Editorial


Hello Neopians, Aesop here! Things have been rather hectic since flash ended, and we appreciate you sticking with us while we work through some issues and continue to improve the mobile site. For those of you having trouble with loading your closet in the new customization, we have put together a short survey to help us get to the bottom of this bug https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BMW7DT8! Gutterfoot also wanted to answer some more Mobile questions, so without further ado here comes another Mobile Editorial!

Hi everyone! I know you all are busy with the end of flash, and getting everything done. But will there be more pet slots in the foreseeable future? I think with everything going on, it'd get more users, who have been playing less due to the change, like myself, to come back. Trading for a new pet, working towards saving for a new pet, making an outfit(s) for the new pet, it may give us something to do C: pretty please, I need more space haha. Have a great day! ~~pinkpuppies
Adding more pet slots is definitely a goal for this year. We want to make sure we have everything fixed with customization and have the beta in a better state before moving onto pet slots though. ~~gutterfoot

Hello TNT! I've been hearing a lot of rumors concerning an upcoming conversion that will affect the coding of petpages, pet lookups, and userlookups. I've even heard rumors that petpages will be done away with entirely! There are all these rumors, but I can't seem to find any set-in-stone facts. As someone who loves working on my petpages, and who knows many people who love building petpages for their pets as well, I was hoping you could offer up some information concerning this and may be put some of our fears to rest. Thank you so much!! ~~josephinefarine
We are absolutely not getting rid of petpages, pet lookups, or user lookups! They are an integral part of what makes Neopets Neopets and encourages people to learn to code and show their creativity, which is so important. ~~gutterfoot

I thought I put this rumor to bed, but its woken up in the middle of the night for a glass of water. Fear not! We want to give you access to CSS3 features for all these pages, but can't promise everything will make it in, just in case some of the new code options present security risks. Customizable pages won't be going anywhere, nor do we plan on getting rid of your existing code. However, because we'll be providing tools for making pages mobile friendly, and wrapping them in the mobile friendly site template, some of your old layout code might look broken when viewed on smaller devices. I know for me the fun of coding is in problem solving, so I hope you'll be willing and excited to update and adapt old page templates with the new flexible layout tools when they're eventually rolled out! To read more on the subject, check out the editorial in issue 917! ~~van Doodle

Hi TNT! I've been trying to get my customization on my main to work. I've been taking out alot of items from closet from about 6500 to 3000 but it still does not work! However it does work on my side where I only have about 1300 items. Is it a limit on how much the new version can have in the closet for it to work? Can you please give us a update? Also are you working on updating the new version so we can have more items in it? Alot of us can't customize anymore and I hope that you can fix this soon please! ~~greyfever
This bug has not been easy to identify, but we're working our hardest to try to fix it. It doesn't seem to be related to closet size, as this is happening with accounts that have both small and large closets, but we aren't completely discounting it either. We do recommend having a maximum of 650 items in your closet though, as noted in your preferences. We also just posted up a survey to try to gather more user information here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BMW7DT8 ~~gutterfoot

Do you think after the flash conversion there could be an "I survived the flash conversion of 2021" avatar? It would be quite the milestone for us old-neopians. ;) ~~juliadoglover11405
10000% yes. Hard agree. ~~gutterfoot

Hello TNT! Would it be possible to restore the old shop wizard while the new one gets fixed? Not being able to refresh the results is really annoying, and the old wizard doesn't need Flash anyway, as far as I am aware. Thank you for considering! ~~ petitehirondelline
We actually have a fix for this coming next week! Sorry to keep you all waiting. ~~gutterfoot

Is this the final version of the inventory? It is missing vital links such as to quick stock and SDB and my active pet is reduced to a partial image, which, when clicked, doesn't give its stats. As a user, this page simply doesn't function well. ~jaydeed
We are actually updating the inventory to include these links in our next release! This won't be the final version either, as we are planning future changes as well. ~~gutterfoot

Will there be an option to switch between Classic Mode and Beta Mode when the site overhaul is finished? ~rocket91__h_h
Unfortunately, no. We just can't feasibly maintain two completely different site layouts, so once a page has been converted to the beta, the classic version will no longer remain. ~~gutterfoot

If a user sends in multiple captions for the Caption Contest, how do you choose which one to use? And are you allowed to send in multiple captions? ~~anonymous
Yes users are allowed to send in multiple captions. And if we come across multiple high-quality captions from the same user, we try to pick whichever caption we think fellow Neopians would find the most relatable/humourous.

HAPPY THOUGHTS:

Hey TNT, I'm venturing into the world of professional journalism (just got my first check!) and the excitement of seeing my name in print has been immense. I looked at my profile today and remembered the very first place I ever got published was right here in the Neopian Times, all the way back in Y12, and how excited I was to be in here. Thanks for keeping the site going and for being such a part of my adolescence! ~~qgqg
