Tomorrow night (Wednesday, April 17th) starting at 11 PM NST, Neopets.com will be down for about two hours.

 

Once work is done (around 1 AM NST on Thursday) the site will return!

Here's a Neopoint, maybe you can go buy a clue with it.

Am I right with thinking this has to do with something mysterious obelisk like? :3

Hopefully, yes! Now I'm freaking out- c'mon, TNT, let me at the prizes!

I'm going to sit back and be very sceptical that it's going to reveal the prize shop, haha. Way I see it is, if I don't get my hopes up, I won't be disappointed.

.... but in reality I would love for the prize shop to open. PlzTNT.

I feel like with the new theme 'SOON' update it's all right to feel a little optimistic about an update on the war, at least. I think it's strange that the there would be a giant war over a mysterious object but no plotline to follow...

I definitely agree with tinyplasticdinos. There was a whole lot of pumping everyone up for the obelisk war. A whole lot of room for plot to be built surrounding the opening of the obelisk and what we end up finding inside. If there isn't something more to this than the battles, it will be really rather disappointing. At least for me. I want a prize shop as much as the next person, but just leaving the obelisk all open up surprise prize shop here seems like a waste of a great opportunity for puzzles and plot lines and adventure. Still hoping against all odds. I could be easily pacified with an avatar though. Just sayin'.

For some reason I do not see this to be related to the Obelisk War, yes I too am impatient, but I won't assume or have my hopes up that the maintenance has to do with the war prizes.

I'm really hoping for there to be a new species inside the obelisk that we have to fight (hey, why not, it'd be hilarious [to some] to watch people panicking and attempting to buy back the weapons they sold after the war ended) and after that is done, cake for all. :yum: It's not just the undead who enjoy cake!

I didn't fight all that much so if it continued (the plot), I'd take advantage of that and participate in everything at 100%. However, if it just ended and gave me an avatar, I'd be real happy with that too :P.

I dropped by to see what we thought the odds were on the prize shop. Guess I'm not alone.

 

Leaked prizes, Zeph? Do tell?

Oops. I saw the tease about the site theme, but I didn't pursue the link. My fault.

No worries! I posted it a bit later in the evening so it was probably missed by a lot of people XD

I was sleeping when this happened, so it wasn't a bother here. :)  I think I'm going to take most peoples' advice and not get my hopes up that it had to do with anything too important.

 

 

p.s. I noticed on Neopet's news page that they have "April 18" listed with a warning that the site will go down for maintenance on April 17.  Has the news always been a "day ahead" like this?  I don't think I've ever bothered to look closely at the date before. :O
