Random events are exactly that, they are random. Sometimes you will get loads of them, some days you won't get any... The more pages you visit, the more likely you are to get a random event.
Why is Punchbag Bob in disguise?
Poor Punchbag kept having Neopets running up to him and attacking him on his time off, so he decided to wear a disguise in the Battledome so nobody would recognise him when he was walking down the street :)
There are a lot of people who say that the highest bidder in the Trading Post will get their account, is this true?
Nope, this is another scam to get you to bid thousands of Neopoints for nothing. You may not sell, trade or buy a NeoPets account or Pets for Neopoints, money, NeoPets' Items, or anything else. Plus it doesn't make sense, if they really are getting rid of their account, why would they want thousands of Neopoints? Just report anybody you see doing this to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Can I have a contest in my guild?
I am afraid we cannot allow any contests anywhere on Neopets. There is no way to make sure that the contests are legitimate. The majority of contest winners are just friends of the shop owner, or fake accounts. We know a few people did award prizes to real winners, but there is no way for us to check this so we have no choice but to ban them completely.

The third Tyrannian map didn't really have anything on it. To make it easier for everyone to get to things we moved all the active links from the Volcano to the Plateau. Now it should be much faster to find games such as Kacheekers, and the Tyrannian Weaponary.
On the chat boards, people are saying that if you AIM (Aol Instant Messanger) the a certain username, and you give him your password, he will give you 500,000. Is this true?

Am I allowed a contest in my shop?
Unfortunately the vast majority of shop contests are scams. If any user wins a prize it is normally one of the shop owners other accounts. Because there is no real way for us to monitor if a contest is legitimate or not, we have decided to ban all contests. This is to protect innocent players that could be tricked into purchasing over-priced items. Apologies if you are a shop owner that ran a honest contest, but you should understand why we are doing this.
If I report a shop, will it get frozen straight away?
No, reporting a shop just alerts us to check it out. We will only take action if the shop/user is doing something wrong.
Someone said they would give me a secret if I gave them an item, should I do it?
No, this is yet another scam to trick you into giving away a rare item, or to buy an over-priced item. There are no secrets to becoming a millionaire. The best way to do this is to open your own shop, sell things at fair prices and play games.
