Hi, everyone! Slip here.
A while back, I offered nominations for the next Community Celebrities. Interestingly enough, two Poptropicans who have been in the spotlight for quite a while now – Tall Cactus and Perfect Sky – both nominated each other! I decided to interview them together for this next Community Celebrities post.
You can learn more about each of them in their respective MPIP (My Place in Poptropica) stories here on the PHB: Tall Cactus and Perfect Sky. But of course, that’s just the tip of the iceberg! Let this interview tell you more about these famed personalities in our community.
Can you introduce your friend to everyone in 10 words? Also, mention their usernames!
TC: Perfect Sky, Community Appreciation winner, runs an outstanding YouTube channel. (Her username on Poptropica is stupiddirectord)
PS: Meet the awesome, award-winning blogger, Tall Cactus! (Her username on Poptropica is macandcheese520)
If there were two islands you could “mash” together, what would they be?
TC: I’d mash together Mission Atlantis and Lunar Colony. I’m not exactly sure how this mashup island would go, but it’s been confirmed that MA and LC both feature the same alien race, and that’s why I feel like they could be one amazing, story-filled island together.
PS: I would say Monster Carnival and Ghost Story. I loved MC: the storyline, setting, and the soundtrack was awesome. I think the Creators did a good job with the overall creepiness of the island. That is, until the monster transformation. Random, generic “monsters” just aren’t scary at all, so I think it could use a little something extra. That’s where Ghost Story would come in.
Would you prefer the current Poptropica or the upcoming New Poptropica?
TC: To be honest, I prefer Old Pop. It’s the Poptropica I’ve grown to love these past couple years, I have so many memories from the first time I played Poptropica in March 2015. However, I’m sure the New Pop will be just as awesome. It’s just that the nostalgia from the Old Pop just overpowers it.
PS: Well, I just love the Old Poptropica. I have so many great memories, as a player since early 2008. But even though nothing can really compare to the game I’ve known and loved for many years, I think the New Pop will be good in its own way.
What do you think of the New Poptropica?
TC: When it was first announced back in April, I was really upset and worried, but now I’m just anxious for it to come out. I’m not really sure what to think of it at the moment since we haven’t gotten many details, yet I have a much better feeling about it now compared to before.
PS: Honestly, I was really sad when it was first announced. But at this point, I’m actually starting to look forward to it in some ways. I guess we’ll see how it goes.
Besides the PHB, which other Poptropica fan blogs would you recommend?
TC: All of the fan blogs are special in their own way, and they all bring unique content for everyone to enjoy.
What’s your current Island Medallion count?
TC: I currently have all 58 medallions. Hopefully, more are added soon! (I actually got the Beta Carrotene medallion by glitching, shhh…)
PS: I have 57 at the moment, with Home Island being the only one I’m missing. The sad thing is, I actually completed the Home Island quest like 20 times on the app.
What’s the best thing about the Poptropica community?
TC: The people, definitely the people. They are so kind and welcoming; I’ve made many friends here. To me, good friendships and enjoyable experiences are much more important than having a popular blog or whatnot.
PS: The people! I’ve met so many nice people here, and nothing means more to me than that.
If you could swap hobbies for a day with your friend, what hobby would it be?
TC: I’d love to try making some Poptropica YouTube videos. Unfortunately, I’m not allowed to have a YouTube channel, so it would be cool to experience having one for 24 hours.
PS: I think blogging would be pretty fun, since I never really blog aside from occasional guest posts.
Do you have anything to say to the Poptropica community?
TC: Don’t worry about New Pop, I’m sure it’ll be great. Instead, enjoy the current Poptropica as it is and live in the moment. Don’t lose hope in the game, or the community, no matter what the future holds.
PS: This community is truly awesome, and it wouldn’t be as great without all of you contributing to it in your own special ways. Be creative, and don’t give up.
Who would you like to thank?
TC: I’d like to thank everyone reading this post, and all the Creators of Poptropica, one of the greatest games ever in my opinion.
PS: I’d like to thank all of my subscribers on YouTube, and everyone who comments on my videos. It really means so much to me! I also want to thank the Creators for making such an amazing game!
Cut! That’s a wrap! First off, to Perfect Sky and Tall Cactus, thank you so much! I’m deeply sorry that this post didn’t come out earlier as I had hoped. I hope you enjoyed the interview as much as I did! I had lots of fun talking to you two!
To everyone, Community Celebrities will be back next year, hopefully. Nominations for the next to be interviewed are currently closed. See you all later in this year’s Poptropica Rewind! :>
