Survey says .. Nate the Quizmaster
A few years back, "quiz" type surveys were very big ... "Which cast member of Different Strokes are you?" and whatnot. It was bigger on Myspace, but there is a section of Rachel's Haven that had a ton of those posted. I wasn't a fan for one simple reason ... many newbies would try to get their 50 posts to see the gallery by posting a bunch of "I am 75 percent Mrs. Garrett" replies to the original quiz post and link, instead of making actual real posts.
Sammie however has posted quite a bit since she joined though so it wasn't a big deal AND she seemed to be the queen of the quiz surveys. I figured that instead of telling you what/who you are, there SHOULD be a site that makes you exactly what it wants you to be, especially if you lie!
I thought it was pretty good, but honestly, it probably won't age as well as many of my other captions. Its been over 3 years since I posted this, and I don't think these sites/apps are nearly as popular as they were. I wonder how many people will fondly remember Myspace 10 years from now? Probably less than those who are nostalgic about Geocities vanity websites in the late 1990's! I vaguely recall Pretty Sissy Dani's one there, though I think she might have had her own URL at some point.
DISCUSSION QUESTION: I think we've done a variation of this before, but what TG or TF site do you miss the most? i know some of them are available in archive form, but which ones do you wish were still around and in their prime?
PS. I am not sure if I posted this one before. If I did, oh well!!
PPS: The irony in all this is that I just popped onto the Haven and the 2nd newest posting refers to a quiz. Perhaps I've been too quick to declare quizzes and surveys dead?!?
