About the PHB

phb blimp logo2What’s popping? Welcome to the Poptropica Help Blog, also known as the PHB for short. This blog was founded by Slanted Fish on July 26, 2008 and quickly became a popular Poptropica fansite (you can read our history here). We’re part of the Poptropica Help Network.

Here at the PHB, our goal is to enhance your Poptropica experience by sharing game tips, secrets, news, walkthroughs, tools, and more. If you immerse yourself, you’ll also find a fun-loving community in the comments sections, our Discord chat server, and more. Take a ride on the PHB blimp and explore, collect, compete! 😉

The PHB is proud to be an Official VIP fansite of Poptropica. Our VIP badge is displayed on our site’s header and sidebar. Note that we are not Poptropica, but we are players (like you!) who are dedicated to serving this community.

Meet the team

The PHB team consists of our blog’s current staff members. This is the crew that brings you the latest news on the homepage! We are ordinary players, not Poptropica Creators (though we wish we were). Many of us like to hang out on the PHB’s official Discord chat server, the PHC, so you might see us there!

Read the blurbs below to learn a little about the people behind this blog:

Slanted Fish

Hey there! I’m Slanted Fish, the editor-in-chief and creator of the Poptropica Help Blog (PHB). The nickname comes from a wordplay on my Chinese name, my perpetually slanted posture, and my love of fish. I consider myself a writer, artist, appreciator of good puns, Hong Kong native, and Christ follower. Feel free to add me on Poptropica – my username is slantedfish. 🐠

Brave Tomato

Hey guys, my name is Brave Tomato, and I’m a 19-year old girl from New Jersey. I’m a fan artist (both with markers and Sketchbook Pro), writer (specializing in canon expansion), occasional theorist of plotlines, and I also run a YouTube account about Poptropica. You can add me by entering 1313cookie.

Spotted Dragon

Hi, I’m Spotted Dragon, or SD (you can add me at ooolala13), and I’m a girl living in the US. My entire life is basically me freaking out about fandoms and stuff. There’s not much else to it. I also enjoy art and I am a big supporter of human rights. Be sure to check out my DeviantArt and don’t be afraid to start up a conversation!

Slippery Raptor

Hey! I’m Slippery Raptor, but you can call me Slip, Slippery, or SR. I’m a 16-year-old boy living in Asia and I like Poptropica, books, blogging, music, and TV. My Poptropica username is gabz1113. Remember to stay awesome!

Lucky Joker

Hello, everyone! I’m Lucky Joker, a Poptropica enthusiast who lives in the United States. Some of my hobbies include drawing, writing and playing the keyboard – just to name a few. I also dabble in film & production and I enjoy listening to music (a lot). If you wish to add me, enter the username julian0608. I’m also on Twitter and DeviantArt.

Happy Lobster

Hey there! My name is Happy Lobster, but you can just call me HL. I’m a 15-year-old boy who lives in Australia, and I’ve been playing Poptropica since 2008 (and still loving it!). A few of my favourite pastimes include reading, drawing, table tennis, and listening to some music. You can friend my Poptropican any time you like with the username topkop88.

Silver Wolf

Hiya! I’m Silver Wolf, or SW, or Wolfy, a girl who lives in the US. I’ve been playing Poptropica since 2012, sharing it along the way on my blog, the PTFP (Poptropica Tips for Poptropicans). Besides writing, I enjoy drawing, playing video games, and reading. I especially like Harry Potter and Overwatch! I’m also a huge animal lover.

Purple Claw

Heyo! I’m Purple Claw, a 15-year-old boy living in England. I’ve been a Poptropica fan for a long time, and you can friend me with the username donatloul. Blogging is an important part of my life, and I even have my own site at Clawtropica. I also enjoy drawing, watching TV, reading, and of course, playing my favorite game, Poptropica!

    Um, excuse me, Slanted Fish, is Shaggy Tornado not an author anymore? Because Brave Tomato included him in her drawing of the PHB in the issue of the POPCORN which is awesome by the way in September. Just saying. Also late happy bday Samwow5! And I am going to submit something for the October edition of the Popcorn.

    Slanted Fish: Shaggy is not an author anymore — you can see who the current ones are on this page. 😛
