Hey, friends! This is Gentle Dolphin, resident pop blogger and social media sleuth, here with some pop news! Poptropica was pretty active on social media yesterday, so let’s get started with a post regarding Poptropica’s in-game social media: the player wall, aka the friends page.
Yesterday afternoon, the Creators turned to the internet to ask players for their thoughts on the player wall. On the Creators’ Blog, they wrote, “We’re wanting your feedback on the player wall – what do you love, what do you think we should add, what do you want removed!?!”
Players replied to their Instagram post and gave some good feedback on the player wall. A lot of people asked for the return of previous features such as island photos, pop quizzes, and tribe common rooms. A couple others requested for more customization options for non-members. However, one comment from Instagram user ben_246 stood out from the rest. There, he sent a clear message to the Creators:
“Where 👏 is 👏 the 👏 poptropican 👏 of 👏 the 👏 week 👏 or 👏 house 👏 of 👏 the 👏 week 👏 or 👏 even 👏 realm 👏 of 👏 the 👏 week 👏”
The Creators heard his cry and and responded, “Coming tonight, we promise!!” True to their word, a new entry in the “Look of the Week” series was posted on Instagram later that night; it was then posted on the Creators’ Blog and on Twitter earlier this morning. The second “Look of the Week” winner is Messy Crown:
On the Creators’ Blog, Blue Tooth wrote, “Messy Crown caught our eye with her ears and headphones combo!” Congratulations, Messy Crown! You have the honor of joining Young Turtle in the “Look of the Week” Hall of Fame!
If you’d like the chance to be featured in the next “Look of the Week”, put on your best outfit and head over to the Blast-Off Arcade. Who knows, one of the Creators may notice you and give you a spot.
But wait, there’s more! Earlier today, I went to the Creators’ Blog to see the new “Look of the Week” post and found another post that was made today! This post contains a picture of a lizard wearing a wizard hat and a pearl necklace. A small note in the picture states that you can get these items if you check out the pet shop updates.
Sure enough, there are four new pet accessories in the pet shop: a sorcerer hat, a pair of pink sunglasses, a pearl necklace, and some cute blue eyes. These are really nice items to give pets; it’s a shame that they’re all members-only.
That’s all for now (unless the Creators decide to post something else tonight). What are your thoughts on these Poptropica posts? Thoughts on the player wall (friends page)? What do you think of the new pet accessories? Let us know in the comments below!
Thank you for reading, and have a good day!
