New Premium Perks Live
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on August 1, 2018, 11:04 am NST

A few new Premium perks are now live!

Customisation Journal
Premium members now have a new Journal available to take snapshots of their Neopet's customisations and give a little description. You can access your Journal on the right side of the Premium toolbar.


The Journal is available for other Neopians to peruse and "Like" your entries. It appears as a new module on your userlookup, underneath of the NC Mall album links. You can also choose who sees your Journal by changing the "Displaying Your Journal" setting under Site Preferences. (Options are visible to all, just neofriends, or no one except you.)

You may take up to 6 snapshots of your Neopets per day. You'll need to wait for another day to take another snapshot if you'd like more.

Also, if you ever end your Premium membership, your journal will no longer allow new entries, but you'll always be able to look back on prior entries you've made.

Change Your Neopet Species
This new addition is very similar to this past year's Charity Corner perk (but with less glitches!) Once every 365 days, you can change the species of any of your Neopets. (If you made a change today, August 1, 2018, you won't be able to swap another species until August 1, 2019.)


Visit the Change Pet page to begin. (Also accessible from the right side of the Premium toolbar.) You'll be able to choose any of your Neopets, and then you'll choose which species to convert them to. The colour of your Neopet will remain the same. For example, your Christmas Grundo will change to a Christmas Blumaroo if you chose Grundo to Blumaroo.

If the colour of your current pet does not exist for the new species you'd like, you will be able to choose from the available colours for that species. No Grape Lutaris this time around. Currently, you cannot convert your Neopet into a Krawk or Draik. (But Ice Boris are a possibility—if your Neopet is Ice or if your Neopet is currently painted a colour that Boris cannot be painted!)

Additional Gallery Categories
As a Premium member, you may also now have up to 30 categories in your gallery (as opposed to the previous limit of 20). Unlike previously reported, this is not actually 30 new galleries, but rather just additional categories in your existing gallery.

This change does not effect upgrade costs.

Premium Sale
These new features are here to celebrate the annual Premium sale. Yearly memberships are discounted to be $49.95. See our previous post with details on how to get the discount, including step-by-step instructions for existing Premium members who wish to lock in the discount for their next billing date.

#NeoCreationWeek Next Monday
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on August 7, 2018, 3:43 pm NST


Starting next Monday, August 13th, at 10 AM NST, #NeoCreationWeek kicks off across Neopets' social media channels. It will serve as an opportunity to win Comic-Con Rare Item Codes if you weren't able to get there this year (which is most of us!)

Details about each contest are currently unknown, but it will presumably involve some creative skills:

Hey Neopians! We understand that not everyone was able to check us out at Comic Con this year so we will be giving our winners an exclusive Comic Con Code for in-game prizes.

Next Monday, a week-long contest, NeoCreation Week, will begin here on our social media!!

Each day at 10 AM PST we’ll announce the contest of the day, with entries closing at 11:59 PM PST.

Check back here next Monday morning for further details!

It sounds like in total, there will be at least 5 different opportunities to enter. (One for each day of the week.) You will have about 14 hours (from 10 AM NST - 11:59 PM NST) each day to prepare and submit an entry.

TNT Community Updates 9/8
  • Posted by Herdy
  • Posted on August 9, 2018, 5:27 am NST

TNT Staff Member Hardtotame briefly appeared on the Site Events Neoboard this morning to address a couple of issues and explain why she's not been posting quite as regularly:

I know it's been a while, and some of you are wondering when I'm going to do my next Q&A. The thing is, I've been a little overwhelmed by all the different topics that have come up, and the resulting commitments I've made. I just thought I should take a small break to work on a system that makes these sessions easier to record, and thereafter take action on. Please bear with me while I sort things out. I'll put the timings for my next sessions up when I'm ready to start again.
Meanwhile, I also joined a guild. The idea was to experience the guild system as a member, but clearly that created a lot of misunderstandings and bad feelings. Therefore, I have since exited the guild.
In other news, we have a new avatar going out very soon, so keep your eye on the news for more information.

I don't have much more updates in terms of the fixes/features you've been asking about. But I can tell you why - one of our programmers is working on figuring out how to get the Advent Animations working (correctly this time) on mobile devices. Why so early? Well, depending on what works, he needs to let the artists know how they should be delivering the animations.

Another one is working on getting our HTML 5 games to work correctly on the site. You see, making/converting the games is one thing, and getting them to fit into the existing system we have for mini-games is another thing. And that's just a small sample of the range of high-priority tasks our programmers are working on to get the site ready for mobile devices.

Sooo... sometimes, 'I'll get it done' means 'I'll sit here and repeatedly ask them about this issue until they decide to do it just to shut me up.' Before I move on to the next one on my list. Because I couldn't possibly ask them about all 20 at once. They would just stop paying any attention to me at all. Yeah...


She also then gave a small update about expected ETA to the first of the previously mentioned BD fixes/improvements:

September is your month! (The last time I checked.)

NeoCreation Week Day 1
  • Posted by Herdy
  • Posted on August 13, 2018, 10:12 am NST

The first day of the NeoCreation Week has now begun! All this week on Neopets social media accounts, they will be posting a new contest at 10am NST. If you enter before midnight that day, you could win Comic Con codes! The first challenge is to create an image for a new trophy.



NeoCreation Week has officially begun! The contest for today is to create your own Neopets Trophy! Show how it’ll look and how people could win it on the Neopets site. Make sure you post it to your social media with the hashtags #NeoCreationWeek #MyNeoTrophy and have fun! Submit before 11:59 PM PST to be considered as a participant. All winners will be announced tomorrow at 10:00 AM PST along with the next contest. So get creating!


This contest is open on the Neopets Facebook page, on the Neopets Twitter page, and on the Neopets Instagram page. You will need an account on one of the sites to enter, and remember to post with the required hashtags in order to qualify. Today's hashtags are #NeoCreationWeek and #MyNeoTrophy.

UPDATE: Due to a higher number of entries received than they may have been expecting, winners will now be announced at the end of the week! However, you still must enter each day's contest by 11:59 PM NST.

Contest update! So many fantastic submissions were received from day one of NeoCreation week, so now ALL winners will be announced Friday 10:00 AM PST. Keep the #NeoCreations coming! There may even be a special reward for those who participate in every contest throughout week!

  • Posted by Herdy
  • Posted on August 14, 2018, 10:06 am NST

Day 2 of NeoCreation Week has begun. Today, they are asking you to come up with a new Neopian Land! Again, you will have until midnight NST tonight to enter for a chance to win Comic Con codes. Today's hashtags are #NeoCreationWeek and #MyNeoLand.

Day 2 of NeoCreation Week is all about creating your own Land for Neopia! Show us how it’ll look, give it a name and what are 3 things that Neopians can do in this land? Are there games? Shops? A hole in the ground filled with pickles that users can accidently fall into? Make sure to use the hashtags #NeoCreationWeek & #MyNeoLand, and submit before tonight 11:59 PM PST!




For those who missed it, earlier they posted an update regarding when winners will be released:

Contest update! So many fantastic submissions were received from day one of NeoCreation week, so now ALL winners will be announced Friday 10:00 AM PST. Keep the #NeoCreations coming! There may even be a special reward for those who participate in every contest throughout week!
