The Solitary Shanty is all that is left of Krawk Island after it got attacked by what looked like a giant squid. You can find it by clicking on the small island on the new map of Krawk Island.
|Until recently, this was the spot where Krawk Island could be found. A few days ago, however, a large set of what's being described as claws or tentacles encircled the island, and the small plot you see now and the shanty that rests upon it are all that remain.|

Those who searched for islands every day and who completed the soduku puzzle every day also unlocked a special site theme.
Congratulations! You've been awarded the Krawk Island site theme. To apply your new site theme now click here or visit your preferences to set it yourself.
Here is also a reply from TNT on a messageboard regarding the prizes and site theme:
|First off, if you didn't get prizes, head over to the Governor's mansion to claim them. Still not getting them? Do you see a notice from Gavril above the KI map? If not, submit a ticket please!
The 'Sign-Up' button on the prize page is just a link to the daily. If you already did the daily today, you can do it again tomorrow. You're not missing anything!
We know the stamp won't go in an album. Thanks for reporting it. We'll fix that in the morning.
Now the doozy... we've spent the last couple hours manually double-checking folks and gotten through a couple hundred who have reported an issue with the theme. None of the people we checked met the criteria for that prize. They missed completing a step on the day it was released - either an entire search block (5 in one day) or a retrieval - and didn't qualify. So if you're missing the theme, I'm betting that's why. (I definitely don't think anyone is lying about it! I think a lot of folks are just mistaken about actual days participated, given all the accounts we've checked.) If you still think you are missing prizes, though, please do submit a ticket and Support will look into it!
And we're off. Thanks for your patience, everyone. Have a good night!
What happened to Krawk Island? All of my favourite locations and games are missing!
Krawk Island has mysteriously disappeared, and we really arenít sure what happened to it. One day it was there, and the next day, *poof*! All that was left was a tiny speck. This seems to be a pretty large mystery, and it will take some work to figure out what happened, so stick with it! There are sure to be rewards at the end for the most helpful and dedicated Neopians.
The Training Academy is one of the missing locations, and it is my petís day! Can I still get my free training? I mean, come on, it only comes around once a year!
Unfortunately, it is not known exactly where the Training Academy isÖ so that means we canít offer you free training for your pet! However, we are very, uh, confident that the Training Academy will be *shifty eyes* found. Or retrieved. Or rebuilt. Or something. So fear not! Keep checking back with us, and we are certain that your pet will live to train for free another day.
I am assisting with the search for Krawk Island, but I wasnít able to search all of my available sectors in one day. When I come back, will I still be able to search those sectors?
If you miss a day or cannot complete the search in all of your available sectors, you will still be able to search those sectors on another day. However, we have a feeling that there will come a point at which you will no longer be able to search sectors. So pay attention and come back often. Also, keep in mind that if you complete all of your searches every day, there may be an even more handsome reward awaiting you. That is, if we ever find Krawk Island at all.
How long do I have to use my Mysterious Skeleton Key(s)?
You will always be able to open a Locked Treasure of Mystery Chest as long as you have a Mysterious Skeleton Key and a Locked Treasure of Mystery Chest in your Inventory. However, the Locked Treasure of Mystery Chest can only be acquired during the event, and the keys will only be available for a few days after you receive the last Locked Treasure of Mystery Chest.
What do I get for unlocking a Locked Treasure of Mystery Chest?
For each Locked Treasure of Mystery Chest that is unlocked with a Mysterious Skeleton Key, you will receive an exclusive NC prize. You can only receive each prize once, so if you unlock all of the chests, you will receive all of the items.
Why canít I trade for or purchase a Locked Treasure of Mystery Chest?
The only way to receive a Locked Treasure of Mystery Chest is to earn it by searching for Krawk Island.
Why canít I do anything with my Mysterious Skeleton Key?
In order to use the Mysterious Skeleton Key, you must have a Locked Treasure of Mystery Chest in your Inventory. If you have not earned a Locked Treasure of Mystery Chest or if it is in your Safety Deposit Box, you will not be able to use your Mysterious Skeleton Key.
Why canít I do anything with my Locked Treasure of Mystery Chest?
The Locked Treasure of Mystery Chest will remain locked until you purchase or are gifted a Mysterious Skeleton Key from the NC Mall.
