Poll position

Update: Thanks for your votes! The poll is now closed.

Greetings, Poptropicans! As you know, from time to time we like to ask you some questions that will help us decide what great new things to do with Poptropica. This is one of those times.

We've put up a new poll in the blog sidebar asking you which of the three major videogame consoles you own. You can select all of them, or none of them. Your answers could help to shape the future of Poptropica!

Poptropica Superstars: Quiet Boot

Introducing today's Poptropica Superstar: Quiet Boot!

Quiet Boot has put her Membership to good use, finishing both Red Dragon Island and Shrink Ray Island on the day they were released. (Maybe this means we should be making the Islands harder?) She is also undefeated in the "Prepare for Impact" sumo game on Red Dragon Island. And, as you can see from her avatar, her fashion sense is scary good.

Congratulations, Quiet Boot, on becoming a Poptropica Superstar!

Millions and millions of kids love Poptropica, and we love you all right back. That's why, all this week, we're going to showcase some of our most dedicated players right here in the creators' blog. Say hello to the first Poptropica Superstar, Grumpy Icicle!

Grumpy Icicle has beaten 18 of the 20 Poptropica Islands, including the toughest one, Astro-Knights. He was number 1 on our list of the first 10 Poptropicans to finish Cryptids Island, and he just missed appearing on the list of the first 10 to finish Shrink Ray Island. Grumpy Icicle was number 11.

So, Grumpy Icicle, congratulations: you're a true Poptropica Superstar!

Effect change

Following on the heels of yesterday's announcement about Island Restart, we wanted to tell you about another new feature that we hope will make your Poptropica experience even better.

Have you ever had a bunch of different character effects activated, and had to go through your Gold Cards one by one to shut them all off? Not anymore!

Now, when you access your store inventory, you can press the button that says "Turn Off Special Effects" to get rid of all of them in one fell swoop. This will save you some time and help you get to the effects you want even faster.

Announcing Island Restart!

One of Poptropica's most requested features is finally here. Now, you can replay any Poptropica Island as much as you want!

Just visit the map screen on the Island you want to restart, and press the round "RESTART ISLAND" button in the bottom lefthand corner. Presto! Your adventure begins anew.

If you've already completed an Island and earned that Island's Medallion, never fear! You won't lose it. Your Medallion will still appear on the Stats screen. Plus, when you move your cursor over your Island Medallions on the Stats screen, you'll even see how many times you've completed each Island.

So what are you waiting for? Get out there and start your Poptropica adventure all over again!
