I have noticed several diascrepancies between the location of a player in the directory and the profile page. Which one is the correct one?

The location in the directory is the country where the player claims to be from when he/she joins. It's selected from a menu.

The location in the profile is the place (country, state, county, province, town, planet) that the player claims to be from when he/she fills in that field in the profile.

Neither is necessarily the truth.

Sibl just pointed out to me that my country is listed as Algeria in the Directory. She knew my real name was Linda -must have been a friend from before- I checked and Heidi is listed as Algeria. Sure it must be an error on my part but not sure how to correct-thanks sibl

Sorry about the misspelling, Sblv Think i had better go back to bed and try again. Of course, you knew my name as it is on my profile. Still would like to know how to fix the Directory. Nothing against Algeria but I was Mi. born and raised-thanks

Some folks make an honest mistake, like you. Others do it on purpose to disguise their location for many reasons, some harmless, some with ahidden agenda. Anyone can "claim" they are in Arizona, for example, and really be in Georgia, U.S. or the country of Georgia.

Or some editors with massive craniums giving false information about their player identity. A player telling a lie is one thing but and editors decieving players should resign at once.

In the winter I'm glad I really do live in Arizona!

Oh, and I'm teaching my cat to sleep on my laptop, Tuzilla. Thanks for the tip!

Felix - dude - buddy, I don't get it.

Mike, it would be so much better if the guilty party turns himself in. Just more proof that the finger pointing rule only applies to certain people. There is a double standard for the elitest player/editor Sploofer.

I guess I haven't been following this story - I was confused. I am here to chill out. I wonder what would motivate someone to be unscrupulous and underhanded on a site where there is no apparent benefit for said behaviors. Felix, I think you write some good, entertaining and interesting quizzes. However, I struggle to see the point of investing so much energy into stirring up the pot. Justin is the dude. If there is something that is out of sorts, well, he'll sort it out. Have faith and enjoy.

He had that chance previously. The truth did not come out. I can see taking the side of a friend instead of a player. I hope your family and intellect is never insulted. If left alone I'll be fine, But when someone whose power has gone to his oversized head starts trouble what do you expect? Happy Holidays.

I am sorry I chimed in - I really am lost - I will continue to enjoy your quizzes. I should not respond where I have little/no knowledge. I wish you well.

Much thanks, Mike. You, as are most people here a good person. The agitator was not really worthy of a response, but being the lovable scamp that I am I gave one anyway. Happy Holidays.

I picked GA when i registered because "Lala Land" was not an option.

Actually, it's true. Anyone can register with any location when they join Sploofus. I'm sure Justin has no trouble tracing an IP address if someone starts to become a problem. I'd bet he can ban the IP address, too, if he wants.

Several months ago, when I played WR often, people were talking in the Shout Box about someone's blog. Remember the blog? Anyway, there was someone who posted some very obscene (pornographic) things on the blog several days in a row. He is probably the reason the "blog" went away. That person's profile looked fake. I'm sure there are lots of less than committed Sploofus players (bored pre-teens, kooks, etc) that get a kick out of creating the fake profiles.

Madison St between Michigan Ave. and Vine st. 1 1/2 blocks south of Adrian College and two houses down from the ATO frat house and 1 mile from the West Side carryout and 1/2 mile south of the Wesco gas station in a large white Cape Cod on a lot that abuts Petoskey Court and by God that's all the information your going to get, so there!!!!

Donden: Two houses away from the ATO house? Wow. That could very good (keg parties) and bad (sick people leaving keg parties).

Donden, I know exactly were you live. I am an A.C. grad. I live in Tecumseh. I work part time at the college in the counseling department. I am at A.C. only Tuesday mornings at this time.

For those of you who don't know the area, I live about 15 - 20 minutes from Donden.

Donden inspired me to update my profile with my EXACT location.

I used to live on Gove Ct in Tecumseh, but now I am in Minnesota.

Mon, 11th Dec '06 12:36 AM

One of my best friends in high school lived on Gove in that subdivision. (I graduated from Tecumseh High School in 1993). Now my mother-in-law lives in Gove so I usually try to avoid that particular area.

Fenix you really need to tell me what I can do to put this situation behind us, feel free to email me if that works better. There are much better things to do here on Sploofus than let bad feelings fester, so please contact me. I try very hard to stay away from conflicts between players, conflicts between players and editors, and even conflicts between editors. This one has lasted for quite some time though (years!) and I'm hopeful that we can work together and git 'er done.

Donnden, Umma, Jerry and Justin, I live very close by in Wauseon (if you know where that is) As a matter of fact, my husband and I had dinner at Evan's Street Station two weeks ago, Wow! Has anyone been? Their brie is killer. Also I work at Toledo Hospital.It's very interesting to know that we are all in the same general area

Ummagumma  (Level: 67.4 - Posts: 186)

I live 03 blocks from Evans Street Station and yes - I know where Wauseon is.

My oldest son, Sean, lives in Ypsilanti. My other son and daughter live in Canton. Most of my adult yearsI resided within Detroit city limits as my husband was a Detroit PO-requirement. I now live in what used to be a small town-ever growing-called St. Cloud. Tourists know it as Kissimmee/St. Cloud-close to the Disney attractions. I do not feel any need for secrecy-respect the Editors need for that though. I will follow others' example and update my profile. I enjoy this thing so very much but at times the "drama"/accusations, in-fighting is a bit overwhelming. Perhaps I should just play, write quizzes when I think of something, and stay away from the chat Thanks

I was visiting my parents in Adrian when I found out about Sploofus. They had an interview with Mr. Sploofus himself in the local paper (The Daily Telegram). It covered the whole story about who influenced him and how he came up with the name Sploofus. There was even a picture. I'd say more but that would kill all the mystery. When I returned home I checked out the site and signed up.

My brother lives close to Donden. I'll watch for the custom cars this summer.

I too found out about Sploofus through the Daily Telegram - They should do a follow-uo.

Donden Is your house green with burgondy (sp?) shudders, next to Lyn the Auction guy?
