The Monster Competition

Credits to Codien for tracking down the guy with them.
Credits to the guy that gave me the 4 different outfits. I’m sorry – I can’t remember your name. Is it Bwobby Dobby?

So, what are these outfits? To keep it simple and straight:

The PHB is giving away 20 special Monster Outfits.

All you have to do is send your name to this address:

Creator’s Indentity Revealed: Jess M. Brallier

One of PHB’s readers, Oumer26, was so helpful as to do some Poptropica research and has been sending poptropicahelpblog@gmail.com, the blog’s E-mail address, updates on his findings so far. Recently, he has made a huge breakthrough: he discovered someone named Jess M. Brallier, who is one of Poptropica’s Creators! Thanks, Oumer!

Jess M. Brallier is the publisher, Family Education Network, developer of Poptropica. For proof, visit this website:
http://fun.familyeducation.com/page/61557.html

Also, take a look at this site that Oumer found, which talks about Mr. Brallier:
http://www.ourwhitehouse.org/contribbios/brailler.html

By the way, if you have some of Jeff Kinney’s (creator of Poptropica) bestselling books, the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, you may have noticed that Jess Brallier is mentioned in the Acknowledgments at the back. Here are 2 examples:

Diary of a Wimpy Kid
“… Jess Brallier, who understands the power and potential of online publishing, and helped Greg Heffley reach the masses for the first time. Thanks especially for your friendship and mentorship. …”

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules
“… Thanks to Jess Brallier for bringing Greg Heffley to the world on Funbrain.com. …”

Because we know Jeff Kinney is also a Poptropica Creator, his book is on Funbrain.com, Poptropica (the game he created) is also on Funbrain.com, and now we know that Jess B. helped put Diary of a Wimpy Kid on Funbrain, it’s quite likely that Jess M. Brallier is a real Poptropica Creator too!

Note: Unfortunately, we could not find a way to contact Jess. If you do know, however, feel free to let us know!

Jordan Leary is not strange!

As mentioned by Shiny Leaf, here is another Astro-Knights bonus sneak peek from the Creators! To be more specific, it’s Comic Kid on his adventures again… looks like he has pulled another strange emote! Maybe we’ll be able to get to use it someday? Anyway:

Blog Post Title: Stranger and Stranger
Description: My adventures have taken me to even stranger places lately. I recently came across some very odd creatures in glass containers. I was glad to leave the place!
Image URL: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_q9BePaDQLzI/SaMf9I2PzGI/AAAAAAAAAC8/i1yFJVjcJKU/s1600-h/science.jpg
Image Name: science.jpg

“Science” is the name of this picture, so this could be a science laboratory. Those containers could be aliens from outer space… or are they just jellyfish? o_O

Another big discovery about the Poptropica Creators! And no, this one isn’t from the strange place Comic Kid just visited. Let’s give it up for Quick Flame, who tracked down yet another Creator:

I found a Jordan Leary who works for Poptropica for editing or something, he has a website too, I think it’s jordanleary.com or something.

Jordan Leary is another Poptropica Creator – and there’s proof on his website. Stalkers, here’s the details you need:

Website: http://jordanleary.com/
Job:
Flash game developer at Pearson Education, Inc. He’s currently working on Poptropica, he says. Jordan is primarily responsible for the front-end programming, animation, and visual effects.
E-mail address: jordan@jordanleary.com

For some evidence that he is a Creator, check out his website. On the right side of the main page, it says he works for Poptropica. Then click on “Interactive” on Mr. Leary’s site. It will bring up some images that he has apparently worked on, and the very first one listed should show 2 Poptropicans together on Early Poptropica Island! Cool… :mrgreen:

That’s all for today, but remember to read up on the posts below! 😉

Our first half-million, Jeff Kinney, and Shining Crystals!

Yes!! Poptropica Help Blog has reached 500,000 hits – that’s half of a million! 😯

Special First Posts!:
Scary Tomato’s first post (joined July 26, 2008.)
Smockers’s first post (joined October 6, 2008.)
Codien’s first post (joined October 20, 2008.)

The PHB was created on July 26, 2008. Today is February 17, 2009. That means it took only around 6 months, 3 weeks, and a day! That was quick! 😀

To celebrate with a bit of confetti, check out this funny website:
http://producten.hema.nl/

The language written there is Dutch, but don’t worry, you don’t need to know Dutch to watch the cool video there! Oh, and turn on the volume for extra effects, too! 😛

Or…

Let’s add some milk to that, too! Cheers! :mrgreen:

Many of you might know Jeff Kinney. In case you don’t, he’s the author of the bestselling series, Diary of a Wimpy Kid! If you want to read Diary of a Wimpy Kid, you can see it online for free on Funbrain: http://www.funbrain.com/journal/Journal.html?ThisJournalDay=1&ThisPage=1.

Anyway, Grey Flame recently discovered on Jeff’s website that Jeff Kinney himself is one of Poptropica’s Creators! Thanks for sharing, Grey Flame!

For proof, visit Mr. Kinney’s website at: http://wimpykid.com/

Click on “Author Interview” at the left side. Under the second Q-and-A that shows up, click on “Next”. On the next page find where it says “Q: Are you a full time writer?” A:, the answer, says: “No. I work full-time as a virtual world designer, and I created Poptropica.com. I’m also a full-time dad, so things are very busy for me right now!”

The big news is, there’s now another known way to contact the Poptropica Creators! On Mr. Kinney’s website, click on “Contact” at the left. At the top, it says:

Jeff Kinney
wimpykid@comcast.net

Please note: Because of the amount of E-mail Jeff receives, it’s not possible for him to respond quickly. It might take a few months for Jeff to get your E-mail.

We might be able to ask Jeff Kinney about Poptropica questions by sending E-mails to him! However, as the note says on his website, it might take quite a while before he replies (if he even does at all!).

If any of you send him an E-mail, and he replies, tell us about it! You can forward it to us at poptropicahelpblog@gmail.com. If it’s really interesting we can share it with everyone else on Poptropica Help Blog, and give you credit, of course!

Anyone here like pink? Then this next Astro-Knights sneak peek is for you!

Thanks Zany Moon for the alert. Adorned all over this image we see are a many shiny pink crystals. Here’s the picture and information:

Blog Post Title: Far Far Far Away
Description: I’ve found some really unique places within the vast world of Poptropica. This place was really special with its many glistening and glowing pink crystals. I couldn’t help but pick one up and examine its beauty.
Image URL: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_q9BePaDQLzI/SZmP51ndHoI/AAAAAAAAAC0/Gx0istNg42c/s1600-h/crystals.jpg

Maybe we’ll get to hold these crystals on Astro-Knights, since that’s what Comic Kid is doing in the picture! 😉
