The new map looks BEAUTIFUL! They couldn't have done a better job. I thought it would all turn into a full-fledged plot, though.... :wormsurprise:

The new map is gorgeous! I wish we had gotten a full out plot, but the transition was nice.
I didn't get the site theme either. I thought I completed the Sudoku thing on all the release days, but it turns out once was on my brother's account. Sigh... At least I got the avatar.
So far I've gotten a one dubloon coin and a pirate usuki play set from the anchor management daily.

I haven't heard that one, but I have heard an unconfirmed report of someone getting a Pirate PB.

That would be. AWESOME.

I have also heard of the pb, but some one could be lying about both items.

I've actually seen multiple reports of both items -- Pirate PB and Magical Krawk Plushie -- so it's a possibility!

Not to dampen the mood, but the possibility of that happening is probably as small as it would be to get that neat cape from the Lunar Temple.

Small possibility, maybe -- but still a possibility! Don't be a Negative Nancy :P

I'm not being negative, merely rational! (I'm just a bit impatient that I don't know exactly when my NT story will be held over, so please forgive me.)

It seems that it was merely an event and not a plot, just as the Neopian Times said, although I am of the train of thought that this could still lead to a planned plot in the near future, and I still think that Gavril was behind it.

The renovation doesn't impress me that much. I'm not saying that I dislike it, but it's nowhere near as grand as Faerieland's makeover, and overall the change isn't something that strikes me. I was hoping for a more dramatic change, which was why from the beginning I assumed, all too confidently, that the island would remain as several islets.

The rewards for the event don't satiate me much, save for the money, which is always welcome. I'm not an avatar collector, especially not of plot avatars, since to me plot avatars are merely a means of displaying your age on the forums. However, I do like the site theme, since I do collect those. I'm debating as to whether I like this one or the Altador Cup theme better, although I think that ultimately I will make the AC theme my regular, since it seems much more wholesome.

Asides from the new site theme, I also really like the new daily, since the items are pretty good. They should also make the price of dubloons go way down, making it much more affordable for me to train my combat Neopet.

Sincerely,
Monosmith

Oh, it's beautiful! Reminds me of Port Royal in POTC - or whatever the port was with the rowdy pirates.

(& is the plot over? How do I keep missing these plots?! I missed a theme? AARRRG.)

The island's gorgeous. I was in the camp that didn't believe KI needed a redraw, but now it's done, I'm struck by how big an improvement this is. It's detailed, atmospheric and really gives the island a sense of place. I am a little disappointed that the new map doesn't quite seem to be working properly; many things seem to require two clicks or more to open, for no good reason.

Moving some of the activities and games to a separate section (Warf Wharf) really makes a lot of sense-- having crowded maps is becoming more and more of a problem as Neopia fills up. On the other hand, I bewilderedly question the wisdom of including Krawk Fashions in the redrawn map. That page has been out of date for more than four years, and you'd think a redraw would be the perfect time to give it a graceful retirement.

Yeah, it's over. The site theme was only for participating daily. I didn't get it. :/ Technically, it was an event. Not quite enough content to be a plot.
