My Place in Poptropica: Silly Socks

This is the My Place in Poptropica story of Silly Socks, who found Poptropica through Diary of a Wimpy Kid and literally dreams about being on the PHB team. See below for details on how to send in your MPIP story to be published here on the PHB!

My name is Silly Socks and I’m sorry if I get off-topica. *eyes roll* My username is epic45. I live in Canada. I belong to the Wildfire tribe. I’m not a great artist, but I try to draw Dr. Hare. He looks pretty good. Speaking of Dr. Hare, he is my favorite villain in Poptropica. I’m a fan of the blog too. *takes deep breath* Okay, here I go.

The Early Years

Many years ago, when I was about 3, I remember my brother playing Wimpy Wonderland Island and even letting me try. I kept on running into the door to the basement were Rodrick was playing.

I later forgot about Poptropica. But I remembered random pieces of it, like the old login screen, Wimpy Wonderland, Dr. Hare, and Greg from Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

Years Later

Years later, I fell in love with the Diary of a Wimpy Kid book series. One day I saw a link to the Diary of a Wimpy Kid website on the back of a book. I checked it out and saw something that looked like the membership symbol, which I clicked on—and it turned out to be Poptropica!

Upon rediscovering Poptropica, I saw things that I had remembered, like the login screen. That’s how I got back into the game.

Me, my friends, and Poptropica vs. Prodigy

My real name is Elizabeth, and I was born in mid-December 2008, which makes me 9, almost 10 today. I’ve tried to bring others to Poptropica.

I have friend named Mikolas who has joined, but he can’t remember how to come to this blog. Mikolas shares a locker at school with another friend, Gavin, who also wants to join Poptropica. Mikolas doesn’t want Gavin to know about Poptropica, but I don’t think that’s fair or nice.

There’s a game I have called Prodigy that I sometimes play. But I also like Poptropica—well, not just like—I love Poptropica! 😊Poptropica is definitely my favorite. It’s my favorite because, unlike Prodigy, Poptropica wouldn’t rub membership in my face (though I still don’t like the idea of membership ☹).

Dreaming to be on the blog

One day I found the PHB because of a YouTube video. The video was about how to do an ASG, and I wanted to do one. So, I went to the help blog and eventually got caught up in the community over here. I comment on this blog as poptropica girl.

My dream is to be a part of the Poptropica Help Blog team. I do, literally, dream about it. Recently, I had a dream about it that started with me in my schools’ playground. I had customized pretty, hot pink, long, blond pigtails. Then the earth became Poptropica. It was night and I had just been invited to the PHB team… but, sadly, it was just a dream.

No matter what, I think I would’ve found my way to Poptropica somehow. I’ve also started to like blogging and I encourage you to write a guest post for the PHB, too. I want to see more “My Place in Poptropica” posts. I’d like to know more about you and your Poptropican. That’s it for now!

    Well Silly Socks, microtransactions is a thing to tolerate; even when when it is implimented in a unbalanced way (*cough* *cough* Club Penguin and Club Penguin Island *cough* *cough*)

    Nice post there though, hope you make your dream come true! 👍

        “Be sure to login every day to receive your epic member gifts this month.”

        Yeah, pretty much for members. Although I’m getting very curious of why they’re promoting Pop original more than Pop Worlds now. I mean, why not promote your latest product? At least do both simultaneously. I for one wonder if they’re gonna fix the physics engine so it’ll more smooth and flouid like Pop original.

      • Shiny B1rd says:

        @GreedyShadow: Yeah, it is strange to see Worlds not being promoted as much, but I guess it’s hard to do so since there hasn’t been much new content for a while now. Let’s not forget, though, that the creators have said before that they’re working on updates to Pop Original that “have to happen” to keep it running even after Flash goes down in 2020 (stated in the link below), which is like, literally almost a year from now. I imagine that they’re focusing development on Original than Worlds because of this.

        The clock is ticking!

      • GreedyShadow says:

        Yeah, yet they’re also finding a way to keep Pop original running after Flash becomes history. If they couldn’t find a solution, they would tell use… I think.
        (The Poptropica team has been now known to make some odd or weird decisions lately. 😕)

    I remember prodigy… I used to play it 3 or 4 years ago. I stopped playing it because of the fact that it seemed like you had to pay to do anything. I forget if there was a storyline or not, but I don’t think I would have been able to finish it since I couldn’t get membership. You’re right, the game did “rub membership in your face”.

        Now, if you log in, after the battle you do, your excepted to go to the Academy. Well, not excepted. FORCED is a better word. You are FORCED to go to the Academy and go through a cut-scene. Then you can leave. Also, if your playing at school, your not allowed to go to Dino dig or lamp light town or your house. Click home instead. Even if your at school. I do it all the time. The Academy is very fun. Now, if you go to any place, you can get a new name. I went from Elizabeth Moonsong to Storm chaser Elizabeth.

What's popping, Poptropicans?
