The Cup Half Full
The Altador Cup is now in its tenth year! Eighteen teams from all over Neopia have once again gathered at the Colosseum to fight in the battle that is sports! Choose a team and help support them by playing Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger, Make Some Noise, and Shootout Showdown! You might even earn some cool prizes along the way!

Walking on Negg-shells
The Festival of Neggs has returned to Neopia! Strangely though, Neopia's greatest Negg-enthusiast, Kari the Negg Faerie, is nowhere to be found! In her place, a Pink Cybunny named Topsi has stepped up to lead the festival. Can you find Topsi and his spiffy overalls each day? If so, you may be rewarded with some neat spring-themed prizes!

Sever Downtime
Anyone browsing the site recently will have run into some pretty serious lag issues.

TNT say they have identified the issues and will be doing another re-juggling of the servers, starting at 9 PM NST on 15 January and concluding at 9 AM NST on 16 January (5 AM 16/1 - 5 PM 16/1 UTC). Neopets will be down during this time.

The Advent Calendar

In the bleak mid-winter...
All over Neopia, stockings are being hung, presents are being wrapped, and the chestnuts are looking nervous. It is Christmas time again.

While we at Neodex HQ are throwing another log-book on the fire, you can visit the Advent Calendar to receive a free gift every day in December. Check out what gifts you've received so far!

NEW CHALLENGER APPROACHING!
With half of the United States buried under record snowfall, now seems like the perfect time to stay inside, keep safe and warm, and play the 2014 Games Master Challenge! This year's challenge is now live, so head on over to the Neopets website, submit some scores, and earn some exclusive prizes!

This year, there are no teams. Instead, AAA will be issuing two challenges each day of the event. It looks like there will be a special prize for completing each challenge on the day it is released, so remember to check in with AAA everyday! Discuss GMC '14 at the PinkPT Forums!

New Neopet
While celebrating Neopets' fifteenth birthday, TNT have discovered a new species of Neopet. The Vandagyre is the 55th Neopet species, and the first Neopet to be released in six years.

This week has been full of surprises to celebrate the site's birthday, including new avatars and site themes, and some sorely appreciate new features/bug fixes. Discuss the birthday updates over at the PinkPT forums!

9 September 2014

The Habitarium

RIP Habitarium, Petpet Park
In order to transition to their new, JumpStart owned hardware, TNT will be taking the site down for maintenance for an estimated two days, either this week or next week. Although most of the site will come back online unaffected, the Habitarium and Petpet Park will not be returning.

Discuss the downtime and the end of the Habitarium at the PinkPT forums!

Desert Diplomat
Princess Amira is in a bit of a tight spot! On August 7th, Amira invited rulers from all over Neopia to her palace in Sakhmet to talk politics. Unfortunately for our favorite Aisha Princess, a band of devious thieves have infiltrated the palace and stolen an important item from each dignitary. It looks like a little Desert Diplomacy will be needed to prevent an international incident!

Gadsgadsbogen

Gadsgadsbogen! Literally translating to good good day, it's a time for celebration, dancing, and fruit. Every year, throughout the 'Month of Running', restockers and Mystery Islanders alike celebrate the coming of new fruit to the island.

Here on Neodex, we're seeing some new fruit too; the fruit of effort. Starting this month, we're introducing a Projects page. Here, we'll keep you updated on current happenings, events, and efforts on NeoDex. We'll say something "big" is going to happen soon, but until then, don't be surprised if you see a few Wockies around. And with that, we wish you a good good day. wocky.gif

The month after the year before.

It's a brand new year, the time for writing "2013" and then immediately scribbling it out, for making the regular empty promise to eat less chocolate, and for the mad panic to get in shape after over-indulging at Christmas and New Year's.

Nevertheless, best wishes for 2014 and your New Year's resolutions: I hope this year brings you the joy and happiness you richly deserve.

Baby, it's cold outside.

Ladies and gentlemen, I am afraid there is simply no way to put this off any longer: Christmas is coming.

While we huddle for warmth like Darblats in the subzero temperatures of Neodex HQ, we can at least keep ourselves entertained with the Advent Calendar, which returns every day for the month of December, and the Snowager, who is in hibernation this month.

Neopets turns 14

The 15th November this year marks the site's 14th birthday. As well as being able to send five scores per game per day until Sunday, you can get a free goodie bag from the NC Mall and use the code Y15BIRTHDAY for a discount.

Many happy returns, Neopets, and here's to the next 14.

The Gelerts of War

The War for the Obelisk is upon us! Six factions from across Neopia are furiously fighting to gain control of a mysterious obelisk that was unearthed in Tyrannia! If you're ready to join the fray, then head on over to the obelisk, pick a side, and prepare to fight in the Battledome!

"I'll be back...!"
Battledome Retires

The Battledome closed today after being a staple of Neopets life for almost twelve years. It's not all bad news though, TNT have promised a new version before New Year's, but no date as of yet.

Has the BD been in dire need of a redo, or is this just another kick in the nostalgia? I'm keeping an open mind, and if you're eager to see what the new Battledome will be like, why not apply for the closed beta?

Something Has Happened!

Click me!

A piece of cake suddenly falls out of the sky and lands in your lap! What does it mean?

Aaand... We're back.

If you can read this, that means the Neodex is back up after a week's worth of server troubles. I guess we were tempting fate by having the Down For Maintenance Pteri as our featured article!

Sorry for the outage, gang!

Altador Cup Returns

The Altador Cup returns.

Happy Valentine's Day!

St Valentine's Day is on us again, I hope you have a good time making someone's day very special indeed. I meanwhile will be scoffing my way through heart-shaped chocolates by the heart-shaped kilo, crying and rocking silently back and forth to myself in the darkness.

Erm, so, yeah. Happy valentine's everybody.

Today's Bonfire Night in the UK, so the Neodex office is going to be spending the evening scoffing jacket potatoes and watching the fireworks.

Safety first, folks: if you're going to be celebrating Bonfire night, wrap up warm and don't hold your sparkler by the business end.

R.I.P. IDB
After some tragic server troubles, our friends at the In-Depth Battlepedia have been forced close their site. Though they are currently looking for a new home for their database, at this point, things are still in the discussion phase. You can read the how and the why in Finalhit's own words.

On behalf of the Neodex, I would like to thank the IDB for their years of service to the greater Neopets fandom. Your site was truly amazing, and it will be missed very much.

P.S.: That whole Disappearance of Krawk Island thing is still going on. Make sure to participate for mad loot.

MISSING: Krawk Island
It looks like the desert is no longer the only land in Neopia that is "lost". Late yesterday, Krawk Island mysteriously vanished! All that is left of the former pirate haven is a Solitary Shanty! Can you help Gavril McGill find Krawk Island before it is too late?

We've finally finished updating all the articles on the Neopet Species.

They've now all got Battledome sections and are featuring a brand new template with 25% more snazziness for your buck. Go take a look. Go on, you know you want to.

WARNING: Too much snazziness can lead to dapperism and stylishnosity. Consume chic responsibly.

Merry Crimbo

Whether you are flopped out on the sofa feeling like a bag of wet cement or trying to find where you left your game boy amongst all that wrapping paper, I hope you've had a merry Christmas and a good haul of presents this year! I've been busy tidying up the Neodex's office after our Christmas party: it rather looks like someone was sitting on the photocopier...

Back in Neopia - Xandra's been defeated and the Faeries are free, and if you have no idea what I'm talking about, go check our article on The Faerie's Ruin. Still an epilogue to come, folks! Meanwhile, you can continue collecting daily prizes from the Advent Calendar for the rest of December.

10 May 2009

Altadorcup.net* have broken the news as to which teams are in and out this year in the Altador Cup, thanks to paying careful attention to the plot board logos. Looks like all you Brightvale Supporters are going to be a bit disappointed.

kikolake.gif

In the mean time, if you're eager for some AC-tion (see what I did there? Haw haw...), why don't you read up on the first and second tournaments over at the Neodex? Coverage for the most recent tournament is still a bit patchy - so why don't you get involved and get it up to scratch? ^^

* Looks like it was actually The Daily Neopets to get this story first! D'oh!

A NEOCOLA CONSPIRACY REVEALED?

Is World Domination on Neocola's Agenda?
Well, no. Not really. But I had to get your attention somehow.

For a brand of more mundane soft drinks than their competitor Achyfi, Neocola does have an odd taste in corporate sponsorship, though. That's a bit weird. Someone should look into that.

Any budding investigators interested in the darker side of their favourite soft drink - and I'm not just talking about dissolving teeth - would do well to start with the Neodex's overview of the brand: Neocola is the current featured article at the Neodex.

Good night, God bless, much love.

14 April 2009

Hey there, listeners!

I'd just like to draw your attention for a moment to The Neodex, Pink Poogle Toy's Neopets wiki - an 'encyclopaedia Neopia' that anyone can edit.

(Yeah, that's what the 'wiki' link at the top is for. I thought it was a typo, too, but apparently we have nothing to do with Nintendo ;))

Eliv thinks the Neodex is 'a fern thirty'
There's a lot of cool stuff on the Neodex - if you're curious as to what the low-down is with Lord Kass, how many colours a Cirrus comes in, what's the deal with the ruins in Maraqua, or what the Advent Calendar prizes were in 2001, the Neodex should be your first-stop in finding out.

What's more is that the Neodex needs your help - if you ever wanted to contribute to PPT, now's your chance. Stick at it, and you may even find yourself elevated into the higher echelons Kym's seriously secret society of staff. :)

Interested? You blooming well should be, we even get pizza.

M.
