- IT'S A GIANT HUNGRY CHOMBY - Uh oh. Looks like the
Defenders of Neopia need your help!
- NEW PRELOADERS - Yes, many of the games around the site now feature new
preloaders (the graphics that load when the game is being loaded.) No more spinning
Blumaroo head! To try out the new ones why not play Eliv Thade
or Sutek's Tomb.
- If you know someone who is feeling particularly Snotty why
not send them this Meuka Neogreeting to cheer them up?
- TCG UPDATE - Yes, good news. When we originally launched the TCG Redemption Area
we only put half of the available cards in as possible prizes. We were going to add the rest as other
prizes around the site, but that didn't work out. Anyway, we have now added every single card into the mix so you have
a chance to get the cards that you couldn't before.
When the Battle for Meridell expansion comes out, any codes you get from those booster packs
will give you a Meridell card instead. Hope that makes sense! Those codes will start WC02 as opposed

- Today's Better Than You features Lady Osiri. Can
you match her elite skills at Sutek's Tomb?
- Lupes can now be painted a rather fetching Striped colour.

>Welcome to the Neopets Servers, Mr. Sloth
[sloth@neopets]$ that's Dr. to you
- Ahhhh, your puny intruder-detection systems and flimsy security were no match for a super-villain
such as myself. Now let's see what havoc I can create...
- Soon every computer in the world will have this Desktop Background!
- Now you can adopt a Hasee, Slorg, or Peo, exactly as nature intended them to be!
- It seems that the Gallery Spotlight has been won
by dmdacus with "Morganna's Mutant Madness". Fantastic! Drop me a note when I next invade
the world, it seems that you may be able to help.
- BUBBLES... uggh. What type of bubbles?
That's the most horrible thing I've ever heard of. Nobody would ever want to play a game like that.
Stupid Neopets Team, no wonder this site is going down the pan.

Bah... Never Mind
- Why, no Neohome is complete without matching
- Let's see what nice things you fools have to say about me in the Caption Contest.
Anything not befitting a hero such as me will, of course, be deleted. I may even *FREEZE*
your account if you are rude. Yes, wouldn't that be fun, now where do they put that freeze button...?
- Now when you play Splat-A-Sloth you
earn 100% less Neopoints. Serves you right, foolish mortals.

- Propaganda... What do you mean? I think you would look lovely in that
T-Shirt, and that poster would look great on your wall.

30% more customers away than its leading competition.
- Aww... look at this cute little Meerca. Much prettier than those other
- Is there anybody in your life that you really, really ... want to see mutated and enslave..
erm.. I mean adore. Why not send them a Sloth Valentine?
SITE UPDATE - Sorry we were having some technical problems earlier today. We seem to have sorted
them out now, oops! If anything weird happens on the site today, then don't worry, it's most probably
a glitch in the database... or sunspots.
- By popular demand, another TCG Card from our upcoming expansion set!
This one is another Location card. Locations are found in your main play deck, can be played into a single
arena. It's behaviour only affects challenges within that arena.
- Sorry about the delay, Issue 123 of the Neopian Times
has just been released. Catch up on all the adventures, stories and top tips now!
- Those cunning pirates at the Smuggler's Cove
have bagged themselves a whole crate-load of Pocket Lab Rays... if you want to find out what
they do, you better hurry before they sell out!
- Here is a not too subtle reminder that Friday is Elephante Day and you should start sending
in your Elephante-themed spotlights, poems and pictures as soon as possible.
