I’ve changed my mind and decided to make this a sticky post after all. This excellent post by phurple has really got you all talking, so I think it should take precedence for today. I’ve also added my picture, to remind you all, that the Bin Mag stand outside Weevil Post has also been given a makeover. Now your Tycoon mags are displayed in style! Keep commenting weevils – you never know when your comment might make it into a post!
Back to you, phurple …
Hello Bin Weevils,
Recently Bin Weevils unveiled the new Weevil Post. It has had a massive makeover, and I am going to review the changes and give Bin Weevils the thumbs up, or thumbs down.
Also, I would like to tell you that this year is Bin Weevils 10th birthday, from being a cartoon short right through to the Virtual World. Also, next year (2014) will most probably be a year of continuous updates, as it would have been 4 years since the last breath-taking changes to the bin, including removing places and adding places. I wonder what they have up their sleeve?
1. The Outside
I think I know what’s upstairs at Weevil Post, the cafe because look at the logo! I think the upstairs will be like Club Fling and there could be games also a cafe or a Coffee Machine -Chip8967
The outside of the new Weevil Post looks a lot more realistic. With the quick sketches of bricks and the flowers and balloons, it feels a lot more friendly than the other interior (see below)
Also the outside of the Weevil Post now features a glimpse inside of the building as well as sliding doors, which must have taken ages to prepare! It now fits in with the new Mulch/DOSH collector outside, and looks more suited to the Bin with all the other updates happening. So, I give Bin Weevils the thumbs UP on this change.
2. The Interior
I think Bin Weevils must have spent a lot of time designing the interior for the new Weevil Post. I mean, it went from being totally basic, from a complex design, giving it a Tardis-like feel (for those who don’t know Doctor Who – it’s bigger on the inside than the outside suggests) With two floors (with the second looking like a cafe), I can be certain that this will be a hit in the bin.
Bin Weevils missed something out! In Bin Weevils Magazine#17 it said there will be music at the new Weevil Post.. but there isn’t! Maybe the top floor WON’T be a cafe and will be a disco? -beano150
I think, once the Scribbles 200th Edition Bunting has disappeared, and it is left alone, it will be a super hangout. There is also a Scribbles Trivia poster next to the Weevil Weekly stand, which could suggest some more updates to Weevil Post? Well, we all know an update is coming, and that is the second floor. And, because you all know I am quite curious, so I took a picture of behind the curtain, and made the photo really bright, 500 x the normal colouring. Then, flashing up on my screen, was a hangout like the one at Club Fling! Take a look for yourself:
Well, I hope we find out soon!
Or instead of tycoon only, you need to wear a certain hat to get in like the Halloween Party, you needed a witch hat to enter -Apatosaurus

I think that the new Weevil Post is way lots better that the previous unoccupied building. It brings more colour and is much more friendly, and I totally agree with the idea for the magazines. We need more pages in our magazines. For example, I need at least around as many pages as Weevil Weekly, because I just really enjoy writing, and I always come up with new ideas. You should also be able to search magazines, because for example, I want to find your magazines Phurple, or others too! Now, thinking off-topic, Flum’s Fountain should have some benches and games, as it is a bit empty, and I think it needs improving. Figg’s Cafe should be deleted if a cafe comes to Weevil Post – why do we need so many cafes?
Its what I’m thinking too Tum!
I really don’t want Figgs to go! -htcbintophow
Also new in the Weevil Post is a new Mulch Tastic layout, which looks quite cool! Don’t you think that format should be on all the Mulch Tastic booth’s. What’s your thoughts?
One of my last favourite features before I give a rating, is the new magazine stands! They look exactly like the stands in my local WHSmiths and Waterstones, which I think looks awesome! The only thing that now needs to be updated with the new, sleek look is the magazine viewing and issue viewing section. The blue section with Tink and Clott has been there ever since I joined, and before that as well. Otherwise, I don’t think it flows as well. This is what they look like now:
So overall, I give this new interior a thumbs UP! But, as every new update has, it also has it’s bad points.
3. The Bad Points (My Opinion – Weevily World appreciates yours in the comments section!)
I think the Whats New LED screen needs some working on, as most of the time is black and the red writing goes too fast for me to read it. I think it could include something like the latest post on the blog on there, like Breaking News: Weevil Post has finally been updated! I don’t know, if it was rectified I think I would use it, but we all have a Whats New widget on the toolbar anyway, so why do we need another link?
I think the double doors leading outside could also have some work, I think they could have a view leading outside or something like that, not a reflection that isn’t really a reflection as you don’t see yourself or other weevils. But also again, this is just a little point I picked out.My final point is the seating area. I think it could do with some games to keep you occupied, like Club Flings hangout. But, as we don’t know what the upstairs is, it could go well with this seating area, you don’t know. Especially as they have a trampoline, it might have something to do with upstairs as well?!
Me and Tum103 have just noticed something! When we zoomed our computers in to the two other cracks, we noticed that above the exit crack there is red tables and chairs, and in the other a wodden kitchen utensil, on the wall! Maybe there could be a cafe there after all, with some games? If so, I would be there the whole day!
Also, rumor has it that it is being unveiled today! Stay tuned to Weevily World throughout the day, to see some new updates on Weevil Post!
Beano has just recieved an email from Bin Weevils, and it said this:
I emailed Bin Weevils asking what the top floor at Weevil Post is, and they actually told me – for the first time ever they weren’t secretive!
They said it will be a new cafe!
Thanks beano for telling us this information!
Well maybe they will put figgs into the weevil post like tums was in the shopping mall in the old bin then when figgs is in the weevil post then bw will put the bank of dosh where figgs was and figgs will be upstairs in the weevil post -yar
Weevily World really appreciates your views, and if your lucky, some of your thoughts, could end up on this page! Stay tuned for more information on Weevil Post as we get it, but remember in the meantime:
