Donny's Corner: Fixed Altador Team Cuffs, restocking issues with NC Fortune Cookie & various other bug fixes around the site.
Hey Jade *passes around crepes*. Every year I come back to Neopets, to play in the Altador Cup, and I customize one of my pets to help get into the spirit. I remember back in AC 6,7, and 8, if you bought one of the NC passes you'd get special items based on the team you joined. Those items have since become really rare and almost impossible to come across. Some of us didn't buy those items (I only bought one of the three and don't even play for that team anymore) and I was wondering if it'd be possible for a future mystery capsule-like item to come out which would give people a chance to collect all the items from their favorite teams. Thanks in advance for taking the time to read this
Hmmm...well I don't know the exact items you speak of...but I can say there is an Altador Cup retired capsule coming very soon so stay tuned ;)
Hiii, I love my trophy for Charity Corner, however it seems to sit next to the 2018 trophy and not at the end of my trophy list like it should. Any chance this could be fixed. Thanks :)~~bikinibotm
Take another look at your Charity Corner trophy, it should be in its place now :)
Hi TNT *Hands out a freshly baked pigeon pie*! You are doing a super great job and I love all the new petpet colors that have been released. One of my pets is really interested in white wolf-like petpets. I was wondering if you could make a white Werhond. It would make him super happy and he would pet him all the time. He'll love him and hug him and name him Ghost!~~ere173
A White Werhond. Done.
Hi. Is it possible to put in a request with the staff member responsible for the Mystery Pic? In the last few contests, the Mystery Pic answer has been in the name of the item prize given out for winning. It defeats the purpose of the competition to have the answer given to us. Prizes can serve as a good hint, but they shouldn’t be giving the answer. Thank you for reading!~~sixlets1
We’ve spoken to the staff member responsible for the Mystery Pic about this.
Dear TNT! I hope I am placing this request early enough. I would love either a Chocolate or Wraith Eyrie for their pet day in October. Or possibly a Chocolate Eyrie can be released for the Chocolate Ball in September? Thank you for considering this humble request from an Eyrie lover.~~aleu1986
Yes, you’re very early. We can certainly pass on this request, and we’ll see where it goes from there.
HI TNT! ^^ I know you're about to get swamped with petpet color requests after the last editorial, but I just want to point out the cutest, most under appreciated petpet...the Deaver. I mean LOOK AT THAT FACE! At the moment, the only colors he comes in are kind of dark for such an adorable little fella. :c I would LOVE to see a faerie color for the Deaver, but I'd settle for anything a little brighter. And if it just so happened to match a faerie yurble...well...*pushes 8 large pizzas your way and wiggles eyebrows*~~zafire
A brighter Deaver colour, ideally Faerie. Got it.
Hello, Can you release the Skarl Collectable Charm through something other than King Skarl or at least make the drop rate 10x greater? Clearly that daily is rarely done if none have been seen for over 5months since you 'fixed' the prizes not being awarded.~~sell_me_stamps
The programmer has not had a chance to look into this, what with all the events going on. However, we should have a clearer idea of what exactly is up with the prize and what we’re going to do about it by next week.
is the daily dare still going to start soon...? most people were expecting it to start before the altador cup, but if that happens now, they're going to overlap almost entirely.... did the team decide to move daily dare later in the summer, or is it still starting really soon? :/~~neon3002
Well, no. The team decided somewhere along the line that they couldn’t handle everything together, nor would it be very enjoyable for the players, so Daily Dare has been postponed to after the Altador Cup. Exact dates are yet to be finalized.
Hi TNT! Charity Corner is over but the Neohome Superstore and the Ever Stocked General Store are still closed. Could you please inquire as to whether they plan on reopening again soon? Thanks!~~pumpkinplushie
Both have now opened, so go shop to your heart’s content!
Hi everyone! Our apologies for the confusion on last week's issue, on our end it was reporting as posted when in reality it wasn't quite published yet. In other news our Comic Con After Party is just around the corner - July 19th to be exact. And we would like to invite you to join us. This year we have a limited amount of seats available since it is indeed a free event. There will lots of fun activities, tnt members to chat with, we will be showcasing all new things to come in the Neopian world all tied in with an amazing themed party! (more theme details coming soon...) So be sure to keep your eyes peeled and sign up on Monday the 3rd for the survey interest list to attend this party. This marks the 20th year of Neopets! This is a celebration you won't wanna miss. But without further adieu let's get on with the editorial!
Fixed art for Paper Hearts Garland
Fixed item bugs
The puzzle adventure site theme isn't included as a part of the Bring Back the Old Days perk for the Charity Corner. Can it be added since the codes from that game can no longer be redeemed? Thank you.
Yes, we will add this to the list of available site themes.
I was wondering if this perk (Fast and Furious) from the CC will or will not work with the NC Mall Training cookie or if it will be similar to some of the other perks that do not work with the skirmish boons?
Fast and Furious will work with the Training Fortune Cookie.
Hey Jade! The Royal Faellie released last week looks amazing! Players were pointing out that someone had requested a petpet with that same paint scheme through the editorial, so I thought maybe I could put in a request of my own. The Fleurbik was released in 2003 and STILL does not have ANY colors for it aside from its base. Please consider adding colors for the Fleurbik! It’s not the cutest petpet, but it deserves love too!
Request placed with the content team.
Hello TNT! I'm not sure if this has been asked or answered previously, but are there any plans to go back and give some underappreciated petpets some new colors? Some petpets come in dozens of colors, while others seem to have been forgotten with 5 or less color choices. I would love to see a royal and/or blue mimbi. hint hint Thank you!
Well, we have so many Petpets that it’s easy for some of them to be overlooked. However, we love all our Petpets just as much as we love our players, so if there’s any Petpet in particular that you’re hoping to see, just write in to the Editorial and we’ll put in a request with the content team to make it happen!
Hi TNT, please reopen the AC prize shop after the CC. There was no warning in the news which there usually is each year and many of us haven't spent our points as we usually wait until the last minute to decide what's most profitable. I was looking at the shop only yesterday but was going to spend my points after CC finished and had no idea the shop would disappear:( please reopen it, I'm really sad I got to all-star last year and my points are gone. Thanks
This was a mistake on our part. We have reopened both prize shops. Please make sure to redeem all your points by May 24, 23:59:59 NST, as announced in the news.
Hi. Will Cartogriphication from the Charity Corner perk shop be limited to one use, or will it be unlimited use since it only lasts a day for 100 points?
It can be applied ten times. We have added the caps for all the perks to the prize shop preview.
Hello! Thanks for showing users the perks preview so we have an idea of how much we want to donate. Will there be more perks added or is the shop for this year finalized? Thanks!
The list of perks for this year is final, and is the same as is currently previewed.
Don't you think that the Charity Corner perk offering 3% extra bank interest is a bit unbalanced compared to others? It can either offer barely anything at all, or upwards of 60m NP. Obviously you need to be very rich for that to be the case, but it's an incredibly large difference considering the effort and perk points required will be the same for everyone.
The amount that can be gained through the Bank Bribery perk will always differ greatly from player to player depending on their account size, irrespective of the percentage increase offered. It is up to each player to decide whether the time and effort required for the perk is worth it to them.
I love the new NC items and prizes from games like Patapult, Wonderclaw, and events like the Negg Festival, and just the goodies that appear in the mall like pencil fence! I have a request--I would love, love, love a necklace that had a little rainbow on it, or a rainbow and little clouds...something of that nature. P.S. I think many of us would love a charm bracelet for a pet! (There could be different bracelets, like a cute one with a little cloud, rainbow, sun, and a goth one, magic one, etc.) Thanks for all you do! *hugs*~~a_life_of_love
Wow of all the things I've received here I don't think I've ever gotten a hug :'( that's so sweet. But I'm so glad you're enjoying those. I try my darndest to come up with good ideas for you guys. Ohhh what a cute idea! Sounds perfect for Summer!
Is the Ice Hissi morphing potion released in the news a mistake or are lab only colors now fair game for morphing potions? It would be nice to keep lab ray exclusives lab ray exclusive... Rare pets are good to have. Before draiks and krawks were deflated through dailies giving out their morphing potions they were extremely sought after. Ice hissi's aren't as desirable as krawks and draiks once were but the principle of exclusivity is important so players have more to strive towards. Pets and colors are way to easy to achieve nowadays.~~sixlets1
We agree with that sentiment. The Ice Hissi Morphing Potion was a rare exception, and if you ever see one you will also see that it is very rare AND very expensive.
Hello TNT, I would like to ask you to reconsider the points conversion rate for players whom had leftover points from last year’s charity corner, many through no fault of their own! It was mentioned in a previous editorial that players’ points wouldn’t be deleted but only being able to redeem 1% of their points is just as good as deleting! I beg you to reconsider this ASAP before the end of this year’s charity corner. Thank you so much for reading.~~amymunro13
We acknowledge our mistake from Charity Corner 2018, in not communicating the spending costs and caps earlier - as a result, some of you (0.6% of the players that participated, to be precise) set incredibly generous goals for yourselves! Your points were so much higher than the player average, that we could not possibly offer similarly priced perks for you to be able to use up your points. (There is no way we could offer 25+ weeks of daily positive random events - that’s 6 months! - or 25+ years of increased bank interest.) Thus we were not left with an equitable way to reward those who went over and beyond in 2018 and for that we apologize. This year, we have set some caps in an attempt to be clearer what you can spend. But as the theme of the event is de-clutter, we generally welcome clearing out of items you don’t need.
So this is the whole reason we wanted to do at least some carry over of points - we considered various alternative solutions and finally, we felt it best to allow you to spend a token portion of points in this year's shop. This reduction had to happen in one form or another irrespective of the solution we chose. We agree that the portion you carry over is intentionally small. But it is still enough for some free perks.
We took definite steps towards avoiding a similar situation this year, and therefore offered a preview of the perk shop so that none of our players are left feeling shortchanged this time.
We would also like to add that the carry-over of points was a one-time exception - we do not intend to allow points to carry over from one event to another ever again.
Salutations. It's been mentioned that Avatar Goldmine gives a 30% increased chance of getting several avatars including the Snowager-Rawr! Is this increase to 30%, where there would be a decent chance of getting it, or increased by 30%, where at its something like 1 in 10000 chance of getting it, the increase wouldn't even be noticeable? Thank you.~~daemonschile
If you check out the updated FAQs, you'll see it now says that the exact increase in probability is yet to be revealed. While we were going for a 30% increase in probability, we are yet to finalize it, and we will provide greater clarity in the FAQs once the exact numbers are finalized.
Many have noticed that the new host of this year's Charity Corner, Atsumi, bares a startling resemblence to Mirsha Grelinek, the Captain of the Shenkuu Yooyuball team. Given they are both from Shenkuu, and look nearly identical, are they related?~~herdygerdy
I'm just going to leave this here and let the speculation brew. :)
Hello! Thank you for all the hard work y’all put into listening to feedback and fixing things when issues arise. :) On that note, I wanted to ask, what’s the best way to submit if we notice a customization glitch on a particular Neopet? I see people typically send them to the editorial... is that the preferred mode of alerting y’all to a problem? I have a Darigan Usul who’s something of a dandy and he’d love to wear his black lace gloves, but a strange green line appears on the screen whenever he tries to put them on! I wasn’t sure where the best place to go was to ask about fixing it. Thanks!~~karmachameleons
Hi there, so you can either submit a ticket and they will ensure it gets to the right person or yes you can submit them here. Donny's gone ahead and fixed those gloves for you as well! And may I just say those gloves are perfect for your Darigan Usul! I had to envision it for myself and then I got a little carried away so I thought I would share some goth inspo for your pet, hope you have a great weekend!
Donny's Corner:Fixed the bug that was causing the Wishing Well to grant inactive items.
gives you all my NP TNT PLEASE! I'm begging you! Literally. May you please please PLEASE fashion a Faellie in the colour scheme of a Royal Girl Kyrii? I've been asking for years. Maybe you think I will backfire and take the rights. You can take my UN out so you have no proof it was me! I love my Kyrii and I LOVE my Faellie. The faerie colour just isn't close! But so close! I'll bake you cookies for an entire year. You can send me an 100 question quiz about Neo that requires all answers to be correct. You take suggestions all the time! =D This would be absolutely delightful if you could as well! I remember my sister waited 6 years for you guys to release a Christmas Poogle, because she wanted all Christmas pets. LOL! So long ago. Take care ps please and Thank you Kindly
The quiz is on its way. Please fill out your answers and send it to the return address enclosed, along with a batch of 10,950 cookies (that’s one per staff member for every day of the year, including weekends and holidays). Much appreciated! The Royal Faellie will be released on the receipt of your parcel.
Hi, There are now 25 Charms in the stamp page -- any plans to make an avatar for it? Thanks!~~qwandu
Not anytime soon. We think collectors have enough avatars to work towards for now.
