This was my Random Contest entry for the Neopia Post-Apocalypse theme. Unfortunately it didn’t place, probably because it broke the fourth wall too much. Well, that and it’s just a picture of AAA. :P I still had fun drawing it!
This feels relevant again.
Since the site is having problems loading, here is a copy of today’s news for those who have been unable to access it:
We’re back! - Well, mostly! We wanted to get the site back up for you ASAP so we’ve turned most everything back on, but there are a few pieces still in transition. Here’s a (hopefully) handy list:
- The Mall: You won’t be able to redeem NC cards or purchase any items yet.
- Premium Account Management: Purchasing or updating a Premium membership not functioning at the moment. (If you already have Premium, that will be working fine across the site. If you run into any problems, though, please let us know!)
- Premium Scratchcards: The system that sends these out is still in transition so they won’t be arriving today like they usually do. We’ll be sending these out once everything is back to normal!
- Timed content: In some cases, some things may be running on weird schedules for a bit. (For you techies, our crons are back online but they need to catch up.)
That’s it! There will be no New Features today but we’ll keep everyone updated on the things above as they come back online. In the meantime, if you see anything weird, please feel free to report it to us! If you aren’t sure whether it’s something affected by the above list, you can definitely report it anyway just to be safe. Thanks for your help!
Neopets is back up. From what I can see, nothing I care about has been removed and all of the old Daily Dare/GMC pages are still intact. Thanks TNT! Welcome back!
They seem to be handling the transition pretty well!
will they disappear from the image emporium??
Yes, the images are hosted on Neopets’ servers, so if TNT deletes them they are gone for good.
I’m a little sad to see Habitarium go, but I do look forward for whats to come after the transition.
Yeah, it’s a bummer when stuff on the site gets removed, but in the case of the Habitarium I feel it was only a matter of time. It was a project that was outsourced to Gogogic, which as far as I can tell no longer exists. Without them Habitarium remained unfinished and unsupported. Considering all of the problems it had that were never going to be fixed, it’s probably for the best. I’m confident TNT will give us new ways to make NP after they get settled in.
Speaking of the transition, TNT may take this opportunity to remove content from their servers that are not displayed on the site anymore. This includes stuff used in previous plots, site events, games, etc. I encourage everyone to save the images they really care about just in case! Dr. Sloth’s Neopets Image Emporium is a great tool for this.
So glad to hear TNT is finally moving! I hope the transition goes smoothly for them.
More third place trophies for the trophy pile. AAA would not approve.
