  1. Faerie Festival Is Here!

    Looks like TNT posted a message on their board explaining why this is taking so long: Being a pessimist I really doubt the acquisition will change anything on Neopets, but eh, at least they are explaining why they are dragging this thing out.
  2. Looking to buy a Green Kacheek Morphing Potion. If anyone has one, please neomail me
  3. I'm so sorry Anarchy_3_3!

    Anarchy, disorder... those are very... interesting pet names
  4. Do you know any Neopets artists?

    Edited the first post to include all the new artists we found on that Reddit post Will update it as/if we find more.
  5. Do you know any Neopets artists?

    Oooh, thank you so much for the link! Apparently the person who posted that list found those artists by checking the art credits from TCG rule book. Clever! I'll look through their portfolios and link to all their Neopets-related artwork below in case anyone is interested: Claire Hummel: Check out her Neopets tag. Dave Steen (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) (10) (11) (12) (13) (14) (there were way too many on his page, so I just chose these 14) Anthony Conley: (1) Maeve McGrath: (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) (10) (11) (12) Zim McCurtis: (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) Josef Calvento: (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) (10) (11) (12) There were other artists mentioned in the Reddit post, but I couldn't find anything related to Neo on their portfolios :( Oh, I know, but I was referring to official Neopets artists, as in artists who were at some point part of The Neopets Team
  6. One of the main reasons I played and loved Neopets for so long was the art. In my opinion, the site is filled with tons of gorgeous and memorable artwork. I remember I always looked forward to pet days to see what new marquees they'd add to the frontpage because most of them looked so cool. I remember that when JN released their image emporium, I would look up random words just to see what would come up and if I could find artwork I hadn't seen before. I also remember that I hated how there was no way to know who were the people behind the beautiful art on the site. I was so curious about that kind of stuff! I wanted to know who were these artists I admired so much, but there was nothing I could do to find out. I only recognised them by their artstyle, not by their names. So imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon one of these artists on Tumblr! Claire Hummel used to work for Neopets and was one of the main artists there. Apparently she got the job when she was 15? That's crazy! Sometimes she posts her old art from working on the site on her blog. You should check out her Neopets tag to see some of the things she drew. I discovered she drew some of my favourite art pieces on Neo! There's one specific post on her blog that caught my attention, one where she redraws a couple of images from her early days at Neo: It just blows my mind! So this got me thinking. Does any of you happen to know the names of some of the artists who worked at Neopets? If so, would you like to share what you know? UPDATE: More artists below!

    Huh, I've been on Neo for years and I think I've never heard about this. Interesting! So, I did some research (instead of finishing my college assignment) and apparently there's not much you can do. No tricks or tips whatsoever. It is possible to catch them, but it's extremely rare. Found some helpful editorial answers that confirm this: So yeah, you just have to get really lucky.
  8. Neoquest I

    I believe that can be fixed. From TDN's guide:
  9. Faerie Festival Is Here!

    I just love how Fyora kinda tells the Battle Faerie to shut up for a moment Now that you mention it, she does look kinda odd, doesn't she? I suppose it's her facial expression. Jumpstart is not very good at modifying old art.
  10. Faerie Festival Is Here!

    Her statue is still there though, right below the Whirlpool sign. It's also important to remember that the statue doesn't really mean anything anymore. It's just a nod to her whereabouts before the events of the PS2 game took place (right at the beginning of the game, she escapes from her stone prison, as you can see here ). It would be great to see her again though. She has always been my favourite Neopets' villain.
  11. Actually, all of it is reused art Most of the faeries we saw at this year's festival and the ones in the image of the first post come from the Faerie Festival of 2010 (which had already used old art, but at least they updated it and there was new artwork too). Some others come directly from the Faerie Quest page.
  12. Faerie Festival Is Here!

    Now that the festival has been cancelled, I'm still wondering if this is gonna be a new event or the plot that Scrappy said would take place in November.
  13. Faerie Festival Is Here!

    Today I won at Wing It for the first time too, and I also just got neopoints I really want that that wing flower foreground.
  14. Faerie Festival Is Here!

    According to JN's guide, Wing It works like Kiko Pop, meaning that no matter where you click, whether you win or not is gonna be random. So yeah, don't even bother trying to follow the pattern To be honest I expected this event to turn out like this. Jumpstart has no resources and they either have no idea what they're doing or they simply don't care at this point. They are just trying to get a few bucks from the small handful of people who still play Neopets. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I miss Viacom.
  15. Scrappy thinks we haven't noticed?

    I'll eat my shoes if it ever happens It would take so much work to change lookups to be able to display another pet slot. Also, I too find Scrappy a little annoying. She's one of the reasons I stopped reading the editorial.
