FEATURED PLAYERS

Okay, I'm still trying to understand this site...
Who does the featured player, how are we supposed to guess?

Thanks Geri!
Can you access the Beta site if you upgrade to platinum?

I followed that link, Geri, and it recognizes me and I'm able to play games. I didn't think that was possible because I'm neither platinum nor was I a tester. What's going on?

Wow, Judy, I don't know. I did read in one thread that both gold and platinum members were eligible to register to be beta testers. Anyway, that's strange. Whenever I go to the beta site, if I try to play a game, the system asks me to log in. I did try to log in once, but I wasn't recognized, and I didn't expect to be since I'm not a beta-tester. Well, anyway, I don't know what to say other than maybe submit a support ticket so you can consult with an expert about it.

No, in order to be a beta-tester, you had to register some time ago. The registration process occurred before I joined. Anyway, the beta-testers are helping Justin (Sploofus creator and alchemist) work out the bugs in 2.0, and eventually all of us will be able to play on the new site.

Hopefully someone who knows more about all this will jump in and be able to offer some more info.

Don't forget to look at the date that the post was created! ^^^^^^
Maybe this will help!

Oh good you're here! I have another question and don't want to appear idiotic. What does it mean when a quiz says that it is Sploofactorproof?

Thanks for all of your help and insight Geri!

Lovesmoodies - The Sploofactorproof title has become sort of a brand designation of one particular player. It just means that the quiz is one of his. Do not let the title scare you off!

Okay! Thanks. The Beta site let me in right away. I will get out now and wait! Sorry!

What an amazing site! I learn something new every damn day!
If only there was a quick, easy, inexpensive way to communicate
this information to a number of people all at once.

Where are the innovators whne we need them?!

Sploofinder and other editors,
I just want you to know that I never ever ever in a million years would have posted the link to the beta site had I known that any non-beta testers could get in. I've done beta-testing for other software myself in the past and would never do anything intentionally to create problems for Justin and any other programmers he might have.

My intention was to be helpful to the original poster who wanted to know what a Featured Player was.

Anyway, I sincerely apologize for any trouble the posting of the link caused.

Geri,

You have been very helpful to me. I can't imagine anyone thinking you would do something maliciously.

I'm pretty sure it was just a fluke. (A fun one while it lasted.) It was pretty obvious that you had no malicious intent!

I was told that Sploofactorproof was originated by one player but has come to generally mean that both the questions and answers are very short. Am I wrong?

I was looking for the answer about the featured player but I am not seeing it. Help the addled.

My answer about the Featured Player was deleted because aside from providing a basic explanation, I also posted a link that I didn't know I shouldn't post. Hence my later apology post.

Anyway, the Featured Player is a feature of Sploofus 2.0. Each day, a new Sploofuser is chosen, I assume at random, to be in the spotlight. Those of us who are not beta-testers for the new Sploofus will be able to see and appreciate this new feature soon enough, once 2.0 is released for everyone. In the meantime, I hope this description suffices.

I'm not a beta-tester, but since I posted the original explanation, I decided to reply.

Geri is not a beta tester, but she plays one on TV.
