Do you remember out old “Mocktropica Island” post? If you don’t, go check it out before reading this!
Recently Tough Spider, Silver Wolf, and I (SD) made some interesting predictions about this possible island. However, don’t give me all the credit, TS came up with it at first. Here are our comments:
No way… this is so cool…
Okay guys, I’m probably wrong, but you know what that first picture looks like to me? It looks like…
AN ISLAND EDITOR!!
That would be SO cool! We could create our own islands with a few clicks!
What makes me think it’s an editor? Well, first of all, it says “EDITOR” in capital letters on the bottom. It has layer toolbar, which could let us make buildings and create new backgrounds. It’s got a file menu, too, and there’s a post-it that says “Deadlines are no joke!” Maybe that could be a reference to how stressed out the creators are in meeting deadlines? I don’t know.
The other really interesting thing is the top bar thing. It says:
Well, there is a site called static.poptropica.com, and I think it’s like the “Programming Home” of poptropica, where the creators program everything. And if you go to static.poptropica.com/scenes/ you get a FORBIDDEN error.
So I did a bit of research about static.poptropica.com and found this:
which seems to be a list of islands, their programming names and …coordinates?
Anyway, this seems to be one of few files that does not end in .swf. I looked up the file extension .wip and it’s some file extension for some program. Not Poptropica related at all. Of course, WIP could also just stand for work in progress.
That was a long comment!
That’s an AWESOME idea!!! Wow, you’re really good at researching.
I noticed something else, too. For one, under the “FILE” tab, there is a “RANDOM” button. It would make a lot of sense for it to be for us to make an island, because why would the Creators’ have a “RANDOM” button in the first place? It also has a “HELP” button, which doesn’t make much sense for it to be on the editor itself. If it was a program, I mean, don’t you think it wouldn’t be in the way like that? Plus, the “Deadlines are no joke” sticky-note makes me think there might be an island for, us, to act like the Creators and make islands ourselves. I don’t know… Just some ideas.

GREAT idea guys!!! I really hope you’re right because it sounds awesome! I agree with your reasoning too. Both of yours.
If you look at the second picture, it’s a story generator. If this idea turns out to be true, then the story generator could be a part of the “Help” tab, in case we need a cool idea for a story line!
Maybe the Creators will even look at our unique islands (if we’re correct) and possibly edit some into actual islands!
Just a thought, but this looks cool!
(I’m going to paste these 3 comments on the PHB! Don’t worry, I’ll say which comments are from who.)
There you have it! A lot of reading, but a lot of possible discovery! Do you think this prediction is true? What do you think is going to happen with Mocktropica Island?
Oh, and here are the pictures we were talking about:
