    SAMPHIRE'S PROFWELL


    I am Samph. I am cool. I miss wells. Wells were cool. This is my PO Profwell.

    I joined in May 2012. I was a user. I played trivia. I dun got promoted to TA in July. I dicked about with Elements and Key in TrivReview. I asked Ele ‘wot can I do to help more’, and tried to do projects like the Wiki grammar patrol and report things and stuff. Zero also got me to help with editing and correcting posts on the forums, so I got a forum editor badge as well.

    In October (I think) Hangman came along. It was not official at this point. There was a shithead in there. I asked Moogle what could be done and she made me a channel owner of it. This then started a campaign for equal rights for Hangman, leading to it becoming official in February (iirc) of 2013 and me being the very first sHA/HA. In January 2013, I dun got modded and all that too.

    In March or April they must have thought I was the shit, because I got adminned. In July of that year (it may have been early August at that point), while I was captain of the Solrock Rovers in the POCL, I became an smod/adminget on forums. By this point I was a/an:

    • Overlord of Hangman/sHA.
    • Tournaments director
    • League co-ordinator
    • Head of the copy editing squad for the wiki (long story short this did not get far at this point)
    • Maker of themes (pls use Floral it is the best)


    I am sure I did other stuff, but if I did I forgot.

    I do all of the stuff above even now, though I am head of GP (grammar patrol) for Competitive Analyses now instead of the wiki. At the moment, the team is pretty much myself, so if you wish to help out on this project, send me a forum PM. Who knows, it may start your journey up the ladder! I gained a bf too, because as you know, PO is not a dating simulator!

    In terms of battling, I suck, but I enjoy it. You are more likely to see me end up using whatever the hell sets/mons that I want, so yeah. Have fun with that if you see me on the ladder.

    Hobbies etc. I like anime, video games (RPGS an’ stuff), reading, teaching, making jewellery, baking/cooking (I like talking about this), Formula 1, and other stuff I am sure I have forgotten.

    Feel free to ask questions, god knows how I will respond. =)

    Would you continue to PO if Oak quit?

    Do you feel PO will cease to exist as Showdown grows more popular, or that PO will always have a niche?

    Favourite Indigo ppl to talk to?


    Now for the real questions:
    IF U WERE SINGLE AND I WAS SINGLE COULD WE BE TOGETHER?

    WHAT MORE DISAPPOINTING SMALL PENIS OR BAD GRAMMAR?

    IF I CHANGE NAME TO PROFESSOR AFRO SMASH WIL U DATE ME?

    BEST NUTL THAT ISNT WEAVILE OR DAYBREAK?

    Favourite F1 driver ever?

    How would you feel if Hamilton wins Brazil with a Rosberg dnf then the reverse happens in Dubai and Rosberg wins with 1 point.

    How would you feel if this happened?

    With 3 words, describe each of Mafia, Hangman, Trivia and Tournaments to the best of your ability.

    Sanic, Doritos, Weed, Skrillex or "mmmm wacha say"?

    Best anime that you haven't told me to watch already?

    Why do you think that Pedro/Nigel/Mexican/Paul/Lyle Boyce/"Honorary Banter Bus Passangers" banter is not as good as Ele/Key banter?

    Will you ever return to your lovable TA self again?

    Describe tfw you catch Oak wearing a fedora.

    Choose 3 members of staff, of any rank. Tag them in your post and give them something to improve on (real talk things, not bad jokes).

    Have you ever considered playing Pokémon proper seriously? If not, why, if yes, why didn't you?

    Do you feel that you, so far brief, life as a teacher has taught you new things, what are some of the more interesting of these things?
    Related; did your long-term goal of being a teacher lose its luster when it actually happened, or was it more or less what you expected?

    The single contribution to PO that you think mattered the most that you made?
    The same question for everyone else as a collective.

    have no idea who they are?

    Finally, what are your thoughts on user Versace Python Cased getting LU Tier Leader?

    :)

    If I got an A* in English, would you be proud of me?
    If I got at least 5 B's or above at the end of the year, would you be proud of me?
    Any good revision stuff I could use for the end of KS4 / Year 11 exams?
    What is it like being a supply teacher? Is it something like you'd want to do for a couple more years or would you like to become a full-time teacher as quick as you can (continuing on your response to Xinc's question)?
    Thoughts of me as a person on PO? If you don't like answering these questions, I'll perfectly understand.
    Are you happy that they're making a Paddington Bear movie? Would you go and see it?
    Opinion of Marvel/DC?
    Would you want to move anywhere out of the south of England in the future, like living in a different country or moving further north up the country? Why/why not?
    Would you like to drive / can you drive already?
    Do you think more people should watch F1?
    Do you watch Top Gear? If so, looking forward to the Argentina Special?
    Best (chocolate) biscuit?
    Jaffa Cakes or Oreos?

    Thoughts on E. M. Cioran?
    Anand or Carlsen in the WCC? Score of the match?
    I've always fantasized about "How to disappear completely and never be found" (thanks to Radiohead). If you were to disappear and take up a new identity, where would you most like to locate yourself, and what would you most like to do?
    Can I be given powers as special contributor to Trivia categories Sports and Music, even though I never play any other trivia that doesn't involve these categories and have no real interest in the channel in general? Did I put the comma in the right place in that sentence? It didn't feel right.
    I'm going to watch Argo this weekend. I also plan on watching Michael Clayton soon. I'm with the times.
    Why does nobody except Miku appreciate all my cool song games in Hangman?

    How well do you think the server rules are upheld? Same for the forums?
    Is there anything you'd change about the rules?
    What is this bone you have to pick with Trivia?
    What type do you see yourself as?
    How much activity do you think event games actually gain?
    What do you think of webcomics?
    Do you read any?
    Which contest stat do you find most appealing?
    Mafia is currently a lot less active than either Trivia or Hangman. How do you think this could be fixed?
    Is the poll supposed to be a statement, a question or a fill in the blank?

    How come Floral doesn't display the base stat of a pokemon if the stat isn't 100 or above?

    Example: [​IMG]

    Why are u always mean to me? Rip the dream

    What is hangman? I legit have no idea..

    What's your favorite pokemon?

    Between Case and I, which LUTL is the most of an obnoxious shithead? Follow-up question: Why case?

    were u impressed by dashspace lord Omfuga's skills in getting 8 badges in 1 day and conquering the PO league's gym leaders??

    Are you excited to host POYT (or whatever they're renaming it)??

    How could you hate all salad?? that doesn't make sense to me... not taco salad, pasta salad, potato salad, or any kind of salad?

    If you could bring a contributor or member back to PO, who would it be?

    How do u feel about ex-user heather star??

    how do u feel about me friend
