These past weeks there has been a lot of talk over Club Penguin item adders. If you don't know what item adders are, they are programs that can give you almost any Club Penguin item you want. Simply with your penguin name, password, and the ID of the item, you can get the ultra rare beta hat, old items from 2005, and virtually whatever you please. Now before you get too excited about these magical programs, the real question is: should you be using them?
According to Club Penguin rules... you cannot use item adders. They go against Club Penguin's "no cheating" policy, as item adders are third party programs which violate these terms. Once these rules are broken, you might face the risk of being banned.
Now you might be wondering, "well my friends are using them with no issues, the only thing they're worried about is stacking up all the rare items!" The only reason why people using Club Penguin item adders are not getting banned is because the programs are ahead of the Club Penguin team... but that won't last for long. There was a hole in the Club Penguin system, and someone managed to find this glitch and create these programs. But Club Penguin will find out a few days later. And in this case, they already have! Take a look at what Spike Hike tweeted:
We know about the Item Adders and are fixing. Hacking and using 3rd party programs is against the CP rules. #KeepCPSafe

Yup, sorry guys but the Club Penguin team is already on it. And some players who the used item adders are now finding their penguins banned! Club Penguin can easily see when you got an item, so if you got the Beta Hat last week, but it was released way back in 2005, you can get banned easily (plus they got more smart technology to find cheaters!). So in conclusion, you shouldn't risk using item adders, stamp adders, beta hat adders, or other programs like them. You might get lucky, but Club Penguin will catch up to you, just like they're doing now.
