A Lifetime of Headers, Part II

Hey Poptropicans! Slanted Fish here.

As we celebrate the PHB’s upcoming 9-year anniversary with the Poppies this month, I thought it’d be interesting to look back on how far we’ve come in a visual way: our lifetime of site headers.

About 8 years ago, then-PHB “graphics guy” Codien released a post reminiscing all the headers that had gone up on the PHB over the life of the blog, many of them designed by himself. He has since moved on to other things, but the PHB has continued his practice of adorning the top of the site with a graphic that tells who we are.

This post is here to commemorate the many designs we’ve had since his post, and as it’s been 8 years, there are many! Most were designed by me, with some graphic assets from Poptropica mixed into most. Other contributors have also been credited on their respective headers. Hover over each image for captions, click to see in full-size, and enjoy!

Well, there you have it! PHB’s headers from 2009 onwards. Don’t forget to catch Part I here, which in addition to Codien’s brilliant designs, includes my awkward attempts at a header from when I first created the blog in 2008.

How many of them were you around to see? Which ones did you like most? Do you feel like the designs have improved over the years? (I personally do.) Share your thoughts and feedback in the comments!

Thanks for sticking with the PHB. Here’s to many more years.

Keep on popping,

Always wanted a beard?

Sponsored by the PHB

Styling of hair has been a big thing in Poptropica for the past years. But as of yet the creation of a beard has not been a hit. Whether it’s that pre-pubescent children just cant manage to sprout a few hairs on their chin, or 8 – 15 year olds can’t even get the option to customize those golden bearded curls.

This will all change due to the new product by Codien called ‘Spray on Beard’. A beard in a can, how remarkable, just point cans nozzle towards ones desired area and press down firmly. Instant beard.
A quality product tested by profound scientists, they all agree  it’s safe to use.

Here’s what a random tester thought, “The perfect thing i need for my Poptropican. It’s Great”.

Codien is giving you the chance to get a beard just in time for Christmas. Only 30 45 will get one so head over to his blog now to enter. Hurry, the competition ends on Friday, December 11th!

Good Luck!

A Lifetime of Headers

Dear viewers of the PHB,

Over the lifespan of the PHB I have designed headers for special occasions to lift the mood on the internet.

My style has changed, the quality has improved, and finally all my headers can be showcased on display at my DeviantART Page.

Were you here to see all of them?

Sneak Peeks, Website Updates

Boo Updates

Hello all, it’s been too long. For everyone new that does not know me i’m Codien the graphics guy here at the PHB.
I’ve been having exams and too much work to focus on this site, but don’t worry i’m off school in only 2 more days, then you will have me all to yourselves for as long as you want. Just don’t kill me.

_

First update i would like to announce is the new Poptropica Help Blog header. This was created lovingly by me in memory of my old headers 😦 [Read what happened at my blog]. I hope you all like it. Give me feedback and tell me what i could add or improve. I WUV BLUE! ❤

Over at the PCB they posted a new post about the Boo costume, obtained at the advertisement; ‘Monsters Inc’. I’m sure all of you guys already knew this and are already scaring monsters with your cute smile and costume. “Mike Wasalski!”

A third thing to add to this small yet charming post is a small secret brewing in the Poptropica underground world. The creators are busily making a new thing that not even i can talk about!
All i can say is it involves a profile and a ranking system and different options of what food you like, favorite color, how many games you’ve won, and thats pretty much everything there doing.

But don’t panic! BOO! They are going to release Reality TV island soon. All will they. *scary music play*

The Secret Site of Codien!

Hijuyo: Don’t forget to check out issue #4 of the Poptropican’s 911 here, and view the poll results here! And now a message from the awesome Codien–

Well howdy folks!

It has been a while since i’ve posted. Mostly because i have been busy with exams and such. Oh did i mention it was was my 16th birthday awhile ago. 😀 Yes i do realise I’m older then all of you. MUHAHAHAHA!

Seeing that there’s nothing new in Poptropica yet, i will post something unrelated. Not about some random game, No! Something a bit more, Secret!

Yes, there is a secret site-more of a blog- that is a personal blog by Codien. But can you find it?
Well it should be simple to find. Many people have found it already and i’m shocked at how many views i get daily!

My blog has the latest news about me. Also, it is still in development but, i will be posting about awesome online games and console games, new movies, books, the latest and greatest things i think worth posting, ART! Lots of Art! And i will be updating everyone on my around the world trip that will take off in a week!

“Track it down, look under rocks, jump over prison walls, take the bucket from your head and find my site (BLOG)!”

 

Seeing that a couple of people (Looking at you two :P) told everyone, and for those who still can’t find it, i will post it. It really is simple…
