Hey, TNT. I've been contributing to the Neopian Times since issue 98 and humans as owners have always been a part of the worlds within the stories and comics of the Times. In fact, in the editorial for issue 699, it was stated that although the focus should always be on Neopian characters, human owners still play a big role in Neopets' lives. So my question is, why are humans now being disallowed from the NT? After all, the NT is a compilation of fanworks we share with each other based on our experiences on the Neopets site, emphasis on "fan". They're still different from everything in the site proper. Not to mention, it seems unfair that a couple of stories that breach the current NT rules made it into a recent issue, but after 900+ issues of being allowed, humans are suddenly not allowed in the NT. Thanks!
You are right it was a little rash to do that. We apologize for this. Honestly, some of my favourite NT comics have involved humans. After some consideration, we have decided that as long as humans aren't the main focus, any submission that includes humans will be allowed in the NT.
