P-Con Ep. 3 for all April 16th, Popstorms, & Working on the Wiki!

Hey Poptropicans! First of all, a reminder that PoptropiCon Ep. 3: Reign of Omegon releases to everyone this coming Thursday, April 16th. This final episode had quite some celebration here last week as the subject of our April Fool’s prank. Plus, check out our Behind-the-Scenes post for some sneak peeks, or Sam’s review for an overview!

There hasn’t been a whole lot of other official news besides Mystery of the Map pages, of which you can read the entire collection thus far on our Comics page. And, if you’ve been keeping up on our Twitter timeline (via the sidebar or by following us on Twitter), you may have seen a few new Popstorms, which are posted from Master Mime’s Pinterest.

Anyway, with the current blogging stalemate, the big thing in the Poptropica community right now is the ongoing community project we’ve mentioned here a few times already as being a new-ish partner site of the Poptropica Help Network, the Poptropica Wiki.

PoptropicaWikiLogoAnyone and everyone is welcome to create a Wikia account and get editing – writing up information, inserting pictures, and more. (Protip: If the ads bother you, just get AdBlock for your browser.)

So, how can you help?

We’re looking to create informative pages for each and every character, itemisland (and to a lesser extent, scene – an area of an island). You can find a page simply by using the search bar at the top of the wiki, and if the page does not exist, you can create it!

From there, you can add in information that you think would be relevant and informative (including pictures), or perhaps fix up bad grammar if you spot any. Wiki editing comes with its own markup (notation you can use to produce various effects like bolding or linking to another page) – here’s a quick guide to a few basics that may help.

The Poptropica Wiki currently has 700+ articles, and we invite the community to join us in creating more. Have fun editing, and see you on the wiki! 🙂

    Hey Fishy, I’m just curious as to why isn’t there any space between your name ”Slantedfish” i.e. between slanted and fish? (I know it’s like that from a long time,but I’m just curious. 🙂 )

    • slantedfish says:

      Just personal preference, or you can think of it as stylization – I think it looks better unspaced and uncapped. Plus, it’s my Poptropica username, so that should make me easier to find for anyone who wants to add me. 😀

        Oh. 🙂 And is your native place in China? Or did you just shift to China? Because your english is so good,proper and neat. (Sorry,if it’s off-topic. 😄 🙂 )

        And what exactly are popstorms? I mean I know it’s the creators posting those funny pictures (I guess that’s how it is. o.o 😄 ) But still, is it something important or just for fun? Because there’s too many of them.

        🙂

        I was born and raised in Hong Kong, which is kind-of-not-really part of China. The political term is “one country, two systems”. 😛

        The name “Popstorms” is probably a blend of Poptropica and brainstorms, and they’re just fun illustrations. Right now, they’re just random ideas from the Creators, not particularly for anything, but who knows if they’ll turn it into something in the game one day. 😀

What's popping, Poptropicans?
