Apologies for the delay on issue 860, but without further a do here is the editorial for this week...

Hi! So for some weeks now, the Mystery Picture competition has been judged on Wednesday nights (around 9pm NST) instead of Thursday afternoons. However, the contest page itself has each time still said the contest would be open until Thursday. If this new judging schedule is expected to be a permanent change, do you think it would be possible to update the competition page to make it clear that submissions will only be open until Wednesday? Thanks!
Oh dear, thanks for pointing this out! Several of the weekly competitions are now being judged in our Bangalore office, as is this one. I guess noone realized it was supposed to be judged on Thursday NST. We're going to go back to judging Mystery Picture on Thursdays, only it will be done (very early) in the morning on Thursday NST here on.

Hi tnt! Back on March 9th y'all posted in the news that the Darigan Mallard Being released into the pool but I have yet to see it. Any idea when that might be activated? One of my pets has had a mallard for quite some time, haven't had the heart to remove the Mallard cause of how old she is but when I saw the darigan mallard I was super excited and could finally change the Mallard to a color I liked. Thank you in advance for reading this!
You can come back to the Petpet Puddle on Wednesday to finally paint your Mallard Darigan.

Hi TNT! Is there any chance that the content department can add an eventide or a white Naleap to the Petpet Puddle in the near future?
I just sent a paper plane over to the person in charge of this, loaded with freshly baked cookies you didn't give us. So hopefully, it will be done.

Why had the Faerie Dust retired from the NC mall? The other crafting items are in the mall and aren't crafting quests still awarded randomly all year long where you would need that material?
The Faerie Dust is back in the NC Mall and yes, crafting quests appear randomly all year long.

Thank you! We've been watching the results, and we have the next batch of Dyeworks items planned accordingly.

Hi, Jade. I appreciate the efforts the team has been making to hear us and fix things. We all get impatient for fixes but the progress is noticed and very encouraging. // I know it would be very tricky or near impossible to allow us to change our pet's names, but would it be possible for us to change which letters are capped/uncapped? URLs don't seem to be case sensitive so I'm hopeful this could be done, as I know it would make people happy to be able to make that slight adjustment on their pets. Thank you!
Unfortunately, changing the capitalization in pet names is nearly as complicated as changing the entire name.

Night had fallen on Neopia Central, and outside of the Defenders of Neopia's headquarters, a pink Aisha named Mimi was pacing.

Isolde and the Faerie Statue:Part Two
She found herself in a wood dense with trees. Most of their leaves had fallen off. Was it winter? No, it couldn’t be, she thought, because it felt so warm. Their branches stretched every which way and made a lattice under the sky through which you could make out little triangles of a faint purple sky. But, while Isolde was looking around, the sky rapidly began getting darker and transformed from a pale mauve to a deep black, so thick and opaque that she could hardly see the trees anymore. The clouds rolled across the sky rapidly, perhaps a little too rapidly and too close to the ground to be natural. Were those clouds, actually? She smelled the air. There was no doubting it—it was smoke.

A Queen's Ascension - War:Part Eleven
Sankara knew she was beaten the moment Tomos and Vyssa had arrived with their armies. The Sakhmetian army, with all its might, was not prepared to battle international armies with backups ready to reengage even if they did defeat this first wave.
