This week's Beauty Contest winner: Arlonna!
A few new and noteworthy updates today in the world of Neopets NFTs. (Or should we say in the metaverse
of Neopets NFTs? 🤔)
First up, the Neopets Metaverse team is missing their launch schedule, with the NFT project failing to meet the self-imposed October deadline for release.
In a statement posted on their blog
The team is working hard and focused on finalizing the details of the project to ensure a smooth and successful launch of the Neopets Metaverse Collection NFTs. As an update, we expect the NFT sale to take place in the next few weeks. We would like to express our deepest gratitude to our many supporters and are very excited to continue building and growing our community.
Originally, their announced date for launch was "October 2021." With the announcement above, no definitive timeline has been released, leaving the project in limbo.
This doesn't seem all too surprising coming from the Neopets Metaverse team, though. They have continuously stumbled since the initial release (read back in our news feed to see), and the "roadmap" they posted for a brand new NFT-based version of Neopia has zero indication as to the timeline of completion. (As a reminder—that roadmap
, which is authored by "Neopets Inc," also claims that the Neopets brand will be decentralized, and in effect given up by JumpStart and placed in control of those who own the NFTs. Something that TNT has yet to address, or retract.)
Second, you may have seen our post about Neopets coming to Quidd
, a marketplace for digital collectibles (with the option in the future to convert them to NFTs).
As of today, we have confirmed that due to the Neopets Metaverse project, the collectibles planned for the Quidd marketplace have been put on hold, with this official statement:
Quick update on the new channel coming! While we originally thought it would be this week, due to unforeseen circumstances it has been delayed slightly.
It is still coming! And we will keep you updated as we find out more. For now we apologize for the confusion and hope to have more info for you very soon!
Later, the CEO of Quidd stated, during a Q&A period held on their official Discord server:
[in a response to another project being canceled outright] Yeah, it happens. It's a big bummer when it goes. I've seen the Charmed stuff -- it was incredible. But, sometimes licensors change their minds. In the case of the new [Neopets] channel, our partners wanted to put a little more time between another project that they dropped and our project. So, it's a delay, not a cancellation. I would say January at the latest.
We will continue to keep an eye out on this project, and update you all if it comes to fruition.
For those out of the loop or just checking in, you can read all about why Jellyneo opposes these NFT projects by visiting jellyneo.net/nfts
(and mint your own blockchain-free NFTopet!) Alternatively, click the #NoNeoNFTs banner at the top of many pages across Jellyneo.
Our stance here at Jellyneo continues to be the belief that the best course of action is to cancel all NFT projects outright, and instead focus on features and games that the Neopets community actually wants
. If contracts cannot be canceled, then we believe the second best option would be to retract the Metaverse roadmap presented and cancel the planned NFT version of Neopia.

Kudos to The Neopets Team for continuing to allow #NoNeoNFTs content into the Beauty Contest!
It's producing some great winners!

never thought i'd see a winning BC entry of a neopet bouncing it's booty in my face.
The fact that they know Metaverse is such an abhorrent project that they are actively moving other merchandise releases to avoid them getting caught in the blacklash, but can't seem to find the courage to sort out Metaverse itself is absolutely horrible.
Jumpstart CEO needs those dollars for his back pocket, clearly.
Can't help but cackle a little. They hit a snag!
Suuuuure it's "in the next few weeks"; then it'll just get delayed and delayed and delayed, so "next few weeks" becomes "next few months" and then "the project is in limbo" (i.e. cancelling it without actually _saying_ it's cancelled). We can certainly hope, anyhow!
Oh, Metaverse is delayed? Well, let's be kind, Metaverse team, you can take as long as you need. Like, how about instead of a roadmap you have all that stuff at launch, that way you can shut up those critics you oh so hate. I mean, if you have so much hope for the Metaverse that shouldn't be a problem at all. So, please, take your time, show us how much faith you have in this venture.
As for Quidd, I have a song for you: ~Let it go! Let it go!~... No, seriously, let it go. And just go. I would say find greener pastures but you're killing them off with your block chains.
they're just trying to get on the bandwagon before the bubble collapses, I was reading an article that popped up in my pocket recommendations from NY magazine that quotes financers, economists and professions that figure it's just a matter of time before cryptocurrency collapses called "Why the 'Big Short' Guys think bitcoin is a bubble, it only proves what I think about cryptocurrency and NFTs

SO funny to see that gif on the NF page
Two serious questions, please?
Will people really buy the Neopets NFTs, like are they champing at the bit waiting to purchase ?
Why would you buy one when EVERYONE can copy it?
(my jellyneo generated NFT is actually, surprisingly, artistically AWESOME!
I think for the most part, people into NFTs care about the pictures attached as much as people care about the picture of Benjamin Franklin on their $100 bill. They're buying it because they think it will increase in price (either by people who DO want to "own" the picture for some reason, or inflation of the cryptocurrency it's attached to) and they can sell it later. Hence why it keeps being called a pyramid scheme: buy it from us, you can sell it for more later! ...to somebody who thinks THEY can sell it for more, and so on
It's rare that I root for incompetence, but here's hoping they can't get out of their own way on this one.
could it be that an nft project by a bunch of randos with no business credentials... isn't going to go smoothly? shocking! lol

Neopets will be placed in control of THOSE WHO OWN THE NFT's???
This is very alarming to me!!! So they could, if they so wished, to just disconnect from the REAL Neopets' site and all the players therein attached to the game--meaning accounts just go poof!??
I would pay good money, moolah, kromer, whatever you call it, to delay it further by years. Maybe even decades
Congrats to Arlonna for winning the beauty contest with their.. statement. I am wondering how this is family friendly.. A twerking Xweetok? Is that really what we want?
The message is clear however
@katina: No, it wouldn’t extend to the site - just the brand but it’s equally as bad. Metaverse intend for the end stage of the project to go completely hands off in terms of development. That the NFT community would be able to vote on and implement whatever changes to the project they wish with no oversight by Metaverse or Neopets itself. So, those guys want Neopets to be able to breed? They can do that and it’s officially part of the Neopets brand. A crossover with adult content? No reason why not and that adult content becomes official Neopets content.
Thank you, HollyFrosty, for the info.I understand it, but really... stooped.

@apophis324 I agree. I concur with the sentiment but I'm not really keen on the...delivery method, personally. XP
October 23, 2021 2:43 PM NST
feel free to submit your own delivery method
a dancing cartoon is not family friendly lmao... talk about finding problems when there aren't any. Go clutch your pearls more.
@sweetadeline: Just saying that Neopets still pretends to portray a family friendly environment. I'm sure not all parents would appreciate it if their kids booted up the News page, only to be greeted by a dancing Xweetok butt.
It's not about the message, just the way of portraying it that I personally find less appropriate. But(t) at least it gets noticed ^^
We comment here about how we feel or what we think about the TOPIC, not what we think about the person posting. I cringed at your snide remark about @apophis324.

Wait a minute. JN, is that animation SFW and family friendly?
I have no idea how it's supposedly nsfw? Seems like something that could easily be in a kid's cartoon (especially since neopets are naked by default in a totally non-sexualized way)??
October 24, 2021 4:59 PM NST
Yeah, you're probably right, just someone pointed out that the Xwee seems to be mooning. I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder and norms change.
I can't wait to see these people fail for trying to rip a community apart ^_^
Come on guys, you're missing the point here, that xweetok twerk is the funniest thing I've seen all week (especially in the neopets.com news page, it's so big there). It's a dancing neopet, come on.
I mean if it had a butt crack or something I would say it's way more NSF.
..... Guys it's the twerking among us meme. It and twerking in general have been a funny joke to kids for a long time now. You can even find it in kids cartoons, like the modern Powerpuff girls (setting the overall quality of the show aside)

I looked up twerking among us and that was a fun little rabbit hole I just ran down. I especially like the twerking among us flags. But seriously, my kids are 4 and 6 and one of their favorite toys is a stuffed poop emoji. They like fart, poop, burp, and butt jokes. I have seen my fair share of twerking in animated movies and shows. Twerking should be treated the same as an Elvis hip thrust.

If everyone's talking about the thicc xweetok, it means the delivery method was indeed quite effective
I don't want to live in this world anymore
Sorry you had to find out this way king
Seem like the NFT market are fighting eachother at this point.
I like Xweetok butts and I cannot lie
