Hey guys! My name is G-Hopper, and I have finally decided to write an MPIP! I hope you enjoy it! If you want to add me on Poptropica, my username is Wheze4. Shall we proceed?
|2011–2012| A Small Beginning
It all started off when I was a little four- or five-year-old, watching my sister play Poptropica. I loved the game, and was impressed with what she could accomplish! I decided to try out this game myself, not really completing any islands, due to me being so young. (I also may or may not have forgotten every account’s username and password.)
However, I continued to enjoy the game, even without achieving anything whatsoever. Also, my younger individual was completely attracted to computers back then – they were the building blocks of me today. I used to play Club Penguin constantly until I found Poptropica, and then I’d play a little of the two.
But as the year went on, Poptropica disappeared from my mind, since it grew a bit dull to me as I grew up.
|2013–2014| Small Sparks
In the following years, I remembered the game a bit. Still, I didn’t play it as much since I still could not recall usernames and passwords. Plus, the difficulty of the game just got higher.
To be honest, 2014 is a year I can’t even remember. The fame completely went to Club Penguin at that time. Also, around this time, SUIs (sound-updated islands) were being introduced, and I got seriously confused when I saw color on the original, iconic Poptropica map. All thought of the virtual world went to sleep, until…
|2015| Up and Playing Again! (And the PHB!)
2015 was the year of revival for my Poptropica activity, as I was seriously losing interest in Club Penguin due to Disney’s actions to the game.
By this time I could beat so many islands on Poptropica, thanks to the PHB’s great walkthroughs. I didn’t even know about all the other things the PHB had until some months later!
Also, Escape From Pelican Rock Island was introduced at the end of the year, which really piqued my interest as a player. However, I couldn’t play the new island until 2016, since they released in later for non-members.
|2016| Entering the Community
In mid-2016, as the PHB prepared to host the Poppies 2016, their annual Poptropica community awards, I decided to make a great leap to get more involved in the wider community surrounding Poptropica, starting with creating a Discord account. I received pretty warm welcomes, and I was guided by one of my first PHC friends, Orange Shell.
From there, I managed to get a meme face scheduled, make a deviantArt account, and start my blogging experience by creating the Brainy Pop Blog, which I run along with a few others. This was the greatest year for my Poptropican.
I evolved through blogging and attended tons of PHB events. It was a whole new start for me, and it felt like it was never going to end.
|2017| The Whole New World and Beyond
The beginning of 2017 wasn’t all that eventful, but anxiety for the upcoming Poptropica Worlds continued building up. I passed the time by getting involved with the Pokemon fandom and another game called ROBLOX.
Then finally, in May, Poptropica Worlds was introduced! It caused a large revival in the activity of my blog, and Poptropica news was popping up everywhere. I’m so thrilled for what’s to come in this community!
And that’s My Place in Poptropica.
