Last week, I shared some of the upcoming emojis that Penguin of the Week winners would receive. As of today, after a long delay as the team work on getting polls on the blog, we are finally able to vote for them!
Penguin of the Week winners will get 3 emojis. One of them will the be one of these:
I personally like the trophy emoji the most as it reminds me of the Penguin Play Awards trophy. To cast your vote, sign into your Disney account and vote here. Hopefully this will be the first of many polls on the Club Penguin Island blog!
This is a quick post to let you know that the Club Penguin Island Blog, also known as “Island News” will be receiving a feature allowing penguins to submit their amazing fan-art to the team this Summer, Megg has revealed on Twitter!
That’s awesome news and I hope the art is then used in the NEW set of Island Insider! We also expect the “legit polls” feature of the blog to be released, with a vote of the Penguin of the Week emoji pack expected soon!
I wish the developer working on this luck, I can’t wait!
The official release of the Club Penguin Island blog is going to be either today or tomorrow, according to Megg!
This is very exciting, especially since we’ve not got any hints of the new feature which caused a delay of three months! Also, for those wondering about the Club Penguin Island connection issues, the team are working on it!
This is so exciting, I can’t wait to start being more active on the Blog and to welcome the new penguins to our island!
We’re getting some kind of confusing news here at Club Penguin Mountains and we are still awaiting an official response but from what we can tell, the Club Penguin Island blog is out and that means that Club Penguin Island will be launching today. Megg has released a new post however it is password protected:
Once again, we are not quite sure on the details but it appears as if Club Penguin Island will be released worldwide today. Today is an emotional day. I will have 3 more posts, so make sure to return at 9am PST.
Thank you Pen50gi for this information.
Just a quick update that the Club Penguin Island blog release has been moved to the date of worldwide release, but Megg has promised a new feature which the one web developer is working on!
I’m really excited for this feature! The team sure have put a lot of extra effort into this, especially since it was estimated to come out in January/February time! I can’t wait to see it and I wish the team luck in making it as awesome as possible!
Although the Club Penguin Island blog was originally meant to launch today, Megg has responded to my question confirming that it’s being delayed but also “so close”.
The blog has been delayed for a month now so I am thinking something major is happening to it, so it’s good that they’re getting that fixed! I would now expect to see the blog come out with the game..
Does this disappoint you? Be sure to check back frequently for the latest Club Penguin Island news!
Club Penguin Island’s release date will not be revealed and the team are now working towards a late March launch rather than an early March launch, according to Megg.
This comment made by Megg on the blog confirms that the team won’t actually give the release date, they’ll just launch the app and then let people know when it’s launched, kind of like how the geo-beta was. I’ll be sure to let you know when it’s out!
Megg said that the team was hoping for an early March launch. The good news is that the game is still on track to launch this month and that’s the important thing! It’ll just be in late March so it’s not really a delay.
And lastly, to those curious as to what’s coming in March, we’ll just have to find out. There won’t be a “What’s Coming” this month post but this will continue on the Club Penguin Island blog!
That’s all for today! Thank you for reading and thanks to Megg for answering these questions! Be sure to check back frequently for the latest Club Penguin Island content!
We’ve already seen some cool sneak peeks of the Club Penguin Island blog but until now, we did not know when it was due to come live.
Megg has announced that the release date has been delayed to March 17 2017, which could mean that the blog comes out before worldwide release. Maybe on the same day…?
I’m fine with this delay! The blog looks so awesome and fresh. Having the developer spend a few extra weeks perfecting it is understandable because it’s such an important part of CP Island.
Thanks for reading and good luck to the developer! Be sure to check back for the latest news!
In the latest Island Insider episode, Megg shared some of the finalised designs for the Club Penguin Island blog, on track to launch in early March! Take a look!
She also reenforced the fact that blog comments will be automatically approved and whilst saying that it will lead to real-time conversations, she did not address my concern of the system being abused easily.
Either way, the blog design itself looks modern and refreshing! I’m curious to see how it will look on mobile devices and how the blog will be used, but I’m pretty happy with the content of this sneak peek!
Be sure to check back frequently for the latest news!
Welcome to the new Club Penguin Mountains!
I am finally pleased to successfully launch the new theme and new pages, a project which has taken over 2 hard weeks to fulfil! Let’s get started in explaining what is new and what is coming in the future.
The new design:
Perhaps the most obvious change is the decision of the new theme known as Harmonic. This decision was not at all taken lightly and I received a lot of feedback asking for a light theme. We went on to create multiple polls to try and help make our decision on if we should do this.
Ultimately, the main reason for this change is that viewing this blog on a mobile phone has never been easier. Of course, desktop is always the most ideal place to visit a blog on but seeing how the new virtual world is mobile only, you can get the latest news and guides in a few taps.
Our mobile theme is more sufficient in the fact that our menu can be accessed easily and the header no longer appears. This has resulted in me deciding to end the mobile app. Unfortunately, under EU law, I still need to keep the banner which makes you agree to the Terms and Conditions of this blog.
I have also added new “buttons” to our sidebar which allow a user to access specific and detailed content which you’re looking for in literally a tap. This makes the viewer experience so much easier from being able to access strictly news to getting a guide. Try it out on the sidebar!
Also, the sidebar has been updated massively. You may notice that the view count is no longer at the top. I’m very transparent about my views since I wouldn’t have them without you, but they’re now located at the bottom of the page.
I’ve also prioritised the Google Translate button as the community is made up of so many languages. I also now support the bloggers who we have partnered with, though we will update this soon!
As your #1 source for Club Penguin Island, it’s essential that we’re up to date with what is being offered. This means that I have finally created tutorials for all character adventures that include steps and a video as well as images for puzzles.
Not only that but we now have a detailed description for every area in the game that includes locations, photos, collectibiles, things to do there and more. We’ve also got a list of activities for you to do, regardless of membership status. Our “About” page has been updated too.
Removal of Pages:
I’ve removed many pages that were not popular at all and didn’t fit in. Things that seem to be missing might be located under the “Extras” or “Fun Stuff” page. Please do let me know of any other ideas you may have for pages! I do have some of my own but I’m currently not working on new pages.
Whilst I will be posting the latest news, I feel like I really want to continue discussions. As such, I will do so and I hope that they will be better than ever! One other thing which I want to say is that the domain issues I was talking about a few weeks ago have all been solved.
This update required a lot of work and whilst it may not seem like that, many attempts were failures. There’s 4 headers and I had to redesign each one from scratch 3 or 4 times. However, the new blog is out and I’m so excited for what the future holds!
I do want to take note that interestingly, I’ve noticed that a “big blog” has actually copied/stolen the images which I’ve taken without permission. This is actually a pretty big deal to me and I’ve sent in an email to that owner stating the laws which were broken. The article in question is this one and it’s depressing how a blog who strongly disliked me previously will now steal content of mine for views.
Yes, this blog is progressing but I’m going to always stick true to Club Penguin Mountains’ values and vision. Today is unfortunately a reminder that other blogs don’t and I’m going to have to continue watermarking images for DMCA takedowns. That being said, there are some really amazing supportive bloggers and viewers in this community who I’d like to really thank. You know who you are and I want to say this to you: thank you.
