Hey there! 1. Can't wait to see the mobile site develop more and more. 2. Thanks to Aesop for all of the killer work with the NT. 3. Had a question about the caption contest. It used to be pretty regularly updated with the captions to vote on the last Tuesday of the month but over the last 2 months it has been irregular on the Thursday and Wednesday. As well the days at which the voting extends to has been irregular. Is it possible to go back to the regular schedule so it can be anticipated when to check to see if our captions made it and be prepared for the length of voting. Keep up the good work! - andypopo
1. Me too! 2. Thanks so much I really appreciate the support! 3. Glad you brought this up! The caption contest voting schedule has definitely been a bit erratic lately. From now on we will make sure there are at least 7 days of voting time before a new contest starts. This way everyone will have a full week to vote and can have a better idea of when voting will begin.
The Ancient Dacardite Necklace is fully hidden on an Ogrin. Can the ruff get removed to be able to see it, please? :)~~mystere_
Oops so sorry about that, sure!
Hello, TNT! Royal is one of the most iconic colors on the website and I assume it is a favorite of many Neopians, just like me. The same way I love the Royal color, I've shared this passion with Jetsams for the past 10 years, when I created my first one. Since then, I've been looking forward to seeing Royal Jetsams being announced on their day. The last Neopet to receive a Royal color was Meerca in 2013! Could you please release a Royal Jetsam on their day? It would be great to see a new Royal pet after 7 years. Thank you so much!~~ givilato
I saw your question a few weeks ago and totally agreed it’s been too long. So spoiler alert we will be doing royal pets for Jetsam day! Stay tuned to see how they turn out :)
Hi, this is a huge thing that I feel needs to be addressed: Are users allowed to offer quest help (providing shop wizard links) with a beauty contest or caption contest link in their signatures? It feels like they are offering a service in place of votes and it’s not fair for those who are unable to do the same. Thanks.~~winner19955
Hi! This can be concerning, however, if they are actually helping by giving links and being active then having a link in their NeoSig for either contest is fine. But they cannot create the topic for the sole purpose of advertising and not actually offer any help.
Just wanted to send a little love your way to thank you all for everything you're doing for Neopia, Neopets, and the fanbase.

Hey TNT, let me start by saying thanks for this year’s CC, the NC portion has been lovely nwn My suggestion is to try to help the NC economy, I love how you’ve created retired mystery capsules of many old activities like Wonderclaw, DWs and MME’s; have you considered a retired Jubjub power bounce or a retired KQ token prizes capsule?~~ drabkin
Glad you are enjoying it, and why yes it's as if you read my mind. Jubjub Power Bounce Retired Capsule should be coming to the nc mall very soon!
Hi! Are we allowed to participated in the nc portion of charity corner on our sides? I have some nc junk there I'd like to get rid of and I'd like to use the nc prizes on my side pets.~~emaciate
Yes you are but only the nc portion of the event.
Hi TNT! It's been awhile since you announce that a new Mutant Pet was on his way. We all get excited, but still we wonder where is it? We know is the Mutant Vandagyre, so please can you tell us when is coming or if the Pet still coming? Thanks in advance.~~paco_39
Yes it's still on its way! Sorry for the delay, we had some other things we had to prioritize before releasing but it should be very soon. Thanks for your patience!
I was looking through old screenshots that I took when the Magma Pool guard was sleeping several years ago and I noticed something odd: All of my screenshots circa 2012-2014 indicate a certain time period... and then the one other screenshot I have (from 2017) has a completely different time. What's up with that? Do I have two times when the guard is asleep? Did the times change at some point in the past? If someone at Neopets noticed I was logging in at stupid AM (well, it's stupid AM in my time zone, at least) to re-paint my Xweetok and moved me to a more forgiving time, then thank you, but also I think that's probably not the case. I guess I just want to know what's going on is all. If anyone actually remembers, I mean. But thank you either way.~~harryandpirates
Yes, at one time the times were reset so you don't have two times, just your new time. Glad your new time does work better for you though. :)
Hey TNT, I have been playing Neopets off and on for about 16 years now and I just wanted to give my continued thanks for all you do! Neo has always been a safe space for me and I'm glad it's remained that way for so long. I went premium again this year for the bday sale and I just want to send as much positive energy y'alls way for the upcoming ending of Flash as I can. Thanks for keeping a site that acts as a retreat for so many of us active for long! Sites like this are a rarity anymore and I really appreciate it! ~~fizzobob

Today I bought a Flotsam Beach Ball from another users shop. I have been collecting these little round things that bounce in my Gallery. When I put it in to my Gallery, I noticed I had another one with exactly the same name, though they look different. Is this just an oversight? .. or have the meepits been up to mischief. Hope you can sort it. Both items are in my Gallery under "Bounce " ... Hope you all have a great day. Thanks. ~~maxina__53 Flotsam Beach Ball
Those meepits are at it again. Thanks for letting us know we will come up with a different name!
Hi TNT! My Neopets and I absolutely loved the Usukicon event and the new items that came out this year!! All my neopets want a turn wearing the Usuki Doll Packaging Foreground. :D My question though is, how long will the Y22 Usukicon Goodie Bag (neopoint item) be available for? This owner here needs that Caffeine Overload Usuki Bobblehead very badly, as it totally encapsulates my life (and probably someone else's at TNT!). It's probably one of the funniest items I've ever seen. Thanks!! ~~Neopian experiencing caffeine overload
So happy to hear you enjoyed the new items! :) And The Y22 Usukicon Goodie Bag (NP) will be available from now up until the next Usukicon!
Hey. Noticed Meat and fruit Kebab doesn't capitalize the word Fruit in the item name. ~~sixlets1
Good catch! Should be fixed now.
Hey TNT! Had a question about relationships between characters. Is it still not allowed? I understand there have been important characters that I came accross in the Neopedia that mention romance and love interest (example - King Jazan and Nabile). Is it okay to have our characters be moms and dads for story or maybe a tragic Romeo and Juliet story? Im 100% behind you on characters "dating" between players because that could go so wrong so fast. Please remove my username if you could please.
Sorry to say this but none of those rules have changed. You would not be able to have any romance or love interests, however you can say they are related to one another (just no overly graphic details). So no a tragic love story wouldn’t really work within those rules.
Some time ago you guys said you were updating the prize pool of the art gallery so people wouldn't get items that have become basically worthless with the pass of time. But I still see people saying they got a codestone, or a dubloon and personally I lost count of how many cheap petpets I've got (acko, apis, etc). Did this update actually happened? I don't expect to win stuff worth millions or anything, but it feels kinda underwhelming to spend a lot of time in a piece, getting picked and getting a prize worth what, 10k? Please remove my username, thanks.
Hi, yes the prize pool for some creative contests (Art Gallery, Caption Contest, Poetry Gallery, and Storytelling Contest) were updated in the Fall of 2018. This does not mean prizes were removed so there is still a chance to get codestones, dubloons and petpets but newer items were added.
Hey! It seems like King Skarls Snowbunny is still not appearing anywhere, and I was wondering if you could look into this. Thanks!
I have looked into this and checked with our programmer and he said it is active but it is a very rare drop hence why it is very difficult to find. But it is active and working.
Hey TNT! i recently created a new account zombieghosts as my new main but i am regretting doing this is it okay if i switch back to my old main when my Premium runs out? Promise i wont switch again!~~zombieghosts
Sure, you would be able to switch back after your Premium on zombieghosts runs out.
Hi! Could you possibly consider making a new Retired Baby Capsule in the NC Mall please? There are very limited options when it comes to dressing Baby Neopets and rereleasing the old items in a capsule would be really fun! Thanks!~~cherry_25
This is great idea, we will definitely try to add this to schedule.
Underwater Maraquan Markings are so amazing!! Thank you TNT! But when my maraquan wears clothes the markings hover over the clothes and looks so awkward! Can they be rezoned to marking instead of static?~~_sissiy_sis_369
Yes, they will take a cool minute to sync, but they will be up shortly.
Hello! I'm very sad because the yellow, green and blue bruce morphing potions were mistakenly given a rarity of 101 and therefore do not show up in Kauvara's, making them impossible to find. Could a hero come and fix this? I'd be so pleased!~~floons
Donny has gone ahead and adjusted the rarity of those three.
Hi! Can you fix the issue that Pirate Marafin and Christmas Sunutek in petpet puddle are unpaintable? These petpets are in the puddle as painted colors aren't set with a base color for the original petpet, so they cannot be created currently. Thanks!~~zackattackplayspkmn
You're totally right, Donny has gone ahead and set those up so they should be able to be made now.
HAPPY THOUGHTS: Just wanted to send a little love your way to thank you all for everything you're doing for Neopia, Neopets, and the fanbase.

Hello! Just letting you know the item "Yoooyuball Pen" has more than the recommended number of O's in it :)~~mopsihog
You're totally right Donny has gone ahead and fixed it!
Hi. I was surprised to see a "Random Poetry" round in the Poetry Contest. This hasn't been done in a very long time. Will there be more of these? I was only submitting for Neopian Holidays.
Yes we will definitely try to these more as we can!
Hey TNT! Do you think Donny could fix Maractite Dimensional Trap? Its estimated price is set to zero so it's a r99 item that doesn't stock. Thank you!~~acara_575
Woah weird, okay we have now priced this item!
The new Garins Collectors Outfit eliminates all hand held items when you put the outfit on. Please add this to your to-do list. ~~only1bocelli
You're right poor zone choice, Donny is going to change it to belt, this change has to sync then it should be available!
Hello, around the years 2011-2012 we had NC cards available in Mexico, I was wondering if you plan on bring them back to that country, I think there's quite a lot of players that would benefit from it, I hope you do, thanks for being awesome :D~~principe
Yes we are actually working on restocking them so keep an eye out!
Hi TNT! Thank you guys for clearing up the BC. Also loving this month's collectible. We have recently been seeing Unconverted pets being deleted, and their lookup says the pet's name has been deemed inappropriate. However, all of these pets were made at a time where their name WAS appropriate, and these pets were stated to be grandfathered in, as the rule was not in place then. Why are these pets being deleted now after so long? Thanks so much! ~~mindy_rocks_socks
Unfortunately our filtering system is not perfect. It’s a living filter that we have added to and removed from over the years. Some names have been created to circumvent our filters and have escaped our notice. Every once in a while one of these situations is brought to our attention and we then have to take some kind of action. This is due to the fact we are an all-ages site. If a name is deemed to be inappropriate, it must be removed. There’s no way around this. If it is in a grey area and can be grandfathered, that is of course always preferable!
hey, just a quick lil question. if I accidentally submit a piece for the art gallery on my side, am I allowed to resubmit it on my main without getting in trouble? ~~calicotabbies101
Sure, you can submit the entry from your main account. If the wrong entry is accepted, please open a ticket and they can pass on any messages to the contest judge to get them changed. :)
Hi TNT, may you please let us know when the next Premium Sale is on? Thank you!~~bubbles150
Yes it is currently live as of today! This will be available till the 8th of September!
