What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 122 Stack Exchange communities.

Whose profile page has left you quivering in its awesomeness and impressed upon you so much that you want your profile to have that profile's babies?

Conditions of impression being any of the following:

  • Design
  • Language
  • Humor
  • Information
  • Credentials
  • Awesomeness.

EDIT: Come on guys! Just this many... I am sure its not just humorous use of expletives that impresses us! Give me more... I consider that space to be prime real estate... let me know who has made the most creative use of it.

And the chosen one is: The Creator of SO League of Web Justice

Awesome work MicTech !!!

I don't think the "About Me" sections were ever intended to impress - it might be more interesting to ask which user's CV is most impressive. –  Kyle Cronin Dec 6 '09 at 1:56

Thanks random, you have really brought out the emotion of this question with your edit. –  Troggy Dec 6 '09 at 6:19
    
@Kyle Thats the whole point of this question being subjective! What you mention is from the "credentials" perspective...but your "About Me" section section should impress someone enough to peruse your CV ...right? –  Xencor Dec 6 '09 at 22:07

Well, now that you have a bounty, everyone is going to submit their own so they get the rep. Is that what you intended? –  Troggy Dec 7 '09 at 6:04

If they've fixed up the bug with bounties, Welbog will only win if reposted into a new answer. –  random Dec 7 '09 at 6:25
    
Hmm, now this got me thinking after seeing the 2 close votes people have done so far on this question... does a bounty continue if the question gets closed? –  Troggy Dec 7 '09 at 6:59

You can't close a question with a bounty. –  random Dec 7 '09 at 13:49

"I consider that space to be prime real estate" - why not update your own? –  akf Dec 7 '09 at 18:20

@random. Moderators can. However I am not touching this question with a 10 foot pole. –  Diago Dec 7 '09 at 18:31

So what happens if it hits 5 close votes? –  Troggy Dec 7 '09 at 19:08

@Troggy: It won't. Try voting to close. –  mmyers Dec 7 '09 at 21:28
    
@mmyers: Cool, I see what you mean now. –  Troggy Dec 7 '09 at 22:15

There are some good ones in this query (users with images in their AboutMe section):

A couple of my favorites:

You really like this guy, don't you? –  mmyers Dec 7 '09 at 21:29
    
Gah, bad link. Thanks, fixed. –  Joel Coehoorn Dec 7 '09 at 22:44
    
Unless something more impressive comes up...this is the strongest contender...MicTech's stuff is cool! –  Xencor Dec 10 '09 at 3:59
    
This is one case where I'm sad to remove the StackQL link: StackQL showed the formated html in the results, making it very easy to spot the good images. –  Joel Coehoorn Mar 19 '13 at 21:31
    
Could anyone provide a query that ignores falir? Some are impressive but I don't think they are impressive in the spirit of this question ;) –  Mołot Oct 17 '13 at 11:24

It could be a hit rap song...if done right! –  Xencor Dec 4 '09 at 5:39

That is fairly awesome. –  synack Dec 4 '09 at 7:11

"It could be a hit rap song" -> Seems like it already was... "White America" by Eminem. Seems suspiciously similar in several places. –  Dan McGrath Dec 4 '09 at 8:37
    
I can assure you that I have never heard of this so-called "White America" by Eminem, Danny McGee. –  XMLbog Dec 4 '09 at 11:51

It is too bad that cussing is considered art or impressing. –  malach Dec 7 '09 at 12:52

I consider it funny. Funny is on the list. –  Robert Harvey Dec 7 '09 at 16:57

Jeff's sycophant 2009-12-08 18:17:11Z meta profile, you have to be specific it could change at any minute.

I have posted a snapshot below so it's artistic beauty is not lost forever when he changes it next.

Hey man
Do you like Jeff Atwood?

**** yeah you do.

- Holy **** all of those blog posts are written to static HTML files for faster page serving. It's like his webserver can unleash a mother****ing army of HTML tags toward your mac address at a moment's notice *******!
- He's copied the mother****ing coding horror logo guy from Steven "the steaming pipe" McConnell. WHAT THE **** how can he just copy a guy's ******* idea like that I mean holy ****ing crap he's gotta be a copyright wizard or some ****.
- Are you gonna read boring Joel Spolsky or nerdy Dean Whelton? **** no, you want Jeff Atwood **** yes!
- I hear he figured out how programmers can collaborate without being evil about it or some ****. That doesn't make any ****ing sense!
- He doesn't like people who speak foreign languages very much. Even some languages that aren't languages like Lojban. WTF is Lojban? **** you, I don't know.
- Dear mother****ing **** he programs at seventeen lines per minute and nothing is faster than seventeen lines per minute because Carmack said so *******

I think Welbog secretly want's to be George Carlin, or maybe he is secretly George Carlin

can't be - George Carlin is funny. –  Steven A. Lowe Dec 8 '09 at 19:51
    
Any day now he'll change his name to George Carlin. –  Super Long Names are Hilarious Dec 10 '09 at 6:24

@CmMNiC Nah, he has to pander to Jeff a little longer –  Larry Dec 10 '09 at 8:25
