Map Glitch: In the detention room, the world map is missing Australia, Indonesia, the Caribbean islands, the Mediterranean, Japan, Hudson Bay, Malaysia, Greenland, and Siberia. Also, the continents of South America and Africa are shaped differently and Antarctica is smaller.
Scuba Gear: You don't have to get the scuba gear to dive. You can customize it off of someone else, for example, in a common room.
Teleporting Artur Glitch: In the school basement, Artur can be seen at the heater. But when the lights are turned off, he is not there.
Not Gum Glitch: Popgum (bought from the Poptropica Store) isn't really gum, since you can chew it inside the school and Mrs. Godfrey won't give you a detention.
