Neopets ARE at Comic-Con!
  • Posted by Herdy
  • Posted on July 14, 2018, 5:07 am NST


After the announcement of the private Comic Con Private After Party last week, this week's editorial has confirmed that members of TNT will be at Comic Con itself!

Comic Con is almost here! We will be there, will you? If you are be sure to stop by our booth #5566 to chat with us and get a chance to win some awesome swag! We will be boothing everyday from the 19th-22nd so come see us!


This is part of the official Comic Con, rather than the private event, so if you want to go see them you will need an actual Comic Con badge. This might cause some confusion for those going to the con since Neopets and Jumpstart don't have a listing on Comic Con's own exhibitor listings - in fact, booth 5566 is listed as belonging to Fantom Studios.

But never fear! Fantom Studios is the trade name for Chris Williams, who happens to be Jumpstart's Creative Director. It seems likely that the rest of TNT are piggybacking on his booth this year. You'll be able to find it just inside the conventon hall from the Lobby G entrance, near Artist's Alley.

If you are attending either the Convention itself or the Neopets After Party, and want to share any photos from the events, we would love to put together an article with your photographs and commentary. (See our previous Comic-Con writeups.) If you're interested, please submit this form and we'll be in touch ASAP.

Earlier this morning, hardtotame took to the Neoboards and hosted a Q&A from 4-5AM NST. (Her next one will be next Friday, July 20th from 9:30-10:30PM NST, but will take place on the Ideas/Suggestions Neoboard.)

Here are the highlights:

Premium
Regarding 6th slot pet transfers and Premium trading cards:
I have made a note of these issues, and I will bring them up with the team.

Regarding the annual Premium sale:
The Premium Sale will be later this month. I don't think we have a specific date in mind as of now.


Return of Broken/Retired Site Features
Regarding the return of Invasion of Meridell (don't get your hopes up):
Considering the fact that it needs some bug fixes before it can make a comeback, I cannot answer this until it is evaluated by a programmer. However, I can have someone take a look at it.

Regarding the return of other features:
Bilge Dice - yes, this should make a comeback soon.
Lenny Conundrum and Site Spotlight - nice idea, but we've already got our hands full with the competitions we're currently running, so we won't be taking up any others until we think we're ready for them.

Regarding the return of Key Quest (don't get your hopes up!!11!):
We have not given up hope on this. We don't have a solution ready, but we're looking at various options. We cannot bring back the old one, but we can try to recreate it, and that's what we're looking at.

To clarify, I did not say "KeyQuest is coming back". I said it MAY come back.

Hey TNT... mobile game?

Regarding World Challenges:
I have brought this up before with the programmers, I'll throw some weight behind it now. :) Can't say whether it can be fixed until they figure out why it's broken.


Retired Stamps
Regarding the re-release of retired stamps:
Re-release of stamps - We've collected all your suggestions, but we haven't actually had a meeting to discuss them. We'll get to that once things have settled down in office.


Site Events
Regarding being able to use leftover points from the Charity Corner 2018 perk shop:
Yes, the design is ready and a programmer has started work on it.

Regarding captchas returning to the Altador Cup and on what games:
Can't say now.

Regarding the next plot and when it'll arrive:
I'm not going to repeat the mistake we did with TWR... When we're ready with one, you'll know about it

Regarding the Journey to the Lost Isle, remember how it was supposed to continue?
It had never even crossed my mind to continue The Journey to the Lost Isle, but now that you mention it, I'll take a look at it.


Max Number of Accounts
There has been some debate recently about the number of accounts you can have:
The maximum number of accounts a user is allowed to hold is 5. There should be an official statement about this in the editorial this week.


"Unpaid Volunteers"
Frequently users ask TNT to enlist community members as "unpaid volunteers" to work for the site (this probably has too many legal questions to ever be a good idea), and hardtotame addresses that:
The talent and commitment of our userbase has not escaped our notice. We have discussed ways in which we could open the site to user-created content, but it's not in the form that you describe, and I don't see it happening any time soon.

User-submitted images for the Caption Contest would probably be a good place to start, especially considering this has been done before!

Bug Reports
Regarding how they're received and worked:
In general, we get daily bug reports, but some days we're so swamped with other work that we don't have time to look into them, and then they're lost under newer bugs that come in. Bigger issues are reported regularly and so we see them, but smaller ones may be lost, and bringing them to my attention when I'm here can help. Sometimes it's a matter of prioritizing, and there too I can help.

again, about bugs and reporting them - We have recently started working with http://www.neopets.com/~Ereza for wearable-related issues and http://www.neopets.com/~Keiynan for item-related issues. You can contact them to get your bug added to the list, and we'll work through the list to fix issues as and when possible.

Regarding the empty Healing Springs shop:
A programmer is looking into the Healing Springs right now. I don't expect it to take more than 24 hours to fix, but as always, I can't be sure.


Battledome
Regarding when the first Battledome fixes will arrive:
We're looking at small fixes we can do quickly. The first one MAY be Punchbag Sid or one of the glitches... can't say for sure yet.


Account Purges
Regarding when the next one will run:
I don't know. I'll try and find out what's happening there.


Boring Books/Yucky Food
Regarding the "features" that prevent your pet from reading books or eating food:
I'll see what can be done about the boring books, but just so you know, this is lower down on the priority list for now.

Update from TNT
  • Posted by Herdy
  • Posted on July 11, 2018, 7:41 am NST

TNT staff member hardtotame has been posting a lot of updates on the Site Events boards over the last few months. Today, she's posted to formalise the hours she'll be available there:

It's getting tedious for me to have to go back and keep checking my old posts to see if you've left me new comments there... Instead, I'll just make it a point to be on the boards for an hour every Friday, from 9.30-10.30 PM NST one week, and 4-5 AM NST the next week, alternatingly. We can chat then, and if you don't catch me one week, you'll know to look out for me the next week. What say?

This is in an effort to curb her old boards from being bumped up with new suggestions/errors. From now on, she's arranging to be available for an hour each Friday, alternating time slots each week. See below for official times/places. Although she isn't specific, it is likely that she'll be paying more attention to the Site Events board due to its focus on current happenings around the site.

UPDATE: Official times have been posted for when hardtotame will be available on the Neoboards (and where!)

Hello Neopians far and wide,

Come chat with staffer hardtotame every Friday on the neoboards - just make sure you're at the right place at the right time!

13th Day of the month of Swimming
Time: 4AM - 5AM NST
Place: Site Events

20th Day of the month of Swimming
Time: 9.30 PM - 10.30 PM NST
Place: Ideas/suggestions

27th Day of the month of Swimming

So save the dates!
Be there or be square...nothing wrong with square though we don't judge, it's 2018.
