As you may recall, in the middle of August I had you ask me whatever you want. It took some time, but I have now finished typing up the answers to everything I was asked. Without further ado, I present to you the completed response to every question. If you want to quickly look for yours, on a Windows computer hit Ctrl & F and type your name to find it on the page, or if you’re on a Mac hit ⌘ (command) & F.
Bloxxerman asked: What about giving us a glimpse of your room? Or garden? ;-) Just hiding any street names or anything like that!
Trainman1405: Alright, well I know you’re British so garden means backyard to you, but to Americans like me it’s just a patch where you grow food, flowers, etc. But here’s everything. :P I apologise for the messy room (it’s usually clean!) and the low quality pictures. (hopefully one day Apple improves the built in camera…)
Walking into my bedroom:
Full view of my bed area and bookshelves:
Other side of my room (laying in bed, this is what I see)
This is our garden – where tomatoes and peppers or something like that are growing. It was raining so I just went up to the window for the picture, hence my reflection.
As for my full backyard, (the whole British garden) our property line ends where the grass is taller than the rest – after that, someone else owns that land. Again, sorry about my full body reflection. :p
Here’s a much nicer picture of the backyard area, back when I used Instagram and it was snowing I took this picture.
Toogood asked: What do you like about Club Penguin?
Trainman1405: I just overall find the game very fun, aside from all the annoying game bugs that keep popping up. The graphics are fun, they update constantly, and the ideas are original.
Toogood asked: Who is your best friend on twitter?
Trainman1405: That’s a hard one, I talk to too many people on Twitter. Everyone? :P

Toogood asked: Who inspired you to blog?
Trainman1405: The penguin that is currently penguin of the week, Dale Jr Is 1, is who inspired me to make my first Club Penguin Website – him and 8stoplight8 along with Bo13245. (neither of these people play) Tech163 and Loki Terry inspired me to switch to WordPress.

Firedino123 asked: What is your fave month of the year? Also what is your fave season?

Deanz101 asked: Hey, Trainman1405. I’m just wondering, how did you get so good at everything you do whether it’s blogging or finding new exclusives for us?
Trainman1405: I’ve been slightly helped along the way, but a lot of it is just hours of practice, dedication, sleuthing, and trying out new things. I often think outside of the box.
Cooldude229 asked: How much do you play Club Penguin in a week?

Ninjaoninja2 asked: What Inspired you to keep going with your blog did you finnally say yep this is the one for me?

Trainman1405: I’d love to see The Party Starts Now and Anchors Aweigh in Dance Contest. It’d also be nice to view what stamps you can unlock for a game inside of that game instead of having to exit the game and view your stamp book. I haven’t got any game or party ideas.
Phineas99 asked: Have you met Happy77, or Billybob or other mods in Club Penguin before?
Trainman1405: I’ve seen Happy77 online, I don’t think Billybob, I’ve met Rsnail and Screenhog (Rsnail added me – although both him and Screenhog no longer work for Club Penguin) and I’ve also met Polo Field, Cool Times, and Businesmoose on several occasions.
