Rubbish Dump Day, Saturday, August 6th!
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on August 6, 2022, 12:00 am NST


Welcome to the 1st Saturday of the month: Rubbish Dump Day!

In April 2022, TNT updated the Rubbish Dump to increase the drop rate of "rubbish" eligible for the avatar. (And we've even seen some Hidden Tower items pop up that weren't previously confirmed as prizes!)

The Rubbish Dump is special in that items dropped there appear after a Neopian refreshes the dump. (In other words, refreshing the page gives you the chance to "donate" some rubbish to the queue.) The more people visiting and refreshing, the more rubbish dropped, and the more opportunities there are for avatar items to appear!

Starting now, and continuing all day, here's how you can gather and participate:

If you DON'T have the avatar...
  • Visit the Rubbish Dump in Meridell and refresh to generate rubbish!
  • Claim up to 8 pieces of rubbish to clear the way for more items to appear. (And make sure not to claim anything from the Money Tree or Second-Hand Shoppe... it's 10 items max from all 3 locations combined!)
  • To be safe from accidental clicks, save your last 2 rubbish claims for when an avatar item pops up. (You can claim up to 10 items from the Rubbish Dump per day.)
  • Review our guide to familiarize yourself with which items are eligible for the avatar.

If you DO have the avatar...
  • Visit the Rubbish Dump in Meridell and refresh to help generate rubbish! Even if you have the avatar, refreshing helps generate more "donations" that will show up later. (And that means more opportunities for avatar items to pop up!)
  • Claim up to 10 pieces of rubbish to help clear the way for avatar-eligible items to appear.
  • Be kind and leave the cheaper avatar-eligible items (like the Fading Bottled Faeries) for those who need the avatar! We won't mind, however, if you try sniping a Dung Catapult.

The more the merrier, so share this post with your Neofriends and guildmates!

As you participate, let us know in the comments what junk—or treasures—you've seen or picked up! And let us know if you get the avatar so we can celebrate with you.


Can't get enough rubbish? Mark your calendars and join us on the first Saturday of next month—September 3rd—for our next Rubbish Dump Day!

Neopets Responds to Site Breach
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on August 1, 2022, 3:37 pm NST

UPDATE, 5:30 PM NST: Forced password updates have returned. If you haven't reset your password today, you'll be forced to do so before logging in.

Note that MANY Neopians are having issues with password resets (there's numerous problems with the Neopets authentication system). If you're one of them, it's okay! Don't panic too much. We recommend (a) trying again in an hour or so, and if that doesn't work, (b) filing a ticket with Neopets Support. They've been quite responsive in recent months, so it's very likely you'll get a timely response.

If you are able to get through the password reset process, see our red WARNINGS below, as there are many restrictions on what you can use for your password. If you don't heed these warnings, you'll be locked out of your account.



UPDATE, 4:00 PM NST: Forced password updates have been paused. No official announcement by TNT yet, so it's unknown why they paused the forced resets, or if they'll bring them back. If you haven't visited Neopets yet today, you won't need to reset your password to get in. If you already tried resetting (and ran into issues), give your old password a shot.




In response to the recent site breach, all accounts were logged out of Neopets.com earlier this afternoon and all passwords were invalidated by TNT.

To gain access to your account again, you'll need to go through the password reset process, available at: https://www.neopets.com/account/passwordreset.phtml


As you'd expect, the reset process involves an email being sent to your account's associated email address with a special link to click. Upon clicking the link, you'll be asked to set a new password.

WARNING: Neopets passwords are limited to 20 characters. If you set a password longer than 20 characters, you'll become locked out of your account as the coding can't handle more than 20.

WARNING: The password reset box will also ask you to type in your username. Do NOT use any capital letters in your username, as the username field is case sensitive and any capital letters will fail the reset.

WARNING: You may want to use special characters in your password—don't. We've seen issue after issue with users who decide to use special characters in their passwords. In fact, TNT support is on record as saying that these characters should not be used and cause issues: & # @

(TNT, please see above for low hanging fruit to "enhance security protocols" around Neopets—you should have a bug-free and functioning password reset function.)

The password change form will also nag you about having at least 2 numbers in your password—even if you have 2 or more numbers in the new password. Ignore that, it'll let you submit anyway even if it doesn't recognize all your numbers.

We've seen a few reports of users being locked out of their account after resetting their passwords, and being asked to reset their password again. TNT is aware of this, but we at Jellyneo would recommend that you file a ticket with support if you can't get into your account within the next 24 hours. Password resets should reset periodically, so you may be able to try again shortly.

A statement about the breach was also posted on Twitter:

Neopians:

We wanted to take a moment to provide you with an update since our update on July 20th.

As we previously communicated, Neopets was alerted on July 20th to activity indicating unauthorized access by a third party to portions of our IT systems. Upon investigation, we took immediate steps to shut down further access to the affected systems and we have not seen any unauthorized activity since that time.

We reported the event to law enforcement, and began working with external cybersecurity experts to investigate the event and determine what happened and what data was impacted. As a matter of course, we do not collect or store payment information and do not have evidence that it was impacted. Once the investigation has concluded, we will share additional information, as appropriate.

Our team is working around the clock, deploying additional safeguards onto our systems, including enhancing monitoring of our systems, reinforcing our security practices, and actively reviewing systems to enhance security controls and all security protocols. As a reminder, neither Neopets or its employees will ever ask for your login information. As a precaution, we are taking steps to protect users’ accounts, so when you next visit Neopets, you will be prompted to change your password. We are also currently working on adding multi-factor authentication to better safeguard your account access.

We appreciate your understanding and patience during this event and are committed to supporting the Neopets community. We invite you to reach out to us through our normal support channels with any questions or concerns you might have regarding this incident or the security of your account.

One important aspect of the statement above is the confirmation that payment information (for Neocash or Premium subscriptions) was not included in the breach.
