Poptropica Pop Quizzes: Updated

Everyone knows about the Pop Quiz feature in Poptropica.  You answer a question, it gets added to your profile, and you have one question a day… or at least you did until you ran out of questions.  And then you just sat there, waiting for your daily question, but no new questions were added.  That is, no new questions were added until the Creators updated them recently

Finally, a pop quiz you’ll enjoy

We’ve recently added dozens of new pop quizzes to Poptropica Friends. Now, you can share with the world even more of your unique personality — and learn more about your friends, too.

Taking pop quizzes is easy. Just log into your Poptropica account every day for a new quiz, and check out the “recent activity” tab to see what your friends have been up to.

I never knew that Captain Crawfish can climb trees! How do you do that with a peg leg? Very slowly, I guess.

All I can say is that it took the Creators long enough to add some more questions.

In the Famous Words of Captain Crawfish, “Whoa, Nelly!”

Awhile ago, Captain Crawfish said “whoa, nelly” to something that wasn’t that amazing.  Well, here’s something that actually is deserving in the “whoa, nelly” department.

Trapped in the closet?

We can admit that we’re not perfect. One thing Poptropica is missing right now is an easy way to save the best costumes that you’ve put together. With Poptropica Friends, that will no longer be the case!

Another new feature with Poptropica Friends is the Costume Closet, which allows Members to store up to 30 unique costumes at a time. Not only that, but you can look through your friends’ closets and borrow their best costume ideas, as well.

There you have it! The days of putting together a spectacular costume and then having to get rid of it are almost over.

So confused.  In the first part of the post, Captain Crawfish makes it sound like everyone gets the costume closet, but then, toward the end of the post, he makes it sound like only Members get it.  Someone help me figure it out!

 

Every Moment, of Every Day, Forever…

… They will all watch you. THERE’S A 24-HOUR CAMERA TRAILING YOU. D: Watching your every move, slowly clicking away in the corner, and letting the whole world of Poptropica see what you did. Or what you didn’t do. Either way, it knows.

Your number 1 album

One of the new features that will be coming with Poptropica Friends is the photo album. It’s like your own virtual scrapbook of your adventures through Poptropica!
By playing through Islands, you’ll occasionally see a message that says “New Photo Added” when you get to an important part of the story. Then, when you visit your photo album, you’ll see snapshots showing you a new perspective of your character’s feats. Every Island has about four different photos. There are over 100 in total!
Even better: every time you earn a new photo, the outfit you were wearing at the time is recorded in the picture. Even if you change clothes, you can costumize from your photos later!
Wait, there’s more! If you’re looking through a friend’s photo album, you can costumize off of them, too. It’s like the number of possible costumes just went to infinity!

😮 Do you see that? They’ll ALL be able to see what you did do. Or what you didn’t do. Which is worse? If you get an embarrassing picture in an island, or if you don’t have any pictures because you didn’t finish an island?

Wow, Creators, As If We Didn’t Know That Already…

So, once again, the Creators did a post about something that we already knew about.  Okay, so yeah, I hope you do already know about this after I just said that.

Seismic activity

You already know that Poptropica Friends will let you stay informed about what your friends are doing in Poptropica. What you might not know is how easy that’s going to be!

Presenting the Recent Activity feed! You’ll see this little box whenever you return to Poptropica, and it will show you the most up-to-date things your friends have been doing in Poptropica. You’ll see when your friend has earned a photo, beaten an Island, saved a new costume, or answered a Pop Quiz. You can click through to see their full profile, or just flip through the feed to see what everyone is up to.

There’s a lot more coming with Poptropica Friends. We’re looking forward to sharing it with you!

If you didn’t know that, well…you’re not in the dark anymore.  So I guess since the Creators might have helped them, I can’t really say that they don’t ever help.  I’ll just say that they possibly don’t ever help.

 

 

Showing Off Something That Ain’t That Amazing

Yeah, so somehow Captain Crawfish thinks that beating all the islands is a huge accomplishment, when most people I know have beat all the islands.  Whatever, Captain Crawfish, keep dreaming.

Going for the gold

Playing through an Island on Poptropica gets you many rewards. Besides the satisfaction of a job well done, you’ll also earn a gold medallion that you can wear to show off your accomplishment. But how many of you have been able to pull this off?

Medallions for every Island! Whoa, nelly. That’s worth bragging about. Soon it’ll be easier to show off an achievement like this.

One of the great things about Poptropica Friends is that you’ll be able to see what medallions your friends have earned, and they’ll be able to see the same for you. You’ll even be able to show off how many times you’ve beaten each Island, by using Island Restart.

Poptropica Friends is launching soon. There’s no better time than the present to start adding to your medallion total, before all your friends can see!

Um, just a few things.  First, if you look really closely at the picture under the menu that says “What’s New”, you’ll see that the last big thing that the person did was beat Skullduggery.  Finish the island just for the picture, Captain Crawfish?  If that is your account, that is…

And secondly, hold on.  I forgot what secondly was…  Hold the phone, peeps!

…Oh, okay, I remember now.  Doesn’t that Poptropican look a little familiar?  Like the Poptropican from the post that the Creators did telling that their fail of an April Fool’s joke was actually a joke?

And how about the Poptropican in the post about the three powers that you use in Twisted Thicket Island?

That Poptropican, Friendly Bug, has been in both of those posts.  And now this one.  And Captain Crawfish has done all three of those posts.  Is it just me, or does that seems like more than a coincidence?

Now, excuse me while I’m off to find out more clues for the case of Friendly Bug.

Wait for it…Wait for it…Wait for it…

…Okay, you’ve waited long enough!  The Creators have finally announced what the incredible new feature for Poptropica is.  And let me just say, I was sort of right when I said that it might be something like Facebook.

Announcing Poptropica Friends!

We’re thrilled to announce a new feature that’s coming soon to Poptropica: Friends!

Soon you’ll be able to make friends with the people you meet in Poptropica! You can follow their adventures in the game, and show off your own accomplishments. You’ll create a unique personality profile to share with the world. When you play through Islands, you’ll earn photos that mark your achievements in the game. Members will have access to a costume closet that lets you store as many as 30 individual costumes!

You’ll find all this and more with Poptropica friends. Keep an eye out here for more information, including when you can start using these new features!

Okay, so I now I say all the time that the Creators aren’t that smart, but I think I’m going to have to give them a little credit for this one.  It is pretty cool.  So, and you don’t know how hard it is for me to say this, good job, Creators!

The only thing I don’t like is the Costume Closet being only for members.  Of course, I don’t like anything that’s only for members, so yeah.
