13th September - Techo Day
- The Neopian Times has just been released.
This week's issue has funny comics, your favourite stories and articles, and of course the editorial
written by Pop Tart (she is a nice girl, but she's rubbish at Deckball!) Check it out - you literally
can not afford to miss it!
Mmm mmm, that's one tasty bowl of soup!
- A new challenger has been seen lurking and hissing around the site... have you met the Shadow Usul yet...?
- NEOPETS DECKBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS. First there was Sacrificers, then the Murder Mystery... now the
ill-fated Neopets Team are back, vying for the Krawk Cup!!!
Take advantage of your free guess, and you will have a chance to win a great trophy and possibly more!
- We have a new Techo Screensaver - check it
- The Neopets office had a bizarre visitor
today... he came in and demanded something called a 'Chia Pop' and then left... we are all a bit confused.
- We have a new Mystery Pic today.
The answer to Wednesday's competition was 'The Lair of the Beast in Tyrannia'.

four winners, all belonging to Faerie_Usuki_Kitten!
- Ever wondered how Captain Threelegs came to run the Swashbuckling Academy? Click
here to find out!
- We kick off today with a Peophin Special in the
- Neopets gets a big upgrade today. We are replacing one of our database machines, and its going to take
about two hours to transfer all the information across from the old one. If you are reading this, chances
are that it worked :) Neopets should be much faster from now on!
- We fixed Deckball so that you only have to view
the introduction screen once.
- Some new Techo Battle Items have gone on sale in the Defence and Battle Magic shops !

released. Its you vs. Gribblet, the pirate petpet. May the best man win!

ingredient she needed to make Techo Morphing Potions!
- A new Caption Contest has been
launched. It seems a pair of pirates have discovered a giant Chokato fruit !??!

Also, the auction script has been running all day, we still have about 68,000 auctions to process, so
please be patient :)

making some new Techo shaped cookies. Get them while they are still warm :)

Battledome moves - Techo Slam, Techo Leap
and Techo Slide
- Deckball now gives out Dubloons if you get
over 5 goals in the survival mode, or 350 points in the timed mode. We find that if you dont continually
keep your finger on forward, but take it slow and hope the opponent hits his own goal, its easier to win :)
- The auctions were pretty badly backed up,
and taking a long time to process. We have fixed the problem, and they should be running smoothly from now on.
- DECKBALL is here at last. Yes, raise
the killick and haul wind to Krawk Island to play Neopets' latest game!
Ewww... thats SO year 2!
Lets play DECKBALL!
- We have a new Lenny Conundrum today.
The answer to last week's conundrum was 'Six Flags'. She actually had the material for seven if you
worked it out mathematically, but it was physically impossible to cut seven whole flags out of that
material. She settled for 6 and made a rather fetching pirate T-shirt out of the remaining fabric :)
- YOU HAVE A NEW CHALLENGER!!! - Yes, the Flaming Meerca has arrived,
and he takes no prisoners! Click here
- We uploaded a new version of Splat-A-Sloth
that has a selection for Low/High quality. Select Low if it runs too slowly on your computer.
- We have a new Mystery Pic
competition out today. The answer to last week's pic was 'Krawk Island'. Lenny Conundrum will
be coming out later today, and we have decided to do it every two weeks from now on.

guessed we will give you another chance.
