Tis the Season Theme Enabled in Beta
  • Posted by Herdy
  • Posted on December 17, 2020, 12:31 pm NST

Ahead of Christmas week, the Tis the Season site theme has been ported over to beta. Release Notes state there have been a few minor changes to logged out pages in the beta as well.


(This theme also features a modified cursor, falling snow, and music with a play/pause button on the top right.)

Note: This is not the big update mentioned in the recent developer interview, that will be coming next week. At this point, you still have the option to opt out of beta.

Neopets in a Post-Flashpocalypse World
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on December 16, 2020, 12:51 pm NST


Neopets has posted a video to their YouTube Channel to answer some questions about the upcoming Flashpocalypse! There are a few notable points that we've shared below. You can also watch the video here:


If you don't want to watch the whole thing, here are some points of note:

  • Before the end of 2020, the ability to switch between "Classic" and "Beta" will be removed. You will only be able to see the newly redesigned versions of pages (such as the homepage, Neopian Bank, etc.). Any pages not converted to the new design yet will remain in Classic.
  • Games—even the converted ones—will have their Flash Classic versions remain available for the time being.
  • More games will be converted to HTML5 in 2021. Some may be updated to be freshened up (think Destruct-O-Match II and III). Some, which are not played at all, will not be converted. Outside contractors are helping TNT here to speed up the process.
  • Game score submissions will return in the final 2020 update.
  • About 75% of wearables have been converted from Flash, and they're hoping to be close to 100% by the end of 2020. (Most are converted via an automatic script, but some are troublesome that need to be completely redone from scratch and fixed by hand by artists.)
  • The Customisation app is slated for more updates and bug fixes in early 2021.
  • Any world maps that haven't been converted yet (most of them still), will have quick links added underneath. "Hidden" links won't be included, like the Hidden Tower in Faerieland. You will need to find these on your own in the meantime. Converting the rest of the maps are still TBD.
  • The Neopian Pound doors (adopt, disown, transfer) will be updated to be links instead of a Flash animation.
  • Later on, the Neopian Pound will also receive QoL updates and a redesign.
  • Any dailies based on Flash will be brought over throughout 2021.
  • Some things may be retired, but for the most part everything will come back.
  • Neohomes—both Classic and 2.0—will probably be retired, and come back instead as a completely new "Neohomes 3.0" version. All the existing furniture items are hoping to remain usable in whatever the new Neohomes look like.
  • The focus is always on pages/features/things that users use the most day to day.
  • They also want to balance adding in some new features and content. Including "possibly some new plots" in 2021. (Lutari Island was also name dropped.)
  • A redesigned Trading Post is ready for development resources to tackle in an upcoming update.

What do you think of the updates above? What are you excited for most (or least!) with the site redesign? Let us know in the comments!

New Random Contest
  • Posted by Herdy
  • Posted on December 14, 2020, 11:58 am NST

A new Random Contest has just been launched. As with the previous contest, one of the prizes for winning this round is part of your entry becoming an actual item on the Neopets site. Entries will be open until January 9th.


This round you must draw a scene of your Neopet doing a hobby, and the Neopets Team will take inspiration from that scene to make items (rather than using the entire image).
