Yet again, another new Creators post… They’re really excited about this new island, aren’t they? If only they’d stop giving us hints and release the island… Ah, but we can only dream… And have you noticed the awesome new header? So… Colorful… Anyways… TO THE POST!!! *superhero music plays*

Shuffleboard

Still stuck on this island, I found some people playing a game with small sliding pucks. I don’t think the mime is going to win this one.

Who do you think will win? If I were playing, I’d be rooting for myself. 😛  This looks like an activity for RTV, don’t you agree? If you look closely… Oh look! There’s our RTV friends, the Sunglasses Diva Popstar Girl person, and that cowgirl! RTV is written all over it, huh? *elbows lightly*
Well, since that’s all there is, I’m gonna gallop on outta here! YEE HAW!!! *climbs onto horse and rides away into sunse-CRASH!* I forgot this is a blog…. Not the West… *faints* 😛

We’ll be having a Cool Contest once we get 10,000 Hits! Three Accounts with beards will be awarded,so keep on Hitting us (Yes,this is the What Happened to my Face Contest).  We’ll try to get some credits on it as well.

Yet again another update

Shark Boy posted some more information about memberships in this post:

More on Membership

We will be adding membership to Poptropica really soon! Membership will let you use ALL Costumes and Gold Cards in the Poptropica Store for the duration of your membership. And yes, members also get exclusive EARLY ISLAND ACCESS to play our newest islands weeks before the rest of the world!! This is key, since we are planning on releasing some pretty sweet islands this year!

Remember, even if you don’t have credits or membership, the Poptropica Islands are always 100% FREE for all to play!

Well at least the game will still remain free. So with all this new info will you be getting one? And also as you see, they mention that they will be releasing some sweet islands this year. So what is in store? Possibly RTV Island and Mythology Island but what else?

Update

Hi there, Abram again. The Creator’s have updates their post to show the prices of these memberships.

Monthly

$2.99

 

3-Monthly

$7.99

 

6-Monthly

$12.99

More Membership Details:

  • Members are free to use all costumes and gold cards in the Poptropica Store during membership. Items do not remain in your Store Items view without membership. Items purchased with credits outside of membership stay in your account forever

Yep so still I’m not buying it. What about you?

NNNNNOOOOO!!!! Not memberships! Yes sadly this is correct Poptropica will soon have memberships. The post is titled Poptropica Memberships! and is Vlad the Viking’s work. This terrible! This is SSSCCC

: Post interrupted:

Hello there, this Abram Newsguy and I have some breaking news concerning this blog. We now have memberships! That’s right, memberships. For only $20 a week you will be able to read this entire post! Without the membership you will only be able to read a small portion of all posts, but with it you will be able to read the entire thing and comment! So beg your parents for 20 dollars right now and be able to read the rest of this post goodbye.

: Post screen goes blank for all you non-members!

See how terrible that was? You either had to spend $20 on something that would give you the benefits, that you had earlier for free. Though thankfully, the Poptropica membership isn’t all that bad. With the membership you can get early island access, unlimited costumes from the store,and all the gold cards in the store. This membership is much better than Club Penguin’s though. With CP’s you can’t do anything without a membership, at least hopefully with Poptropica you will be able to continue what you were doing before for free. But still this could signal upcoming doom, could the entire game become something you would have to pay for. So are you guys getting a membership? I’m certainly not.

In other news we now have 9,000 Hits!!!! Nice work PIB! And I have finally beat Counterfeit Island.  It took me a while because for several days I didn’t play it. And also in a Real World Connection, the Super Bowl is coming up! Colts vs Saints. I’m pulling for the Colts, what about you? Answer in the comments below! Well that’s it! Bye!

Yes, I do indeed wondor what admisison is… Anyways, I’m phsyched for this Greek Mythology island! Have you read the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series? Or seen Hercules, the Disney movie? If so, you’ll know TONS about this Greek hulla-buh-loo. Here’s a question for you… Who’s your favorite god? If you don’t know any, that’s perfectly fine! I’d say Athena is my favorite, the smart one. *wink, wink, nudge nudge*

YES I’M READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL! Random fact: Didja know the football is commonly reffered to “the pig-skin,” although it’s really made of cowhide! This fact has been brought to you by The Suite Life on Deck! xD

Haiyaz! I’m Hyper Star, from the PHF! I’m 11 and love to Irish stepdance(although I’m not Irish =P), read(I’m currently reading The Prophet of Yonwood, the prequel to the awesome City of Ember), go to school(If I’m not too lazy =P) and play on the computer!                                                  

I can’t wait to inform you with the awesome updates the Creators have to offer!

~Hyper Star!

UPDATE: I’d like to announce that we now have a Homepage! The URL is http://pibhome.tk/ It has a section like Facebook,where people can comment all they want. Don’t worry,its moderated. Also,Yahoo has made it possible to give donations to Haiti. For further info on helping out this cause,go to http://haitiearthquake.yahoo.com/networkforgood/index.html

Hi guys, it’s Abram! There are two new PCB posts, A Question of the Day, and our Salute to Haiti. First of all a post titled Knock, knock by Dr. Hare . It goes like this

Who’s there?
Watson
Watson who?
Watson TV today?

This seems to be an update of RTV Island. From previous updates it shows the same hotel from earlier posts. Plus if you’re still not sure about it, the post mentions TV which the earlier post said there is a lot of in RTV Island.

Also the newer post titled Counterfeit Island Wallpaper by Shark Boy. It goes

If you’re a fan of Counterfeit Island, you’ll enjoy this new Poptropica wallpaper!

As you can see this is a wallpaper of Counterfeit Island. It features the Black Widow and says Kickin It with the Black Widow Pretty cool looking. Though I think it might give me nightmares with her staring at me with that creepy look.  🙂

And also White Star/Dynaboa has left the PIB. So bye White Star

Now for the Question of the Day! Today’s question is: What is the capital of the country, Chad? Good luck!

Graham-3

And now finally, our salute to the country of Haiti. On the afternoon of January 12, 2010 a massive earthquake hit the country of Haiti. The epicenter of the earthquake was right of the shore of Haiti’s capital Port-au-Prince. There was widespread damage resulting with a majority of buildings falling and several people injured or sadly dead 😦 We here at the PIB send out our condolences to all the people of Haiti. We hope and pray that you will get better and live to tell your tale. Good luck to Haiti. This terrible disaster points out how lucky we have it were we live, such as here in the US. Hope you recover Haiti

-signing off, Abram

Hi Guys,today I wanna give you facts on Poptropica let you know about the New island. The Island’s name is confirmed as Mythology Island. The image title says it all. It should be coming out soon. Here is the PCB post:

New Characters, New Island!

Can you guess what this new island will be about?

SHARK BOY
Hmmmm…Seems odd…Hades..god of the underworld..and..a knight..(Man,I’ve gotta stop using the dots xD) . The Plot is unveiling. Perhaps you go into a world of gods where mortals are hated…you’ll notice Hades’ comment here:  *gag* mortals. Maybe one of the gods is kidnapped. Also,the contest is closed due to inactivity,but we will start it up again once more people are aware of it. Oh yeah,I kinda did a Mix on the image. I call it Myth Madness
You likey? Also,we’ll be adding polls soon,as well as some more pages. Keep in mind,there will be major changes in the next couple Days. We also hope to get one new member. If you ask,there’s a good chance you won’t get on here. PopNews! may be delayed. Lets just say the articles aren’t going good. 😉 See Ya Soon (No I’m won’t,I’m not a Stalker xD..oh you know what I mean..this is pointless here..)

Glub.. Glub..

Glub…Glub

Thunk..

Ow!

Oh hey guys! Didn’t see ya there. The new PCB post inspired me to have some good ol’ quality time with my fish, Finn and do some scuba diving in Finn’s aquarium. As you can see I didn’t see the wall of the aquarium and needless to say have a headache now. Give me a few seconds to rest and I’ll talk about the post.

Hours later

Snoring. Huh oh, you guys still here? I must have dosed off. What was I talking about? No not donuts. No not about pandas. Oh! The Creator’s post! Ok lets see. The post was titled Fish, my favorite kind of  fountain… posted by Comic Kid
avatar image

It read:

You’ll never believe what I saw on my adventures recently. A real fountain in the shape of a fish! Have I ever told you how much I love fish? I think I will like this new island a lot!

Interesting. Could this be part of the previous island sneak peek which ended up with me being fried by Hades? Could this be part of the island Graham predicted would be  named Mythology Island? As we see in the picture Comic Kid is standing around a very tropical beach-like island. In the back ground we see some trees and several tall rocks. Behind Comic Kid is some type of palace made of seashells. And he is standing on the shore of a pond with a fountain shaped like a fish in the center.

So as I already said could this be part of Mythology Island? Or maybe RTV Island? Or maybe a totally new island? Could this be part of a fish releated island? Just like these other fishy sneak peeks:

or

and these other animal releated sneak peeks that could hint a Fish Island:

q

Well that’s about it. Do you guys have any suggestions about this new mysterious post? Perhaps this was a Sneak Peek of RTV or maybe a new island all together!
