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

From Neopian Times, Issue 957 (Modern) · Published April 1, 2022 · JN Editorial ID: 20990

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!

As always, feel free to also send me a Neomail if you’d like to keep me in the loop. My door’s always open! ~~Mac

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

This is actually a feature we have been discussing and working on bringing back. I am happy to report that the link to the neoboard preferences page will be added to the new layout in our next release, which is scheduled to go out early next week! ~~Aesop

Hi TNT! *a flock of meepits is dropped in by owls* I know that most older wearables are not made compatible with Vandagyres, but the owls (and the meepits) demand to be able to hold their namesake item, the Whoot Purse. The owl pet needs to be able to hold the owl bag! ~~zilaena

Hello! *the flock of meepits disperse in a frantic scurry, probably hoping to find more wires to gnaw and juice to drink* Whoot Purse eh? It's cute, it really is, and I'm feeling extra kind today. x) So enjoy the purse because it is now able to be worn by Vandagyres! Yay! ~~Miss Rainbow

Hi TNT! Happy spring. With spring cleaning on the bran, I'm curious as to whether we could have an update on the status of the organization of our pets with the new slots? I'd really like to get to work on perfecting my pet order but I remember in the few days after the release of slots, it was mentioned that you guys were working on making it so we can organize our pets. Thank you for any updates you can give!! ~~skimaga

Hiya! We plan on giving the ability to sort pets in the future there isn’t a set release date yet. Until then though, we’ll be adding a little order to the pets by making them appear in alphabetical order in the next update! ~ Sunpotato

Hi. Will there be a Festival of Neggs soon? :) Hopefully with at least one album item as a prize. ~~_brainchild_

Very excited to say that yes there will be a Festival of Neggs soon!

Kari has mentioned trying something different this year, hinting that she has already found a brand new locale where she will be hosting the Festival! She also warned us that setting up in a new location is taking more time to prepare, which means the Festival will be taking place a tad later than usual this year. However, it sounds like it will be well worth the wait!

Oh! And we did hear through the neggvine that one of the neggs this year will in fact be giving out an album item... ~~Aesop

Meet Stone!

My favourite Neopet is Acara. I just love their little toe-bean looking feet!

My favourite Neopian Land is the Haunted Woods! I’d build a vacation home there in real life if I could!

My favourite Neopian character is Jhudora, with Illusen following close behind her!

My favourite Neopian food is almost any Doughnutfruit. I don’t know why but they seem like they’d be so satisfying to eat!

My favourite thing about working on TNT is definitely the people I get to work with! There’s never a day we aren’t laughing!

The closest thing to real magic is science! I like to think that there’s nothing we can’t accomplish. We just haven’t found the science behind making it happen!

My proudest accomplishment is that I haven’t broken any bones! Which is very impressive for me because I fall a lot! Like even when I’m just standing there…

For fun, I play video games, read, or do one of the dozen hobbies that I always start and then never fully finish. XD

If I had a warning label, it would be: “Talking volume may increase drastically when something they enjoy is brought up!”

My hidden talent is always having the right song! This is something I’m very proud of actually!

What keeps me up at night? Either the ever-impending doom that the world could end at any moment or remembering all the times I’ve said “you too” when a waiter has told me to enjoy my meal.

*throw packets of ketchup* Hey TNT any chance you guys can fix these errors with the new Dyeworks please? All the Fishtail Wigs are missing Hair Back, Hair Front, Head Drippings restrictions; the Maraquan Contacts are not compatible with Jetsam; Purple: Sunny Garden Dress is bugged on Vandagyre and Wocky; and all the Baby Superstar Dresses are missing their Baby only disclaimer.

So now that one-way transfers are unlimited, can you clarify if transferring your pet between your own accounts to zap it with the lab ray multiple times a day is allowed? It seems like this would go against the spirit of the ray being once per day (without a lab cookie) if you can just circumvent it and toss the pet around your accounts. ~~Anonymous

You are correct, that would go against the spirit of the rules. The lab ray should only be used once a day per account/per pet. ~~Kikocat

Hello! Please remove my username~ Recently, I've noticed some groups of more elite / prominent players gathering up items and working together to artificially inflate them to take advantage of less well connected players. I feel as though this has always been blatantly breaking rules, but could we get another clear reminder that this is not allowed here? Please remove my ~~Anonymous

This is completely against the rules. No group of individuals can come together to control the market. ~~Kikocat

Hi TNT! (Please remove my username) here — I noticed that for two weeks in a row, there has been one user that has won twice. The first week, the user won both 1st AND 2nd place in the Neocash category, and in the second, they won 1st in Neopoint and 2nd in Neocash. I am wondering if these results are the contest being ran as intended or maybe an oversight? It feels like people shouldn’t be able to sweep the contest like that, but the contest is supposed to be decided by votes right? Could we get an official take on this? Thanks team! ~~Anonymous

Yes you are absolutely right this was an oversight. We want to make sure all users have a chance to win this contest so we do have rules that state users are not able to win twice within the same week! We will be sure to be more careful about this in the future! ~~Aesop

I recently installed a browser extension that acts as a Flash emulator, and I want to know the rules before I send any scores. You've mentioned in previous editorials that getting NP by playing old Flash games is not against the rules, but what about for games like Hasee Bounce, Kass Basher, and and Turmac Roll, which have official HTML5 conversions in the mobile-supported Games Room? If possible, I'd prefer to use the Flash versions due to certain peculiarities of the official conversions which make it harder to get points in the aforementioned games, but would choosing the Flash versions specifically to get more NP per play be considered cheating? Also, is it possible to send scores from both the Flash and HTML5 versions of games, and would that be considered cheating? That seems like a cheater-ish thing to do, but I figured I should ask just in case. ~~Anonymous


Yes, playing both the HTML5 and Flash version of a game and sending those scores would be against the rules in the same way that playing mirror games is against the rules. Basically you would be intentionally going around the per day game limit by doing that. So yes, doing both is putting your account at risk. ~~Kikocat

From Neopian Times, Issue 956 (Modern) · Published March 18, 2022 · JN Editorial ID: 20974

Hey TNT, I've been noticing a streak of various arguments on the neoboards getting heated to the point of deliberate insults, nastiness, and bad-faith arguments rather than polite discussion or even debate. I've wondered if this is allowed on the boards now (I only recently became active on them again) and if so, why? And if not, how would a user go about reporting such behavior? Would insults toward other players(even veiled in sarcasm) fall under "harassment" or "profanity/offensive"? This includes speech implying derision toward a specific user or group of users. I'm all for freedom of expression but it seems to often be taken too far leading to personal comments and direct rudeness. What is a reasonable level of antagonism to even allow in these sorts of situations? I know some subjects get very heated, and again, I don't mean to police people's speech, but it gets to a point that it's just depressing to see. Please remove my username from this! ~~Anonymous

Thank you so much for the question. We are always on the lookout for offensive/inappropriate posts, we do have a dedicated team that is looking after all of the many messages that are being displayed within Neopets. We also advise that if you see any activity that is questionable, inappropriate or offensive, that you please report it immediately and we will work quickly to remove any of those items. Thank you again! ~Yarner

Hey there! You might have answered this before, but I was browsing the web and came across screenshots of someone playing a flash game on here- but how could that be, when there is no flash? Is this allowed, and if so, what do I have to do to obtain this power? Thanks :) ~~jrayeb3

Yes, this is allowed. There are several browsers out there that still do offer flash support and using those to play our games is allowed. ~~Kikocat

There were a few items that were being given out instead of the proper petpets, but we reported this to Donny and he was able to ensure these petpets are now being given out!


From Neopian Times, Issue 956 (Modern) · Published March 18, 2022 · JN Editorial ID: 20981

Get to Know Aesop!

Favourite Neopet: I am particularly partial to shoyrus and scorchios. I guess I have a soft spot for adorable dragons.

Favourite Neopian Land: Kreludor for sure! I find outer space fascinating. Plus I always rep the old purple and orange to show my support for the greatest Altador Cup team of all time. We came so close last cup that I have a feeling this might just be our year Kreludorians!

Favourite Neopian Character: This might be the most difficult question I've ever had to answer... There's nothing I love more than a captivating villain, so I would have to say it's a three-way tie for me between Xandra, Dr Sloth, and The Darkest Faerie!

Favourite Neopian food: Normally I would say Buttered Watermelon, but I've been trying to eat healthier so I guess I'll go with the Dust Covered Salad... Although now that I think about it, that new Trapango did look pretty tasty. Maybe I'll just try a nibble *reaches hand in and instantly regrets it* OW!

What is your favourite thing about working on TNT: Wow another tough one... I'd have to say having the opportunity to meet and work with some incredibly passionate people. The entire Neopets team is just so talented and dedicated that it is an honour to collaborate with them to bring more content to Neopia. And despite how awesome they are it's not just the team, but also the amazing neopets players who actively participate in the creative contests across the site that I've had the pleasure of getting to know during my time at TNT :)

What's the closest thing to real magic: a story that truly moves you! Whether it's through a book, movie, or video game I think the closest I've personally gotten to magic is when I really connected with a character or got so caught up in a well-woven plot it started me down a rabbit hole that led to an existential crisis. If you have ever felt those goosebumps washing over you while watching a trailer or during a particularly tense chapter you know exactly what I mean...

What is your proudest accomplishment: Having the opportunity to craft stories in the world of Neopia! Writing the scripts for the Advent Calendar comics and video this year was one of the coolest things I've ever done! Easily my proudest accomplishment of all time :) Although to be fair, most of the credit goes to our amazing art team that brought my little holiday tales to life.

What do you like to do for fun: Writing, reading, fitness, and hiking are some of my routine hobbies. But I'm also an expert at rolling cheese (directly into my mouth)!

If you had a warning label, what would yours say: Avoid direct sunlight and don't feed after midnight.

Do you have any hidden talents: I have a real knack for staying up all night thinking about embarrassing things I did a decade ago!

What keeps you up at night: See above.

Get to Know Miss Rainbow!

Hello! A lot of you have seen me hopping in and out of the NC Mall Neoboard, but apart from me working on NC Mall things day in and day out, I bet you didn’t know…. THIS!

My favourite Neopet… probably the Pastel Bori. I loooove Usuls and Kacheeks (and Baby Bruces!) because I think they are super cute, but the Pastel Bori has my heart because of the pastel rainbow design it has!

My favourite Neopian food… Mayonnaise Doughnuts comes to mind because I love how gross and silly it is, but I also like Baby Aisha Bubble Gum Ice Cream Cone and Baby Aisha Bubble Gum Juice Drink! I think about these items often.

My favourite thing about working on TNT… is that I get to be super creative and make sooo many people happy with the things that make me happy – cute and fun items! I love seeing you all get excited and hyped up for new items that come out, it means I’ve done my job if you are happy with the items hehe. ALSO! I have a great team that I work with! TNT is very friendly, funny, hardworking, passionate, and I feel very accepted and supported here x)

The closest thing to real magic? …Probably retail therapy, strawberry milk, and Spotify. All at the same time.

My proudest accomplishment… I have 130 unique playlists that I made – all with different moods and vibes. I love them dearly! BUT I am most proud about my job here at Neopets and how cutely I’ve decorated my apartment!

What I like to do for fun… I make super cute beaded bracelets, paint my own gel manicures, watch scary movies, and go out to shop and eat with my boyfriend!

What is your favourite thing about working on TNT? - My favourite part about working here is collaborating with the talented people on this team to help keep Neopia safe and our fans happy.

What is your proudest accomplishment? – So far, my proudest accomplishment is becoming QA lead for a community that had such a big impact on my generation.

Hey TNT, are stories written in script form allowed? I'm asking because my series, The Tales of Tairatora and Traxitus, is written in that form. Please help! ~~spatialfeline2022

Absolutely! Here at the Neopian Times, we love to see stories told through many different forms and formats. Creativity is something that can never truly be shackled after all!

So yes stories written in script format are something we would certainly accept. In fact, we published a superb script series by NT writer rielcz for the Performing Arts Collab Edition last year, Neopia Central: The Musical! //www.neopets.com/ntimes/index.phtml?section=583635&issue=926 Looking forward to reading about the exploits of Tairatora and Traxitus! ~~Aesop

Hi TNT! I've been wondering - why do books disappear after we read them to our pets? Are they eating them? Are they using the pages to make blackout poetry? Burning them? What's the deal? ~~phlyarologist

Although Grarrls and Skeith might think eating them is a great option after reading them, most people absorb the knowledge which leads to the book vanishing, although sometimes this doesn't happen and you get to keep the book.

Seriously though, books are like food on the site and once read (consumed) they are considered used and do disappear. There is a small chance the book will return to your inventory though in rare cases.

From Neopian Times, Issue 955 (Modern) · Published March 4, 2022 · JN Editorial ID: 20966

I got a prize today at Coincidence and it said "Nothing seems to happen. Oh wait, check the floor! You might want to catch that Aisha Cinnamon Roll before it crawls away." Just wondering how a Cinnamon Roll can crawl? I have been playing a long time, and it is a first for me. Passes out cinnamon rolls to all the hard working TNT. ~~kennedyklanmapa

*Greedily gobbles down cinnamon rolls* Thank you for those scrumptious sweets (how did you know I skipped lunch again?) and your intriguing question! Many Neopian cinnamon rolls are far more spirited than one would expect. For instance, Spectral Cinnamon Rolls have been known to float and Zesty Cinnamon Rolls have a certain zing that gives them quite the bounce. And then of course there is the Angry Cinnamon Roll, but every time I see those I'm usually the one crawling away! So it would be no surprise that the Aisha Cinnamon Roll could be a bit lively as well. Especially since I've heard rumours Jerdana has developed a fondness for aisha themed pranks! ~~Aesop

From Neopian Times, Issue 955 (Modern) · Published March 4, 2022 · JN Editorial ID: 20965

Hi Tnt! I, like many others have played Neopets for a long time and have an aged main account that I'm quite proud of (20 years plus). Also like many other Neopians am becoming quite concerned about what would happen should my account ever be hacked, frozen for my protection or even if I need to send in a ticket as one of your questions you need to provide is "Email used to create your account?". I was ten when I created my account, how am I meant to remember an email address from over 20 years ago? Surely if need be, some other information we provide can be relevant such as screen shots, personal info, other emails and so on. My heart would break if I lost my main account and the fact I've read this happening to other Neopians already scares me as I wouldn't have it in me to start from scratch again. Can we not find some kind of middle ground? ~~Anonymous


That is an understandable concern. What support needs for account access, PIN requests or frozen/deactivated accounts are one of the following sets of information:

Birthday AND Emails (both current/newest you used and original)

Birthday AND NC purchases if you ever bought NC on the account

Birthday AND Premium Membership Information if you had Premium on the account after 2015

So there are other pieces of information that can be used in most situations if you have that available for your account. On newer accounts, there should also be a security question, sadly this is not available at this time for older accounts.

There are only a few rare situations where a ticket is required to be sent from the original email, however, this is something out of the control of the support staff member answering the tickets. ~~Kikocat

Hi TNT! I am soooo excited for the Altador Cup in a few months. I love playing the games, chatting with my teammates, AND dressing my pets! The team Locker Room Backgrounds used to available in the NC mall every year. Unfortunately, they stopped being added for the last couple of years. Can they please be added back this time? I would love to be able to get a bunch for ALL of my pets to wear. Thank you so much and GO HAUNTED WOODS! ~~aditu200

Hello! So excited you’re pumped for the Altador Cup! I’m pretty hyped up myself. x) We thank you for bringing these missing locker rooms to our attention.

Be honest, TNT--is Neopets sticking around for any length of time? Because to be honest, a lot of us are really scared right now, with all the staff turnover and the NFT drama and everything else. ~~i_love_latin

We all really appreciate the question. We tend to get stuck with our heads down with working on ways to improve the Neopets site that we forget to pick up our heads and tell you how things are going.

There is no need to fear! TNT continues to remain a passionate group of people who only want to make the best experience for you. I love working on Neopets and I couldn’t be happier working with such a talented team.

Our main goal as part of TNT is to keep talking every day about new content ideas, ways to fix areas of the site and make a better experience for those within the Neopets site. We are very excited about what we have laid out for the next year and beyond. As we get more clarity surrounding timelines, we will share as we know it is important that you know that we are working hard.

Thank you again for your question! ~~Yarner
