What the future holds for Solero and the community as a whole

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

It is clear to me, and many of you, that things are a little.... quiet? I'm not necessarily talking about Solero, but our community in general, especially on the development side of things. 2017 was a big year for us to some degree, the closure of the Club Penguin game meant we saw a short uproar in activity and productivity, for some time people were showing a lot of interest in private servers again, and many ex-cp players were looking to make their own servers, I know this because shortly after Club Penguin closed, I was approached by around 50 individuals asking for help, which of course I offered! It was a breath of fresh air to me, going back to how things were just a few short years ago.

It has now been two years since the closure of Rile5.com, which I still miss, honestly, the nostalgia I'd get from visiting that site again would truly be insane. I am proud to have been involved in all this, however, it is a very big part of my life, a part I can't imagine I'll ever forget. My love for computer programming and hardware was born from the people in the CPPS community, I can't help but think how different things would have worked out for me had I not registered on the beloved R5 :)

Anyway things are slowing down again.


What does the future hold for Solero?

Solero is STAYING, this box isn't used solely for Solero, so it will stay for as long as my need for this server stays. The icerink archive stays until it gets taken down by ledisney. I will always be around, but I'm no longer actively writing code, helping people out or working for clubpenguin-related projects, mainly because there's no demand for help but also because I've grown out of this. Solero will also get maintained in my free time, so I don't get hacked. If you make a topic here I'll probably read it.

What does the future hold for the community?

The official death of flash has really marked the end of the road, with HUGE clients such as Chrome, Firefox and Edge thinking of throwing in the towel, things really don't look promising, the chances of flash becoming FOSS are slim, IMO. I don't think private servers will still be around for the 2020 exit of Adobe Flash, however, Club Penguin simply isn't an impressive game by today's standards, kids can get so much more out of other platforms.

If you have been a part of this community, thank you for helping make my childhood slightly more interesting 😁.

Good luck to you all, I wish you the best.
