They made their own bed...? If that makes sense in English
I lol'ed at some comments in reddit about this.
Honestly, I expected this to happen sooner. What the fuck did they expect? The 12 year old innocent kids that played Neopets 10-15 years ago are now adults, but Neopets continues to treat their players like kids. And when real money gets involved, people have the right to take legal actions if get's to that, and it got to that after years of complainings when they did nothing to resolve the issue and everything they ever give us is silence. I'm so glad I stopped giving them money so many years ago. If it was the other way around, like it happens so many times, the people always gets screwed by big companies. If we pay for something we have the right to receive the service/item we paid for.
Part of me feels sorry for the people that lost their money, and it doesn't matter how much, if $5 or $500, but -and especially these last couple of years, after KNOWING all the issues with NC and Premium- why would anyone give money to Neopets, it's beyond me
Those reddit comments were ridiculous: "THANKS ASSHOLES NOW NEOPETS IS PROBABLY GOING TO SHUT DOWN BECAUSE JUMPSTART IS GOING TO LOSE ALL THE MONEY THEY HAVE LEFT"
"PEOPLE SHOULD BE MORE PATIENT AND SUPPORTIVE OF JUMPSTART TO FIX THE PAYMENT BUGS"
^ No, they've been patient far too long.
Neopets has been a cesspool for years, I say it's finally time to kill off the site. Neopets has never been the same once Adam and Donna left and I'm not just saying that for nostalgia purposes. As soon as they stopped churning off great BD plots, switched the ticket system, kept freezing users and refused to communicate, and continued to treat everyone like idiots, the site went completely downhill and lost a majority of active users. I remember when there used to be a million active users at any time during the day.
There is no excuse for the site with so little active users to take months to years to respond to a ticket.
