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.

What do you think?

Is #WaddleOn Returning?

Hey everyone! I just noticed that there hasn’t been a new #WaddleOn ever since they put a few small skits in The Spoiler Alert. I contacted the CP support team and this is what they said:

waddleon

Hey penguin pal,

There’s no set schedule for #WaddleOn. They just happen from time to time at random. Is there anything that you would like to see on a new episode?

Waddle on!

Club Penguin Support

Basically, this means the team isn’t planning any new #WaddleOns to be released weekly per se, but monthly, POSSIBLY. The last #WaddleOn was in March with the Muppets, so the team might be using #WaddleOn to spoil some things from now on. If there was one thing I would like to see more of in #WaddleOn, it would be more pookie skits because the CP team actually has an accurate representation of that 😄

Do you think #WaddleOn is coming back? What’s something you would like to see in future #WaddleOns? Comment below!

#WaddleOn Party Meetup!

This is your chance to be in a #WaddleOn party scene – but you have to bring party stuff! Musical instruments, unicycles, mime outfits, you name it. If it’s good for a party, it’s good for this!

When: Friday March 14, 3 PM Penguin Standard Time

Where: Server Kosciuszko, University

Who: YOU!

See you there!

-Club Penguin team

Don’t forget that Friday is also pi day (as in the number)! We celebrated today at school because I have a math test tomorrow :p

#WaddleOn Episode 27: Biker Bunnies and Motor Bugs

This is a message from the official CP blog:

Biker Bunnies and Motor Bugs roll into #WaddleOn episode 27 in the largest cast of players ever assembled for the show! Were you there?

Waddle on,

-Club Penguin Team

I wasn’t there but I saw my buddy Waddles26813 in it! She has now made it in two videos: Spoiler Alert (Megg Takeover) and this WaddleOn! WOO HOO!

#WaddleOn Wants YOU!

Here’s a chance to not just BE in an episode of #WaddleOn, but help tell the story too!

First, dress as a BUNNY with a motorcycle, or a BUG with a motorcycle.

ANY kind of bunny or bug will do – use your imagination!

Then show up in the STADIUM on Thursday February 20 at 4 PM PST.  (If you don’t remember what Penguin Standard Time is, you can check the Clock Tower at the Snow Forts.)

See you there!

-Club Penguin Team

Thanks Polo! I will try to come. On another side note, I am SUPER busy today and I can’t blog much until later :/

#WaddleOn – Episode 24 – Behind the Scenes!

Take a behind-the-scenes tour of #WaddleOn — maybe you’re in it!

OMG I thought FOR SURE I was going to be in this episode as I was in one of the tours earlier. I swear I saw those penguins! I WAS THERE! This is so unfair! 😥
As I quote Sebastian from The Little Mermaid: This concert was to be the pinnacle of my distinguished career!
