Club Penguin Upgrade Spells Problems For Members

Danny Sullivan is reporting that his sons are having problems with their Club Penguin accounts after a recent upgrade. Both Penguins has changed color and lost items after a recent upgrade to the game.

If they hit Edit Player, the Color, Pin & Background tab shows nothing. That’s bad, because his penguin color was changed, and now he can’t change it back. And the Clothing and Award tab shows nothing. And these tabs mean like nothing to me, by the way.

It’s unclear if this is a system wide error or just happening sporadically. The Club Penguin Blog mentions a few bugs, but nothing system wide.

The Walt Disney Company purchased Club Penguin in a $700 million deal to grow its stable of online multiplayer games. Disney recently announced the closing of Virtual Magic Kingdom on May 21st which has resulted in over 11,000 fans signing a petition to keep the game open. The general feeling is that Disney wants to move players from the free VMK game to the pay games like Club Penguin.

  1. While i understand from my own online Cast Member Community http://afterthemouse.com mistakes happen, last night i accidently deleted a whole section – thank heavans for regular back-ups – but I would have hoped that the Disney web team would have done a little more test and adjust before launching any bad code.

    Mario9286 is my club Penguin name
    During the recent server upgrades at club Penguin
    I lost my red color and when I buy it back its gone next time I log on but that don’t bother me as much as losing a lot of furniture and items
    See when you don’t have items in your igloo they are kept in storage
    Storage is a picture of the item with the amount of that item next to it
    All my items in storage were reduced to 1 of each.
    Where I had 2 TVs there is 1 and 32 chairs there is 1 etc.
    The only multiple things I have left are in my igloo.
    It took me many hours of playing games to win money to buy things and they’re all gone
    There is a lot of things missing and its not fare
    I am very sad and angry that all my things can disappear like that.
    I sent info to their Tec support two days ago still no response.
    I’m not the only person with that problem.
    Could someone please help me?
    What’s the use in even playing anymore?
