I've been scouring past Editorials, but can't find the answer to this question. Am I allowed to mention that my pet has 2 Beauty Contest trophies when I'm trying to trade her away to another player, or is this against the rules? Would it be suspicious if I trade my Orange Koi (with gold and silver trophies) to someone else for, say, a Royalboy Cybunny? There are a couple of artists who want my Koi, because they want to continue earning her trophies. The Help Neoboard, Art Neoboard, and Pound Neoboard all have no idea. Thanks for publishing my question! ~ indulgences
Hi there! Everyone has different things they look for or ways to value pets, whether it be colour, stats, name, or trophies won. If someone values one over the other and agrees to a trade, who are we to say no?

Hi tnt! There was a debate in a neoboards topic I was on on what is considered copying for the art contest. Someone drew a few pictures that were clearly hand drawn, but were also nearly direct copies of existing unique site artwork (as practice) such as shopkeepers. One person claimed that as long as the person drew it, even if it looked almost identical to an existing picture that it was OK and they should submit the pictures. My understanding was this is considered "eyeballing" and unless the picture had something unique about it (such as a different pose, background, style, etc) that it is a form of copying and would be hard to tell if it wasn't just traced. Where are the limits on eyeballing pre existing neopets images for the art contest? Can someone just re-draw an existing picture, put a misty background behind it, change which direction the eyes face and call it good? Please remove my username. ~ username removed
Hi! So the general idea is right, that if you drew it yourself and there is a unique factor to it, you're good. The rule of thumb is if it is mostly done yourself, you'll be okay (so a background is good, a different eye direction is not), but our illustrious art judge has the final say, as a lot of this is up to her interpretation.

Hi! So, um, is it possible to ask you to redraw a wearble item? Sort of like ALL the eyeshadows for the Buzz species? None of them fit on a females eyelids, they only cover the top half of the eyelid in an awkward fashion. Now, imagine a Buzz giving you puppy eyes to try to convince you to do the redraw. *-* ~ biipa
Hi! So while I understand your pain, there is no way to make wearables different for male or female pets, without having completely separate items. Sorry Buzz, get those puppy eyes off of me, there's nothing I can do!

Hi TNT! *pours cups of borovan* So, as we all know, there are items that are untradable and unsellable. But I'm curious as to why that is, especially for items that people get in the beginning of the game. It seems like it'd be a good way for beginners to make neopoints early. ~ jesswoj
For the items you receive when creating an account, they are meant to help new players get started caring for their pets and using the various types of items, not to be sold (plus, if everyone was selling them, they wouldn't get worth very much anyway, would they?).

So in the hub the say jellyneo is a fan site, but I was wondering if you trust it for the players to sign up? I don't know much about the site and was wondering if it was safe to sign up for. Please remove my username. Thanks ~ username removed
Yes, we do! We wouldn't support a site we didn't trust our users with, and Jellyneo is a great place to get information or help on all things Neopets! One bit of advice we always recommend is to never use your same username and password on any other site, just as a safety measure.

*Happy Thoughts*

Janet and Jane: The Case of the Framed Detectives: Part Seven
Alright, so going where all of this began in the middle of the night with practically my least favorite Neopet while I was still framed for something I didn't do wasn't the best idea. We didn't even tell the others that we were going out. We maybe should have done that.

Just a Rumor
They'd all heard the rumors. She had heard them, too. Rumors that seemed to surround one of the many, many occupants who had taken up residence in the Haunted Woods. Granted, the stories were not as wide spread as ones centered around beings like The Brain Tree, The Esophagor and even Eliv Thade. But they still existed.

On the Other Side of the Wall
I met Sibbie on the other side of the wall, at the spot where the sun shines down and warms the old, red bricks. “What’s your name?” she asks, ears perked up and eyes bright with interest. She looks like the kind of ‘pet that I would purposefully avoid- overly-optimistic and always ‘looking on the bright side.’

The Wrong Side of the Law
The future is a scary place. At least this was the conclusion Siren had come to. The Desert Hissi had been dreading this moment for a long time, and now it had come he was still dreading it.
