Neo-April Fools Pranks: If your pet still has the pranked version (pie'd, different species/color, zapped, slimed), you will need to Customize your neopet and save to remove the prank. If you choose to leave the prank on your pet, that is fine as well (:

The State of Virtual Worlds
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on April 11, 2010, 10:49 pm NST

We just came across an interesting article in the New York Times that discusses Kung Fu Panda World. The article was published today, April 11th.


Look! I have my own Kung Fu Pandaphant Puppet!

The article announces DreamWorks' entrance into the realm of virtual online worlds with their release of Kung Fu Panda World. For as little as $5.95 a month, you can live in the world inspired by the movie Kung Fu Panda and learn kung fu. (Now where's Illy? She'll be pleased.)

The article connects back to Neopets by reporting some startling facts about the site's visitors. According to the article, Neopets logged 2.1 million unique visitors in March 2010, which is a 25% loss compared to March 2009. In other words, in the past year, Neopets has lost about 25% of its fanbase.

Similarly, Webkinz suffered a 58% drop with 2.7 million unique visitors logged (still more visitors than Neopets, however), and Club Penguin suffered a 7% loss with 6.7 million unique visitors logged in March 2010. Strangely, Webkinz and Club Penguin both have more pay-to-play features than Neopets does.

The question remains... where in the world did all of those people go? And why did they leave? And specifically, why did all of those visitors leave Neopets? Discuss in our comments. :)
