Pink Dominates The Dock

As promised, the decorations at the Dock have changed- but I definately preferred them as they were before! They look like a larger version of the ones at the Beach, covered in pink! Ahhhhh!!!!!! Thankfully, they didn’t change the backstage to match, and I think that every different theme across the island will have it’s turn at the Dock, so just wait for your favourite one to come round- then you can PARTY DOWN! Anyway here’s a picture:

When you stand on the stage the music starts up and the lights start flashing. Not a great colour, but still a great party! I wonder what’ll arrive at the Dock next?

Until next time…

Waddle on!

New Features At Last

Finally, after several months of excited anticipation, the new features have arrived! And let me tell you… There’s lots of them (more than we thought), and they’re fantastic… Well… all but one, in my opinion- but you might disagree.

The first new feature you’ll notice is the new login and server selection. If you had penguins or passwords saved onto your computer, I’m afraid you’ll have to resave them. A pain, I know, but easily tolerable! Anyway, here’s what it looks like:

The green is a little putrid, if you ask me; and that is the only thing I have found wrong with this feature. If they’d’ve kept the old ‘faces’ thing, I would have preferred it: the green lines are just ugly! If you click ‘more servers,’ it shows you all the servers in alphabetical order. So it looks like there is no longer servers for different countries.

This could make a lot of the front page servers more popular, and maybe diminish the popularity of ones low down in the alphabet such as Mammoth. We’ll have to wait and see!

Probably the second one you’ll notice once you’re logged on is the new Penguin Mail system, which is a lot different to the old postcard system.

The first bit of mail you get will be an introductory message, from which you can recieve your free blue mailbag:

Now, of course, for one of the most anticipated of all the new features: the new clothes selection! It is much the same as the mods said it would be like:

When you open up your player card, the clothes will fade in.

Now for a small, but reasonably noticable one: the spyphone above the map (only for agents). The mods probably realised no-one used the spyphone when it was stuck in their player card- the map was easier- so they moved it! And I have to say- it looks good where it is:

Now for the new igloo setting- it’s much easier to see from a non-member’s igloo (ignore the puffles- they’re mine and it’s some sort of glitch):

If you open up the ‘Member’s Igloos’ section on the map, it doesn’t just show you a list anymore:

If you hover your mouse over a picture of an igloo, it will tell you who’s it is.

There is a tiny little change wit hteh fund button on a friend’s player card- it is now a question mark:

Finally, there have been various changes to the igloo edit options on the right side of your igloo screen.

One is very small: as a post to ‘open’ and ‘close’ igloo when you click the padlock, it now says ‘lock’ and ‘unlock.’

Another is also small, but more noticable:

They’ve replaced the ‘stop edit’ button with a ‘save’ button!

They’ve changed the background while you’re editing to a weird grid thing:

They’ve scrapped the old ‘organised’ storage (thank goodness) and adopted something similar to the new clothes selection:

And they’ve scrapped the entire old design of the storage, to be replaced with a ‘cleaner’ (uglier) design:

Well, I think that’s finally it! Wow- that’s a lot of new features (other than a few small changes to text size and font here and there)- looks like Disney’s trying to change a lot! Sorry this post is so long- but if you think reading it took a long time, imagine what it would be like for me writing it! Well, I’m worn out after writing this post, but I’m glad all the new features came at last! Does this mean CPIP is over?

Until next time…

P.S. If you’re wondering how I had enough time to write all this, I have a day of school today and tomorrow because of a ‘Unison’ strike! YES!

Coins For Change Update

The mods have released more a video about what happened with the coins for change money! For those who don’t remember or weren’t there, Coins For Change was a sort of charity appeal, where we could decide how much of a real $1,000,000 dollars should go to each of the three charities by how much money got donated. Donators got a card and a bell (a very popular, sound making item). For more information, click here for the official page on the Club Penguin site (that’s where the video is).
Until next time…

Igloo Contest Prize Change- The Contest Gets Juicy!

The moderators are calling the Medieval Party the ‘Biggest Party ever!’ If you ask me, the Fall Fair still wins hands down! But there is no doubt- this is one great party! To celebrate, the mods have already made it last longer, and now, they’ve made the contest the biggest one ever! 20 winners will now be picked- the top 10 will win 25,000 coins- 15,000 more than the usual; and the other 10 will get 15,000! So the stakes are very high! If you haven’t entered already- do it now!
Until next time…
Waddle on!

PST Changed (Again)

Guess what? PST (Penguin Standard Time)¬†has changed back again! For over a week it’s been broken (although the clock’s been repaired) and has been running on everyone’s local time! Finally, it has returned to normal! Thank goodness! I don’t want to end up even more confused!

Until next time…

Waddle on!

‘Bigscreen’ Club Penguin

‘Bigscreen?’ More like small screen! If we want adjustable sized Club Penguin screens, we all go on the swf version, don’t we? Well some genious at the Club Penguin moderators office (note the sarcasm) decided we shouldn’t have that choice anymore- and made all the Club Penguin screens that way! I’m not saying it’s not good to be able to adjust your screen size and still play- in fact it’s quite fun- but they should still have the normal Club Penguin screen except that it can shrink as well just by dragging… I dunno… a little ‘x’ in the corner of the screen! Anyway, the point I’m trying to get through to you (in my rambling way lol), is that the idea of changing all the Club Penguin screens ‘bigscreen’ is a bad one! Although I’m sure we’ll all get used to it, and I know some of you liked the swf more because of that, but I, and I’m sure lots of other people as well, preferred the bigger one that has bigger writing and bigger pictures. Anyway, we’ll all get used to it and then it will be normal CP instead of the old one!
Until next time…

P.S. If you didn’t get it, the point of this post was to tell you all that the moderators changed the size of the Club Penguin screen.
P.P.S. Also I was voicing my complaints about it!
P.P.P.S. Waddle waddle!
P.P.P.P.S. I’m feeling hyper! VERY HYPER!

Penguin Standard Time Has Changed?????

This is so confusing! First there was that time change in america a few months back and everyone went to my party an hour early: and now this! The new Penguin Standard Time corresponds exactly with my time- so Club Penguin is turning even more British (yey!)! I even heard rumours that the BBC (British BroadCasting) were going to buy it (although I doubt they would have gone to all that trouble of that disney stuff if they had)! Anyway, in my previous post, the one about my party tomorrow, I was using old PST, so it is 6:30pm in new PST (or GMT (Greenwich Mean Time(often called UMT(Universal Mean Time))) as it is technically known as (lol a lot of brackets!))! To help you work out the time differences (if you need help), the new PST is eight hours ahead of the old PST!
Until next time…
