Note that it would take a miracle for Club Penguin to be as crowded as it was in its heyday, but I don’t mean to be pessimistic at all. With the exceptions of servers such as Blizzard or Iceberg, Club Penguin servers are just like ghost towns. Waddling around the ghost town servers saddens me, especially strolling through the servers that at one point were full of players. Numerous servers lie in the server list, waiting for players to hop in. There are just too many of these servers and I personally think it’d be better to get rid of some instead of having a boatload of empty servers just sitting there.
You, the players, can help Club Penguin! After all, that’s what Club Penguin is all about: the community, that’s us! We need to take action. I have explained some ways to bring Club Penguin’s popularity back! Well, it may not be a big enough impact to encourage people in the millions to join Club Penguin, but anything is advantageous.
When Club Penguin was new to the world wide web, they got so popular, it was overwhelming. There was fear that the servers would crash because of the large amount of people online! Club Penguin got popular not because of advertisements, they didn’t do that kind of stuff. The reason was word of mouth. Friends told friends, “Hey, this game I’ve been playing is soooo awesome, you should check it out! It’s called Club Penguin and I think you’ll like it.” By spreading the word of CP, you are raising the chances of more new players joining. You can tell your family members, especially the younger ones, about Club Penguin. You can tell your friends, too, even though they might be older than the recommended age, but hey, lots of teens play Club Penguin.
Creating fan blogs, videos, and artworks are more powerful ways to help Club Penguin. All of this content is merely optional, yet many members of the community are doing this for enjoyment as well as aiding CP. While we are doing any of those three, more Club Penguin media and content is being posted on the web and more people will get to become aware of a game with the name, Club Penguin. The more media, the more interaction with Club Penguin, thus comes more players as the media is being spread around the internet. Bloggers, video-makers, and artists, keep up the excellent work!
Finally, in order for Club Penguin to see their stats of online players going skyward, you need to be online, needless to say! I try to keep a balance between Twitter and Club Penguin. Even though you completed everything in Club Penguin, the Card-Jitsu saga, stamps, etc, you can nonetheless keep on having fun by playing games and partying with friends. I have to admit, I tend to get bored on Club Penguin, even with some of CP’s parties lately, but once I play several extreme rounds of Card-Jitsu and have epic parties with friends, the ho-hum feeling vanishes. I may not spend as much time on Club Penguin than when I was new to the game, but I still have fun, typically with my friends! I completely understand that now that many of us are older, we are very busy with our lives. But when I have spare time, I use a portion of it for Club Penguin. 🙂 And I also keep in mind that mobile games and some computer games are tough competition for Club Penguin, so it is understandable that Club Penguin’s traffic has decreased. Even when you’re just online, doing nothing, that does help Club Penguin. Of course, memberships help Club Penguin even further, but with all the little help added together, it’ll mean an abundance of help for the game we’ve loved for years.
I would like to end my post about the well known hashtag, #SaveClubPenguin. If you are on Twitter, I assume you’ve seen it already. I personally believe that Club Penguin doesn’t need “saving,” because it’s not like the game will end next month. Club Penguin just needs some help from the community. Together, we are as mighty as the Tallest Mountain!
