Club Penguin Memories Domain!!

Hey everyone, the website is nearly complete! Right now my friend Tech163 is transferring everything onto our new domain name, clubpenguinmemories.com. It’s almost done. It might be a little glitchy, but don’t worry! This is our to do list:

  1. Favicon (the little icon on the top of the window/tab)
  2. Thumbnails on each page. Currently it’s a huge image.
  3. Twitter follow button
  4. Getting the website back up to date with the recent Club Penguin Updates
  5. Make it include the year in the post date
  6. Tweet button
  7. Redirect the wordpress.com website to the domain

I’m pretty sure that’s it! I hope you’re as happy as I am, and feel free to spread the word! More when this is all complete.

Done! (and an outlook on what to expect)

Okay, so I’m pretty happy right now – I pretty much finished the website. I managed to do it without filling the 3GB of space, too. In fact, I have 16.2 MB left, or 0.5% of 3GB. Haha. Thank goodness I’m going self hosted and getting a domain – more about that below.

First thing is first. I’m pretty amazed at how this website got a fair amount of hits. I’m not positive, but I think the Piczo website is dead. Piczo is terrible, no lie. They have terrible support, it’s full of errors, blah blah blah. Back in Spring they deleted my website when I told them to just delete a page…and it took a week or two until it was undeleted. Good times, good times. Back in October when I was thinking about moving from Piczo to WordPress, I made a pros (good things) & cons (bad things) list. The ups & downs of transferring the old website to here. Here’s the list:

Pros: Cons:
Better commenting system than Piczo’s Shoutboxes Have to pay for more space unlike Piczo
You can get a domain name It’ll take time to transfer everything
I get to back up all the pictures on my computer I don’t know if it’ll be worth it in the end
Have to start all over (good and bad) Have to start all over (good and bad)
Ranks in Google so much better Not quite as customizable(?)
I can add authors without giving them my password unlike Piczo Not as familiar with WordPress
Better Support I’ll loose all my 180,000+ hits and need to advertise this new website
WordPress is more popular than Piczo
My friends are skilled at WordPress
Plugins
Better hit counter – my Piczo one froze

As you can see, there is more pros than cons, so I went ahead and did it. Now, as I said about I was surprised that I got a fair amount of hits while working on this website. Here’s the stats from around the time I started to the time I finished:

Week 42: 66 hits
Week 43: 317 hits
Week 44: 464 hits
Week 45: 520 hits
Week 46: 356 hits
Week 47: 415 hits
Week 48: 480 hits
Week 49: 225 hits (and the week isn’t over yet!)

No, that isn’t week 42 working on the website, it’s the 42nd week of the year.

Now, here is what to expect in the near future:

1) My friend Tech163 is currently working on making me self hosted. He got me a domain name, too. More about this when it’s all set up.
2) Blogging about what’s new on Club Penguin. In addition to all the pictures on the pages of the parties, newspapers, catalogs, etc I’ll be blogging about the latest Club Penguin Updates. I help Tech163 and Loki Terry blog on Club Penguin CC, and whenever Club Penguin updates I’m usually one of the first to post what’s new – whether it be Field Ops, a new pin, new catalogs, etc. When I’m back in school (I’m temporarily home schooled, which is the only reason I managed to do all this in 2 months while balancing other work) I might not be the first, but I’ll be quick. I might have friends blog for me too when I’m at school – but for right now I plan to work alone. It might change at some point though. For now I’ll be doing just pages. Once the domain setup is complete I’ll do the blogging too. It should all be complete sometime soon.
3) What is nice about WordPress compared to Piczo is WordPress is so much faster to use. I can set up a page in minutes. For Piczo, it takes a good 15 or more. I’ve got a quicker technique to take screenshots, too.

Here’s some stats you might find interesting:

1) This website takes up just about 3GB of space
2) I have 10,774 images on this website excluding the stats picture above
3) I have 884 pages total.

My next post will be when the domain is ready and I’m self hosted. I’ll see you soon! For now, you can always Contact Me or see my posts on Club Penguin CC. Any advertising of this website would be greatly appreciated. Now, I need to do some homework. I’ve been doing minimum stuff for the past month or two to finish this done. Goodbye Piczo, hello WordPress.

Cheers!

Happy Three Years, Club Penguin Memories!

Today is a (somewhat) special day for me. On December 7, 2007 (three years ago) I was home sick from school, back in sixth grade. I was on the computer on Piczo, and got the idea to create a Club Penguin Memories website. So I did, and created the Club Penguin Memories Piczo Website. It was more popular than I ever thought it would be. I learned a lot about Club Penguin & coding these past three years, and have met so many awesome and helpful people. Without all of you, I would be nowhere I am today.

Now, about trying to get this site done…..I’m just about done with furniture catalogs. The only thing I won’t be able to get done today is Stage Plays – I’m almost out of disk space, so either I need to buy more from WordPress or go Self Hosted. I’ll keep you updated. After all this is sorted out and completed, I’ll be posting about what’s new on Club Penguin whenever they updates. I’ll also be doing small page tweaks, possibly widgets, etc.

Thanks for being so awesome, everybody!

Update: Everything is done except Stage Plays & Tweaks I have to do. Enjoy!

Almost there!

Ugh. I’m not much of a complainer, but this is taking forever. However, I have good news. I’m almost done. Finally. And tomorrow is Club Penguin Memories’ third year – December 7, 2007 is when I made the website. What’s left? Furniture Catalogs & Stage Plays/Stage Catalogs. Hopefully I get most of it done today, if not tomorrow – I have 8.5% of the 3GB of storage WordPress gives you, orĀ 259.8 MB. Hopefully this is enough between these pages! I guess we’ll find out, eh? Wish me luck!

All the best,

Slowly But Surely

Hi everyone,

It’s been about a week and a half since I last made a blog post, so I thought I would give another update. I took a small break from the website, doing things in real life and working on becoming a Water Ninja – I’m about 90% of the way to getting the Torrent Mask. Anyway, I just spent the last two hours or so doing the Club Penguin Merchandise page. Rather than doing one page per item like I did on Piczo, I decided to put it all the pictures on one page in a gallery. If I did one page per toy I would have almost 400 pages, and that would take way too long.

All I have left to do is stage plays & catalogs. In 8 days it will mark three years of Club Penguin Memories, so most likely I’ll post another blog update then. (December 7th)

Thanks for hanging in there, and I hope you had a great Thanksgiving if you live in America. I’m off to do some homework so I can get it out of the way and focus on this website more. Peace!

About Two Thirds Done

Hi everybody,

I have another quick update for all of you. I’m about 2/3 done! I have done everything except these three categories:

Stage Plays
Catalogs

Stage Plays won’t take forever, but possibly a little while. Catalogs will most likely take about as long as the newspapers did, I think. My goal is to be done by Mid-December. Possibly December 7th. I’m unsure though.

Also, as you can see I added a “Needed Images” section on the sidebar, where I can request images of things I do not have on the website.
