5 Years of the PTFP

The very first post made on the PTFP was on December 10, 2012. That means this blog has been around 5 entire years. During the 5 years, we have met a lot of great people that have all contributed to this blog in their own ways, and I appreciate every one of them. I know there hasn’t been a post in 2 months, but that doesn’t mean the blog is over. In fact, I would love for more authors on the PTFP so we can become completely active again! You can contact me through Discord (preferred) or email.

So what have these 5 years encompassed? Well, over 300,000 views, over 14,000 comments, nearly 800 posts, and over 200 followers on the blog and Twitter each.

Statistics

So where have these views come from? Well, almost nearly all have come from the United States, but there are a fair share of other countries that have viewed the blog, too, even if only one view! The top 10 countries as of this moment are:

  1. The United States – 249,627
  2. Australia – 10,805
  3. Canada – 10,125
  4. India – 5,218
  5. The United Kingdom – 3,919
  6. Philippines – 3,845
  7. New Zealand – 2,264
  8. Hong Kong SAR China – 1,640
  9. Singapore – 1,457
  10. Malaysia – 1,388

I think it is awesome that this blog has viewers from around the globe. But most importantly, besides just numbers, I have formed memories and friends in this community since this blog was made, and that’s not something statistics can show. I would especially like to thank Spotted Dragon, Brave Sky, and Starving Cereal (SC) who have been here since the beginning. And thank you to everyone for sticking with us!

Mashup Mondays: MLP Friendship is Magic

mashup-mondays-header

I know what you’re thinking…wasn’t this series dead?! No…well, maybe… Anyway, it’s back! This week’s mashup was suggested by Purple Claw on the last Mashup Mondays about Supernatural. If you don’t know what MLP stands for, this post is about My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Also, happy Memorial Day!


Art

The first piece of art we have is by ihmps6p07 on deviantArt, named “MLP: Poptropica Artists from MLP“! They turned Poptropica artists that also draw MLP into ponies themselves:

Other Poptropica/MLP artists include PerfectLightningDeeJay-RosiettaANNE14TCO,  TechnoBunny16, and SuperGrape1. Here are their works, respectively:

Even though these are only their MLP examples, these artists have plenty of Poptropica art, too. Also, click the images to see their links and their full size!


Costumes

I’m just putting a disclaimer right here that this section is going to be huge. Why? Because a certain MLP and Poptropica fan made a ton of potential costumes for a My Little Pony Island! Technically these are artworks, but I figured that since they’re meant to be costumes, they can go in this section. Here they are:

Mashup Mondays: Supernatural

mashup-mondays-header

It’s been awhile, but another Mashup Mondays is here! This time it’s on one of my personal favorite TV shows: Supernatural. Although, it’s rated TV-14, so make sure to get your parents permission first to watch it! Along with this post, I’m hoping to make a news one and maybe another random one soon. 😉 Also, there are some creature spoilers.


Direct Creations

I’ve found a couple of creations directly related to Supernatural, but there are plenty that indirectly relate too! Seriously, from Greek mythology to vampires and wraiths, the show has it all. Here they are:

To the left is a motivational poster made by 1313cookie (better known as Brave Tomato) on DeviantArt. Make sure to read the description or else you might not get the reference! To the right is Castiel, a character from Supernatural, on the Poptropica Fashion Wiki. Pretty good if I say so myself!

A Happy Snapshot!

Snapshot!

Since it would be hard to keep up with updates on a page, I figured I could post whenever a new Snapshot was updated! You can either guess which island the Snapshot is from on this post or on the Snapshot! page. A little holiday present from me. 😉

#124 – Guessed by Bendy Flyer!

Make sure to read all the rules, and if you guess correctly, you are emailed my Poptropican’s username and you get put on the Hall of Fame page! Pretty cool. You can also see (almost) all the Snapshots ever guessed on the Previous Snapshots! page.

Have fun!


Happy Holidays!

Poptropica, as always, wanted to send a happy holidays to all you Poptropicans out there! Despite in my last post saying the Creators didn’t seem that busy, Skinny Moon and Captain Crawfish have made a post about how there would be an update next week.

Very interesting,” they called it. Perhaps updates on the New Poptropica? I won’t get my hopes up, but it’s still a possibility that it could be a holiday present for us.

Speaking of holidays, exactly what holidays are there nearby?

  • Hanukkah (evening of December 24th – evening of January 1st)
  • Christmas (December 25th)
  • Kwanzaa (December 26th – January 1st)
  • New Year’s Day (January 1st)
  • Three Kings’ Day (January 6th)
  • Lunar New Year (January 28th)

So, happy holidays! 😀

Mashup Mondays: Frozen

mashup-mondays-header

Let it go, let it go, can’t hold it back anymore… Unless you were born today, you’ve probably heard about Disney’s Frozen, possibly now one of Disney’s most iconic modern movies. I mean, we’re still hearing about it in 2016 from over 3 years ago! There’s that, and plus it is winter, so what could be better?


Extra Creations

Sometimes there’s such a variety of fan creations, it can’t be put into one category. Well, we have a piece of art, YouTube video, and Realms! First up is a EPoptropica version of Elsa drawn by TamamoMae:

It looks pretty cool! I think the eyeshadow was a nice touch. Next is a Realms creation with Frozen’s Elsa and Anna in multiple costumes (thanks to the PHB)!

I’ve always liked what Anna wears better than Elsa; I like blue, but not too much blue. Lastly, a YouTube video by Sienna Nading that smooths right into the next section, showing how to make an Elsa costume:

Great video, Sienna!

What’s Crackin, Guys?

Hey, guys.

Now you see I’m new to this blog. So let me tell you a bit about myself.

My name is DJVampiGamer, but I like to go by Vampi for short. I’m a 14-year-old guy who lives in Texas (yee-haw!), an avid Poptropican who likes to make a whole bunch of references to things most people don’t know about (the title of this post being one of them), and I’m just an all-around random guy. I run Trusty Bear’s Poptropica Hotspot, my personal Poptropica blog; Vampi’s Gaming Haven, where I post non-Poptropica related walkthroughs, gaming news, and more; and Vampi’s Anime News, where I talk about the latest news in anime.

If you ever feel like wanting to get in touch with me, here’s a list of my social media accounts and communication sevices:

  • Twitter: @DJVampiStep
  • Discord: DJVampi#0148
  • Skype: theathenaspawnergaming
  • Gmail: samconry42@gmail.com

I’m always checking Discord and Twitter, periodically Skype and Gmail, but if you see DJVampi or Vampinyl anywhere, just stop and say hi!

And as I always say on the TBPH: keep poppin’ it!

Mashup Mondays: How to Train Your Dragon

mashup-mondays-header

Yep, it’s this time again! Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard of How to Train Your Dragon 1 and 2, some of the most popular kids’ movies to date. There isn’t any art for this (sadly), but there are costumes, ads, and some dragons in Poptropica itself!


Costumes

I’ve only found two costumes for How to Train Your Dragon, but I think they’re really good! Both are from the Poptropica Help Blog on their Costumes page of Hiccup and Astrid in the movie. If you can’t find it, try pressing ctrl and ‘f’ at the same time, then search the names in the search bar at the top right. Here they are:

I like how they both give off a Viking feel but their costumes still vary quite a bit. I especially like Astrid’s axe. Make sure to click the link for instructions on how to make the costumes yourself.
