Last night, Perfect Sky published a very important post: The Post of Change. You should really go check it out if you haven’t already, I completely agree with it…
Oh wait, I mean “Call for Change: The PHB is not the only voice!”
Yeah, the entire post was edited by Slanted Fish, most likely. Which kinda ruins the entire purpose of PS’s amazing post: having your own voice. If Fishy just edits everything, she’s taking the true voices away from the authors she hired!
If you’re reading this Fishy, I’m not trying to offend you. I just really think you should stop editing other people’s posts without their permission. Like, seriously.
But anyway, there’s something else I want to discuss in this post. Negative opinions. You see, people are too scared to share their real feelings on anything Pop-related in this community. The PHB for example, every opinion mentioned on it is positive! I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, but it’s kinda obvious that maybe the authors don’t feel that way. Maybe they just don’t want to make anyone upset, or maybe their true opinions just keep getting edited out…okay, I’ll stop with that now.
But like, remember that post where I reacted to those Poptropica teaching guides? With all my sarcastic humor and what not? Well, it was originally going to be a PHB guest post. But it was rejected because it was too negative!
Poptropica is not a perfect game. I’m pretty sure there are so many games that are better than Pop, I just happen to be obsessed with this game out of thousands. Still, Pop could use a lot of improving. Don’t just share what you like about the game, share what you don’t like. What you wish could change. Who knows, maybe the Creators will see your posts and try to fix these flaws.
So from now on, I’m not hiding my true feelings from you. I’m sharing my own voice. Right here on TCPB. Because that’s what blogs are for: sharing your opinions with the world.
The same goes for any of you reading this post. Don’t let other people silence the voice that is yours and yours only. Let’s work together to fix this community, once and for all.
