Thought this may be a bit of fun to list some of the things i like and dislike about Sploofus.
1)Being able to author quizzes
2) Being able to take others quizzes
3) Winning a showdown after one week even after getting it wrong but the other player doesn't respond
4)The feeling one gets after receiving an Editors Award
5)Being able to post pointless things like this.

1)Being at number 1 in a word round with 1 minute to go only for 3 really fast people to take it and knock you down to 4th.
2)Getting a trivia showdown question right but the other person gets it faster.
3)Staging a trivia wager on a subject you are good at only to get the most random question ever that you have no idea and then losing.

Obviously these dislikes are not things that are wrong with Sploofus itself as we all know how fantastic a place this is. Justin keep up the good work and same goes to the editors.

Anyone else want to add to this?

My favorite thing about Sploofus would be the friends I have made here. In never thought it was possible to make friends with people over a website unless you belong to one of "those" sites, but here we are, meeting in Chicago in a couple of weeks. I'm excited to meet these friends in person. I was talking with Kelly the other day, and we no longer say our "online" friends, or even our "sploofus" friends - now we just say "friends."

What I don't like about Sploofus? Some of the people I've met on here.

I'm with Lodi.....I love so much about Sploofus, but I never dreamed I would feel so strongly about the site and the folks I have met through here.
There are many folks who mean a helluva lot to me that I now call my "Sploofus Family".

Another thing I don't like about sploofus? Not being able to edit my posts. I hate it when I reread a post and realize I spelled something incorrectly or typed a wrong word. Then my idiotness is there permenantly.

Oh, Lodi, you could never look like an idiot, silly girl!

The only dislike I have is when someone gives the answer to the previous question on the next question being asked. Very annoying. Reflection can be done on the summary page. One American's thought. Happy Labor Day.

Where the quiz is one with longer questions I actually prefer the answer to be given on the next question - I've usually forgotten what I answered by the time I get to the end of the quiz!

I agree Berylm and by the way, thanks for the kind comment Geo.

What I like most is that Sploofus gives me a much needed diversion from work. What I dislike is losing a trivia wager or a showdown question because someone has a faster connection than I do. Oh well, you take the good with the bad.

This site was fabulous when I joined, and it has improved exponentially.

The only things I dislike are the whiners.

I love being able to auther quizzes. This site is so fun. After just a couple times on here, I became addicted. Now, I'm on here everyday. Thanks for the fun.

What I love about Sploofus:

1) People I have met here.
2) Friends I have met here.
3) Free beer

What I dislike:

1) Hang on...oh yea...whiny people I have met here
2) Hang on...friends that no longer come around.
3) CRAP...the promise of free beer and alas not one free glass.

Just my 2 cents....Me

I lpve sploofus. It keeps my brain in shape...well it keeps at least one of my last two brain cells in shape....the other is usually sleeping. Some of the people are insane but insanity is a good makes me feel at home.

My dislikes werent meant to be whines, i guess the humour was lost somewhere over the atlantic, we all know how great and enjoyable this place is.

Oh no! We got the humor, please don't think we didn't. None of the whiny stuff was directed at you, I promise! In the history of sploofus, there have been a lot of people who have had big melodramatic rants in the chats about trivial things (pun intended) and THOSE are the people that we consider the whiners. There haven't been any of those posts in the recent past, but if you go through the chat archives, I'm sure you'll find some.

Thanks for starting this post - look how fun this has been!

Likes are many...Dislikes just one; It is highly addictive. At least there are no withdrawal symptoms

One more dislike: the message I get all too often upon completing the final word puzzle - sorry, incorrect guesses cost three moves! Uaually it is not a guess at all but a careless typo or a word omitted. Bbut, the positives oiyweigh the negatives
