Writing about fiction - In-universe perspective should not be used when writing about fiction. In-universe perspective includes plots framed as biographies and the birth and death dates of fictional characters. Instead, use perspective of the real world.
Neopets was a good articles nominee, but did not meet the good article criteria at the time. There are suggestions below for improving the article. Once these issues have been addressed, the article can be renominated. Editors may also seek a reassessment of the decision if they believe there was a mistake.
This article is written in British English, which has its own spelling conventions (colour, travelled, centre, realise, defence), and some terms used in it are different or absent from other varieties of English. According to the relevant style guide, this should not be changed without broad consensus.
Does anyone else still edit this regularly? I've been making some major changes to it over the last couple weeks to get this to be a better article, but I honestly can't walk the line between comprehensive and overly detailed. I've learned more about Neopets while editing this article than could or should be included and it's hard to draw the line sometimes. Some things still in need of improvement:
Lead is lacking and needs to be rewritten, probably after the rest of the article finds its place.
Reception definitely still needs improvement.
Images relevant to the article needs to be added. The homepage screenshot doesn't seem to be pertinent and the NeoHome screenshot doesn't illustrate much. It could probably do with just two relevant images aside from the logo. More is probably too much since it's copyrighted content.
References need to be updated since I've found a few dead ones. Also, the Neopets site seems to have take out any mention of the original creators of the site. Since bots aren't allowed on those parts of the site, some information has been lost.
I'm iffy about the Gameplay section. Gameplay is so broad with respect to Neopets that it's hard to maintain a comprehensive view without being too detailed. Also iffy about the History section with respect to Altador Cup. Not sure how many references are needed or what still needs references since it almost appears to be over-referenced. I'm a little too close to the article to be able to see any major problems, but I'm still working on the article as it still needs work. I'd like to be able to get this to good quality before a peer review and a GA push. Peer review would probably give a good outsider view. --SquidsandChips 22:27, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
Just making this as a open sandbox discussion about how we can improve the reception section. It's badly outdated, and could use some TLC. What does everyone think? Houtz96 (talk) 02:45, 8 May 2013 (UTC)
