Help us fill the pet database! New or Royal pets needed!

Post by Jazzy » 31 Jul 2010 05:10 pm

We currently have most Neopets pet images available in our pet image database - we have 5463 images out of a total of 5480, as of March 31st 2013.

However, the images we still need are not easy for us to find. We've added every pet available at the Rainbow Pool, and a lot of pets we've found manually, but there are still some remaining. These are mostly cross-dressing royals (ie, female royalboys and male royalgirls) and recently-released pets.

In case you're thinking "female royalboy??" here's a comparison of the male royalboy draik, and the female royalboy draik - the main difference is the eyes:

You get a female royalboy by having a normal royalboy pet and battling the lab scientist BD challenger. This changes the pet's gender without making it into a proper royalgirl.

This is a list of the pets we need:

All you need to do to add a pet is to find one on Neopets (make sure it's the right gender!) which has all the default accessories for that pet, and doesn't have any extra accessories or a background. Here's my female royalboy zafara as an example:
http://www.neopets.com/petlookup.phtml?pet=Secluding
From the pet's lookup, click through to the user lookup, and on here, right-click on Secluding's image and choose "copy image address". You'll have copied a URL that looks like this:
http://pets.neopets.com/cp/ntn27xdn/2/2.png

The 8-letter code is what we're after: ntn27xdn
Take that code and submit it via the needed pets page - click through to the appropriate pet, paste it in the box and hit submit, nice and simple!

This code is unique to each colour, and changes when you add or take away clothes or a bg, which is why the pets have to be in the default state.

If you have a male royalboy pet and we need the female royalboy of that species, you can still help us. If you have a male royalboy and get a gender change from the lab scientist battledome challenger, it will make the pet a female royalboy (it won't make the pet a royalgirl). We would greatly appreciate it if you'd do this for us, because normal female royalboys are very, very hard to find! You can change your pet back to the correct gender as soon as you've copied the URL.

We have to build our database manually, so any submissions are very welcome! We've got no other way of adding the pets which aren't at the rainbow pool, so we can only keep building up our pet database by submissions from helpful Neopians :)

Hi, we need the plain versions of pets, no glitters!

Faster than a speeding cheeseburger, but not by much.
