Hi. Last week, someone pointed out that some wearables were restocking in the wrong shops. Following up on that, wouldn't it make more sense for Roo Bottle Opener to restock at Roo Island Souvenirs? It currently stocks at the Toy Shop, but a bottle opener is not a toy.~~_brainchild_
You got it dude! Roo Bottle Opener is now at the Roo Merchandising Station!
Hello and Happy Holidays, Firstly, thank you for the quality in this year's Stocking Stuff. Aside from the candy beard everything has been really well thought out. Love the Sugar Icing Holiday Cookies Garland dws as well. Question:L I just wanted to ask if A Haunting Path Background could be rezoned as a background? It's a lovely background but we can't use it with twinkling windows, or gates, as is and it's a little difficult to work with. Thank you for the consideration!~~timesamyth
Ahhh makes my cold dead heart truly warm knowing you liked all the SS stuff!!! <3 And Dyeworks gosh stop, it's going to my head. Okay being humble being humble. Yes I put in a request to fix it! This is one of my favourite items I got to design from Halloween as well. Voila! Done & Done! ;)
Hello! I was wondering whether the Mysterious Present item will ever get activated again? I have one sitting in my storage shed and I'm unable to do anything with it at the moment because it has been deactivated for a while now. That's a bit too mysterious for me :p thank you!~~halo_hopie
Oh man the ghost glitch is back at it again (facepalm) I really think there are some Meepits out there are meticulously unplugging wires somewhere in an obscure basement at hq that even we don't know about!!! Anywhozzles I gotchu! This item is officially fixed thanks to our dear pal Donny!
HEY GUYS! you awesomely epic! ok so how long does it take to eat a whole bunch of asparagus???~~Coldblanket
Oh wow, what a complex question. Well I think you have to take in account cooking time because that's truly what takes the longest right? So for me personally I LOVE asparagus it's one of my favourite veggies next to Zucchini. So first cover your pan in olive oil then you can pan fry some garlic to season the pan then remove or leave in the garlic depending on your preference. Add in your asparagus I'd say like 7 stocks that are pre chopped...no one likes the ends anyways. Then add salt, pepper, more garlic powder, some of this some of that and bam. Fry your asparagus to desired texture I personally like them soft so I charr them up a bit. Then serve it up! I'd say it takes me 7 mins to eat all my asparagus without sides! Does that answer your question?
Can the Snowager wake up from Hibernation? Thanks!~~silly_mistake
Oh yeah totally let me just go over right now and try....okay he's not really waking up like I've tried tapping him a few times, flailed some food in front of his nose, I even splashed a little water on him. Sorry I don't what to tell you XD
Hi Neopets! :) Could you possibly make a pair of brown-eyed contacts? I LOVE brown eyes and there are no brown contacts for pets. (A super happy bonus if there could be a pair of black-iris contacts, too!!!)~~a_life_of_love
What?! We don't have brown contacts? I'm amazed! Surely as a fellow brown eyed girl I'd love to! And the black one wow so creepy yet I'm into it!
Was wondering if the NP item 'Maraqua Background' was actually active? Was released in 2007 but can't seem to find any actual trade/pricing history. I'd love to put it on my mara Hissi!~~hisstante
Hmmm I looked this item up myself, and yes, it is indeed still active. It is in the Mystical Surroundings shop so I suppose you just have to keep going on your quest to find this prized rare item!
gives a basket of chocolate chip cookies I was wondering, is neopets going to be completely mobile (no desktop website) with the release of the app/mobile site in the summer, or will the desktop site still exist? I'm asking for clarification cuz i remember seeing an article that said neo was going completely mobile with the release of the app, and i just don't know if that's true or not.
Man all these cookies are a lot you guys..I mean I'll never say no but maybe you can start sending some asparagus or like energy potions you know something I can put to good use! But sorry back to the question. Here's a quote from Scrappy "NO way Chomby! Okay that rhymed more in my head...But no. That was one crazy rumor going around...while we are going to mobile, the site won't be going anywhere! The app will just be a way for users to play wherever they are :)"
*passes fresh, frothy lattes and cookies to staff* Thank you for a wonderful Starlight Celebration. It was great!!! I know everyone is aye busy with conversions, the Plot and the upcoming mobile app, but the Crossword is very missed. So if someone has a moment?? Thank you for all you do.~~cloonshannagh
Yummy thanks for the coffee and tea, anything to stay warm is a great reason to eat yummy treats. So glad you enjoyed it! Why I do have a moment. I have stocked up all the January crosswords for you. I will have someone on that stat. Thanks for the heads up.
Will we ever get closure on Magon's portal experiment in Brightvale? The event ended, and I haven't heard it since.~~timothy1692
Why of course...when have we ever left you hanging on a story...actually don't answer that. But in all seriousness yes, let's just say Magon had A LOT of loose ends to tie up around town before he could go blabbing about what really happened. We keep trying to contact him for final word but he has so many Do not Disturb signs plastered all over his door and no one has heard from him in several months. So we shall just have to wait to see what is really happening...
Hi everyone! I really hope you all enjoyed the Winter Starlight Celebration. It's personally one of my favourite times of the year. Now we are in the month of Sleeping. I'm truly envious of whoever named this month, because so far there has been a lack there of... Anyways enough of my personal ramblings. Just a quick announcement today..This just in...we are receiving an urgent breaking news story...The Neopies are coming back! This year we are reviving this age old tradition to reminisce and recognize the best events, wearables, site themes and more from last year! That's right you heard it here first folks from your friendly neighborhood editorial! So put on your fancy pants , gowns and and cufflinks; this will be an elegant event to jive up your new year, you won't wanna miss! Keep your eyes on the prize (aka the New Features page) for future updates!
Donny's Corner: This week we fixed a few issues with some unreadable books through Advent, fixed Cave Painting Background, Mutant Staff of Darkness, Mutant Staff of Foulness, and Dark Mutant Lantern along with Fang-tastic BG. We are polishing some behind the scenes secret projects for January so that's where most of Donny's time has been going. He appreciates all the support he's been getting lately, it helps when he finishes each day. Donny and I would both like to wish a Merry Month of Celebrating and we will see you in the new year!
To the tune of Rudolph the RedNose Reindeer. Harry the mutant moehog Had a very shiny Mohawk And if you ever saw it You would even say, “That’s dope dawg.” All of the pretty faeries. Used to laugh and call him names They never let poor Harry Join in the neopian games. The faeries lost their hair brush one Christmas eve And Fyora came to say Harry with your Mohawk so tight Won’t you style our hair tonight? Then how the faeries loved him As they shouted out with glee Harry the Mutant Moehog The best hairdresser in history!~~lindyaol
Hey there TNT, In the last editorial, you said only drawings could be submitted to the beauty contest. No sculptures and things.... Would this also rule out an oil painting? It’s still kind of drawing but. I guess you could say I’m not sure where the line is “drawn”. Heheh~ Anyway, thank you for your time and have a wonderful night~~serikyl
Why thank you I hope you have a happy holiday :). Painting would be fine since that's technically a drawn medium since they would draw the image and then paint. They would then take a picture (or scan it) and send it in (much the same way as anyone who would draw with pencil and paper and take a picture of scan it and send it in).
Howdy! Last editorial, you guys posted the Beauty Contest rules, and they said that "no non-drawn works, meaning they cannot use sculptures, plushies or other hand-made or manufactured items in their artwork.". As a 3D artist myself, are renders included in this rule? As in, if I sculpt my pet on, let's say, ZBrush, and render a picture, can I send this render to the contest?~~i_am__i
Sorry 3D renders would not be allowed in the Beauty Contest but would be fine for the Art Gallery.
Hi! I love customising my Neopets but I have noticed one thing about the latest items - the wigs aren’t voluminous! Please can you make future wigs more voluminous and bouncy - they’ll be so much more profitable! Thank you kindly~~happyinengland
Oh so you want VOLUME!? OH I will give you volume! I will make some awesome flowy voluminous wigs just for you ;) Get ready though, this volume might blow you away!
To Donny's Corner: Cave Painting Background needs to restock in the Mystical Surroundings, not the Ugga Shinies. Mutant Staff of Darkness, Mutant Staff of Foulness, and Dark Mutant Lantern need to restock in either the Neopian Gift Shop or the Unis Clothing Shop not in Ugga Shinies.~~silly_mistake
Oh wow how fitting is your username this definitely a silly mistake. These have all been fixed now. We have this thing in HQ we call the 'ghost glitch' and that's when certain items in our database suddenly change categories, erase the description or make the item inactive. It's really strange and we really don't know why it happens. It's a true Neopian Mystery.
Hey there! I'm really sorry to bother, but I bought a Fang-tastic Background in hopes to use it for my UC Grey Gelert - unfortunately, it seems there is a glitch where the BG makes UC pets disappear. =( Could you please send Donny to take a look into it?
Alrighty...wow what a glitch. After much review with the head programmer and Donny of course I have fixed this!!! I take much pride in these fixes especially when they take a lot of time XD. Anywho customise away my friend.
GUYS GUYS GUYS, can I just say how AMAZING the Stocking Stufftacular and Advent Calendar items have been this year?! Omg!! I'm really blown away by the quality of the artwork. Thank you so much for these lovely items!! And happy holidays to you all *leaves out cookies and milk*~~unbridledlove
Wow thank you so much. These are two of the biggest events of the year and they take A LOT of TNT members to make it happen, so we really appreciate that. It means a lot :) I personally plan Stocking Prizes so thanks again so glad you enjoy them.
How come Card Magic 101 given out by the advent calendar can't be read, it is a book!~~shadomir
There were a few books that were unreadable but those have now been fixed. So sorry to disturb your reading.
Happy holidays to all. I was happy to see the link in new features for Learn to Speak Neopian. I checked it out immediately. There were some missing pet names. Please add Gnorbu Vandagyre and Xweetok. I have not had the time to check other entries as yet. Thanks~~blindedby2
I will try to prioritize this.
Hi there! Have you guys considered updating the NP reward that we get when we're on top of the high score tables? Those 750 or 500 NP seem kinda outdated in today's economy. Thanks!~~jett_antonio
Hmmm interesting verrry interesting..haha jk I will be sure to slide this to content for sure and we will see what they think.
Hello neopetsteam, I can't play any of the games neither can I visit some of the sites. If I go off site i.e. The daily neopet. I can get the freebies but still can't play games. Do I need a special program I have Flash. Any help will be appreciated. I have been playing neopets for 10 years ... on and off so please help.~~snowfire5050
My recommendation is to first make sure your flash is up to date. Second a lot of browsers are out to get us flash sites (cough cough) so essentially now per page you have to specifically say that you want to allow flash. On Chrome to the left of the site address there is a small little i and if you click it just click to allow flash. In other browsers just be sure to go into your settings and allow flash.
Hi! A while ago I noticed that Basic Pink Trousers aren't in the NC Mall, but the other basic pink items are. The rest of the basic sets (blue, green, etc.) are all there, too. Is there any reason why those trousers specifically are missing, or is it just an error? If it's an error, could they please be added to the mall? Thank you!
Oh I see what you mean. I mean I personally love pink too! Just a little of this and a little of that and bam, back in the mall just for you :)
Welcome to the Holiday issue of the Neopian Times! We've got a bunch of winter themed submissions this week so sit back and relax and enjoy. Today we also have a few exciting announcements! So let's just jump into it shall we? We shall.
By now many of you have heard about our upcoming mobile app, Legends & Letters. We've announced that it’s coming soon, but it's coming sooner than you think! The 17th of the month of Sleeping, we will release this beast your way. It's an awesome combo of all the characters and history that are the life and soul of Neopets along with a brand new battle to take on with a compelling word mechanic. We are so excited about this app and we hope you are too! All of you truly make Neopets what it is and we could never do this without you, which is why we want your help! This app is for you, so it's only right that your feedback should influence how the game is shaped and formed. So please let us know through Social, boards, direct message, telegram, whatever you have to do to send us your thoughts and suggestions!!
Along with Legends & Letters, we are also expecting the Neopets mobile app to come Summer of 2019! All the things you love to do on the site will be with you wherever you go! Wanna try on that new outfit you just got from that superpack? Maybe go see what you can get at the Money Tree? Or even participate in the latest site event while chatting with all your neofriends about it on the Neoboards! All of this and so much more will be available for you on the go! This is a big upcoming chapter and we can't wait for you to see what we’ve been working so hard to impress you with. Stay tuned on the site for all these updates. We are going into next year full throttle and we want your help and feedback every step along the way!!
You all have been the most amazing and loyal community over these past 19 years which we can't thank you enough for!! Neopia is a magical place full of so many opportunities and we are just getting started...
Hi TNT! Since the Beauty Contest FAQ seems to have disappeared when the old ticket system did, could you list the rules for it once again? They're now scattered throughout old editorials and even though there's a few petpages linking to said editorials, I think it might be helpful to have them in one place. ~~_help_de_jaguar_
• No flags or national symbols (Neopets worlds and Altador Cup flags are an exception to this!)
• Entries may only be used for one pet. This means that although the member can enter the same image as many times as they like for their pet, (unless they won gold with that image)they can never enter it for another pet (even if they trade the pet off the account).
• No religious symbols
• No copyright or trademark symbols (their username is fine but they cannot put anything else)
o This includes not being able to use images from copyrighted characters or items, that are not owned by Neopets, i.e. Neocola is fine however a name of a soda brand is not fine. Characters cannot be drawn to appear to be cosplaying any character those copyright is not held by Neopets, for example for Pokemon characters.)
• No real life weapons! If it's a Neopets weapon this is fine however real life weapons cannot be used in any images. This also includes any graphic imagery which could include, blood or death scenes.
• No personally identifiable information (including URLs and real names)
• Images only, meaning no photographs used as backgrounds (however they can draw the image and take a picture of the images and submit that). Also, no non-drawn works, meaning they cannot use sculptures, plushies or other hand-made or manufactured items in their artwork.
• All art must be created by the member, with the except of site images.
o Beauty Contest entries can be staff drawn art, that the user has attempted the alter. All alterations must look like they took at least five minutes of the members time to be accepted into the contest.
• Anthropomorphic Images
o These are fine but there are rules that need to be followed for accepting these images.
The image must first and foremost be drawn as a Neopet. After that it is fine to have human characteristics added, the image cannot be a human drawn with Neopet features drawn on. These are very obvious when they are submitted and usually will look like Neopets characteristics were added as an after thought.
• Stolen Images cannot be accepted! The person entering has to create their own image or alter an official Neopets image.
• No nudity may be present in any images.
• Can only advertise on the account the pet is also on
o In addition Neosigs are only allowed on the Art Boards/Spotlight Boards and Premium Boards that contain a link to their BC entry and boards about BC entries can only be on the Art Board. If posted off these boards, it will be considered spamming and the entry can be removed.
• Can only vote once per species per contest from your main playing account.
• No URLs in the image or speech and the speech for the entry does have to abide by all site/chat rules.
Donny's Corner: Donny is back! But with only one item to report. He says he does a lot of behind the scenes types of fixes that would probably bore you so hence why most his fixes aren't "reportable" as he puts it. But he did mention that he fixed the highly requested Exquisite Aged Bookshelf. We will check back with Donny next week.
