Metaverse Moderator Encourages Doxxing Alleged "Raider"
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on October 12, 2021, 2:41 pm NST

UPDATE, October 14th: As of today, xBunny has been completely removed from the server. In addition, moderator Sake (responsible for refusing to take action on complaints of misgendering a few weeks ago) has also been removed from the team.



UPDATE, 7:42 PM NST: An announcement has been posted regarding the situation with Neopets Metaverse moderator xBunny, responsible for what we shared earlier:

Even though the screenshot contains Discord profile information that is public, we acknowledge that sharing their details may result in them being targeted by others where were not made aware of that information, we apologize for this behaviour and as a result of this @xBunny will be removed from the moderation team.

At time of writing, xBunny has not been removed from the server or had their "Team" role (which give them server admin abilities) removed.

As a reminder, that's now the second moderator that has been fired for inappropriate behavior. But who's counting?



It's been 0 days since the last set of Metaverse nonsense, and here we are again with more unprofessional behavior—this time from recent addition to the team, moderator xBunny.

Earlier this afternoon, a group of users allegedly "raided" the Neopets Metaverse Discord server to spam messages and generally be an annoyance. No one here at Jellyneo was able to personally witness it, but as a result, the entire server was put into read-only mode, and the following announcement was made:

xBunny, [12:38 PM NST]
Hey @everyone

Sorry to announce that most of the channels are currently on lockdown due to the raid and spams by some irresponsible group of people. I've cleaned up the spams so don't worry, we'll have it back up soon as soon. Some channels are still open at the moment. [pepe the frog emoji]

About an hour later, the server was re-opened. And this is where the scandal comes in. Moderator xBunny saw fit to post a screenshot of one of the alleged spammers with their Discord profile open and Instagram handle visible. We're unsure as to what value this post brought, other than slyly encouraging the community to dox this individual.

Here's a screenshot of the post—the blurry redactions are courtesy of Jellyneo. These screenshots were originally posted unblurred.

And the original image file xBunny posted

Only when Jellyneo's own Herdy pointed out the obvious poor behavior from a moderator was the message removed:


This represents yet another situation in a pattern of unprofessional and poor behavior by the Neopets Metaverse team. And, gleefully, xBunny is getting paid to dox users:


Yesterday, unrelated to today's events, xBunny also claimed to be "professionally" doing this since 2017:


Call up Webster's dictionary, because apparently we have a new definition of "professional" that needs adding!

Once again: Jellyneo is calling for the immediate removal and disbanding of the entire Neopets Metaverse team. From homophobia, to posting R-rated content, to calling the entire Neopets community dumb, and to using alt-right dogwhistles in social media posts—phew, let me catch my breath here—this team needs to go. Is this who you want representing Neopets?

We hate to say it, but we will continue to bring you updates on the misfortunes of the Neopets Metaverse project.
