PHB Parties

PHB’s Summer Kickoff Party 2016: You’re All Invited!


Hey, Poptropicans! What time is it?!

SUMMER TIME!! (Yes, High School Musical reference fully intended.)

Oh, and the PHB recently reached 25 million hits! That’s two reasons to celebrate! And that means…ย we’re hosting a party! The party will be held at the PHC, a placeย for Poptropicans to talk, share Multiverse codes, and just have a good time!

If you’re not familiar with the PHC, it’s the PHB’s official chat hangout, and it stands for Poptropica Help Chat. Anyone is welcomeย to come and chat at any time, even when there isn’t a party going on. You can access it anytime at the link, and we highly encourage you to make a Discord account – it’s easy and free! You might even meet a Poptropica Creator!

It’s important to note that the PHC isย a kid-friendly chat, with certain guidelines in place. You can find theseย under the #tutorial text channel, where you’ll also find other things like formatting help, a channel guide, and more! Our party will most likely take place in the #main channel, but feel free to explore the other channels as well! Since moving away from Xat a while back, this will be our first PHC party on Discord, and we hope it’s a good one!

This year’sย summer solstice is Monday, June 20, 2016 at 6:34pm EST, so if you come a little early, you can join us in counting down to the summer kickoff! From there, the festivities could go on for a few hours, so feel free to come and go as your schedule permits.

Anyway, you’re all invited, andย here are the details for the event:

  • WHO: Everyone is welcome to come and talk to other Poptropicans and PHB staff!
  • WHAT: Chatting on the PHC (Discord) with other Poptropicans
  • WHEN: Monday, June 20, 2016 at 6:30pm Easternย (that’s 5:30pm Central, 4:30pm Mountain, 3:30pm Pacific Time โ€“ for all other time zones, please check a time-zone converter to find out what time that is in your area!)ย You are welcome to join in earlier or later as well.
  • WHERE: The PHC! Click here to get to the PHB’s official chat.
  • WHY: We’re celebrating the PHB’s milestone of 25 million hitsย as well as the official start of summer beginning with the solstice on June 20, 2016 at 6:34pm EST!

If you have any questions about the party,ย ask in the comments and we’ll answer you as best as we can! To get an idea of what to look forward to, check out our past PHB party recaps!

Well, see you there, Poptropicans! Don’t miss out on the fun. ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. Of course, this party has to be when I am at the beach. I’ll try to make it, but I won’t be there the entire time. At least the beach I’m going to is in NJ so it’s still in Eastern Time, making it in the evening, so that should improve my chances. And is there even a better way to kick off summer than by going on the PHC at the beach of all places!

    Oh, and what about the people who live in the Southern Hemisphere? It will be the Winter Kickoff for them! Sorry…

    1. It’s okay if you can’t stay for the entire time. Have fun at the beach! ๐Ÿ˜€

      Yup, it would be winter in the southern hemisphere, but that’s okay – they can still celebrate with us!

  2. Quite weird, since Tuesday, June 21st marks the beginning of Winter in most South American countries (including mine).
    How does that even work? Our world is strange…

    I think I’ll be at school at that time, but I’ll try to make it there. In case I don’t make it, congratulations for +25 million hits!

    1. Earth is strange indeed. It’s because of its tilted axis. ๐Ÿ˜› Well, happy winter solstice to you! Most countries in South America follow North American timezones, so you may be able to make it. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Since the world is tilted, the side tilted to the sun is Summer (America), the side underneath that is winter(South America), across from america is Fall (Europe and Asia), and lastly across from South America is Spring (Australia).

  3. HOLD the PHONE!
    And give it to me.
    I’m In West Virginia, so what time zone is that?
    I’m too lazy to look it up… heh.

    1. Quick Google search confirms my assumption that West Virginia is in the Eastern Time Zone, meaning the party will start for you at 6:30.

      It’s kind of a good thing I live on the west coast for this – I have to be places by 6:30 in my timezone, but it starts at 3:30 in my timezone, so I’ll be there (unless I forget). ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  4. OMG! I may actually be able to make this one… I’ll keep my fingers crossed though! ๐Ÿ˜›

  5. Hey I think I should be able to come ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽ†๐ŸŽ†๐ŸŽ†๐ŸŽ†๐ŸŽ‡๐ŸŽ‡๐ŸŽ‡๐ŸŽ‡๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐ŸŠ๐ŸŠ๐ŸŠ๐ŸŠ๐ŸŠ๐ŸŠ๐ŸŠ๐ŸŠ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•

    1. Orange Shell, this is you’re 3rd time commenting with too many emojis. you should just say:
      Hey I think I should be able to come ๐Ÿ˜Ž Or something.

  6. Oh, no. Not the wrath of my least favorite movie. HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL. *sigh* Now let’s see how many people sing tunes from that movie at the high school I’m going to.

    1. At least I’ll be able to come. And who knows, anybody who misses this, I may be making my own parties (even though my computer is slow as molasses, as my dad would say.)

  7. I’ll probably be there when the figurative party streamers go off ๐Ÿ˜› . I’m sure it is going to be loads of fun – the past Xat parties were fun, I’m sure Discord’s will be a blast as well ๐Ÿ˜€ . I’ll probably be taking screenshots of the craziness in Multiverse, so that’ll be something ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

    1. This really will be a blast, considering this is the first time I’m joining an official PHB party! Not only that, but on Discord, which is really neat. ^^

    1. Seems to be the concept for an upcoming Poptropica Credits-related feature. Looks like we may chance our luck with a wheel of fortune to decide how many credits we can earn. Assuming the Credits depicted all over the wheel isn’t referring to a different currency, seems like a neat way to earn some more Credits beyond island hopping and paying legitimate moolah for them ๐Ÿ˜› .

  8. Congratulations to everyone here at the phb for getting that many views! Thats truly incredible!

    1. Could be worse – it’s 6:30am for me (and Slippery Raptor). But feel free to pop in later โ€“ people will probably still be around a couple hours after the start time. ๐Ÿ˜›

    1. I’ve always wanted to go to Australia, my alter ego is from Australia (my accent is horible)

    2. It depends on what part of Australia you’re in, so to answer your question you’ll want to look up what timezone you’re in and use the converter linked in the post to figure it out. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I didn’t know other countries start school in different months… O_O I messaged Slippery on Tumblr and he told me he’s starting school a few days ago, and now?

      my parents never told me that other countries start school in different times

      anyways I might try to get to the party at the 20th ^ u ^

  9. Yeah, like Shaky Shaky Skunk and Silver Tornado, it starts for me at 8:30 am, and I need to be at school then, so I miss it! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Oh, well, at least I’ve been to one other PHB party before.

    1. There are quite a bit of other text channels available on the server for a lot of different aspects of Poptropica, so I don’t think it’s necessary, but it’s a good idea otherwise. ^^

  10. Hey! What time does the party end? Or how long do these parties last? Just asking because I live overseas and the party starts 4:30 AM…kind of early for me especially since it’s summer! Hope I can come! :~)

    1. PHC parties tend to go on for a few hours, but there is no set end time, so you’re welcome to pop in later if that works better for you! Hope to see you there! ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Aww shucks! The party starts at 2:30 AM at my place ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I’m a night owl anyways, so maybe i’ll try staying awake (if I don’t get busted >.<) If not, then i'll probably check the recap, like I used to few months back ๐Ÿ˜›

  12. School’s over and the summer is here, yay! And congratulations to the PHB for 25 million hits! ๐Ÿ˜€
    I’ll see if I can come to the party, but not sure ‘cus it’s starting so late here.

  13. Oh by the way when the party starts if i could make it i will make a youtube video on the party so you can get on youtube so the party will be more fun and you csan look back at the party!!!!!!!!!!

  14. Did some time research, found at in my time zone that your party is at 3:30 AM. Yeah, sorry, I ain’t getting up that early. Oh well. Have fun at your party and enjoy your summer! It’s winter for me..

  15. Since there hasn’t been a post on it yet, I figured I’d leave a comment about the new advertisement building on the most recent blog post – which is this one at the moment ๐Ÿ˜‰ . There is a new advertisement for the upcoming Cartoon Network television crossover special event between Teen Titans Go & Powerpuff Girls – aptly titled Heroes vs. Heroes; or, as one might point out, Reboot vs. Reboot ๐Ÿ˜› . The advertisement seems to restricted in some way, since others do not see the advertisement at all >,< .
    Here's the exterior:
    Here's the interior, which doubles as a Common Room:

    The waves at the bottom are animated, even allowing your Poptropican to swim. Clicking on Beast Boy's snail form at the top right corner will give every Poptropican in the room a temporary Beast Boy floatie, which will vanish once you leave the Common Room. Grabbing Cyborg's Foot at the bottom left will earn you the Teen Titans Costumes item and grabbing Beast Boy's fish form will earn you the Beast Boy Power.
    And here are the items(left version=non-SUI, right version=SUI – not that it matters since both aren't very different):
    The Teen Titans Costumes item allows access to costumes of Robin, Cyborg, and Raven respectively. The Beast Boy Power is a hand held item that will display Beast Boy transformations of either a dog, a gorilla, or a tyrannosaurus rex once spacebar is pressed.

    Oddly enough, both items are Teen Titans Go themed – even clicking on the outside of the ad will link to a Teen Titans Go webpage :/ . I guess the Powerpuff Girls already had their fair share of advertising items from their last appearance in Poptropica.

  16. UPDATE:
    Well now it turns out we are going on some whale/dolphin watching boat thing for a couple hours on Monday at, you guessed it, 6:30 PM EST. Which means I’m gonna miss the party, or be a few hours later. Now let me go cry in a corner…

      1. Aww… I was really expecting you ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ! Well, Have fun. :3
        ( P.S ~ I’m in the same time zone! ๐Ÿ˜€ )

      1. Ikr! I may be able to go for a little bit once I get back to the motel, but it will be late, like 9 pm. Or I could sneak onto Discord from my phone while on the boat, I just don’t know. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see…

      2. โ”ปโ”โ”ป ๏ธตใƒฝ(`ะ”ยด)๏พ‰๏ธต โ”ปโ”โ”ป

  17. I’ll have to wake up at 6:30 am for this, but it’ll be worth it anyway and it’s Ramadan so it won’t be a problem. See you guys then!

      1. noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
        i’m ok. it’ fine.

What's popping, Poptropicans?
