Neopian Times Editorial Database

The Neopian Times Editorial is a (usually) weekly column hosted by The Neopets Team that answers questions direct from Neopians. Unfortunately, these Q&A's are not easily searched on the Neopets site, so we've created our own searchable database. Convenient for looking up past answers!

Last week, you gave a controversial but much-appreciated comment regarding the Battledome. Even though it's not the answer we wanted, we battlers are glad that you were finally honest about where you are in the process. I have a few follow-up questions that we are all dying to know the answers to. First, when you conducted your survey, did you take into consideration the account age of those who responded? It seems, based on what I've seen on the boards, that those asking for more games and dailies are likely those who only play casually, while those who have been around for longer and spend hours on the site every day would probably have asked for improvements to the great site features that already exist. Secondly, if you don't have the manpower to fix the current Battledome, then would it be possible to give us a copy of the old Battledome to play in the interim? I know it's outdated, but it worked much more smoothly.

We sorted our data by account age, time spent on the site, Premium players, age of players, NC spenders, gender... every possible way we could think of, we sorted it. There were some changes depending on account age when you got lower down in the rankings, but the top ranked stuff was pretty much the same regardless of how we sorted the players.

With regard to your second question, the new Battledome uses new code, but it is built on top of the foundation that was already there to make sure certain things carried over. That foundation was modified a bit for what the new BD needed, so the old BD code wouldn't work even if we wanted to put it back up.

As for the new Battledome itself, we'd like to reiterate that we have no intention of abandoning it and still intend on getting back to it. It just isn't at the top of the list of things that players requested most. :/
