending on a user’s individual interests. For example if you are an avatar collector it used to be the ‘Big Three’ that made you feel like you finally belonged but now getting a Top 50 position might be your goal. In my opinion it is not your achievements that make you a Neopian but your mistakes and failures and how you learn from them. We can’t all be well known or fantastic at games or collecting avatars or in the Battledome. But we can all commiserate together when things go wrong. If you still keep coming back to this site despite all the disasters and upsets you truly can consider yourself a Neopian. In this article I am going to cover what I consider the three main types of mistake and misfortune that will befall most Neopians at some point, with examples of each.
