Hello Penguins!

As you know, we just launched the new Chat upgrade and new Friends experience this week. It turns out they're both incredibly popular! There have been so many friend requests being sent back and forth that it's even made it difficult to log in. 

To make sure you're able to login, we'll be limiting the number of friends to 100 this weekend. This is a temporary fix while we continue to optimize. You'll see your full friend list again once we're finished a bit of maintenance. 

Thanks for all your improvement suggestions so far. We love hearing your feedback, so keep it coming! You can share your thoughts in the comments below. 

Until then... Waddle On!

Greetings Penguins!

Happy77 here. Just wanted to give you a quick update. I've heard that some of you aren't able to log into Club Penguin, or that your Friends list looks empty. The team is working behind-the-scenes to fix these things right now. Thanks for being patient with this stuff. 

While you're waiting, I thought you might want to test out a couple new game prototypes on Beta Team!

To join Beta Team, click on this link, then enter your penguin name and password. Once you've logged into Beta Team, type list to see the file list.

We added a couple new rough concepts there: Goalie, Icebergs and Puffle Bowling. 

Make sure you let us know what you think, and ways that we could make them better.  

Waddle On! :)

Hello Penguins!

I'm excited to say... the new Chat Friends and Chat are available now!

The team has been working really hard on these new features for you guys. This is all brand new technology for Club Penguin, and we're really excited to finally share it with you!

Here are a few brand new things we've added:

  • New Chat: Chatting with your friends is now easier than ever. It's way faster to make sentences by clicking the word blocks as they appear:

  • Pictures of Friends: Now you'll see pictures of your friends instead of just a list of names. So it's faster than ever to see all your friends' outfits!
 
  • Tag your Best Friends: It's way easier to keep track of your best friends now. You can make someone a best friend on your list by clicking the little medal above their picture. Check it out:

  • Find your Friends Faster: It's so much easier to find friends, because now you can search for them. Just type in your friend's name, then send them a friend request. They don't have to be logged in to get your request!

As I said before, this is brand new technology, so there may be some hiccups. We're going to do everything we can to make sure that it's running as smoothly as possible for you guys. Thanks for your patience as we continue to make Club Penguin even better!

Let us know what your favorite feature is in the comments below. And be sure to let us know what you'd like to see added in the future! We've got a few more exciting additions to the Friends list coming in the next few weeks... 

Until then... Waddle On!
