Donny's Corner: Donny and his crew are finally showing up to work again so it appears they've been getting some stuff done. The work report shows that 30 items with issues in naming/categorization/activation/description/icons have now been fixed.
Hi TNT! I'm soo happy to see these new perks for premium, especially changing pets to new colors or species. However, I've seen some users exploit the system, as if you change your pet to a species that doesn't have the same color, you can pick any colour! Is this against the rules?~~dilanche
This is not against the rules. We understood that some user saved up a lot of points in order to paint their pets with valuable colours, and during the switch if the pet isn't in the colour you want you can change it to a list of different colour options we are okay with.
If the new species changer was used on UCs, would the pet stay UC or would it be converted?~~brynchilla
Unfortunately you cannot species change UCs.
Hi TNT! So the new premium features are great! But with the pet change I was wondering why it seems you are able to create an Ice Bori? Those had been given out only as a promotion for downloading the Neopets toolbar waaaaay back when. I had one from that long ago and thought it was they would never be released again. Are they now released for everyone or is this a glitch that needs to be fixed? Thanks so much!~~greenj12356
We have no problem with users creating Ice Boris!
Recently, you guys have added a bunch of avatars that are very limited to many people (Stamp avatars are expensive, and event avatars are easy to get but people coming back will miss out on them). Can you add more general avatars, like for games, pets, etc? Easier things that are accessible to most people with some effort. Things like Stamp avatars or the collectable card avatar you guys mentioned are cool and reward those who have built up their collection, but widely inaccessible to 99% of the neo population (especially any collectable card avatar, as you need 365 cards which is hundreds of millions of neopoints). Isn't it time we got some avatars that anyone can get (with some effort?) Thanks!~~berzerkturtlez
Several more avatars are on their way, and they’re accessible to all (with some effort). Keep a look out in the new features section for updates.
Hello TNT! Thank you for bringing so much content to the site. I've been a loyal Neopian for so long; it's good to see activity again. The recent event happening in Meridell, find the Dragoyle, is a great addition, but seems like it may be broken? I missed yesterday, because I couldn't find the Dragoyle in time. Today doesn't look promising either as I've been refreshing all over Meridell for hours and my color remains elusive. This is disheartening, because now I've missed a day, but what's worst is I've already spent the NC and now I've missed out on the dress. Is there something wrong with my code or am I really just that unlucky? Please help. I truly love participating. Thanks! ~~ilovejonulrich
Once they find a spot they like, Dragoyles tend to stick around, so you should have more luck if you expand your search rather than checking again in areas you’ve already looked.
Back at it again for another week! This week has been so much fun rediscovering Meridell all over again and the Premium Sale finally live! Just to let you all know we have updated the caption contest rules help page here: Take a look! The biggest note here is that you cannot campaign for votes for captions it makes it unfair plain and simple. We have also decided as a team that you cannot have Premium on your side accounts. We apologise if there was any confusion or that we may have misspoke previously. And with that let's dive into it.
It appears that no one has been showing up for work lately. Not really sure what the deal is. As soon as something is fixed you'll be the first to know.
Gives you a plate of space rock cookies! Please make a album for the Lost in Space items to go and how to remove them. In the nc collectible album it only goes as high as Curses and The Cursed! Great job you guys are doing to improve the site! Keep up the Good work. Thank you~~hillsongvfusion
Ohhh space cookies, that's a new one! Thanks! Scrappy has volunteered her lovely services so she has promised me she will get this done...Guess I'll just wait here with my space cookies till it's done...Okay she doesn't seem to like the staring thing so I'm just gonna pretend like I'm looking past her...Still not working okay well she said she'll get it done, so thanks for the cookies and compliments you're too sweet!
Hiya TNT; Long time entrant of the Art Gallery here. This isn't the first time it has happened, but my latest AG triumph netted me rare and magnificent...codestone. x_x It's very disappointing when this happens, especially nowadays when I spend over ten hours on one piece. Are there any plans to update the prize pools for the art gallery and other creative contests on the site to make us creators feel a bit more appreciated, and more motivated to submit our best work? Thanks~~linkoftime
Hey linkoftime, wicked username! Do people still say wicked? Well I do! Anywhozzles, GOOD NEWS EVERYONE! We will be updating the Creative Contests Prize Pool verrrry sooon! We are drafting plans and sketching things out and using the item generator to give you guys some artful prizes, so please hold onto your quills and brushes, it will be here before you know it!
Aaaah! Help! There's still a wraith hanging around on the Anchor Management page! My pet is too scared to go near it, might Fyora possibly send some of her finest soldiers to deal with the lingering threat?~~ohsounicornly
Jeez I guess that poor guy never got the hint the war was over...I'm sorry it scared your pets, to be honest that's why we've waited this long too. He's scary and I'm pretty sure he bites...We are assembling a skilled techincal squad to remove the Wraith. In the meantime be cautious do NOT attempt to feed it your leftovers, we have no idea what he will do to you...you have been warned!
Is the Arch of Roses coming back to the NC Mall?~~ kittycat5540
IT ISSS! Get rosey my friend!
Hi Scrappy! I was using the shop wizard to try and find the cheapest Bitten Green Apple and found one that was significantly cheaper than the rest. Upon clicking on it, it turned out that the owner of the account was frozen and that the item could not be bought. Would it be possible to have the owners of frozen shops not appear in the shop wizard? Thanks a bunch!~~machao14
Hi there, remember an apple a day keeps the doc away! Anyways, we have seen this question quite a bit. The problem lies in that just because users are frozen does not mean we remove everything they ever did on the site, in the chance that the user gets their account back, it would be kind of unfair. So we see your point, so we can look into it for sure, but for now this is the delema we are in the middle of.
Hiya how's it going!? Welcome back to the Neopian Times, I know it's been a few weeks but we are back in action this Friday! From all of us here at TNT HQ we want to say thank you to those who came to meet n greet us at Comic Con. It was truly amazing to meet some of you who have been Neopian residents for 10-15 years +. You guys are awesome, interesting, creative and hilarious beings and I hope to see you all again one day! We want to do more meet ups in the future so keep an ear to the ground. Speaking of Comic Con, not to worry everyone, soon very soon we will be holding some social contests for a chance to win some of the prizes we were giving away this past weekend. So keep an eye on our socials for more details to come.

The Healing Springs has been officially fixed! We aren't saying Marina was conspiring against us and withholding goods but...let's just say negotiations had to made to get her back into her fun loving attitude. I don't know something about being on the homepage too long.

Here are some fixes from this week:
Fixed Site Event trophies on user lookups so that they are displayed in chronological order
Fixed issues related to naming, description, rarity and categorization on 19 items
And some Ghoul Catchers bug fixes
Just wanted to say that I think the new Glowing Body Paint and Trophy Body Paint NC items are really cool and a great idea! It would be cool to see more items like this in the future. Thanks. keleri
Awesome! I'm really glad you like them :)))) I will definitely keep this exact comment in my brain when planning future new additions to the site!
Hello! I was wondering if we are able to use NC Upcycle Fortune Cookie on side accounts? Other cookies that don't allow use on sides say so, but this one gives items/neopoints and I don't want to get in trouble!~~tsunami_side
Hey, so unfortunately you can't because it involves Neopoints which is where the problem lies. Sorry about that.
Howdy! Since the plot has come to an end, will we see Fyora return to The Hidden Tower? It is basically her home and she has always maintained ownership. To celebrate her return, maybe we could see a new item or two (IE: Fyoras Rod) and some old ones retire? Things need to be shaken up in that tower =) Thank you! ~~_mariokart_
Right? I miss Fyora in the Tower too, I think she was taking as long as she could to really relax and resuscitate. But you should definitely see her there sooner than later ;)
Hi all, sorry this is a short editorial this week. Most of your questions are centered around big projects that we really do want to improve/fix but they require a lot of time and resources. Everytime we have an event on the site our priorities have to shift hence the reason for several delays. With things winding down a little we hope to tackle parts of projects slowly and with care. We WILL keep you updated if there are updates made. So we do hear you and we are working slowly to get things accomplished. Have a great weekend and enjoy the final rounds of the Altador Cup!
Greetings! I come with a humble request on behalf of an old, unreleased Petpet. After browsing through the depths of Jellyneo, an interesting Petpet caught my eye, going by nothing more than the name "krawkpet_12". It's a stout, spunky looking mushroom fellow with a remarkably affable and warm look in its eyes. I've shown this Petpet to users offsite and we all seem to be in agreement that this perky little lad deserves a chance! There are many fascinating items left to gather dust in Neopian servers, but I and many others agree that this guy should be in the loving care of an owner, just like every other Petpet. Won't you give this fungus a shot? Thank you!~~ shiin0tic
OMG! He totally is adorable!!! Just doing the basic look around I'm not seeing him. I will attempt to do some deep diving, but at the moment he isn't hiding in any obvious places :(
Hey all! *extends hand and pretends to steal your nose* I bought an altador pass which I thought would be for the whole run, the items were awesome but it seems the "knee high heister boots" are being sketchy about showing up in my closet. Just mine or is this a job for Donny?~~sparky97662
What? Not my nose, how could you!? Lol. So strange, yes I see what you're talking about this. I will amend this ASAP! You have my word.
*sees there are new summer Dyeworks* that's nice. *sees dyeworks potion bundles* YES! so NT Editor Queen, I think this idea for bundles came about last year from some users, I think. But I believe it might have been for GBCs so will we see the bundles treatment for GBCs too in the near future? *wraps it in a satin bow tie*~~perduco
Ohhh I love that title NT Editor Queen it's neutral it could be either editor, the mystery continues..But anyways that's a fabulous idea!! I will pitch it to the team!!
Hi there!! I just wanted to say that I'm loving the increased communication between TNT and the playerbase lately. Having been a part of many online games and communities, I strongly believe it's one of the most effective ways of keeping users happy and committed to the site, and it's so great that you guys are making us feel like our voices are being heard! It's hard to please everyone, but you guys always try your best and I know I'm not the only one who appreciates that. Thank you!! ^_^ ~unbridledlove
We love talking to you all as well! We want to cultivate a community full of warmth, communication and cookies..oh wait cookies?…umm yeah cookies ¯_(ツ)_/¯ because why not.
Hey Scrappy! I was thinking, as the dyeworks re-release capsules were such a success - it'd be pretty cool if we could have a wonderclaw re-release capsule in the future! Much like dyeworks, there are probably a whole whack of items newer users missed out on. I'd personally love the chance to obtain some I traded away long, long ago. Thanks! :)~~ mexxyyy
Hmmm I will look into this and see if it's possible. So consider it looked into!
Hey you guys! I was just wondering, do you ever think that one day in the future, you could host polls or a place to submit ideas as to what wearables and what nc items we'd like to see next? My friends and I have loads upon loads of ideas for new clothes for our neopet friends and we'd like to see them come to life someday!~~ wolfycries104
We love hearing from you guys, you have such unique and creative perspectives so I think this is definitely something we can do.
Hello fellow readers, Announcements include: The final round of The Altador Cup tournament will begin on the 26th! In addition to that we have also integrated a new Captcha system to prevent any lookie lews and naysayers from ruining the authenticity of the games. So with that enjoy the articles, stories and comics from this week :)
This weeks Donny's Corner is short but sweet for ya!!
Pretty Flowers Foreground and Picket Fence Foreground are now wearable, and restock in Ugga Shinies.
Borovan Day T-Shirt is now wearable
Hey guys! *tosses corn dogs* Is the Lonely Garden Path Background supposed to be a no-trade item or not? I got one from the Trading Post but it's saying in my inventory that it's a no-trade item. I didn't know it beforehand and I'm a bit worried! I thought it would be a proper transferable item because the previous Overpowered items (Bridge to the Orchard BG, Falling Leaves Shirt, Starry Bedroom Canopy) are as well! Could it please be a transferable one too? *Puppyblew eyes*
*dodges flying food* bleh...those are not for me but I guess I'll answer this anyways. Well, simply put there was a little mix up...very sorry about that! However, we have updated all the exclusive items awarded from Overpowered so they can be sold and traded!
