Poptropican Meme Face Mondays: The Grand Finale

Heyyo Poptropicans, it’s Ultimate iPad Expert here.


That’s right. Welcome everyone to Round 70, the grand finale of PMFM (Poptropican Meme Face Mondays)!


PMFM has lasted 17 months, with 70 rounds (plus a couple of specials) and a whopping 250+ meme faces (if you include birthday memes and others – 213 if you don’t). It’s honestly kind of crazy at this point.

Really, as cheesy as it is, I couldn’t have made PMFM what it has been without all of you. All of the readers, commenters, and especially those who asked for meme faces: you kept this going.

My mission for this series has been to bring a little fun and happiness to everyone. And whether or not PMFM achieved this for you personally, I appreciate all the support it’s gotten that has has helped keep it alive for so long.

But as we all know, everything must come to an end at some point, whether we like it or not. And so, in case you hadn’t picked up on the word finalePMFM is officially over. But that is not all…

Just over two years ago, I made my first post here on the PHB after a set of unexpected events. This brought about something in my life. It began a new chapter. Although I had been in the community before, I’d never been quite as involved up until then. Here, where there were so many great people, I met many who, to this day, are some of my best friends.

But now we’re here. In just two years, I’ve watched authors come and leave. I’ve watched a lot of change in the community, for both good and bad. Yet regardless of flaws, I still love this community.

That said, the time has come for me to leave this community.

There are plenty of reasons I can give, but primarily, I’m just not the same person anymore. I suppose there’s an aspect of “growing up” that is bringing me to this place. I’m learning to drive, I have a couple of job interviews this week, I’m going to nationals for debate, I’ve been improving my health greatly, and I also get to vote this year. All new to me.

This isn’t to say I don’t like Poptropica or the community, or that I think it’s just for kids or anything. I still love Poptropica and this community. I still love so many of the great people. I’m just not the same person I was.

So it’s time for me to move on. After today, I’m leaving the PHB, the PHC, and basically just leaving the community as a whole. I’m sure I’ll stop by occasionally, but for all intents and purposes, I’ll be gone. I hate to make it so sudden, but this is just how it’s going to be.

I wish luck to the community, the PHB, whatever deserved author replaces me here, and to everyone who reads this message. You have all forever made a mark in my life which will never leave me. You’ll be in my prayers. Thank you.

And with that, Meme King out. 👑

Good luck to you and whatever adventures you journey into next, Meme King.
