polo field leaves twitter

Polo Field leaves Twitter

With Disney’s policies regarding the social media interaction of Club Penguin staff members getting more strict overtime, we all knew it would happen eventually.

First, Spike Hike and Polo Field unfollowed everyone, stopped replying and deleted their tweets. Then they cut back on their tweets and became very inactive, along with other members of staff such as Megg who no longer tweets or replies to anyone.

Polo Field also closed his blog which he previously used to answer questions and reveal news about Club Penguin.

Now, Polo Field is leaving Twitter altogether and will only communicate via the official Club Penguin blog. I suspect that he will soon be disallowed from replying to us on that platform, too!

Disney’s policies are enforced with the safety of children in mind. Despite Twitter’s age requirement of 13 years old, not everybody follows that rule, and there are many under-13s on Twitter – including a number of Club Penguin players.

Apparently Disney believe that by retiring all connections with kids via social media, they are helping them be safe online.

I disagree – do they think these kids will stop coming on Twitter just because Polo Field is no longer on there? That is not that case, the Club Penguin community is populated and vibrant because of the awesome players.

I also don’t understand the agist notion that all kids under 13 are irresponsible and are unable to fend for themselves on the internet. I myself have been here since a tween, and it’s done me more good than harm.

Since I joined the Club Penguin community, I have learned a lot about the internet, marketing and computer science. Without it, I would know nothing about those subjects. Also, as I didn’t go to school for a long period of time, I had no friends in real life and thus no connection with anybody apart from my ‘Club Penguin friends’. It sounds weird, but without CP and Twitter, my life would be completely empty right now.

By stopping communication with us on Twitter, Club Penguin are not going to change anything apart from branding themselves as an incommunicative company. It gives the impression that they don’t care about their users, which isn’t a positive label to stick on its jumper.

club penguin times stage renovation not permanent

The Club Penguin School & Skate Party’s Stage Renovation Is Not Permanent

Over the past few days, there has been wild speculation regarding the Stage’s replacement with the Mall. A lot of people have been saying this renovation is permanent, despite having no evidence or any kind of hint towards that being true. I tweeted this last week:

If you don’t know what I meant by “CP didn’t even change the JSON data”, rooms.json is a file which contains all the configuration settings for each room (you can view these using my Room Explorer tool). If this replacement of the Stage was permanent, Club Penguin would’ve changed this data to coincide with that. Instead, it’s exactly the same as it’s always been.

{"room_id":340,"room_key":"stage","name":"The Stage","display_name":"The Stage","music_id":749,"is_member":0,"path":"stage.swf","max_users":80,"jump_enabled":false,"jump_disabled":true,"required_item":null,"short_name":"The Stage"}

The Club Penguin Times has now confirmed that this speculation was indeed just speculation; the Stage’s replacement of the Mall is not going to be permanent. In the Upcoming Events section of the latest issue, it states that The Living Sled will be returning to the Stage.

If you don’t believe me, log in to Club Penguin and open the newspaper. You will see this line in the Upcoming Events section.

Are you glad that this change is not going permanent after all? A lot of people seemed to be upset by it. Please SHARE this post so everyone knows the truth – you can also win a Club Penguin membership by doing so!

club penguin building schools

Club Penguin Blog: Building Schools and Giving Backpacks

A few seconds ago, Polo Field published a new post on the Club Penguin Community Blog about how they’re building schools and giving backpacks, and how we can get involved! If you fancy helping out, read Mr. Gliddon’s new article on the blog below:

We think every kid should have a place to learn, and that’s why this year we’ve built school classrooms in Ecuador, India, and Haiti. And gave 14,000 backpacks filled with school supplies to students in need across the United States and United Kingdom.

With your help we can do more! If you raise money to build a school, we’ll match your donation (up to $5,000 USD). So what are you waiting for? Check out our Global Citizenship page and read about our Matching Grant Program to learn how.

Waddle on,

-Club Penguin Team

Gotta love Club Penguin and their charity work. I believe there’ll be another Coins for Change this year too.
