On Urban Dictionary...
« on: February 26, 2019, 11:10:43 pm »
"Hoppertitus" was finally published in the Urban Dictionary :))
https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Hoppertitus

I didn't know you were published, Chief  :)

Er... That WAS you, yes?

I had my first definition published on Urban Dictionary in 2004 (when I was admin'ing NukeCops) but lost track of my login credentials. About every year or two, after that, I'd try to guess my login creds. Then, they changed up the auth process - no longer using the Username/Password format. But, I kept trying anyway.

Well, I'll be damned if I didn't finally figure out a workaround last year (2018). How's that for persistence?

After a few hits n' misses, I finally had a second definition published, this week (Feb. 2019): https://goo.gl/GXkJAn

Any other Peppermint fanbois published over there?

Yeah that was me, just done as a joke (and misspelled .. should have been hoppertitis)  :-[)

I like the sound of that IB4TL game, but it'd be too easy for me to cheat on here .. not to mention would probably end up with my locking lots of topics in a downward spiral attempting to 'win' :))

I like the name "Credge." You can go two ways with it:

Chrome + Edge = Credge
Crap + Edge = Credge

(guess which one I prefer)

Note: I'm not saying Chrome is crap, just that most things Microsoft are, particularly web browsers. (and other default Windows tools, I use as few as possible) Given a choice between Chrome and Credge, I'd run Chrome with no hesitation.

It kinda tricky getting published over there - not as bad as Wikipedia, but similar.

Quality control

By default, each definition is accepted or rejected based on the number of "Publish" or "Don't Publish" votes it receives from volunteer editors. The editors are not bound by any criteria for the approval or rejection of definitions. Editors previously needed a valid email address, but it is no longer required, as three options are provided for new words: "Add It!," "Keep Out!," and "I Can't Decide." However, a Facebook or Gmail account is required to post a new definition.[15] Editors are not allowed to edit entries for spelling, wording or punctuation.

Every time I login, they ask me to vote on new definitions, and I do.

I figure I'm a pretty average guy, in lots of ways. So, I base my submissions on something I would vote "Add It!"

Kinda fun having access to Urban Dictionary again, after all these years  :)
