We all know Deezil has an awesome profile.. who else? August 8, 2011 12:38 PM   Subscribe

What are some really cool mefite profiles?

So, I was checking out By The Grace of God's profile and s/he has some really interesting links to metafilter posts that I never seen before.

We've had a couple of posts asking for useful information in people's profiles. (one by BtGoG him/herself!)

I want to ask if there are any not-quite-so-informational but still really interesting/cool profiles out there in the mefite community? We're a creative bunch, and I'm sure there has to be more profiles that people have used as an outlet for their creativity.

(and I could certainly use some inspiration seeing as I have one of the most dull profiles ever)

Mine used to be awesome because for years it had a photo of my cat's excised testicle. Then I changed it and lost the grandfathered image, so all you get is some thoughtless Orwell quote and a link to a blog which demonstrates that I'm my own worst editor.

But my cat's ball was awesome if you have a time machine.

Chrismear had this when custom css was still available.

It should be noted that those last first two, like any other old profiles that have their own CSS, are grandfathered in and can't be changed by their owners. New profiles can't be made now with custom css.

Also, see the wiki.

Actually... holy crap the wiki is way outdated. Don't see the wiki.

I'll add that page to my "to update" list, unless someone beats me to it. :)

I updated the wiki with my profile color (#FF66CC) should anyone wish to replicate the experience on their personal website of choice.

I don't see turntables listed anywhere (username was something like [O.:.O]). I remember him having a wildly CSS'ed page.

I'm just going to start re-posting everything on the front page in my profile so it'll be like that episode of TNG where the butler from The Nanny reconstructs the Enterprise on the holodeck.

Screw profiles, its all about awesome people. You can't get awesomer than me. So yeah...my apologies that you aren't me.

Timely; five minutes ago I noticed a change, and I was just looking for somewhere vaguely appropriate to say thank you into the wind*.
Mine's actually not cool (nor am I a cool mefite [calculating for humidity, and increases to the net energy budget caused by greenhouse effects, and feedback loops tied to oceanic currents, as altered by the desalinization and adjustment of haloclines via addition of ice water to the systems during the melting of glacial bodies]), but it seems there was a change, and it meant cool things happened (when longer profiles=cool); as it previously got cut off like, half way down... I think it is magically all there (thanks for the extra space allowance; now, with our longer mega-profiles we will crush the web once and for all, wait, I meant don't be too proud of this technological terror you have constructed).

When the mythical "dating" sub-site takes off, I think I have set my profile up to be one of the go to sources for chatting, advice, tips and links to further reading on dating, that's for sure. Shirley that'll make me pretty cool, Prettty, Prettty, Prettty cool.

What do you mean by "that isn't what we mean when we talk about talking about dating"? What else would you mean?

*assuming pb lives in the wind (clouds?), and that is how ponies can be delivered, and bugs can be squashed, all seemingly before or simultaneous to when they are identified.

OK, wiki page is updated. I added in a bunch of information and links to various profile pages. I also deleted a lot of others that were listed.

FYI, http://www.metafilter.com/username/______ is a thing.

Yes! Our data limits are now not as limiting. As of late Sunday night.

I thought I'd be fancy and get some internal links, but {a name="something"}{/a} links get simplified into {a}{/a}. Darn you, MetaFilter, you're a tricky one.

Deezil's profile is "What to do when your PC gets infected".

Aside from the mods, it's the only profile I keep a bookmark to.

box: "I love a MeTa double!"

It's at least a quadruple. And two of them mention Deezil in the title.

I enjoyed learning about the MetaFilter Triple-zero Program the day I came across Kattullus's profile.

Uhh...bookmark all eighteen mods, mail in your bookmark file, and receive a mod action figure * . That's why I do it.

* Limit 1 per person. No purchase necessary.

I had a profile, then this guy from Google plus showed up ...

It was you! I went there once, and it was all red, so I got out of there as quick as I could before I was rendered to goo and used to paint the walls..

But I've been wondering about it ever since.

Things I now know: Google+ is now a profile thing & people still use LastFM.

Okay. It's a wash.

As you were, we'll do this same thread again in a month or so.

I did it originally so I could remember who they were. I still have them because I never bothered cleaning out that folder.
