Bot or Not?

Hello Penguins!

Club Penguin Island's Desktop release brought forward many great features, including the ability to play the game on another device. Sam has made a Blog Post on Island News Blog due to the recent event of boting on the island.

Hi everyone,
Let’s take a moment to talk about bots. There aren’t usually many on the island, but you might see them now and then.
Bots look like penguins but there’s one major difference—there’s no human controlling the account. Instead, they stand in one place and might say pre-made messages over and over. Lame.
The best way to deal with bots is to ignore them, so you’ll need to know which penguins are real and which aren’t. To help, I’ve created a little something called:

Bot or Not!?

Pop quiz, penguins—

1. A group of penguins who look the same are standing in one place. They might be repeating the same messages, or telling you to visit a website for things like coins, cheats, or free membership. Bot or Not?
Answer: BOT! The most important thing, is to ignore bots promising things that sound too good to be true. There aren’t cheats or free memberships on these websites, and visiting them can actually be harmful to the device you’re on. Stay safe and don’t visit websites recommended by other players.

2. A penguin is repeatedly saying “Party in my iggy!” Bot or Not?
Answer: (Probably) NOT! That’s likely a penguin planning an igloo party. Igloos are in-game so they’re safe to visit.

3. A well-dressed penguin who loves fashion offers to train you in the art of stealth. Bot or Not?
Answer: DOT! That’s no bot, that’s Dot—one of the island’s best designers. And, rumor has it, an elite spy!

The lesson here is to ignore bots, especially when they’re telling you to visit a website. Meanwhile, the team is working on others ways to deal with bots. If you’d like to help out, report any bots you see.
Thank you for keeping the island safe!
Waddle on! 

Thank you for the informative post, Sam! I'm sure many penguins will find it helpful. What are your thoughts on this? Let me know in the comments below.

Until next time, waddle on!
