    How do you think neopets is doing business wise?

    Just a random topic: Do you think they are making enough profit? I wonder how much they make quarterly. Do you think they will shut down eventually? If so, give a guess of when? They used to have so many players, 30,000 plus in one given day, now it's so much lower. I guess overtime more people will leave.

    For now I think they're doing fine. They have a pretty sizable NC addict base which I'm sure gives them lots of revenue? And they have players who play casually on and off, maybe throw a few bucks in here and there.

    A lot of people have been/will be leaving but I think they can make up for the losses there with new members they draw in.

    Neopets will collapse, once people realise NC is worthless eye candy that can't even be eaten. It accounts for 30% of neopets' profits.

    If they have enough money to run their server and pay their staff, it's all good I guess?

    ;O

    If they are dying, we just need to run more bots for them to help with ad payments~

    they would get page impressions which make them look more active though which would mean they can probably charge a little bit more for ads than they otherwise would be able to.

    I think they will collapse in time. They've lasted for too long for such a game

    ^ Not really, you look at the other virtual pet sites, marapets is lame and icepets have around 40 active players last time I saw.

    Neopets don't have that much competition if one is looking for a virtual pet site.
