Grey Day Site Theme Live
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on April 14, 2021, 11:48 am NST

It's a sad rainy day in Neopia, because a small new update to the Neopets site redesign is now live! This update contains just the revamped version of the Grey Day site theme.


This theme also contains a cute little quirk. If you click on "Greyify" in the top left corner, you'll go full greyscale:


This theme is available to all Neopians during the beta period, and since it is a "default" site theme on the Classic layout, you should be able to keep this beta theme without taking any extra steps to unlock it.

To update your beta layout theme, visit Site Preferences and look for the "Beta Theme" dropdown setting (just below the old "Theme" dropdown).

Festival of Neggs Site Theme + Dip & Dye Neggs
  • Posted by Dave

A new update to the Neopets site redesign is now live! This update contains just the revamped version of the Festival of Neggs site theme.


Topsi will occasionally pop out from the right hand side, and if you click him, you'll get sent on a fun little (and seemingly endless) negg hunt right on the homepage:


This is just a fun little quirk for the converted theme. No prizes, no relation to the ongoing Festival of Neggs, or even an end to the hunting. How many neggs can you find before getting bored?

This theme is available to all Neopians during the beta period, but in order to keep the new theme you will need to either (a) already have it unlocked on the Classic site, or (b) likely complete a portion of the ongoing 2021 Festival of Neggs event. Make sure you check out our guide to get started.

In other Festival of Neggs news, the Dip & Dye Neggs Neocash event is now live, running from today through April 30th. Read more on our guide:

Neopets in the Washington Post

Neopets was featured in part of a larger article about the death of Flash over in the Washington Post.

Here are some of the related excerpts:

Neopets, a website where players can take care of a virtual pet and play games, similarly faced a challenging transition away from Flash. In 2020, the company estimated the site still had 100,000 daily active users and 1.5 million monthly active players.

“We’re not like a hundred person dev team where we could just focus on everything at once,” said Neopets brand manager Stephanie Lord. “So we definitely have to prioritize.”

And here, a Nintendo Switch game is possibly teased:

While parts of the Neopets site still don’t work, without the looming deadline, the development team is just focused on fixing features gradually, Lord said. The company is also considering bringing Neopets to Nintendo Switch, to modernize the product and expand its audience.

(Don't get too excited—that sounds like a very vague desire, and would likely not come to fruition for awhile even if there was a console game developer interested in licensing Neopets.)

And one funny anecdote about trying to make the Wheel of Monotony spin for longer:

One example is the Wheel of Monotony, an iconic stone wheel in the prehistoric land Tyrannia which spins for hours before landing on a prize. After Flash died, the wheel was down until February, when developers successfully brought the feature to HTML5. As a daily activity, it was on the list to be fixed quickly. That proved to be a technical challenge. The wheel’s main feature is that it will spin for an extensive amount of time, until a Flash player engine told it to stop. Neopets developers needed to use extra math and a countdown timer in JavaScript to keep the wheel running.

More Neopet Colours Converted to HTML5
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on April 7, 2021, 3:14 pm NST


We reported just last week that TNT had finished converting 34 more Neopet colour combos to HTML5, and that there were about 17 left that we were waiting on. Well, less than a week later, we're happy to report that most of the remaining have been converted to HTML5:

Woodland Chia
Mutant Draik (minor fixes)
Maraquan Eyrie
Chocolate Koi
Steampunk Koi
Clay Kougra
Baby Nimmo
Mosaic Scorchio
Transparent Uni (minor fixes)
Mosaic Uni
Custard Usul (minor fixes)
Invisible Usul
Toy Usul
Mosaic Usul
Electric Vandagyre
Starry Vandagyre

We are still waiting on HTML5 conversions (or minor fixes) for these 2 colour combos:

Mutant Korbat (minor fixes) Fixed 4/19
Candy Shoyru

As an additional note, we have never seen a Toy Elephante (modeled, and confirmed converted!), Toy Gelert (modeled, and confirmed converted!), or Clay Tonu modeled in our Wardrobe, so we can't report on the status of those colour combos. If you know the name of a Neopet painted one of those 3 colour combos, model it for us!

Plot Popularity Survey
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on April 6, 2021, 4:59 pm NST


A new survey has been posted by TNT, asking to pick your all-time top 3 favorite events from the past. A mix of smaller events (like Desert Diplomacy) and full-blown plots (The Faeries' Ruin) are included.

It's unknown exactly what this survey is for, or how TNT will use it. But we suggest making sure to fill it out!


Let us know in the comments—which 3 are you picking, and why?
