Twice as Nice

"He's already read this one," Cleo said, setting the small hardcover copy of Courgette Farming down on the table before plucking out the teabag from her mug. The Vandagyre inspected the satchel's tag for a moment before tossing it into the wastebasket.

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.
