This is the My Place in Poptropica story of TeenArachnid, aka Happy Panda, who enjoys participating within the PHB community. See the bottom of this post for details on sending in your own MPIP!
Hello Poptropicans! It is I, Teen Arachnid (previously known as Happy Panda)! This is my MPIP post. My name is Teen Arachnid, but my PHB account is teenarachnidpoptropica. Anyway, I love Poptropica, Flipline, Marvel, DC Comics, and Lego. Oh yeah, and I love the PHB! Also, I am not the actual Teen Arachnid from PoptropiCon Island. Well, here we go:
2009-2010 | The Discovery
For me, it started when I was in my gifted class during kindergarten. Some fifth graders introduced me to the Duck Song, Duck Life, and… POPTROPICA! Now really quickly, I want to thank them for showing it to me, or I wouldn’t be on Poptropica today. Now where was I, oh yes! I created a weird account, with a weird username I can’t remember. But for a 6 year old, I kicked butt while playing Poptropica!
2011-2012 | The Crappy Computer
Since I couldn’t remember my username, I created a new account. I was still in love with Poptropica at this age, but sadly, I could hardly play it at that time. My parents had a very old computer, and if I was on Poptropica for 10 minutes, the computer would freeze up and stop working for an hour. I could only play it for about 30 minutes a week, which is very little time for me. So in that time, I played games that didn’t make my computer crash: games from Flipline Studios. I highly recommend that gaming site to you.
2013-2014 | New Computer, New Accounts, and the Best Discovery
Fortunately, my parents eventually fixed the computer so I could play Poptropica longer than I could previously. I created four accounts, but right now I can only remember the usernames and passwords for two of them. But anyway, during this time, I was able to complete many islands.
One day, I was stuck on Time Tangled Island. So I got online, and after a quick search, I found what I considered one of my best discoveries: the Poptropica Help Blog! I created a WordPress account (to comment on blogs like the PHB) called Jugger Kid, and if you look in the PHB archives from 2013-14, you may find some comments from me!
2015 | PHB Fanboy
I began to love the PHB so much that I would find myself on the PHB about ten times a day. For a while I commented under the name Blazeberry Comma, but after a while I decided I didn’t like it so much. So I renamed myself Happy Panda, my Poptropican’s name.
During the PHB’s first ever Poppies event, I got a couple mentions on the Poppies broadcast. Also, I was that one guy who put whoopee cushions all of the Multiverse Room during the Poptropica party! I also got one of my stories in the PHB’s Popcorn magazine (issue #25, if you’d like to see it), which was a huge honor for me. Finally, I contributed a picture to the PHB’s Escape From Pelican Rock Guide (the one with the bar that told you where the cop was while you were in your cell).
2016 – beyond | So Far This Year, and Future Dreams
So far this year, I got my Poptropican in a PMFM post (Round 9, to be exact)!
So yeah. Also, if you want to add me, my current account name is >jagger< . If you want to add my previous accounts, they are: toto11623, paul11623, canhe99, and toycan. Right now, I comment on the PHB under a couple of names: Teen Arachnid (for home) and Happy Panda (for other places).
