    The Silly Spotlight: Slappy

    Posted by Sir Max on February 2, 2016 12:00 PM

     

    We haven't talked about Slappy much ever since... Doomsday. You know. The day that the Cogs invaded our town. But there's plenty of new Toons though who hardly know the fellow. Who is Slappy, you ask? We're back for another issue of The Silly Spotlight to tell you all about him!

    Flippy's Foe

    Back when Toontown was founded, things were simple. There were very few residents, and the town could live in peace. Mayor Mickey decided, however, that it was best to hold an election between the two most "Toon Enough" Toons he knew: Flippy Doggenbottom and Slappy Quackintosh.

    Don't let that headline fool you -- although Slappy was Flippy's foe, they were great pals. While Flippy used Pies and Fireworks to woo the town, Slappy used Jellybeans and Hot Air Balloons. He even turned Toons into Polar Bears on Christmas!

    Flippy was the underdog of the election, quite literally, due to Slappy's charisma and even higher Laff points than Flippy. (Back then, he had the highest around -- which was only 42! Ha!)

    The Rightful Ruler

    The official Toon Council Presidential Election between Flippy and Slappy was hosted by Alec Tinn, where all Toons could put their vote on who they wanted as President. You may think that Flippy won, since he is our current President, but... It was actually Slappy.

    Slappy won the vote by just a few hundred more than Flippy, but just as the celebration begun, something unexpected happened. A robot flew down from the sky, dressed in a fancy suit with a big smile. A Yesman. Slappy didn't know what was happening -- no one did -- and he went sad in Toontown Central. We haven't seen him since.

    Searching for Slappy

    Flippy was able to stop the Yesman with one of his prized pies -- which made him the one to discover the Cog's weakness. The invasion only grew larger from there, but we were able to fight them back so that no Cog will ever enter the playground again. Flippy won the Presidency by default, but only accepted it reluctantly.

    It was during the first Toon Council meeting that Lord Lowden Clear arrived, showing off his Cog Disguise and Cog battling tactics. He said that he had no idea where to even begin looking for Slappy... But Doctor Surlee, however, had a couple of ideas.

    The hunt is on, Toons, and it has been ever since his disappearance. The Cogs may have taken the rightful ruler of Toontown, but trust me, Flippy has been searching for Slappy ever since.

    Announcing ToonFest at OMG!Con 2016

    Announcing ToonFest at OMG!Con 2016

    Posted by The TTR Team on January 23, 2016 09:00 AM

     

    Last year, Toontown Rewritten hosted the first official real-world ToonFest event since 2007. You've seen the videos, you've heard the excitement, and you've BEGGED us to know if it's happening again.

    Today, we are extremely excited to announce that ToonFest will be returning once more to OMG!Con 2016 in Owensboro, Kentucky!


    Last year, Toontown's ToonFest celebration involved two panels led by the Toontown Rewritten team themselves that debuted exclusive content such as our first advertisement, the announcement of Storm Sellbot, and sneak peeks at what's to come! We also held plenty of activities such as a real-life pie toss, gameplay sessions, and meet-and-greets.

    This year, we're going to be expanding that even more with all sorts of new things to keep you Toons entertained. We are working closely with the OMG!Con staff to provide an experience out of this world for all of our players who are able to attend! If you thought last year was fun -- that was just a practice run compared to what we have in store.

    As time goes on, we will be posting updates to our blog to announce the exact activities that will be taking place. In the meantime, here is the basic information you need to begin planning your trip!

    OMG!Con is a big place, but tickets and hotels sell out quick. Click here to visit their website, and visit the "Registration" page to order tickets. You'll also save $5 on tickets for ordering before March 15th!

    As a member of the Tooniverse, you can get tickets (including group badges) for a discount!

    • Toontown Rewritten will be a main exhibitor at OMG!Con 2016, which lasts from June 10th to June 12th. (Friday to Sunday)
    • Each day will be packed with Toontastic activities, however Saturday is the day of our main event!
    • This event is a real-world celebration for Toontown's 13th anniversary. ToonFest 2016, the annual in-game celebration of Toontown Rewritten held in Acorn Acres, will still be hosted on September 19, 2016.
    • The event will be recorded and uploaded for those who are unable to attend -- but you really won't want to miss it if you are able to be there in person!
    • Toontown Rewritten receives no profits or revenue from this event -- we're just in it for the celebration of all things Toontown! All convention costs are being paid out of pocket by our loyal staff members.
    • OMG!Con is a big convention full of all sorts of things to do outside of Toontown Rewritten - you may come for us, but you'll want to stay for the day full of fun!


    We know that a lot of you were hoping that ToonFest would move to a closer location this year, but we spent a lot of time looking at locations and events until ultimately deciding that OMG!Con was the one that could offer the best experience for our players. Don't lose hope, though -- as Toontown grows, so will our events!

    Last year, over two hundred fans showed up JUST for Toontown -- and because we have announced the convention so early this year, we're expecting that number to increase greatly! OMG!Con brings in an estimate of 2,500 attendees.

    So what are you waiting for? Come by and join the fun! There's plenty to do, and we're just as excited as all of you. Stay TOONed on our blog for more information as it becomes available, and we hope to see you at ToonFest!

    How to Stay S.A.F.E.

    How to Stay S.A.F.E.!

    Posted by Flapjack on January 13, 2016 10:00 AM

     

    Hi there, Toontown. Flapjack! - that's my name. I've been a Toon Trooper for a little while now, but aside from my small appearances you may not have seen me before. That's because I work behind the scenes on one of the most important jobs: Keeping Toontown secure and S.A.F.E.!

    16-1-13_youcanneverbetoosafe.jpg

    Don't lose me yet, folks. This post may not be the most exciting to you, but it's an important one. Besides, security is a feature in itself - we spend just as much time working on security as we do working on new things for you to enjoy, and that's one of the reasons Toontown Rewritten is where it is today!

    When you're S.A.F.E., it makes Toontown a better place for you and for everyone. Let me tell you a little bit about what being S.A.F.E. is all about:

    • Secure:

      Passwords are meant to be kept secret for a reason - and it's never a good idea to share them. Even us staff members will NEVER ask for your password! In addition to keeping it secret, make sure your password is strong, and that you don't use the same password for multiple websites.
    • Aware:

      Be aware of suspicious websites and files. If someone says you can get 100 Laff points by entering your username into a program, let me give you a hint: You can't. They're just trying to steal your account!
    • Friendly:

      No one wants to be mean, but it's not mean to say "No" -- even to a friend. If someone is asking you to share accounts, or even to BUY accounts, that's just asking for trouble! YOU are what makes your Toon you!
    • Enabled:

      If you want to go the extra mile to keep your account secure, consider enabling Toontown's Two-Step Login on the account page. Every Toontown account comes with ToonGuard enabled, which can be turned off after a certain amount of time, but it's there to keep you, well, S.A.F.E.!


    That may seem like an awful lot to keep track of, but all of those extra measures can be applied in almost No time!

    It may seem hard to remember multiple strong passwords, but that's no problem at all due to the "Forgot" button that most websites have to reset it! It's as easy as that commercial with the Easy button, but Sir Max says I can't mention that because of copyright. Oh...

    Now, was that so boring to read? I don't think so. Security is one of the features that makes sure Toontown can keep on going, and that's why we here on the Toon Council strive to be the best at it!

    See you around, fellas. I'll be behind the scenes.
