Congratulations to this
"President's Day Giveaway"!
Games are held on the Neopets Board occasionally, but most can only be found on the Neodaq. Good luck!
- MIDNITEIR -
The SBGN News team wants to point out one of our wonderful members this week. The ever exciting midniteir not only gave unselfishly to others this week with her Tonu battles, but was helpful and supportive on the boards as well. Her generosity and willingness to assist others make her stand out from the rest. Congrads on getting the "Member of the Week" Midnite!

A BIG "thank you" to all of my terrific reporters!
A humongous-sized hug to w3neo for allowing me the space on the website for the News!
The greatest rage ever invented has hit Neopia like an Iron Lupe Sword! Avatars seem to be all anyone talks about anymore. What is it about these insidious little items that makes people spend and search until their minds go numb?
If you consider what they make people do, is it any wonder that the TNT has been cranking them out in record numbers lately? As long as an average Neopian is on a "Great Avatar Hunt" they are not as concerned with the little matter of the missing stocks, or the sudden appearance of pop-up ads all over the place. Why, this could be just the beginning of some of the greatest diversions ever created by the team!
I recently watched as one of our members began to complain about certain ads suddenly appearing all over Neopia. Then, this member realized that they didn't have a particular avatar. In no time, she was happy and on to her next search. Coincidence? I think not.
No, fellow SBGers, avatars may seem like a harmless little past-time, but in truth they are a devilish plot created by the ENT to keep you busy so you don't notice the fact that there is still no NeoSchool, or any number of things they have promised for some time. They are a tool of the team to keep you spellbound and busy while they continue to delay and postpone.
Do not be fooled! Stand up for yourselves! You know you will never get that silly trophy anyway, right? There is also no way you will ever use all of the hundreds of currently available avies even if you tried. It is time we let the ENT know that we are not so easily fooled. I reject the great avie mania in the name of properly run websites. I shan't go searching for a single one...and I will be keeping my eyes peeled so as to protect those who currently cannot let go of their addiction to see the truth.
Ooooo...look! A new avatar with a Draik on it! Shiny!...
A Few Good Reasons Why
How many times have you gone to the Neopets Guild Board and just couldn't find anyone to talk to? Well, it seems to have happened quite a bit this week, judging by the amount of people attempting to resuscitate it. Perhaps there is a reason why this keeps happening. Let's examine what those could be, shall we?
1 - It is currently 3:00 AM Neopian Time. Many of our
members are still asleep. Shhh...they get cranky if you wake them.
The fact is that while we do have the most active board in Neopia, occasionally it actually quiets down a little. Not to worry though, it will eventually pick up.
Believe me. In my search for news, I often have to wade through 50 pages a day just to get the info I need. Many messages are just complaints that the board is too quiet. This makes it even more difficult to cull the good info from the "junk". If the board is quiet, and you feel like talking, either head for the Neopets Boards or try Neodaq. You'll make my job, and my reporters jobs, a lot easier. Thanks.
(Editors Note: The opinion expressed in the above editorial is not necessarily the opinion of the entire guild. Thank you, and "be excellent to each other!")
It only takes a second or two. Thanks.
