Back to our regularly scheduled Contributor Corner, and who better to resume this than with IncaBlue? Dedicating his knowledge and time all the way from England, IncaBlue (or Peter) is a long-time WikiAnswerer who has managed to climb up the ranks to achieve the roles of Category Supervisor of Humor and Amusement Corner, Mentor, Senior Supervisor, Vandal Patrol Generalist, and more recently, Gold Contributor.
Well, as he is clearly very proud of his adventures across WikiAnswers (as evidenced on his bio page) here’s some more of what IncaBlue has to say about his community participation and real world adventures:
How did you originally hear about WikiAnswers?
WikiAnswers first popped up on the radar as I was surfing the net for information. I clicked on the WikiAnswers site… a few clicks later and I was hooked.
Explain your .
I’m a cat lover and my username is in honor of a beautiful blue Burmese named Inca.
What motivates you to volunteer your time to the WikiAnswers community?
I guess the reason I choose to take an active part in the site is because I love it for what it is, an honest, friendly and popular site, with lots of good people who work hard to keep it that way.
What are your areas of expertise?
I trained as a Chef and love answering questions on cooking hints and tips; I also have a wacky sense of humor and enjoy writing humorous answers in Humor and Amusement Corner such as the one I have featured on my bio page.
What is your favorite WikiAnswers feature?
The Recent Site Activity feature; I can sit and refresh contributions as they happen, scanning the list for vandalism, and then pinging a polite message to the would be vandal. It’s surprising how many instantly stop – they just don’t expect a real person to be watching.
I’d just love a feature that took a snap shot of their face the moment they realize they have been caught.
What has been the funniest question you’ve seen or your funniest experience on WikiAnswers?
Recently my funny bone has been tickled by the introduction of the new Auto Category tool. Most of the time it will suggest the correct category however it can throw up some very odd suggestions which make me giggle.
Share a random fact (or two) about yourself.
I have an ‘Amazing Award’… As a member of an adventure club, I undertook twelve amazing activities. These included Abseiling in the dark, Spinning Double Decker ‘London’ buses on a skid pan, Fire Eating, Racing Honda Pilots, Shearing a sheep (with expert supervision) and a nine day adventure of white water rafting through 277 miles of the Grand Canyon… Amazing!
