Good news, Neopians -- the Caption Contest has returned with a new round! As this is a hundredth round, hopefully the avatar will still be awarded!

Oh my Goddess! That poor kiko!

gordy_777, 07/17/2017, 1:56 pm NST
Uh... wow.

And to think that I just noticed the "Neofriends" widget was working again. Is this a sign of more palatable things to come?

dustin, 07/17/2017, 2:05 pm NST
JumpStart fixing things...

saiphami, 07/17/2017, 2:18 pm NST
Where does it show that it's a hundredth round? I was seeing it as 1396th... /confused

dave - JN Staff, 07/17/2017, 2:24 pm NST
@saiphami: The image URL is http://images.neopets.com/caption/caption_1400.gif for the caption above. We'll have to see if it's truly the 1400th or not. Better safe than sorry, though, since an avatar is on the line.

purplebin, 07/17/2017, 2:34 pm NST
I'm a bit confused about the schedule, and how long we have to submit an entry before the voting round. It just says winners are announced on August 1st.
And on the past winners page they left it at 1395, so it's odd that this would be 1400.

hprox, 07/17/2017, 3:25 pm NST
^agreed with purplebin. I hope they clarify things in the news. Some people on the neoboards are even wondering if we the users are voting or if JTNT is now judging.

Either way, I am glad that JTNT is starting to fix things. I know that they did that survey a few years ago and the results supposedly were that people wanted them to focus on new content rather than fixing old stuff but I feel like a lot of those users were transitory. Most of us longer-time players want the old stuff fixed.

morganjoisle, 07/17/2017, 3:38 pm NST
Ummm how come we skipped rounds 1397, 1398, and 1399?

pikachu315111, 07/17/2017, 3:52 pm NST
@ morganjoisle:
Maybe they want to start "fresh" by rounding up to the nearest 100th. Of course there was nothing stopping them from just making Caption Contest #1397 a special one where winners would be rewarded the Avatar, but whatever. I'm just glad it's back.

peppermint, 07/17/2017, 3:57 pm NST
I submitted 4 captions, unfortunately they were funny, so they'll never be chosen.

dr_tomoe, 07/17/2017, 4:00 pm NST
Oh wow, my favorite contest returns after years of absence.

minerra, 07/17/2017, 4:35 pm NST
TNT has been making some progress over the last couple weeks.

topaz644, 07/17/2017, 4:59 pm NST
I have faith that they wouldn't have named the image 1400 if they didn't want to make it special. I just hope the avie script (?) knows it's 1400.

Even if it messes up it shouldn't be too hard for them to award 25 people. *hopes*

jawsch, 07/17/2017, 5:08 pm NST
Omg the one avatar I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED

topaz644, 07/17/2017, 5:36 pm NST
I agree with peppermint. Of the 6 captions I've submitted so far there is one I still chuckle over with every re-reading. Guaranteed it wont get in

Then again new people with perhaps less knowledge of canon but more willing to look for wit.

josie, 07/17/2017, 5:36 pm NST
I'm so glad this contest is back! And I'm even more glad that the staff is now fixing more things

marc, 07/17/2017, 5:58 pm NST
Hmm you can vote on captions before it has even been announced in the news?? Why is that?

I am NOT glad they are bringing things back half way or messed up.

topaz644, 07/17/2017, 6:09 pm NST
@marc No voting is going on yet, it's just time to enter your captions.

topaz644, 07/17/2017, 6:44 pm NST
Oh Wait What? Captions are there for voting like marc said?? What the?

purplebin, 07/17/2017, 6:55 pm NST
Does this mean that no more will go up for voting?
I entered 8 before they showed up, but of course none got in.

jawsch, 07/17/2017, 6:55 pm NST
Hmm, I got in O_O

Now I needs to WIN so i can haz last grundo avatar I need

topaz644, 07/17/2017, 7:00 pm NST
35 show

All entries should show up if this is the way of it now.

peirigill - JN Staff, 07/17/2017, 7:02 pm NST
Good news: I'm in!
Bad news: I'm in twice. I hope I don't split my own votes!

dr_tomoe, 07/17/2017, 9:57 pm NST
Wow, that was fast for entries to go up :O

morganjoisle, 07/17/2017, 10:13 pm NST
@peirigill: I love your impression of Faerieland one.

dogslover123, 07/17/2017, 11:04 pm NST
Cool, but i didn't remember that it was going to be an avy round, weird :o

dr_tomoe, 07/18/2017, 12:24 am NST
Wow, that was quick :O

ducky - JN Staff, 07/18/2017, 2:54 am NST
Well this worked well for my timezone...

swevin, 07/18/2017, 7:28 am NST

marc, 07/18/2017, 7:33 am NST
It's almost like they don't know what they are doing.. Oh, wait.

purplebin, 07/18/2017, 8:26 am NST
I expected to be disappointed, but not so quickly.

tanoshii, 07/18/2017, 1:57 pm NST
5 people getting in twice is just silly. I don't blame the users, but don't they have something that checks if a user has already been picked?
Or is this going to be like those times stolen graphics win userlookup spotlight.

cat, 07/18/2017, 2:15 pm NST
I think they removed the duplicate entries because I don't see them.

swevin, 07/18/2017, 2:20 pm NST
Duplicates are still there. No offense to those who had that happen. Had it myself back in the days. Shame on TNT though for how this was handled. Bad doesn't even begin to describe it.

swevin, 07/18/2017, 2:21 pm NST
@Ducky. Indeed!

will, 07/18/2017, 3:27 pm NST
Well this WAS one of my favorite contests and I WAS excited. Then they pulled this....

purplebin, 07/18/2017, 9:03 pm NST
A few more have been added!
I wonder if they will continue to add even more.
They have a long way to go to catch up on the votes.

destroyer_feepit, 07/18/2017, 9:10 pm NST
this isnt 1400 cc, its 1396 or 1397 :/
