Oh wow. I started playing Marapets a few years ago. It was fun while it lasted, but it's not the best virtual pet site.
In the 'Random Chat' forum, yes - pretty much every topic in there is useless. There's like a group of 'popular people' there, and they're not the nicest people I've met on Marapets. Staff don't really communicate with users(but a few of them do ), unlike Aywas you can't message a staffie to say Hi or anything. x[
And it does seem they're on a 'banning' mood or something, :L I got banned for a ridiculous reason! The same thing happened to my friend on there, she got banned as well. -.-
Marapets is throwing down the banhammer now? What? D=
I've been on Mara soo long, nowadays I mainly lurk, though. It was good graphics experience, but now nobody has any interest in even FREEBIES because its all a game of popularity. I mean, I know that generally happens with graphics makers and stuff, but still. It bothers me to no end.
Stealing used to be a HUGE problem, too (as in a couple months ago); not sure if it still is
Sad because I haven't found another pet site to hold my interest =P
I got accused of sharing accounts, when I never did. I had clearly stated that I would possibly be sharing the same IP with friends or family, but yet they banned me. :L  It's kinda a long story. >_<
I started graphics making at Marapets, :3. And Panda, come to Aywas. <3

I don't expect any less from Marapets. They are capitalising on the prommies from Neopets. They need a banhammer and fast.
Even though I love marapets to death and am a member of 4 years, I have to agree with everything that's being said on this thread. I am a Random Chatter never really realised that the topics in there are pointless until now... I guess I just got used to it after awhile. And the whole "popular" thing is kind of annoying too.
ian did target Neopets for a while - which explains his community "lacking" in "quality content".
