poppies2017

Hey, Poptropicans, welcome back to the PHB’s 2017 Poppies, where the second part of the Poppies is just commencing: the voting round!

Not sure what the Poppies are? Take a look at this post.

Anyway, the nomination round has ended, so hopefully you had a chance to nominate! If not, don’t despair: the poll for the voting round is now open!

What’s the Voting Round, you ask?

The voting round includes the same categories that were in the nomination round, but this time you’re voting from a smaller pool of options under each category. These options (about 5-7 per category) were the most popular nominations from the first round.

You may also notice a few new categories in this round that weren’t open to nominations in the previous round, due to options already being set. These categories are: Best Adventure Island, Best Common Room Game, Best Tribe Common Room, and Best PHB Author.

The Voting Round closes on Saturday, July 22, so make your voice heard while you can!

We’ll be announcing the winners LIVE at our PHC party next next week, which will be on July 26, the PHB’s birthday. You won’t want to miss it! We’ll keep you posted on more details in the following week. In the meantime…

✨ Vote now for who will win in the 2017 Poppies! ✨

Keep popping in to keep up with Poppies events throughout this month!

Advertisements, Website Updates

Zazzle T’s and More Blog Updates!

Need some new clothes? Now’s the time to update your wardrobe!

Poptropica has created some awesome T-shirts you can buy on Zazzle.com. Thanks for the update, Jake – interested in getting one? Zazzle.com is a website where you can buy real-life merchandise from many companies, and now Poptropica itself has an account there! Check out their online store here: http://www.zazzle.com/poptropica. Here’s a picture of Shark Boy in his “Brief Encounters” shirt!

There’s a lot to choose from: I’m B.A.D., Poptropica Logo, Poptropica Laugh, and many more! Did you buy one? Tell us about it!

Want the Golden Touch?

This Golden Touchlets you turn every Poptropican you want to into gold! Thanks for this update, Mood Claws. It’s similar to the Pink Painter, which you can learn about here:

Both the Creators’ Blog and the Poptropica Help Blog have received a few updates. Let’s start with the Creators’ ones:

The one and only
After a Poptropica Creator finishes their post, it usually ends with, for example, “Posted by Shark Boy at 2:36 PM”. This has now changed to (using the same example): “The one and only Shark Boy at 2:36 PM”. Cool! 🙂

Love it, Like it, Not interested
You can now vote about your reaction of each and every Poptropica Creators’ Blog post! Under where it says, “The one and only…” (details above), there’s a line where it says, “Reactions:”. Next to it are 3 options, each with a box beside it: Love it, Like it, Not interested. Click on the box beside it to vote that option! Currently, you can vote for as many as you want (you can even vote all 3). If you want to take back your vote, simply click on the box again! There is also a number in parentheses beside each option, which shows how many people had voted for that option. 😛

Zazzle Widget
On the side of the Creators’ Blog is their new Zazzle widget! This currently displays some of the T-shirts they are selling, and at the top, written in white with a blue background, are the words, “Poptropica T-shirts and More!” There is also a bright star next to it, and there’s one for the “Blog Archives” section too. It looks a lot nicer that way! 😀

Now for the PHB’s updates!

600,000
Believe it or not, we have already reached 600,000+ hits! Less than a month ago, we’d reached 500,000. Amazing! I’m finding it pretty hard to believe myself, but it really is true! 😯 Check out this post for the 500,000 milestone news: https://poptropica.wordpress.com/2009/02/17/our-first-half-million-jeff-kinney-and-shining-crystals/.

You may have noticed: We have 4 new buttons in one of our widgets on the right side! Let me explain them.
