Howdy, hi, and hello to all of you lovely Pogoians!

I hope you’ve had a wonderful and fun last few weeks here in Pogo. I was visiting my family in Wisconsin last week and was unable to answer any questions and comments in the blog, but I have returned and am looking forward to hearing how you are all doing.

I also wanted to share with you a photo I took at 4:30am one morning from the shores of Lake Nokomis in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. I hope you find the beauty and sense of calm in it that I do.

 

Reminder

Also please run the compatibility scan so I can show our tech team what your hardware setup is. Once you do that, please copy the information provided and past it into your message. The Pogo tech team requires this information in order to help you out as they need to know which browser, operating system, resolution, and Java/Flash versions, etc you’re using when experiencing these issues.

I have big news for you! Double Deuce Poker HD will be hitting the Pogo screen soon! Here are a few screenshots of the new and fabulous Double Deuce Poker HD! I’ll have more info below in the Construction Zone on when you will be able to play Double Deuce Poker HD.

 

Welcome to the Construction Zone! Here is where you will find the latest on game updates. What is currently “under construction” on Pogo? As often as I can, I’ll sit down with the Pogo team and get the latest info on which games are being worked on and what’s coming. I will always post more details when I have them available. Please understand updates are subject to change.

Please understand that unless an announcement comes directly from EA and/or Pogo, we cannot endorse it as true. All games and updates reported here in the Construction Zone have been given the “go ahead” and are on track to come out. Anything else that is reported is speculation right now.

Cookie Connect –  40 new levels coming in August!

Jewel Academy – 40 new levels coming at the end of August!

 

New Games

I know that I had mentioned that Pogo would not be releasing new games until later on this year, but we really wanted to get a few new games out to you sooner, and here they are!

Double Deuce Poker – Coming August 28!

Known Issues

Jet Set Solitaire – We’re aware of an issue in which the map navigation dot doesn’t currently correspond with the proper level to reach San Francisco. The workaround for this is to hit the left arrow and you will reach San Francisco. The team is aware of this issue and are currently working to fix it.

H5 games using Safari on mobile/tablets – We’re currently in the process of updating Pogo games so that they’re more fully supported on mobile and tablets, and the functionality of Pogo on mobile/tablets with Safari is part of this; currently, it’s working as intended on Safari as we to adjust games and their mobile functionality.

Multiple Games – Some players have reported seeing odd images for Rank Points. The images include $ and % signs. The team has investigated this issue and have found it to be an issue to those playing on the Safari browser while using the Mac Operating System. There is a fix in the works and this should be released in a later update in July. Please note: this does not affect gameplay or Rank status.

Google Chrome browser – Some players who are using the Google Chrome browser are receiving notifications that Pogo is not a secure site. This is due to Chrome changing their settings. Pogo is currently working with Chrome on updating things on our end to comply with the new standards that Chrome uses. Please understand that Pogo is still secure while using the Google Chrome browser.

 

Website updates

Badge Magic is on hiatus – Please click here for more information.

Super Secret Badges – Three new Super Secret Badges were released today!

CLUE will be taking a break from Pogo.com. The last new update for now will be on July 30, though you’ll be able to go back and re-play any episodes you’d like at any time, or even buy new episodes if you’d like. Click here to read more.

Pogo recommendations and specifications for your computer – The team has updated the recommended specifications for playing Pogo games smoothly; please click here in order to find out more about these recommendations to help ensure that Pogo games run more smoothly on your computer.

New Pogo Sign-In Experience – New Pogo sign-in experience will be starting to roll out in July and will end in October. Click here for an FAQ. Click here for the latest blog article that was just released Monday.

Chat – (No new update). We’re reviewing new chat solutions. I thank you for your feedback in the blogs on your Pogo chat experience. I’ve collected the feedback and alerted the Pogo team.

Every week I answer a non-technical question related to Pogo. We get lots of questions every week, so I try to focus on common themes or the same question coming from different folks. Please ask your non-technical related question in the comments section of the blog.

(For technical issues, please go to Pogo’s Help Page.)

A. Why can I not play the new Jellyfish Tank in Quinn’s Aquarium? Why am I not getting Starfishes? What are Sand Dollars?

Q. As you may already know, the new Tank for Quinn’s Aquarium is now available and it is called the Jellyfish Tank. In order to unlock the Jellyfish Tank, you must complete all tasks within the Tropical Tank. So even if you have completed all of the levels, you must also complete the tasks; this is the reason you may see your Sand Dollars go up and not your Blue Starfishes. You must use all of your Blue Starfishes and complete the tasks before the Jellyfish Tank will unlock.
Sand Dollars are just like the Seeds used in Solitaire Gardens in that they are awarded across all of the Tanks in Quinn’s. The characters in the game will need to use Sand Dollars to purchase new fish for the Aquariums as well as pay for a few other repairs around the Aquarium. You’ll collect Sand Dollars at the end of the game and receive more for collecting Shell Tiles.

In the Tropical Tank, you will earn Starfishes that are used to complete the Tasks. In the JellyFish Tank, you will earn JellyFishes to complete the Tasks.

 

Thank you so much for reading the July 17th edition of the Pogo Insider. I am so glad to be back here in the blog and grateful for you all. Good wishes to you all on the Jet Set Solitaire Badge Marathon going on right now. I was able to finish all five badges yesterday, and, as always, I did have a lot of fun doing this. Now I can work on my Crossword Cove HD badge I started over the weekend. (The Situation Normal Badge).

Have a great, and fun, day here in Pogo. Never forget, YOU matter.

Cheers,

Pogo Llama

  • Since there does not appear to be new set of costumes for Poppit Party in the near future, is there any possibility of adding more levels to the current game? Really love playing it.

  • Hi Pogo Llama
    What a beautiful picture. Thank you for sharing.

    • Thank you very much. It was a very special moment. Glad I could share it with you.

  • As most of us can appreciate, we know that due to Adobe issues, a lot of games will have to be changed to HDML. What I find most disappointing with the new releases of games such as World Class Solitaire and Turbo 21, is how JUVENILE they appear. We do not need fancy graphics, flashing lights, longer times between games, etc. We just want what we pay for–the ability to play the games that we love to play on POGO. I have seen a lot of negative responses and a lot of people will not be renewing their subscriptions, and if the childish appearance of the games continue, I am afraid that my husband and I will follow the exodus off your site.

    • Hello cdnwitch,
      I’m very sorry to hear that you would like to leave Pogo due to the graphics in the new H5 games. Thank you for your comment and I do hope you will change your mind.

  • Pogo Llama,

    I hope you had a nice vacation, we all need one and i know you work especially hard with pogo.

    Now my main question (questions) have to do with POPPIT BINGO. The album with all the badges took quite a while to complete. It took even more time than necessary because the game is a bit rushed so to speak. By that i mean that when it gets towards the end of the numbers being called the game DOES NOT ALLOW enough time to mark all the cards if you have the last number. With the badge where you needed to win 20 games with 6 or more bingos, almost every game where the game ended before i could mark the cards there were bingos i could have had but didn’t get because i couldn’t mark the card.

    That goes for the other badges where you need to daub so many numbers. If you aren’t allowed time to daub them you are missing out. Now i have played all the other bingo games and all of them give you few extra seconds at the end of the call to daub whatever numbers you have. I have read the “HOW TO PLAY” rules and it says that if you miss a bingo it will be picked up but it isn’t. Now when i have the power up with the gold numbers it was so frustrating when the last number would have popped the gold and i missed out. I know i am not the only player this is happening to.

    Now with pogo doing away with tokens for wins on almost all the HTML games it would help us some if the games would just operate properly. Can you please ask the tech department to look into this so the next group of badges don’t take so long.

    Thank you for listening.

    • Hello helcatfaust,
      Thanks for providing your feedback on Poppit! Bingo. I will let the team know your thoughts. I also apologize for any confusion on if you miss a bingo, having it be picked up as that is not the case. You do have to call your own bingos and if you miss one, it will not be called for you. However, there is a feature that will show you a bingo if you’ve missed one if you are within an active game.
      Thanks again for writing in on Poppit! Bingo.

      • That’s not completely true, at least if you’re a club member. If you use the Cactus Cannon after the normal game has stopped, it WILL pick up any bingos you’ve missed.

  • will there be stuff in the mini mall this week.

    • Hello HmSwtGrl,
      There will not be a Mini release this week. I’ll let you know here, in the blog, when the next release for the Minis will be. Thank you for asking.

  • hi nice pictuer

    • Thank you so very much, angelesinheavenn. I really appreciate your kind words. Have a wonderful week.

  • Why oh why is EA/Pogo ending Clues, it’s the best H.O.G.?

  • The picture looks very calm, serene. Nice picture :) Thank you Pogo for the, No Limit Texas Hold’em badges. Really enjoyed doing them ….

    • Hi KhloeKat1. I’m really glad you enjoyed the No Limit TX Hold’em Badges. I’m always grateful to hear when players are enjoying the different badges that are released. Is it one of your fav Pogo games?

  • Love the Marathons but could you please make the challenges different from Jet Set, Cookie Connect and Jewel Academy. Getting tired of them all the time. But do keep up the great work.

  • I know Pogo wants to sell Gems and make money but this past week I have met numerous players who have told me how they are buying lots of gems because they can’t get the marathon badges any other way. I keep telling people two things:

    Pogo always says you can get every marathon badge WITHOUT buying any gems or paying for anything.

    Secondly, I have gotten almost every badge for every marathon and I haven’t used gems for them; I use gems to purchase badge albums!

    Players need to ask for help and quit complaining about badges and marathon badges being too difficult. Frequently they aren’t that hard if someone takes the time to explain how to play the game, or a new strategy, to you!

    • Hi Puzzler,
      It is true that we make it so that you can complete all Challenges without the purchase of Gems. I hope you had a good time with the Badge Marathon! Thank you for your comment and I hope you have a wonderful week.

  • Welcome back Pogo Llama! The lake in your photo looks like a lovely, quiet place to enjoy nature and a refreshing swim. Thanks for sharing.

    • Hello Phoenix,
      Thank you for saying so. It was a lovely moment to capture and very fun to swim. My niece really enjoyed using that large blow up ducky, too. :)

  • Hi Pogo_Llama,
    What a beautiful lake! I hope you had a wonderful vacation.

    Several weeks ago, I posted that some Monopoly Slots badges had disappeared. You helped and the badges were again available for purchase. Thank you for that help.

    What I didn’t notice at that time is that there are some PBAs that are also missing. They are the Earth Day Album, the Slots of Fun Album, and the Puppy Getaway Album.

    Can you please have those albums put back on the list of PBAs that are available for purchase? Thank you very much.

  • More Cookie Connect and Jewel Academy in August!!!! Thank you – they are my favourite games.

    • Hi Foxy,
      Then I can see that August will be a very good month for you here in Pogo! :)

  • I am so over the moon that Double Deuce Poker HD is coming! You have made my day Pogo Llama! Thank you!

    • You’re most welcome, Nayner52. I can’t wait to have you play it. Have a wonderful week.

  • Hi Pogo_Llama,

    I have a suggestion regarding the opinion poll that appears on Badge Central every week. It’s not important, but just a thought I had.

    The top part (What badge did we like better, both the same, or neither) covers everything well.

    On the question for each badge, sometimes I can’t answer the time portion accurately, so I don’t do the poll at all. Sometimes I play a little here and there and lose track of the total amount of time. Not wanting to over- or underestimate, I don’t answer at all. Then there are times when I like the game but I didn’t have time to do the badge.

    Maybe they could add a couple of lines to each badge section on the poll?

    When we don’t know how long it took: Not a clue, I have no idea, Who knows? or something similar.
    When we like the game all right but we didn’t have time: Didn’t have time to do badge.

    Thank you.

    • Hello Nla,
      Another great suggestion. I will keep this in mind and see what can be done.

  • Hi Pogo Llama its great to have you back missed you. What a beautiful picture. Hope you had a wonderful vacation. Missed You Very Much . You are the greatest.Love Pogo Too but you make having Pogo Enjoyable even more. Having someone like you to talk to once in awhile is great . GLAD YOUR BACK

    • Aww thank you so, so much, bvlady45. I hope you’re having a great weekend and will have an even better week. Take care.

  • The comment above regarding the images ($ and %) appearing in Rank Points may be correct BUT it is also affecting me. I am using a PC with Windows 10 and using Firefox. So I think the team might want to broaden their investigation/fix.

  • Why can’t I earn tokens in any of the HD games? I don’t even play some of my favorites because of that. The games say I earn tokens but my token total never increases.

    • Hello putplefan,
      Back in May, I answered a Pogo Insider question about tokens. In the article, I stated that, in the future, the current token system will be replaced with a new awarding system. Please do click on the link above and then scroll on down to the Insider Question area to read more. Thanks for asking and for being a part of Pogo.

  • Just wondering what Super Secret Badges are. Thanks

    • Hi King,
      So the Super Secret Badges are awarded when you complete a Mix-n-Match Album of 20 badges. If you do get a Super Secret Badge, you’ll find them in your Special Edition Badge Album. The Super Secret Badges are awarded randomly, so you never know which one of the designs you’ll get. But, you will only get one once you complete a Mix-n-Match Album of 20 badges. (Please keep that part in mind).

  • What are super secret badges and how do I find them?

      Thank you for enjoying the photo and finding its beauty. That means a lot to me. Have a great week.

      • Thank you so much! You have a wonderful week as well and its great to have you back!

  • Why do any games you mess with and supposedly make better or any new games you put on “FLASH” so bad I am unable to play them? Or, if I try and play them, it takes forever as I can only play about 10 to 15 minutes at a time. Some I can’t play at all when they flash so. If this is a technical problem, I don’t seem to be able to get the help I need. Plus, I’m not sure what I’m doing to get help as I’m not computer savvy. I know how to get to the games, but more than that forget it. I don’t have anyone who can help me either.
    Thank you

    • Hello runtchief,
      Oh no! Well I definitely want you to have someone to help you out if you’re experiencing problems with Pogo games. Please do this: Go to Pogo customer support by clicking here and fill out a support ticket. Someone from the Pogo customer support team will reach out to you and be able to help you out. Please let me know if that helps.

  • I heard POGO is phasing out tokens. Is that true & if so, what are they replacing them with?

    • Hello Shazzbat,
      Thanks for your question. Back in May, I answered a Pogo Insider question about tokens.

  • Can you please tell me why when people are being reported nothing ever gets done. There is a big problem in Everyone wins bingo in the passing rooms. These people come in and start to black out and then start calling people names and antaganizing everyone in the room. They have been reported many many times and nothing seems to be done. What is the sense of having passing rooms is they can come in and black out. If the bonus is taken away in the passing rooms that will end the problem I think. these people just like to cause trouble when we are trying to enjoy the game. please help us.

    • Hi Coffeemama123,
      I’m sad to hear there is abuse going on in Everyone Wins Bingo. It really does make me sad.
      I do want you to know you are allowed to play the game the way YOU would like to and no one deserves to have anger directed at them.
      I hope you are able to have fun playing here in Pogo. Remember you can always report an abusive player by right clicking on their name in chat and then clicking on “report abuse”. My wish is that it doesn’t come to that, but the option is there if needed.

      Players, please be kind. Have fun and be kind. You never know what is going on with another person and many just want to have a fun time playing their favorite Pogo games.

  • When the new Word Whomp HD is released, does that mean we will no longer be getting tokens for our games? If so, this stinks!

    • Hello jmcbug,
      Word Whomp HD will not include tokens. Back in May, I answered a Pogo Insider question about tokens.

  • why do most all your games take place on the other side of the world?? being Texas born and bred why do you not have more games take place in north America?? Texas would be my wish. HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

    THANKS FOR LISTENING

    • Hi Janis,
      Thanks for your question. I believe many of our games deal with travel as it’s a theme many players really enjoy. Which games in particular are you speaking of?
      Thank you for the birthday wishes! Have a great weekend. :)

  • Hi Pogo_Llama,

    I have a request… When the requirements for a badge involve amassing a large amount of points, can you ask the staff to please use commas in the large numbers? It’s really hard sometimes to notice if a number is 10000 or 100000 without the commas (10,000 or 100,000). One example is the Jet Set Journey Lap 3 Badge which requires accumulating 150000 (150,000) points.

    Thank you, Pogo_Llama, and keep up the good work.

    • Hello nla,
      This is a great suggestion and one I will talk to the team about. Thank you for expressing this concern. Have a really great week.

  • Thanks for my gems, I got them today ! Thanks for free badges too ! Please never change Pogo Bowl cause it’s fun playing against friends and seeing them there.

  • how do i change my profile from private back to public

    • Hi real,
      To change your profile from private please click on the drop down arrow beside your name at the top of Pogo.com. You will see the options to make your profile public or private. Select which option you’d like and you’ll be set.
      Thank you!

  • Love the idea of Word Whomp going to be upgraded but would love to see the orginal verison stay around for a few more months. Isn’t there some way that pogo could allow this to happen. I am getting close to ranking out and I really enjoy the game as it is.

    • Hi Birdlovers2,
      Thank you so much for your feedback. Unfortunately we will be unable to leave up the original Flash Word Whomp when the new Word Whomp HD is released. I really do believe you will be able to rank out before WWHD is released in September. You can do it. :)

  • Pogo_Llama, You mentionned 3 Super Badges earlier being released. I am sorry I must have lost the memo on this? What is this?

    • Hi Madam,
      The Super Secret Badges are awarded when you complete a Mix-n-Match Album of 20 badges. If you do get a Super Secret Badge, you’ll find them in your Special Edition Badge Album.

  • looking forward to the double deuce changeover.. i have always enjoyed the casino games hoping they will change over the other poker games as well as blackjack..also i know a lot of people have problems with java games so the amount of people playing pool has dropped off i hope pogo will also look into changing it into the new format also..i did notice that after i completed the jet marathon.. new locations were released go figure right.. but i now have a lot of just two stars instead of the 3 i believe i had.. because i had completed all the levels..getting all the stars needed..wondering why so many now are just showing 2

    • Hello Beyechonjr,
      I’m so glad you’re excited for Double Deuce HD! It’s going to be a great game.
      Have your stars returned to your Jet Set game or are they still missing?

  • HI pogo-Llama nice picture and welcome back. It sure would be nice to have Clue secret & spies to continue i really enjoy playing and always look forward to new episodes.i understand 5 years is a long time to make these episodes. thanks for all the games pogo makes for us to play

  • Good afternoon Pogo_Llama.

    Thanks for the new free episode of Claire Hart: Secret in the Shadows. I enjoyed meeting Will and Lavender’s twins, Lilac and Sapphire. They are so cute.

  • “The team has investigated this issue and have found it to be an issue to those playing on the Safari browser while using the Mac Operating System.”

    I’ve been getting this too but I use Windows 10 OS and Microsoft Edge and IE browsers.

    I’m enjoying the new Jetset Solitaire levels, but wish they could be released more frequently like they are for Solitaire Gardens and Mahjong Escape. It would be nice to get some new cities to visit too rather than re-runs of already visited cities. I’ve also noticed that some levels that previously had 3 stars don’t anymore – is there any info on that?

    Nice picture, it looks lovely there.

    • Hello gunjabaginggoiks,
      Are you still missing stars in Jet Set?
      Thank you!

  • I’m running Windows 10 also and using firefox browser and I get the dollar sign in rank points but so far I’ve only seen it in beaker creatures. Very nice picture you sent us from Wisconsin and, yes, I can see what a relaxing setting that is.So very nice, especially the sunset. Thanks for sharing.

  • Welcome Back !! I am sure you needed a great vacation. I was wondering who I would contact about the size of my tickets in Poppit Bingo. They changed the font size of the money so I can read them but I have so many tickets I can’t read the amount (not that its going to matter). I am sure the team is busy with more important things but I was just wondering 177/20.

    Thanks and have a great week!!

    • Hello boogie4whl,
      Thank you for your request and letting me know the font size on the Cactus Cash is not large enough for some players with visual issues. I really do appreciate the heads up about this and it is very important. Have a wonderful week.

  • Well, my good mood has been shattered. I finished #5 of the Jet Set Marathon but couldn’t start another due to your site problems. Okay, so I continue to play the new levels until all is corrected. By the way? These new levels are insane. Way too many times to play Wild Horse and now State Capital is looking to be just as difficult. Then, your site is fixed and guess what? My badge progress was wiped out. That’s it. No more for me. This is NOT fun.

    • Hello As85382,
      Congratulations. You did win the Jet Set Journey Lap 5 Badge for Jet Set Solitaire. It was not deleted or erased. If you go to your profile page and click on settings, you will see it was won, and awarded to you, on July 18, 2018. Thank you for playing in the Badge Marathon.

  • Hi…

    So happy for you that you had some well deserved R & R time with your family in Wisconsin~~great pic, thx for sharing :)
    72 yrs ago, I was born in Milwaukee..in St. Mary’s Hospital..I remember playing in the ton’s of snow as a little girl..I loved the Fall and Spring season’s the best lol
    WELCOME BACK Pogo_Llama~~YOU WERE MISSED..
    Thank you for ALL you do in Pogo for us member’s..
    Di-Hard 16 yrs Pogoian! LOL

    • Hello fellow Wisconsinite!
      I’d have to say summer and fall were always my favorite WI seasons. I liked being able to swim in the lakes and the fall was/is so beautiful.
      I missed the Pogo community and thought of you all a bunch. Have a wonderful week and thank you for your 16 years!

  • Is great to have the new Word Whomp HD comming sooner than expected :) but in the future, can you please please pretty please let us know about new games comming at least 2-3 months in advance?
    For those of us trying for all ranks before the games are replaced by new HTML5 versions, the more time in advance the better because we can plan ahead our playing time.

    Right now I had to reschedule all my game/play time and guess I won’t have much time to play games/badges other than Word Whomp and even then probably I won’t have enough time to earn the last rank as planned before.
    For games that are long to rank up like WW, one day less means lots of rank progress miss, imagine a week or month less.

    Please please take this into consideration with future games.
    Can we even have an “official” list of games that will be converted, just a list, no estimeated time or release date, just the name of the games.

    Thank you very much :)

    • Hello vane jarekjh,
      Thank you for your feedback and I do wish to be able to give the community more notice of upcoming games. It’s a bit hard to estimate as the process of creating and updating games does take quite a bit of time and then there’s the testing that goes into it all to make sure it plays properly. I do try my best, though. Thanks again for asking and have a great week.

  • I have a question. Why are almost all the HD games we are playing doesn’t earn us tokens? Doesn’t seem worth playing them when there is no reward!

    • Hello Pauls,
      Back in May, I answered a Pogo Insider question about tokens. In the article, I stated that, in the future, the current token system will be replaced with a new awarding system. Please do click on the link above and then scroll on down to the Insider Question area to read more. Thanks for asking and for being a part of Pogo.

  • Beautiful photo. How nice that you were able to get away and visit family in such a nice setting. Glad to have you back.
    Double Deuce poker looks fantastic! I hope the team can transition more Java games to HD. Especially Boardwalk Sea Ball and Quick Quack. I appreciate all their work in updating the games. Bravo!

    • Thank you, betressa. I can’t wait for more and more converted games as well. I’ll keep you all posted on what’s to come as much as I am able. Have a beautiful week.

  • I, too, want to thank all of you at Pogo that worked to keep Scrabble and the Monopoly games. It’s so great to be heard. It means a lot!

    Just a comment on the recent Marathon games. I have chosen not to play Jet Set…I am actually tired of seeing it as a challenge so many times. I also prefer Marathons when they are a variety of games…not just the same one over and over.

    Thanks for listening. Glad you had some good time off. Hope you missed the mosquitos as big as horses in Wisconsin. lol

    • Hi Care,
      Thank you for your thoughts on the Badge Marathons. You are so right that it definitely is everyone’s own choice as to what they play and do not play here on Pogo. There are lots of other games and things to do on Pogo, for sure. I hope you have a great weekend and I’m glad I missed those giant horse-flies! Haha!

  • Multiple Games – Some players have reported seeing odd images for Rank Points. The images include $ and % signs. The team has investigated this issue and have found it to be an issue to those playing on the Safari browser while using the Mac Operating System. There is a fix in the works and this should be released in a later update in July. Please note: this does not affect gameplay or Rank status.
    I have to comment on this. I play on Internet 11 and firefox and I too have seen the dollar sing. Not on every game and not on every day. It only happens on the first game. If I play more then one game it will not do it agin. Hope this helps

  • Gma Please tell me if the following games will ever get additional ranks added to them, Trivia, Battleship Naval Combat, Scrabble, Spades, and Monopoly.

    What about more winning gift cards, who controls that, THANKS

    • Hello trandmac,
      The games you just listed will not be getting new ranks in their current Flash state. They will get new ranks if they are converted to H5.
      Thank you!

  • Hiya there Pogo_Llama,

    Aside from my other comment I made (which is still in moderation), once again, welcome back and hope you had a great time with family. BTW, loved the picture as, I being here in Arizona and dealing with monsoons and dust storms and un-godly heat, I could imagine the peaceful tranquility of it all while you were there over looking that lake. Now…. I was just sitting here this morning putting together the daily updates I send to my mother, aunt, wife and daughter about what’s new and any upcoming changes and events, and a realization hit. With tokens going away/being phased out and all, what will become of events like the Sunday Token Social or the Triple Token Thursdays. I have other questions and comments but will leave those for another time. I will close by saying happy birthday Club Pogo! It is hard to believe I have been a Club Pogo member for 14 of those 15 years :) :)

    Any ways thanks for all the info you try to keep ua up on and all you do. :)

    • Hello again Kat,
      Thanks for loving the picture. It was a really special moment for me and I’m grateful to be able to share it with you all here in the Pogo Community.
      Regarding TBT and STS, we’re working on some ideas and will roll them out with time. :)
      Have a great weekend, Kat.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the additional 3 M&M completion badges. It’s nice having a few extras in circulation, makes it more exciting when you don’t know what badge you are going to get for completing the album. There was a M&M completion badge put into circulation in 2010, and it took me until October 2015 to get it. It’s still one of my favorites.

    • Hi MomsBassetHound,
      I totally agree it is nice to have some extra SS badges in the mix. :)
      I hope your weekend went well and I wish you a good week.
