When do you think Petpet Park will be out of beta?

Recommended Posts

Or will it ever gain enough traction to truly come out of beta? I don't play it myself, so I don't really have an idea of how popular it is, but whenever I do the PPP daily I see that sidebar: "Beta testers wanted! Petpet Park now in beta!". This is something I've been curious about for a while, actually.

I doubt they'll ever update it to be out of beta, knowing TNT - look at the Neofriends bar:

Still in "beta" since it's come out, as far as I know.

TNT is atrocious when it comes to updating and finishing things, sadly. :/

I was on the petpetpark boards the other day, and lots of people were complaining about the lack of updates & how it might be one of the aspects completely dropped now the ownership has swapped.

 

Which is a shame, but not really the worst thing TNT has done when it comes to giving us something and then not making it work properly

(I'm looking at you keyquest)

I was thinking about KeyQuest as well... Neopets is a HUGE site, and while I think new content is nice, I think they should really make the site more complete and bug free rather than constantly come up with new things. *edit* But to not stray off topic and complete my thought, I don't think it will ever really leave beta. I also haven't heard much about it, so I don't know how popular it is... *goes to NeoBoards*

It probably never will be because I remember ads on tv for it back in 2008 saying it was in beta. I don't think they really touched petpet park very much anyways it's a nice addition but I didn't really like it since it seemed to rely on paying real money at the time.

Oh my gosh, I totally forgot that Neofriends was still in beta too!! That's crazy... Y'all're right though, so much stuff gets left unfinished. I wish they'd focus on fixing up everything that's on the site now instead of adding all these new features.

I personally play PPP. It has changed a lot since 2009ish. They've added membership and they're always adding new quests. They could still slowly be working on it but, nothing major has changed for awhile.

Probably not for a while ;) I used to work for a gaming company that kept all their games "Beta" so they didn't have to immediately fix bugs or be liable for any sort of errors that might occur, since everything was still in "Beta" - it's a problem I see with a lot of free games. If you're not paying to play the game, chances are the developers are going to be a bit slack with fixing things.

But I thought you did pay to play petpet park?

Or did I miss the tiny little "click here for a free account button" when I tried signing up - because all I saw was prices.

They do have paid user privileges, though, but playing it is free, just like MonkeyQuest was. Which is another annoyance of mine when it comes to free games, that they reason a game being free and therefore they aren't in any rush to add new content or fix bugs :/

I feel like we totally called it with this thread on petpet park being dropped.

 

Although Rune, now I know it's free, I would have at least tried it out.

Haha right?? Like, I make this post and then BAM. We hear about the switch. +1 for predicting PPP, -1 for not predicting Habi.

Oddly enough I jointed PPP just last week and now it is going, I hope it doesnt cause problems because the same login details are used for both PPP and neopets .. any thoughts on that?

I joined petpetpark waaaaayyyy back when it first came out.

It served me well. I loved it, there were a lot of people to talk to and it didn't have the rigidness of Neopets.

(Never did like the parkle limit :thumbsdown:)

 

:) I really did like it. I bought the membership for a year, and loved every second of it (Well, most of them! :P)

It was a little sad how most of the stuff turned to membership only :ohno: and I realized how important it was for me to have it.

 

I didn't stay long after that, and only occasionaly check up on it.

I will miss my sparkly Puxa. :crying_blow: Dressing her up was a lot of fun.

Im a bit concerned that I used the log in of my main neopets account to start my petpark login? Im hoping that doesnt cause problems for my neopets account when petpark is closed?

 

anyone know if thats likely to be a problem?

 

There is some info on the latest editorial about petpark and logins and it has made me a bit nervous because it talks about pp taking up a space rather like a side account, so if it is killed as a log in will we lose that neopets account (my main neo account) :sad02:

I don't think it would cause any problems with your account on Neopets. I used the same login info from my main account for petpark. TNT is probably just taking out all petpark accounts so they wouldn't really mess with your main account besides getting rid of that space.

Thanks for that, I do hope you are right I could kick myself now for setting up that PP account with same details but it seemed logical at the time ... ah well

Since Neopets has been bought out, do you think the new company will be more vigilant about coming up with new site content, fixing bugs, and finishing some of the things neopets has started but hasn't finished?
