September 19, 2020 / A New Line, and New Characters
Lost in the hoopla of Courtney's release was American Girl's tweet about a new product line featuring a contemporary Black character, as well other contemporary characters of color, to debut in late autumn 2021.
Because sometimes we just can't beat a dead horse enough times, this wiki is a no-speculation zone.
To celebrate the launch, American Girl has partnered with Girls Who Code. Through December 31, American Girl will match customer donations of $1, 5, or $ 10 to a maximum of $50,000 to support the organization, including outreach to children from historically underrepresented minority groups. They will also be providing a $5,000 scholarship to four Girls Who Code members to help further their education in computer science or a related field. A second book has been mentioned in press release but has not been titled or revealed yet. (Guess we really are doing it 80s style!)
But that's not all! Newly enrolled AG Rewards Members will earn three times the AG Rewards points on an order from American Girl through September 24, 2020. Through November 30, 2020, purchasers will receive a free limited edition poster of all the available Historical Characters and the most recent three Girls of the Year with any 18" doll purchase.
It's absolutely heinous to put up bad articles. So don't do it. Or I'll unplug the arcade cabinet and you'll lose your quarter.
A long standing policy has had to be outwardly stated because of people misbehaving: Admin and Templates.
Templates are backend coding used across the wiki for article layouts, notes at tops and bottoms, quick categories, and a myriad of other needs that make it so information can be put down with short code rather than a full typing of data every time. Editing a template edits it across every article it is on. This makes them highly sensitive and so they are tightly regulated by Admin and Content Moderators only.
So the policy is short and simple. Do not edit templates unless you are admin or content moderator. Typos and small mistakes are fine. Any other changes whatsoever are not in the realm to touch or anyone else's call to make. Deleting, editing, modifying, or otherwise messing with any template will result in an immediate one month ban, with subsequent violations escalating up to a permanent ban.
September 6th, 2020 / Official Information on the Upcoming Historical Character, Courtney
Source: First Book, Courtney Changes the Game, listed on Target Website. Accessed 8/6/2020.
Official news has come out about the upcoming newest Historical Character to be released: Courtney Moore. Courtney will be representing the 1980s, with her books starting in 1986. (In a way, AG has come full circle!) From the cover, we can tell she is white and appears to have an interest in video games. The website listing shows an early October release. No information other than her first book has been released officially.
Yes, officially. This is a reminder, as must be done with all new product and people getting hype and forgetting themselves. Until official images and details are released of anything--dolls, other books, accessories, collections--they are not to be uploaded here or even discussed. Leaked images from a Facebook group that were uploaded to a YouTube page and then screenshot and posted on Instagram? Not official. Blocks will come with mega swiftness.
ETA, 9/10/20: America Girl has put up a preview site stating Courtney's release to be 9/15/20.
Courtney Moore is the best gamer in the arcade, and has sweeping imaginative ideas for her own character, Crystal Starshooter, from events in her life. But there's more she's got to face than her high scores and high hopes.
