Your polls were good fun though. It's a shame some people took them far too seriously.

OH MY - THE MARDOX ADS, YO! BACK IN THE DAY, WHEN I WAS 'BUMBLEBEE' I TOTALLY COVERED A MARDOX AD AND GOT IN TROUBLE. I THINK IT WAS STEVIE WHO MESSAGED ME - HE WAS ALL 'I DON'T WANT TO DELETE YOU BECAUSE I LIKE YOU, BUT IF YOU DON'T UNCOVER THE MARDOX AD, I'LL HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO DELETE YOU'. SO, LIKE, I UNCOVERED IT BUT PUT IT SOMEWHERE MORE CONVENIENT ON MY LAYOUT INSTEAD OF THE UGLY PLACE WHERE IT WAS AUTOMATICALLY. AND THEN I TOTALLY GOT ANOTHER MESSAGE SAYING IT HAD TO GO BACK IN THE EXACT SAME PLACE! GOSH, YO - SUCH STICKLERS YOU ALL WERE!

Yes indeed, Steve was very strict about the ads back then! We were allowed to delete diaries if they had been warned and done nothing of it!

How long have you been a memeber of Bloop? - mmm maybe 4 years now

Why did you join? ITW kept going down a lot and I needed a backup diary so I came here...when ITW finally bit the dust I came here full time.

How did members of Bloop treat you upon your arrival? They were nice to me!

How many diaries do you currently have? lol lemme think....3 that are all mine and I share 4 with other people

Who was your 1st friend? - I can't remember

How many Bloopers have you met in real life? - 0

How many Bloop enemies have you made? - a few but they aren't on bloop anymore

Name 3 things that you absolutely love about Bloop & 3 things that you just can't stand: 3 things I love: my friends, the whole general setup, and the fact that HTML codes work really well here and 3 things I can't stand: RC, the DA diary, and thats about it

Have you experienced a Bloop "crash" before? If so, how many times have you experienced it & how did it make you feel? What made you decide not to leave Bloop afterward? - I survived the Bloop Crash of 2006 and the Bloop Blackout of 2008!!!! I was pissed off in 2006 at first but then chalked it up to my own stupid fault for not backing up. Luckily we got almost our whole diaries back but then 2008 happened and again I didn't backup all the way and lost things but decided whatever, I could do with a startover lol. I didn't leave bloop either times because I have faith in the site, in Steve, and just don't think any other diary site compares.

How many of your entries have been nominated for RC? - a few but not since the RC came back this time around because I am on FO now

If you could change just 1 thing about Bloop, what would it be and why? - Im sick of all the blue lol I want to see a feature where you can control the color of the main page when logged in.

I have been a member on and off since June of 2005.

I joined because one of the people I read on TOD had a Bloop, and I fell inlove with the site.

The same way we treat new members now. Kind of aloof, but always nice. :]

I have two. One of my own, and one that I share with Holly (blondehollywood). :D

Uhh...I have no idea. Probably Kyle (the.answer).

Six, but five all happened in one trip. :] I'm meeting a seventh this summer.

None that I know of?

I love that people are so friendly!
I love that the site is easy to navigate.
I LOVE that some of the best people I have ever known have come to me through this site.

I do NOT love the drama.
That's about it. ;]

Yes, I was here for the crash of '08 (both of them ;]). BLOOP 'TILL THE EEEEEND! I can't let a good thing go. ;]

Just one has been RC'd, but I'm happy with that.

Don't change a thing! Gimme moooore awesome!

ow long have you been a member of Bloop? Since April 2003

Why did you join? My now husband Chris and I met on OD. One of his friends switched from OD to here, and we came over to check it out. Chris was here until 2004.

How did members of Bloop treat you upon your arrival? friendly

How many diaries do you currently have? 1

Who was your 1st friend? Chris, and my IRL friend, Nia (Stealthy Sock)

How many Bloopers have you met in real life? two, and I had met them beforehand. :-P.

How many Bloop enemies have you made? um, none that I know of. I am blocked by someone I have NEVER talked to (than I can recall) so that's a bit odd-but I don't make enemies.

Name 3 things that you absolutely love about Bloop & 3 things that you just can't stand: like: small number of people, the layout, the user friendliness. do not like: blockers, whining for comments, only being able to see my own comments. (even though I did that for a time, but it was because I was messing with my settings, and I realized it wasn't necessary and removed it.)

Have you experienced a Bloop "crash" before? If so, how many times have you experienced it & how did it make you feel? What made you decide not to leave Bloop afterward? yes, and they pissed me off. I've never lost entries I cared about , but I was concerned about the site in general. once things got settled, I was okay with staying.

How many of your entries have been nominated for RC? several, not sure how many. I can remember four or so off the top of my head.

If you could change just 1 thing about Bloop, what would it be and why? I can't think of anything right now. :-P

How long have you been a member of Bloop? Since I think.... July 2004

Why did you join? Because TOD was crapping itself every 5 mins, and everyone was all raving about Bloop... so I was a sheep and came and checked out Bloop... and never left

How did members of Bloop treat you upon your arrival? From what I remember... nicely

How many diaries do you currently have? 1

Who was your 1st friend? Actual friend... mrs mandy moo and MyHeartsInOregon - and I am still friends with both! Yay! Mandy is like family!

How many Bloopers have you met in real life? 8 or 9

How many Bloop enemies have you made? Just 1 hater, yo!

Name 3 things that you absolutely love about Bloop & 3 things that you just can't stand: Love - How easy it is to use, the awesome people, the way we always seem to bounce back. Hate - server prices ;), NO EDIT FEATURE IN FORUMS, crazy layout/art diarists who think their shit don't stink :P

Have you experienced a Bloop "crash" before? If so, how many times have you experienced it & how did it make you feel? What made you decide not to leave Bloop afterward? 06 and 08. First one... I was a bit crushed... but then we got stuff back and the only stuff I lost was stuff I was better off letting go and forgetting anyway, so I got over it. 08 one, I surprised myself, I thought I'd be WAY more upset about it, considering I hadn't d/l my diary, but I was surprisingly optimistic!

How many of your entries have been nominated for RC? A few, 3 maybe... not that many

If you could change just 1 thing about Bloop, what would it be and why? Damn edit feature in the forums!

LOVE
-Community here is pretty cool, Ive tried other diary sites and I keep coming back here.
-Cool place to write down your thoughts and you get good response from people. (except now I'm trapped on private) Still the friends I've got on private are the best.
-It's easy to use.

HATE
-Drama, can't stand Dear Anonymous so I don't read it, I ignore all forums that talk about religion or politics. I'm not saying it should stop, other people find it interesting just saying it's not my thing. Chillax people!!

How long have you been a memeber of Bloop?
Um. Whenever the first big ITW crash was (the one before the site went down for good). It's been so long I don't remember.

Why did you join?
I was lonely after the crash. Needed somewhere to put my thoughts, and Journal Community, where most of the ITW refugees migrated to, just didn't cut it.

How did members of Bloop treat you upon your arrival?
Eh. I'm one of those people that fades into the background. That's ok, though. I write for myself, not for others.

How many diaries do you currently have?
One. I had a few others, but they all failed miserably.

Who was your 1st friend?
Peoples I knew at ITW. :P

How many Bloopers have you met in real life?
Zero. You all live too far away!

How many Bloop enemies have you made?
None that I know of. lol

Name 3 things that you absolutely love about Bloop & 3 things that you just can't stand:
Love - Its sense of community, the fact that it's so user friendly, and the dramaramas. It's HIlarious. Really.
Hate - The default colours. XD But that's it. :P

Have you experienced a Bloop "crash" before? If so, how many times have you experienced it & how did it make you feel? What made you decide not to leave Bloop afterward?
I've been here through a couple, now. I tend to stick with a site through the ups and downs. I did the same with ITW.

How many of your entries have been nominated for RC?
None that I know of.

If you could change just 1 thing about Bloop, what would it be and why?
It's all good the way it is. It all falls together nicely and makes life here interesting :D

How long have you been a member of Bloop?
Since 2004, I think! Possibly 2003.

Why did you join?
Yet another TOD convert here! Someone linked to this site in their diary and I followed it, made something. 'Thoughts To Choke On' I believe it was. It took me a while to be convinced it was better than TOD, though.

How did members of Bloop treat you upon your arrival?
It was much smaller than TOD, so quieter than I was used to. I don't remember anyone being horrible.

How many diaries do you currently have?
Two - this one and Lunarsea Loss.

Who was your 1st friend?
I had a serial anonymous hate noter. Though within two entries we ended up being friends. They were the first friend I really remember! Other than that, in later times, Estella. Certainly she was the one who first made me think Bloop was awesome. But I'm such an Estella fangirl.

How many Bloopers have you met in real life?
None!

How many Bloop enemies have you made?
None! I'm too lurkish.

Name 3 things that you absolutely love about Bloop & 3 things that you just can't stand:
- Love the community feel.
- Love the drama - particularly as it tends to be less vicious than TOD drama was. Just fun and entertaining.
- Love the people.

- Wish we had a few more, if only just to help Steve pay the bills! That's the only one thing.

Have you experienced a Bloop "crash" before? If so, how many times have you experienced it & how did it make you feel? What made you decide not to leave Bloop afterward?
I did, and I didn't see it as such a big deal. When we last went up in smoke I debated not coming back. But the thought of no Bloop makes me really sad, and I'd miss people. So I returned. I lost all my diary entries, but like others have said, was my own silly fault, so I'm not going to make a fuss!

How many of your entries have been nominated for RC?
None here, though I had a few on TOD. It was exciting, yo!

If you could change just 1 thing about Bloop, what would it be and why?
Going back to the dislike, I'd give us more members. Be nice to hit about 6000 again.

How long have you been a memeber of Bloop? - Since July 2003, so almost six years.

Why did you join? A former friend of mine suggested it to me.

How did members of Bloop treat you upon your arrival? Everyone was pretty awesome to me, especially Mandy (ceterisparibus) and Stephy (lost.luck.kitten).

How many diaries do you currently have? I have Oprah Noodlemantra, Jane Austen B.C., and I'm a member of three other diaries.

Who was your 1st friend? - The former friend, lol.

How many Bloopers have you met in real life? - Zero, but I have a bunch of IRL friends who joined after I did.

How many Bloop enemies have you made? - A couple, but they all left over the years.

Name 3 things that you absolutely love about Bloop & 3 things that you just can't stand: love: The small community, the ability to personalize your diary, and the friendships. hate: The stupid, never-ending arguments, people that DEMAND comments on every single entry, and the people who view your diary, yet you can't view theirs.

Have you experienced a Bloop "crash" before? If so, how many times have you experienced it & how did it make you feel? What made you decide not to leave Bloop afterward? - I've survived all the crashes between July '03 and now. I never liked any of them, and the last one really upset me, but I couldn't leave Bloop. It's my second home!

How many of your entries have been nominated for RC? - ... No idea. I've had about five or six on RC, maybe more.

If you could change just 1 thing about Bloop, what would it be and why? - Let us devisualize front pages!!!

How long have you been a member of Bloop? Since April of 2003 I believe.

Why did you join? I was on TOD but than that got shitty, discovered bloop and never looked back.

How did members of Bloop treat you upon your arrival? Alright, I don't know, memory sucks.

How many diaries do you currently have? Just this one.

Who was your 1st friend? Steps, is the farthest I could remember.

How many Bloopers have you met in real life? None

How many Bloop enemies have you made? I know of one 'guy' who doesn't like me, I don't even know what the fuck I did to him, and I am sure there are more, but seriously? I could give two shits about what people think about me.

Name 3 things that you absolutely love about Bloop & 3 things that you just can't stand: The small community, layouts and people actually getting to "hear/read" your voice without disrupting or cutting in!

Have you experienced a Bloop "crash" before? If so, how many times have you experienced it & how did it make you feel? What made you decide not to leave Bloop afterward? 2, Well my entries arent sentimental to me, whats sentimental is kept in my brain, my memory's so I didn't care.

How long have you been a memeber of Bloop?
i joined when i was sixteen, so that was 2002. so seven years then. pretty sure i was sixteen anyway.

Why did you join?
tod was getting hacked and i didn't really know anyone.

How did members of Bloop treat you upon your arrival?
they were welcoming and helpful. it was still very small then lol.

How many diaries do you currently have?
i have two.

Who was your 1st friend?
well they all kinda left haha. but an empty frame was here pretty early on and we've been friends for ages.

How many Bloopers have you met in real life?
three! Lady Blue Bella, |stripes|, and saminal.

How many Bloop enemies have you made?
i think i used to have some, but i don't really any more. either because we both got over it, or they left.

Name 3 things that you absolutely love about Bloop & 3 things that you just can't stand:
i like the features, how easily you can make friends and the layouts. i don't like how intolerant, petty and drama filled some people are, who badly people debate and how they can take it to the diaries and just be insulting and just the general stupidity of some blooper.

Have you experienced a Bloop "crash" before? If so, how many times have you experienced it & how did it make you feel? What made you decide not to leave Bloop afterward?
i've experienced every crash, and each one i felt more bummed for my friends than myself as they have actual memories in their diaries. where as mine's just drivel.

How many of your entries have been nominated for RC?
twice that i can remember. once for a rant about bloop and another for a poem i wrote.

If you could change just 1 thing about Bloop, what would it be and why?
DEVISUALISE FRONT PAGES PLZ. lol.
