August Freebies
  • Posted by Nynex
  • Posted on August 1, 2010, 12:00 am NST

Mmmm, free food! It's August, so time to collect your monthly freebies of random food and 2,000 NP!

jnSafety Team Alert: Neopets is on alert once again with more scammed accounts. These can take place in user shops, Neomail or on the Neoboards. You need to be careful of any links or suspicious content present on any of these pages. A common scam is a cheaply priced codestone. The price may lure you in, but you will quickly find out that it was just a scam. Review our Neopets Account Safety Guide to find more tips and tricks to keep your account safe. If you ever find yourself in this situation and need some advice, you can join the discussions on our Frozen Account forum. And remember, when submitting a support ticket to TNT, only submit once and wait for a response. Sending in multiple tickets only creates a backlog and it will take longer for them to sort out your account problems.

Emotions and Wearables Searching: You may have noticed the links at the bottom of each news post. We are still collecting pet emotions and we need your help. Every species has been added to the emotions needed list. If you have any of the Neopet/colour combos we need, please send in a bug report with the pet name! :) We are also looking for a number of wearable items to be modeled. Please check our wearables needed list each week to see if you can help us out. The sooner we get these completed, the faster we can release new projects for you to enjoy. :D

Estimated Values and Neohomes Item Previews: Our Item Database staff are hard at work compiling a list of the Estimated Values of all the rarity 99 and rarity 100 items. These items will be classified in your SDB as Super Rare and Ultra Rare. If you think you may have the information we are looking for, head over to this forum topic. We also need previews of Neohomes 2.0 Items. We have a list of about 400 more items that need previews for our Item Database. Please see this forum topic for a list and details on the items we need.

Bonju Mania: Some of you have been waiting all year to obtain this avatar! All month long, the Blumaroo - Chef Bonju avatar will be available. Mix Gourmet Cooking For Your Pet, Blumaroo Steak, and an Orange Juice at The Cooking Pot, while using the Mad About Orange avatar.

You can also help contribute to the Project Wishing Well, by telling us what you have tried, or theories that might uncover the mystery of the Wishing Well avatar.

We have some fun things and new features planned for this month, so keep checking back for details on our next release. :D

August NC Mall Collectible - Prince Jazan

Jubjub Power Bounce: A whole new batch of prizes have been released for you to collect.

The August NC Mall Royal Treatment collectible features Prince Jazan and is now available in the NC Mall. This item will only be available in the NC Mall during the month of August!

Database Hiccup: If you noticed that brief stint of parts of JN being down, don't be alarmed. Some Meepits decided to invade our databases and caused all sorts of havoc. No data was lost, but they chewed up some wires and connectivity was lost. All should be back to normal now, including your jnAccounts. :)
