We have profiles:

I know of Mutant's jaw dropping profile and crunchland's informitive one. What other user's profiles are worth checking out?
People with pink backgrounds and/or consuming large doughnuts need not apply, I know about you already :).

Mine. I have a crappily written tribute to Doom and a picture of my fingernails.

This derkins guy scares me, he has 666 favorites, I'm praying for my soul now.

You know about pink, but do you know about Gator?
posted by soundofsuburbia at 5:08 PM on March 26, 2009


Gator's looks cool.
posted by Brandon Blatcher at 5:10 PM on March 26, 2009


Where'd crunchland go? You thing he'd list his own sockpuppet, if he's posting under a new name.

Kattullus profile is a good read.

Well, he was using his real name for a while but apparently that's kaput as well. Wherever you are, Dave Faris, you are missed here.

Oh, but yeah, The Crunchland Method is still a good read for new posters.

I always enjoy a stroll down John Kenneth Fisher lane.

P.S dude, update!

If you want a good laugh, check out this person's AskMe questions. Freak.

gman, I was curious to see what the first anonymous question was. It's the most innocuous unanonymous anonymous ever.
posted by tellurian at 8:49 PM on March 26, 2009


I'd be embarrassed to put my name to that question too.
posted by gman at 8:56 PM on March 26, 2009


languagehat's profile has got a lot of useful resources and cool links.

It also cracks me up that the first comment in the first anonymous question is Item outing himself as the author in order to clarify.

Can't anonymous comment?

dersins,

When I looked at your profile, I thought it said "Gender: cortex".

Never forget Kate's eye-gougingly awful profile.

correction: what mjj lists are users webpages. Still of interest though.

True, but I can top that - I still miss evanizer sometimes.

My profile used to be awesome. Too bad you missed it.
posted by Eideteker at 4:45 AM on March 27, 2009


Yeah, Eideteker's profile used to be full of wizards riding motorcycles jumping over chasms of flame while fighting half-robot gorillas who were armed with machetes and AK-47s. The wizard was yelling as he blasted one with his magic wand, killing another gorilla's tiger mount with the laser blaster in his off hand.

When you viewed the profile, a badass guitar riff would start to play and a scantily clad barbarian of your preferred gender would kick down your door and demand to introduce you to the ways of savage love.

So yea, y'all missed a good one.

I saved that profile to my PC, and still play the minigames sometimes.
posted by graventy at 5:44 AM on March 27, 2009


oh hey whats the user whose profile is some eye-mashing bright color, like lime green, or pink, or aqua or turquoise or pink or chartreuse or pink or pink?

You and me both.
posted by languagehat at 6:34 AM on March 27, 2009


Excuse me, Mr. bleeding, but in Eideteker's profile, is there a way to get out of the dungeon without using the wizard key?
posted by SpiffyRob at 6:52 AM on March 27, 2009


Wow, I just discovered thru mjj's list that a couple of sites I visit regularly are run by mefites and I never knew it.
posted by CunningLinguist at 6:57 AM on March 27, 2009


Anyone else out there whose profiles show that there are no other members near them?
posted by ambient2 at 6:59 AM on March 27, 2009


Of course.
posted by ODiV at 7:17 AM on March 27, 2009


Having members near me would make me uncomfortable.

Heh, the economy just decided to give ma a lot more free time, so I'll make it a priority within the week :-)

HOW did I miss that epic comic sans thread? I don't know why the simple act of changing a font can fill one with such delight, but color me tickled. I wish I could share it with my IRL friends, or post it on Facebook, but I know those who reside outside of the fold would think something is wrong with me.
posted by nonmerci at 10:00 AM on March 27, 2009


This is definitely the first time I considered the concept of MeFi as being "in the fold".
posted by Phire at 10:07 AM on March 27, 2009


The fold of undisputed, glorious awesome.
posted by nonmerci at 10:12 AM on March 27, 2009


The best part of the comic sans thread was the switchover, when suddenly, dozens and dozens of comments in, Matt hacked the display font. You can get that from context, of course, but (at the risk of invoking You Had To Be There) it was just such a great swerve in the context of the developing thread.

The Comic Sans thread is probably my favorite. I don't know of many great profiles, but Mutant's, as mentioned in the OP, is incredibly great and I love the effort he put into it.

You've got at least one fan.

Aquafortis had the most incredible self-analyzing I've ever seen, but she's removed it. Put it back please!

where's amberglow or jackmo ? I never got to hang with evanizer, i'm sad about that, i know i shouldnt be but i am - mjj's profile is pretty great.

ok it's better than pretty great : )
posted by sgt.serenity at 3:13 PM on March 27, 2009


My profile contains this insane run of Touhou 12 in Lunatic mode, and I like to think the awesomeness of this video rubs off on the rest of my profile. But it probably doesn't.
posted by Marisa Stole the Precious Thing at 5:07 PM on March 27, 2009


I'm surprised no-one mentioned my profile.

Actually, come to think of it, I'm not surprised at all, really.
posted by Effigy2000 at 8:55 PM on March 27, 2009


You and me both.
And me. It was he that brought me in through the back door. So to speak. 'twas love ever after, til the bastard just up and vanished on me like all the boys in my life do when they tire of my incessant run-on sentences that just meander about talking about really nothing at all and yeah he had a sockpuppet for awhile, I remember now, but then that one walked away too the fucker and I never really knew what to put on my profile it's pretty much said the same thing for six or seven years now but yeah I miss that evanizer fucker.
posted by WolfDaddy at 9:44 PM on March 27, 2009


Well, I'm ashamed of my profile now, so I've decided to improve it with a lot of self-links.
