The Four Glitches of the A-Pop-calypse 💥👾

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Dangerous Dragon. Enjoy!

Hi Poptropicans, DD here. For quite some time now while playing Poptropica, I’ve been encountering some glitches like these. Have you?

De-coded: There’s a glitch in the system.

1. Really laggy friends page

Have you noticed that the friends page takes a really long time to load, especially when you’re inviting your friends to the common room? After it has loaded, it also takes quite a bit of time to show people’s avatars in the blue circles.

2. Glitchy clubhouse

If you’re a person like me who likes to get as much stuff as possible into the clubhouse inventory, you might have encountered this. If you get an idea one day to redesign your clubhouse, you might find that your inventory is all messed up. Sometimes my items disappear, they don’t load, sometimes items overlay other items. Sometimes it just freezes on the spot.

3. Character page can’t reset

I figure this one probably happens to everyone. Ever try on a new costume? Before, when you were customising from the new costume and didn’t like part of it, you could just simply press the cross button to cancel the whole operation.

Now in the new character menu, when you wear something and take it off, the part doesn’t come back. Not even the reset button works. It’s just bad. I don’t understand why the creators had to change it. Before, in your inventory, you could just keep your cursor on the arrow and it would move by itself. Now you gotta keep clicking.

4. C’mon! Fix the black screen already

Seems like everyone experienced this: the black, black screen of death where the game doesn’t load and gets stuck for one whole day. This has been going on for a long time! I hope the creators fix this ASAP.

So these are the main issues that keep occurring — Poptropica’s four horsemen of the apocalypse, if you will. Now to end on a brighter note, here are a couple suggestions I have for features I’d like to see in-game:

  1. Friend requests via message tab: If you’ve ever got two or more requests from people who want to friend you, you have to reload the page many times as you can only accept one by one. Instead of this, it would be great if we could get a message for each potential friend that we could scroll through. It could say something like: “Would You Like To Be Friends? Accept/Deny.”
  2. Features from the old friend page: I have not seen the old friends page, but I have learnt about it through old posts and videos. Pop Quizzes, Tribes, Mood, Island Medallions, Album Photos and much more — it would be awesome to have those back.

That’s it for today!

Thanks and Keep Poppin,

DD 💜

POP it in the oven and bake it off 🎂

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Dangerous DragonEnjoy!

Hi Poptropicans, DD here with the new Pop advertisement! It’s for an upcoming Disney reality TV show called Magic Bake-Off. Head there through the map or the ad building.

Once you enter, you’ll be paired up with a team to bake a cake, facing off against another team. There are two rounds.

Let’s get baking! The instructions for round one will pop-up. Follow the steps, and soon the cake will be ready to bake in the oven.

Then comes the second round. Again, follow the instructions, and your cake will be done and decorated. That’s your cake!

For your efforts, you’ll win two prizes, a Sprinkles Cannon and Icing Blaster. Here’s me modeling the giant sprinkle gun.

That’s the end! I wonder… is this the real recipe they use in the Disney show? That’s it for today, now you try it!

Keep Poppin,

DD 💜

Hare-y Poptropica Worlds House Tour: Invisible Ring 🥕

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Invisible RingEnjoy!

Hey guys. Just chillin’ against this wall here. This is it. Looks like I made it to the final zone of my Worlds clubhouse: the most mysterious, spookiest, and unpredictable zone that’s been giving me the chills since the beginning. I’ll try to keep it cool as best I can, but on the inside, I’m really freakin’ out. But I guess the only way to face this fear and kill the suspense is to open that door, so here goes nothing…

INVISIBLE RING: Oh no… It’s an invasion! There’s an army of robots in my room! …That’s it, I’m outta here! I shouldn’t have come! …wait a minute, how did all of these robots even get here?

ROBOTS: Scanning… Facial recognition confirmed. Welcome, Invisible Ring. We are at your command.

RING: O-kaay…. What’s going on here?

Robots: Scanners indicate that Invisible Ring does not recognize us. Elapsed time since Invisible Ring’s last visit in this room is three years. Humans are subject to all-but-core memory loss within this time span. Let us refresh your memory and show you around, Invisible Ring.

RING: Ok. Thanks, robots!

RING: Hey… Nice game room! Is this where you hung out all this time I was gone?

ROBOTS: Affirmative. Entertainment levels here are pleasantly high. We could stay in here forever if we wanted to… Do you want to play Space Complainers?

RING: If it’s all the same to you, I think I would rather continue the tour.

RING: Whoa! What is THIS called?

ROBOTS: The hotline center, where we make our most urgent calls. …Hello? Pizza to go?

RING: You’ve been ordering pizzas all this time while I was gone?! How in the world are you paying for them all?!

ROBOTS: We aren’t! The delivery rule is 30 minutes or it’s free. And they never get the pizzas here within 30 minutes!

RING: Ah, that makes sense.

RING: Looks like the kitchen is over here. Wow, that is a LOT of carrots. Is that all we have to eat? No wonder you bunny droids order pizzas all the time.

ROBOT: Quick! Take cover!

RING: What’s going on? …and what are you doing? 

ROBOT: Preparing for the battle over on the right. …Take that, Dr. Hare!

RING: A battle? That doesn’t look like a fight, that just looks like a couple of bunnies jumping on the bed over there! …Ooh! That gives me a great idea! Time to hit those drums!

ROBOT: Good thinking. Sound the alarm to attack the carrot fort!

Sound the alarm and attack the carrot fort? …Weird imagination. I guess three years of goofing off in a clubhouse will do that. 

It’s drummin’ time! A-one, two, three, four, 

Two bunny robots jumping on the bed! One’s about to land on the other’s head!

I am not the doctor, but here’s what I said: No more rab-bots jumping on the bed!

ROBOTS: “Get to the root of the sit-uation, and find Dr. Hare’s top-secret sta-tion…

You gotta find the card keys and all the carrots, to save the good ol’ island of 24 Carrot—”

RING: Ok, where is THAT music coming from?

ROBOTS: Scanning… Rabbit Robots located in the upper hallway.

RING: Oh, yeah… They must have found the musical section in there. I didn’t know the robots liked music! 

ROBOTS: The instruments were an exquisite touch. Your decorating skills have amazed us all. We all rate every one of your clubhouse tours as a 100% success!

RING: Wow! I’m glad you feel that way because I was just thinking the same thing! …Wait, how did you know about my other clubhouse tours? …Oh yeah, you guys have a computer in the arcade room!

ROBOTS:  I detect that a lightbulb has lit inside your tiny head. Could that mean you are now up to something? 

RING: You know it. 

ROBOTS: Does this mean you will add more stuff to the PHB?

RING: Maybe… or maybe I’ll get back to arts and crafts and movie-making. I think I’ll stay here and make a plan on what to do next.

ROBOTS: You picked an exceptional place. This is just the kind of workshop that Dr. Hare had!

RING: Interesting… I guess this makes me the next evil genius at work here, huh? WHO’S BAD! Ha-ha, just kidding! …Well, great talk, but I gotta end the tour and get to work on my—

ROBOTS: “Find a crazy rabbit like Dr. Hare, but we gotta warn you that ya better beware!

He’s the funniest villain we’ve ever had, but if you just ain’t careful, he’s GONNA BE MAD…”

RING: UGH… Will someone please make those musicians STOP? I can’t focus like this!

ROBOTS: With pleasure! They are beginning to annoy all of us! 

RING: On second thought, how about one last song? Y’know, to wrap things up?

ROBOTS: You heard her, rabbots! A-one, two, three-

“For the last song that we’re gonna sing,
Let’s give three cheers for Invisible Ring!
All 7 of her clubhouse tours complete,
They’re exciting and amazing to the edge of your seat!
Thanks for joining’ ‘em all, and we hope you had fun, 
But our scanners say that it’s just begun! 
If you have a comment, don’t forget to send!
Just let us know what you think! THE END!”

…Well done, Rabbots! Thank you everybody and good night!

Hope this ends my clubhouse saga on a good note. I think it does, both figuratively AND literally!

Hope you enjoyed this guest post by Invisible Ring. If you did, you might also enjoy the rest of her clubhouse tour collection: from Poptropica Original, her regular, CastleParty, and Dreamy rooms; and from Poptropica Worlds, her Adventurous and Summer rooms, which led to the Hare-y home you just saw. Consider sharing yours, too!

Fanfic: The Princess and the Raven, part 3 👸🐦 

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Shy Scorpion. Enjoy!

Hello! Shy Scorpion here with another section of my fanfiction (catch up on part 1 here and part 2 here). Sorry it took so long, hope you like it!

“The Princess and the Raven”

Continuing from the last scene: An examination room in Dr. Snow White’s veterinary clinic. Dr. Snow White is holding a clipboard and a pen, while Ringmaster Raven sits in a chair and clasps his hands together tightly.  


So Mr. Raven, how long have you had this problem with your chicken personality? 


Ever since the CLUCK episode that got me sent to prison in the first place. But as you have probably noticed, I have recovered greatly. 


Yes, I was wondering about that, how did you manage to escape hypnotism? 


(hesitates) Actually, I was never hypnotised.


(freezes) Wait, what? 


(sighs) Okay, that came out wrong, I was hypnotised for a little bit but eventually it just faded, I finally realized I wanted to be done with crime and trying to be accepted, so I just pretended to be crazy.


Does anyone else know? 




(regains composure) Well, um, alright, is there anything else you want to talk about? 


No, not really. 


Ok, well you seem fine mentally, all I really wanted to know about is how you are feeling. 


I feel fine. 


Then feel free to go, have a nice day!  

Raven gets up and opens the door when Snow White tells him to wait. 


Raven, I, well, want to get to know you better so maybe we can meet at 1:00 p.m. at Ye Olde Roastery Co. tomorrow? 


(pauses, then smiles a little) Actually, uh, that would be great. 


(smiles) It’s a date!

So I hope you liked it! Any ideas as to what Snow White and Ringmaster Raven should talk about??? Tell me in the comments.

Also, I wanted to give a shout-out to Barefoot Knuckle for more of their AMAZING artwork, as seen in July’s Community Creations

“Most Likely to Succeed” by Barefoot Knuckle

That’s it for now, catch you next time Poptropicans!

Hope you enjoyed this guest post by Shy Scorpion. If you did, you might also enjoy Barefoot Knuckle’s post which inspired this one!

Pop 5: Ways to Earn Credits on Poptropica 🤑

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Dangerous Dragon. Enjoy!

Hi Poptropicans! DD here with some poptastic suggestions on how to earn credits. A recent PHB post by Giant Dragon highlighted how the creators shouldn’t have removed credit rewards when you complete islands. But we want those credits, and there are ways to get them…

I mean, chill, Amelia! And the Baron too. Why are their costumes so costly? Now one thing I know is that we can’t change their prices, but we can earn more credits! In this post, I’ll give you tips to help you earn 1,000 credits in 15 minutes — and more.

1. Daily Login Rewards

Now this doesn’t get you many credits, but we’re here to cover all the bases, including this one. Just login to Poptropica (Haxe) to earn credits every day! You get more if you can keep up a streak of daily logins.

2. Spin Wheel on the Poptropica App

For those of you who have a tablet or smartphone, you’re in luck! Download the Poptropica mobile app and you can spin the wheel on Home Island every day to get credits. Sometimes, if you’re really lucky and land on the “Grand Prize,” you can even win costumes!

3. Playing Arcade Games

This method also only gives few credits, but it’s a start. Head to the arcade to play the mini-games like Poptastic for an inkling of credits per game. Also, check out the PHB’s Mini-Game Guides for tips on every single-player and head-to-head game. If you practice a lot, you can get the all-time high score too!

4. The Baron’s Plane Mini-Game

When the Baron’s airship is in town, play the “Clear the Skies” mini-game with the monkey aboard her plane. You can win 50 credits for each successful playthrough and keep replaying it to rack up more credits!

5. Movie Theater on the Poptropica App

This is the big one: it can give tons of credits! How? Head to the movie theater in the Poptropica mobile app. For me, the videos don’t load; only the red cross in the corner does. I click it and I receive one credit. You can spam-click and get many credits this way. Just a matter of patience.

The next time you open Poptropica (Haxe) on the computer, you’ll get all the credits transferred to the online version of the game.

That’s it for today! Perhaps there will be more ways to earn credits in the future (like with new side-quests), but in the meantime, try these tricks. Thanks for reading!

Keep Poppin,
DD 💜
