Heyyo Poptropicans, it’s Ultimate iPad Expert here! Yesterday the PHB brought some saddening news (yesterday for me, at least – time zones are confusing). Slanted Fish is taking a break from the blog, but there’s good news as well, and that’s what this announcement post is all about!
HPuterpop, Giant Hawk, and I (UiPE) have been placed in charge, and we’re ready for something new. Everyone knows how YouTube is this amazing platform for all sorts of people to create all sorts of video content. Well, we believe that video is the future of entertainment and news. Blogging is so old school. We’re moving on to better things…
And so, we’d like to proudly announce the Poptropica Help Vlogs!
The PHV is a YouTube channel dedicated to videos about Poptropica, with a focus on helping out players. Essentially, we’re shifting from the PHB to the PHV. From here on out, we’re not delivering the latest Poptropica news by blog post anymore. We’ll be vlogging (video blogging) instead!
Consequently, we’ll be closing down the PHB. Once we get into the swing of vlogging, there will be no need for this place we know as the PHB anymore. We know some of you may be saddened by this, so we’re giving you a week to enjoy the blog before everything is completely gone. Goodbyes are difficult, but this is what’s best for the future of Poptropica news. We must take advantage of the superior medium of our time, and that’s why Poptropica Help Blog will soon be Poptropica Help Vlogs.
To kick things off, we’ve uploaded a pilot vlog (which is really several things rolled into one) on our channel (which has been in use by the PHB before, though the vlogging is a first). Hopefully, this introduction welcomes you to the future of the PHV by showing the kinds of content we’re excited to produce for you guys. You can check it out right here (and on our channel as well):
We’re using our prior Poptropica Help Videos channel for the new PHV in order to keep our precious subs. Check it out here! So cool, right? Be sure to like, rate, and of course, subscriiiiibe!

Um…I don’t know how to respond to this. WAIT- DON’T CLOSE DOWN THE PHB!!!
It’s only the best thing for us at the PHN.
SAY WHAT? My favorite authors vlogging together? SOUNDS AMAZING!!1
The blog’s title picture, however, IS amazing. Getting ” the squad” vibes here. 😛
Yus! So gr8 seeing the Pop Squad.
Ikr! 😀 PHV is the best idea since the PHB (which is the best idea since sliced bread).
OMG THAT WAS SO FUNNY
Hehe, thanks! 😀
(My hard work has not gone to waste)
I bet Cobalt loves his circles.
I thought a villain would take over. I watched that video.
I doubt any villains could take us over. 😛 And awesome! 😀
*after watching video*
Hehe. Thank you so much! 😛
(My hours of editing work have not gone to waste)
Woah, shutting the PHB down, oh no! Heh heh, that video was hilarious!
Eh, that’s just what’s best for us, it’s time to move on to the newest and best medium possible.
Thank you! XD
Poor little dinosaur doesn’t want his voice to be heard. xD
What about PMFM????
Still will be going as planned http://poptropicahelp.net/2016/04/02/april-fools-phv/
Hearing the authors’ voices, you know, watching these videos!
I heard all you guys’ voices in that video, well, except Slipiraptor’s.
And yeh, he’s not comfortable with sharing his voice.
Yeh, pretty cool. 😛
It’s cool. Yeah, it’s sorta weird to hear your guys’ voices, but also really awesome! Especially when i nearly spewed Soda over my keyboard when i heard Spencer’s. Thought i knew him for all of 2 seconds.
Let’s all be glad i didn’t have soda at the time.
Just saying, I like reading this stuff a lot better than listening to someone say it in a video because reading is a lot faster than trying to hear someone say it and there are already a lot of other people who make poptropica videos, so congratulations on changing to videos but I’d just rather try to find some other written guide or watch someone else’s videos. Sorry, just stating my opinion, bye.
I can understand that. But, stay tuned here on the latest update.
The part when Cobalt pokes that paper hard multiple times with the pen is so funny!
So great. 😛
You are not a counter, YOU ARE NOT A COUNTER!!! XDDD
XD XD XD XD XD XD XD XD XD XD
Such a great moment.
Death to paper, DEATH TO PAPER!!
Nah, his was better.
Im sorry but keep the blog remove the vlog im against this sorry
We don’t have plans to remove the vlog. But I appreciate your opinion.
im sad now 😦
Don’t be. Tune in within the next few days for more details.
well if you say so Paul 😦
Best vid I’ve watched. Ever. 😛
XD Thank you MG!
Hehe, np. 😛
I like the vlogs though XD
Thank you! I spent too much time on editing them. 😛
The time has come.
I’m kinda mad right now- the Poptropica Creators never did an April Fools Day prank on their blog.
Ikr. Unless their prank is that there is not prank.
Kinda like I did at school, I got on one of the calculators and saved a notes page as “my April fools joke” and all it said was nothing.
Mine was i kept you all in supsence on my channel and then did nothing!!
OK fine, i was busy that night. i didn’t even have anything planned, thought of something the next day. Typical.
Yeah, April Fools Day isn’t April Fools Day without Poptropica doing SOMETHING.
Okayyyy, I thought Fishy leaving was a prank. I’m so sad its true ;7; ! Good luck on the new PHV! The video was great!
Thanks for the good wishes! 😀
And thanks, I enjoyed making the video, but it took a lot of time. 😛
Well, it was really nice while it lasted. I agree, though: I don’t see that many blogs anymore (and most of the ones I find are inactive). Oh well, I spend lots of time on YouTube anyway. Good luck with the PHV.
Glad to have the support! 😀 And thank you!
Pls tell me April Fools. Also, fishy was my fave:(. Bye on April 9th I wanna support ya, but mom won’t let me comment,like,dislike, or subscribe to vids. IM LEAVING
I’m not gonna say specifically if this has anything to do with April Fools, but you’ll have to find out within the next few days.
And, it’s fine if you can’t do that stuff, but I appreciate that you’d like it.
Aw…PHB will be closed(makes me sad).The PHV sounds good,though!
The video was awesome,and those funny moments.I appreciate your hard work you’ve done on making and editing the video,Paul.LOVE IT!:D
Thanks! 😀 I really enjoyed doing it and I’m glad a lot of people seem to enjoy it.
Pleaseee don’t shut down the PHB! I literally cannot access youtube because the computer has some probs and my phone can never play youtube vids anymore!!! How do I update myself on poptropica thru here now? Yeah a vlog is fine but at least keep the blog for people who cannot use or access youtube!!!
I mean, you do have a point there…
Are you kidding? The PHB was the best Poptropica blog ever, and you’re changing it? xD Anyways, funny video.
The PHB is and forever will be, but change is here.
Ok this has APRIL FOOLS written ALL over it
Idk, it doesn’t say April Fools anywhere on the video or this post.
Same with the omegon thing
I hope you are not fooling me, unlike the club penguin joke. I mean, you had posts and everything.How could you not fool someone?
That was a fun prank. 😛 But nah, why would we even fool you again?
Because it is April Fools…
Ok, ther are two things that spells prank. One, “blogging is old school” and two, you said ” not specifically” and not “We are dead serious it’s not a prank.”
Oh, and the reason it doesn’t say April fools is prob to..you know. Fool us?
Oh, um, uh, I don’t really know how to say… er… vlogging is great and all, seriously, but, closing down the PHB!? Why!? I loved the video :D. But, I don’t want the PHB to close! This seems so serious… but it is April first!!! I… er… aw man, I can’t come to a decision and my feet are tingling. Oh dear gosh it is 2009 all over again…
It’s just the next step for the PHB.
Glad you enjoyed the video. 😛
I totally agree, marshmellow.
Plus, no one said it WASN’T a prank.
Yeah, the date is suspicious.☺
You are TOTALLY right Quick Wing. Nobody makes big decisions on April first!!! Wait… my friend was out of school today because she had to go to a wedding TODAY. What is going on!? 😦
At least, if its not a prank, keep the blog. Ya dont have to update it, just keep it so we can reread old posts.
It’s not a prank. 😉
Hold it hold it hold it. Winking!? You know something…
And you just liked my comment! What do you know!?!?! Tell me now! 😡 LOL
Well… it may or may not be a prank, even though today is April Fool’s day.
Wait really…WAIT HOLD ON WHY ARE YOU WINKING
And how do ya know?
(He always winks when he’s posting happy comments.)
Oh. Oops… heh heh… my bad!
Oh I see
I’m stil, suspicious.Im not getting fooled
See see no one is saying FOR SURE! If it was not a prank, they wouldn’t say May or may not
Ha ha ha, that video was hilarious!
Yeah,there is a pattern spelling prank. No one has said FOR SURE IT IS ABSOLUTELY NO PRANK!!!!
WAIT HOLD IT
Is the prank that this is not a prank? Now I’m getting suspiciously paranoid
Quick Wing I am so paranoid it is just… Argh! I need an answer!!! JUST TELL ME THE ANSWER!!! LOL this might be why I am so good at algebra 😀
I still think this is a joke
And if its not a prank yall could of 1. Said so saying IT IS NOT A PRANK.WE ARE SERIOUS. IT IS NOT NOT NOT APRIL FOOLS. Or 2. Done it tomorrow:)
Lol. Wait… why haven’t I gone to sleep yet?… What the heck, I have been checking on the comments for half an hour! Dude I have got to stop being so paranoid 😦
And, BTW, even though I am not totally thrilled with the idea of the PHB going away, this video was amazing (Amazing… AMAZING!!! LOL) and I hope you guys make more!
Thank you. 😛
I am so happy for this change! Can’t wait to see more of all this good stuff in the future, but I’ll be sad to see the PHB go in a week.
Seeing this makes me want to be an author even more. WAIT. NOBODY HEARD THIS… (starts whistling)
This is very relatable.
NOBODY HEARD THAT.
*WHEELS GOING BACKWARDS*
omg,I can’t believe you guys r closing down the phb.I kinda sad about the close down but the phv sounds great.I checked out all the videos. They look AWESOME!!!!!!👍👍👍👍👍
Thank you, glad you enjoyed em.
Rip PHB 2008-2016
But the PHV tho gg
Good game, indeed.
Im not mad or anything, but im just saying like, the phb did not really need to change.
We’re all embracing change here at the PHB. Things constantly change, and so is this blog. Now, why would we fool you like this?
now i hate this place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
No need to h8, m8. The PHV’s still gr8.
Why the hate? PHV seems interesting 😀
(Shh, bro it’s a prank c;)
What about like GHA? And the halloween special? And….. avatar studio gift? I only have one week left of this place 😭
I’m sure it’s a prank but still the video was great! XD
Idk or I don’t want to think that way…Why would they trick or fool us like this?!
(But still,if it’s really something like that then it’s too much!)I don’t expect that,though.
This HAS to be a prank. I mean, Fishy would never just up and leave like that, and it must have occurred to them that not everyone who reads this blog is allowed on youtube! (*coughcough* me *coughcough*) (Also, first time commenting here! Yay! If it’s true, though, it might be the last … ;_;
Why don’t you guys just keep the blog, and do a vlog every few weeks or so?
I second that!
Yes that would be perfect!
I Third and Forth and Fifth and Sixth that.
What about the ASG, Popcorn Magazines, PMFM, etc? Will you guys just get rid of all of that?
Wait a second! This is an April Fools Day joke!
Also, no offense to the authors, but I hated that first Vlog post. I would prefer any PHB post over that one PHV video.
nOICE! PHB SQUAD
ALL HAIL OMEGON!
Seriously, Moody tuna? Wrong year, dude/dudette.
*1 day later*
OOOOOOOOOOOO- *cough cough* *in hoarse voice* Okay, that was a little much, but WHY, PHB!?!?!?!
I DONT LIKE THIS VLOGGING THING. OMEGON CAN NOW BE RULER! FISHY IS NOW GONE SO NO RULER YET. ALL HAIL OMEGON!
Crud. Omegon’s making a comeback and took over Moody Tuna. I have a taser…
I don’t think that’s going to work. 😛
I got to watch the video here, however … I’m gonna miss this place, despite the hilarious video. “You are not a counter!” XD
Hehe, glad you enjoyed the vid.
*hnng* Senpai answered me! *faints*
It’s all just an April fool’s joke, hehe. Yeah, I was wondering what the big (and probably limited) changes would be. Of course Slanted Fish haven’t left, she’s still on the list over the PHB’s authors. I’m sure she (and hopefully maybe Blake and Samwow5 too) will return when this prank is over. I guess it’ll be announced in the next few days.
(PS: This is my first comment ever on the Poptropica Help Blog. I love Poptropica and this blog, and I hope none of them will ever be closed down.)
Just want to say, glad to have you commenting! 😀
What!? You actually replied! 😀 This is so cool!
Yeh. 😛 I try to reply to all of the comments on my posts. 😛
(Although, I haven’t for some, cause there’s so many)
Understand. There is really a LOT.
Yeah totally a prank!
EVERY COMMENT SAID, MAY OR MAY NOT, OR NOT SPECIFICALLY A JOKE. NO ONE SAID WE ARE DEAD SERIOUS!
So, something is a prank, either everything (fishy leaving, the vlog, deleting the blog) or just deleting the blog. I mean, even with a vlog, you all would NEVER delete the blog. April Fools joke it is.
I bet you this is all a prank.
It has prank written all over it. I mean, Yall do a prank every year. Club penguin was a good one and had lots fooled. JUST LIKE THIS!
But this sounds kinda serious. I mean, all of the authors in the same place… all of the PHB’s videos are marked with PHV… they changed their youtube name to PHV… and, the authors ARE getting older and might need some time to just have some space and relax. The Omegon and Club Penguin prank were pretty much impossible, but this seems so… real!
IF NOT A PRANK, KEEP THE BLOG. YA DONT HAVE TO UPDATE THE BLOG, JUST KEEP IT SO WE CAN READ OLDER POSTS.
LOL no need to yell :P. Maybe the PHV is the best thing for the PHB authors to do. But, this is crushing the dreams of people who wanted to be a PHB author someday. I am just having mixed feelings about this…
I hope it is a prank. But, there is one thing that doesn’t add up. Fishy said “….this wonderful place..I may return ” and if its deleted….get me? She can’t return to the wonderful place? I’m suspicious.
I think, if they do wanna do clogs, they don’t have to DELETE the blog. They could keep it so we can read older posts.
Well bye. After April 8 (if not a prank, though probably is ) I’m going to start poptrickia. Also, on EFPRI (Escape from pelican rock) the license plate reference? PHB-1?
WHAT? The PHV is much better than the PHB.
I would say that they are the same on the awesomeness scale (Way high up, BTW), but if they kept both that would be AWESOME!!!
Yeah. Thè only thing I don’t like? Deleting the blog.
ALL HAIL O- wha- quick wing?
They’ve closed down the PHB and turned it into the PHV.
this is surprisingly convincing
Gotta love ‘dem circles Cobalt :p
Yeh he does. 😉 😉
NO FISHY!!!! No, that really slays! 😥
What ok is this a April Fools joke?! Cause if so this is not funny! We don’t the PHB to change! Who’s with me?!
So, I am not for Fishy leaving or the PHB leaving, but I have to admit, that was the best 9 minutes and 10 seconds of my life.
XD thank you
Think about it guys, it was posted on april first! Aprial Fools day!
And Slanted fish posted that the day before that! How can this not be considental hum?!
This has to be a joke… I want PHB back!
I know or Popmageddon will start!
That’s it. -_-
Forget life. I’m done. Bye…
Oh no, not again.
Lol I think this post has the record for biggest amount of comments (excluding the ASG’s maybe) cuz I just checked and I saw 163
That would be super cool, but sadly it’s not. 😛
OMG!!! More than 400 comments!?!?
Wait, what about the Avatar Studio Gift?
Gotta love those circles XD
It’s sad seeing the PHB close down, however, gotta admit, PHV does seem interesting 😛 (wink-wink 😉 )
Very interesting 😛
Great! Can’t wait! (Oh snap it rhymed o_O) 😛
Finally somebody summed up my feelings :P! That describes exactly what I have been trying to say!
It’s happing Popmageddon!
THIS HAS TO STOP RIGHT NOW!!!
You guys didn’t say that it’s not a prank!
I agree with ALL your comments, Quick Wing!
WE WANT PHB BACK
I don’t really like the idea of vlogs. Some people just like reading everything. Now if you did vlogs and blogs, that’s a different story.
Ahem, for 1, READ THE DATE! IT SAYS APRIL 1ST! and second, cough, why don’t you do both the PHB and PHV. I mean all that hard PHB work to waste! sniff, sniff. But hey, this could be a April Fools Joke?
Oh yea, The PHV loks amazing!
I’m sorry, I mean looks instead of loks :`
I knew it the whole time :p
THIS IS A PRANK! I mean, it has to be!! They wouldn’t just…DELETE the blog! Especially Fishy…oh, how I miss her….🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠But maybe fishy leaving is also a prank! THIS HAS TO BE APRIL FOOLS!
If not a prank, keep the blog, ya don’t have to update it, just let us read old posts!
Wait the heading changed back to norm!!! IT IS A PRANK!!!!
I never actually watched the video. Now that I have…
Area of a segment of a circle=(r^2)/2 x (θπ/180 – sinθ)
Good night and remember a circle is not a semicircle is not an arc is not a parabola is not a hyperbola is not an ellipse is a curve HAPPY HANNUKAH
WHAT DO YOU MEAN IT’S NOT HANNUKAH
