Friends Pages!

We've given the friends page a totally new look with awesome new features!

You can leave messages for your friends, share your photos, swap costumes, and customize your page!

You can like all the epic pages you come across, visit your friends clubhouses, decorate your sticker wall and more!

To access the new friends page just click the friends icon you've always used in the main menu!

Want more features added? Let us know in the comments!

So to recap...
* Users can no longer be friended by supplying their username.
* Only nine or so users can be visible in a user's friend list.
* People cannot be unfriended.
* The sticker wall feature, which for some reason is members-only, is rendered obsolete by the much-superior photobooth.
* Profiles can now be "liked", much like a social media page, but this action cannot be undone. It also serves little purpose.

I think the idea of revamping the profile page is a good one, and I admit that some features like the clubhouse link and changeable wallpapers are nice additions, but overall this seems more like a prototype than a worthwhile update.

I want the previous friends look back, where we could answer questions daily man! DX

why did they change it anyway? what's thinknoodles gonna think?

NOOOO! I'm going to lose all 50 of my hilarious but hard worked for photos! Maybe they could keep the old friend page on non-sound islands and this new thing on sound islands. I'm sure it would work for everyone, especially if you are on a old island and have to start the new engine when accessing the friend page (which takes a very long time to load.) Just a suggestion.

CRC Poptropican VeteranJanuary 9, 2019 am31 10:01 am

Please keep this new friend page on sound-islands and not on old Poptropican islands. That way, we still keep photos, pop quizzes, friend customization, and many other useful measures. Thanks.

Old Poptropica friend list was the best but I will also try hard to be very fine with changes that is what I always work hard on. The only thing that will make me feel a bit bad is that if I make friends with more others and they turn out to also play Poptropica I can't add them as a friend can you add another way to get friends easier but it's still a pretty cool update. I'll always love Poptropica though and I hope for someday I'll be able to aford for Poptropica membership for me where I got to where I can play newest islands on Poptropica worlds right away insted of having to wait for it to come out for everyone I still miss when there were Demo's like for when Escape from Pelican Rock was the newest island as a Demo I really like that Idea for just the new friend thing only on sound music islands and not the ones with no music at all in the backround so that way I can still add new friends that play Poptropica that there may be when I make friends with other Poptropica players that I may know in person or not it's cool making friends for me online or real life online they can meet my Poptropican Popular Noodle I chose to go with for me it's the best name I can get for me cause sadly I can't get my name as a lion king charecter not even my own Kira Lioness but I'm fine with Popular Noodle too for me I like that my Poptropican got my most favorite youtuber he is quite Popular youtuber Thinknoodles of course and I consider myself like A noodle whatever his big fans like me are called I'm one of them in a way to me so for me it is a fine Poptropican name I found for myself Popular Noodle is a fine name in this game. It will be hard on me not being able to add anymore new friends I make that may also Play Poptropica but sadly I might just have to get over it eventually and with never seeing Island Photos you could see before when playing Poptropica islands that I'll miss along with other stuff for sure but I'll be able to get over it Eventually I uselly do for things it's mainly always possiable for me eventually.

It's not perfect, but it's a start; I would argue that this new friends page is actually a downgrade from the original one, but it could be improved upon with several new updates in the future. To begin with, I think everyone can agree that a lot of the original friends page features are missing and should return; when compared to what we had before, it just feels rather incomplete and empty. It is probably difficult translating all these features from the original engine to the newer engine and may take some time, so I can understand if this is a problem. (I don't know much about computer programming, but if I'm wrong please ignore what I just said lol). I am open to change and new ideas, but some of the new additions serves no real purpose (Most notably the sticker wall, and the the liking system). Customizing the profile page is a neat cosmetic, and more could be done with this idea going forward, but please make it so that these features aren't completely exclusive to Members; for example, regarding the wallpaper, make it so that some wallpapers are only available to members, while others are available to everyone etc. I don't want this post to drag on forever with a bajillion different ideas, so I'll just leave it at that. Thanks for reading! (If you did lol, idk how this comment approval system works)

Friendly ClawJanuary 11, 2019 am31 12:34 am

This is cool, but I would like if in the future, the Tribes, Photos, and Daily Questions came back. Photos were one of my favourite features, I worked hard to get them all.

CJJanuary 11, 2019 pm31 1:29 pm

Now I cant add my freinds or unfriend people! :(

annerzJanuary 13, 2019 pm31 12:52 pm

This is honestly the ultimate downgrade for non-members. Not only have almost all of the old features been deleted, but the new features are, of course, members' only.
I understand that this website needs money to keep running, but there is still a huge community of non-members that has loved Poptropica for years and is still waiting around to see what becomes of it.
Please notice that and maybe give them a few more features, because if we're going to be waiting a month for a new update, then we want it to be worth our while. So this update wasn't really worth all of the hype.
You need to be honest about how great your updates are actually going to be, cause I kind of think you use "This update is going to be awesome" and statements like that as an excuse for the large amount of time it takes for you to release them.
If the updates you've been releasing lately hadn't been so forgetful of non-members, then maybe I wouldn't be so critical.
But here's a solution to the problem: Give the non-members something fun to do so they still have a reason to play this game (hint hint, islands!)
Thank you for listening to our comments about the game and continuing to run the game that I grew up on.

UnknownJanuary 13, 2019 pm31 2:33 pm

My dad just told me that I can still play Poptropica on a different browser. I am using Microsoft edge now and it's not asking me to enable adobe flash player! Some will still be able to Poptropica!

Joey NigroJanuary 13, 2019 pm31 4:44 pm

Thank you.

Drawn SwordsJanuary 14, 2019 pm31 6:40 pm

I love how they are making really cool updates to try to make the game more attractive to newer or younger players, but they removed some of my favorite things about Poptropica. I always loved Tribes, it was awesome to me when I was younger and I think it will be the same for, as I said, newer and younger players as well. R.I.P Photos as well the photos, with the funny captions, made me want to solve islands longer and find more items. No hate on the Poptropica creators, they always do the best to make Poptropica the game it can be :)

Joey NigroJanuary 15, 2019 pm31 6:29 pm

Don't forget to retire Shrink Ray Island.

greywolfJanuary 19, 2019 pm31 10:07 pm

Will you guys be releasing new islands or will there be no new islands and just updates in the game?

Max FraserJanuary 28, 2019 pm31 12:32 pm

It is awful.
Poptropica used to be my favourite game.
The updates keep getting worse and worse for non-members. Everything is a long prosess. Where are the tribes? the add friends option? the photos? the costumiser? all my old friends? the daily pop quiz? Everything is gone. Nothing fun in the friends page anymore... PLEASE DO SOMETHING TO FIX THIS. GIVE US AN OPTION TO SWITCH BACK TO THE OLD FRIENDS PAGE!

Harley DiazJanuary 28, 2019 pm31 4:33 pm

why does all the good stuff like stickers have to membership

UnknownJanuary 31, 2019 am31 8:43 am

Let former members keep Membership items they've bought, this is a huge issue and now items that weren't even "member items" before are now member items and I can't use them despite I used credits or promo codes to get them. Fix this please.

UnknownFebruary 4, 2019 pm28 9:52 pm

This is so sad, Poptropica isn't what it used to be, man. It's been a long time but I just want new islands at this point. But it really do be like that sometimes.
I have faith in the creators-just not as much as I used to.

UnknownFebruary 10, 2019 pm28 12:27 pm

I can't even delete friends I don't want because they have no money, if you know what I mean. (they is newbies) BrOOoo, and I cant even get my beloved photos back!!!!!!! UNDO THE UPDATE DOOD

Chocolate4FroggyFebruary 25, 2019 pm28 6:43 pm

On paper, revamping the page was actually a good idea, but in hindsight the layout isn't as good as it was. Like people said before there is no search bar to find people you know irl into the game. As well as you can't delete people (which is SO annoying). I'm kinda going onto a rant at this point, but why is there no new islands? Why is there no chat bar were we can speak freely? Poptropica use to be so much fun.. but now with all these member benefits that 'fun' is beginning to degrade over time the more updates you guys put out. While I do like the clubhouse and wallpaper addition, its just really not enough.

UnknownMarch 3, 2019 pm31 6:17 pm

When I try and load the new friends page it won't load.

UnknownMarch 8, 2019 pm31 6:00 pm

Much worse than before. You can't remove friends, or add them via username, and the quizzes are gone, along with the photos that were taken automatically when progressing through islands, and also you can't remove likes. Altogether, the worst update ever.

LoliHiBlogsMarch 21, 2019 pm31 9:15 pm

I want to be completely frank. The old version was better. You could add friends with usernames, take fun quizzes, browse your funny pictures, and the game wasn't so involved with membership. Now, I can't find one thing in Poptropica that doesn't need membership. Pets? Membership. Shop items? Membership. Islands? Membership. Friend pages? Membership. Also, if you really want a change your players are happy with, free chat. Deleting friends. Mini maps. NEW maps. But mostly just free chat, PLEASE.

AnonymousJanuary 29, 2021 am31 9:28 am

Free chat would be dangerous because young children would probably give personal information, like a phone number or address.

owopiggicakesApril 3, 2019 pm30 5:44 pm

the new version is pretty neat but i really need a way to delete friends. now i just have some random friends and what is really sad is that i can't even scroll to the bottum of my friends page to find the rest of my friends. (it will also be nice if you can add friends by username)

UnknownApril 3, 2019 pm30 10:41 pm

Half the game has the newer customization and half is still outdated please try and fix this and the old store was a lot better in my opinion and I agree with the nonmembers don't get enough I just want to sit down and relax while playing this game and I don't want another case of club penguin

Evan Tietema (;April 13, 2019 pm30 4:58 pm

I really just need to unfriend someone. That is a feature that should be added.

UnknownApril 18, 2019 pm30 2:52 pm

HOW DO U ADD A FRIEND????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

zApril 28, 2019 pm30 6:28 pm

change the shop and friend page back!!! poptropica is becoming more and more member based, which honestly doesn't make a lot of sense. from a marketing viewpoint, the majority of users are non-member and if you keep rolling out with new "fun updates" geared towards members, you're going to be losing a lot of users. as far as i know, poptropica is much less popular than before and trying to get more people to buy memberships is close to impossible. the majority of players are those who are in their teens, who remember poptropica from the 2012-2015 era, when it was REALLY big. back then we might've bought memberships, but now, no one is obsessed with the game anymore. therefore, there is no point in buying a membership. i like the thought of revamping the page, but the way you're doing it isn't the best.

UnknownMay 7, 2019 pm31 2:21 pm

Pleas make a unfriend button because its geting annoying when people keep friending me and I didn't aprove them them

UnknownMay 17, 2019 pm31 4:14 pm

could you possibly add a "Add Friend" to the new one

could you add a friend approval system

UnknownMay 17, 2019 pm31 4:18 pm

I also think the new look kind of looks like a facebook page in some very really weird way. But that's just me.

catalina~June 14, 2019 am30 11:41 am

This is such a downgrade from the previous friends page. Not being able to add people, not having any of the photos I worked hard to get on each island, and the daily questions really stinks. I honestly just want the old poptropica style back. I’m just grateful that I have an older account so I can still play the old islands, despite the fact that spy island is broken in one area.

AnonymousJune 25, 2019 pm30 9:18 pm

I went into the arcade and I got a bunch of random friends I didn't get messages to approve for. And I was trying out a prank and I clicked someone and it made them my friend without a friend button. I just want an actual friend button, friend approval button, and unfriend button. Just add those 3 simple buttons so that there's less accidents and confusion, please.

how to add friends and search users?

AnonymousOctober 27, 2019 pm31 8:28 pm

Please change the friends page. If anything, you can keep this update as a settings option so people can enjoy 2 different friends page and change them. It would be better to use the old friends page as the default one since it's more flexible.

1 suggestion for the new friends page is the ability to add or remove a friend. There has been some accidents with adding random poptropicans there!

Another suggestion is to bring back the pop quizzes for the old friends page (if you would like to bring the old friends page back)

It would mean so much to us! Thanks!
