Nicktropolis is a game on Nick.com where users with a NickName (username) and password may safely chat to their friends by using either pre-written messages or the Nick Safe Chat dictionary, which blocks out offensive language. Users can also chat with chatterbots posing as Nicktoons such as SpongeBob SquarePants, Danny Phantom, Jimmy Neutron, Aang and Manny Rivera. Users may buy items in Nicktropolis "stores" with NickPoints, which is the Nicktropolis currency. In August 2006 there was a long closing of Nicktropolis.
Nick.com began construction on Nicktropolis in February 2006, and it went Alpha, or Pre-Beta, on March 14. At that time, Nicktropolis' population was limited to about 500, thus Nicktropolis was fairly quiet. However, Nicktropolis was open to non-users at the time.
Nicktropolis goes Beta
On June 18, 2006, Nicktropolis was closed for a short time to begin its beta phase. Also, Nicktropolis was closed to non-users, and only open to users with NickNames. All went smoothly in Nicktropolis until somewhat of a Nicktropolis tragedy, which was August 18, 2006 at 5:00 PM.
From 5:00 PM on August 18 to 10:30 AM on January 6, Nicktropolis was in its tragic closing. Many NickNames hosted electronic "riots" against Nicktropolis creators. They are under fire until finally opening Nicktropolis to the beta testers on January 6 at 10:30 AM.
After almost 5 months of being closed, Nicktropolis was finally opened to the original testers. It was fairly quiet, because the only way into Nicktropolis was Wikipedia, which many NickNames have never heard of.
The official public opening
On March 6, Nicktropolis was finally opened to the public and linked to Nick.com so NickNames could get to it.
As of May 17, the Nicktropolis population was 3,231,125, which makes it bigger than Manhattan by population. Nicktropolis' homepage was redone on May 11 to match Nick.com's new look. All of the angry message board posts have been deleted since the opening, and there are few reports of anger. Nicktropolis has new safety features from reporting safety concerns to accepting ground rules. Nicktropolis is now considered somewhat of a "safe RuneScape for kids."
