Some people call it 'ghost penguins'. And there were some wondering, "what is going on?" The most likely scenario is that the players probably logged off the server, but their penguin didn't - it remained in the same spot.
This happened on the server Sleet. When I logged on earlier today, Sleet was 5 bars and Blizzard was 1.
So, being me, I logged onto the more popular server, Sleet, only to find a cluster of penguins that aren't actually there. This was definitely musical statues taken to the extreme.
Let us now take a look at the rooms that were infested with this glitch.
These two penguins (orange and red) had been at the Lighthouse for 4 hours. I assume they were practising a huge gig for the Adventure Party coming tomorrow. In that case, it must be phenomenal.
The penguin on the left in the blue and yellow jumper had been dancing non stop for the past 4 hours, without taking a break. She obviously had a lot of energy. The penguin, or should I say 'ninja' on the right had been standing there for the past "few hours" (in the words of a penguin called RoyalSnare.) Perhaps its something that Sensei had told him to do, in order to be a 'true ninja'.
All football/soccer matches were postponed and re-scheduled, because a lot of penguins that weren't even there, were in the way of everything. I've heard of the term 'defence' many times, but this was spiralling out of control now. Talk about 'goal hanging'.
The Pizza Parlour was vulnerable to robberies since nobody was watching. Well, some people anyway. Most people there were living breathing penguins, but some there were mere shadows.
Outside the Parlour in the Plaza, it looked as though a penguin had finished his shift. Well, he finished 4 hours ago. He was still standing outside the Pizza Place 4 hours later.
After playing a game of football, and losing to a couple of people that weren't even there (yes, I am THAT bad at football on Club Penguin (not in real life though)), I decided to have a slice of pizza, since I was hungry. As usual, there was nobody to come and take my order (how typical), so I decided to go to the nearest table that had two waiters there, plus somebody at the table who looked like she was waiting to be taken as well.
But of course, the waiters had been standing in the same spot for 4 hours, so making orders weren't exactly upbeat. Maybe their job was getting to them. Maybe this is what the impact of long jobs do to penguins on Rewritten.
The penguin sitting directly opposite me didn't look too amused either, considering the fact she was waiting for a pizza for 4 hours.
Well, I guess that doesn't make it 'fast food' anymore.
*quietly tries not to laugh*
It appears they've fixed the bug now. The servers have reset and the penguins have been booted off. However be on the lookout for suspicious behaviour.
