Throughout the years, I've been a loyal Neopian. Although it has been some time since my last log-on, the changes have devastated me greatly. I have noticed that many of the Neopets have been converted, and as a result have lost their personalities. Each painted Neopet was original and had their own touch. Unfortunately, since Neopets converted the Neopets so that they can wear items, they have lost their unparalleled beauty. They have lost their shebang. Therefore, I have come up with a solution that will solve everything. It will not only be economically beneficial to Neopets, but also to its users. Neopets should have an option where their users pay NC to revert their converted Neopets into the original Neopets. I can name several Neopets that would benefit from this: the faerie Pteri, faerie Draik, Darigan Ixi, and all of the plushie Neopets. I assert that I am not speaking on my behalf, but for the greater good of the Neopet community. ~aznnerdgrl
We beg to differ! Before, all royal Aishas had the exact same art. Aside from the name of the Neopet, a fancied up Pet Page / User Lookup, and their owner's love, there was nothing unique about the Neopet. These days, there are countless ways to customise your Neopet, making it unique not only from every other Neopet, but even from those of the same colour. Neopets are now, more than ever, individuals, rather than a static piece of art with a circle behind it.
With that said, we do realise the art is beloved, especially since it's nostalgic. We aren't ignorant of that fact. However, the system that maintains UCs will continue to remain unsupported. To us, these Neopets are leftovers from the past. Will we ever offer the art itself as a customisation "skin" of sorts for NC? We won't say never since we can't predict the future, but it's not likely. UCs are also coveted because they're rare and we don't want to mess with that, either.
A pretty weak answer re: "we can't predict the future" (hurrr).
But hay. I would be happy with a skin. I would pay like 10 bucks for a skin.
Hi, TNT! I'm sure I'm not the only one who suffers from this, but can we rename our Neopets in the (hopefully near) future through some option? What my 10 year old self thought was cool clearly isn't now -- 11 years on. Please remove my username. ~username removed
This is something we'd like to do (though usernames aren't possible at this time). However, it's an involved, difficult process that would take many months to make available, and as such would be a paid service.
