Modeling: December Recap!
  • Posted by Rylon
  • Posted on January 1, 2013, 5:47 am NST

December has been an interesting month with wearables, adding both the Advent Calendar and Stocking Stufftacular into the already hectic schedule of games and NP content! To start with, there were three pets days: Bruce, Wocky & Ogrin!

Bruce: Cool / On The Go | Wocky: Gadgeteer / Warrior | Ogrin: Rebellious / Casual

Regular NP items were scarce in the news, with only two released! We don't need more models for the lovely wig, but there's still a handful left for the Pyjama Bottoms!

Plenty more wearables were released through the Advent Calendar and Holiday Snowball, but we don't actually need models for those items, huzzah! Be sure to check the guide/prize listing for the full details!

Stocking Stufftacular on the other hand, is a whole different kettle of fish! The guide has all of the prizes, those below are purely those we still need models for. Stay tuned for the Community prize, which will be released later this week.

Snowglobes were big in the mall this year, with three sets released!

A new Wonderclaw machine was released, themed after an enchanted forest! Please check the guide out for the full prize listing!

Two capsules were released, with the annual New Years cap and backgrounds highly anticipated! Take a look at the New Year 2012 Celebration Mystery Capsule news post for further details!

A superpack and a mini-pack were released, and we're still after models for both bonus items!

And finally, Key Quest tokens were everywhere through December! While we no longer need models for any of the Bruce or Wocky items, the newly-released Aisha items are still on our list!

As always, your continued help and support make modeling items for use in Wardrobe quite a bit easier! More models means more availability in Wardrobe, as well as a (hopefully) higher score on our Top Modelers leaderboard. There's also several trophies you can earn for your jnAccount, so please help out with any of the items mentioned in this post, or by visiting our list of all remaining items we still need models for!

Kanrik spotted on Neopets Facebook Page!

TNT has posted an image of Kanrik on their Facebook page along with a short description that reads "We'll just leave this here... ;)". Kanrik is mostly known for his involvement in the Hannah and the Ice Caves Plot. What could this mean? Are TNT hinting at a new upcoming plot? Are we going to see the New Battledome be used in a plot?

New Password Reset Flow on Neopets
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on January 4, 2013, 10:10 pm NST

If you read New Features on Thursday, you would have noticed that Neopets is releasing a new password reset feature, and we're happy to announce that the feature is active! We thought we'd explain the new feature a bit and the security benefits that comes with it.

First off, we'd like to applaud Neopets on releasing this new way of resetting passwords. It's much, much more secure than the old system and has quite a few modern security features.

New Flow:
  • To start off, to reset your password, you can click the "Forgot password?" link on the login box on Neopets.com.
  • You must provide your Neopets username to make sure it exists, and if it does, then you must enter a CAPTCHA to confirm you'd like a change.
  • You then receive an email with a special, unique link to reset your password. You also have the option to click a second link that cancels the reset and voids the link.
  • When you click on the link to reset, you are asked for your username.
  • After confirming your username, you are then asked for a new password.
  • A successful reset will get you a second email in your inbox letting you know a change was made.

Security Benefits:
  • The best improvement here is that your password is no longer sent via email! Email is not very secure at all, and can be easily intercepted on its way from Neopets.com to your inbox. Sending your raw password was honestly a pretty terrible system, and we're delighted Neopets has changed it.
  • Another benefit of not being sent your old password is that a hacker will never know what it was in the first place, which can be helpful if you use the same password on multiple websites. (Which is a BIG NO-NO.)
  • When requesting a new password, you're also asked for a CAPTCHA, which should reduce the number of bots sending password requests.
  • When you click the link to reset your password, asking to confirm your username is a great extra step to prevent scammers from trying to guess random password reset URLs.
  • You also have the option of canceling a request to prevent others from using your password reset URL.
  • There are probably a few other things we're missing too.

Bravo again to TNT for introducing this new system! We're looking forward to seeing a more secure Neopia. :)
