We are alive
By someone on May. 21st, 2012 6:43PM
Hello everyone (this is Jason). Here's that news post that everyone has been asking about.
First off, we've added Pogostick Man. All of you know this. As you might guess, he rides a pogo stick. Thanks to Nova
for providing vocals. Now when he plays Happy Wheels, he can scream with
himself. And the internet becomes a bit less lonely of a place. Some of you have asked about having other YouTube gamers record vocals. We're not really planning on doing that. A male voice was needed and Nova, who happens to have a fairly unique voice, mentioned interest. We'll most likely go and record a bunch of new voices soon. The next character vocals are most likely female.
Pressing up/down moves Pogostick Man forward/backward with small jumps. Holding space bar results in a big jump. Pressing shift makes him stand upright on the pogo stick and control makes him crouch. Some of his joints are stronger than other characters which allow him to land big jumps without breaking to pieces. Once ejected, his joints are normal strength.
The response to Pogostick Man has been pretty incredible, but this of course has resulted in a trend of unoriginal wall-jumping levels which has polluted the level browser. Please make original levels.
Second, we have exceeded ONE MILLION Facebook 'likes'. Hitting this mark was never expected. In fact, we originally were hoping for 5000 (Jim: "we did?"). And of course we talked about doing something for this event, but then planned poorly and missed it. So the surprise is that there was no surprise. We will eventually post some awesome pictures of the socks that Jim bought. Or we won't. We know you love the suspense. Thanks to everyone who clicked 'like'.
Third, the development of the forums is on hold. We estimated it would be done by now, but then something came up.
Forth, things are a bit slow right now because Jim is incarcerated in Thailand, but I assure you we're always working on something and there are a lot of things to come.

Hey guys Jim said on FB that there will be a fancy level editor update then he now starts on a new character :)
By hydro broseidon on Jun. 15th, 2012 02:53AM
Can you make a skateboarder, snowboarder, or a BMX rider plz?
By Bert on Jun. 15th, 2012 03:52AM
Jim is adding a helpful, fancy update to the level editor instead of adding characters?
HERE COME THE NOOBS BITCHING ON WHY HE ISN'T ADDING PEWDIEPIE!
By Dannepower on Jun. 15th, 2012 04:57AM
Can you make a character whitout a vechile? It gonna be awesome of you do it!
By iTz ChRiS on Jun. 15th, 2012 05:06AM
I have been playing Happy Wheels since a little over a year now, that is all.
By nutty48 on Jun. 15th, 2012 06:21AM
I know no one will care, but I'm posting this anyway. A guy on a scooter would be cool. Maybe a prison inmate, I don't know. Just sayin'.
By S P A R T A on Jun. 15th, 2012 06:22AM
Dannepower, it's called Happy [b]WHEELS. Wheels. sleehW. Weels.[/b] Got it?
By nutty48 on Jun. 15th, 2012 06:23AM
OH! Nevermind, acapops already had the scooter idea. I still think a prison inmate would be a good character riding it though.
By Bert on Jun. 15th, 2012 07:08AM
You're right nutty48, nobody cares.
Oh and look how he quoted that acapops loser from the first page, just shows he doesn't realise there's more pages.

I think that they should have the little kid in a go-cart as the next new character. I think someone made a level for the go-cart kid and it should be used. Also they should allow level importing again. If you don't want someone to be able to import your levels [b][i]DO NOT CHECK "IMPORTABLE BY OTHERS"[/i][/b]. It should be fixed immediately.
By ACHIEVERjunior on Jun. 15th, 2012 3:34PM
Your idea sucks, and your other one does too!

Midnight Gummybear check your messages. Midnight Gummybear? What kind of name is that?
By ACHIEVERjunior on Jun. 15th, 2012 4:26PM
Better name than LWPeterson
By LWPeterson on Jun. 15th, 2012 6:25PM
Better name than ACHIEVERjunior.
By xXxGoldenfangxXx on Jun. 15th, 2012 7:56PM
There should be a character voiced by Pewdiepie. I want to see that, and I dont care who the character is. But it should be something related to him
By LWPeterson on Jun. 15th, 2012 9:35PM
Please view the news post.
By cooldood4567 on Jun. 15th, 2012 9:51PM
Make a character voiced by pewdiepie!
By Bert on Jun. 15th, 2012 10:12PM
Damn, I'd so love to be a moderator, people like me and some others can be trusted, I just can't take this crap any more. I would love to be able to remove and tell these dumbassess off for asking for a new character, or mentioning anything about pewdiepie (doesn't deserve capitals).
And also to remove horrid levels, I could remove thousands of levels a day as they all beg you to rate 5. And also remove shitty pewdiepie levels.
Midnight Gummybear is a dumbass... 'Fans' don't beg for shit, fans enjoy what they get. Meaning me, and a few others are classified as 'fans'. Ain't that amazing? Happy Wheels only has a few fans!
By Merlin the Wizard on Jun. 15th, 2012 10:56PM
Yeah. I'm not trying to force Jim to do something, but he should set up rules that pop-up as soon as you open the editor. Also, when you click on the box to type in the news comments, something should pop-up with rules saying, "Wait! Read this first:" etc. Yes I'm being a hypocrite, I'm asking Jim to do something, but it might actually help TJF. Yes, he will certainly never read this, but I might as well try. I mean, there are hundreds of thousands of noobs that play, and only a handful of people who are smart enough to not beg for stuff using levels and comments. And if noobs want something, download the program Jim uses and make it yourself. Noobs don't understand that it takes actual WORK to make stuff. And when Jim says he won't make something, don't beg him. I've heard enough of stupid pewwOIDIEEpeIE, and if you noobs think that asking OVER AND OVER will force Jim to make what you want, you're wrong. He'll get annoyed and maybe start banning people. If he hasn't made it yet, just stop asking, because he won't make it. I'm probably not making a lot of sense now, which is what happens when I start ranting about noobs and people who beg Jim for stuff. Just please, stop asking Jim, it's getting annoying.

By stupidkarma1709 on Jun. 16th, 2012 05:18AM
vOCALS: I THNK THE VOCALS OF EXPLORER GUY , EFFECTIVE SHOPPER AND LOAN MOWER MAN DONT FIT IN .FOR EXPLORER GUY I THINK HES TOO OLD LOOKING TO HAVE THAT VOICE, THE FAT LADYS VOCALS ARNT TOO GREAT BECUASE MOPED GIRL SUITS THEM BETTER AND BECUASE THEY SHARE ITS JUST BAD SOMHOW. THE LOAN MOWER GUYS VOCALS ARE KIND OF RACIST BECUASE WHEN THERES SOME ONE WITH DARKER SKIN INVOLVED EVRY1 THNKS OF THEM AS GHETTO AND STREET LIKE. SRRY IF U THNK THIS IS OFFENSIVE BECUASE ITS REALLY NOT SUPPOST TO B...SRRY 4 SPELLING MISTAKES... OH AND HI!
By maxykong on Jun. 16th, 2012 05:54AM
francis should do vocals
for a fat nerdy guy who rides a chair
By Bert on Jun. 16th, 2012 06:05AM
You don't make ANY sense AT ALL!
First off, Explore Guy is the only character to not have a custom voice, he shares it with Segway Guy, Effective Shopper and the women in Moped Couple have seperate voices.
Voices can't be racist, they can be stereotypical, not racist. His voice does sound like a black-skinned guy, and since when does riding a mower make you ghetto and street-like? Fool.
@Merlin the Wizard, your profile say you're S P A R T A, Y U MAKE NEW ACCOUNT? Anyway, good suggestion.
See, there's two ways to ask Jim for something to be made, there's BEGGIN AND SKREMIN LYK DIS 4 POODIPIE CARIKTER, or, there's suggesting, like you did.
I like to make suggestions, suggestions that are unique and not ranting, a pop-up message system would be great! But, knowing noobs, they'd ignore it and not even read it.
You can easily see this with the rate 5 begging, Jim implemented a system to warn you about it, yet noobs are completely oblivious and ignore it, continuing on with their begging.
By LWPeterson on Jun. 16th, 2012 09:19AM
Please go to the happy wheels facebook.[url]http://facebook.com/happy.wheels[/url]
[b][i][u]Jim says he is going to make a fancy new update next week and he is working on a new character so STOP ASKING JIM TO DO STUFF!!![/u][/i][/b]
By Bert on Jun. 16th, 2012 11:16AM
Thing is though, noobs don't want a great update that Jim is going to give us, instead they want poodeyighepeyighe.
By MYMOM234 on Jun. 16th, 2012 11:53AM
All these noobs... we need more moderators and the forums back. And we need them soon. very soon.
I am working on a new project, it is called PIKMIN HD. It will be my best level yet, and it WILL get featured. Wait awhile for me to finish, or find me on Xat to test it.
By ACHIEVERjunior on Jun. 16th, 2012 12:22PM
@MYMOM I asked Jason on twitter if I could become a news post and/or forums moderator, because I can't play happy wheels and I'll be on the forums 24/7
By hockeyboy3 on Jun. 16th, 2012 12:34PM
Make it mobile!
By Luigi Is pro on Jun. 16th, 2012 12:45PM
I tried to be a moderator, but since many of them are inactive. I think Jason would like to recall on our conversation we had 4 months ago. "
well, luigi, all i can say at this point is that you're not on my shit list, which is a good thing. i'll keep you in mind the next time jim and i talk moderators, but don't take it personally if it doesn't work out.
thanks for your interest, man.
Jason, if your reading this or not (then I will send you a message in the future) we just got a crisis of too many people trying to create chaos and the levels in Happy Wheels as well that are just too spammed out or the classic boring stuff that no one likes (Eg: Heart donation, rope swing, bottle/Tv runs/ Arrow run and other pointless levels that nobody wants to see)
By zombielicker321 on Jun. 16th, 2012 2:34PM
JIM SHOULD MAKE A PEWDIEPIE CHARACTER
By ACHIEVERjunior on Jun. 16th, 2012 3:17PM
You should shut the fuck up, stop bossing him about like he's a whore and stop being entertained by a swedish gay cat raper called felix...FELIX
By LWPeterson on Jun. 16th, 2012 3:41PM
zombieliker321 check your messages. Also when the new forums come back there should be something in the suggestions part that detects a character idea or asking PewDiePie to do a voice for a character.
By mmm1313 on Jun. 16th, 2012 7:52PM
Hey Jim i have been a HW fan forever i am wondering why you have not made a scooter man that sounds good it could be a girl on like a pink scooter with a basket
