Hi TNT!! This is a small request, but could we please get the petpet Sunutek in the Christmas colour? It's such a cute little petpet! And despite being decades old, it has absolutely no paintable colours! I think the Sunutek would feel really cheerful to get appreciation, and to be painted Christmas!! I hope this is early enough to ask for such a request!! if this gets published, Hi Santa!!! ~~gaisaur
A Christmas Sunutek! I know just the time of year to release that!
Hiya TNT! I had an idea for the lab ray that's probably highly impractical but thought I'd ask anyway. What if there was a chance the ray malfunctions and sends your pet back in time? In other words - the art gets changed to the old artwork (maybe with a nice purple/yellow circle to match).~~windish1234
I must say this is the most creative request to bring back UC pets that I’ve ever heard! Unfortunately, that doesn’t change the answer.
Hi TNT! Can you please add Burlap to the list of colours under the drop down list for "All Neopet Colours" at the Rainbow Pool? I don't know if any others are missing, but that one definitely is, and I want to see which pets are available in that colour. Thanks!~~neo492492
You're just in time! I've placed an order for one Burlap Usul.
Hi! So I entered my side account gallery a few months ago & won spotlight #830. I stated in my entry description that I wanted my main account (this account) credited with the trophy. That didn't happen. I've sent in many tickets & they said they'd mail someone on the team & have this fixed. The request was passed on more than once with nothing done. Now I'm being told it's not something you usually do. I made a board & other users have stated that their main accounts are credited when they ask. I'm getting nowhere with the ticket system. I'd like a clear answer on the teams stance on the matter. Are you no longer crediting main accounts when side accounts win the gallery spotlight? Thank you.~~ krasavitsa_
Our apologies on this oversight, you should see your trophy on the correct account now.
I am writing you all because I have a plea. I would love more than anything in Neopia to have more colors for Neddlers. They are my favorite petpet and it's kind of a bummer it's so limited. Red, blue, green, christmas... How about a Valentine Neddler, or a Chocolate Neddler, or a Faerie Neddler. The possibilities are endless! I want to humbly say, pretty please give us more colors of these adorable little creatures.~~peachespoolay
More colours for Neddlers. Gotcha.
Hi! I adore the colors of the dyeworks extra plaid scarves and I was so excited to use them on my cybunny until I saw that it's fully hidden behind the ruff! The original version restricts ruff - is there a possibility of tweaking the dyework versions' restrictions to do this too? Thank you!~~happychild01
Ohh you're totally right, Donny did some switches and snips so it should be all good now!
I think we need more silly food based costumes like the Hot Dog Mascot with Mustard, Commemorative Birthday Cupcake Costume, and Corn on the Cob Costume. Maybe a burrito or taco or banana costume please? :'D~~winner19955
I totally agree I love the food themed ones I got to come up with the corn on the cob one which was really fun. Sadly the spooky season is almost over therefore everything we have planned has already been in the works for a while, but I will definitely keep in mind for next year!
Am I early enough to request Burlap Usul for Usul day? ~~silly_mistake
You're just in time! I've placed an order for one Burlap Usul.
Heya, TNT! Is there any chance that in the future we could see some Legends and Letters Avatars? I'm really enjoying the game and I wouldn't mind showing off an avatar of sorts based off it.~~yoshisislandbandit
Why yes, you can expect to see one in the near future. Happy playing!
I've seen rumours of a new Letters and Legends stamp being released soon. Would it be possible to put it in the Ghouls Catchers stamp album, and rename the album to something more fitting, like Apps? Otherwise that album will likely never be finished, and the new stamp would either have to be put in Other IV or have a new album created just for it.~~shadiochaos
This is a great idea. Done!
Can you please change the rarity of the Burgundy Lipstick please? I dont know why it got changed but all lipstick r80 so why is this one any different?~~_sissiy_sis_369
oh how odd, sure I will have Donny make this change.
Hi there! I was wondering if we could get some more flavor text for our pets- They're such a huge part of the site, and with how long we've had them for there's only a small rotation of the different comments your active pet can make as you browse the site. A little extra variety would go a long way, and would just be a fun little addition. Thanks heaps, and happy halloween!!~~leitra
This is something we'd already discussed before, and it's slated to go out with the site redesign! HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO YOU TOO!
Hello!!! Due to it being a bit of a grey area, I wanted to clarify if it is okay to seek pets for trade that have specific Petpet Lab exclusive petpets attached? They’re zapped & so they cannot be removed to sell for a profit. There’s also no guarantee that you can ever zap a specific petpet yourself, since there are thousands of possibilities when you zap your petpet so the odds are not in your favor. I would love to have a Picnic or Jelly colored petpet myself. I asked around, and no one is quite sure your stance on the matter. Please clear this up for us!~~fleurare
Go ahead! But use caution. Remember: if you remove a zapped petpet, it will revert back to its original colour and/or species*
Hello, I'm wondering if there has been any updates or progress with getting the That's Not Rubbish avatar working again? It seems it's still not being awarded to users. ~~xcrimsondemonbloodx
Sorry, none at all! No updates expected in the near future either. On the other hand, there has been progress with the Grumpy Old King, with new probability values decided for all the prizes that haven’t come out through that daily yet. The next step is to actually implement the new values, and we’ll let you know when that happens.
Hi TNT! hands out Halloween candy So I've noticed that a lot of the new pet colors (like Oil Paint and Steampunk) have come out in pets that are not as popular as say Shoyrus and Kacheeks which are supposed to be the most popular of ALL pets. As a Shoyru and Uni fan, I'm wondering why popular pets are not some of the first among your new releases. Is there a reason for the order in which you release the new pet colors?~~noblenat20
Nope, none at all! Once we get the results from the poll, we usually release a few pets in the newly added colours soon after (whichever ones have their pet days next). After that, it’s just a matter of picking two colours from all of the colours that are remaining for each pet. In some cases, the choice may be constrained by all the other art work the team has left to finish. However, when that isn’t the case, there’s no other criteria used to select the colours. Oh, except for requests to the editorial! :)
Hi! The steampunk blumaroos seem to be having some issues with their emotions... the mouth just won't stop changing expressions! Can this be fixed? Thanks! :)~~knightwriter2010
Thanks for bringing this to our notice, we’ll let the right people know.
Hi TNT, hope you're all doing well. I was about to buy Cropped Auburn Locks from the NC Mall this weekend, when I noticed it was gone. I never saw an expiry date on it. Any reason for why it was removed all of a sudden?~~specioid
Oh that is so strange. I went ahead and put this back in the mall for you.
So I see that someone figured out how to code a userlookup so that it looks like your pets are ucs (or whatever you want them to look like) and they change the name that shows up. They are sharing it with everyone on the pound chat and saying it's not against the rules. But I feel like it is or at least it should be. Cause if you can just use CSS to make your pet how you want then what's the point of the rest of us working hard to achieve that goal the regular way? What if the person who owns the pet Tina is so proud of their pet and now they see other people falsely owning 'Tina' and they are upset cause their pet is unique and now lots of people own Tina? I feel like it gives and unfair advantage and full of lies~~_sissiy_sis_369
Well, we didn't have a rule about this before, but we just made one for it now - Coding a user lookup to make your pets look different from what they actually are, or to change their names, is against the rules. Doing so can get you in trouble.
Recently you've released new colors for the Jowlard, Nupie, and Mundo. However, the unpainted versions of these petpets have not been assigned a base color, so they cannot even be painted at the Petpet Puddle! Can you please fix it so these previously unpaintable pets can at least be colored to the newly released colors? :3~~howdareyoufreezeme1
Oh dear! Yes, a colleague will look into this next week.
Would you guys consider removing the account age restrictions on adoptions? It's really frustrating to wait 4 months to move some pets around. If the answer is no, can you add some perspective on why these restrictions were put into place?~~silly_mistake
We cannot remove the account age restrictions on adoptions, as they were put in place to prevent scamming. I'm not going to go into details about this one, because I don't want to give unscrupulous minds any new ideas they may not have had until now!
Good evening! hands a Bogie Berry in a cute little Halloween gift box It's freshly picked! ;D My question is in regard to the new Spooky Food items on the news. It would seem the Poison Apples and Rotting Veggies Salad have not been activated. Is there any chance they'll be activated soon? There are also other much older Spooky Food items that still haven't been activated yet, such as the Deadly Apple Pie, Elderly Apple, Forgotten Apple, Ghost Meepmallows, Refreshing Barrel Water, Spectral Cinnamon Rolls, and Sponge Apple. What gives? Do you hate us Spooky Food lovers? ;-;~~the_mausoleum
Boo, you're right about all of those items! Spooky Food lovers can now rejoice as all of the items here have now been made active.
Oops! Usukicon Y20 Goodie Bag has not been retired yet, even though this year's 'Con has already happened and the new Usukicon Y21 Bag has been released. Could you fix that? Thanks.
Yes this has since been retired :)
There was one question from a restocker about Stackpath… something like ‘hello there, we need to talk’. If you can find that, please show it to Devon along with this answer here and ask him whether it looks okay. Once he’s approved of it, you can publish this one.
While Stackpath has been incredibly helpful with blocking malicious activity on the site, we are aware that innocent users have also been getting caught up in its net. Accordingly, we have been working with support to look into specific user requests and help them resume normal activity on the site. Just today we made additional modifications to minimize inconvenience to honest players. If you are still facing problems using the site normally, write to support and someone will look into it.
Is there any chance we could get more plushies of the Food Club pirates? Some were released years back but there's still a lot of pirates that don't have plushies yet! I think many of us would appreciate a Gooblah plushie or a Stuff-a-Roo plushie!
Shiver me timbers, are we really short on Food Club plushies?! I’ll alert me Cap’n immediately!
Hello! Is the Pet Spotlight is on hiatus? It looks like hasn't been updated for a while.
Nobody’s forgotten, work has already begun here!
Hey TNT, I had this idea some time ago and want to know your opinion on it. What do you think about discontinuing a neopet species? There are some neopets that aren't popular at all, and most people tend to evade them, so why not just retire them? o:
Oh my goodness :O. We would never. All Neopet species are made equally and perfectly as they are. To get rid of one would just be ... well unspeakable....
Hi Jade, could you please add some front/top hair restricts for our new Corn on the Cob Costume? For example I'd love Chia's hair removed when wearing it. Thank you :3
Gotcha Donny's on it! Just a few snips here and there and done.
Hi TNT!! *hands out snickerdoodles* Recently, I was looking at past winners of the caption contest and noticed something. No one really seems to get exactly what a caption is. The dictionary definition says: a title or explanation for a picture or illustration. Yet that is not what is submitted, the entries are basically conversations as shown by people putting Grundo: words being said, etc. I'm just curious as to why, after all these years, this has not been cleared up.
Well sure dictionaries are very concise in their definitions, but if you haven't noticed Neopia has it's own set of unconventional ways. So caption contest is whatever you interpret to be funny or clever. So no it doesn't have to be so strict it's whatever you like and whatever everyone votes to be the best!
Uni Breadsticks is classified as type "none" instead of "Food" like it should be, so it doesn't show up in my SDB when I search for Food. Please fix! Thanks! ^^
You got it! These breadsticks are now stocking at the Bakery.
For those of us who are less talented in art but would like to contribute to the Art Gallery, could we possibly have one competition where we deliberately submit bad art and the worst of the worst gets chosen?
I relate to this so much. I am also not an artist either so I understand. And after discussing with kikocat who runs art gallery she is totally down and excited for this. So please submit entries up to 48 hrs before october 1st and the images chosen will be featured in the October 1st edition of the Art Gallery.
