P.S. This is my 500th post on the ATP… we have come so far thanks to you guys!

UPDATES: CDO 10, Pages, & More

Hey guys! We have a lot of updates (some big, some small) to share with you today.

ATP icon count down of 10 - 2

I know most of you have probably forgotten about the Count Down of 10 (CDO 10), but Part 2 has been stuck to the front of the ATP for a very long time.

For those of you that don’t know, it was a series of 10 cool updates coming to the ATP. Of course, since I’m a master of procrastination, a lot of those updates never came to be.

So, I’ve come to the conclusion that we should just end it. I’m going to be 100% honest when I say that I don’t know when I will get around to presenting those updates.

Before you get super disappointed, know that I have made at least some progress in the updates that were hinted at, so they will all eventually come around. On that note, this will also allow us to make updates that weren’t a part of the count down.

So, the CDO 10 post will be taken off the front page and the entire count down will stop.

2014: Review of the Best

Hey guys! It’s been a great year, but I don’t want to get too sappy. Still, thank you to all of my viewers and authors that make the ATP possible. 🙂

It’s now 2015, but let’s take a moment to look back on all the major events.

50,000 Hits Party: Recap

Hey guys! I’m sorry to say that the 50,000 hits party has come to an end. We hope you had fun!

recap - party 4

The party was kind of small because many authors/viewers had to cancel at the last minute. I think it was still pretty fun anyway. 😉

We played Pictionary, referenced the Nickelodeon show “Fairy Odd Parents” a lot, had ice cream, went to McDonald’s, and more! Plus, Super Dragon and Hamburger Boy made an appearance in the common room. Sadly, Plug.Dj was down at the time of the event, so we didn’t get to listen to music. We battled in our Multiverse for a while and talked until around 11:30 pm EST (that means over 2 hours of Pictionary XD ) . At that time I had to leave and I think things died down soon afterwards.

I want to thank everyone that helped us reach such an amazing amount of hits. I apologize if you couldn’t make it to the party, but there will always be more.

Again, we hoped those of you who came had fun! 🙂

New Looks & ALS Challenge!

Hello everyone! You have probably noticed by now that things look a little different on this blog. We have decided to switch themes to change things up a bit, along with a new background and clever header made by Spotted Dragon. 🙂

A couple things that are different:

The sidebar where we show recent comments, sponsors, and other things, is now on the right side of the blog.

To the left of posts, you will see two circles, the bigger one shows what type of post it is. Sticky posts, like the info for the upcoming 50,000 hits party, show a thumbtack. Regular posts show a piece of paper. Clicking on the little circle with the heart will allow easy access to that post’s comments. (The number in the heart shows how many comments there are) Click to enlarge the images below.

On to other news…..

Have you heard about the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge? Plenty of people around the world are spreading awareness about the ALS disease by dumping a bucket of ice water on their head!

Many celebrities on TV have done it, and now, some famous poptropicans have, too!

Oliver and Jorge, from the popular Poptropica Comics,

Oliver and Jorge bucket

and Zeus from Mythology Island joined in, too!

…he doesn’t look to happy about it, though. XD

dr hare als ice bucket

At least Dr. Hare, from 24 Carrot Island looks happy!

black widow als ice bucket

Black Widow, from Counterfiet Island just looks really cold. 😛

Hopefully, more Poptropicans will help spread awareness!

(One idea that I have, is that the Creators release a free item that lets you hold a water bucket, and then press spacebar (or some other key) to pour it on your head, and then it takes a picture, and you could print it out!)

What do you think of the new looks around the ATP? Which poptropican do you think will accept the challenge next?
