PERHAPS A STUPID QUESTION


If I want to find a players home page, and I don't have a post or a quiz by them in hand, is there a search function or directory to find them in?

I got nuthin' here...

You can also click on any player that's currently online from the bottom of the screen. Then delete that player's name from the end of the web address and put in the name of the player you want the homepage for.

There's also a player directory you can access.

Awesome. You look hot in your profile. I knew this Sploofus thing would eventually pay off....

I usually use the method Kravfighter suggested. I'm hoping that 2.0 includes a search function for the user directory. It has gotten too big to be usable the way it is now.

That's true. It used to be that the names weren't broken up by the alphabet and it was impossible if you wanted to check a name that was several letters away. Its better now but with over 30,000, still quite difficult to navigate.

I always use the method Kravfighter suggested as it seems to work best for me. I was proud when I found out about it!

That method works great IF you know the exact spelling of the desired username. If you don't, you have to find some other method: Did they post in the chats somewhere? Do they have a quiz listed? Are they online? If you can't find their name anywhere, and all you know is what it KIND of looks like, then you have to dredge through the directory.

Go to your command center and then on the left hand side it has a list. The last item is the player directory.

Wow that was really a good question. I didn't know there were so many answers.

Or if you click on 'Your Sploofus Space,' above left, it is in the list on the left. Right above 'Upgrade Your Account.'

If I know the name I want to search for, I use a simpler method. I go to the bottom of the page and randomly click on a player name. Their page will appear. On your address line you will see their name in the page address. I delete their name and add the name I am looking for and hit enter.

Uh Steve...duh...that's exactly what Kravfighter already said! But that is also my preferred method.

Simply write a quiz with a wrong answer. Cull the responses until you find the person you want. It is like fishing, if you want a big fish, use big bait.

Or you could pull out your telephone directory and start with AAA Locksmith...oh, nevermind.

I know I'm not part of this clique...but my suggestion is to see if the player is on one of the leaderboards, in case he/she isn't presently playing, and click on the name there.

Smaug, if you're trying to find me, you don't have to go through the directory. You don't have to say anything, and you don't have to do anything. Not a thing. Oh, maybe just whistle. You know how to whistle, don't you, Smaug? You just put your lips together and... blow.

My personal space has been violated and I don't feel safe.








I refer, of course, to Stone barging in on our clique.

You know, I believe I see a new comedy team forming here. Eesusbejesus and Smaug could be the next Ann Meara and Jerry Stiller. Think about it.

STONE, please don't feel there is a "clique" here.
Everyone can post a message on the Chat - sometimes
it piques another member's interest and they respond.
We all feel a liitle ignored when no-one responds....

If there is a clique here, it's mostly the ramblings
of the Insane bantering with the Manic....
Just ignore them....maybe they'll go away....

Thank you, Rowlanda, but I will probably feel as if I intrude for a while yet.
