Welcome to “Behind the Scenes”, the column where we look into the day-to-day life of members of the community. In this post, we will be looking at the life of Wynn, current Chief Executive Producer, and Top Ten Committee Head of Club Penguin Armies.
Wynn‘s current roles in the army community are in the Club Penguin Armies organization, where she currently holds the positions of Chief Executive Producer and Top Ten Committee Head. Wynn joined the army community back in March of 2020, enlisting in the Help Force. Seven months later she joined the staff ranks, she became leader-in-training in November 2021, then becoming leader the very next month. After two months under her leadership, the army hit first on the Top Ten Armies, and were finalists of March Madness in 2022.
On the 15th of October, 2022, Wynn retired from the Help Force army. A testament to her positive impact on the army over the past months, Wynn’s retirement event reached a total of 51 troops online. Soon after, she released her retirement post.
On the 29th of December, 2022, Wynn joined the Administrative team alongside Rowan Alden in an announcement made by Spotty. Wynn was already a familiar face in the Club Penguin Armies organization, having been known for her Top Ten and board meeting experiences in the community.
Club Penguin Armies sat down with Wynn to discuss her life outside of her current role as admin.
Who is Wynn when she’s not playing armies?
Pretty much the same. But when I’m not handling the league, I work and study on most days. Other than that, I try to make some time during the day to go out for a run. Sailing is one of my greatest passions, I also love hiking, but that doesn’t mean I don’t play games or read something as well. I don’t enjoy cooking, I hate pickled ginger. I’m a coffee lover and a cat person.
What’s an average day for a CPA Administrator?
I would say there is no average day. Some days are more calm than others, but the only common aspect would be uncertainty. Days tend to be full of surprises, whether it’s another army drama, an individual causing problems, a new war, new unprecedented situation. You can never assume anything and have to constantly observe what’s happening in the community but also remember to plan ahead. When we are not exercising our brains to solve the issues, we coordinate the work of all of our departments and support them if needed. Our departments’ heads are amazing though, so they rarely need our help. As admins, we work the closest with the Media Division and the Top Ten Committee, both of which require work every week. Other things that connect different days are often negative emotions. There might be a lot of stress, frustration, or even anger. But there are also great days, full of excitement and good vibes.
What are some of your fondest memories in the community?
I have tons of wonderful memories that I will never forget, it would be hard to choose. The community gave me a space to grow and I think that’s what I loved the most. The moments of realisation that I achieved something I wouldn’t even imagine a year prior, the moments of appreciation, and proofs of trust from people I looked up to are the moments I come back to most often.
Do you ever see yourself enlisting in an army again?
Depends on how one defines enlisting. I might become an advisor somewhere if I’m offered, but not anytime soon, and not right after retiring. Somebody could assume I share relevant, sensitive information if I join an army to advise too early. But if you are asking about becoming a troop or leading again then no, I don’t plan on doing either ever again.
From the interview, it seems like Wynn handles a lot for the CPA organization. She has stated that she still plans to keep an eye on the community in the future when she no longer holds onto the rank of Admin. The community is definitely curious to see the story of Wynn’s army career continue. Club Penguin Armies thanks her for her hard work and wishes her the best of luck!
