"Advanced Profiling"

"Advanced Profiling"

Short, concise description of the idea
online quizzes are all the rage. these quiz result displays are all just HTML snippets. even though HTML can be pasted into the Bio section, i think users would love to have 5-10 "slots" designates specifically for quiz results.

Full description of the idea
the more journals i see,the more apparent it is that people really love this quizzes. what kind of mage are you what kind of vegatable are you which star wars character are you etc. easily 1/3 of my friends list on a daily basis is quiz results. i've been thinking about why. pictures are worth a thousand words (they say). so how many words is a pop culture reference worth? i think what we see in this phenomena is that quiz results create a quick, easy, and -potent- way for people to express an aspect of themselves to others. long story short. these quiz result displays are all just HTML snippets. how hard would it be, and is there any interest in, providing (maybe for paid users only?) 5-10 "slots" in a person's user info page, to display their favorite quiz results? yes, i know that HTML can go in the Bio section, but, over-all page display would be fairly disrupted if someone did this. not to mention time-to-load pulling all that big content from other servers, etc. this feature could be a link at the bottom of the page, kind of like the "more info" which takes you to full mode. have a "see my favorite quizzes" or "quiz based profile".

An ordered list of benefits

  • highly potent profiling media
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • page bloat
  • formatting
  • reasonableness of size
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • either create a zone on the user info page itself, or a link from the user info page to a quiz profile page.
