New Clothes, Garbage Collector Winners, July Journalism, and Comic Winners

Greetings everyone! As you can see from the title, a lot of new things have happened. To start with, the clothing catalog in the Shop has been updated with a bunch of new clothing, accessories and hair. To check out the items and their prices, you can refer to the graphic I made below:

I really love these new items. The ice-cream backpack is perfect for July since it's Summer, and the C Hat is also a nice addition. Always wear a hat to protect your head when you're outside in the sun! Overall, these new items do not disappoint. I'm very happy with these items and many other players are excited over them as well.

Besides the new clothes, we also have the results from the Garbage Collector contest. This contest was three days long and the players who participated worked extremely hard to get their names to the top of the leader-board. In the end, only the top three will receive prizes! The winners are: 

In First Place, we have Elthomii. He received a 1st place medal, 7 days of Citizenship and 10,000 bugs. In Second Place is Illusiion. He received a 2nd place medal, 5 days of Citizenship and 7,000 bugs. And in Third Place, we have Commando. He received a 3rd place medal, 3 days of Citizenship and 5,000 bugs. Congratulations to all of the winners! If you didn't win this time, there will always be more contests. Just keep trying and never give up! 

Since we are now almost two weeks into July, the Chobots Team is looking for new Journalists! The Journalism program is a lot of fun. Not only does your blog get to be featured on the Main Blog, but you also get many exclusive benefits. 

Here are the credentials your blog should meet: 
  • Your blog should be updated several times a week with fun posts, updates and of course, your own unique posts! 
  • You need to write your own posts. You can't copy them from the main blog or another person's blog. After all, it is your blog!
  • Your blog should be decorated with fancy buttons, font, header, etc. It's important to make your blog appealing to everyone. 
  • Your blog needs to be at least one month old.
If you think your blog is ready for Journalism, you can submit it by commenting the link here! If you become a Journalist, here are the amazing benefits you will receive for the month:
  • Your blog will be on the Main Blog blog roll as well as at the top of the log-in page.
  • You will get a fancy Journalist badge on the bottom right of your player-card that gives the address for your blog!
  • You will get a purple name-tag.
  • You can send private messages to all staff members, even if their player-card is blocked from everyone else.
  • You will receive a feather hand-item for your Chobot and one week of Citizenship for free!
  • You will get the opportunity to write one post to be featured on the main blog. 
As you can see, there are many fantastic benefits with Journalism! You have until July 19th to get your blog ready and submit it. Make sure to comment the link on this blog post so the Chobots team can review your blog and see if you are ready for Journalism. 

If you were a Journalist in June, you have to re-submit your blog for review as well. 

Make sure to stay positive! Even if you do not receive Journalism, just keep trying and working on your blog. It takes hard work and dedication to become a Journalist!

As many of you are probably aware of, last week there was a fun Comic Contest. The objective of the contest was you were supposed to create a comic about how Gune was kidnapped from the Nichos. There were many wonderful entries, but as with all contests, there could only be three winners. The winners of this contest are:

Santos came in First Place, winning a Comic hand item for his Chobot, 10 days of Citizenship and 10,000 bugs!

Toasty Tim came in Second Place, winning a Comic hand item for his Chobot, 7 days of Citizenship and 7,000 bugs.

Fangirl9091 came in Third Place, winning a Comic hand item for her Chobot, 5 days of Citizenship and 5,000 bugs. 

Congratulations to all of the winners! Your comics were very entertaining to read and I can tell a lot of hard work and effort was put into each comic. If you didn't win this contest, just keep trying! There will be many more contests for you to participate in!

Have a wonderful weekend,
