Neopets/Pound

Please remove my username. So, we can sell Petpets, right? What if we aged high-end Petpets and then sold them attached to a Neopet for more than the Petpet is worth? For example, instead of selling just a Slorg I would be selling an aged Slorg, and the Neopet it was attached to would just be a bonus and no profit would be made off the Neopet, just the Petpet and the aged status. Is this against the rules? ~username removed
Yes, this would be against the rules. You may not sell Neopets, and therefore you may not sell equipped Petpets. The concept is similar to the fact that you can't get away with selling stolen goods by claiming you were actually only selling the bag they were in.

If someone gets a Draik Egg (lucky them!) and has a Lutari with a great name, can they put the Lutari in the Pound and create a Draik with the same name? ~boy_of_slytherin
No. The Lutari will run away, but it won't cease to exist. The name would not be available for the Draik. We recommend that the lucky hypothetical person go to the Trading Post and see if they could trade their Draik Egg for a Draik Morphing Potion to use on the Lutari.

Goodness, TNT! I finally thought that I'd come up with a good design for my one Kougra, and then I log on to find that there is now a paint brush for it. Now everyone is going to think that I stole my idea from the Eventide Paint Brush! I promise, I can be creative sometimes. D: Also, happy January. This month needs more holidays. ~i__am_awesome
Now you know how we feel sometimes! D: Great minds often think alike. :)

Hey, TNT. *throws cheese* I've only just noticed that, when you look on my island Bruce Cibe's lookup, the word "Island" is in a peachy colour... is that normal, or am I going crazy? ~bl222
When we released the Eventide Paint Brush we realised that the functionality that makes the paint brush colour word reflect its color stopped working at some point. We fixed it, and that's what you're now seeing. Older players may recall that's how it always used to be.

Hey TNT, that new eventide colour is very nice. I noticed, however, that when you revealed the eventide Aisha in the news it didn't have the Aisha's signature collar on. Is this intentional, or did someone goof? ~pikakeet
Goof? We don't goof! Okay, yeah, we goofed... but we managed to fix it quickly! Eventide Aishas now come with collars, and those that had already been painted prior that have had the collar sent to their account.

TNT, please stop releasing new colors. You have tons of Neopets who cannot yet be painted in your existing colors -- focus your artists on these before releasing yet another new color. Thank you. ~pheekz
While we understand your point of view, please understand that for the sake of variety, we don't want to completely finish off a colour before adding a new one. That way there's always a surprise around the corner, and not a solid year of swamp gas painted Neopets.

As for the Eventide Paint Brush, it was born more out of necessity. Some players may notice that, on Neopet days, we typically release one complex and one simple colour (you guys often call these "colourfills") for each species. For the Aisha, we had completely run out of simple colours, and therefore needed to create a new colourfill paint brush, which is what eventide is. Eventide falls into the simple (white / shadow / orange, etc.) pool of colours, and will not take the spot of the more complex colours (maractite / transparent / water, etc.)

Now, you said that if someone abandoned the Neopet they chose as their dream Neopet and someone else owns them, that Neopet is then disqualified. What if they moved the Neopet to a side or it was with a different account for a little bit but is back to the original account before Christmas? ~perduco
Hypothetically speaking, if you return the Neopet to the original account before Day of Giving eve, then everything should be fine and it would not be disqualified.

I read on a website that, when a user tries to transfer a Lutari, it simply disappears. Will the owner lose the Lutari and not be able to ever get it back again? ~stygimoloch_12
If a player attempts to abandon their Lutari in the Pound, then they will, indeed, run off and disappear into the wild forever. Transferring a Lutari is not possible, as there is no option to do so on the page, which means they won't run away (though they may be cross at their owner for a few days for even thinking about it).

Hey, so you know how, when you change a few things on Neopets and you're happy with it, but then sometimes feel like you're going to miss the old thing that you fixed? Well, I was thinking about the unconverted Neopets or whatever you call them... well, my best friend had a UC Neopet, but then when she painted it royal it was normal. She was not in the mood to do anything later. So I was thinking that, when you go to the Rainbow Pool to paint a Neopet pirate / Halloween / faerie / royal, etc., perhaps you could have a choice of keeping it normal or unconverted. That would make my friend really happy. :) ~tulituli9025
Whoops. :X There is no possible way for unconverted Neopets to be created by any means. It's just artwork that hasn't been updated, not a type of colour. Therefore, when you paint an unconverted Neopet, it's going to become whatever the current artwork for that colour is. There is no way to paint a Neopet and have the unconverted aspect preserved, and that is not a functionality we have any plans to change.

When a new Neopet or Petpet is created, who gets to choose the name / how is that decided on? ~olysseus
After the artist designs the Neopet / Petpet, the image is sent to our Content and Writing Departments, who brainstorm a list of different names. We then narrow it down to our favourites before the head of content decides what the final name will be.
