*hands out coffee and doughnuts* On behalf of all the other neopians and I, we just want you thank for all of your hard work that you do for the Neopian Times! Do you have tips or suggestions for those still waiting on a weewoo avatar for next year? ~ marbear_4u
*munches on doughnuts* Originality is the biggest thing I can stress. I get lots of weewoo entries for example, and most of them are good enough to be in a normal issue, so try to find an interesting angle that is different from others! Also, quality is key! Double check grammar, spelling, capitalization, width/length for comics/written pieces, etc. With so many good entries to choose from, little things like that are a quick way out.

Came back here after a hiatus of a few years to notice the Evil Things and Monster Sightings board isn't on the Neoboards anymore, nor is the Other Worlds board. Why did they get removed? I always loved hanging out at ETaMS. ~ joystar725
Hi! So over time some of the boards have slowed down more than others. We removed and combined some to try to consolidate where people are hanging out to get them a bit more active again. Check out a new board and find some old friends, and hopefully make some new ones!

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.

I'm a frequent contributor to the Neopian Times, and thought that for my future submissions, I'd do collabs with other players. The thing is, I'm really generous, and would write 99% of the article, while the other player would submit maybe 3-4 lines. Is this considered cheating? Will the other player get in trouble with TNT if it's known that they only contributed 3-4 lines? The players that I talked to on the Help Neoboard think that my generosity veers towards helping the other player to cheat. Thanks for answering this question! ~ indulgences
Hi, collaborators are meant to reward users who were essential to the creation of your piece. Having another user add a couple sentences to help boost their trophy count isn't what it was intended for, and we hope users won't take advantage of it by using it that way.

Last week you had someone ask re: the Folk Ixi Neckpiece saying they couldn't find it. The problem is, there are two spaces between Ixi and Neckpiece. Could you prod someone to fix that? :) ~ jawsch
Done! Fully searchable and easy to find!

*Happy Thoughts

Heya TNT! Please send my kudos to the artist who designed the water Skeith! The wings and the tails are absolutely gorgeous, and for the first time in my long time in Neopia, I'm now considering getting a Skeith of my own. Thank you for the amazing new content you keep providing! ~ alpha_dersecest

Kads & Capers: The Petpet Detective Book 1
Life at the Kadoatery was a simple one. The petpets spent their time there in splendour; relaxing, playing, eating gourmet meals and being groomed and pampered. Each Kadoatie had their own private quarters, leading onto a vast communal space filled with anything a Kad could want.

Caught in The Middle
Looking up at Alvina, I smile as I hand over my latest find: a Bubbling Fungus. Alvina and I have worked together for years now. She knew me back in my poor days when I was nothing special; just a blue skeith with no neopoints to my name. Part of my financial success and climb up the social ladder is due to my dealings with Alvina.
