Hey Poptropicans! This is a guest post written by Poptropica community member Gabren, who discusses thoughts on the frequency of changing one’s Poptropica avatar look. Enjoy!
Why do Poptropicans change their look so much?
This is a question I get a lot on sites like Quora, which is a question asking-and-answering website I discovered recently. Anyway, I’ve wondered about this question myself. I’m not one to frequently change my appearance in-game, but when I do change it, I look back on how I looked before, and I think to myself:
“Wow, did I REALLY look that bad?”
And that is why I believe we like to change our avatars around so much. We see something that looks better in our eyes, so we feel like changing to it. But that doesn’t mean we have to change.
I don’t change my character on the game very much for two reasons:
- because I am content with what I have.
- because the items I own took a lot of effort to collect them all in just the way I like it, even though I got most of them through the PHB’s Avatar Studio Gift.
My recommendation? Be content with what you have! So many people are always anxious about how they look, and in this game, it’s no different. Look, I’m
not saying you shouldn’t be open to change. I don’t want you to get bored with your avatar.
I always try to achieve the point of perfection with how I look. When I see someone else with a cool skin tone on Poptropica, I don’t covet it. I think, “Oh wow, that looks really cool, but I’m content with my own.”
If I do want to change, it’s never a big change. I might change my beard style a little here, or change my eyes a little there. But I try to have a standard recognizable avatar, like Thinknoodles, the YouTube gamer known for his Poptropica walkthrough videos, among others. He almost never changes his avatar, and it looks pretty cool.
Well, that’s it for now. I hope to post more on this blog, so keep an eye out for more posts like this.
