This is the My Place in Poptropica story of Quick Fang, who created lots of one-day-old characters before finally making her Quick Fang account. See below for details on how to send in your MPIP story to be published here on the PHB!
Hello, this is Quick Fang and I am going to tell about how I came to Poptropica, which is my “My Place in Poptropica” story. My username is password291 if you want to add me. 🙂 I belong to the same tribe as Thinknoodles, which is the Black Flags. Alright, let’s start.
2015 | Discovering Poptropica
While searching for good books to read, I came across the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. The author, as you may know, was Jeff Kinney, the founder of Poptropica. I searched for a free version of the book, which is how I found Funbrain. There, I came across an ad for something called Poptropica. I thought it was a weird name at first, but when I clicked on the ad, it took me to the so-called Poptropica—which turned out to be pretty interesting!
First came the login screen, where I saw several characters (or Poptropicans) running across the screen. I created my first Poptropican and played islands. But I didn’t know about how to save my Poptropicans. (Poor little one-day-olds, they must be lonely.)
I remember playing Vampire’s Curse Island and how I enjoyed watching my poor Poptropican continuously get hit by Wolfy. 🐺 (Poor little thing…)
2016 | Goodbye (but not forever)
I stopped playing Poptropica at some point, but I don’t really remember why! 😶 Maybe it had gotten boring. Just think about it, coming back every time to just stare stare at the screen, where it asks you to create a new character every time you want to play (again, this was before I knew about saving my characters!). 😥
2018 | Getting back, and finding the PHB
One day, while wondering about what to do, the thought struck me like lightning: “What about Poptropica?”
I immediately typed in Poptropica.com and found the same login screen, with the Poptropicans running across. I was really happy to discover a way to save my characters: just click on the Save button on the bottom right and rescue your character from the vast lonely space. 😉 That’s how I created my first account, Quick Fang.
I tried to play Poptropica islands, but couldn’t finish them. Some parts were too hard, like on Super Villain Island, where you have to freeze the rotating spikes at the right time. I searched for help on Google, and like many other people, that’s how I found the Poptropica Help Blog.
When I learned that Slanted Fish was only 11 years old when she created this blog, I was impressed. The guides on the PHB were very helpful to me and have helped me complete several islands. I even dream of being an author on this blog. I am grateful to Slanted Fish for posting my story. Wishing the team good luck! 😊
Hope you enjoyed this “My Place in Poptropica” story!
