If your best friend…your sibling…your co-worker…whomever…would have to describe you in one word, what would it be? Curious? I was, so I threw it out there on twitter. The responses I got were awesome! I decided then and there I would create this site.
The premise is simple: one word descriptions of you. That is all. Nothing fancy. Just a fun idea that I think other people will enjoy as much as you. Interested? Click the sign up button on the right. Why not? It is free and there are no strings attached.
How it works
When you sign up, you will get your own page where people you tell about your page will leave words that they think describe you. Other people will be able to vote these words up or down as they see fit. Votes can be cast by any registered member on any other member’s page. You cannot vote for words on your own page…that would be pointless.
So, say someone leave a crappy word on your page. Something that is only meant as offensive. Don’t worry, you can delete it. Also, say you leave a word on someone else’s page that you wish you hadn’t. You can delete that as well.
Register using the link on the right. As soon as you hit submit on the registration form, your MeInOneWord.com page is created at http://meinoneword.com/username. However, no one will be able to add words until you verify your account. Once you have confirmed your registration, your page is open for use. Just send everyone you know your page address and let the fun begin.
As a registered user, you can add words to other people’s pages that will back-link to your page. Want to add a word anonymously? No problem. Just check the “Submit Anonymously” box and you are good to go.
Non-registered users can also add words to your page if they choose. They can leave their name or not…it is up to them.
That is pretty much it. Pretty simple, huh? What are you waiting for? Register today!
What you get
You will get your own a page where others can go to add one-word descriptions of you. As time goes by, your list will grow. You will be able to find out what other people think — either anonymously or publicly. I guarantee you will have some fun.
What you will not get
Another twitter, facebook, or MySpace. Comments are not enabled. This is not meant to be a social networking site. It is only here for your — and others’ — entertainment. Another thing you will not get is a bunch of annoying emails. It is just me behind the scenes, so you can rest assured no one is going to bombard you with a bunch of crap you don’t want.
Be courteous. This is a fun place to drop a word that comes to mind when you think of a person. This is not a place to verbally bash people. Racist, vulgar, inappropriate, or just plain mean comments are not allowed and will get your account deleted. Yes, I am serious.
