Neopia's Fill in the Blank News Source | 19th day of Swimming, Yr 26
The Neopian Times Week 68 > Editorial


Ganuthor are not in the petpets listed at the rainbow pool, what colours can Ganuthor be painted?
Ganuthors can be painted green, blue and brown as well as their normal grey colour. They are also listed on the Petpet Help page.

The one player challenger named Ghost Lupe used a ghost lupe sword against me.When I seached the shop wizard several times there was nobody who had it and the haunted weaponry doesn't have it either.
That is the Ghost Lupe's own personal sword. There is only one in Neopia and I don't think he is going to be giving it away anytime soon.

Why is it that whenever neopets news refered an event and stated the date it will begin, the terms used are 'Monday' '5pm' etc... How do we know which country time its refering to? Couldn't it be better to refer to NST instead?
Whenever we refer to a specific time it is always NST.

Hi I was walking around and all of a sudden it said "Something has happened!" A mysterious man gives you a lottery ticket. Why not click here to play! Does that mean I really got a lottery ticket?
Yes, if that happens you have been given a ticket with a random set of numbers. You can always buy more from the Lottery page if you want to increase your chances of winning.

If you're in the Tyrannian army can you still join the Meridell army?
Yes, they are completely seperate things.

How come the baby pteri is an egg? Then shouldn't all the other baby pets like quiggles and nimmos be eggs too?
The baby Pteri isn't an egg. There isn't a baby Pteri.

What day does the Advent Calender start?
On the 1st December (month of giving) and it continues every day until the 31st of December.

What sound does a Kau make? I look at pet profiles and everyone says they go Moo! How would they know? I think its more like a low bray?
It really depends on your individual pet, you can hear what one particular Kau sounds like Here.

Who is LORD DARIGAN? What does he look like?
You will find out more about Lord Darigan shortly when we release the next episode of the plot.

What is a rainbow snowball? I stumbled upon it on the shop wizard, but there werent any for sale?
It was one of the prizes for last year's Advent Calendar. It is basically a fruity frozen food.

When I fought the Drackonack, the staus thing said that it would only have 10 hit points. But when I fought him, he had about 26. Is this a bug in the system, or is this how it's suppose to be?
It depends how many times you have fought them before, if you continue to battle the same opponent they will get gradually harder.

Why is it that sometimes I see the news for that day a little after midnight NST? Are the Neopets team insomniacs? Or just up really late at the office?
Ahhh that would be Adam and I, sometimes we get inspiration late at night, or we just can't sleep and feel like adding something new. We try to update the site at various times so that players who are on different time zones get updates when they are online too.

Why is it that a fox is in charge of the Tower of Turnips and not a neopet?
Its not a fox, its a female Lupe!

When will the new Bubble Yum packs be hitting stores?
They should be on their way to various stores across the USA and may even be available in some already.

How come you can cancel a course at the Swashbucklers Academy but you can`t at the training school?
The Academy is a lot easier, it is designed for lower level pets who are just starting out and may make mistakes.

How is it that Donna and Adam both got the million neopoint prize instead of normal users? I don't think that that is fair do you?
Ha ha... it was a joke. We really didn't win the million NP prize, there was no such thing, it was just a joke!

I LOVE the ultra scary little spider, but I can't find one anywhere, has it actually been released?
Yes it has been released, it is just incredibly hard to get hold of.

We have a dark faerie and an earth faerie... but what kind of faeries are Illusen and Jhudora?? Certainly there cant be 2 dark and earth faeries?? I mean.. one could only think of the horror that would bring!
Actually there are thousands of dark and earth faeries. Illusen and Jhudora are just two who happen to be very well known. To find out more about the various faeries in Neopia, Click Here!

What is the name of the petpet in the paw of the shopkeeper at the rock pool? (the little green thing)
Hmmm... good question, that isn't even a petpet. I will get the image redrawn first thing on Monday.

In the new game, Spell-or-Starve, do words from Neopets work? For example, the word: LUPE?
Yes, all the pet names and the most common Neopian words are in the Spell or Starve dictionary and we are adding more words all the time.

How did you get your name in the hat for the Plushie Paint brush giveaway? I didn't know about this and it seems unfair.
It was on new features all Thursday, you just had to check the box and press the 'enter' button.

How come you cannot equip the Bronze Short Sword to your pet?
Oopsy, we forgot to check that box :) It should now be equipable.

Need more help?
If you have a question that you think should be answered here, e-mail it to The most common/bizarre questions will appear here next week.

Quote of the Week

"Technically, nothing is impossible, and one can always achieve something they wish to."
