Not really. The community is less annoying, there is alot less aka no scamming, and we have alot more unique features. For example, pet slots allow you to get more than four pets without making a side account smile_tongue.gif. Thats pretty cool
Yeah id definitely choose icepets over neo any day

Aside from that, welcome to the site~! i hope you enjoy it here smile_grin.gif

Better community, different art style, active staff. I see no similarities. Just improvements.

Welcome to the gang! if you need anything, please message me.

we are more of a close knit family! neopets doesnt let you fund pets, colors, items, etc, they control everything, they freeze you because you have a big family and have more than one account on the same ip address...

This site is WAY better!!

This site is different than Neopets. The community here is a bit smaller but friendlier (imo). Icepets also allows users to buy art towards the site. So if you want to pay for a pet design you want, you may see your ideal pet here after you donate :]

I can see where you're coming from, because both sites have:
- Shops that you can restock
- Pets you can play with and feed
- Flash Games
- Quests
- Bank Accounts
- Boards

But I see way more differences, plus IcePets has some unique features I haven't seen on any other site. Like the Token Dabu, and the whole idea of tokens; that's something you only find here. Also, when you change your pets species or colour, you can still use any species/colour combination your pet has had before. The boards also look nicer and have a really friendly community, whereas most of Neo's is full of "n00bs" and trolls.
And one thing I really like is how nice the staff are; on Neopets they're totally ban happy.

All petsites came after Neo, so technically they're all 'copies' in that regard, but each petsite has its own little differences and unique features that set it apart. I don't think it matters that all petsites share some similarities, because everyone gets attached to and enjoys different ones anyway.

Pretty much every petsite has that. =P

I don't think it's a knockoff. Some ideas may be borrowed but either way this site is a lot more friendly imo, and the community here is much more tight knit >.<

I vote no. Neopets isnt the only pet site on the internet, and though it may have similar qualities there are very big differences.

The people here are more welcoming and friendly

I have yet to witness actual drama on the boards or rude comments being thrown around at others for absolutely no reason other then annoying trolls

we can have mature conversations here and do not get banned for silly reasons,

we can contact the staff through messaging and chat with them on the boards

the colours are more original, in my opinion and the art isnt boring like Neopets has gotten to be

you can get a custom avatar which I absolutely love *as you can tell* it allows us to be original and unique

we can change our pets name if we dont want it anymore from the ICE shop

we can have more then 4 or 5 pets, we have an unlimited amount if you buy a pet slot key

restocking is much easier on here, but at the same time is still a challenge. The count down makes it a lot easier rather then refreshing in hopes of an item showing up

when you lend out items, they are returned all of the time unlike Neo, I have never heard of something being scammed here

the users here actually value their pets and down disown them to the pound like Neopets, I really never see pets in the adoption section


This place is just all around better.

Taking care of a virtual pet is not Neopet's original idea.
We don't have side accounts here. We can't ~dress up our pets~, the boards are much less strict and the community is not annoying.
Icepets actually did make a 'pay for this item' thing without it being annoying. 'I.E. ~buy~ clothes and pay for this premium thing for more neopets!.
Far less games, but doesn't need the games to be fun.
Quests are fun to do, earning points isn't nearly as hard to do.

I wouldn't say knockoff.

But at one point it looked like this site was trying to be like Neopets, unintentional or not.

I remember it said somewhere on the site along the lines of "Welcome to a fun Neopets alternative!"

Thanks goodness they took to the suggestion to remove it. And there was also a forum in the suggestions with a list of things that could be changes to make the site more unique.

PET CLOSET!

Ok, that is 2 but ok. Where else can you change your pet into ANY previous colour?
