How about a blog about each and every wordpress inhabitants?

  1. Suddenly this idea came into my head. A blog about people in wordpress. I mean, in this blog I will write my guesses about where you from, what you do, and all that.

    It should be fun for fun's sake. But I'm afraid it would be kind of annoying a lot of people. So I need to know what you think, first.

  2. i blog on http://thenewrepublican.wordpress.com/, i'm a student here in brooklyn and hopefully i grab my degree very soon.Business major!!

  3. As long as you link to people, I think most would like it. But be SURE to link to them.

    You will inevitably come up against someone who is all, "How DARE you speak of me without my permission?!?!?!?!?!" but don't worry, flamewars are great for hits.

    jom22, i think for most of s, yo just have to look at our about page, our own little mirror of what we want the world to know about us.

  5. @rain: of course I'll link.

    @amandzing: I know we can look at the about page. But as you said, it's 'a little mirror of what we want the world to know about us'. Here, I want to enlarge the mirror, to reveal a bit more.

  6. I'm with Amanda on this, it will descend into bitching as sure as you live, it's much better to have an add friend facility which curiously WP doesn't have, I mean there are people when you see their name you automatically click on. I also like shout boxes which are good for exchange of personal info and opinions and there is no permanent record of unpleasantries.
    I think you have recognised that there is scope for something that would make for community.
    Another thing is people are so diverse you have Rep and Dems, christians and atheists young people and older etc.

  7. And that gets me more interested...

  8. Just don't try to guess who people who blog anonymously are in real life.
    That has some nasty consequences.

  9. That's exactly what I'm about to do! Anonymous bloggers in real life.

    Anyways, I just started the blog. Now who wants to take the first flight?!

  10. Gentle dove, just add into your blogroll....

  11. link? jom22

  12. http://inhabitantsof.wordpress.com

    But there's nothing yet. Because the blog's only 2 hours old and I'm still thinking who should go first. Amanda, I think you're interesting...

  13. of course i'm interesting! pffffft.... ;)

  14. I said:
    "Just don't try to guess who people who blog anonymously are in real life. That has some nasty consequences."

    and Jom22 said:

    Then screw you and your blog project, if you want to "out" people and don't care about the consequences for them. Try doing a search for "stalker" in the forums.

  15. That would be pretty cool. I'd love to participate, if you decide to! =)

  16. So it begins.

    jom, I think Bug Girl is talking about actually trying to pin down who people are, like names and where they work and such. That's not good form.

    Making shit up about people, of course, is perfectly appropriate in a blog. I do it all the time!

    Blog about the people on the forum and the goings on behind the scenes. That alone would be a dramatic, page turning novel!

  18. @membracid: great. Go on a vacation. You look terribly pale. And don't worry, I won't give a shit on writing stuff about you, pubic lice!

    @rain: such a good post that is. I just peeped in but haven't dropt something for you there. Just woke up here, too early, so it's kinda hard to use my brains. It's 4.50am in Indonesia now.

    @amanda: I went to your blog and found amazing poetry there. I wonder if someday I could pick one or two of them and compose songs out of them.

    @soprano: great. I'll visit your site and dig you.

  19. songs? ooooookaaaaaaay i think, usual rules apply...

  20. There are real consequences to exposing someone's identity online:

    http://membracid.wordpress.com/2007/07/12/weekly-wtf-more-threats-by-creationists/
    This is just one form of threat; violence against gays, rape survivors, and people of color is also commonly threatened on blogs, and carried out IRL.

    Make up stuff all you want; that's fine.
    I just don't think you should "out" people without their permission.
    And I don't care that I'm the drama queen in this thread--I've been stalked before, and don't want to ever go there again, or have my family put at risk.

  21. rules like? amanda.

  22. acknowledgment, copyright, ownership, and before you publish anything that you may have re-written, i'd like a look at it.

  23. @amanda: sure. I know how it feels like when your works get stolen. Oh, we shouldn't discuss this here... I'll go to your blog after this.

    @membracid: you should note that I respect every kind of human, except hypocrites and liars. And haven't I mentioned that I would not write about you? That's my respect for you. Anyways, thanx for your opinions. I'm sorry that I've been rude to you. I get burned so easily, even my neighbor's cats know that.

    Ok, everybody, I have pulled the lever, so here it goes the introduction of WordPress Inhabitants...

  25. It's not all about me (mostly :), there are other people I know writing online that have been threatened. Just a general politeness/concern for other's safety, as Rain said.

    Have fun making up stuff, Jom!

  28. sorry I posted that 3 times. I thought the first two clicks didn't work so I clicked again and... you see, I spammed this little room!

    @membracid: thanx. besides, I now agree with you. I mean, I limit my moves on 'outing' people. You should read my post (link: see above. You got three links, you can pick one you like most. Heh heh...)

  29. Great! Can't wait until Thursday!

  30. to everybody:

    THANK YOU for being here and share your ideas with me. I appreciate this a lot. Thanx.

    And sopranogirl22 is my first 'victim'. Such a clever, multi-talented pretty girl. A bride-to-be. Awesome...
