A Message from TNT
A message from the The Official Neopets Team Message Board

In order to be transparent with our players and fans, we want to inform you of recent reports that have come to our attention regarding an alleged data breach to our Neopets' account database in which a large amount of information from player accounts may have been leaked to third parties. To be clear, this is specific to the Usernames, Passwords, Email Addresses, Birthdates, and Countries tied to player accounts. It does NOT include credit card or payment information.

While we know news like this might be frustrating to our players to learn, we would like to assure all that this breach in security is linked to an incident that occurred in 2012, prior to JumpStart's acquisition of Neopets. In fact, account security has been elevated since Neopets joined the JumpStart family of games. After further investigation and some quick actions by our team, it is becoming clear that a number of the affected accounts are, in fact, inactive and in some cases have already been completely purged from our system.

Although, the impact of this database hack is limited to this single incident, we want all our players to know the facts surrounding these reports and also hope to encourage active players to take the necessary measures toward keeping their accounts secure. On our end, we plan to implement a password reset for all affected players (more info to come).

We appreciate your understanding and patience at this time and invite you to reach out to us through our normal support channels with any questions or concerns you might have regarding this incident or the security of your account. As a quick reminder to avoid facing any further account access related issues in the future, we recommend that you to never share account information to any parties beside TNT and that you keep your account information up to date, resetting your password regularly. Thank you.

NC Mall Glitch

Don't panic!
 
There's a glitch meaning NC Mall access is restricted for some users.

It will show a different user name and a message such as the one below, but this is only on NC pages and your account is not signed out. It does mean that some users are unable to access NC Mall and the Qasalan Expellibox daily.

Whaaaa! We are missing one or more of the following:gender
Please go here to update it and get rid of this message. Thanks and sorry for the inconvienience!

Broken Images Update
We've updated two of our Userlookups to work once again due to requests we've received.  We hope you enjoy using these two once again.  Also, the Plushie one was not working in Chrome before the broken image issue (it was pushed down and left) - we were able to fix that without breaking it in other browsers.  So, hurray!  It now works in Chrome!  We're hoping to go through many more layouts this weekend so stay tuned.

Kadoaties!  Plushie
Kadoaties!                                                                         Plushie
 
So we are going to continue going down the list of Userlookups and fixing them.  If there is a specific Lookup you'd like to see fixed right away so you can use it now, please Contact Me (if that mailbox fills, please try here).

Most petpages should be working properly as they've been effected for years, but feel free to use one of the two above contacts to alert us of any that aren't or are broken in any other way.  Once we finish Userlookups we will be going through Shops.  Again though, if you are using a Shop layout, feel free to use the two contacts above to request a layout be fixed at the front of the line (otherwise going alphabetical).



Wait, what's going on with SunnyNeo graphics??

Posted by jujipup on 16th of April 2016 at 01:10 PM NST:

Many have noticed that SunnyNeo and other fansite graphics are suddenly breaking on Userlookups and Shops.  This actually started years ago on Petpages.  Marleen was actually talking to TNT in the past on getting it fixed but unfortunately it never was.  It appears that the issue has now moved to userlookups and shops.

Why are some images working like backgrounds and others breaking?
Any image that is apart of an image code Neo's system sees the fansite URL and is adding a "redirect" measure to it which of course breaks the image.  So anything that has this kind of code breaks:

<img src="http://sunnyneo.com/adoptable/hd_blueabigailadoptable.png">

What we've done to work around this on petpages is to put all images into a style sheet or as a style on a div so like either of the following:

<style>
#adopty {
background:url("http://sunnyneo.com/adoptable/hd_blueabigailadoptable.png");
width:97;
height:133;
display:block;
</style>

<div id="adopty"></div>

<div style="background:url('http://sunnyneo.com/adoptable/hd_blueabigailadoptable.png');
width:97px;height:133px;display:block;"></div>

So if you know how to code, you can feel free to do this fix to get them to work.  We are working on recoding our graphics to make them work once again.
