Costume Contest: Round 2 Now Open
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on October 16, 2018, 11:59 am NST

The second round of our Costume Contest is now open! Go vote!

You are given three votes, and you may vote for whichever costumes made it to this round. (The top rated 75 pets from round one moved on. If your costume didn't make it, never fear! It could show up as a staff pick at the end. :D)

You may vote for three different pets, three of the same pets, or however you want to spread your votes around! You just may not vote for yourself.

As a reminder, please only use one jnAccount to vote. Last year we disqualified a handful of people that made the contest unfair by voting on several accounts. :(

Neopets Cryptoquest
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on October 18, 2018, 9:14 am NST


A new venture from Rarebits, in partnership with Overpowered, has debuted this morning, and it's called Neopets Cryptoquest. If you've ever worked with blockchain technologies before (like Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc.), then you'll probably be familiar with how this works.

Here's the beginning of the backstory:

This is not your typical Haunted Woods tale about ghouls and goblins lurking in the neglected and dangerous Haunted Woods.

It all started when Aisha, Draik, Kougra, and Uni decided to go to the Haunted Woods, being brave and curious. They wanted to be challenged on a quest to feed the Brain Tree and find out a mysterious piece of Neopian lore.

On the way Kougra said, "Guys, it's getting late and we don’t want to be stuck in the Haunted Woods when it gets dark.”

Aisha added, excitedly, "And don't forget that we still have Halloween parties to attend." So they all agreed and decided to complete the quest and get out as fast as they could.

From now until November 4th, you have the opportunity to purchase packs of virtual Neopets collectable cards with the goal of collecting certain sets of them. A Standard pack, containing 3 cards, is available for $4.99 USD, and a Deluxe pack, guaranteed to contain rarer cards, is available for $7.99 USD. (If you buy the packs in bulk, there's a slight discount for buying 3x, 5x, and 10x packs at once.)

Here are some of the virtual cards you'll receive:


Every virtual card you purchase comes with a Rare Item Code, redeemable on Neopets. (So 3x Rare Item Codes per pack that you purchase.) According to the quest FAQ, each of these RIC's will earn you one of 40+ random spooky themed items. Update: These codes are confirmed to award the Space Faerie as a Battledome challenger, for anyone on the hunt for that.

If you complete a set of cards, then you'll receive another Rare Item Code for each of the 4 Neopets you're dressing up. The rewards from these Rare Item Codes have a 50/50 shot of being: Halloween Uni Morphing Potion, Faerie Kougra Plushie, Zombie Aisha Morphing Potion, Pirate Draik Morphing Potion. If you do not receive one of the above, you'll be guaranteed to receive a "deluxe item" worth "anywhere from 40,000 to 100,000 NP".

To help you complete sets faster without purchasing more card packs, you can also buy and sell from other users via the secondary auction house, which will be available until April 30, 2019. To use the secondary marketplace, you will need to set up your very own Ethereum blockchain wallet and use cryptocurrency to buy and sell. (You will need to convert your local currency into ETH.)

Will you be buying any virtual card packs to complete the quests? Let us know in the comments! And let us know what you received from your Rare Item Codes in the comments, too!

TNT Community Updates 18/10
  • Posted by Herdy
  • Posted on October 18, 2018, 5:48 am NST

TNT member Hardtotame has appeared again for another Q&A session, this time on the Help Chat. Here's a rundown of her answers:

Avatars

On fixing transparency issues with Stamp Avatars:

I'll talk to the art team about this.


On any additional changes to the Altador Stamp Avatar:

I read her page, and I respect her opinion. However, we will not be going back and changing the Altador stamp album avatar again.


On potential new game avatars:

We will only be releasing them if we know for sure that the game will soon be converted to HTML5.


On extending the requirements of the Rubbish Dump avatar so that the less rare, but still uncommon items qualify:

Not promising we'll change anything, but I'll look at alternatives.


Other Issues

On the idea of giving out retired Mystery Picture-only Stamps via the Mystery Picture contest again:

This sounds reasonable.


On the recent changes to rules on Guild contests, and the possibility for abuse:

This is not my jurisdiction, but we have started a discussion about the rules based on feedback we've been seeing. I'll add this point to our discussion, and see what the others think. If there are any changes to the rule, we'll have an official announcement - if not, I'll be back to chat on the Guilds board.


On TNT's current priorities:

Okay, this one took a long time to answer - I had to have a hurried discussion with our Producer, and I'm still holding back a few details because we've seen several projects scrapped in the past and I don't want to overcommit, but here goes -

Long term - moving our main features away from Flash, identifying methods/technology to use so that future releases are mobile compatible, and increasing site security

Short term projects that you can expect to see soon - a mini plot (along with a map update), and if all goes well a separate mini event even before the plot goes live. We're also looking at updates/improvements to the features you normally get for December. Then of course, there's GMC later next month.

As an ongoing project, we try to identify fixes/improvements that we can focus on each week to move the site forward


On the idea of more Neoboard pens:

The neoboards is one of those features we haven't really touched so far, so I really don't know what the team would have to say about this


On a variety of opinions about changes to the Battledome being recorded by TNT:

I have realized, as you rightly pointed out, through my own mistakes, that there is often an unrepresented side to many arguments. However, when we come out and ask for opinions, (like through the BD survey), we expect anyone who cares to respond and give us a good picture of what our user base wants. For HP increase, we've got the numbers. For other features - like the Throw Pillows one, we do have our own opinions on how we want things to work, and we will make decisions accordingly.


On Limited Edition pets not being released on their pet days:

This is a lapse on our part, sorry. For the Jetsams, we'll give you a heads up in the news and then release them the next day. Yes, Limited Edition Neopets will be available to create on their actual pet days going forward.


On the potential to have Lutaris able to be transferred:

It's unlikely we'll do that.


As a reminder, Hardtotame will be back next week on Thursday 25th October, at 5.30 PM on the Site Events Neoboard.
