Scrappy Q & A
  • Posted by Herdy
  • Posted on June 24, 2017, 3:37 pm NST

Scrappy has held an impromptu Q&A session on the Altador Cup neoboards this morning!



She primarily answered questions clarifying the standings, and other areas of the Cup:

The Standings have remained the same however the current final round brackets are updated daily to show results! Those are only Final Round results though and not indicative of the all around Final Results.
So yes can move up/down in the Final Round scores. That does not mean they will remain in that position in the Final Score.


Sorry, I cannot tell you guys the exact formula used because then you'd all know exactly who will win and its more fun to wait until the end :)


Thats so sweet I seriously love all of you guys! You're all awesome and everyones a winner in my book :)

The main page standings show the Bracket standings and will therefore change with your bracket but do not reflect the final score.


So the Final Round and Round Robin are weighted against each other. And no I cannot tell you the weights but they each play a part.


The only things I can tell you about the jumps in brackets is that they are determined based on the results so they will continually be updated. Anyone that does well will move up and vice versa. These are all fairly done, no one will get moved up if they don't deserve to.


Okay quick message for the flagged users. I have no say in who is flagged/unflagged so don't ask me to unflag you. Yes we are still going through some users but many who were flag were fairly done so. I'm sorry if it upsets you guys but we just want to keep AC fair for everyone.


YES every match matters!!

Also there's so many questions here I'm bound to miss some so please don't get mad if I don't answer!

So only the brackets will changes. The list of standings from the Round Robin will not change until the end.


So, no flagging users is not my role. I can tell you anyone that was caught cheating got flagged. I know that it's very frustrating but I really don't have much else to say.


Another shoutout to all those flagged users out there: There are still people getting unflagged so just hold out a little longer!

Also, people that are flagged will earn the rank of the time they were flagged. So they will be able to get prizes from the Prize Shop.


We will unflag people as soon as we can but things are crazy hectic so bare with us, folks.


No it is not just participation. Obviously, the wins/losses matter as well!

Yes the scoring is fair, guys!! Not allowing anyone to move up wouldn't be fair. Just gonna throw this out there, if you're winning then you probably don't have much to worry about so just do the best you can and win for your team because nothing will help more than that!


Fav Team: Roo Island
Fav Player: Scrappy, obviously.


In reply to the idea of a temporary warning 'penalty box' instead of flagging:

I like the penalty box idea...i'll bring it up to the team!!


Neomailing me or editorial will definitely get your ideas heard. So, either one of those is probably best!


I can listen to ideas for next year but no guarantees!!

Also you needed to make a team each round to get scores for the Staff Tournament. So that could be a reason you only got two.


She also eventually went off topic to answer a few other questions - such as the often referenced rules update:

So we are working on a full and complete rule book which we are going to get you guys as soon as we can so everything we be stated much more openly and clearly.


There was further hinting about the future of Keyquest:

@cinders_lair I literally just laughed that's so funny. I am working on some things I will have further answers to the future of Key Quest in a little bit. Just be a littleeee more patient please!


Again, possible changes to usernames were mentioned:

About the usernames getting implemented question, I have heard about this a couple of times so I can look into it to see if there's anything we can do but that's about the best I can give you right now.


About whether all editorial questions are seen, and if ideas can be sent in as NT articles:

Yes, all editorial questions get seen and taken into consideration even if I can't answer them!

Articles idea are ok (tentative okay), they should definitely be kept more positive than negative though.


And mentioning the possibility of more pet slots:

Just a heads up, the pet slot idea is well known! I love it too and will work on that!


And perhaps most importantly, Scrappy dropped the P word - PLOT. It's unclear if she is hinting at the same content that Country Queen previously mentioned as an event, or if it is a distinct project:

Yup there's a new plot coming...


When I say plot I mean plot. I can't give you details because I'm really not sure if I'm allowed and don't want to get in trouble but come on guys. What would a plot be if we couldn't fight off some bad guys?


I'd like to keep this as AC focused as we can but you know, I love a good spoiler or two so I had to throw that out there about the plot. :D

Also I want to give a shout out to all the kind words people are saying here! You guys are amazing


She signed off by saying she intends to do this sort of thing more often, as well!

Okay guys I feel like most of the AC related questions have been answered and we're getting a little off topic here.

I have LOVED talking to you guys and I promise I am going to try to do this wayyy more often for any and all questions you guys have.

However, at the moment I have a real life obligation (ugh hate those) so I gotta sign off in a few. So any final questions you have, ask now!


While it is certainly true that the majority of Scrappy's answers had previously been given through the editorial or other sources - this is a major step forward in terms of site communication. If Scrappy (or, indeed, other staff members) do more Q&As in the future, we'll keep you informed!

  • Posted by Rylon
  • Posted on June 29, 2017, 2:20 pm NST

It's been a busy month for most of us, with the return of the Altador Cup! There were also five pet days and two theme days to keep us otherwise occupied!


Jubjub: Popstar | Quiggle: Baron
Nimmo: Goddess | Kau: Trickster | Acara: Deadly


With the Altador Cup in full force, wearables in the news were a little scarce.


The Altador Cup's NC portion, Homes of the Altador Cup Heroes, awarded participants daily goodies!






The new Summer Sunset Mystery Capsule was released, granting a range of new wearables!




Several new items were released on general sale at the NC Mall.


And as always, rounding out the month are the collectibles!


We still need a lot of these item previews for our Wardrobe App, so please head on over to our Modeling Department if you can lend a hand! Your help and support ensures Wardrobe is up to date, and we really appreciate all your hard work! :D

Photobucket Accounts Disabling Hotlinking
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on June 30, 2017, 10:31 am NST


This is just a friendly public service announcement for anyone who uses Photobucket as an image hosting service, particularly for your Petpage or Lookup images.

Photobucket is shutting down hotlinking (which means allowing you to use images on other websites, like neopets.com) unless you choose to use one of their paid account options. It seems like right now, high-usage users are being affected the most.


If you use Photobucket and would like to continue to use the images on Neopets, we highly recommend that you download a full backup of all images in your account and consider re-hosting them using a different image hosting service such as Imgur. Or, if you'd like, pay for an account upgrade to continue using their services.

... In the meantime, check out our post below about Altador Cup XII prizes! The prize shop is live and ready for you to redeem your points!
