blogging gobbledygook and such

Remember I said something about Juan and I doing a project together? Well, this is it!

I created the content for the quizzes, while he whipped the html up on his self-hosted domain. So what we have here for you are 3 quizzes about the WordPress.com Forum, which was where I got to know great people like Juan and many other bloggerdygook readers.

The content was rather slapdash work on my part, so please don’t expect too much from it! I hope you’ll play the quizzes for fun, even if you don’t go to the forum or have no clue what’s it about! (Just answer the questions as if you are in the forum scenarios described.) Don’t forget to let me know what are your results. πŸ˜‰

Which WordPress.com Forum Volunteer Are You?

Which WordPress.com Forum Moderator Are You?

Which WordPress.com Forum Troll Are You?

If you want to offer positive feedback (you liked it!) or constructive criticism (you disliked it!), please comment!

I’d like to say thank you to Juan for making time in his extremely busy schedule to do this.

Comments on: "WordPress.com Forum Quizzes" (28)

  1. Cool quizzes, sulz! I had a go at them, and here’s what I got:

    Volunteer: sulz (!)
    “Don’t know much, but you make up for your lack of knowledge with your friendliness and niceness around the forums.”

    Moderator: Trent
    “It’s a challenge keeping a cheerful tone around a forum full of fit-throwing mad users, but you manage it and that’s why everybody loves you.”

    Troll: anti-Wordpress (??)
    “You drop links in your posts like it’s going out of fashion tomorrow; it does help in your argument though. You are the reason for many of the closed threads. You would be associated with famous banned users such as wank, root and drmike.”

    I’ll admit to having had to make up answers to some of the questions, because I’m not trollish enough to fit them! And I’ve never really had any problem with wordpress…

    sulz: thanks! yeah, but it’s interesting to know what kind you could be! πŸ˜‰

  2. I got the same answers as BobbyG. But I think only the sulz one was accurate because I mostly made up the answers to the rest of them for I’m not a moderator, much less a troll. I lurve WordPress.com. Free $15 for my next CSS Upgrade, anyone? πŸ˜›

    You’re a better volunteer than I am obviously. I’m hardly ever around.

    sulz: well, it’s all playacting fun these quizzes (like those blogthings quizzes) – as you said you aren’t a mod or a troll. hehe, i wouldn’t mind another year’s worth for myself too!

    i hardly ever volunteer there anymore; i just don’t seem to know anymore ever since the dashboard upgrade!

  3. β€œYou are Sulz! Don’t know much, but you make up for your lack of knowledge with your friendliness and niceness around the forums.”

    Actually, this describes it all much better:

    “Once in a blue moon doesn’t even describe how rare you visit the forum”

    You are Trent! It’s a challenge keeping a cheerful tone around a forum full of fit-throwing mad users, but you manage it and that’s why everybody loves you.

    Since I am not a moderator on WP, I pretended I was answering questions for Grungemedia.com where I am a mod.


    I didn’t know how to answer the troll questions…

    sulz: hmm, so you’re juan in the results, maybe? πŸ˜‰ you could if you had your css upgrade, then you’d have those css knowledge!

    heh, today is play pretend on bloggerdygook! πŸ˜€ were you that nice a mod? hmm… πŸ˜›

    oh, just click any old answer for the troll quiz! πŸ˜†

  4. Hmmm. I got the same three answers as B0bby & Ish. I’ll be interested to see what other answers show up, but it seems we have a lot of sulz’s here. I think that’s because we are your readers, so that naturally makes us pretty nice people. πŸ™‚ It was fun to take the quizzes. Nice work, sulz & Juan!!!

    sulz: heh, my niceness is contagious! πŸ˜€ thanks!

  5. Why am I raincoaster on the Volunteer forums. What do I have to answer to become myself again?

    sulz: because you’re as scary as her when you have your sarky mode going on? πŸ˜› when i did the quiz there isn’t a deltafoxtrot result, sorry! i did it based on the old forum crowd… you’d probably be half rain + half juan (he’s a css expert to – he did most of my skins!).

  6. okay… I got the same answers as b0bbyg, Ish, and museeditions. πŸ˜€

    sulz: we’re too nice! πŸ˜› i’m sure we’ll see different results as more people play it.

  7. Hi sulz,
    I’m leaving a comment so you know I read your posts …lol πŸ˜› but I no longer identify with life behind the garden wall. All my best to all.

    sulz: okay, thanks for dropping by…

  8. That. Is. Hilarious.

    You’re both to be congratulated: you are very brave. (I better be cool in this quiz, dammit!)

    sulz: haha, thanks. πŸ™‚ it’s all in the name of fun! there’s a disclaimer, hope that calms any ruffled feathers. πŸ˜›

    and you haven’t taken it?? ah, you’ll know which answers to take in the volunteer one.

  9. […] be on new CSS skins, it looks like they went in a completely unexpected direction, cooking up some quizzes that are hilariously revealing and very, very inside. Don’t worry if you don’t get them; it just means you have a life outside an open […]

  10. I’m Me, Tellyworth, and Anti-Wordpress Troll. But I’m not nice enough to be Tellyworth.

    sulz: there aren’t any raincoaster equivalent among the mods! heh.

  11. Ha! I came out as Sulz!!! I suppose that’s as good a volunteer as any. Still – feel a bit cheated. Always thought Raincoaster and I were seperated at birth as part of some secret govt. experiment.

    sulz: muahaha, i’m the popular vote for the first time. πŸ˜€ that’s ‘cos you’re way too nice! um, not that rain isn’t uh, nice… πŸ˜› but i’m sure you can hold on your own very well when it comes to dealing with trolls!

  12. This is very fun–thanks sulz!

    BTW, I’m Raincoaster as a volunteer.
    You forgot to have an “answers all questions with an insect reference” option, so I guess no one will turn up as me.

    πŸ˜€

    sulz: thanks, i’m glad you enjoyed it! πŸ™‚ if juan can fit another session into his terribly busy schedule maybe i could whip up a volunteers 2.0 quiz version. πŸ˜€

  13. Bravo, you two! Loved it!

    sulz/trent/old-fashioned troll

    sulz: thanks! i’ve emailed the busy man all the love he’s got here. πŸ™‚

    i guess we’re all very nice people but could possibly turn nasty if we wanted to! hehe. πŸ˜›

  14. Quiz I took
    Which WordPress.com Forum Volunteer Are You?

    Answer I got
    You are sulz! Don’t know much, but you make up for your lack of knowledge with your friendliness and niceness around the forums.

    Thanks for writing up this quiz.. πŸ™‚

    sulz: i’m too popular for my own good! hahaha. πŸ˜› thanks for playing and sharing. πŸ™‚

  15. Glad y’all liked it! It was really fun working on this project.

    sulz: thanks again for doing it, especially since you’re so busy.

  16. Brilliant! Just bloody brilliant!

    sulz: haha, thanks for the compliment! πŸ˜€

  17. I have a blogging project going on currently [Wish You Were Here]
    Give me a plane ticket and I’ll be there. πŸ˜›

    sulz: give me emperorship and i’ll send you there. πŸ˜‰

  18. […] and I worked on this fun project: WordPress.com Forum Quizzes. Check it […]

  19. sulz: give me emperorship and i’ll send you there.
    No one gets emperorship. How about the post for Minister of Education? πŸ˜›

    sulz: haha, i’ll corrupt the students with my foul mouth and dirty mind. :mrgreen:

  20. Well we’ll make you Minister of Military Educartion.

    sulz: we’d be the most peaceful country ever because i’m too chicken for war. :mrgreen:

  21. *Education, then. :mrgreen:

    I must reread what I type before hitting post comment… 😦

  22. Right, You’re fired. I’m now making you Minister of Tourism. πŸ˜€

    sulz: what fired? i quit! i never even asked for the position, hmph.

    (besides, i haven’t even been out of the country, i can’t possibly be a tourism minister.)

  23. C’mon, I’ve got a poultry minister who’s never had a “chick” in life, a porn minister who’s too… um saintly. You’ll do fine. πŸ˜›

    sulz: i need to see the country’s profile before i accept the position… and if i take up the job, things are going my way. think you can handle that, emp? muahaha…

  24. Would you believe that I came up as Trent…..who would have thought! Good fun!

    sulz: amazing indeed! πŸ˜› glad you enjoyed it.

  25. I am you!! πŸ™‚

    sulz: hey you! haha… you were nice when you volunteered there anyway. πŸ™‚

  26. Well, I aim to be nice. πŸ™‚

    sulz: a very noble one to have, if any! πŸ˜€

  27. […] Obviously that sparked my interest as I was wondering why on Earth raincoaster was unsure about who she was. But then again, we are talking about raincoaster here.. I followed her links which led me to sulz’s blog, although, shouldn’t that be my blog as I’m her? Turns out her and Juan [you know, the guy who did this amazing theme] had a project that involved quizzes to determine our split personalities on the forums. […]

  28. […] WordPress.com Quizzes I created (content-wise), if you didn’t already know! I think an update is in order, […]
