Rubbish Dump Day, Saturday, September 3rd!
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on September 3, 2022, 12:00 am NST

Given the recent issues with StackPath with legit players being blocked by Neopets, this month's Rubbish Dump Day is PLAY AT YOUR OWN RISK! It should be fine for you to pop in and grab 10 items to help clear some rubbish, but excessive refreshing is considered dangerous.

We hope TNT will have dialed back the needless StackPath aggression by October 1st when we'll pick back up our regularly scheduled Rubbish Dump Days.

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—October 1st—for our next Rubbish Dump Day!

To celebrate our 200th Jordle, we're mixing in some new puzzle categories! You'll find the following new categories:

  • Place - could be any part of a place name in Neopia, such as LEVER for Lever of Doom
  • Diseases & Cures - could be any part of a Neopian disease like ITCHY from Itchy Scratchies, or any part of a Neopian cure, like LOTUS from Lotus Leaves
  • Games - could be any part of a Neopian game, such as CHASE from Meerca Chase

My first thought with all the stackpath stuff was that this month's rubbish dumb clearing would be dangerous.
apophis324, September 3, 2022 1:13 AM NST
^ I thought it would be cancelled outright, just to be safe!

I'll just pop in and relieve the Dump of 10 junky food items and be on my way. Thankfully I was blessed with the avatar last month, before the stacking of the paths.

Ooh, saw a Silver Paint Brush. Tempted to take it... but that would rob someone of their avatar probability...

when I tried the rubbish dump, there were only two items there, but I took both, still hoping for the avatar, but trying to be careful too

Yeah, is StackPath still going off? Has anyone seen it?
I hadn't checked on the site since before StackPath had been happening, & because I read about it before revisiting it, I've been avoiding the site since.
I don't know if StackPath is still happening or not, period, & I'd like to not take chances - So has anyone at all seen it recently?

If the recent StackPath issues are still, I fear it won't be safe to refresh at the Rubbish Dump.

I don't think I'll do the Rubbish Dump this month; it's pretty disappointing that I'm not really playing for the reason of afraid of being blocked.

Have not seen any stackpath messages in the last 3 days

I picked up 5 junk items and got a Mortog on my 6th try. I've never even seen an avatar item before, so I think a lot of people are avoiding the dump. I'm glad I didn't run into any trouble.

What do you mean 200th Jordle? I'm only at #196
dr_tomoe, September 4, 2022 5:08 AM NST
I came by ever so often, but I didn't see any avatar items.
topaz644, September 4, 2022 10:04 AM NST
I haven't SEEN the stackpath page but today I am getting all the page errors that it brings with it. It's frustrating and now a bit scary.
claytonskitten, September 4, 2022 10:34 AM NST
I'll grab my 10 items to try and help those playing! I've got my avvie thanks to a previous JN event so good luck and godspeed!

So what *hasn't* gone wrong around here lately?
