Marapets Description: Our new Birthday Party events have now started and will finish automatically on September 1st.
Each year we love to throw bigger and better parties at MaraPets. Unfortunately each year the residents of Marada also get one year older and find it increasingly difficult to enjoy the party. All of the excitement (and definitely not the repetitiveness) can be a bit too much for them! With so much of their time spent napping, complaining about how much Marada has changed and getting lost en route, time at the actual Birthday Party is limited. Invitations to the Birthday Party were sent out weeks ago but most partygoers didn't read it. Those that did have forgotten or don't want to arrive at the party alone.
As you browse and play the site as normal, a 'Birthday Gift' may show up in a box. When you find it, click it and you will earn Seconds to spend at the Birthday Party. If you're lucky, you may even find Account Upgrades Credit. Once you have an Invitation to the Birthday Party (see how to get this below), you can spend the time you have earned there, where MP and Party Bags will fall from the sky. Collect as many as you can before your seconds run out to win these prizes!
The top 16 players who collect the most gifts will receive a Gladys Trading Card and 16,000,000MP! The next 414 players will win a Gladys Trading Card and either 1,000,016MP, 100,016MP, or 16,000MP. Visit any player who is currently Online Now and click the button at the top of their profile to invite them to the party. Each player is different - they could already be at the party, napping (or still completing their Easter Egg Hunt) but will give you either MP or a Pinata prize. Each player can only be invited once every 30 seconds. If you have already earned 60 Seconds or more from the Birthday Hunt, you may find a player who did actually read the RSVP and will give you a copy of their Party Invitation. You can then use your time to party and earn prizes!
We need your help inviting as many online players to the fun! Visit a user's profile and hit the 'Happy Birthday' button and they will be invited to the party. Each player is different - some won't party, some will and others will have the best time ever! The response of the character will depend on what prize you receive. You can only invite a player who is currently online and can only invite the same player once every day. You will receive MP or a Pinata as a prize. Hit said Pinata and a prize or two will fall out. As you browse and play the site as normal, a 'Birthday Gift' may show up in a box. When you find it, click it and you are guaranteed a prize! You can win a Gift Bag, MP, and if you're lucky, Account Upgrades Credit! 15 random players who find 100 or more Gifts will also randomly win a retired Party Costume.
Posting the Birthday Box image on profiles, siggies, etc is confusing to other players and, as usual, is not allowed. If you are asked to remove the image and do not do so, your account may be frozen until the end of the Birthday celebrations.
Poco: Technically, it's a dog. Semantically speaking, dogs are only pets in real life; once it becomes online it becomes a Rusty. Soooo, let's say I took my Plug at the Fasoro Falls. It would be all well and good to call it a Rainbow Plug while I was still in Slater Park (since that's still online), but if I was then to go wandering around the City of Marada, surely that would make it a Baxter?
Blossom: *blank stare*
Poco: Admit it, I do have a point. :P
Blossom: Just get on with the guide!
Poco: Ahem, anyway, what was I saying? Oh yes, how to get a Baxter pet. This is how it's done-- Wait a second... Well, never mind the fact that you can get a Baxter from somewhere special, because it seems as of now there are Baxters that are rarely available at the Minipet Shop. Once some Baxters are found, we'll let you know! 'Til then, it's probably safer just to stick with the tried and true Plug minipet.
You know you want me
You'll never be able to get me again! Teeheeheeheehee!
On 15th August 2004 the site opened for this first time, many people visited from Maraqua and created accounts. Not many of those stayed and instead fled back to Neopets, but those who did stay were in for a big surprise. The site was always growing at furious speeds. From curious, occasional users to those who had decided to make this site their home, everyone was talking about Marapets! The site reached 300 million hits by the 17th of December 2005 which was quite an accomplishment, being only 17 months old at the time.----
Marapets reached its 1st birthday on the 15th of August. As we are now in the second year, we are making many important changes to the site. Over the next few weeks, Marapets will have a lot of its old features upgraded and the whole site will be improved. Be prepared for a lot of changes.
The Terms and Conditions to the site have changed. Please read them.
All users over 13 will now have to verify their account with an email address in order to take advantage of certain parts of the site. There is also now a new Preferences page!
A new News system has been introduced. It will now be much easier to view old news. We have deleted all news from last year as it was filled with broken images and wrong information.
This is basically a list of notable accomplishments from the site itself (please be advised that this is not related at all to activity releases, games or pets, but more like web analysis)----
