Frequently Asked Questions
If you have a question, look here to see if it has already been answered. If you still have a question, Neomail Amanda. :)
Q: How often do you update the wishlist?
A: The wishlist is updated daily, typically in the morning. However, real life does happen and there may be times when I fall a few days behind. Please check the "Last Updated" date at the top of the wishlist before mailing me again. Sending me rude mails will get you blocked. Please remember that I am only human and sometimes RL gets hectic.
Q: Will you take my pet and zap it for me?
A: No. It is against the rules to take someone's pet and zap it for them, as stated in Editorial Issue 344.
Q: Why do you list wishes for colours and species that cannot be obtained through the lab ray?
A: Due to the deflation in prices of morphing potions and paint brushes, we decided to consider listing these types of wishes. In October of 2015, we had a guild poll to decide whether or not we wanted to accept wishes for Draik, Krawk, Pirate, Baby, Plushie, Usuki, Quiguki, and Royals. The poll decided that we would start accepting wishes of these colours and species :)
Q: Why don't you list wishes for Ice Boris and Lutaris?
A: We do not list wishes for those pets because they cannot be obtained or transferred. Ice Boris cannot be created, hand-painted or obtained through the lab ray, the only way to create one is if you downloaded the neopets toolbar back in 2004.
Lutaris, however, can be created, hand-painted and obtained through the lab ray, but they cannot be pounded or transferred. When a user tries to pound a lutari, the lutari "runs away" and cannot be adopted by anyone.
Q: Can I wish for a specific pet so I can get an avatar?
A: Please do not wish for avatar pets simply for the avatar. Instead, please use one of the many lending sites for avatar pets.
Q: My account is under 4 months and the color I requested can be adopted by this aged account. Why am I not listed?
A: The reason behind it is pet stats. Under 4 months pet adoptions are restricted to level 1 or 2. The lab is often making pets higher level than that, so we only list those that can accept WHATEVER pet meets the wishlist request.
Q: I have a pet UFA, will you take it and adopt it out for me?
A: No, sorry, we will neither take your pet and zap it for you, nor will we adopt your pet and rehome it for you. You are, however, more than welcome to sign up for our Zappers List or join our guild and list your UFA pets in our Adoption Agency.
Q: I have the lab map, can I help zap pets?
A: Definitely yes! Click here to see the instructions for zappers, and make sure that you Neomail Vanessa so that she can add your name to our list of zappers.
Q: Does the pet have to be zapped by me for it to count as a granted wish?
A: Nope! It doesn't matter how you obtained the pet (zapped it, traded for it, pound-surfing, etc.) it will still count as a granted wish.
Q: Can I join your guild?
A: Sure! Everyone is welcome to join :) Feel free to check out our guild webbie for more information.
Q: I've had wishes listed on the wishlist in the past. Can I add more?
A: Yes you may! Our rule is you may only list up to three (3) pets on our wishlist at a time, but there is no limit to how many wishes you can have granted by us :)
Q: Can I list a wish for a specifically named pet/pick my pet's name?
A: No, sorry, if you have a perfect name in mind you are better off creating/zapping the pet yourself. Most of our zappers adopt random pets from the pound, we don't create new pets to cater to specific name requests.
Q: I see that a lot of people have wished for the same pet as me! How do you decide who gets the pet?
A: It is up to the pet's owner. He or she may randomly select someone, OR they may neomail every person and ask for an application. Applications are NOT required, and you may decline to apply.
Q: There are lots of people wishing for the same pet that I am! How can I improve my chances of being "chosen" as a pet's new owner?
A: See the "Tips" section. :)
Q: If my name is the top name listed for the color/species, will I get the pet first?
A: No. The order of names has nothing to do with who will get a pet. The older wishes are at the bottom, newer wishes are on the top.
Q: Is the wishlist ever edited majorly?
A: We have a wishlist monitoring crew that is always checking through their lists. They will neomail to confirm wishes in their chosen month. Some may mail to confirm wishes twice a year. If you look at the page and you know the month your species mailout is in isn't a good time for you to be able to reply, please mail them ahead of time.
Q: Why can't I submit wishes under my side account and have you list my main's username?
A: According to TNT's rules, we need permission from a user to list their username on a petpage. To eliminate the chance of trolls attempting to list wishes under someone else's username, we require you to mail in the form from the account you wish to be listed under.

Tips & Suggestions
Log on to Neopets frequently. Most zappers prefer to adopt pets out to active users.
Make sure that your current pets are taken care of. Zappers see how you treat your current pets as an indicator of how you would treat a new pet.
Make sure that your information is up-to-date. If you list your dream pets on your lookup, make sure they match with the pets you have listed here. A zapper may think you have changed your mind and not offer you their pet if the dream pets listed on your lookup do not match the pet they have UFA.
Make sure you have room in your NM inbox! If a zapper cannot contact you, they will likely move on to the next wisher.

Important ZYDP Links
The Wishlist This is the page you're on now! It shows all of the wishes we have collected.
ZYDP Adoption Agency Occasionally, our lab rays produce a pet in a color/species combination that has NOT been wished for yet. We're sure these pets can find amazing, loving homes just the same, so we put them into our guild adoption agency. Anyone can adopt these pets.
ZYDP (The Guild) The ZYDP guild was originally founded as a place for Zappers to organize and talk about their lab pets. It's a fun, NR guild that's open to anyone (zapper and non-zapper alike). We have no requirements, just click "Join"! :)
Zapper List This is a list of all of the people who are generous enough to use their lab maps to zap pets for ZYDP. It also has instructions for becoming a zapper. Check it out!
