With the Lyra event coming to an end, it feels like there are a lot of unanswered questions. Like, where did Lyra end up? What happened to Aymas and the Qasalan soldiers, will they be punished? Is Aharoon under arrest now? Did the Sakhmet people who disliked Qasalans like them now? Where is the Sakhmet treasury and why couldn't Amira open it? Why was Dacon running away with Blaze? Why did no one notice it on display in the Xendrik Mansion all this time? How did the Ruki know where it was? Who was the Ruki, really? Why did Dacon need to find it? Why did the palace magician have to send a message to Vyssa, when she's Amira's sister and should have been in the palace? And more. Are these questions going to be answered?~~herdygerdy
Well yes, some of these were answered in the final newspaper update. Some, like where Lyra ended up, is answered in Legends and Letters. The location of the Sakhmet treasury is known only to the rulers and their closest aides, and Amira did not want to allow the leader of the coup access to it. Dacon was returning to the palace with the Blaze, having received it from the Ruki, the palace magician. The weapon had been missing from his family for generations, and the later ones weren’t sure what it looked like. It wasn’t easy to conclude that it was the same as another well-known weapon. The Ruki has a mysterious way of knowing things others don’t. Dacon really needed some extra help in his situation, and the Blaze certainly counted as just that. Vyssa was traveling - with her sister ruling the land, she is free to explore the world outside her city, and she often does so.
The final item for the Collectible Charms album page was created in 2013 for the Festival of Neggs event but never released. Could it be released for this year's event, as we're now far into the Charms II page even though Charms I can't be completed. The item was called Festival Negg Collectable Charm.~~shadiochaos
It will be released in this year’s Festival of Neggs. :)
Hey TNT! (Hands out delicious ice cream with chocolate frosting). I was wondering what happend to Lyria after the lost heirloom. I just checked your new app Legends and Letters and i see her on a picture with her enemy. What happen to her? Did she escape or something? And will we know what happens to her or not? Like a Epilogue?~~math1271
She does escape her father. What happens after that...well... you will have to play Legends and Letters to find out.
I'm working on an article for the neopian times and I had a question. I know we can include images in our articles but is there a limit? Without giving away my idea, my article would have an image for every species of neopet. Is this too much? The images would be imperative to the article.~~_clows_cool_pets
Of course not, the more images the better. Just be sure to add your own image coding language to make the editing process a lot smoother.
Hey! It is Gelert Day today, March 6th. The results of the Paint Brush poll were released this morning. Oil Paint won, but Mosaic came in 2nd. The last PB poll we had, TNT released BOTH 1st and 2nd place colors on the next Pet Day. Please do so again! I want to paint Mermutt Mosaic! Thank you for considering...Cheers!~~fullonparanoid
We will certainly be releasing Mosaic as a colour. We’re just working out a few details on our end before we do so.
First off, I love to see you guys working on amazing new colours. However, I wish that we could vote for our favorite TWO of the options. I know as a customizer who chats with other customizers, that in the first PB Poll, Burlap was everyone's second favorite, but because everyone votes for their first fave, Burlap came in absolute last. If we could have voted for our top two favorites, the outcome would have been different. So, if you could pretty please with rainbow sprinkles on top mention this around for next time, customizers would be very thankful.~~ziviacreed
This is a good point. I’ve talked to the team and they agree that we should have a more sophisticated polling system the next time around.
Welcome back to the editorial! Just a quick reminder that if you want a specific image to be used as the main image for your story be sure to add it into the comments to the editor. The function that we have to input a specific url does not reach us unfortunately so please include it in your additional comment section so I am sure to see it. Additionally when adding code for your story be sure to use carrots <>rather than brackets , it will save a lot of time for editing! Thank you to all you who constantly submit articles, stories and comics! This continues to be one of the biggest spotlights on the site!
The Snow Swabby has been activated, but now it's showing up for 60 dubloons at Little Nippers. Donny, help! Keep that painted petpet out of there!~~drzoidberg
Don’t worry, Donny swept that Swabby right out of there!
By coolness284 Tomos: Just to let you know, before you chargeat me -- I'm armed with a baby paint brush.
I saw that you guys were thinking about new pet colours. I've always liked the idea of an outer space themed paint brush. Just a thought.~~bigmac12345845
I’m afraid you’re a little too late. The new pet colours have been decided and the models are well underway... You can expect to see the new paintbrush poll out soon(TM)!
Could you guys please fix the newly released petpet "Royal Scarabug". When I try to search for it on the shop wizard it acts like the item doesn't exist.~~get_recognized
Fixed. Thanks, Donny!
Hi TNT! Can you make a wearable pink lipstick and burgundy lipstick, please I need it for my pets so bad!~~greyfever
This is certainly possible! As always, though, you’ll have to be patient - it may take a month or three to actually release these items.
I did the math, and the daily bank interest seems to be off. When dividing the yearly interest by 356 (or even 357) the daily value was lower by more then a few neopoints (even though the interest says it's rounded up...). I even checked if the yearly interest was right, and it was. Is this a mistake? Thanks for looking into it, and for the great work with the site!~~undertown13
Hey undertown13, a year is 365 days, even in Neopia! ;)
Will the storytelling competition ever get updated? It's been over a month since the introduction has been published.~~xiaolin10413
Unfortunately that is no exaggeration! We will be back on schedule next week.
Lately the Editorial has been filled with requests for fixes, but this takes away from all the other questions that could have been answered instead. It's been a year since I've been collecting requests for zone changes on my petpage /~Ereza. Maybe Donny can pick one or two items from there every week instead? The players that requested those items to be listed have been waiting patiently for a staff member to take a look, so it would be really appreciated!~~degenius
Ah, glad you brought that up. About those fixes, Donny has been working on a special project that will help him power through zone changes. Something about the current process being way too cumbersome and even making some of the older items unfixable without their source files… Well, we’re just hoping he can do some mass fixes once his 'zone changer' is finally ready!
Hello TNT, I was wondering if the Gamemaster AAA avatar is going to be awarded every year at the Daily Dare from now on, or was it just an one time thing last year? I was wondering as I have done every DD since I joined but couldn't do last years' for several reasons and would love for that avatar to be awarded every year. Thanks~~witfer
Fret not, the Gamesmaster AAA avatar is making a comeback as an annual avatar.
Hi Scrappalicious (and all the rest!) You guys have such amazing, incredible, extraordinary shopkeepers all over the site!!! Like the Ruki in the Second-Hand Shoppe, the mustached kacheek of the General Store and the super snazzy Kyrii of The Music Shop...just to name some ultra awesome ones that come to mind!!! Could you ask the artwork team and the guardian of the plushies to please, please, please consider turning some of these ultra cool shopkeeps into plushies for us plushie lovers, plushie enthusiasts, and plushie collectors!?!? THANKS!!! Loves to the entire TNT Team! 'Specially Donny! ;-)~~sweetneopine
Oooh, why not?!!
Hey there Hi there! Welcome to the Sidekicks & Partners collab edition! Celebrating all the amazing duos in Neopia who have shown excellent or on the rocks friendships. Be it ice caves or deserts, jungles or arcades? These duos fill our history with some pretty amazing stuff. A special thank you to parody_ham for to continuing the tradition to make these amazing collab editions happen, you are very appreciated in this Neopian Times community.
Be sure to visit Lyra and Lost Heirloom plot as it is coming to a close very soon.So be sure to finish your achievements if you were hoping to do so. And with that, let's jump into this editorial which was brought to you by hardtotame.
Hi, the item Raiders Gloves doesn't show up on my Kacheek when worn. It looks like the same problem that happened with Paradise Glasses a while ago, can you please take a look into it? (Poor Kacheeks have been forgotten twice now) :(~~degenius
Your Kacheek should now be able to wear Raiders Gloves. The Paradise Glasses will take a little longer to fix, but we’re onto it.
I want to start off by saying really great work with all of the nice new outfits that the artist have been putting out! I love them! I just have a couple of mane issues with a few items, namely the Dripping with Gold Jewelry and Jungle Girl Outfit, which both look amazing on a lot of pets, but my Xweetok's mane keeps getting in the way of seeing the full item. Would it be possible to add a ruff restriction to the two items? They're really lovely, but I don't think they're living up to their full potential. Thanks~~thegoddesofxweetok1
That ruff should no longer be a problem when your Xweetok wants to dress up!
Hi guys, do you think I could ask Donny to look into the Drumset Foreground please? It won't appear on my poor little rocker Kau and it's breaking her heart D: Thank you!~~dark_lady_gray
Is it a baby Kau? This foreground isn’t available for babies, because the little darlings won’t even be visible behind those giant drums!
Hello - Could you please forward this message to Donny for me? The Lit Candles on a Stream Foreground is currently zoned as a Background Item. Please rezone it appropriately!~~iareowl
Consider it done! (No really, it’s done.)
hey guys, the spring petpet paint brush is so cute and would have a lot of potential as a Neopet color (as long as it's different than Woodland). think about it !!~~kitty02695
You’re in luck – the artists are just exploring ideas for new paintbrush colours, and we’ve asked them to add this to their list of ideas. Let’s see what comes of it.
Hey, Scrappy. I was so excited when you announced that the prizes for Grumpy King Skarl had finally been released. But now I'm disappointed that NONE have been seen (AGAIN!). I've feeling déjà vu. TNT has said several times before the items were working but to no avail. Collectors have beem waiting for almost 7 years (items "released" in July 2012). Is this just a running joke in your office? or is there something seriously wrong with these items? Perhaps you could release the items in a different mannner...the wishing well?~~malphd
The Skarl Collectable Charm is now available the same way King Skarls Robe and King Skarl Erisim are available. If you can get those, it’s only a matter of time before you get this one.
Is it possible you could add some NP Valentine (( and anti-Valentine )) items? I was very disappointed when I saw the news and saw only the Valentine petpet. :( And PERHAPS some affordable Sparkling Juices?~~puffkins2000
We actually DO have a pretty cool NP Valentine wearable (have you seen the news today?) and an Anti-Valentine’s Day item as well. Pretty convenient, eh?
Hi! Could you please do me a tiny little favor? Could you change the capitalization for Bottle Of Orange Sand to Bottle of Orange Sand (with lowercase "of") so it matches the other sands? That would be amazing! You guys rock so much! I appreciate all your hard work!~~princesspurplebear
Welcome to the Valentine Edition of the Neopian Times! Don't forget next week is the Sidekicks and Partners special edition so submit your best the more unique the better! Also please please don't forget your collaborators in your comments to the editor, no collabors left behind! This editorial is brought to you in collaboration with hardtotame!
After nearly a year of delay, the survey results are finally in! We apologise for the lag on our part, our attention has been dragged into a million and one directions in this past year. We want to improve the site in so many ways. And there are so many things to do here in Neopia as you all know and different users have different tastes and interests so we attempt to reach in all directions for change but sometimes we bite off a little too much. So finally we are ready to tackle the fixes that are Battledome. So with that let's get into a brief summary of the results. We had about 10,000 or so users participate last January! We were overwhelmed with great feedback and results that will help us move into the stages of fixes we hope to begin very soon. Scrappy is away at our other HQ for the week, so the second she gets back we hope to dive in head first. So let's just jump into it.
-68% of you have been playing for 11-19 years! Which is insanely awesome!
-50% of you play 21 plus times a week.
-A lot of you want us to focus on fixing the foresight glitch which we also really want to find a solution to.
-In terms of stances 17% of you thought they were super important while 30% were neutral.
-Featured Challengers received 19% neutral yet 26% found it super important.
-Regarding stealing and reflecting 22% thought it was important while 27.6% were neutral and 11% said no altogether.
-Most answers involving high score table & battling difficult opponents were neutral.
-A big percentage voted toward implementing some sort of hit point system as a fourth option in battling.
-73% of you REALLY want to bring back Defenders of Neopia!
We hear you loud and clear battledomers! We are working with our lead programmer and QA team to hopefully get to the root of each and every issue to bring you all a better dome experience. Just note each fix is an individual issue. No issue can be fixed with one amazing magical blanket…as much as we wish it could. I'd pay millions for that blanket! But anyways just know we will do our best to find a way to the core of the Battledome code to find the best solutions feasible. Thank you for your year long waits of patience and we hope to report some changes soon.
