Hey guys! I've been loving this year's Advent Calendar animations. Super cute! Happy holidays to you all! :) ~~mirriseverin

From Neopian Times, Issue 951. JN Editorial ID: 20920


Arrrr matey’s, me pawkeets gettin restless and we’ve got a thousand doubloon coin burnin a hole in our pocket! In the past seedy smugglers would have rare items for sale at the smugglers cove for neopians to purchase, however it has been about 7 years since an item was released this way. The old smugglers cove items continue to be some of the most desired items in all of neopia. Could we have any insight if there are plans for the smugglers to get more merchandise in the future? I mean the smugglers prison sentence must be almost up by now! ~~grey_dragons

Aye matey, those hornswoggling hearties ought to be back out sailing the briny deep any day now! We have started discussions with the team about re-releasing more of the existing Smuggler's Cove items sometime in the near future. And perhaps later down the road, we can also start adding in some newer items as well! ~~Aesop

I was absolutely delighted with the Advent Calendar animation where that poor little Discarded Magical Blue Grundo Plushie (of Prosperity) received that scarf. Just seeing that smile made my whole day. Sadly, when I visited him later, no scarf. Maybe someone took it, mean as that would be. He lost the smile too. I can imagine the smile would have gone before too long anyway, he is still stuck there, but surely we can give him the scarf permanently? Little fellow has done so much for so many Neopains, I say he deserves it. Plus, continuity and such. ~~sirflopsy

Some of the Advent Calendar’s comic pages hold a very special place in my heart, and it’s awesome to see people react and connect to the pages as well! I remember in a previous version of this comic, we were adjusting the expressions of the Grundo in each panel, and having the plushie cleaned and smiling in the last panel felt the best to us. Even a Discarded Magical Blue Grundo needs some holiday cheer!

I think the idea of seeing the scarf and a (slightly) happier Grundo is something that we can definitely do! Although, we were thinking to preserve the Discarded Grundo’s legacy, perhaps it’s more of a seasonal winter change! Where in the winter time…. a friendly Neopian returns the scarf to warm our favourite Plushie.

This is something that I think we can possibly do…..pretty soon! (After the holiday break!) ~~Clammyhand

Hey TNT, I saw you just released two magical blue Grundo items in the advent calendar. Is there a chance to change the name of both items into 'TDMBGPOP Scarf Plushie' and 'TDMBGPOP Ornament'? ~~flaiyper

Great idea! Those items have both now been renamed to be uniform with the other TDMBGPOP items!

Ivory Knit Cardigan is super cute! But why is it zoned as shirt/dress? Aren't cardigans usually zoned as jacket? My pet is still chilly with the breeze... (please remove my username) ~~Anonymous

Hello! Glad to hear you like the cardigan! That was totally my bad for the zoning issue (smh). This cardigan is now zoned as Jacket, so have fun layering away! ~~Miss Rainbow

Are we allowed to enter the Gallery Spotlight multiple times, similar to winning the Userlookup Spotlight? I only ask because some people like changing up their galleries and would like to enter at a chance of winning again. If this isn’t currently possible, could this be green-lit? ~~viviiiann

You are certainly allowed to enter the Gallery Spotlight multiple times. That being said, you won't be able to win the Gallery Spotlight week after week, as we try to give chances to as many different Neopians as possible! ~~Aesop

Hi TNT! Since the maps got updated to HTML5, the Shop of Offers no longer exists in Neopia Central. However, it would be a shame if our favourite slorg is no longer available to visit! Could you guys please add a slorg rock for us to visit him? It could look something like this: Something Has Happened! "You peer under a small rock on the patch of land where the Shop of Offers used to be. To your surprise, you see the Very Rich Slorg having a meal with his family. He thanks you for visiting and invites you to join their meal, but you politely decline. He offers you 50 Neopoints as a gift, a reminder of what used to be there." ~~aliceo96

This seems completely doable! Having a visible link to the Rich Slorg within a Neopia Central map wouldn’t be difficult to implement. Since we’re converting the maps, Now is the time to make sure that we can capture issues like these- especially since this specific issue seems like a long-forgotten oversight. The exact look of how we implement this still needs to be figured out, but rest assured, the Rich Slorg will make its daring return soon! ~~Clammyhand

Hey TNT! Something I've noticed as my account becomes increasingly full of Vandagyres is that there isn't an option for a Vandagyre shopkeeper/gallery keeper. Would it be possible to add at least one Vandagyre option in the future? :D (Please remove my username) ~~Anonymous

This is a wonderful suggestion! Since we had our first ever Vandagyre athlete in this year's Altador Cup, I'd say it's high time Vandagyres get more representation all around Neopia! We will certainly add this to our list! ~~Aesop

I did not want to write. However my Orange Grundo, OrangenaToo made me. He is number 69 on the book reading list. He wants to read them all. However 78 of the 354 books he needs to read he finds boring. They are mostly cheaper books too. You have no idea about how much it bugs him that he cannot get a trophy because of the number of letters in his name. This is archaic and unfair. Could you please end this awful tradition and allow all pets to be properly educated? OrangenaToo thanks you in advance. ~~nashie363comesback

TNT! For the love of all things Sloth, PLEASE remove the boring book and disgusting food feature! It's impossible to win any book award or gourmet club award now with no work around by changing the language on the newer items. Please remove this feature so new users can have a chance to win! Please please please with a cherry on top? :) Thanks :D ~~kaylaxbeth

We have definitely share your concerns with the boring book and disgusting food features! It does make it incredibly difficult for new players or pets with a certain amount of letters in their name to gain trophies. Besides, being brave enough to try new things that may seem rather offputting at first is one of the ways we all learn and grow! We will check in with the team about removing this feature once we are back from break! ~~Aesop

Hi! Do you have a timeframe for the quick reference page and the petpages to be updated? Is that part of the site conversion plans? Thanks! ~~omarchi_10

A wonderful question that we have brought up internally as a team as well! We have just completed the designs for the latest update to the quick ref pages with some functionality updates. We are just starting to talk about the development work as a team and will announce the timing once we have a better idea of creating the best experience. Stay tuned and thank you for the question! ~~Yarner

Hi! So happy for the new pet slots, thank you so much for this! However, I was wondering if it was normal that the Neopets doesnt appear in alphabetic order like the others? I just created a pet with a name starting with F and it now appears in first place on my profile... ~~fujimii

Hey there! Because of the newly added pet slots, pets aren’t sorted alphabetically anymore. We are working on an update to the Quick Ref page though that will allow you to order pets whichever way you want! ~~Gutterfoot

Hello! I was wondering, what might be the judging criteria for the poetry gallery? A number of people I've noticed have been submitting multiple poems only to get TMGE's for all of them, and they're left confused on how to improve. Are poems chosen purely on quality, and if so what might distinguish a publishable poem from a TMGE one? Or are other factors involved like number of previous poems published or time submitted? Thanks! ~~twillieblossom

This is a great question I often see pop up! Poems are judged on a variety of criteria including:

Writing Quality - The quality of the work is the first thing we look at. Poems can of course be more surreal and less linear, but they should still be easy to read/follow. Putting some emotion into your writing, whether they are silly poems that make the judge laugh or cute poems that tug at the heartstrings, always helps improve your chances.

Theme - Since most poetry galleries are themed days, how users write about the theme is important. For example, if there are a plethora of poems about the same character for a pet day, then chances are only one or two poems about that character will be chosen. So coming up with different/uncommon themed poetry ideas can help!

Rules - Following the rules is another big one. These are the same as the site rules, so the major things to stay away from are romance, violence, and real-world references

Grammar and Punctuation - We try not to be too strict about these since English is not everyone's first language, however if there are a multitude of errors and mistakes, your entry will be less likely to be chosen when compared to others who put in the time and effort to polish their writing.

Length - Haikus are fun, but a single one is not enough to win a poetry contest. If you chose a shorter style format such as a Haiku, make sure to include at least a few so that your submission is long enough to be considered.

Previous wins/activity - Although the above rules are the most important, when it comes down to choosing between poems of relatively equal quality we tend to give more chances to users who have never submitted before (or at least not in a long time). Although it may seem trivial to someone who has won countless poetry prizes, receiving a trophy recognizing you for your writing can be monumental for new writers who have never received any positive feedback on their work before. This validation might inspire them to write more entries for the poetry competition or even branch out into other creative contests/projects! At the end of the day, the Neopian Times is all about fostering the tremendous creativity found in the Neopian community!

I hope this all helps! Please keep in mind that we receive so many poetry entries for each pet day that unfortunately we are not able to accept everyone, even if they do submit multiple poems. ~~Aesop

Where is the best place to find the Advent calendar? ~~durple39

The easiest way to get to the Advent Calendar is to click on Explore in the top menu, and then scroll down to Terror Mountain, once there the Advent Calendar is at the top of the map in the middle. ~~Kikocat We are looking to hopefully add a quick access button on the homepage soon though, so stay tuned on that! ~~Gutterfoot

Hello TNT, I am currently writing to you from underwater. Apologies if this message is soaking wet and illegible. But I noticed that both Mutant and Babies have gotten special NC releases this year (Mutant's got a gram, Baby got a new mystery capsule AND an RR cap), but very little for Maraquans. As a big fan of Maraquans and with the exciting new Maraquan pets released this year, we really could use some new wearables for them. Please give them the love too! ~~yuriofwind

Hello! No worries at all, I’ve towel-dried this message and then put it under a blow dryer so I was able to read it just fine. x) Great observation! We like to cycle releases like this and Maraquan pets are next in line! :wink: ~~Miss Rainbow

Hi. The Advent Calendar prizes have been great! One of them is Snowagercone , which is currently classified as "Food." I think it would make more sense to classify it as "Snow Food" because it's a snow cone. I'd love to put in in my gallery alongside all the other icy foods. Could Donny please remedy this? Thanks. ~~_brainchild_

This is an excellent suggestion! I’m sure Inah would agree the Snowagercone fits better under the Snow Food classification! We will be sure to have Donny make a change! ~~Aesop

Hi! I've noticed and I'm sure quite a few people have noticed that the new Tyrannian Bruce color has a weird shadow WITHOUT the bow that looks like a bow and it's also missing part of the lineart. Can these be fixed please? It's really hard to customize it with these issues. ~~missjitterbug

Terribly sorry about that! Our artists recently gave this paint brush some much-needed love. They were able to clean up that lineart and remove those lingering shadows from the bow, so happy customizing! ~~Aesop

The new Fir Cookies released through the Advent calendar on 12/6 is a duplicate name for Fir Cookies released long ago. Please fix this. Thanks ~~gemini_a88

Thank you for the heads up! We have renamed the item to “Superior Fir Cookies” to reflect their vastly superior taste. ~~Aesop

Because it's the Advent calendar and the Snowager is always sleeping, does that mean there is absolutely no chance of getting the avatar for the entire month? On top of there already being no chance to get the avatar because it's broken? Inquiring minds want to know! :) ~~peamess

That’s correct. You cannot get the avatar this month as the Snowager is hibernating. The avatar isn’t broken though and we can confirm you can still obtain it outside of the Month of Celebrating! The percentage chance is just… very, very, very slim… Good luck to you in the New Year on the avvie! ~~Gutterfoot

Hi TNT, I absolutely love the new plushies you've released in neopetsshop, however, I'm wondering will they be able to be shipped to Australia and other countries? I love collecting Neopets merch! Thank you for your time and I hope you have a great weekend! ~~bubbles150

Hi there! Thank you so much for the plushie compliments! I wish I had better news to share, but at this time Australia and New Zealand are among the list of countries we aren’t able to ship to at the moment due to restrictions on international shipping in general. :C We hope this changes soon and will make sure to post about it on social/in the news if/when this changes! ~~Gutterfoot

Hi there esteemed Editors! When I send my Neofriends a gifts, I'd love to be able to send them a short message along with it, so they know why I'm sending it (i.e "Get well soon!" or "Good luck on your finals!") - or, alternatively, to be able to attach a gift to a Neomail. Do you think this is a feature that might one day be able to be added? -no tags here-3 ~~spikegalactic2000

I LOVE this idea and definitely think we should implement it when we do our NC Mall redesign with the instant-gift feature we want to add. After we get it working there, we can hopefully use the same functionality for NP gifting as well. Even the idea of attaching a gift to a Neomail, yes please! We’ll take a look at that as we redesign Neomail as well. ~~Gutterfoot

Hey TNT- So I just logged into my side account for the first time in about 2 months and the 500 free NeoCash alert came up on it. I have 4 side accounts in addition to my main, and am wondering what I can do. Since the alert comes up automatically, are we allowed to just claim the 500 NC on our side accounts? ~~Anonymous

Yes, you can absolutely claim the 500 NC on side accounts. Happy holidays! ~~Gutterfoot

Hi! I am LOVING all the new NC items you guys have been coming up with. They have been so cute! ^_^ I was wondering if it was at all possible to make the newest unlimited edition (Autumn Leaves Body Paint) able to fit baby pets as well. I was playing around on DTI, and I came up with the cutest customization! I guess there was a bug or something, and it fit my baby lupe perfectly! I was disappointed when it no longer fit. Please? *Insert big sad eyes here* ~~asiaminour

Hello! We are so happy to hear that you’ve been enjoying the latest NC releases! : ) And that sounds so adorable! I can have our art team adjust the item so it can fit baby pets as well! ~~Miss Rainbow

As a long-time user, I have copies of my customized pets from way back when. In the last month, when I've tried to download photos of my pets, I've been unable to do so. Why? I have always enjoyed looking back on the various customizations and have watched my family grow from one pet to now seven pets. Hopefully, my little family will grow more with the new pet slots. Please help with pet photo downloads. Thanks bunches!! ~~whiteowl7

Ahh yes! When we redid the homepage and added the pet pop-ups, we do have a little camera button that’s been disabled from launch as we haven’t gotten to that feature yet. I’ve talked to the team about it and they’re going to take a look to see how to get pet photos back up and running! ~~Gutterfoot

I love zapping and adopting out pets but sometimes new owners want a gender change. I have the lab ray on all of my accounts but I'm only allowed to battle the Lab Ray Scientist on my main account, which is full of my permies. Is there any way you could let us turn off item and neopoint drops in the battledome, kind of like how you let us turn off Trudy? ~~0o0slytherinpride0o0

This is a great question. I talked to the team about it after your submission and there’s a couple of different ways we can go about this, so they’re going to take some time to think on which is the best to implement. C: ~~Gutterfoot

Hi, Thanks for taking time to read this. Since the conversion to the New style Neoboard. I haven't been able to find a connection from the boards to set my preferences without going off site to find the link. Maybe I'm an old lady now (20+ years) and not adjusting to change well, or maybe I'm not seeing where that handy button moved to. Could we maybe get a more obvious button? Leaves a plate of fresh treats, and warm Borovan for the team! ~~Anonymous

Hi there! This is something that the team has been talking about for a little bit and we actually already have a task for the team to add this in! Thanks for the Borovan, happy holidays! ~~Gutterfoot

Hi - are there any plans to add further album items or album related avatars in the near future? ~~skillboy9

This is a great question. We know our Neopian collectors have been asking for more album items, so we’ve been working hard on some new album items for the upcoming Advent Calendar! We will also keep an eye out for more opportunities to release new album items and album related avatars in the future! ~~Aesop

Howdy TNT. I've been on your site about 15 years, across a few different accounts. I just recently regained access to an account whose birthday and email were messed up due to COPPA regulations and a misunderstanding on the Neoboards (long story) and... I have a question. I'm now using the account only for pet storage and lab ray zaps. Nothing else. Can I please transfer the NPs from this account to my new main account? There's 2.9 million NP in question, and my new main account (despite being younger) is better established than my old one, from which I'm transferring the NPs. Is it ok that I transfer NP via the trading post to my new main account?? I'd hate to leave that NP sitting around on an account where I can't use it. :( ~~cobalt_the_fox

Totally! Since you were using that older account as your main at one time to get those points, you would be able to move them to your current main account. ~~Kikocat

Dear TNT, What happened to the real-life plushies that were supposed to be released in July? There was a silhouette image on the Neopets FaceBook page that seemed to imply that at least a few had been physically produced. ~~jaylahcat

Hello! Those plushies got stuck on a ship and they wrote us letters every once in a while telling us about their journey. The food was scarce but the sound of the ocean was very calming. : ) They were incredibly brave and they are NOW AVAILABLE in our shop! Woo! Once your order arrives make sure to cuddle these Neopets extra hard because they need it! Sorry for the delay on getting these plushies in our shop, but we hope the wait is worth it! Visit our Neopets Shop to preorder now! ~~Miss Rainbow

Will users ever be able to join more than one guild? Thank you. :) ~~princesskatie1993

Yes, you are welcome to be on a guild on your side accounts so you can be in multiple guilds, but please keep in mind you can only participate in contests in your guild on your main account. ~~Kikocat We may change this in the future though, depending on how we redesign guilds, so I don’t want to dismiss the idea altogether! c: ~~Gutterfoot

TNT, pretty pretty please with a meepit on top, answer my question? I just want to know!! I've noticed over the years that Neopets has relaxed some of its older rules so I had to ask: Will art / coding / etc commissions (for NP or NC) ever be allowed? If we're willing to take the risk? I'm awful at both but I would love to pay someone to help me. :( But those things take a lot of work so I feel like it's hard to find people to do it for free! (Rightfully so; who can afford to work for free?) Thanks for your time and please remove my username though (I'm shy) ~~Anonymous

We welcome and encourage you to trade art or code, but unfortunately we cannot allow commissions on the Neopets website due due to safety concerns. ~~Kikocat
