Welcome to the Frequently Asked Questions section of our site. We received lost of Neomails every week, so please check here before Neomailing your questions to us.
CAN I HAVE NEOPOINTS/ITEMS? CAN I BORROW AN
Unfortunately, we cannot just give items or Neopoints to anyone who asks. If we did, we'd be broke! We also do not loan items to anyone. We do, however, have competitions from time to time which award Neopoints to visitors, so keep checking back. The only time we will ever donate is to the MONEY TREE so that new users can benefit.
CAN YOU PLACE A LINK TO MY SITE ON YOUR
Probably not. I like to make sure that only the most reliable and essential sites are linked to, since many sites will just link to any site that asks them too. When visitors check out the Neopets Hive's "Links" page, they'll find links to pretty much everything the Neopets Hive itself can't provide - daily news, a Battledome database, an item database, a Neopet color database, Neoquest help, etc. Unfortunately, many sites don't last too long, and keeping up a Links page up-to-date can become time consuming for pretty much any webmaster. So, for my convenience, but more importantly, for the convenience of the visitors to this site, I only link to sites I know they can trust and I'm fairly certain they'll find useful.
If you think your site has something others don't, and your site has got a reasonable reputation, then go ahead and let me know about it. Maybe after a little while, I'll find your site essential to success on Neopets :)
HOW DO YOU GIVE OUT PRIZES DURING HIVE
After a Neopets Hive contest, I Neomail the people who have earned Neopoint prizes and ask them to put a Bottle of Sand in their shop for the amount of their prize. After a day or two, I go to each of their shops and buy the Bottles of Sand. This works out well for both of us because they probably have an extra Bottle of Sand lying around, and we need the Bottles of Sand to restock our shops. Essentially, everybody wins!
IF YOU'RE THE ONLY ONE WHO WORKS ON THE
NEOPETS HIVE, HOW COME YOU ALWAYS SAY "WE" IN YOUR POSTS AND NEOMAILS?
Good question. When someone asks me a question about me, personally, I respond with "I". However, when people ask me about the site, or when I'm posting news, I usually say "we did this" or "we recently learned that" because I'm speaking of both myself and the Neopets Hive in general.
CAN I WORK FOR YOUR SITE?
Even though maintaining this site is both difficult and time consuming, it's a lot easier for me to work on the site without a staff. However, if you ever find news that we don't have on the site, and you think it's something we normally cover (see below) then please Neomail me.
WHAT DOES THE NEOPETS HIVE COVER?
Our site currently covers the following topics: Wars, Battledome opponent locations, plots/mysteries, unreleased Battledome opponents, new worlds, and Defenders of Neopia.
CAN I SEND YOU INFORMATION?
Sure! If you have news that is relevant to the topics the Neopets Hive usually covers (see previous question). If we deem the information relevant, we'll gladly credit you on the New Features page. Please do not send us information blatantly stolen from other news sites without crediting them in your Neomail. We will blacklist repeat offenders.
HOW MANY PEOPLE WORK ON YOUR SITE?
I, prince_raptor, am the site's webmaster.
HOW DID YOU GET SO MANY NEOPOINTS?
Whenever I really need Neopoints, I spend a few days playing the games I'm really good at. This gets me 20-25K in Neopoints if I try hard. I've also been fortunate enough to come across some very rare items via Random Events or the Referral Program.
WILL YOU BE MY NEOFRIEND?
I used to accept Neofriend requests, but most of the people never talked to me more than once or twice. As a general rule, I block all Neofriend requests because it's a lot easier for me that way.
WILL YOU JOIN MY GUILD?
Sorry, but I am not interested in joining any guilds.
CAN YOU DESIGN A LAYOUT/PICTURE FOR ME?
Sorry, but I'm very busy with school and this site, so I don't have time to make random pictures or layouts for people. To be honest, I'm not familiar with the coding required for guilds, so I couldn't help even if I wanted to.
WHAT PROGRAM DID YOU MAKE YOUR WEBSITE WITH?
WHAT PROGRAM DO YOU USE TO MAKE YOUR
CAN I USE PICTURES/INFORMATION FROM THE
NEOPETS HIVE ON MY SITE OR IN MY GUILD?
Feel free to use information or pictures from this site, but ONLY if you credit the Neopets Hive with providing it.
HOW DID YOUR NEOPET GET SO STRONG?
Starbladez has spent a lot of time at the Lab Ray and the Mystery Island Training School. Winter Scratch Cards have raised his level significantly.
IF YOU LIKE EYRIES SO MUCH, WHY IS YOUR
NEOPET A BORI?
Starbladez was originally a blue Eyrie... for two years I brought him to the Lab Ray, which has repeatedly changed his color and species. Then the Neopets Team made it possible for users to transform their Neopets into a Bori for a very limited amount of time. I took advantage of the opportunity and transformed Starbladez from a Shadow Kau into a VERY rare Ice Bori. Eventually, I'm going to make him a Royalboy Eyrie, but I might start taking him to the Lab Ray first to boost up his stats.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE GAMES?
Web of Vernax, Zurroball, Sakhmet Solitaire, Pyramids, Dubloon Disaster, and a few others.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE NEOPETS
HIVE AND THE KASS HIVE AND THE VIRTUPETS HIVE?
This site is the Neopets Hive. However, from time to time, plots on the Neopets site adversely affect us for a short period of time and alter our appearance and content. When the Battle for Meridell was going on, Kass used the Hive to scare away potential opponents. Now, Dr. Sloth plans to do the same. If Dr. Sloth is repeated, hopefully things will return to normal and the Neopets Hive will be good as new.
