Neopia's Fill in the Blank News Source | 21st day of Eating, Yr 26
The Neopian Times Week 62 > Editorial


Are the newly redone Scary Pet Pets (Pwerko, Goulbee, Meowclops) still retired or are they for sale in the Scary Pet Pet shop again?
Ok, this is a once off (I know I said retired items stay retired forever earlier), but due to popular demand and the fact that these are really new Petpets, they have just replaced the not-so-nice ones we are going to make an exception here. For the rest of October they will be on general release in the Spooky Petpet Shop.

Why does Matt the Angry Programmer hate sea bass, bananas, Coca Cola, squash, cream of mushroom burger, egg white, cow's milk, and artichoke? I'm very curious...?
He won't say much, but mentioned that it involves a buffet accident in 1993 that left him permanently scarred.

When is the next Defenders of Neopia challenger coming? Is there going to be another one?
Yup, there are lots of new Defenders challengers planned, a new one should be launched this week or early next.

Fear not Neopia, justic will be done!

Exactly how many times has Adam seen The Goonies?
Oohh... many many times, about the same amount of times he has seen Labyrinth I think.

Are Abominable Snowballs ever going to have any colours they can be painted?
Yes, giving the Spooky Petpets more colours is already on our to do list. Expect many more as Halloween approaches.

What will happen to all those people who have worked hard on defeating all the monsters in Neoqest when Neoquest II comes around? Will they have to start over or will they get a very large sum of money according to what level they are or what?
NeoQuest II is a totally separate game, a sequel to the original. No characters or information will be brought over into NeoQuest II; everyone will have to start from scratch.

How do Peophins walk? Do they walk like seals?
Oh no, they are far too graceful to flop around on their bellys. They magically can glide above the ground - pretty cool huh!

Are items marked "gross food" likely to make Neopets sick, or are they just things that the pets might not like to eat?
They may look rather repulsive, but they won't make your Neopets ill. The Alien Aishas that make them are simply confused, not nasty.

If one of your pets owns a Reptillior, are the others likely to suddenly get Reptillioritus??
Only if they get bitten by it, so if they are particularly mean to the Reptillior yes, otherwise they should be fine.

A while ago, you released some new trading cards featuring Jhudora and Illusen. How do we get them?
These are sold in the Collectable Card Shop although they are pretty rare so you may have more luck in other player's shops or the Trading Post.

This is REEEAAALLY dumb but where is the 'About Us' page?
Its at the bottom of every Neopets page that has a yellow bar down the side. At the very bottom of the page there are some faint grey text links, 'About Us' is one of those.

What are the names of the new Halloween petpets?
Pwerko, Meowclops, Snomorg and Goulblee.

Hey! Adam, are you dressing up for Halloween? If you are what? What about you Donna?
Adam, ha ha! No he NEVER dresses up for Halloween. Myself, I am not sure, maybe a purple Slorg?

Where do I find a babaa besides at the shopwizard. They're very expensive! Also why is all the babaa stuff so rare? They're my favourite but I can't buy a single thing.
The Babaa items are very special, they are only given out when you claim a Petpet rare item code (available when you buy some Petpet stickers or notebooks in Claires/The Icing). No official Neopian shops sells them, although you may find a few in the Trading Post or other player's shops.

Did the Goldfish and Sunny Delight disappear out of my gourmet food list when the Hidden Tower items were retired on the 27th? They have disappeared out of my food list - did I lose the points as well?
They weren't retired, they were just changed into Neopian items. They are still in your Gourmet food list and you still have the points from them, they are just listed as the items that replaced them.

How come Adam and Donna only have less then 10k, if they can give there selfs like 40 million, all my friends wanna know, or are you lying?
What's the point of cheating your own site? Yes we could give ourselves the best of everything but firstly it wouldnt be very fun or fair to anyone else and secondly, we just don't have the time to play anymore.

Why does the Zeenana Stamp description say it tastes like a zeenana when you lick it, when the main page of the stamp section clearly states that each Neopian Stamp Album comes with easy-to-use adhesive pads, so no licking is required?
Maybe it tastes of Zeenana when you lick the front of the stamp?!!?

I am an aspiring author, and would like to write an article for your Neopian Times (being a big user myself!) What are some tips you have for getting my writing published. What types of articles do you look for?
Try to write about something current (New world, items, etc.) Try to stay away from "Rich Vs. Poor" or the common "How to ______" articles. Other than that it's pretty much wide open, though length plays a big part. Your article needs to be at least 1,000 words... try not to get carried away though. Lastly and most importantly, make sure there is apoint to the article.

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.

The Elements: Part Four
And finally, one more change came to pass. Whenever a kid passed me dragging along a Neopet, I informed him that Neopets were your friends, not your little toys.

So what are my plans for the war? Surely I am either one of the warriors or the profiteers, either on the receiving or the giving end.
