Noa more Boa.

Hi guys,

As the title probably gave away, this is my resignation post from the PHB. I’ve had an awesome time posting for you guys, but all good things must come to an end.

Nomming, poetry, tricks, poetry, Party With Hobos and casual blogging awesomeness has to eventually make way for transitions between schools, work (yes, I got a job!) and focusing on my future. I have to thank you all for supporting me, seriously, you’ve laughed at my jokes, congratulated me and made me feel so welcome. And goodbye to you all, commenters and authors, especially Slanted Fish, RD, Shaggy Tornado and MT.

It’s been a pleasure updating your computer screens, I hope I can keep in touch via comments every once in a while. ;)

Cya,

Green Boa

Somebody PLEASE say Mystery Train!

Eh? Eh? No? Drat. :|

As you can probably guess, this is a post about some more of the creators’ favourite island. And as you can tell I desperately wanted someone to say Mystery Train. It is WAY my favourite island. Alas, it has not happened. Let’s just show you.

[Read more...]

A look behind the scenes.

The creators have released a few pictures of the ‘behind the scenes’ work behind the release of Wimpy Boardwalk. Such as this one, where Jeff Kinney, Poptropica creator and Diary of a Wimpy Kid author, gives some advice to some of the Poptropica designers.

From this picture, we can tell two things. (Well, I can anyway. You may be able to find more.)

  1. It takes a LOT of designers to make a Wimpy Kid island.
  2. The designers are able to decorate their station with toys, posters, and other cool stuff!

So when you play a new island, just spare a thought for the people who have worked hard to make Poptropica the best it can be! :D

There is probably a great deal of relief and satisfaction (and maybe a little partying) when a new island is released. Look at these lovely, big smiles!

Say cheese!

Gorgeous.

Members can play Wimpy Boardwalk now. On the 18th of July it will be released to non-members. Remember, if you get stuck, you can always refer to our Wimpy Boardwalk guide! (Credit going to Shaggy Tornado, Super Thunder, Clean Shark, MT, and Slanted Fish!)

Cya guys!

*steps into alternate demension*

Ka-BOOM!

*official-looking person lights fuse on abnormally huge firework*

Official looking person: Stand back everybody! This firework isn’t called ‘The KA-BOOM-BANG-BANG-BANG-POP-WHISTLE-FIZZ-WHOOP-RATATATAT-DONG-A-BONG-SHAKKA-LAKKA-WOOT for nothing! It says on the label, may through out strange projectiles and possibly tear apart the fabric of the universe.

(everybody stands well back)

(Firework eplodes, and GB is one of the ‘strange projectiles’ thrown out.)

GB: Hi! New creators post! Looky!

Sis boom bah!

 

Independence Day is next week, and you know what that means: fireworks! If you’re itching to get started on the skyrockets a little early, check out the Fireworks in the Poptropica Store. You can plant these festive rockets anywhere on Poptropica, and watch them explode across the sky!

Fireworks are fun, and I hope everyone in america (not me) or anyone who celebrates Independance day/4th of July (still not me) has a great day. To everyone else, have a great Wednesday!!
 
 
Are you going to release the power of the fireworks this Wednesday? Or have you got another party item in mind?
 
 Tell us in the comments!
 
 
GB.
 
Late edit! Well guys, I have a reason to use the fireworks! Guess what it is!!
 
IT’S MY 50th POST!!!
 
Hooray!!!
 
*Lights firework display to rival that of New Year’s Eve on Planet Pyrotechnics*
 
(And for those who don’t know, pyrotechnics is fancy for fireworks and gunpowder and explosions and stuff like that.)
 
GB grabs onto a firework, and flys into the air with it.
 
Cya! :D

Whose side are you on?

Hey peeps.

Now that Poptropolis games has come out you may notice something new on the friends profile pages.

Random person: *puts hand up*

GB: Yes?

Random Person: Non-members with the Poptropolis medallion!

GB: *imitates buzzer* EEEEH! Wrong!

Other Random Person: Poptropolis island photos?

GB: *buzzer noise* EEEEH! Wrong again!

Another Random Person: Well what is it then?

GB: I’ll let Captain Crawfish’s Poptropica Friends profile show you.

The Flying Squid? I thought that he would fit into the Black Flags like a glove?

Yes, now everyone can see what tribe you’re on! Or which one you want to be on! I like Poptropolis games. In my opinion it’s the best one we’ve had since Mystery Train. Call me a harsh critic but Ghost Story, SOS, Vampire’s Curse and Twisted Thicket aren’t really very good islands. But I give Poptropolis games an 8/10 as an enjoyable and colourful island. Feel free to disagree with me, though. :|

‘Wheel’ now know about the next book.

Hey guys. :) (update: see below for “Photastic” post!)

The Creators have posted the cover of the next Wimpy Kid book. Here it is…

The third wheel? I didn’t even know that we had two to start with!

From what I’ve heard from the news (Jeff Kinney was at a childrens books writers’ expo in Sydney, NSW, Australia) it’s basically about Greg trying to find a date to the valentines day dance. My guess is, he’ll say that he’s got a great chance of going with Holly Hills or something, but he’ll end up just going with his best friend, Rowley.

GB.

*flies away into clouds*

EDIT (Hijuyo):

We’ve recently heard from a PHB reader, Lucas, that his Poptropican jaramillo14 (Lone Heart) is the one featured in the PCB’s “Photastic” post. Congratulations, Lone Heart, for earning all 109 photos currently available in Poptropica’s photo album! Hard work does pay off. :)

How many photos have YOU earned on Poptropica Friends? Do you have more or less than your friends? Let us know in the comments below!

We won wimpy gold!

Hey poptropica peeps. New posts to report. Lets get started!

BINARY BARD

The binary code at the end of the post translates to ‘go for the gold’. Which is reasonable, seeing as how if you don’t win you tribe will go through ULTIMATE SHAME AND DISHONOR. Or words to that effect. ;)

Guess who?

 

This is a tough one!

CAPTAIN CRAWFISH

Oh, gee. I have no idea! Who could this mystery person possibly be? Santa Claus? Buzz Lightyear? Dracula?
 
Hmmmmmmm.
 
Wait a minute, that body shape, those three hairs, that nose!
 
It’s… it’s…
 
 
 
 
 
 
Barack Obama!
 
 
Lol jks, it’s Greg Heffley. From the Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Written by Jeff Kinney. The creator of poptropica. Diary of a Wimpy Kid? You know, the bestselling series that was likely to be named the most popular childrens series since Harry Potter and then sold about half a million more copies of books than Harry Potter?
 
You may have heard of it.
 
 
GB out. Cya!
 

It has almost arrived…

GBTommorow Poptropilis Games will become available to members. And members, may I ask you, what tribe will you choose? To pursue this question further I hand over to Captain Crawfish.

*takes out a can of coke*

One more day to decide…

 
What tribe will you represent in the Poptropolis Games?

Poptropolis Games rises tomorrow! Poptropica Members will have Early Access to the entire Island. Non-Members will be able to play a limited demo.

Don’t miss out — find out how to become a Member today!

Choosing your tribe
By Green Boa
 
Choosing your tribe is no small task,
Make your descion, at your own rask
 (risk :P )
 
Will you be Wildfire, burning alight?
45%, believe this is right.
 (From the poll on the PCB :lol: )
 
Will you be Nightcrawlers, who are often baited?
I must warn you, my friends, they aren’t highly rated. (Only 7%!)
 
Will you join Pathfinders, and follow their map?
Or will your navigations lead you into a trap?
 
Will you choose Nanobots, with tech to astound?
No other robots, are there around.
(I mean, they were underwater!)
 
Or perhaps, you will go, with Flying Squid!
Their chances of winning are worth a fair bid.
(More than an inkling, remember?)
 
Or Yellowjackets, like wasps they are fierce.
Their balloon of bad luck, they are looking to pierce.
(Which will make it go POP and it will fly into tiny pieces!)
 
Or Seraphim, perhaps, they’re up to the test.
According to us, they are second best.
(16% on the PCB poll!)
 
Or maybe, finally, last but not least,
Black Flags, is the tribe, with which you will feast.
(On victory, perhaps?)
 
 
That’s all from me. Bye!
