Contribute to Jellyneo

Hello, and thank you for your interest in contributing to Jellyneo! All of the content and updates you find here on our site are brought to you by volunteers such as yourself. We are on the look out for helping hands in multiple areas, and below we have outlined projects that we feel are self-contained and can be achieved by just one person.

(Alternatively, if you want to help us out in a larger capacity, check our Join Jellyneo page for our current open volunteer opportunities!)

Below is a list of the projects that we currently have available. Each project typically entails working with a JN Staffer to make sure you end up producing something we can use.

As a note, if you do choose to help with a project below, you will receive full credit for the portion that you work on (and you will be credited with a name your choice—whether that is your Neopets username, real life nickname, or something else). In addition, you agree that by submitting something to Jellyneo means that we can keep it up and posted forever.

Now, without further ado... the projects:


Missing Game Guides

We already have a lengthy index of game guides, but we are still missing a few guides for some games. We are currently missing guides for the following games:

  • Brucey B Slots
  • Faerie's Folly
  • Guess the Card
  • Neopoker
  • Pakiko
  • Terror Mountain Tilt
  • The Last Blast
  • The Return of the Return of Dr. Sloth
  • Shenkuu River Rush
  • Skies Over Meridell
  • Web of Vernax

If you are an expert in one of the games above, we would love to add a game guide written by you.

To Get Started:

To ensure your game guide is being written to JN standards and is able to be published, please:

  1. Review the following game guides already published to get a sense for what a "Jellyneo game guide" looks like:
  2. Prepare an introductory paragraph for your game guide that introduces the premise and storyline of the game. No need to write any further just yet!
  3. Email your introduction to volunteer at jellyneo dot net, using a subject "Game Guide Intro for: *your game name*"
  4. We will review your introduction, mark you down on the guide list above, and give you the green light to move forward with writing the game guide.
  5. We'll continue to work with you along the way to edit it, polish it up, and prepare it to be published on Jellyneo.

Missing Articles

Like game guides, we also have a large index of articles on many many different Neopian topics. However, there are still a few areas where we lack an article. We are currently looking for articles on the following topics:

  • Card Collector Trophy mechanics/Neodeck collecting
  • Neoboard Avatar Collector Trophy mechanics
  • Tax Beast and Angry Tax Beast Trophy mechanics
  • Sloth's Invasion Tax Trophy mechanics
  • Tarla's Toolbar Giveaway
  • Better Than You competition

If you are knowledgeable about one of the topics above, we would love to add an article written by you.

To Get Started:

To ensure your article is being written to JN standards and is able to be published, please:

  1. Review the following articles already published to get a sense for what a "Jellyneo article" looks like:
  2. Prepare a basic outline for your topic. The outline should simply describe the planned sections of the article, with a 1-2 sentence description of what the section is about.
  3. Email your outline to volunteer at jellyneo dot net, using a subject "Proposed Outline for: *your topic name*"
  4. We will review your outline, provide feedback, and give you the green light to move forward with writing the article.
  5. We'll continue to work with you along the way to edit it, polish it up, and prepare it to be published on Jellyneo.

Old Feature Remakes

One of our favorite parts of the Book of Ages (our department dedicated to Neopets lore and history), are our old feature remakes. We've taken a few old features that have been removed from Neopets and remade them using modern web technologies. Our remakes so far include:

We'd like to add more recreations to our collection! Here's a short list of small features that we have deemed possible to recreate in a one-page format for historical purposes:

  • Kiko Match (the original, before games could earn Neopoints)
  • Chia Bingo
  • Crewdoku (from the Krawk Island Disappearance event)
  • Meristones
  • NeoKnights
  • Space Faerie Puzzle
  • Kau Korral
  • Treasure Hunt
  • Battlefield Neopia
  • Neo DJ
  • Techo Safari
  • We're also open to other features not listed here!

If you're interested in any of the features above, and you have web development skills, then we're looking for people like you to take on a project!

To Get Started:

  • Choose one of the features above and do a little research. Look for things like old game guides, articles, screenshots, or instructions.
  • Email the results of your research to volunteer at jellyneo dot net, along with a little bit of background about yourself and your web development skill levels. Use a subject like: "Feature Remake: *name of feature*"
  • We'll get back in touch with you to provide you with some additional information, requirements, and some starter code that you can begin building against.

Model Wearables

Our database of wearable previews relies on Neopians such as yourself dressing up your own Neopet and sending the name of your Neopet our way so we can grab the wearable information. With each new wearable released, we are always on the hunt for new models.

For instructions on how to model for Jellyneo, check out our Modeling section, and check out the full list of items we need models for.

(You will even get a shiny trophy for your jnAccount when you model for us!)

To Get Started:

Visit our Modeling section for more information. You do not need to contact us to help here.


Trading Post Tagging

In our Item Database, we log as many Trading Post lots as we can to produce a thorough Trading Post history for each item in Neopia. To make reading those histories easier, we also have a mechanism in place to pull the asking prices out of Neopians' wishlists and display them right next to the item in the lot.

For more details on how you can help us tag our data set, check out the Trading Post Tagging page in our Item Database.
