Hi Guys! Slippery here! Okay! New news today!
First stop is the new theme! Well, this theme for me is more modern, more sophisticated and more cooler.
This theme is Writr. No, it is not a misspelled “writer”. Really! If you want to put this theme to your WordPress site, here’s the link: http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/writr/
Here’s some few features that I really love!
Optimal layout on different media devices
Writr is responsive — from desktop to mobile, and everything in between. The design will adapt to any screen without sacrificing usability or design integrity.
Writr supports all post formats. Each post format has a unique icon.
Custom Header and Gravatar
By default, Writr will display the site owner’s Gravatar in the header.
If you want to display something other than your Gravatar, you can upload a Custom Header Image in Appearance → Header, or you can remove it completely by selecting Remove Header Image.
In a Poptropica-related news, the Creators explain their side about the Monster Carnival Island mystery. Well then, let’s hear it!
Longtime Poptropicans know that Monster Carnival was supposed to be one of our earliest Islands. It was announced in 2008, and even added to the travel map with a message that said “Coming Soon.” Then it disappeared without notice.
There have been a lot of explanations over the years. Some were closer to the mark than others. Frankly, we’d like to let the conspiracy theories go on, because they’re more interesting than the truth. But it’s time we came clean.
Monster Carnival was removed from the Poptropica travel map because it wasn’t finished, and everybody was too busy with other projects to give it the attention it needed. That’s all! We really just announced it too early, got onto other things, and never came back to it.
But as Monster Carnival continued to live on in the imaginations of our players, we couldn’t let it go. What a great name! Every year, when we discussed what new Islands to make, somebody would say “Monster Carnival!” and everyone else would nod. Then we’d pick a bunch of other Islands to do instead.
Maybe we were intimidated. We all know what happens when something becomes anticipated for too long. Better to leave it as an unrealized dream, rather than risk not delivering.
Well, every dog has his day, and the same is true of a great idea for a Poptropica Island. Monster Carnival is very real this time, and we hope it is worth the wait.
