What is a Durian? - Storming_wolf2003
A Durian is a fruit. A big, green thorny fruit that is native to South East Asia. It has a very distinctive, not-so-pleasant smell.

Can you make the Turmaculus a battledome challenger? *sniff* I wanna avenge my little snuggles!! - Celestia_forest
The Turmaculus already is Battledome challenger, you just have to unlock him :)

How come Boochi isn't in the book of evil? - Bluevidel
Boochi isn't really evil, he is just a naughtly little baby that likes to play tricks on other Neopets. It isn't really fair to put him with the likes of Count Von Roo and Dr Sloth.

Has Durian Chia Pop even been released yet? - Megamanexe13238
Yes, but it is very rare.

For almost everything else on the site, there's a trophy or award of some sort for being at the top in scores. Why aren't there trophies for being among the top scorers per opponent in 1-player battledome hi-scores? - Garet_jaxx
I am not sure. We will try to figure out a fair way to do this.

Hey Donna. I noticed your shop was called Black Books. So who's your favourite, Manny, Fran or Bernard? - Stofferboli
Well... they are all fabulous :) As much as I like Fran and Manny, I have to say it is Bernard that makes me laugh the most (although it is very close).

Why is it you can't do anything with the toy sail boats? If it's a toy, shouldn't your neopet be able to play with it? - Veritasdon
In theory yes. Actually we have quite a few of these dual purpose items (including the can of olives) and we are trying to figure out a way to solve this.

Will you be decreasing the rarity of the Snotbunny any time soon? - Plasmascot44
I am afraid not, it is staying a very sought after Petpet!

What is Adam's favorite topping for asparagus? - Bluecougar7
Well, after a certain fan gave Adam an asparagus cook book it has been asparagus baked in the oven and then sprinkled with balsamic vinegar and parmesan cheese!

I remember you updating the looks of the red, green, yellow and blue Kougras, but what about the rest? It's been a long time since you updated the basic colours, so I would expected at least one more updated. Please update the rest!(why not start at the skunk Kougra?) *winkwinknudgenudge* - Lai_sinsi
After the flood of protests I received following the Kougra makeover we have held off re-doing anymore. Instead we are going to draw several designs and put them up for you to vote on. I am not sure if this will be open for all players to vote, or just current Kougra owners, but we will let you know well in advance.

Didn't there used to be a page that could show how many neopoints Adam had. If it still exists where is it? - Monkeyprincess072793
Yes, it still exists. It is the About Us page. You can get to it by clicking on the link at the very bottom of any page with the yellow bar down the side.

WERELUPES!!! They ROCK!!! Yet there is hardly anything about them... :( Could there be a "Werelupe Day". With new werelupe items, pictures, and neopedia articles...and maybe another werelupe AV?!?!?!?! - Coolkidmaster102
Werelupes do indeed rock and you will be pleased to know they will feature very heavily in the PS2 game! Nearer the release date we will add a whole ton of new Werelupe stuff, but we don't want to spoil the surprise so you will have to wait :P

Recently Jhuidah had a makeover and this brought to my attention how the faeries are looking skinnier and more Barbie like with each revamp. I mean, for a children's site that censors the younger users from certain content, why are you holding up this image that beautiful things must be skinny and wearing slinky clothing that isn't exactly covering the most of their bodies?

Although I understand that if you ever got a line of dolls for your merchandising, it would be nice to have the 'Perfect Barbie figure' but still, what do you think this image will do to your users? Many young girls already have this image of to be beautiful you have to be skinny driven into their heads and Jhuidah had been a bit more plump but beautiful in her own way. Now, with this new revamp she's skinnier in this 'Barbie-like image', as if saying that skinny is better than what she was before. - Thefluffiestone

I agree with you here. It was not an intentional point to make Jhuidah skinny. That is just the way one artist drew her. She was always more fuller figured than some of our faeries and I think it is a good thing. The various Faeries should look different rather than have one set body type/shape/size.

Could you please show what the week's challenge on the Better Than You contest was after the contest is over? It's annoying when it just says "Oops! This week's competition is over :(". I'd like to know whether I could have beaten the challenger, had I been up early enough! - Rachie1_42
That is a good idea. I have asked our programmers if that can be done.

I noticed that my things in my neogarden are smaller than my plants and my gnome. Do you think that you could fix that? - Whammyman5
There are a few pieces of garden equipment and furniture that are the wrong size and do need to be fixed. Whenever you see anything that seems out of proportion, please submit it using the Bug Report form and we will get it fixed ASAP.

Uhhh why is the Grey Krawk (petpet) smiling???? - Timothyjuang
We can't have that! Who would have heard of a happy Grey Petpet?!!?

Are there going to be more courses added to the Minigolf Spotlight? I've entered mine a while ago, but there is still just one! - Ericaatje
Yes, a new Minigolf Spotlight winner will be announced next week. There are over 8,000 entries so far!

Could you consider making Kikos easier to get my friend and I try every day to get them but we fail -HELP - Sherlock_is_spoiled
You will be pleased to hear 50,000 Kikos have just been released, if you hurry you may get one!
