Re: Polka Dot and Transparent Shoryu

I think Polka Dot looks a bit like it's wearing a onesie/bodysuit with a balaclava hood. The colours don't help the babyish effect.

Daily Dare is back

Daily Dare has returned after two years off. It seems to be just as before with easier Abigail challenges and harder AAA challenges. The first challenge yesterday/today is Dueling Decks. Which is boring but doable for AAA's score (you have to almost win, then let Zenco win a card, and repeat until y...

Re: Item artwork "borrowed" from fansite

I'm pretty sure it's copyright that the artist owns, not a trademark. Trademarks have to be registered, but copyright is automatic and usually belongs to the creator. As long as they didn't give the rights away (like submitting it into a contest) then you're right that Neopets would not legally be a...

Re: Woodland and Eventide Scorchio

The tree is amazing and the artist certainly tried to come up with a new take on Woodland. I'm still not convinced that the Scorchio pulls it off. It's one thing to turn a Lenny into a macaw or a Gelert into a dalmation, but Scorchios don't look anything like trees, and taking off the wings and tack...

Re: Woodland and Eventide Scorchio

I fail to see how that's Woodland. That's a paint splattered (Graffiti? Jackson Pollock?) Scorchio standing in front of a slightly pathetic bush.

Re: Layoffs at Neopets

The end of pet days as we knew them? Only content was new colours, and fail on the image size too. Or maybe they are unfinished so they don't want to show us higher resolutions? I don't think whoever wrote today's news knows much about Neopets. ("Raising" Scorchios?) And I think they probably did a ...

Re: Pastel and Stealthy Gelert

I can't help but wonder how many more new colours they'll bring out on pet days. Maybe these Gelerts will even be the last ones.

It's not like they can make money from bringing out new colours, after all.

Re: Layoffs at Neopets

They did do Gelert day - they just tacked it on to the end of previous week's news.

No images of the new colours. No clothes or any other Gelert related items. No art gallery. They did manage some poems.

Re: Layoffs at Neopets

There is an official message from the CEO of Jumpstart, no less: http://www.neopets.com/neoboards/topic.phtml?topic=156927849 I'm not convinced. Here's my translation: a recent restructuring of our resources We got rid of the old staff to replace them with outsourced workers in Asia and/or existing ...

I'd come! Ditto E with the plenty of notice for train fares thing, though.

Re: Tarla's Mystery Tour

I managed to get my last mist on Wednesday, even though I was away on holiday on a boat and with not much chance of internet access. I was actually very lucky and as soon as I got online (with the dongle balanced on my head- that was the only way I seemed to be able to get a signal!) and went to Jel...

Re: Altador Cup '10!

Yeah, I thought from the way it was phrased that it was for being loyal to a particular team and not just to the event, but I was wrong. And it wouldn't make much sense to penalise people for joining a new team or for having chosen to play for Brightvale in one of the first two cups.

Re: Altador Cup 10!

You get more stuff when you join if you join a team you've played for before- I've always played for Roo Island, and I got four extra items as well as the team background when I joined Roo Island this year.

Camouflage and Relic Hissi

http://images.neopets.com/images/nf/hissi_camouflage_happy.png http://images.neopets.com/images/nf/hissi_relic_happy.png For once, a sensible colour palette for Camo, albeit a very boring and muddy one. And somehow, I had always thought of the Hissi as moving through sand, though plenty of snakes l...

Re: Gold and Snow Lupe

I actually really like the non-fussiness of these two colours. They don't follow the pattern of other pets in gold and snow, which will annoy some people (and often does annoy me) but I like the fact that gold is quite plain and not super-shiny and that snow doesn't have ugly and unnecessary bits of...
