Will you be changing all the Christmas paint brushes to year 3 versions?
No, only the ones that don't look too seasonal such as the old Bruce and the old Gelert. There may be one or two others that will change, but most of them will remain the same.
When do the Smuggler's get hold of new stuff?
This all depends on what washes to shore on Smuggler's Cove.
How do I cook Asparagus?
Its really easy, just chop off the very ends of the Asparagus (the bit that looks sort of wood-like), pop them in a saucepan and boil then for about 5 minutes. You can also steam or grill them. Mmmmmm Asparagus!
I have seen the Neoquest plushies on the news page, how do I get hold of one?
Jahbal, Faleinn and all the other Neoquest plushies are on sale in the normal toy shop. They are just extremely rare so are quite hard to get hold of.
How do I get my Neopet in the Pet Spotlight?
To earn fame and a shiny trophy for your Neopet, you just need to email a short piece of text (about three paragraphs) explaining why your Neopet is so special to email@example.com. Remember to include your username, pet's name and a picture of yor Neopet if possible.
Why don't American restaurants have vinegar on the tables?
We aren't sure about this one, but it would be a welcome addition!! Vinegar is great on chips,and better for you than tomato sauce or sour cream (YUCK!).
Why are collectable cards changing all the time?
Some of the artwork / concepts / descriptions on the older cards were done a long time ago, and theyaren't as good as they could be. We are phasing out the older ones as we introduce new charactersinto Neopets. Eventually when all 292 (I think thats the right number) are their final versions (and we have done about 150 of them so far) we will start adding new ones!
Why is there so much asparagus on the site?
Because it just tastes so good! Seriously, tonight just ask your mum to cook some for you, you willbe suprised! Boiled or steamed is best, maybe with a bit of mashed potato and gravy. Mmmmmmm!
My friend told me that his cousin said that Coltzan's Shirne gives out 1,000,000 Np at 3:00 a.m. EST or 12:00 a.m. PST and NST. Does it really give it out a 3:00 a.m. or is it 1 in 6 million? Or is it at a different time?
There is no definite way to win 1 million Neopoints, but the time of day you visit Coltzan's Shrine does affect your reward.
Is the secret tower and the hidden tower the same thing because I look every where and found only the hidden tower?
That is because there is no such thing as the secret tower, only the Hidden Tower exists and thatis somewhere in Faerieland.
If Neopets was created in England by two English people, why is NST American time?
Because in April 2000 we relocated the Neopets office from the UK to the USA. It just made sense to have NST be the same as the office, servers etc. We will be doing more things that are for other time zones in the future, so you won't have to stay up til 6am to get a chance to battle every opponent.
Can you steal items from other playes in the battledome if you use Sticky Hands?
Sticky hands sometimes let you borrow another players item to use against them in a battle, but you do not get to keep that item permanently. It is just for the duration of the battle.
When the Gelert is Changed, will the Faerie Gelert etc. be changed too?
Yes, all the Gelert colours and shopkeepers will be updated.
Can we feed our Petpets?
No, feeding petpets is something that your Neopet takes care of.
Are the things the Island Mystic says true?
Considering he has been known to say some pretty crazy fortunes such as 'you will be trampled by a herd of wild Monoceri', they probably aren't all that reliable :)
I bought a concert ticket, but I forgot to go to it, what should I do?
You can either sell your ticket to someone else, or wait until that band is playing again. When the band plays again, you can go and see them using the ticket you have just bought.
Is there a hidden place where you buy paint brushes?
Nope, I am afraid this is just another rumour, there is no secret place you can get paint brushes from. The only way you can purchase a paint brush is if a player is selling them in their shop.
How do you know if your story has been published in The Neopian Times?
If your story is published, you will recieve a trophy for your cabinet. We do not email/neomail everyone who gets published as this would take forever. The best thing to do is just check each new issue. If your story, guild, adventure etc hasn't gone up within two weeks of sending it to use, chances are it will not be published. Sadly we cannot publish everything that is sent to us.
For the Pet Spotlight, are you allowed to win more than once?
Strictly speaking no, as we have so many entries it wouldn't be fair to give the position repeatedly to the same person. Although, if an individual has put in a lot of effort, an exception may be made.
In the chat boards, whats the difference between Chat Mode and Normal Mode?
Normal Mode shows all the messages that have been posted on the board, which can get rather long and slow to load. Chat Mode shows you only the most recent posts so it is easier to keep track of a conversation.
What is the Grundo Warehouse and where can you get the secret codes?
The Grundo Warehouse is a place to go to redeem your rare item code. You get a rare item code whenever you visit a store selling Neopets merchandise, or purchase something there. These codes can get you anything from a rare plushie to a super cool battledome item!
How do you get a space discount card?
Go to the Virtupets Space Station (click on 'Explore', then on the Space Station), and the Discount Card door.
Is there going to be an advent calendar again this year in December?
Yup, there is indeed. It is going to have better prizes and more interesting animations than last year also :)
Why is there an English person doing the pronounciation?
Because NeoPets was created in England by two English people. They are the pronounciations that have always been used for the Neopets since their birth.
I own a Gelert, will it automatically change to the new look?
Yes, when we upload the new version, all Gelerts will change to the new version, even all the painted ones!
I've seen mini pictures of people's neopets in their shops. Under the picture it says - Neopet - or - My Neopet - . Whatever the saying is, it's a link to the Neopets homepage.I think they're cute. Where do people get them?
They are Neobadges, you can get to this page by clicking on the 'link to us' text in the yellow side bar.
Will you be making any more plushies, for example Kougra, Peophin and Kacheek plushies?
Yes, we do plan to make plushies of all the NeoPets eventually. As soon as we make another set, we will let you know :)
Is there any way to tell the difference between "the stuff" the trading card and "the stuff" the stuff on the shop wizard?
There is now, the collectable card is now called "The Stuff Collectable Card" :)
I recently used a Style Sheet on my pet's page to make it look better. Now, however, I cannot make any more changes to it, because the "Make Changes" button has appeared as an HTML code on my page! How do I get it back?
If the 'Make Changes' button ever disapears, it means you forgot to end a tag and have broken that page. The only way to fix it is to email firstname.lastname@example.org with your username and what happened. We can then clear the page and reset it back to the default species web page. This means you will lose all changes, but it is the only way we can fix it.
Are you going to sell NeoPets merchandise anywhere other than California, USA?
Yes, we are just doing a small test in the local area to determine what sort of merchandise is popular and what the demand is like. Providing all goes well *crosses fingers*, we will be selling NeoPets merchandise all over America. We do aim to sell products overseas (yes, that includes the UK, Canada, Australia, Singapore and Europe), but it will not be for a while.
