Polo Field Leaves Club Penguin

Whether he was laid off or left on his own terms, Polo Field, Club Penguin’s social media manager, is no longer an employee. Polo Field is a longtime employee of Club Penguin: he’s worked there even before Disney bought the game, joining the team back in late 2006.

The announcement of his leaving was made in a blog post by Megg.

Hey Penguins!

I’ve got a special message from Polo Field to all of you in the community:

Hello Penguins!

Hope everyone loves the Maze puzzle. The team have so many more amazing surprises planned for you this year.

Just wanted to let you know that after 8 incredible years at Club Penguin, I’m going to be moving on.

I’ve been so lucky to be a part of the Club Penguin Team, serving you guys every day. Thank you for being the most amazing, positive, and friendly community. Thanks for all the beautiful artwork, and encouraging words you’ve sent over all the years.

Don’t forget YOU make Club Penguin the special place it is! Keep working together to make CP even better.

Until then… Waddle on!

-Chris (aka Polo Field)

I was hoping I could ask you all a huge favor and join me in wishing Polo all the best in his future experiences. Leave your special message for Polo Field in the comments below!

Waddle on,

-Club Penguin Team

Dang. Thanks for the fun over the years Polo, from your beginnings at Club Penguin in 2006 to you joining in the Club Penguin community with MCCP back in July 2007 and then to your official blogging career with Club Penguin in 2012.

  1. Was he laid off? There was no reason why he left! Businesmoose and Billybob had their reasons. Their reasons was to pursue future projects. Polo? No reason. Its a mystery. We need Sherlock Holmes right now.

    • It’s not stated whether or not he was laid off, however based on the recent events I think we can infer/assume that yes he was laid off.

      • I don’t think someone like Polo would be laid off. He is one of the top 5 mods in CP history. I’d think if CP were laying off employees it would be the smaller ones that no one really knows about or cares about. Not someone as big as Polo.. But it’s possible.

        • well he doesn’t post as much as the others do on the blog and I’m sure he doesn’t work in some other section other so he was kind of taking of money :/ but then again maybe spike doesn’t want someone to have more fans then him so he got rid of him

  2. WHO IS VITAL VIPER?! I always see people mention him but don’t know who he is. Is he a former mod or former cp blogger or something?

  3. Also, kind of unrelated, but when is the next Ask trainman? And you you plan to interact with your readers more often with posts like giveaways and ask trainman, trainman in real life, etc?

    • Maybe sometime this summer. I like to interact with readers when I can, however I don’t have many real-life things I can write about.

  4. Hey train, have you thought about changing your comments from WordPress to Disqus? I don’t know if it would alter the entire site, since this site is from WordPress isn’t it, or is it your old one? Anyways, I just personally think that Disqus comments are easier to navigate and customize with. If you have no idea what Disqus is, look it up.

    • I’m familiar with Disqus, and yes I use WordPress. I’ll consider it, although I do think the commenting system I currently have is totally fine – unless others disagree, of course.

      • I do as well, but like I’m having a hard time figuring out how to change my profile picture for these comments, I clicked my icon and I made an account to change my photo, but the site lags, and I have a good computer. Also, its easier to see your comments and you get notified when someone responds to you or up-votes your comments, whereas on here you might forget which article/post you left a comment on and you may never see a reply someone made to it. It’s your site..

        (I’m PieEater234, I was just using that random name to test something)

        • You join Gravatar, set an avatar, then whatever email you used to join Gravatar is the email you put when leaving a comment. Then the picture auto-shows here on WordPress. I do think there’s an option to be emailed when people reply to your comments on here, no? (or maybe it’s all comments)

        • Monchocho used the same tool and personally I like this but I would think it would be better if ur titles had something to tell u how many comments there are so that u can see if someone replied and not guess :) (more then now)

  5. Club Penguin (2005-2008): Small Number of employees
    Club Penguin (2009-2013): Large Number of employees
    Club Penguin (2014 -present): Small Number of employees

  6. He had to have been laid off. Polo Field used to come to the CP Wikia chat all the time and when people asked him if he was ever going to leave, he always said no and that he would be around for a long time.

    • How are you sure it wasn’t a fake Polo Field? And even if it was him, how long ago was it? A long time doesn’t necessarily mean like 8 more years…

    • We know for a fact it was him. We had staff track his IP and it was the same IP he uses from the CP office. He also said on Twitter that it was him. :P He didn’t say it THAT long ago. He came on many times so I can’t necessarily remember when, but he said it within the last few months.

  7. It just got real. I really hope that with all these people leaving CP we can cut down on apps and tv shows so the smaller team can focus solely on parties like 2005-2008

  8. why is everyone acting like its the end of the world? I never really got excited about him besides with all the people leaving isn’t this kind of normal? besides its not they said “AND U CAN NEVER GO ON YOUR ACCOUNT EVER AGAIN!” so he could come up to make all of you happy :/

  9. hm that’s interesting. first it was billybob and happy77 then it was polo and moose then after megg took moose’s spot it was megg and polo so I wonder who will take polo’s spot now hmm ;) megg and ???? the two most popular CP bloggers of 2015 (I don’t think it would be daffo or chatta sense they mostly throw themed parties and show fan art or ninja sense he basically doesn’t do anything even though he was supposed to so it might be someone totally new! :) we just don’t know) :)
