Stephen's Double Catch
Published: August 30, 2008

There was only one catch and that was Catch-22.

So, I was at a conundrum... I have some stalkers. I can avoid my stalkers, and they will hunt me more, or answer some of their questions, and give them help hunting me more. So, I braved an editorial for you. It was a Catch. The Best Catch. Catch-44. Two times worse than Catch-22.

Hey JN, I was just wondering if you knew why TNT has made it so the Esophagor asks for items worth outrageous prices? ~ flor2990
The Esophagor asks for random spooky food items (normally). These stay high in price because the Esophagor keeps eating them! Mean old chap, right? It is always a gamble doing quests, because sometimes the prize is better than what you spend. (But more often than not, the prize isn't so great.)

hi!!!! who here is a fan of jonas brothers?,,,... well i am... and will you pls send me a pic of stephen....plsss.. ~ keith_colin
Well, I asked five other staffers, and three said no. The other two gave me the Meepit Eye. And if you want to see me, then try using the "Jellyneo Staff" theme on the new layout. I am the dashing fellow in a red sweater near the bottom. What? You aren't using the New Layout yet?

When you search the item database and make it arrange them by the price, why can't it show the unpriced things too, so you could see what is priced and what is not. ~ paroni_dante
We do not show un-priced items because it would take up, most often, most of your search. A fraction of Neopian Items have been priced, so you can sometimes, depending on your search, go through several pages before getting to priced items, which makes it difficult for people who just want the prices.

On the upside, we do have some plans of programming in some more tools for Neopians like you to help us price items even easier so that a majority of the items in our database will have a price.

Bag of Neopoints
Money money money! It is all about money!

Hey Stephen! Is it really true that you used to make graphics for Jellyneo, back in the day? Is any of your work from back then still around? ~ Ally
Yep, it is true. Dave hired me to do Graphics. Then I learned to code and began helping him with his projects pretty soon after I was hired. The only thing I made is the Ghost Theme on the old layout. I always did a better job coding and helping with the CSS stylesheets.

Ghost Arkmite
The Ghost Theme is Scary!

Hi!!! stephen... i think i love you do you love me?... pls...say yes.. ~ keith_colin
Uhh, this is creepy.

Why does Dave cheat on all of your contests? Is he really that obsessed with getting a green trophy? ~ jordans_sa
We aren't sure. I think it is just a big ego. Though, you are asking the other staff cheater...

im crazy or you stephen... STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN STEPHEN i work hard for it,,,it has no copy/paste.. you like it?-this is my question luv yah stephen... ~ keith_colin
Who are you?

P.S:i love you stephen... muwahhhh... ~ keith_colin
The Stephen is alright, though he is slightly creeped out. Well, Stephen loves Green, Lost, Spaghetti, Coding, Smarts...

Didn't I already answer a question from you?

Hi Stephen! I am a long time Jellyneo browser, and enjoy looking at the editorial often. I saw last weeks question about your pets weight, and got me thinking(OH NOES!!)about how weight effects your neopet. Can you explain this to me, o legendary Stephen? Oh, and I decided to go on hiatus from Neo, so any neomails won't be read, if you plan on neomailing me. *nod nod* Thanks! ~ altaria11862
The only area pets weight is influential is in how fast your Neopet gets hungry. The heavier your Neopet is, the more often it will wish to eat. This can be helpful if you are Negg Training (Raising stats by feeding your Neopets lots of Neggs at a time). Certain items even increase your Neopet's weight, like the BBQ Porkwich.

BBQ Porkwich
You are far from dieting with the BBQ Porkwich!

Do certain abilities boost certain items. For example, I have a creeping shadows hammer, if I use the ability nighttime would the hammer do more damage? ~ superbaseball9
To my knowledge, there are no boosts for using items with abilities. The Battle Dome simply works that you get the effect from Nighttime, and then you get the damage from Creeping Shadows Hammer.

Creeping Shadow Hammar
Boo-hoo, sad day.

stephen you have a yahoo messenger? can we chat?... pls.... ~ keith_colin
No.

What does the Mega Power Plusshroom do? You didn't tell me! ~ pikapika_2_2_2
Ohh, Mushrooms, how fun! How did you know you could normally find me in the Mushroom Garden? Anyways, it raised your pets stats, though I am not sure which ones, probably level and Health Point. Maybe even strength. However, I wouldn't try using it since it is now retired and worth more as a collectible.

Mega Power Plusshroom
I am valuable mold! And Granny said I wouldn't amount to anything.

Hi stephen! I luv u, and i was wondering if you'd go out with me? ~ Stephen's Future Girlfriend
Sorry, miss, but I am hanging with Jen now.

Tonic
Everyone needs some Jen and Tonic!

Who are you?

If I get a krawk petpet from the petpet lab ray, can I go to the fungus cave and have it turn into a krawk pet? ~ korinu8
Sadly, no.

Neopets already gave an answer for this in Editorial 347 of the Neopian Times:

Hiya TNT! *Is polite and hands you a cookie* Why can't zapped Krawk Petpets become real Krawks? I would think this to be okay, because you spend a lot of Neopoints for the Lab Ray plus the Petpet Lab Ray. I wouldn't normally think this to happen. (Please remove my name) Thank you for listening, TNT. I know you care about us! ~[username removed]
Yes, we do care. :) We're sorry, though, the Lab Ray is not meant to be a way of making Neopoints. It is meant to be a device that saves you Neopoints by avoiding training and painting costs. We're not planning on changing this.

Sad day, eh?

hi?? stephen!!! have you ever been in a relationship?... well i do.. i've been to seven relationships already? you?pls...answer me... or else: ill abandon my neopet.... ~ keith_colin
Alright, you are seriously beginning to creep me out.

Okay, 2nd time submitted on JN, already tried 4 times on Neopets. *crosses fingers* Okay, here's the actual question: My account has a trophy that says: Second place at Angry Tax Beast!! I've never heard of it, and I'm completely confused about it. Please help! ~ Jadedstar01
Tax Beast Well, apparently you were audited by some mutant yurble thing known as the ANGRY TAX BEAST RAWR! (I added the "Rawr" for emphasis.) This is a random even that fines you around 25% of the current Neopoints you have on hand. Luckily for you, Neopets records who suffers at the hand of the state of Tax Beast, and those who lose the most get trophies memorializing their plight! See the Hi-Score Table to see this months poor unfortunate souls.

Hi Stephen! ~ Stephen's Soul Mate
Hi.

hi jn staff,,, in your office,place or hideout who is the girl being link to my beloved STEPHEN... pls. answer this... and dave hope your doin fine... ~ keith_colin
I think I am calling the police now...

Hi Stephen! I just want to know one question; who is the EVIL genius who came up with Scifi's cipher?! It made me laugh when I solved it...3 days after I found him. Thanks! ~ kitty521994
All staffers came up with their own puzzle and riddle. Well, I stole mine from Lewis Carroll, but I think everyone else has original things.


Quoth the Raven, "Stephen's Puzzle was hard!"

Hi JN! I love your website! Keep up the good work! *smilies start raining down from the sky* ^-^ Anyway, why are some staffers missing from the JN staff theme from the site prefs? ~ jessicayean
Because they have stalkers worse than mine.

Hey there! I was just wondering, the green cross at the 'Help' Forum is shaped like that because of some legal issue or its just in TNT's long list of things to update? Thanks guys! =D ~ kinkiman
As was once answered in a way old Editorial (Neopian Times Ish 150)...

Why is the cross on the hospital GREEN?!? The cross on the "HELP" board is also green.What's going on? - Jade_princess24

We were politely asked to change the colour of the crosses, so we did :)

STEPHEN! I miss you so much, can you come and play keyquest with me? Afterwards, let's go on a date to Faerieland! ~ MeganKoenig
Alright, but only if you are instead going to be the wonderful Miss Rosie, and not Megan.

What school does Stephen go to? ~ Illusen the Earth Faerie
Neoschool.

Slide Rule
I'm happy if I have my handy Slide Rule.

Stephen I assume you've been on Neopets a long time as have I. But does anyone even know what happened to the gargantuan jackpot that once was held at Test Your Strength? If I remember correctly it was something around the likes of 300 million neopoints :P Thanks :D ~ Spike
It got itself won! Hard to believe, but that day came.

	One Hundred Million Neopoint Stamp
The winner bought three of me

Where can I meet Stephen? I love him! ~ Hannah Montana
Thanks, Hannah Montana. However, I don't like your music, so I don't want to meet you. Sorry.

Usuki Singing Star #3
Sometimes I walk a little faster in the school hallway just to get next to you, Stephen.

Where can I find Stephen's Facebook profile? ~ Princess Garnet
Um... On Facebook?

YAY STEPHEN! *gives jelly* I was just wondering, I seem to remember that Neopets used to have adjustable time for users in a different time zone than NST, but that option isn't available anymore. Was there a reason they changed that, or am I just imagining the whole thing? @__@ ~ misschatterboxone
Well, I don't remember ever seeing that since I joined Neopets in 2002, so you must be imagining it. Have you been in my Shroom Field? Neopet's probably will not do this because it means creating relative time paradox problems, upon which we need to call in Dr. Who to come in and sort out the problems. Seriously, can you imagine if TNT said they will release something at 12pm, that will be 24 different times across the globes, in reality.

Hi Stephen. I've enjoyed learning more about you as time goes by but this leads me to my question. Why do you rarely post news or post on the forums? Your insight is amazing. Without your posting, however, I'm left... Stephen-less and this makes me sad. Love and truly yours, your biggest fan. This is Jan. ~ Jan
Um, have you seen how many stalkers I get? Oh, and I am Batman, I am too busy fighting the Penguin

Bat Boy
I am the Terror that flaps in the Night!

Hey Stephen! *gives Stephen a slice of apple pie* I have a few questions. 1. With the new layout and all, how do we find the link to the History page? I still have a bit of trouble navigating through the new layout, but I like it. 2. How long have you been at JN? And 3. ...Do you like Death Note? xP ~ dragon_gc
The History page is on the left side navigation, under the "Jellyneo Links" drop down menu (click on the words to make the links appear!), where you can find other useful links like the Site Preferences, where you can change your theme.

I have been at Jellyneo since Fall 2005. You can see my work in the Avatar Database, the old Style Sheets, and the Portal.

Partially, watched some online and enjoyed, then stopped and never considered it again.

Heyyyy Stephen :D :D :D Do you remember me? we were chatting on MSN the other day :O ~ Stephen LuvrGrrl
Um. Terry? Is that you?

I have a tub of butter, a jar of cookies, and some whip cream. Would you like to come over and have some? I heard that Stephen was single and cute ~ {Future} Mrs. Stephen
Sorry, I currently belong to the lovely Ms. Suzie Q.

Oh Suzie Q, Baby I love you, Suzie Q!
