Hi TNT! Here are a few more head accessories that would be nice if they can be changed to static: Pastel Raindorf Antlers, Holiday Hair Bow, Flower Hair Bow, Food-Eating Monster Horns, Spring Flower Head Wreath, Ribbon Faerie Head Wreath, Fancy Purple Hair Bow, Elegant Holiday Hair Clip, Delicate Flower Laurel, Valentine Hair Accessory and Lace Headband. ~~greyfever

Hi! Thank you for sending this in! I recognize a few of these from other lists and petpages with head accessories rezoning requests. We are going to be working through the lists bit by bit (there are a LOT). Thank you so much for helping to keep our list as updated as possible! ~~Mac

Hi there! So I have a beautiful Shadow Uni, with a gorgeous purple customization built around her perfect purple horn… and then one day, out of nowhere, her horn is BRIGHT YELLOW?! So I do some research and find that this is a glitch that has been going on with Unis for at least 3 years now. Please, can you fix this so we can get our pretty Uni horns back to the way they should be? ~~noelbee

Hello! I see the dilemma… that bright yellow does not scream “shadow” now does it? :( But guess what? It should be purple very very soon! Enjoy! ~~Miss Rainbow

Hello! Could you ask Donny to fix some item images? Elderly Apple is 54x73 instead of 80x80. Refreshing Barrel Water is 36x77 and it looks like a jar instead of a thin water bottle because it's stretched... Say thanks to Donny for me! ~~petitehirondelline

Hello! Thanks for writing in : ) We handed these tasks over to Donny and wowee they were so quick to fix it up! The images for these items should now be correctly formatted as 80x80s! ~~Miss Rainbow

Hey, TNT! How is it going? I was curious, with the Altador Cup Scrapbook, it is mentioned as a gift? It looks like a beautiful book that your pets should be able to read, in order to reminisce on all the years that have passed! Maybe they want to see their favourite player? Would you think about it? Thank you so very much, and hope you take much care this AC Season! May you please leave out my UN? Thank you very much ^^ ~~Anonymous

We completely agree that you should be able to leaf through this Altador Cup Scrapbook to look back on your favourite memories of attending the Altador Cup! We just changed this item from a gift to a book, so now you can read it with your pets and reflect together on some of the best times you had at the Altador Cup! ~~Aesop

Hi, sorry this question is unusual, but I was wondering if users are allowed to have pet characters that dress in drag? Drag is not inherently [inappropriate for Neopets] and if it's done respectfully I think it would be okay but I wanted to check. I know LGBTQIA+ stuff is accepted onsite now as long as it isn't involved with romance etc, so I figured it was worth asking about as someone I know expressed interest in designing a pet character around it. Please keep this question anonymous, and thanks for your time!! ~~Anonymous

We LOVE this idea. Gender expression is super important, and we have received a lot of wonderful ideas in our pride month feedback, like an Elton John outfit, drag makeup and costumes, and more androgynous wearables. We are hoping to be able to release LGBTQIA+ wearables and items all year round, and not just in June. Keep sending us these ideas - they are incredibly creative and we love seeing them! ~~Mac

Hello! Can you recategorize Ancient Grundo Literature & Society from Book to Booktastic Book? It was released in a Booktastic Book-themed Halloween gift bag whose other prizes are Booktastic Book-themed, yet it is not categorized as a Booktastic Book. It would fit the theme perfectly, and there are so few Booktastic Books out there. Thank you! ~~777hyperkid777

Thank you for letting us know about this slip-up! Ancient Grundo Literature & Society certainly belongs on the shelves of Booktastic Books, so we've changed this one to a Booktastic Book! ~~Aesop

Hi TNT! I was wondering when we might have dates for the Altador Cup this year? Since such a large portion of the current playerbase are adults, I can't imagine I'm the only one with this issue but....I'd love to request work time off so I can spend 14 hours a day playing slushie slinger, but I need dates to do that! Soon please? ~~Anonymous

We should be starting the press tour within the next couple of days. The sign ups have been mentioned to be starting on the 25th of May. We are aiming to start the event the first full week of June. We are still working on making it the best experience that we can! Stay tuned! ~~Yarner

Hi TNT! I just wanted to reach out and say thank you for all your hard work in updating the site. I grew up alongside Neopets, and it makes me really happy every time there's a new update that allows us to use relics from the past (like updating the maps to not use Flash!), or improves functionality (like the new Neolodge book all feature! Wow!). I know you have all been working as hard as you can to get everything updated to a modern format. I can't wait until Neopia is back to its original glory (or even better!) and I'm so incredibly happy that this huge part of my childhood is still around and is a tangible website I can interact with instead of just a memory :) ~~missfiona393

Hello TNT! I just wanna say, I don't think releasing rare stamps through the Mystery Pic is a good idea. It was a bad idea back in 2002 and it still is, but for a different reason... People nowadays have lots a ways to form communities off-site and to communicate instantly with each other. So the answer to the MP is now easily shared, far more easier than back in 2002. So you are basically handing out super rare items to people who are lucky enough to be online when the MP is out and to have a friend who's going to share the answer with them. In the end, those rare items are going to be awarded to the same handful of people every week. If you want to re-release those stamps, you could find a way to make it a bit more random and fair (and keep them *rare*, please) and you could also use the opportunity to create a new NP (or item) sink in the process instead of rewarding cheaters. Thank you for considering.

Hello and thank you for writing in about this matter! As we mentioned in the news, we really appreciate all of the feedback and constructive criticism that we received about re-releasing rare stamps. We agree that the Mystery Picture Spotlight is clearly not the best way to go about re-releasing some of the rarer stamps and will not be releasing any more of them through that spotlight. That being said, we would love to find a way for collectors who joined more recently to still have a chance to complete their collection. This is something we will continue to discuss with the team, as we want to be fair to both veteran stamp collectors who have been treasuring these items for years as well as new or returning players who are looking to explore different areas of the site like stamp collection. If anyone else has ideas on more equitable ways to re-release some of the older and much rarer collectible items such as stamps, we would be happy to hear your thoughts! ~~Aesop

Hi. I think that the "Plaint Splattered Artist Outfit" should actually be "Paint Splattered Artist Outfit." :) ~~_brainchild_

Oh no! Thank you so much for catching that little typo :) We just went in and removed that extra "l"! ~~Aesop

hey guys! i've seen some good tips going around the web about what neopets could be doing better to have a real revival. do you ever go looking for constructive criticism like that for tips how to move forward? doing maintenance and bug fixes is great, but it won't kick the site back into the spotlight and get new players. i know you're working hard though! ~~Anonymous

Oh, I would LOVE to answer this one! A lot of us spend a lot of time - myself included - just hanging out and playing on the website when we’re not working. I, personally, love scouring the Ideas Board, Site Events, and anywhere I can find all that juicy feedback. It’s a really great learning experience, and I love sharing everything with the team. We all greatly appreciate it, because it shows what users like, and what you all want to see change or improve! Making more surveys or being more publicly present may be possible ways to gather topical and most-current feedback. We will continue to brainstorm different avenues for collecting feedback, but please don’t stop sharing your ideas and suggestions and constructive criticism - it’s so important to us! ~~Mac

Regarding the potential Fruit Machine Avatar: Given how few times since the Fruit Machine came into existence that I've actually managed to spin 3 Puntec Fruits, I'd think that this would make the avatar almost impossible to obtain and be extremely discouraging. Maybe it could be for anyone who manages ANY sort of match 3? That seems rare enough as it is! (Either that, or I'm just extremely unlucky!) ~~sonderbar

That is an excellent point, we really appreciate you reaching out about this. I've been playing Fruit Machine everyday for the past few years and still haven't spun 3 Puntec Fruits myself! Spinning 3 of the same fruit, regardless of the type of fruit, sounds like a much more reasonable way to earn the avatar. We are moving forward with the Fruit Machine avatar, so I will be sure to bring this idea of how to achieve it to the team as we look into setting it up! ~~Aesop

Hi Tnt! why do we only see auctions that are about to close in the main page? why can't we see all the auctions going on in the other pages? ~~Anonymous

Hello! The main page ("Auctions 1-20") is meant to display auctions that are closing soon, this is helpful for anyone who wants to grab an item before the auction ends, limiting the chance of someone to outbid them. We are currently looking into improving the Auction, making it easier to view other auctions and overall navigation. Hope this helps! ~~Sunpotato

Hi TNT! Can you please change these hair accessories items to static so we can wear them with wigs? Bitten Snowbunny Ears Headband, Golden Jewelled Tiara, Gothic Snowbunny Ears Headband, Sparkling Heart Headband, Gigantic Pink Hair Bow, Golden Horns, Spring Hair Flower and Holiday Headwreath. ~~greyfever

Hi! Nice catch; thank you for bringing this up! We have been receiving a ton of rezoning requests - for headbands and hats especially. We fixed this one, and going forward, we will keep wigs in mind when zoning hair accessories. The current list of affected accessories is substantial, but we’ll take a look and see how we can best accommodate those luscious locks on your fabulous favourite pets! ~~Mac

Hello, there is a weapon "The Scimitar of Lyra", it's a pretty interesting weapon and possibly useful for one of the user made 2player formats L54, there is a problem though, it's once per battle. This seems really odd since it's a sword, so it would make sense like every other sword it could be used multiple times in a battle. It's not particularly strong so it doesn't really fit the role of once per battle bomb either. I was wondering if it being once per battle is possibly a mistake? Thanks! ~~sss_shelly

Huh that is very odd, thank you for bringing this to our attention! Since there doesn't seem to be any reason why this sword should only be used once per battle, we had Donny go in and change it for us. The Scimitar of Lyra can now be used multiple times over the course of the same battle! ~~Aesop

is it just me or should the crumpetmongers teatime treats be categorized as neovian pastries :3c ~~hemlockes

You are absolutely right! The new Crumpetmongers Teatime Treats certainly should be categorized as Neovian Pastries. This has just been fixed so those teatime treats are now categorized correctly. Thank you so much for letting us know about this mix up! ~~Aesop

Hey TNT! Do you think you can look into and hopefully fix a glitch that has been going on for a very long time. For as long as I can remember in fact! And that is that Robot Rukis can not properly wear shoes. You can put them on the pet in customization, but they show up BEHIND the pet's feet, even when you make sure to take off the Robot housing for that area. So you can only see a tiny bit of the outline of the shoes/boots/whatever foot wear. I have a Robot Ruki who would really love to wear some shoes! ~~undeadrockstar

Hello! You know, Robots got tough feet. They’re not bothered by the hot ground on a sunny day, or slushy snow, or thorns. SO, technically they are just fine without shoes. Just kidding haha! This is now fixed hehe. Sorry for pulling your leg, but I hope you have fun customising your Robot Ruki with cute, fab, and fashionable shoes! ~~Miss Rainbow

I would really love to see a cheese colored neopet one day! Do you think this would be possible? ~~bobtheninjacat

This is definitely something we would love to do in the future! However, whenever we discuss the idea of releasing a new paint brush, there are so many great ideas and concepts for new PBs that come up it can be very difficult to decide where to start. In order to help us choose the perfect paint brushes to release next, we've been thinking about setting up some type of survey to get feedback from users about which colours they would like to see! As we are still in the initial planning stage for new paint brushes, we do not have a set date yet for when we want to start gathering this feedback. However, since new paint brushes are brought up so often, we wanted to speak up and let you know that they are certainly on our minds as well! ~~Aesop

Hand out baskets of Easter goodies. My pets would love to wear the golden cybunny ears headband for Easter, but unfortunately it can't be used over a wig and they really don't want to be bald for Easter. Could you please fix the headband so that it can be used with wigs? Please remove my un. ~~Anonymous

Ty for the goodies! And thanks for bringing this to our attention! Wearing wigs AND snowbunny ears is peak cuteness- and I like cute thigs haha! Golden Snowbunny Ears Headband is now zoned as static and can be worn with wigs, happy customising! (: ~~Miss Rainbow

Hi TNT! Now that we have more pet slots, is it possible to add a feature to book all of our neopets at once? It's tiring to repeat it 17 times especially on mobile. ~~scrmnow

I notice that there is a ton of empty guilds. I guess we have all moved on from Suite Life of Hanna Montana -no tags here-3 Kitten 4eva. Since there is hundreds of thousands of abandon guilds taking up so much database, do you think there will be a purge of guilds sometime soon? I have a feeling the neighborhoods could use a bit of decluttering. ~~thedrnewton

We have been planning on purging the empty guilds in the next couple of weeks. This should definitely help in decluttering! Thank you! ~~Yarner

Hi tnt, why is the 'about' in All about Food in all lowercase? Shouldn't the a be in capital letters? ~~domdee17

Hi TNT! Last year we didn't have charity corner. Can we bring it back this year featuring r99s for prizes like several years ago? It's time for another round =) ~~5tar

As an avid player of the Fruit Machine for almost 20 years, I'm shocked there's no avatar for it! Any chance we could see one added to celebrate one of Neopia's favorite pastimes? ~~neomaniac24757

What a wonderful suggestion! It does seem odd that such a popular neopian pastime doesn't have a single avatar related to it. We will get started on drafting one up, so be sure to keep an eye out for it! Maybe it could be awarded to users who are lucky enough to spin three Puntec Fruits? Please let us know if you have any other fun ideas for how a new Fruit Machine avatar could be awarded (: ~~Aesop

Hey TNT! New MME soon? ~~swordsforlegs

Hello! You bring up a good question. Sure we’ve had grams and capsules, but what about them MME’s? It’d be nice to release one in Summer or Fall, but no exact plans have been made! Thank you for asking though- its really got our creative gears turning ~~Miss Rainbow

Hi Tnt. I was wondering if you could give us a timeline of when we can expect new content? A few months ago you mentioned a road map for 2022 but now we're 3 months in and have heard little to no news about what you're working on? ~~catluver456

Thank you so much for the question! Yes, we are working on an updated roadmap, but there is a lot we are juggling and prioritizing since there is a lot for us to be working on.

Be assured that we are currently working on making our events look crisp and clean. In between events making updates to the quality of life for our players and working towards getting new features out this year. We will have some releases soon! ~~Yarner

Howdy TNT! We are coming up on almost a year since the last Avatar was released. Are there any plans to release new avatars soon? ~~xrckdude

Thrilled to say that we do have two new avatars that will be released this month! One of them is already available on the April Fools page, so be sure to stop by and pick yours up today!

I also want to mention we have been coming up with more avatar concepts recently (besides the two in April) and plan to sprinkle in some more regular avatar releases in the future! ~~Aesop

*Gives a Meowclops Plushie* My gallery spotlight submission was held-over two months ago, and I still don't dare add any new items to it (because you told me not to make any changes.) Given that it's a spooky gallery, do I have to wait until Halloween to see it featured, or can I add some more items to it and re-submit? please remove my username. Thx. ~~Anonymous

I’m sure you’re really excited to add some more stuff, so go ahead and update your inventory and resubmit! I’ll keep an eye out for it!

Would it be possible for a link to the neoboard preferences page to be added to the new layout? It's a pretty essential link and has been missing for over a year now. ~~cloudypoogle
