You have probably noticed those little cute images which show how many days, weeks, months or years you have been playing on Neopets. In case you didn't know, they are called Shields. When you register, you are a Newbie for 2 days. On the third day, your Shield will change for the first time. After that, every week the Shield changes until your account is one month old. Then, counting begins. You won't even notice and soon your account will be one year old...
It doesn't matter how old your account is, but isn't it nice when everyone can see it, including you? Have you ever wondered what will your shield look like when you are, for example, 3 years old? If so, here is a list of all Shields, starting from the Newbie Shield to the 15 and 1/2 years old Shield.
Even though these Shields look cute and you can't wait until next month so your Shield will change, you shouldn't judge or consider someone "young and inexperienced" by their Shield. In the end, this is just a game and the age of an account doesn't matter.
Next sleep in 0h, 45m, 43s.
