April Fools Jokes



Why this page?
Every year on April 1st The Neopets Team tries to pull everyone's leg by changing something to the site that is rather radical. For example in 2006 they told everyone they would have to start paying taxes for every page load. We decided to start making a log of TNT's April fools jokes, starting April 1st, 2007. From the years before 2007 we've tried to gather some information to give you insights in the older jokes.

With the navigation below you can go through the April Fools of previous years.

Neopian Net Worth Calculator
This years April Fools was in the form of the Neopian Net Worth Calculator. This supposed calculator was to sift through the value of your account and allow you to be accepted into a few different clubs.

326



Welcome to the Neopian Net Worth calculator, a simple way to quickly and accurately assess your net worth on Neopia.

This calculator effectively takes into account various aspects of your activities on Neopets to determine your social and economic standing, as well as how you rank against other Neopians. Please wait a few minutes while your results are determined.

Note: Your results will not be affected by which pet is currently active, as the calculator is designed to determine your worth as a user, not your pet's worth.



Apply with the details of your net worth for a chance to be accepted into one of the following clubs:



Inner Circle


Chic UCs


Paintbrushes Aplenty


Club Lutari


The Connoisseur


The calculator would continue to run and never actually finish checking with fine detail many aspects of your account. The possible things it was "checking" on are listed below.

  • Counting your Neopoints...
