What do you mean by 'No Contests'?
It means no contests, lotteries, raffles, competitions, caption contests, mystery pic contests, anything where a user has to do something to have a chance of winning. Honest give-aways in the Money Tree are fine, but any form of competition is not permitted.
Someone said if we voted for them in the Beauty Contest, you would make a special paintbrush, is this true?
No, if we are going to create a new paintbrush, it will be announced on New Features. That was just a scam to get you to vote for their Neopet in the Beauty contest, the offending user has been disqualified from this week's round.
There is a rumour starting, that if you starve a pet then feed it a cool negg, and other neggs, that the pet will get more benefits than if is satiated or not hungry... is this "just a rumour" or should you starve the pet to get maximum benefits from neggs?
Yes, it is yet another silly rumour. There are no benefits or starving your Neopet. It is cruel, and you will not be able to fight in the Battledome. You will not get ANY extra benefits if you treat your Neopets badly!
Will there be more things that use Dubloons?
Yes, everything on the new Pirate world will need Dubloons so you had better start practicing your Deckswabbing :)
What are the guidelines for reporting a shop?
If you notice something odd, profane or against our terms and conditions (live chats, anything sexual, offensive language or images, etc.) please report the shop. We will check it out and if it is breaking any rules, we will take appropriate action.
I just wanted to know if we can still find the Blumarooo and battle with him because I didn'tget a chance to do so?
Yes, Count Von Roo will be challenging Neopets in the Battledome every day. You can only battle him at certain times though, he is a vampire you know and cant battle in broad daylight :)
Can you withdraw from the Training School before youpay for the course?
No, once you enroll your Neopet in a course at the Training School or Swashbuckling Academy, you need to wait for your Neopet to complete the course and then pay the correct amount.
How do I relocate my Neohome?
You can't, once you have chosen a location to build in, that is where your Neohome stays. Make sure you think carefully where you want to live BEFORE you start building your Neohome.
If a pet stays in the Pound for too long do you put it to sleep?
No, the kind Dr_Death looks after unwanted Neopets until they find a good owner.
How do you get Tyrannian Army points?
I am afraid you cannot earn points for the Tyrannian Army now. They were awarded to brave Neopians who helped fend off the Monoceraptor and free Tyrannia.
When is Alpine Challenge going to be fixed?
We are going to re-write Alpine Challenge in a few weeks, then a new improved version will go back up.
How do I take Codestones to Mystery Island?
You just need to have them in 'Your Items' when you go to Mystery Island.
Do you get anything for sending a story/comic/article to The Neopian Times?
Yes, If your article/comic/story is published, you will get a shiny trophy for your cabinet.
Why did the time machine vanish from Tyrannia?
I don't know, maybe he fixed the machine, he had been asking for parts for months so its about time :)
I never get random events, what do I need to do?
Random events are exactly that, they are random. Sometimes you will get loads of them, some days you won't get any... The more pages you visit, the more likely you are to get a random event.
Why is Punchbag Bob in disguise?
Poor Punchbag kept having Neopets running up to him and attacking him on his time off, so he decided to wear a disguise in the Battledome so nobody would recognise him when he was walking down the street :)
There are a lot of people who say that the highest bidder in the Trading Post will get their account, is this true?
Nope, this is another scam to get you to bid thousands of Neopoints for nothing. You may not sell, trade or buy a NeoPets account or Pets for Neopoints, money, NeoPets' Items, or anything else. Plus it doesn't make sense, if they really are getting rid of their account, why would they want thousands of Neopoints? Just report anybody you see doing this to email@example.com.
How do I work on making the web page for my Neopet look better anddifferent?
You can start by reading our simple HTML Guide. This will teach you basic things you can do to change the look of your page.To begin editing your pets page, just click on 'Pet Central' and then 'Pets Page' in the top toolbar.
Can you hold more than 50 items?
No, but you can have as many items as you want in your Safety Deposit Box!
What score do you need to get in Deckswabber to get a Dubloon?
You need to score 300 or more in Deckswabber to earn a Dubloon. If you score higher, you will win more Dubloons.
Can I heal my Neopet for free?
Yes, you can always try visiting the Healing Springs in Faerieland. A kind Water Faerie will try to help your Neopet.
Can you change the name of your Neopet?
Once a Neopet is created, I am afraid you cannot change its name. Even if you adopt it from the pound.
Can I have a contest in my guild?
I am afraid we cannot allow any contests anywhere on Neopets. There is no way to make sure that the contests are legitimate. The majority of contest winners are just friends of the shop owner, or fake accounts. We know a few people did award prizes to real winners, but there is no way for us to check this so we have no choice but to ban them completely.
What's going to happen in Maraqua?
All will be revealed very shortly... it is just the beginning of a new world. Keep checking new features for more info :)
What happened to the Volcano?
The third Tyrannian map didn't really have anything on it. To make it easier for everyone to get to things we moved all the active links from the Volcano to the Plateau. Now it should be much faster to find games such as Kacheekers, and the Tyrannian Weaponary.
On the chat boards, people are saying that if you AIM (Aol Instant Messanger) the a certain username, and you give him your password, he will give you 500,000. Is this true?
No, this is just another scam. No member of Neopets staff will ever contact you through AIM. Neither will they EVER ask you for your password, if you ever see anything like this, just report it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Is there another way to get fountain passes besides signing up with sponsors?
Not at the moment, although soon the Rainbow Fountain will be available to everyone (even under 13's).
How do I contact my neofriend if his/her mailbox is full?
You need to wait for them to delete some of their neomessages. Try contacting them via the messageboards instead.
If I report a shop or someone else, will they know it was me or will it be discrete?
If you report a shop it is complete anonymous. There is no way for the shop owner to know who reported them.
When is the Trading Post coming back?
We took the Trading Post down as it was causing a lot of problems. It is being completely re-written and should be ready to go back up sometime next week.
