Hey CQ, quick question. The Lenny Conundrum hasn't updated in quite a while - was it just overlooked or are TNT aware of the issue, and will there be a new Conundrum soon? Thanks in advance, and I appreciate all the work you all put into keeping Neopets full of new content for us users :3 ~ evin_the_fae
The Lenny Conundrum was retired, quite a while ago (before my Neo-time). Sorry! But there are lots of other puzzles and such to keep you busy!

*Carefully sets a Cobweb Cake down in front of you* Hi Country Queen - there is a lot of chatter in NeoBoards about using side accounts to make NP's while problems with Main account get worked out. I thought this was against the rules but several Neopians are saying I am incorrect. Could you please clarify? Thanks so much, lisa_lisa00
*Raises an eyebrow and smells cake* Alright, I accept your offering young Neopian. If you do not have access to your main account, you are able to pick one side account to treat like a new main while the issues are worked out. Once you get your main back, you can begin using it again as long as you stop earning NP on your side.

On October 7th, the news was updated to read: "Calling all collectors! The Neopian Post Office will soon be releasing a special stamp inspired by Hannah and a never-before-seen Brucey B. Avatar. Stay tuned!" This sparked a lot of excitement along with confusion. Users were quick to point out that while the news says avatar, and it looked like a stamp collector avatar, it was uploaded as an item image (same as the Hannah Stamp), rather than following the avatar image format. Another mystery is that all previous stamp collector avatars were based on a previously-existing stamp in the album to collect, but there is no such Brucey B stamp (yet). Is there anything you can say to clear up some of our confusion? Inquiring collectors would like to know! ~ hisprincess
I wouldn't get too caught up in the image - that was uploaded for the news so it would be easy to see, it isn't the actual avatar image! As for your other questions, you'll just have to wait and seeeeee.

Hey CQ! Last year I was super excited to partake in the Haunted Hijinks NC Mall event. My question, which I'm sure a lot of others would love to know, is if there will be a haunted hijinks this year! p.s. If you could please remove my username, I'd appreciate it! Thank you! ~ username removed
There will indeed! So mark your calendars, it will be here soon!

I'd like a clarification of something from two weeks ago's editorial. "I recently created a new side account and adopted several neopets out of the pound. One of these neopets had a petpet attached. At first I thought I'd just leave it be, but then I looked the petpet up and found out it was valuable. Can I sell the petpet if I tranfer it to my main first, or is this considered using a side account to cheat? P.S. Please remove my username. ~ username removed Hi! You adopted the petpet, it's yours to do what you want with! If you transfer it to your main, you can sell it if you want to." This makes it sound like it's okay to use the pound for financial gain. This text "Note: The Neopian Pound is not to be abused for financial gain. Selling Neopets, or profiting from abandoned Neopets is a freezable offence." is found on the first page of the pound. This makes it sound like adopting a pet to sell it's petpet is not okay but your past editorial makes it sound okay. Please advice. ~ johnnydeppluver1222
Hi! So the notice on the Pound page refers to trading Neopets for neopoints (or neopoint items) via the Pound. You can trade Neopet for other Neopets, but not anything else, and doing so is a freezable offense. However, adopting a pet and realizing it has a petpet is a different issue - that's an item we cannot force you to keep (and we have no interest in doing so).

serious question... can vandagyres wear any background, old or new? pls remove username ~ username removed
Yes! Trinkets and backgrounds (with a couple of exceptions) do not involve being places - so any species or color can wear them!

Chasing Treasure: Part Four
As Sam said, the wreck was old. The rot-blackened wood of the hull was riddled with damaged and missing sections, and those that remained were almost more barnacle and seaweed than wood.
