The customisation and games for Neopets always uses flashplayer and my closet never works to be able to update my pets clothing. But flashplayer is kinda outdated technology. Do you think Neopets will ever upgrade to something better? ~ silly_mistake
That's the plan! Eventually, it'll all be HTML5, but balancing resources between regular site content, developing events both new and recurring, and fixing issues that pop up is tough, so it's a slow process. Hang tight - some day flash on Neopets will be a thing of the past!

Hello TNT! In regards to last weeks question, you said that being able to change your username/pet name is not on the horizon "right now" so does that mean it miiiight happen in the future? Thanks! :) ~ smeehoo27126043
So this is a hard one to answer, I won't say it definitely will not ever happen, because like I said it's something we know y'all want and we'd want to give you, but at the same time, the level of work involved in completely overhauling the back end of our site to make it possible is enormous. I know that's not much better than what I told you last week, but it's the best I got ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Hey, I was wondering if PetPets are ever gonna actually have responses other than the automated one? It's kinda boring talking to them... Have a cookie, by the way! (Don't scoff them all!) Please remove my username. ~ username removed
We don't have any plans for that right now, but the meepits have mentioned it more than once. They're starting to look more organized too... Oh Fyora, I'm getting out of here...

Frisbee tosses giant holiday cookie! Let's say an event is coming to the battledome, will Neopians be given advanced warning to train their pets? ~ johnnysslorg
Consider this your advance warning :) I don't have a timeline yet, as we had to focus on the recurring site events that go on this time of year! But nonetheless, as y'all know, something may or may not be in the works...

I heard that if your pet wins the Holiday Dream Neopet Giveaway, then the color change is permanent and can't ever be changed afterwards. Is this true, or just a rumor? ~ peirigill
Definitely a rumor! Although if it's your dream neopet, we don't know why you'd paint it, but it can be painted again if you so choose.

*Happy Thoughts*

The Ardors and Agonies of Witchcraft: Part Ten
The wall ahead of her rippled. Colly watched with horror as the mud melted and sloughed off the wall the make way for Sarabet, who didn’t even wait for the doorway to be solidified again to welcome herself inside. Mud plopped onto her head and ran down her body, but she treated it with indifference.

Of Silence: a Home for the Holidays: Part One
It’s fast approaching two in the morning when the candles above Kanrik’s work desk begin to dance in what would seem to be the ghost of an unnatural breeze; and that, as always, can only mean one thing: The thief’s got a visitor.
