What exactly do "retired" and "unbuyable" mean?
If an item is retired, it means it is no longer given out in any official shops or by any games, the only ones that will ever exist are already owned by people. If an item is unbuyable, this means it is normally too rare for the average Neopian to get hold of, unless they are extremely lucky.
What happens to your pets if your account becomes frozen? Will they be put in the pound or gone forever?
When your account is frozen, your pets, items, neopoints, shop etc. all become frozen too. They still exist, but you can't do anything with them.
What is spam neomail?
Its the unwanted junk mails you recieve from players trying to scam you or get you to do something. For example chain letters, fake staff, password scammers etc. It is unpleasant and that is why we are cracking down on people who send out this stuff as it makes NeoPets less enjoyable for everyone else.
Well you know how u do all those polls like "Should we replace the glowing p/b with another" and "If we were to bring out a console game what console should it be on" etc, if the majority of people answer "yes" do you ever actually go ahead with that idea?
Yes, we do pay attention to the results of the polls and often use them to test out new ideas that we are thinking of doing. If the reaction is positive, there is a high likelihood that we will go through with it.
Why did you take Bullseye away?
We had to take Bullseye away as it was being cheated constantly. We do plan to add a new updated version in the future, but it will not be straight away as we have a lot of other stuff to work on first. Sorry, but if you hadn't been cheating it in the first place we wouldn't have had to take it down!
Will the poor neglected Lennys ever get a make over?
Yes, as a matter of fact we are currently playing with some new ideas for what theLenny out to look like. It won't be too drastic a change, but the poor little Lenny does need a helping hand.
Why is the advent calendar only in December?
It is a Neopian tradition, the advent calendar always runs from the 1st - 31st of the month of Celebrating (December in the human calendar).
Today I looked at my purple grundo and noticed it is spotted. I never painted it. Was it always like this and I have never noticed it, or did you just recently change the looks of the purple grundo?
We recently updated it to a much more interesting shade of purple. The old purple Grundo looked a little too pink and washed out, so we added a little more colour.
I recieved a christmas doglefox from the advent calander -- but i want it tobe the regular color for the doglefox -- but there is no "Normal" or"Original" color petpet paint brush. Can I just color it what color itlooked like origianally?
You need to find out what colour the petpet was originally, and paint it that colour. You can see what colour the original Doglefox is by looking at the complete list of petpet colours. This is at the Petpet Puddle (its the link above the picture), alternatively you can click here
Can you turn your Usul into a Shadow Usul??
No, the Shadow Usul is a unique character, you cannot paint an Usul with a Shadow Paint Brush.
If you have a pet that's painted glass and you don't want it to change...is there a way?
Nope, I am afraid not,all the glass pets have now been turned into rather fetching Tyrannian versions!
When will a new story/adventure be starting, like the Lost Desert or Neopets V2 ones?
Very shortly, we just have a few things to finish up first, then the new adventure/plot line will begin.
Now that the Glass paint brush has been replaced by the Tyrannian paint brush, what happens if I have a Glass pb? Is it automatically changed into the new one, or will it be useless?
The Tyrannian paint brush is a completely new item. You will no longer be able to use the Glass paint brush to transform your Neopet, but it will be an immensely collectable item that no one else will be able to get their hands on.
What's the point of Not seeing your beautiful neopet with a invisible paint brush? I think that it should be retired. I mean when was the last time you saw an invisible Neopet?
Well duh... if you paint your pet invisible that is exactly what it will become. You won't be able to see it at all. Seriously though, we are thinking of making the invisible paint brush show a very faint version of your Neopet.
Why was the Diva Starz taken away?
Sponsor games are generally available for a limited period of time,i.e., the length of time the sponsor wishes to be promoted on the site.At the end of each promotion the game is either removed or changed intoan official Neopets game. A new version of the Diva Starz gameinvolving Usuki dolls will be available soon!
You said that Neopets merchandise would be across America. When do you expect to get to each state?
Hopefully early on this year. By mid March we plan to be in approximately 500 retail locations across America. More details of exactly what stores and their locations will be announced shortly.
What are the 4 retired paintbrushes?
There are actually 5 paint brushes that have been retired. The Electric Blue Paint Brush, Glass Paint Brush, Speckled Paint Brush, Scritchy Sketchy Paint Brush and the Lost Desert Paint Brush are now much harder to get hold of.
I already have 4 pets will I be allowed to have it as a 5th pet or will I not be allowed to create it?
I am afraid not, you need to have no more than 3 pets in order to create a Krawk.
Will you be giving the new Krawk neopet away for free like the other pets, at create a pet, or do you have to buy a Krawk petpet to get one?
No, the Krawk is a very special NeoPet and only a few people will be able to own one.
I'm extra special
My account was frozen, is there anything I can do to get it back?
Chances are that you know exactly why you were frozen and you will not get your account back. If you honestly have no idea, just email email@example.com and one of our support team will tell you. I suggest not using the 'it wasn't me it was my brother/my cousin/my friend/my goldfish' excuse as it will not get you any sympathy and we hear it hundreds of times everyday. The best thing to do is just to tell the truth, although it is pretty unlikely you will get your account unfrozen.
Whats going on with Lenny Conundrum?
Good question... *nudges Adam* What is going on?
What is the difference between a Fuzzle and an Evil Fuzzle?
Its quite simple, one is evil and one is not :)
My account was frozen for using the fruit machine, thats not fair!
Yes it is, you were abusing a bug to cheat. It is not fair to get Neopoints or items through cheating. We only froze people that had attempted to cheat the Fruit Machine over 1000 times. It is highly unlikely that anybody could 'accidentally' hit the enter button 1000 times, so no, you will not be getting your account back.
Why was there so little going on over Christmas?
Contary to popular belief, we are human too and we all had to spend some time with our families over theholidays. This meant that often there were just a handful of people working on each day, so less was added. Don't worry as we are now all back to work and you can look forward to lots of cool new stuff coming soon.
Why was the Fruit Machine taken down?
There was a bug that people were abusing, so we took it down to fix it.
Once you paint a petpet, how do you get it back to its original colour?
You need to get another petpet paintbrush and paint it again. For example if you have painted your Geb pink, you will need to get a yellow petpet paintbrush to return it to its former self.
My Neopet has been acting strangely since he found this magical gold ring... he keeps turninginvisible and talking about his 'precioussss'. What shall I do?
We at the Neopets office strongly advise that you take that ring to Mordor, the land where the shadows lie,and cast it into the fiery Mount Doom. If you don't then chances are the whole world will be plunged intodarkness by the return of Sauron.
Is there any way to back out of island training? I just cant get the codestones and I want to do the Academy training but it says you can't be doing island training as well. What do I do?
I am afraid there is no way to back out of a island training course once you have started it. I suggest using the shop wizard, auctions or trading post to look for the codestones.
What's Maraqua? Is it new? Will the city come back?
Maraqua was a very old world that got destroyed in a mysterious whirlpool. It was awfully sad as many Koi lost their homes and posessions. For now Maraqua is a deserted ruin. Who knows what may happen in the future.
If a person discarded a large quantity of 1 item will that item become more rare?
In theory yes, although I highly doubt one person will have any effect on the economy as there are so many players buying ans selling all the time.
