[Insert quirky pun to trick all Poptropicans here.]
(post written by Hijuyo; trick by Codien)
If you know your PHB history, you know that the founder, Hijuyo, used to be known as Scary Tomato, whose Poptropican was pictured in its very first blog header (shown above for your reference), back when ST/Hijuyo’s graphics weren’t all that great.
A few months later, along came Codien. He became the third author to join the team, after Smockers, and began sprucing up the place by creating amazing graphics for the site and even renaming it from ‘Scary Tomato’s Weblog’ to ‘Poptropica Help Blog’ – what we still know it as today.
And although he left the team, Codien’s missed us and is back to posting and being the awesome graphics guy – that part is not a joke! Coming back just in time for April Fool’s Day 2011, he quickly came up with the idea of triggering back some old memories as part of the prank – by putting the very first header up and once again changing the site name to Scary Tomato’s Weblog!
We hope it made you smile, but rest assured, we’re back to being the Poptropica Help Blog, and with Codien back on the team, our next header is definitely going to awe everyone. 🙂
Happy April Fool’s Day!
-‘Scary Tomato’ and Codien
*note: Since the PHB prefers to maintain a limit of 7 staff members and Smockers hasn’t been posting for almost a year despite attempts to contact him, we have removed him from the staff list. We are saddened to do this, but it is extremely unlikely he would have continued posting anyway. Farewell, Smockers, you will be remembered. :,)
