Editorial: Army Growth Requires the Utmost Dedication

In the modern Club Penguin army landscape, armies do not seem to be working as hard as they used to, especially infamous major armies like the Rebel Penguin Federation and Ice Warriors. This laziness has affected their sizes and overall position on the Club Penguin Army Headquarters Top Ten and the Club Penguin Army Network Top Ten alike. While these armies are falling, the Templars of Club Penguin has overtaken them in terms of size. At this point in time, the Templars has been #1 on the Club Penguin Army Headquarters Top Ten for more than half a year and is maxing 55+ on a constant basis. How did the Templars of Club Penguin manage to achieve such great heights?

On April 4, 2018, the Templars of Club Penguin was founded by Xing. Since its upbringing, the army has seen conflicts with numerous armies, including the Rebel Penguin Federation, Help Force, Army of Club Penguin, and Recon Federation of Club Penguin. Like most armies, the Templars started out small before growing into one of the most feared armies in the modern Club Penguin army community.

How does an army grow? The answer is obvious: recruiting, registering, and reminding. These three jobs are the most essential chores an army can perform. Without these, your army is weak on the battlefield. You recruit to get people into your army’s server, register to get people signed up on the Club Penguin private server you have events and battles on, and remind to reassure and prepare people about upcoming events. If you strive to be an excellent army, you must do these things.

Recruiting, registering, and reminding may be hard tasks, but willing to do these things can be even harder. To increase in numbers, you must live for recruiting, registering, and reminding. Wanting these things is not enough. You must thirst them. All armies do these tasks, but some do not see size improvements. This is because they do not will recruiting, registering, and reminding hard enough. The Templars of Club Penguin lives to do these jobs because they understand that success typically comes from hard work.

The Templars would not be in the position they are today if it were not for their hard work ethic. They would be comparable to today’s Rebel Penguin Federation, Ice Warriors, and Army of Club Penguin if they did not strive to grow. That is what sets the Templars apart from every other army in today’s community. The utmost dedication is required to grow an army. Without it, you are bound to collapse.

Editorial: Bias and Ignorance and the Legends Community Vote

About a day or two ago, community voting began for this year’s legends inductions. Community voting is one of the biggest problems I have with how legends inductions is being done this year.

This year, community voting is being done at a massive scale. By this, I mean that everyone has a say in the community voting. I see this as a big issue because this will allow people with a great liking or distaste to a legend nominee or legend nominee’s army to vote. The army community is very split right now, especially between the Templars and the Black Ice Alliance (the alliance composed of the Rebel Penguin Federation and the Ice Warriors). Allowing biased members of the army community to vote may impact this year’s legends inductions in an unfavorable way. One day in the future, we may have a vote where we can merely vote strictly on performance and without absolutely any prejudice, but as of right now that doesn’t seem possible.

Armies such as the Templars and People’s Imperial Confederation are asking members within their server to vote in a certain way. Several members within these servers may have little to no understanding of the army community or the people nominated this year. Frankly, ignorant people should have absolutely no say regarding who gets inducted as an Army Legend.

Having a community vote may be tradition, but I do not care. Bad traditions should end. We need to either get rid of this system of voting or replace it with a better community voting system as soon as possible.

Choose logic over lunacy.

Editorial: My Philosophy Regarding Content on the CPA Wiki

I have decided to take to this website once more to release possibly the first editorial this website has ever seen.

As some reading this may be aware, I am an Administrator within the Club Penguin Army Wiki. What I state throughout this editorial is not necessarily the opinion of the Wiki itself, but at least of my own.

The Club Penguin Army Wiki has been a hub of information regarding the Club Penguin army community since the mid to late-2000s. Its information has been used by community individuals and community organizations/leagues alike.

The Wiki allows people to edit and create pages with ease and liberty, although that can sometimes be a costly consequence.

On the Club Penguin Army Wiki, there are countless pages with a great lack of information and quality (1, 2, 3, etc.). These pages have existed on the Wiki for a long time and have barely been touched by contributors. A very possible reason why these pages haven’t been touched is due to the general lack of information on whom or what the pages are on. If the event or person is significant and the page has been completed to a high standard, then I have no problem with keeping the page in specific on the Wiki, regardless of whether there is little to no information available on it or them. I believe that if these pages do not meet these criteria, they should be eliminated from the Wiki entirely.

The Wiki has its fair share of content labelled “for fun.” This means that the content in specific should not be taken seriously. I do not know where this trend started, but I see no reason for non-serious content to exist on the Wiki. The Wiki is a serious institution, and people may take us less seriously if we continue to allow this content on the Wiki.

My opinions regarding the LEGOMAN scandal will remain private for the time being, however let it be known that I am not happy with him due to his several biased contributions to the Wiki.

Although the Wiki has content I believe need to be fixed, there is content on the Wiki has that I think is absolutely wonderful and brilliant. For example, the Teutons page is an amazing piece of content. It is amazing because of the quality of information it has.

The Wiki will always change. New content will always be added and old content will always be edited. The Wiki is not like a news organization or an army league. Our institution has lived for several years and will continue providing valuable information to the members of the army community. Long live the Wiki.

As partly stated at the beginning of this article, this post merely reflects my opinions on the Club Penguin Army Wiki and the flaws and perfections I see throughout several pieces of content on the website. Thank you for taking the time to read this editorial. I wrote this in like an hour and it is about midnight now, so please realize that before you come to your own opinion from this editorial.

The Future of the Club Penguin Army Coffee Table

Hello. I am Cabin, a Founder of the Club Penguin Army Coffee Table.

I genuinely believe there is still potential for the Club Penguin Army Coffee Table, even in today’s strange army climate. The likelihood that I will return this organization back to its news format of its first, second, and third era is highly unlikely. Instead, I will most likely, if I ever gain the courage to revive this organization, put it into a unique format which focuses primarily on interviewing prominent members of the army community.

At this present moment in time, I am targeting my time and energy toward my army career as Leader-in-Training of the People’s Imperial Confederation and as Senior Content Moderator of the Club Penguin Army Wiki. This means that currently I do not have enough time and energy to focus on brewing a revival for this organization.

Perhaps one day this organization will see another day, but as of right now it remains dead.

Club Penguin Army Coffee Table Has Been Revived (Again)

On April 1, 2020, Cabin decided to revive Club Penguin Army Coffee Table (CPACT) for the 2nd time in its history.

Club Penguin Army Coffee Table was still called Club Penguin Armies Coffee Table from its past life, but now that the Club Penguin Armies league is dead, I thought the name was no longer relevant (it also sounds weird). Because of this, I had decided to change the name back to what it was through 2015-2018, and a little bit of 2019.

Now that I have revived this, I am planning on adding new content to the website! I am planning on letting people post opinion posts pertaining to Club Penguin armies (I will outline how this would work in a future article).

I have already added new content to the website. We have a new header (created by former CPACT CEO, Dino), and I say it looks amazing compared to the headers we used to have.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the CPACT team (so far only I am a member), click here to go to our Apply page and follow the instructions provided! I hope to see you working for us soon!

Interview with Fantasy Force Leader Lapis

This past week, two new armies were ranked in the top ten on CPA’s Top Ten Armies post. One of them, Army of Club Penguin (also known as ACP), is an older army returning to CPA. The other, Fantasy Force, is a true newcomer. In honor of their quick success, I had the opportunity to interview Lapis, the founder of Fantasy Force, about her experience forming a new army.


 

Mochii: So to start, why did you decide to create Fantasy Force?

Lapis: Well, it goes way back to when I first started armies. I was in an army, the Royal Family of CPO, and I never got a promo for about 2 months of being quite active, and my friend was making an army named Warriors. Warriors eventually got closed down as my friend couldn’t lead it anymore, which lead to me making Musicians. That closed down and I tried to create another army, but it was hard as I was experiencing some issues with playing CPPS, so I took the time to join an army. I joined Cosmic while I developed a good army and I liked the idea of themed ranks like the Royal Family of CPO. So, I made a royal family but with more fantasy ranks, like knights and dragons for example. And that’s how Fantasy Force came to be.

Mochii: That’s really neat! What would you say has been the most difficult part of starting your army?

Lapis: Recruiting and getting members. CPR bans a lot and people ignore you, throw snowballs at you, shout “NO,” or say you’re a virus or a bot. It can be hard trying to ignore them, they can be quite rude. But in the end, I sometimes manage to get 1 or 2 members.

Mochii: Oh, I definitely understand that! So, on the other hand, what has been the most rewarding part?

Lapis: That’s a hard question, but it has to be seeing my members chat together, making a community.

Mochii: How did it feel to rank in the top ten armies during Fantasy Force’s first week?

Lapis: Amazing to know we actually made it in the top 10, and hopefully this week we will be able to get further up.

Mochii: What do you think sets Fantasy Force apart from other armies?

Lapis: The fact that we have 30 ranks to earn and plan on adding more. We also try not to ping too much and have dedicated roles for pings, so people can decide if they want that ping or not.

Mochii: Do you have and advice for someone thinking about starting their own army?

Lapis: I would get some help, like friends. I have a few friends who have helped a lot along the way. I would also get some army experience by spending some time joining an army while you develop your own army.

Mochii: That makes sense. I definitely agree that army experience would help, and friends are never a bad thing! Those are all the questions I have today. Thanks so much for your time!

Return of ACP

ACP, or Army of Club Penguin, is an army founded back in September of 2006, being the first organized army in Club Penguin Army history. They were a strong army, with many leaders and many members, they were a strong force in the CPA community, reaching masses of 30+. But alas, they have closed in September 29, 2017, believing they have met their fate. But they have rejoined the battlefield this year (2019), and are a very respectable force.

I decided to interview recreator and former leader, Mchappy:

I was also able to get an interview with the leader of ACP, Chainpro:

[UPDATE] New Changes to CPACT

As the new Chief Executive Officer of Club Penguin Armies Coffee Table, I am announcing some new changes.

  1. I have brought back a Board of Directors. They will be the people who will manage the organization. And with that, the positions of Chief Informative, and Outreach Officer, and Chief Graphic Designer have been established.

   2. We now will have an official editor and graphic designing team. Assistant editors will be trusted reporters who we know can be helpful in day-to-day reporting. Graphic designers will help create graphics for our future articles and the organization as a whole.

   3. Until further notice, @shallissa shall be made acting Chief Operations Officer until we can get more editors.

   4. An Audit board and Advisory board have been made. Advisors are usually retired Board Directors who we can trust to advise the Board on how to run the organization. The Audit Board will be responsible for making sure this organization stays unbiased and ethical. Most likely they will write monthly reports on how the organization is doing.

   5. We are looking for new applicants and partners. If you own an CPA or CP related server, I am willing to discuss the potentiality of a partnership. And even if you’re not good at editing, writing, or graphics, you are still welcomed to Apply. We can successful train you to become the profession you might be interested in.

  6. Due to me becoming CEO, @romanprincey will now be the Head Reporter.

More changes are on the way. If you have any concerns, questions, or queries, my DMs (Dino#1700) are always open. 🙂
