Welcome to Hot Potato

Hot Potato was created on February 16th, 2015 after a brief epiphany and very little discussion between Deegoes and Sunny. After multiple names had been tossed down the chute, Hot Potato came to be after discussing the idea of bouncing codes between the two of us. This allows bits from both of us to go into each premade petpage design. Unfortunately in March 2015 Sunny made the hard decision of leaving Neopets but Deegoes continues to produce layouts and keep Hot Potato afloat!

Our main goal here at Hot Potato is to supply the general public with high quality premade designs catered to Character's and their development. This includes but is not limited to designs for UFA/UFT pages, applications, character stories, art pages, and NC/NP wishlists.

If we currently do not have a design you're seeking, don't fear! Hot Potato offers custom 'Free Use' designs. To learn more about requesting or what is included in a 'Free Use' design, please visit our Requesting a Free Use section.

General Rules and Terms of Use

Have a question about our general rules or premades? Visit our Frequently Asked Questions!

Premade Petpages

These layouts are hot, baked, and ready for you to enjoy, just like a hot, buttery potato! Feel free to add your own toppings (resources) to your potato to make it yours, but do not forget to compliment the chef by leaving credit where credit is due!

Suggestions

Have a suggestion for a layout that hasn't been made yet? Seeking a specific design to go with your insert pet related activty here? Then check out our Requesting a Free Use section and submit your suggestions today.

Requesting a Free Use

So, none of our current premades meet your exquisite taste? At Hot Potato we offer personalized petpage layouts! However these 'personalized layouts' are what we call Free Use layouts. If you request a Free Use petpage, your design will be duplicated for use in our Premades section. This means that anyone has the ability to use the code that was created for you. * Please remember that requesting a free-use premade will require some creativity on your part!

1. Read the RULES. They're simple and there are only three. Make sure you read them completely.

2. Have an idea of what kind of design you want. Think of colors. And use your space wisely!

Optional: Draw out your design to the best of your ability using a photo manipulation program, MS Paint, or even an old fashioned pen and paper.

3. Submit your ideas to either Deegoes or Sunny.

Q: Can I edit your layouts?

A. Yes! We encourage people to decorate their potato as they please. Just remember to KEEP THE CREDITS!

Q: Can you teach me how to code?

A. Unfortunately we do not have the time to give indepth one-on-one lessons. There are plenty of resources on the web to teach you how to code.

Q: I don't understand how to edit ___, can you please help?

A. Yes! We know that sometimes it can be difficult to edit a premade layout if you aren't familiar with the language. Our Neo-inboxes are ALWAYS open if you have a question about editing one of our designs.

Q: Will you make me a custom banner, graphic, etc?

A. Generally, no. We offer custom designs but will not include any banners, graphics, etc.

Q: Will you ever close your requests?

A. Our layout requests are open indefinitely. Hot Potato will take any and all requests for layout designs. Please keep in mind that if we have a large work load, some layout ideas may be put on backlog. If this happens to your layout idea, it will be posted on the page and you will receive a message immediately following your request to let you know an estimated time of competition.

Rules

Q: Can I remove any credit/sitely links that I find unneccessary?

A. No. The credit/sitely section is there because sometimes we use other user's materials! We would hate to see someone not get credit for their hard work. Please feel free to move or reformat but do not remove entirely.

Q: Can I change the credit/sitely links to be images?

A. Yes. You can reformat or move any credit/sitely links, just be sure not to remove them!

Premades

Q: Why do you advertise that you do customs but you won't make custom banners, graphics, etc?

A. We will happily make a design that is custom(ized) to your needs. Please keep in mind these designs will be released to the public and use will not be exclusive to you. While we advertise custom designs, we do not advertise or otherwise offer custom banners, graphics, etc.

Q: What does the 'Designed Use' mean?

A. Each layout was made with a specific idea in mind. The Designed Use simply lets you know what we had in mind while making the design! Please remember that you can take and use the layout for any use you may need!

Q: Can I change the colors in the layouts?

A. Of course! You're welcome to change anything about our layouts as long as you leave credit.

Ask The Team

Question: What is your favorite potato dish?

Sunny's Answer: Baked potato with butter and shredded cheese. *licks lips*

Deegoes' Answer: Potato Salad with pickles!

Question: Why did you name the site Hot Potato?

Answer: After discussing the fact that we both wanted to be really involved with each and every layout, Sunny made a hilarious joke about naming the site Hot Potato. We fell in love with the idea and it came to be!

Feel free to mail us at any time! Our inboxes are always open for questions, suggestions, critique or concerns. Every Neomail will get a response. Please be patient as a response can sometimes take up to 48 hours!
