Hey guys, Slip here!
Welcome to a brand new Community Celebrity post! Community Celebrities is a series where people from the Poptropica community are interviewed so you can get to know them more! Like Stolen Snapshots, it used to be on Slippery Raptor’s Blog, but will now be on the PHB instead. You can check out past celebrities here.
What’s the best Island in Poptropica? The worst?
I’d have to say Red Dragon is the best island. Or, at least, it is to me. Though, my opinion on this matter has changed quite a bit over times. Over the course of island completing, I’ve found myself enjoying islands like Astro-Knights or Counterfeit. But for now, Red Dragon remains my favorite.
As for the worst island, I’d have to say either Super Power or Virus Hunter. I can’t say which is worse, as I’d had equally the same frustration, but for different reasons. As far as Super Power goes, I find it too repetitive with hardly any storyline. And Virus Hunter, well… I find it way too long and complicated. Not just that, but it was also very buggy and would lock up way too many times. It wasn’t very enjoyable, to say the least.
What’s your medallion count?
My medallion count is 56 – I’ve completed all the islands, though. For some reason, not all my medallions are showing. I’ve completed PoptropiCon – Episode 1. I’ve tried replaying it, but it’s still not showing up. Perhaps I will need to contact Poptropica. But yeah, I’ve technically beat all the islands.
What’s your favorite game?
Poptropica! C’mon, Slip!
Really, though, my favorite game is actually that. I do play other games like Minecraft, The Sims 4, 60 Seconds!, Bloons TD5, Undertale, and other various games and apps, but I mainly play the game we all know and love today. I’ve come to love the game and its community so much, that I’m often either on the PHC or the MPC Discord server. Either that, or I’m browsing different blogs and its contents. I’m very active in the community!
Who’s your favorite villain?
As I said on question 1, at one point or another, Counterfeit was one of my favorite islands. And we all know what well-known villain was on that island: Black Widow, of course! I think that with a great island, a greater villain should be later revealed. And in this case, it’s our beloved art thief! The main reason I love this villain so much is because of her setting – Counterfeit Island. I believe this island has a good storyline and a good flow.
How did you find the Poptropica community?
The PHB. Generic answer, huh? But yeah, that’s how I got to discover the community. I never really interacted with those around me, though. I basically just read a few PHB posts when curiosity arose, and rarely commented on posts I found interesting. But thanks to joining Twitter, I began to interact with others. I’m not exactly sure of the date, but it was early November of 2015. I started commenting on the Creators’ tweets, and then I started following my fellow Poptropicans, and then I made a blog due to seeing how many other people have made them. And so much has happened since.
Do you have any hobbies?
I like gaming, reading, writing, drawing, and blogging! I also like collecting Snapple bottle caps (as weird as it sounds, they do have cool random facts on them), snow globes (I’ve spent quite a bit of money on them), and I’m always on the lookout for old books (I recently bought a children’s book from 1912 – it’s very worn, and was dusty when I found it). I collect a lot of things if you haven’t noticed by now. 😉
Any extra information you want to share with the community? 🙂
I’d like to encourage everyone to take a look at my blog, Explore Collect Compete, where several Poptropicans, including myself, post. We’re currently looking for just one more author – see this post if you’re interested!
Thank you so much, Mighty Gamer, for taking time to answer this! You’re one awesome Community Celebrity! Stay awesome!
