Just to set the record straight… Twiyp is NOT an abbreviation for Twilight. Nor does it stand for anything related to the Twilight series – as I recently found out. And no, we are not going on a Twiyp down memory lane or to the Bahamas. Twiyp is right here, right now – one of WikiAnswers’ funniest Supervisors EVER.
Here’s more on the funomenal Twiyp:
How did you originally hear about WikiAnswers?
You know when you go to Wikipedia to look up an article about Brigido Lara, you go to an article about Mexico, redirect yourself to a page about helicopters and then find a sudden interest in balloons?
Yeah… Finding WikiAnswers was nothing like that. I looked up a word, and it suggested I look at a question. Having the urge for a dangerous adventure, I peeked at the answer to find a nonsensical comment! I fixed up the answer a little bit, and then became a member of WikiAnswers after realizing that the entire Web site was incredibly addicting.
Explain your user name.
I had great difficulty deciding on my WikiAnswers user name. A user name should give other people a hint about what you are, who you look like or what you like to do. It expresses your deep love for someone or something, or what you truly believe in…
…Which brings me to my user name Twiyp or The World Is Your Potty.
What motivates you to volunteer your time to the WikiAnswers community?
I like to play a helpful part in any meaningful project, especially when the only reward is a pat on the back… and a “Ruby Contributor” badge.
What are your areas of expertise?
When I’m online in shorter time frames, I like to fix up new answers and re-word new questions. With more time, I enjoy answering questions that require long explanations, especially if they deal with technology – my favorite category is the PHP category.
What is your favorite WikiAnswers feature?
The ability to have bold text! The possibilities are virtually endless. Using bold formatting is less rude than having an all-letters-uppercase word, but has more of an emphasis than italics. I imagine bold words being yelled a tad bit louder than a polite volume.
What has been the funniest question you’ve seen or your funniest experience on WikiAnswers?
What sound is made when the dirt is gone? I laugh at the expression, every time. “Bam! And the dirt is gone!”
Share a random fact about yourself.
I aspire to collect an Airzooka of every possible color. My significant other ties my shoelaces better than me — after all, I can’t tie shoes. But I do have nice shoe and I like them a lot…Just got them a few days ago.
I have a constant craving for vanilla-flavored tea… Except for right now. I’m actually not very thirsty… or am I? I don’t know. I could actually go for a Double-stuffed Oreo cookie right now… mmm…
Probably the thing I like to advertise the most: I’ve performed music in the Sydney Opera House.
