Copyrighted Costumes

Hey guys. Today I just wanted to make a short, yet crucial, post, regarding the #MyPoptropicaCostume contest.

While a good majority of the entires so far are absolutely amazing, I’ve seen many that are, well, copyright violations. I don’t know why, but the Creators forgot to add the no copyrighted costumes part to the official contest rules this time around. Actually, I think they may have mentioned it, but they didn’t seem to make it clear enough. And if one of these costumes wins, like if a Creator doesn’t know it’s a copy of a franchise that already exists…we are in some big trouble.

The winning design is not like an ad costume. With ads, the companies specifically pay Poptropica to advertise their product so more people buy/watch said product. These companies allow Pop to use their copyrighted stuff, basically.

But if a copyrighted violated costume wins, and the true owner finds out, Pop could possibly get sued. And if Pop gets sued, I have no clue what would happen to the game.

So please, make sure all your entries are original. That’s all I ask of you.

Popular Opinions: The Holiday Spirit

image

I’ve been looking forward to this day. The day after Thanksgiving. They day when the holiday season officially begins. They day when you can actually listen to whatever Christmas music you could possibly want, without getting yelled at, of course.

I love the holidays, and this year will be one of the best as it’s the first year I get to spend them with you guys. So, it’s no surprise what this week’s Popular Opinions question was.

Warning: this may just be the longest Popular Opinions post yet.

Theory Thursdays: The Current Pop’s Fate

theorythursdays

Well…THE SECRET SOCIETY FROM THE GRAPHIC NOVELS IS ILLUMINATI TOO!

“Secret Society” has 13 letters in it. If you remove its digits and multiply them, 1 times 3 equals 3. ILLUMINATI CONFIRMED.

Uh, you know what, this Illuminati stuff most likely isn’t real, and it definitely doesn’t have anything to do about Poptropica; it’s just a coincidence that not one but two mysterious organizations exist in the game’s universe…or is it?

Ok, that’s enough with that for now. I actually have a legit theory today: what will happen to the Current Pop when New Pop releases.

You see, it just can’t stay on the Internet. Games, and most website domains cost money to stay up and running, even without any updates. Heck, what would New Pop’s URL be if Current Pop somehow stayed up as poptropica.com? newpoptropica.com? poptropica.org? POPTROPI.CA? Same thing goes for the app, this time only with the app’s name, not domain or URL.

So, let’s get the easiest, yet most unlikely fate down first. The Creators keep the Current, now Old Pop up, continue paying money for it, and figure out a new domain name for the New Pop that won’t leave little kids all confused.

But what will probably happen is that, well, New Pop isn’t actually on a new website. What if poptropica.com stays the same, but the website itself is all New Pop stuff?

That makes sense, but then there’s the actual islands from the Current/Old Pop. If it does actually get “deleted”, I feel like they will at least remake some of the islands for New Pop. Skinny Moon said that the islands won’t just disappear a few months ago. There’s even some proof that 24 Carrot is being redone again, for said New Pop. Feel free to ask Shaky Skunk for details, as she wrote some theories on it.

However, I don’t think every island will make it to the New Pop. They don’t have the time to remake 57 islands, that’s just insane. The likely candidates for islands that will be “deleted” are the unpopular ones, such as a few of the sponsored ones.

You never know though, maybe the reason that New Pop is taking so long to finish (and there’s a chance it’s delayed) is that they are moving every island to New Pop. So don’t worry about losing your favorite islands just yet.

Lastly, before I end this post, I’d like to wish a happy Thanksgiving to the American readers. And to all of you, I’m so thankful that you take the time to read my blog, and I’m thankful for Poptropica and its amazing community. Have a nice day, everyone. Let’s just say, I’m very, very excited for tomorrow, and you’ll find out why soon.

Poll: What Should My Last Costume Contest Design Be?

image

It’s been over a week since the #MyPoptropicaCostume contest officially began, and it’s still going strong. And yes, I have already entered two outfit ideas.

Thanks for posting them on Twitter for me, Perfect Sky!

Anyways, you can only do a maximum of three entries, and I, having trouble deciding what my grand finale should be, since it’s literally my last chance. That’s why I’m finally doing another poll on TCPB, it’s been long overdue.

All you have to do is look at the ideas I have below, and choose the one you like the best. The poll will close on Sunday, as I hope to get the actual design of the winning option done on Monday, the last day of Thanksgiving break. Choose wisely!

Btw, please don’t steal any of my ideas from the polls, please. Really, don’t.

Again, not too many responses, but hopefully that’ll change. Heck, I may even do Popular Opinions on other servers, too.

Theory Thursdays: Mordred, Binary Bard, and the Illuminati

Just so you know, this is once again another joke I MEAN CONSPIRACY theory, and has a 99% chance of being totally fake. Have a good day. 

Poptropica is hiding a trianglular secret…

image.jpeg

In Astro Knights Island, you may remember that whole Order of Mordred organization. You know, the one where the people were nearly WORSHIPPING the guy.

They were totally CRAZY!

image

Hmm, they remind me of theorists, conspiracy theorists. And the whole fact of there being that society, yup, it’s true.

Mordred/Binary Bard created the Illuminati, well the Poptropica version, folks.

The Order of Mordred matches the Illuminati perfectly: a group of people who realize the government is possibly hiding things and doing bad stuff; believe in the other side of the story; and aliens. And that people who blasted off into outer space are somehow alive. At least, that’s what I think the Illuminati is like, I don’t really research it/believe it, and I only do Poptropica conspiracy theories. I’m not like Steven Universe’s Ronaldo, which is a good thing.

But wait, are Mordred and Binary Bard even the same person? Just look at how different they look!

image.jpeg

All of this must be connected to the Illuminati, it just has too! What, it makes sense now, let me explain…

Mordred, creator of the Poptrican Illuminati, was punished by the government of Arturus and arrested, but he didn’t escape, he was killed by one of the members of his society, some random cyborg poet dude named Binary Bard. Binary Bard pretended to be Mordred, who supposedly escaped into space and got so injured that he had to become half machine. Everyone believed him, everyone…except me. Except you. EXCEPT THE FREAKING ILLUMINATI KIDS.

And just to be sure…

“Mordred” has 7 letters. Turn the 7 upside down, add a slanted line onto the gap, and you got a triangle. A triangle has 3 sides, AND is the symbol of the illuminati. ILLUMINATI CONFIMRED.

“Binary Bard” has 9 letters. 9 divided by 3 equals 3. ILLUMINATI CONFIRMED.

Next week: The Secret Society and the Illuminati…
