Neopian Times Editorial Database

The Neopian Times Editorial is a (usually) weekly column hosted by The Neopets Team that answers questions direct from Neopians. Unfortunately, these Q&A's are not easily searched on the Neopets site, so we've created our own searchable database. Convenient for looking up past answers!

To search, just type something in the box below! (The fewer words, the better... usually.)

Heya TNT! So I put up a thing that says to get graphics, go to my site at whatever site it was. A few hours later I got a warning from you guys telling me to take it down or something, so I took it down. Then I clicked on someone else's Petpage (we'll call her Bob) and they had the same thing! Only it was to her site, and she hasn't been taken down! Why should I have to take it down if they don't? Personally I don't think that is very fair. My site is a Neopets fan site, so like you have said before, we can put the link with spaces in and such. Although mine was a freewebs one. Are those not allowed, too? Thanks TNT and please remove my username. ~[removed]

First of all, NO outside links are allowed, period. We only stated that we sometimes let links on ULs/Petpages/Etc slide when they are to well-known and historically trouble-free fansites since that's the truth, but that doesn't mean it's not against the rules. Links on the chat boards are not allowed at all, regardless of the site. (Everyone, please read those previous sentences very carefully and consider what we mean. We're trying to be nice and give you guys a break with the strict rules, but if all it's causing is confusion we'll just have to remove all links.) Freewebs sites in particular are among those that are at the very top of our warning list. This is because freewebs has historically been used and abused by scammers and are not tolerated at all, regardless of the content of the site. We're just not going to risk it. Perhaps your site can be placed on Petpages? As far as the other site, you didn't leave the username, so we can't say why it is or isn't down. Often others' sites are known to be benign enough that a monitor prefers to focus on larger matters at hand, or perhaps it was just never reported. Also, (and this goes for just about all warnings and stuff) please consider this scenario:

Think of a monitor as a teacher of a class with thousands of students. Billy is picking his nose and gets reprimanded, while on the other side of the classroom Bobby is cheating off of Sally's homework and gets off scot-free. While Billy may feel it was silly of him to be warned while Bobby is doing something much worse, nose picking still isn't allowed, and Bobby's poor behavior simply wasn't spotted by the teacher at that time. Eventually we're sure Bobby will get sent to the principal for his bad deeds, but every bad action simply can't be spotted by the teacher at all times.


Stop picking your nose! *whap*
