Club Penguin Wants YOUR Art!

That’s right penguins! Polo Field announced that in honor of CP’s 9th anniversary, they want to use your fanart in their tribute video. You can only submit this weekend, so make sure to get out your supplies and draw away! The task is to draw your favorite memories of Club Penguin.

I might make a penguin or two to submit πŸ˜€

UPDATE: I made a custom penguin to submit. It took me a LOOONG time! Maybe CP will choose it…

Club Penguin Builds 7 Schools with Free the Children!

This is a post from Polo Field.
Hey Penguins!
Last year, 11 of our Club Penguin team members helped raise funds to build schools with Free the Children. Together they helped build schools in Ghana, Ecuador, Haiti, India, Kenya, Nicaragua, and Sierra Leone — how amazing is that?!
Here are a few of our amazing volunteers:

What are you doing to help others in your community?Β

Currently, I’m actually working on a project for Girl Scouts! I’m working with my school library to help build a special education resources section on for the whole community. Also, congrats to the awesome mods for helping out!

Megg’s School and Skate Party Sneak Peek!

Megg uploaded this awesome video to YouTube about her adventures at the School and Skate party!

A few notes:

  • The mall is totally awesome. I don’t know about you, but the mall I go to is lots of fun! Glad they could capture that in CP πŸ˜‰
  • SHE HINTED AT A CLUB PENGUIN MOVIE ZOMGGGGGG
  • Always read books. Especially when you have to read one for school and you have to finish half of it in two days… haha not like I have to do that instead of blogging

What do you think? Club Penguin movie yay or nay?

Featured Igloos are BACK!

Hey everyone! Remember back in the old days of Club Penguin when they used to do featured igloos? Fantastic news! Featured igloos are back and here to stay! This was personally one of my favorite things about old CP πŸ˜€ Read what Megg had to say:

Exciting news for all you pro igloo decorators!
Featured igloos are back! Once a month, we’ll be giving a shout out to an igloo we think is simply marvelous. Woohoo!
Our first featured igloo is from Gigigirl14. I was very impressed with her use of space in this igloo. And it actually reminded me of a school I went to — great job Gigigirl14 πŸ˜€

I’ll be wandering around the island randomly to scout out more great designs. If you’d like to be featured, all you have to do is decorate your igloo!
Waddle on,

Great job Gigigirl14! Love those pink sofas! Remember, I also update my igloos page from time to time, so check it out and see if YOU’RE on there πŸ˜‰

Mod Monday- September 15th

Okay, so I don’t know if this was announced on the CP blog or not, but there was a small Mod Monday today! The moderators Shrub Shrub, Grand Stand, Cool Times, and Rootin Tootin were all on (at least when I was on). I tried to record but my laptop glitched and it didn’t save the video -_- Anyways, all the moderators didn’t confirm anything about next month’s party, but Grand Stand DID say something about looking in the newspaper πŸ˜‰ We sipped tea with Cool Times and Shrub Shrub, and Rootin Tootin sent out postcards. I got not one, but TWO postcards from Rootin Tootin! Thanks so much Rootin πŸ˜€ We also tried to guess Grand Stand’s favorite planet. I guessed Gallifrey (hehehe) but as that probably won’t go through the filters, I said “the planet the Doctor is from!” and much to my shock, Grand Stand replied “Not where the Doctor is from, but good guess!” The fact that she even knew what I was talking about made my day about 500% better.

I hope one day theseΒ all the moderators find this post, and know that they do their job to the fullest and help make kids happier every day. Thanks so much for being who you are. In the wise words of Nerdfighteria, don’t forget to be awesome.

Is Club Penguin Slowly Meeting Their End?

Based off of this post by the lovely Trainman1405.

In the last two or three months, the CP community has been slowly breaking down with problems. In my opinion there are two sides to the problem: hacking and Disney.

I’m going to try really hard to make this sound like a valid debate and not like a rant, so bear with me.

For hacking, we can all tell that Club Penguin has obviously not been on top of their game with patching all the item adders and loopholes. I have no idea how easy/hard it is to recode the website to not be hacked, but keep in mind that if they don’t patch everything, staff’s and paying member’s personal information could be at risk of being found. It sounds a bit dramatic, considering I have trusted Disney with that kind of stuff, but it’s totally possible.

Disney, Disney, Disney… where do I begin? To start, I’m going to list all the good things Disney has done to help CP:

  • Bought CP and basically kept them in business from 2009-present
  • Gave them new ways to improve their game (awesome graphics don’t make themselves!)
  • Shut down their other virtual worlds THAT WERE STILL MAKING MONEY to keep CP
  • Hired new employees and interns (job opportunities!)
  • Made CP available internationally in different languages

On the other hand, Disney has made CP into their own little ad world, but you have to understand that that’s wise marketing. If you don’t like all the takeover parties, you have to take a step back and look at the big picture. You see, Club Penguin is an international online world that appeals to kids, right? Wouldn’t it be wise to take their biggest, most precious online world and actively promote it for multiple things? It’s like saying “I have parties every weekend at my house, everyone’s invited!” and then using that as an opportunity to be known for being so popular and having so many friends (does this only make sense to me?). Well, that’s what Disney is doing, but they’re taking it as a chance to make more money. You have to understand, Disney isn’t what it used to be. They’re now one of the biggest, richest companies in the world and there are people out there trying to stop Disney from basically conquering the world (which I’m sure Walt Disney didn’t really want…). They’re always looking for ways to make more money, whether it’s building more hotels on their property, making new shows, etc. Maybe CP isn’t their main focus right now, and we might have to deal with it.
