The Chosen One

Clockwork has done so many things to the GoodBlox foundation. He’s made us a fake version of Finobe. He broke some of our clothing. He slayed folks with the legendary Teapot Turret. What’s worse is that he hijacked Jiquor’s account to use his powers for evil instead of for good. During his rampage, he didn’t just change small things onsite, but he uploaded very creepy assets that would look as if they’d belong in a horror game. What are the chances those assets actually exist? Just today, it seems that he had changed GoodBlox back to normal.

…Or so we thought.

It seems that everything is of relation to clockwork on the GoodBlox website. The banner, the logo, and many of the buttons have been changed AGAIN. Some messages say things like this: CLOCKWORK is Free! How eerie is that?!

One GoodBlox User, regen, somehow managed to get their hands on The Nethack Man Pages. They solved some sort of puzzle that had led to them obtaining the book, and now they are deemed the chosen one to save us all from total catastrophe. Just today at the Parade, he and other users had completed a very strange obstacle course with moving Teapots, climbing structures, and even rolling spheres! Regen, the fate of GoodBlox rests in your hands. This is a different kind of war now.

However, I have found a secret backdoor that allows me to get back into my account. However, I won’t use it until clockwork pays more attention to the parade instead of the website. If I can just flip a switch in my profile that allows me to regain control while keeping intruders like clockwork out, I will be able to help restore the website to former glory. I discovered something last night as well.

UPDATE: Clockwork paid attention to the parade, and I got back in like I hoped I would. I would also like to thank Regen, because I wouldn’t have been able to completely prevent this corrupted version of clockwork from accessing my account again if it weren’t for him completing the obstacle course. With this, I was able to revert my profile and the catalog back to normal, but for some odd reason, I was not able to remove these items. Oh well, I guess we’ll just turn them into Jiquor’s special assets – which are the first two GoodBlox Administrator’s special items evar.

The parade is open now, but I warn those who are joining that clockwork might seek vengeance within the first few hours of the parade being live. I’ve also gotten word that a new rock is on the way, but of relation to what? Zangoose and letic86 are working on the item in the background. I’m sure we’ll find out what it is in the future.

Let’s fight for the greater good, people.

A Different Kind of War

[9:02 PM]
This just in: Clockwork hijacked my account!!

In the background, I was secretly working on another Teapot Turret, designed to be much more powerful than Clockwork’s himself. With this Turret, I was planning to end this war entirely. But now, he managed to find out my secret plans to rid of him forever. Now, he’s hijacked my account.

He’s deleted my Teapots, changed the announcement, changed my profile, posted weird stuff on-site, and…OH MY GOSH, what could happen next?! He even has my administrative privileges…I fear for the future of the site with clockwork’s destructive behavior.

He had also created various ominous hats that were published by my account. They’re extremely eerie and I do not know what to do with them once I get my account back.

The only hope left to stop clockwork from his destructiveness is to defeat him with a book created by Telamon, as evident from Mt. GOODBLOX. Avenge me, everyone! Together, we will stop clockwork. But for now…lock your doors, hide your Teapots, and hide your levels, because he’s coming for you…

I cannot do anything to stop him any further. He’s managed to get through my barriers, and now he has my account…

Finobe – We’re Clockwork

A new blank white banner appeared on-site in the early hours of May 31st, 2020. I was going to delete it, but then the text said something about Telamon‘s “easy to read four point font with 1,200 page” book, titled The Nethack Man Pages, as discovered by some users across GoodBlox. With this, I decided to leave the announcement up to see where that would take the community. Some users even discovered a hidden secret.

The mountain was updated. Telamon’s book was updated. The banner changed, yet again. KJF’s avatar is not looking too healthy – what’s with all the lines on his avatar?!

Worst of all, it seems that Clockwork had done the unthinkable – but what I could only describe as “the worst that’s yet to come” in the general chat rooms on our Discord server.
It seems that we have become Finobe. Could Clockwork’s corruption be coming from there?

Like clockwork, only time will tell for what’s going to happen next. But this book could be our last hope to save GoodBloxia from total catastrophe…

Clockwork has returned…

…The rumors are true. Not only had he put the LOLCAT Bible on-sale, but he has occupied himself with the Teapot Turret.

[9:47 AM]May 29, 2020
CLOCKWORK.
IS.
BACK.

[1:24 PM]May 30, 2020
Clockwork says that people have made fun of his teapots.
I wonder what kind of vengeance he has against me the most compared to the rest of the community though? Is it because I stole his teapots? Does he think I’m going to break them?

The answer is a definite no. I’m just an ordinary guy who likes to collect Teapots, much like clockwork does. When I caught Clockwork visiting Mount GoodBlox yesterday, rumors spread around indicating that he had left some sort of note hidden in the level. I don’t know where it is though, so maybe if we work together, we can find it! He’s been a little inactive for the last few hours though, and he hasn’t been on yet today.

I wonder if he’s making the Teapot Turret even stronger. If this is the case, then it would be nearly impossible for me to stop him alone. I couldn’t even block the Teapot Turret from making its way to the catalog, and especially if it became a lot stronger, I would not be able to hold him back, especially by myself.

I wonder if the Lolcat Bible contains any secrets, too.

[9:36 PM]May 30, 2020
It seems that SyncMaster found the secret after many had spent hours upon hours of searching for his dastardly secret. A gray Teapot had been found in a delicate wall. SyncMaster can tell you more about what he found. I also got word from KJF that Clockwork joined Mt. GoodBlox and wreaked havoc on the mountain. Perhaps someone there caught him saying something or doing something unusual? Only time will tell…but this war isn’t over yet.

Wrath of the TEAPOT GOD: Part 2

Months ago, we attempted to stop his reign of terror with a special Teapot Jiquor had made back in 2016 during his time at ROBLOX.

Albeit the fact that it worked, there are rumors of him plotting his next vengeance. But now it seems that the return of this mysterious figure is not at all a friendly revisit, but has arrived to cause more vengeance across the horizon, where the sun rises to the north.

With new items appearing on the catalog, and since there’s been a discovery of the Teapot Turret, everyone is advised to shelter in their anti-Teapot shelter places and prepare for battle.

What are the odds that they will come to their senses and lead their people to the promised land? Only time could tell during this great war…

Spring Block Party Winners!

Some time ago, we had an event that was to celebrate Spring, parties, and fun. Today is Memorial Day in the United States of America, which marks the unofficial start of summer. All the entries can be seen over on the Discord server until the channel is removed.

But before we get to the good stuff…

Where’s My Prize?!?!?!
The prizes are still being delivered. Please don’t send a staff member messages asking about them for a little while. If you’re listed on this post, you’ll get one of the prizes.

Winners of the Parade Prize

Unfortunately, there weren’t that many submissions for this contest in the vehicles and rides sections, which is a first in a long time. Perhaps we should’ve extended the duration of the contest? Either way, we did run it for quite a while, so if you didn’t make it in, try again when we have our next competition! The top five outfit winners were chosen as well.
The Grand Prize winner for the Party Location will have their place hosted at for the parade, and they will also receive all the prizes.
Each winner will receive the Teddy Bear Hat.

The GoodBlox Spring Block Party Contest

**Please note that this is an old blog post that was failed to be published. From now on, all users regardless of Discord will be notified of when a contest occurs.

The spring Block Party will be happening from 5/9-5/20. Now for the important part:

Every person who enters a valid avatar image to the #spring channel will receive the Block Party hat. The players who are chosen (by the GOODBLOX Staff) will receive an award of GOODBUX in addition to the Block Party hat.

Voting will be opened up on the SPRING CONTEST category and the top voted entries in each Category will receive a People’s Choice hat in addition to the Block Party hat.

The best vehicle, amusement ride, location, and video will be chosen by the community, then the GOODBLOX Staff – winners will get a very cuddly hat! The best place will be chosen as the hosting place (if visiting Places is back up before 5/20) for our springtime parade.

What to Build
Here are our categories to help you get started:

Rides
There will be lots of fun rides at the GOODBLOX Block Party. Design a ferris wheel, rollercoaster, bouncy castle, waterslide, or other thrilling ride for party-goers!
Party Locations
Decorate your GOODBLOX place to get it ready for the party, or construct a new place specifically for hosting the event. Will you build an elegant Victorian manor house? Or a private semi-volcanic island?
Party Vehicles
Cruise on into the party in style! Party vans, party planes, party spacecrafts! We’ll have them all!
Springtime Outfits
Don’t feel like building something? You can still participate in the Block Party by dressing up your character! Dress up your GOODBLOXian for the party. There will be a door prize for the best dressed party-machine! Remember that you can build your category out of (almost) anything! I would start now.

That’s all for now.

The GoodBlox 1k Member Sale Spectacular!

Last week, we managed to hit a total of one thousand people that have registered accounts on our GoodBlox web site. Because of this, I promised that there will be a very special sale, which is going to run from the 8th of May to the 11th of May. In addition, there are some awesome give-aways happening on our Discord Server right now, so why not join us to participate in them? If you don’t have a Discord server, we will have more give-aways that will be hosted throughout the website and the rest of our social media pages (which we must also be more vigilant about for posting new content on them).

Although the 1k Member Sale Spectacular! has not started yet, there was a poll that ran for a few days so everyone who entered could share their opinions on what should come out during this special sale. If your pick didn’t make it, don’t worry! This is only a preview of SOME of the items we’re putting up for the special sale. However, that doesn’t mean your pick is guaranteed to be selected. Don’t complain to me about it.

Some items that are going back on-sale:


Remember: This is just a preview of some items coming back on. This doesn’t include everything we’ve got planned.

Items being sold at a discount:

New Items Being Released:


NOTE: The Hand Lotion is actually now going to be Bloxy Sanitizer, which helps promote clean hands during COVID-19. This item will be given out to Beta Testers (which was meant for the month of April, so there will be a second Beta-Tester item in May), then it will go on-sale thereafter. This means the Propeller will also be discontinued when this new item becomes available.

User-Made Assets Coming to GoodBlox:


These are items that users had made in the before time, long before user-created hats. They will become live GoodBlox assets!

Be sure to save up your currency. You can look at some of the ways in which you can earn currency by reading the following information below:

There are multiple ways to success on Goodblox. Here are a few tips from me on earning currency.

• Do something generous/helpful and be recognized for a reward.
• You can sell outfits for currency, which may be vital for earnings.
• You are boosting our Discord server, and that is always appreciated along with donations if you wish to. We always thank our supporters!
• You can also participate in our contests – every participant gets a special reward, whether they win or lose!
• We host giveaways. I host a big one only once a month unless otherwise advised.
• Promote your Place and have users join your Place.

Good luck!

GoodBlox: 1,000 Users

Last week, we reached an awesome milestone for our Revival: our 10,000th GoodBlox user account was registered by “Timothy”. I’ve seen him online occasionally, but we hope he participates in the community for a long while to come. We would love to be able to award our 1000th user some sort of prize, but we don’t have anything to give at the moment.


However, I honestly never would’ve expected to see a total of one thousand users in our growing community. I am amazed at how many of you had shown interest in our revival project, and we’re grateful for you all to be with us. I especially am grateful for our staff members who have come and gone over the years to help us keep this project strong and alive. We’ve been through some rough bumps, and we’ve still got a lot of work to do, but the most important thing is that we’re all here and we couldn’t have achieved this milestone without you. Salute!

Because of the fact that we’ve reached 1,000+ users on GoodBlox, I am pleased to announce that we’ll be having a special sale from May 8th to May 11th. Be sure to save up your currency, enter future giveaways, sell some shirts, and join our Discord server.

Maybe when the sale progresses on, our 1000th user will be fortunate enough to receive one of our most expensive sale items. But until then, look forward to this future sale which runs from May 8th to May 11th.
