WHY DOES IT HAVE TO BE MEMBERSHIP?!

Dear Poptropicans,

I've been playing Poptropica for YEARS, and I'd be lying if I said that I didn't miss the old islands. However, I believe that the creators are trying their absolute best to bring back the islands we know and love. If we could all be patient with them, maybe we'd get them back sooner. It's not like they HAVEN'T given us two old islands to enjoy, as well as two new islands! Maybe Poptropica won't EVER be the same, and maybe we just have to face our reality. But maybe we can all try a little harder to be understanding to those who are in control of the game. If you really have a problem with that, create your own game. No, seriously. Be my guest. I'd probably play it.

Also, to those who have a problem with memberships blocking things, I'm upset too. I don't have a membership. But you must understand that the creators have to gain money SOMEhow! Otherwise, they can't keep adding to the game we know and love.

I absolutely agree! Do you really think Poptropica creators would want to bring back old islands if all you keep whining about how Poptropica's not "original" anymore, or that EVERYTHING is trash? The new revert button, the two new episodic islands, and Goofball are actually good! Even if you don't have a membership, you can still win a free one at the PHB!

Glad you feel the same way :)

anonymousJanuary 11, 2022 am31 10:42 am

Oh yes, I forgot. We have 2 not-very-old-islands, one only for members, to "enjoy", assuming we can finish it without it glitching out twenty times like new Pop always does.
We have no reason to be nice to the creators. If they can't appreciate their players and payers, why should we respect them?

anonymousJanuary 11, 2022 am31 10:50 am

We aren't whining. We're right about the creators. You new players wouldn't understand, so I recommend you stay out of our way. Don't get involved in things you don't understand.

bring them backJanuary 11, 2022 pm31 2:15 pm

Yes!!! I agree with anonymous 100%! You new players have to stop being rude and open your eyes! Those creators don't care about us!

Chilly ShadowJanuary 11, 2022 pm31 4:22 pm

Anonymous, your complaining has accomplished nothing. And for the record, most of the players on this page, including me, played Poptropica from the first day it came out. I'd suggest, politely, that you'd spread good vibes about this game you claim to love(key word; claim), and kindly stop whining. I do understand your thoughts on this. ALL of us here understand. We also understand that Poptropica has undergone a monumental change and they are working hard to convert everything.
I assure you, they're making it happen. It's pretty exciting to see how far we've come since Poptropica converted to Haxe. The only thing that keeps the creators going is POSITIVE vibes, not negative ones. Are you sure they're the ones that aren't listening?

Incredible FlameJanuary 11, 2022 pm31 6:51 pm

@anonymous You really shouldn't be bossing people around. The two old islands are from 2014-2015, so that's not old??? It might not have been Early Poptropica old, but you should be thankful! The glitches might be annoying, but do you even know how much effort is spent into a game like this? Try making a game yourself, and see if you can make it better than Pop. Besides, the islands probably will be for everyone eventually. Poptropica just need to make some money to spend on Poptropica updates. Without membership, it's over, there will be no more Pop for you.

Golden CrownJanuary 12, 2022 am31 10:53 am

I feel like you MISSED the part where i said that I've been playing Poptropica for years.

well, it was worth a shot.

Golden BrainJanuary 12, 2022 pm31 9:43 pm

Well you are whining because whines means complaining and you are doing exactly that. New players don’t want to hear if the creators are right or wrong about doing whatever they’re doing nowadays. People came to Poptropica to have fun not to get drawn into politics. It’s people like you who sour the entire experience for everyone. The old islands were great, but who created them? That’s right, the creators did. Good bye

Blue FireJanuary 13, 2022 am31 10:33 am

Listen here anonymous, you are whining. Don't group original players like that. I've been playing since the game came out! The new islands are fun and original. And don't complain about membership. The developers are hard at work and need funding. So please cut everyone some slack you overgrown fungus. Have a lovely day :).

Blue FireJanuary 13, 2022 am31 10:36 am

Also what is up with this "So I recommend you stay out of our way" bull? You sound like you watch and enjoy Twillight. 

Shifty PawJanuary 10, 2022 pm31 7:39 pm

Yeah, you guys are right.
We are probably just putting the creators down, distracting them from trying to satisfy us.
I am ok with members only islands because they need money to bring back old islands.
The poptropica creators are trying their hardest, so what if we focus on the good things, bringing back mission Atlantis and Arabian nights!
I understand all the criticism because it is sometimes constructive. But not when it is just putting down.
Thankyou poptropica for your hard work!

Oh, come on!! I thought you were on OUR side! Don't let the silver tongue of the creators convince you that they actually care! All they do is delete old stuff, no matter how much they say they understand and share our frustration. Don't let them trick you! We have every right to complain! They aren't doing any hard work! They just make mini-quests off of the islands that other people thought up! Let that sink in. WE'RE right!

anonymousJanuary 11, 2022 pm31 2:17 pm

I thought you were on our side! Don't let the silver tongue of the creators fool you! They try to trick you into thinking they "share and understand our frustration", but they're lying! We're right to yell at them!

Incredible FlameJanuary 11, 2022 pm31 6:53 pm

Good to know that there is still people out there who appreciate the creators' work!

Hyper LightningJanuary 10, 2022 pm31 11:08 pm

I'm sad it's for members! But for MEMBERS just tell me what happens! Thank you!😃

It's not that great with the gameplay, and there's barely any story or adventures, but the rewards are pretty good! If you want the rewards, you can win one at the PHB! https://poptropi.ca/community/free-poptropica-membership/

anonymousJanuary 11, 2022 am31 10:40 am

No no NO!
Open your eyes, people! These creators aren't trying to bring back old stuff! All they do is delete, delete, delete it!! We aren't putting them down when we criticize them; we're putting them in their place. If they had any regret of deleting literally everything old, why would they delete old islands as the first move of the new year? it just doesn't make sense! Plus, we deserve more respect. We give them money, but they still ignore us. We have our rights. If they use our money to do what we told them not to do, then why should we keep respecting them? Ever hear the saying "You catch more bees with honey"? I don't believe that. I say you catch more bees with an electric fly swatter. If they cared about bringing back old stuff, they would save their money for it. Instead, they spend valuable resources remaking the Inventory, holding Costume Contests, and MAKING SO MANY DARNED MINI-QUESTS! Those aren't what we want or need, so why would they waste money on it when they could use those same resources to satisfy us? That's just being irresponsible.
So again, open your eyes, people! Don't call me impatient or rude. I have every right to call the creators out on what they're doing wrong. They're being incredibly unreasonable.

Dangerous ShadowJanuary 11, 2022 pm31 12:42 pm

WAIT WHAT???? IT'S FOR MEMBERS ONLY?????? I THOUGHT IT WAS FOR EVERYONE!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
(Lol, I'm so overreacting.)
That's so sad. :CCC
Have fun, members!

anonymousJanuary 11, 2022 pm31 2:19 pm

All you people are just plain wrong. Those creators don't care about how much we want old Pop back! We're not putting them down; we're putting them in their place. We're the players and payers, but we get no respect. Stop defending them. They don't deserve it.
