Well, soon, anyway.
We suggest you check back on Friday, June 7th. Let's say by the end of the day. You never know with these things, ya know? In the meantime, need some reading material
Is it going to be a few minutes or a few hours? I'm only asking because I'm trying to decide if I should stay up and wait or got o sleep.
This programmer has a hunch it's going to be at least an hour. If you're staying up late, you might want to sleep - the Hunt isn't going to disappear overnight.
later than a few minutes but sooner than a few hours
Bed it is. Can't wait for tomorrow (or later today)!!
guess I'll go cook dinner now then instead of impatiently refreshing JN
The suspense is murderous!!!!
...back ater sleep, but i'm moving out of my house today, and I stillhave stuff to pack xD Guess I need to get up and do that really...there's plenty of time tonight for neggs
I have to go to my school's summer fair for 6 hours so if you wanted to stay broken til after that I'd appreciate it!!
I have GOT to go to bed now. Oh well, maybe in a few hours.
dinner successfully cooked and eaten... in the absence of any negg hunt news, I guess I have time to play some AC games
What if we said this was all a dream~
What kind of dream is this?
... Sweet dream or a beautiful nightmare
OMG I hate you now I have Beyonce in my head

I am worried
Is it delayed or something?
It's like waiting for season 3 of Sherlock...
Yes, only we haven't gone even HALF as crazy as the Sherlock fandom has.
Yet... but that's true, I haven't seen any tuna
Secretly, it's already started and we're all waiting on nothing. <.>_<.>
The JN staff ARE sneaky like that...
Many familiar faces rounded here.
So, when does it start? D:
@flairina, Most likely, this is true.
@flairina: good idea, we'll do it next year o:
@flairina, I thought that for a moment a few hours ago, so I keep checking the services page on my account portal too
Unless we all got auto-signed-up
and to think I was worried about missing the start while I went to work
Negg Hunt Release Status:
I'm so happy
thought I was going to miss the start due to having to work today. So if you can delay it for another couple of hours I'll be ecstatic
C'mon! I woke up early so I could get a good start before I had to go do things today. What happened JN?
We really changed things up this year, so it's taking just a little longer... okay, longer... than expected. Still, getting very close. About to do some final hiding and a very quick staff test.
I can't get up... stuck on couch recovering... so desperate... NEEEEEEED... NEGGGGGSSSS... *insert zombie emoticon*
Not sure whether me seeing Kata's comment was a good thing or not... I had decided to go to bed if there wasn't any word from JN staff by 6:30am NST, so I guess now I'm staying up a little longer
Oh no, change... ME NO LIKE CHANGE
In all seriousness a new spin on things sounds interesting, but I wish it wasn't causing the delay. Still, we've waited this long so I suppose we can wait a bit longer.
, 06/8/2013, 6:36 am NST
At least TJNT updates us more regularly than TNT, or admits that there were snafus. This is why JN is superior.
Guess I will keep refreshing myself from last year until the first portal goes up.
Yeah, I do appreciate the updates we get here, unlike on Neo. Thanks JN Staff!
, 06/8/2013, 7:00 am NST
Morning all! Waking up the brain with some AC goodness so when the hunt starts I have my thinking cap right.
Can't complain too much about the delay... it's been a productive few hours for me on neo: dailies done, BD done, WCs done, 10 games of KQ done, and rapidly approaching the next rank in the AC
Solving bugs so you can actually get clues.
Oops, is that a spoiler saying there's clues still?
Still waiting xD I managed to move out of a house before it's live though, bonus xD
Well there BETTER still be clues or I'd be rather upset. Puzzling over those is the best part you know.
wonder how much longer I can manage to stay awake... SoSD is making me sleepy
Did it start yet?
@flairina: we still keep the process puzzle-clue-negg, just change... a bit
@treasure: Not yet it seems. I just finished reading through the past three years' worth of Negg Hunt. Two hours later and still no Negg Hunt '13.
Make ALL the staff work! (wish I could make the meme to go with this statement)
@alabamasax: that's good, at least you're prepared
I thought being Australian would be an advantage, and while most of you slept I'd be working away
Now the reverse has happened, and as you all wake up, I need to sleep. Curses!
I have some ideas of potential puzzles that have repeated the past few times. I do feel a little more prepared. I plan to claim that top spot this year. 10th place doesn't cut it.
YOU ARE NOT PREPARED
, 06/8/2013, 8:07 am NST
Some of the puzzles have proven a bit more buggy than we hoped. Clues are fixed now, but it's going to be at least 3 hours.
I am SO sorry. We want this released as much as you do.
Urgh. Then I won't be starting til later tonight. Oh well. I'm sure I will be able to catch up.
Thanks Kata, in that case since it's after 1am here I'm calling it a night. Hopefully (for your sake as well as ours) you won't unearth any more bugs after you get those puzzles sorted
Awww. Well, I do have all day and it's only lunchtime here, so I guess I'm not in much of a rush.
, 06/8/2013, 8:24 am NST
for future reference, you guys should stick to releasing the hunt with neo easter events instead of the ac or events that we need to play 24/7.
Darn, I have work in three hours. Y'all should just plan to release it like, tomorrow.
You know what we need?
Some haikus to help us wait.
Trust me, they're cure-alls.
3 hours won't kill us...though does 'at least' 3 hours mean it may not be out until the morning?
@xvickydoll I don't know what time it is for you right now, so I don't know when morning is. 'at least' means I would like to think 3 hours is enough, but you never know...
, 06/8/2013, 8:35 am NST
I think I will read over old solutions for inspiration since I have only participated in one hunt.
I woke up this morning like it was Christmas bahaha! I am so excited for it to start
Your honesty over the glitches is much appreciated. ^^ I hadn't planned to today but I guess I'm going to play some Yooyuball. Oh well. =P
Three hours of ennui
Awaiting the mammoth quest;
A maelström of Neggs
Now here we wait
We wait for neggs
We sit right here
And rest our legs
There's naught to do
But sit and rest
And though we know
It's for the best
We cannot help
But tap our feet
We're anxious, needy
Want the treat
The treat that is
The JN hunt
We're desperate now
So I'll be blunt
Please get it up
'Cause we need this!
We sit and wait
For negg hunt bliss
I TOO wrote a poem in anticipation. I'm too psyched to say nothing...
No, no, flairina
Haikus always trump sonnets;
Quoth Shakespeare, "Whatevs."
@flair: Is it bad I did that in an improvised sing-song style?
@kata UK, so right now it's 5pm
3 hours takes me up to the evening. Keeping my fingers crossed!
@alabama No, that was intentional so sing song is perfect.
Write a Haiku? Why?
I always think they're pointless.
Complete waste of time.
Frankly Haikus stink
I agree with Bandito
You grudge their grandeur,
These rightful regents of prose;
Haikus > everything.
Why do you dislike
These wonderful, amazing
Creatures called Haikus?
That has to be the
Best Haiku I have ever
Heard. I applaud you.
You're doin' it wrong.
"Full sentences make good haikus,"
A wise man once said.

Sigh. Waiting for at least 12 hours for the AWESOME negg hunt to begin. We all got trolled... anywho, I'm not doing altador cup anymore because this is WAY better!
That middle line had
Eight syllables, not seven...
I can't bear the shame.
...I think I should probably go.
@yaksrock: is this better? I'm paraphrasing your words though faintish.
Hippos are really
Irresponsible said no
one's fridge ever. 'K?
Yeah, I've honestly long since stopped caring about the AC. It's boring and incredibly repetitive. Hence I wait for this.
whoo when I asked you to wait til I got back from the fair I didn't think it would happen
I'm super excited to be here when it launches (sorry to everyone else who isn't so happy!)
I'm gonna stay awake around the clock so I can AC and Hunt
just can't stop myself going for all star even though AC is boring
gahhh i'm so sad it hasn't started yet but at least i didn't miss anything when i went to bed!!!
We had a wheely tough time getting one puzzle to behave, but that's out of the way. Getting much much closer!
30 minutes and counting.
To bad the hunt won't work on my IPad. At least I don't think it will.
so, lets amuse myself by reading the solutions for the past negg hunts and see if i can a: jog my memory b:make sense of it xD
:O Is Kata letting spoilers out? Either way, I'm anxious to start. Is the Negg Hunt flash based? I can't remember. I just want to start when it comes out but may have to wait until I get one later.
the portals are normally flash based aren't they
we have more than just flash this year
Is it going to be probably released in less than an hour?
@tomater kata said 3 hours ago that it would be about 3 hours more... so we should be getting some kind of close now
actually he said 'at least 3 hours...'
I want to do another 19 games of yball today so I don't mind a little bit more of a wait!!
Yup, we had a lot of trouble with one of the puzzles, but they've all been worked out. There's still one more puzzle that needs to go through testing, but we took care of the hardest ones first.
We've definitely allotted extra time to finish the hunt, since it wouldn't be fair otherwise. @_@
...so any time now then? aaaaaaa excited
I forgot to ask before too...will the portals be staggered again this year or do we get everything all at once? Or would that spoil us too much?
I really can't wait! If we've been waiting this long for the NH, you know it's gotta be great!
*Jeopardy theme starts playing*
@xvicky: kinda the same as last year, it gives the other hunters a chance to catch up
Now this is what you call suspense
, 06/8/2013, 12:07 pm NST
The suspense. The suspense. Exam results have nothing on this.
You know, the hunt hasn't even started yet I'm already scared of Dave's Safe v20.13.
Why did you have to bring that up?!?! I'm cringing already!
-died at the sound of the safe-
trying to block out the safe. Never gotten it since the first negg hunt xD
, 06/8/2013, 12:25 pm NST
Ugh, the safe. So many painful memories of me trying to solve it
That safe... it was so deceptively easy that one time... but I suffered over it for days... SAAAAAFEEE!!! *shakes fish*
lol I was remembering the pathway safe earlier which wasn't that hard - once you knew the trick, until you'd got it though it was unsolvable!!
, 06/8/2013, 12:30 pm NST
@daughters_ofthe_moon That safe puzzle made me feel stupid
@theprotectorjer was the safe the harest one you had to fix? xD
Safe is probably not in the first portal though it could be.
or maybe...there will be no safe?!?!?!?!?!
We can hope, right?
I just want the Hunt to go up before I have to go work...
Come on JNT! You can do it! *waits impenitently*
no safe??? ahahahahahahahahahahahaha
@con: er no, the other one
So, will there be a Where's Waldo type puzzle? That would be interesting...
, 06/8/2013, 12:42 pm NST
Oooh I like the cut of your jib hawkclaw.
@theprojecter: You've made it all a giant maze of safes haven't you...
, 06/8/2013, 12:43 pm NST
Oh my, the safe! I had blocked that part in my memory, somewhat like a trauma, like the content beast's lair. /shivers
As long as the maze isn't a moving one like last year's, I'll be okay with it, but if it's a giant maze of safes in which you're trying to find a needle in a haystack, well, I'm just going to go cry in a hole now...
Nearly there..... nearly theeeerre *crawls to fluffy bed*
, 06/8/2013, 12:46 pm NST
@myth_night Don't give them any ideas! D:
@scout: too late
@THEPRO So the text game thing was the hardest?
@rosie, you haven't slept at all????
@con: I'll spoil everything here if I keep answering so I'll just curl back to my bed and wait for Kata to add some final touches
i have to go to work soon :/ I just wanted to start the negg hunt
"Go go go Kata, you know what they say!
Go go go Kata, you'll make it someday!
Sha-la-la Kata, you're doing fine,
You and your coding ahead of your time!"
So, do we have another ETA? said the most impatient person...ever
i think im just as impatient as you vicky lol
... I certainly hope it's very soon. They said there are just a few tweaks left and it's just Kata.
c'mon jn! you can do it!!
I have literally been stalking these comments in anticipation of the upcoming hunt
Ode to Negg Hunt
You were once my one companion,
You were all that mattered.
You were once here right beside me,
Now my hopes are shattered.
Wishing you were somehow here again,
Wishing you were somehow near.
Sometimes it seemed, if I just dreamed,
Somehow you would be here!
(Yes, I know it's almost verbatim, but it worked so well, sorry...)
You guys are great for being so patient! (Or at least not pelting us with flaming coconuts.) *ducks*
We're working out one last snag, and then we just have to turn everything on (which takes all of like, 5 minutes).
*pelts with flaming coconuts*
Whoops. Sorry. xD
You guys get to have all the fun without us, I love fixing bugs
although in a case like this, I'm sure it's quite stressful... which is why you guys are kinda awesome for putting up with us and putting this on
*hides flaming coconuts*
No, seriously, who would pelt the lovely JN staff?
We do know you do all this for free, and if it's anything remotely as good as last years it 'll much better than anything on neopets.
So don't worry, I can wait another day or so :p
Jellyneo events, are way better then the Neopets events nowadays.
Figures that it'll probably start during the ONE time I'll be stepping out today. :p
, 06/8/2013, 1:51 pm NST
I'm so excited! This is going to be my very first JN Negg Hunt! JN staff, all of you are so awesome! I looked through previous Hunt solutions, and all of the Hunts looked so wonderful! Thank you so much for taking the time to plan and put on these Hunts! The wait is definitely worth it, because I know that this Hunt is going to be the best thing ever!
Kata, don't worry! We love everything you guys do and wouldn't dare pelt you!
, 06/8/2013, 1:52 pm NST
This will be my first JN Negg Hunt! OMG, I'm so excited! OMG! OMG! /random fangirling continues in background
Sure, I know just the thing, juggling flaming coconuts!
*trips and "accidentally" flings them in your general direction*
*catches the coconuts from colors and juggles them*
Now we play the waiting game
do i see grass?!
haha just kidding
although i wish i did! so close i can taste it!
*catches them, but trips and falls off the stage sending the coconuts at the staff*
Now 10pm...you know I'll be up all night?
The anticipation is killing me, I keep refreshing with anxiety. I can wait as long as you need us to, patience is something learned during the Negg Hunt itself. Long Live the NEGG HUNT!!!
We hope you all enjoyed the juggling act tonight, we'll be here all week! Although we may be a bit busy looking for lost neggs...
*takes a bow, and leaves stage*
I have to get ready for work..wahhh
, 06/8/2013, 2:08 pm NST
Bahaha me too, I keep refreshing every minute or so in case I miss an update.
I can't believe the amount of comments here. It's more than any news release I've seen.
I juggled the best colors. I deserve that bow.
*bows and falls of stage again*
@super just wait until we get into the actual hunt... the comments there have to constantly be deleted, they get so many XD
We can bow together then!
*bows with con, trips off the stage as well, into the lever that released all of the coconuts*
Many Puzzles wait
As the wait lengthens and goes
@superphun: wait until the hunt actually starts. Last year had approximately 21,000 comments according to the guide and usually they delete them from the news posts when they reach a couple of hundred during the hunts.
I was kinda ninjaed there XD
I meant to refresh, not to double post.
@super it's all very fun though, we usually have a random yet awesome time with each other's company
and now, we'll have the company of these guys too.
@myth *throws flaming coconuts at you, for lack of ninja stars*
Echoing the comments praising TJNT and their awesome site events! So much better than the TNT's events. Thank you for all your hard work!
comments during the hunt are also the best place to find sneaky hints..if you see them before deletion anyway
I have ninja stars, they're just invisible since they're ninjas themselves
That's like ninjaception right there :O
I always haunt the comments while hunting, xvickydoll is right you need to catch the clues that end up censored as they were to on point
Well I guess one of them is a pirate star since he didn't want to be in the family business but yeah, pretty much...
Oh gosh, does this mean we have to break out the crazy pirate boat again?
*dons pirate hat*
Yes... yes it does. *grabs a cutlass and eyepatch*
I've decided my impatience is too much. i'm out all day tomorrow and I've still not unpacked all of my stuff from moving house today xD
Then let us sail with insanity onwards, into the sunset!
Or negg hunt. Or both, I think they're in the same general direction. 5 miles west of somewhere
Or perhaps they're both 5 miles west of everywhere.
Hmm.... that may be right. And we can't check the map... because who needs a map when you're crazy?
I know, let just stop and get a socko for a makeshift parrot! Maybe we'll find where our friend from last year left off in the text adventure!
We're now just moments away from releasing. Just updating some wording and then we'll put up a newspost and you'll be able to start the hunt.
Sure. After we find them we should all stop for pirate/ninja/text based pancakes

Ohh, I enjoy pancakes
We'll just have an entire nice brunchinner on the boat to celebrate the release of the hunt, which is apparently moments away!

May the odds be ever in your favor!
