Urgent: Account Access Issues
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on November 20, 2023, 8:46 am NST

UPDATE, Nov 21st, 12:30 PM NST: Neopets has posted a follow-up to yesterday's glitches and downtime:

🚨 FEAR NOT, NEOPIANS! 🛠️ An update from the Neopets Team:

We know yesterday’s technical difficulties were stressful for our community, and we’re here to provide you all with an update. Firstly, thank you to our incredible players for their patience, understanding, and for being so vigilant.

On Monday, 20th November at approximately 8:30AM PST, we were alerted to an issue on-site where users were finding themselves logged into incorrect accounts. The site was taken down shortly after for emergency maintenance to protect our players. We remained offline while our team conducted thorough investigations and fixes.

Unfortunately, this cache error occurred as we are in the midst of upgrading our infrastructure and service provider. We can confirm that while players may have appeared in other accounts, no changes were made to accounts. We understand that this was a major concern for our players but rest assured your account remains unchanged and as you left them.

Services are now operating normally and The Neopets Team is continuing to monitor the site closely. Our system migration will be complete by 22nd November 2023. If you are still experiencing any issues, please contact our Customer Support team by submitting a ticket here: https://support.neopets.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

We truly apologise for the inconvenience and concern this may have caused. Thank you to everyone who submitted reports, and for supporting us as we worked hard to bring Neopets.com back up and running!

In short, the issues seen were a caching issue. Accounts themselves were not being accessed, so it's very unlikely that anyone would have been able to remove items, NP, or pets from your account. That being said, it was still quite a privacy invasion, as things like inventory contents and bank accounts were visible to others.

On the brightside, this issue was stemming from Neopets making efforts to upgrade their server infrastructure, so hopefully this means a speedier site with less lag and HTTP errors in the future!

UPDATE, 1:50 PM NST: As of ~1:30 PM NST the site seems to be restored for most users. Some users are still experiencing intermittent error messages, however.

If you're experiencing issues, try removing the www. from the URL, so you're just visiting https://neopets.com, for example.

UPDATE, 8:56 AM NST: TNT has turned on maintenance mode, and the site is now inaccessible, hopefully for them to get to the bottom of this issue!

Neopets is experiencing some very severe account access issues this morning. It appears that the site is returning page views from other people's accounts, allowing you to see account data that another Neopian would see, such as their site theme, pets, bank account, inventory, etc.

This began around 8:00 AM NST, and currently we're unable to find reports or prove whether someone can do something to your account if they see your data. For example, we can't verify whether someone can take Neopoints out of your bank account if they can see your bank account and balance.

In addition to seeing account data from other Neopians, random pages seem to be coming back as 404 not found or redirecting you to another page instead. (Personally, I can't access the Quest Log this morning—it keeps redirecting me to a password reset page for someone else's account of all things.)

We'll be monitoring the situation this morning and keep this post updated.

Happening to me right now, can't access anything on their accounts though! Just shows me logged into theirs but still all my info (bank, inventory, settings, etc)
neocoladude, November 20, 2023 8:48 AM NST
This used to happen to me like once every year or so, and it freaked me out big time as a kid. It's definitely happened a few times after conversion, too, and I'm PRETTY sure it maybe even happened once or twice since JS took over. Wild to see this happening to EVERYONE all at once, though...
apophis324, November 20, 2023 8:52 AM NST
Oooh, a new problem~! I don't think I have encountered it yet.. but it's quite silly for such a thing to happen, is it not?
apophis324, November 20, 2023 8:57 AM NST
Aaaaand sudden maintenance~! Couldn't complete my daily quests yet.. Hope I can do that later then..?
zoeyaugust1245, November 20, 2023 8:57 AM NST
Aaaaaand now it's down for maintenance
supermodel, November 20, 2023 8:57 AM NST
Down for Maintenance now. Hopefully it gets sorted out!
twistedlittledreamer, November 20, 2023 8:58 AM NST
right now when I try to go to the Neopets homepage, I'm getting the red Pteri message that the site is down for maintenance, so they must be trying to fix it
alkseeyakc, November 20, 2023 8:58 AM NST
I was trying to feed my pets, refreshed because I forgot who I fed, and saw a whole nother theme and pets. I was like, What is happening, and I am uncomfortable that they are walking around with over 3mil np on hand. XD
I'm not touching touching anything in respect. I'll just come back to Neo when things are fixed
lampofnight, November 20, 2023 8:58 AM NST
I just encountered this issue while going to the Neoboards – I suddenly saw a Xweetok as the main and it was WEIRD. Also I couldn't access the Petpages where I get Turmy and Food Club info. Hope they get it fixed soon!
duckie42, November 20, 2023 8:59 AM NST
I thought it was just me. I freaked out and changed my password and pin. I hope they get it fixed soon.
dave - JN Staff, November 20, 2023 9:00 AM NST
@lampofnight: My FC betting page was also a 404 😭

Very odd set of issues.
clowncow, November 20, 2023 9:00 AM NST
Just to offset some concerns, I attempted to deposit neopoints in the bank when it was showing me in someone else's account and got an error. I don't think anyone discovered a way to exploit it before tnt took the site down.
winter_turtle, November 20, 2023 9:01 AM NST
This happened to be twice this morning. I was so surprised to see another users information on the side but when I clicked "inventory" it always re-set back to mine.

Kinda scary! I hope it get fixed soon.
bacs91, November 20, 2023 9:01 AM NST
I didn't even notice. I was attempting to purchase an Emerging from the Symol Hole Foreground from the Igloo Garage Sale when it went down for me. I don't think I got the purchase, but I'm not even sure if I was in my account at the time, either.
cuchatenador_, November 20, 2023 9:02 AM NST
"The Site is Currently Undergoing Scheduled Maintenance"
Ha, scheduled, sure. Hopefully they can work it out soon!
mysticme23, November 20, 2023 9:03 AM NST
I have two screen shots if it is needed for anything - i saw two different peoples accounts. I had been on neoboards to ask a question and then was trying to deposits np in bank -- it wouldn't let me. then I looked at the screen more closely and noticed that it wasn't mine because I didn't have anywhere near that many np.
missko519, November 20, 2023 9:05 AM NST
I have a couple screenshots of the what pages caused me to be booted into other users accounts. I will also say that while I could the other users username, main pet, NP and NC amounts; I wasn't able to actually *access* any of it. It would redirect me to my stuff or I would get an error.
faellie_ridiculous, November 20, 2023 9:06 AM NST
I did most of my dailies earlier, but I was still logged in and had the BD page open and it just suddenly turned into the Red Pteri message page when I clicked battle.

Maybe the frozen 60k bot cabal is to blame? Payback? Probably have nothing better to do with their lives.

Are they going to make us change our pws, pins, verify our emails, etc. again now? Sheesh.
remy, November 20, 2023 9:07 AM NST
I've kept the UNs of everyone I got a window in to, so crazy when my other-halfs account appeared as one of them. Thankful we pin protected all actions. I don't think I've ever seen a glitch like that on anything before, user account security and privacy totally out the window. Wild.
darlingsenpai, November 20, 2023 9:07 AM NST
hope they can get this sorted, do you know if it's just bank account and inventory data or if more sensitive data was visible to others?
biediep, November 20, 2023 9:07 AM NST
I haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary all day, but that sounds scary o_o
whiffet, November 20, 2023 9:07 AM NST
I was working through my quest log no problem, changed a customization a lil bit, tried to click to go to the homepage where all your pets are lined up so I could see it better (used an item that isn't visible on the customization editor yet) and it thought I was trying to reset my password. Then I tried again, and that time it showed me someone else's homepage with someone else's pets. Very unnerving! I hope it's an easy fix and it doesn't happen again as soon as the site comes back.
elontusk, November 20, 2023 9:09 AM NST
Damn I was in the middle of quests when my site theme changed and suddenly my kau neopet was an aisha! I hope I didn't do anything or spend money on their account while i was doing the daily quests....
sbjorklund, November 20, 2023 9:11 AM NST
So I don't know if this was a part of the glitch, but it asked me to renew my premium, and I did without thinking! But it should have been on autorenew! So crap!
tsadadey, November 20, 2023 9:12 AM NST
I think it's probably just TNT working on stuff and making a mistake somewhere.
deadchialiveson, November 20, 2023 9:13 AM NST
dang, I did not experience that issue with the account switching, but wow, it makes you wonder what the heck is TNT doing that affected the site all of a sudden
brandily, November 20, 2023 9:17 AM NST
I was trying to do my dailies, went to the bank to collect interest, clicked collect interest immediately without realizing it wasn't my account. It was stuck trying to process the collecting, so I don't believe we can do anything to the accounts we saw.
scr3wdriver, November 20, 2023 9:21 AM NST
have not seen any of this today but sure sound stuff of nightmares ... but yeah that is why i put a pin on everything and hope it did the trick .
chanty, November 20, 2023 9:25 AM NST
Neopets always surprises me... in a negative way
apophis324, November 20, 2023 9:26 AM NST
If this makes me miss my daily quest streak, I do hope they compensate me for it..
purplebin, November 20, 2023 9:26 AM NST
Wow, I was doing a bunch of stuff this morning with no problem, then took a break for breakfast and stuff for a while, and I missed all of this completely! Came back to the Red Pteri.
kira_themermaid, November 20, 2023 9:27 AM NST
My first thought was confusion cause went from premium to having a banner in the middle of my screen, but the main page I was seeing the issue was the inventory, which was still my inventory with some one else's pet and theme, but just in case moved all my stuff to SDB and Pin locked everything
mysticme23, November 20, 2023 9:30 AM NST
I will also add.. when i tried to go to the pet page where you see all pets -- it told me to see this page you must log out and reset password. i told it to send password reset email. But i never got it. I keep seeing people say they had or were adding a pin -- can anyone tell me a little more about that?
kyrette, November 20, 2023 9:33 AM NST
Upcycle cookies hadn't been awarding NC for these past couple of days, I hope they're fixing that too.
zoeydragon, November 20, 2023 9:33 AM NST
Hope everything gets fixed and that they also fix my missing pet slot issue that happened to a side account of mine even if it ends up refunding my 500 NC on the side that it happened to or it gives me the pet slot then fine if nothing can be done then will be really disappointed
diffendur, November 20, 2023 9:35 AM NST
It happened to me, I almost had a heart-attack when I suddenly was in someone else's account, with 11 million neopoints on hand, no less. I immediately closed the tab and when I got into the main page again i was back into my account.
purplebin, November 20, 2023 9:36 AM NST
I'm so glad I missed out on panicking over my account, or doing anything stupid.
Hmmm, now I have to find something productive to do instead.
galux1616, November 20, 2023 9:41 AM NST
when i noticed the glitch i immediately went to the bank to deposit my on-hand NP and almost died when it said i didn't have a bank account, only to realize it was someone else's account. Refreshed and I was in someone else's bank and was able to see their balance before I finally got to mine to make the deposit before the site went down
snowfallkahlan, November 20, 2023 9:41 AM NST
Phew, I'm not gonna lie, I panicked a bit when all of a sudden I could see a different account. I thought my account was being hacked somehow. The fact that it's sitewide makes me feel much better.
fluffingaroundthetop, November 20, 2023 9:42 AM NST
dangit, i didn't get to do anything yet today! >_> hoping this is resolved soon!

i wonder if this is like the issue steam saw a few years back - it didn't actually grant usage to other people's accounts i don't think, it just cached different people's logged-in versions of things like the homepage by mistake and sent those versions to many, many more people.

so if multiple people saw the same account, and maybe especially if the account was different per page, that might back up this theory. the slight irony is that logging in to "protect" your own account meant possibly opening it up to being cached and displayed as well, so it's good neo went down.
psychopath, November 20, 2023 9:47 AM NST
I was trying to do the last training session to get my pet to level 250. I just hope my pet is still there. My UC too. Didn't have many NP to lose.
monsterhorse, November 20, 2023 9:59 AM NST
I had several pages open at once with only one page repeatedly showing other accounts and not letting me leave my inventory page no matter what I did. I closed the page that was glitching and none of the other pages I opened ever glitched.

However I did start checking my all my stuff before they took the site down for maintenance and there is roughly 2 mil missing from my bank account. It did indeed appear to be my account and not someone else’s. This page was not glitching and all the rest of the info matched. Just not the amount.

Can stolen neopoints be tracked, or is it true that you can get items returned but you will never get neopoints returned? Or is it likely the incorrect number was still a part of the glitch?
adventurer262, November 20, 2023 10:05 AM NST
boy do I love playing on neopets dot com
asinglemagpie, November 20, 2023 10:14 AM NST
Crikey, and I thought I was going to have a nice quiet Monday
nashie363comesback, November 20, 2023 10:16 AM NST
Thanks for the update. It is always disconcerting when the site goes down
dave - JN Staff, November 20, 2023 10:19 AM NST
@fluffingaroundthetop: This is the theory some of us at JN are thinking--problems with the caching of requests on the Neopets web servers.

Too many coincidences in what people are seeing on high traffic pages (e.g. two folks seeing each other's accounts while BOTH playing Solitaire, or seeing other's bank accounts), along with other, more unique actions not having the issue (e.g. purchasing an item from someone's shop, very unlikely anyone else is doing that same exact thing to share the cache).

It's also looking very unlikely that anyone was able to actually *DO* something with the NP, items, pets, etc. on someone's account.

Still a pretty big deal that the account data was visible to someone else, but probably nothing actually getting stolen.
jordannicole9311, November 20, 2023 10:22 AM NST
Anyone with website code knowledge know about how long it could take to fix? Surely not days... Maybe a few hours? It is great to see how quickly TNT acted though! I was on about 4am NST and got a few dailies done, but then fell back asleep.
galifan, November 20, 2023 10:26 AM NST
Nice of them to promote the recommended fan sites.

mavegibson, November 20, 2023 10:28 AM NST
@dave - I hope that means that since I wasn't online at the time, my account won't have been affected!

This is so scary. I hope everyone's accounts are safe!
_rodeo_, November 20, 2023 10:30 AM NST
I was on early this morning & didn’t have any issues! Kind of glad I missed it.

Guess I’ll actually clean my house today
dave - JN Staff, November 20, 2023 10:31 AM NST
@mavegibson: If that's correct--big IF since we're just speculating based on what behavior people have been reporting--then yes, if you weren't online at the time, your account data would not have been visible.

You would have had to be online visiting pages across Neopets during the issue in order for your data to be cached and then shown to someone else.
catastrophe, November 20, 2023 10:34 AM NST
Welp, it was a good thing I was away & wasn't able to log on to Neo today. Now that I am home, I was looking forward to doing my dailies & my quests. Hopefully things will be up & running later so I can get those done.
nashie363comesback, November 20, 2023 10:35 AM NST
I was on early -- I just saw a post when it started happening but then my brother came over and got detracted but I never logged out.
paprikachopp, November 20, 2023 10:36 AM NST
When will they fix this problem? ...
plastic_lite, November 20, 2023 10:37 AM NST
I wake up really late generally, and went to go refresh the pages I normally do all my dailies on, and oop, Red page. I had two days left of daily quests for my prize, I hope that if it's down long that they compensate us for losing our streak on the daily quests.
gracefulmaniac84, November 20, 2023 10:46 AM NST
I can confirm this as I was one of the first to experience and report the issue. I was trying to get to my inventory and was taken to the Pets page of two different premium users. I had full access to the account and it showed all their NP and NC and I could click around (because I was trying to desperately scramble out of this). It never took me to a login page, I was just dropped in. I reported it immediately to TNT. I'm hoping other users chose to do this rather than to take advantage. All the love!
charpyper, November 20, 2023 10:48 AM NST
I hope I can do my daily quests later, I'm 3 days away from a Krawk
vellen_, November 20, 2023 10:55 AM NST
This has happened a few tines before in the past years. They always fix it and suggest passwords get changed. I suggest adding the 2FAS step, it's very easy to use.
vellen_, November 20, 2023 10:59 AM NST
I don't recall there being any issues of stolen np or nc etc with the previous similarly glitched situations. Just that it was a look at cached information. I hope that helps
sunkistjello, November 20, 2023 11:01 AM NST
...is it wishful thinking to hope they re-release the Neopocalypse avatar at the end of this depending how long the fix takes hope that everyone who encountered this before the downtime will be all good when the site comes back up!
mavegibson, November 20, 2023 11:05 AM NST
@sunkistjello - A true Neopian, thinking of the avatars!!
imlostnthought, November 20, 2023 11:07 AM NST
I missed it completely so I doubt anyone saw my account but now I want to know what judgments they had about me from my pets and inventory
elgindrake, November 20, 2023 11:14 AM NST
I was redirected to reset the password for kiraatwood but I got the Maintenance Tunnels message when I refreshed.
sloppie12, November 20, 2023 11:25 AM NST
Same!! Glad I was able to get my daily quests done in the wee hours - hoping that we don't get a week/prize reset for some reason
evil_flying_unicorns, November 20, 2023 11:31 AM NST
I'm just hoping they have it back online before food club results
yekith, November 20, 2023 11:35 AM NST
Oh, good thing I got everything done early after midnight! I wasn't online to experience the problems.

I've had that happen (seeing other people's stuff) some previous time years ago though, and it definitely freaks you out!
purplebin, November 20, 2023 11:37 AM NST
If the theory is correct, then no one saw any of my account information. I also managed to get my daily quests done, so I'm not too anxious about it.
bazjack344, November 20, 2023 11:39 AM NST
Huh, I've been bopping back and forth between classic games, NeoQuest II, shopping, and Neggsweeper all day with no problem. Glad they are fixing it for those who are having problems, though.
nashie363comesback, November 20, 2023 11:45 AM NST
As far as I know no one was able to actually do anything except someone on reddit said they caught a transfer in progress of their UC Tyrannian Krawk. Does anyone know if this was possible?
witchcrafted, November 20, 2023 12:09 PM NST
Very unnerving watching it happen this morning in real time... what was especially odd to me was that specific accounts kept reappearing for myself and others (according to the board on site events)...
drougy, November 20, 2023 12:10 PM NST
I'm hoping for a neo apocalypse 2 avatar tbh
ultimatekai123, November 20, 2023 12:16 PM NST
Oh weird - I didn't experience this at all this morning and I was online quite a bit right before the maintenance message popped up. I guess I got lucky. Kind of scary though!!
kyrette, November 20, 2023 12:16 PM NST
It's still down? :o
purplebin, November 20, 2023 12:20 PM NST
This feels like something that won't be fixed quickly.
neolikepets, November 20, 2023 12:20 PM NST
4 hours and still down. Something must have *really* broke.
bedomi, November 20, 2023 12:20 PM NST
same @apophis324
fantasygirl23, November 20, 2023 12:31 PM NST
Never had any problems or saw strange things. Was online not long after it went down for maintenance.

asinglemagpie, November 20, 2023 12:39 PM NST
It all depends on how many people they have to work on it, when they start work (accounting for timezones, and if they do or don't have people on payroll to react to emergencies any hours of the day), and how much damage was done to accounts.

Assuming, temporarily, that it's a big ol' mess and pets, items, and currency have found their way to the wrong places, then they may have to track this back to the start of the glitch and roll everyone back - and then check that it rolled back correctly, before letting anyone back on.

Assuming, temporarily, that nothing was truly compromised then it still could take a good deal of time to figure out how it happened and stop it happening again.

Hopefully whatever has happened, or will happen, has minimal negative affects on active players, and we can all get back to it as soon as possible.
claytonskitten, November 20, 2023 12:46 PM NST
3:45pm NST and I still can't access the site. Hopefully this doesn't mess up quests or Trudy too badly!
resplendeo, November 20, 2023 1:01 PM NST
Man, does Neopets have a social media account I can refresh?? I wanna keep playing...
contessa, November 20, 2023 1:11 PM NST
Just checked - 4 pm EST/1 pm NST - and still the Red Pterie banner.

I was on earlier this morning when it started happening, wish I had thought to take a screenshot. I had clicked on a pet page I had bookmarked and got 9he 404 message. Then I clicked on the Games room and someone else's account page popped up. It was pretty freaky, so I immediately went to the site events board and someone had just said that it had happened to them. I posted, then went back to the Games room and it happened again, but a different other user than the first time.

That was when I decided to logout and try to come back later. Yep! I will definitely be changing my pws and PINS when the site is up again.

ashtonavocado, November 20, 2023 1:14 PM NST
this has made me very glad i picked up a shift today and did all my dailies at 1am nst before work
dusk, November 20, 2023 1:22 PM NST
I may had been online around ~1am NST (3am my time) but this would explain why the site's been under maintainence even while I was on break at work (noon my time), and still at 2 my time.

Would've been nice to know it was for holiday preps and not this, ugh...
darlingsenpai, November 20, 2023 1:22 PM NST
i'm gonna be so mad if my dailies get rolled back, i just got my sleep ray weekly reward this morning before the site went down
kyrette, November 20, 2023 1:25 PM NST
What to do while Neo is down?

I was on a side about to paint a pet...
woodstocki, November 20, 2023 1:25 PM NST
I did my daily quest log early this morning and have one day to go on a Draik trans potion... I hope everything will still be in my account and I get my potion tomorrow. I hope my account wasn't affected in any way, from what I read it shouldn't be. Fingers crossed.

I also hope they fix it soon and thoroughly.

Even if nothing has been stolen from accounts, it's still a big liability to have others be able to have a look at your account and possibly see whether it's worth hacking or what your birthday is.
woodstocki, November 20, 2023 1:26 PM NST
*what your birthday and email is.
kutie_piii, November 20, 2023 1:28 PM NST
1:28 NST the site is back up!

For some reason, petpages will load if you remove "www" from the URL

Lots of "An error occurred while processing your request." for me at the moment.

Most of it seems to be working, but I did get quite a few errors.
shadowblessing, November 20, 2023 2:21 PM NST
All pages of the site work if you remove "www." from the URL
shadowblessing, November 20, 2023 2:26 PM NST
All on-site links are now "www."-less... for some reason.
faellie_ridiculous, November 20, 2023 2:27 PM NST
I refreshed the Maintenance Pteri page I left open this morning and it took me back to the BD. I was able to battle, earn the np and prizes with no glitches. I signed out not to tempt fate.

I remove the "www." as @shadowblessing mentioned and it worked for me.
asinglemagpie, November 20, 2023 2:37 PM NST
Can confirm taking off the www works - once you're on site you're alright except for a few links which haven't been updated to remove the www. I wonder if it'll be a long term change.
twistedlittledreamer, November 20, 2023 2:48 PM NST
thanks for the tip, I was able to get the homepage to load by removing the www as I got the error as well
frogz2003, November 20, 2023 2:51 PM NST
Thank You for this update!! I was freaking out thinking the worst, like 'how do i send in a ticket if i cant access the page???UUUUGGGHH.' lol Muchly appreciated Info! Thanks again
elgindrake, November 20, 2023 2:53 PM NST
I'm in my account but PetPet pages aren't loading: "Give me a 4! Give me an 0! Give me another 4! What's that spell?"

See https://www.neopets.com/~FirstSplendor

Freaky! I tried to log into my side account at 2 pm NST and the jscript button seemingly couldn't process the log in, then I close my browser, reopened it and I was logged into my side account. Then I went here to see if perhaps Neo was down only to learn this!! O_____O

It reminds me of a very similar incident it once happened to me a long time ago (perhaps in 2009 or 2010) during the Viacom ownership. I was browsing the NC Mall when I noticed I had another user's name and NC amount. But this was affecting only the NC Mall section, not the ''standard'' pages like inventory or bank where my username was showing.
I remember the person answering my ticket saying "This is only a caching issue" so I shouldn't worry (of course by then I had already changed my pw).

While similar, this new problem seem much more worrisome as people can look into one's sensitive data.
I wasn't around when it happened, so from what you guys gathered I should be safe, but I'm afraid my sister was online at the time O_O and perhaps didn't notice, and I cannot reach out to her now.

Everything is working for me, all bookmarked pages work
kemerlei, November 20, 2023 3:09 PM NST
Anyone know how to work all sending a score for games?
yekith, November 20, 2023 3:17 PM NST
Sending scores will be impossible unless they REALLY fix the site so it loads with www again. For months I've been twlling people NOT to load the site by typing neopets.com cause that doesn't add the www and it's what makes converted games not load and flash games not send score.

So yeah...impossible right now, sorry. Games won't work without www.
yekith, November 20, 2023 3:22 PM NST
Ok. I managed to access the site WITH www by first going to the NC mall (I only did cause my language had gone back to spanish), then going back to the main page from there.
asinglemagpie, November 20, 2023 3:26 PM NST
The site seems to be working with www again for me too, but not all links all the time lol.
kyrette, November 20, 2023 3:45 PM NST
NC from Upcycles is still not being awarded.
queerious, November 20, 2023 4:19 PM NST
It's working for me, but incredible slow, we'll see how much they destroyed their servers today...
phils99, November 20, 2023 4:29 PM NST
getting a 404 on ALL pet pages, www trick does not work.
yekith, November 20, 2023 4:36 PM NST
The site in general is working WITH www for most people. Pet pages give you 404 unless you take that out (make sure you only take the www. out)
nobody, November 20, 2023 4:42 PM NST
Now everyone can see how broke I am.
harperhug, November 20, 2023 5:31 PM NST
A lot of pages are working even with www. The only exception seems to be pet pages (as far as I can tell)
cherriterri, November 21, 2023 3:33 AM NST
With the Faerie Festival, Halloween, Birthday and the Quest Log, each getting the site more and more glitchy...


This is how viacom broke TNT - doing coding updates and trying to do the advent calendar.
kaimactrash, November 21, 2023 5:47 AM NST
lost my daily quest streak bc the site went down *right* as I was gonna claim my last daily quest. rip.
dzufiasta, November 21, 2023 6:16 AM NST
Lost all my streaks... Like really?
Because I live in Europe and need to sleep before work? And the site was off for me the whole day?
shadowblessing, November 21, 2023 7:20 AM NST
The www version of the site is working for me again!!
fantasygirl23, November 21, 2023 8:55 AM NST
Everytime I go to a different page it sends me to www.neopets.com so annoying.
nataliea, November 21, 2023 9:18 AM NST
removing the WWW for neopets.com to visit petpages didn't work for me and now my pets are stars on the hub site
sentehisshou, November 21, 2023 9:46 AM NST
has TNT said anything about what happened?
purplebin, November 21, 2023 10:19 AM NST
Yeah, removing the www. from pet pages no longer works and sends you back to the main site page.
At least I can still get in to edit the Turmaculus guide, though.
metalmario1337, November 21, 2023 10:44 AM NST
Does anyone have the foodclub string for Garet/Boochi_target
mazinglez, November 21, 2023 10:48 AM NST
I would honestly be fine if they postponed all site events so they could just focus on fixing the site and modernizing the foundation. They're clearly struggling with the old infrastructure
inusfan, November 21, 2023 11:13 AM NST
Boo, that's unfortunate, ended up losing my trudy streak and weekly quest streak because of it, only had like 1 day left too.
fakeplastictease, November 21, 2023 11:29 AM NST
some petpages are still down. like my fc bet page but also my pet with a blank page isn't displaying. is it all of them?
premium17, November 21, 2023 11:41 AM NST
Why would you lose trudy and weekly quest streak ?
shadowblessing, November 21, 2023 12:15 PM NST
My neopets are stars, my active neopet is a gear, and petpages don't load. Everything else seems to be working fine.
Erasing the "www" from the URL now redirects me back to the www version (of the same page)
purplebin, November 21, 2023 12:22 PM NST
Well, at least it looks like things are being worked on. It's obviously not going to be an easy fix.
meer, November 21, 2023 12:38 PM NST
Is the site completely down now, or is it just me? No pages will load at all, not even getting a 404 or down for maintenance, just.... nothing. I get "The connection has timed out"

Amen mazinglez!! They REALLY need to just get the basics working and update the infrastructure before trying to do ANYTHING else!! I don't know why they don't just do this. >.>

premium17: Uh, because if you don't do those every day it resets?

I'm kicking myself for not at least doing the essential dailies earlier today!!
meer, November 21, 2023 1:15 PM NST
Okay never mind! Heh, it was just a problem on my end! XD

So yeah Neopets is working, mostly fine, for me. But petpages still give 404, which means I can't do FC for the second day in a row!

Long shot, (cuz time's almost up!) but I'm with metalmario1337, anyone who can get pepages to load, go too /~Boochi_Target and tell us Garet's FCNC string! We'd really appreciate it!!
yekith, November 21, 2023 1:20 PM NST
Are pet pages working for ANYONE though?
yekith, November 21, 2023 1:27 PM NST
Aren't today's bets these, posted on the pet's lookup instead?

yekith, November 21, 2023 1:35 PM NST
Oh I know what happened. They forced www, which was a great decision. A lot of people load the site by typing neopets.com and it ended up without www, which made games not load or send score.

Problem is, they maybe don't know pet pages were only working without www since yesterday...

Now there is not way to force no www.
meer, November 21, 2023 1:45 PM NST
Oh you are a life saver, yekith! Got my bets in just in time!

Hehe, I didn't think to look on the lookup! XD

Oh yeah that makes sense. Hope they can find a way to fix petpages soon. But at least for now we can use petlookups for important info like Food Club bets. XD
pecan, November 21, 2023 3:44 PM NST
Ever since this happened, I've been having trouble loading pet images.
yekith, November 21, 2023 4:07 PM NST
Yeah, images are failing a lot. My pets were giant until this morning, now all cogs.
breezydreams, November 21, 2023 8:33 PM NST
Interesting. Just accepted a Pet transfer, and saw the Pet image with no BG, as usual. Customized the Pet and saved. Now it shows a new one for me: Pet image is broken text symbol in top left corner, with a big, bold text name (centered, top, initial capitalization) between a full custom image and a cog.
galifan, November 21, 2023 10:36 PM NST
Is there a way to access petpages?
apophis324, November 21, 2023 11:48 PM NST
"...so hopefully this means a speedier site with less lag and HTTP errors in the future!"
Pshf, yeah right XD
lampofnight, November 22, 2023 1:31 AM NST
Well, I can't access Petpages now, and all my pets are currently represented by giant stars. Oh dear.
roshchodesh, November 22, 2023 4:11 AM NST
My "Cog Pet" vied in the Battle Dome. Kinda cool
cutemewgirl, November 22, 2023 7:06 AM NST
When will we be able to access petpages again?
inusfan, November 22, 2023 9:26 AM NST
@premium17 because I wasn't able to access the site that day.
galifan, November 22, 2023 11:11 AM NST
Thanks to a HC post... you can edit your pet's homepage -- without changing anything -- hit the Preview button and view your own petpage. Doesn't work with anyone else's petpage though. Hope TNT finds a fix soon!
nataliea, November 22, 2023 11:19 AM NST
"My "Cog Pet" vied in the Battle Dome. Kinda cool "
Sounds like you send missingno into a battle

My pet images are just returning!
My pets where stars 10 minutest ago and now I hage my bb back
coolkaius, November 22, 2023 11:58 AM NST
Petpages still aren't loading, instead returning 404s, so hopefully they are working to fix this ;n;
sentehisshou, November 22, 2023 12:20 PM NST
"Services are now operating normally" except for all petpages, lol.
purplebin, November 23, 2023 9:34 AM NST
I can see all the pet pages again!!
shadowblessing, November 23, 2023 12:28 PM NST
Petpages are up for me too!!
chaosshadow, November 24, 2023 2:42 PM NST
Seems like the site is loading much more efficiently now, too.
