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!

Hi TNT! *Slides over fresh baked cookies* I know you are doing the best you can. I am appreciative of you all trying but it seems like we are lacking in communication. I wanted to highlight some specific editorial answers that have not been updated despite assurances. In Issue 952, from January 2022, you said that you will shortly have a roadmap for 2022. Forgive me if I missed it but it is now month 9 in 2022 and we do not have a roadmap for this year. In April, another user followed up and you said you were working on a 2022 roadmap (Issue 957). In Issue 951 you said you would be working on getting rid of boring books. There are even more "promises" that have not been worked on that would be so helped by having a roadmap or being transparent. I am sure we would all be much happier if we knew what was coming or what was being prioritized. Because right now, it seems everything and nothing is a priority. But in reality you are all working so hard. It would surely help the mood! ~~longuylandgirl
Thank you so much for the question! There have been many changes over the years at Neopets, but one thing has remained steadfast: our dedication to giving our users the best experience. Our primary focus for 2022 was to make our annual events as fun and polished as possible. The goal in doing this was to shorten the development time for the following years so that we can use this time to look at the quality of life updates and focus on the features that were promised at the beginning of the year and last. In 2022, we had items pop up that were outside of our control which pivoted our emphasis on updating security systems. With a small group of developers, shifts in direction have a tremendous impact on how we prioritize and plan for the future. TNT remains highly dedicated to making Neopets the best they can be. Many things need to be updated, and we appreciate you submitting tickets when items are incorrect and challenging us to improve things. ~~Yarner
