A New Author Claws His Way In: Purple Claw!

Hey there, Poptropicans!

As you’ve probably read in the title, I’m the newest author here on the PHB. I’m really honored to be here, and I’d like to thank Fishy and the whole team for giving me this great opportunity!

I’m John, but you can also call me Purple Claw, which is my Poptropican’s name. I’m also known as PC, Pea Sea, and Mr. Potato in the Poptropica community, but you can call me whatever you want, as long as I’m comfortable with it. 😛


If you haven’t heard of me, here’s a little about myself:

I first played Poptropica in 2013 in my school’s computer lab. After that, I forgot all about Poptropica, but I was re-introduced to the game a year later. It wasn’t until 2016 that I became more familiar with this community, and I decided to create my own blog, called Clawtropica! If you’re interested in more of my story, I encourage you to read my MPIP!

Some of you might know that I briefly quit blogging recently, but during those few days, I realized how much I missed blogging about my favorite game. So, after two days, I came back (that was fast, I know). And the very next day, I was invited to become an author for the awesome Poptropica Help Blog, so here I am now! I promise that I’ll write interesting and fun posts for all of you Poptropica fans.

So, I’m a 14 (almost 15)-year-old boy and I live in England. Besides Poptropica, I’m a fan of many other media, from TV shows like Steven Universe and Adventure Time to comics from the DC Universe. I also like animals, trees, my friends, my family, French fries and many other things.

If you’d like to talk to me, I’m on the PHC most of the time! I’m also on Twitter, DeviantArt, and YouTube, but the best places to reach me are WordPress and Discord. I also blog on another awesome fan blog called A Quota of Poptropica, created by our very own Happy Lobster, and I co-own the Poptropica Bloggers Network alongside my fellow buddy, Hyper Gamer.

As I’ve said before, I’m really excited to be a part of the PHB, and I’ll strive to make this community even more fun! I’ll see you guys soon!

  1. I saw this post, and I was….. OMG!!!!!! YES HE’S FINALLY AN AUTHOR! I really wanted you to be on the PHB, because I believe you can do some amazing things!!!!!!!! YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. So Purple Claw you said that you promise that you will write good blog posts. This includes Top 10s theories,reviews,and just other stuff. Plz just do not only post news because the PHB in my opinion really needs some good stuff like I mentioned before. PROMISE YOU ARE GOING TO POST GOOD STUFF?

    1. I promised that I’ll write interesting posts like, two times. Yes, and that indeed includes lists, theories and other stuff you mentioned. I won’t let you down. 🙂

  3. Is there some sort of specialized training to become a PHB author? PC, you’re younger than me (I’m already an ancient 15-year-old), and look at this great achievement. Congratulations! Just a little jealous, though.

    1. There isn’t any special formula for it, per se – it really comes down to circumstances (if the PHB is looking for another author) and who we know that we think would be a good fit (generally, this is someone who’s active in the community, gets along with people, has blogging experience, writes well, etc – not all are requirements, but are helpful). There are lots of factors, but age isn’t one of them. 😛

What's popping, Poptropicans?
