Pirate Party II

Hello everyone! This is Clonez, admin of skydays147 .wordpress .com. The pirate party is back in town! As many of you have already known, the party was introduced for the first time last year and almost made another appearance in November 2007 because of the Choose Your Own Party Poll. I just want to say that I made the exact same post about the party a year ago. Of course now my posts are alot more detailed because I want to appeal to the public. To read it click here. It has actually been a year since I started this site, with many devastating events that happened in the past. I want to honor all my friends from the start and my new friends now. People come and go a lot during a year! Okay, let me get back on subject so I can give the party rating. Many recent penguins might enjoy the party, while personally I do not. But I will give an honest rating that is not based on repitition. Of course, the thought put in this party was a complete zero on the star rating since the only thing new is the trail of red dashes and the mural at the dock. But I have to be honest, the party is kind of fun… the battling pirate ships at the snow forts are even better the second time around. I love to watch the nonmembers battle each other because they sound so real and into it. The mural is a good addition to the party that was added this year. If only the chat bar tab was not blocking it, I could enjoy it more, but it is sort of like a timeline from left to right showing the “significant” events in saving Rockhopper. For the items brought back by Rockhopper, it is definitely a nonmember win. The striped red/black tee is so much better than the pot. Rockhopper calls it the “rare flower pot”. No wonder it’s so rare; it is because nobody wants it! I call it the can of dirt because that is what it literally is! You can’t make it grow anything in it. Its just a can of dirt! This is just a big scam that Club Penguin made. I can not believe they are charging 300 coins for it! This is probably the worst furniture item in the history of Club Penguin! If you want to take my advice, don’t buy it!

Overall Party Rating: ***

This Week’s Wackiness

Hello everyone! This is Clonez, administrator of skydays147.wordpress.com. It has been a while since my last post, and I hope many of my frequent readers did not think I quit or anything. Anyway, about the Club Penguin Clock: there has been a lot of trouble going on with it, as you can see. When I checked my igloo the day that it broke, the grandfather clock, nor the hanging wall clock, were broken. When I checked the wristwatches (the gold one brought by Rockhopper [yes, I have that] and the silver one in the clothing catalog), they were not going crazy either. Well actually, it is hard to tell because they are so detailed, but I got a close up and they were not spinning uncontrollably. In the penguin times that was released on Thursday, there was a picture of a red penguin looking at his watch which apparently, from the detailed movements, was spinning in circles. I took this quote from the penguin times:

Meanwhile, some other clocks in Club Penguin have started going haywire as a result of being connected to the Clock Tower – Penguin Times.

It is obvious that Club Penguin did not circuit everything, because they said “some”. But why are the wristwatches mentioned. Actually, the wristwatches were always broken. They never change time on your penguin when you are wearing them. I heard on some website that the day before the clock broke, it was switched to eastern standard time, which is three hours later. Is this for real? I never actually saw it, but that is believe-able for me.

In other news, there is the new homepage. Personally, I don’t like it as much as the old one. The older one was a lot more organized and I really liked the style and the way it looked. This one is basically just a giant photo with some captions under it. It is also a lot harder to find pages in the new homepage. Everything is all jumbled up and in random spots, which makes difficult. I also miss having the Club Penguin Poll and the Blog right in front of me when I go on. Another thing about the home page is that the ninja is gone. Do you think that is a sign that Club Penguin rejected that idea? Does Club Penguin have other plans instead of using a ninja? What do you think?

Also what came out this week was the new furniture catalog. I really enjoy the farm theme that they chose because it really freshens up the igloo. My favorite piece of furniture this month would be the vegetable garden. There is a wide variety of plants to chose from and it looks great. The only problem with it is that you can not tilt it to face one direction. when you press left or right, the sides expand for some reason…? I don’t know what that is all about but it seems pretty pointless. A lot of penguins are enjoying the new security camera. I think that it should have been released only to agents in the PSA because it seems to fit the theme very well. It goes along with the CPIP theme, and it is almost the exact one on the home page. I think there is a problem with the tracking. It is supposed to follow your mouse, but when you put your mouse pointer right in front of the camera, it is not facing straight, instead, it is on a slant towards the right. Pretty unusual…

There have been lots of problems with the furniture when it came out. There was this really nasty, wicked bug that Club Penguin caught at the end of the weekend. The bug made it so that when you buy a new item in the catalog, it would not show up in your inventory and when you had a new item in your igloo and you bright it back to your inventory, it would disappear. This is pretty annoying, because I kept losing coins whenever I tried to buy something. I probably lost ten thousand coins because of this over the weekend. Of course, nobody is worried about this now-a-days because everyone hacks/glitches their coins on them. Personally, I am one to follow by the rules, but let them do whatever they want. Okay, back on the subject. The bug is now completely erased. It took me a while before I got the guts to buy another piece of furniture, but it is in fact gone. I sent an email of complaint to Club Penguin over the weekend about the coins disappearing. It seems that they take these kinds of emails very seriously and so here is their response:

After upgrading our servers, we experienced a glitch where certain accounts appeared to be missing some clothing, pins, backgrounds and colors that had been collected. We’ve fixed the problem now, and your inventory should be back to normal. If you are still having problems with your inventory, please reply back to us and we will be happy to look into it further. I have now added 4000 coins to your penguin account ‘Clonez’ so that you can purchase some of the items you have lost. I hope that this helps. If there is anything further we can help you with please do not hesitate to contact us. -Club Penguin Support

Okay, the point is that if you are one of the victims of this bug, it is a good idea to contact Club Penguin because they will give you your money back, like they did for me.

I just wanted to let all the frequent viewers know that he just got a really cool program called flash, and he is making an animated series with it that he told he about a week ago. He said that he will be on this site every time to time to check in and read comments, posts, and what-not. He will be on Club Penguinand he will usually be on the server, Frozen.

Adventure Play

Hello! This is Clonez, admin of skydays147 .wordpress .com. The main attraction this week in Club Penguin is the new play! Alot of the decorations resemble the Indiana Jones movie Raiders of the Lost Ark. The game used many of the well-remembered elements from the film and I really enjoy their version because it was really cute in a way and it is something that was not expected. The picture at the top left shows ice cream being thrown from holes on both sides. This was actually one of the traps used in the movie when Indiana Jones was searching for the golden idol in an ancient temple in Peru. Of course, the movie used darts that would kill in one shot, but the Club Penguin staff would not want bloody, dead penguins lying around. At the bottom right is the most remembered element from the movie: the deadly, giant boulder. Of course, if they were doing this jungle theme, they would have to use this classic scene. I thought there were fake snakes hanging on the left side of the stage. If you are an Indiana Jones fan like myself, you would know that he is really afraid of snakes. Unfourtunately when you look closer, they are actually just vines. Snakes would have been perfect for this play, though. The picture on the bottom left is of a penguin flying through the air in a mine cart. This made me think for awhile, then I realized why Club Penguin put this in! It is so clever! If you did not know, Steven Spielberg directed the Indiana Jones movies. He also directed the movie ET, which released in 1982. Do you remember that one scene with the kid flying in the air with ET on a bicycle? Club Penguin used that scene in the play. I don’t think they had an apparant reason why, but it is so clever! 

I feel like getting something off of my chest here. Has anyone noticed the note that was put on the door of Rockhopper’s ship? Well, it disappeared a few days ago and was replaced with one by G. I am really confused about why Club Penguin thinks penguins need keys to open doors. If the penguins want to go in the room so badly, why not get a chainsaw and bust the door down? FYI: Rockhopper’s quarters probably broke open when the ship sank to the bottom of the ocean. Why couldent the team search inside? I wonder how they pulled that room up without looking. Maybe they put their fins over their eyes while operating the crane. Maybe they closed their eyes when they were nailing the wood back together. Who knows! I really think that we should get to see the room already. We have been waiting for more than a year until the right moment. Maybe Rockhopper is hiding something “disturbing” Maybe a picture of his penguin wife, Mrs. Waddles who broke up with him because he would not get off the ship. (I know it’s not true, but still…) Maybe Rockhopper is hiding something that will change Club Penguin forever. He might be hiding the map to Rockhopper Island in the quarters. He might be hiding another animal other than a puffle. What I am trying to say is that Rockhopper’s quarters might not “just” be a room for people to talk in. I know it is something more and that one day “it” will be released.

Voice Of Penguins I

I am sorry to all for not posting in awhile. For all wordpress users, you may have noticed that the wordpress dashboard got totally redesigned, so it took awhile to find everything again and get back on track here. Anyway, I am introducing a new segment here on the Penguin Tribune. This one is called the VOP or (Voice of Penguins/People). As many have already found out, we are not a cheat site. What we do here is give news. There are thousands of other wordpresses that post the same thing like “catalog secrets!” or “hidden pin!” or things like that. For the first VOP, I decided to search on the new stage. I checked other penguin’s wordpresses for what they think the new stage will be.

“The Play looks like a Indiana Jones play! -nutput.wordpress.com”

“i think its pretty,cool.(starts april 11)maybe you could be an alligator ; ) -tony401.com”

“The new Stage looks cool with the picture that they give you, It might be a congo rain forest -mrbigmancp.wordpress.com “

“new Play at the Stage will be here April 11th as well. Looks like Indiana Jones -watex.wordpress.com”

“Also the stage will have an awesome theme this time! Might be pirates! -cpmonster.wordpress.com”

“A new play will be at the stage next Friday, April 11th. It looks like an Indiana Jones under-water theme -raider12.wordpress.com”

“There is a sneak peek of the next play at the stage. Hmmm… Maybe, Tarzan?? Lol! -tampos.wordpress.com”

“The new play has something to do with Jungle and/or alligators. : D -tanukii25.wordpress.com”

“There is an new play at the stage 11th April. Its something about river seems very cool -apoelara4ever.wordpress.com”

“There’s gonna be a new play soon coming up! It looks like pirates to me. Interesting… – vietpride28.wordpress.com”

“New play at the stage! Circus is my guess! -fotis01.wordpress.com”

Feel free to voice your opinion on what the play is going to be. If you want my opinion, I think it is going to be some kind of adventure in Africa. It might be something like the Lion King, because remember Club Penguin is part of Disney now and so their ideas go along also. Just like the last play with the gym; it was relating to high school musical. This one has to do with Disney also.
