**'''Onion Glitch''': Whenever certain words (likely depending on length) are posted, followed by a hard return, an underscore would appear after it. If the word was followed by a punctuation mark, the underscore would appear before it. The word must begin with ''on'', but some shorter phrase, such as ''only'' do not cause this glitch. Words such as ''online'', and of course ''onion'', do, however.

Summary of the boards and what users can expect in each, and what is primarily talked about

The NeoBoard is a collection of boards which users can post messages to each other around the world pertaining to special topics. Several staff members named Moderators look over the NeoBoards, making sure users are following the rules. Users can also self-moderate by reporting a message to moderators which they think is unsuitable for Neopets. There is also a filter which prevents a user from using profanity or lewd conduct on the site. However, many users often use symbols or spaces or a combo of them to use profanity, and it isn't filtered.

Forum types

There are many different boards which can be posted on.

Main forums

techomaster.gif

Avatars/NeoSignatures - Want to show off your avatar or need help getting secret ones? How about NeoHTML and NeoSig help? This is the place to discuss avatars and sigs! NOTE: Item pools are a scam and are not allowed!

Discussions include the method of obtaining new avatars, help on obtaining avatars, designing a font compatible with certain avatars, scattered Font discussion, and games.

battle.gif

Battledome - Find a battle partner! Get weapon information. Anything and everything Battledome is in here.

Many announcements regarding recent accomplishments in the battledome, due to the fact that it is the home of some of the wealthiest users and strongest pets. Usually, if there are any problems with hackers or with duplicated items, the members of this chat are the first ones affected.

bc.gif

Beauty Contest - Advertise your Beauty Contest entries, and see others you can vote for. (Remember, you can only advertise or start topics regarding YOUR OWN Beauty Contest entry!)

This board is made for discussion regarding Neopet Customisation Beta, including topics about the pet redraws and wearable clothes items.

This board consists mostly of users identifying themselves as 'emo' or 'goth', and is typically used for general chat.

newbies.gif

This is the place to go to get help using an account. Help Chat is more likely to be on topic.

quests.gif

Quests - Need help with a quest? The kind folks in here are willing to lend a hand!

rp.gif

The main purpose of this board is a venue for the players to roleplay.

The board consists mainly of people who spend their time trading for profits.

Premium boards

The premium boards are only accessible by premium users.

premiumcharter.gif

Charter Members - A board for longtime Premium Members. If you can see this board, that's you!

This board is only available when a premium user stays for more than three months.

premium.gif

Main Hall - Hang out with other premium members and discuss the finer points of Neopian life. (As always, please keep topics Neopets related. Thanks!)

premiumgames.gif

Spotlights and Games - Get some input on your gallery spotlight entry or get help on that tough game avatar. Your spotlight and game banter goes here.

Other boards

There are other boards which are part of the Neoboard, but are either hidden or only appear at certain times.

Plot - (Random Title)

The Plot board's title and content changes to whatever the current plot is at the time. It's believed the link always remains the same, but is only active when a plot is open. Past titles included:

  • volcano.gif Volcano Plot - Unknown text of board summary... Needs to be added
  • Hannah and the Ice Caves - Unknown text of board summary... Needs to be added
  • curseofmaraqua.gif Curse of Maraqua - Unknown text of board summary... Needs to be added
  • lostdesert.gif Lost Desert - Who's that fortune teller? And what's up with that guy on the Uni already? Talk about the current plot here!
  • acp.gif Altador - A mysterious book with nothing in it? A hidden observatory in the Hall of Heroes? What's going on in Altador?!
  • acl.gif Altador Cup - Sixteen teams from all over Neopia are competing, but only one will win the coveted Altador Cup. Will it be your team?
  • thegaze.gif The Cyodrake's Gaze - A mysterious ship appears in Neopia and the crew needs your help! You will help them, right?
  • taleofwoe.gif The Tale of Woe - Wander the Haunted Woods with Gilly and uncover the truth behind the mysterious Tale of Woe.
  • mip.gif Journey to the Lost Isle - A journal and a tablet lead a very dedicated professor on a journey to find the mysterious lost isle!
  • acp.gif Altador Cup II - Discuss the latest match-ups and taunt your rivals... the Altador Cup is back!

Non-plot boards

  • jelly.gif Jelly World - Jelly World? That's just a myth. It doesn't exist. Off-topic boards are considered spam and WILL be deleted. Stick to the topic, please.

An unofficial board not shown on the NeoBoards page, but it exists nonetheless as a hidden link.

  • sillymynci.gif Neopet Customisation Beta! - Questions, comments, discussions... have at it. We'll be lurking. *cackle*

The Neopet Customisation Beta! board was created for users who were testing the beta version a new neopet customizing program. It was removed with the update to Neopets 2.0.

Trivia

  • It is possible to make invisible boards on the NeoBoards by using square brackets to make what is written be processed as tags. This is a freezable offence.
  • There are several easter eggs that appear when certain messages are posted.
    • Ghostbusters!: Posting 5514344, the telephone number for the Ghostbusters in the movie of the same name, causes Ghostbusters! to appear in its place
    • Onion Glitch: Whenever certain words (likely depending on length) are posted, followed by a hard return, an underscore would appear after it. If the word was followed by a punctuation mark, the underscore would appear before it. The word must begin with on, but some shorter phrase, such as only do not cause this glitch. Words such as online, and of course onion, do, however.
    • Jelly World: Posting in the URL for Jelly World causes it to be blocked as if it was an off-site link.
    • P00 Glitch: Although no longer active, posting P00 used to cause P00 to be displayed in its place.
    • Report me!: If the phrase this is not a scam is posted, it is replaced automatically by This is a scam! Report me!.
    • Bikinis: If the phrase bikini is posted, it is replaced with cardigan, presumably to stop inappropriate conversations. .
    • Talk like a Pirate: On talk like a pirate day, some words would come out as common pirate words. For example, "see" turned to "spy" and "n00b" turned to "landlubber."
