    Community Profile: #CPReunion, Squeky10, Orangeee, Riyita, #Blogtober, Jolly Penguin

    Hey everyone,

    This month, Club Penguin celebrated its 11th birthday, so lots of players have created videos, blog posts, art. You name it! I’d also like to cover #CPReunion, and of course wrap up this post with another interview. So let’s just get right into the Club Penguin Mountains October Community Profile!

    cvlenbeumaayqnu

    I’m going to start this post with a bit of a sad note. Since King89698 became Penguin of the Week, you are probably aware that he recently passed away, which is very sad. I’d like to thank Pingu15cool and Rosytilly for informing the community and putting their talents into remembering King. However, I’d really like to thank Orangeee, who made the header above as well as logos which were used by countless people throughout the community. I’ve nominated him for Penguin of the Week as this was an amazing thing for him to do. I suggest that you do to! The chances of becoming Penguin of the Week are tiny, but since Orange deserves it, if we all nominate him, we can make it happen, just like how we made King Penguin of the Week!

    Art

    I asked two really talented artists if they would be happy with me sharing their Halloween artwork, and they said yes! You may recognise this first artist’s name as I made a post a few months ago featuring one of her artworks. Well, Pingping4069 made a Club Penguin Halloween drawing this month which I’d like to share with you! She described it as the “longest Club Penguin Halloween fanart she’s done”.

    I must admit, it looks absolutely amazing! She also drew a really impressive portrait of PH, the Puffle Handler. Take a look!

    This drawing looks so realistic and I bet you want to see more artwork from Ping! You can do so by checking out her DevinArt page and her Twitter account, where she posts all her drawings. These are only two of many more!

    The next artwork I would like to show you is from an artist, you may be familiar with, but like with all artists, if you’re not, you should definitely check them out! Squeky10 gave me permission to feature a few of his artworks! Take a look at his latest Halloween one!

    I find it absolutely spooktacular! If you’re interested, Squeky also put a speedpaint of this artwork on his YouTube channel, which I will link you to! Before that, here’s another one of his artworks!

    I love this art style! Along with drawings, Squeky also does Club Penguin animations and digitalisations, so be sure to also check out his Twitter as well as his YouTube channel!

    A good friend of mine, Michael56292, sent me his 11th Anniversary Fan Art! Check it out!

    This definitely is not as good as the first two we’ve seen, but I really like it! I love the concept of having each and every anniversary hat that we’ve had surrounding colourful text. The 10th Party Hat looks the coolest, in my opinion as it looks like the real thing. Thanks for sharing this awesome artwork!

    I’d also like to thank Yellow35166 for creating the Club Penguin Mountains logo which you see here! It will be included in the Music Jam header which will be published as part of the November update!

    Blogs

    In September’s Community Profile, I only featured blog posts which I liked. Well, today I’m going to feature a new blog, a blog series and a blog post which I really liked, but it is one which you most likely have already read.

    cu5ghdmwiaeed8u

    Blogtober has been a series on The Blue Blog in which Blue21102, the owner, creates a daily journal of life as a penguin. It’s a really awesome series with lots of humour inserted into it and lots of chances for players to get involved. By the time you’re reading this, Blogtober will be over, however, you can still catch up and Blue21102 has other amazing posts such as detailed, in-depth discussions!

    You may not have heard of Club Penguin Seasons as Thankful only started the blog a few weeks ago. As such, the pages are still being worked on. However, Thankful strives at uploading daily content. Unlike other blogs which post things such as the new pin or the new newspaper, Thankful has short, unique content which gets straight to the point. Usually you might learn something about Club Penguin’s history which you never knew before.

    You will almost certainly be familiar with Trainman1405 and his blog, Club Penguin Memories. He’s not posted in a while, however at the beginning of this month, he released an extremely informative (not that I’d use any of this information – of course not!) post on hacking Club Penguin accounts. It’s a rather long post, with it being over 4000 words, but it truly is worth the read because I enjoyed it and I am sure that you will too!

    To celebrate the 11th anniversary of our game, Riyita asked a few players to share their favourite memories, and he put it all into one special video! It really captured what the community liked. He also uploaded it to his website, Club Penguin Space. Imagine this! A video about the community in a post about the community in a post about the community. Check it out!

    cp101

    Club Penguin 101 is a series created by BeefyPenguin9 which gives you lots of information about a certain topic in Club Penguin history. It has lasted for five seasons, however this twenty four minute episode is the final ever CP 101. Beefy talks about life as a penguin from 2014 till 2016 and covers the parties we’ve had.

     

     

    #CPReunion

    We’re about to cover Club Penguin Reunion, the biggest party of the year, however I’d like to start by showing you a video of the event taken by Jojimaxcp. Jojimax was in the rooms where the moderators were, which might seem simple, but the server was really full!

    Other noteworthy channels:

    #CPReunion

    unnamed

    Without a doubt, Club Penguin Reunion was the most anticipated event of the year. Jdan1001 hinted it’s return, and it was such a great success last year. This time it was not as great, after all it was invaded by bots, but penguins such as Businessmoose, Chrisdog93 and Sqaishey were sighted. However, Megg, Deamama, Pirates, SheepVSGravity and a few other moderators spent an entire hour with us!

    The story begins two hours before the event is planned to begin (21:30 PST) at the Coffee Shop. Deamama popped in for an early visit and I got a postcard from her! Many of us chose to stay in the Coffee Shop as we anticipated that the server would fill up quickly. After all, Megg did talk about it on the What’s New blog. Unfortunately, I disconnected an hour before the event began and couldn’t get back in to the Coffee Shop!

    cpreunion

    A few friends gathered at a spot in the Town waiting for the event to begin. When it did begin, the normal happened. We all split up in chaos trying to get a postcard from the moderator which we liked. In particular, I wanted to add a Businessmoose postcard to my collection, but I heard he left early after being surrounded by bots. He was surprised by them, but was not angry at them, which was an interesting reaction to have!

    bots

    Many rooms were full and it was risky leaving a room to find a moderator. There were bots filling up the server and it very quickly became clear that this party was not going to be as good as last year. Even a few of the hosts admitted that! There were no sightings of Rsnail, Screenhog, Polo Field, Spike Hike or Billybob, which disappointed many. It just didn’t have that awesome feel to it, but it still was a great party. The hashtag was also trending on Twitter. Along with my postcard from Deamama, I got one from the person who copied content from Saraapril.

    chrisdog93

    I’d like to thank all of the Club Penguin Reunion staff for making this event possible, along with the former and current staff members who took time out of their busy schedule to interact with us.

    Interview of the Month

    You may be aware of the Drama Diaries I created on Bobby7506, but before that, I interviewed him for Community Profile. It’s a bit late to change that, and I promised you an interview. I’m very reluctant to publish this, but Bobby and I have made peace and we both apologised. He admitted that he was wrong and just angry. So let’s please thank Bobby7506 for this months interview!

    Torres 126: 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, even though we had an “update” very recently. What are your thoughts regarding this?

    Bobby7506: I’m quite excited but very nervous to experience PSS. I have a feeling it we’ll never be as good as Club Penguin. I also worry for blogs as its hard to picture how us bloggers will manage to make new posts on a new game that we’re all unsure of.

    Torres 126: If you were in charge of Club Penguin, what do you do?

    Bobby7506: If I was in charge of club penguin, I would add a feature which allows you to get rid of inactive friends on your buddy list so you could make new ones.

    Torres 126: How has Club Penguin impacted your life?

    Bobby7506: Club Penguin has impacted my life so much. It was my childhood and everyone used to play it. I’ve bought a lot of memberships and toys and I’ve always been into it. Club Penguin is the only thing I’ve ever been fully addicted to. It’s made me who I am today 🙂

    Torres 126: One of the things that you are working on is “Jolly Penguin”. Could you please tell us a little more about this?

    Bobby7506: EEEEK! Okay, okay! So I guess I could tell you some sneak peeks of Jolly Penguin and what we hope to happen with it 🙂 This project was made purposely to bring the community together and celebrate happiness. Christmas is one of the most joyful things around and I thought we could party and celebrate with the theme of it. I also liked the fact it comes once a year and there are 4 parties. The last party (finale) will be the big grand one and I hope as many penguins join us on that celebration.

    Torres 126: And finally, is there anything else that you would like to say?

    Bobby7506: I’d just like to say that this community is amazing and the amount of work we create and new things we discover and try is breath taking. I’ve made some amazing friends and I will never forget them.

    [twitter-follow screen_name=’Bobby7506CP’]

    I am part of the Jolly Penguin team, and we really aim to make this idea a reality! I’ll keep you updated! I did originally have more content about Jolly Penguin, but unfortunately I deleted it. Once again, please thank Bobby7506!

    I’m sorry that this post isn’t as “solid” as the last one. I originally didn’t even intend to upload it, but in the end, I decided to do so. I’d like to give a big thank you to you for reading this far! I’d also like to give a big thank you to everyone I included in this post!

    Tonight I’ll be uploading Halloween Panic. Until then, have a great day!

    Waddle on!

    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!

    Art:

    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!

    This slideshow requires JavaScript.

    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!

    Penny’s DeviantArt: http://penny2415.deviantart.com/

    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!

    This slideshow requires JavaScript.

    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!

    Videos:

    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”.

    ctjsjk4wcaa-amr

    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!

    Blogs:

    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! 

    riyitas-holiday-party

    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!

    top-10-memories

    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!

    This slideshow requires JavaScript.

    [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! 🙂

    Discussion: Exclusives Shared by Club Penguin

    Hi penguins,

    In my last post, I discussed the hacking of Riyita. If you have not done so already, I suggest you read it and you can do so by clicking here. Before I start the post, I want to hint an extremely rare but exciting series which I might begin. I’m not going to reveal anything about it now, but it’s not what you would expect it to be so stay tuned. Now onto today’s topic.

    So, around the time of the hack on Riyita, an email was leaked which showed conversation between Riyita and Megg. The email explains how and where he gets his “exclusives” which literally cannot even be found on the CP Wiki, and they have everything. Very quickly, it was concluded that he was getting them from Club Penguin directly. However, I was surprised when I first read this email. This is because he went to the Club Penguin Headquarters/Office a while back and I expected he made some sort of deal where Club Penguin would provide him with information for his website, Club Penguin Space. This was the email.

    Email from Megg

    That was the email sent by Bobbi who is Megg on Club Penguin. You may be thinking that this is fake, however I can confirm it’s not as I will be showing you a reply from Megg about this later. Firstly, let me tell you my thoughts.

    I think it’s fair to say he did make some deal with Club Penguin as Megg says that he requested the assets. The email also seems so casual, like Riyita has been receiving a lot of information. Now, although I do mainly discussions and ideas on here, I know that it’s a big deal when a website gets an exclusive first. Before this site closed down, I was posting every piece of news about the game of Club Penguin. Getting an exclusive was really hard and rare, but here’s Megg just giving them out.

    So Megg has claimed that she is trying to set something up so bloggers will get a list of information. Hopefully each blog gets something different regarding #ProjectSuperSecret, but I’m not so sure. It’s been three months since that email was set and I don’t see what’s so difficult about helping bloggers get information. Get a list of bloggers, start sending out emails.

    Also, why Riyita? Sure, he visited the CP HQ, but so did another user called Pup1one. He didn’t make any deal. Perhaps it’s because he has a large audience. Trainman1405, who blogs on Club Penguin Memories, does also but he has confirmed that he doesn’t get any exclusives. It seems a bit like favouritism to me and I’m not the only one who thinks that too. 

    Some think you need to visit the HQ to get the “special treatment” but as I said, how come Pup1one hasn’t got any exclusives? Is it just because he went before November or is it because his blog doesn’t get as many views as Club Penguin wants? Also, I can’t believe they actually agreed to Riyita’s request for the “assets”. It seems highly unlikely a blogger could just ask and then they get it. The team hardly acknowledges blogs*.

    *Can I just take a moment to thank Polo Field, a former Club Penguin staff member. Polo Field actually even followed this blog when it didn’t even have that many views. He also followed a lot of other Club Penguin fan-blogs, and I’m sure that that meant a lot to the blog owners because it certainly did to me.

    Next I’m going to discuss Megg’s reply to this issue. Surprisingly, she responded quickly even though she rarely speaks about Club Penguin related issues. This is what she posted on her personal Twitter account.

    megg's reply

    Before I begin my criticism, let’s just pretend that everything Bobbi/Megg is saying is true. I think it’s great that they care more about Club Penguin blogging throughout the community and I completely back this idea, except for the few problems I am about to highlight. I recently read that Billybob did something similar back in his time, but I can’t say that for certain. There currently is a lack of communication between the older community who are the ones who often run blogs and Club Penguin. So, here are my problems, firstly starting off with this Riyita issue.

    Honestly, how long does it take to compile a list of blogs to give spoilers to? Me, Riyita and Trainman, that’s all you need to give spoilers to. It’s been three months and they’re still planning, although even though nothing has officially been planned. Seems slightly fishy to me. Also, why did Club Penguin want to hide it? I think that Club Penguin knew that this would be fishy which is why they kept it hidden. People want to know the ideas planned as this is something big. Unfortunately, Club Penguin had to make their move and release the truth (assuming that this is all true, even though I’ve spotted a few contradictions) since the email was leaked.

    Also, are we talking about Club Penguin here or just Megg? I phoned Club Penguin twice so that I could hear the answer from different people and none of them knew about this scheme despite the fact they claimed that they knew about blogging. 

    I am also concerned with how this would turn out. How limited would that list of blogs be? I expect loads of blogs would be disappointed if their name is not on that list. Project Super Secret is what people will be wanting to know about the most, and Club Penguin has released so little that I doubt they’ll give loads of details for blogs to finish. Then I expect people would complain that this blog is getting a major update on Project Super Secret, yet their blog is getting to know the pin for next week. Surely it’s better for Club Penguin to post something like this.

    This was in the “Best of 2015” video. It’s still a sneak peek, no doubt. But this way blogs could come up with their own unique theories and post them online as I have seen so many people done, including this blog. To see what I think a few of the question marks are, click here. Using this method, you could avoid a whole lot of disappointment. Don’t get me wrong, I still love Megg’s scheme but there are lots of flaws. Hopefully these have been addressed in the three months Club Penguin has had to plan this scheme; probably more since it was three months since Riyita got his assets and they would’ve needed to plan that.

    Thank you very much for reading this discussion which has reached over a thousand words. I did mention that I planned a third and final discussion relating to Riyita but I’ve managed to forget what that idea was. If I remember, I will post it but if I don’t, I think that I’ll kick off this new series I’m planning which I’m sure you’ll be really excited to hear about. Also, for those of you on holiday like me, enjoy it!

    Discussion: Riyita’s Hacking

    Hey everyone,

    So this discussion as well as the next two discussions are all going to be in some way related to Riyita. Recently some drama sparked up throughout the community after Riyita claimed to be hacked. Today I’m going to be discussing whether or not that’s true and in the future discussions, I will be talking about something which is kind of a sub-topic to Riyita. You’ll see what I mean when it comes out.

    Firstly, who is Riyita? I’m sure that some of you may have heard of him, but if you haven’t he is the owner of Club Penguin Space (http://clubpenguinspace.com). He has visited the Club Penguin HQ and is a well known person throughout the community – not always for good reasons as you’ll soon find out.

    Last weekend, an anonymous person made this post on his blog. At least, that’s what is being claimed. Please note that the post which I am about to share with you has now been deleted so you can no longer read it on Riyita’s blog.

    This is a threat from a fan who says that they have hacked Riyita’s email, Club Penguin account as well as his website. He claims he’s doing it because Riyita is un-interactive with his followers. Before I reveal the option of this hacking business being false, this is what I have to say about this post assuming that some fan did actually carry out the hack.

    Regardless of Riyita not being very interactive with his fans, hacking is the wrong thing to do. Also, let’s compare it to some other bloggers. Take Polo Field for example. Although he has left Disney now, whilst he was a moderator for Club Penguin he couldn’t communicate with us. He was able to years ago, but for a while of his time at Club Penguin, he was not allowed to tweet to us or anything. Did someone hack him? No. Sure, he was a moderator and all but we learnt to accept it. Why can’t we do the same with Riyita? For all we know, Club Penguin may not let him talk since he visited the HQ. Some people suggest that he actually works for Club Penguin.

    Personally, I think that that theory is most unlikely. I mean, what are the chances of an ordinary blogger being a moderator? Granted, he does have close connections to the team and you will see more of that tomorrow.

    Next, I want to mention another possible theory that has been going around the community. What if Riyita was only pretending to be hacked and he actually hacked himself? That seems crazy, but it does kind of make sense for a few reasons. This is a theory someone posted on Twitter which I would like to share before I reveal the reasons why I think Riyita might have benefitted by hacking himself.

    Before I talk more about the message, I just want to comment on this whole “hating Riyita” thing. Personally, I do not hate him but I respect him. As a blogger, I do know how much time it takes to update a website. Although I personally don’t make money from my website, I don’t see anything wrong in doing so. Riyita has worked hard on his website and I believe it is wrong to criticize him for getting money from that site. After all, Trainman1405 does and I’ve seen no complaints there. Loads of people dislike Riyita and I don’t get why.

    One user believes that people hate Riyita because he doesn’t give credit to his sources on his site. I will have a detailed post about this soon. But I mean, come on, is hating Riyita for that small reason okay? I don’t think so. Also, the reason I am sharing a lot of tweets is because from what I can tell, most of the drama sparked up in the Club Penguin Twitter community as well as the blogging community for reasons you will see in the next discussion.

    Another way for this to be a win-win situation is what Trainman said. Riyita probably would have gotten loads of views. However, I disagree. Riyita even closed his website for several hours. This doesn’t add up. Why would Riyita close his website if he did quit to get more views and therefore money? If I was him, I would have kept it open but he only kept it open for a few hours.

    So what do I believe? I think that the chances of a hacker hacking his website, blog and Club Penguin account and not doing any damage other than making a post is highly unlikely. I also have no idea what kind of hacker would confess to making a mistake just a bit later after claiming he made a hack. So that suggests that I think Riyita did make up a hack but I don’t see why he would do that as you can see from my last paragraph. In the next discussion, I will have a bit more evidence to present forward another possible theory on why this hack took place.

    Why the hack happened remains a mystery and who did the hack is an even bigger mystery. There are numerous theories but Riyita isn’t talking. He wants this issue hidden as he deleted all posts regarding this incident on his website. It was recently Safe Internet Day and this is a good reminder to keep your password strong and secure.
