Recap: PHB’s 25M & Summer Kickoff 2016 Party!

phb party summer16

Hey Poptropicans… IT’S SUMMER*! (*Or winter, for those of you in the southern half of the world!)

Earlier this week, the PHB kicked off the summer* solstice (and simultaneously, celebrated our recent milestone of 25 million site views) with a Poptropica party that we invited everyone to check out. As you can tell from the collage above, it was a fire-cracking blast! 🌴🎉

The party took place on the PHC (Poptropica Help Chat – the PHB’s chat hangout on Discord, the first time we’ve had a PHB party since moving chat servers!) and of course, several Multiverse party rooms on Poptropica! After counting down to the official start of summer*, the festivities began with lots of chatting on our Discord server and Multiverse rooms for everyone to add friends and challenge each other in head-to-head game battles. Of course, we also blasted off lag-inducing special effects like fireworks, shamrocks, and even umbrellas to shade from the summer sun!

Lots of Poptropicans showed up, and it was great to see both regulars and new faces as well! Several PHB authors joined in the fun as well – Mighty Gamer, Brave Tomato, Spotted Dragon, Ylimegirl, and yours truly (Slanted Fish) were there. But the biggest celebrity of the party popped in about two hours into the festivities: Poptropica Creator and social media manager Skinny Moon!

As you can imagine, she was floored with messages, and for the hour that she stayed, the party turned into a Creator Q&A session, Strawberry Moon Party Edition! You can read all about it in this PHB post.

Other highlights of the party include Poptropican doodle requests being taken by Pop fan-artist Ruby (criaha) – can you find some in the recap pic above? – and attempts to push down the tree in the enchanted forest Multiverse, reminiscent of the legendary Club Penguin iceberg tipping. We didn’t get that tree to fall, but we sure got a lot of Poptropicans in on the action!

To get a feel of a typical PHB party, check out TallMelonisCool’s video by clicking here. In it, he records his computer screen while enjoying the party, from chatting on our PHC Discord server to battling Poptropicans in Multiverse rooms! You can skip around the video of course, and although the video is under an hour long, this party went on for several hours, with Poptropicans coming and going!

Anyway, that wraps up this party recap. Thanks to all of you who came to celebrate, and for those who couldn’t: don’t worry, there will be more opportunities in the future! Plus, the PHC is always open for Poptropicans to hang out in, to Poptropica and chill – so pop on by!

🌴 Thanks for 25 million hits here on the PHB! 🎉

HAVE A GREAT SUMMER*!

    I had a great time at the party…except for some terrible wifi problems! Whatever, at least I was there for most of the party.

    LOL, I’m in the upper left corner of the collage and a cake is about to fall on my head XDDD

    The party was AWESOME! 😀 I had an amazing time there, even though I had multiverse problems 😛
    I also spot myself in the upper side squirting wasabi sauce,hehe. Thanks for giving my own little box in the collage 😉

    I love how the only reason I’m in the collage is because of Tree Pushing ;D – JUST PUSH IT! It was a really schweet party, definitely one to remember :3 . Really awesome to be able to get a commissioned sketch of my Poptropican from Criaha, and Skinny Moon’s arrival was really cool as well! Sorry for those that missed it – I do have screenshots of Multiverses(over 22, which I will share a few in this comment) during the party, although I couldn’t exactly get that many screenshots of the chat since there were so many messages coming at the same time – at one point, there were over 6 users typing at once! If I do get screenshots of the party, I’ll reply to this message with the link to a gigantic image – if I don’t, sorry ;-; .

    After the party ended, Yujo became a Faceless Pyro-Zombie! Jumpy Coyote has never been the same again. . . (just kidding, my Poptropican’s totally fine now):

    My first PHC party! Not only that, but I was there for the “pre-party” and a while after the chat room got silent. 😛 Can’t wait for future parties! We will push down that tree! 😉

  6. DJScratchStep says:

    I had to go maybe two hours in due to trying to fix my stupid slow computer 😡 But I’m glad I made it while it lasted!
