Faerie Festival Avatar

UPDATE: The avatar appears to be fixed now!

The Faerie Festival avatar is now released!

You can claim it at the main Faerie Festival page. At present, it seems it is intended to be the bonus for visiting the festival each day, but may be glitched - some users who have visited each day are not being awarded it.

It is glitched or something. I visited every day and did not receive the avatar upon visiting this night/morning.

herdy - JN Staff, 09/26/2017, 12:10 am NST
It also appears it was made available before midnight for some, so something odd is going on with it.

draakonikihv, 09/26/2017, 12:15 am NST
yeah, no avatar for me either

sky15919, 09/26/2017, 12:16 am NST
I visited every day but did not receive it

purplebin, 09/26/2017, 12:18 am NST
I knew getting here this early was a mistake...
I'm usually fast asleep now, but I woke up with a coughing fit and thought it was a perfect time to check!

majacal, 09/26/2017, 12:23 am NST
Yep, I visited every day, and did not receive it.

ducky - JN Staff, 09/26/2017, 12:28 am NST
I visited every day and got it, hubby did not :p

"I dont' care for avvies" and yet he was annoyed.

..also the white line is still there.

cat, 09/26/2017, 1:08 am NST
I didn't receive it either and I'm pretty sure I visited daily too.

ducky - JN Staff, 09/26/2017, 2:11 am NST
It's awarding the avvie now.

don92, 09/26/2017, 2:13 am NST
Finally got it after waiting a few hours. I checked multiple times before.

naime, 09/26/2017, 2:16 am NST
I think you need to visit the news page and then go to the festival page.

majacal, 09/26/2017, 3:18 am NST
I went back and received it. Yay.

kat, 09/26/2017, 3:51 am NST
i dunno i thought i visited everyday but there was one day there that i worked so i cant say for sure that i visited everyday. Alrighty i guess its back to my hiatus xD and i came back for nothing

nightshadeswiftswing, 09/26/2017, 4:49 am NST
Ugh I just kept forgetting to go everyday.

Also did the faerie type for Wing It ever change from an earth faerie, or is the first time we've seen a dark faerie?

sweetviolet86, 09/26/2017, 4:50 am NST
I missed a day and still got it... although I did win Wing It twice so maybe that helped?

hprox, 09/26/2017, 5:28 am NST
nightshadeswiftswing: I think it was random. I got Dark and Earth faeries about equally.

wikijason, 09/26/2017, 5:37 am NST
I know for a fact that I did not visit every day and I still got it.

cay, 09/26/2017, 5:38 am NST
You gave me hope, @sweetviolet86. I missed a day too, and I really love the avatar Either way, I'm all ready for whatever will come next ^_^"

marc, 09/26/2017, 7:37 am NST
There was never even a notice/event for coming to that page every day? like in the past faerie festivals.. at least there was a message saying thanks for coming and a prize.. but for this? Nothing that I ever saw. What a lame av/method.. And I got the av.

novelista, 09/26/2017, 8:15 am NST
If I had known it was a thing, I would've made an effort to visit every day.

slipperyghost, 09/26/2017, 8:49 am NST
My guess it is more a random visual-thing indicating you saw the dark figure mentioned in the news, since it is in the avatar? Would explain why some people aren't getting it and some got it spite not visiting every day or before midnight even?
Hopefully there is a different prize for visiting as I have not gotten the avatar yet.

dolchay, 09/26/2017, 8:49 am NST
im still waiting to get it.

I know for a fact i visited each day

puffkins2000, 09/26/2017, 9:08 am NST
Is it just me... or was there not a Faerie statue there before? At the festival, I mean. I could have just not noticed every day I went.

cay, 09/26/2017, 9:50 am NST
I noticed that too about the Faerie statue, but I am unsure if she was there beforw... poor Faerie!

tyuio_k50, 09/26/2017, 10:00 am NST
The Faerie Statue has been there since day 1, it's a prop that was in the reused background from the last Faerie festival too. It's just decor.

itaxerxes, 09/26/2017, 10:20 am NST
It's not fixed yet. I visited every day and didn't get it. I refreshed and checked my avatars, nothing

atryeu, 09/26/2017, 10:59 am NST

"There was never even a notice/event for coming to that page every day?"

Yes there was. The very first day I visited, there was a little pop up from Fyora saying welcome and to visit it daily for a reward at the end. I never saw the message again, or anywhere else that I remember though.

blu, 09/26/2017, 11:15 am NST
Great, gonna be salty over another ugly avatar I missed despite being active for the entirety of the event.

nitro_buster, 09/26/2017, 11:50 am NST
"Yes! Queen Fyora has a special gift planned for daily visitors to the Festival. Do drop in at least once a day to earn this one!"

It's in the FAQ, sooooo....

dolchay, 09/26/2017, 12:09 pm NST
Hope tnt sheds some light on this soon

theres a lot of people that should have gotten it but didnt including myself who visited the festival every day

slipperyghost, 09/26/2017, 12:15 pm NST
TNT never said the avatar would be the special gift, it might not be.

So far it looks random to me.

dolchay, 09/26/2017, 1:04 pm NST
Im almost wondering if the people that got the avatar werent suppose to, like it accidently got leaked where only some got it and others didnt i mean it would make sense.

look what happened during the winter charity corner thing where the fall one was accidently awarded

I think that maybe the avatar for the festival was accidently released and we arent suppose to get it til tomorrow perhaps

sketch, 09/26/2017, 4:35 pm NST
New MME!! :o

adventurer262, 09/26/2017, 4:53 pm NST
Funny, I missed a day or two, but still got it. So confused!

cat, 09/26/2017, 5:09 pm NST
Thanks, I rechecked the Faerie Festival page and got my avatar!

cat, 09/26/2017, 5:10 pm NST
Ooh, looks like a spooky haunted house MME.

ladyamethyst, 09/26/2017, 5:18 pm NST
Logged into my side for the 1st time in a while, went to the Festival, got this message:

"Welcome to the Faerie Festival!
It's so nice to have so many visitors. Feel free to look around and drop in at any stall. Daily visitors to the festival have a special surprise too!"

Looks like we really have to pay close attention now to FAQs & news.

josie, 09/26/2017, 6:05 pm NST
I hope the people who are supposed to get it and didn't will eventually receive it. Makes me really sad for them

This reminds me of the Negg Festival where Topsi made his/her first appearance. The negg meter they had back then was glitched and got stuck, and many people didn't receive the avatar for that one either, even though they went and collected their neggs every day.

morganjoisle, 09/26/2017, 8:40 pm NST
Thankfully I got it!

morganjoisle, 09/26/2017, 8:41 pm NST
I have visited Wing It each day along with the main faerie festival page, and played the Wheel of Excitement at least a few times, so maybe that made a difference?

dolchay, 09/26/2017, 8:48 pm NST
it doesnt matter what you do at the festival just that you go to the festival page.

spabl, 09/27/2017, 12:06 am NST


marfbear, 09/27/2017, 12:09 am NST
Wow! New theme surprised me. Had to run to the festival page and was surprised again - yay!

dolchay, 09/27/2017, 12:45 am NST
Plot isn't suppose to be til november

this is probably the event scrappy hinted at that we would get before the plot

cay, 09/27/2017, 1:35 am NST
Either way, this site theme is amazing. I love collecting site themes.

morganjoisle, 09/27/2017, 1:44 am NST
Omg this new site theme!!! (If it's an old one I never have it active.) http://www.neopets.com/faeriefestival/ EEEEEE LONG LIVE XANDRA!!! Quick, while the faeries are gone, we must use our combined might to free our beloved plot character who is cool because she is a villain and this is neopets and neopets loves rewarding thieves and stuff (such as Kanrik, Nabile, and Hanso)! EEEEEEE EVENT OF SOME SORT OR PLOT!!!!!! EEEEEEE!!!!!

43456, 09/27/2017, 2:12 am NST
I haven't gotten the avatar yet. I thought I visited every day? But I read some people who didn't visit daily also got an avvie... this is weird :/

aimierre, 09/27/2017, 5:14 am NST
I still have not received the avatar and am quite confused.

marc, 09/27/2017, 5:47 am NST
Why so much neon blue borders.. Otherwise, the new theme is really nice.

purplebin, 09/27/2017, 6:17 am NST
I was just on a side account where I use the Jumpstart theme, and realized that the Wraith one is the same but with a different overlay at the top and bottom. It even loads the same, with a flash of yellow underneath at the beginning.

And I guess the Wing It game is NOT a daily thing, now...

marc, 09/27/2017, 6:26 am NST
@purplebin, I noticed that too.. maybe it will change after the event begins/end? Idk.. you never know with this team.

tomatereloco, 09/27/2017, 6:43 am NST
I got frozen. today. please kill me

zafie, 09/27/2017, 7:41 am NST
I never got the avatar either even though I'm pretty sure I visited the festival everyday... But happy about the site theme and the new plot!

fennox, 09/27/2017, 1:40 pm NST
Drat - I missed it and I visited every day... oh well. Looking forward to the plot

43456, 09/28/2017, 11:08 pm NST
I sent in a ticket about the avatar. Rico S replied that you only get the avatar when you visited the event page daily. Then why did people who are certain they missed 1 or 2 days get the avatar and not me? I'm pretty sure I visited daily.

recklesse, 09/29/2017, 12:42 am NST
Rico S replied that you only get the avatar when you visited the event page daily.

That must be how it's meant to work then.

Anybody that visited every day and didn't get it, and those who didn't visit daily but still got it, are obviously affected by a glitch (or a bad memory).

This is the reason those counters were added for earlier events, so people could check their eligibility for these rewards for 'daily' activity. It would have been useful for this one, especially since the news wasn't posted on the first day.

dolchay, 09/29/2017, 10:58 am NST
i would def submit it to the editorial cause something is wrong somewhere still
