Still none correct! I do wonder if anyone's getting the hint about NSFY, or if they're just trying to stumble upon the correct mixture of words by pure chance. xD

QBRanger July 29 2007 11:27 PM EDT

We know what your asking, however, most of us do not know what NSFY stands for, hence the "hint" is nothing to most of us.

QBOddBird July 29 2007 11:34 PM EDT

Perhaps you don't have to know what NSFY stands for.

No more hints from PPF for now! =X

Slashundhack [We Forge Our Own Stuff] July 30 2007 1:19 AM EDT

I googled it means "No soup for you". You know the Soup Nazi from Seinfeld ? Well probably .

Brain dump for some things I know about NSFY:

-- Talks about Scrapple a lot (or at least used to).
-- Has often wanted the CB title of "Ombudsman", including a rainbow-colored, flashing moniker label for his user name.
-- Giggles uncontrollably when thinking of goats that easily tip over.
-- Cannot stay away from CB, no matter how he may try.

Still have no idea what "PPF" would mean, however...

"-- Has often wanted the CB title of "Ombudsman", including a rainbow-colored, flashing moniker label for his user name."


OB, are you Swedish? Ombudsman is a Swedish word.

Lady Die July 30 2007 5:15 PM EDT

I got it.. Finally, after much thought(and an email that there's a new Foamy Video)!!

Pyro Pirate Foamy!!

Yea, okay, I'm a nut.

QBsutekh137 July 30 2007 5:43 PM EDT

According to WikiPedia:

An ombudsman (English plural: ombudsmans or ombudsmen) is an official, usually (but not always) appointed by the government or by parliament, who is charged with representing the interests of the public by investigating and addressing complaints reported by individual citizens.

So, while the word may have Swedish origins, it is also a generic word as stated above. If you search for "ombudsmen" in forum archives, I can virtually assure you that most threads dealing with the concept involve NSFY. I can also assure you that it is always 100% fun reading. *smile*

Still no correct guesses thus far...~_^ if there aren't any correct ones by tomorrow, I'll make the next hint a flat-out give-it-away. However, the prize for this contest will be reduced accordingly.

no correct guesses so far, so I'll have to pretty much give it away with the next hint. ~_^ Coming soon!

QBOddBird August 1 2007 9:40 AM EDT


February was a good month. *smiles*

Slashundhack [We Forge Our Own Stuff] August 1 2007 2:20 PM EDT

Your welcome to it man but were is the obvious hint ??Party past February ?

QBRanger August 1 2007 4:59 PM EDT

Well it seems that the F will be February but the PP is the part that, to me, is not that obvious given NSFY typically stands for No Soup For You.

Perhaps the CB community as a whole is just very stupid.

drudge August 1 2007 6:09 PM EDT

maybe there being over 5,000 combinations, its a little too tough

Slashundhack [We Forge Our Own Stuff] August 1 2007 8:58 PM EDT

I vote for stupid hmmm p words for stupid !

Slashundhack [We Forge Our Own Stuff] August 1 2007 9:18 PM EDT

Slashundhack [We Forge Our Own Stuff] August 1 2007 9:29 PM EDT

OK here's my thought in Feb. you had a exchange with NSFY in the threads that caused you to change your name. I looked but got tired of skimming some one else ?

Lady Die August 1 2007 9:35 PM EDT

Got tired of skimming here too.. I give up.

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] August 1 2007 10:21 PM EDT

Punxsutawney Phil's February?

Pennsylvania's Punxsutawney Fill?

If it's the latter, there's more wrong with you than has previously been suspected. :P

QBOddBird August 1 2007 11:11 PM EDT

Slash - close, but no cigar. I did not have an exchange with NSFY in February that caused me to change my name.

amazing someone actually won a contest like this one

Tezmac August 2 2007 12:39 AM EDT

Thanks OB! Gotta give credit where credit is due though, Slash led me in the right direction :O)

Mem August 2 2007 12:45 AM EDT

I'm a little perturbed as to how that was supposed to be obvious, OB. I don't feel the slightest bit dumb for having not "figured" it out, and neither should the rest of the CB community! We're not dumb after all...

QBOddBird August 2 2007 1:05 AM EDT

I never said anyone should feel dumb, and I apologize if anyone feels slighted for having not figured it out. However, I felt the clues provided were more than abundant enough at that point to easily find from whence the name came (and as the answer came less than 24 hours later, I feel this was likely the case).

That doesn't make anyone dumber for not having figured it out, just means they were headed in the wrong direction. Each clue was intended to push someone off a different track and onto another.

1. NSFY was to direct you to NSFY's account.
2. Not having to know what NSFY meant was to direct people away from deciphering the 'NSFY' acronym.
3. I then clarified further that it was NSFY, the person, and stated the clan he owned.
4. More subtle hint: NSFY's comments are always 100% fun reading.
5. User image with a Ferret in it.
6. The month within which the post was made. NSFY responds to very few threads, so I figured at this point I would have to reduce the prize, as it made it much a much quicker solve.

Hopefully that explained it to you a bit better, Mem, and again, sorry that you felt perturbed about not finding the solution.

Mem August 2 2007 1:31 AM EDT

It's quite alright. ;)

QBOddBird August 2 2007 1:40 AM EDT

I'm not going to be able to change my name to this after all, it turns out. =\ Shame.
