Neopia's Fill in the Blank News Source | 11th day of Celebrating, Yr 20
The Neopian Times Week 119 > Editorial

Neopets Editorial

Thanks to everyone that came to the recent event in Singapore, especially all the people who travelled from Malaysia. Donna made a list of the most commonly asked questions and here are the answers.

Neoschools - What is happening?
In all honesty we wanted to launch in September, but unfortunately a lot of other projects came up and we got side tracked. We are aiming to launch Neoschools for real in January so the Neoschool term will coincide with the real school term.

Exam dates will be updated, as well as all special events listed on the Neoschools pages.

Maraqua???
We do not plan to add anything to Maraqua for a little while, but when we do come back to it we will make it worth the wait :)

Can we get some new Faerie abilities/Battledome abilities?
We will be adding something more for higher level pets shortly. This is the red codestone idea. There may also be some VERY high level faerie abilities added.

On the old neomail system you didnt need to enter pass to change your user lookup. Now there is no link and you can't do it without entering your password. Is this being fixed?
Hmm.. I honestly do not know about this one. We may have changed it to make it more secure.

Can you freeze Beauty Contest cheats not just disqualify the image as people don't stop submitting stolen art?
Yes, that is something we have been debating doing for a while.

There is no way to find Meuka, help!
Yes there is, but it is a lot harder than it used to be.

The MSP Poogle is not listed in the Rainbow Fountain, is this meant to be that way? Yes, that is on purpose. The MSP Poogle is very hard to get.

Can you create some slightly cheaper items for the Hidden Tower?
The whole point of the Hidden Tower is the fact it is always full of the most powerful and most expensive items in Neopia. I will try to get some slightly lower priced things in there, but they won't be cheap.

Can you add more effects for having a painted pet? E.g Invisible take less damage.
Ooh yes, there need to be more advantages to having a specialist pet.

Does Balthazar give faeries at the money tree?
Yes, this is Balthazar's Mega Faerie Giveaway Bonanza. It is one of many World Events that deposit items at the Money Tree.

The Battle and Defence shops are always full of overpriced items, you can buy them much cheaper in players shops. Can you fix this?
This is something we are trying to fix at the moment by adding more common low cost items and retiring some of the old items. The automatic price changer should help resolve this also.

Can you try to add a new non-limited Neopet before the limited edition one comes out?
We are currently having sketches for new pet ideas drawn now. When we find one we really like it will become the next Neopet and it would be nice to have a new one that isn't limited edition. Who knows, maybe we will even add a couple :)

The limited use items dont say if they are one use or if they are multiple, how do we find this out?
Wow, that would be important to know. I will get that sorted out.

Can you add more avatars for poor players?
Yes, we will be adding many more skill based and random avatars that will not be affected by how wealthy you are.

You can read pile of sludge to your pet! Is that right?
Haha, how err... cool...

Can you un-retire the Faerie Paint Brush?
Oh I don't know about that, I will have to talk to Adam about it. He does get very funny about keeping retired items retired.

Release more Draik Eggs please!
Well I suppose it has been almost a year since we last released some. I will prod Adam to release some soon.

Can you add challengers or games like Deadly Dice that are timed for Singaporean players?
Hmm.. that is a good idea. It would be good to have something cool happen at say 12 noon NST so everyone on the other side of the world can get a chance to do something. We will try to think of something for this.

Can the staff add their character names on the about us page?
I will ask everyone in the office, some people might want to remain anonymous so it depends what the majority decides.

For everyone who didnt get a chance to be there, here are some pictures of the event. Sorry there aren't more but we were too busy answering questions and drawing to take pics :)

Dark Flame: Part Eleven
"She's right," I said out loud, "I can't do anything right. Why am I the Essence? A miserable little girl that can't even care for her own pets. I don't deserve them."
