I was just wondering if we would find out what happened with Magons trial before the events happening in the Lost Desert take off?~~nyssaap
Not before the events in the Lost Desert take off, but before the story winds up.
Now that The Wraith Resurgence is over (or so Neopia thinks...), will Queen Fyora be returning to the Hidden Tower any time soon? I don't know how much longer the Gray Faerie can go without some quality, cloud-moping time.~~randompurplepigs
Now that Fyora is healed and healthy again, she will return to the Hidden Tower, yes. Soon? I guess it all depends on how you define soon, right? shifty eyes
Hello, I was wondering if you could clear up a disagreement my friend and I have about the pronunciation of Xendrick! She says the first sound in it should be [z] like the 'x' in 'xylophone', and i think since the Lost Desert is not-so-vaguely inspired by a real world location where languages are spoken that have the [x] sound like the "hard ch" in worlds like 'chutzpah', it should be that! Is there an intended pronunciation to prove one of us right (or both wrong?)~~neofreak628
Let me close the case for you...it's ‘ZEN-drik’....boom XD. Hope this helps the debate.
So i like that some old places gets some updates. I also noticed few things, first being Xendrik's Mansion and second that shopkeepers checks at first you before you are allowed to buy stuffs and if given wrong answer, they kick you out from their shops. Does all this means new plot is coming or new event? ~~neopieceluffy
Hmmmm...guess you'll have to follow along to find out...
Hi TNT! If we draw a series of comics, should they be submitted all at once? Or should it be weekly? I thought it would be all together but I have heard of users getting all their entries published in one issue because of that.~~pokemon_master_a74
You can do either method. But I honestly prefer one-two at a time. You will never see more than one of your comics in the same issue(unless a mindless mistake occurs.) Users are not permitted to have more than one submission per issue.
As a whole, neopia is awesome. I don't think the staff get enough credit. I can't imagine, after having gone through learning the amount they have, having to Jump in to the middle of something that has been around since I was a teen. The way things are created and supported now are entirely different to what must be archaic in comparison on some pages of Neopia. I'm not the most talented player but I enjoy the rest and relaxation the community brings. We can all agree a big thanks in is order for keeping our safe harbor of ever evolving fun going. Thanks, everyone who works on Neo related stuffs. *offers cookies* Thank you again and have a great day! ^_^~~ kougralover3833
That means so much! It is a big struggle we face on a day to day basis. This site has been around for such a long time and with that comes different teams of different styles and code and art and sometimes that can't be interrupted or changed without complications to follow. We are lucky to have an amazing staff who can combat these issues every single day but it's definitely a challenge to say the least.
Hi there! *gives ceremonial cookies* I and a few other users have had a little mixup with our issue 850 submissions in that they have been added to the current issue, #847, it seems like an honest mistake, but it's quite distressing to have spent a lot of time on something (I'm not the fastest writer on Neopets :P) and then have it go into the wrong issue. I was wondering if you would consider giving us the 850 avatar, or reconsider adding those articles to the 850 issue? Thanks for reading! :)~~fat_hungry_chicken
There has been a lot of questions about this so I will address it now. As much as I would love to put every single entry that is titled "for the 850 issue", I cannot accept every single one. Lately there have been sooo many submissions which is great, but when it comes to the other issues leading up to 850 content is still needed for these issues as well. Otherwise there would just be no Neopian Times until that issue or way less than usually expected. For this reason I can only select a certain number of entries for this special edition. So rather than rejecting perfectly good pieces I submit them for the weeks that still need content. I hope this clears things up, I wish I could make you all winners but this is why it's a special edition.
Two questions, will stocking stufftacular go on sale soon? Second, will the NC Mall be having a black friday sale?~~silly_mistake
Yes & Yesser! The Stockings should be on sale by the 30th of November and the Black Friday GBMC Sale is next Friday the 23rd! Keep your eyes peeled this sale only goes through that weekend.
I know this was already said last week but I too LOOOOOOOVE those Black Button Contacts!! aLtHoUgH... they don't seem to be tradable via Gift Boxes at the moment so I've got no way to trade for them and I NEED them for my pets, they're so amazing *.*~~bearbearpaw
Hmm how curious. I tested this based on your question. And I was able to successfully trade it using a Basic Gift Box and then sent it to Scrappy and she got it. So not sure what could be the issue here, but if you continue to have problems please send a ticket over to support.
Thank you for all the new spooky items we were able to obtain this year. Appreciate them. My Awakened pet, especially loves the hide n seek one. xD ~Username removed (it was eaten by meepit)
XD love the ending had to include!
Tombs Tales..I think you may have forgotten to activate this book announced 10/01...have a great day!~~twtkodiak
Oops you're totally right! I've gone ahead and activated that now! Thank you for the kind reminder and I hope you have a great day as well :)
I was looking at the item 'Lunch Tray' and thought one of the sides looked suspiciously like raspberries. Upon further inspection/magnification, I have deduced... That I still can't tell. Can you clear this up for me? My gallery may or may not be complete without it.~~giggzabit
This is a great question. So I went ahead and blew it up so I could analyze all the fine details, then I reffered to our handy Neo fruit guide we have here in office. Based on inspection and research I would deduce they are either Rasberries OR Bludberries. So I think it could be either one! What do you think?
Hello :-) Just wondering if the Games Master Challenge will happen this year?~~elly36
Yes, it is indeed taking place this year! AAA & Abigail are super excited and can barely contain their readiness to game! Start practicing at... well all the games you just never know which ones will be picked this year!
Greetings Neopians, let's just dive in! Today a new map of the Lost Desert has surfaced along with some very interesting new articles that reveal... well i'll just let you read and make your own deductions. In addition Neopets 19th Birthday is next week so of course we have some fun festivities planned so stay tuned. Neopia is a unique place to venture and make it a world of your own, and we just wanted to say thank you again for sticking by our side through thick and thin! You guys are an amazing community and without you there would be well...nothing! So have a great weekend everyone!
Item : Brown Goate The ultra fashionable disguise for your Neopet. I know it is listed as a toy.... but should it not be a wearable? especially with that description... hands out whole pumpkin pies to ALL the tnt staff...~~ gray_wolf_1976
Scarfs down personal pie...Anywho I looked into this item and yes i definitely agree it is quite a cool beard and one would assume it is a wearable. Sadly it looks like this item was made before customisation even existed. This dawns back to the old days before clothes...whatta time. So sadly it cannot be put on your pets, but we are looking to add some cool new facial hair very soon so stay on the lookout.
OMGOMGOMGOMG *B*CANNOT BREATHE*B* SOOOOOO thrillified with those Black Button Contacts from the Haunted Mansion!!!! :-D :-D :-D Just- EEEEEEEEEEEE!!! -no tags here-3 THANK YOU!~~sweetneopine
It was one of my favourites to make too! So glad we all have a dark and eccentric sense of style!
Hey there! I hope y'all have recuperated from all the Neopian Halloween festivities! It seems that Jhuidah is back to brewing up Cooking Pot recipes for curious Neopians. I'm happy to see that she is also divulging a few hints about long unsolved ingredients. I was wondering if she might whisper some clues about Flower Shaped Sand and Star Shaped Sand into your ears? Not that I'm biased or anything! glances surreptitiously at Sand Gallery Thank you!~~fullonparanoid
glances surreptitiously at Jhuidah and whispers Ummm... You should take a break from trying for those two recipes, because there is no way to get those two items as of now. We'll be sure to let you know if that changes.
Hi thar. Are you aware of the account pound_release? Can you either confirm or deny any plans on reactivating its purpose? Think of all those poor Neopets in limbo! :c ~gothmetalhead
Neopets are continuously released into the pound from this account, but the frequency has been rather low. Since our users were asking, we increased the frequency so that they are released more frequently now.
Hey TNT! So I spun Trudy's surprise the other day and got my weekly prize, a Beach Chair, but noticed that there's already an item called a Beach Chair. Just thought I should give you guys a heads up, so it's not confusing for Neopians searching for a Beach Chair!~~yoshisislandbandit
Oh dear! Nothing to worry about now, as Trudy's Surprise will only give out Comfy Beach Chairs henceforth.
Could we get some more emo hair for pets? Its halloween so its the perfect time I just want my pets to be fashionably 2008!~~zillyhoom
Love it! Reminds me of the good ole days. Sadly Halloween has already been planned but how about the holidays instead?
Hypothetically speaking: What would happen if a Neopet drank only half a transmogrification potion instead of the whole thing?! Would they transform halfway into some weird hybrid creature? Is that why Lord Darigan looked weird before he even became cursed? Is that how the Tax Beast became...whatever he is? (Shakes submission box) I NEED ANSWERS
Hypothetically...I'd say they would be half transmorgrified?? Maybe something similar to the split paint brush half of two different pets **gasp** now that would be a sight! And quite interesting..hmmm
Thank you for the Cooking Pot hints! Now, would it also be possible for you to fix the recipe for Savoury Cubes which currently ends up making Crunchy Buzz Honey Delight instead? Thanks!~~minnesotan
Consider it done!
If you like a good mystery, then here's some food for thought: What are those tiny black particles inside a Co-Melon? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hello! I remember reading somewhere that the Faerie Quest Fortune Cookies (from NC Mall) wouldn't be giving out Kaia quests because they require you to spend NC. I've now gotten two Kaia Quests. Is this intentional or is this a glitch?~~ _clows_cool_pets
This is incorrect. It is clearly stated in the FAQs that you can get a Kaia quest from a Faerie Quest Fortune Cookie. If you want to make sure not to get one, you can remove all your NC items from your inventory while your fortune cookie is active.
