Recap: Poppies 2017 Winners and Party!

Hey Poptropicans!

Throughout this month on the PHB, we’ve been hosting The Poppies, our annual Poptropica community awards event. This is our third year of doing the Poppies, and as usual, it’s been a blast! From nominating to voting to partying, we’re grateful to celebrate the Poptropica community with you.

Even the Poptropica Creators showed interest in our Red Blue Carpet event!

The main event, which celebrated the Poppies winners and the PHB’s ninth birthday with a lively party on the PHC and Poptropica Multiverse rooms, has just wrapped up. Thanks to all who attended – can you find yourself in the recap collage above?

We see amazing costumes at every PHB event, but this year we really wanted to highlight some of our favorites. So, we’ve compiled a selection of some stand-out outfits from the Poppies attendees in the Multiverse rooms! Check out their snazzy suits:

Kudos to Red Crush, Greedy Shadow, Mia (aka Grumpy Cactus – she also won Best Poptropica Fansite alongside her friend LillySparkle$!), Sporty Boa (who almost died for his outfit!), and Spotted Lion! Y’all are looking especially fly on the blue carpet.

Of course, what you really wanna know is who won, right?! We announced all the winners via a livestream during the party, but in case you missed it, you can catch up on it below. The video contains commentary from several PHB authors – Brave Tomato (main host), Spotted Dragon, Silver Wolf, and Lucky Joker – as well as pics for each category and a breakdown of voting percentages via charts (to show how the other nominees fared).

Below the video, we’ll also list out all the winners and the second-place runner-ups.

And the Poppies go to…

A huge congratulations is in order for all the winners of this year’s Poppies!!

Winners should have received a printable paper Poppie trophy from us via email or social media, and nominees (those who made it to the voting round) have been given badges. Thanks to Spotted Dragon for creating these! If you earned a Poppies trophy or badge but did not get one, we may not have your contact info – if so, do let us know!

Here at the Poptropica Help Blog, we can’t stress enough how blessed we are to be able to write about something we love and have so many readers who keep up with our shenanigans. Whether we’re planning creative parties or putting together island walkthroughs, it’s a pleasure to play Poptropica alongside all of you.

So thank you. Thank you for being part of this community, in big ways or small ways, whether veteran or newbie. Thank you for seeing us to our 9th year – from 2008 to 2017, it’s been a pretty long journey, and it’s not over yet. Here’s to more to come!

We’ll see you next time on the blue carpet!

 ✨ Don’t stop poppin’! ✨

      Congratulations again!! Pop Blog is a worthy winner, though all the other nominated sites are also awesome in their own right. Thanks for being part of the Poppies! 😀 🏆

    Sent you guys an automated reply, but I felt you deserve the real deal. Thank you SO much for the nomination trophy. Even though I didn’t win, the euphoria I felt for even tying for second was immense. THANK YOU FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY.

    There, all done.

    The party was really fun! Too bad I couldn’t stay long enough for the lag explosions. It was still pretty awesome! 😀

    Its sad to see that i only recorded the party around 9:00 pm when the party was strongest at 7:30 to 8:45… I even missed the livestream. But oh well at least I made it to the party and some footage 🙂 Also for the best Active fan site I wonder why Thinknoodles got voted second for the best fansite? He does not even do much Poptropica videos… His channel is mainly Minecraft and roblox?

    • Slanted Fish says:

      I’m glad you were able to come! 🙂 Also, I suppose people continue to find his Poptropica videos useful, or remember them fondly from the past – but you are right in that he doesn’t post much Poptropica anymore. He did send us a thank-you for his nominee badge though.

    Wait, I lost by a single vote? xD I knew I was close to Tall Cactus in vote percentage for PHC Best Staffer but I didn’t know I was that close ^^’. Wish I could have made it to the multiverses, but Puffin isn’t great with running Poptropica and I had no alternative. Glad that if Poptropica Worlds brings something like multiverses there won’t be a dividing line between PC and Mobile; well, at least I’m hoping that will be the case. Here’s to another year of the PHB, hope to pop on by the Poppies next year ^_^ .

    • Slanted Fish says:

      Yup! It was very close and you were ahead at some points during the voting round. Congrats! 😀 I hope to see multiplayer features on Worlds soon, as well – and good point that it would heal a divide between computer and mobile!

    The party was AWESOME! Even though I missed most of the livestream (and spent most of the remaining time standing motionless near a bunch of marshmallows that I couldn’t even eat) the PHC chat was wonderful… and actually active. Thank you so much for the wonderful work you have been doing for the past 9 years. Oh man! This September, Pop completes 10. And thanks for putting up with me for the last two years. Not many people have that kind of patience. Even though I am kinda invisible.

    • Slanted Fish says:

      I’m really glad you made it, and enjoyed it, even though you had an exam that day! It’s amazing to think that Poptropica is almost 10. Digital games don’t often stay popular for that long, so it’s quite impressive, and I’m blessed to be part of it.

      Plus, no worries! It’s great to have you around and I hope you stick around. 😀

    Congrats to all the winners! Sadly I couldn’t make it to the party this year, but it looked like fun! 🙂

What's popping, Poptropicans?
