Ask the Joker is a Q&A segment here on the PHB where you, dear readers, are invited to send in your Poptropica questions to have them answered, with wit, wisdom, and wisecracks, by one Incredible Joker.
Name any weird Poptropican names! ~Cheerful Comet
Not exactly a question but here you go 😜. I mean, most names are pretty unique on Poptropica to begin with. Especially now that we have a bit more choice in the matter with the Custom Name Genie. But I guess the weirdest one to me would have to be Lizard. I know that may seem like an odd choice, but there use to be a glitch that I have not checked out in a long time with that name. Every now and then I would make a character just to look at all the different names, but sometimes I would come across ones with only a single name. Whenever that happened, it filled in the last name as ‘Lizard’. I still have an account I never used with that as the name 👍.
How do you think the devs would react if they found out about glitches and our poptropicans with uncustomizables? ~Silver Horse
And speaking of glitches, onto our next question. Honestly, I am not certain how they would feel. With all the other things they have on their plate, I do not believe they would fix anything as soon as it was seen. It would probably take some time to find out how it was done and how to keep it from happening.
And even then, there will always be people who find ways around it all to do things that nobody expects or has thought of before. I myself found two glitches recently (unless someone else has talked about them and I just live under a rock 😂😅):
1) If you have the Poptropica app, you can still spin the daily wheel there and then get your login bonus on Haxe, and both will count towards your account.
2) On Kira’s Island’s matching card game, I accidentally won with only two cards 🤣. I found one match and kept spamming it, and it counted as all the matches I needed, and gave me the reward for the game like it usually would. And for anyone still curious, we do have a page for this type of stuff with glitches and secrets on it!
I see you’re a permanent author now. How do you feel being a part of the PHB? ~Soda
Weird. (Honestly I make most of this stuff up as I go 😛). I am pretty sure that as of now I have written every post of mine the night before it was supposed to go up 😅. It is nice to be a part of it and help out fellow fans even if I have not actually given out too much advice yet. And to any aspiring writers reading this, remember that all it takes is a thought! I sent in an idea to the PHB and was invited to make it myself. So don’t be afraid to send in an idea or submit a guest post or just ask about tips to write an article. Personally I thought some of my ideas were stupid or not original, but I have been told otherwise so 😂😅 if I can do it, then anybody can.
And as they say, third time’s the charm! Thus ends part three of (to be determined). I’ll see you all next week (or sooner? Hint hint?) and I will try to answer more of your eager questions. Now take whatever advice you will from this, and hop to it! 🐰
