Friends Pages!


We've given the friends page a totally new look with awesome new features!

You can leave messages for your friends, share your photos, swap costumes, and customize your page!



You can like all the epic pages you come across, visit your friends clubhouses, decorate your sticker wall and more!


To access the new friends page just click the friends icon you've always used in the main menu!

Want more features added? Let us know in the comments!

So to recap...
* Users can no longer be friended by supplying their username.
* Only nine or so users can be visible in a user's friend list.
* People cannot be unfriended.
* The sticker wall feature, which for some reason is members-only, is rendered obsolete by the much-superior photobooth.
* Profiles can now be "liked", much like a social media page, but this action cannot be undone. It also serves little purpose.

I think the idea of revamping the profile page is a good one, and I admit that some features like the clubhouse link and changeable wallpapers are nice additions, but overall this seems more like a prototype than a worthwhile update.

NOOOO! I'm going to lose all 50 of my hilarious but hard worked for photos! Maybe they could keep the old friend page on non-sound islands and this new thing on sound islands. I'm sure it would work for everyone, especially if you are on a old island and have to start the new engine when accessing the friend page (which takes a very long time to load.) Just a suggestion.

Please keep this new friend page on sound-islands and not on old Poptropican islands. That way, we still keep photos, pop quizzes, friend customization, and many other useful measures. Thanks.

Old Poptropica friend list was the best but I will also try hard to be very fine with changes that is what I always work hard on. The only thing that will make me feel a bit bad is that if I make friends with more others and they turn out to also play Poptropica I can't add them as a friend can you add another way to get friends easier but it's still a pretty cool update. I'll always love Poptropica though and I hope for someday I'll be able to aford for Poptropica membership for me where I got to where I can play newest islands on Poptropica worlds right away insted of having to wait for it to come out for everyone I still miss when there were Demo's like for when Escape from Pelican Rock was the newest island as a Demo I really like that Idea for just the new friend thing only on sound music islands and not the ones with no music at all in the backround so that way I can still add new friends that play Poptropica that there may be when I make friends with other Poptropica players that I may know in person or not it's cool making friends for me online or real life online they can meet my Poptropican Popular Noodle I chose to go with for me it's the best name I can get for me cause sadly I can't get my name as a lion king charecter not even my own Kira Lioness but I'm fine with Popular Noodle too for me I like that my Poptropican got my most favorite youtuber he is quite Popular youtuber Thinknoodles of course and I consider myself like A noodle whatever his big fans like me are called I'm one of them in a way to me so for me it is a fine Poptropican name I found for myself Popular Noodle is a fine name in this game. It will be hard on me not being able to add anymore new friends I make that may also Play Poptropica but sadly I might just have to get over it eventually and with never seeing Island Photos you could see before when playing Poptropica islands that I'll miss along with other stuff for sure but I'll be able to get over it Eventually I uselly do for things it's mainly always possiable for me eventually.

It's not perfect, but it's a start; I would argue that this new friends page is actually a downgrade from the original one, but it could be improved upon with several new updates in the future. To begin with, I think everyone can agree that a lot of the original friends page features are missing and should return; when compared to what we had before, it just feels rather incomplete and empty. It is probably difficult translating all these features from the original engine to the newer engine and may take some time, so I can understand if this is a problem. (I don't know much about computer programming, but if I'm wrong please ignore what I just said lol). I am open to change and new ideas, but some of the new additions serves no real purpose (Most notably the sticker wall, and the the liking system). Customizing the profile page is a neat cosmetic, and more could be done with this idea going forward, but please make it so that these features aren't completely exclusive to Members; for example, regarding the wallpaper, make it so that some wallpapers are only available to members, while others are available to everyone etc. I don't want this post to drag on forever with a bajillion different ideas, so I'll just leave it at that. Thanks for reading! (If you did lol, idk how this comment approval system works)

This is cool, but I would like if in the future, the Tribes, Photos, and Daily Questions came back. Photos were one of my favourite features, I worked hard to get them all.

CJ said...

Now I cant add my freinds or unfriend people! :(

This is honestly the ultimate downgrade for non-members. Not only have almost all of the old features been deleted, but the new features are, of course, members' only.
I understand that this website needs money to keep running, but there is still a huge community of non-members that has loved Poptropica for years and is still waiting around to see what becomes of it.
Please notice that and maybe give them a few more features, because if we're going to be waiting a month for a new update, then we want it to be worth our while. So this update wasn't really worth all of the hype.
You need to be honest about how great your updates are actually going to be, cause I kind of think you use "This update is going to be awesome" and statements like that as an excuse for the large amount of time it takes for you to release them.
If the updates you've been releasing lately hadn't been so forgetful of non-members, then maybe I wouldn't be so critical.
But here's a solution to the problem: Give the non-members something fun to do so they still have a reason to play this game (hint hint, islands!)
Thank you for listening to our comments about the game and continuing to run the game that I grew up on.

My dad just told me that I can still play Poptropica on a different browser. I am using Microsoft edge now and it's not asking me to enable adobe flash player! Some will still be able to Poptropica!

Joey Nigro said...

Thank you.

Drawn Swords said...

I love how they are making really cool updates to try to make the game more attractive to newer or younger players, but they removed some of my favorite things about Poptropica. I always loved Tribes, it was awesome to me when I was younger and I think it will be the same for, as I said, newer and younger players as well. R.I.P Photos as well the photos, with the funny captions, made me want to solve islands longer and find more items. No hate on the Poptropica creators, they always do the best to make Poptropica the game it can be :)

Joey Nigro said...

Don't forget to retire Shrink Ray Island.

WHAT ABOUT NEW ISLANDS

arii said...

Unfortunately for me most of my beta looks were either taken out of my closet or just simply didn't work anymore. feelsbadman.

greywolf said...

Will you guys be releasing new islands or will there be no new islands and just updates in the game?

Max Fraser said...

It is awful.
Poptropica used to be my favourite game.
The updates keep getting worse and worse for non-members. Everything is a long prosess. Where are the tribes? the add friends option? the photos? the costumiser? all my old friends? the daily pop quiz? Everything is gone. Nothing fun in the friends page anymore... PLEASE DO SOMETHING TO FIX THIS. GIVE US AN OPTION TO SWITCH BACK TO THE OLD FRIENDS PAGE!

Unknown said...

why does all the good stuff like stickers have to membership

Ajay Nandur said...

I have restarted Early Poptropica 500 times. Now it;s all gone :( Wow

Unknown said...

what??!!!! we cant add new friends? I like the update but I don't like how we can't add new people

Jourdon Patron said...

Let former members keep Membership items they've bought, this is a huge issue and now items that weren't even "member items" before are now member items and I can't use them despite I used credits or promo codes to get them. Fix this please.

Unknown said...

This is so sad, Poptropica isn't what it used to be, man. It's been a long time but I just want new islands at this point. But it really do be like that sometimes.
I have faith in the creators-just not as much as I used to.

Unknown said...

I can't even delete friends I don't want because they have no money, if you know what I mean. (they is newbies) BrOOoo, and I cant even get my beloved photos back!!!!!!! UNDO THE UPDATE DOOD

Unknown said...

How do you friend people on it!
