My name is Michael, as some of you may already know. If you’ve read the ACP Saga (which I highly recommend, as it is the seminal work in CP army literature, if one can get over the typos and mild narcissism), you’ll know that the ACP was founded September 29, 2006. Tell your grandkids about that date because it was the beginning of an era. We were giants and Club Penguin was our stomping grounds. From Mammoth to Breeze, from the dojo to the snow forts, we were a force. At our best we were the best, and we did it with pride and class. We were the pinnacle.
As memory of Club Penguin recedes, the digital fossils of this community—the Army of Club Penguin specifically and the army community it birthed generally—will drift away in a sea of ambient data. Yet it will always be here. This website and all of the times had within it—good and bad, funny and frustrating, elating and surreal—will remain, frozen in time, waiting for some internet anthropologist to one day find it and think “Damn, wasn’t that something.” I don’t know if there’s any significance in that.
Ok, enough of that waxing poetic bullshit. Bottom line, this was a good thing and I’m glad it happened. We were all part of it, and it wouldn’t be what it was without you.
PS. I’d like to shout out a few people in particular: Boomer, Shab, Commando, Shadow, Akabob, Penquin Jim, Goozgooz, Tom Yellow, Koolaidman7, David Shawn, Gorond, Nrop (lol), Rapidy, Flip, Kenneth1000, Iasgae56, Mchappy, Noka8, Mazchaster, Dr Nono Jr, Matre10, Bobcayboy10, Saint1119, Dryvit, Slider568, Seanehawk, Us Soilder, Orcacam7, Headofpolice, Casiusbrutus, Person1233, Pink Mafias, Zippy500, Abercrombie29, Db Penguin, Big Balla, Vital Viper, RFS (even though you sucked), Fort57, Kg007, Kingfunks, Sf1998, CollinZFresh, and MANY others. Love you all.
PPS. I may stop by the chat a few times in the next couple days if anyone wants to say what up. It’s been a while so don’t be offended if I don’t remember you right away.
I (and Boomer) invite any former ACP leaders to say few words below. You can edit it yourself or send comments to Boomer or Shab. Peace.
Edit from the editors (whoever they are): If you’d like, fill out the form below to receive updates. This will make it easier to contact people if we’d like to schedule a reunion in the future: https://goo.gl/forms/Q4sxhszssEcfMDk62
