Hi TNT! My Neopets and I absolutely loved the Usukicon event and the new items that came out this year!! All my neopets want a turn wearing the Usuki Doll Packaging Foreground. :D My question though is, how long will the Y22 Usukicon Goodie Bag (neopoint item) be available for? This owner here needs that Caffeine Overload Usuki Bobblehead very badly, as it totally encapsulates my life (and probably someone else's at TNT!). It's probably one of the funniest items I've ever seen. Thanks!! ~~Neopian experiencing caffeine overload
So happy to hear you enjoyed the new items! :) And The Y22 Usukicon Goodie Bag (NP) will be available from now up until the next Usukicon!
Hey. Noticed Meat and fruit Kebab doesn't capitalize the word Fruit in the item name. ~~sixlets1
Good catch! Should be fixed now.
Hey TNT! Had a question about relationships between characters. Is it still not allowed? I understand there have been important characters that I came accross in the Neopedia that mention romance and love interest (example - King Jazan and Nabile). Is it okay to have our characters be moms and dads for story or maybe a tragic Romeo and Juliet story? Im 100% behind you on characters "dating" between players because that could go so wrong so fast. Please remove my username if you could please.
Sorry to say this but none of those rules have changed. You would not be able to have any romance or love interests, however you can say they are related to one another (just no overly graphic details). So no a tragic love story wouldn’t really work within those rules.
Some time ago you guys said you were updating the prize pool of the art gallery so people wouldn't get items that have become basically worthless with the pass of time. But I still see people saying they got a codestone, or a dubloon and personally I lost count of how many cheap petpets I've got (acko, apis, etc). Did this update actually happened? I don't expect to win stuff worth millions or anything, but it feels kinda underwhelming to spend a lot of time in a piece, getting picked and getting a prize worth what, 10k? Please remove my username, thanks.
Hi, yes the prize pool for some creative contests (Art Gallery, Caption Contest, Poetry Gallery, and Storytelling Contest) were updated in the Fall of 2018. This does not mean prizes were removed so there is still a chance to get codestones, dubloons and petpets but newer items were added.
Hey! It seems like King Skarls Snowbunny is still not appearing anywhere, and I was wondering if you could look into this. Thanks!
I have looked into this and checked with our programmer and he said it is active but it is a very rare drop hence why it is very difficult to find. But it is active and working.
Hey TNT! i recently created a new account zombieghosts as my new main but i am regretting doing this is it okay if i switch back to my old main when my Premium runs out? Promise i wont switch again!~~zombieghosts
Sure, you would be able to switch back after your Premium on zombieghosts runs out.
Hi! Could you possibly consider making a new Retired Baby Capsule in the NC Mall please? There are very limited options when it comes to dressing Baby Neopets and rereleasing the old items in a capsule would be really fun! Thanks!~~cherry_25
This is great idea, we will definitely try to add this to schedule.
Underwater Maraquan Markings are so amazing!! Thank you TNT! But when my maraquan wears clothes the markings hover over the clothes and looks so awkward! Can they be rezoned to marking instead of static?~~_sissiy_sis_369
Yes, they will take a cool minute to sync, but they will be up shortly.
Hello! I'm very sad because the yellow, green and blue bruce morphing potions were mistakenly given a rarity of 101 and therefore do not show up in Kauvara's, making them impossible to find. Could a hero come and fix this? I'd be so pleased!~~floons
Donny has gone ahead and adjusted the rarity of those three.
Hi! Can you fix the issue that Pirate Marafin and Christmas Sunutek in petpet puddle are unpaintable? These petpets are in the puddle as painted colors aren't set with a base color for the original petpet, so they cannot be created currently. Thanks!~~zackattackplayspkmn
You're totally right, Donny has gone ahead and set those up so they should be able to be made now.
HAPPY THOUGHTS: Just wanted to send a little love your way to thank you all for everything you're doing for Neopia, Neopets, and the fanbase. It brings me (and I know for others too) tons of joy to be able to log in each day, do my dailies and see my pets. I've been here for 13 years, and Neopets is certainly ingrained in my day-to-day.~~flare_baroshi

Hello! Just letting you know the item "Yoooyuball Pen" has more than the recommended number of O's in it :)~~mopsihog
You're totally right Donny has gone ahead and fixed it!
Hi. I was surprised to see a "Random Poetry" round in the Poetry Contest. This hasn't been done in a very long time. Will there be more of these? I was only submitting for Neopian Holidays.
Yes we will definitely try to these more as we can!
Hey TNT! Do you think Donny could fix Maractite Dimensional Trap? Its estimated price is set to zero so it's a r99 item that doesn't stock. Thank you!~~acara_575
Woah weird, okay we have now priced this item!
The new Garins Collectors Outfit eliminates all hand held items when you put the outfit on. Please add this to your to-do list. ~~only1bocelli
You're right poor zone choice, Donny is going to change it to belt, this change has to sync then it should be available!
Hello, around the years 2011-2012 we had NC cards available in Mexico, I was wondering if you plan on bring them back to that country, I think there's quite a lot of players that would benefit from it, I hope you do, thanks for being awesome :D~~principe
Yes we are actually working on restocking them so keep an eye out!
Hi TNT! Thank you guys for clearing up the BC. Also loving this month's collectible. We have recently been seeing Unconverted pets being deleted, and their lookup says the pet's name has been deemed inappropriate. However, all of these pets were made at a time where their name WAS appropriate, and these pets were stated to be grandfathered in, as the rule was not in place then. Why are these pets being deleted now after so long? Thanks so much! ~~mindy_rocks_socks
Unfortunately our filtering system is not perfect. It’s a living filter that we have added to and removed from over the years. Some names have been created to circumvent our filters and have escaped our notice. Every once in a while one of these situations is brought to our attention and we then have to take some kind of action. This is due to the fact we are an all-ages site. If a name is deemed to be inappropriate, it must be removed. There’s no way around this. If it is in a grey area and can be grandfathered, that is of course always preferable!
hey, just a quick lil question. if I accidentally submit a piece for the art gallery on my side, am I allowed to resubmit it on my main without getting in trouble? ~~calicotabbies101
Sure, you can submit the entry from your main account. If the wrong entry is accepted, please open a ticket and they can pass on any messages to the contest judge to get them changed. :)
Hi TNT, may you please let us know when the next Premium Sale is on? Thank you!~~bubbles150
Yes it is currently live as of today! This will be available till the 8th of September!
BC contestants can post on a board with our BC link in our signature, and we can only create a boards that advertise our BC entry in Art, Spotlight, and Premium. But I have seen users create boards with their BC link in their signatures outside of Art, Spotlight, and Premium. These boards are offering SSW searches for quests and offering a VWN or UC neopet up for adoption with their BC link in the original post. I feel like this is a Quid Pro Quo and violates the spirit of the rules. Is this allowed? Will I need to buy premium or put an UC UFA if I want to win BC gold? ~~ere173
HI, You are right, you can only create a board with the sole intent of advertising on the Art, Spotlight and Premium Boards. On those boards you can talk about your entry in any part of your post, NeoHTML, main body of the board, subject line, and of course in your NeoSig.
Now outside of those boards, you can only have a link in your NeoSig, nothing in the subject line, NeoHTML or body of the message discussing your BC link or entry. That includes on the Avatar board!!
Those boards (trading pets or offering quest help) are fine as long as they keep the BC link in their NeoSig only and do not discuss it any other part of their posts and are actually trading or giving out help.
If you see posts outside of the Art, Spotlight or Premium boards that link to or discuss their BC entry anywhere but in the NeoSig please report the boards so we can get them removed and keep things fair!
I was wondering if we could have a Mutant Vandagyre for Mutant day next month.
This is something we are considering so...i guess we will see when the day comes...
Hello! There are currently two items with the name Yooyuball Cake Pops, one of them is from last year's Altador Cup, and one is from this year. Could the one from this year please be renamed to something slightly different?~~ lucky3005pig
You're right we have gone ahead and changed the newer one to classic yooyuball cake pops.
Hey TNT! I know you guys have been really busy with the mobile beta, site events and everything else that's going on, but can we expect a new round of the Random Contest still this summer? Having at least one edition of it per year would be really helpful for us Avatar Collectors! Thank you~~acara_575
Yes we are hoping to do a contest soon, not sure exactly when but we really want to do another one!
Hi! There was recently a Daily Puzzle question that stated: "What board can you NOT create a post on with the sole purpose of advertising your BC entry?" The correct answer was, "Avatar Board." Why is this the case? Earning a trophy in the BC gets you an avatar, so it's at least somewhat related. Or, does this just mean that you can't make a board solely for that purpose? There's been so much back and forth over what is and isn't allowed in BC advertising. It would be really helpful if there was a complete guide containing the rules to prevent confusion. Thanks. ~~redturtlegirl12345
Right, you cannot make a board strictly for advertising your entry on the Avatar Board. However, you can have a BC Link in your NeoSig and chat on the Avatar Board.
So let's do this:
Boards specifically made to bring attention to your BC entry can be made on the Art Board, Spotlight Board or Premium Boards ONLY.
Your Neosig, with a link to your BC entry, can be posted on any board as long as you contribute to the conversation. Now, since the Quest board does not really have conversations that bring up questions about having the link there, let's get this out there. You are welcome to keep your Neosig while helping with quests on the quest board (meaning as long as you are providing links to members who ask for help).
To answer the next question about the quest boards that you might be thinking, you do not have to have been a long time poster on the quest boards to post there even with our BC link. To make it fair to everyone, anyone who is willing to help, can help!
One more thing, please keep your advertising outside the Art, Spotlight and Premium boards in your Neosig, this means nothing in the body of your message and nothing in the NeoHTML.
Kikocat is working with some others to get a list of rules up, although right now there isn't a timeline for that. Hopefully this helps in the meantime!
Hi TNT! So I was lent a few pets over the past week or so to obtain avatars by this really cool person. She has a whole page dedicated to her pet lends, but no buttons to link back. As I love a reason to design, I thought I'd create one for her. But before I do, I figure I'd better check in with you guys. Would this be considered a "tip" and therefor be against the rules? Please remove my username.
Hello! That sounds like a great gift. It would not be viewed as a tip so you would be fine!
Is there an obvious link somewhere to get back to the classic site for games?? ~~thtmnbhndthecrtn
Sure, just click on your Pet's Portrait in the upper left corner and near the bottom of the menu that comes up you will see View Classic Site. Just click that and you will be back on the classic version of Neopets and be able to play!
Daily Puzzle: July, 19th: Question: Which of the following species does NOT have the ability to be painted Steampunk? Answer: Poogle Is this is a hint for September 19th? (Loses hope for Pastel..) ~~nicole_xbill
As a fellow Poogle lover, I wish that was true! However, that question was not a hint that a Steampunk Poogle is coming. Sorry to disappoint you though. Guess we all just have to wait until September to find out what the new colour will be.
Hi TNT!! My younger sister plays Neopets and enjoys your site! I recently moved in with her and was wondering if I’m still able to play my games and dailies when using her laptop? I wasn’t sure what your rules are for this. ~~kristytempy
Of course you can both continue playing! We know a lot of our members do share an IP or even a computer with family members who also play. Just continue to play the same way you always have. :)
Hi! Is there a better place to send suggestions, other than spamming the editorial? Thanks! ~~redturtlegirl12345
You are welcome to send suggestions to the Editorial or you can post them on the Ideas and Suggestions board (http://www.neopets.com/neoboards/boardlist.phtml?board=2), our monitoring staff does collect suggestions while they watch over the site. They then send these suggestions in at the end of the day, so either way would work. :)
Hi TNT! I was wondering if it's possible to get some new prizes for Trudy's Surprise again? In the beginning, we would get new prizes every few weeks/months. At the moment, we have received the same few prizes for a year now and it would be nice to get some new neat items for playing :) Thank you so much!~~simplicita
Yes you're totally right, we are working on a new prize pool as we speak and hope to have that release next month!
