Do the serial novels posted in The Neopian Times have to be Neopet related?
Yes, all stories, articles, comics, continued series etc HAVE to be Neopet related in some way.
How long does it usually take to decide the winner of every Site Spotlight contest? I entered a week ago, but I don't know if my site hasn't been viewed yet, or just didn't win.?
Each entry is checked by hand which can take a lot of time as we do get literally hundreds of entries a day. The best ones are saved for future use. This means there can be a bit of a delay between when you send your entry in and when it appears on the site. It all depends on how many high quality entries we have received before your entry.
What do you get in return for the Gourmet Club besides a trophy, or is that it? ?
You get worldwide renown (well among Neopets players anyway), you can boast to your friends and your Neopet earns the prestige of officially being a gourmet diner.
I am an enthusiastic Kougra owner and I use him for the battledome. You can only buy 3 kougra specific items, when will you be realeasing new battledome items for the Kougra?
We normally release pet specific items on their special day (see the Calendar) but as Kougra day is a couple of months away, we may add some more shortly.
When do you think the Neohomes will be mostly finished with all the features you plan to put on it?
I don't want to say a specific date, but they are definitely high up in our todo list. First we have a new pet and a new plot/world. Once that is under way we should be able to get back to Neohomes and gardens.
I was just wondering ... can a Neopet be blessed more than once?
Yes, as long as your Neopet has a high enough level and is lucky enough to see more than one faerie.
I have been hearing a whole bunch of rumours that you will get your account frozen if you draw a picture of Neopets, is this true?
No, not at all. For the complete explanation of what is and isn't permitted, check out our terms and conditions.
I'm glad you featured a Singaporean movie (I not stupid) at last, can we expect more soon?
Yes, quite possible. We are looking for more international sponsors (not just from Singapore).
How can Adam get away with having 5 pets, and why are their statistics so high?
Adam doesn't have time to play, he uses his account purely for TESTING purposes. Sadly testing with one level 3 Neopet isn't effective. If he didn't have the things he has on his account you wouldn't have half the games or activities on the site!
Will you tell me who is the kitty in the neocam picture? Please tell me! Who owns it??? It is so CUTE!!!?
Ahh that little grey and white blob is one of my kittens :) Her name is Sarah and she has an EXTREMELY loud purr! I bought her into the office one day and showed her the Neocam.
At Hubert's Hot Dogs, if you type codestone in the url it shows you a secret code. What does this mean?
This is a clue for a game we did a little while back. It doesn't mean anything now and the code does not earn you any points or reveal anything new.
I noticed that in people's stories in The Neopian Times, they have pics beside the story's name. Do the authors make the different images and send it with their story, or do you guys make the pics?
It is completely up to the author. If they create a picture and send it in, we will use it. If not, we will create a picture.
I have just noticed that if you are looking through your Safety Deposit Box, for items such as the retired books (GoldenShoyru Book, Locked Book, etc), they won't show up. You still have to type in the older name, why is this?
You need to take your books out of your safety deposit box before their name will be updated. The pictures will change automatically, but the names will not. To fix this, simply take the item out of your safety deposit box and then put it back in again.
Is there a way to make a pet hungry, because I can't feed my pet anymore, but I wantto win Gourmet Club!:(
No, I am afraid at the moment there is no way to make your Neopet hungry, you just have to wait.
Why is my account stuck at 2 years, it should be 28 months?
Oops fixing now! By the way, the site hasn't been around for 28 months so I don't see how your account can be that old :)
How many eyes does a Shoyru have??
Good question, we have been debating that for sometime and we finally agreed that it must have two as it is only really drawn in a side profile. That is one of the reasons we want to redraw it slightly (see above).
Two of my pets are afraid of the Christmas Doglefoxes I bought for them.Will they be afraid of ALL Doglefoxes or just Christmas ones?
It really depends on your Neopets. They may just have a phobia for Doglefoxes in cute little red hats, or it may be all Doglefoxes :)
Please can we change the picture for Flotsams. All it looks like is a fish with overgrown flippers.
Well, I don't think Flotsam owners would agree with you on this one. We are not going to be changing the Flotsams for the foreseeable future. We may be changing the Lenny and re-drawing the Shoyru (not a major change, but it looks kind of dead at the moment and needs more character), but that is it.
How many Neofriends can you have? Is there a limit?
No there is no limit, you can have as many Neofriends as you want.
I am kinda confused on one thing about The Neopian Times. I have been following the series in the Cont. Series Section for a while, and I wanted to write one of my own. Unfortunately, I don't know how! :(
Ok, basically you need to write the whole story and then send it to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your username. Try to be more original, we have so many adventure and quest stories, it would be nice to have a change now and again.
Does Krawkadon turn into Krawk the petpet?
No, Krawkadons are completely unrelated to Krawks.
I have a bone to pick... why is it that neopets has an e-mail for comments and suggestions, yet you never respond to any of them with the exception of the automated response?
Do you have any idea how many ideas, comments and suggestions we get sent? We cannot possible send a personalised reply to every single one. Instead we do read them all and act on as many as possible. The automated response is just set up so that you know your e-mail has been received and will be looked at very shortly. We do value what our players say, but the e-mails come in way faster than a team of people could ever reply to.
Are you ever going to make a Shoyru Game?
Yes, but there are many other Neopets that don't have their own games also, it's not just Shoyrus. We intend to bring out more games with some of the less featured Neopets as the main characters.
I have heard people say "I got this rare Roo Island Crystal from Roo Island, the highest bidder gets the location of Roo island". Is Roo Island a real place?
No, they are lying. The Roo Island Crystal is just a normal Battledome item that any pet can use. It is not something you get from anywhere special. Roo Island is just mentioned in a Neopedia story, it's not a place you can actually visit.
ARGHHHH! My guild messages are still disapeering and I know no one in the guild is deleting them!
It's not a bug... It is a cleansing script... With nearly 500,000guilds, and some of the guilds having 20,000+ members... our database tables were getting ridiculously huge. Older messages are now purged fromthe system periodically.
Will you'll put poems in The Neopian Times?
Do those new mutants petpets you guys designed really look like Adam? I mean, isn't that impolite and rude?
Hmpf... did you see what he said about me ?!!? It's just fun, it's ok, we always pick on each other :)
How do you know what your neomail address is? Is it just your username plus @neopets.com or you just make one up?
Your Neomail address is your username, it is not e-mail, it is only for on-site use. You can send a neomail to anyone on the site as long as you know their username (and they can receive neomails). Just type their username in the 'To' box and it willbe sent to them.
Who is Harris@neopets.com?
Last weekend one of our sponsor e-mails went a bit wacky and sent a blank e-mail instead of the proper one. This wasn't a fake staff member, aliens or anything like some of the wild rumours say, it was just an honest mistake which has now been fixed. If you were sent a blank e-mail, just delete it.
It's not fair, you show favouritism. Why do you let certain accounts have images for their names? Why can't other users have images as their names?
This is not favouritism, you used to be able to set pictures as your name, but we stopped it as people were abusing it. The only accounts that have pictures as their names were the ones that already had them there before we made the change.
