Community Profile: Interview with Echo006, Blogs, Dadted, Pup1one, Penny2415, Sandor, #CPUnited
Welcome to the first ever Club Penguin community post as part of Club Penguin Mountains’ monthly community profile series! We’ve got an exclusive interview with Echo006, some awesome artwork by Penny2415 and Sandor, blog posts, videos and way more! Every month, I’m going to be speaking to different people and hopefully we could feature some really awesome stuff! Before I begin, I’d like to welcome everyone to send in anything which they might like featured in this post. Without further ado, let’s get into this post!
In our community, there’s no shortage of great artists. So our first ever artwork to be featured in this Community Profile Series is from an amazing artist known as Penny2415.
Hey guys, so at first glance of my art you may notice a red penguin with a jet pack and wonder is that jet pack guy? The answer is yes, I just like to draw him with hair lol. I mainly just draw Penny and jpg, you may notice I like to draw gore and glowing effects on things. Well I don’t know what else to say so I guess that’s it. Enjoy browsing through some of my pieces!
I’m sure you’ll agree with me when I say that this artwork is amazing. Penny is also hosting a contest where you could get your very own drawing by writing a short Halloween Story. The details can be found on her social media accounts. These are only some of her pieces so if you’d like to see more of her artwork, be sure to support her on DeviantArt! You can also subscribe to her to see speed-artworks and follow her on Twitter!

This week, I want to feature another amazing artist, and focus on his latest project. His name is Sandor, and you may recognise his name as the owner of the CPPS, Flippr. I’d like to share with you his Music Jam which he created. In my opinion, it’s better than Club Penguin’s work!
If that isn’t good enough for you, the above is only four rooms. Sandor literally re-created the ENTIRE island and made it into a simulation which you can view on his website. I would highly recommend you spend a few minutes touring his island by going to his website as it’s absolutely amazing. I believe that he’s also working on some more parties, so be sure to check him out on social media too!

On a smaller note, I’d like to thank DjSpinner13 and Bluey1709 for making some logos for me! I find these really awesome, and I’d like to give them a massive thank you for creating them! You may recognise them from the website, but now you know who made them!

There are many talented players in our community, including video-makers! Now, some of you know that a very popular Club Penguin YouTuber is going to stop making CP videos soon, which is really sad. However, at the time of you reading this, he would have made his final video. For now, I can only show you the 13 second trailer of Pup1one’s “Goodbye, Hello”.
I would highly reccommend you to check out Pup1one’s channel. I’ve made a few posts about him before, and I really love his videos, particularly his Grey Puffle video. I’m sure that you will too! It’s a shame that he’s stopping his channel, but I wish him all the best of luck in the future.

On the topic of trailers, I’d like to share another trailer created by Blue21102, who has created some amazing productions such as “Hermit” and “The Phone Call”. You may have seen those in my DVD, but I suspect that this video will be his masterpiece! Judging from the trailer, it seems amazing!
Whilst we have to “stay tuned” for his next video, he already has some great content on both his blog and his YouTube channel, so go check him out!

Our next video comes from another large Club Penguin YouTuber with over 600 subscribers! Around a month ago, Dadted made a new series called “The Club Penguin Show”. It’s a bit like “The Spoiler Alert” and I’m sure that there will be many more episodes in the future. For now, here is Dadted’s first episode!
I think that this idea is really awesome, and I’m surprised no one thought about it before! It’s a great way for people to have fun, and I’m excited to see what the rest of the show has in store for us!
There are so many amazing blogs in this community and I think it would take many months, if not, years until I cover all the amazing blogs in this series. So, instead I’ve decided to do something different. I’m going to feature a few of my favourite Club Penguin blog posts which I have read this month. If you’re interested, you can check out the rest of their content!
Now, I’ve kept this post a bit secret and as such, I can’t really have people send in their blog posts…but now I can! If you’re interested, please do send in your blog posts which you find interesting! Click the computer screen to read the original post!
There is some controversy surrounding this post by Riyita on Club Penguin Space, however I like it. He’s highlighted what we want to see this Holiday Party and I’m sure a lot of us secretly agree with his opinions. The fact that he is such a large blogger makes it more likely that the team will listen to him. I mean, I made a post requesting that the team returns the Holiday Party Train from 2013 but I doubt they’ll listen to me.
The fact that Riyita has put all of the community’s thoughts into one post for the team to see is the reason why I am featuring it!
Blue21102 is one of my favourite bloggers, and his most recent post is amazing, like all his posts. I think the idea of “Top 10 Memories” is so simple, but Blue has some great ones. I don’t really one to spoil it, but make sure you check out that post, along with the rest of The Blue Blog!
Community Event (#CPUnited):
Every week, at 9pm (UK time), dozens of players attend Club Penguin United, which is a themed meet-up. These events are HUGE throughout the community and sometimes even moderators attend! I would highly reccommend you attending one. It takes place on Monday at 9pm on the server Marshmallow. You can see theme details on their Twitter account! Just check out these screenshots, given to me by one of the hosts, Echo006!
[twitter-follow screen_name=’CPUnitedTeam’ show_count=’yes’]
And talking about CPUnited, I’ve spoken to Echo006, who is one of the hosts of this event. I’ve asked him a few questions, and he’s even shared some exclusive information about an upcoming theme. So let’s all thank Echo!
1. 2016 has been a year hated by many players in the community, including myself. It’s a time of uncertainty for Club Penguin, leading up to #ProjectSuperSecret. What are your thoughts regarding this?
As I’ve said many times in tweets regarding #ProjectSuperSecret, I am trying to be very optimistic about the future. At first, it was devastating to hear the news that our penguins and all our coins, igloos, puffles, items and stamps wouldn’t be transferred over. But I have come to realise that change is good and for anything to evolve, adapt and stay alive, it needs to change to its environment. Club Penguin is trying to do exactly this. They have recognised that flash games are dying and that flash CP won’t be sustainable anymore, and so are experimenting with newer things, such as Project Super Secret! I definitely think that moving away from desktop and onto apps is a good thing for Club Penguin, but I would be very upset if the desktop version of Club Penguin was shut down, as it has been a part of my life for so long! As for 2016 as a year on Club Penguin, it has been very different to normal years. The parties have been very basic, with little questlines and extremely long. I believe parties should be two weeks, to keep everybody interested and entertained. 6 week parties are boring and tiresome. I don’t even enjoy playing Club Penguin while the Frozen takeover is on. It’s not fun and it’s simply boring. Even Megg knows this. However, I completely understand why Club Penguin are reusing old parties and extending the time on them. It’s because their whole focus has shifted onto Project Super Secret. They’ve realised that flash CP is going to end sooner or later and they have to push forwards and get Project Super Secret released smoothly and quickly, so they have devoted more time to the app than they have to designing new party rooms and items. It’s a shame the Halloween Party and Holiday Party will mostly use rooms from last year, but I’m perfectly okay with this if Project Super Secret really is worth it!
2. How has Club Penguin impacted your life?
Club Penguin has impacted my life in so many different ways. I have been playing it for 8 and a half years now, and I have watched it grow and become an amazing place to hangout. Club Penguin taught me how to type, got me interested in computers and gave me access to Social Media. I made everlasting friendships on Club Penguin and I have become a well-known player amongst the community! I love chatting and talking to people on Twitter, and Club Penguin has definitely become a part of my daily-life. I used to blog about Club Penguin for 2 years and had an amazing experience. And now, we are attempting to unite the community in our weekly meetups, #CPUnited. My life definitely wouldn’t be the same with Club Penguin.
3. If you were in charge of Club Penguin, what do you do?
If I was in charge of Club Penguin, I would make lots of changes. Firstly, I would change the rules regarding how the staff can interactive with the community and players. I feel that often we are not listened to, and our ideas are not heard or expressed. Luckily, we are very fortunate to have Megg as community manager who does listen and has returned many things that we want, like the Music Jam! I would also ensure that parties were NOT 6 weeks long, and that new interactive content was released every week, not every 2 weeks. I would definitely hide the pins in more obscure places, as well as improving the stability of the Club Penguin app!
4. Could you tell us more about #CPUnited?
#CPUnited is an amazing community project that involves the whole community and bringing everyone together. The sole purpose of #CPUnited is to unite the community and the servers! We wanted to bring a unique and different twist to Club Penguin meetups, and so we decided that our meetups would be different. They would have different themes every week. We’ve had a complete range of activities and every week is unique! The project was thought up by myself, Pingu15cool, Waddles4g1 and Kannoo2! We run the @CPUnitedTeam Twitter account and host weekly parties on Marshmallow at 1pm PST! Our meetups are loved by the whole community and everybody gets involved with roleplay and enjoying the activities. It is a truly magical experience where everybody gets together and has so much fun! And, I can exclusively reveal here on CPMountains, that after this week’s meetup Ghosts vs Zombies, we will be having a Candy Scavenger Hunt theme for Halloween on October 9th!!
5. Is there anything else you would like to say?
I would like to say thank you for everyone reading this interview! (I know it’s quite long!) I hope you learnt a lot about what I think of the amazing community and the wonderful game, Club Penguin. I’d like to say a huge shoutout to the #CPUnited team, and if you haven’t been to our events yet, you really should! Thank you everyone for making this possible, and everyone who follows me on Twitter, @Echo006, you are all awesome!
Wow! I’d like to give a really MASSIVE thank you to Echo006 for allowing me to interview him! Every month, I’m going to aim to interview a member of this community. I think it’s awesome that Echo agreed to this one! Make sure to follow him and the rest of the #CPUnited team provided you do have a Twitter account.

To conclude, this has been an awesome post to make! It’s over 2100 words, but most of that was taken up by other people, which is what I’m really trying to do! I hope that there are many more of these in the future because there are so any people who I would like to feature. Thank you to everyone who is featured in this post and thank you for reading! 🙂
Interview #1: Rocketsnail
I’ve been closely monitoring my recent survey to find out that a surprising number of people want to see interviews on Club Penguin Mountains. As such, I reached out to Rocketsnail to try and start this series with a bang and surprisingly, he agreed! I asked my interviewer to ask him a few questions, and today I am pleased to be able to share his answers!
Rocketsnail, also known as Lance Priebe was the co-founder of the game we know today as Club Penguin. He left in 2010 (I believe it was September or October) and has since gone on to develop other things, and you can check out some more cool stuff about him at rocketsnail.com! I’m pretty thrilled to be able to ask him a few questions.
I found these answers rather interesting! I also couldn’t help think about Michael who was inspired by Club Penguin.
I’d like to give a massive thank you to Lance for answering my three questions! I’m going to try and see if I can ask more people, particularly people who are in the community, more questions so maybe we could get a monthly serious going.
Idea: Rating Parties
I’d like to start of this post by apologising for the lack of new content coming out. I’m constantly checking the survey for ways to add more content and improve Club Penguin Mountains. I’m also hoping to do a lot for our 3rd Birthday which is dawning on us quickly.
Anyway, you’ve probably read my recent letter in which I criticised a lot of the game. In fact, even Megg told me she was going to check it out. Whilst I raised a lot of points, I didn’t raise many solutions. Today I have a solution to the problem of having parties return which we don’t like, such as the third Frozen Party/Takeover.
My idea is ridiculously simple, but it could have such a positive impact on our game. I’m actually surprised that it wasn’t implemented ages ago. Once a party ends, I believe that everyone should have the opportunity to rate it. For example, a message like this could appear the next time a player logs in after the party ends.
What’s the purpose of this? Well, Club Penguin claimed that they returned the Frozen Party because many players wanted to see it again, however many were extremely angry when it returned. This way, they can really see the most popular parties which players would want to see again. It would solve the demand to stop takeovers as they could really see that players don’t, or maybe even do, like takeovers.
I respect that the final few 2D parties are probably already planned, but since there will eventually be parties when Project Super Secret launches, I think that the Club Penguin team should add it to the new game. Now, I’m not a coder, and I don’t know how difficult this would be to implement. But think of how much better our island would be if Club Penguin knew which parties we liked and which parties we didn’t. If the worse came to the worse, they could always have a poll on the Club Penguin blog, but this way, everyone is bound to rate the party.
It’s a win-win situation. Club Penguin gets to know which parties will get them more money. We get to have our favourite parties return.
Can the Iceberg be tipped?
Can the Iceberg be tipped? Well I think yes because there are so many clues that the Iceberg CAN be tipped. So the first picture/GIF will show you that people tried to tip the Iceberg on the Club Penguin mobile app. Is that not cool? I think it is. It would be mega cool if it did tip on the mobile app.
In a PSA mission Spy & Seek he is talking to Klutzy that he tipped the Iceberg and it was easy for him. Why is it hard for penguins? Check the picture below.
Well that is pretty cool. Maybe you need a certain colour to tip the Iceberg.
As shown below somebody named @DesktopCP on twitter asked @RocketSnail, “Is it possible to tip the iceberg? If so, how? If it is not, did you ever plan for such a feature? Lets see the picture when @DesktopCP asks the question. Sadly, Rocket can not tell us the secret but its okay. We can figure it out ourselves.
So in the attic there is a photo where it shows the Iceberg is tipped. That photo was first seen in the Halloween party. That is pretty cool. I think Club Penguin will leave us more clues and more then we will find out how to tip the Iceberg.
So while browsing through some Club Penguin video I found one about Disney Mix. While watching it I saw this on Megg top “I know how to tip the Iceberg.” That is so cool. I wish we knew how to tip the Iceberg too!
Rocketsnail (Lance) is once again asked, “One year ago you told us it was possible to tip the iceberg on club penguin. Have you received anymore information since then?” He replied, “It is still possible to tip the iceberg, but it remains a secret.”
That is what I have for today. I hope you enjoyed reading the discussion. If there is something I missed comment below and I will sure to update the post. Until next time waddle on!
The State of Club Penguin (Dear Club Penguin…)
Dear Club Penguin,
Club Penguin has been the game of so many childhoods. When I joined seven years ago, it was perfect. The parties were memorable. The community who I met in 2013 were amazing. This was the best game ever. Now, let’s fast forward to today. Club Penguin is just a business with a million problems which are being completely ignored. Nearly every decision, from two month long parties to an extremely poor effort to take cheating seriously and to the nail in the coffin, and the reason I’m making this post, Project Super Secret. Maybe I’m missing something and just being unreasonable but this isn’t remotely close to what I thought would happen two years ago.
Heck, you would’ve thought the team would have learnt from the #SavetheClubPenguin protests in 2014. They haven’t. Now look at today. It’s ten times worse.
So, let’s start with takeovers. There’s nothing wrong with them. We loved the Marvel Superhero Takeover and the Star Wars Takeover, but when you’re bringing us 3 takeovers in a row, not even mentioning the fact that they last for two months, then there is something wrong. Is it just me or are FANS, yes, fans, are currently designing better rooms that Club Penguin? I don’t doubt their talent. That’s the reason we expect so much from them, because they have proved they can deliver amazing content. But the rooms are undecorated, left empty with the EXCUSE (not even the reason) that they were working on Project Super Secret, which we’ll talk about later.
I miss old Club Penguin, I really do. I miss those welcome screens on the right. But times have changed, and we have moved on. However, change is meant to be good. I ask you, who here (other than Dj Stores) actually prefers this new game in which the target audience is on average, nine years old? Club Penguin wasn’t designed to be create for kids. Even Rsnail said:
Want to learn a little secret about Club Penguin? I didn’t make it for kids. I made it for anyone that loves imagination.
Club Penguin is a world full of adventure, mystery and delight. You can be anything you want to be. A pirate that sails the seven seas, a thief that robs the pizza parlour, a ninja that masters an ancient legend, a secret agent, a barista or even an army that wages war on this little snow covered island.
I do not create kids games, I create games that kids can play. Club Penguin is for everyone
This was true. But why did Disney choose to switch their audience? Why are the parties LITERALLY logging on every day for a few minutes to click a few things. I thought they were meant to be challenging, which is what made them “educational”. I seriously think one of the main reasons for Club Penguin losing popularity was because they changed the age of their target audience. Club Penguin (I know you’re reading this – you better be anyway), have you forgotten Operation Blackout? You a put an entire year into that party and it was an entire success. Recreate that formula.
Time + Effort + Plot + Challenging Activities + Design = Views = Money (which is all you care about, right?) = A better Club Penguin for players and Disney alike
Operation Blackout ticked all those boxes and as such, it was the most popular party ever. If you can replicate that, even on a smaller scale, you could even get away with a two month long party too. Why do you think so many people, even Riyita, keep bringing it up?
Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not a big blogger, but when you’ve got people like Trainman1405 considering quitting a game which he has blogged about for many years, then there’s something wrong. However, I am part of the community (no matter what Dj Stores says), and I do hope you value our opinions. Megg promised that after Frozen, things will pick up and I really hope they do.
We’ll never get old Club Penguin back. It doesn’t matter how many protests or riots we create, it just won’t happen. But please don’t forget about the things which have made our game go on for over a decade. Don’t forget why our game is still here, and if I want to be really harsh –, actually, you probably know what I would say here and I don’t want to sound rude. I’m upset that Club Penguin is closing, but please carry these things on to the “new game” which we will talk about later.
Bugs, cheats, bots, exploits, you really just don’t seem to care. There are over 300 pages of bugs written on Trainman1405’s blogs, but the difference is, back in the day they would actually be fixed. You asked us to give you a list of bugs in mid-June. There were so many bugs written on that post. We did our part. It’s been two months, and I ask you how many of those have you actually taken the time to fix? I’m far from a game developer, but you’ve fixed bugs quickly and efficiently in the past. Why not have one person from your technical support team just work his/her way through the comments of that post and fixing the things that need to be fixed? I get that times are tough, but seriously, that bug where you click the safety survey and your screen freezes has been there for YEARS and don’t even get me started on the friends list. That’s just one of the many bugs on our island.
Oh, and cheating. This is a very…interesting topic. I’m not going to lie, however I conducted sort of an experiment on cheating. I called Club Penguin explaining to them that I cheated. You literally didn’t even ask for my penguin name but instead said “don’t do it again” and hung up on me. Let’s skip back a few years ago, to when I really cheated on my main account. I told you guys, and you investigated the account. The day I got that response was the day I got banned. How come, when you’re getting reports, you ignore them now but you never used to ignore them? That is not right. Heck, you even have people who you know cheating. Like, I know you have a small team and you’re the creators of one of the best virtual worlds, but you advertise yourself as a safe place to play, even though there are Nazi symbols on popular places. I’ve talked about bots in the past, and I thought you would be on to them, just like you were when there were new exploits in 2014, but how wrong I was.
And the last straw, and the reason I’m making this post, Project Super Secret. In 2013, when Project Super Secret was announced, we were all excited, no doubt, but there wasn’t anything necessarily “wrong” with the game. I loved 2013, not going to lie. So we were wondering what it was. A few weeks ago, Spike Hike announced it was Disney Mix.
YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME. You mean, you’ve been using the excuse that the downfall of the island would be worth it for a messaging app. I am extremely glad it’s referring to the new Club Penguin, but when was this change made? If you tackled the riots in December 2014, I wouldn’t have to be writing this right now. Anyway, let’s give you the benefit of the doubt and say that you began developing the new Club Penguin in 2013.
Was it worth it? That’s the question I ask you. This risk is such a big one. Couldn’t you be happy with what you had? Couldn’t you be happy with the wonderful times and memories which we shared in 2013? Why did you ask for more? Not to mention Club Penguin is going mobile-only. Actually, let me mention that there has been one day in 2014 where there were more players on mobile than there were on a computer.
Let’s start of with losing all our items. This was outrageous, but do you want to know what really makes me mad? You never told us until August 2016. Why? Did you want people to continue buying memberships without them knowing what’s about to happen? We should’ve known. We should have known.
Club Penguin is a live service and can be discontinued at anytime.
That is literally all we knew, and it was small-text. Did you really expect us not to be upset? Of course we’re upset! I dare to say that had you have told us this last year, you could have saved a lot of disappointment and anger. Oh, and thanks for giving us Project Super Secret sneak peeks. For once I agree with a racist person, smaller bloggers do deserve something. I’m not saying that so I get more views, I’m saying that because I’d get acknowledged. I’ve literally lost my motivation to blog, which is part of the reason I’m no longer creating about 20 posts a month. In 2013/2014, I used to have Polo Field following my blog. I felt as if I was actually being heard. For god sake, if I didn’t send this to you, would you really be reading it? It’s shocking when COMPANIES are interacting with us more than you. Oh, and we were hoping that the launch of Disney Mix would mean more interaction, in case you were wondering.
You need to clear up Project Super Secret. You need to make a post on the blog about it and come more clean. Because at the moment, here’s how I see it. I see that you have completely neglected our island under the excuse that you’ve been working on something that has been delayed by a year. I see that you’re going to mess Club Penguin up. You need to go on the blog, and you need to do a survey. That’s what Club Penguin needs.
- How old are you?
- Do you prefer mobile or desktop?
- What would you rate the following parties
Because if you don’t believe us, hopefully you’ll believe your own research and statistics. This is only a quarter of what I have to say about Project Super Secret but you probably know what we have to say. Why does it take me to explain it to you? My question to you, Club Penguin, is why you chose to neglect our island. 2015 was the downfall. It really was. I struggle to say this, but if I was Spike Hike at the time, I would have not created Project Super Secret. You already have the app and desktop version. But it’s happened, so let us just hope for the best as I’m talking about a game which hasn’t even finished the development stages yet.
Oh, and going back to the community, thanks for “passing these ideas on to the rest of the team” and thanks for “investigating these issues”. Do you actually do that? Do you really listen to the players? Let’s be honest, the younger audience didn’t ask for a Frozen Party for the third time. Someone pointed out how kids were more likely to comment on the blog than send in an email and there weren’t “hundreds” of comments on the blog to return the Frozen Party. I really hope Megg’s promise (the rest of the year will be good) is true. I also hope I get a response, something more than just another copied and pasted reply.
I’m busy criticising the game and you might be thinking “the community makes our game the game it is”. A few years ago, Spike Hike retweeted this tweet. It’s no longer what “we make it”. Now the team decides, and they’ve been making some really terrible decisions. How are we supposed to #SavetheClubPenguin when we’re not even being heard? I’m not even sure if you’re going to just print out a copy and pasted reply and send it back to me. Address these concerns, please.
And you’re also probably thinking, wow Torres, you must really hate this game. Well, no! I freaking love this game. That’s why I’m making this post now. I’d just hate to see it dismissed as one of Disney’s many mobile apps because Club Penguin is more than just that.
Club Penguin is Closing Down (Investigation with Evidence)
MAJOR UPDATE: I say with no joy in my heart that this post is correct. Club Penguin will be closing down on March 29th 2017 and my prediction from over half a year ago remains strong. If you want to know why this is happening, read the third article of this post.
Rumours have been circulating for many years about Club Penguin closing down. For a long time, there’s been no credible proof of them being true, until now. Today, Club Penguin Mountains is going to analyse the facts and the rumours to present the sad proof that Club Penguin is shutting down.
We have analysed some long-lost articles , the information given exclusively to us and more importantly, the information given by Spike Hike.
My Latest Club Penguin Haul
Very recently, I received some Club Penguin merchandise in the post at a fairly cheap price. Seeing how I’ve not done a Merchandise Memorial post in many months, I thought now would be a good time to feature some merchandise! I also got a lot of codes with the plushes so expect a large number of giveaways soon.
Here is what I received.
Each plushie cost me roughly about £2, which I think is rather good value seeing how puffles now cost over ten times that price.
If you ever got the opportunity, I would highly recommend you get a few puffles and penguins whilst they’re selling at cheaper prices than usual.
Scariness of the Halloween Party
The Halloween Party has occurred on our island every year since the game opened in 2005. Ever since Megg confirmed the party will be returning, many players have become very excited. However, I’ve looked back at some of the most recent Halloween Parties in the game and compared them to “Old CP”. With October dawning upon us quickly, I reckon that the team would’ve begun designing the party, so now seems like a good time to put my points forward.
Is the Halloween Party as scary as it used to be?
Discussion: Bacon Cinnamon Roll Pin
Many weeks ago, Club Penguin got in a conversation with a leading bakery, Cinnabon. During all this drama, Club Penguin posted a pin which quickly caught the attention of the entire community, in particular, Bacon. The unreleased pin was the Bacon Cinnamon Roll pin, which looks like this:
There have been many demands from the community for this to become a real pin. In this discussion, we shall analyse what the response was from Club Penguin and some other ludicrous suggestions from us, the players of the game. Let’s start of with the response.
Rumour has it that this pin cannot be added due to “healthy eating reasons”. To that I say, objection! Has Club Penguin forgotten about their previous pins? Here’s a few released pins to remind them.
So, Club Penguin, how can you say that the Cinnamon Roll pin cannot be released for “eating healthy reasons” when you’ve released cotton candy pins, ice cream pins, chocolate pins. That’s just the start of my list! My point is that your reason is not a valid one but at least it’s not as crazy as some other things I’ve heard about this pin.
One player (Dj Stores) thought that it would be best if Club Penguin collaborated with Cinnabon to give this pin out whenever someone bought a bacon cinnamon roll in real life. I’m sorry, but that’s flat out discrimination. Buying bacon is forbidden by some religions, and the fact that Club Penguin would even consider making a pin exclusive for the people who do buy bacon? I would, no doubt, be less angry at the team for bringing back a Frozen Party for the third time.
Either way, it seems that Club Penguin should be able to make this a real pin and I’m not sure the real reason for why they’re not doing that.
Community Appreciation – Day 22: FriendJad
Welcome to the twenty second day of Community Appreciation Month! Today I have chosen FriendJad.
FriendJad doesn’t create any Club Penguin content but what he does do is support others. He’s an extremely nice guy to speak to. There isn’t much I can say today but FriendJad definitely deserves to be recognised for his friendliness and for his supportiveness.
