Any readers of the LA Times who do the daily crossword (but sadly not earning any NP for it) may have noticed a Neopets-related clue in Sunday, July 16th's edition!

33 Down had the clue, "Virtual human companion", the answer to which was none other than "NEOPET"!

Another Scrappy Neoboard Appearance
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on July 18, 2017, 9:25 pm NST

Scrappy has made another appearance on the Neoboards! This time with some information on the return of the Caption Contest, the Battledome, and the upcoming plot she keeps hinting at.

Regarding the Caption Contest...

Well, we released it and put it in the news that day! As for the releasing, we got a few thousand in the first day alone so we thought we would try this instead of releasing a bunch at once. It would allow for more captions to get seen rather than a few at the end. However, since some captions will have more time to be voted on than others I'm not sure that this is how we will keep it.

Also guys I was thinking about a new avatar for the Caption Contest. Would that be crazy?

Here, Scrappy confirms that the avatar will be released as a prize for the current contest that went live yesterday:

Okay here's what I'm thinking stick with the old one for this contest and then new one for the rest and like someone suggested, the old for every 1000th [sic].

Regarding the plot...
In response to someone asking to confirm if the plot would happen before the holidays this year:

I can't spoil the plot but I can tell you plans haven't changed (well, other than some improvements).

A longgggg time we've been planning this!

Regarding the HP increase for the Battledome...
It appears to not be on the current to-do list, and TNT does not seem to have plans to implement it for the upcoming plot:

5. The HP increase is something we've looked into but I'm not sure it's the direction we will go in with BD.

Also, I in no way said the increase is coming back. Actually, I think I said the opposite. I can't say its 100% never coming back but right now it's not.

Don't get me wrong, folks. It's not like we're giving up on BD. We have plans, they just are different than HP increase. Just give it some time!!

Regarding other site features...

1st, I would love to bring back random contest its so fun! ... 4. Eh, not sure about the site spotlight yet.

Honestly, we've been talking about and looking at so many things we haven't really discussed World Challenges so I don't know about that one.

Another Free NC Mall Birthday Cupcake
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on July 19, 2017, 10:04 am NST

To celebrate the NC Mall's 10th birthday, today you can pick up a third free cupcake!

Although this is a food item, it functions like a capsule or gift bag - when you feed it to your pet, you'll get the following item:

The pet you fed the cupcake to will also gain +2 strength. Because this is an NC freebie - you can collect this on sides, however, it is No Trade and you may not move the cupcake to your main account. You may also not move Neopets to your other accounts to consume the cupcake.

Caption Contest Rules Clarification
  • Posted by Chesu
  • Posted on July 22, 2017, 9:01 am NST

In the latest edition of The Neopian Times editorial, clarification was given on the new rules for the Caption Contest.

Caption Contest round 1400 is accepting entries until noon on July 23, and voting will remain open throughout the month of July. Future contests will follow this "one week to enter, one month to vote" format. The Caption Contest - Funny avatar will be available for both rounds 1400 and 1401.

New rules have been implemented regarding advertising your entry. On the Neoboards, you may only link to your entry in your signature. Creating a post just to advertise your entry will be considered a freezable offense.

TNT staff member Scrappy also appeared on Charter, the Neopets Premium-exclusive board, to answer a few more questions regarding new policies. Advertising your entry on third-party sites such as Facebook or Jellyneo is also frowned upon, and action may be taken if a member of staff sees it happening. While multiple captions from the same user have made it into the contest this time around, there will be a strict limit of one entry per person going forward. As in the past, the twenty-five entries with the most votes will be awarded the avatar.

Finally, TNT is hoping to hold contests in the future that will allow user-created art to appear in the Caption Contest, similar to what they did with the final Random Contest.

Plot Launch Month Confirmed - November
  • Posted by Herdy
  • Posted on July 28, 2017, 1:18 pm NST

Today's editorial contained another plot related question:

(hands Scrappy a double cheeseburger with all the trimmings and a root beer float) Thought you might like something more filling than sweets :). Anymore hints on upcoming plot? Even the tiniest morsel would be deeply appreciated sweetie! Pretty, pretty please (slips double chocolate peanut butter cup to her under the table)?~keeper_of_the_dunes
A burger, for me? Aw, I couldn't accept this... *scarfs burger in one bite* well anyways. Hm, all I have to say is between collecting all the awesome new stuff and celebrating the awesomeness of it. You guys will surely be happy!

Scrappy later confirmed on the Neoboards that between collecting and celebrating was a clue to the launch date of the plot - specifically between the Month of Collecting (October) and the Month of Celebrating (December). This means that the plot is due to launch in the Month of Storing (November).

But if that feels like a long time away, have no fear! Scrappy also mentioned on the boards that there would be a 'special event' earlier than that. Though she gave no details as to what it would be or when.
