The 2010 Jellyneo Negg Hunt began on Saturday, April 3rd at 5:07pm NST and ended on Sunday, April 11th at 11:59pm NST. We hope you had a good time! The news post comment area was monitored at all times by at least one person, and staff members actively gave hints and helped users along. The time spent in the comments was like a week long camp for us--we met lots of new people and got to know them better. The inspirational or sweet things that were said kept us going! Sometimes, there was a lull and the delirium set in and we got a little...crazy (karaoke, Stargate, and Sailor Moon, anyone? :D), but we didn't mind! We saved and compiled some noteworthy comments and now we would like to share them with all of you!
This year's mottos were: "If you aren't delirious, you're not doing it right!" (coined by Peaches) and "DIVE IN!" (coined by Nynex, because many items/clues involved diving into bins).
We are definitely motivated to keep doing events like the Negg Hunt. Thank you for participating! *group hug*
faerie_xweetok1999, 04/4/2010, 4:31 am NST
ha. do there's a portal on the page that lets people comment on the announcement on the portals. yeah. great job, JN! lets me find another one faster! HeHe!!
starr_2525, 04/4/2010, 9:13 am NST
@ Jellyneo Team
Its easier because you don't loose all you answers whenever you shut down you computer + nothing seems time sensitive so far (lost egg #12 to that last year - checked the spot 10 times but never at the correct time)
The content is not easier though. This year's negg hunt has taken it up a notch - its even better than last year's hunt
dave - JN Staff, 04/4/2010, 8:17 pm NST
Neggs neggs neggs... neggs neeeegggssss neeggss...
jazleigh, 04/5/2010, 2:02 pm NST
@nynex thank you!!! still don't know what i'm doing but now i know what i should be doing.....
am I the only one who is gald JN staff do not wrtie plots for neopets? I'd be sunk!
simkim, 04/5/2010, 3:09 pm NST
I want to give kudos to the staffers for having the spoken text in written text. Being deaf, I REALLY REALLY appreciate that being done. Lots of Kudos!!!
drzoidberg, 04/5/2010, 3:35 pm NST
Six clues, three neggs, and infinite fun/frustration. Well done, JN staff! You've really outdone yourselves this year.
Back to hunting... sigh...
zemarl, 04/5/2010, 8:30 pm NST
you know you're tired and stumped when finding a red herring is the highlight of your day XD

When did Conan O'Brien start working at the IDB? |D
(We suppose Grog does look a little like Conan x))
webcomix, 04/5/2010, 9:51 pm NST
I was going over the staff listing for fun and noticed that Joey's gone! Awww. I loved Joey...his red hair, his igloo, his love for musicals and his hate for sweeping papers...
But that being said, I just want to say that jN plots are infinitely more fun than Neopian ones, mostly because they are much more puzzle-y and difficult =D
webcomix, 04/6/2010, 12:19 am NST
Hello, Mr. Red Herring! Oh, I'm doing swell at 3:20 AM.
And you? That's lovely to hear!

I am so happy with this new portal it is giving me so much hope thank you rosie for working super hard.

Torratz's clue, it's... Dude, what? They're not plants
yupparoo, 04/6/2010, 10:37 pm NST
The staff lounge is hilarious! You guys did an awesome job - the PA provided plenty of laughs!
dave - JN Staff, 04/7/2010, 1:50 am NST
Any hints for where the Staff Lounge is? I can't find it.
dave - JN Staff, 04/7/2010, 1:57 am NST
What's up with the soda machine being out of soda? How do we get it stocked?
illusioniste - JN Staff, 04/7/2010, 1:59 am NST
@dave: You were supposed to order some!
nynex - JN Staff, 04/7/2010, 2:01 am NST
that's what you get for not adding Nexy Cola ):
marfbear, 04/7/2010, 11:20 am NST
This hunt is entirely too engrossing. I got so involved that I forgot to empty the litter box and my cat peed on my bed! It's all your fault!
drzoidberg, 04/7/2010, 2:50 pm NST
To JN Staff: Don't let the Hint Grubbers get you down! This wouldn't be half as much fun if you made it super easy. We owe you all socks/buckets/dung/respective objects of love.
gte847n, 04/7/2010, 7:28 pm NST
Just want to say to the staff that I'm enjoying this and now my goal is just to complete it. Going to "try" not to let it get me frustrated anymore as well, even if I don't understand how everyone is getting it done! I think I'm struggling more this year than last year!
drzoidberg, 04/7/2010, 11:56 am NST
8 neggs, 2 herrings, 2 unsolved clues... and miles of work to do on the safe, vending machine, etc. JN: you sure know how to write a plot!
blizzar24, 04/7/2010, 7:01 pm NST
dave has a creepy looker (no offense dave)
(We think they meant locker. It was definitely traumatising!)
webcomix, 04/7/2010, 7:12 pm NST
I now call the first meeting of the jN Overthinkers Anonymous (jNOA) to order! *rings a bell*
On the agenda: things to overthink. 1, the safe. 2, Torratz's clue. 3. Which staffer to name the new jN cereal after.
webcomix, 04/7/2010, 7:28 pm NST
A friend of mine came into my room, saw the pile of papers on my desk that contained the matrix, list of schedule clues, my lair map, my vending machine code...and declared that I was taking this more seriously than upcoming exams xD
Whatever, my exam's on the 16th and this ends on Sunday :3
zemarl, 04/7/2010, 9:15 am NST
creators of the jn negg hunt have eaten my brain!

Doctor Not Ruby
Give me the clues! I've got a bad case of negg hunt blues.
smith, 04/8/2010, 12:05 am NST
Ughhh, this safe, is better than any real life safe I've encountered. How do I solve it, and how can I get my hands on one?
webcomix, 04/8/2010, 12:08 am NST
I wouldn't want a safe like this, because it'd be unfortunate to lock my precious things away in a safe I couldn't open xD
Context for the next few comments:
We were talking about how Negg Hunt puzzles could be used as a teaching tool for children.
fruitcupandspoons, 04/8/2010, 3:36 am NST
I know it uses basic skills, but I don't know how kindergarteners would like that.
illusioniste - JN Staff, 04/8/2010, 3:39 am NST
@Peaches: You just explain to them: "Kids, one day you are going to discover Jellyneo, and when Easter rolls around, you're going to discover the JN Easter Negg Hunt. This is to prepare you for the hours of hair pulling and brain atrophy that is sure to follow."
fruitcupandspoons, 04/8/2010, 3:40 am NST
Even earlier prepping than for the SAT, eh? xD
illusioniste - JN Staff, 04/8/2010, 3:41 am NST
@Peaches: Yes, the earlier the better! New moms sometimes play Mozart or Beethoven to their kids. JN Negg Hunt puzzles are just as good (if not better)!
fruitcupandspoons, 04/8/2010, 3:46 am NST
I'm sure you can market that idea to the paid programming guys. Not just "My Baby Can Read," but "My Baby Can Read, Find Neggs, Decipher Codes, Solve Logic Puzzles, and Crack Safes! And she's only TWO years old!"
simkim, 04/8/2010, 3:47 am NST
@Illy, I'd do that if I had kids, no kidding. This is one of the best sites for kids to grow up on (that and Neopets) because they're both very educational without being obvious about it. I could go on and on and on about it, but...
I'm going to just have to live with 9/12 neggs. That's better than last year, anyway.
And I just thought "OPEN SESAME!!!!" Tell whoever designed this puzzle - they need to put it up for a Noble Prize in Causing Overthinking.
daughters_ofthe_moon, 04/8/2010, 4:17 am NST
omg finally!! turns out thinking like a 4 year old actually helped me solve part of the safe
illusioniste - JN Staff, 04/8/2010, 4:24 am NST
@simkim: Preschoolers make the best safe crackers!
simkim, 04/8/2010, 4:31 am NST
Indeed, Illy. If I ever need a safe cracked, I'll be sure to find a preschooler to do it for me, lol.
simkim, 04/8/2010, 5:00 am NST
I GOT IT!!!! Overthinking is definitely overrated.
I had to stifle myself from screaming as hubby's sleeping... but I did shake my hands in the air!!!
Oh man, I'm so proud of myself!!!
starr_2525, 04/8/2010, 5:19 am NST
I love how you don't lose your info when the computer goes off this year (major thunder storm last night)
Its a great negg hunt
ub3r_g00b3r, 04/8/2010, 5:53 am NST
*Stars vomitting numbers*
I can't take this anymore!
lkozma, 04/8/2010, 8:24 am NST
I'm impressed that Socko could write a plot guide for anything, even the petpet park one!
Guess Socko wasn't pulling his weight in that pairing, eh?
guitar_champ980, 04/8/2010, 11:07 am NST
*wonders how you have a giant capsule tube system*
Unless you mean somewhere on the website, and not a real building. xD
guitar_champ980, 04/8/2010, 11:11 am NST
You guys really have a real staff lounge in a real building? I don't know why I can't get over this, there's so many flaws in that! XD Because from the Staffers page, you all live in different places confusing my braiiinnn.
holseti, 04/8/2010, 12:16 pm NST
Exam went alright. This Negg Hunt is probably harder.
dark169, 04/8/2010, 1:11 pm NST
13 clues, 7 Neggs, 6 Rainbow Plushies, 2 Red Herrings, and a Dave Plushie in a Brain Tree...
guitar_champ980, 04/8/2010, 1:19 pm NST
Nynex, you should get your own trophy for being here all day and answering questions and giving hints! XD
holseti, 04/8/2010, 2:09 pm NST
Awesome, I've finished! Now I can get to my actual work. Thanks for a great game, staff; this was incredibly enjoyable even if frustrating at times.
dan4884, 04/8/2010, 2:11 pm NST
I have to agree with holseti, this was a really great way to procrastinate on homework. =D
larryland, 04/8/2010, 2:13 pm NST
Yay! Found my last negg! Thanks the staff for such a wonderfully difficult game
faraday, 04/8/2010, 11:33 pm NST
@illy: Please pass my thanks on to you and the other JN Staff for a painfully frustrating, time-consuming, sleep-depriving, but ultimately fun negg hunt... this was my first and thankfully I am now done... see you next year
lupe_loops841, 04/8/2010, 11:41 pm NST
The rosie negg was disturbing...
webcomix,04/9/2010, 12:50 am NST
Level 1: 7 moves. Level 2: 14. Level 3: 48. Level 4: 100.
pikasuno, 04/9/2010, 1:16 am NST
i love the fact that, to get scifis clue you had to do something difficult, to understand it, you had to translate it, and even now after all that it's STILL difficult. Illy i would say you're already super evil
fruitcupandspoons, 04/9/2010, 1:44 am NST
I meant to leave a comment earlier today, after I'd finished the hunt, but I had to rush to class. So I'd just like to say this: Good work on an extremely challenging event this year, JN Staff! You've successfully made me anticipated, excited, delighted, intrigued, challenged, frustrated, angry, and in despair within a period of a few days. And tickled with the little easter eggs. It's been fun conversing with other negg hunters, too! Here's to next year's hunt.
smith, 04/9/2010, 1:46 am NST
@peaches: I second that! I can't wait for next year's hunt.
gioeva, 04/9/2010, 1:47 am NST
Same here about next year's hunt, but I know I'll probably be annoyed all over again ..
smith, 04/9/2010, 1:49 am NST
@gioeva: Guess that means we can't complain next year, because we're asking for it, literally
yachtdepon, 04/9/2010, 1:55 am NST
Btw, I am so glad I have enough motivation to do this year's Negg Hunt. The past Negg Hunts I would only have got 3 or fewer Neggs because of how difficult the clues were. This time, though, I just decided to go for it, as I always loved every JN's plots. It kinda tests how people think, but doesn't necessarily mean that if you complete it first that you are super smart. It reminds me how difficult the simple things in life might be. XD
kitalovessm, 04/9/2010, 9:54 am NST
I'm almost 26 AND a programmer. I tend to overthink EVERYTHING. It's a good thing I love logic puzzles o_o
the_cloudy_sky, 04/9/2010, 10:04 am NST
Technically I'm still a child, but I tend to overcomplicate things anyway, so... maybe I need to ask my sister, who is seven, for help. (She's delusional as well!)
pingubaba,04/9/2010, 10:06 am NST
Clouds your sister is the solution :o
Too bad I don't have any children in the house. *hunts for kids*
diana, 04/9/2010, 7:46 pm NST
9 clues so far, 1 Negg, 0 red herrings. This is why I'm going to be active on JN everyday of my life now.
pingubaba, 04/9/2010, 11:28 am NST
Okies my dad was no help in the safe xD I really do need to find a kid.
isosyn, 04/9/2010, 8:45 pm NST
hehe thanks Nexy! great hunt, all you JN peeps should pat yourselves on the back and have a cookie. and maybe some fresh cocoa or lemonade. and a hug.
dopyoke452, 04/9/2010, 8:46 pm NST
I agree with Isosyn. This blows actual neopet plots out of the water. Great job JN
lucille, 04/10/2010, 3:40 am NST
I am so lost then because I thought the little numbers meant how many times you use that letter. I think pingubaba and I are looking at the same safe but not the one that the rest of you see. :D
pingubaba, 04/10/2010, 3:40 am NST
I really do need to steal a kid from the neighborhood >:]
yachtdepon, 04/10/2010, 3:41 am NST
This is why people avoid school - to avoid being over educated, resulting them to overthink :D
pingubaba, 04/10/2010, 3:42 am NST
This is the first somebody told me I have too much school xD
pingubaba, 04/10/2010, 4:05 am NST
I would say it was simple to figure out, but it wasn't. Tough the puzzle itself is easy. the only problem is us overthinking. xD Did that with EVERY hint :P
simkim, 04/10/2010, 4:15 am NST
Since I realize that Jen's clue is something referring to the childhood song, whatever... I have no idea, as I am deaf, and even doing imdb or googling just gets me one of two answers - or snow white and those two kinda don't have anything in common... You may tell Jen that she has me thoroughly stumped on her clue. :)
lucille, 04/10/2010, 5:11 am NST
Safe...I have tried every combo on how to put two elements together and I can never get it to fit...I think my key is too big. I sure have learned a lot about how to use paint if nothing else. I have also learned a lot about JN that I can not wait to apply once I get past this negg hunt.
simkim, 04/10/2010, 5:13 am NST
I believe that's the point of the Negg Hunt - to get people more familiar with the various sections of Jellyneo. :)
^ Yes, besides with being a fun event, that was the point of the whole Hunt. If just one person discovered something useful and new about JN that they never knew was there before, then we have accomplished our mission. :)
lucille, 04/10/2010, 5:18 am NST
This has been the funnest time I have ever had on JN...so much so that my neopets are missing me and my guild thinks I am MIA. I have been with JN and neopets for 5 years now and this will be the first trophy I MIGHT get on JN.
lucille, 04/10/2010, 5:26 am NST
OK, I see...back to the safe I go since I want to keep myself out of trouble. My husband and kids are so glad that the negg hunt is almost over even though they have been enjoying all of the take out dinners they still miss me.
simkim, 04/10/2010, 5:26 am NST
Maybe trophy that says "Memorable comment!" ;)
I agree, definitely so much fun that my hubby might have to take my puter away from me in order for me to regain my sanity! :)
lucille, 04/10/2010, 6:03 am NST
OH MY GOODNESS...I did it...thanks so much to you all...I opened the safe so now I can move forward...it was quite a complex yet simple puzzle...I loved it. IF I solved it then anyone can! Why didn't I see that before. Wow, no wonder JellyNeo is so awesome...you all have to be very smart to put together such an awesome negg hunt that is tons of fun!
kic24, 04/10/2010, 6:38 am NST
Can't we use a huge hammer to break the safe open?
henry622, 04/10/2010, 6:39 am NST
my brain brust
kic24, 04/10/2010, 6:41 am NST
Most of the times I brush my teeth instead of brushing my brains, but go on if you like though xD
illusioniste - JN Staff, 04/10/2010, 6:42 am NST
I think he misspelled 'burst' :P
kic24, 04/10/2010, 6:43 am NST
I do hope so... xD
henry622, 04/10/2010, 6:43 am NST
sorry about that .Dave's safe made my brain stuck.
soraja, 04/10/2010, 7:09 am NST
OK, I'm officially giving up now... It's really a shame, because I managed to find 7 clues, but I was eighter too stupid or simply had the wrong ideas to find even ONE NEGG!! And that safe was too difficult for me... Even with all your hints (thanks for those, by the way^^) I couldn't figure it out... *sighs sadly*
I had a lot of fun (and spend a ridiculous amout of time in front of the pc) on this hunt. But you should really consider to make it a little less complicated next year. I appreciate the work you put in it, I really do, but personally I would have liked a little success from time to time. As in, a little less complicated quests for the noobs (like me *g*)
But then, with a little encouragement...
soraja, 04/10/2010, 7:27 am NST
Guys, you just made my day!!!
I FOUND MY FIRST NEGG!!! *shouts it from the roof of her house*
Alright, so it was kind of obvious... Ok, one more hour left and only 11 Neggs to go... should be do-able^^
^ We loved seeing success stories. :D
bananas, 04/10/2010, 7:16 am NST
Something has happened!
You found a clue for the safe, but the content beast confiscated it.
simkim, 04/10/2010, 7:23 am NST
Dang, Kat's clue was way blinding obvious once I found her lil patch of grass... Wow. I'm impressed with the design of that one. I love the designs of the neggs and herrings. :)
soofa, 04/10/2010, 3:37 pm NST
OMG I finished the hunt!!!!!!! Woohoo Im so happy I didn't think I was going to finish it but I did! Yaay. I have been like isolated from the world for a week but it was totally worth it! Thank you a lot for your hints and thanks JN for this Negg Hunt, I had a lot of fun!
meercatristonhopets3, 04/10/2010, 4:23 pm NST
Found Kat's negg I was looking at the right section, just not the right page
Oh, and that was the BEST NEGG EVER :)
yellow4me, 04/10/2010, 4:25 pm NST
OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG!!!!! I FINNISHED THE NEGG HUNT!!!
16 clue, 3, herring and12 neggs.
Do I need all the herring?
tomatereloco, 04/10/2010, 6:31 pm NST
this negg hunt was GREAT!! SO MUCH FUN!! thank you all Jn staff!!
flyingchair, 04/10/2010, 7:03 pm NST
Finally got Sci's grass! Thanks, TJNT, for helping us through when we needed it and making such an engaging event. The world needs more puzzles in my opinion. :)
heaveaway05, 04/10/2010, 7:13 pm NST
all I got to say is thank you JN for not giving the top prize to the people who finished every clue on its release date...and if JN does that Ill be very upset at JN
jazzeh, 04/10/2010, 7:24 pm NST
ROSIE'S WAY OF FINDING A NEGG JUST MADE MY DAY. BAHAAA *rofl*
belial, 04/10/2010, 7:44 pm NST
OMG!!!! Found Sci's grass!!!! I was totally looking elsewhere! woohoo! I'm done with the hunt! Peace at last! I loved it though, my first JN plot. I'm doing all of them from now on. Love you's! :*
pengilover64, 04/10/2010, 8:35 pm NST
xDD After getting the bonus, I am extremely PO'd because I have that exact same thing sitting on the desk in front of me D:
Well, at the very least those were some of the hardest puzzles I've ever done xD
You guys are awesome :D
fury_of_the_flames, 04/10/2010, 9:24 pm NST
i'm still stuck on sci-fi's X_x; i know the clues for it but i just can't seem to figure it out *shakes fist in the air* sci-fi! i will beat your evil clue! >_< *is determined*
kitalovessm, 04/10/2010, 9:47 pm NST
...I just found the skeith. My reaction to it was me yelling out "AHHH FUDGE MONKEY BUTTHEADS" and rapidly smacking my forehead a few times.
khat, 04/10/2010, 10:03 pm NST
I would like to say that, even though I was extremely annoyed by the safe puzzle, and the slider part of the schedule, and the decoding of Sci's clue, the rest of it was pretty fun, and since I know first hand how much coding and work even simple things can take, I would like to say thank you, and good work.
kitalovessm, 04/10/2010, 10:08 pm NST
@tracey - Suzuka's negg brings all the petpets to the yard, and they're like, it's bootylicious.
dark169, 04/10/2010, 11:08 pm NST
Well, I'm ending my hunt at the following stats:
10 Sloth Sightings.
5 Arzaks in a jar.
4 Arzaks in a jar given to Ally.
3 whacked Rosies (The Grarrl).
2 red herrings.
1 partridge in a pear tree.
0.5 Dave Plushies in a Brain Tree.
(Upon asking the other staff members, Suzuka admitted to eating the other 0.5 of Dave. :O)
brileigh320, 04/10/2010, 11:36 pm NST
Sailor Moon? Tuxedo Max, ftw. :o
Zelda has got me stumped. xD
kataklysmos - JN Staff, 04/11/2010, 12:14 am NST
That list is mega helpful. They should provide those on tests for a mega-experience.
stellarka, 04/11/2010, 1:23 am NST
you know I dreamt last night of not being able to finish the Negg Hunt on time? I dreamt that you were already posting the scoreboard in the comments (don't ask me how xD) and I was panicking cause I hadn't found the last negg yet
So when I got up this morning the first thing I did was sit down at my computer and find it ^^
It's half past ten in the morning here
stellarka, 04/11/2010, 1:45 am NST
The negg hunt was fun Congrats to all the staffers who helped make it! It was difficult, but that's good *smile*
*awards staffers honorary negg medal for making the hunt* (comes with a free red herring!)
pingubaba, 04/11/2010, 1:49 am NST
*agrees with stellarka* The hunt wasn't easy but it was super fun. I wub you guys
kalliope, 04/11/2010, 1:51 am NST
just enough headdesking and hair-pulling and running around in circles to make it all worth it. and some of the neggs were SOOOOO cute. (jordie and socko)
re_15, 04/11/2010, 2:19 am NST
Yay!!! Got the last negg, I'm done =3 Wheee~
c_t_elder, 04/11/2010, 2:24 am NST
Being a dyscalculic, Sci's clue got the best of me. But I have it! XD I'm coming for you, pesky Sci's negg/herring!
simkim, 04/11/2010, 2:50 am NST
pair, crowd, what? I take it all back, SciFi's clue is the most fiendish. :P
lucille, 04/11/2010, 3:26 am NST
OH wow, while doing the negg hunt I found an error on jellyneo and reported it, not only did I just notice that the error was fixed very quickly BUT I have a shiny new trophy in my cabinet. :D I am doing the Happy Dance.
pingubaba, 04/11/2010, 3:29 am NST
I wonder why people are finding Torratz clue so hard :/
Though it took me 4 hours to figure out Illy's clue, while Sci only took 15 minutes xD
ginnyweasley194, 04/11/2010, 3:44 am NST
Yo >< 12/12 negg, 4 red herrings >< Thanks everyone so much >
theprotectorjerdana, 04/11/2010, 3:46 am NST
Found all the negg and red herring, thanks you all, love you all
ginnyweasley194, 04/11/2010, 4:12 am NST
@Illy: yes, I strongly thank Nynex, Kata, and Rosie too (though I'm still a bit mad with her clue :P) Just close JN for a week and get yourself free, we won't complain :P
And thanks all the other staffs :*

If the JN staff has as much fun here as I do here and at neopets then this may feel more like PLAY than work! ;)
simkim, 04/11/2010, 4:18 am NST
I GOT ALL 12 Neggs and 4 Herrings!!!!! :D :D Now my brain can go unfry.
simkim, 04/11/2010, 4:21 am NST
Thank you very much, JN Staff, for such an awesome Negg Hunt. This is going to be the most memorable event that I have had this year so far. I'm looking forward to your next plot. (I'll be sure to have some water on hand for de-frying my brain, tho.) :D
lucille, 04/11/2010, 4:35 am NST
While doing my negg hunt I have found so many different and very interesting place on jellyneo so I am going right now to check them out in more detail now that I have completed the negg hunt.
^ The best comments we could've gotten were ones like these. Thanks, everyone!
maliechen, 04/11/2010, 4:37 am NST
FINALLY I found it!!!! :D :D thanks to your hint, gioeva! still needed quite some time, an when I was at the right page I overlooked it at first, too! But now everything's great. 12/12 neggs, 4/4 herrings. Guess I'll go visit my neglected pets :)
gioeva, 04/11/2010, 4:46 am NST
@seapsp - Sci is my favourite at the moment..I like him so much that he has become my character crush of the month for April XD..

Zelda - a place with a warning.. and if you don't heed it, well then something bad happens to you
Ohkay.. *thinks* o_0 I got "gringotts", the HP bank.
bananas, 04/11/2010, 6:49 am NST
Yay finally found all neggs :D :D and herrings :D
*does happy dance*
JNT I really liked the hunt (maybe even more than a neopets plots). I will be particepating in the next one too.
Good luck to everyone who's still working on the hunt.

BTW I came across "the comic the restock ", Rosie is really good love the comic and teaser.

What is the purpost of the vending [machine]?

To be a conduit between the vendor and the vendee.

Sci saw sea shells down by the sea shore.
He saw a couple that looked really nice together. But then the tide came in and with it, more sea shells appeared. To his amazement, one shell started to drift toward this new group.
"Fascinating!" he cried.
And yes, if you can understand it, this is a hint. :)
kataklysmos - JN Staff, 04/11/2010, 9:27 am NST
[About a hint for Kata's clue and whether or not he likes "bling" in real life]:
Yeah I'm looking for something alright. Actually a couple somethings, but this "bling" is what you'll want to look for.
And yes, in actuality I don't even wear my class ring or necklace or anything of the sort. Besides, where's a mollusk going to put bling?
illusioniste - JN Staff, 04/11/2010, 9:30 am NST
@Kata: You can have krillz! (the sea life version of grillz)
Yes that was a really bad joke. I am grasping at straws now 'cause it's 10:30am. xD
illusioniste - JN Staff, 04/11/2010, 10:47 am NST
[Talking about whether or not Dave's safe could just randomly spill open]:
@ruki: Spontaneous combustion? xP Pretty sure the brand name of Dave's safe is N3v3r Br34k.
pengilover64, 04/11/2010, 12:30 pm NST
I WAS severely mistaken... xD Got it right away. 12/12 neggs, 4/4 herrings, 16/16 clues, and minimum moves on the Petpet puzzle!
TJNT, you ROCK! This was freaking awesome :D
illusioniste - JN Staff, 04/11/2010, 11:31 am NST

yaksrock, 04/11/2010, 12:36 pm NST
Even though I've only managed to find 8 Neggs, this Hunt was ten times more fun than the last hunt I don't know if you'll be able to top it next year! (By the way, I hope Rosie gets some well-deserved rest for all this!)
sylviamcc, 04/11/2010, 12:36 pm NST
I still can't figure out Kata's clue. It should be on the page of the Disco Shoyru Groovy Bling but sadly it isn't. I have no idea where it is.

Did Dave come up with the safe puzzle? Because if he did, I say we stage a coup.
silver7, 04/11/2010, 1:03 pm NST
12/12 Neggs 4/4 Herrings and 1/1 AMAZING Time! Wow that was so much fun. I did it this year on a whim and started off with no idea what was going on. With some JN exploration, some nudges along the way and some great brain wracking puzzles it was so much fun.
I know it was a lot of work for the JN staff to make this hunt but I just wanted to say it was worth every second. Make more, they are amazing. You guys are amazing. ((And this plot was so much better than the past few plots TNT has put together.))
*Cookies, dung, neggs, sloth clones, whatever else you could ever want*

jazzeh, 04/11/2010, 2:14 pm NST
Um, what does Kata mean by "same first initial"?
illusioniste - JN Staff, 04/11/2010, 2:15 pm NST
@jazzeh: Your first initial is J.
If Jay-Z were here, you and he would be partnered up.
noil_lover25 - JN Staff, 04/11/2010, 2:15 pm NST
@illy - yeah that would be an interesting partnership...
zachkenobi, 04/11/2010, 2:26 pm NST
You guys should put ads on Jellyneo, just for next negg hunt. You'd pay for the whole year! So many page clicks...
blobikins, 04/11/2010, 2:33 pm NST
All I get is , which translates to SUPER SNORKLE!
Doesn't make sense... I Jellyneoed it and.. nothing! What did I do wrong?
c_t_elder, 04/11/2010, 2:41 pm NST
By the way, kudos to whoever came with the idea to hide Rosie's negg. I vote for that one to be the best clue/location :D

I'm so very ashamed of myself for not remembering about Torratz's clue. I was looking at Disco stuff
12/12 and 4/4 now, whoo. Thank you JN for giving me three different brain aneurysms and a really enjoyable time!
bigtintin, 04/11/2010, 3:05 pm NST
Finally 12 neggs! Thanks everyone at Jellyneo for a fun week, and especially thanks to all of you who don't seem to have slept this week and kept helping us out all along the way. Now I have to remember what I did in life before hunting for neggs.
illusioniste - JN Staff, 04/11/2010, 4:12 pm NST
Another hint for Kata's clue:
Kata needs a thing for his fing, yo.
lucille, 04/11/2010, 6:33 pm NST
I used to think all of the jellyneo staff members were only cartoons but after this close contact with so many of you I see now that you are more that a cartoon character...You are cartoon characters that can TALK or at least type. Luff you all and thank you for a wonderful negg hunt. I can't wait until my grandson is old enought to learn his way around JN!
tomatereloco, 04/11/2010, 6:47 pm NST
birdlover, you missed the BEST negg hunt lol... JN guys, THANK YOU lot for this negg hunt... it was worthy being isolated of the world for this week... you must teach neopets to do plots... if their plots were like yours, i would have continued playing neopets lol (Yes, i visit Jn, but not neopets)
tomatereloco, 04/11/2010, 6:59 pm NST
I an't go without repaeting it again lol... REALLY, please continue doing this type of hunts and plots throught out the year because this hunt really rocked... it was really difficult and you had to think hard... that was the best... and it really shoed much of your dedication and good thinking... JN guys, you are smart people indeed, no doubt... A PERFECT EVENT DONE BY GREAT PEOPLE. seriously, best plot i've ever done!!!
jellyjoy, 04/11/2010, 7:08 pm NST
@Nexy- Exactly. I had headdesked so hard that my head was bleeding when I solved the Safe.

itg_321, 04/11/2010, 8:08 pm NST
Well, I don't think I can think I can find Rosie's Negg, and I don't even wanna try and decode SciFi's. I already found 10 neggs, that's pretty decent. Thanks for the wonderful plot JN! If you guys did plots like these and made your own site, Neopets would lose lots of players.

I'm half-tempted to con someone into creating a jn account so I can take over and do the negg hunt all over again. The non-tempted half of me wants to smack me upside the head. I do want to do it again just to see how fast I can do it (since there are obvious restrainers like the wheel) and to see if I can remember how I did it. I find myself going blank D: but then I realize you'll post all the answers soon anyway.

[Hint for Sci's negg location]:
A sunny day in Joodlesville sent me on a shopping spree, I started out with a mootix bag and a mootix thing for keys.
Then to beat the heat I dove deep into the sea, came back up with coral cake and a honeyed horn of plenty.
The evening came much to quick, my final item I could not pick, I sat and stared with apathy at things from the ***** *******.

[About 'thinking outside the box']:
There is no box where Sci is concerned. Sci stomps on the box then uses it as a frisbee to get into the 5th dimension.
The Last Few Minutes...

I just want to say before I head off into turbo-procrastination-homework mode, I'm ecstatic that the Negg Hunt was well received as it was (even with all of the little glitches).
We had a great turn-out this year and we've received fabulous comments and feedback about this event that gets me very riled up about future events.
I want to give a gracious thanks to Nexy, Illy, noileh and Polemarch (and any other staffer) who were very dedicated to keeping the economy of advice and hints alive (and stabilized )
I hope everyone had a great time and didn't lose as much sleep playing it as we did planning it xD I wish you all the best of luck for these last 7 minutes!
