BT was looking through the Daily Pop and came across this picture:
Then she noticed what it said in small print:
It says Mocktropica. Weird. Then, to check, BT looked up www.mocktropicaisland.com, which redirects to Poptropica! After a Whois search apparently Pearson (Poptropica) had bought that URL on April 8, 2013! Does this mean the island after Virus Hunter is Mocktropica? If it is, it’s pretty impressive that the Poptropicans have figured it out before the Creators wanted us to this early!
So BT also checked out some of the Daily Pops that could relate to this island, such as these:
Idea Generator: Spin to win, try your luck.
Poppycock: Nothing like a virtual assistant who’s virtually useless.
What are your thoughts about all this? (Credit to the PHB for all the pictures)
I found out about it before BT… LOL but you wouldn’t know unless you were one of the few people that veiwed my first blog before it go tshut down….

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 extention 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. 😀
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.)
After I make a post about this thought. 😉
No problem! I thought it was a great prediction. 😉
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.
Oh yeah! That would explain why it’s called mocktropica! Because your trying to make your own island!
I’m so dumb. I never thought of that.
LOL. Don’t be too hard on yourself…I’m sure… Your ok at guessing… NOT! Jk
-_- I am school smart, but can’t do simple tasks……
This is off topica I can’t continue.
Ahh, I see what you did there. Like Poptropica.
I guess it’s on topic if it’s about POPTROPICA!
Yeah I guess so!
-_- You despise me topica. Jk. 😆
Interesting… So they’re mocking Clippy, too, with that virtual assistant thing.
Mockingbirds? Mocking Jays?
Mocking themselves… I wonder how they’ll make THAT into an adventure.
