PSA Missions

Main article: PSA Secret Missions

The PSA Missions section (URL: clubpenguin.com/fun-stuff/psa-missions) was a special section where you could play the old PSA Missions. The missions were moved here on December 6, 2012, because the VR Room became inaccessible when the Tube Transport was badly damaged by Herbert P. Bear during Operation: Blackout. The PSA Missions were later moved back into the game on June 11, 2015.

Apps

The Apps (previously named Mobile; changed in 2015) section (URL: clubpenguin.com/apps) was a section where you could see Club Penguin's apps. The shown applications were the Club Penguin App, Sled Racer and SoundStudio app.

From February 2017 to March 31, 2017, the mobile section led the player to ClubPenguinIsland.com.

What's New Blog

Main article: What's New Blog

The What's New Blog (URL: clubpenguin.com/blog) was a blog where you could see "what's new" in Club Penguin - and players would usually post comments showing their appreciation, or ask a question. The main editors of the blog were: Spike Hike, Polo Field, Ninja, Megg, Daffodaily5 (She posted the Featured Fashions and Penguin of the Week) and Federflink1 (A German blogger) now retired.

Membership

Main article: Membership

The Membership section (URL: clubpenguin.com/membership) was where you could make your penguin a member by buying a membership. It also included FAQ's about membership and reasons to become a member.

On January 31, 2017, membership could not be purchased anymore, due to the discontinuation of the game.

Parents

The Parents section (URL: clubpenguin.com/parents) was where parents of kids who have made accounts could review the child's account, like how many times the player has been banned, how many times has the player logged on, how many coins does he/she has, change the chat mode, turn on the Parental Timer, change passwords, and manage memberships.

Products

The Products (previously named Toys; changed in February 2013) section (URL: clubpenguin.com/products) first opened on the Club Penguin website on August 31, 2006. It was originally called the Club Penguin Online Shop, and it only sold Plush Puffles. Since October 2008, the store started to sell newer toys, such as Trading Cards, plushes, Mix & Match sets, books, etc. Later on, other products such as shirts and phone cases could be found in the page.

It was removed on October 2016 and was replaced by the Apps section.

Past Versions

There were five versions of the website's main page, including the current one. The first one was from October 24, 2005 to March 2006, the second from 2006 to 2008, the third one from 2008 to 2011, the fourth one from 2011 to December 2012 and the fifth and last one from December 2012 to March 2017.

Happy77's blog post about the downtime.

On June 20, 2011, Club Penguin forgot to renew their DNS (Domain Name System), so the site went down for an entire day, sparking concerns from players.[2][3][4]

Happy77 posted this onto the What's New Blog regarding the situation:

Hello Penguins!

UPDATE: Club Penguin is available for most players again. But we have heard that some of you can't see it yet. Thanks for letting us know. The team is still working on fixing any issues with the site. Thanks for your continued patience with this.

As some of you heard, Club Penguin's domain name (clubpenguin.com) had a technical glitch this weekend. The technical glitch has been fixed, but it will take some time for the site to appear as it should around the world.

Remember-- when in doubt, talk to a parent or guardian if something looks suspicious for you.

July 2013 downtime

On July 15, 2013, at around 1:39 PM PST, Polo Field made a tweet reporting that Club Penguin was down.[5] Unlike other downtimes, which usually lasted for minutes, this one lasted for around 12 hours. Some reports indicate that the cause for this downtime was a Denial-of-service attack executed by unknown users.

For the following hours several tweets were posted by Spike Hike, Polo Field and Club Penguin regarding the situation, and later moving on to discuss other topics to dissipate the fear on the players.

At around 1:45 AM, Club Penguin posted a tweet on their Twitter saying that the servers were back online and that the team were squashing final bugs.[6]

Minor downtime of November 26, 2014

From the afternoon of November 26, 2014 until December 2, 2014, the What's New Blog temporarily shut down due to it "updating stuff behind the scenes". It is currently unknown to what the downtime was for, though it is believed it was for bug fixes.

Trivia

  • In the original version of the homepage, pressing the "N" in the word Club Penguin made a ninja appear beside the logo.
