As Jellyneo heads into 2011, we'd like to take this opportunity to talk about something important:

An Important Announcement

Help Keep JN Up And Running

This was a terrific year for us--we had over 87 million page views across all sections and departments of the site (not just the front page). A lot of that can no doubt be contributed to the Faeries' Ruin plot, which we were very excited to see and cover in our guide. However, it also meant we had to pay a bit more in server costs, to ensure the site did not crash at an inopportune time. As such, we are beginning to run low on the funds that we received in 2010.

As of right now, Jellyneo only has enough money to last until February 2011.

We prefer not having any third party advertisements on JN, so if you have some extra spending money, please consider making a donation. There are two ways to help:
  1. By using PayPal

  2. By purchasing web hosting using our referral code
Our goal is to raise $2,000 (US dollars) to cover all of our web costs for this year.

Donations go straight toward paying our hosting bill--we cannot cash it out. We do not see your personal information, only a summary that includes your e-mail address.

Full details are on our Donate to Jellyneo page, which will display how much we have raised for 2011.

Shiny, brand new trophies will also be awarded if you donate more than $10 (US dollars). These will look different from the 2010 trophies and will appear in your JN trophy cabinet.

What if you cannot or do not want to donate? That is quite alright, but you can still help by spreading the word about this announcement. Jellyneo is a site run by Neopets fans for Neopets fans. The staff members here are all volunteers. We love what we do and appreciate all the support we get from our visitors. Thanks for a great year!

A brand new award will be available this year. A dung trophy (as seen in the news banner) will likely be awarded to the winner of the worst of 2010. (Perhaps Tarla's Tour of Mystery will rank among those. :P )

We pushed a new build, here are the following bugs that should now be fixed:

1)Blank Stage

We have added two new features:
1)Infobubbles - These change the default to show your health/hunger/rest. The tutorial has been updated also to say how this works.
