Challenge Someone To: Guess The Duolingoer #4

Since it's literally been a year since the last edition, I'm holding another one! Besides, after a whole year, there's even more people to guess and choose from ;)

The games really simple, you just provide some clues and everyone has to guess the person. You can do it in another language to make it even more challenging ;)

Of course, the only rule is that the person has to be a Duolingoer. And have fun!

I'll go first: (The clues can be as silly as you like, someone wrote riddles once)

  1. Very blue.... Like blue.
  2. Is a global mod

Another one:

  1. Their life (and typing style) is a poem

  2. Has a HUGE streak anniversary today.

And another one:

  1. Likes whistling... (hint, hint)

  2. Is level 25 in 7 languages.

  3. Refer back to hint number 1

And another one: (No, I'm not trying to be like DJ Khaled)

  1. Has a black and white handrawn profile pic.

  2. Is a shining star both literally and figuratively in our community.

  3. The number 2011

  2. He currently can't comment.

  3. His hair is awesome! So are his sunglasses.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aria487

Heeeey, how come I hadn't seen this?! And how come no-one has responded?! The first one is lady Tigress, then grinning wide me, then, hmm, Cam and Alex? And thanks for choosing me :D

(corrected a minor mistake, likely caused by the keyboard)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JamesX42

Hey! How are you? Good thing they haven't taken Discussion away yet. And yes, you're correct on all users. Also, you're welcome. Really, I'd be even lonelier if you weren't here.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aria487

Hi my lady :D "Haven't taken away discussions" is right. :-/ You know, after this comment of yours, I think you might understand how bad I feel on Duolingo after the removal of Activity. :-/ I know you're there, at least. And it's not like there's no fun at all, there are still the trees; I plan to get myself to Irish level 25. (And come on, Juliette, 108 XP to level 15?!)
You can talk to me anytime, I'd be delighted! :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JamesX42

I really wish that they'd figure out SOMETHING for us to talk on. Like really, Labs isn't useful. They've got a total of one project that doesn't seem to be coming along very well, and it doesn't help us communicate. XD I didn't realize how close I was to another level, I think I'll go earn it right now..... Also, don't worry, I will take you up on your offer to chat once in a while. :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JamesX42

Sigh....... I just wish we could talk properly, somehow.

Thanks, I like leveling up :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aria487

I really wish they see us more valuable than guinea pigs. If we're not, communication phase of the experiment is past, we won't get anything.

Yay!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JamesX42

I agree. If we're just for testing with before they make everything cost money, then they'll try taking everything away without realizing that we'll all leave, and then they'll try putting things back, but it wouldn't be the same.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aria487

Oh I think they realize that people leave, but they don't care that much; the world has a 7,300,000,000 population, they look for new users. No, it won't be the same, but not for new users, sadly. :-/

Congrats on level 15! :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aria487

Can't give up hope, can we? Cheer up! :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JamesX42

I'll try, I've just been very lonely these past few weeks. Life isn't my biggest fan at the moment.

Hey, look what I just edited.... https://www.duolingo.com/comment/22025265$from_email=comment_id=23359449 Hopefully it won't get deleted super fast.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aria487

Remember that heroes must do some tasks alone; without anyone else physically at their side. Use this loneliness to discover yourself!

Huh! One thing; that will likely attract attention. (People may be subscribed by email) Let me see if I can get a less populated post. I'll let you know.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JamesX42

Hello, Tigresa! I will gladly hunt with you, I've been working up a bit of an appetite today. I have found there is no sport in chasing the bird, though, as it does not run nor attempt to elude me.

Edit: I have now eaten and am digesting Introduction.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FloweringIris.

Sorry for posting here, but this user keeps refollowing me for no reason.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aria487

Iris, can you check CT? There's something I'd like your input on.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FloweringIris.

Sorry, could you please send me the link? I lost it somehow...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aria487

Hi Iris! [Whoops the rest of the message was cut because of an unsupported emoji] It's delightful to see you here! I hope you're doing well and your stuff is going all right. Posting anywhere is fine by me. If that user is being annoying, block them!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FloweringIris.

Hi Aria! Great to see you too :) I'm fine and I hope you are too! Thanks, but Usagi was helping me.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aria487

I'm good! :D Good thing you contacted them.

About Shane, I don't know what to say. I didn't know him right, but still, that bush chase happened on his post. You two were acquainted, right? May he find find peace in the embrace of the God.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JamesX42

Shane is gone? I had been looking forward to maybe talking to him when I got back to Duolingo.............. I think I might cry. I wanted to get to know him better, he was one of my first friends on Duolingo, and now I never will.......


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JamesX42

I appreciate the sentiment, but as I don't believe in any sort of afterlife, or rebirth, or anything similar to heaven, I consider this the end of a friendship.

Yes, Shane was Prometheus. He was always fun to talk to, he worked hard, he stuck to what he believed in, and he loved nuestra reina Tigresa deeply. I won't forget him, now or ever.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aria487

@Juliette:
I read your message and I automatically thought "It can't all be for nothing." Never before did this belief strike me as it has now, not sure why. Maybe because little remains to be said for a passed friend. We will remember him, of course, but how long will we last ourselves? And generations after, I wouldn't expect people to remember all the names of the ones who came before; that would keep them in the past and there would be no place for anything else.
I don't mean to force my ideas upon you, my dear friend, I want to make sure you don't discard and forget this possibility. And, as a matter of fact, I'm not talking about a God, I'm talking about people being more than their bodies.
I've linked you to this song before, but please listen to it again. (I'm at a loss for words, and I don't think siting a verse of the Avesta or the Bible will help here) If you play the game or pay attention to the lyrics, you'll know that this song is about death. It doesn't reflect in the lyrics alone, but death here is not a gate to nothingness, it's a gate to life. You can see that in the hope and the glory inside the song.

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JamesX42

Aria, while you attempting to comfort me is wonderful, and the sentiments are beautiful, I really do believe that when our cells lose their grip on the replicating proteins and the DNA can no longer split properly, it is truly the end. I do not live for an afterlife; the work I do is to enrich whatever life I may have on Earth, and to give something to future generations. My name will not be in history books, most likely; if I'm very lucky, someone in the future may read my poetry, may empathize with emotions of someone long gone. My hope of immortality is through what I say, what I write, and what I do.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DreamingOdelia

Hello Sweet Juliet, I am so sorry that you and your friend are presently separated. I do hope that you will find each other one day. Wait, Shane died? OMG I AM so very sorry. I still hope that you will be reunited one day.

Is Shane Prometheus? Iris, do you know what happened? Was he sick? Did he have an accident?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DreamingOdelia

"Some things are true whether you believe in them or not." A quote from the movie City of Angels. (1998)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Usagiboy7

I agree, and Odelia tends to have some really great quotes in general. :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FloweringIris.

I don't know how to put this in other words, but did you hear that Shane died?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aria487

Oddly, Juliette, I find that I don't work for immortality either. There's this very famous poem by Zhaale Esfahani (not so famous herself) that part of it came to mind:
زندگی صحنه ی یکتای هنرمندی ماست
هر کسی نغمه ی خود خواند و از صحنه رود
صحنه پیوسته به جاست
خرم آن نغمه که مردم بسپارند به یاد
A very bad translation, for the sake of context:
Life is the unique scene of our artistry,
Each sings her/his/their song and goes apart,
The scene tarries around.
Exuberant is the song people call to mind.

My here and now is what matters most, and I'm going to try and sing a memorable song for this world. And what use would I be if I mindlessly followed instructions?

Regarding afterlife, in my current opinion, heaven seems boring and hell is very dreadful. (Although God is supposed to change that, heaven being boring, I mean) I like afterlife for one thing though; I could talk to people I otherwise can't. However, I plan to be of the ones that are going to heaven, but I want to ask God for another earthly life while preserving my memories, if possible. There might be another timeline parallel to ours that hasn't ended, or I could go back and forth in time. These are just ideas, of course, nothing concrete and final, and I might change my mind this very tomorrow!

Anyway, I'm being distracted. Although you're my good friend and I have a lot of respect for you, I simply can't believe that I'm equal to my body. I'm something more than DNA, and I'll never be summarized in a lab. (And I've gone through a very deep level of questioning of nearly everything and everyone, and re-built a foundation from scratch.)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FloweringIris.

Oooh, that's a great quote, Odelia :-)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FloweringIris.

I just noticed, Ryan's and Christy's accounts are gone....does anyone know why?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aria487

Plus, you don't "deactivate" a Memrise account; you can only delete it entirely, and her Memrise account was deleted a couple weeks ago. And I never understood their purpose for anything, really.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FloweringIris.

What do you mean by "their"? The accounts or...? I still see their accounts on Memrise.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aria487

I mean the two people. Oh, how interesting! I can see her account on my list now; but apparently, I'm not following her! (Following now) She'd just disappeared everywhere then.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JamesX42

Hey, everyone! I'm back for real this time! How are you all? Sorry I was gone so long (twice), I promise I won't just disappear again.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aria487

Hi Juliette, we've been missing you over here! I've been totally busy, but happy with it! :D But, you have the right to disappear anytime and for any reason, no need to make promises not to! Not that I want you gone (!) but still, that's one of your rights!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JamesX42

Yeah, but I plan to keep that promise, and want to, so there's no problem making it. :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aria487

Your call, but I still think everyone should need to disappear for some time! :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JamesX42

Hi! Finally got Duo on my tablet, so I should be on more often now. Am learning Japanese now as well, it's a beautiful language, but so complicated!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aria487

Yay Juliette! And good luck with Japanese!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DreamingOdelia

Yay to both of you! :-) I miss the activity stream so much that I sometimes find it difficult to breathe. I have a new feature that rewards you for following new friends because this shows how friendly you are. (?) Why? We can't freely talk to anyone. This simply felt cruel. The two of you make me smile and hope that one day we will be able to communicate easier.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JamesX42

Thanks, Aria! Its good to be back, and Japanese is interesting even though it's hard. Also, yeah, Evelyn, I agree. They need to bring back Activity, or have some sort of permanent chat room.

              [deactivated user]

                yes it's ValiantTiger


                https://www.duolingo.com/profile/brownshanon

                Let me give it a shot :D A part of this person's username is a nickname given to her by her friends because of a very funny occurrence :P The nickname is the name of an animal. She also loooves snow :D


                https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aria487

                Who downvoted this? It's important(ish) to this Duo community. I understand disliking advertising, but I'm not merely promoting my own work, I'm trying to reach out to my friends and Duofamily.

                  Правильно! Isn‘t he just an amazing contributor to Duolingo? Did you know that he lives in Belarus (Russians ‘white’ neighbour)? He also knows Belausian, which explains his username, since шэрая жаба — серая жаба in Belarusian.


                  https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-Sapphira-

                  2) Uses a lot of ellipses when she speaks.

                  3) Very mature for her age.

                  4) Apparently sitting alone in a corner.

                  5) Not always optimistic, but is still an astounding person!

                  She's a bit introverted, so I don't know if anyone will guess who she is...

                  1. They are level 25 in Welsh
                  2. They are very helpful in the forums
                  3. They would like to be a rugby player

                  I think the last one kind of gives it away ;)

                  Is this person DuoFlash?


                  https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AnIsAPandah

                  Makes me sad knowing I cant do another one of these :(


                  https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AnIsAPandah

                  Wait I'm dumb of course I can :P


                  https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aria487

                  You don't know everyone, trust me! :-) Neither do I!


                  https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JamesX42

                  Aaaaaaaaaannnnnniiiiiieeeeee....... Do you still exist? Are you alive, my panda-y friend? Or have you left us as well?


                  https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Diana14283

                  Hmmm. Your first clue reminds me of Aria487. https://www.duolingo.com/Aria487
                  Her profile pic is blue. But, that's just my guess. :)


                  https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Multi0Lingual4

                  Not a global mod. Not even a moderator, as far as I'm aware. I'm going to guess Usagi, although it's not 100% blue.


                  https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Diana14283

                  Oh! I thought that those clues were clues for two separate Duolingo users.

                  https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-Forbidden-

                  this is actually an awesome idea bc whenever I see that a comment is deleted I'm always curious why


                  https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aria487

                  Me too :D Usually, the replies and the comments above will give a clue. I try to be as accountable as possible!

                  Hey Aria, I was wondering how should I contact you since activity is gone? :'(

                  Edit: I just realized, since you have a memrise account, maybe we can go here and send private messages: https://community.memrise.com/ :D


                  https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aria487

                  I worked my way to a Basic trust level, so I can message people now, sent you a message!
                  Or we can keep in touch in CommunityTranslation, I sent you a private message there.
